There's a pattern there Faith

I'm not interested in getting the terms right and finding out exactly what an underground river is. The point is that I see no reason to think of any of what is seismically imaged and called "ancient rivers" or "canyons" was ever on the surface.

I don't care that what I'm doing is not Science as you all so puristically insist it be done. If you want only scientists at EvC PUT UP A SIGN SAYING SO AND THE REST OF US WILL STAY AWAY.

There is a pattern there Faith and it is not just about science, facts or reality.

You don't care that terms actually have meaning or that what is seen is actually what is seen or what Calvin actually says or what is actually written in the Bible stories and that is why you continually post stuff that is just plain wrong.

You claim to see no reason any of what is seismically imaged and called "ancient rivers" or "canyons" was ever on the surface yet never provide a model, method, process or mechanism that could explain what is seen that does not require those artifacts to have once been on the surface.

This has been true so far of every single example of what really exists whether we are talking about the Bible or science or what Calvin actually wrote.

All anyone has ever asked of you is that when you make assertions that you actually try to back up those assertions with evidence and the model, process, method or mechanism that explains the evidence.

I'm not interested in getting the terms right and finding out exactly what an underground river is. The point is that I see no reason to think of any of what is seismically imaged and called "ancient rivers" or "canyons" was ever on the surface.

But you have no support for an alternative, right?

So, how else would a river valley form at depth within the geological record?

I don't care that what I'm doing is not Science as you all so puristically insist it be done. If you want only scientists at EvC PUT UP A SIGN SAYING SO AND THE REST OF US WILL STAY AWAY.

That isn't the point. The point is that if you come here and make statements it is expected that you will support your statements.

Closing This Down
Apologies for taking so long to catch up with this thread, but discussion on this topic should return to the Earth science curriculum tailored to fit wavering fundamentalists thread where it began. I'll be actively moderating it now. Responding to some of the concerns:

  • New threads can be proposed over at Proposed New Topics for topics that don't fit in the Earth science curriculum tailored to fit wavering fundamentalists thread, but they shouldn't be proposed here in the Coffee House forum. This forum is for topics having nothing to do with the creation/evolution debate.

  • Complaints about participants won't be tolerated. Someone's arguments can only be shown wrong with evidence, not by complaining about what horrible people they are.

  • Bald declarations, from either side, also won't be tolerated.

  • Anyone can respond to any message (this shouldn't have to be said). (AbE)

  • Talmudic claims that I'm not enforcing the guidelines (e.g., "He said that water freezes at 32 degrees at STC, but you didn't make him prove it") won't be tolerated either.

  • Concerns about discussion should be reported to the Report Discussion Problems Here 4.0 thread, not in-thread.

I'm Expecting a Thread Proposal
This thread should have gone through the normal thread proposal process over at Proposed New Topics. That it didn't, that it was opened here in Coffee House, is why I closed it down. I thought that I might see a new thread proposal by now, but I haven't, so I'm going to give this thread the title "Origin of the Flood Layers" and move it over to the Geology and the Great Flood forum.
