    I can't see any way around it. Science does know that the continents were together one time in the past. If you believed in the bible would you not also deduce the same thing?[/QUOTE]
    Oh my! You are claiming that your God is a liar again.

    If you understood the nature of evidence you might see this.

    To claim that the bible and prophecy were wrong and that Jesus was wrong and the New Testament interpretation of old testament prophecy was wrong is no light matter. I would say you need to learn some respect.

    Claiming Mary was not a virgin when bearing Jesus, and that Paul the apostle was mentally ill, and that bible prophesy in many cases was not prophesy but fraudulently written after the fact, and that the writers of the NT were not honest etc are not facts.

    Regardless of whether I like your style of presentation, there are religious beliefs that describe Mary as a loose woman. Thus while professing to worship God, they reject the New Testament. I, however, do not believe they are right. But then there are those who do not believe Moses or the descendants of Jacob were taken captive in Egypt either, yet many do believe these things.

    i don't "claim" that the Bible is wrong. I can and have shown it to be wrong. And the Bible's prophecies tend to fail.

    Some reading material for dad:

    Some of them are facts. Some of them are reasonable explanations.

    A ten year pregnancy on the other hand is a myth.

    If you understood the nature of evidence you might see this.[/QUOTE] God never said anything about continents separating or dividing millions of years ago. The dividing mentioned in Genesis (which some interpret as including the dividing of the continents) was in the days of Peleg. Peleg was, by some accounts about 5 years old at the time of the tower of Babel. That was recent.

    Maybe find a thread for whining about baseless and foolish doubts.

    I have not read what dad thinks about this, but it is clear that within the context of those who call themselves Christians there are many opposing beliefs. Now if something is opposing another, it means one is right and the other is wrong. Or they are both wrong.

    Correct. God never said anything. You are conflating the Bible with God again.

    And Genesis is a book of myths.

    dad, I am ready to discuss my claims. I will probably have to continually post definitions of evidence for you.

    I think the following is cute, if not funny, although I laughed when I saw the cute-funny face of the chimpanzee. Regarding the "last common ancestor" of humans, "Scientists have been on the trail of the LCA for decades, and they still have not found it. But many are convinced that they have established enough information to make the hunt a lot easier. They think they know roughly when and where the LCA lived. They even have a reasonable idea of what it looked like and how it behaved." We have still not found the missing link between us and apes
    You gotta love this guy.

    You stated that Noah landed the ark on Pangea which would be the age of dinosaurs. Most modern mammals would not be there. So from what you have said Noah should have let the dinosaurs on the ark or did he not listen to god.
    So now you are saying that dinosaurs evolved from birds? Seriously? You also are saying the dinosaurs were there but did not get an invitation for the ark cruise ship? Why not?

    Of course you were smoking the hookah with the caterpillar down the rabbit hole?

    I can't see any way around it. Science does know that the continents were together one time in the past. If you believed in the bible would you not also deduce the same thing?[/QUOTE]

    You were the one that stated Noah landed on Pangea and the bible identified Pangea?
    And what do you mean by "the subsequent processes of the former different nature! Not by anything happening in this present nature." ? what new imaginative process are you talking about?
    What is the former different nature?

    So where did jesus get his y chromosome from? And paul may have been mentally ill with hallucinations and hearing voices.

    Because there are those claiming to believe in a book, or religious belief that may seem based on the same material somehow, but whose ideas oppose one another.

    The article you have a link to did a good job showing how as more evidence occurs we can refine our interpretation. That's what makes science such a powerful tool of discovery. The fact that we have not yet found the last common ancestor does not weaken the theory of evolution and the accumulating evidence as presented demonstrates that all of the new evidence supports evolution and no other explanation. Thank you for the link.

    And making up very bizarre and poorly crafted science fiction. I guess it can be called that even if there is no science involved. Maybe fantasy fiction is more accurate.

    Dinosaurs are not created in this world. They mysteriously came to exist outside of biblical claims.
