    Go figure.

    This should make drock and cbirch implode as they try to intelligently divert and pontificate this away, using non-related wiki articles and such....

    "
    Francis Sellers Collins (born April 14, 1950), is an American physician-geneticist, noted for his landmark discoveries of disease genes and his leadership of the Human Genome Project (HGP) and described by the Endocrine Society as "one of the most accomplished scientists of our time".[1][2] He currently serves as Director of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. Collins has written a book about his Christian faith. He founded and was president of the BioLogos Foundation before accepting the nomination to lead the NIH. On October 14, 2009, Pope Benedict XVI appointed Francis Collins to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.[3]
    Dr. Francis Collins is a member of the USA Science & Engineering Festival's Nifty Fifty, a collection of the most influential scientists and engineers in the United States that are dedicated to reinvigorating the interest of young people in science and engineering.[4] "

    Funny how the main players in the Human Genome Project are Christians.

    Isn't that odd? They know more about human genetics than anyone on the planet...and yet they believe God created us.

    CRRAAAAAZZZYYYY!

    The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief is a bestselling book by Francis Collins in which he advocates theistic evolution. Francis Collins is an American physician-geneticist, noted for his landmark discoveries of disease genes, and his leadership of the Human Genome Project (HGP). He currently serves as the Director of the US National Institutes of Health. In the book, Collins describes briefly the process by which he became a Christian.[1][2]
    Collins raises arguments for the idea of God from biology, astrophysics, psychology and other disciplines. He cites many famous thinkers, most prevalently C. S. Lewis, as well as Saint Augustine, Stephen Hawking, Charles Darwin, Theodosius Dobzhansky and others. In 2007 Christianity Today judged it one of the best books of the previous year.[3] "

    Drock and cbirch have never even heard of this guy, yet they present themselves as (big dramatic voice here:) SUPER DUPER SCIENTIFIC SUPERSTARS who are smarter than the average Christian...

    Quick point Allie, not all christians are the crazy evolution deniers that you and YWC are.


    Not all christians think T-Rex's were herbivores, not all christians think lions quietly sat side by side next to antelopes waiting for Noah to sail them around.


    Only crazy fundies think that kind of nonsense is true, most christians are more intelligent.

    I've never denied evolution. I deny that evolution is the way new species are created.

    "MR. COLLINS: I actually do not believe that there are any collisions between what I believe as a Christian, and what I know and have learned about as a scientist. "

    But you do believe T-Rex and everything else were herbivores and that 2 of every animal was on Noah's Ark and it had all the plants and freshwater they needed?

    I don't think he's saying God created us directly. Rather, he's saying that God created the rules of nature and got the ball rolling for evolution with the Big Bang. Perfectly reasonable, if you're an evolutionist and a theist. The proof of God's existence, however, is, as it always is, philosophical not scientific.

    What his particular belief is is irrelevant.

    The point is, retards like cbirch and drock pontificate ad nauseum about "anyone who knows anything about science, genetics, biology, blah blah blah know that the existence of God has been disproven!"

    They're full of shit, which is pretty obvious, but I just wanted to share with them what their betters believe.

    Lol Allie this is why I love ya as a poster.

    I've stated the exact opposite of what you accuse me of saying, and I've stated the exact opposite many times, even on the "Here come the creationist!" thread where we went back and forth over and over.

    I've never once said God has been disproven, I've stated the exact opposite, that no god has ever been disproven.

    Keep up the good work, don't let those competing voices in your head get in the way of reality :clap2:.

    How come whenever I ask Allie for proof of a quote she vanishes and the thread dies off?
