Yet you continue to read them. Those facepalms: do they hurt? You can get counseling for that. Of course, psychology is an inexact science. You understand 'inexact', right?

Deus ex machine . . . a cheesy plot device, but hoary with age, it's sanctified by millennia of tradition.

I DO want to hear from people who don't "believe" in it, though. I want to know what your reasoning is. The evidence pretty much speaks for itself, so why do you deny it?

@secondusername,
I think biological evolution was clearly implied here (and I appear to have been correct since so many took it as such).

Just a heads up here, lett. Most of the kind folks here eschew the Bible. The desire for license seems strong here.

Amen . . . that BS about license assumes that the bible makes people act properly and that lack of it makes people act badly. That's stinkier BS than we usually encounter.

@Setanta,
If, indeed, the bible could guarantee 'proper' behavior. The nations of christendom would long ago have brought about world peace. Even ' believers' desire license.

More to it, of course.
