Re: By Faith from
was probably the result of the ice age that followed the Flood.

Not much of an age if it only lasted a few hundred years at most. Also, how come there is no historical record of this post flud ice age?

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.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Re: By Faith from
Who said the ice age only lasted a few hundred years?

You obviously have no idea what the term "ice age" means. So glacial ice didn't create the lakes in Minnesota? Your jesus daddy poofed them into existence?

I figure I would have to personally examine the tree rings very closely to arrive at a meaningful theory.


Freaking hilarious. Here is the key issue with all the fundies. They actually think that expertise means nothing. They truly think that they are as capable of understanding ALL aspects of science as well as experts in the fields. As if she could actually examine never mind understand the tree rings. This is the same nutball that claims she can't read her computer screen and thinks she will be able to count tree rings.
Aren't there admonitions against hubris in their works of scripture?

Re: By Faith from
The bible doesn't say that there weren't flying sharks with lasers for eyes either. So I guess there must have been how the Israelites were able to escape from the Egyptians.

Re: The Vexed Problem for Creationists of Providing Evidence
Because the evidence he wants to present is his feelings and word salad that "Pastors" present. Most of these yahoos have no formal training in anything. Why should we trust them even understanding what evidence is?

More llke eight years here, maybe nine,

Interesting. According to your profile you joined on 10-06-2001. Did you assume someone elses profile.
There are a few posts under this name in 2001 and then a lot starting in 2005. Even if we ignore 2001 there have been regular posts under this name for 15 years.

Cuz I've read a lot of books and other stuff about evolution and geology.

Name some.

Re: evidence?
I've analyzed the Grand Canyon in great detail.

How? Have you been there and analyzed the rocks? Drilled bore holes? Follow the transitions down? Looked at all the layers? Have you taken graduate level courses on Geology? Or how about just college level?

Re: Geological Column/ Time Scale is Over and Done With
So you use the Jurassic as evidence for your arguments but only believe the earth is a couple thousand years old.
Interesting.

So was the Jurrasic a couple weeks in your timeline?
