    You really should read the Adam and Eve myth some day. The serpent was the only honest one in the story.

    Re divers flood stories the essence of
    being a " there are no coincidences " believer
    is to ignore anything that does not match.

    The essence of debating with nonsense
    " successfully" is to drop a claim then
    disappear for a few weeks.

    I believe it does not match our reality. We don't have any talking reptilians. We also don't have dinosaurs but we accept that they existed because of the evidence left behind. I accept the Bible as evidence because it is God telling the story.

    I believe that I know but RF rules prevent me from saying that I actually know.

    I believe it says something about you that you prefer to believe the trickster rather than God.

    But there is no evidence that there even is a God.
    AND, if there is, why would he tell tales
    that are so plainly not true?
    I mean, seriously, Noah's ark?

    You have that backwards. I believe that if God exists he is not a liar.

    You people that believe that the Bible is literally true believe that God is a liar. And I can prove that. You probably do not understand this because you lack an education in the sciences.


    I will ask this question again: Do you believe that there was a Flood of Noah? If you do then you, not me, are calling God a liar.

    Ha. You only have to show Adam appeared to
    be a young man the instant he came into being.

    Same with millions of years embedded earth age

    Its omohalos, embedded age! Not a lie.

    Omphalos is still a deliberate attempt to deceive. But I do love me some Last Thursdayism in the morning.

    So God was lying to make Adam as an adult.
    Don't be silly.

    No, the whole omphalos argument is silly. In the myth we do not know if Adam had a belly button or not. Claiming that he had one or did not have one is an unjustified and indefensible claim. It really does not matter since it would make no difference to either Adam or Eve if they had belly buttons since they never knew what caused them. But to make the world with a false history is a totally different matter.

    Thanks for making my point. You'll never understand the scriptures without the holy Spirit.

    So wrong. You will never understand the story when you put a false lens in front of it.

    Tell me, who told the truth?

    God stories by a man one self hu man.

    Lives on stone one mass sealed earth.

    Is one self a theist.

    Lots of one self man men agreed upon same thesis.

    A large man male group agreed on one same thoughts satanism science.

    Human thoughts. Conscious self one human. The theist. Not God thoughts. Thoughts how to convert God.

    Claiming falsely to speak on behalf of what he thought about.

    Everything existed.

    His thoughts did not own existence.

    What a man group scientist lies about

    He is the theist about why planet earth one mass exists.

    Yet if it did not exist his human consciousness would also not exist.

    God the body did not tell you. You self advised as a theist. A human man.

    The origin of man lying.

    Theism.

    Then he built machine. Pretend God.

    Yet it owned no reaction.

    Man creator reacts machine then claimed power of God by reaction.

    God never told him. God was not reacting

    He researched past history of changes to God. Put natural man thoughts where no man in life existed.

    His first act of evil.

    Placing man science thoughts before self man existence encoded machine feedback AI speaking voice. So he thought it a God when it was man science theism.

    Only hear speaking of voice unnaturally in brain chemical change.

    Radiation extra effect. To hear voice and see images recorded in atmospheric transmitting body.
