    He could conjure up whatever genes he might need.

    Why are genes being discussed? Humans have genes, therefore God must have genes? Isn't that backwards?

    Most all living things have genes, does God have all those genes? At what point does God become a metaphysical power? He is a physical shape shifter?

    Which means he is a she - and normally, human reproduction, requires genetic pairing from two, not by binary fission

    Unable to find any published papers on god reproduction (I'm calling Cowpat on the swan and like stories)

    Of course but we're just messing with the fundamentalist

    He won't know silly, he only knows how to ban people who make him look like a fool.

    Correction: God knows how to make people who ban others, look like a fool.

    I assume you are talking about yourself. How exactly have you, "made God look like a fool."

    Have you considered the reason you get banned is primarily for that reason: you're trying to make people foolish. Why don't you stick to the truth? It's easier than lying.

    I don't make people who are serious about actually debating look like fools because they are not, people who want to learn with me.

    You don't obviously, and have called me a liar out of the blue. Why not debate instead of calling people a liar?

    It sounds like you're upset about being moderated recently. Perhaps you could take the matter up with me in a private conversation or, if you prefer, in the Site Feedback or Open Government forum. Your whines about evil moderators are off-topic for this thread.

    How about you debate me? Maybe about that debate video that showed you how to debate. What is the point of creating a thread starting a debate for "evidence" that God exists, when you know fine well there is no answer. 1000 posts of pointlessness.

    Errr, that's kind of what a debate is: a discussion where people present different points of view.

    I'll give it a go.

    There are 2 creation stories of man in the bible maybe we can get to the bottom of it by studying and sharing views on the subject. The "Adam and Eve" story is not exclusive to the bible so we can move in that direction if you like?

    When you wrote you had made God look like a fool. Would you like me to bang it out again for you?? You're also a thief!! You take arguments that aren't yours and attempt to make them your own.

    Do you have any thoughts of your own?? You cannot even build your own case from which to debate from.

    JamesR doesn't know "the" answer. He has a viewpoint. And, being rational, always attempts to be open to new information that could change his mind.

    He offered those who claim to have evidence a place to present it and have a dialogue about that evidence.

    Frogger, I suspect you are mistaken.

    In post 385, I see DW4 suggesting that JamesR is the "he who bans people", not God.

    Agreed. There are two independent stories, written by two different authors.

    Genesis 1 (and Genesis 2:1) was written by the person we now refer to as the E author. They wrote it as a metered poem, likely intended to be recited or sung. In it the author refers to God as Elohim. It describes the creation of the universe and contains the seven-days story, where God created everything in six days and rested on the seventh. In this story, animals were created before man.

    Genesis 2 (2:2 and on) was written by the J author. It was written as plain prose, no meter. In it the author refers to God as Yahweh, and creates man before the animals. It also talks about the Earth only, nothing about the rest of creation.

    Not surprising, since the Old Testament came from at least four discernible sources.

    I think it was written by Adam.

    Moses is attributed to writing Genesis, I have never heard of your explanation. Have you got a source?

    As for your last sentence, why not create a thread?
