Of course I can.
The following are Biblical myths:
Creation 6,000+- years ago
Adam and Eve....this has repercussions for Jesus
Noah's flood
The Tower of Babel
Moses writing the Pentateuch
Moses
The Exodus, and all the attendant magik or 'miracles'
Abraham
Lot
Known Writers of the Gospel
This is fun. And it's from "AnswersinGenesis", even. Enjoy.

Hehehe.
They HATE this.

Sorry Genesis never talks about skin color
Despite this they're mostly painted white anyway. Not that it matters though, as it's still racist no matter which you deem "perfect".

Incorrect. Time was created by God outside (because it didn't exist yet) our universe. God is not held to the law of Physics that he creates for the universe.
Yeah, that's what I said - you're a hypocrite.(shrug)

Its probably correct. Since plants and animals share a eukaryote ancestor and that ancestor probably had chloroplasts and could photosynthesise then at least technically animals would have evolved from plants! But its not like a daffodil suddenly sprouted a mouth and legs.
I recognize your point, but it isn't his sequence of events that I doubt, but the number of steps missing that is implied in his version of the sequence. As you say, it wasn't one leap from daffodil to fish, or amphibian or even insect. I admit though that my post was lacking in detail along the lines you mention.

In physics, spacetime (also space–time, space time or space–time continuum) is any mathematical model that combines space and time into a single continuum.Spacetime is usually interpreted with space as existing in three dimensions and time playing the role of a fourth dimension that is of a different sort from the spatial dimensions.

Indeed, still an integral characteristic of spacetime.

You think Jupiter is habitable?
Barring an unnoticed typo, that is the complete opposite of what I said.

A gas planet with a toxic atmosphere. What do you think does or could inhabit it?
Currently there's no evidence anything does, and it would be unlikely. Although it, or other planets like it could potentially be habitable for certain forms of extremophiles.

You don't think Jupiter is in outer space? Well then you must not be sane,

Yes, it's in space, where as you described it AS space. Typo on your part, I'm sure.

That's Tater Salad to you bub.
"The evidence of marine animals that has been found could only be created by immense, recent, oceanic tidal waves. If the floods across North America were caused by ice-domed lakes, they would have washed away all evidence of these whale bones and other marine materials; none of the floods would reach Mexico or the Bahamas."
This is bad, it takes none of the actual flood events into account.
The fountains of the deep erupting.
The raising up the land and lowering the ocean floors.
We have taken that into account. The reason there is no evidence for the flood is either because it never happened or Goddidit with magic. Evidence is irrelevant to the latter position.

Which is yours.

There is no evidence of evolution ..between species ..
Man is man..always was man ..created by God as man ..
Plenty of evidence:

That's great, but where did the original fish come from? God didn't put them there and neither did man. It's okay to say you don't know. Scientists do that all the time.
Land changes, gets flooded, and leaves aquatic animals stranded in lakes and ponds. Barring recent artificial introduction this is why you'll only get certain animals in certain places.

Your 3 BIG Myths:
1) the Big Bang when nothing exploded
and created everything.
2) rain falling on rocks and settling in a mud puddle and spontaneous self generating life sprang forth.
3) plants evolving into plant eating animals.
And when I snap my fingers you will wake up and believe these 3 myths as if they were fact.
"SNAP"
Wow.

You managed to characterise all three incorrectly.
