Uhm no it is you that seem to keep skipping over the fact that the only life we know of, have seen, have tested, have observed, have studied is ONLY here on earth.
At only .0000000000000000001% of the universe you have a long way to go to prove other life and to disprove God huh. LOL
Until you show facts and/or evidence to back your claims this is all you will get from me for you show you are empty when it comes to facts and evidence on what you talk about and call facts.

According to you, it means nothing.

I did say the earth has the potential to globally flood itself. I never specified the when. I did list possibilities under theoretical situations. Please understand that difference.
Have you read any theories for the earth being covered in water after it's first long rain after the age of volcanism that let lose their gasses that became the first clouds? Scientists guess for millions of years the earth was covered in h20 where bacteria first took birth. As plate tectonics began to happen forcing what would become the first mountainous ranges on earth to appear above this water and form land while the evolution of sea life took place, do you know we have no present evidence of this global wide covering of water? No sediment, no fossil layer, no nothing. But scientists are firmly in the belief it happened as they theorize.
There was a discovery made that conflicts with the idea the entire Earth was covered by water at any given point in time.
That idea was shattered with the discovery of the foundations of the first continent precedes the ocean.

Agreed, we are running the world our way and then curse God because he won't intervene to stop the misery we cause. It's actually very childlike.
Not having a shred of evidence, you bank with fiat currency that this world needed your rendition of god to assemble and spring forth life. Superstitious stories don't come true from repeating them over and over endlessly.

Your whole argument goes back to plants without sun!! How did they survive?
It is a evolutionist BS, ill thought out question. Plants and life live without sun all the time. Science can show you that and if nothing else just go look under your house where the sun never shines and see if there is life and things growing under there.
AS I have pointed out in the past, while the sun and the planet formed more or less at the same time, when the sun became a main-sequence star, the earth was still gaining mass and was far to hot to support plant life.

Plants life did not precede the sun.

One other item that escapes you. Most scientific theories are based on circumstantial evidence, not facts. I know you didn't know that but now you do. If you need examples to upgrade your knowledge let me know. I'll start you off with the big bang theory that isn't based on facts but circumstantial evidence. We can progress to the theory not based on facts called dark matter. After that we can go to organic life theorized on no facts as beginning from non-organic life.
Huh? Red-shift, expansion of the universe and the cosmic microwave background are not facts? Imagine my surprise.

Ya, right.
Your use of 'creatard' isn't correct terminology, either.
I ignore it because I'm not a pedant like you. I know what you mean.
You know what a person means when they say 'prove it'. Because you can't prove it, you stick to your pedantry.

Your right. Oh wait you said "That is an organic chemical that would at least indicate the possibility of other building blocks of our kind of life. However, it doesn't have to be carbon based."
"the possibility of other building blocks of our kind of life"
LMAO go to bed.
I was careful about what I wrote in response to you because I know you like to latch onto some minutia to attack, but I see that you are right. My statement could be misconstrued to mean that I consider propylene to be a building block of life. I don't by the way.

Now that is how an adult admits their mistakes. I don't expect to see you admit yours. Just in case I will keep my eye out for that evidence to support your claims.

You didn't understand the answer.
You asked, "Can science create a natural human brain?"

I responded, "Science describes by observation and testing, it creates understanding."

"Science" does not create brains, gall bladders, computers or yo-yos. It describes. Your question is fallacious.

The Miracle of Life:
from the Emmy award winning PBS nova broadcast.
Four and a half billion years ago, the young planet Earth was a mass of cosmic dust and particles. It was almost completely engulfed by the shallow primordial seas. Powerful winds gathered random molecules from the atmosphere .Some were deposited in the seas. Tides and currents swept the molecules together. And somewhere in this ancient ocean the miracle of life began....
The real miracle is how someone can claim this nonsense is scientific!
Here in all it's glory is the real creation myth!Hell! it even claims it was a miracle! can't get more religious than that.
Aura, here's your creation myth! ha,ha,ha.

all you puddle people need to assemble life is winds, tides and currents along with a few random molecules eh?

You members of the Liars R us club will believe in anything no matter how stupid.

The difference in us is I believe a being called God created life, you believe life created itself.
...and you believe that's logical? since there's zero evidence of that it's a belief. Hey! your religion is fun.
yes, zero evidence for any god. and most likely the god you believe in has been proven to be false... yeah...religion is fun..

I am going to repost this:
Letís do a little comparison.
The bible says God created life.
Science says life created itself.
The bible says we all descend from 8 people.
Science says we all come from common ancestors and at one point, from the same organism.
The bible says the earth, sun and moon were created at/around the same time.
Science says the earth and moon are 4.5 billion years old and the sun is 4.6 billion years old. Pretty much around the same time given that much time.
There is sort of a trend/similarity there, just different beliefs.
no, no similarities there...

remember the bible says the Earth was formed and populated with plants before the sun was created...quite different stories. one impossible, one proven by fact...

I did! Did you miss it? Here I will post it again.
It all starts at conception,,, skip ahead. The child is born,,, skip ahead,,, The child eats and grows,,, skip ahead,,, learns to crawl then walk,,, skip ahead,,, gets a bike for their birthday with training wheels,,, skip ahead,,, eventually the training wheels can be taken off because they learn to get on that bike and just ride it. That is how it works. Hopefully you will loose your training wheels in life soon.
jeez what a tool! how many times are you going to mispell the word lose?

you still haven't given a better answer, or any answer at all for how a bike works. why is that? i gave a perfectly clear, accurate and concise answer in about three seconds thinking, it has been over two weeks and still nothing from you...
