Hi Bookworm 7890

Considering that this was published on a science forum, to discuss a global flood doesn't make any sense.

In a science forum the evidence need to be argued. Not something you got from your favourite holy book.

Your first two sentences, coupled with the flood don't make any sense to me anyway.

Backwards debate is my idea that instead of arguing your own belief, you argue the opposite. Creationists will support evolution, and evolutionists will support creation.

What would a global flood have to do with evolutionists? Evolutionists study biology.

For these reasons it it futile to participate in this thread, pretending that I'm a creationist. Your thread doesn't make any sense.

Re: Also
Why pm those?

Please pm me links to websites with evidence for evolution, Against the flood, etc.

Links to geology as used in practice by mining companies? Those who actually have to intensively study those rocks they’re mining? Sure. I’m not going to pm them to you though, it’s way more efficient out in the open where everyone can find those links.

I can link you to lots of reliable sources showing that there hasn’t been any global flood during the last billions of years.

For example The South African Journal of Geology . You need to pay to read it. No sign of a global flood in our country.

Other sources are for example Exxaro , a big coal mining company in my country. I think that they know a lot about the rocks they’re mining; way more than you would.

They think that their coal deposits are late Carboniferous and early Permian (depending on the area). Millions of years old.

No global flood mentioned anywhere. No evidence for such a flood in my country.

By the way, I accept the biological Theory of Evolution because I know that every single one of those hundreds of thousands of biologists (be they geneticists, etc. ), all over the world knows more about biology than I do.

It seems as if you're struggling to differentiate between the different natural sciences.

Let's give you a hint or two: Biologists study life. They don't study rocks.

Geologists study rocks. They don't study life.
