If you speak to Him, it's a prayer.
If He speaks to you, it's shysophrenia.

I think that you just have provided irrefutable proof that no intelligent being was involved in your creation.

Thank you for clearing that up.

I wouldn't get my hopes up in that regard. On another post he just blurted out the number '9': http://www.benzworld.org/forums/1997487-post4.html

I was being facetious, hence the rofl.

Or is it Chysophrenuia?

In any case, I tend to believe that Jesus story had proven to the human kind that it is (at the very least )deadly wrong to execute an innocent and such an action can bring unforeseen consequences to the world of executioners..

Actually I was agreeing with you...after reading your posts it is clear that there was no divine or intelligent intervention in your creation.

What? You don't like people agreeing with you?

Oh well.

BTW, Wikipedia defines sarcasm as:

Sarcasm is sneering, jesting, or mocking a person, situation or thing. It is strongly associated with irony, with some definitions classifying it as a type of verbal irony[1]. It is often used in a humorous manner and is expressed through vocal intonations such as over-emphasizing the actual statement or particular words.

Since you got the point of my post, perhaps some intelligent being was responsible for your creation...but doesn't that defeat the whole purpose behind your claim of being an agnostic.

Ponder that.

Pondering....

Intelligent design says life on Earth is too complex to have developed through evolution, implying that a higher power must have had a hand in creation.

If intelligent design should be given equal standing with the theory of evolution, then that undermines the understanding of science, Intelligent design' is not a scientific theory.

Evolution states that plant, animals and lower life forms are all subject to change over time, and that changes can bring about new species with differing characteristics. Humans are said to have evolved from other primates.

Intelligent design is an attempt to force religion into science. Intelligent design has no support from any observable evidence. Evolution, on the other hand, is a well-documented theory that explains existing evidence, which draws from fossils, DNA analyses and investigations of living things.

Those who claim evolution theory has holes, would do well to understand that the majority of scientists counter that evolution is among the most solid theories of science.

The idea of intelligent design is entirely untestable, and if an idea can't be tested, then it can't be proved one way or the other and so is not a theory.

Scientific theories, like evolution, relativity and plate tectonics, are based on hypotheses that have survived extensive testing and repeated verification. Unfortunately many confuse the difference between science and belief. It is essential that people understand that a scientific theory is not a belief, hunch, or untested hypothesis.

Ponder that.
