Most of my arguments are based on my own completely original observations of geological information

All from the comfort of your armchair with none of the inconvenience of obtaining any qualifications in the subject, reading any real research or getting your hands dirty on any rocks.

The reult is that you spout nonsense about stuff you don't understand.

I don't agree with the prevailing opinion

It's not opinion, it's fact.

Re: So when does Biblical Inerrancy stand up to the objections?
Faith writes:

It's not a matter of proving it, Bible inerrancy stands against all objections because it denies them any validity.

The bible is right therefore there can be no valid objections to it.

How very Orwellian. Therein lies totalitarianism.

Perhaps I never was promised anything special.

None of us were.

That's progress though - the beginning of realising that we need to make the best of what we are and not invest so much into impossible fantasies. You've been unlucky to have been born in a sophisticated country with contradictory unsophisticated and very primitive beliefs.

You would have done better being born either in my Muslim village in the Atlas mountains where your beliefs wouldn't be challenged, or a 'nice' village in the Home Counties of England where your beliefs would be so flexible that they can't be threatened by anything.

Re: Again we disagree concerning evidence
Phat writes:

Finally, look at the many professionals who have degrees in Theology and Divinity and Philosophy who earned Doctorates in religious studies. Do you really think they dont believe?

Pretty much 100% of divinity and theology students are believers - or at least that's my experience sharing a flat with one. And what they learn is not what they preach - most believers would call what they teach heresy. I'm surprised they survive.

I guess im just puzzled why you alone (with a few others) concluded the way that you did.

quote:
According to sociologist Phil Zuckerman, broad estimates of those who have an absence of belief in a deity range from 500 to 750 million people worldwide.[1] Other estimates state that there are 200 million to 240 million self-identified atheists worldwide, with China and Russia being major contributors to those figures.[3] According to sociologists Ariela Keysar and Juhem Navarro-Rivera's review of numerous global studies on atheism, there are 450 to 500 million positive atheists and agnostics worldwide (7% of the world's population), with China having the most atheists in the world (200 million convinced atheists).[5]

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_atheism

As for how people 'conclude the way they do'... multiple reasons but in global terms I doubt the majority conclude anything, they're just brought up that way. Just like you were.

The rest ringo covered and I'm surprised you needed to ask, I mean, we've covered this stuff over and over again but you still ask the same questions. It's The Barrier isn't it?
