Thanks for showing everyone your ignorance.

You accept a story with no evidence and when the obvious is pointed out to you then the old incredulity steps in. absolutely amazing how ignorant some langoliers can be

No

I know research is not something you are good at, so I offered some help.

Or, Langoliers, "without god." As we are are until there is one shred of evidence of such a creature.

There are multiple definitions listed with words for a reason, you being dishonest and ignoring them only demonstrates that you do not care about reality.

Those dates were Ussher's dates in that video. What dates would you put on those events?

Look at the dates between the Flood and the events listed in that video. Starting with three breeding pairs, the Bible was quite clear that Noah had more kids, how many kids would each pair need and their offspring need to generate to populate at a bare minimum several cities of thousands and a nation of millions? Plus the population of the rest of the world. China was a nation of tens of millions at the very least even then.

You are saying the dates he got from Ussher are wrong, what are the "correct" dates.

Yes, I did too. Please note the "Moi???" in my reply.

We all make mistakes at times. Even me. I think I made one ten years ago or so.

It seems, Kittencoder, that while the people basing their life choices on reason and science strive to be factual and true, the ones who base their lives on religious cults arealmost constantly using dishonesty to support their world view. Sad. Very sad.

I hope you are feeling better...

Incorrect we have a God and God has his people. God came to earth and told us all about himself and what was expected of us. Denying him does not eliminate him.

Found this blog quite interesting.
I think he got my name wrong its not Langan it's Langoliers. Anyways here's the blog.

"I just finished the book "Outliers" by Malcolm Gladwell. Among the topics are one on Christopher Langan who has an IQ of 195, which is supposed to be the highest in the world. After finishing the chapter I googled him, and found out that he has been studying physics on his own for pretty much his entire life but only went to college for one year.

What interested me was that he has been working on something that he calls "Cognitive-Theoretic Model of the Universe". While I don´t understand much of it (few does) I was surprised to see that he actually believes in God. Not only that, he claims that it is possible to mathematically prove that God exists and that we have a soul. At first glance I was amazed of this, since I´m a complete atheist (and swedish - none of use are believers). But I can´t help thinking that, since his mind are more powerful than anyone else´s, maybe he has seen further than anyone ever have. This scares me a little bit, b/c obv if he is correct I really don´t want to die for obvious reasons "
