Darn it... another typo
>>>>And you didn't see the patterns in the chaos as the hand of God?<<
I do it that way. <<
Should have read "I do see it that way."
I believe in the day age theory in that the days of genesis are long periods of time and god created all animals but spanned it out over millions of years.
Look at the teachings of Hugh Ross to get an idea of what I believe.
I can't speak for gondramB, but the emergence of order out of chaos is exactly where I see the hand of God. I am more impressed by a God who can start with a few simple rules and have complexity emerge -- such as evolution is -- then one who plunks it down ready-made. It's a much more elegent creation -- one much more capable, IMO, of creating free-willed creatures.
It's BS like this that makes me hope that Jesus really is coming soon just so he can tell these idiots to knock it off.
Sorry, you have to define a light-year as a distance in meters and then ignore the time-element for this to have any meaning whatsoever.
In other words, a 'light-year' is defined as a certain number of meters. That number of meters obviously will not change regardless of the speed of light. It is the time required to transverse this number of meters that is critical. What proponents of this argument do is define light-years in terms of distance and then use this defined distance measure as though it holds some time element.
Nice little trick, but such is the lack of critical thinking among adherents of this argument.
You can believe what you want, but to refer to that museum's nonsense as science is an outright lie.
Your understanding of radiocarbon dating is sadly lacking. Here are some links which may help -- if you bother to read them:
ReligiousTolerance.org Carbon-14 Dating (C-14): Beliefs of New-Earth Creationists
This site, BiblicalChronologist.org has a series of good articles on radiocarbon dating.
Are tree-ring chronologies reliable? (The Biblical Chronologist, Vol. 5, No. 1)Tree Ring and C14 Dating
How does the radiocarbon dating method work? (The Biblical Chronologist, Vol. 5, No. 1)

You believe Jesus was unhinged? < /Literalist>
Try reading the post before replying.
Try thinking before posting someone else's nonsense.
You know you're busted.
That's why your response is content-free.
The good student of history knows that Torqemada drove a great many moslems out of Spain, moslems who were false converts, posing a "Christians" after having ruled over Spain for 400 years. But of course, in these times we live in the "historians" have lost all personal dignity and place their pride and prejudices ahead of the facts, so it's expected that most people today are clueless about the facts of the Span. Inquisition.
I won't go into detail, that'd probably be a waste of my time. Suffice to say, the Spanish Inquisition was called chiefly to purge the remnants of islamic scum from Spain, (false converts), and the Jews, (false converts), who fought right alongside them against Spaniards in Northern Africa. The truth about the Spanish Inquisition is that only a few thousand people actually died over a 400 year period, and most of them weren't "heretics", they were infiltrators.
Isn't he in jail for cheating Uncle Sam?
You are the one lacking critical thinking. Like js1138 said, re-read the article and apply that criteria to yourself. In the trigonometric calculations, units cancel out and you are left with ratios. And if there was a variation in the speed of light, it would have affected both observations in the same manner, hance cancelling out the effect upon trigonometric calculation. The observation is independent of light's speed.
Basically, this article proves you are full of BS.
And ice cores, coral samples, annual lake deposits, cave deposits and sediment cores. Carbon dating has been matched against all of those, and the calibration modified according to the data.
Decades ago, scientists found that C-14 is a useful tool. Creationists have the pre-conceived notion that the tool must be wrong because it conflicts with their previously-held beliefs. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, could make the tool correct in their eyes because it simply MUST be wrong. No amount of data can change that belief. In the mean time, scientists were actually doing something useful on the subject, working on improving the precision of the tool and have wildly succeeded in that.
You do realize that there's carbon-14 in petroleum, right -- these deep-earth, "ancient" reserves which should have *zero*?
Extremely little, and any you get is likely sample contamination. Nobody claims carbon dating is useful that far out, and a person would have to be completely ignorant of carbon dating (or purposely disingenuous) to even propose that he'd get a meaningful result from a sample that old. 45,000 years is pushing it, 24,000 years is pretty reliable. Both are still way beyond the Christian creation.
Bingo! I think we have a winner here!
I'm glad to hear that you have all the answers.
