not familiar with Urb, but i have seen many people on Topix and other sites that seem far more concerned with the likes or whatever they call them than what they actually post...

my best advice is to ignore them completely use actual words to agree or disagree with a post.

Urban Cowboy. A dyed-in-the-wool creationist who is quite sure he knows everything. Lately he's been arguing with Polymath, a PhD, on entropy on the "Should evolution be taught in high school' thread.

Actually, the entropy debate has been fairly recent. And fairly long. And fairly boring. It Urb's attempt to prove evolution is impossible because of the Second Law of Thermodynamics.{yawn}

Nuts. You are pretty damned quick to throw that "liar" term out there over something that you've seen posted before and is on the ---> very first page of your own book.
Gen 1:11-12 Plants - the third day
Gen 1:14-16 the Sun and moon - the fourth day
Genesis 2;

2 Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.

2 By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.

4 This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, when the Lord God made the earth and the heavens.

5 Now no shrub had yet appeared on the earth[a] and no plant had yet sprung up, for the Lord God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no one to work the ground, 6 but streams[b] came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground.

since the global flood didn't happen, this dipsroves the infallibility of that god or the concept of divine inspiration in the writing of the bible...
Where in the bible does "God" say the world flooded?

grass, herbs, trees...all in verse 12. again, your cult's attempt to create a god failed miserably.

Agreed. However, that takes the all-knowing, bible dictating god out of the picture.
So you say because they didn't know as much as God, then God must be false. Interesting.

They could not lack in knowledge if said knowledge did not exist.

Ahhh...the ol' " it can't become more complex" argument totally ignoring the massive amount of energy input into our sytem here on earth? yeah, that is a tired old one.

So no divine inspiration? so then the bible is just the word of man, thus the god therein is just the creation of man.

doesn't the bible clearly say god told noah that he would flood the world, and then gave the rainbow as his word he wouldn't do it again?

that sounds a lot like god saying he flooded the world.

perhaps you should read your cult book some more...

Gebnesis 6:17
And behold, I Myself am bringing floodwaters on the earth, to destroy from under heaven all flesh in which is the breath of life; everything that is on the earth shall die.

Genesis 7:19
And the waters prevailed exceedingly on the earth, and all the high hills under the whole heaven were covered.

Genesis 7:20
The waters prevailed fifteen cubits upward, and the mountains were covered.

You have another interpretation?

Yep I guess a book that is written never changes from chapter to chapter as the understanding gets clearer. OH wait, they do change as the writer/writers understands things more. Non-fiction books, science books, law books, medical books, just about every book that has been written changes in the chapters as the topic being written about is more understood.

You need a reading comprehension course. I didn't say anything remotely like that.

Yep. Man wrote that, not God. You all keep referring to God as the writer of the bible when in was man.

how would that explain it clearly stating there was grass, herbs and trees on the Earth before there was rain or before there was a sun?

and again, you are just disproving divine inspiration, and thus your god.
