Do you believe in the bible's creation story, or do you believe in evolution? Things don't evolve much in 6,000 years.
    Right, and Noah lived to be 600 years old, and Goliath was 9 feet and change tall, and Methuselah lived even longer than Noah, all that from a time before the base ten numbers were even thought of.

    Do you know why the number 40 appears so often in the Bible? It's because it was translated from a word that meant "many."

    Biblical math is to be taken with a grain of salt.

    Lol, I think you proved my real point anyway. The book was written by people who hadn't even developed a good system of math and is filled with cute little stories. The most you could say is that you don't accept the literal meaning of the bible and believe in evolution.

    It's very obvious that 2 million years aren't missing between Adam and Eve and the time of jesus.

    If you'd like to make some arguments instead of crappy little one liners, I'll be here.
    I am serious. I liked my little one liner, and I don't care where you are. Don't tell me what I can or cannot believe and remain logically consistent. I can make a logically consistent argument for the casting of chicken bones to divine the future.

    You're on a debate forum, so yes, I will tell you if you're being logically consistent or not.

    If I told you I was a christian that didn't think jesus or the bible is significant, wouldn't you tell me I'm being logically inconsistent?

    You're on a debate forum and refuse to even support your position or form any arguments.

    You're on a debate forum too, and the topic is a 1.8 million year old skull. It is possible to believe in the Bible and evolution and remain logically consistent. At some point I'll take that on in the religious forum, but not here, and not today just because you demand it. I operate on my schedule. You operate on yours. When I have the time necessary, I'll take it up with you, if you'd like.

    I'm sorry, I didn't change the topic, but you and mak had been droning on for a while talking about jesus stuff, so I decided to correct you on your vastly incorrect statements.

    I didn't drone on at all. I have two, count 'em, two posts on this thread prior to your comments, and both were offered in a light hearted manner. If you want to correct my vastly incorrect statements, you'll have to do it in the appropriate forum with me, and when I have the time to devote to such a topic. Bring it up again (I'm sure) in the religious forum, and if I have the time, you can correct my vastly incorrect statements.

    So he can get dinged for not accepting your little belief system? Psh. This seems to be a dodge to avoid criticism and go elsewhere to be "protected."
