    I'd be interested in what you actually believe.

    The genetic code is as a computer code that can be modified and then propagated with the change. And multiple requirements can input the 'request' for change as applicable..

    What would be a good working title for it? Would you really respond, or would I be wasting my time?
    I'm not trying to be rude, but as mentioned, I don't really know what you believe.

    Let's try this again. You said you needed specifics to answer I gave them to you. Instead of answer you ask a question.
    If you don't want to answer then just don't or say you can't.

    Why does the ice in the glaciers not show a world wide flood 3500-4000 yrs ago?
    Why do the pyramids in egypt and south america no show water damage or get crushed under the weight of the water on top on them?

    It that too many questions for you to handle?

    You'd be wasting your time.

    So why not atleast give a foundation on your beliefs? I've been extremely transparent about mine to the point of ridicule.

    I'm not committed to 3500 yrs or so on the flood. I'm not committed to a time frame at all.

    Here's a link for the pyramids in egypt and the floods.

    How is it relevant to the civility of atheists or theists?
    This is about killing the messenger to avoid the message.
    I have stated my agnosticism to the extent that I contend we can't know the truth about God and that the bible is not a reliable source to define God. Beyond that, my beliefs are simply that; what I believe. Who cares about that?

    If we didn't care, we wouldn't ask. Its just ironic that you come on here to "discuss" others beliefs while keeping your beliefs from being criticized, the way you do others. And then when confronted you get hostile to the point that you wouldn't have a conversation about it. I mean, you don't see the hypocrisy in that?

    Where is the hostility? I simply don't see the relevance.
    I respond to people that want to make ridiculous absolute statements about their beliefs, trying to sell them as truth using dubious supporting evidence.
    I make no such absolute edicts, and don't intend to.
    They're silly.

    So you basically believe that God is unknowable, right?

    I've discussed my beliefs as much as I care to. They are a derail to this thread. You can PM me if you like, and if I have nothing else to do I'll discuss it.
    And your question is obtuse.
