Just one of thousand of signs through out the world pointing to a world wide flood, only 4000 years ago, not billions and billions of years.
Science big cop out just throw in billion and billions of year at it and anything can happen.

<quoted text>Like I said there may be other problems with US education, but I don't focus on them here. Things like inadequate funding leading to poor teaching (just as an example) may be a valid concern but not essentially relevant to this particular thread.

I don't recall offering one, and I fully endorse your choice to have your kids taught at your school of choice be it public or private, or homeschool them.

01Justsayin wrote, "At the same time, it baffles me how your logical, analytical brain can so easily dismiss things which you cannot prove or disprove using the scientific method as being altogether non-existent."

I've never claimed them to be non-existent, only unsupported by evidence.

There's no evidence of aliens either, but it's a big universe. So I don't claim there's no aliens just because we have no evidence. Especially since we've hardly explored past the head of a pin, comparatively speaking.

01Justsayin wrote, "There is no logic in that."

It is not illogical to dismiss claims with no evidence.

01Justsayin wrote, "No matter. You are entitled to your own opinion. Just don't expect me to share your narrow-minded viewpoint. "

Not sure if you're misreading me or reading what you want.

I am perfectly open to the possibility that maybe there is some kind of intelligent entity that is somehow responsible for our universe.

However I am also perfectly open to the possibility that maybe there isn't.

I'm not sure how that can be considered close-minded.
Not exactly the definition of atheism.

like MOST people who say they are "spiritual" but not religious, or believe in god but don't belong to any religion, she just took a religious cult's beliefs and melded them a tad bit.

According to Dictionary.com :
1. the doctrine or belief that there is no God.
2. disbelief in the existence of a supreme being or beings.

While I respect his extremely honest opinion, it does not correspond with the definition of a typical atheist. A fact I found to be...interesting.

When did I mention that I take the bible literally? I do respect the literature much like the Egyptian myth or the Buddhist teachings or the Taoist philosophy.
