I understand that you cannot bring yourself to question that. Your entire faith hinges on that construct. Shatter it, and rest falls with it.

^ Not true. It is a small part of my faith. I understand your new age mindset and I don't buy it.

You cannot reject the passage from Genesis I referred to, without rejecting the rest of your faith. If you believe you can, you have not considered it properly. Caterpillars, cockatoos, and kangaroos in heaven and hell, all based upon faith?

Not all my beliefs are based upon a new-age mindset (an odd nomenclature, since it predates Christianity by centuries). In this instance, it is more a case of convergent evolution. I hold an MS in Ethology.

Didn't know you could get a degree in Ethology. I always saw it as a subset of Zoology or Animal Husbandry or vet medicine. Interesting.

How do you base your caterpillar statement on the Genesis verses?

Well... Man has dominion over animals?
Hmmm.... if he's in the woods with a bear, and the bear is not happy... who wins?

Dude, get a grip!
If you believe, then just say so! Stop trying to analytically prove the point.
You cant.

Oh, one more example:

Go swimming in the ocean in a group of sharks..
I know your god will protect you. Since "It is written" that man has dominion.. ahh err...

never mind.
continue not answering questions.

Pure stupidity. Just like the snake handlers in the Ozarks.
