It's only too clear that it describes a Young Earth, and the reason some Christians disagree is merely that they are swayed by the claims of science, poor confused things.

Actually, its only too clear that it describes an old Earth. The reason some book-worshipers think it describes a young one is because they've been tricked by the devil. Dumbasses.

Re: Science meets Faith
but there are no effects of the supposed ordering of the fossil record that demand the theory of evolution to explain them. It's purely a conjecture based on nothing but imagination, that can be answered by other conjectures. There is no way to test or prove it. It remains a theory for this reason, a hypothesis, a conjecture. The worldwide Flood does a much better job of explaining the actual phenomena of the geologic column than evolution does.

Then continue with the debate on this where we left off. Message 357

quote:
--Human and dinosaur fossils (or, more accurately, bones) are found in the same strata.

This is not at all necessary according to the Flood view which has all the strata having been laid down at the same time so that all the fossils in all the strata represent creatures that were all living at the same time.

But that is just a post-hoc rationalization of the pre-conceived Flood scenario. That is, you don't have any idea what the Flood conditions would have done, you just already believe in the Flood, then you see that the strata looks a particular way, so then you decide that the Flood must have done it that way. That is not intellectually honest, its just wishful thinking.

Anyways, the fossils in the strata are organized so that more primitive animals are on the bottom and more advanced ones are on top. Too, there's not a single advanced organism in the bottom strata nor any primitive ones in the top. Like this:

You never find any of the holocene animals in the cambrian layer, nor any of the jurassic animals in the holocene layer.

It is impossible for The Flood to have filtered out and organized all the animals into neat layers like that without a single exception anywhere in the world. Not one single arrowhead made its way down with a trilobyte into the lower layers. Not a single dinosaur escaped the layers that ended up fossilizing everything. There's no way for that to happen with a Flood without some sort of magic directly from God. But that's not what Flood proponents argue, they act as if it was all due to naturalistic mechanisms. Unfortunately, if you do invoke God, then you have to admit that he is playing a trick on us in making it look like it happened over a long period of time.


But reply in that thread as its off topic here.

Re: Science meets Faith
You're worthless anyways. Actually, due to your dishonesty, you're making this place worse off.

You're a side-show freak that everyone is laughing at. People can't resist poking you with a stick.

I feel no shame for calling out a surly curmudgeon who won't stop lying.
