    Really? Can you take a moment and prove what’s so ignorant and shallow about these?

    "For “whoever would love life and see good days must guard his tongue from bad and his lips from speaking deception. Let him turn away from what is bad and do what is good; let him seek peace and pursue it." -1 Peter 3:11

    “But now you must put them all away from you: wrath, anger, badness, abusive speech, and obscene talk out of your mouth. Do not lie to one another. Accordingly, as God’s chosen ones, holy and loved, clothe yourselves with the tender affections of compassion, kindness, humility, mildness, and patience. Continue putting up with one another and forgiving one another freely even if anyone has a cause for complaint against another. Just as Jehovah freely forgave you, you must also do the same. But besides all these things, clothe yourselves with love, for it is a perfect bond of union.” - Colossians 3:8,9, 12-14.

    “Never be anxious about the next day, for the next day will have its own anxieties. Each day has enough of its own troubles.” -Matthew 6:34

    ““You heard that it was said: ‘You must love your neighbor and hate your enemy. However, I say to you: Continue to love your enemies and to pray for those who persecute you, so that you may prove yourselves sons of your Father who is in the heavens, since he makes his sun rise on both the wicked and the good and makes it rain on both the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those loving you, what reward do you have?" (Matthew 5:43-46)

    “Even a child is known by his actions, whether his behavior is pure and right.” -Proverbs 20:11

    Ah, now, I was exagerrating a little, I figure more
    than you likely ever will, that Xians are not a righteous
    bunch.

    BUT- I bet you place far more faith in what
    a Christian ( who says what you like), than any
    or all the researchers in the world who point
    out in immense and unarguable detail, that,
    say, the "flood" or six day poof are just stories
    and could not possibly be true.

    Now yiu are just being ridiculous. I already said this
    is good folk wisdom, and widely shared in different cultures around the
    world.

    Your six day poof and noahs ark though,
    that is a different matter.

    Silly fairytales for ignorant people, but, useful
    for keeping people away from a cult that demands
    such stupidity.

    A bit harshly phrased, yes, but accurate.

    What is your evidence that the Genesis creation account and the account of the events surrounding Noah's ark are "fairytales"?

    That you can seriously ask such a question says it all about
    the sort of 15th centuty ignorance it takes to maintain such
    beliefs.

    Here though is just one- well over a
    hundred thousand years' accumulation of
    ice in Antarctica-that falsifies both of those
    "fairy tales". (In parentheses as there are actually
    no fairies in the tales:D)

    To what peer reviewed scientific research are you trying to allude to?

    Are you actually unawste of this? It is about like admitting
    that you want "peer reviewed et" before you will believe
    in vokcanoes.

    Seriously you dont know that Greenland and Antarctic ice deeply predates
    ant genesis dates?

    You probably would rather not know, for obvious reasons.
    If you did, goigle could help you out. Or even yahoo,

    Keep them eyes shut, or all be lost!

    "That which can be claimed without evidence can be dismissed without evidence."

    Accordingly, consider your fatuous claims dismissed.


    Believe it or not, you can start questioning your claims of an absolute, incontrovertible truth. It's all up to you. I admit it's not an easy path but it's possible because many before you have succeeded.

    Well, your quote is great!

    You can provide zero for your silly god.
    Fatuous clains, yup.

    As for polar ice, i am not going to bother.

    Stay ignorant, it is your only way to keep your faith.

    Or no, just you cant pretend I cant back what I said-

    I am impressed that any adult could have managed to
    avoid ever hearing of polar ice, and how old it is.

    You're still not making any sense. How do any of those prove God could not create the Earth or our universe?

    Was that the topic? Who knew.

    Anyway, of course not.

    All I had in mind was that
    genesis is not an accurate account.
    As variously demonstrated, polar ice
    being a simple one to understand.

    If you already knew that, then fine, if not,
    well, it is you needs the testing.

    How do you mean? What exactly did Genesis get wrong and what concrete evidence explicitly shows this?

    Polar ice is far older than the "flood" in genesis. If you cannot
    work out the implications for genesisyou cannot, and that is
    too bad for you.

    I already linked you to several of the peer reviewed articles
    you asked for. You are just being willfully ignorant,
    and tiresome.

    You're not making any sense. Where do any of these concretely establish the date of the Noahchian Flood and then contrast this with the verified age of the polar ice caps?

    I notice that is one of you favourite lines to
    use on people, psychological projection
    though it may be.

    Other than that, plz consider that you delivered
    a great knock -down gotcha question, and that
    you 've had the last word.
