I agree gaffer. If the religious delusionals want to be taken seriously it is time they provided something genuine and verifiable, rather than hiding

flood had engulfed the planet, then the Bible Genesis account would be verified."
"Written by feudal tribal patriarchs rather than an ethical designer, the Biblical God of both Testaments is not moral because it causes, orders
or approves of a host of immoral actions.....The Judeo-Christian scriptures are not able to provide a moral basis for individual or societal
Very relevant, fundamentalist religion seems to have a very negative impact on societal health and morality, see the link in post below.
