    For those of you who believe in Democracy

    So, you agree that all US sanctions against any other country should be dropped? Free trade with Cuba, Venezuela, Afghanistan and all the other countries that the US is using economic sanctions against? Poland and Hungary's governments broke the agreements they signed when they joined the EU...

    Evolution of the Organelle Assembly Line

    So sorry; you lose. See Godwin's Law.

    Evolution of the Organelle Assembly Line

    It was a book, not a journal article. You will find the peer reviews in the letters other scientists wrote to Newton after the first and second editions were published. Look for an edition of Newton's correspondence.

    Evolution of the Organelle Assembly Line

    Oh dear, you didn't click the link I gave, did you. Newton published his book in 1687. Other scientists read it, and Newton published a corrected edition in 1713 and a further improved version in 1726. The process of peer review wasn't as fast as it is today, nor so formally organised, but it...

    Evolution of the Organelle Assembly Line

    Have you never heard of Newton's Principia?

    Evos pushers. Why didn't you tell us Darwin cursed GOD?

    Thank you for confirming that you have no explanation. Colour me unsurprised.

    Evos pushers. Why didn't you tell us Darwin cursed GOD?

    Why can't you explain, in detail, how the Intelligent Designer constructed assembly lines of organelle. It should be easy peasy...

    How do YECs explain the fossil record?

    So, you do not understand "ad hominem" either. An ad hominem attack is a misdirected criticism: "What you say is wrong because you have a big pimple on your nose." Since you never made any statements that require criticism, then what I said was not an ad hominem attack. You did not make any...

    If it was proven that life begins at fertilization and that the zygote is a person, would you be okay with aborting it?

    The word "life" covers a lot more than just human life. A wombat is alive and is not a human being. An egg cell is alive and is not a human being. A sperm cell is alive and is not a human being. You are narrowing the scope of the OP unnecessarily.

    How do YECs explain the fossil record?

    Repeating your replies again, ferengi-bot. Perhaps your programmers need to add a few new ones to the list you randomly pick from? Or else install a better random number generator so you don't repeat replies so much. I would suggest Fortuna as an upgrade.

    If it was proven that life begins at fertilization and that the zygote is a person, would you be okay with aborting it?

    An egg is a single living cell. Do you disagree? If not, then that is one living cell. A sperm is a single living cell. Do you disagree? If not, then that is a second living cell. The process starts with two different living cells. Two. Two living cells necessarily exist before the process...

    Myself, no. But others have. I do not have that good a microscope.

    How do YECs explain the fossil record?

    Your ignorance of biology is showing, ferengi. If an animal evolves into a different species, then there are at least two animals involved: the initial animal and a second animal of a different species. Ignorance can be cured by learning. "An intelligent mind acquires knowledge, and the ear of...

    If it was proven that life begins at fertilization and that the zygote is a person, would you be okay with aborting it?

    1 living egg cell + 1 living sperm cell -> 1 living zygote cell is not "new" life, if anything it is less life since 2 cells < 1 cell. A zygote is a single cell, not two cells. The process reduces the number of living cells in the world by one. More, a lot more, if you count all the unsuccessful...

    If it was proven that life begins at fertilization and that the zygote is a person, would you be okay with aborting it?

    The first part of your logical AND is false, so the whole thing is false. An unfertilized egg is alive, and so is a sperm cell. That is two independent living cells. After fertilization there is only a single living cell: the zygote. Life does not begin at fertilization, because both the egg and...

    Homelessness crisis in Martha's Vineyard?

    Charlie Crist for one. Would you believe what Fox News says? I think not, you are a victim of fake news there. In the 2018 gubernatorial election DeSantis got 49.6% of the vote compared to 49.2% for Gillum. 49.6% is nowhere near a "great majority", it is not even a majority of any size. You...

    Homelessness crisis in Martha's Vineyard?

    I said US Politicians mostly claim to be Christian. Given that claim, then it is not unreasonable to expect such politicians to follow Jesus' morality. Similarly, I would expect a Jewish politician to follow Jewish morality.

    Homelessness crisis in Martha's Vineyard?

    No it is not. However, the great majority of American politicians do claim to be Christian. I am just applying "by their fruits shall you know them" to Governor DeSantis and Governor Charlie Baker, both Republican. It is easy to see which one more obviously follows Jesus' example.

    Homelessness crisis in Martha's Vineyard?

    Those "rich, white democrat progressive and woke liberals" did just that, helping the refugees from Venezuelan Communism that DeSantis failed to help. It is the job of every Christian; "I was hungry and you fed me..." - Matthew 25:35-40. Joey and the people of Martha's Vineyard are obviously...
