Re: A Digression to define the Theory of Evolution
Faith writes:
I had more in mind collecting instances of dogmatic statements about both geological and evolutionary information without giving the evidence because I was frustrated with having run into both.
If it's about dogmatic statements that you have run into, shouldn't it be you who gives the examples?

An honest discussion is more of a peer review than a pep rally. My toughest critics here are the people who agree with me. -- ringo

Re: subjective interpretation
Faith writes:
The strata full of dead things are just one facet of what the Flood did; why would you think I consider that "perfect" anyway?
God did it, so in your world death must be a good thing.

Rather than her admitting to ever being boxd in a corner, she likely would argue that her opponents refuse to seriously entertain her view and that she feels unfairly forced to consider theirs.
Suppose you believed that airplanes fly because of fairies holding up the wings - but every pilot and aeronautical engineer in the world refused to accept your "explanation". Is it really unreasonable for you to be "forced" to consider the opinion of everybody who knows anything about it?

Most obviously the result of the Flood or the tectonic events afterward.
There were no tectonic events afterward. Read your Bible.

Why do you have the silly idea it should be in the Bible?
Why do you have the silly idea that the Bible wouldn't mention such a momentous event immediately after and directed related to the momentous event of the Flood?

Re: Tectonic bashing and crashing
Faith writes:
The boat may have rocked some or maybe not, nothing momentous. The Bible does mention earthquakes when they affect people.
We're talking about natural forces momentous enough to create enormous rock formations. You want to pretend that they wouldn't have effected the ark at all?
