Quote# 34301

[Winner of the "Easier is always better"-award]

In my new studies into the question of origins, I came across so many things that were confusing to the evolutionary scientists, such as “older” aged rock layers being on top of the “younger” layers. They couldn’t explain it easily, but creationist research could.

"older rocks over younger rocks"

It's called faulting, love (or folding, or intrusions... etc), and it is explained quite easily. In fact, a peek into a child's geology book could explain this.

Have fun failing geology!

"They couldn’t explain it easily, but creationist research could."

By "explaining" he means making up something unfalsefiable or by saying "Godditt".

Creationist Research? FAIL

it's easier than that even, have you forgotten "It was in God's plan"?

everything is in his plan. Adam and Eve eating the apple. countless disobedience from his people throughout the bible. mass murdering dickheads.

Hell, shouldn't my complete and utter lack of faith in "Him" be in his plan too?

Rock layers become plastic under pressure, and can be deformed and bent by force--in some cases, until they're folded over younger strata.

"creationist research" = oxymoron of the highest calibre.

@Chinook: I think the idea of looking in any kind of geology book would be a foreign concept for Cindy.

BTW: Dear Cindy, what does geology have to do with evolution?

Actually prager, it think looking in any non-fiction book would be a foreign concept to cindy. Thus explaining the fact that they think creationists research stuff.

Creationism has no fucking idea what it means because they rely in the Bible(which doesn't mention them)and what other scientists say to make strawmen.

Everything -- if you're a Young Earth creationist. If the Earth is old, that proves that Jesus didn't die for your sins and you're not going to get 72 virgins in heaven. Or something.

They couldn’t explain it easily, but creationist research could.

Goodness, could it really? Oh that would be super. I wonder what what conclusions they will draw? Heeeeey, waitaminute! You're going to put some kind of religious spin on the answer, aren't you? I should have known!

Poor baby, couldn't understand the big words in science class

Creationist research is a bunch of bullshit artists sitting around saying, well how are we going to use the bible to explain this?

Drop out, go work at McDonalds, I think it's the best you'll get. Unless you're cute, in that case snag yourself a man and 'submit to him utterly'.

Reading the bible is not research.

Given: Plate Tectonics.

Now if yo want a fun experiment to try at home, take a deck of cards and divide it in two piles. These represent two different geologic plates, each with their own strata of rocks (the cards). Now, push them together. Don't riffle shuffle them or anything fancy, just push them together.

If even one card from higher in the stack ends up below a card that was below it, or upside down, then we win.

"“older” aged rock layers being on top of the “younger” layers. They couldn’t explain it easily,"

Overthrust. One word. Easy.

"but creationist research could. "

GODDIDDIT!! GODDIDDDIT!! GODDIDDIT!!!
Yes, it's easy, but it's not correct.

There's no such thing as "creationist research", they only have their Bible and "Goddidit" :P

If it worked like this in real life...

Person 1: Old man Johnny's been murdered!
Person 2: I blame Kevin!
Person 1: What? But we don't even know what happened yet!
Person 2: Well, do you have a better idea?
Person 1: Well, I have no idea since we haven't even started investigating!
Person 2: Then i win. Let's hang him!

Confused...isn't the whole point of creationism that there is not, and cannot be, research?

Goddidit is a simple explanation for absolutely everything. Sadly, it is the wrong explanation for absolutely everything as well.

What the fuck is "creationist research" anyway? Opening the Bible to page one? Even that doesn't work, because not long afterwards an alternative and contradictory "explanation" for creation arises. Read Genesis a bit more closely.

May I suggest you read up on a subject called "Plate Tectonics" and continental mass drift.
