|I wouldn't necessarily call all atheists liars, but their problem is they simply cannot see the truth...consequently, untruths and wild guessing get passed over as reality.|
As it happens, PZ Myers addresses this over at his blog. Maybe it's because rocks and critters are more honest than creationists
|I've just come back from my introductory biology classroom in which I've been trying hard to convince students of an important historical fact: the scientists, especially the geologists, who came up with the idea that the earth was old were working in a Christian tradition, and they came up with their ideas because they needed to explain the evidence, not because they were driven by theological considerations or because they had been bribed by the Evil Atheist Conspiracy. Sometimes you just have to put them in the shoes of a geologist in 1850 to get them to see the true motives.|
|It's a sign of the degeneracy of the modern creationist that instead of grappling with these questions honestly, as the 19th century creationists/natural historians did, they instead simply deny the existence of the evidence.|
I like that last line "It's a sign of the degeneracy of the modern creationist". People like SuperSport and slimy Sal just don't get it.
SuperSport, please do tell me how you deal with believers like those Creationist geologists coming up with the exact opposite conclusion that you base your life on?
I mean, I somehow doubt you've gone out and dug down to the "fludde" layer with a shovel. I doubt you've got your hands dirty at all and simply repeat the mantras AIG hand out.
Now, the post I quote of yours says
|untruths and wild guessing get passed over as reality|
Earlier in this thread you say that you've proof that dino and man lived together. When I disputed that you said:
|old man -- that's not an explanation -- that's a belief -- the reality is these bones were found together. The observable evidence is on my side.|
Yet the website itself, on the very next page says
|The last of the dinosaurs died out 60 million years before the first modern human ever walked the earth|
Why don't the people who made the earth shattering discovery that dino and man lived side by side even note it on their own website?
Seems like there is only one dishonest person here. And it's you, supersport.
More likely the type of people you generally deal with supersport don't click on the links you give them.
Y'see you've got to at least dress up your religion in some actual science talk to at least have a chance at passing muster.
|The most impressive and irrefutable evidence that dinosaurs co-habited the earth with man is found in the book of Job. Evolutionists have never adequately explained the mystifying remarks made by Job, who lived this side of Noah's Flood, where he speaks of "behemoth" and "leviathan" -- two huge creatures, one dwelling in the seas, and one upon the land. YEHOVAH God says to Job, "Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee" -- evidently created at the same time man was (Job 40:15)|
|For example, the first mention of the animal creation refers to such animals. 'God created great whales' (Gen.1:21). The word translated whales in the King James is often translated sea monsters in other versions. In most other passages, however, the word is translated dragons or sometimes serpents. It apparently was meant to identify the animals called a dragon in other nations.|
I mean, if crazy is your thing, go all the way. Don't hold back now.
BTW, what is it you do for a living Supersport, as you left "for work" earlier. What standards of proof do you hold them too?
"Sorry I'm late"
"LATE?LATE? I challenge you to show me ONE instance of lateness ever documented in the history of this company that has created a new, beneficial, selectable lateness addition to an existing clock orientated part"
"Err. Cup of tea?"
I also mentioned that He'd have to give me a thorough explanation as to *why* I must "eat human babies".
if there are even critical flaws in Gauger’s work, the evo mat narrative cannot stand
