I would like to see someone comment on whether or not they believe that humans are still evolving...


Of course we are. The only way to stop evolving is to become extinct.

Phat writes:

Evolution can not be predicted.

Phat writes:

... if in fact there is an endgame to it.


Again, the only "end" is extinction. But even our extinction is not an end to the evolution of our descendents.

Hey, I get it. I even understand why some of you think and believe that there is no "God" and that the very story of Jesus Christ may well have been a myth. You were taught this belief.


Nope. You don't get it at all. I don't "believe that there is no God." I just don't have any belief that there is. As I have told you many times, I have never read a word of atheist writing so I could not have been "taught" to abandon belief in God. Any belief I had died of its own emptiness.

In which case I would argue that you never did.


But you never actually make an argument. It's just wishful thinking on your part. You think if you keep your ryes closed tight enough you'll never have to face what you might see. But it's still out there.

At best, you saw God as a kid sees Santa Claus.


Which is how you see Him - Sky Daddy.

Phat writes:

How many kids do you know that had a personal relationship with Santa Claus?


I don't know any adults who have a personal relationship with God either.
