    The three examples you cite are nowhere definitively
    stated in any biblical text. They are assertions by
    those conducting exegesis on the biblical texts, based
    on their particular sets of assumptions.

    They are not and have never been Christian dogma (in
    the technical, not common, sense of the word). Nor
    have they ever been theologically of any importance of
    which I am aware. Thus, they have no impact on
    whether Christianity is true or false in light of

    Thus, you've failed to state anything about
    christianity that science has called into question.
