 Because I was 11 years old and had no clue of what life was all about and the preacher would always talk about hell and torture, what was I supposed to do? I was scared. No 11 year old should ever be forced to make those kinds of decisions when they are still at such an impressionable state, yet so many family's do that to there kids. As a result they grow up never having questioned anything because they were brainwashed into this religious belief, then they do the same thing to there kids and on and on. Like mindless robots.

Man i like science also. I have studied it. But science is just a study and has been proven false over and over. For instance you believe the Earth is millions of years old. The only way to derive that opinion is carbon dating which in itself is basically just one big hypothesis. You can 10 different "scientist" and run the same sample 10 times and get 10 different answers. So therefore Carbon dating contradicts itself in every way. And just another proven scientific FACT... If and organism contains Carbon 14 it begins to loose 1 carbon atom every 6000 years. So if some of this would and rocks and fossils they are finding are millions of years old how are they carbon dating them. If science which you believe in is correct whithin 100,000 years all carbon atoms should be gone from any once living organism making the pressumed assumptions of carbon dating erroneous. But that is left out in most science reports i suppose.

But i guess that is how science works... If it doesnt fit what i belive in i guess we will just toss this info out. LOL. Believe in science if you want but by believing in science you are no different than me beleiving in the bible. All science is is Human Opinion. You havae never yourself studied and proven that the Earth is millions of years old so by believing that you are believing in what man has wrote and basically hear say. How many times have you stidied evolution and proven it fact or studied the idea of the solar systems moving apart due to the big bang theory? You have probably just read it in books and believed in it correct? And who wrote those books? MAN. Therefore how can you bash on religion and believing in the Bible when you yourself only believe what scientist have spoon fed you. You contradict yourself man.

Ok listen im gettin tired of arguing with you, you keep coming back at me with things that make no sense. Carbon dating has a range of up to 50,000 years. Carbon dating is only one of the many radiometric methods used. There are other methods such as uranium and rubidium which measure in the millions and billions of years. There are of course limitations and variables when using these methods but scientists understand and include these in their calculations. A fossil may be 1.56 million years old or 1.38 million years old but on that large of a scale a 100 thousand years is not very important. Science continually refines and redefines itself to help us better understand the world we live in. Science is not made of opinions it is created through careful analysis and questioning of the way things around us work. Religion is just a statement that you either believe or you do not. If your gonna keep arguing with me its just gonna be a huge waste of time for me and you. Its clear your arguments hold no water with me and you have no desire to accept the facts.

Ryan how do you know the info you just gave me? You read it in a book. That is no different than me reading my Bible and believing what i read. Science has not been redefined it has been proven false and therefore to cove there tracks they say well we have this new "refined method." How often are science books reprinted and changed? Im just stating my arguement. As far as the uranium and rubidium testing they are controversial to say the least and in another 10 years they will probably be proven inaccurate and a better more "redefined" way will be invented again... LOL. This has happened time and again. Im not saying your beliefs are wrong. If thats what you want to pursue that is fine. Just as you have whole heartedly bought into science i have whole heartedly bought into Jesus. I know you say this is facebook and you have a right to post whatever and that is true enough but what about the right to pursue happyness? Doesnt everyone have that 2? If pursuing science makes you happy i am happy for you, but if tina or whoever else wants to pursue Jesus is it to hard for you to let that go and let them be happy. You say you just want to spread the truth, but if you see an ugly baby do you point that out to the mother? Im just saying.

So does science. Im not missing your point im just showing you that you have on blinders. If science isnt moving the goal post and changing its story every day then why do they have to reprint science text books ATLEAST every 2 years if not sooner? Im not saying science is a sham... Im just saying that it is a huge sales pitch and you have bought in. Granted some things can be proven but how do you logically expect that we can totally completely without a doubt verify something is 4.5 billion years old when we have no way of testing the equipment because we arent sure of date of what we are testing. To calibrate any machine you have to have a control that you know the absolutes about... How do you know that uranium and rubidium testing are correct if you yourself cannot prove to me that what you are testing is how old you say it is? Just like you say my arguement hold no water yours hold none to me because you are speaking wholely on beliefs as well being as these methods of testing are not accepted throughout science.

