Their publication was not the first to espouse these views but its popularity precipitated a deluge of Flood-related research by young-earth creationists in an attempt to find support for the bookâ€™s conclusions. Ironically, that outpouring of research has ultimately led to the falsification of most of the bookâ€™s geological interpretations.
I don't understand. Why don't geologist come to this kind of forum. Did they come and leave? I met a few with MS degree in geology. But they did not talk much. I also know a few Ph.D. in Earth Sciences. But they are not in geology.
One reason I can think of is that you people disappointed them too much. It is not about Christianity, but is on the way you people talked. You do not really care about geology, but are trying to insult them with arrogance.
This is not good for EvC. That is why this subforum in Science is almost dead.
Re: Evolution vs YEC and Creationism in general in 2020
The main reason more Geologists don't come here (in my opinion) is because they have other ways to talk shop amongst themselves
I think professional geologists do not like this type of forum because nearly 99% people here do not have a comprehensive geology knowledge at the entrance level. Ironically, professional geologists do not talk to each other on EvC topics either because the topics are very theological at the other hand. It ends up that very few geologist talk about EvC issues anywhereat all. I am hanging out here basically for religious reason. Geology and science are only tools I used in conversation. These people do not accept God. Hopefully, logic and science would more effectively give them a better understanding about the words of God. In fact, I pretty enjoy the moment when they erupted to insult because they are cornered by logic and science. For a few who do ask thoughtful questions, I always do my best to explain.
1) Have you ever heard of Dr.Henry Morris? What do you think of the ICR? 2)Do you know who Ken Ham is and what he teaches? Do you agree or disagree with his conclusions?
Yes, I am quite familiar with ICR and Back to Genesis. I admire their work because they try so hard to fight the cult of evolution. I had a chance to join them in their early stage of development. However, their stiff 6000-year-old-earth doctrine scared me away. This false idea becomes the main hinderance to their science models. Nevertheless, I whole heartily support them.
