Sorry, unlike religion, science offers real answers, and real answers cannot be learned by "brief" explanations. You have a few decades of studying worth to do before you will have seen half the information for any scientific theory.

Wow! you sure have a way of twisting words around. You still havn't stated where your info. came from? Proof is important to back up your claims.

<quoted text>Ummm..the Naochian flood was in the time of humans in the myth..

do try to keep up, dear...
There was no "the Naochian flood"
There was Noah's Flood.

And now you agree that there is evidence of a world wide flood you just need to tack on the typical few billion years.

<quoted text>No, it all needs to be underwater at the same time.

I can lay down in a wading pool and get wet all over by rolling around. At no time would I be completely covered in water.

And, to make it worse, if you want to claim one that involved people it has to be within the last million years. At no time in the last million years has the whole world been underwater. In fact at no time in the last billion years has the whole Earth been underwater.

In other words, at no time since when there has been land based animal life has the whole Earth been underwater.
"In other words, at no time since when there has been land based animal life has the whole Earth been underwater"

We have human eye witnesses that claim other wise. You have ...... Oh ya a few more billion years.

<quoted text>They tried to counter the idea with the impact of asteroids hitting the oceans, and throwing fish and such that are found fossilized hundreds of miles inland, but it didn't whole water...the evidence was to strong.

I think they have pretty well conceded the fact that the earth was indeed covered with water at one time.
But not the Topix fools.

Your science dated one end of a rock 500 million years older then the other end. No Christians involved just your gods.

Noah did build an Ark and then the world was flooded and everything was more or less killed.

<quoted text>Yes, land gets flooded, but none were simultaneous on a global scale. None.
Funny I could have sworn that a world wide flood was described in the Bible.

Who to believe?

The Bible that has 2500 prophecies where 2000 have been fulfilled 100%
Or
KittenKoder who can barely get her name right.

I'll have to pounder this one.

I can tell you this a hundred times a day from now until the Sun stops shinning and you still would not get it.

So then you are claiming to know how your god did things. That's sort of ... arrogant, and insulting to your god.

There has NEVER been any well attested example, event, occurrence, happening, appearance, or case of magik on the earth...at any time.

There is no supernatural. the supernatural and magik are folk tales and myth.

I have no idea why, or even if Johansson or any other reputable scientists would want to be even SEEN in a fundie Christian church with a bunch of hack creationist liars piling on to him, doing the Gish Gallop at full speed.
I know that _I_ certainly would have better things than to give "you guys" an ounce of credibility by even acknowledging your existence, much less actually debating you.
<quoted text>
The DETAILS of the human evolutionary path (and ALL of evolution) change gradually as new knowledge becomes available. And with new technology and the Internet, knowledge is coming fast and furious now,
Welcome to the world of science. Must be a scary thing to fundamentalist Christians who absolutely depend on there being 3 or 4 simple truths they can hang unto for dear life in a fast-paced, "demon-infested" world.
But there is absolutely NO CONTROVERSY in science that evolution in general happened and continues to happen, and also that modern homo-sapiens evolved gradually out of earlier proto-human species.
And sorry, Bible-lovers, but everything in modern-day science points to the fact that there were never any two "first humans" whether named Adam and Eve or anything else -- nor could there have ever been, with one species population gradually evolving into the next one.
The DNA evidence alone demolishes this Bible myth.
What part of the multi-gigabit code, smaller than any manmade storage device, are you speaking of as evidence against "Bible Myth? DNA coding is very sophisticated and requires a lauguage convention. There are only read heads in a cell. If what is known about it today was known by Darwin, he would have never wrote Origin! A cell is the most complex micro-machine known. My word!

Using the cell as anti-creation evidence is a mighty poor place to start. Ever seen a blueprint of a cell? It uses a good part of a gym wall to map out. A machine does not blindly and mindlessly self-create. When one sees a 747 fly by it's easy to assume Boeing made it. At the same moment the evolutionist see's a bird fly by and says it has no creator, chance and time made it. Contradictory to me. You look at your computer and have no doubt that man made it, using eyes that are just as complex you say came about by self-directed mindlessness! That my friend is not sceintific at all. Such belief is faith based, so please don't judge or stereotype me for getting that biology is complex and uses cell structures that I beleive require intelligence. To instantly switch paradigms is your business not mine.

Reminds me of the bible "prophecies," and "prayer."
