No, you didn't.

NEWS FLASH: a "circle" is a flat, two-dimensional object.

well there is again...you claim to know more about religion than religion does.lol
It's alright for you to try to "debunk" religion, but applying the very same standard to your ideology is taboo?
like I said double standards on your part that are quite obvious.
yet i know about religion. more than most people here that claim to be believers, it seems.

see the difference?

Again, you need to know what you are talking about , then post.

No you don't know anything about religion if you couldn't even make a sound interpretation of the word.

What stories are mythological in science? I never said that.

so who decides how to interpret the figurative parts? i already covered the theological mess that creates and how the given answer from your cult has already been proven wrong..

catch up!

you know nothing about faith, or the belief in God...the foundation of religion...by your own admission you neither have faith, or believe in God...but yet claim to be an expert on the subjects...funny.

in fact, i have repeatedly shown i seem to know more about it than the people here that claim to be believers.

most studies show that atheists, freethinkers, non-beleivers, know more about religion than most people who claim to be adherents to said religion.

as i stated earlier, learning about religion is one of the surest ways to create nonbelievers. this is why all relgions have resisted educated the masses about their religion. historical fact.

i certainly understand the concepts,a dn i know religion, which is what we are talking about.

yes, I have studied the history of the belief in god. in many gods. this is where i draw my comments about the cult-like nature of relgigions.

if you can show where my knowledge of these are in error, please do so. you seem to have been trying for a while now and have not done it once.

actually, the universe has no center...so anywhere can be an arbitrary center...

The statement that the earth is the center of the universe...is a subjective truth.

The same as anywhere can be a starting point of a circle.
