"The 'sins' and 'wickedness'…" ????"

If you can't see the wickedness of man you don't have a clue about the world you live in.

sad to see such an ignorant person

Oh I can see it.
It comes from some old books. But 'sin' are a religious term only.

And 'wickedness', who says that ?
Other than the 15th century minds that is.

pelycosaurs really its a type of dinosaur that lived 350 to 250 million ya whats about ? it had no mammal characteristics of any mammal or any fossil show it eather The pelycosaurs (from Greek πέλυξ – pelyx "axe" or perhaps "bowl"/"pelvis" and σαῦρος sauros "lizard") were primitive Late Paleozoic synapsid amniotes. Some species were quite large and could grow up to 3 meters or more, although most species were much smaller. you want to no more hit me up

Since pelycosaurs had synapsid skulls, they weren't dinosaurs, which were all diapsids. And there were no dinosaurs before the Triassic, 250 million years ago.

omar Ahmed October 5, 2011 - 1:32 AM

so there is no telling if this animal was nocturnal or not but you can date it give or take a 1,000,000 yrs. and say for sure it was the common ancestor of all mammals? But somehow it's wrong to believe in GOD?

TheOtiswood April 10, 2012 - 6:29 AM

If it was meant how uneducated I am about terminology relating to evolution, you made a good observation. but if it was meant I am uneducated in science you would be unbelievably wrong. (I was educated in many of the same ciriculums(sp.) as most students in America. and then some. good religion got the world from ancient times to now. bad religion got s from ancient times till now.if you want let's see how well pure science fixes world hate, famine and YES disease (charity , love donates tocure

TheOtiswood April 10, 2012 - 7:01 AM

how can I not agree with most of what you said "religion" and "in the name of GOD" has caused more death and pain on this earth than possibly half the disease (a guess). BUT individuals that (truly) try to follow in Christ's footsteps are not doing these things.and you know many of the scientist doing research and practicing medicine are people of faith. so to generalize from any perspective dosn't really work. if it is wrong for religion to propigate hate then it must be wrong to hate ya know?

TheOtiswood April 12, 2012 - 12:56 AM

two of my lifelong friends are people with no religious belief. they are two of the best people I know. You are right with what you have said.What I believe is, it is up to the Lord to judge people not other people. If the religions followed just that the world would be a better place.

elgatochurro May 25, 2013 - 5:34 AM

actually no, creation and evolution contradict one another. not only that but evolution is proven with each fossil finding while creation isn't

Zygon June 12, 2013 - 6:34 PM

this video makes me feel pathetic

Gogogomez51 February 20, 2014 - 10:17 AM

Evolution is a fact not a theory we have evidence to support it you creationist need to wake up from your little land of fantasy and quit being so ignorant and narrow minded in your beliefs.

Update:it was later found out to not be a true mammal but a non-mammalian mammaliaformes
