I've addressed you directly hundreds and hundreds of times over. You in turn are incapable of addressing anything.

So you see now why your post is particularly ironic.

Then, what is now the essence of the debate?
There is no debate. Never has been. The essence of all the fuss is that a bunch of reality-denying fruitcakes take ancient parables literally even if they were never meant to be and so claim that reality is not real because an invisible Jewish wizard did things differently.

<quoted text> Then answer the question, how did the universe came into form?
The credit are not to humans, plants nor animals, then to who?
You assume a "who" is necessary. Until we have more information it would be far more appropriate to say "what".

But leaving aside the question of the singularity itself, so far the evidence points to the Big Bang.

Isa. 40 vs 22.
Read that!
The bible is real. Period.
Yes, the Bible is real. That is not always the case for the claims in its collection of stories however. Period.

The Bible is not true just because the Bible sez so.

Herod was a real guy.

His order to kill babies cannot be verified.

Talking lizards and donkeys never existed.

Period.

I am an educationist, Business Administrator and a minister of the gospel.
By the grace of God that is an achievement.
So is climbing the stairs.

By the way, "educationist" is showing as wrong on my spell check.

With good reason.

In just this one case however I will let you off since English is not your first language.

Oh, and I'm still waiting on that 500 quid for letting you use it.

Why were Newton, Copernicus, Galileo, etc, firm believers of God ?
Faith made them to have that.
Yes, but that has little to do with their contributions to science.

Sure, Newton may have said God was his inspiration, but his theory of gravity was still inaccurate.

And are Francis Collins and Ken Miller believers of God? Why yes they are!

And they still think fundie YECism is complete bollox. With good reason.

The reality is likely quite different. You have no idea how nuanced Christianity can be. After all there are numerous sects, all with their own different ideas of how it works. Dogen who posts with us lot is a Buddhist Christian for example, IIRC.

Just understand the meaning of that word.
I do. Remember, it's MY word. Not yours. I own it. By your own admission. And that being the case I'm pulling rank and telling you straight up that you're using it wrong.

No-one needs faith to know that a steamroller is gonna make someone flat if they get in the way.

And man, you've been steam-rolled so many times.

Just disagreed with him.

To disagree with Chuck is to disagree with God Almighty Himself.

Chuck says so.

Oddly enough, God didn't even mention him.(shrug)

<quoted text> Fine, disagreements are normal.
But the bible stands out for every true believers of Christ.
Sure it does. Hence "Christian". But since they all disagree over the correct way to interpret it...

And that's just the KJV which has already been translated into English FOR them.(shrug)

Chuck, you're a big fat massive hypocritical dishonest liar for Jesus. Not an insult, just an observation. So that means you don't really get to claim others are dishonest.

You and your side do not have evidence that back yours.

We probably know the Bible better than you do. For example, we probably know the Ten Commandments better than you do.

Because they are really returning space craft that we sent out. They just don't land very good some times.

There is no mirror in the science community. They all look out never in.
