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.

Now you lie a lot. Great, so you can tell no truth at all.

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.

There has never been a time when the whole earth was completely covered by water in at least the past 20,000,000 years....possibly as far back as 2.5 billion years.

How have you been doing Word? I ran into Chilli J on another forum we occassionally cross paths in, but other than that, I have left the debate here and there to him, you and the others of those better than myself to carry on. I have missed the exchange of ideas and the practice in arguing though. And the humor.
Glad you're back.

I wonder how they would know this if no human existed yet? No pun intended, just a thought.

Sure, but for how long? There is no guaranteed accuracy in this observation.

Accuracy within 100 years in most cases.
