Hi Kofh2u,

Your numerological arguments don't bear on the topic, so please stop raising them here. They also don't bear on the other topic where you raised them, the Size of the universe thread, so you shouldn't be raising them there, either.

If you'd like to discuss numerology then please proppose a thread over at Proposed New Topics.

We are talking about the age of the earth and how we measure the time using the Geological clock...

I don't know how a discussion of the age of the Earth began in a thread about the Miller/Urey experiment, but it should really be taking place in a thread where it would be on topic. Since you're taking a numerological approach, which I don't recall seeing before, I suggest proposing a new thread over at Proposed New Topics.

Re: Numerology...?
Hi Kofh2u,

It's interesting to hear that you believe old threads, particularly those where the originator is no longer around, do not need to stay on topic, but if you read over the Forum Guidelines you'll see there are no such qualifications. The rule to stay on topic is not conditional upon age of the thread or activity level of the originator or upon anything else. Certainly digressions onto relevant side issues are often necessary, but the age of the Earth is not a relevant side issue of subsequent research following the Miller/Urey experiment.

If you'd like to discuss the age of the Earth and/or numerological issues, please propose a new thread over at Proposed New Topics.

So you are saying that unless somewhere in this thread someone has implied directly that this experiment has relevance to Genesis I should just assume its a discussion between science people and not really part of the site namesake about the relationship the discussion might or might not have concerning Creationism?

Hi Kofh2u,

Actually, I'm only saying that this thread isn't about the age of the Earth. It's about research subsequent to the Miller/Urey experiment. You're more than welcome to discuss the age of the Earth in any thread where it is the topic.

Re: Numerology...?
Hi Kofh2u,

Now you're merely using the Miller/Urey experiment as a launching point to discuss your own ideas about abiogenesis. This thread is about research related and subsequent to the Miller/Urey experiment.

I'm removing your posting permissions in this forum, the Education and Creation/Evolution forum. If after you return from suspension you post off-topic or make bald claims with no evidence anywhere at EvC Forum again then I will suspend you permanently.

If you'd like to stay here and discuss your ideas then stop trying to force discussion of your ideas into threads on other topics and instead propose new threads over at Proposed New Topics.
