Quote# 2479

Did you ever hear of Einstein? Have you ever heard of the Hubble space telescope? The earth can be ancient AND 10,000 years old at the same time. The Hubble telescope has photos of a very young universe. They just took those photos.

What does Einstien have to do with any of that?

I'm guessing he thinks that it would be possible for earth to be only 10,000 years old and the universe to be much older. Too bad the earth isn't moving close to the speed of light.
But I'm only guessing. These guys can come up with some REALLY wacky ideas.

Just enough rope to hang himself...

And the really sad part is that if he had just a foot or so more, his head would pop off when he jumped.

I'm not a violent person, but damn can I see myself burying my foot in this guy's ass.

You know, I would REEEEALLY like to see those pictures.

Freboy: The photos do exist, and they are taken recently... The problem being that the objects in the picture are so far, light takes 13 billion years to travel from there to the Earth... So what we're seeing is still a snapshot of the universe 13 billion years ago.

Either way John loses.

Actually, one of the problems with the Big Bang model is the presence of old stars near the hypothesized origin time of the universe.

Of course this indicates that the universe is even older than we currently believe, perhaps even eternal, and again nothing about any of this helps any bronze-age religion make its case.

Oh, goodie. He wasn't making stuff up, he was just being stupid like the rest of them.

It's even more interesting when you go to the thread. JohnR7's favourite scientific reference is Dr Gerald Schroeder,,,,,,, who just happens to be Jewish. I guess fundies will pick up any gun to shoot themselves in the foot.

Do you know why the they are photos of a young universe?

Well! Scrap all deep space investigation! This knob can tell you by just looking at it

I'm rejecting this, for my own sanity. No one can be this dumb.

Well, at least he tried to understand the theory of relavity

. . . I think.
