There is biblical evidence of genuflecting.

Not in the New Testament church, there isn't...

Peter set the example for the church...And what are you guys doing with it??? You are trashing the scripture, the words of God by bowing to another man and calling it good...

Now, bowing to another man is not good? Showing respect to another is a bad thing? Maybe in your church of one.
