Once Upon A Time....I had collected about fifty Bibles from
hotels I had stayed in over the years. On one camping trip
I grabbed the box of Bibles and burned them in the campfire.
As expected, there were no ghosts/demons/spooks that arose
from the campfire.
...only one problem...you should have saved one for toilet
paper ! ..oh, and the emission of harmful Biblical
particulates into the atmosphere.
.> This won't save your soul from fire, by the way
Souls burn? I'd like to hear about the chemistry behind that.
Jesus said that your body and
soul will be destroyed..in hell.
Read about it
---> Matthew 10:28
But this is what you want.
You are such a silly religious fanatic.
Perhaps, but remember all those 'silly
sci-fi books you read in your lifetime.
The difference being that we knew they
were fiction before we started reading
So you knew before hand that you were
leaving reality, and embarking on a trip
into the realm of fantasy- pure fantasy.
Sci-fi isn't pure fantasy Andrew. People as far back as Jules Verne and
H. G. Wells and many authors since have relied on science fact as a basis
for their novels. Rather than decribing what they wrote as "pure
fantasy" as you insist, a lot of it was what can best be described as
futurism. In some cases, what they imagined, what you decribed as "pure
fantasy" has turned into reality.

This has prepared your mind to accept
the fantasized "goo to you" origins myth
because you were completely incapable
of telling the difference between truth
and fantasy - pure fantasy.
Of course you are referring to evolutionary biology here with your small-
minded "goo to you" quip. Given your demonstrated lack of understanding
of simple biological processes like seed germination I can't even imagine
how you would be able to get your head around something like the TOE.

remain deceived to this very day.
If you want to read a book that is pure fantasy there's one I can
recommend to you. It has talking snakes and donkeys in it and all other
manner of nonsensical stuff as well.

It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to
persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. - Carl Sagan
Why don't you heed his advise?
Heed his advise?
Seriously? I've been heeding Sagan's *advice* for quite a long time now.
It's a quote from Sagan's book "The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a
Candle in the Dark".
You should read it, but I know you won't.
