    Sounds a little schizophrenic or perhaps grandiose.

    "anytime someone uses science in an effort to prove an incorporeal spirit creature, i.e., higher power, exists, did exist or took or takes action in the physical, material universe, you can be 100% certain that person doesn't know what any of those things means and lacks critical thinking skills".

    Again kid, the first life form on Mars will be the most intelligent creature in the known universe. Which will be a human, made in the image of God to continue colonization....................

    Viv's Law in action. Also, it's really sad that you feel the need to attempt to demean people by calling them kid. That's a common sign of feelings of inadequacy.

    No just assholes who pray for all of the Worlds people to die. You have a problem with that kid?

    JW's pray for these people to die..... https://www.google.com/search?q=mother+with+child&newwindow=1&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj2qPPk7rrOAhXlDMAKHVmyAcQQ_AUICCgB&biw=1280&bih=649

    Anybody else want to share this huge bag of caramel popcorn with me?

    Viv, I love shrubbery! I just bought a mini orange tree. You should get one for your yard, too.

    Crabby, calm down dude! It's Friday and the weekend is upon us!

  • Crabby

    Oh wow. That's like, every bald, short, stubby fingered man ever in those feelings of inadequacy. It's a nuclear furnace of inadequacy.

    Oh, you also failed to show how anything you said was scientific. Remember, if it is, then it's falsifiable, so please show us that. You know, as soon as you're able, Shorty.

    Got that kid?

    Oh. You have been VERY clear, Tiny, shaking your tiny fist of rage as you gaze up at me, the glare of your scalp almost blinding me.

    Oh, and don't forget the falsifiability.

    Where's that falsifiability, Stubbs? I mean, you do know what that is, right, Tiny?

  • Crabby

    I know that JW's do not study any sort of science, thus they have no rights to comment on such topics. Thus the JW World View is one of purposeful ignorance, but since ignorance is bliss you are quite happy.

    life has the characteristics of a created / creative process, very low entropy or high organisation. so did the very early, newly created, beginning universe, to have that order spontaneously emerge from random chaos (is there any other?) takes a long time. so--organic life here is only ~4 billion years old--so?--
