What I posted came from an atheist web page so I am sorry you don't agree with it. But as you pointed out earlier you're not a atheist but rather a theist.
If it is not relevant, then why did you post it as if it was?
Don't you read and think before posting?

My former post correction: they-day.

Adam was created with a full knowledge of language including the written word.
There was no need to evolve to a knowledge of language.
Literalism, instead of some linguistic theory, but soit:
Where do we read that adam can write?
And given the old magic believe - in this myth that was known and told in various forms in the Ancient Near East- expressed as naming is bringing to life, why do you assume language was of no consequence?

Well given the translation and filled in interpretation they miss all the play on words and various meanings anyway.
Knowledge of language and writing mattered a great deal, and was something to take pride in.
Everywhere in the axis-years (I put that from 800BC-300 BC).
And having your own law and written dialect, not only connected to your own god but also the land and people, proved to others your souvereignity and claim on the land.

The bible has always been consistence...but how many times has science mis-lead the populace down through the ages...?
At core both have traditions.
But we all know that the translations are not the original and that the phiosophy has become unrecognizable.

But what was your point.
We need outsiders otherwise nothing could have happened.
Like meteors bringing amino-acids (even ones that are not natural here). I asked you why a composed mudball like earth would not have been capable of generating it's own amiono-acids and biochemistry suitable to it's gravity and place in the daisyflower zone. I can't recall ever receiving a reply/retort.

Claiming the fossil record as proof of evolution is a bit like claiming missing evidence is as good as real evidence.
I haven't read any book irttsat(in relation to the subject at hand) where it does not state SUPPORTS.
Supporting evidence should ring a bell.

I did not say it was not relevant. I said it came from an atheist web page that all.
Even atheist can be correct some times.

I can understand the mistake, most atheist stuff is not relevant.

No, it isn't. Any assertion made without evidence can be dismissed without evidence. Since there is an absence of evidence, your claims about your god are dismissed, and any further assertions made by you are delusion.

No take my word for it or research it.

In case you thought you were on another planet I'll remind you this is earth and I'm not bound to you.
I stated a fact you don't believe me I posted some links you don't think are good enough so I say go prove me wrong. More then fare on this planet.

Why do you assume God created a man who could talk to God who could name all animals who could talk to Eve and yet you believe he needed thousands of years to learn how to write.

Thats ridicules.

Yes, I do believe it was an idiotic creatard claim. What other idiot creatard could it have been? There is no reason someone who believed the theory of evolution would claim that a myth in the Bible is true.

Yes, and I told you how they did not back up your claim.

You did not state a fact, you stated a belief. You tried to change your statement after the fact, or in other words you lied.

You never made your first point so you proved yourself wrong. The burden of proof is always on the person making the positive claim. That was you.
