There are two or three creos that are nice and sensible people, but unfortunately moat are horrible and nasty people who spew hate, maz here is the worst, she shows the very worst of the creos society, I like bat foy and also Charles iwedemi even if others don't, but I can't stand the constant crazy ranting from creos that have no evidence and make no sense at all, thay question scientists and science itself, even thoe it is humanities greatest success and has given us everything else, creos talk crap about evolution while sitting at a computer and using the web, all of which comes from science, that's because science works, and myth fairytails of god are a joke, a very very bad joke

I'm a Christian and I agree with you.

I don't think everything in the bible is to be taken literally.

It's a scientific hypothesis, of UNKNOWN, INcomplete origin.

Finally, the abundance of the "light elements" Hydrogen and Helium found in the observable universe are thought to support the Big Bang model of origins.

It's also the FIRST stanzas in Genesis..

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

3 And God said,“Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.

But either way anyone looks at it-

In the beginning... there was probably LIGHT!!!

think outside the box, where else could life on earth have come from?
All that does is push the question back, if life on earth came from another planet, where did that life come from and so on and so on, untill you get right back to the orifinal lifeform, where did tgat cone from, so the panspermia theory is a meaningless idea, it just pushes the question of how life came about, further back

I cannot imagine reading all of the Bible "literally"

That would border on insanity.

How can someone say the earth is just 6000 years old?
Radiometric dating proves the earth is more than this age.
No timexs' or radiometers back then.

If one only ever sees the The world from a limited perspective, that's all they'll ever know.

A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world, based on a body of facts that have been repeatedly confirmed through observation and experiment. There is no scientific theory of Creationism.

Why were many of those rocks created to look like they were accreted to look like they were laid down millions of years earlier in sedimentary basins?
MY answer is that it was a miracle just like the grapes that were in the process of making wine from water.

There is one creationist theory that predicted the cure for ALL cancer a few years ago and it claimed that our own immune system could do it. Does anybody remember SCPID?

Things are the same today. The powers that be can destroy records and keep moving goal post for their agendas.

Thanks for that bit of information, Straa. We don't hate science but we don't seem to understand the theory of evolution from non human to human, it really has no concrete base or evidence.

That is how far your understanding can take you to. The process of giving birth is called, what, creation or evolution?
Don't be a daft.

This does not tell us of the deriviation of the first stage of rocks or if they originated with suddenness or not.
It tells us when they originated.

Wasn't your claim that they all originated at the same time?

Radiometric dating says otherwise.

God bless you. The world itself, is a miracle. How can one find water inside a rock, how does it get in there?
This and many others will tell us that the world itself is a miracle.

I thought there is an answer to that. The Big Bang.
