Yeah... No. The bible cannot prove itself to be true, but it can prove itself to be false. I know; it sounds so unfair, but that is just the way it is.
Ya, I've heard.

...because you say so.

You are exactly wrong in your premise.
Example of truth:

Every scientist knows that,
we came from processes we "can" understand.

Now when you follow from this premise your whole storyline falls apart.

Atheists despite all the functions offered to them such as the world of academia, universities, technology and like cannot come up with one physical experiment that can produce physical results that can be measured or replicated.
All they come up with is giant theories with giant budgets which are nothing more than giant opinions which end up requiring giant media spin and hype to appear acceptable to the public and even then they play word games of semantics and dialectic to confuse people or make them apathetic.
They claim everything came from nothing, just think about it...no oxygen, no light, no dirt, nothing....and that it came from its own accord.
They will say that it came about by chance, but even chance can be measured in a matter of odds whether it be 100000000000000000 to 1 or 2 to 1. This implies the use of mathematics and 'nothing' cannot use mathematics on its own accord because it is .....well....nothing!
Only an intelligence can use mathematics as part of whatever equation it uses to decide to bring about 'something'.
So what was the intelligence that existed before creation as we know it?
There can be only one answer..... GOD ..!

Amusing.

We came from processes we can understand.

Which could be how pixie dust works, for all we really know.

A robot may be able to deduce it is made of parts, and how it is assembled, and maybe even construct its own devices, but does it know where those original parts came from?

The "Origin of life" is slowly being understood, but that is not the premise of" where we came from".
That is understood quite well, we know we came from the process of evolution of life on Earth , over a 3.8 billion year history.
We came from the evolution of many organisms on Earth.
It IS explained meticulously in science using genetic and through the fossil record.

A sex expert at what? You mean your wife was your tutor, and you learnt from her?

Also, it would take years for someone to own the sort of property you claim to own, especially with your job. How did you earn it?

Sounds like you're the male home owners worst nightmare, when his wife wants additions and upgrades. At least if you practice that sexpert stuff to clients wives. lol
