Chuckles, I don't cast pearls before swine. You first need to show that you understand the concept of evidence.
Subtles, you are always fond of boasting of evidence as well as proofs, now show it.

<quoted text>See, you're doing that all ass-over-apex.
You are trying to cloak rational, logical and scientific points in hatred.
I suppose that makes it easier for you to grasp, since the science and logic are apparently beyond you.
One of the bits you're missing is that all deities, like all mythical creatures, are the same.
The FSM is on exactly the same plane as your deity - and Thor, and Marduk, and all the others.
Nothing new here , just Thor and Marduk

We're working on it dude....give us some time.
After all we only began the work about 60+- years ago.
Nature took millions of years.

Nor do you.
How does that demonstrate your deity?
You don't know me, do you? and neither do i, but you are the one that openly confessed that you don't know.
For me and others, we knew.

If one believes that the Christian God is real then you are believing in a crazy and mentally deficient God. All one has to do is read the Old Testament to see how bad 'He' is/was.
Genocidal and egotistical loon.
Damn! you've already proved my point, can't you STFU .

Or any deity?

<quoted text>That really is completely arbitrary, based simply on the fact that the Brits decided to run the Prime Meridien (zero degrees longitude) through the Royal Observatory in Greenwich.
Zero degrees becomes 180 degrees, of course, when it crosses the Poles.
(Stand back, folks - I dunno how big the splash zone might be from this one.)
The Brits?
Are you indirectly accusing them of your ignorance?

I don't remember hearing God helping the humans to defeat diseases (which He undoubtedly made) and help us live longer and give us relief from pain and suffering. In fact I don't know of any instances where He helped humanity at all.
In the last hundred years or so I think science has helped mankind more than your God has in over 2,000 years. Would you contest this statement??
All the evidences you are seeking for, are found in the bible you rejected.
If truly you are right, there would be no bible at all to read.

And again, all credits goes to God for giving us the brain for science, art, technology and social or management sciences.

Faith is the evidence of things not seen, we Christians have it, but you don't.

Foul!
For round earth, read the book of Isa. 40 vs 22.
For the other, read the book of Job.
Thank you for the red herring,
but I thought it was clear enough that
I wasn't talking about the shape of the earth,
I was talking about the bandwagon fallacy.

Can't you stay on the same topic that long?

You remind me of the guy who went to the doctor and said,
"I have this terrible problem! I can't remember anything!"
The doctor said, "Oh, really? How long has this been going on?"
The man said, "How long has what been going on?"
