As long as you and the rest of the creationist community fail to engage in proper and honest scholarship, nobody will take any of your flimsy false claims seriously.
This guy isn't messing around. He's going to try and spout all the PRATTs before he runs away. It's a shame really, I haven't seen a new, original creationist claim in more than a decade.
Radiocarbon dating has a big list of creationist PRATTs associated with it.
I'm always amazed that they are not embarrassed for spouting that BS, considering how simple and straight forward the concepts of radiocarbon dating and radiometric dating are.
These methods are supported by Terabytes of data. Radioactive decay is well understood and huge databases have been developed that document isotopic decay chains.
I guess when you are as ignorant candle 2 you can't be embarrassed by your ignorance. These guys do really well in the legislatures of republican states.

Re: End Time Scenarios Are Possible
I will admit to being nervous over the possibility of a one-world secular manifesto.
You mean something like "All humans have the same rights and responsibilities, no matter their sex, skin color, regional origin, or wealth"? Or "Taxes are the price of civilization"?

Re: Ringo/Phat Synopsis
Yes. Just because the Fed says it does not make it automatically true or factual.
I would say that applies in every situation, truth should never be automatically assumed, but you switched from diplomatic "exaggerated falsehoods" to "truth" of what the Fed says.
Message 675
I would go so far as to say that in any diplomatic situation, lies and exaggerated falsehoods are usually involved by at least one party.
So, I'm not sure if you are saying we can never trust what the other side says in diplomatic situations, or that since WE always lie in diplomatic situations we should assume that everyone else also lies in diplomatic situations, and that we should never trust anything the Fed says in diplomatic situations?
You do realize that saying lies and exaggerated falsehoods in the same sentence is the same as saying lies and damned lies, right? It's just you trying to make it sound like you are providing more details to your post without actually providing more details.

Re: Climate Change Triggers The End Times
So, when were you thinking that pestilence, war, and famine were not happening somewhere in the world? Or are you just talking about in the U.S.? They seem like a pretty constant part of the human experience , to me.

Re: Climate Change Triggers The End Times
so I will publically state what I believe is 85% certain to happen in at least some measure.
So, 85% of at least some. That's 29% better than every biblical prophesy!
