Re: Oh well
Yeah tell me about it! Apperantly it's so complicated that no one can explain it...

Ahhh well. Hey, their teaching something to the kids in school right? What is it...that picture of the geologic column?

Then they use the finch beaks? Variation within a kind and pass it off as "the theory of evolution". It's quite a charade they have going.

So in the text books it'a all lies because we know variation within a kind doesn't equal what the theory really teaches does it Taq?

Again, coherently?

Re: Oh well
I'm terribly sorry to hear that Creation Ministries aka CMI did not take your request on as of course you expected them to alert the various news outlets of your request and put all else aside just for you and your supporters. Yes, quite a shame.

Maybe you can email the President of the United States next time and see if He has time to look over your next PNT for a quick critique?

It was silly and naive of Butterflytyrant to suppose that creationists ask questions because they want answers.

As we have seen, they ask questions because they want to disguise lies as questions.

Re: Oh well
Try reading it this time. It's easy to understand. Even a child could. Are you smarter than a child doc?

Perhaps you overestimate yourself.

Re: Oh well
For instance? There is a lot evolutionists do not know. We have the same fossil record to look at.

Creationists, however, tend not to look at it but to look at things that other creationists have made up instead.

Creationists say it supports Creationsim.

Which is easy to say if you never look at it and know nothing about it.

We have a theory too.

And possibly it accounts for the things that creationists have made up. For the real world, not so much.

Re: Chuck Refuses to Debate Like an Adult
Really? So why is evolution so hard to explain if an 8th grader can understand it but crashforg says it takes extensive research.

Understanding evolution is easy. Any child or non-creationist could do it. This is why it was so easy to answer CMI's questions.

Retailing even a fraction of the evidence for evolution would take a book. A large book.

Tell you what, when I've finished writing my textbook on geology, maybe I'll do evolution. In the meantime there are textbooks on evolution already, perhaps you could read one.

Re: Oh well
I was very specific about what I was replying to - I quoted you asking if the geologic column even exists, so there's your "for instance," right in the very message you replied to. Instead of investigating what is known about the geologic column, you questioned its existence.

Well instead of investigating what is known about the geologic column, you asserted its existence. You and Chuck both seem to be committing what philosophers call a "category error".
