Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Germany was duped by a mad man. A zealot that was able to persuade millions with his radical speeches. From the bowels of Austria, he came forth.

I will not stoop so low to call you a liar. Nor will I deny millions of believers inside of Germany had been deceived by this manic depressive. They fell into a cult like movement which was wicked to its very core.

But those 100’s of millions of believers outside of Germany were not deceived. They took up arms in Europe and outside of Europe to bring this monster and his wicked empire down.

Germany paid a high price both in loss of life, property and country. A divided country they became.

<quoted text>So you are saying that the bible is wrong when it gives the date of Noah's flood? You're as much as saying the biblical time-line is invalid. Good for you for recognizing how untrustworthy your holy book is when it comes to any science matters.
Yes, you are right to believe what Dr. Ballard has found, the Black Sea Deluge, which undoubtedly flooded a huge portion of land. Now, did you see ANYWHERE were Dr Ballad mentioned a (WORLD-WIDE FLOOD?) Did he mention the earth flooded to the extent where entire mountain ranges were covered?
Do yourself a friggin favor and do just a little research on the subject, that way you won't look so fuckinstupid.
For the third time the Bible doesn’t list a date of Noah’s flood. Genealogy is listed.

Despite what you believe is impossible. The entire Earth must have been covered up in water at one time because there are marine fossils on mountain tops. I’m not claiming that was from Noah’s flood. I’m just saying water covered the earth at one time or most of it.

Even at the top of the Grand Canyon’s South Rim is evidence of marine fossils.

I have stated many times that Noah’s flood was massive and encompassed thousands of square miles. We see floods like that even today in the United States. Did it cover the entire global earth? Probably not but it did cover the earth where people lived. So the Earth as they knew it flooded.

Now why would you try to make us believe that a flood could not happen in Noah’s day when floods happen today in our time?

Apparently those at the creation museum disagree with you on the entire earth being covered during the Noah flood.

Many Christians today think the Flood of Noah’s time was only a local flood, confined to somewhere around Mesopotamia. This idea comes not from Scripture, but from the notion of “billions of years” of Earth history.
But look at the problems this concept involves:
If the Flood was local, why did Noah have to build an Ark? He could have walked to the other side of the mountains and missed it.
If the Flood was local, why did God send the animals to the Ark so they would escape death? There would have been other animals to reproduce that kind if these particular ones had died.
If the Flood was local, why was the Ark big enough to hold all kinds of land vertebrate animals that have ever existed? If only Mesopotamian animals were aboard, the Ark could have been much smaller.1
If the Flood was local, why would birds have been sent on board? These could simply have winged across to a nearby mountain range.
If the Flood was local, how could the waters rise to 15 cubits (8 meters) above the mountains (Genesis 7:20)? Water seeks its own level. It couldn’t rise to cover the local mountains while leaving the rest of the world untouched.2
If the Flood was local, people who did not happen to be living in the vicinity would not be affected by it. They would have escaped God’s judgment on sin.3 If this happened, what did Christ mean when He likened the coming judgment of all men to the judgment of “all” men (Matthew 24:37–39) in the days of Noah? A partial judgment in Noah’s day means a partial judgment to come.
If the Flood was local, God would have repeatedly broken His promise never to send such a flood again.

The date seems pretty clear here in Genesis 6-11, Don't you believe your own holy book?

Noah’s Ark and The Flood: Genesis Chapters 6-11

The events of The Flood and Noah’s Ark begin with the Death of Methuselah on Friday September 13 – Tishri 1 in 2458 BC (BR). Noah’s Family enters the Ark 47 days after the death of Methuselah’s on Wednesday October 30 – Heshvan 10 in 2458 BC (BR). This same day on the Gregorian-Hebrew Solar Calendar (GH) is Wednesday March 19 – Adar 29, 2449 BC. Genesis 7:11-12 tells us that 7 Days later, on Wednesday November 6 – Heshvan 17, it began to rain “for forty days and forty nights.”

Respectfully, I think this statement is slightly askew and an over simplification. A business arrangement that side-stepped usual business protocols and new IBM factory in Germany, one could argue, were about all IBM assisted in. The usage of the technology by the Nazis to track and cross reference its own people (Jews and otherwise) was not an IBM activity.
Also note, the United States business with IBM during this same time period dwarfed the arrangements IBM made with Germany. Why not claim the IBM was assiting the US?

Where all this extra water came from and where it went is usually avoided by the Godbots. I do believe that Dave thinks the planet flew through a giant celestial rain cloud, of course that doesn't account for where all that water disappeared to.
Well, isn't the answer obvious? I mean if one assumes there was an all-powerful God behind the curtain during the flood then clearly he could simply make all the water vanish. After all, being all-powerful lets you do that kind of stuff.

Even if the every land mass has been under water at some time that doesn't mean it was at the same time.
Also, using parts of the bible to prove itself is inherently a bad idea.

I think the calculations behind what you say are a little too simple for the dynamics that occurred. True, you had more mass per square inch exerting downward pressure from where the vapor condensed, but that was mass in motion and the vapor formation creates a relative vacuum above it. You have updrafts and such with just air created by those dynamics of changing densities. In the end it could expand the atmosphere due to those masses in motion displacing lighter air away from the planet. It wouldn't be simple buoyancy. Some very complicated physical relationships involved. That needs to be studied in much greater detail to assume such would occur.
No, no, no, word salad with "mysterious force dressing" is not a response, Dave.

Atmospheric pressure is atmospheric pressure and if the entire world, within a 40 day period, or a year, gained 3-5 miles in diameter of water, we would be toast...ermmm...more like lifeless meat sacks.

The biblical deluge is a myth.

Maybe it was an all powerful mouse, or maybe an all powerful Flazatham.

If you're gonna assume an entity with magical or supernatural powers did something like what you're suggesting it can be anything.

Make it a supernatural mule that pulls the earth and created a "holy" pasture.

Put wings on that mule and call it Delroy. Del for short.

You could even just say "magic did it" and not even assign a "creature" or entity as being responsible for the process and just assume that's the way it is.

Magic steps in when "supernaturalists" assume something they want to believe is behind the things about their mythology that doesn't make sense.

Praise Del.
