If you don't mind analogies, it looks to me like you're going 35 mph in the fast line and are complaining that people are blowing their horns at you.
I think everyone is curious how engaging in discussion with you constitutes scientific study of the supernatural. Myself included. You seem to be personalizing the debate. Discussing how to scientifically study the supernatural shouldn't require personal testimonies of faith.
No one here wants Christians to lose their faith, but some Christians claim their religious beliefs are scientifically valid. This website examines that claim.
The above ontological example models the zero premise to BB theory. It does so by applying the relative uniformity assumption that the alleged zero event eventually ontologically progressed from the compressed alleged sub-microscopic chaos to bloom/expand into all of the present observable order, more than it models the Biblical record evidence for the existence of Jehovah, the maximal Biblical god designer. -Attributed to Buzsaw Message 53
Moreover that view is a blatantly anti-relativistic one. I'm rather inclined to think that space being relative to time and time relative to location should make such a naive hankering to pin-point an ultimate origin of anything, an aspiration that is not even wrong.
Well, Larni, let's say I much better know what I don't want to say than how exactly say what I do.
Apparently the question of whether the Flood (and only the Flood) is hyperbole is off-topic in the thread - even though the OP claims that it quite definitely is. It seems odd enough to single out one story alone as being off-limits, but odder still to rule that a claim in the OP cannot be discussed.
I think this must be the most bizarre ruling by an Admin that I've seen.
The 2 problems I am having at the moment is that IamJoseph is claiming that there is no dabate about the time of the authorship of the Hebrew Bible (even though I provided a 3000 word fully sourced post describing the debate) and his definition of what writing is.
It appears that the only writing he will accept as writing is Paleo Hebrew, Hebrew and anything that came after Hebrew.
AdminPD is having experiencing computer problems, but perhaps AdminPhat will weigh in.
This won't help, but let me say that IamJoseph has never been able to provide support for his positions, and he has proven immune to moderation. My approach has been to exclude him from threads that he begins to disrupt, but you're in a one-on-one, so I have no answers.
