Creationism does require faith, but there is also substantial proof to its authenticity. For instance, the Bible.

Sure, if stories written by Bronze Age goat-herders are proof of anything.

If something requires faith, then by definition it does not have any proo- oh. I see. "TEH BABBLE SED SO!" Never mind.

The Bible says that creationism is real. Creationism is real because the bible says so...
The logic on the bus goes round and round...

yeah hes been spewing garbage on the forums for a few weeks
8/28/2008 8:26:13 AM
In other words…there is no proof!
8/28/2008 8:49:10 AM
Logic... and it's circular.
8/28/2008 8:52:57 AM
Circular argument again. Can't you argue with anything remotely original?

The Bible is wrong on so many things it requires massive amounts of faith to believe it to be scientifically accurate.

Waiting for God
I know WOW has an off topic forum, but what on Earth does creationism have to do with a lvl 70 tankadin about to take on Karazan with her raiding guild?

round and round, round and round.

@Waiting for God: There are often threads about Creationism and Evolution. And also the issue of gay marriage comes up very often. Or Atheism vs. Religion. Sometimes even serious discussion about this topics or politics. Most of the posters there are quite liberal and not all are 13 year old boys.
Of course most of the threads there are more like 4Chan without the nudity...

The koran says the bible is a fib.

The bible does not EVER constitute proof of anything.

the anti-stupid goggles, they do not work!

By the same reasoning, there's substantial proof that Harry Potter exists, too.

There is substantial evidence about a little girl being eaten alive by a wolf and later being cut out of his belly! Grimm's Fairy Tales say so!

[Creationism does require faith, but there is also substantial proof to its authenticity.]
If you have proof, why do you need faith?
[...For instance, the Bible.]
So your proof is the Bible...the same document that says that insects have 4 legs, and that a global flood occurred without leaving a trace of its passing?

Creationism requires the ability to scrunch your eyes shut at the merest hint of evidence, And shove ones fingers into ones ears up to the wrist while bellowing loudly "LA LA LA I CANT HEAR YOU"

The jokes just write themselves.

"Creationism does require faith, but there is also substantial proof to its authenticity. For instance, the Bible."
The Babble wouldn't be taken as "proof" if it said the sky was blue. There's more to evidence, particularly scientific evidence, than just "some guy who's smart/old/wise/really, really dead/a shady huckster/etc said it so it must be true!"
Try gathering together some real evidence and presenting it.

The term 'for instance' tends to refer to there being more than one example available. Which you do not have.
Here's one of the argument styles you creationist can't seem to grasp: When we are talking about the validity of evolution, we don't often site Darwin's papers. There are simply too many real world examples of evolution to have to refer back to the original text. Please, please, pretty please stop referring to the bible as a 'proof'. It's not mathematics, you are not proving anything by believing the bible.
