Yeah rub it in...

We are either approaching a mayor linguistic hurdle or wondering whether snails are cannibals.

I provide the evidence and you contradicted the babble. Not my problem,
but yours to live with.
You appear to be suffering from weapons grade stupidity
<quoted text>
Nope, not invisible, the do not exist so haw can visibly of any degree
come into it?
So does this day/date change for say a whale swimming across the “date
line”?
How about migrating birds?
These imaginary lines, along with date are arbitrary and based on
mathematics and consensus.
<quoted text>
You are confused, your weapons grade stupidity strikes again. Science
has answered many of humanities pressing problems, but not all, for two
reasons, one, a solution may not be viable to a manmade problem and two
we may not yet have the understanding, but unlike godbots, science is
working toward solutions. Both concepts are completely beyond your
weapons grade stupidity of “doh, I don unnerstan so it mus be god wot
did it”
So you are saying genocide, child murder, slavery and rape are
justified. Fair enough, just so long as we know where we stand with you.
<quoted text>
Yes you did, you said “there is one god” and the babble tells you
otherwise, it was not until this was pointed out to you that you changes
you mind.
I can ask the same question, why should we worship something made in the
minds of bronze age goat herders and escaped slaves?
<quoted text>
What you say is irrelevant. Only 3 faiths, three is not many unless you
count – one – two - many – lots.
So you are saying the positions of priests and popes and preachers is
wrong.
<quoted text>
I have never denied otherwise. However science can observe and test
facts, the thing you gets you going is the fact that it cannot test and
observe myth.
And lastly, the almighty is one. i don't give a damn about your babbling.

No, actually i followed the main players into the field, did some self research and then went to college on the geology side. When the evo theories all fell apart there it confirmed to me who was miss leading who. My profs agreed in general to boot.
Yeah right. Gotcha. Evolution all fell apart. Dang the luck. All your professors turned their noses up to science and went with unsubstantiated belief. Gosh, I'm convinced.

I kinda liked escargots. But then I gre up picking periwinkles off the rocks at low tide. They're tiny marine snails, and you need a pin to get 'em out.
"Winkle them out."

Oh, and they're delicious.

This verse does rather suggest it's a snake.
3:14 And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
Lol.

I've asked this question a dozen times, never getting an answer.

What logic would it serve for God to curse a snake to become a snake?

my whole point was your inability to use logic.
You did not say 'it can be'.

You said "a fingerprint at a crime scene is direct evidence of that person being at the crime scene"

I understand, your ego is in the way.

Grolsh is very good. Don't know about that other one. Bitburger Pils has always been a favorite of mine since my Germany days. Now days, mostly Yuengling (after two years of convincing my local watering hole to put it on tap).
Bud/Bud light? Bleh!
Years ago, the Anheuser-Busch reps annoyed the day manager of my local. She told 'em, "Okay. No more Anheuser-Busch products".

They said "You can't do that!"

Pub still doesn't carry anything by Anheuser.

Hehehe.

your logic is non-existent...

you worship a proven false god.

you use anecdotal evidence to attempt to back up your claims.

you attempt to use non-evidence as proof of non-existence and then in another post say non-evidence isn't proof of non-existence.

pretty much just idiotic posts all around, attempting to back up what has already been proven false.

cult mentality at its finest...

Technically, yes, they're crustaceans. Never ate them, though.
They are considered a delicacy in some parts.

the same god's prophet mohammed says the devil walked out of the garden of eden, leaving a trail of garlic and onions where his left and right foot touched the ground, respectively...

why would the same god have different stories about the same incident? oh yeah, it is a proven myth!
