Re: The Foolishness of Many Non-believers

Third, it seems clear to me that you are not really wanting to learn. For you write in one post about not caring about my beliefs which you asked for. If you cared, you'd not so quickly try to knock what you believe to already know. I rarely find what I'd consider well-mannered and intelligent non-...

Re: Self Sacrifice and Altruism in Animals

If you boil this down to its essence it is simply one individual potential giving up one's own life for another individual.

Do you think DNA appear through natural unguided processes?
By unguided, you don't mean natural laws and predictable cause and effect.

I know that I do not know the origin of DNA.
