I think you're lying again, and I believe that there is nothing that you wouldn't say to promote your religion and its church. I think that you have little awareness - and you church little regard - for the damage you might do. They don't care, and nor will you.
Neither you nor your church cares if your scientific disinformation makes causes a child to disrespect, never learn science, and become less competitive in the world. You don't care if is undermines trust in science and facilitates the climate change naysayers.
Why should either of you? You're an uncritical Christian who does what his selfish church wants him to do without regard for the consequence, and your church is a societal parasite.
The reality is that he is jealous that you know more about his buybull more than he does. They get all nasty and stuck up when we know more about their fiction than they do.

I am coining a new word "Blind Evolution" where no one knows what shape and size and properties would a new specie will take from the one it started to evolve.
I need not have to look into any dictionary for this new word.
This "Blind Theory of Evolution" is what our Pseudo Scientists have made out of the "Original Theory of Evolution" as propounded by Darwin.

Let me guess, the reason you don't want to post any evidence for your claims is because the same website has pictoral evidence of you molesting camels.

These pictures of you engaging in bestiality are just as real as your claims about Darwin's theories, right?

A pity for you that science tells us that 2 of any species aren't enough to keep it alive.

The bible doesn't teach much about the perils of inbreeding, does it?

Sure not, according to the Bible, we should all be descending from an unique couple.

The only conclusion is that trandiode and the MUQsis are fanatic fundamentalists

Agreed.
The cardinal feature of perfection is that you can't change it and still have perfection. Imagine a perfect circle. Any change in it makes it imperfect. A perfect god not only couldn't act, it couldn't think. Thinking would change its perfect mental state.
Actually you can take a circle and make it in perfect, as you can a sphere,, I do however understand your thought here.

The problem I have with Muqs line of thought is as I have tried to point out. A all power full and knowing entity in total control, knowing all that has ever been , or all that will ever be, is interesting.,, However,, a perfect entity has no room for mistakes, they do not enter the equation,,, to do so becomes less than perfect. therefore god or gods is pure fabrication by men who wish to play god.

Nonsense.

If you'd like to be taken seriously, source your claims. Naked claims are just opinions until supported with evidence and cogent argument. I don't care what you believe - just what you can demonstrate.

I think he is alluding to the fact that Noahs flood bears strong resemblance to the epic of gilgamesh.

However he is also proving that he's a troll and doesn't actually believe the stuff he writes.

After all, the epic of gilgamesh is around 1000 years older than the torah AND the mere suggestion that there were 500 boats completely contradicts the story in the bible that god was just saving noah and his family.

Survivors tell the tale. Biblically speaking, that would be impossible, there were no surviving societies nor people left to tell. Dead people also quit keeping record of their own history, and several groups of peoples have an unbroken line of historical documentation, going back thousands of years. So suffice it to say, there are places on this planet, that the world-wide flood never touched. Too many in fact, for the "Noah and the ark" tale to be truth.

Agreed - that and any other number of other myths that he chooses to invoke as evidence for his Noachian myth, which, as you note, is distinct from the others in its specifics.

You do not know anything about the origins of the story of Noah ! It well precedes the date that it was written about in the Torah ! So your timing is off and not only that, the part of the Torah you are referring to was Gods description to the Jewish people about their history and their history only ! It was done for the Jewish people to help them understand about there own history of events ! Not the whole of mankind's at that moment in time ! Understand that and it may open your eyes a bit ! That is why the same story can be found in so many other places , it happened all over the earth and was not limited to just Noah and his single Ark !

First of all, no one yells every sentence they speak. So stop using the ! symbol. Secondly, why the hell are there spaces between the end of the statement and the exclamation point? Are you an ape?!

What evidence is there of this claim,,, such an occurrence would leave geological proof of one sort or another. Other than words in a book of fables supestition and myths you have nothing.
