WOW, Purple Girl:
Your knowledge of the Bible is interesting. Did you get your facts from a Bible collage, or at the local street corner?
  The old Testament is like a History book before the birth Christ, Its about The beginning of time up to the middle when Christ died on the cross for our sins.
It’s easy to mock the things that you can’t understand. Geologist have found many thing about the Bible that are true. Places, and people that were talked about, were dug up in Egypt and other places. I understand the confusion creation versus the big bang theory. At the very least, the Bible has said the same thing for about a
100 years.
Scientist are trying to prove we came from a speck of dust and water.
I’ll take my God. I’m not a Bible thumper, and I don’t place my self above anyone. I am the same as you, a human with a difference kind story about life and death. Mine has a nicer ending. That has me going to a place witch is better then this one. 
Please understand that all Christian aren’t mouthy.
  We are, to be kind, truthful,and not haters of people. In fact, I believe most people agree with the wording of the Ten Commandments. they are moral and public laws of today.
I hope I shared something that nice, and not hateful.

The Religious ignorants are not going to be suddenly enlightened merely because animals have been proven to have homosexual tendencies- They don’t even accept concrete proof of evolution!
Funniest thing is that they malign Eve for having eaten the apple from the tree of knowledge even when failure to have taken that ‘risk’ would have relegated humanity to being nothing more than a hairless ape.The only reason these holey rollers can claim Humanity is Gods Divine creation is because we have the capacity for knowledge…Because Eve ate the apple to begin with- so shouldn’t they be worshipping her for her sacrific and granting us our unique right for salvation, too? Ah yet another Pothole in the religious doctrines ‘logic’.Either-God created us to be just another ignorant,carnal beast: Eve accepted Gods proposition to be the only species with Intellect and skills to be the managing stewards of Eden;or, neither is true and only through evolution we developed our unique abilities and intellegence. Prop 1 is true- then its a free for all,because God had no greater aspiration for us than he did any other animal. Prop 2 is true, then Eve should be revered, as the savior of humanity from it’s most base and ignorant inclinations- making Us Gods most beloved species since we are the only ones capable of worshipping and serving Him. Prop 3 is true then we are a uniquely evolved animal which uses our intellect, insight and foresight to guide and utilize our more basic instincts.We are the ‘Fittest’ animal becasue of our capabilities and our adaptability.
