Please prove to us beyond a reasonable doubt that Heaven and Hell do not exist. Please prove to us beyond a reasonable doubt that God does not exist. You know, or should know, that this is no more possible than your proving beyond a reasonable doubt that Valhalla and Hades do not exist. Hmm, well, ...

On the topic of intelligent design, the theory that the universe is so complex that it must have been created by a higher being, 56 percent favor the teaching of intelligent design or creationism, alongside the theory of evolution in public schools.

Gotcha; I've seen anywhere from a couple hundred thousand to, as above, a couple million.

I guess the point of his question, though, is whether there is any arcaheological evidence for the Exodus and the 40 years.

According to census figures in the book of Numbers, the Israelite population would have been between 2.5 to 3 m...

Thanks for the links; I skimmed them. If your background is in science, I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on KU adding it to the curriculum. I'm just a layman and I would be hard pressed to explain either the ToE or ID. . .my guess is that the majority of people are in the same boat, but it...
