whatever...dude...but I must say your comic book idea of god is quite amusing at times.
LOL, talk about having a comic book belief in God. Let's see Comic Book type beliefs:

Adam and Eve, check.

Noah and his Ark, check.

Jonah and the big bad fish, check.

Yup. You fail.

Creatards don't get scientific evidence from me until they show that they understand what scientific evidence is. I am happy to give lessons on what qualifies as scientific evidence.

Sorry...just because you fail to perceive the sublimity of the workings of God, is a failure on your part not mine.

No, creation is not proven....and it never will be because it didn't happen that way. We know this for a fact.

Nope, not good enough. Most creationists don't understand scientific evidence. If they did very few of them would still be creationists.

So do you care to learn what scientific evidence is and why it is defined the way it is or don't you?

There was no 'Garden of Eden' we know this because we know there was never an Adam and Eve as written in the Bible. Mankind probably evolved in the Ethiopian area of Africa. By the way all humankind originally came from Africa, and almost all non-Afican's today carry a small percentage of Neanderthal genes/blood.

Typical creatard response. You are unable to give any evidence therefore you try to blame your target.

I am willing to give evidence, once you learn what evidence is. I have not seen anyone too anxious to learn what constitutes evidence.

<quoted text>No, God did not say that. At best you are getting that from a book of fairy tales written by people who had to be told not to have carnal relations with sheep. And you dodged my question:

Does ice float in your world?
"How does the ice melt on a lake? You will see it there one day and the next it will be gone. What happens to it?

All ice floats on a lake's surface until it is melted. Although it sometimes floats low in the water, it does not sink to the bottom, as some mistakenly believe.

Water is heaviest at 39 degrees, lighter at higher or lower temperatures. Falling air temperatures in autumn and lower sun angles, in conjunction with wind and wave action, result in the lowering of lake temperatures. Because the cooler water is heavier, it will sink, displacing and forcing warmer water to the surface. This continues until the entire lake reaches a temperature of about 39 degrees.

Following this, surface temperatures will fall below 39 degrees and the cooler and lighter water will remain at the surface. As the surface water cools further, it will eventually change into ice.

Because the ice is colder and less dense than the water below it, it floats. In the spring, the reverse occurs. Rising air temperature and higher sun angles cause melting to begin on top of the ice layer.

If there are no cracks or fissures, the melting water will accumulate on top of the ice. If this happens over an entire lake (which is unlikely) or over parts of the lake, one might get the impression that the ice is sinking. But it isn't.

Further warming will cause the ice to become rotted or honeycombed, with water and air filling the void. The dark color of ice in late winter is because of this honeycombing. As the honeycombing process continues, the ice mass floats lower and lower in the water until it is completely melted, but it never sinks to the bottom."

Actually you're both wrong. Nothing can be proven (scientifically speaking) as it can never be demonstrated to be 100% accurate. If the concept is scientific, there is ALWAYS the possibility, now matter how small, that it MIGHT be falsified later on as new evidence is discovered. This is what separates science from dogma.
So far though evolution has been demonstrated scientifically. Creationism has not.
Hello dude, how are you today.

I'm aware of the 'theory' concept as used in science, but am pushing what we so-far 'KNOW' for sure, as opposed to the creation concept of how we come to be here on earth, and when we 'got' here.

We know for a fact that the concept that the universe and earth are only 6,000+- years old is totally and absolutely wrong. Is that your understanding?

We also know,pretty strongly, that humans (Homo-sapiens) have roamed the planet for at least 200,000+- years. Do you understand this to be true??

Also thanks to archaeology, paleoanthropology, and DNA, we know that we carry Neanderthal genes/blood. Do you understand this to be true?

I am simply building on what we are pretty darn sure is right in the sciences connected to this problem. All of these disparate facts from science come together to disprove the creationists fallacies.

I know there is a possibility, however slim, that what we think we know is wrong.....do you believe this evidence I'm using here, that's been around now for decades, IS wrong??

Many years after birth, sure. Then they died during the flood. Unless, as I said, the Ark was a Galaxy class starship. So far you have not actually confirmed or denied that. Nor postulated a solution for the few problems with the global flood scenario that I pointed out.
