The biblical distinction that true humans are made in the “image of God” is disregarded.
How could scientists have missed the 'proper' definition of a hominid for so long?

I wonder if they have a jpeg of the image of god that I could borrow...

Who is your great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather?

If you descended from him then how come you don't know who he is?

Huh! Chimps are just as likely to have evolved from a human like ancestor as humans are to have evolved from a chimp like ancestor.

But chimpanzees did not evolve from a human-like ancestor.

I imagine that you have evidence of someone that lived to be at least 123?


My ex-girlfriend's father's neighbour once bought a car from a man who had heard about a girl who once worked in a shop owned by a lady who was 125!

And that was 10 years ago...
She'll be 135 by now!!

If you can't see the differences between the two images (frako and RAZD) then I can't really help you. You need an optician!


And if your ability to use English is so feeble that you are unable to describe the differences that you see then we really can't help you. You need an education!

Coyote is probably the best person on this thread...


Since Big_Al32 is determined to remain completely ignorant, Coyote is actually the worst person in this thread.

It is best for Big_Al32 if he avoids talking to anyone who is fully educated in the sphere of knowledge that Big_Al32 wants to remain wrong about.

We all have a brain, but some creationists are convinced that it is best used as a paperweight.

Your suggestion that YECs are presuppositionalists interests me however. I suspect they are. And that they are not alone. Are you saying that scientists in the disciplines of physics, chemistry, geology and cosmology have found some epistemic foundation which involves no presuppositions?


A presuppositionalist is not simply someone that has presuppositions.
It is someone that claims that all reasoning is dependant on christian truth and morality.
