No, it has nothing to do with my religious beliefs, how on earth could it.
That's what I'm trying to figure out! Normally when you go this bull-headed deep into denial you claim that you're defending what the Bible says. So why are you so deep in denial this time?
I just don't see how there could be actual lava layers among the sedimentary layers.
Well then learn some geology! In this forum you've explicitly refused to learn geology and when I suggest it to you before you tried to flood me with emails filled with hysterical screaming. Obviously you are dead set against learning anything, but that does not eliminate the very real need for you to learn some geology. Not only would you finally understand the very basic processes that have to be understood and discussed when discussing geology (isn't that what you're supposedly trying to do here?), but you won't have to resort to ludicrous complaints about not being able to understand what somebody posted because he used normal and basic standard geological terminology. Plus, you'd be able to think through and describe your ideas so that people could finally understand it!
Learn some geology already!
SHOW ME AN ACTUAL LAVA LAYER THAT IS NOT INTRUSIVE INTO SEDIMENTARY ROCK.
IT'S BEEN DONE ALREADY! REPEATEDLY! READ THE MESSAGES INSTEAD OF WILLFULLY IGNORING THEM!
I'm not going to do your work for you. Especially since you will just ignore what you don't want to see, yet again!
I shouldn't have to explain it to you yet again when it has already been explained to you time after time.
And here again you admit to ignoring the information that others have put together for your benefit. You are being willfully ignorant. And you are guarding your ignorance as if it were something very precious, which it is for a creationist. Because creationism depends on ignorance. The reason for that is because the actual evidence not only does not support creationists' claims, but it directly contradicts and therefore refutes them. Faced with the actual real-world evidence, the creationist's task becomes one of denying that evidence. That task is approached in a number of ways, including lying about the evidence, denying that it exists, ignoring it, feigning being too stupid to understand the evidence and explanations of it, etc. More important than deceiving others about the evidence, the creationist must deceive himself.
That is what we observe you doing constantly. And it's getting worse. You need to pull yourself out of your downward spiral of denial.
I've been dealing with creationists on-line since the mid-1980's and studying "creation science" since 1981. During that time I have seen the same patterns of behavior unfold. The best I could describe it would be a kind of mental pathology. You are displaying the classic symptoms. It really is painful just to watch your decline.
In the meantime, Faith, get a clue. You may need your ignorance to protect your beliefs and faith from reality, but why should you need to? If for no other reason, you need to learn in order to prosecute your agenda more effectively:
quote:Sun Tzu, Scroll III (Offensive Strategy):
31. Therefore I say: "Know the enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles you will never be in peril.
32. When you are ignorant of the enemy but know yourself, your chances of winning or losing are equal.
33. If ignorant both of your enemy and of yourself, you are certain in every battle to be in peril."
(Sun Tzu The Art of War, translation by Samuel B. Griffith, Oxford University Press, 1963)
You are ignorant both of your enemy and of yourself, which is why you are giving yourself an ulcer (as you described it). Only you can change that.
... a dozen people ... without even bothering to figure out where you're coming from.
That is not true! They have been trying their best to figure out what you're trying to describe. The problem is that, because of your ignorance and your hatred of using standard terminology, what you present is a garbled mess. Nobody can understand what you're trying to say most of the time. I have seen many attempts on others' part (I don't have the time to waste with you) to ask you for clarification or at least to verify their interpretation. At the same time, I have seen you revile them and blow them off.
Maybe it would go smoother if you were to try to work with them instead of making it even more impossible to figure out what the hell you're talking about.
