Yes, but This is war towns are destroyed. So a lot would be ruins. With a few people wondering around. Remote isolated places are fun, but now it's war. Battles in the streets, saving refuges, and of course, diplomacy.

Well, it says this:

And this:

text4 = "This makes sense. Humans who distrust and fear the Shapers live in places they call Refuges, places hidden from the Shapers. They are not necessarily criminals or rebels, though. Just paranoids who don't like you.";

The first was when you go into the caves. The second was when you talk to Aiglos.

I have found this argument getting quite pointless. You don’t want me (or any creationists) to give you websites quotes or anything like that. And yet, you force me to look at websites by giving information without proof and exposing me to the terrible influence of quotes. (Which are probably on the websites.) Therefore are giving yourselves a completely unfair advantage.
*I: I’m quite happy with what I believe. (As it would be stupid to try to believe something I know to be wrong.) Do you still want me to post my definitions? Well, I wont unless you give us the right to quote.

No. If you look at at a leaf and see green, then call another person over, have them see green too, then do a scientific study determining that the leaf is green, I would consider that proof.

As I understand religion you need (a ) a belief in a sacred dimension (something that goes beyond everyday, mundane stuff) (b) distinctive religious practices or behaviours that conform to (a), above and (c)rituals of religous practice that bond individuals to the sacred dimension. Together, the three items above can work to bind a community (of like minded believers) together and make it unique.
I guess you don't understand religion.
quote:
Creator, even in your example, you've created a rule. "God created the universe especially for me so that I can do whatever I want." The rule here is the "I can do whatever I want" part, because it establishes some form of sanctioned order, and here, one that is conveniently in the practitioner's interest.
You know, I just don't see how you got that out of his post. Could you show me where you got that from in his post?

The vast majority of mutations aren't beneficial. Actually, most have no real effect. Once in a while, though, a mutation is beneficial, or the result of many neutral mutations is beneficial. That's evolutionary "progress" (even though progress is the wrong word, really).

First of all, don’t post anything about micro evolution.
Second of all:
quote:
Care to give some "proof" that goes beyond anecdote? Also, who cares there isn't proof that there isn't a god? There is no proof there aren't gremlins and unicorns, but we don't believe in those.
I never said there was a God (But, now I do.)I feel the very nature of God would make it impossible to find proof. Other things “made up nature” does not prescribe that.
Third of all,
quote:
and you couldn't even address the two arguments I gave last time.
Actually at that time I didn’t have time to go look up all the different stuff it showed as the link was broke. However, I looked up some on my own and found I was partially in the wrong. The adding of genes happens, but when it does it is never helpful. That was what I was trying to point out about six legged cows.
Fourth of all:
quote:
You know what? No amount of evidence would convince you because you are unwilling to even learn the basic science behind what you are criticizing.
Again thou art wrong, I have studied science. Matter of fact I’m doing science this summer as a hobby. I just don’t have time to sit all day answering questions.
Fifth of all:
quote:
Why can't life simply be the result of a chemical reaction?" and I had no answer. What I meant, however, was not life, which could easily be the result of a chemical reaction, but consciousness. Why is it that I have a mind, that I can see and hear and think and have all these things interact? How do physical phenomena like chemical reactions and electricity cause consciousness?
Pal, sure life could’ve started by some chance. The chances are better that the CD with the instructions for my bike was made just because a lightning bolt hit someone’s trash can then melted it into a CD with the instructions already in it. Sure a spark hit some pool of chemicals. And suddenly life just started. Uh, Do you get the feeling something is wrong?

First of all it's not "science Vs. God." It's how you interperate the evidence, either theory is science. (I think that there is more evidence for creation. But, that's just my opinion.)

Microevolution has been extensively, even excessively, documented. It happens. Mutation happens and has been seen too. Macroevolution from mutation has also been documented in labs. Speciation happens and we've seen it. All that's left is "irreducible complexity,"
No, there's more than that it's how they fit togather. For example have you ever seen a six legged cow live on it's own?
