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?"

Honest answer indeed!
If they don't know that, that means they don't know that God almighty do exist.
I calculate that figure at 72.

You said that you "knew".

That's not faith.

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

Yet again, where is science trying to disprove your deity?

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

Conclusively, no one can disprove the existence of God.

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

Remember, we are talking about the International Dateline. Dispute my statement if you have the evidence.

I am telling you that, we believe in something we don't see, and it is really working for us, but you guys do not, and yet you have no answers to date.

Under science we have two beliefs of thought:
1. Atheism and
2. Christianity.
Yes or no?
If yes, then your statements are just mere assertions.

The International Date Line is 180 degrees longitude. It's bent a bit to avoid places where people live, so it won't be Tuesday in the living room and Monday in the bedroom, but it's 180 for all that.

That's a completely arbitrary extension of the completely arbitrary decision to put the Prime Meridian (that's zero degrees, remember?) through the Royal Observatory in Greenwich.

You do know how that works, don't you?
