    I was there, in a way. I was also in a supernova billions and billions of years ago.

    were you there when matthew 5:22 was written? it is not necessary to act like a third grader and call names in order to make a point, and it is not following Christ. make your points in a respectful, dignified manner, and people can evaluate your reasoning. call names and you will be discounted as an immature child.

      Indeed. Although we can perhaps forgive a child in school for still being immature, those adults like Ken Ham who encourage children to behave in this reprehensible way are the ones that really deserve criticism.
