Quote# 51351

[Get a load of this latest piece from Byers ... especially the part where he thinks that "ice" and "frozen water" are two different entities ... I kid you not ...]

The timeframes must be short enough to fit biblical chronology. Creationists differ but this one sees the "ice age' starting some 4 centuries or so after the flood, by tree ring count, and lasting a few hundred years and over with a sudden melt.
Now there are issues about glacial covering of earth. i believe one creationist has suggested the "glaciers" were not ice but frozen water. that is they were not created by weight of snow but massive frozen water from rain and snow.
Yet their movement would need explanation and other details. The source of the megameltwater events, a famous topic in geomorphology here, would be explained better if the "ice" was just frozen water mostly. However I'm just suggesting this.

I didn't know the rock this erratic came from but its fine what it is. A rock from volcanic or heating/melting rock with a source in sedimentary works for me. These rocks all from the great results of the flood year.
We just quicken the pace of moving continents and their crashing/splitting and here and there volcanic outporings under or above ground, though covered by water, and so metamorhic (sp) rock.

Then a glacier or moving frozen ice or meltwater picked up a piece and dropped it downstream.

@OV:

But, I -like- how the repeats keep including additional context! :P


*peruses new material*

Damn.. he just KEEPS trying to redefine reality to fit his "arguments," and remains completely oblivious to why he's wrong.

Impressive. Most impressive.

Ok, my head hurts now, and I think some of my IQ points just dropped to the floor.

"frozen ice"!

He said "frozen ice"!

Mr. Byers fills me with joy.

This guy puts a massive amount of effort into being stupid.

It gets even better.

a mind far far away

Wait, so he didn't pick up on his mistake? He's actually convinced that ice and frozen water are actually two different things? And then he adds frozen ice to the mix? This has got to be a joke. Has to be. It makes my head hurt just thinking about it. There's no words to express the level of stupid it takes to think like that. He might have been dropped on his head too many times when he was a baby, or he was just thrown around like a football by his parents. Either way, there's been a massive amount of head trauma that seriously needs to be looked at by a doctor.

I tried so hard to make sense of this, and then I realized that Robert Byers must be "special".

... There is no way ANYONE can be THIS stupid.

is it me or is he simply quoting someone when he says "i believe one creationist has suggested the "glaciers" were not ice but frozen water"?

An idiot, and a terrible writer.

@Phil

Judging by the rest, it could be sneak words, too. When someone smacks him down on the statement, he just says "Well I'm just saying what I heard" thinking it absolves him.

I can't believe this. It kills me.

Holy stupid, Batman!

That's correct, old chum, Specifically since we only asked for fries with that.

"Not ice but frozen water."
Yep, and what I drank with breakfast this morning was not orange juice but liquified fruit of the orange tree.

"Were not ice but frozen water"

Please restrain me before I bash my head against a wall so hard, I suffer permanent brain damage.

"The timeframes must be short enough to fit biblical chronolgy." That's your first serious error, right there.

After that, it just gets worse and becomes instant WTF material.

I believe that creationist was him.

How does one freeze ice?

If you start out with "it must fit the Bible", you're already wrong.

There have been several ice ages, silly. The most recent one ended about 10 000 years ago. If you're really strict, we're still in an ice age, apparently, as Greenland, the Arctic and Antarctic are mostly covered in ice.

What's the difference between ice and frozen water, Bobby, and what is frozen ice?
