I found an interesting writing by Rich Wendling at the following link, an answer to “skeptic” Valerie Tarico at another link:

The article starts with

The fact that some naïve Bible study leader ignorantly thought that “dinosaur skeletons actually are the bones of the giants described in early books of the Bible” isn’t an argument against Biblical creationism. It does, however, point out the fact that too many Christians are ignorant of both science and the Bible

–> But then they object to using the cockamamie Hopeful Monster theory of evolution against Darwinian evolution. It proves nothing. The ancient Greeks, without visiting Galapagos, were the first to propose evolution. In fact, it is condemned explicitly in Jeremiah as a pagan idea:

Saying to a stock, Thou [art] my father; and to a stone, Thou hast brought me forth: for they have turned [their] back unto me, and not [their] face: but in the time of their trouble they will say, Arise, and save us. – Jeremiah 2:27

Rich makes this point further on:

All origins theories other than the straight-forward Biblical account of six literal days a few thousand years ago take mankind’s fallible ideas and hold them in higher authority than God’s Word. All of these other theories question the authority of the straight-forward teaching of the Bible.

That’s true  but it’s important to mention that belief in the Bible is grounded not in the false “blind faith” professed by many Christians, but used as an accusation against all of us, but these God-deniers still have to prove they are not science-deniers by addressing the science that has converted many a scientist and atheist to young-earth creationist.

The very origin of Christianity is based on the hard evidence of the fact of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ in bodily form. Demonstrably dead from the piercing of the Roman sword in his side to make sure, as historians say the Romans did to make sure of it, he was seen by “five hundred” in the flesh, eating with them and having  fellowship with them.

After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. — First Corinthians 15:6

As always, then, the arguments against the Biblical facts of Christianity are religious, whether they are made by “Christians” or by atheists or Darwinians.

Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, – Romans 1:22

Whence one of my favorite couple of verses:

[[To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.]] The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. – Psalm 19:1

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.- Isaiah 1:8
