What if I'm approached by a World Book salesman, an Encyclopedia Brittanica salesman, and a Kirby vacuum cleaner salesman?

What if I'm approached by an astrologer, a numerologist, and apalm reader?

No wild guesses. Hence they pass scientific testing.
Hence why you are incapable of going through it piece by piece and objectively showing to everyone here why it's wrong in a scientific manner.
Poor boy.
Lol
Buddy, there is a limitation for humans, " death ".
So, if there is, science or scientific method do have limitations.
Faith carries the day.

No, they were believers. And they still enjoyed those things even AFTER Rome became Christian.
Twice.
Me on the other hand, I find killing distasteful. Nice try at ad-hom though.
Evolutionist on this thread, seem to be infatuated with killing...that seems to be the only bible verses that they are willing to reference.

Faith isn't an answer. It may be fine on a personal philosophical level, but beyond that can be considered BS. Muslims have faith yet you would dispute their answers DESPITE the fact you just said that they have the best approach.
Of course if scientists really COULDN'T find that evidence and were working as fruitlessly as you claim, you wouldn't even be able to type on that computer you're on right now.
Never let it be said that fundies aren't monumentally massive hypocrites.
Lol
I like that. If God does not gave humans their complex, can they create or invent things?
Think Buddy!
Islam is just an offshoot of Judaism and Christianity blended with Islamic culture.

This universe had a beginning Gen 1:1 and it will end Rev 21:1 God created the heaven and the earth by speaking it into existence. The Word of God created all things. The Word of God is responsible and God is the primary cause and he is only answerable to his word.

Besides, to err is to human. You could be wrong about God. You will never accept that because of your own hubris.
I am telling it/ that to your face that, humans are imperfect except God.

People have been using "applied science" way before the "invention" of fire.

Who was it on here that was trying to take credit for the "invention" of fire?

Probably wanted to apply for a retro-patent.lol

If you respected them you wouldn't be so dishonest. I'll be honest and come right out and say that I don't respect fundies, for that very reason.
God, Jesus are real. No one can deny. Why? Because of my personal encounter of them, thanks to the bible and other religious books for more edifications of my faith.
Despite that, i do have respect for Bill( Thewordofme).

and God replying..." you got any proof?"

So many questions. In summary, lets learn to respect every ones beliefs( faiths) and traditions.
What brought me to topix, was the way atheist were/ are speaking against God, Jesus and the Christians.
That actually is a sceptical attitude.

"God" is irrelevant to science, period. Unless you have scientific evidence.
LOL. Is that a joke? What were scientists thinking about quoting a bible verse in natural history museums? I just went to visit a local one recently near a prestigious university.

Without the complex nature of human brain, which is an handiwork of God the creator, there would have been no inventions like computer, the internet, world wide web, Email, etc.

Atheism is fine, with it's a live and let live attitude...It's actually based on Christian values. But there is a subversive Atheist movement, bend on the destruction of Christianity in particular...these type of people have no respect for others at all...

Some even get payed for attacking Christianity...so don't ever expect respect from such people.

We are more thoroughly an enlightened people, with respect to our political interests, than perhaps any other under heaven. Every man among us reads, and is so easy in his circumstances as to have leisure for conversations of improvement and for acquiring information.- Benjamin Franklin

You may not understand this. This is due to man's excessive abuse of the natural environment( earth) created by God.
We want to know every thing when in actual sense, we can not.
Stubborness, i may call that.

Is your conclusion that children would be better off living in a teepee on the plains eating raw buffalo liver until the god of evolution catches them up to todays pace?
What on Earth, kind of bigoted response is THAT?

First, don't get all snooty towards Native Americans. Most of Europe was in no more advanced state as little as 2000 years ago when the Romans took control. Second, using fire and cooking food goes as far back as 300 to 400 thousand years ago, maybe longer. Homo Erectus used fire.
