    Good observation.
    Man has Satan to help him make false gods.

    Man cannot even make a flea using his own 'vast intelligence'. The mad ones believe they were made by no intelligence whatsoever.

    Who in their right mind would want to make a flea?

    Two Star Indonesian hotels that don't want that Third Star... and all the responsibilities and expectations that come with it.

    There's a whole heap of stuff that man can make now that he couldn't make a hundred years ago, maybe you shouldn't be so hasty. Or indeed so quick to label people 'mad' for not sharing your superstitious beliefs.

    What is superstitious about acknowledging some people believe fleas were made without intelligence?

    Remember, Offer Fetchmyjunk Labotomy?

    And you conflate 'made' with 'evolved.' No one made a flea, intelligent or otherwise.

    Nothing, obviously. Are you having difficulty understanding what I was referring to or are you just trying to emulate FMJ? It doesn't really suit you.

    You know that as a fact or you just believe it?
