^^^Uh. Why are you here again?  :angel:
Extraordinary claims of the bible don't even have ordinary evidence.

Kids aren't paying attention most of the time in science classes so it seems silly to get worked up over ID being taught in schools.

meaningless

Of course it is. That was my intent. Your desire to give it meaning is causing you problems.

It is what it is. It isn't what you want it to be. Big difference.

Added: P.S. When your posts are only one word long, you sound pretty coherent.

Hi cloverleaf

welcome to our forum.  My use of green text indicates I am acting as a moderator in this post and not participating in the discussion.

Please note the topic of this thread is "What is your religious position?" not "preach at us."  Please either state your religious position as defined in the Original Post, or make your arguments elsewhere.  Otherwise, we just have chaos here and no one wants that. 

Thanks.

Agnostic atheist here. Not a gnostic because I don't think we're talking about a claim that can be known. Not an ignostic because I think the concept of a God has meaning. Not an apnostic (hey, I learned a new word!) because I do care whether or not gods exist.

I suppose I'd also be an adeist if we ever get around to inventing that word.
