Re: "All Science is Historical Science"
Just more definitional questionbegging. Either you can validate your interpretations to the satisfaction of all who understand your test or you have only interpretations. Too much of both old earth geology and evolutionist genetics is nothing but interpretation that is subject to other interpretations. But apparently nobody wants to recognize what this controversy is REALLY about, you'd rather define it out of existence, makes you all feel warm and fuzzy.

Re: Leaving Creationism
Another poor creationist succumbs to the spell of sophisticated word magic. Even though he supposedly retains much of his creationist mindset, in reality he lost it in the classroom.

As I began doing real academic research, though, I saw over and over that deep time and evolutionary biology have real, demonstrable applications.

But they don't, that is an illusion created by the word magic.

Medical research that depends on evolution seems suspicious to me.

As well it should because there is no medical research that depends on evolution. Typically this kind of mistake comes from the habit of treating microevolution as part of evolutionary theory, and that's probably because creationists don't make enough of the fact that microevolution is really just the built in variations that belong to the genome of each Kind and that macroevolution cannot possibly follow from it.

I still assume exposed rock layers on a cliff face represent a global, cataclysmic flood.

And they do. Too bad evo word magic talked him out of that one too.

Re: Leaving Creationism
If you look at "Thread Details" it would appear this thread has been used for debate for a very long time already
