The Science community is ANYONE practicing Science. LOL.

Well sort of, but not really.

The science community is made up of scientists practicing science, but there's a concensus amongst scientists in any field about the state of the art in that specialism at any one time.

And much of science is settled, not in any substantive doubt. This is the case in the stuff you're blustering about.

Also, at any one time there are nutters, weirdos, conspiracy theorists, religious zealots, hobbyists and amateurs doing science, or something like it. The test of whether they're actually doing real science is whether their work stands up to other scientists analysis of their work.

Now I know nothing of which you speak but I do know that it's outwith the scientific concensus and well inside nutter territory, so you have an uphill struggle - you have to convince.

If you're hoping to convince, you have to explain. Providing bare links to videos is not convincing. Providing single sentence responses is not not convincing. Putting LOL at the end of a sentence is not convincing.

If you want to convince us, tell us the story and provide real evidence. Demonstrate the science that you claim you have.

I am currently looking into many evolutionist issues regarding age such as dinosaur tissue discoveries, c14 in tissue, the desparity issue in evolution with respect to the diversity of life in the fossil record […]

Every single one of these has been refuted many, many times. Perhaps instead of putting misplaced weight on a few non-scientific ideas that have been shown to be wrong you should question your motives for doing this?

The ONLY reason those sites exist is to push religious propaganda. Their concern with such things as carbon dating is not scientific, it's religious. It's always wrong and mostly they know it.

Why are you wasting your time reading lies on creationist web sites? Why don't you just follow the science? It's all publicly available. All arguments are not equal you know; for every claim from the creationist there's thousands of real scientific papers and tens or hundreds of years of work by thousands of real scientists backing it up.

Why are you picking at the entrails of long dead arguments?
