I gather there was some bad biblical theology that was used against Galileo also, but even Wikipedia lays the problem on the Church's adherence to Aristotle and Ptolemy:

Just as you are currently using bad biblical theology, and it is made worse by your adherence to young Earth creationists.

Re: to GDR: Word of God is both Christ and Scripture
Faith writes:

Biblical Inerrancy is standard accepted dogma, and this statement was signed by some of the biggest names in evangelicalism.

Then why do you use an interpretation of the Bible that is shown to be false by all of the evidence science has found? If the Bible is inerrant then a young Earth has to be false just as Geocentrism has to be false.

Re: to GDR: Word of God is both Christ and Scripture
Faith writes:

First, I don't know if those signers find the Young Earth in scripture, it isn't mentioned in the document. I think it's pretty inescapable myself but I don't want to impose that on them. My own view is that it is there and that means the Old Earth is simply wrong. The document merely says that wherever there is conflict with science the Bible is right and will eventually be shown to be right.

I don't see geocentrism in the Bible though.

Plenty of people saw Geocentrism in the Bible, and they used the same exact arguments you are using for a young Earth. We might as well throw a Flat Earth into the mix as well.

Let's say I have a text that I claim is inerrant because it came from a deity. My interpretation of that text leads me to believe that it unequivocally states that the Earth is flat. Wouldn't you conclude that the text I have is in error and was therefore not written by a deity? If so, do you understand the problems that YEC poses for biblical inerrancy?

Re: So when does Biblical Inerrancy stand up to the objections?
Faith writes:

You misunderstand the title. It's not a matter of proving it, Bible inerrancy stands against all objections because it denies them any validity.

Then you must also reject Heliocentrism and a round Earth on the same grounds that you reject evolution and an old Earth.
