PROVEN A LIAR - AGAIN.
Gen 7:
"4 Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH every living creature I have made...”
"...17 For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and as the waters increased they lifted the ark high above the earth. 18 The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. 19 They rose greatly on the earth, and ALL THE HIGH MOUNTAINS UNDER THE ENTIRE HEAVENS WERE COVERED. 20 The waters rose and covered the mountains TO A DEPTH OF MORE THAN FIFTEEN CUBITS. 21 Every living thing that moved on land perished—birds, livestock, wild animals, all the creatures that swarm over the earth, and all mankind. 22 Everything on dry land that had the breath of life in its nostrils died. 23 Every living thing ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH was wiped out; people and animals and the creatures that move along the ground and the birds were wiped from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark."

Thanks for the data showing that the expression "global flood" is not used.
By that criterion, the word "god" isn't used, either.

Are you now accepting that Noah's flood never happened or are you just resorting to your usually language hair-splitting.
The latter, I'm sure.

Unsatisfied with a graphic description of what can only be called a global flood, he's going to insist on the actual modern English words.

Atheism? Oh, it's just HTS telling us his "scientific alternative" to reality is invisible Jewmagic.

Theology is irrelevant to science, period.

The problems is that the sediments you see in sedimentary rocks are not the kind of sediments you would see in a flood. They are the sort of sediments you would see in long slow depositions. Many of the first geologists were Christians looking for evidence of the flood. They found the opposite, they found evidence against the flood.

<quoted text>Dogen, you need to stop parroting BS from atheist websites and attempt to at least understand the garbage you're swallowing. Unless you can provide scientific evidence that no global flood occurred, you should keep quiet.

No global flood ever occurred. Only uneducated morons believe in that nonsense.

100% of the existing research shows no evidence at all of any global flood EVER in the 4.5 billion year history of planet earth.

Yet there is no other way to accept that there is life else where in the universe except in faith. 3....I'm with you, I have no problem with there possibly being life else where, but at this point there is no reason to think there is.4....that guy in the video gave me many reasons to reject his psuedoscience.

[sigh....bangs head]
Jane, you ignorant slut, life exists in 100% of the solar systems we have given much of any study to.

Since RNA is naturally occurring AND DNA is a product of RNA ....(connect the dots).

Now, of course there is no PROOF there is life anywhere else in the universe, but it is extremely likely.

Remember, complex hydrocarbons literally rain down from space.

You do the math.

<quoted text>You are weakened to the point of redefintions. It is not a logical conclusion to believe that lifeless matter can evolve into intelligence, consciousness, and self awareness.

Actually, based on the existent evidence, that is the only possible scientific conclusion. No faith is required to accept something that is nearly infinitely probable.

ROTFLMFAO!!!!

This is hysterical.

I no longer believe you even graduated from HS. You have, at best, a HS completion certificate from SEP classes.

The Water laid sediment are at MANY levels. Separated by volcanic ash, lava flow, land slides,........ and evidence of LIFE EVOLVING over time.

Sediments were laid down over billions of years.

Marine fossils are not only ON mountains they are buried deep WITHIN them.

There have been MANY periods of extinctions and bottlenecks.

So it is evidence.... evidence of a multi billion year old earth and of the evolution of life.

You are nearly as ignorant about science as marksman.
