Carbon 14
Message 25

Hey, Carbon 14 specific topic
Not a general purpose radiometric topic.

Carbon 14 only used for ~50 thousand years back and is not relevant for dating considerations of millions or billions of years. Millions or billions of years considerations need to find a topic elsewhere.

All messages should have a Carbon 14 connection. Will need to start slamming messages that don't have that connection.

Adminnemooseus

The decay constant is the underlying principle supporting radiocarbon dating.

It is also the primary place creationists attack radiocarbon dating.

This subject should not be off limits.

Some posters are too pedantic2
Following up on Percey's comment:

Message 52

Some posters are just too pedantic. When an otherwise good discussion gets sidetracked into minutia of word definitions and semantics I suspect a lot of posters just give up. I know I do.

Knock it off!

Unnecessary insults
Dawn is losing it:

"I assume you are actually older than say, 20 years of age, so you should have learned this simple mature point by now. Perhaps I am wrong and you are still a teenage testosterone fueled boy. Are you still just a boy DA?"

Proposed New Topics, rant from JH
Over in Proposed New Topics we have a long rant from JH titled "Challenge for Evolutionists": Message 1

Early on, in paragraph 2, the rant claims:

This reality is confirmed from biological studies on ancient bacteria. As stated, “Almost without exception, bacteria isolated from ancient material have proven to closely resemble modern bacteria at both morphological and molecular levels.” - The Paradox of the “Ancient” Bacterium Which Contains “Modern” Protein-Coding Genes ( Heather Maughan*, C. William Birky Jr., Wayne L. Nicholson, William D. Rosenzweig§ and Russell H. Vreeland )

I tracked down the article, even though there was no link, and found a critique as well. Seems there are problems.

The critique questions the age of the bacteria which the above cited article claims to be ancient. This blows the JH rant out of the water just two paragraphs in.

New evidence for 250 Ma age of halotolerant bacterium from a Permian salt crystal: Comment and reply

Perhaps JH's rant needs additional supporting documentation before being approved.

(I scanned the rest of the rant; what a steaming pile of PRATTs!)

Edited by Coyote, : Just scanned the rest of the article

Off-topic
Many of the recent threads are off-topic in a EvC forum.

This is not supposed to be a political board.

Please stop promoting threads that are pure politics.

(And discourage them in the Coffee House.)

Re: Coffee House Topics
Here's the description of the Coffee House forum that is displayed on the Forums page:

Take a break from the debate, kick back, and enjoy conversations on other topics.

Take care that those "other topics" don't drown out the main topic of this forum.

Lately they are threatening to do just that.

One can find politics and other nonsense anywhere on the net, but one can't find the EvC discussion that you worked so hard to foster in very many places.

Re: Why creationism and ID are not science???
frako i hope you are in the process of a re-write for your "Why creationism and ID are not science' topic. it appears you are under many misconceptions about how conclusions are formed and why ID actually follows the same pricnicples.

So creationism follows the scientific method????

Are you sure you want to claim that?

Could you back up your claim with any evidence?

Coffee house
Coffee house needs to be shut down. It is seriously detracting from the main purpose of this website.
