Even if you were to grant that all the conditions of our planet and solar system just happened to be what was necessary for life (which is a mathematical impossibility), this still does not explain the number one evidence I supplied, which is of course, humans. To believe that the human body evolved from anything, let alone from some sort of microscopic protazoa, is utterly absurd.

Making a point has never been this easy.

Oh, and, What Truck?... you mentioned that Clinton's on his way to getting moderated. You're right. He is. But... you two are the two ends of a scale. And the guy who's about to do the moderating prefers sticking to the middle.

I understand

Point taken. I suppose I did set myself up for that one.

I could also point out that most atheist do exactly the same thing, in opposite measure - but that wouldn't get us anywhere.

Seen? What does a glacier look like from underneath? LOL
(A bit like looking up from the bottom of a vodka on the rocks? LOTS of rocks!)

Pleasure to meet you!

No, I don't believe we have.

This thread was actually my first post - and what a post it was...



Feel free to PM me - I think I've outstayed my welcome with the 7000 year old trees.

I'm one of those young earth people...

And I don't argue with this... I beleive the earth is around 6,000 years old. it's possible.

*Wanders into thread*
Wow. This perhaps one of the most compelling and well written arguements on this topic that I've seen in years.
*Hopes that What Truck? returns*

Well 6,000 years... or 7 or 8,000 (which is what Young Earth people believe)... is very young compared to 25,000,000 or whatever...

I don't necessarily stand with the young earth side of things...though I believe in intelligent design this tree stump proves absolutely nothing. I mean do you think God created all the trees from seeds? I think if he is able to create the universe he is able to create trees that have some rings in it...he has the ability to put a tree somewhere that appears to be thousands of years old. He didn't create earth and just say "ok, your on your own...grow and do whatever you do"
My only point is...this proves nothing.

I believe in intelligent design, and one point that I think I could add is that the 6 days of creation didn't neccessarily have to mean 6 actual days(It could have been ages, for example)...so while I for one would side with the younger earth theorists, I also think one can be consistant with the Bible and theorize that the earth is a little older.
