    you are beginning to be more and more offensive.

    do you care?

    i am a theist. i understand most but the most particular details of genetics. thus i have no problem understanding and accepting (not believing) evolution as fact.


    care to reformulate your post? or stand by your offensive post?

    Sorry, forgot to put on joke smiley. I was thinking of a song by Woody Guthrie, where he said of a shelter soup kitchen, the soup was so thin even a politician can see through it๐Ÿ™‚ Not wanting to offend, just a joke.

    I believe I have already presented enough material so we understand it. We just don't believe this nonsense about fish, frogs, and apes becoming humans.

    Wow, I am totally surprised at your reaction. I though you would read through the book and come to the conclusion that evolution wasn't evil after all.

    I think you're going to have to define what you mean by 'intelligence' if you're going to include yourself in that 'we'.

    I already did. Intelligence is the ability to understand. Do you understand?

    That is a fatuous definition if ever I heard one. Do you understand why?
