The Cambrian explosion was really the Cambrian extinction. The results if Noah's flood.
To make a fossil you must bury the dead fast else it just rots away.
There are jelly fish fossils from this Cambrian extinction. A pretty major event would be needed to make fossil all over the world of the same time period. We call it Noah's flood.

Where are all the people fossils from then...genius? Or even animals we recognize as living 6000 ya, epic fail and making your self look pretty shabby in the brains department.

Are you talking about the Babylonian Adam and Eve, which predate the Hebrew Genesis story by several centuries?

Give us some honest to goodness original thoughts of Oscar.

They don't have to be totally coherent.

Um, I'm not actually Oscar Wilde. That's just an avatar.

But as for my own original thoughts, here is one: I really like Sea Veggies seaweed snacks.

How was that?

Atheism requires no faith at all but i wish i had Jean-Paul sartre's attitude to religion, a man so thoroughly atheist he deemed the whole subject beneath his intelligence to consider. Simply religion is divisive and restricts us as a species, simple as that.
BOOK OFFER - There's a book causing a buzz in the UK called '2082: The Chronicles Of Hope'. It's featured in the USA today on Amazon Kindle Daily Deal for one day at $0.99. I'm not anything to do with the book but believe it could have such a positive influence if the word is spread, as it features an atheist revolutionary, humanitarian working-class genius politician very much in the George Carlin mould. He's got an integrity and strong desire to build a better world, rather than merely a capitalist puppet for the corporations who really run things. I highly recommend
George Carlin was a genius? Wow, he must have been great at keeping a secret.

You cannot truthfully deny that multitudes of curious occurrences are readily observable in the Bible.

To a Xtian believer, these strange events are nothing more than the mysterious ways of God.

To a freethinker, the alleged phenomena are an indicative subset of the widespread superstitious beliefs held by our ancestors.

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of ridiculous statements made by the authors of the Bible.

Whether you enjoy reading about plumb lines or talking donkeys, the Xtian religion carries more than its fair share of absurdities.

In fact, some of the biblical reports are illogical enough to disqualify explanations through supernatural means.
I didn't leave anything out. I was correcting the age of the flood.
I did that. Nothing left out.

Do you believe every fossil has been found?

Do you believe everything that lived turns into a fossil?

Fact is most people would be hanging on to trees and other floating item until they died they would have then bloated and floated and would then have been eaten. They would not have been buried alive in mud slides in the numbers like that of sea creatures.

That's still millions of years before humans existed, still making your myth a failure. Of course ignoring the fact that you twisted the facts to support your ignorant assertion here. Not to mention, there were no rabbits, birds, or mammals.

The term "Nibiru" comes from the Sumerian cuneiform stone tablets and writings that are 6,000 years old. The term Nibiru means "Planet of the crossing". The Sumerian culture is the first recorded civilization on earth, then called Sumerian, today's Iraq. It has been known throughout ensuing time periods as Sumer, Mesopotamia, and Babylon, all the same location for where earth's first culture shows up on earth. The Sumerian Culture is the oldest known civilization we know of based on the artifacts and monuments that still remain.

Stories throughout the english version of the bible, today's modern version, speak of many events that changed the coarse of humanity in our past. If we look at the stories in the bible as historical accounts of what actually took place, then we need to research the origins of these stories. The hebrew version of the bible, known as the Old Testament, which is a much older version than the english translation, is derived from the stories of the Sumerian Culture. When we trace the origins of the Old testament we can see that it is also based on previous translations from subsequent older languages throughout history.

That correct.

Your 3 BIG Myths:

1) the Big Bang when nothing exploded
and created everything.

2) rain falling on rocks and settling in a mud puddle and spontaneous self generating life sprang forth.

3) plants evolving into plant eating animals.

And when I snap my fingers you will wake up and believe these 3 myths as if they were fact.

Wrong read up your definition of "plagiarize".

"The Sumerian culture, the first civilization to invent writing as a complete written language, recorded stories that have been preserved through the modern day biblical passages found in the Old and New testament. All of which speak of a time when man lived among their living gods here on earth. The Sumerians had 7 sacred tablets that explained our creation. These stories preserved in stone, are now told to us in the form of the english version, "7 days of creation".

They also had a story of a great flood, and how one of the Gods choose to give a certain Sumerian man knowledge on how to build a boat that could withstand the great flood. All the stories in the bible are just translated versions of the original Sumerian Texts that we still have today preserved in stone, unchanged.

The Sumerians tell us that their Gods, taught them all the amazing knowledge that the Sumerian Culture possessed, 6,000 years ago. They called their Gods, "anunnaki" which is translated to mean "those who from heaven to earth came"..

They have left us artifacts and stone tablet pictures that say the anunnaki came from another planet within our own solar system. They call this planet "Nibiru" which is where the anunnaki come from, according to the Sumerian translations. The Sumerians say that the anunnaki live on Nibiru, which has a 3,600 year orbit around our sun. All the other information they state including the color of the outer planets, and even the distance between the planets, has been proven to be accurate. We sent space probes out in the 70's that took the first pictures in color, which confirmed the Sumerian descriptions.

The Sumerians were the first to invent over 100 of the first's for a modern culture. All academic references to the origins of writing, math, science, medicine, astronomy, lead to the Sumerian Culture and their amazing artifacts. We still use their math, medicine, science, time, music, astronomy, and many other fields, even to this day."

Probably you already know of this movie.
It's your mention of Deepak Chopra that made me think of it.
