history, as told in the scriptures, is important in that it tells what has taken place.

And how do we know which scriptures to believe? There are many different stories, you know, and most of them contradict each other.

Rather than having done any such research, you're simply repeating what others (who have done no such research) have said.

You don't know what research I have or haven't done. In fact you know nothing about me. So stop making such baseless assertions.

Given that God is infinite [...]

This is not a given at all. That's just another baseless assertion, or if it's based on anything, it is the scripture you mentioned before. In that case I repeat my question: how do you know that your particular scripture is the truth?

We can explore my twisted "multi-viewpoint" logic, if only you would reference your references for us.

You can do your own research: just google "creation myth". The very first hit takes you to a wikipedia article where diverse creation myths are presented. One involves vomit, another three suns. Of course anybody can get their knickers in a twist to try and reconcile all those disparate stories in the light of an "infinite God", but I trust you are not going to make a fool of yourself.

That response actually tells the whole story.

Well, you see, I'm thick. So why don't you spell it out for me? And when you're done, maybe respond to my argument proper?

Re: Falling came after the fall.

With God all things are possible.

Then how on earth can you accept the God-story as an explanation for anything? If anything is possible, then nothing is certain. That's why God as an explanation is completely and utterly useless. It boggles the mind how anyone cannot grasp this simple point.
