Re: The Biblical Flood never happened.

My point is this: people that posted in this thread, brought up numerous arguments that were contrary to the biblical account.


In fact, it's creationists who mangle the Biblical account in an attempt to make it fit reality. The whole idea of rapid microevolution seems to have been made up to avoid fitting all of the animals o the ark. The violence of the flood, the uplifting of the mountains and the "vapour canopy" nonsense are all unbiblical.

The proposed experiment would certainly be interesting, whether it "succeeded" or not. But the major obstacle is likely to be Christians' inability to agree on "what the Bible says".

There are tax payer funded monuments to evolution (museums) in every major city in the world. Just sayin.

Watch This Space
We'll find out tomorrow if the whole project is going to collapse.

Story here.

A Northern Kentucky theme park to be built around a full-scale replica of Noah’s Ark may sink unless investors purchase about $29 million in unrated municipal bonds by Feb. 6.

In December, the city of Williamstown issued taxable debt for affiliates of the Christian nonprofit Answers in Genesis, data compiled by Bloomberg show.

Even though $26.5 million of securities have been sold, the project needs to sell at least $55 million in total to avoid triggering a redemption of all the bonds ...

This could be a bad week for Ken Ham.

You'd think he'd know to steer away from unwitnessed vessels.

Yeah, education is bad. Museums are very sinister, they have fossils in, fossils made by Satan to lead the devout astray. And as for libraries, they contain books. With facts in them, the devil's tool!

And the taxpayers have to pay for this filth, even though by an overwhelming majority they elected the Ignorance Party on a platform of making everyone stupid ... oh wait, they didn't. But, my dear Jaf, they could. They elect the people who decide how their money should be spent. They could vote for the closure of museums and the burning of books if they wanted to. I guess they don't, but feel free to start a political party and find out.

Could we see some evidence of this claim?

... oh, wait, you're a creationist.

Back in the real world, the Louvre isn't a library. It's an art gallery.

I doubt that, but if it's true, that's one of the strongest points of science: when you find out that phlogiston just doesn't work, you drop it as an explanation of how things get hot. When you find out about neutrons, electrons, and protons, you stop teaching kids that atoms are the smallest unit of matter. When you find out, through better measurements, that the half-life of rubidium 87 is 48.8 billion years, you gently adjust the dates you get from rubidium-strontium dating.

Religion does much the same thing, but more slowly. And they don't like talking about it. Christians don't kill many witches or own many slaves in most parts of the world here in 2014. Two or three hundred years ago, it was their Sacred Duty to do those things.

Welcome to EvC, Jaf!
