So did we or did we not descend from Adam and Eve? If we did descend from them, then every single human trait must have been present in them. Genetically speaking we HAVE to share their genes. There is no other possible source of our genetic material.
Science does not presume anything such - science finds out how the world used to be, rather than taking its knowledge from a book it looks at the evidence left behind.
Scientists know how the Earth was formed because the process of its formation is recorded in the structure of the rocks, life's origins are recorded in their composition. The origins of the universe are preserved in the structures of stars and galaxies and the light that is visible. We can see, it the microwave spectrum, the big bang's occurrence. It is actually still there, still visible, that light still exists and you can by analysing watch it occur in great detail.
If the Genesis account were true it too would have left behind artefacts of its existence. The Garden of Eden, a real physical place on Earth, would leave a trace of its existence. (We are told it was somewhere in Iraq) We would find a place on earth where the remains of all living species could be found, where the residue of that vegetation is contained in the soil.
Similarly with a flood which covered the entire world - the excess water would have to go somewhere we could find it. There would be, in the crust across the planet, a thing band of sandstone indicating that the place was once submerged beneath the sea, formed at the same time everywhere in the world and only some few thousand years ago, even the driest desert and tallest mountain. There is not. It is not present.
Such a thing could not occur and leave no trace, yet you claim they did. Where then is the trace? The inevitable evidence of such events passing?
You even admit this;
Where then, does it show this? All that history shows, anywhere, is the lack of any involvement by any god.
The robot thing - the products are identical, a name or brand can be changed or removed. It is not inherently part of the machine. Samsung can make an iPhone and put an Apple logo on it - if it is identical in every way what is there possibly to say that it is not an Apple made iPhone?
If a god really did make the universe, they put Science's brand on it, not their own.
