Re: Legitimate creation arguments...
Booboocruise, I hope that you will realize how awful your whining seems to others.
Evolutionists, particularly the ones in this forum, are among the most close-minded, biased people I've ever heard of.
You're telling me.
First off, there is no proof against the Bible,
so you have no business ridiculing or otherwise tampering with the legitimacy of actual Bible-believers.
Cry me a river.
Also, Kent Hovind IS a doctor.
Who "earned" his degree at a diploma mill.
All the bogus riff-raff about Kent Hovind's degree is just a back-and-forth rumor between the evolutionists.
Just painful reality. And if you think that Karen Bartelt had given Mr. Hovind a hatchet job, then I challenge you to publish his thesis -- OCR it and put it in PDF, so that the rest of us can see it and judge it for ourselves.
I KNOW you will disagree, but I have seen Patriot's policies, I have SEEN WITH MY OWN EYES Dr. Hovind's PhD diploma,
But is that "diploma" worth anything?
I have talked with Dr. Hovind personally,
and I have even read the 'crap' that says Patriot University is a 'degree mill.' Whether it is a degree mill or not, (you'd have to be more specific) is not your business,
When he brags about his credentials, it is.
and you need to understand that all the anti-Hovind personnal comments are based off of a photograph of a house in Colorado, sayind "that's Patriot University."
There are numerous negative things to say about him.
I have read up on Patriot University (it is not a secular college but that has nothing to do with the matter) and I have seen course descriptions of their degrees in education.
But how much work does that "university" really require?
Don't you remember ANYTHING from high school?
Dr. Hovind has the PERSONALITY of a high-school teacher if you ever get the chance to talk with him (if you ever have the integrity or courage to call him). I'd never mistake a high-school teacher's personality for any other type of scientist!
But that's what he poses as -- some sort of super scientist.
Even if Dr. Hovind WASN'T a doctor that wouldnt mean he doesn't have the righ to run CSE (which is NOT a government-controlled corporation).
Also, any TRULY open-minded, educated person who is not arrogant or ignorant will admit that Dr. Hovind's degrees are legitimate.
For what reason?
Also, if you are looking for what YOU would call a "professional" creation scientist, get Dr. Robert Gentry's book "Creation's Tiny Mystery." Or get Dr. John Morris' book "Young Earth." Of get Dr. Comninellis' book "Creative Defense: Evidence AGAINST Evolution."
But if these gentlemen have done more worthy work than Mr. Hovind, then why are you weeping so much for Mr. Hovind?
You always seem to have anti-creationist crap posted on the web, but I've never seen any evolutionists stand up to a publicised book by a true creation scientist--read through those three books, check their sources, AND ONLY THEN tell me that you can stand up to so-called "dumb" creation scientists!!!
And you have read at least as many mainstream-science books?
Booboo, (By now the furious 'booboo' because of your arrogant personal attacks against creationists) FOLLOW YOUR OWN ADVICE--most evolutionists are just full of personnal attacks and accusations against creationists, AND THEN THEY demand THE CREATIONISTS to be 'professional!!!
What "personal attacks" and "accusations"?
Kent Hovind is the source of a lot of evolutionists' anger and prejudice, but when I rebuked your anti-Hovind crap you IGNORED IT in your next comment.
Some more weeping for Mr. Hovind. How is he the recipient of "anger" and "prejudice"?
Why CANT you prove the earth is billions of years old?
What would you consider acceptable proof? Traveling back in time in a time machine? If you are to do that, be sure to take along an oxygen tank for much of the Earth's history.
Why CANT YOU prove Jesus was lying?
We don't have to. He could have been honestly mistaken, or one of his followers had put words in his mouth, the way that Plato had done with Socrates.
Why CANT you prove that stars can form?
Star formation is now reasonably well-understood. Some interstellar gas cloud collapses because of its gravity. And though it gets hotter, this heat makes it glow more, making it lose thermal energy. This keeps the collapse going until it gets close to its final size, when it gets much more difficult for it to radiate away its heat energy.
Why CANT you prove Hovind isn't a real doctor?
Because his degree is from a known diploma mill.
Why CANT you prove we evolved, or are still evolving--the variations in modern species might just be the result of radiation from the sun following Noah's Flood (afterall, a canopy of water around the earth has evidence supporting it, AND that would have blocked out solar radiation).
That canopy would have crushed the atmosphere beneath it. And you are conceding that evolution happens.
Also, when you said that there is evidence against the Bible, I HAVE NEVER HEARD A BIGGER LIE!
A lie? Are you capable of conceiving of honest mistakes?
There is lots of evidence of Biblical errancy. Its early "history" is about as fictional as Greek mythology, and entangling fact from myth in the Gospels is a very difficult task.
The Bible is what guided many modern discoveries and advancement in Science!
Like describing evolution long before Darwin? And how all life is descended from a long-ago microscopic ancestor?
In the book of Job (1400 B.C.) God asks Job about the 'springs of the sea.' Did you know that oceanic springs were not even discovered until 1977?
However, the Bible talks about sea monsters, including a sea monster that it is possible to live inside of for three days.
The book of Isaiah (700 B.C.) mentions God 'stretching out the heavens.' SO, the fact that we document the universe expanding could be proof for the Bible JUST AS easily as it could be proof for the Big Bang.
More like picturing the sky as some sort of tent.
The Book of Revelation (70 AD) mentions God sitting upon the 'circle of the earth.'
That's Isaiah, and it refers to a disk instead of a sphere. The Book of Revelation states that the Earth has 4 corners, with an angel on each one.
Did you know that most non-Christian and non-Jewish scientists in those days thought the world was flat, when the Bible knew it was round all along?
Demonstrably false. Greek scientists had known of the roundness of the Earth since Aristotle. However, the cosmology of 1 Enoch is flat-earthian, something consistent with the Bible itself. Consider how Jesus Christ was allegedly able to see "all the kingdoms of the world" from some high mountain.
Where is your evidence against the Bible?
The Bible Unearthed, Who Wrote the Bible?, etc.
Next, I'm not going to open up a creationist geology 101 course for you, but read Gentry's book: "Creation's Tiny Mystery"
His book is thorough and sound.
How so? Please tell us how that is supposed to be the case.
Where is the evidence against the Bible?
I have read BOTH sides of almost EVERY SINGLE argument about the origin of the earth--his book is more sound than you know. He has done up-to-date and thorough research on radiopalonium halos.
I'm not sure what can possibly justify that kind of hero-worship.
Where is the evidence against the Bible?
By the way, don't bother telling me about the 'contradictions' in the Bible--I can take apart that crap from the atheist websites in a few minutes, they are really ignorant, and they only pay attention to what jumps out in front of them and not reading the WHOLE Bible.
Except that advocates of Biblical errancy have read it. In fact, over at Internet Infidels, a common way to become unconvinced of its alleged absolute truth was to read it. Yes, read it.
For my part, I find Jesus Christ's cursing of a certain fig tree an absolutely appalling display of immaturity -- it's like he was a 2-year-old boy. And the Book of Revelation -- what drugs was its author taking?
So how would a round object have FOUR corners? Simple: North, South, East, and West.
Directions, not corners.
Don't try to analize that for mistakes, I have had endless Biblical discussion on these topics with a number of Christian doctors, Creationist scientists, Pastors, etc.
Would they ever be willing to permit themselves to conclude that the Bible has any errors?
