The short argument :

Without cyanobacteria - no fixed nitrogen is available.
Did anyone note how the OP could not have read what he had written as he has misspelled cynaobacteria in the title, whereas the word appears six times in the text.

It appears that the entire piece is a jigsaw of cut and paste.

The phrase, "blindly trotting out propaganda" springs to mind.

To OP.

It has been known for a LONG time that Lightning does the same thing, granted on a lesser scale, but still sufficient to sustain plants.

Rule 1: No pooftas. Rule 2: No maltreating the theists, IF, anyone is watching. Rule 3: No pooftas. Rule 4: I do not want to see anyone NOT drinking after light out. Rule 5: No pooftas. Rule 6: There is NO...rule 6.

Yeah, but you can't have lightning without Zeus!
Wait, is that one of the OP's guys?
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

But you can't have both, because that would require admitting that we don't know for sure which being actually does it.  Can't have that, can we?

As a fan of butter, yes, it is...

Agnosticism?

True, but I don't quite see how to decide which is the right one. The evidence for all thunder gods is the same, after all. Personally, I somewhat favour Thor who is celebrated every Thursday. That we use his name for a day of the week suggests it could be him! :)

Agnosticism is not knowing, so no.  You'll note that agnostics don't actually try to claim that it's both (or multiple) gods.

So I followed the link and read

This article relating to a myth or legend from Australia is a stub. You can help Wikipedia by expanding it.
I resisted the temptation to just invent some plausibly implausible garbage and insert it and then I noted that whereas this is "myth or legend", whereas Jesus, His dad and hommies are all "religion."

I demand equality for all religions! How come one form of batshit crazy is revered above another?

Godexists: we will not be approving any further "information dump" posts until you have given pertinent answers to the specific questions you have been asked in this thread.
Just because you've always done it that way doesn't mean it's not incredibly stupid.
Why is it so hard for believers to answer a direct question?
