Re: ...changing minds...
Citing the Institute for Creation Research will garner nothing more than laughs when it comes to science or scientific research.

Anyone so limited that they can only spell a word one way is severely handicapped!

Re: ...changing minds...
If mainstream science willingly and in an unbiased fashion carefully tested the claims of creationists there would be no reason for all these websites, just a communal commitment to scientific truths.

That is the kind of post that only serves to make Christians look at best like fools and actually more like dishonest con men.

Who the hell do you think produced the evidence that the earth was old and that there never was a Biblical flood?

Two hundred years ago the sciences were run by Christians and when the good Christians went out and actually looked at what is really there, what God actually wrote and created, they found that what they had believed about the world, things like Usher's age of the world or the Biblical Floods or the Conquest of Canaan as described in Joshua or the Exodus simply didn't happen.

Over the last 200 years evidence has continued to roll in and from independent lines of inquiry that those who came before could not even imagine. And all of the evidence has supported old earth, evolution, close relationships between all the great apes including humans, no Biblical flood ...

Today's Creationists are simply in denial and totally out of touch with reality.

One thing is true though. It's far easier to claim to do science than it is to actually do science and as long as it is so profitable to just rake in money from Creationists through talks and donations and phony amusement parks that call themselves "Museums" there is no incentive to do otherwise.

Thar's Gold in them thar Creationists pockets.

Re: ...changing minds...
But there is evidence of evolution and no evidence of any design or designer.

Re: ...changing minds...
Yes. They begin with the lie that they are doing science and so everything from that point on is suspect.

Re: ...changing minds...
You were the one who brought up the designer. I was simply pointing out that once again, you were wrong.

if what you say is true then the Biblical floods did not happen.
- Not all humans died during the flood.
- The flood did not cover all land, mostly the coastal areas were the first civilizations were created.

If true then the Biblical flood myths simply did not happen.

- Although scientists invent fictional scenarios, historical data from previous civilizations put the flood around 10-13,000 years ago.

I imagine you actually can provide such historical data?
