Re: evidence?

That's OK, I'm used to it and I don't see any point in trying again to get any of it across.

We understand what you are saying just fine. What you lack is evidence and grounding in basic physics. If I said that pigs fly you would understand what I am trying to get across, but you wouldn't believe me.

Re: evidence?

The evidence that would support Faith's position would be finding everything that lived at the same time jumbled up together unless she can provide the model, mechanism, process, procedure or method that allowed either of the Biblical Floods to sort the life forms in the order we find them in reality.

Not only sort life itself, but also sort igneous rock layers so that the ratios of isotopes in those rocks correlates with the species found above and below them. Faith can dispute the accuracy of radiometric dating, but Faith can't dispute the fact of those measured isotope ratios.

If so, why do you try to "reason" that the Flood is "impossible"? Is there a chance that a fictional thing is possible?

Is it possible that Hugh Heffner was the 40th US president?

What you seem to miss is that we have the geologic record, and there is no evidence of a recent global flood. That's what makes a recent global flood impossible.

Re: Time scales
Juvenissun writes:

So, on one hand, you talk geology to "prove" the Flood is not possible.
On the other hand, you said Noah is a fictional person, so both Noah and the Flood are not possible.

Noah, as depicted in the Bible, did not exist because a global flood did not exist. If there was a Noah he is not the person described in the Bible.

If so, why should I bother to talk to you on geology and science?

Why do you ignore geology and the sciences?

Not really. The earth has a lot of granite. The moon has none.

You probably think cookies aren't made from flour, butter, shortening, eggs, and other ingredients. You probably think cookies are made of cookies.

Edited by Taq, : No reason given.
