<quoted text>You can believe whatever you want. You can believe that blue is made up of yellow and lime polka dots. You would of course be demonstrably wrong.

And you are demonstrably wrong in this belief too.

When someone says that they believe something a person with a skeptical mind asks them why they believe what they believe. Until you show some evidence a simple "I don't believe you" upsets your case. That is why the beliefs of scientists are based upon evidence. We have evidence of when man lived, we have evidence of where man lived. The species overlap at their times of appearances and disappearances generally. There are a few overlapping species. But most follow one line. This is shown by dating the various fossils by various means.

So what evidence do you have?

Interbred, probably, up to 4% of your DNA is Neanderthal
I am aware of the neanderthal dna
Its a fascinating subject do elaborate on your cro-magnon man theory

<quoted text>Christians, Muslims, and Jews do not all worship the same God but they think they do. The god of Jesus and Christianity is Satan, and Muslims are totally confused. They think they serve the living God but also observe the supposed validity of the Christian god and NT. Muslims hate the Jews who worship the one true God, the living God. This God is not Jewish, they have added to the scriptures, the word of God, and have missed the mark.
christians also worship your abrahamic god, as do muslims...

your false cult worships the same false idol as they do...

Before you can claim that "God does thus" or "God does so", you must first demonstrate the existence of God.
My point is that how could John, a fisherman, exiled on an island 20 centuries ago come up with the concept of the centralised debit card system that can cover everyone on earth based on numbers?

The eyes, language convention and brain all functioning perfectly through millions of optic nerves to see this text, rods and cones to discern colour and depth perception are pretty good proof of God and the miracle of life. You folks look at life and think what an amazing number of accidents and mindless chances made all this. We look at life and say "what an amazing God we serve and I am so thankful I can live here through His goodness!" To search out His creation is a gift. It has been polluted after sin. We live in a mix of past judgement and original creation.

human eyes are actually rather pathetic by comparison in the real world.

why did your proven mythical god give his favorite species foruth rate eyes?

when you look at yoru cult with an objective eye and logic, it falls apart, as do all your arguments...

That is your excuse for ignorance? That only substantiates the fact that the majority of people are below average intelligence, Charlie.
English originated on the island of England. That was then. Now a huge number of English speaking Christians are only able to find England on a world map with Google a lot of luck. Hell, half of those wouldn't even be able to find it on a map of the British Isles.

Unfortunately, atheism is become the state religion in America. Just sit in any high school biology classroom and try to engage in an honest debate about evolution. My daughter was openly ridiculed and yelled at for questioning that man evolved from apes. This is not "science"... It is indoctrination. Public education has become a farce.
Maybe the argument she presented was as stupid, factless and nonsensical as yours. If so, opposition was justified. Heck, if she was raising a religious argument in a science class, then opposition was justified.

No, those 160,000 year old skulls do not predate Neanderthal Man. Neanderthals date back at least as far back as Homo sapiens and possible before.

Of course there are gaps in the fossil record. So what? Gaps are to be expected. We have plenty of our ancestors and they all fit in the evolutionary paradigm. Creationists cannot deal with the fossil record. They have no explanation for it at all.

He didn't. You are reinterpreting the Bible in light of today's facts. That is not the way prophecy is supposed to work.
