We've had this discussion before. You do not understand evolution. Learn it first, then try to debate it.

The JW connection renders his life a ready-made movie biopic. Like Tom Cruise and Scientology.

Best quote seen re Prince: "He was the only guy who could steal your girlfriend, steal her clothes, and then steal another guy's girlfriend-- while wearing your girlfriend's clothes."

And then write a hit song where he sings about doing it.

I believe that was his point. We are told that going from "skull to skull to skull to skull" shows evidence of gradual changes over time. But, each "skull to skull" does not show gradual change. I saw the skulls lined up side by side. Each skull is completely different than the one before it which shows rapid change, not gradual change.

If you take a look at the skulls yourself doing a google search, you will see each skull is completely different than the one before it. There is no "gradual change."

I have said many times before that even if Christianity did not exist, I would still be skeptical of evolution.

Not likely. Without xianity, the likelihood of another religion suppressing the knowledge of such a rudimentary aspect of biology is pretty low. You'd likely have heard references to evolution since you were a child. You would have grown up knowing dinosaurs lived millions of years ago, you would have picked your jaw up off the ground the first time someone told you modern day birds are related, and you would have learned a bit more. Over the years these little experiences would have woven together a general but sufficient understanding of what evolution is and how it works. The lessons you'd learn from your parents wouldn't have included a 6000-10,000 year old earth, or the idea that biodiversity can be explained by a single week's work. You'd have no reason to be any more skeptical of it than you are of gravity. It likely wouldn't occur to you or anyone you know to be skeptical of it. It would be totally normal to you. Granted, another superstitious belief would likely impact your perceptions, as we are generally superstitious creatures, but only those superstitions you would be familiar with.

I did not learn those things from my parents. I was an atheist when I was younger and then became a Christian later on in life. I am skeptical of evolution because some of the things do not add up in my mind.

I was listening to a lecture by Lloyd Pye and before you guys go bonkers, he believes evolution is false but aliens made us. I do not agree with him about the aliens but when he's pointing out all the lies that the scientists tell us about evolution, that is what makes sense.

He pointed out how skeletons are constructed to look pre-human because they are paid to go out and find pre-human fossils. So they have to skew the data to make it fit in order to get paid. He was showing how the arm of an early hominid is actually much longer and should almost reach the floor, but scientists doctored the arm to make it appear shorter and more human.

He also pointed out how there is no "gradual change" between the neanderthal skulls, hominid skulls, Australopithecus skulls, and the human skulls. You have a fully formed neanderthal skull then you have a fully formed hominid skull. There is nothing showing "small change." The evidence shows "rapid change." Our jaws are nothing like our ancestors despite being told that we come from them. Their jaws do not show "gradual change" to our jaws. It shows completely different jaws.

As for divorce, your supposed savior said it was wrong, with no excuses and this savior also said that all of the idiotic laws of the bible were still to be followed, no exceptions.

I think Jesus said that divorce is wrong except in cases of adultery, then Jesus said anyone who thinks a lustful thought or looks at someone lustfully has committed adultery... every human being on the planet capable of having sex has done this... therefore ---   DRUMROLL

Nobody should get a divorce except for... EVERYBODY!

No worries, Emma. Balance in one's life is as important as it is fleeting  ;). Hope to see you around when you can spare the time.

Thanks again everybody. Hoping to get back to more regular reading posting soon! ;) I'm probably not going to be as active as I was (have a lot going on offline and unfortunately have to start prioritising it much more than I have been for some time), but still plan to get back to fairly regular participation in the fairly near future!
