Re: Origin of asteroids in the Flood
I don't normally comment on what Faith writes down, but this one was particularly funny:

Faith writes:

Once a scientist is committed to a particular theory of age...

We all have been told numerous times what a theory is in science.

Age is not a theory.

To you, the ability to understand basic geology may indeed seem amazing, verging on the supernatural. For me it's trivial --- as subjects go, it's a lot easier than advanced math.

As a practising geologist with a little bit of understanding of maths (actually not much); Amen to that.

Re: the so called evidence
Somehow Faith still doesn't know that science doesn't work on 'proof', but on scientific evidence...where's Faith been the last 300 years?

His method is still all you've got for the age of the earth.

Nope.

Don't fool yourself.

I'll start.

Theespruit Formatian. Komati Formation. Hooggenoeg Formation. Kromberg Formation. Onverwacht Group. Empangeni Suite. Commondale Formation. De Kraalen Formation. Assegai Formation. Dwalile Formation. Nondweni Group. Kraaipan Group. Bandelierkop Formation. Beit Bridge Formation. Ngawane Gr. Steynsdorp Pl. Tsawela Gr. Vlakplaats Gd. Doornhoek Tr. Stolzburg Gn. Theespruit Pl. First Barberton Mountain Land metamorphism.

We've got plenty.

Any arguments left?

Re: the so called evidence
He-he-he

Incomprohensible? The gold mining companies operating in my country sure don't find those those names incomprehensible at all.

Any comment about those 'incomprehensible names' yet?

Re: the so called evidence
Sure is in science.

Whether you like it or not. You can't change facts.

You're allowed to have your own opinions; not your own facts.

Re: the so called evidence
Faith writes:

If those are angular conformities I'd explain them the same way I explain Siccar Point. But just making an incomprehensible list of names isn't an argument.

These are not just names. They're rocks. Rocks Geologists named. Tens of thousands of geologists. Tens of thousand of different rock 'kinds'.

For very, very good reasons. They studied those rocks. Nothing incomprehensible it at all. All published in peer-reviewed geological journals. Not in religious propaganda on the internet.

Re: the so called evidence
Maybe if you could just try to start studying the basics of geology, then you could stop being seen as just another fruit loop when commenting on geology?
