    LOL! you think THAT'S being worked up?
    I even tried reading it as objectively as I could (without remembering what I was actually thinking) and it doesn't really look like I was worked up.

    Can you say with certainty the two are mutually exclusive?

    one cannot say a computer is random because we don't know what goes on inside it.

    Just FYI, there is. There is a degree of randomness in everything, Mendelian principles, evolution, the works (I realize this could qualify as a nitpick, but that's not the intent...)

    Thank you for bringing up this often ignored point. Some people go "Science science science," some other people go "Jesus Jesus Jesus," when did we eliminate the posability of things not being so cut and dry (gasp! can you imagine?!)

    (Ok, most of this is for joke purposes, I don't need some random person going on to wikipedia and trying to make any statements more valid [it's a joke, you get to bend things], or someone going ape over the computer comment. Man I hate having to do disclaimers.)

    The bottom line is: darwin/evolution is a man-made theory and nothing more. No one will ever be able to explain the way of God's will, for he works in ways we cannot understand.
    James 1:17

    Please explain that to the people who keep telling me how God works.
