Interesting, they seem to say the same thing about yours.
There is only one God, and Jesus is His only Son. Its called faith. Clearly what a lot of you people lack around here.
If you'll notice, thats what people here have been saying, without faith in the beleif that the god of the bible created these things directly, then
there is no reason to beleive any of it.
Its like throwing a bunch of car parts in the air and then it lands to be a perfect car from the parts, it doesn't happen without guidance.
Same as creation itself.
Is that supposed to be a critique of evolution? Evolution is nothing like throwing car parts in the air and getting a car. Evolution builds on past
successess slowly over time. Also, neither evolution nor creation of the universe has ever been shown to require intelligent supernatural direction.
If you want to beleive that it has, fine by me, but don't pretend that there is evidence to support it or that its anything other than a beleif.
OCEANS of water came up from the EARTH people, wouldnt the FORCE of that cause some form of fossilization???
No, it wouldn't. Fossilization isn't caused by 'force'. Furthermore, if enough water to cover the highest mountains (ie, to flood the world)
sprang up from the ocean, then, amoung other things, there would be a mismash of organisms preserved in the fossil layer, not successions of faunas
and any sort of order. Also, there would be one global flood deposit, which simply isn't found.
NEWS FLASH people....the bible says
Whether or not one accepts what the bible says is a matter of whether or not one has faith in it. Some people have faith in other things and other
people would rely on evidence rather than faith to understand the world.
there is actually ample proof
There is not one shred, not one iota of proof.
He eats grass like an ox[...]. The description fits that of a sauropod dinosaur like Brachiosaurus.
Didn't eat grass, didn't live in marshes.
See now, his strength is in his hips, and his power is in his stomach muscles. He moves his tail like a cedar
Many have noted that this might better be taken as a description of the creatures reproductive organs, strength in the loins, powerful muscle, swaying
like a trunk. That would definitely rule out any sauropod. And where are the descriptions of packs of ravenous manirapotorial dinosaurs wiping out
entire villages or the tyrannosaurs stomping on people? Where are the relatively fresh carcasses? Why aren't the dinosaur fossils found with modern
The Astral City
The site would be funny if this were not what someone with a PhD
Kent hovind received his 'phd' from an unaccredited degree mill. He doesn't even know how long his 'thesis' is (he actually states that he's
been 'adding to it' ever since he finished it, sometimes its over 200 pp, some time around 100) and major sections of it are repeated verbatim in
it. Normally, at a real university, a thesis is kept on file in the library and people are allowed to see it, but 'Patriot University' won't let
anyone see his thesis (which, by the way, he didn't have to defend before anyone, which is how actual theses are done) and he himself has claimed ot
have lost his copy and won't let people see it. Heck half the time he says its on somethign like the effect of bible teaching in schools and other
times that its on an entirely different subject. Regardless, the actual subject isn't paleontology or any other science, it seems to be vaguely
about education. A few have seen it and their description of it is, well, revealing. He is a fraud and a charlatan, traveling from church group to
church group and defrauding them.
