May I suggest getting out more? I would if I wasn't stuck here in the office. Get out and marvel at God's beautiful, magnificent creation. It beats mankind's destructive, progressiveness.
I get out plenty. Probably more than you do in Central PA (where I used to live).

Yes, yes....the "Bosphorus Strait Flood" theory.

Old news, but quite interesting.

Still no evidence for either a WORLD-WIDE flood, nor of Noah, etc.

There's no chance anyway. It's either slavery or torture for eternity. Plus no-one has free will in the face of an all-knowing being so you're really wasting your time even telling us. But at least you know it's not your fault because you're just doing what God already knew you were gonna do.
It's an unchangeable script. Nowt you can do about it.
God's word does not change. 1 Pet 1 :23-25, James 1:17 and there are other passages which back these up.

Links please.

And for oceanic life carbon dating is not reliable. I don't know how reliable dating of shellfish from the Black Sea would be. If the water comes in contact with a fair amount of limestone then the dates given by carbon dating would very probably be higher than they actually are. When doing radiometirc dating you must be aware of possible contamination.

Actually there are woody. Millions and millions of faithful followers as compared to your lousy 2% of atheists. Even agnostics are less clueless than you. At least they acknowledge there is something more to this existance than just the physical world.

Based on your so-called information. Deny it just like those "fundies" you complain about who refute all information regarding evolution. Pure hypocrisy. After all, they are both theories.

Google Robert Ballard interview. Interesting, do you question the finding of the archeologists that support what you want to believe with this same criteria?

Word games, yes yes.
The point the other poster was making in the first place that what YOU call Christianity, the form it took, was largely the design of Paul, not of the original Jesus. There may have been a Jesus who spouted Buddha and Socratic style platitudes and got into some trouble for that, but as for the miracles and resurrection etc... these stories were written long after the purported facts, and are unreliable and inconsistent, so just about everything you THINK you know about Jesus through the lens of this concoction called Christianity is questionable.
You have NO evidence. NO reliable witness accounts. Just the structure created most of all by Paul and a few others, decades later.
Only dead fish(es) go with the flow. You are indeed a liar.

He does not claim a global flood in any interview. He knows it was a local flood.
