|That's the reasoning you guys use. Oh-- clown shoes made a mistake, so that means he knows nothing, therefore all evidence for a young earth is nullified and evolution is true.|
Clownshoes, no one has said this, no one would say this. If they said this in my presence I would be all over them vastly harder than I would pounce on any mistake you may or may not have made.
I know this is shocking, but just maybe, juuuuuust maybe there are a couple of punters here that know more about this subject than you, or even your heroes Gish, Ham, Baugh, Hovind etc etc etc etc ad very large nauseum.
I know, shocking isn't it. Anyway, I know you're having fun sneering at people with a greater understanding of the subjects at hand than you, and nailing yourself to a martyr's cross because we're so mean, so I'll leave you to enjoy yourself.
ETA: In case you haven't got it yet, take this tiny piece of advice: You said you work in the building trade. I couldn't build a building if my life depended on it, I haven't the first clue about building. Oh I can stick one brick on top of another with some tiny chance of not being mocked off the site by a real bricky. Both my grandfathers were chippies and taught me a lot so I can do a good bit of carpentry. I know some basic electrics and plumbing, but beyond that I leave it all to the relevant experts. I know my limits. This doesn't mean I cannot learn these things, this means I currently have not learned them. (Same applies to you btw)
Imagine if I came to your workplace, the pub/bar you have a beer in with your buddies, or perhaps even a message board on the internet you frequent which, whilst there is a lot of irrelevant banter and silliness, was populated by a bunch of builders and experts on building topics. Imagine I then burst into this place and started spouting off about how stupid what all these people thought and knew was, how sophomoric and mean they all were. Imagine if I started regurgitating age old nonsense, long refuted, about how to build a house by hanging bricks on sky hooks and building down (sky hooks it should be noted, don't exist). Imagine if I did so very arrogantly, with a tone of condescension. What reaction would I get? Like it or not this is the equivalent of what you are doing.
You might not realise it but you are utterly transparent in this regard. We've seen it all before. Your claims aren't new, your manner is certainly not new, and the utter pap you are spouting about science is hilariously nonsensical. It's ok, I know you don't get this. Just think about it. As mean as Lou's message comes across, as mean as I come across (and I am a terrible meanie!), listen to it, he's right. Do your research FIRST. It's pretty clear that you haven't despite what you claim.
