It made predictions not knowing how advanced we would become.

ah but you cannot prove there were more diseases back then. you are just basing that off the fact that they had little knowledge of modern technology.

So the Old Testament is correct but the translations aren't. But you don't HAVE the original Bible but you still know it's correct even though you don't have it, don't know what it says, couldn't even read it even if you did have it, and only have translations which are wrong and contradictory to scientific reality.
Oh, and not every religion has elements of the Bible, unless you refer to the extremely generic concept of invisible deities. In which case you could say that all religions have elements of the Aztec pantheon.
It's called learning 2 languages.
many of them talk about a flood or something like that but no I didn't mean the deities because we only have one while mostly all of the others have more than one.

It is amusing to watch the evolutionists and science dance when they say the great flood never happened. Then someone says then why are there fossils of marine animals and plants found high on the peaks of the mountains. Well they debunk that by saying that the mountains formed over millions of years protruding up out of the earth as the plates shift, or lava pushing up from below, or huge blocks of rock that have slid along a fault and have risen all taking fossils up with them. But yet when you say “but science says” mountains were formed when the earth’s surface began to cool and harden. They then say yes “they did” but over time those mountains were worn away by the action of wind, rain, frost and other such natural forces. So the ones we have now are newer and still growing. LMAO they have no clue of anything.

The fossils on top of mountains does not match what the various flood geologies would predict.

Really, are you that ignorant?

replaytime, you have no clue what "science says"

Your terrible ignorance is your own worst enemy.

Instead of making foolish assumptions you should be educating yourself a bit more.

I suggest you educate yourself more and quit sucking the science lollypop and only getting spoon fed theories. OH yes we know you have evidence to support that evidence because someone has said the theory has to be true, I did the same study and got the same conclusion. You have no facts. If you based a criminal case on what science sees as evidence no one would ever be found guilty because scientific evidence of evolution is not based on facts.

Oh why you are at it why don't you explain this one. "Science says that "one" life formation that came from non-life is where we ALL came from and amazingly it evolved into an estimated 10 million different spieces of plants, animals, fungi, bacteria ect ect. Isn't that as far fetched as God. I mean "one" life formed from non-living matter evolved into around 10million (probably more) different species! JUST AMAZING!!!!!

I never said that the old testament was wrong It's all correct. what he said was since we don't have the original bible we cannot be sure that what the new ones say is correct.
and maybe if he appeared in modern times. but unfortunately they didn't have modern technology back then so yeah. and also why do you think every religion world wide has a some elements from the bible in them? because the bible is real.
The OT is remarkably well preserved and it will all be literally fulfilled. The only discrepancies come from the different versions. Every time a Christian espouses a different theology, they have to rewrite the bible to conform to their understanding. The OKJV is the most accurate English translation. The NT is full of contradictions and was written hundreds of years after the fact. This is probably because they were waiting for Jesus' prophecy to be fulfilled and it never was.

Why is it so amazing to you? Probably because you know nothing about the theory of evolution or any of the possible abiogenesis hypothesis.

Yes, it's beautiful, wonderful, even fantastic, but "amazing" it is not, not really. It's actually quite simple. So simple one formula can explain it:

n + 1 = u

Where n is the previous day's u.

That's it, for evolution. For abiogenesis it's something similar.
