Also argued that the nutty pharaoh belief was the source of the Hebrew one god belief and also spawned the son (sun) of god belief

Good topic, first, I had that post in draft mode, closed my laptop last night and woke up to a post! opened it this am, was still in edit mode. Oh well. See if I can do better today.

As you know, we are sitting along the Ring of Fire in the west. Brown maintains that as our solar systems only planet with a crust, that "all the fountains of the great deep burst forth" meant the deep aquifer's that were part of the first earth hydrological system of springs and mists ripped apart and then pushed the plates in one worldwide event, Pangia to Present. When you look at the well logs from the rifts, you see magnetic reversals in the now lithified magma along defined and consistent lines as you go down to drill limits, like was observed in the Steens scarp face. Think about that. Theres more.

LOL, oh yes it is that simple.....
According to the Jews they spent many unhappy years living with the Egyptians, and Moses, who was a Prince of Egypt and raised as an Egyptian wrote the First Five books of the Bible.
If you compare the Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead with the Holy Bible, you discover that much of the Bible is verse for verse, word for word identical.
Therefore the Bible is false.

After all it shows that God is not the only God and that God is not all powerful. Plus there's the part where Moses allegedly led people OUT of Egyptian controlled territory, across the desert unnoticed by a single Egyptian garrison, and to freedom - back INTO what was known as Egyptian controlled territory at the time.

Either way though the fact remains that Adam and Eve never existed, donkeys and lizards don't talk, and the Earth is not a flat square circle at the center of the universe.

Brown has postulated for many years that when the drills go deep enough, they should hit the original remnant aquifer at 7-10 miles down, in the last several years they have. Another feature along the rifts is the parallel lines of magma "stretch marks". These lines are the seams made at the 6 hour ebb and flow of the lunar cycles acting on the crust as new material was pushed out by the lunar effect that warped the curst.
See Dr. Walt Browns video in the links on this site;

More on the Aquifer network and Ox16/18 issue;

http://www.genesisalive.com/2013/10/the-first...

The paper cited in the above mentions the ratio of Ox16/18 where scientists are perplexed why its off in early-earth polar samples, different due to how far water makes contact with terrain before being used by flora. More smoking gun evidence that the hydro system was exactly what the Bible records.

Fundies can't count. Plus refuse to take other factors into account such as mountain building. At GLOBAL FLOOD erosion rates there would BE no mountains. Plus even better you then NEED evolution to happen to account for biological variation from a tiny population.

Of course that tiny population are now crispy-critters, but...

Look at the main Gods of Ancient Egypt. Look at the other ancient religions and their strange looking Gods, half man, half bird or beast. These things are called Mythology. I am not so certain.
The Ancient Egyptians spent most of the Gross Domestic Product of Egypt on Religion, Temples, and Statues. If they didn't see anything unusual right in their midst, what do you think drove them to do such a thing?
2 Kings 2:23-24

Elisha Is Jeered
23 From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some boys came out of the town and jeered at him.“Get out of here, baldy!” they said.“Get out of here, baldy!” 24 He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the Lord. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the boys.
So angels are shape shifting aliens , gottcha.

Even if evolution is true (and there is plenty of evidence to support it), scientists cannot explain how the very first cell came into existence.
After the Big Bang, the universe was sterile. SOMETHING happened to cause life to appear out of nothing.
So you're saying it was not sterile before the "Big Bang"

Humans are exactly like a virus or bacteria. We multiply and will gradually but surely use up all the resources on this planet.

Recently the Hubbell images of deep space were analyzed and were found to closely resemble the magnified images of the brain of rats. Think of how a thought occurs in a human brain. electronically there is a sudden explosion requiring coordination of all other associated cells. As the thought process is solved by either remembering or forgetting the thought dissolves and things settle to normal again.

I believe we're like the mites beneath a strand of grass in our lawns. All we see, all we study is the grass.

Sorry SBT, but I don't see anything in there that shows anything like the Galaxy class USS Enterprise-D is even possible, much less ever built. The reason being they AT LEAST need a fusion-powered engine to reach mimimum safe distance. Oh, plus fancy force-fields to survive all the asteroids, comets and meteorites that were apparently being shot out of the Earth at such speeds as to reach escape velocity.