Science and Religion are so very different. Science does not require nearly as much faith as religion. Sure, there is always a point at which you cannot know for 100% certain what the truth is, but Science takes us alot further towards that point. Religion tells you God created the world and that is it. Science tells us our best estimation of how the world was created and uses what we know and understand about how things work to prove those claims. When new evidence arises we must modify those claims. Science textbooks are updated as new evidence and information arises. The Bible has remained the same since it was written, that alone should raise questions of its validity. I don't know what your job is but surely you wouldn't follow manuals and directions on it from hundreds of years ago. I cant continue to argue with you all day long, if you can not understand I guess you never will. Have a great day.

ryan, i think i have told u before cause we seem to have these talks often, but.. I have lived my life without the lord, i lived my life for me, i got drunk, i got high. It was all for me! I didnt gain nething from that lifestyle but a lesson and alot of bad memories. I have lived with an addict that would steal from his child to go buy a crumb, i sat back and watched his life spiral out of control. One day he woke up, he was clean for two yrs, in that two yrs he pursued Jesus with a passion! He read his bible everynight, he went to church. Then one day he just stopped he put God on the back burner, and started living his life for himself again, he is now locked up for many yrs. Of course he has found Jesus again and i pray for him everyday, that he never loses sight of the only one that turns us from our wicked ways. I praise him everyday that he changed my life. I just saw my two daughters baptized i have a joy in my hrt that is undiscrible. Jesus says ANYONE can come to the father.

Giving Credit to the wrong person

This time I was trying to be nice and point out that her son, after doing good in school, should be praised for the hard work instead of giving all the thanks to the make believe guy in the sky. Well that didnt go to well, I really pissed a few people off and they were even acting like I was attacking the child.

I can remember throughout school starting every morning with a prayer and... "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States Of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all !!!" We no longer do that for... fear... of Offending someone !!! Let's see how many Americans will re-post this & NOT CARE if it offends anyone

 I DO NOT want to offend, BUT I do stand for what I believe in. Everyone has their opinion and I have mine, being from America, I can voice mine freely thanks to all the past present and future soldiers.

Nobody seems to have a problem with a prayer being said before football games, so why not a school day? I am proud of my God, my country, and the people who serve daily so that I can have a choice. I certainly don't care who I offend by utilizing this right!

 I pray for those who don't believe in prayer OR God, because they have NO hope. They will just live and die...and spend eternity separated from God!

Having kids has nothing to do with it lol are you kidding me!!!!!!!!!! Religion is horrible and false and it is the dumbing down of out people! I would want my kids to be smart and be respected instead of being made fun of for being ignorant and believing in some magic fairy tale story! Sorry Whitney but just because you read something doesn't make it true, sorry bout your luck

 Everyone has a right to the way they feel and how they live their lives. I don't believe anyone should push their views on other people. Ryan, you are a good friend and I respect your views but please keep the negative and trash talking to yourself. I have known for a very long time that you don't believe in the same God I do. I will not judge you for that so please show everyone here that same RESPECT.

There you go again acting like what you believe is actually true lol Its not, just because mommy and daddy taught you it was true doesn't mean its true, go follow up on some science subjects and get back to me. Religion hope and faith and science is based on facts, I think ill go with the facts, plus I have common sense that tells me how crazy religion is.

 Ryan DARDEN! If you are as smart as you are claiming, you will know that there are many different views in the science community. FACT!! SCIENCE is about theories. Some proven some STILL NOT! AS a self proclaimed smart person, why dont you take a big box of legos and put them in a big paper bag, shake them up and scream bang. I promise that when you pour those legos out of that bag they will not make ANYTHING, much less the world. Remember that. THEORIES!! Not all of them are fact.

Human evolution, or anthropogeny,[1] is the origin and evolution of Homo sapiens as a distinct species from other hominids, great apes and placental mammals. The study of human evolution uses many scientific disciplines, including physical anthropology, primatology, archaeology, linguistics and genetics.[2]

umm ok Christy lets see, theories are based on other facts so that argument holds no ground at all. Evolution has been proved to be fact by the way. I dont think im some super smart person I just know what I believe is true, you dont have to be super smart to believe what I do, all its take is some common sense. My reason for my hatred of religion is because of so many reasons!
