How about this, then. The split [between the times when physics did and did not apply to Eden] was not instant, but perhaps never really was completed till during the flood!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This makes it entirely possible, as the merged laws were different. Presto- all arguements hitherto used against a canopy no longer valid!!! I like that. With science, then being neutered, this leaves only objections of a biblical nature to be a possible theory killer here.(?) But that's not going to happen, I am almost positive! So, evos, check, and MATE!!

Just because you had an hallucination and used a lot of exclamation points does not make your idea true. Both your grasp of physics and your grasp of English need a great deal of work.

If the absurd degree of ad-hockery and mental gymnastics you have to go to in order to make this theory even sane, much less plausible, isn't a huge fucking red flag as to its validity, I don't know what would be. First there's the insane assertion that the laws of physics didn't apply at some point (right, everything just acted like it would if they did apply except for some \"canopy\" that conveniently no longer exists), and it gets even wackier from there.

The only thing neutered here is this guy's frontal lobes. This is one of the most dazzling displays of insanity I've ever seen; it is sheer self-parody.

He's not really somebody's dad, is he?

Uh oh looks like he's got us now. How can I argue with logic like this?

Check and mate? Do YOU even understand what the hell you just said?

This one is so mind numbingly stupid it hurts to read it.

If that's the best Creationists can come up with, we 'evos' have NOTHING to worry about.

Wait... physics did not apply? Did the Warner Brothers teach your science class?

OK, so where is the Evidence. FAILURE OF MAMMOTH PROPORTIONS.

dad, science is female!

So your answer to facts is... "Well,... my beliefs are magically correct. So there!"

I like that

Me too. I haven't laughed this hard all day. And then a random question mark, in PARENTHASIS, really just topped it off.

Want to talk about moving the goal posts?...hell it is worse than that, he threw them into a black hole.

I like how this guy thinks he's got it all figured out. STFU man, you give pseudo-science a bad name.

Order of creation
Here is the order in the first (Genesis 1), the Priestly tradition:

Day 1: Sky, Earth, light
Day 2: Water, both in ocean basins and above the sky(!)
Day 3: Plants
Day 4: Sun, Moon, stars (as calendrical and navigational aids)
Day 5: Sea monsters (whales), fish, birds, land animals, creepy-crawlies (reptiles, insects, etc.)
Day 6: Humans (apparently both sexes at the same time)
Day 7: Nothing (the Gods took the first day off anyone ever did)

Note that there are "days," "evenings," and "mornings" before the Sun was created. Here, the Deity is referred to as "Elohim," which is a plural, thus the literal translation, "the Gods." In this tale, the Gods seem satisfied with what they have done, saying after each step that "it was good."

The second one (Genesis 2), the Yahwist tradition, goes:

Earth and heavens (misty)
Adam, the first man (on a desolate Earth)
Eve, the first woman (from Adam's rib)


How orderly were things created?
#1: Step-by-step. The only discrepancy is that there is no Sun or Moon or stars on the first three "days."
#2: God fixes things up as he goes. The first man is lonely, and is not satisfied with animals. God finally creates a woman for him. (funny thing that an omniscient god would forget things)


How satisfied with creation was he?
#1: God says "it was good" after each of his labors, and rests on the seventh day, evidently very satisfied.
#2: God has to fix up his creation as he goes, and he would certainly not be very satisfied with the disobedience of that primordial couple. (funny thing that an omniscient god would forget things)

Physics proves the Biblical 'Flood' was impossible. It was impossible for Noah & co. to build an ark bigger than the Jahre Viking when they (supposedly) did. Biology (specifically genetics) proves Adam & Eve as the origin of humanity impossible (inbreeding, natch). There's no exact, precise info in Genesis of HOW God created this universe, this planet & all the life on it, with no diagrams, formulae etc. Darwin's "On The Theory Of Species" gives explanations for his theories (with subsequent discoveries since, especially archaeological & genetic).

So, creationists:
