KJV, you lose by going to a dictionary when debating scientific terms.

That is the mark of a pure loser.

I will find some article that back up my claims.

Meanwhile let's seem some real Biblical scholars that claim that Jesus died on a Wednesday afternoon and arose early Saturday evening.
Oh yea I forgot science doesn't like being lock down to facts.

Probably still to difficult for him. As I said not all scientists think that the universe had to start at the Big Bang. Brane theory, which is part of string theory, states that it the Big Bang could have been the product of two Membranes colliding. Don't ask me, I don't know. All I do know is that the Big Bang may not be the start of everything. It was the start of our universe as we know it.

Right now string theory and all of its derivatives are not proper theories. At best they are untested hypotheses. Of course many scientific ideas when they first appeared were untested hypotheses. Even Galileo's work with gravity was an untested hypothesis until he ran his first experiments.
Tell me what you believe.

Does the Universe (the word universe as known to the English speaking world)
have an age? You know a beginning?
Or do you believe it was alway there?

"Friday afternoon"
Ooops look like you've not done your research.
"Matthew 12:40 and discover the true story. Jesus said, "For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth." Now turn to John 11:9 and read this rhetorical question by Jesus, "Are there not twelve hours of daylight?" By putting these two verses together we see Jesus establishes he would spend in the heart of the earth 36 hours (3x12) for day and 36 hours (3x12) for night. Therefore, we know the three days and three nights he spoke of in Matthew 12 would have to equal 72 hours. In John 19:31 we read, "Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath…"
Continued.....
No, just no.

The prophesy says 3 days and 3 three nights.

No amount of playing will change the fact that 3 days and 3 nights is 72 hours, not 36 hours.

So wrong. Try again.

I'm not talking about the BB.
I'm talking about the start of the universe. I couldn't care less if the BB doesn't try and explain the very beginning of the universe. So lets start over, how old is the universe? Or did it always exist?

What is wrong with me saying that as far as we can tell the Big Bang was the start of the universe?

That is precise enough and allows for the fact that we cannot be one hundred percent sure when everything began. Perhaps in the future we will know more, but it is rank foolishness to say that the Big Bang was the ultimate start of the universe. True scientists will always admit that something may have happened before it.

No, I CAN read, that is the problem. I even quoted the prophesy, I don't remember if I linked it. He clearly states "3 days AND 3 nights" (emphasis mine). That is 72 hours. Would you like to try again?

And of course this is only one of many failed prophesies in the Bible.

The universe is at least 13.55 billion years old. Right now that is all we can say for sure, right now.

Because Satan couldn't care less if you believe in UFO's. it's God that he needs to stop people from believing in so this is where his puppets are at work.
Your God is made up just like all the others...and just like Satan.

God you guys are gullible.

UFO's are not a almost daily concern or such a part of life to many people.

I don't give a crap if some nut thinks he's been abducted.

I DO give a crap if some religious nuts try to replace science with religion in our public schools.

Mark, where are your links that support these claims?

Creationists have been shown to be liars many many times in the past. For that reason any claims must be supported by links.

And quoting an ignorant or biased archaeologist really does not support your case too much.

The story of humans goes back many hundreds of thousands of years and is spread over the whole earth. We did not come from two progenitors 6000+- years ago. Our footprints, handprints, tools, habitats, art, and handiwork have been found all over the globe going back a hundred thousand, two hundred thousand, and many more years.
We humans have a history that is told in archaeological artifacts and human bones and pottery and stunning artwork on cave walls. We find finely crafted spearheads in animals that have not walked the earth for over 10,000 years, we find Homo sapiens skeletons superimposed with Neanderthal bones in Israeli caves from 50,000 years ago, we find 10,000 year old graveyards in the middle of the Sahara desert…relics from a time when the Sahara was green and home to ancient animals and human societies.

The references are there. Look up the Dome, the entire book of Issiah with all those messianic prophesies surviving complete since Christ's time. Real people doing their life-work that upsets the secular bias. As long as students in this field never see their work all is fine for your side. I have heard all this stuff from the new school, its baseless. Too bad for them, the Knesset started a big Bible study this year!

I am not doing your homework for you.

When I make a claim about evolution I am more than happy to offer links. You are the one making a positive claim. With no evidence you claims can be dismissed with a wave of the hand.

Theists like you live and dream words written long ago, your life has no meaning for you except in these ancient texts. And you look back, to find these words to keep going into the future.

Atheists live the life now and dream the dream that the future will answer those questions,
us loving life and willing that it will continue.
Will find the way by looking forward.

KJV, the verse did not say that this "special Sabbath Day" occurred on a Wednesday. Where is the evidence that it occurred on a Wednesday. Not only that but the other Gospels don't even make the same claim.

And you forgot your links.

In other words, wrong try again.

No links to support your claims and you are automatically wrong.
