I had an email conversation with Safarti once. He was an ass. He is especially touchy when you ask him his qualifications to discuss the subjects he expounds on.

I guess a doctorate in Chemistry makes you an expert on all scientific subjects.
I do not care what his specialty is, he is a condescending ass, that is incapable of defending his own arguments.

All bullshit when looked at objectively and scientifically. Why do you think you only find this crap on fringe, nonscientific websites.

Re: More amazing sorting
Bullshit. The reason is that there is no evidence. It has all been debunked. Present it if you have it. If not retract.

Thats roghtRe: More amazing sorting
That's right people have never imagined things that never existed. That you think serpopauds mean people lived with dinosaurs means a lot about your critical thinking skills and your ability to discern reality.

Are you ready to present your evidence on mermaids? Griffins?

Re: More amazing sorting
You keep up bringing up OOPARTS but present nothing to back your claims. Just assertion after assertion.
You claim that scientists ignore them because they don't want to be ostracized. But scientists have looked at them and have found the evidence lacking. Present evidence to back your claim about why scientists don't support you. Some scientist must have told you this or else you would just be pulling arguments out of your ass. You wouldn't do that would you?
Present your artifacts and we will review them. Look at the evidence and determine where the evidence leads.
I hope they are a higher class than your claim the Narmer tablet represents actual dinosaurs.

Re: Stromatolites
I did edit my post as I studied more on stromatolites

You are presenting arguments on the formation of stromatolites and you are just studying up on them now? Maybe you should acknowledge that you are a bit put of your field of expertise.

The hubris is astounding.

Re: Narmer Tablets
It takes a free thinker

You present yourself as a freethinker? You really should learn what the word means. I do love your gish gallop and how you hand wave away all arguments.

But always the academic mind should consider the alternatives and truly weigh up the core evidence for a view.

An academic mind should follow the evidence where ever it goes. You sir are incapable of that. Everything for you leads to the bible. All data is used to construct evidence for a biblical view. You will consider nothing else. That defines a closed mind. Do not insult others by claiming an open mind or assuming the mantle of a freethinker.

Re: Stromatolites
Therefore I am open to learning.

No you are not. Don't lie to us. Don't insult us. You are attempting to proselytize, nothing more nothing less. All roads lead to the bible for you. That is not being open to learning.

At the same time I like a good point and a logical argument.

Another lie. You think only you make good points. You wouldn't know a logical argument if it bit you on the ass. Your claim of the legitimacy of OOPARTS shows clearly an inability to possess critical thinking skills. You accept these hook, line and sinker without actually examining and processing the data and evidence.
Present them. Make a good point and logical argument for them.

I am not an expert.

You should listen to the experts. They are the ones you are trying to shovel your bs to.

Re: The bible: 14 pairs
So you admit there is a contradiction.
No it is not a legal document, but you want it to be more. Do you not see the cognitive dissonance in your argument?

Re: OOPARTS
I have no evidence that would be accepted on this site.

Meaning you have no evidence. If you did you would present it. You know it does not stand up to scrutiny. You accept it on belief alone.

some will be very convinced

Not if they look at the actual evidence.
eyewitness reports

No one disputes that someone found them. What they are, is disputed.
But there are many , many more of these Out Of Place Artifacts which are not studied by mainstream science.

They have all been studied and found wanting.
Your lack of faith in them is very telling.

Re: Loony theory/Obvious theory
I feel no obligation to prove myself to you, just because of your insulting manner.

I see self awareness is not one of your strong suits.
