I'll bet that Hindu living next to you doesn't believe you're god is real...just like you don't believe his god is real.

How about Sikh's, do you think his gods are real???

I don't worship the Bible, dude. I worship God. Can you grasp that very simple concept?
Obvious fallacies of the Bible? How about the Noah's Ark myth? That was busted long before Darwin came along.

the facts are clear that the words of the bible attempt to create a god that the bible itself disproves. what part of this are you not clear on?
Words of others are hearsay no matter how you want to look at it. That is a fact.

OMG dude. You've never showed evidence, all you've done is state it.
OMG?!? are you a teenager from the last decade?

yes, i have shown proof. how can the infallible god the bible says is the god of your cult make mistakes like the ones i have pointed out with verifiable facts? it cannot, hence the god your cult attempted to create is proven false.

the Earth was not formed and populated with plants before the sun was formed. we know this for a fact. the Noachian flood never happened, we know this for a fact. the story of jesus is just a rehash of previous religious cult myths. the real jesus was just a rabble rouser that was just like the occupy wall street people of today. his whole story was embellished to support the political agenda of those who used him as a political soundbyte.

your entire belief system is based on proven lies. you are in a cult.

what part of that did you not understand? i can explain it to you again if you need me to...
You've given no facts. No evidence. No links. No quotes.

Nothing.

All you do is repeat yourself, saying "the bible disproves god", et al.

If you have proof, offer it up.

Actually I have. I have done so by supporting my claims with sources, something that your side rarely if ever does. I show that I am educated by debating in an educated manor. RR makes claims but never supports them, even when he is making claims about his own superstitious beliefs.
Yep name calling and posting links shows one is educated. Even a third grader can do that. LOL

The estimate of how much water is in the crust is a 'best guess' and not accurate by actual evidence. Here's some old info you seem to have missed. Your welcome :)

Inner Earth May Hold More Water Than the Seas
By Ben Harder
for National Geographic News
March 7, 2002
Molten rocks deep in the earths interior may be surprisingly wet, Japanese researchers say. From lab experiments, they have concluded there may be more H2O deep underground than in all oceans, lakes, and rivers combined.
The scientists first heated "mineral cocktails" to a white-hot 1600 degrees Celsius (2900 degrees Fahrenheit) and squeezed them until the pressure reached more than three million pounds per square inch (200,000 kilograms per square centimeter). Then they cooked the samples for an hour.
The experiments replicated the environment and conditions deep in the Earth.
Based on what they witnessed in their lab, the researchers concluded that more water probably exists deep within the Earth than is present on Earth's surface—as much as five times more.
"Our results suggest that the lower mantle can potentially store considerable amounts of water," said Motohiko Murakami of the Tokyo Institute of Technology, where the experiments were conducted.
"The presence of water in the crystal structure of [deep-Earth] minerals would be expected to soften the minerals and change their flow behavior," he added. That, in turn, could affect how the innards of the planet mix and shift over time, and could indirectly affect conditions and forces near the surface, such as plate tectonics.

You can babble all you want. I still want the facts and evidence that life exists other than here on earth.
the fact that there is life here on earth is proof that life exists in the universe. now we are just looking for more life. what part of this logic do you not get?

And I already told you, you do not get any more Bible verses until you support your claim that Christians do not have to follow the laws of the OT. I gave you a verse, you have failed to support any of your claims.

Last, your actions speak louder than your words. You worship the Bible and not God.

Obviously you don't even read your own posts.

YOU wrote it.

And where have I bashed the Bible? Pointing out that the Bible is full of errors is not bashing it.
But you haven't done that. Not that I've seen. You, like your athitard pal, just keep repeating yourselves that you've done it.

DO IT.

Point out some "biblical errors" so I can show you why you're wrong.

A creationists could easily say "Like all science, yours if clearly full of mistakes, logical errors, failed theories, and self contradictions.
The only difference is science is still around to correct itself, no one is around to correct the bible.
Oh? God is dead then?

No. You supplied the verse you thought supported your claim. I showed you that you're wrong. Why does that bother you?

The only fact you have shown is you believe hearsay of man and claim it to be facts. You have not shown one thing God himself wrote or said.

As I said. Show me facts, proof or evidence life exists somewhere besides here on earth. And again I say, Oh that's right you can't.

It is all speculation of maybe and could be.

"Without evidence of the existence of something the logical belief is that it does not exist." Is that why we are still looking for ET, because after years and years of studies and tests, years and years of space exploration, with no evidence what so ever, we still believe ET is still out there somewhere? LOL
