|I've learned over the years that it doesn't matter what evidence is put forth if you're conversing with a group of people who have closed off their ability to remain open minded because of their philosophical beliefs.|
Some people are so thick headed that they'll believe the asteroid belt was created by rocks blasted off of earth - regardless of the fact that basic physics says its impossible.
Some people will believe the continents moved from Pangea to their current positions in 24 hours. With people on them who didn't find this an event worthy of note. Physics says they'd all be vaporized anyway. Can you believe that?
Some people are so attached to the young earth idea that they'll even decide the speed of light must have changed, regardless of the rather noticeable effect this would have had, and regardless of not having any evidence that it ever happened.
Isn't it amazing how closed minded people can be?
You owe me a new irony meter, by the way.
To rebut creationism you pretty much have to be a biologist, chemist, geologist, philosopher, lawyer and historian all rolled into one. While to advocate creationism, you just have to be an idiot. -- tommorris
