I had totally forgotten
What a great point that I had totally fogotten about since I last had a geology course. Why are there large crystals in ANY igneous formation if the earth is less than 10000 years old? This really is a big deal because how the heck to you even begin to propose a different type of crystalization process other than cooling over long periods of time?

What a fantastic stake in the heart of YECism. Not that their are not others but this one really gets down to the basic properties of elements as we know it. I would like to see the mental contortions and complete redefinion of physics necessary for YECs to make this one fit into one of their armchair speculations.


FOX has a pretty good system they have cooked up. 10 mil people watch the show on the network, FOX. Then 5 mil, different people, tune into FOX News to get outraged by it. I just hope that those good, God fearing people at FOX continue to battle those morally bankrupt people at FOX.

Re: I had totally forgotten
Thanks. That is good info to know. Would hate to be confronted with the whole, "it does/doesn't work in this particular case over young/old timeframe therefore it does/doesn't work at all" argument without knowing the facts.

The gist is that you can get certain crystals from certain magmas over "decently short" periods of time but in the general case you better have lots of time or a complete rewrite of little things such as physics.

In laymens terms, does that sum it up?
