    A) The four that you mentioned wouldn't last a week in our forum.
    B) The Bible can be added to the list of sources.

    It is time to begin to develop a quick list.

    A. Archaeologic evidence
        1. Simultaneous deposits.
        2. Interpretation of these deposits by archaeologists as flood deposits.
        3. Deposits in agreement with Bible (Septuagint) chronology.
    B. Literary evidence
        1. Gilgamesh epic
        2. Atrahasis
        3. etc.
    C. Biblical evidence
        1. building cities
        2. chronology
        3. etc.

    I really hate to have to say this. But, you are now regularly and
    repeatedly failing to deal with the evidence. It wouldn't be so bad if
    you weren't criticizing opposing viewpoints. But you continue to make your
    quips. In my opinion, that type of attitude prolongs YEC. Your types of
    arguments are "fresh bait" that they love to munch on. Please stop your
    sweeping generalizations.

    And one more thing. You have taken a position that strays very, very,
    far from the Biblical text. ALL of the burden of proof is on your
    shoulders now. I'd like to see you create a quick list of arguments for
    your position. Then we can all look at it and see how much (if any)
    Biblical support you have for straying from the Bible. We Christians
    don't have anything in writing besides the Bible. When we publicly
    disregard big (or even little) chunks of it, we chip (or even hammer)
    away at its reputation. Is that really what you want to "accomplish"
    with your ad hominem remarks?
