...it cannot be that fables made Academia studies, be the only source as thus accepted, of good morale and ethics...! BUT THIS 2,000 YEARS OLD ANCIENT RELIGION, HAS BEEN this...!
CHRISTIANS ARE NICE PEOPLE generally speaking, and I prefer my children to be amongst them...!
BUT IN PURE LOGIC, we are distinguishing from "reality" and better logic from ancient fables, regardless of their "ignorant" good use...!
...but they are blocking the progress of HUMANITY as is also the absurd "irrational" Academia Darwinian Evolution...! FOLKS WE DID NOT COME FROM THE APES...! WE COME FROM AN OVARIAN EGG AND A TESTICLE'S SPERM...! You make for me a human artifitial testicle and all chemicals, blood vessels, hormones, etc...., and then come to me and tell me you made "half" of human life in a LABORATORY...!
THEY CAN ALL BE, BUT WHERE DOES THAT LEAVE Pure Logic and my Books, when they openly oppose me...???
CHRISTIANS WERE OPPOSED BY CATHOLICS AND EVEN UNTO DEATH IN THE INQUISITION...! BUT TODAY THEY BOTH ARE AND HAVE NOT STOPPED FROM EXISTING...!
SO I WILL CLAIM MY PRESENCE and Recognition IN THIS WORLD...!!!
