Fact. There was no global flood. No Noah. No Adam and Eve. No talking lizards. No talking donkeys. And the Earth is DEFINITELY not flat.
So just because it got Herod right doesn't mean that other parts have not been falsified. Even the priesthood have known this for nearly 400 years.
Amazing how accurate "prophecy" is - as long as it's in the "prophet's" past.

Goes all pear-shaped when it comes to his future, though.

The refusal to acknowledge intelligent design in the universe laughable.
The inability of ID supporters to scientifically support their assertions, yet want it included in public school science curriculums, is what is laughable.

"God is the Master Scientist Who keeps His theories to Himself."

God the Physicist:
We published a previous article on this internet site which suggested that the physicistís unseen Higgs Field was the same as our proposed undetected God Field. The Higgs field is essential to the structure of matter and in turn to life itself. Our thoughts were that at the time of the big bang, only God existed as unique Light Energy particles. We further suggested that these special resting Light Energy particles acted like a reverse black hole and contained the darkness and all the gaseous ingredients necessary to kick start our universe 14 billion years ago. At a time of Godís choosing, He caused or became the big bang, and today Godís Light Energy represents more than one billion quadrillion of these special particles. Godís energy particles are still geometrically increasing as our universe perpetually expands.

God the Microbiologist:
While the universe is approximately 14 billion years old, our earth did not form until 4.5 billion years ago and we did not see the first fossilized microorganisms until 3.8 billion years ago. But where did these bacteria come from? If you examine the scientific studies on the Origin of Life, you discover that scientists cannot tell you how life initially began, just like they cannot tell you what happened during those Divine moments before the big bang. Bacteria and other advanced life forms have DNA but you canít make DNA without enzyme proteins and you canít make enzyme proteins without DNA. Itís the chicken and egg hypothesis where you donít know which came first. No scientist in any laboratory has found a way to create macromolecules of DNA or enzyme proteins. So how did these fossilized microorganisms appear 3.8 billion years ago? Francis Crick the Nobel Laureate, who with James Watson solved the double helix structure of DNA, proposed that aliens on UFO spaceships brought these microorganisms to earth 3.8 billion years ago.

As for you not believing it , you puddle goats have a favorite line ,...your incredulity is not an arguement.
Zero evidence is just admitting humans are clueless. Nothing to do with understanding, its unable to cope with not knowing about the world around them.So, no evigence is just the primitive human animal guessing or theorizing about their existence. And, most of the info in text or on the net they believe as true......Why not ask yourself, think for yourself, is that really true or just BS on a global scale.

Experience is the nectar of life. 2000 years ago humans thought the world was flat. Who made God? Today, they know there are to many galaxies to count, what will they know tomorrow. Deep space exploration holds the key to understanding human existence. The Bible story and evolution will be explained away by critical thinking, not by praying or bone collecting. We are on the edge of the truth. Most humans will never accept the truth. The "God seed" was planted or the bones/monkey DNA wont let the truth enter their gray matter. Logic will prevail. Humans think they cant be tricked......really?

everybody knows that the FSM was made up to mock the belief in God.
Surprise surprise, again you are incorrect. The FSM was not about mocking God, but actually about mocking the idea of teaching religious apologetics in public school science classes. So anyone, that includes theists AND atheists who agree with what you just said have completely missed the point.

Oh, and that STILL doesn't stop it from being possible that the FSM is the REAL creator of the universe, because you just don't know.

Talk about a serious case of projection. I have not avoided anything with you, and in fact have addressed them directly. Creo's tend not to extend the same courtesy.

That's your problem, not mine.

Bingo. No-one's refuting biology either.(shrug) There are however a bunch of ignorant fundies with lots of money and political backing (note - no science backing) who like to pretend that religious apologetics is somehow relevant to science. But that's something totally different altogether.

Bingo.

If (a) God exists, it certainly ain't helping us by sticking its arm down every now and then so we can do a blood test.

And then the same yo-yo's contradict themselves by claiming "evidence" supports Goddidit.

Me, I'm quite wary of anyone who says things like:

Ahh! the typical puddle gooist defense mechanism, when you lack the faith in the goo you lack education, yet the puddle gooists themselves have only a vague, unprovable theory of lifes beginnings....{ without testable hypotheses and repeatable results all you have is personal opinion, not actual knowledge}..
Actually Bo, if you remember your lame "puddle goo" jokes are in reference to abiogenesis, NOT the Big Bang. Which was what my post was referring to.

And actually the Big Bang DOES have repeatable results. Go outside and measure the redshift of all the other galaxies. Last time we checked about 99% of them were redshifted. If all of a sudden they show 99% blueshift, then we know either one of these two things:

1 - The Big Bang is wrong.

2 - Bo effed up the experiment somehow big time.

Damn! your lack of understandable knowledge concerning science renders you incapable of an informed opinon on the subject. Ergo you are a dumbass blinded by a zealous faith in nothing.
Stop blowing up the irony meters.

You responded with something else which was TOTALLY irrelevant to the post you quoted.

You can't even understand basic English, much less more complex concepts like science.

You are quite simply WAY out of your element.

And we call that current theory the Big Bang. So now you're agreeing with it whereas in your last post you tried arguing against it. Badly.

Although there are still various possible hypotheses as to the point where the universe reaches the singularity, and not all of them *necessarily* contradict the possibility of something always existing.
bohart wrote:

Your lame "puddle" reference is about abiogenesis. Cosmologists who are more concerned with how the universe began don't tend to worry much about abiogenesis. But you can't help arguing against caricatures, can you?

So far all the evidence demonstrates is that the universe is here. Period. Whether an "intelligent agent" was necessary has no actual scientific evidence for or against either way.
bohart wrote:
3. An intelligent agent causing the universe fits with # 1, and agrees with #2 that things need a cause.
Actually it doesn't. For one thing, quantum phenomena do NOT require a cause, yet they are scientifically observed. And for another thing, you claim your "intelligent agent" did NOT have a cause because it "must" have been there for eternity. Such an entity by definition is a complete and total violation of the rule of cause and effect.
bohart wrote:

It has nothing to do with incredulity, since you are also incredulous of the concept. That's because EVERY time I ask you guys for evidence or an explanation of how it works you can't ever provide it.

So actually it has little to do with incredulity, and a whole LOT to do with the fact that you have a grand total of zero scientific evidence.

Right, alcohol was being made long before modern day science came around. Some historians credit alcohol for forming civilization.
