    You're starting to ramble on because you do not reply to my truthful statements backed up by my links. It goes to show that your statements are based on assertions and do not present a coherent argument. Is this typical of atheists? No, I've heard atheists with better arguments, but they end up being wrong. Still, they presented an actual argument.

    First, we know that socialism (politics and ideology) is based on secular humanism. Secular humanism is based on Marxist humanism and Karl Marx. Is it any wonder that this is the basis of your rants against Christianity? At least, the atheists I know admit this is their foundation. If you haven't realized this already, then this is the path you are heading down.

    As for the Christians doing violence and killing because God told them to, it is the story of the Canaanites which has been explained several times already. God had good reason for destroying his enemies that stood in the way and would kill the Israelites.

    Why did God command the extermination / genocide of the Canaanites, women and children included?

    As for the gay priests, you're referring to Catholics and Pope Francis has to deal with it. The church should be sued by its victims in my opinion.

    There is no reason for the god of the world to smite Catholics. Many Christians think the Catholics may be fall under Satan when the time comes. It is a form of Christianity under human influence instead of following the Bible. Satan doesn't just influence non-believers. He influences believers, too. The theistic evolutionists.

    And from all your nonsense, you conclude God doesn't exist. It's just the rantings of someone who's gone looney tunes.

    It's not made up at all. It was written down many centuries ago by people from different walks of life. It's part history, part science (even though it's not a science book) and for our lives in the future. If one studies it, then there is no other conclusion that they can come to. As I stated, I compared evolution from evolution.berkeley.edu and what the Bible says and the Bible is correct. Prior to that, I believed in evolution. However, around 2011 I had serious doubts about evolution based on its own merits.

    Darwin was wrong and much of evolution has not panned out. I started seriously questioning it in 2011 when there wasn't an explanation of how multicell creatures come into existence. How did sexual reproduction evolve? Where is the mountain of evidence of transitional fossils? What are scientific breakthroughs based on evolution? Why is evolution considered science when it's more forensics and forensics without adequate evidence could be wrong (and it usually is)? Living creatures and their births look like there is intelligence behind their designs just like DNA. Evos cannot explain nor have arguments to disprove, but try to pass off their dogma instead. Why is evolution dogma taught as science? It's more philosophy and religion. Creation should be taught as science since it provides the origins to biology, zoology, geology and paleontolgy which is filled with erroneous ideas taught from evolution.

    You keep believing we came from a monkey or a common ancestor, but there is no evidence of this monkey or common ancestor. They should be in abundance. When asked why there aren't any today, we get the same fossil evidence circular reasoning mumbo jumbo. How does knowing you came from an ape help at all then? What other science has it led to? What good does knowing that your DNA is similar to a monkey's DNA done? What good is knowing birds came from dinosaurs? It's just used to promote evolution, as circular reasoning is ought to do.

    So, clearly I wasn't brainwashed into anything. My faith in Jesus is my faith. It has led to my discovering creation science and discovering it better explains our reality and origins and our future than the myths of evolution. All your mountain of evidence, theories and "facts" has led to a lot of nothing which beliefs in myths are ought to do. While belief in creation science and the Bible has led to all kinds of breakthroughs such as mathematics, magnetic field strength, continental drift and plate tectonics, radioactive decay and helium in rocks, cold material near the earth's core and much more. I don't have to list all the scientists who believed in creation and their accomplishments as it will fill multiple pages here.

    I must say that Sean Connery was my favorite James Bond. He certainly knew when and how to wear a suit --- and he wasn't a pretty boy either.

    You are back to your tired, old tropes thinking that creation scientists were brainwashed into this. Nothing of the kind. In fact, creationists created science to pay homage to God. It's the other way around, so you are wrong once again.

    However, I did find the following to add to the discussion. It lists the ways an ape-human or common ancestor could be demonstrated in science.

    1. Combine ape fossil bones with human fossil bones and declare the two to be one individual—a real “apeman.”
    2. Emphasize certain humanlike qualities of fossilized ape bones, and with imagination upgrade apes to be more humanlike.
    3. Emphasize certain apelike qualities of fossilized human bones, and with imagination downgrade humans to be more apelike.

    The problem for evolutionists is NONE of the above occurred naturally. Two out of three are imaginary. The first one was deliberate fraud or based on fallacies of insufficient evidence. They were all reconstructed by the evolutionists trying to show common ancestry.

    That was a long infomercial for the irrelevant Christian creation ministries.

    And yes, the geocentric model is true, at least for the Flat Earth loons.

    I'm sorry for whatever happened to you in 2011.

    If it makes you feel good to follow these beliefs, then go for it!

    Do not hurt, do not kill, do not do anything wrong based on those beliefs. Do not think you are superior because of those beliefs. Do not use your beliefs to hurt or hinder others.

    And then I'm totally cool with it!

    Clearly, the more logical/rational answer as to where we came from is:
    A vast, invisible fairy or similar thing, reached down into some mud, molded the clump of mud to look human, sprinkled its fairy-dust on it so that it would become human, then once it had its human, it ripped out a rib from the human (rather than simply mold some more mud) and made an opposite sex human.
    Clearly, far more rational than the evolutionary process.
