Sorry to break the news, but ignorance is oozing out of all of your posts.

No, you can't. You have clearly demonstrated a complete cluelessness about evolution.

christians do not need predictions, we already know what is going to happen in the future. science has proven over andover that it cannot predict the future (i.e. weather forecasts) and it has a hard time even predicting the past.

I am trying to picture archaeologist hammering away meaninglessly on his keyboard.

Sorry, it doesn't make sense. Either archaeologist is totally, hopelessly insane, or he is predicting that what he types will be transmitted over the internet and appear in a post at evcforum.

I think it's obvious that archaeologist does not have a clue as to what "prediction" means.

However, that does not negate Biblical scripture (which I yet boldly speak for) that sternly warns against offending the "little ones (Matthew 18:6)" by keeping “religion” (Jesus, that is) away from our children in Education or anywhere.

You are reading a lot into that verse, that isn't actually there. Just two verses early, Jesus talks about humility. But here you are making demands, and that does not seem at all humble.

Nobody is preventing parents from introducing their children to religion.

Such is part of Karl Marx’s vision for the coming generation.

Nobody is suggesting that Marx's view of religion be taught in the schools.

That fact that unbiblical practices such as “honor” killings, the "untouchable" status of Hindus, and female circulation are prohibited here in America because of Christian based law makes them even more free here. .

I suggest you do a google search for honor killings in the Bible. You might find that it is not at all unbiblical.

But eye witness accounts are much more powerful are they not?

People may find them more persuasive. However, it is well documented that they are unreliable.

God Himself witnessed His own work of creation.

You at most have hearsay evidence of that.

Aren’t we cautious against the danger doomsday scares that may be used to bring about tyrannical mandates because of the scare?

Those are manufactured scares. Evangelicals manufacture many scares.

What about the past fear of population explosion and the consequent one-child policy that backfired?

The one-child policy was in China. It didn't happen here.

Don't we remember the rainbow as God’s promise to Noah that the world will not be again destroyed by water (Genesis 9:13)?

That has been thoroughly debunked by physics.
