"Nada. Zilch. Zippo. Blah blah blah" Nor have you been able to use the scientific method to disprove the existence of God. Opinion doth not facts make.
just as your opinion that any god gods or goddesses are real makes it so.

My bad....I did not mean to dis your vagina, or you. Truly sorry.

We can thoroughly prove that modern humans were roaming Africa 200,000 years ago and 100,000 years ago, and 50,000 years ago. We can prove that humans were spread all over the earth (except Antarctica) by 15,000 years ago. We can prove the blood/genome connection with Neanderthals which pretty much opens up the connection to even earlier Homo species. simply said....we did evolve from the great ape line.

DNA proves that the human line was never down to 1 or 4 procreating pair(s). The biblical story cannot by any stretch of the imagination fit into what we now know for fact.

This is not theory....its some of those facts that goes into the 'Theory of Evolution' and makes it even stronger.

Let me know when you have real evidence.
The vast majority of creationists don't even know what scientific evidence is. That makes them either ignorant fools or liars when they try to claim there is no evidence or worse for you "real evidence". I am more than happy to teach you what evidence is, why it the particular definition of evidence was chosen, and how there is irrefutable evidence for evolution.

Most creationists are too afraid to learn and prefer to continue debating using the Ostrich Technique.

Not what I said. I said you can't use the scientific method to disprove it. Something can't not exist just because you say so. Formulate whatever opinion you want. That doesn't mean you have the right to condemn mine.

Insult me all you want. Still doesn't change the fact that you can't use the scientific method to disprove the existence of God. FYI, your rantings in the teaching evolution in high school forum have almost cured my insomnia. They put me straight to sleep.

I am not trying to use the scientific method to disprove the existence of God. That would be foolish.
It is up to the people making the positive claim to prove their case. In other words, without some sort of actual evidence your belief in the God of the Bible is no more valid than the belief of some Hindu in Rama or in a Muslims belief in Allah or someone from deepest darkest Africa's belief in Big Juju.
And I am glad to be of some service to you. Obviously the theory of evolution is above the level of your simple brain. At least you can fall asleep to it.
One more point, I do not rant. Creatards rant. I bring up points that creatards cannot deal with.

Why do creatards automatically assume that people who know and understand the theory of evolution are against God?

In the U.S. most people who believe the theory of evolution are Christians. They don't believe the nonsense parts of Christianity, but they are still Christians. Heck, I bet even Justsayin does not believe anywhere near all of the Bible.

So you cannot prove your ridiculous claims. Good night indeed.

Funny all of the scientific evidence is on our side and yet these creatards have a false sense of superiority. I guess the Dunning Kruger effect strikes hard and deep in the heart of creationism.

Look at the little narcissist pout. It'll be okay, little narcissist. Here's a bandaid for your wounded pride. Also, you might wanna go easy on the labels. Not all of us fit so neatly into your nice little boxes.

It was a serious question. It seems that you are projecting again.

I know that not all of you do fit into boxes, but those that don't are far and few between.

Why did you make the idiotic assumption that I would use the scientific method to try to disprove god. It cannot be done. You cannot use the scientific method to prove that the world and everything in it was not created 15 seconds ago.

You may or may not be a creatard. You started off very badly with your insane assumption. You do seem to be following the creatard script. Deny science, use strawman arguments. Act like a general idiot. So far you have hit three of the biggies. All you have to do for the cycle is to deny the theory of evolution and you will have labeled yourself.

Here is what I was talking about. We don't have to prove the nonexistence of Adam and Eve. That is a negative statement. All we need to do is to point out that there is no evidence, except for a story told around a fire by some camel shaggers. Not what I would call very convincing material.

So if you want to claim they exist it is logically up to you to present the evidence of their existence.

The truth is everything throughout the universe is systematically arranged to follow the plan and pattern of God. Systems were formed in the beginning and groups of things were put together for the purpose of the one and only Creator. God is truly great and his hand was at work when the heavens and the earth were formed and he has given all power to Jesus to prepare a new place.

Well, in this case, nano is correct: there was light before there were stars. The cosmic background radiation, for example, was around long before any stars appeared AND (to avoid technicalities) emitted in the visible part of the spectrum before the first stars.
Yup the aftermath of the BB after the plasma cooled and expanded to a degree that visible light was possible, about half a million years I believe is the current thinking

But nano no mates was not to know that and itÂ’s much to difficult a subject for her deliberately ignorance to comprehend. I was asking for proof no mates beliefs, however looking further into this thread it seems she refuses to provide it.
