Pretending it hasn't been explained to you in the past doesn't negate that reality. That's just you lying.

So, you think there IS evidence that refutes the Bible flood? REALLY? Name it. Or, admit that I accurately portrayed your attitude toward the evidence and your blatant confirmation bias.

Don't waste you time, Salma. KAB doesn't really want data. He just wants to stick his fingers in his ears and yell "La-la-la-la". Like he always does.

How's things in Egypt? Been a long while since I was there.

In your reference I found no answer to the question of what the city opposite island Tyre was known as when Nebuchadnezzar arrived. Your reference did note that Tyre may have originated on the mainland.
So what? Do you really think that changes the fact that it was the island city that was attacked. A piss poor attempt at misdirection on your part.

As your reference notes, there's no confirmation it didn't happen.

This is delusional.

Mt.15:21,
Mk.7:24 & 31
Acts 21:3

Furthermore:

19 Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am going to give Egypt to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and he will carry off its wealth. He will loot and plunder the land as pay for his army. 20 I have given him Egypt as a reward for his efforts because he and his army did it for me, declares the Sovereign Lord.

Humm.... interesting, but it never happened.

Just like Nebby failed agains Tyre, he also failed against Egypt.

Poor prophecy.

Even worse history.

Since the details are 'the "prophecy" failed in every way' I would say that is an instrumental failure on your part.

Seem like Ezekiel was nearly as poor at prophecy as the modern day watchtower cult. Now what did the bible say about false prophets?


Isaiah 44:25
Jeremiah 14:14 !!!
Jeremiah 23:16
Jeremiah 50:36
Lamentations 2:14
Ezekiel 13:1 & 9(irony noted)
Ezekiel 22:28
Hosea 11:6
Matthew 7:15
Matthew 24:11 & 24
Mark 13:22
2 Peter 2:1 (ouch!)
1 John 4:1

Speaking of false prophets....

Notice the (Masonic) CROSS?

Notice the same symbol here
http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/False%20Religi...

Notice the building in the background? It is a masonic temple.

Do you know who is buried in the pyramid with the masonic cross on it?

Chucky Taze Russell. A 33 degree mason.

Humm.... does your cult not condemn freemasonry?

Do they not also deny that Russell was a mason?

Does his tomb not also have a Knights Templar inscription on it?

Do you want to walk with me through the contorted web of Watchtower denials about CTR's membership in the Masons (and occult groups).

Do you know where Russell got money to start his religious order?

What a poor analogy.

You know what the secret of a good analogy is? The two situations must be analogous!

You have NOT identified data which harmonizes with the global flood. All you've done is cite examples of locals flood while ignoring absolute proof that a global flood never occurred. The really sad part is you still believe you're right.

However, the author of "It's the Darwin crowd that lacks the facts in evolution debate" is also very lacking in knowledge. He evidently has following anything in paleoanthropology. We have dozens of species tying modern humans to our common ancestor with the other apes. There are fossils from 1000's of individuals making up this fossil record. Yet he claims there is no evidence.
He also shows a distinct lack of knowledge of the workings of the scientific method. Historical sciences, such as paleoanthropology, work in a very different fashion than he seems to think. Direct experimentation is not possible, but predictions and repeatable observations are.

Per my post #114169


The mainland was called Ushu

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ushu

"and the mainland settlement, originally called Ushu (later called Palaetyrus, meaning "Old Tyre," by the Greeks) was actually more like a line of suburbs than any one city and was used primarily as a source of water and timber for the main island city"

I hope this data will not disturb you too much. I know how you hate data.

Do you know your stupid or is it like a fish not realizing he is in water?

My God knew precisely what he was talking about imprecisely (Heb. 4:12). Specifically, he knew there would be ones like you who would feel justified while being openly publicly incorrect.

Mike should actually get more than one point for this:

"My God knew precisely what he was talking about imprecisely"

But I included no provisions for awarding multiple points based on the inane stupidity of the competition.

Look at a friggin map, you moron. Much of the island HAS been rebuilt.
Tyre, akin to what it was then, has not been rebuilt, and much of its ruins remain.
