What makes you think that any god ever parted the Sea of Reeds?

There is no record of that happening.

Me neither. Luckily it hasn't happened yet.

No, it was a local event. If we give benefit of the doubt then it was a large flood caused by the melting ice caps at the end of the last ice age. So large and destructive to any who witnessed it they assumed it was worldwide. Then they wrote stories about it.
<quoted text>
No we cannot. Since humans had already populated the Earth by that point, leaving many WELL outside the flood zone. Genetics, archaeology, geology and physics all contradict your assertion. If the flood was global then not even Noah survived.
Now you will say that the invisible magic Jew wizard is not restricted by evidence and can get around any and all problems with magic. And that may be. But that prevents you from claiming that your BS is scientific.
I meant the legend of the flood was worldwide. I am not even sure if the flood was local or global, there are people here that have raised some interesting questions but I still believe it happened.

You claim your god is gonna come back and murder anybody who disagrees with your insane made up BS. It's just not called murder if God duz it. Because your god is a deranged delusional lunatic. You're not exactly much better.
My God is the author of life and death and will only kill the wicked. And my God is not coming back, how many times do I have to tell you I'm not a Christian? Murder is defined as the intentional taking of an innocent life. The wicked are guilty. Part of Gods agenda is to cut off the wicked who will not repent. If you haven't sinned against God personally, you're going to get a second chance but you need to repent. Remorse, confession, restitution and most importantly, change.

Uh.....no.

The earth is 4.5 Billion years old.

The Universe is approximately 13.798 Billion years old.

Bishop Ussher was incorrect.

Wrong, almost all civilizations that live on navigable waterways have a flood myth. That does not mean that your flood myth is world wide. In fact if you read them many of the flood myths have significant differences.

Here is an important question you need to ask yoursefl:

Why do we have physical evidence of smaller local floods and no evidence at all of a much larger flood, whether global or not?

Maybe something was lost in the original biblical script when the Christians stole it from the Hebrews. You know - fat fingering a couple zeros (aka: milliniums). Afterall, the Bible puts man and dinosaurs in the same time period - kinda' like the Flintstones.

Maybe we're thinking too new or recent?

She doesn't trust evidence, or even facts and proof. She has warmed pews for so long that it has destroyed her brain. We need to stop people like her from breeding or evolution stops right here and now.

The bible says NOTHING about dinasaurs. Also, it makes it clear that the Earth and the animals existed before God made men and it doesn't give the stretch of time between their creations. The Bible was accurate in saying that those things existed before man. The Bible is scientifically AND historically accurate.

Do you think that the Earth is more like a circle than a ball?
