Why is it that you people are completely incapable of actually dealing with and responding to the evidence and issues I raise rather than just scoffing at and insulting them?
Omni's Umpteenth Law of Internet Debate: The first side to say "you people" is losing.
There was no flood. All your claims depend on a worldwide flood, date certain, for which there is no evidence.
We people don't buy the flood; why should we buy the cartoonish fantasies you've based on it?
It is you who diminishes the achievements of antiquity by claiming only fantastical, deity-bestowed (and later removed) brain powers can explain them. We acknowledge their intellectual prowess and persistence.
Tell me: How were the great cathedrals built in Europe beginning a thousand years ago without modern engines and drills?
NB: Religion probably did play a role is the massive constructions of antiquity--but by providing the necessary labor specializations within a cohesive hierarchical society, not magic fairy dust.
Have you ever been to an American wedding? Where's the vodka? Where's the marinated herring?!
Real things always push back.
