Yup, we all start the race together.
We do not all finish the race together

You don't need to know. It's not something you'll be experiencing.

Actually, there is no way to know that, if humans are 200,000 years old (or is it 400,000, it keeps changing.)
Ever see any of the World Without Us shows? We now know that almost no evidence of any advanced civilization would endure past a few thousands years. And things like the pyramids are only a tiny fraction of the total sum of structures built.
Skyscrapers would not last past a 1000 years, cars and their engines no more than 50 to a 100 years, etc, etc. All traces would be gone, period.
Nature is a very harsh recycler.
OMG, that is the most pure, unmitigated bullshit I have read in a long time!

in fact, we have very direct evidence of civilizations that old. verifiable evidence.

the ;lastics and metal components of our modern civilization will be around for far, far longer than a few thousand years.

you are full of shit, dude.

Most likely no gender, however the more you do for Jesus the more you get rewarded in heaven. Women do usually suffer more on earth so they most likely will have more rewards in heaven. I understand the point made, too bad this stuff befuddles you so much.
Why are there male and female beings, deities, Gods and Goddesses?

Then you don't know much about archeology then. How did they find fossils from millions of years ago if there is no way to trace when the earliest civilizations came to existence? It doesn't make sense.

a complex society with a culture and government. Why did early civilizations have similarities but existed in different parts of the world? Did God decide to show up at about 10,000 BC in different cultures?
perhaps it took that long for groups of people to organize their efforts.

Read the book "guns germs, and steel." it is very edifying.

Quite.

I love folks who start off with "there is no factual evidence of evolution". Of course there is. Now you may dispute the interpretation of it but to say it doesn't exist is pure bullshit.

All of it. The model doesn't work. When the model was proposed in earlier times when we understood less about biology, it might have made sense. But now that we now know that mutations in all species are extremely rare, and POSITIVE mutations are even more rare, the model falls apart.

Now we know through biology that changes in any species are extremely difficult to occur naturally, and still extremely difficult to force by manipulation. We cannot even force evolution to happen, let alone stand by an observe it.

Does that help?

that also, is not factually correct. nice try. again, which parts of it are incorrect?

difficult to force? seriously dude?!?!? we are making new species of plants every year! we have manipulated animals so they glow in the freakin' dark?

you are so far over your idiotic head that you can't even fathom (pun intended..) the depths ( again) of your ignorance.

<quoted text>sure we can! humans have created thousands of gods. most of them more interesting than yours.
maybe the universe was, is and always will be and then humans created god.(well, we know the last part is true. llok at all the human traits your mythical god has, he is a vindictive, jealous little prick. why would a god be so human like if humans didn't invent him?
We invented the god concept and yet we will all die, either timely or time, why?
Since we are the inventors then why can we not inmortalise .
