Some gems of critical thought about radiometric dating from the evolution fairytale forum..
I find it ironic in the extreme that "half life" is a statistical calculation.
What's happening is something unknown is causing atoms to decay. Could be tiny coins are tossed in there, or tiny dice rolled. From the outside we don't know how often the coin is tossed or the die rolled. All that can be seen is the end result: every so often an atom decays.
Because it's unknown, it's categorized as random.
And my favorite one of all..
The 'half-life' is also an arbitrary abstraction. One could calculate a "quarter-life" or "tenth-life" or "hundred thousanth-life". I'm not aware of any law of nature designating the half as magically superior to other fractions.
I just tried to pull up the forum and I can't get a connection. I registered with the same name there but haven't posted anything. I wonder if I was banned because of this post? That would be too funny.
De Skudd is an analog of Dr. Zeus and is a bit comical. Only Fred Williams affects me the way you describe. Pretty creepy thought processes going on there.
Well here is a link for the enlightenment of Lucy the Ape - perhaps a friend of Dr. Zeus?
This is a "Coffee House" humor/humour topic. While you may find certain creationist comments to be humorous, this is not a good place for such things. More so, it is not the place to debate/discuss such thing.
Or something like that.

It really helps moderators figure out if a topic is disintegrating because of general misbehavior versus someone in particular if the originally non-misbehaving members kept it that way. When everyone is prickly and argumentative and off-topic and personal then it's just too difficult to tell. We have neither infinite time to untie the Gordian knot, nor the wisdom of Solomon.
There used to be a comedian who presented his ideas for a better world, and one of them was to arm everyone on the highway with little rubber dart guns. Every time you see a driver doing something stupid, you fire a little dart at his car. When a state trooper sees someone driving down the highway with a bunch of darts all over his car he pulls him over for being an idiot.
Please make it easy to tell you apart from the idiots. Source

I only see jerky video. The video is faster if you view them one at a time (click on the archives link at the bottom of the page), but it still just looks like jerky video. Do your eyes actually perceive it as 3D?
In Red Cop Car I see the hills at the right of frame in a 3-D that's as good or better than any 3-D movie I've ever seen. None of the others do it for me in the least.Genesis 2 17 But of the ponderosa pine, thou shalt not eat of it; for in the day that thou shinniest thereof thou shalt sorely learn of thy nakedness. 18 And we all live happily ever after.
