Oh, I see - so the world's knowledge of electricity has no foundation in actual fact.

Apparently I have spent the last several years working with non a non-existing phenomenon.

Wrong - I know the difference between a circle and a sphere.

What I did claim(correctly, I might add) is that the Bible describes the Earth as a sphere.

You are the one who made the nonsensical argument that it says the earth is flat.

Only someone with a biased and hostile attitude towards the Bible could make such an inane assertion.

No. But the light from stars and galaxies several million or billion of light-years away is. We can absolutely and directly observe celestial events that occurred that long ago.

To demonstrate the near complete intellectual bankrupcy of you position on this issue.

The theory of evolution is easily falsifiable, and is tested every single day.

It simply has never been falsified.

You either have an editing typo in there or you are not clear what falsifiability is. One reason the Theory of Evolution is a Scientific Theory is because it is falsifiable. That's the way it works with Scientific Theories.

Creationists have been saying that same thing since George MacReady Price published The New Geology in 1923.

They have therefore been wrong for 90 years at this point.

I see that the evolutionists are reduced to saying "ToE is valid simply because I say that it is".

Close.

The Theory of Evolution holds because it has not been falsified.

But it certainly is falsifiable, like any genuinely scientific theory must be.

If any theory is not falsifiable, then science cannot test it. You know... ideas like God.
