You would be correct with that statement.
No land belongs to anybody, we are all occupying until we need it no longer.

I didn't say that. I'm just saying people have been uprooted from their "natural home" many times throughout history, and it doesn't make much sense to try and organize the world based on whose ancestors came from where.

Even evolution started with some kind of force, or maybe the instructions were already there. But from where because sure in the hell not by itself, if evolution if proven to be outright true.

I didn't go on wiki. The information I shared with you is widely known and non technical, so I don't know why you would think I would have needed wiki.

You're making bold claims without backing them up, at all. Evolution doesn't need some divine force guiding it, that is why evolution is such an elegant mechanism. As for the big bang, you're just spouting apologist nonsense again. There are many theories as to how the universe started and none of them need to invoke some unknown being flipping a switch.

Side note - it's hilarious that creationists require for us to literally obtain every single piece of evidence to prove any scientific theory (which we would have to be omnipresent to do), but they don't require even close to the same level of scrutiny for their goddidit nonsense. Why does evolution need to be proven to an unreasonable degree for you to accept it, but your god belief needs nothing of the sort? You support it with vague suppositions about god "needing" to be the starting force, and nothing else. A lack of a perfect scientific theory of everything, as you seem to demand, does not prove god. Proof for god would prove god, which you have none of.

1. Amos 9:14-15 : The prophet said that there would come a time when the exiles of Israel would again have Israel as their own land and that they would never be uprooted again.
2. Ezekiel 37: 10-14 Israel would be brought to life. The prophet receives a vision in which Israel was seen as a scattering of dried-up bones. In this vision, God tells Ezekiel that the bones (Israel) would be brought back to life.
3. Isaiah 66: 7-8 Isaiah spoke of Israel being born in one day. During one day, the United States recognized Israel's sovereignty. Just hours before a U.N. mandate expired, ending British control of the land. Within a 24 hours of time, foreign control of the land of Israel had formally ceased, and Israel had declared its independence.
4. Ezekiel 37: 21-22 Israel would be re-established as 1 nation.
5. Jeremiah 16: 14-15 The reborn Israel will be more powerful and impressive than the 1st.
There's more. But even if one doesn't believe in the prophesy, its still kind of interesting none the less......
Most of those are pretty similar, and not very impressive. I would be impressed if they came with a date, a description of the circumstances surrounding israel's reclamation, name of the first leader, etc, etc. What about all the biblical prophecies that didn't stick?

Oh I know. I wasn't debating if the Palestinians liked it or not. But I was just pointing out "self fulfilled" prophesies that seem to have come to be. Not 1. Not 2. But 10 that come to mind.
I don't think the bible would fare too well on an objective check of all it's prophecies, not just the ones concerning israel.

The big bang theory says nothing of the sort, that's just you projecting your own insecurities on it. Life can be meaningful without a god. That's up to you. I, for one, believe my life is meant for something more than becoming an eternal lapdog in heaven.

Your evolution/survival/purpose argument makes no sense whatsoever. Evolution does not need to have "meaning" to work. That is absurd.

There U go again talking about what U think U are sure of. If U believe that something comes from nothing, then it is U who has the delusions of nonsense. Since there are many theories that U're up on and none of them "invoke" a starting driving force we know as a divine being, then which of them states that something comes spontaneously from nothing and is in fact the truth?

No, I don't have any proof of God that I can show U and think that it would be satisfactory to your kind. Life demands an able body and mind in order to come into existence. How can it happen on its own? I don't see how people can be so stubborn to open their eyes to the obvious! I don't see why evolutionists require a sign from God before they can realize He exists? If U ignore the obvious things around U everyday, then how can U be satisfied with any "sign"? I believe if U found out that God is definitely real, U would still curse His being and deny Him to His face because that is most likely who U are and for whatever reason just hate God anyway.

U can't be this......never mind! Evolution REQUIRES meaning. According to ET any mutation is meant to do something. For better or for worse. Why would U think that no meaning is needed in the process. Whatever steps are taken through evolution, it means something whether Darwin's finches were meant to grow beaks efficient for cracking certain seeds or whether apes evolved into sophisticated man. If these things were not MEANT to happen, they would not have happen. It is just thick-headed individuals that refuse to realize this. It's not hard but some seem to make it so!

See what you get for believing?

A lot of words. No substance. You should have taken a picture.
