Darn biology proving a worn out 150 year old theory wrong. I love it though, people still want to argue something with no fossil record to prove it, and when they look at the human gene compared to any other animal, they still think the burden of proof isn't on them. Darwinism must support some political beliefs of theirs.

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.
Your opinion.
You can not deny the written word of God.
All your assertions about the bible can not be completely ruled out by you or any one. There was a great flood, there was a first man and woman and many more.

Charles, I have admitted that we have no *direct* evidence that God is not real.
What we do have however is powerful and true circumstantial evidence that the whole thing is merely myth, and it is very strong evidence. It is evidence that you apparently refuse to look at or acknowledge.
We can, with scientific evidence that can be looked at and repeated, show you science that disproves the very foundational stories of your holy book.
I ask why you keep coming to this forum because I don't understand what the attraction is to you. You know you are going to get slammed by the atheist and freethinker crowd that congregates here. Almost daily you are called names. You never present any data to back up your position.
And again Bill, this is a public forum for all. Saying things you or any so called atheist and free thinkers have, can never change the reality of God. Mark my word!

1. We don't know for sure at this time.
2. ALL the applicable evidence points to us descending from the great ape line. As I've said before: archaeological, paleoanthropological, and DNA all concur independently.
The Smithsonian Institute has a really good website that answers these questions really well.

Religion has no way to debunk the evidence...it is solid and true. Every time religion has tried to debunk science it failed horribly. So I predict that religion WILL have to accept what I am saying and somehow do a workaround.
A simple answer, you don't know.
Using the phrase, " for now" , makes your idea of science to be faith based.

Lastly, science is wonderful. But science can not go beyond its limits or boundaries.
God created the universe and living things. Period.

Explain to me how space, not earth, space could be created without a god.
dust couldn't do it, it can't pop out of thin air and do all this.
So explain.
It was an extraordinary occurrence that surpasses all known human powers or natural forces and is ascribed to the divine high principles and standards and glory due to the Creator. Jesus displayed this power when he done miracles like the turning of water into wine, which became the best wine at once.

Actually we don'e have any idea what a true void would be like since it seems to be impossible in our universe.
the concept of a true void in not really that hard to grasp...but a true void being impossible in the universe seems very plausible.

In the same light... I find the claim of an effect, without a cause very unplausible...

So, Free Servant, what about all the species we know weren't created 'in the beginning?'

have there been multiple creation events? Again, it would seem your god ALMOST got it right when describing his own creation event...

Creation is a on going process. Or haven't you notice? God is continually creating and expanding the diversity of life...God abhors vacuum.

There was one beginning of life according to my understanding and those living things before all others were killed in the great flood. Noah replenished the earth with chosen species and the birds were used to reseed the earth. With God all things can be done and he arranged this and new life came to be.

Bull. You might disagree with the interpretation of the evidence but to say there is none and it's never been presented is a flat out lie. Why do you folks have to lie so much? Just for consistency?

Perfect! Speaking of evidence that has never been presented. Now how about your side produce the evidence of this.

And, evidently, he abhors the vast majority of his creations since he keeps killing them off. But then, he's noted for such behavior.

Without lies they have nothing.

I have yet to meet an honest informed creationist. Honest creationists will quickly become informed creationists and then no longer be creationists. I think part of the reason that they actively refuse to learn is that they can see the writing on the wall.

They do not want to be swallowed up by what they perceive to be an immoral philosophy. If lying and cheating will "save" them then that is what they think they have to do.

If you have sense of spirituality you would understand why we die. Get a clue, or a soul.

Which on the got two one in Star Trek IV
Can you name the episode where they got the other one?
The Enterprise Incident, where Kirk disguised himself as a Romulan when the ship was surrounded by three KR-class cruisers.

Then there was the phased cloaking device in TNG, where the Enterprise hid from a Romulan Warbird inside a small asteroid. Can't remember the name of that episode off the top of my head.

Then of course they were given one of their own by the Romulans for the Defiant on DS9.
