Maybe Copper is just pretending. With all of those stupid and childish posts I suspect he is trying to show that the Bible believers are fools.

Exactly what I thought. He's a spoiler. All power to him. I couldn't do that- self respect prevents me.

There are no serious scientists today who do not think that evolution brought us to where we are today.

If you disagree please just give the name of the most prominent one.

Um, you can make up anything you want (and technically you can scientifically prove clams don't power the Sun). But there are reasons that the vast majority of people both in the US and across the world actually believe in God. So why do you feel the need to label them?

For a guy who apparently considers himself intelligent and enlightened, your attitude bespeaks one that is prejudicial -- and, dare I say, ignorant. You may as well throw the N word at the African-Americans while you're at it, as well as slam every other minority.

I certainly wouldn't label you as a dumb moron for embracing macroevolution, even though your attitude and perspective certainly suggest that conclusion.

Copper,
If you can prove God's existence, I show you the proof of men descended from apes. Fair deal?

No Bible quoting though. By the way, just in case many of you Bible believers have forgotten, or ignored, or denied. Your "Book" is borrowed and evolved from many different religions and peoples over the millenniums, including Pagan religions and devil worshiping.

Where is the purity of that?

I see you've moved from "no scientist" to "no serious scientists today." I guess that's progress...

Don't believe everything you think

I suppose you are talking about the "Old Testament" and not the "New Testament" ?

Can you disprove any of those occurances in the New Testament?
