The point is the evidence is out their is you are looking for the truth.
So that means if the Bible is true than we are all inbred descendants of Adam & Eva but didn't every human other than Noah & his family die in the flood, so that means we are all inbred descendants of Noah So how did over 6 billion different colored, different looking, different speaking people come to populate the planet in such a sort time. lolol O that's right god can do anything.

That's right. It may not be science to you, but when SETI finds evidence in space, you will be wrong!
There could be life all over and SETI still couldn't find anything. Reason being the logistics involved in contacting other civilisations. Space is simply too big.

How else can DNA be formed? random chance? I don't think so.
No, neither do we. Of course anyone who had the slightest clue about science wouldn't even postulate such a scenario as random outcomes from chemical processes.

So much for your "science education".

Thus design arguments versus the mindless nonsense of evolutionary philosophy predate Darwin by a long shot.
Yup. Design arguments are thousands of years old.

And they've developed very little since.

Wrong

Science is now considering the once taboo question of “what happened before”. Given the now overwhelming theoretical and mathematical understanding of the nature of both the universe and that existing outside our universe it is now considered very doubtful if a creation (in the sense of something from nothing) occurred at all.

Certainly the vast majority of people working in the field of cosmology have reached that conclusion, including long time big bang adherents who have on seeing the maths modified their position. This universe is known to be around 13,7 billion years old. It is now understood to be surrounded by other universes (there is evidence for this from 3 different sources) that have over infinite time grown and spawned other universes and will be the eventual fate of our own universe. From infinite past to infinite future

I have discussed this with you before and offered you links to the appropriate sites and scientists and the methods of how they are now able to consider these once unthinkable thoughts. It seems that you have been ignoring your education for some strange reason.

Anyone with two neurons synapsing correctly knows that the "creation/design/evolutio n debate predates Darwin by AGES AND AGES:
Nice recap. I enjoyed the perspective. I remember reading Lucretius and being astonished at the clarity of his vision despite the context of the times. It convinced me of one important thing: It is not all that hard to rise above the illusions, the myths, or the cruelties of the culture you live in. For example, in revolutionary days, we don't have to forgive the founding fathers of that time for the excuse that our society allowed slavery, and they could get a free pass on it too. It's the same these days, solders are not to be given a moral pass, just following orders, on the decision to go to war or resist it, when they are the ones who are most able to make the difference. They have to confront the moral decision no matter how many evil people claim that they have a higher duty to country than humanity itself. Then they may decide to go to war, or not, but only after that brave reflection.

Wrong, even the babble quotes your own god as acknowledging other gods. Whassup? You gods word not good enough for you? Or is it that like most godbots you ignore Exodus 12:12, Exodus 20:2-3 and Exodus 34:14

or how about
Psalm 82:1-2 - God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment: "How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked?

I'd rather entertain the idea of ET agents sending us coded messages. Why do you think Frank Drake and Carl Sagan developed the Arecibo message as a CETI experiment? To make dodos out of themselves?
Maybe you're a retard.
I like your optimism in that respect. I worked on adopting the SETI signal analysis program to my operating system (OpenBSD) some years ago. I was thrilled to work with them a bit and to be able to accomplish it. I keep hoping. I do believe they will succeed eventually.

LOL. Charles Darwin was a racist. There's no prove that all life arose from one common ancestor. I am not surprised that the evolutionist theories are collapsing. Atheist science defend Darwinism like a religion. What a big fraud! One Hoax after another. They are so quick to announce their fake evolution discoveries, but they are not so quick to expose their mistakes and disproven conjectures.
WOW There, there Benny remember to breath mate Good air in through the nose & bad air out through the mouth. I know another Charles you would really get alone well with Charles Manson He would love to meet a crazy little f*#ker like you.Mmm yummy So I wont say your god is a egotistical mass murdering loony if you don't say anything mean about Charles Darwin Okay :) Now you play nice Benny

A one and simple answer to this question, humans can never be God.
God is still God, that is why science is still lacking.

I'll agree with that. If you have malice or hatred for God, you have just about yielded the proof you deny as possible. You are saying that he does exits. Although it is not wrong to hate some of the terrible things that were done for the sake of the idea of God.

<quoted text>
You are wasting your time. GOD or his words can never be disproven.
But the problem is that the claim that the words in the bible are not God's words can't be disproven either. Besides that, multitudes of different meanings are ascribed to them by countless religious factions, so those have to be sorted out first.

You can not turn the bible upside down.
God is one. The bible mentioned Baals, Asherah, Dagon, etc, as sub gods, and God also warned the people of Israel not to worship those disgusting gods.

So you either didn’t read my post pr didn’t understand it, in either case well done for showing further evidence of your ignorance

It is not science that is lacking, it is you that is in denial yet you still manage to use science to tell the world that you believe science is lacking, as we already know, you are not only ignorant you are hypocritical
