You must make your choice. Either this pasta dish has been, and is, Absolute Deity: or else pure poison or something worse. You can throw Him on the walls as a fool, you can spit Him up and wash Him down the trash disposer as a demon; or you can fall at His swirling feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a decent gastronomic experience. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.
Creationists admit that less than seventy years elapsed between the first brief flight in a plane by the Wright Brothers and men walking on the moon --- and yet they claim that "thousands and thousands" of years elapsed between creation and the first plane. Can anyone take this seriously? If we were created "thousands and thousands of years ago", then by now we'd have interstellar colonies.
According to creationist dogma, the Egyptians built the Pyramids "thousands and thousands" of years ago. These so-called "Egyptians" can't have been stupid. So why didn't they invent the airplane?
Bishop Bell's tomb was supposedly made "hundreds and hundreds of years ago". But it has a dinosaur carved on it. Now, we have evidence that dinosaurs are roaming the earth today (see above) but no evidence that they did so hundreds and hundreds of years ago, and no pictures of dinosaurs earlier than the so-called "nineteenth century" (according to conventional creationist dating). This proves that artifacts supposedly "hundreds and hundreds of years old" are in fact modern, for how else could they feature a modern motif such as a dinosaur?
Some far out ideas here. However the bible simply says "in the bebinning God created" It does not give a definite time to when that was - thousands, millions, billions of years ago. It doesn't say. It further describes the events taking place in connection with the earth as occuring over periods of time called days. The term day can refer to various time periods not limited to 24 hours.
Neither creationalist teaching ie earth created in 6 24 hr days or evolution agree with the evidence. Neither creationalist teaching ie earth created in 6 24 hr days or evolution agree with the evidence.
If you'd like to enlighten us on what does fit with the evidence, why not start a thread, or pick one that already exists and suits your choice of subject?
"* "Thousands And Thousands Of Years" Is Unfalsifiable
One of the criteria for a theory to be scientific is that is must be "falsifiable". The "thousands and thousands of years" theory is unfalsifiable. I just thought I'd mention this before getting back to producing my proof that it's false. No, I have never been troubled by cognitive dissonance."
If it's unfalsifiable, then how do you claim to be falsifying it eh, stupid?
And by the way, the earth is'nt "thousands and thousands" of years old. It's billions, around, say, 4.55 billion.
