Re: Chuck77 about the geologic column
Only gave these a brief reading, but I second the nomination. It is rare for anyone on either side of the debate to graciously accept that an argument from the other side has some validity.

Here's the links:

Dr Adequate, at "The Flood, fossils, & the geologic evidence"
Author: Dr Adequate
Forum: Geology and the Great Flood
Thread: The Flood, fossils, & the geologic evidence
Message #: 250

A short little message, with 8 key (bolded by me) words:

The question is, what results would Noah's flood have had if it had happened? I think not very much (in geological terms, biogeography is a whole other question).

Many creationists present "the flood" as being able to do vast amounts of most anything. The non-creationist side, while not remotely going as far, still have expected a considerable impact that should be still see-able.

Of course, we (the non-creationist side) are arguing about the evidence or lack of evidence for a young Earth concept event, from our old Earth perspective.

As such, what impact is a 1 year event going to have upon the Earth's geology? Dr. A thinks not much, and I'm inclined to agree. But it's not unlike arguing how many angels can dance on a pinhead, when we can't begin to agree on how big the pinhead is.

Back to the topic in question, if this detail is to be debated further.

Dr A Handicaps 2012 (AKA The End of the World tm)
Author: Dr Adequate
Forum: Coffee House
Thread: The Awesome Republican Primary Thread
Message #: Message 1

Painfully, painfully funny and incisive commentary on the Krazee Klown Show that is GOP 2012. Only 16 more months to go!

Two of my favorite profiles:

Dr Adequate writes:

Michelle Bachmann. Either the dumbest person in the world or a gifted performance artist. Beloved by the insane wing of the Republican Party, because she is insane, and by liberals for exactly the same reason. Started her official campaign by claiming to be possessed by the spirit of a serial-killer clown, which she probably is.
...

Rick Santorum. How shall I put this? If you asked a liberal Hollywood screenwriter to invent a Republican politician, this is what he'd come up with. Except the bit where he called for "tougher penalties" for hurricane victims, which would be considered somewhat far-fetched even by Hollywood standards. He is rumored to blight the very earth he walks on so that no flower will ever bloom there again, and to kill puppies by thinking about them.


Your beliefs do not effect reality and evidently reality does not effect your beliefs.
-Theodoric

Reality has a well-known liberal bias.
-Steven Colbert

I never meant to say that the Conservatives are generally stupid. I meant to say that stupid people are generally Conservative. I believe that is so obviously and universally admitted a principle that I hardly think any gentleman will deny it.
- John Stuart Mill

Re: Dr A Handicaps 2012 (AKA The End of the World tm)
Seconded, what a zoo.


The idea of the sacred is quite simply one of the most conservative notions in any culture, because it seeks to turn other ideas - uncertainty, progress, change - into crimes.
ó Salman Rushdie

This rudderless world is not shaped by vague metaphysical forces. It is not God who kills the children. Not fate that butchers them or destiny that feeds them to the dogs. Itís us. Only us. - the character Rorschach in Watchmen

Chuck77 & M. Report, at "What is the creation science theory of the origin of light?"
Author: Chuck77
Forum: Big Bang and Cosmology
Thread: What is the creation science theory of the origin of light?
Message #: 7

The first paragraph:

Do you want us to propose one? Are you forcing us to come up with a "light" Theory? There isn't one that I know of. If you're trying to say we have no proof of what the Bible says fine, but until someone proposes a theory for "and God said" then it's silly to suggest we propose one for you just so you can "point and laugh".

Chuck77 went on to say more. The highly dubious topic should have ended there.

Author: Minority Report
Forum: Big Bang and Cosmology
Thread: What is the creation science theory of the origin of light?
Message #: 41

The first paragraph:

How many times do we have to tell you before you will understand. There is no creationist theory on how God created light. There never will be a theory. There cannot be a theory.

MR goes on to quote a bunch of members, starting with Chuck77 at message 7, who said essentially the same.

The still highly dubious topic really should have ended there. But it lives on.
