Quote# 3357

to the evolutionist: name one indisputable fact that demands that the universe must be billions of years old. You will find that your view on the age of the world and the universe is not a product of evidense, but simply the result of what you have been taught.

So do you think that Pangea is drifting together instead of apart? Because it didn't drift apart in 6000 years.

Background microwave radiation from the Big Bang is just one of many verifiable physical pieces of evidence of the age of the universe; the mere ability to see stars and galaxies that are demonstrably billions of light-years distant is another, because it would take those billions of years for the light to reach us.

If you ask me, food4thought here is the one being \"evidense.\"

I'll second all of the previous answers, and throw in radiological dating for the win.

News flash for dummies: "science" isn't one field, and "scientists" aren't interchangeable. You've gotta go where the experts in each field are.

Evolution is in the biology department. I think you want a cosmologist and a geologist.

Um, Mr/Ms misnamed? We have several ways to prove that, which several posters here have already listed.

You will find that your view on the age of the world and the universe is not a product of evidense, but simply the result of what you have been taught.


That's our line.

And for goodness sake: the theory of evolution isn't a description on the origin of life, it's an explanation of how it develops.

Here's some evidence with very tiny error bars:

but simply the result of what you have been taught.


Is being taught a bad thing?
