Re: more misinformation

I thought the reverse osmosis machines actually put water through a plastic to remove complex molecules, was more pure than distilled water

The problem with this analogy is that the pores in the plastic are large enough to allow water molecule through, but too small for the impurities. If you use plastic with pores that are too small, no water will go through. In the crystals that are dated using these methods, the "pores" are too small to allow much leakage of argon in either direction.

Yes, and maybe science will move forward and we will flip our circle a 180 and spin in the same direction as those who think diseases are caused by demons. And the eclipse is a monster eating the sun. And the flat earthers, don't forget the flat earthers.

Re: more misinformation
Chiroptera, Acutally the bible says he sits on the circle of the earth, and heaven is his throne, sound more like a satellight in a circular orbit, where the inhabitant's are as grasshoppers, etc...

JM: Snelling has no publications. If I flip to that direction, I am in big trouble. YOur premise of comparing osmosis to argon diffusion into mineral lattice sites is wrong. It would help if you understood the process of osmosis, diffusion and mineral chemistry. That does not appear to be on your horizon or interest so what other examples of scientific misunderstanding can you toss out?

Cheers

We know that. And Hebrew has distinct words for "circle" - the flat thing - and for "sphere" or ball. Sounds that flat-earthers to me: the same folks are frequently young-earthers, and for identical reasons.

Coragyps, It says they looked as grasshoppers, sound more like an inference that the earth is round, and heaven is his throne, etc...
P.S. Its time to sit back and watch football!!!!!!!

Exactly. Round, as in disk-shaped. And immovable, too: there's lots of scriptural backup for both, and just as much scientific evidence for either as for a young earth. But that's another thread, and one that's been ridden to death already.

Chiroptera, God is a space alien living in a satellite?

Whatever, I didn't see anything in the bible suggesting he is an alien living in a satellite, it does say heaven is his throne, and earth is to be his footstool, it also says, he has no place to lay his head, he is the root of David and the bright and morning star, the wisemen even saw his star move(wasn't like any planet, asteroid, or comet)for it went before them, leading them and stopped above to where God the word had become clothed in flesh(Emmanuel, God with us), he said to the apostles that they would not beable to follow, after his ressurection in reference to him being carried back up into heaven, though when we die, our spirit goes up to be with the Lord, and them that are not of the Lord, well that's another story, etc...

P.S. Just responding to your question, if Jesus has no place to lay his head, don't see how that would suggest he is an alien, though he came down and became clothed in flesh, the seed of a woman, he is the root of David, and the bright and morning star, though he had died, he had the power over his own death(no bones were broken, etc...)and to take his life again(his resurrection from the dead), etc..., he is God the Son(the bright and morning star), and he died, but is now alive in the flesh, forevermore, the ressurection and the life, has the keys of hell and of death, and when he comes back it will be as the lightning coming out of the east, meaning he is not sitting on the earth, but up above, etc...

Were the creationists lying?

No, I don't think so, just like any scientist, they are giving their scientific point of view of an observation.
