it is physically impossible for two genetically identical people to populate a planet...
The buybull says Eve was created from Adams rib....So basically Eve was Adams daughter or clone turned female. IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM TO POPULATE A WORLD....

Then the buybull says that god being the hatefull nasty being he was destroyed all in a flood but one family...IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE WHOLE WORLD TO BE REPOPULATED BY ONE FAMILY TO INCLUDE ALL THE RACES OF PEOPLE....

Oh and most christian buybull followers say the world is like 12,000 years old....NO WAY IMPOSSIBLE TO HAVE ALL THE RACES POPULATE WORLD IN THAT MANNER....

Charles, what are these eyewitness accounts which you keep referring to?
I can show you three witnesses who say that Goldilocks is guilty of trespassing.
Does that prove anything?

You see or witness something with your eyes, true or false?
Can a machine do that?

Let's assume the answers which you want--
yes to the first question and no to the second.
Of course, you've forgotten about surveillance cameras, but that's beside the point.

I still want to know whether or not we have enough evidence to convict Goldilocks, and if not, why we have enough evidence to believe the events in the Bible, and what the difference is.

If you want me to stop accusing you of dragging red herrings, stop dragging red herrings.

You can never rule out the existence of demons.

No, that can't be true, because it rained yesterday and Beethoven composed nine symphonies.

I thought you were arguing that British contributions to the world justified mistreatment of the Irish!
Instead, you were arguing that atrocities committed by the IRA justify mistreatment of the Irish.
Now please explain how atrocities committed by the IRA justify mistreatment of the Irish.

<quoted text> Wrong!
You or any one else can never disprove the word of God, impossible!
In the case of Genesis, there is an element of truth in the creation accounts unlike evolution.
Though, there are no concrete evidence for Adam and Eve, but one can not rule out the possibility of a first man and woman.
If you consider the Bible as the 'Word of God' then you are wrong, as we have definitely proven parts of it wrong....thereby disproving the 'Word of God'

<quoted text> And finally, Bill, the Exodus again, was/ is a story that you guys can completely disprove, you guys can not come to the final conclusions that there were no Israelite presence in the land of Egypt, there was.
So from all these premises, you guys can not conclude that the bible is completely wrong.
Don't challenge what you can not challenge or defeat.
We do not say the bible is COMPLETELY wrong Charles...just the things me and you have been arguing about are proven wrong. There may be other stuff later, but not now.

Charles, I keep wondering why you come to this forum. You absolutely know that it is full of atheists and agnostics and free-thinkers who will attack your beliefs and belittle you as a person because of your beliefs.

Do you come here thinking you can proselytize us and make believers out of us?? Or do you believe that you are subjecting your self and your faith to a 'Trial by Fire' hoping to make yourself and your beliefs stronger.

Or something else??

Your argument above makes no sense. I have told you before that there was a first man and women....just not like the Bible says. The real first man and women lived 200,000 years ago in Africa, along with Neanderthals, who were NOT humans.

The Neanderthal DNA is different than humans and their whole body structure was different in small ways.

<quoted text>Furthermore, you also talked about neanderthals!
Now tell me, those fossils or bones discovered, how did you guys knew/ know it is a bone/ fossil belonging to the neanderthals?
Radiometric dating?
Who made that? Humans? Are humans perfect? No.
Please, Buddy, science has its own limitations.
No, radiometric dating is not used to determine what species bones come from. There is a whole science dedicated to bones. These people can look at a set of bones and tell you if they were male or female, if female, whether they had birthed babies or not, and a whole bunch of further things...just from looking at the bones.

Neanderthal bones are larger (diameter) and stronger, but shorter than the average Homo-sapiens. The skull is different in may ways and the brain pan is larger and held a bigger brain than humans and of course the DNA is different....much more different than the spread of DNA that modern humans carry around.

When you question the theories, you are being a scientist, but you do not, you outright ignore the facts and data and make a blind assertion without evidence then pretend that assertion answers all the questions.

Interesting.

You, not so much.
The bible just happened to be written by men. There is no evidence of anything in that book. That's all it is just a good storybook.
