What ?
I am telling him to give me 3 characters that archaeology has verified in Harry Porter since he has been comparing it with the bible.
Are you supporting him, Willy?

That's NOT what you said.

Here:
"More shit from you.
Now give me three( 3) archaeological proof or evidence for Harry Porter ?"

That's what you said.

You were given them.

So you're changing the question because you didn't like the answer.

That's dishonest, at the least.

Bollocks.

If you don't know, "I don't know" is the ONLY real, true answer.

Try this: how, exactly, did your deity create the Universe?

Yes, I remember the thread title. I took it as an invitation to debate.

I while away the odd idle hour pointing out why Evolution (supported by rational, scientific, demonstrable data) works.

And why "Goddidit", supported by nothing but the assertion, doesn't.

Science works.
Doesn't give a sh!t what you believe, Charles.

<quoted text>Many of the different sciences are working on projects that end up having some consequences for religious beliefs. One has only to make the connection.

Many scientific endeavors aimed at proving points in the Bible have ended up disproving them.

Case in point: archaeologists have been scouring the Sinai desert for over a hundred years to find evidence for the Biblical Exodus. They have been unable to find ANYTHING that corroborates it. Not one piece of anything to indicate that a million+- Hebrews walked the area escaping the Egyptian 'Pharoah' and his army.

The archaeologists found evidence of smaller groups passing in the desert, both before and after the reputed time....but nothing at all for the 'Exodus"

So here we have a part of the Bible that has thrilled people for a few thousand years, a founding story for the religion of Yahweh, and it's been proved totally false.

Archaeologists have also been unable to find evidence in Egypt for a million+ Hebrews living in or leaving Egypt at any time.

That's just one of a number of things that science has proven to be wrong in the Christian Bible.
"Archaeologists have also been unable to find evidence in Egypt for a million+ Hebrews living in or leaving Egypt at any time."

We can't seem to find the rock that provided the last missing mineral to the primordial soup that created life either.

Go figure!

So you would rather rely on strangers for your information than to search it out for yourself when you have access to the one tool that can bring it to you directlty?? Oh wait... you're a 'believer' which means having your thinking done for you is par for the course.

Yes, the scientific concensus is that an asteroid about the size of Mt. Everest struck the earth about 65 million years ago. It blew out a crater about 100 miles wide, and produced a variety of effects on a global scale.
Per Wiki: "The impactor had an estimated diameter of 10 km (6.2 mi) and delivered an estimated energy equivalent of 100 teratons of TNT (4.21023 J).[21] By contrast, the most powerful man-made explosive device ever detonated, the Tsar Bomba, had a yield of only 57 megatons of TNT (2.41017 J),[22] making the Chicxulub impact 2 million times more powerful."

Actually it is most likely we are in a computor simulation. It would explain why there are no waves, that would result from a big bang.

Will three historical references do the trick?

Nicolas Flammel (c. 1330-1418) was a French scrivener.
Legend shrouded Flammel with supernatural powers by people living in the Seventeenth Century, not by J. K. Rowling.

Paracelsus (1493-1541) was a German Swiss astrologer.

Henry Cornelius Agrippa (1486-1535) was a German astrologer and alchemist.

All three historical figures are mentioned in the Harry Potter books.
You say that if King Herod was an actual person, that proves that the entire Bible is true?
Then if Flamel, Paracelsus, and Agrippa were actual people, why doesn't that prove that the Harry Potter novels are true?

So how were the aliens made?
As far as the question concerns you are just shifting the problem on someone else's turf.
And then it does not matter what attributes you give it.
But have you read up by now some proper translations of old Akkadian? Guess not.
More important issue...Who made God? How was he made? Humans know the Bible is a real book, they hold it, its an inanimate object. Humans know bones and monkeys are real. Humans know the earth, galaxies and the universe are real. Now, that being said you want proof. Without question, the aliens from the universe are mistaken for God(s) by the primitive human animals. The Bible is the human attempt to forget the truth........"fear of the unknown".Imagine the primitive human animal 2000 years ago having an encounter with an alien being. The alien being first controls the human with mind manipulation. Then allows the human animal to glimpse the aliens world. Then, the human animal knows nobody will believe them. Matter of fact, if they tell the other primitives they will likely be stoned to death, hanged or nailed to a cross. So, instead the primitives humans of the times created a story, the Bible and the rest is history. Even today, the primitives dont believe aliens exist and from what we know they never will. Brainwashing at its finest....thank God!
