[on the age of the Earth]

What difference will it make if it one trillion or one billion years old? How can a man or a woman be so arrogant to said I do not believe in a Creator, like some of the people who claim that there is no God and calling themself athiest.

So stop denying Odin's existence already, Chrustians.

Because there is the possibility for both, a creator or no creator.
If there is a creator there would be still this question that has to be answered:
"How was the creator created?"

So, even though the posibility for the existence of a creator exists (however not according to the biblical story of creation, but rather as someone/something that was before Big Bang) it wouldn´t solve many fundamental questions, but just shift them one level higher.

I don't know, what difference does it make to you? Tell us.

"How can a man or a woman be so arrogant to said I do not believe in a Creator"
Reading comprehension problem. Believing or not believing something is a separate concept from arrogance.

Applying the usual meta-ethical perspective to scripture, the conclusion presented is that the god of scripture is a chaos creature.

Corollary to this conclusion is the stipulation that the god of scripture is not capable of creating anything, and any creator, real or imagined, must be another [entity] entirely.

What difference do it make if all every fundie stopped learning the grammar in the third grade?

How can a man or a woman be so stupid to said there is a giant man with a long white beard who lives on clouds like some people who claim there is an invisible man and calling themselves christianists.

A lot.

"How can a man or a woman be so arrogant to said I do not believe in a Creator, like some of the people who claim that there is no God and calling themself athiest."

If you want arrogance, get a mirror.

It's called "Thinking by themselves"

I do not believe in a Creator. I am not too arrogant to consider your counter-evidence, so let's have it already.

The first sentence shows an impressive level of insight. Why worry about how old the earth is, when we've got the far more important issue of how long it's going to remain inhabitable?

The second, however, indicates that Jill has never met a non-Christian in her life. I actually pity her--once she enters the real world, she's going to have quite a rude awakening!

I believe there is a creator who formed the entire universe, and that the creator holds me in high regard. Those atheists are so damned arrogant.

Being wrong by a factor of a thousand? Or a bloody million if you're using long-scale, potential confusion over which is a second reason why you should really use scientific notation when discussing this sort of thing. (The first being you might have a slightly greater chance of having a fucking clue what the real difference is between 1e6 and 1e9 rather than "million" and "billion")

Um...those people would be atheists, so you can't exactly compare them with atheists.

Because, by definition, people who don't believe in gods are atheists.

How can anybody be so arrogant that they claim to have personal knowledge about any theoretical creator?

It's a question of evidence. There is no evidence that there is a god. No. The Bible does not prove itself.

You produce the evidence and you will have believers flocking to your door.

"like some of the people who claim that there is no God and calling themself athiest." She sounds like we're trying to convince ourselves that we're atheists, and not ACTUALLY atheists. Shitty grammar. You don't have to be arrogant to not believe in a creator sky fairy, just informed.

The difference of being right or wrong, which is quite important to some people?

Now that is one incoherent sentence.

What difference? Oh, about 999 billion years.
