so explain how a natural geological event was transmuted to a "god inspired act" in the story of the "great flood" & that's just for starters.

How so. Read the title again. God was supposed to have created the great flood, yet we know that was down to geological events...so again, where is it off topic - god from science..really?

ID, I read and saw a bunch of statements and the spelling of statement is different than the spelling of evidence. I personally believe that those words are not synonyms.

It's NOT ABOUT THE FLOOD! It's about GOD. Did he or did he not cause the great flood & where is the proof if he did?

OR am I misunderstanding the thread title in any way?

Been through all those long before you posted that link. IT still opens up questions! AND questions that you won't allow, so where to next?

We talk about the Bible and if it's real and true or not, as to the people who wrote it, and when it was written.

Ya know, whats in the link I posted.

Here's a very valid question & on topic!

People like myself that constantly search for knowledge so that we can ascertain for ourselves on what to believe, were labelled as heretics & executed in all manor of ways just for asking questions.

How can we, as human beings with the teachings from the various religions accept that God exists with the history of those that taught?

LOL. This is going to sound hard to believe, but ID does start interesting threads. Unfortunately, he won't allow any questions that can "knock" his faith.

To me (I am not an apologetic so if this is not what you are looking for I will not post in this thread again) the bible is compilation of stories written by men, no matter who or what 'inspired' the book, it was still written by human fingers. None of it was burned into the pages by any god. So to me, if anything... it is definitely a good guide book.

Personally I think most of the bible is a retelling of older stories.
Babylonian texts also have flood stories, and stories similar to Adam and Eve (Adamu being the first man created) and Babylonian texts reflect older information from Ancient Sumer.

If anyone tried to write something like it in this day and age he or she would be medicated to high heaven and deep hell because by society's standard, if you claim to talk to god, you are a certifiable nutjob.

I'll ask this once, and only once, what does the last 5 posts here have to do with the topic of this thread?

You might want to think this over VERY carefully before you answer.

well for a start. you'd better state outright at the beginning of your threads the exact topic you wish to discuss.

This one: Evidence of God from Science.. has had several questions with regards to that science & god which you have stated are off topic.

Without a specific outline, no one can reasonably answer you.

I don't recall anything about the Great Flood in the link? Enlighten me. I have just reread the link for the 4th time and see not a thing in it about the flood.

You are angry with me. This I very much understand. I wish you wasn't but then again I will not be bullied--in any way, shape or form.

I told you that my Faith is not blind. I have good reason for telling you this. Steve the science man has passed on a lie as I see it. It is his right to believe in the lie but nevertheless I have posted the truth in this matter. I have no reason to reckoncile with either of you personally. But I do have reason to tell the truth in the matter of the Bible. It is a matter of my Faith and it is indeed not blind.

Both Steve and yourself have the right to disagree with me. Even if I could I would not take that right from you. I understand that science needs to be disagreed with for the truth of said matter to see the light of day. Musicman had a great point if science is all we are to talk about in this thread then science will always win the day. You all have had that "privilege" for a very long time now as I have come to understand. But the Bible and indeed Faith also have science and for you all to ignor that and mock it without even caring for the one who holds that view is going just a tad bit to far.


I'll ask one more time because Im a Christian man and I believe in redemption with all my mind, heart, and soul. What does that 5 posts I talked about have to do with this thread? Please think carefully before the you all answer for the post that you placed here.
