For me and others, we knew.
So, you lack faith?

I do, thank you.

Now, where is science trying to disprove your deity?

Or any deity?

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.

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

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?"

If they don't know that, that means they don't know that God almighty do exist.

You said that you "knew".

That's not faith.

You either don't know, or you lack faith - which is it?

That was your claim, let's see you support it.

Any person that says God do not exist in this world we are, are nothing but crazy whether half or full.
