Re: Whatever floats your boat
Brilliant summary of the properties of gopherwood, Iblis! Those properties together with its tensile strength being greater than that of titanium-carbon nanofiber composites explains it all!

GOPHER WOOD, folks!! Works like balsa, stronger than aerospace composites, pegs itself together, pumps ordure overboard all by itself! Slices, dices, makes Julienne fries! Induces suspended animation in animals near it!

GOPHER WOOD, that's the ticket! Enough of this teak babbling!

This pitch covering was probably natural bitumen that was commonly found in seepages in the Middle East.

Yeah. Bitumen, the tarry fractions of petroleum found in seepages from rocks in the Middle East. Petroleum from living material that drowned in the Flood in rocks from sediments that were all buried by the Flood. Which hadn't happened yet.

Why isn't that real convincing?

And why are we worried here about the etymology of the English word "gopher" when Genesis was written down in Hebrew a millenium and a half before the English or Old French languages existed?

Re: Creationism vs. Creation Science
Do all creation scientists take the bible as inherrant, or do they just look to prove creation?

Apparently, all of them that don't take the Qur'an as inerrant do. I've been in a couple of discussions with YECs that begin by saying they aren't religiously motivated, but they always seem to let that facade slip after a while.
