As far as evidence. Here's a few.
1)Biblical and secualr chronology.

Examples?

2)Prophecy(Things that were written before they took place.)

You mean the one that can be interpreted in so many ways that it is almost impossible for a person not to find something that matches?
Or do you have some prophecies that are clear and precise?

3)You look at most cultures have stories that sound like the creation account of Genesis but they have been changed.

Just like the Genesis creation account appears to be a changed version of the Babylonion creation myth?

4)The flood. What would happen with a flood? Billions of dead things buried under the earth. What do we see?

Except that the sorting of fossils in not what you would expect had they been deposited by a flood.

Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun. Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-eight million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.

I respond to what others write. If the moderators feel that the thread has moved completely off topic they have every right to closed the topic. However, if the discussion is still interesting this discussion would more than likely be moved to a new thread.
However, if then main discussion is still taking place, then side topics are generally allowed.
