I'm a stonemason but I also possess a degree in Applied Physics.

I have degrees in History and Sociology. That does not make me a Historian or a Sociologist. What it does make me is an educated, knowledgeable, sorta retired, stay at home dad. Nothing more.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

His quibbling over the spelling did not help his defense.

Years of putting up with creationist trolls has many of us leery. The things pointed out are hallmarks of a sockpuppet.
That Lomu felt the need to push his bonafides by quibbling about the spelling of the word is a worrying sign for me. I don't know or care how it is spelled. The need to correct Pressie is what is concerning.

Been down the road of sockpuppets around here for a ling time. Being cautious is not uncalled for. That is called himself a scientist just because he claims a degree in a scientific field is huge red flag. It is a classic right wing christian tactic.

Now that this has been explained lets move on.

So you are claiming you are not just some troll. How about you contribute to your own thread?
You have made no responses discussing your OP. You point to another forum so you must have a basic clue as to how forums work.
Genomicus, Pressie and Riggormortis have made substantial replies to your OP, how about having the decency to address and respond to their points.

Unless....

Still waiting
You still have not addressed any of the responses to the OP.

Where I live (Victoria) registration plates on cars are numbered like this:
LETTER-LETTER-LETTER-NUMBER-NUMBER-NUMBER

Thats's weird. The current scheme in Victoria is
NAA-NAA.

I know it is difficult when the creator of the topic doesn't even discuss the topic, but could we stay on topic. I'd like to actually see some creationist responses to the substantive posts on this thread.

Alas, if the creator of the thread doesn't want to have a substantive conversation, then I fear the thread is dead anyway.
