Exactly.

(no debating Komodo dragons are more evolutionary predispositioned to places like...oh....say the Rinca and Flores islands, although currently now documented as dwindling in population due to modern civilization development).

But still, WOW, look at the size of those creatures!!

All around Ireland there are Castle Keeps that have been written of, there are tales of individuals and quests... Including fire breathing dragons and sea monsters.... So according to you, simple because we can find those castle keeps and the graves of the individuals we just have to agree "There be Dragons There"...
No there are not many castles in ireland

Want to learn about the bible or religion? Visit a church...

Want the education you paid for? Go to your public school...

It's not the state's job to teach you religion and faith.

Fortunately you live in a country where you can choose to do this, or not do this....
It's just that simple.

And there are 450,000 castles in the U.S. Every single one of them with their steeples built on sand.

It helps to be able to discern the possible realities, often scientifically studied, from imaginary, ignorant depictions based on nothing but ones own merely CONdescending, self serving opinion.
(And Greek Mythology has been historically pretty clear in descriptives, that such things in which may have been "believed" upon, were not necessarily tangibly "seen".)
Quite trying to DUHM everything down to mere "black and white" just to try ad insult others intelligence to gratify yourself--because that is NOT reality. Even idiots realize, there's a whole big, spectrum of OTHER colors in between.
Obviously I didn't dumb it down enough in this case... Here I'll try again....

Books says there is a God that has magical abilities, book says a bunch of towns and rulers exist, we find evidence of some of those rulers and towns, you use the notation of finding some of those towns and rulers to bolster a Belief of a God that has magical abilities..... That's Goofy...

The God of the Bible is never referred to as a magician, he is called the creator! Big difference!

To laugh is to risk appearing the fool. To weep is to risk being called sentimental. To reach out to another is to risk involvement. To expose feelings is to risk showing your true self. To place your ideas and your dreams before them is to risk being called naive. To love is to risk not being loved in return. To live is to risk dying. To hope is to risk despair, and to try is to risk failure.

But risks must be taken, because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing. The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing and becomes nothing. He [or she] may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn and feel and change and grow and love and live. Chained by his certitudes, he is a slave, he's forfeited his freedom.

Only the person who risks is truly free."

And yet christians want to overlook the evil of the god in the bible andhave created a "new" god that just loves every one.
If the christian cult believed that the bible was real they would not pick and choose and ignore what their god said

Do you think the many civilizations that have wrotten historically were just "lying.making stuff up" about everything that has ever been written?
Do you think 2000 years from now, what future generations may find in places such as the Library of Congress, will be IGNORANTLY be deemed as lies, fantasies, ignorantly dubbed as nothing but fallacies of past civilizations?
Because when you post such nonsense, that is how you sound.
The Neolithic age in China can be traced back to between 12,000 and 10,000 BC.[6]

Early evidence for proto-Chinese millet agriculture is radiocarbon-dated to about 7000 BC.[7] Farming gave rise to the Jiahu culture (7000 to 5800 BC). At Damaidi in Ningxia, 3,172 cliff carvings dating to 60005000 BC have been discovered, "featuring 8,453 individual characters such as the sun, moon, stars, gods and scenes of hunting or grazing." These pictographs are reputed to be similar to the earliest characters confirmed to be written Chinese.[8][9] Excavation of a Peiligang culture site in Xinzheng county, Henan, found a community that flourished in 5,5004,900 BC, with evidence of agriculture, constructed buildings, pottery, and burial of the dead.[10] With agriculture came increased population, the ability to store and redistribute crops, and the potential to support specialist craftsmen and administrators.[11] In late Neolithic times, the Yellow River valley began to establish itself as a center of Yangshao culture (5000 BC to 3000 BC), and the first villages were founded; the most archaeologically significant of these was found at Banpo, Xi'an.[12] Later, Yangshao culture was superseded by the Longshan culture, which was also centered on the Yellow River from about 3000 BC to 2000 BC.

The early history of China is obscured by the lack of written documents from this period, coupled with the existence of later accounts that attempted to describe events that had occurred several centuries previously. In a sense, the problem stems from centuries of introspection on the part of the Chinese people, which has blurred the distinction between fact and fiction in regards to this early history.

Sounds like your theory that god created the earth 5000 years ago is proven wrong

What is "goofy" (actually it's beyond goofy, I would call it ignorant) is trying to dump ones own possible opinion into anyone else lap and even MORE ignorant, try to "labelduhmlabel" it as "theirs" (versus ones own opinion.)

My opinion of such "books", would be that they may (or may not, according to the credibility of the text)) attest to the beliefs and other aspects of civilizations before our time.

Is that too difficult to comprehend?

Why are you dumping YOUR own opinion of what YOU perhaps think about others opinions, into MY lap, as if you have any idea of what I think about the Earths creation?
Because obviously you don't...or maybe you do(?)--in that I sometimes ascertain to a DUHM as ROCKs theory, as far human behavior on this earth sometimes.

Cave paintings date back quite far (as has been previously posted a few times already as well) in many other cultures too.

YOUR point being?

That such artifacts, represent cultural aspects of numerous cultures and peoples, through out the span of civilization's history as we know it?

That would be a logical thought, if so.

You stated it better than I would have. My point being that writings and other objects of civilization date back tens of thousands of years, yet do not make their gods any more real than the jewish god

Not to mention Gobekli Tepe that has been dated by several methods to around 16,000 years ago but I think will be closer to 20,000 years ago when the actual megaliths were cut and set....
