The flat world model is really ancient. people have known that the world is not flat for thousands of years. As soon as people began to move a little
from home they realized that the world was not flat. The flat earth model was rejected long before science existed.
Evolution is a fact. Adaptation is seen today in short periods of time. But over the fossil record evolution is well established.
The great age of the Earth has been known for hundreds of years. That was when relative time was the only known method. A host of dating methods today
show that the Earth is 4.5 billion years old. Carbon dating only works for some 50,000 years at most.
Creation especially as presented in the bible is laughable. The bible can't even get the order of creation right. It has mammals before fish and with
2 versions in genesis you wonder why. Creation does not explain the fossil record.
Evolution is based on facts. Beliefs are relegated to people that fall for creation.
How has evolution been tested,with the same results over and over? If it always had the same results then we would not have the different
species etc..., You shot evolution down as scientific fact with your own statement.
Good question. The fossil record provides the history of life on Earth. It can be compared against existing species. Evolution is tested by making
predictions and finding those species that are predicted. A good example of this is the sequence of species in the evolution of whales.
The comment about "You shot evolution down as scientific fact with your own statement" makes no sense at all. You have made some odd illogical
inferences and claim it applies to me. Not so.
You might want to learn how sciences such as astronomy perform experiments to learn the different ways in which science does testing of its ideas.
