Excerpted from an article in GSA Today.<quoted text>
What is our economic growth rate? 2% at best? That's basically a standstill. How many people have simply quit looking for work? Bet ya those numbers are inflated.
I have not found Noah's ark. Haven't been looking either. Here's a theory for you; polar ice sheets were melting, sea levels were rising, the Mediterranean rose and spilled into the Black Sea. Which at the time was probably a loci for human habitation. Geological evidence supports this but since you don't think Geology is a real science, I'm sure it won't mean anything to you.
“Geologists assess theories by how well they fit data, and creationists evaluate facts by how well they fit their theories. This simple distinction frames an unbridgeable intellectual rift. Nowhere is this divide deeper than over how to interpret the story of Noah’s Flood, for the ideas invoked to explain such an event have been refuted time and again, and there is no geologic evidence of a global deluge.”
The simple fact is if the world were as primitive today as it was 5000 years ago, people on what is now the Eastern Seaboard may well have thought Hurricane Floyd caused a worldwide flood. So what?
