Re: Sources
Major faux paus on my part, this should never have been promoted.

Participants in this thread should take care to not invest much time until Contingent's familiarity with the topic becomes more clear.

yet you cannot prove it was me who actually wrote them. sure you may trace the computer connection but you still cannot prove that it was actually me who typed those words. you can assume but you will never really know now will you.

The goal of EvC Forum is to provide a venue for constructive discussion between creationists and evolutionists. Please help the forum achieve this goal. Thanks.

then you must keep in mind that 1. christians are not allowed to follow secularists or their ways, which means discussion with them will not be on your playing field; 2. christians follow God and their thinking will be based on the Bible which means you cannot disallow their resources for that would be a double standard and unfair.; 3. if you want your scientific papers, conclusions observations respected then you must respect the christian equivelant.

EvC Forum already has a set of Forum Guidelines that you agreed to follow when you joined. They are neutral with respect to one's position in the creation/evolution debate, and we have a team of moderators who enforce them. Members are nor permitted to impose or enforce their own personal set of guidelines.

If you find EvC's Forum Guidelines acceptable then welcome aboard!

chapters and verses please.


I'll get back to you this evening (my time).

Could you please take this part of the discussion to a thread over in the The Bible: Accuracy and Inerrancy forum?

Re: Uranium Halos and Redirect on 14C
Hi Archaeologist,

I noticed with regret this morning that you were suspended a few hours ago. There seems to have been some concern about your volume of messages and how well they were addressing the topic. If you click on the red suspension symbol you'll see the reason Adminnemooseus gave for the suspension, and the moderators will be discussing your situation later today.

I haven't finished reading all the posts from last night, but here's a little information that you might find helpful.

  • You seem very sensitive to the way you're treated, but to the moderators it appears that you're being treated pretty much the same way you're treating everyone else. For instance, when you posted this in Message 97:

    archaeologist writes:

    so, do any of you have legitimate, sioncere, and honest answers to that question?

    You were in essence saying that people had been posting illegitimate, insincere and dishonest answers. You've been harping on other people's honesty and objectivity since the day you joined. With your continual questioning of everyone's integrity, what kind of tone were you expecting in the responses?

    Please let the moderators handle moderation issues. If you feel you're being treated unfairly then the complaints should be taken to the Report discussion problems here: No.2 thread.

  • Your arguments do not usually reference any evidence. In the science forums arguments should be based upon evidence. The Forum Guidelines are fairly general on most points, but rule 4 touches on this:

    1. Points should be supported with evidence and/or reasoned argumentation. Address rebuttals through the introduction of additional evidence or by enlarging upon the argument. Do not repeat previous points without further elaboration. Avoid bare assertions.

Hope this helps, and we all hope to see you back soon.

Please, no responses to this message in this thread. Responses should be posted to Report discussion problems here: No.2.

If you'd like to discuss your views about science then submit a thread proposal over in the Proposed New Topics forum. I will promote it to the Is It Science? forum as quickly as I can give it a proper review.
