Re: True history of that shows there was never a Biblical Flood

My evidence is the Biblical dates then. Yours are the product of the fallen mind. End of subject.

So you have nothing.

Lets see, there are all the petroglyphs and cave paintings, all the civilizations that exited straight through the dates when the imaginary flood would have happened, the genetic evidence from before Adam that shows no interruption and replacement by Middle Eastern genotypes, the total lack of any world wide flood evidence within the last several hundred thousand years and the Bristle Cone Pine that is still alive today and also the Pando Aspen Clonal Colonies that are about 80,000 years old and the Lomatia Clonal Colony of Tasmania that has been going for over 40,000 years and the 13,000 year old Jurapa Oak and Old Tjikko that is over 9000 years old against two mutually contradictory fables found in the Bible.

Twelve continuously occupied cities
Here is a list of twelve cities that have been continuously occupied with nine occupied right through the imaginary flood without even noticing. There are many other sites, the Pyramids and other Egyptian Temple Complexes are great examples. The Egyptians were pretty much aware of floods and might well have noticed a world-wide one.

Re: Twelve continuously occupied cities
In my area I have a major cluster of archaeological sites that were occupied before, during, and after the purported flood. I even have mtDNA that spans across the "exact" date we have been given for the flood. And that mtDNA isn't a haplotype from the Near East!

Researchers throughout the world have similar findings.

The evidence shows that a worldwide flood at about 4350 years ago never happened. Belief in such a flood is contradicted by real-world evidence.

Re: True history of that shows there was never a Biblical Flood
It's all dating nonsense, not evidence.

The Bible is great evidence, being a written account [abe: based on oral reports handed down /abe] from people near the time of the event.

Re: Twelve continuously occupied cities
And the Greenland ice core goes back 100,000 years, with no evidence of a large missing section due to melting from a flood, and no abrupt discontinuity. This is evidence that NO flood covered Greenland in the last 100,000 years.

"Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind." Albert Einstein

I am very astonished that the scientific picture of the real world around me is very deficient. It gives us a lot of factual information, puts all of our experience in a magnificently consistent order, but it is ghastly silent about all and sundry that is really near to our heart, that really matters to us. It cannot tell us a word about red and blue, bitter and sweet, physical pain and physical delight; it knows nothing of beautiful and ugly, good or bad, God and eternity. Science sometimes pretends to answer questions in these domains, but the answers are very often so silly that we are not inclined to take them seriously. Erwin Schroedinger

Re: Twelve continuously occupied cities
So you not only reject the traditional understanding of the first verses of Genesis but the whole account of the Flood. Instead of reinterpreting the science to fit God's word you turn God's word into a lie.

Re: True history of that shows there was never a Biblical Flood
The Bible is great evidence, being a written account from people near the time of the event.

With regard to the flood, the Genesis account was not written by people who were even alive near the time of the event. Why would you even make that claim?

Re: True history of that shows there was never a Biblical Flood
My mistake. I was thinking of Abraham, and Shem who was still alive in Abraham's time, whose reports were of course oral, and handed down to Moses. Eyewitness account by Shem nevertheless, which Abraham would have heard, though they didn't write it into the scripture.

I've added a correction to that statement in the post

Anti-Flood Book on Grand Canyon by "Christians."
Kbertsche mentioned a book titled Grand Canyon Monument to an Ancient Earth (obviously playing off creationist Steve Austin's earlier book, Grand Canyon, Monument to Catastrophe.) I just reread the first few pages.

This book needs a rigorous debunking but if I'm going to do it that will have to wait. I have two complaints to make here:

  • They say nothing against the early Old Earth interpretations of the canyon, although they are supposedly Christians who should care that the Old Earth contradicts the Bible.

  • Then in discussing the Christian creationist opposition to the Old Earth interpretations, they indulge in the straw man canard about how such creationists make use of the products of science while criticizing science. That stupidity alone discredits the authors of this book.

I see I have notes in the margins for pages to come. I think I'll be rereading it for a while, if I can stomach it.

Re: Anti-Flood Book on Grand Canyon by "Christians."
This one is funny and also tragic. A person who thinks that the Cambrian is a layer claims that she could debunk a book written on those rocks by actual geologists who studied those rocks...

Re: True history of that shows there was never a Biblical Flood
Faith writes:

Once again Faith, that is simply not true. All of the items I listed exist. They are evidence. They are dated by a variety of methods including direct ring counting and genetics.

Faith writes:

The Bible is great evidence, being a written account [abe: based on oral reports handed down /abe] from people near the time of the event.

Again, that is simply not true. The Bible is a lousy witness with two different and contradictory fables. In addition it is most likely simply a poorly written copy of a far earlier myth from thousands of years before the Garden of Eden or the other Biblical Creation myth.

Also oral history is often very much exaggerated and fantasized. Oral history never trumps physical evidence.

And remember just one single example is sufficient to refute the nonsense of a Biblical Flood.

Re: Continental Drift is 'Off Topic'
But Percy, if I stick to the topic of the Worldwide Flood and its true Historical Dating, I can not talk about Continental Drift or Continental Movement which happened over 130 years later, according to the historical record. They are two different events, although related.

You suggested I NOT start a new thread on Continental Drift, and debating it with evolutionists who believe in the one inch per year theory, so how can I stick to the topic, when if I post Continental Drift it will be 'OFF TOPIC'

Please advise, this possible contradiction

Re: Misrepresentation of RCC by Faith
I believe it was actually Gregory the Great (a pope) who is first known to have equated the claim to be universal bishop with the antichrist.

Yes, I'd forgotten that, thanks for the reminder.

. Phocas' recognition of the Bishop of Rome as head of the Church should be understood in terms of the struggle for dominance between the Roman Bishop and the Patriarch of Constantinople. The establishment of a formal church hierarchy was already long complete by this point - now they were just fighting over who was in charge.

The title "Universal Bishop" seems to have been a major turning point. There was already deviation from the true doctrine before that and it kept on accumulating afterward. But all of this jockeying for position is utterly contrary to the spirit of Christ and deserves the Pope the title Antichrist. the Reformers were very serious about that title, they proved it in various ways from scripture that the Pope really IS the Antichrist the scripture says will come.
