Aside from you horrible grammar, likely a result from some emotional meltdown. Where is your evidence of that assertion?
Tell me you liar, how did the universe came into form?
None of you can answer that, to date!

You don't like the answer because we're the ones being honest about it, and your answer betrays you to be a liar.

We all know how the universe came into being. There was this creation event called the big bang. A better question is why... what set it in motion.

No, the lines don't exist. The lines we put on maps represent the longitude and latitude coordinates. The coordinates are arbitrary, we decided on them because it is the best method for navigating a spherical body, they represent the angle from the x and y axises of the planet. There are no lines, none, they don't even exist.
You are a sham!
What about the equator, the functions of the datelines, whereby a day is either gained or lost, is that not reality in your eyes, Kitten?
You are indeed clueless.

<quoted text>Can you see those imaginary lines, yes or no?
Humans made up those longitude & latitude lines to be used by those that know how to use them.

Similarly, humans ALSO invented the concept of 'spirits', so they can control the weak of mind.

I guess you are.
You're the one who says they're responsible for saying where the universe came from.

Wrong!
What about the functions of the datelines, where you either gain or lose a day, is that not reality in your very eyes?
Spirits do exist, period.

Probably, I agree with both evolution and Creation. Both came together to create the diversity on this planet. That is the open minded approach to existence. God jump started this place, let nature take it's course and then injected advanced DNA which were Adam and Eve.
There was no Adam and Eve.

Yes if you use a VERY liberal use of the word religion then yea it can apply to anything, Including YOUR obtuse version of it.
But you demonstrated you have no idea of what your talking about. Atheism isn't evolution. In fact not all atheists believe in evolution, just like not all theists disbelieve in evolution.
Now the last part of your post is ironic projection.
Its what creationists do"to explain what they cannot comprehend."
As to your last sentence that would be correct but only in sofar that we have a new understanding and vocabulary.
You can take as examples Democritos and his atoms.
Or Heraclitus (500 BC) and his concept of everything in dynamic flow (you can't cross the same river twice.
Or the old YHWH whose appellation means Be-Life and that incorporates all surroundings and Heraclitus concept.
For the longest time people have been opposing religion but it's as if the salience of it only now took hold in the minds of people.
Makes one wonder how long it takes for a meme to take hold.
In the old days you would just have some priest or reverent that would smyth ye with fire and brimstone, but now every yoyo declares themselves all-knowing.

You have an actual theory? Or do you think the string theory can give you some insight.
"String theory"? No need of that there.

That's like saying 42 is the answer to everything, life, and the universe. So what exactly is T0 +400,000 with no point of location.
Sorry, that was when the Universe was about 400,000 years old.

"T0" means "Time-Zero".

The one has nothing to do with the other.

400,000 years was the point at which the Universe became cool enough for stable atoms to form.
