    That is you extending your label to someone else.

    It seems that we can also decide what to believe in science and history. If there wasn't disagreement in those areas then this forum might not exist.

    No we can't. Something is either scientifically and historically documented and accurate or it is not. If you choose to reject something that has been demonstrated to be objectively true, you're just wrong.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Do you know any scientists or historians who are claiming any evidence the Earth, and plant life, and day and night, all existed before the sun?

    Why would anyone be upset or outraged at this? If they believe in the bible, they shouldn't care what others think of it. If they are strong in their faith that is. So outrage would be a silly response.

    Scientists have held many false beliefs throughout the ages while history is seldom objective. Many different conclusions are drawn from the same event.

    Today, no. But that doesn't they once did or that their aren't many false beliefs out there now. Global warming would be one such example.

    The ages began "when" for "real" scientists..
    Most "real" scientists would say the 1500's and move on to something "real", like Science .

    Nowhere did I deny global warming. The point was that some scientists believe it to be true and others don't. Some of them have to be wrong.

    Please read and comprehend before responding.
