God is not a myth, we have heard that often from sceptics and liars but today they are no more while the work of God continues.

And again, you are going to end up like others, adding nutrients to the soil while the work of God must surely continue. Lets bet that!

In fact it is...a re-hashed myth from previous cults.

if it is not a myth, where is your evidence of this god?

So the bible is fictionalized history? so what? it's basic premise is based on proven lies...you know this but as a cult member, you cannot stray from the cult line...

Why were Newton, Copernicus, Galileo, etc, firm believers of God ?
Faith made them to have that.
They lived in a time when the church would kill you if you did not believe.

and now that people around the world are free to openly express their disbelief in the cults, the change is happening rapidly..

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.
Charles Idemi wrote:

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.

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.

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.
