Re: Percy, from the "Absence of Evidence" topic
There he goes again - refuting the YEC "Sea Shells on mountain tops!" meme with the inconvenient observation that the shells are also found in sediment layers WITHIN the mountain. Drat that Percy fellow.

Re: Bump for David101

The question is why are there fossils of 20 and 30 year old seashells on mountain tops ... and how this can be evidence for a flood of only a couple hundred days.

Oh that's no problem. Even I can answer that. Things got so churned up when the "fountains of the deep" opened up that shells were picked up topsy turvy and scattered all over the place. And the layers underneath? There were earlier floods of course which just aren't mentioned. But it says it had never rained before...never mind. Maybe it has something to do with the speed of light changing? Where is Duane Gish when you need a "Gish gallop" to an alternative explanation?

Continental Drift accepted by the 1960s
I graduated from high school in 1969. I remember discussing continental drift in high school physical science class (1967 in a small rural high school in Pennsylvania}. It was in the earth science text I used to teach ninth graders in 1973 - and it was by no means a new textbook - at least 5 years old. So anyone who graduated from high school after 1970 should certainly have been exposed to the concept.

Re: So, can we get back to the shell game?

Sorry, but I thought it was relevant. After all, tectonic forces are what push seashell-bearing strata up to become mountains, aren't they?

Of course it is relevant. The topic is explaining why or why not sea shells on mountain tops are evidence for a global flood. The more parsimonius explanation for how sea shells got to be on mountaintops has to be relevant. A better explanation of the data is always relevant in scientific debate.
