    I'm intrigued Tracy, does this "flying spaghetti monster" have a gluten free sect? If so, how do I convert? I ate some pasta last Saturday night, does this count?

    You know how it always seems that god wants/loves/hates the same things his followers do? I think that applies in this case.

    Well, Aaron...may I call you Aaron?...eating pasta is a very fine first step on the road towards accepting the Flying Spaghetti Monster into your life, for only then can he act as your light and savior. The more pasta you eat, the more he will love you; this is undisputed. Yes, there are those among us who are gluten-free. The mercy and wisdom of our Lord and Savior has shone through with gluten-free pasta, that even those poor individuals plagued by the diseases of Coeliacs and Inflammatory Bowel, given to them by false prophets in an attempt to lure them away from the light, can enjoy pasta for all eternity.

    So God writes science on our hearts? Where exactly on this muscle tissue is science written?

    Peter :)

    Try again.

    Romans 12:1a I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice,

    This presenting of one's body in the name of Truth for a living sacrifice if beed be is what Rev Martin luther King did, for instance.

    Yeah, it makes sense today, that we must stand up for Truth, if we want things in our life and the life of future generations to go right.

    Salvation...?

    The Promised Land to whom? You? If all you have to do is say it's the promised land, I'm afraid you've been watching too many religious films.

    We already tried that. They called it the Dark Ages.

    Salvation from a hell that christianity invented? That's like a snake oil salesman selling a cure for a disease he just made up on the spot.

    Actually in a way we are a part of the promise. As far as the New Jerusalem is concerned.

    If there are paradoxes, they shouldn't get a free pass.

    So how do you resolve these paradoxes? How can something have contradictory properties and still be possible? Is this 'Trinity' concept defined within the bible?

    Because they were written by different people, with different agendas?

    Right, according to the Bible, which can't be confirmed.

    Yes, that is something that can not be confirmed. Science is a lot better at confirming what takes place in the past, compared to what is going to take place in the future. For example a lot of the cities we read about in the Bible we are able to confirm because the ruins are still there today.

    Can you list them, please?

    All five hundred or so Lake Victoria cichlids evolved after humans. So did quite a long list of other new species whose formation humans observed first-hand. And so on, yadda yadda yadda.

    As to dominance, humans are only "dominant" if you're already predisposed to think that. We don't have the largest biomass, nor the largest number of individuals, nor probably the greatest ecological impact on the rest of life. We are the last surviving species of a previously more diverse lineage.

    We're a darn effective invasive species, I'll give you that...

    I wonder if you can find any Bible verses in the human proteome ^_^

    Or scientific laws.

    Hmm, EEQUALSMCSQUARED isn't quite a valid amino acid sequence...

    EEQVALSMCSQVARED is, but I couldn't find it in the Genbank collection of human proteins :(

    Anyone got any more science that could be written in a protein?

    Are you saying that humans are completely incapable of writing fiction that contains real places?
