If we could even begin to understand the creation we might use an analogy. I am a Christian and I believe Jesus did miracles by the power of God which created all things in heaven and earth. If we could consider that a miracle is an event which happens at once as in the water made into wine (John 2), we could see that the wine was real. How can the rational person come up with a reason or cause for the wine? Good wine is juice from grapes which is vintage of a plantation of grape vines. It does normally take time for wine to be made, but with God all things are possible, and he can make things exist and truly happen that are above mans reasoning.
Sometimes I will joke and say that "faith" is synonymous with "gullibility". Sadly it is for you.

There is no evidence for any of the miracles in the Bible. Why do you believe it? Is it just because it makes you feel good? If god exists I would assume he would want us to use the brain that we have. It is not perfect, but if works rather well at simple tasks and even simple tasks can ascertain whether something is true or false. When the Bible is tested it does not fare too well.

Seriously, if there was a flood there should be physical evidence.
There is none.
The earth surface is 70% covered with water that came from the breaking up of the fountains of the great deep.

Most of the oceans salt came from beneath the ocean floor, because river runoff decreases the average salinity and couldn't be the reason that the sodium chloride has occured in seawater.

...or maybe because salt does not evaporate along with water, billions of years of minor additions of salt in fresh water runoff has just accumulated to cause the salinity of the oceans, which has been steadily increasing over the earth's history.

If Santa is Satan, then Claus is Lucas.

In Greece the name Lucas comes from the patron saint of doctors, artists and creative's. In Latin Lucas means bringer of light and Lucas also has the same meaning in English.

Lucifer is also bringer of light!

Christmas is all about the devil? I knew there is something fishy. lol

Salt comes out of the seas too. Look at the various salt and anhydrite deposits that can be found around the world. Just like the water cycle, there is a salt cycle too.

The hexagram is Satan's symbol for Israel, while the menorah is God's symbol.

Darwin Buster Two: There are laws of embryology that directly contradict "ape to human evolution." One reason is that genes work together in teams to form body parts during embryonic development.
Utterly false.
This makes it impossible to add genes to any genome because there is no way to coordinate any new gene with existing genes. Yet "ape to human evolution" requires apes and humans to be able to add genes - for example, the chimpanzee Y chromosome has 37 genes and the human Y chromosome has at least 78 genes.

Ah. You didn't get this from a science source. That explains the incredibly stupid and incorrect nonsense you are spouting.

Go find a science source to reference your claims. I know, I know, you can't because your claims are ridiculous. Not a my problem thing.

Or a few thousand, depending on how you look at it.
We're not actually waiting. We're moving ahead with what we have. What creationists propose is so absurd, so utterly worthless, it's completely ignored.

And that's why contemporary society can enjoy antibiotics, freedom from parasites and genetic therapy.
