    No, but I do think the ones who display it are.

    What does "Godless" mean? Someone who uses logic and reasoning in understanding the workings of the universe? Why can't the belief in a Judeo-Christian God be synthesized with the most obvious of scientific principles like the impossibility of the transgression of the laws of nature?

    Not saying it can't...You should do yourself a favor, and read the entire thread before coming in and being less than informed on what poster you are addressing...

    Denying overwhelming scientific evidence is pretty arrogant in my book.

    I wouldn't close the thread ONLY because evolution denial is one of the funniest things to read on the forum.

    I believe the verse speaks of God giving man "free will", not giving man 'equal distribution of assets'....

    I was not necessarily addressing you in particular. My comment stands to all those who promote faith over science.

    I asked you to define Godless. You still haven't.

    Who's denying it? I don't disagree that evolution exists, I am only asking questions that try to get to the start....ie; evolved from what? how? when? why?.... But I guess when liberal/progressives are questioned in these ways the only defense to what they can't answer is to label those asking, and calling them stupid, or making crap up about their position that doesn't exist....Way to go Jet, you display this clearly here....

    Let the parsing begin.

    Godless is a self defining term....I am not sure what you need explanation on....As for your "...not necessarily addressing you in particular." You quoted me, you were speaking to me. If you want to address the general group then don't quote a specific poster, unless you make it clear that you are not directing your claims at someone in particular...

    As I said you were addressing me by direct quote...Saying now that you weren't is excuse me for saying less than honest.
