I'll try to remember that the next time my uncle's dog tries to hump my leg.

The Bible Scriptures teach that it is the Word of God, why should man change Gods Word to fit in with Modern ideas?
At least the Bible has been consistent with what it teaches and doesn't change it's mind every few years or so!

Not true about cranial capacity being "the convention" for naming a new species. There are many criteria.
For example, adult humans have a cranial capacity between 1200cc and 1850cc. So if John Doe has a cranial capacity of 1300cc and Fred Nurks has a cranial capacity of 1600cc, it doesn't mean they are different species.
And yes I think that the earth is millions of years old. What egotistical fools we are for thinking that we could possibly be the ONLY stage of creation God has ever made! HELLO! We believe that God is eternal. That means always there... always going to BE there. Does anyone HONESTLY think that He waited MILLIONS of years in NOTHINGNESS just to create us!? Dinos were just a different stage of creation than us. I believe that He's created "aliens" on other planets. We may not even be the only sentient species out there... who knows? The bible states that a day is as a ten thousand years and ten thousand years are as a day to God. He lives outside time.

you need to quit banging that drum since there are literally millions of christians who don't agree with the theories of the roman catholic hierarchy of 500 or more years ago. ya know, it's like beating a dead horse.

The Fossil record... (paraphrased)
Evolution states that life began as one celled organisms and worked their way up from there.
FOSSIL record (from the Cambrian Period) Shows that A: there was no life on earth before this time, B: Life began not as one-celled organisms but as simple celled animals and sea creatures (some just as complicated as creatures found in our oceans today)
(My words: I also can't help but mentioning that in the Bible, birds and sea creatures were first created.)
The fossil record DOES NOT show a layer before this time with more simply formed creatures.
Sudden appearance of flowering plants (paraphrased)
Like the animal record, the plant record is equally as troubling to evolutionist. There is no sign of a "gradual evolution" of plant organs. The pistol, stamen, roots and other parts of flowering plants appear in the fossil record... fully formed.
No intermediate forms (paraphrased)
There are no intermediate links between different animals. There are not just missing links, the whole chain is missing! If evolution were true, the fossil record should be full of "links". There should be just as many dinos-birds as there are birds and dinos.
Unbridged gaps between body structures (paraphrased)
Origin of Vertebrates (paraphrased)
I'll make it simple. There's no evidence of a shift between invertebrates to vertebrates in evolution... nor is there evidence of a shift from exoskeleton to indoskeleton. They just. aren't. there.
Necessity of perfection in animal organs. (paraphrased and this is a huge one)
For spiders, if evolution were true, they wouldn't exist. What use would a half-formed spinneret be to a spider? Could a spider exist today if such an important organ of their bodies took millions of years to evolve.
There are millions more of these examples of how a half-formed organ simply WOULD NOT WORK!!!
Necessity of perfection in both plants and animals for cross-pollination (paraphrased... again)
(There are about fifteen other such examples and sections in the book that I will not touch on as I think I've proved my point in this and it's getting redundant
Or can anyone prove me wrong?
