My fault then.
Same here. my dad's turning 91 next week. Makes my blood boil.
Wow...be careful your strawman doesn't get too close to any open flames, John...
What a silly question! Continuing the species is rooted in the instincts of every animal, humans included. Do you think fish are religious?
Uh huh. If you know you can find the designer, then you know there is a designer, even though you have no clue who the designer is. So you do know that it was designed even though you have no idea who designed it.
I'm going to get hate for this - but...
India and China.
I take that back, I see the claim above. Why are you not posting actual links so that we can discern the information source for ourselves?

God said he would establish the nation. They have been under constant attack since 1948 from the oil rich nations and their millions of soldiers. Why can they be overcome?
It doesn't upset me, no. I remain near convinced that there is nothing for anybody after death; certainly I've seen no evidence to suggest otherwise... and I'd accept any evidence of any mind absent a body as contributory evidence...
I think for a lot of women, women deal with this on a 24/7 basis unlike men do. Women are more often judged for their looks and sex appeal. And there are a lot of men out there always on the visual hunt.
