ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN

We debate origins of the Universe, life, Earth, humans, religion, atheism, using common sense, evolution, cosmology, geology, archaeology, and other sciences, to repel biblical creationism and other religious beliefs.

I wouldn't let Larry Rilea get to you if possible Andrew. He's a semi-theist in disguise and is making friends all over the place. (I was told a rebuttal I made to one of his facile arguments in trying to prove a creator was "unintelligent")

So look just ignore him.

P.S My mum bought me a bible recently (I'm 28 so I got to choose my own, I requested one with translations from the Greek. Now I've been told to stop annoying here by pointing out the inconsistencies and odd things as well as scientific illiteracy like talking donkeys (Numbers 22:28 ) Zombies invading Jeusalem (Matthew 27:52) , Moses committing murder and getting away with it. (Exodus 2: 11-15) God creating light/dark, and morning and night on Earth (Genesis 1:3-5) before creating stars (Genesis 1:14-20) - if this is the divine word of god, how come he didn't know the sun was a star? - or that the earth orbits it and not the other way around as in 2 kings 20:1, where God makes the sun move backwards ten degrees. Now that's quite a trick. All at once, the earth stopped spinning and then reversed its direction of rotation. Or maybe the sun traveled around the earth, a belief made more comprehensible if this book was written by people not gods. Similarly I'm in trouble for suggesting the doctrine of the Trinity was written in the 16th Century (1 John 5: 7-8) (No Greek manuscript prior to this date contains this description, highly suggestive it was knocked up in a monastery for order probably in German or Holland and entered the bible when it was translated into English for the KJV)

So, yes anyway - The bible - a fantastic recourse for atheism. Use it. ;-)

I just said that you shouldn't let me catch you. ;) Maybe I'll be distracted talking to the main course.

Welcome to the Douglas Adams Fangroup. I think you may be too young to imbibe Pan Galactic gargle Blasters though. Don't let me catch you.

Welcome to A|N. It must be a challenge having to communicate with family who look down on you. If my friends saw my yt vids, they would also call me militant, but I try to be as calm as possible when dealing with Christians.
