    Sorry, no real prophecy fulfilled. You are confused at best. No "scientific accuracies" in the Bible either. You do not get to count the verses that look like they might be right if you do not count the verses that are terribly wrong.

    And I am here because Christians can be a real problem and threat to this country. Did you forget the riot and attempted coup already? That was done by a mob of mostly Christian nationalists.

    Radiometric dating would not have been affected by the flood. And no, there is no evidence of the flood. You, like almost all creationists, have no clue as to what is and what is not evidence.

    Now getting back to radiometric dating, how would a flood affect it?

    Yes, that is an interesting phenomena.

    One of the interesting articles of belief underlying atheism that gets repeated a lot it seems is the insistence, even a shuttered, dogmatic insistence, that death of the mortal body has to be the final real death. But it can lead to some illogical thinking when they attempt to apply this assumption (unprovable) to scripture predicated on God's existence, where the very definition of God to begin with includes (by definition) of course the supernatural (non-natural events and so on) and that death of the mortal body for example is only "sleep" or being "asleep" (to use the terms repeatedly used throughout the common bible, including by the Christ).

    Once again you ignore the problem that the religious are in the U.S.. And please, when you base your belief system on irrational beliefs you are the last ones that should ever accuse others of "illogical thinking".

    So far you have not been able to debate properly. Instead you have relied almost purely on strawman arguments. Do you think that you can actually support your claims properly for once?

    You've stated your speculative belief to me many times now. Why keep restating it over and over?

    So you believe that your god exist but you don't? That is irrational.

    You are here at RF because of Christian nationalists? How many have identified as nationalists here? You are in the wrong forum. Would you like some recommendations for the inheritors of 4Chan, and the Dark Web?

    Amazing! I did not claim that. Christian Nationalists are an example of the damage that people that abuse the Bible can do to our country. Are you trying to have poor reading comprehension? It appears that way. It is as if you try to put the worst interpretation possible on posts at times.

    You really really need to try harder. This was an extremely pathetic post on your part.

    You didn't write "I'm here for Christian nationalists"? You most certainly did.

    You really need to work on your reading comprehension since I did not claim that. Go back, read the entire post and try to read it in context.

    You are making a " The Bible says there is no God" type of error.

    But the Bible does say, "There is no God".

    Correct, at least 15 different times. Then by the "logic" you have been using in your argument against me by quote mining my post there is no God.

    I tell you what, if you openly admit that there was no God, which would mean that Jesus is not God nor the Son of God, and all other variants of that, I will say that my post meant what you want it to mean. Or perhaps you made an error of the same sort that quote mining those fifteen verses of the Bible would be.

    One should never quote mine because the tactic can be used against the quote miner.

    Then why did you quote mine regarding the origin/inspiration of the Bible?

    Because you quote mined my post. I did it to illustrate your error.

    Wow!

    Your OP was a quote mine.

    Wow!

    Are you trying to be silly? The OP of this thread had no quote mines in it.

    No, if I was trying to be silly, I'd tell you the irony of giving my Congressional payments to my sex therapist, so I can get stimulated.

    Regarding your misinterpretation of the Holy Bible, your guess is as good as a mine.

    LOL, you really do not know how to use that phrase.

    Where have I misinterpreted your book of myths?

    We can start with "myths" and the definition of "myths".

    An event that never happened that has a clear story made up a out it.

    The fact that there are myths in the Bible is not a misinterpretation.
