I will review each of your comments in order,

1.What creationists believe

Genesis 1:26 (KJV) "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. "

so according to you, we are all made in the image of dogs. Also, who are you to say what others believe without evidence on the topic. So either we are all dogs which is clearly not the case, or your wrong about creationist beliefs.

2.Soft tissue in dinosaur bones

supposing what you claim is correct, (without source by the way), couldn't the fossils have allready been buried, it has been scientifically evident that soft tissue can be preserved almost indefinatlly in unoxygenated environments. Also, this relies on current forms of dating from radioactive material is accurate.


(http://www.britannica.com/eb/article-9032594/Enckes-Comet) Encke's comet was first observed in 1786 according to that study it should be dead by now.

4."Thousands And Thousands Of Years" Is Unfalsifiable
no proof

5.Population Growth

you are assuming that other species and environmental changes di not affect the population growth of the elephants. Also, with the elimination of some pretators, this value could have changed

6.Change in Sea Level

The bay of Fundy may not have existed at this time. Also, this is assuming that none of the water is replaced back into the Bay of Fundy

7.No new sorts of animals

I apoligize for my lack of sources here, but Microevolution evolution within species is not very debatable. Over time species can change, but they still cannot gain traits. It is true that a lion cannot turn into a leopard, but only because they are of a different genus.

8.No Intermediate Forms

in inter species microevolution, it is not neccessary for intermediate species. According to (http://www.scienceagainstevolution.org/v1i4f.htm) "When Darwin was on the Galapagos Islands, he correctly observed that some finches, which had been separated from other finches of the same species, had acquired distinctive characteristics (unusual beaks or feathers). He correctly concluded that these birds had evolved, in a particular sense of the word. They truly had undergone microevolution."

9 Dinosaurs Are Still Roaming The Earth

One witness is hardly evidence. I do not know the reply to this witness, but if this were so, there would be more witnesses of dinosaurs than there are.

10.Anatoly Formenko's Unclaimed Prize

no one would devout their life for $10,000.

11.Gaps In The Theory

creationists know what is needed to be known. Why does it matter what Augustus Caesar's favorite color was?

12. No Evidence

The evidence is simply the geneology given in the bible. A creationist belief is that the bible is infallible. Thus its geneology is given as the point of creation.

13.Repeatable Observations

so by that theory it is unscientific to think that any president before your birth did not exist

14. Creationists Admit The Earth Is Young

young is relative. A creationist could say the earth is young, thousands of years can be considered young relative to the lifetime of a star or such

15. Omphalos

a slight degree of faith is required for anything to be believed, thus believing you were created last Thursday means that your memories prior to last Thursday had no conscequences. Seing as the events prior to last further still affect you, they are, by all conventional means to have existed. A lack of proof on this spaghetti monster allows me to disbelieve its existance.

i wont bother answering the rest of this, its meaningless.

Microevolution = evolution

A lion turning into a leopard is NOT evolution. Being in a different genus has nothing to do with it.


yes, well microevolution does not contradict creationist beliefs.
