Gentleman get ready , let's get readddyyyyyy to rumbbbbllllleee!!!
Remember people outside of Mark and Gardner, ssshhhhhhh only questions please.
Wow the debate started with a blast coming from truth... hehehe, Mark will surely have his hands full with this... as he tries to mount his refutations... interesting indeed, Mark indirectly ask for a week to give his response
Well - seeing as the entire thing amounts to "science is lying," I am actually considering what a reasonable response is.
I could do it in 5 minutes - as Paraglider says, because there really is nothing to respond to, but I am hoping to respond in such a fashion as we learn something from each other and perhaps get across the fact that evolution is a scientific theory attempting to explain the facts we have observed - rather than a philosophy.
I am not really sure where the bible says that T Rex was actually a 900 year old lizard that mysteriously died out after the flood, and am deciding which parts to respond to without resorting to ridicule.
I realize Gardner took around 3 minutes to formulate his opening statement - and it shows. I also have other things to do.
I'm just eager Mark, as I am keeping my eye on your reply with that of Gardner's... Hmmm it seems to me you are doing your homework, looking for some weaknesses... That remains to be seen though... Goodluck Mark and to Gardner as well... I just broke your silence with this thread hehehe a bit sorry for that though
If you think you're right don’t draw this out ask your questions lets keep this debate going, don't stall. Btw theme is not “science is lying” it's evolutionism is a lie There a BIG difference. Evolutionists presented Ida, Ardi and Lucy etc. as facts and missing links. Scientists were honest and retracted them as just bones and drawings, and not proof of evolution.
Dude - I am not interested in debating your ridiculous garbage here. I will respond in a timely manner on the designated thread. I was responding to another religionist here who was accusing me of stalling. I understand that your statement took a very, very short space of time to build because it is not based on any thing and is 100% without any supporting arguments or facts.
I am attempting to keep it civil rather than just laughing at some of your 100% utterly baseless statements.
On the designated thread.
Here? I will laugh at you - so please do not start arguing with me here.
Grow up mark. I supported my arguments plenty, so you're just angry so you come here like a child having a tantrum. Stop stalling! You say my arguments are baseless prove it and stop this childish banter. You're the one talking about the debate outside the designated thread Why? To put on some nonchalant show? I see through it.
No you came here first with your back-handed attacks and weak attempts to belittle me outside the designated thread. From now on keep the ridicule to yourself save your refutations for the debate okay.
Mark stated: I hereby challenge you to a one on one public debate here on these forums. You must first register a new account with your own name and where you live - then I will happily debate a single point with you....
Gardner Osagie vs Mark Knowles (consultations allowed)Osagie proposes:"Biblical theory better describes how human life came to be as opposed to Evolutionary theory." Knowles is prepared to refute this and...
It seems that Christians cut and paste their arguments on God with Bible scripture much too often when debating their ideology with atheists and other religions. How is this ever effective if entering the debate, the...
