Re: Creation Science Vs Science
The rejection of the Flood hypothesis was wrong, based on a failure to imagine the sheer magnitude of such an event.
Regardless of the magnitude, we know beyond a reasonable doubt that because of the clear lack of a genetic bottleneck in humans, that the entire planet has not been covered in water since humans have been here. QED.

Re: Creation Science Vs Science
I guess you missed the discussions of the genetic bottleneck that prove you wrong.
Impossible, there is no genetic bottleneck in humans.
And genetic bottlenecks in other species are irrelevant.
They cannot be from The Flood since we know that the entire planet has not been covered in water since humans have been here.
A genetic bottleneck in another species must have come about by a different means than The Flood.

Re: Yes the Stratigraphic Column is OVER WITH
The Stratigraphic Column is a very particular stack of sedimentary rocks, it is not just any sedimentary layers.
*sigh* - I've been explaining to you for years that there is no such thing as THE Stratigraphic/Geological Column.
From 2016, Message 539:
Sorry, there is only ONE geological column on which the Geo Timetable is based.
Sure, but that's abstraction. There is not an actual geological column that has all of the layers in it.
Different places on the planet have different stratum in their individual geological columns. So really, there are lots and lots of geological columns.
What is refered to as The Geological Column is an artifact of summing all of the individual geological columns into one master geological column, but its not a real thing that exists in the planet rather it is a concept of what all of the stratum together would look like.
There is only ONE kind of strata that I'm ever talking about, so no, I'm not going to stop talking about them as one particular phenomenon.
But you're not talking about a real thing. You're talking about an abstraction as if it is a real thing. That's only ever going to lead you astray and cause confusion.
Nowhere on Earth is there a place where The Geological Column exists in it entirety.
You know, if you Google "the geological column" then you get either creationist sites talking about it, or evolutionist sites talking about the creationist sites talking about it. You don't get any scientific sites talking about it:
Why do you think that is?
From 2014, Message 1265:
No, that is not the Geologic Column. Sheesh.
I didn't say it was. I said it was a geological column, which it is.
There isn't really an actual real thing that is the geological column, because its going to be different at different places.
What people refer to as the Geological Column is just an abstraction that represents all of the layers underground.
And it can certainly contain volcanic layers, and layers that aren't completely flat.
