    "The atmosphere can only hold a limited amount of water. "
    Well, that's all we agree on.

    I presented evidence for the Flood, nothing else.

    As for the Exodus...lack of evidence is not proof. It never is, only to the biased.

    Let's go over your claims one at a time. You did a Gish Gallop and nothing the chief flaw in it is all that it takes to refute it. I explained why you are not even wrong, which is worse than being wrong. You have no scientific evidence for your beliefs. Did you miss the post on scientific evidence?

    The context was why do you (all) think the bible is under attack?

    If it is your faith, and your faith is under attack, why would I not think you are not when you are defending something that the rest of us are not interested in defending.

    No, you didn't. You posted claims that were unsubstantiated and probably wrong.

    Let's take baby steps. You need to learn what is and what is not evidence before you can post any.

    And I did not even bring up Exodus here. But of course you are wrong again in your claim about a lack of evidence. A lack of evidence can prove an event did not happen.

    Working backwards, what is the distinct proof from the earth-flood has supernatural causes without referring to the bible?

    I didn't say that! Grief!

    I said limited....but it was enough to provide a greenhouse effect, for Adam and Eve to live naked comfortably.

    It is obvious. We can calculate the maximum amount of water the atmosphere can hold and it would be nowhere near enough to do the job. And let's try to concentrate on one myth at a time.

    No, I am not. The problem is that you know so little that a genuine offer to help you looks like arrogance. I am not saying that you are not smart enough to learn. I am merely pointing out the obvious, that you do not even understand the concept of evidence. To me you look arrogant for posting nonsense and refusing to even try to learn.

    Whats the connection?

    I cant read your full post to get the context of point one. It will take me an essay and a half to actually read everything instead of glosing over it. Thats why I make sections when I reply so i can go through each paragraph at a time. I cant do that all in one gump.

    That being said, simple question. Without using the bible as a foundation, name an event that prooves distinctly supernatural claims.

    You listed natural. What about supernatural?

    Without the bible.

    I should be able to come to a god-conclusion just by studying science and the abrahamic god at that. I dont.

    Without the bible, how can someone see the abrahamic god in a chain of events that existed long before people wrote about their theories and myths on how the earth and life started?

    I cut it off intentionally. Again. How does this connect to the supernatural?

    Work backwards.

    Without the bible (so take out the last half of your post), explain how I can see the abrahamic god in these random earth events?

    Outside of syncronicity, build that connection that scientists missed.

    Which is good: IF it was actually from a GOD? This would only STRENGTHEN the bible's claims.

    The fact the claims get WEAKER AND WEAKER? Proves the bible is not from any god or godlike being.

    Ooops! It appears the god of the bible was kinda dumb...

    ... and did not even understand where the sun went at night.

    One more response on this. Others too have noted your general lack of education and thought That you were a list cause without thousands of dollars worth of education. I am more optimistic than that. I feel that it you learn the basics that you can go on to understand how and why that you are wrong.

    That if anything is the opposite of arrogance.

    I think it's a lost cause, @Subduction Zone. Such a shame, too. Most of them at least try to provide evidence.:shrug:

    My way of looking at it is that if I did not try to help them to learn that would be arrogant.

    Though you may be right. There have been only a few times where I did get creationists try to learn what is and what is not evidence and when it became obvious to them that my claims about evidence were correct they ran away. Still who knows how that affected them years down the road?

    It looks like the part of the pdf article about the massive animal extinction event all reference a single book, is that correct?
