You refuse to show evidence or give answers on many questions. I already answered that once. Not my problem you our to much of a tard to go back and find it. If you want the answer again you have to earn it by showing evidence and answering the many questions you have dodged.

That matters not, the claim is of an omnipresent creator, so you should be able to point to it.... in every direction.
Yet you cannot point to in any direction.
Show evidence they can't.

Again it must really suck for you. For we have been talking about space, time and the BBT and all you can come up with is God negatives. Wow may you someday find a cure for your hate.

That was an observation of someone else's failure.

It is up to the person being challenged to support their claim.

It is always fine to point out the failures of others to support their claims.

Slow your roll buttercup, I believe what I believe and have the ability to make a rational argument for my position.

It is you that refuses to provide a position, you have nothing and that pisses you off, we know it.

Every post.

Made by everyone ever.

Including you.

There may or may not be a God. But there is currently no way to tell due to the concept being non-falsifiable and therefore non-scientific.

In short, there is presently no way to distinguish it from BS.

Sorry if you don't like it.(shrug)

Speaking of which, what's the "creation science" definition of "kind"?

Yup, just pretend you never got spanked, repro.

You claim to be the expert on time and space. Your biggest thing is singularity! Maybe time and space already existed long before the big bang but got compressed smaller (like going from one end of the hour glass to the other. The smallness it has to cross to become into largeness again) and time was still there, just slowed. Maybe the big bang was space re-expanding again. Then there would be no singularity now would there? If you think it is not a possibility, show evidence.
There are a lot of maybe's Replay, there is no solid proof. Just look at string theory -maybe there are multiple universes - infinite universes. I'm not qualified to argue the possibilites, nor would I even attempt to do so. I CAN argue with the 6000-year-old-Earth theory, which is the creation argument that people keep avoiding, and try to spin it back to "Prove the BBT". I would not ask someone to prove that God exisits - it can't be done. But I invite you to prove some of the Biblical fables. That would be a good start.

I think it would be awsome having a tail. Especially one that could hold a beer mug - we'd be complete.

Then show the facts that the scientific theory has and the facts that they are based off of. That should be simple for you to do!
First fact - red shift. Discovered in the 1920s, evidence that the galaxies are racing away from each other (outside local clusters).

Still, not enough and the theory was not taken seriously just because of red shift. However, the BB also made a critical prediction - that there should be a remnant cosmic background microwave radiation.

When this was discovered in the 1960s, the BB was taken seriously as a theory. After all, it had made a startling prediction that turned out to be true (much as evolution's startling prediction that ape/hominid intermediates would be found was vindicated over the following decades!).

Since then a whole bunch of other more arcane evidences for the BB have been found as you will find if you look on wiki or elsewhere. Such as the current ratio of hydrogen, helium, and lithium...

In any case, this is enough to establish that the BB or something close to it (such as brane theory) is almost certainly how the universe unfolded. Just as in evolution, the quantity of independently converging evidence makes a far different alternative explanation extremely unlikely.

I've heard that some pottery in Japan has been dated to 17,000 to 18,000 Years ago.

Seems the peoples of the Pacific Rim (Japan, Korea, China) were years ahead of the Middle East
I have a vase that's dated 30,000 years old that I'll sell you.

Pay no attention to the made in Japan stamp on the bottom. We don't let facts get in the way of a good theory.
