You can ignore it if you choose but there is scientific evidence against a global flood.
By now, you should have a working understanding of the logic of fundie faith.
1) A recent and MASSIVE catastrophic global event that didn't happen wouldn't even leave faint regional traces that it didn't happen, therefore the Noachian Flud was real.
On the other hand,
2) a recent MASSIVE catastrophic global event that DID happen wouldn't even leave faint regional traces that it DID happen, therefore the Noachian Flud was real.
This is conclusive and MASSIVE evidence that science is a religion, God created chimpanzees from the rib of a banana and Obama was born in Kenya.

Of course. It's all clear to me now.

Out searching for missing links and I found where science says they have found a new one.

Scientists come face to face with evolution's missing link

I keep telling you, but you don't seem to comprehend. Science doesn't know it all at once....baby steps man, baby steps

And just because we don't know right now, that doesn't mean we won't know next week or next year, etc. and it's definitely not a space you try and push YOUR God into because we will inevitably burn you.
Look you saying you don't know how is the correct response.

Science doesn't share that with you.
They make claims of all the laws of physic breaking down ( turning off )
So then they can make the claim of impossibilities. That is invoking there faith over science while calling it science. That is wrong!

<quoted text>I see you have in no way attempted to counter my discussion but simply stamped your foot and spouted irrelevant lies. Tell me, you wouldn’t happen to be a funnymentalist would you?

You know, I really feel for those guys, it must be terribly difficult living by the ignorance of such faith in today’s world of knowledge.

Why be sorry? Just because the known laws of physics break down at a particular point is no excuse to guess and claim victory. Because that is all you are doing, putting your faith in the guesswork of a bunch of stoned mystics, goat herders and escaped slaves who lived in the bronze age. You are betting your faith on the guess that some how those guys living more than 4000 years ago knew more about the universe than modern science does. Note, this was a universe that was seen as pinned to the dome of the sky that revolved around the earth. You are betting your faith on a book that is at best a poor translation of the original which has then been edited at whim and compiled and recompiled, not from original material but what best suits the belief a particular scribe, monk, church or monarch of the day. The history of the babble, both OT and NT is really too colourful to have spawned so much belief. This of course makes the three abrahamic religions a lie from start to finish.

You may not have the ability to comprehend science but again that is no excuse to make up lies for your god. Science is not invoking anything, there are rules ‘that you keep harping on about’ to prevent your lying claims, they contradict your lies rather then strengthen your stance. Unlike godbots and funnymentalist, science freely admits that not all answers are unknowable. This is where your argument with science starts, because you claim by special pleading (magic) to know the answers that are unknowable. Without such a claim your belief is as worthless to you as it is to anyone else. You attempt to grab the moral high ground by lying about what you know and what you guess and what science is and what you want science to be.(P.S. look up the meaning of the word moral)

However the laws of mathematics do not break down, The work of Dr Param Singh et al allows before the event to be modelled if not in fact then in figures. OK, you can’t understand that either and it is no doubt way beyond you so perhaps it foot stomping time again. But guess what? No god involved there either.

The work of Dr Mersini-Houghton, which uses the above mentioned mathematics and the factual and evidential properties known of the universe is, I believe, the best model yet for what happened before the big bang. Not only does it make sense but it accounts for all of the anomalies measured and observed and there is no guesswork involved.

Or then again, you build a religion out of a bronze age guess, it’s your life to believe what you want, the point being that belief is not fact
I can't help but be sorry for you.

You blindly follow people who make claims of impossible events by playing the "laws of physics break down here" card. You must know that the laws of physics are etched in stone and don't just disappear every time scientist need to explain the impossible.

One thing explains the impossible.

"before the Big Bang"
Umm no such thing in science, time started with the Big Bang or some say. Mili second after the BB. So there can be no before the BB. Polly will tell you all about that.

"particular scribe, monk, church or monarch of the day"

Monk. I love that show.

I made a comment the other day for everyone to drop all the BS and show proof/evidence for what everyone claims from legitimate sites but I was hit with negative judgits. I think both sides lack in evidence and just have words, faith in what they believe and what they have been fed to back up what they say.
