Everybody knows that discovering and mining of oil requires no knowledge of lithology, plate tectonics, paleontology, stratigraphy, or any other science.
All you need to find oil is faith. Of course, that would be incredibly tedious, expensive, and wouldn't yeild any results, but I can ignore that.
I've always wondered if takeing oil out of the earth wasnt causeing earth quakes ..the plates are going to move ..maybe oil helps it move smoother??

Is it a fact that rabbits chew their own cud? If so science has been trumped by the bible (LEV 11:6).

Also, is it fact that Adam was created after other animals (Genesis 1) or after (Genesis 2). How can they both be true?

Could be why there were no earthquakes 2 or 3 hundred years ago and earlier, before we were extracting oil from the earth.

Evolution requires an old earth. Geology confirms the earth is very old. Understanding geology and past life (which is what oil is a product of) helps us discover oil.

On a more vague point though, the scientific method is the underlying principle that unites all science, whether it be studying earths stratigraphy, creating medicines to treat diseases, manufacturing plastics from oil, or studying life's history on our planet. The scientific method remains consistent. You cannot remove it based on personal whims and still expect to be remain logically coherent.

Noah built an altar (an elevated structure) and his sons must have seen how he built it, and Nimrod may have fashioned towers after its design. The towers may have been pyramid structures that were made of stones that were made from morter that was desolved in water with acid plant extracts or slime as the Bible calls it in GEN 11:3. Pyramids have been found in South America and a white pyramid is also in China. Of course the most famous are those in Egypt and it is interesting that some of the Egyptian mummies had traces of cocain and nicotine which is found in native plants in America and not in Africa.

So the men who wrote the bible can make mistakes because they're men and like you said even if inspired. Ill take the word of a man maybe being inspired by God. Than the word of some other man inspired by some other man being inspired by some other man writing a paper on evolution. Btw if evolution is correct you guys should use robin Williams as your missing link that dude has some massive hair.

What is funny is the THEORY of evolution is being forced on us as fact. Yet when faced with the FACT of the Bible these same people say the facts lie and there THEORY should be law...SAD. Satan is smart....and people are dumb.

Also, how about instead of telling ME to do research to prove that YOU are correct, you point me to some article that indicates such, rather than using conclusory statements, which basically amount to you saying I am are wrong, and you are right, without using any facts or data to support your position?

Yo Sublime.
A genetics major? Double Fine was unaware.
What was said argument about?
Hey wassup?

Yes, I was. I worked in a research lab during college and shortly before graduation realized that I did not want to get an advanced degree and do that sort of thing for the rest of my life. I wasnít really sure what I wanted to do at that point. However, I had a roommate who was planning on going down the road I eventually took and he suggested I would be good at it and that I look into doing the same. I figured why not. Unlike college, I buckled down in graduate school, stopped going out all the time and partying, applied myself, got good grades, and here I am today.

The argument was over junk DNA. I was trying to explain that more recent research is demonstrating that this DNA is not junk, and instead plays an important role in gene regulation.
Recent research is suggesting that many genes are more like building blocks, that many species share in common. Junk DNA is more like an architect who ultimately shapes development. In much the same way that two buildings that use the same exact bricks, steel, and what not can look remarkably different simply because different architects designed the buildings, you can have two species that look remarkably different, not so much because their genes are different, but because so called Junk DNA controls when genes are turned on and turned off.

Itís still all very cutting edge, however. There is a lot we donít know.

Thank you. While we don't agree on the origins of the universe I do try to remain respectful.

I'm a Christian and I will never argue the age of earth even the bible is unclear on the age of earth. The bible says the earth was without form an the spirit of God moved over the face of the deep. This implies earth was here before god started creating anything. Than how long where Adam an eve in the garden making like the bunnies before they were banished? What was going on outside the garden during that time? That idea that we Christians spout about the earth only being 8k years old is bunk the proof is every where
