Miracle Max from The Princess Bride (1987): Whoo-hoo-hoo, look who knows so much. It just so happens that your friend here is only MOSTLY dead. There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive. With all dead, well, with all dead there's usually only one thing you can do.

There has not been even close to a world-wide flood in many, MANY millions of years.
During the period calculated by some Christians, there were civilizations living and triving before, DURING AND AFTER your supposed flood.
There is no evidence whatsoever for a Noachian flood.
but there is evidence that the earth was covered(or flooded) with water at one time regardless of the time frame, which is an uncanny call by many cultures, including the bible.

In fact science proposes to teach a nihilistic ideology, which is basically a Buddhist concept. But yet claims not to support any type of religion.lol

It applies equally well to most religions. If you are so offended by it, than it would seem you have doubts in your own beliefs that you aren't sharing with the group. A phenomenon, not all together, unknown here.

Mike I have seen the lumps you have left behind when you were careful with people like Langoliers in the past. I would let him know where the nearest head trauma unit is located, but he is probably posting from there already.

Science itself will tell you that it's concepts are subject to change with any new theory...even the big bang theory could be replaced next week with some new discovery...science ideology is subject to change at anytime.

I don't believe that the earth has ever been completely inundated with water during its history, but maybe some of the Geologists here could provide more light on that. Certainly, this is no evidence for such a flood during the last several million years.

There is a great deal of evidence to support the idea that many of the flood stories found in different cultures have a singular origin and result as a by-product of cultural exchange. Thses along with those that may have developed independently, do not support the biblical flood. They do however, indicate that our ancestors were beset by natural phenomena and took efforts to explain these as well as use them in imaginative stories.

No there is no such evidence, unless you have something that everyone missed.

I really don't know. A knife doesn't have to be designed to cut a particular person or thing to work well on cutting many things. Any claims I would make about the cause behind the FSM would merely be my opinion. Since FSM parodies many current as well as hisotical religious beliefs may speak more to the similarity in belief systems that man has invented. It would also make sense that it would have similarities to religions the author was exposed to, which are likely to be Christian, Jewish, Islamic and a few others you would expect a student at a U.S. university to encounter on a regular basis. I can't bring myself to be all knowing like you. I don't even know what truth you believe you have been spreading.

As to your last question, like you, I can claim whatever I want, I just tend to claim what is factual as best I can. Perhaps you might try it yourself.

Well on that we can agree. It is definitely funny or I would not have written it.

Sorry to hear that you wake up at 2am to feed and then poop your pants. That has got to be rough on you the next day.
