Re: tectonic plate movement
Yeah I know the history whereby supposed Christians abandoned their faith for fallible science. Sad history. Some stupid stuff they actually accepted, a seeming arrangement of fossils supposedly proving descent. Now that is truly idiotic. In any case my assumptions are based on God's revelations and nothing so flimsy as a scientific theory.

So why do you keep need to be reminded that you are wasting your time and that of everyone else in the Science forum. Do you have a specific learning difficulty? I struggle to understand why you are unable to grasp what discussion are about in the science forums?

On Fossil sorting

Okay Faith, you have said that the conventional explanation for the arrangement of fossils is idiotic. Now is your MOMENT.

Please provide us with the Flood Model that explains Fossil Sorting. Shall I take it to a new thread for you? Would the title "Faith explains Fossil Sorting" be acceptable to you?

Re: On Fossil sorting
The point was that it was a huge leap from a mere arrangement of dead things to the idea that they descended from one another, no matter WHAT the actual explanation for the arrangement is. There is nothing logical about such a leap. Especially if you take into account the discrete sediments in which the fossils are buried, which can't possibly mark off eras of time. Seeing that all that is stupid doesn't require me to know how the flood laid it all down. THAT is a stupid expectation in itself.

No point in ever posting on a science thread
Your personal comments are a violation of the forum guidelines as usual, but we just let you get away with it because we like you.

As for your contention about the science threads, I regret ever posting on one, and in fact said so a number of times on this very thread. See

Message 268

Message 273

and

Message 274.

Okay, so you do not want to explain fossil sorting. Kinda expected that would be your position.

Now you say that the geological layering cannot equal eras. Would you like to have a thread where you can explain the model for building the structure we see in the Grand Canyon?

It could be called "Faith explains the layers in the Grand Canyon" if that is acceptable to you.

Well let me expand on my comments so I am clear. I used to be a school teacher and as part of my responsibilities I was also a form tutor. This meant that I was responsible for the general welfare of a number of students.

Occassionally I would have to deal with students who get into trouble, time and time again. Eventually we would find with some of them, that part of the problem was miscommunication between the teacher and the student - the miscommunication was the result of a learning difficulty. One of the first steps to getting to the bottom of such a problem is to ask.

You've been here - two years? You know the bible is not evidence in the science forums, you know that nobody in the science forums will take it for evidence. Yet you constantly and consistantly post in the science forums i) using the bible for evidence and ii) stating that since the bible is evidence, it's irrelevent what the rest of us post that goes against the evidence of the bible.

Therefore I can only conclude that either you act in such a way because you just don't want to stop or you have a learning difficultly that the rest of us are unaware of it and you are unable to stop.

Therefore, it seems an entirely sensible question to ask.

Edited by AdminJar, : Yeah I know why you posted it but it really is off topic here.

Obviously you don't know the history in any detail. IF you cared about the truth you would actually look into it rather than hurling out ill-founded insults.

Re: tectonic plate movement
I've read quite a bit.

Anybody who really cares about the truth doesn't discard God's own revelation as lightly as it appears many have, just on the basis of fallible human science.

Will Faith explain tectonic plate movement?
Anybody who really cares about the truth doesn't discard God's own revelation as lightly as it appears many have, just on the basis of fallible human science.

So you do not want to explain fossil sorting, here is another idea.

How about you present the model for plate tectonics? We can start a thread called "Faith presents the model for Continental Drift and Plate Tectonics."

Whould you like that?

Re: tectonic plate movement
If you've read quite a lot then you know that the order in the fossil record was only generally accepted as the product of evolution after Darwin published and that evolution had a strong basis in other evidence. But it was a problem for your beliefs long before that. So you ought to know that your post was shallow and inaccurate as well as just plain insulting.

And disagreeing with YEC beliefs is not discarding God's own revelation. Not unless you wish to claim that YECs are God.

COme to that, I care about the truth and that is why I DON'T accept your views as representing a revelation from God.r

Re: tectonic plate movement
Shallow and insulting describes you too, Mr. Pot.

Stupid idea that because I believe YECs respect God's revelation and all others compromise it, that makes YECs God. But yes, I do believe that if you refuse to accept the Bible inerrantist reading of Genesis you are denying God.

Faith crosses the line yet again, closing this down
PaulK posts

clearly addressing the content of Faiths post yet she replies,

Faith writes:

which is a direct attack on the individual member.

Shutting this down.
