Their are a lot of assumptions in the theory of evolution that I do not hold. Further, naturalistic evolution is not anwering the questions that I am asking.
Ahem...this isn't my quote.
That comment was a bit tongue-in-cheek--a witty retort to those who say that religions should focus more on teaching morals and less on telling people where they go when they die.
I'm afraid I didn't catch your reference. A little to subtle for me, or for a forum with no indication that you weren't serious. In this case the difference is pretty huge. After reading it again, it sounded pretty sincere to me. Are you sure this was intended as tongue in cheek?
And you didn't answer my question. What questions are you asking that science isn't answering? That's a rather important point.

Didn't we already talk about ridicule?
And didn't I say there was limit? Six day creation is a delusional myth. This isn't a real personal insult, just reality. And this isn't making any claim about the existence of god either, just the six day myth. If I claimed that Piltown man was a real missing link, I expect I'd get the same treatment. 2+2 does not = 5.
