"Do you know that the biomass of just the insect world is 5 times the entire physical weight of all of human beings currently on the planet..."

Aside from the nonsensical nature of all your false factoids, hasn't it occured to you that all that was needed was a few eggs? and that almost all the life in the world perished?

The intelligence of retreads is sure on the decline.

"it’s an analogy"

No, it wasn't. It was an ignorant assertion.

"the point is that there is a reasonable explaination for a large number of fossils to be found in ancient riverbeds"

Yes there is one and only one explanation, and that is the flood and complete crustal break-up of the Earth.

Now go back to your games.

"You ignorance is showing."

He said to the mirror.

Study the nature of God before you try to describe his attributes. You know nothing.

I never argued the question with you at all. I posted one answer to the question that I pulled from some other website.

I have no interest in debating the question with you.

I wished only to point out how boring and unoriginal the question is.

"Did you know the handy fact that in Jesus’ time the majority of the population, including Jesus was illiterate? That people hired scribes to write down oral tradition."

Did you know that you are completely ignorant of all facts concerning God's word?

Did you know that the Hebrew scriptures were maintained by the most literate and dilligent people on Earth? Did you know that most of the new testament was written by the most literate, and educated person in the entire fertile crescent at the time?

Of course not, because you are ignorant.

No.. you didn’t miss it because it doesn’t and won’t exist. Doesn’t fit the agenda.

I find one thing interesting... anytime a thread comes up like this there are three or four guys who sound just like you preaching evolution to us poor misguided Christian creationists. You all preach from the same book because you were all force-fed it through public education whether it be k-12 or higher education. It’s boring and frankly, a bit too coincidental for my taste.

Why don’t you look into something other than the Scientific American for a change. Maybe some of these “wacky young earth creationist websites” aren’t as wacky as your liberal college professor (if you ever got that far. And to answer your question, no I didn’t).

You can spew all the nonsensical false factoids that you please, but they are all rubbish to an intelligent person.

Noah didn’t have to worry about insects, as you would know if you were a student of the Bible, or in any way knowledgable of entomology.

You make a fool of your self with each and every post.

Blah-blah-blah...

That doesn’t answer any of the charges. Or does it?

“The internet is for arguing with people who hold diametrically opposed viewpoints without resorting to violence when we hit our rhetorical brick walls.”

Is that what you’re doing here?

In answer to the question, you are correct. I will answer. gotta go to sleep tonight, but I won’t forget.

Didn’t mean to lump you in with Jay, but comparing creationists to the Taliban? Come on.

Thanks for the discourse.

pay attention to what they are finding... large amounts of fossils of different types of animals piled up in the same place and deposited at the same time

And yet somehow, never dinosaur bones and buffalo bones in the same pile. Why is that?

March 5th, 2009... I should have looked first.

If you’re point, as with Dan’s is to leave religion at the door when entering this site, you might have looked and realized the site is founded by a God-fearing Bible believing Christian before you picked a screen name.

You’re not here to find proof, you are here to argue and evangelize for atheism. Have fun! You’ll find a few to take the bait.

“Noah. I forgot my literal bible readings. sorry...Just a question too..do you know what the Christian bible is? What language(S) it was written in? Aramaic, Greek, Hebrew? or did God come down and write it himself?” [excerpt]
The Old Testament is written in Hebrew, the New in Greek.

The Stone Tablets were written with the finger of God.

“Did you know the handy fact that in Jesus’ time the majority of the population, including Jesus was illiterate?” [excerpt]
Silence, fool!

And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.

And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.

Luke 2:46,27


¶ And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.

And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all.

And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.

And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,

The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

And he closed the book, and he gave [it] again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.

Luke 4:14-20

Hey Dan7878787,

I just checked out your FR page and found this:
“let’s leave religion where it belongs - at home and in church. keep it to yourself.” [link]


Before spouting to much of that sort of thing on FR, you just might want to read this:

“The Old Testament was not written in Hebrew. It was translated into Hebrew from Aramaic and other earlier languages. FAIL NUMBER 1” [excerpt]
Which would be your Strawman #1

I never said that it was written in Hebrew.

“Stone Tablets written by the finger of God? PROOF? Evidence? or just your faith. FAIL NUMBER 2” [excerpt]
You don't learn very quick do you.

¶ And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.

Exodus 31:18



“Where, pray tell, does it say that he was literate. Stood up for to read IS NOT how The ARAMAIC is translated. It was translated as he stood to be read to in several languages and the meaning is he heard the reading. FAIL NUMBER 3.” [excerpt]
The Greek word ἀναγινώσκω is not a word that is used to describe what an illiterate person does with written text.

“He was shown a passage. Her did not read nor was it implied that he read the passage. According to the Bible. FAIL NUMBER 4” [excerpt]
All coming from a guy who can't keep Moses and Noah straight.

Sorry, the context says otherwise.

[JayRockin91:] The Old Testament was not written in Hebrew. It was translated into Hebrew from Aramaic and other earlier languages.

Since the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, this old liberal high criticism does not hold water. They (the DSS) predate the Peshitta Targumim by hundreds of years (in some cases) and are written primarily in Hebrew. And every Old Covenant Book is represented with the exception of Esther. They can be reckoned as contemporary to, or older than the earliest extant Aramaic texts.

The DSS make the oldest extent copies of the Old Testament Hebraic, *not* Aramaic.

Undoubtedly some parts of the Old Testament were Aramaic, those parts written in Babylon particularly, and the Hebrews proclaim that heritage. But there is no evidence that the entire Old Testament "was translated into Hebrew from Aramaic and other earlier languages."

[JayRockin91:] Where, pray tell, does it say that he was literate. Stood up for to read IS NOT how The ARAMAIC is translated. It was translated as he stood to be read to in several languages and the meaning is he heard the reading. (emphasis mine)

I would really like to see some evidence for an Aramaic origin for the Books of Luke/Acts. The idea that an educated gentile physician, writing a letter to a Grecian man residing in Greece, would write that letter in Aramaic is simply ludicrous to assume.

To further the absurdity of the thought, simply read the two books, where Luke will be found translating Hebrew and Aramaic names and locations for his dear Greek friend, Theophilus.

Every extant manuscript of note is in fact, in the Greek, and the whole notion is simply speculation made of whole cloth.

@Fichori:

I have no argument with you here, FRiend Fichori, rather that I agree with you. I just could not leave these points untested.

Looks like I missed out on all the fun.

I’m not sure whether our departed retread friend confused Noah and Moses, or whether it was a setup for that old joke about “how many animals did Moses put on the Ark.”

So, it was either stupidity, or junior high school level, possibly both. Beavis & Butthead time again, heheh heheh.

I guess Dan isn't familiar with the First Amendment so here it is Dan.....

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

So, Danny 7878787, why don't you take your fascist religion oppressing ideas and take a hike? This is a free country for the time being. If you don't like seeing religion practiced freely as the Constitution permits, move somewhere else that suits you better.

He did. Lizards grow their entire life which means Dinosaurs were probably really old lizards. Maybe when they got off the boat, when Noah was drunk and naked, they killed the ones they didn’t like. Maybe there are some still alive today.
