Please, just explain one thing to me.

Why is it that virtually the entire scientific establishment, many of whom worship the same god that you do, accepts the accuracy of everything that you are arguing against?

if science disagrees with the Bible then the science is wrong and all people have free choice what they want to believe. if they want to disobey God and follow science then they are wrong.

Then you need to stop posting in our science forums.

Seriously.

The science forums here are evidence based. If you are only interested in debating the accuracy of the bible, please stick to the religious forums here.

Your response doesn't answer the question.

In fact, it is virtually the entire scientific community. Those who reject it are a small minority, around 5%. I'll happily provide evidence of this if you agree to provide evidence for the "great number" that you claim.

The question is why would so many of them accept the accuracy of what you reject. That they have a choice to follow your god or not doesn't explain why they chose what they did.

What kind of god would I want to serve? Well, one that is consistent with known facts about the real world and that has evidence to support its existence would be a start.

I know you think you already have, but you haven't. All you said was they have the choice to follow god, but you haven't explained why they choose as they do. Let me explain.

The scientific establishment might accept it because that's what all the evidence says. That's obviously not what you think. They might accept it because Satan has fooled them. They might accept it because they are tools of Satan. They might accept it because they're stupid and don't understand the lack of evidence.

Why do you think they accept what you reject?
