Quote# 3047

And fosil dating is a worthless piece of junk that someone came up with. It uses circular reasoning for one. And two it doesn't take millions or even billions of years for them to form. I remember somewhere (I do remember it was very credible though) that someone's grandpa had died and they burried them. 15 years later the grandma died, but when the went to dig the grave, the ground was soaked with water from an underground river/spring. So, they dug the grandma's grave soemwhere else, but when they went back to get teh grandpa he had fosilized!

I heard (and it's more credible ) that Sturgeons "It" is based on a well documented case in Florida

A reporter called Kolchak broke the story

But you see no circular reasoning in the following? "God is real because the Bible says so. I know the Bible is true because it is the word of God."

Do you have any credible evidence for the "Fossilized Geezer"? Sounds shaky to me...

I think you're confusing fossilized with decomposed.

Since when is a grandpa a "them"? Aren't fossils formed in the absence of air and humidity?

Fossils have an arbitrary minimum age of 10 000 years. And I do remember where I read that; Wikipedia.
Not the most credible source on Earth, sure, but still; I actually know where I got it.

Maybe Giggle isn't lying. What I mean to say is, although what Giggle is saying is far from true, Giggle might well be telling what she believes to be true. For one thing, this is a story he or she heard and is simply repeating. And also note that the grandfather had been buried next to an underground river/spring. It sounds like it's possible that this person is confusing the calcium-carbonate concretions with fossilization.

Potholer54debunks channel has a video on a lot of supposed fossils:

Giggle clearly does not understand fossilization at all, let alone how fossils are actually dated. Lots of different data is gathered and compared in order to date a fossil. There are different ways to date fossils and, while none of them might be perfect, when they all seem to converge on around the same date, I think that tells you something.

I love you, just because of your username.

At ease, sargeant.

OK, for the sake of the argument let’s say that story is true.

Wouldn’t that mean that we need radiometric dating then? So we could determine how old a fossil really is?

Is this supposed to be an argument for homeschooling? Because if it is, the debate is pretty much over.

If you don't remember where you you got your information, how can you remember that it was credible?
