Still no evidence or accountable position. Pretty sad.
Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe
Look! John-the-coward is too afraid to open links which prove 100% he is lying.

I just reviewed the first several of my classic links to atheists presenting things they are willing to debate.

And they are 100% spot-on proof Nothing-John is lying.

Lying-John: been lying since he first oozed into this forum.

You are correct. That was speculation. But you asked why there were no other genetic lines of living things. I pointed out that there *may* have been other lines originally.

In answer to your main question, among other things, the atmosphere is not the same today as it was 3.8 billion years ago. Part of the reason is that about 2 billion years ago, organsims started making oxygen and releasing it into the atmosphere. This is known from the iron band formations produced when the chemistry of the oceans changed by becoming more oxidizing. But the first life formed when the oceans had little disolved oxygen and that alone drastically changes the chemistry relevant to the formation of life. In other words, the conditions for *new* strains of life with a different chemical basis simply haven't existed for the last 2 billion years.

No, it is a religious book. It is often transcribed as 'Bible', but 'Buybull' is more descriptive.

So as conditions changed new spontaneous life should have continued to pump out different new forms of life at least every half billion years or so.
Yet only DNA / RNA is the only method used. Rather odd!

At least get your insults correct!

The age is the Iron Age not Bronze Age.

BFD. I wasn't giving a history lesson, I just use the term "Bronze Age" to mean "really, really old and out dated". And I will continue to use the term.

I remember that dyslexic idiot claiming he worked in the science field. When asked what he did he quickly ran away with his fingers in his ears.

Low IQ idiot couldn't even come up with a job title except science.

Lmfao!

He just keeps scampering into stupidity.

Well, his BuyBull does exhort it's worshipers to act like a child, and to eschew adult thoughts of any kind.

Children are more gullible after all, and make for better sheep.

And that's what it's about, in the end: to turn thinking humans into non-thinking sheep.

Or as they are so often called: "people of faith"

You know.

Self-inflicted morons.

It would not help.

His brain damage is too great.

He prefers wallowing in self-inflicted ignorance.

Didn't the bible myths start long before 1000 BCE?

Actually, I've seen pretty good scholarly work, showing that the oldest buybull sh7t is no older than about 500 BCE.

That it was deliberately written to appear as if it was much older--when it isn't.

That certainly fits with archeology, as nothing in the BuyBull that is older than 500BCE exists as written.
