**crazy obssessed with this debate person entering here)
as the other thread got closed - I just wanted to pop in here to clarify with Lily.
(please don't close this threads mods - delete my post if need be though)
I considered sending a PM - but considered that could be taken the wrong way.
1 - 'jess' ..was a typo - I was on my phone and have fat finger syndrome and didn't check auto correct - 'the' was the word that should have been in it's place.
2 - I actually [whether you believe me or not) 'appreciate' your metaphorical take on 'Adam' being 'Man' [plural] once he started cultivating the soil.
Each time I posted - I was trying to make sure I understood you correctly.
You stated you believe evolution happened and genisis was a great attempt to describe this without extra knowledge.
I was not expecting you to support 'my' argument - Iwas asking you to support 'yours.
3- The thread was NOT a bait thread, it was a 'DEBATE' thread (stated in teh OP) it was started out of respect for SAB's thread and this one- so not to take them off track. But yes it was clear the arguments when presented wre to be 'dismantled' ..it's the only way (I think) someone can gain perspective when debating from the other side.
I considered you a 'worthy opponent' in a debate as you seemed to have put a lot of thought into your statement.
4 - It was NOT an attack on your faith, plenty of poeple stated they have faith AND understand evolution.
5 - I did not mock you. I will not admit to mocking you.. it was NOT what I did.
I may have 'hounded' you or repeated my question to you- they same way a child may continually ask their parent...'why...?'
6 - You'll be glad to know I have an incredible busy week - and probably won't be on BH...so therefore wil be 'moving on'.
It's disppointing these debates need to reduced to what they did -- instead of, discussing, even heatedly what each side has to offer and then agreeing to disagree.
7- this post was probably 'not needed' ..but I wanted my right of reply.
