"Without a clear indicator of the author's intent, it is impossible to create a parody of extreme views so obviously exaggerated that it cannot be mistaken by some readers for a sincere expression of the parodied views." Wikipedia
It is impossible to suggest a position so ridiculous that a creationist won't accept it as true.
I did spell out some time ago the differences that have to be navigated to get from the reptilian ear to the mammalian ear....
You're not addressing the issue. The reptilian genome and the mammalian genome are made from the same building blocks, the same DNA, the same LEGOs. How would it even be possible to prevent one from being rebuilt as the other? What enforces the rule that a particular LEGO can only make a reptile while another LEGO can only make a mammal?
No, since YECs believe there are many separate Kinds each with its own genome, and it's only within each Kind that the kind of variation occurs that I'm talking about.
You still haven't explained how that is even possible, since every DNA molecule is made of the same building blocks, regardless of species. You're claiming that it's impossible to edit "Hello" into "Goodbye", which is ridiculous.
...if you trace back on the "phylogenetic tree" both the Ichthyosaur and the whale, they both would have had to had the same ancestor with the pentadactyl pattern.
That doesn't follow. It is possible for the same pattern to evolve from different sources. Note the seal's flipper and the penguin's flipper, very similar in form and function, yet the seal is more closely related to other mammals and the penguin is more closely related to other birds. The evolution does not depend on birds and mammals having a common ancestor.
Re: Transitionals are intermediate in form/features/time/location from before and after
Anyone with eyes open should be able to see the evidence for the Flood everywhere on this earth.
Floods. Plural. We have floods going on in the world right now, so we know they are plural. We have eyewitness accounts going back as far as humans have had the means to pass information down from one generation to the next, so we know floods are plural. We have no reason to think there haven't been floods every year as long as there has been water on earth and as long as there have been seasons.
What we do NOT have is one shred of evidence that there was one big worldwide Flood. And we do have evidence that there was not.
quote:Superstition is a pejorative term for any belief or practice that is considered irrational or supernatural: for example, if it arises from ignorance, a misunderstanding of science or causality, a positive belief in fate or magic, or fear of that which is unknown. It is commonly applied to beliefs and practices surrounding luck, prophecy, and certain spiritual beings, particularly the belief that future events can be foretold by specific (apparently) unrelated prior events. The word superstition is often used to refer to a religion not practiced by the majority of a given society regardless of whether the prevailing religion contains alleged superstitions.
It's funny when a superstitious person calls somebody else superstitious, kinda like a 300-pounder calling a 400-pounder "fat".
