If you weren't trolling, I might actually respond.

Well, technically, you did respond.    However, I agree with you.  I'm sure any of the evolutionists can come up with a list of statements (just as dumb) from creationists.  Let's not paint each other according to our lowest common denominators.

Fair point. Posting withdrawn. I was expecting a lot of flak for evolutionists but for once it didn't happen. Odd that if you work hard to give well thought out serious work in a forum you get attacked without mercy but you get respect if you talk cobblers!

Thanks for the courteousy, though I think it'd be good to keep in mind that the aggressiveness of a debating opponent is always relative to certain factors, among them:

1.) Their age.
2.) The agressive state of the rest of the board.
3.) Their personal beliefs or past experiences.
4.) Hatred toward the topic itself.

You are right about those factors, especially the last one. Where I have to disagree with you is this. One of the 'proofs' that I mentioned and is ridiculous as you rightly suggest was on a scientific, adult-owned website. It was the one about lactose intolerance. I told my lactose allergic girl-friend about it and she was dismayed that anyone could use a life-threatening condition the way that site did. As she said, children have almost died from it. The site owners weren't  reacting or defending themselves, they were simply peddling propaganda. The dog one was said by a medical degree student as dinner table conversation. I know this because he is my own brother. If scientific minds come out with such blatant and cynical misuse of a child or animal's suffering, how are we to trust what else that mind might say? I have to agree with a posting in another forum about the debate causing upset and add a further thought that many animals have died just because a scientist was curious as to what would happen if, for example, they replaced a dog's blood with salt water and many people are dying of hideous illnesses while scientists spend billions of dollars of research money looking for the proof that lizards started needing a good shave several million years ago. Would you like to be told 'You only have a few weeks to live but at least your sacrifice is helping us find the missing link?'

yes, I agree that fake christians have caused a lot of shameful suffering as well but they are fakes, as I am sure the rogue scientists are. There is nothing in Christ's teachings that say we should kill those who disagree so please don't anyone reading use the Inquisition to make those who try to follow those teachings look bad.
