Dishonesty
I can't take Mindspawn's posts seriously when he starts off being dishonest from the get-go.

My main problem with carbon dating is its calibration against tree ring chronology...

Bullshit. His main problem with carbon dating is that it contradicts his belief in a young Earth.

All he's doing is looking for ways to hide that contradiction, regardless of whether or not he has to be honest about it.

Who cares whether mindspawn ever admits it

Well, the participants... I suspect it derives from hope.

The hope that maybe, just maybe, the other guy is honest. Maybe he'll actually consider the evidence.

Unfortunately, its not there in this case. As I said, Mindspawn is not honest.

That makes him a lost cause.

On the flip side, at least the evidence is there chilling out, waiting until the next one comes along. Hopefully, they'll be honest ones.

Makes me ashamed to be a Christian, really. These fucktards...

Re: Today's posts...
Folks who base their beliefs on the bible or other ancient tribal myths are not amenable to evidence.

Not necessarily. See my "signature" for a quote form a famous "Bible-believer"...


The truth of our faith becomes a matter of ridicule among the infidels if any Catholic, not gifted with the necessary scientific learning, presents as dogma what scientific scrutiny shows to be false. - St. Thomas Aquinas

Re: Today's posts...
I'm familiar with that quote.
Unfortunately, a lot of folks today don't take it to heart.

I think the good Saint, when faced with Mindspawn's arguments, would just give himself a facepalm and shake his head in disbelief.

Yeah, so would Jesus. The point was that they/we're not all that bad (which I see you've gotten), granting that you did insinuate.

Re: Focus may be the key
Focus may be the key

I think you're underestimating the power of dishonesty... but I guess we'll see.

Good suggestion.

RAZD should use his admirable patience to concisely refute Mindie's points one at a time so that he can't weasel out of directly addressing RAZD's points.

If it ain't weaseling-out it'll just be some other bullshit. Like completely-disregarding or totally-ignoring...

I've lost all hope with this one, from the get-go.
