{sic} God did not design it that way, He changed it to be that way because eve sinned. it is a good leson for women to learn , that if they sin, they cannot bat their eyes, lower their blouse to show cleavage, hike a skirt and be allowed to skate punishement with God and it makes men feel better for they know that womenwill be punished like they are when they sin. kind of keeps the relationships on an even keel, don't you think?

The idea of the sacred is quite simply one of the most conservative notions in any culture, because it seeks to turn other ideas - uncertainty, progress, change - into crimes.
— Salman Rushdie

This rudderless world is not shaped by vague metaphysical forces. It is not God who kills the children. Not fate that butchers them or destiny that feeds them to the dogs. It’s us. Only us. - the character Rorschach in Watchmen

Re: Please define what you mean by Evolution

You have no idea of how stellar evolution could happen, nor does anyone else.

Are you telling us you can't know, and therefore refuse to learn, or telling us no one can ever know?

Have you thought this through? If no one can ever know anything, how do you know anything at all about yourself?

The problem with knowing everything is learning nothing.

If you don't know what you're doing, find someone who does, and do what they do.

You might believe this crap, but you can never prove it.

Proof is a mathematical and legal concept, not a scientific one.

It takes great faith to believe in evolution.

It takes great hubris to state this or that is forever unknowable. Doesn't that undermine your own belief system?
