<quoted text>i have dodged nothing. why do you think science has the answer to every wuestion humankind has ever asked?
no human knows the answer to that question. why can't you just accept that? why do you have to make up some myth about it and then claim it as fact?
If You and science cannot answer these questions...then you cannot claim that religion's answers are invalid.

I have actually heard fundies claim that days might have been really long back then and that 6 days could mean anything!
In which case, why say 6 days?
<quoted text>
Because 7 is a "magical", gosh-number.

And they do love their magic, these True Believers™.

Since you have a vast repertoire of scientific knowledge at your disposal due to education, why can't you explain what caused SOMETHING to expand and form the universe? Why can't you tell me where it came from?
Because so far many have told you and at every turn you deny it and spew religous crap...YOU CAN ELAD A HORSE TO WATER.....But you cnat make a rleigous nut understand fact....

1+1=2 that is fact....JUST LIKE SCIENCE IS FACT.

Based on what? If you know NOTHING about the origin of the universe, you can't say with certainty that it wasn't created in 7 days. You can't say with certainty that it wasn't created by God.
Actually?

You CAN say it wasn't created by your nothing-god.

Why?

Because you have YET to show your nothing-god is a something.

LOL!

You are seriously stupid, now.

btw BBSting you slipped up cause your book says 6 days not 7. God had a nap on the seventh day. Since then he and Jesus having been sitting enthroned with arms crossed not answering prayers and watching humankind destroy each other and the earth, and doing nothing to stop natural disasters, according to theists.
Yep.

A nothing-god, doing nothing.

Exactly as we would expect from....

... no god at all!

How about that?

LOL!

The reason why "atheist" is often rejected by rational thinkers, is because HATETHEISTS such as yourself re-define the word into a strawam non-word of your own design.
In a pathetic and dishonest attempt to re-brand rationalists into some sort of brain-dead BELIEVER (like you are now).
But that won't fly. Rational thinkers just don't believe in stupid sh7t, like gods.
But you do-- thus? You are stupid.
There is no two ways about that: you believe in stupid shyt (gods).
So you are all kinds of self-induced stupid.
You are no rationalist if you cannot answer my questions. What CAUSED Something to suddenly expand and form the universe and where did it come from?

If your religion has no evidence supporting or suggesting it, then it is only sane to say your religion possesses no answers. It is perfectly logical and more sane to say that your religion is just mythology.

Evolution and the big bang theory will one day be 100% proven. As for now we have to settle for the 50% proof we have for evolution and big bang. BETTER THEN ZERO PROOF OF CREATION...

I think my message is clear. When you can solve the mystery of how something can come from nothing then you can ask for evidence of God. Until then, shut you freakin'pie hole.
Actually, it's the other way around. Unless you can provide some evidence god exists, there is no reason to even entertain the idea that he does.
I'm assuming you can't come up with any evidence god exists.

Science says SOMETHING went bang but it cannot explain what it was or where it came from. This version is even more nebulous than the Christian's idea of creation! And worse, you believe it! Why?

You buy into what I call the "myth of atheist obligation".
Atheists aren't obligated to explain how the universe began.
People who claim god exists need to provide evidence he does.
But they never do.

If you are going to assert that "there is no reason to even entertain the idea" that God exists, then you must provide more than opinion to substantiate your position.

There will always be questions about the origin of the universe I can't answer.

But I do the creation story in Genesis is just a Bronze Age myth that any rational person will dismiss as an explanation of how life, the universe, and everything began.
