You know what I think? I think we've been sold a bill of goods about the dinosaurs. I don't believe they died off millions and millions of years ago. In fact, I'm not at all convinced they've died off completely.
Sad isn’t it? Yet there are so many on FR who’ll believe anything that requires them not to think or question.
Return of the Archons.
“I am 100 percent certain man and dinosaurs walked the earth at the same time’
Not one evolutionist called in.
Guess the scientifically literate don’t listen to this show.
Whats so funny about THAT?
Didn’t you see Jurassic Park???
Heck, I’ve got a flock of pterodactyls up in my woods right now.
Wait, maybe they’re wild turkeys.
Oh Brother!Is This Guy Really Series? Alert
>>”Just give me one reason why you accept the theory,” I said. “Just give me the strongest argument. You don’t have to give me mountains of evidence. Just tell me why I should accept it.”
Not one evolutionist called in.
Meanwhile, the phone banks lit up with dozens of evolution skeptics. <<
Logic would suggest that most of the listeners are evolution skeptics.
A bit like asking the posters at DU why G W Bush is a good President.
Joe has watched one too many episodes of the Flintstones.
“At least some of these observations and records indicate dinosaurs were walking the earth fairly recently if not still walking it today. “
Well some of the dinosaurs evolved into birds, so he’s unintentionally correct.
Should I be correct, the 'large number of scientists' that claim to be evolutionists becomes a more equal percentage of all scientists ... validating the polarization of thought process that is a 50/50 split.
There is no up unless there is a down .. no left without a right, no in unless there is an out to compare and contrast.
Evolutionists don't want a GOD ... creationists do.
It's really that simple.
They're both religions.
I especially liked the part where he wanted to know why he should believe mountains of evidence.
Unfortunately, at this point in time, the President may now have more fans at DU than FR.
“There is no up unless there is a down “
There are two sides to every piece of flypaper, too. But the fly had better be very careful on which side he lands.
Do these nut cases even know what “ Theory’ means?
Hint:....best evidence. Repeat, best evidence.
It is wrong about the global flood.
Early geologists (creationists trying to prove the global flood) gave up about 1830. The evidence since then has accumulated -- there was no global flood about 4350 years ago.
Huh, my uncle who is a geologist (PhD) says there WAS a global flood.
Perhaps Joe should go on a hunting trip to Africa and not write another article until he bags a pterodactyl.
Definitions (from my FR home page):
Theory: a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world; an organized system of accepted knowledge that applies in a variety of circumstances to explain a specific set of phenomena; "theories can incorporate facts and laws and tested hypotheses." Addendum: "Theories do not grow up to be laws. Theories explain laws." (Courtesy of VadeRetro.)
Theory: A scientifically testable general principle or body of principles offered to explain observed phenomena. In scientific usage, a theory is distinct from a hypothesis (or conjecture) that is proposed to explain previously observed phenomena. For a hypothesis to rise to the level of theory, it must predict the existence of new phenomena that are subsequently observed. A theory can be overturned if new phenomena are observed that directly contradict the theory. [Source]
When a scientific theory has a long history of being supported by verifiable evidence, it is appropriate to speak about "acceptance" of (not "belief" in) the theory; or we can say that we have "confidence" (not "faith") in the theory. It is the dependence on verifiable data and the capability of testing that distinguish scientific theories from matters of faith.
(Apologies to Shakespeare.)
If there was a global flood, can you tell me where all the water went?
If you form a flypaper into a Mobius Strip, do you still have a sticky side and a non-sticky side?
Leftists believe they evolved from slime. I cannot disagree...
I am an archaeologist (Ph.D.) and the vast majority of my colleagues and I say there was no global flood about 4350 years ago. (And, we have scientific evidence.)
(I am assuming your post was a jest on those who do cite a famous uncle as proof of some silly idea. Good one!)
I don’t think there’s enough water on the planet to produce a global flood, but since your uncle is a geology PhD, surely you can find a cite from a geological source that there was a global flood four thousand years ago. Otherwise, I say... phooey.
I’ll have to see what Escher did with that.
Nope. He was an atheist until he started studying for his PhD and (gasp here) became a born again Christian.
Sorry he really does believe in creation and the flood. He uses geological research to preach.
You might enjoy this.
Things the Bible got Wrong
1. The ark that Noah was to built could not have physically held all the species of Animals on the Earth nor has there been time in the last 4,000 years for the number of species to evolve that could have fit on the ark as described in the Bible.
2. All Human Languages we have today formed when men built a tower to Heaven.
3. Humans in the past lived hundreds and some almost a thousand years. Human lifespans have never been as long as they are now and no remains have ever been found of a human who lived much longer than 120 years. Forensic science is at a very high state of being and can tell age due to several factors including dental wear and by studying cranial fissures.
Just off the top of my head three faults in Biblical teaching. The old testament especially Genesis is merely a collection of stories that instruct people in how to live morally. It was never meant to be taken literally.
It was a simple question. The fact is that the amount of water on the earth is the same today as it was 4000 years ago or 4,000,000 years ago. If the ice caps were to melt and all the ground water were to be brought to the surface the earth would still not be flooded completely.
Sorry Number one should read
“1. The ark that Noah was to built could not have physically held all the species of Animals on the Earth nor has there been time in the last 4,000 years for the number of species to evolve that currently inhabit the Earth from those species that could have been held in the Ark as described in the Bible.”
Sorry mind was racing ahead of my typing skill on that one :)
For that matter, water is continually arriving on earth in the from of cometary particles, so it is most likely the case that there has never been more water than there is today, which is still not enough to cover the globe.
Yes, it is sad that so many believe in the anti-God fable of evolution.
Ok. Seems like you have all the answers. Good for you.
Can you see no scientific evidence that supports evolution?
What is really sad is that you believe that evolution is anti-God.
I wouldnt begrudge Farah the bittersweet vindication of one bagging him.
We were all created. Many devolve.
Was already on it, lol! Made my day!
That sure explains why the first section of the last chapter of Darwin's Origins of the Species is titled Recapitulation of the Difficulties on the Theory of Natural Selection.
Time to let go of this canard. That dog won't hunt.
You really see none? I mean, you don't think that various forms of geology, carbon dating, etc. at least hint at the possibility that the world is older than the new earth creationists preach?
I believe the evidence, and because I’m a Christian, I believe Scripture, which in many many many ways contradicts the theory of evolution. Someone who believes in Jesus can’t believe in evolution — what He believed and spoke directly contradicts the theory.
Coming out of the woodwork ping.
