Per http://www.biblegateway.com/quicksearch/quick...
The word "Universe" is used 4 times in the Bible.
If you check "Other Translations" here, you will find that the term "Universe", as used in the Bible, was not originally used by the MEN (yes, imperfect, fallible, mortal MEN) who actually wrote the Bible. More often, the alternate word/phrased used is "the world".
The CONCEPT of the term "Universe" has changed over time. Up until about 150 AD,(Ptolomy's time), the Universe basically ended with the planet Saturn, with indeterminate "fixed stars" scattered thereafter.
It was only until later TRANSLATIONS of the original texts included the concept of the Universe -- and the word -- as we now use it to be included in the Bible.
How do you see the 'heaven' as given in Genesis?

The Bible tells us God created all things in heaven and earth and Jesus said God is a Spirit who is in Heaven.

Isn't it amazing how often creationists are wrong.

If you want to claim that a god exists you have to prove it. It is not up to use to disprove your errant claims. Google search the null hypothesis.

We have already given all the evidence necessary to support our claims, yet you idiots never give any evidence, aside from a mouldering old book written by bronze age sheep shaggers, that support your claims.

As far as any debate goes you have lost and will always lose using your approach. That is also why whenever a court case has been brought against creationism in the last 50 years your side has lost. Your side keeps trying to repackage creationism and it keeps losing. I am sure it will lose the latest rounds too. The so called "teach the controversy" is nothing more than a thinly veiled attempt to get creationism into public schools.

I thought you were intelligent, ok I'll point it out. Human artifacts inside 500 million old coal. man made item inside billion year old rocks.
It's called proof that the scientific dating system is all wet.
All that coal and oil is what would be left behind from a world wide flood. And that coal and rocks would then contain items of a much younger world then science would lead you to believe could happen.
It is more proof of the flood.
I don't generally call people names or intimate that they are less then fully functional humans.

I suggest you take some junior college courses in archaeology and paleoanthropology.

Less painful to you, might be signing up to 'Stumble Upon' and using their archaeology or anthropology search criteria. Some amazing things on there for you to discover.

OOPARTS are fully understood, and has no connection whatever to the non-existent Noachian Flood

Yea right!
Keep the faith of your Multi myth religion.
Sorry M&M, you seem to be the one who has the faith in a multi-myth religion.

I have faith in logic and science and don't believe in magic.

<quoted text>Doesn't matter at all that you don't buy into dating. It's true and it works well. Your denial is just your way to keep the myth alive in your mind.

Hear that....the REAL world is calling you.
Now back to us.

Your science and you claim that the universes is 13.7 billion or 14 billion or 15 billion years old give or take. The exact date is not important at all.
The fact is you and your science agree on one very important item. That item is the universe had a start, A beginning.

The word universe means all matter and space and energy, not that is known but ALL matter, space & energy that would include Multi verses.

So we have a date that science and you agree that the Universe (ALL matter, Space & energy) started. Before the start of the universe there was no matter or space or energy because if there was then there would have been the universe and hence no beginning date that science and you claim was about 14 billion years ago ( give or take a few billion ). So this brings us to the same point that you laugh at Theist about. Your universe model sprang fourth from nothingness.

Nothing then poof everything.
But in your case there is nothing or no reason for this magic to have happened.

Christians have a big advantage to your beliefs we know why and how.

"our universe is part of something larger: a multiverse."
This writer does not know common definition of words used daily in science.
And you quote him. LOL
Follow the piper.
What words? Specifically explain yourself or you carry no merit. But it was imaginary that you ever did carry merit.

There is something larger, it was of merit and it wasn't what YOU thought.

No it isn't! The earth and all of mankind is the world and the great expanse of space and earth is the abode of God and the angels. When the earth was created Heaven covered it like a dome called the firmament.

If there are Multiverses they would be inside the Universe by definition.
Look up what the universe is. It's black and white. The word universe mean all
Not some, ALL matter, space,energy.
Nothing about different dimensions being excluded. That is a fact mr. tick.
Twisting words (all out lying about them) will not win you crap. Go back to your Multi Myths!
