O.E. Lucifer "Satan," also "morning star," from L. Lucifer "morning star," lit. "light-bringing". Belief that it was the proper name of Satan began with its use in the Bible to translate Gk. Phosphoros, which translates Heb. Helel ben Shahar in Isaiah xiv.12 -- "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!" [KJV] The verse was interpreted by Christians as a reference to "Satan," because of the mention of a fall from Heaven, even though it is literally a reference to the King of Babylon (cf. Isaiah xiv.4). Lucifer match "friction match" is from 1831.

Assuming that Creationism is right and evolution is wrong, how do you (creationists) explain that we have found fossils of animals that have been living only in a certain time period and not before that time. What I'm trying to say is, where did that animal come from if it hadn't always existed?
Clearly it didn't pop up out of thin air, so my guess is it must have evolved from another animal.
Any thoughts on this?

To point out just one part of that link, Noah's flood never happened as described. I could go on about how increased pressure in the atmosphere by the canopy of water resting on top of it would have crushed Noah and all the animals. I could mention that water traveling at orbital velocity would heat up to INCREADABLE temperatures and cause it essentially boil to death every living creature on Earth and the ark. That is, if the release of atmospheric pressure didn't cause Noah and all the animals to experience explosive decompression first. *pop*
