I'm terrified of anyone who doesn't want to read any book other than bible or a book written by a creationist.. like holy Shit. We are missing the point here. How long did man walk alongside dinosaurs before he forgot to paint them in caves adjacent to things that did exist at the time. I've never seen a credible scientist even mention creationism. I'd hate to see what the rest of these people's lives are like. I'm thinking trailer park. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11022368

^You mean like these? Or the fact that the Chinese have 11 "existing" animals in their Zodiac, and then a dragon?
Have you ever heard of Isaac Newton?
Nah, no scientist of any credibility believes in Creationism. The slight majority of modern-day scientists accept long ages, and molecule-to-man evolution, sure...but does that make it so? The world's best minds once believed the Earth was flat and that the planet's revolved around the Earth...were they stupid? Or was it just the accepted science of the day, so that is all they were taught, and everything in their studies was viewed through that world-view? The evidence for Creation is all around you. It is in the rocks, the trees, the animals, under microscopes, and clearly displayed in the heavens above. The evidence for Creation is not different evidence, it is the interpretation that is different, because we see through a different worldview.
"For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:"
Of course I've heard of these men, some great scientisds in their own right. But it's unfortunate that they couldn't live to see a standardized way of dating take shape. It's also quite unfortunate that you reject RCD as the right way. You lost me when you started quoting that ridiculous book though. I simply don't have the energy to go on and on about how wrong you are. Science has come a long way, we can actually leave earth to see that it is round, and we can date things to see how old they are. That's a fact. And it's one you'll have to accept. I'm curious if creationists spend all of their time looking for the most illogical arguments to hold up their theories that simply won't be around in 50 years.
It's too much work trying to prove something that's already been falsified over and over. Just give it up. There's no truth in that book. Zero. Nada. Zilth. You'd have better luck proving another, more ancient holy book to be true.
How many labs have you worked in utilizing RCD? Uranium-lead? Potassium-Argon? Everyone spouts off Carbon-14 and has zero experience or even knowledge of how it works. All radiometric dating methods are based on great assumptions, and the only way they even "seem" accurate is because the dates that don't line up with the "estimate" are thrown out. The dates are "estimated" by the geologic column, which does not exist in reality, only in tax-payer funded textbooks. It is complete and total circular reasoning; a huge logical fallacy. The dates of fossils are estimated by what "layer" of rock they are found in. The "layer" of rocks are estimated to be a certain age, depending upon which fossils are found in them. Carbon-14 is NOT used to date ANYTHING that is estimated to be more than thousands of years (not millions and certainly not billions), because the half-life of Carbon is so short (relatively speaking).
The very fact that you even went there just proves you have no idea what you are talking about and blindly follow your god (modern science). You should take a good hard look deep down inside you, and realize you are blindly accepting the things you are being fed because you secretly DO NOT want the Bible to be true. You don't want a God to be in control, you want it, and you don't want to have to answer for your lust.
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Romans 1.18-23
Your god is humanism, and your prophets are sinful, despicable men, that love their own minds and desires, more than the mercy of the God that created them.
