jockfever saidFireDoor211: How does this guy have a public office? He's either a moron, or is just using his "faith" to get retarded people's votes. Give me a break.
jockfever: The Congressman and physician states correctly that “There are a lot of scientific data that I’ve found out as a scientist that actually show that this is really a young earth.”
Scientific observation of phenomena such as the receding Moon, Earth's magnetic field, Niagara Falls, oil pressure, the Dead Sea, ocean mineral content, helium in the atmosphere, and Carbon 14 in the atmosphere (the list is much longer) contradict the assumption that the Earth-Moon system is 4.5 billion years old, as atheists and evolutionists like to claim. The radiometric dating, upon which the 4.5 billion theory is based, has been shown to be unreliable, some say more myth than science.
Bible bashing buffoons are often willfully ignorant of the scientific case for a young earth, and are proud of that ignorance.
Tossing around terms like "moron" and "retarded" often shows that the Left IS what it accuses its opponents of being.
So things like the Grand Canyon, the formation of which required millions of years of water erosion, were merely created by God in an advanced state of erosion to trick humans into thinking the world is much older? Why? Why does God need to do that?
Religion and science are rarely compatible and science deals with facts, where religion relies on belief. Facts are more persuasive than mere faith. This is why the church is now getting into the pseudo-science business, as seen in the post above.
Please tell us what you know. How does oil pressure, or the Earth's magnetic field tell us the Earth is only a few thousand years old? Explain to us what you know about the flaws of carbon dating.
To anyone who respects real science, the church's attempt to prove a young Earth with flimsy and phony psuedo-science is just laughable. It's obvious, desperate bullshit. It's the same kind of bullshit that I heard, and believed, when I was brainwashed by the church. It's the same bullshit today.
People who want to believe there's a "God" that created everything, and want to desperately cling to their church's dogma about how old the Earth is just so they can assure themselves that the Bible is proven right, will never listen to legitimate science. But that doesn't mean the rest of us should entertain the nonsense put out by the church and it's delusional followers.