When you HAVE that then your global flood MIGHT be able to work.

Take your time.

I appreciate that you took in the video. Studying where I did, there was a whole team of Geologists that worked in the mid-ocean rifts. Chatted w/some about their work. Learned a few things that were also integrated into courses. Brown has alot going for him in his hypothesis that resonated w/me. Why were the frozen mammoths peppered with meteorite shrapnel for one. I could give you more from the rift zones, alot more.

Have in above post to SZ

On turtles, they control their buoyancy and conserve air, totally diff than other reptiles so they would be deposited in upper strata, and they are.

On genetics all agree that things are corrupting not enhancing. Further supports my point, going back = pure gene data and an evo proof Cell/DNA mechanism. So by that if mutations are the rule we should be more broken down in Ayala's "Genetic load". Were are having those issues. The evo genetic experts are simply flooding the media with corn data to hide whats going on, they are going backward's and lose every time someone turns the microscopes up a few more power. Your side has a real problem on the DNA/Cell side and would be annihilated in a public debate anytime, anyday.

Consider "junk" DNA. Consider fold markers, the list goes on and grows nearly every quarter, then someone quickly conjures up a new evolutionary explanation. Then my side picks them apart and your side say's all we do is act like critics and don't do any real science. Partly true because your folks have many more spin masters to keep in check. Partly wrong because our fullltime people came out of research mainly too keep those boys honest, a real chore these days. Least Dean Kenyon, evo hero of the 70"s, was man enough to come clean. That's the truth. To be scientific, you must explain the non-life barrier and you can't.

At uniform erosion rates, all the mountains of earth would be worn flat in <20MY, love it when they get dated old. Why are the Himalayas sea floor? They show little sign of erosion, with that weather a few thousand years should have them rounded off. Check into it.

Above is just a reminder from my non-answer, answer and your ongoing dodging, like the Foraman Ovale "evolution" that you are stumped over, like the Proton Powered Axial Motor you are stumped over, like you had not a clue how stratigraphy is identified using fossil deposits but yet are an evolutionist!

Jesus said,:Which one of you by taking thought can change One Hair on your head?"
God and whatever machine he chooses to ride in, if he wants one, can Think himself and his optional machine from one side of the Universe in the blink of an eye, NOT Hundreds of Thousands of Light Years.
Look for him and/or the angels in the skies near you...
The Bible says, "Strange things will be seen in the skies in the End Times."
The speed of though was thought to be quite slow, in the realms of metres per second, hence reaction times to stimuli in of an average 0.7 of a second. Recently developed techniques show that individual neurones need only twenty to thirty milliseconds to mediate perception.

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/...

However still a snails pace compared to the speed of light that would travel the distance of a neurone in fractions of pico second

I believe what you are confusing with thought is actually imagination and of course there is no limit to what people can imagine.

The babble says lots of things, the babble says your god was the first trickster, first to commit genocide, the first mass murderer of children, your god condones slavery, rape and theft. So please to not be upset when some people are not willing to bow down to a god like that.

Yes, your reminder is nothing more than an example of projection.

Remember, you don't HAVE any good points. On the off chance you managed to come up with anything even SLIGHTLY plausible we can ignore it as it's already been undercut by some MAJOR booboos that you have not addressed. Ever. You can't point to some interesting geological quirk then claim that all science is wrong therefore Flood when Flood wipes out Noah and co in numerous horrible and quite final ways. This is then "solved" with Jewmagic.

Keep dodging, Subordinate.

You are right in that for a short time under one Pharaoh the worship of local little gods was banned, and he ONLY Allowed the worship of the ONE Supreme God___Amen Ra.
When he died the UNemployed Priests of the temples of the little gods got their way and re-opened the temples to the little gods and the Priests went back to work making money and goods.
Yes, Akhenaten. Aten was his substitute for Ra.

Amun-Ra was a composite god. Originally they were two separate gods. Ra, god of the sun and Amun, god of hidden power.
So attempting to portray the ancient Egyptian religion as monotheistic is a bit of a stretch.
