Since your theory is not plausible,

1st you attack there character, then 2nd you claim they are ignorant because they believe in God as the creator of the universe in less than billions of years.

You do this because you need naturalistic origins so that there is no God to answer to for your behavior in life.

False.

1st you attack there [sic] character,

I disparage their anti-science behavior.

then 2nd you claim they are ignorant because they believe in God as the creator of the universe in less than billions of years.

I disparage their sullen unwillingness to see the evidence that is right in front of their eyes, and their pernicious distortion of science to their own personal ends.

You do this because you need naturalistic origins so that there is no God to answer to for your behavior in life.

False.

Please show one lizard giving birth to a chicken.

Your pretty pictures arranged in an order to give the appearance of direction is not a proof.
Life from non life please, oh wait that does not happen.

Punchuated equilibrium right, (hopeful monsters).

Long ages and naturalistic ways that do not adhere to the physical laws of nature is not science. It is a belief is a unobservable untestable fairy tale propagated by men centuries ago that has yet to stand up to the test of time. There are props holding up the mirrors in every corner and the fires of truth are clouding the eyes of the willfully ignorant.

There is nothing in science that has ever disproved the Bible in any way.

But your belief requires a constant changing the way it could have happened.

Oh by the way has the dirt in your yard come to life yet.

That would disprove the theory of evolution. Evolution does not claim that kind of mutation; only creationists do.

Proof? No, it is interpretation and extrapolation of the evidence. That is what science does. But why are you bringing this up now? I don't remember posting that picture in several months.


Life from non life please, oh wait that does not happen.

That is not evolution. Unless you use the standard creationist definition of evolution as "any science that creationists disagree with."


Punchuated equilibrium right, (hopeful monsters).

Why should all of evolution proceed at the exact same rate? That would be silly for someone to believe. Darwin pointed out this possibility in 1859.


Long ages and naturalistic ways that do not adhere to the physical laws of nature is not science.

The "laws of nature" are determined by scientists, not creationists. Scientists have no problem with the theory of evolution as science.


It is a belief is a unobservable untestable fairy tale propagated by men centuries ago that has yet to stand up to the test of time. There are props holding up the mirrors in every corner and the fires of truth are clouding the eyes of the willfully ignorant.

Huh?


There is nothing in science that has ever disproved the Bible in any way.

The idea of a global flood about 4350 years ago has been falsified.


But your belief requires a constant changing the way it could have happened.

Science modifies its theories as needed. The basics of the theory of evolution have changed little in 150 years. The details are much richer now, and with each major discovery (such as DNA), the evidence supporting the theory of evolution has only grown stronger.


Oh by the way has the dirt in your yard come to life yet.

Why should it? The theory of evolution says nothing about dirt coming to life.

By the way, this is the fourth ping you've sent my way today, mostly from old threads. Is there some special occasion? You get a day off to play on the internet?

None with The Word.

It takes ~8 1/2 minutes for light to reach us from the sun, and another 3-4 seconds to reflect back from the moon. By dt/dc, how far is the Sun?

And there must be some separation otherwise, we're in it.

"Of course I believe what He said. Don’t misunderstand, I am a Creationist, I just don’t know exactly how long “The Beginning” was and whether or not there may have been a gap between Genesis 1 and 2."

I think if you'll reconsider your position, you'll see that you only believe what Christ said in the context of what man says is permissable and that is a dangerous place to be.

It was not until man said the earth and the universe were billions of years old, that 'believers' started compromising with the position you hold. If you will actually study the supposed 'evidence' for long ages, you will find that it ultimately rests on unobservable *assumptions* that are not demonstrated. As such, you should not take the assumptions of man over the clear teaching of the Word of God.
