If that is the case, then why is it that the ONLY PLACE SCP is being referred to is a tiny, little corner of Topix?

You would expect to see it on the cover of "Scientific American".

Or, more likely on an "Answers in Genesis", or similar Creationist website (which themselves carry a load of BS, so your NON-theory would fit nicely therein!).

Perhaps you can have your Mom get you some construction paper and some crayons and you can 'publish' your 'theory' yourself!

Maybe your Mom will even put it up on the refrigerator!

That's spin doctoring.
Of course, Hitler invoked the theory of Evolution in a bigoted fashion, just like he invoked Christianity in a bigoted fashion. Was either case an acceptable example of the disciplines required by either perspective? Not at all.
Just goes to show, the rabble will give credibility to any theory that sends table scraps their way. Yep! For the most part, the scientists and the clergy both knew to keep their mouths SHUT in Hitler's Germany. We don't do that here though. ;)
Hitler was, without question, an evil bastard that misappropriated many things for his twisted agenda. But Darwin wasn't one of them.

He's already played with the waves in water. He then moved over to rock for some reason. I'm betting that his next Megaman villain theme will be about Bass and Treble. FREESERVANT doesn't like to stray too far from the "wave" theory of God.....waving goodbye doesn't seem to help though.

Perhaps, with a little coordination, we can introduce him to the "spud" theory of God. He can then try to work out the harmonics behind the average Idaho Russet.

Actually, Hitler sat on a fence concerning Evolution, being predisposed to what others call "social Darwinism" but allowing Darwin to be classified as subversive. It was the Party that actually banned his books.

Interesting reference.

It may have been the party that banned the book but I doubt they did much without his approval.

<quoted text>I thought it was amusing. About the only thing of interest that you may have ever written. It still doesn't change the fact that you are one of those dishonest naysayers that likes to redifine a term to a point where you can get out of bed with the KK so to speak. Anyone can do it. It isn't a triumphant achievement of intellecutal prowess. Very much the opposite.

So far, I have been as unimpressed with you as I have with KOB, MattedHair, FreeService, marksmonkey, Shoo Bee and that weirdo the underwear whisperer. And lest I forget "god himself-absorbed."

According to you all God did it. Science is bad or at least the parts you don't like. Every word of the Bible is true even the contradictory parts, the errors, and the completely abstract. Apparently when God dictated it, he made sure to leave out a whole bunch of stuff that you are now left to backfill with conjecture that you magically claim as fact. Why God probably air conditioned the Ark and automated the animal management system. All that energy released by 40 days of rain capable of inundating the whole planet was just magically whisped away by the breath of the Lord. The scribes just fell asleep during that part and it didn't get included along with dinosaurs, the real age of the earth, and the answers to all that nasty science you hate. I am glad they included the part with the talking snake trying to seduce the naked woman. It has my freudian side all atingle.

Now you and the rest of your ilk come on here with unsupported claims that require a back-breaking suspension of disbelief in order to accept it. It is all very amusing.
I never redefined a word. Those definition came straight out of Merriam-Webster. Not made up at all.

Dan I'm not trying to impress you or anyone on here. I on here for entertainment nothing more and that is exactly what Topix is for, entertainment.

Dan I would say that 90% of science is good. You know the kind. Testable theory's and laws. But telling people that the laws of physics did not apply for a split second after the Big Bang is really quite a joke. How is that testable?

Most of the water from the flood came from the fountains of the deep. And only when God ended the flood did he raise up the mountains and lower the ocean floors. Try and keep up.

"The scribes just fell asleep during that part and it didn't get included along with dinosaurs, "

Now try and understand that the word dinosaurs is a word that was invented recently. The Bible does describe them however under other names "Behemoth" and "Dragons". Rather funny the Bible describing your dinosaurs thousands of years before the first bones were found.

<quoted text>Sorry Langoliers, but archaeology and archaeology in conjunction with some of the other ‘earth’ sciences have disproven a number of the Biblical myths.

For over a hundred years archaeology has been looking for evidence of a million+ Hebrews walking the Sinai desert for 40 years and have been unable to find ANY evidence at all for this event. So you could say that this is an event that lack of evidence disproves the story.

Geology primarily, but with much input from archaeology has never found any evidence for a world-wide flood. Archaeology's input in this is that it can prove that the WHOLE earth (minus Antarctica) was inhabited both before and after the supposed flood with no change in population or culture.

Archaeology, paleoanthropology, and DNA prove that we humans did evolve from the earlier ‘Homo’ species, and how long ago, pretty much destroying the Adam and Eve myth.

Archaeology along with other ‘earth’ sciences has proven that mankind has been around 200,000 +- years, as well as proving that other pre-humans were making tools and fire many hundreds of thousands of years ago…totally destroying the notion that the earth and humans are 6,000 +- years old.

Archaeology has disproven the Biblical story of Joshua and walls of Jericho. It has proven that Jericho’s walls and those of the other conquests (except for one) written about in the Bible, were already down, or were downed at a different date, or never down at all.

The Bible tells the story of Abraham and says he came from Ur of the Chaldea’s somewhere around 2,000 BC….However archaeology proves that the Chaldean's did not control Ur until about 500-600 BC thereby giving us the clue that ‘Moses’ did NOT write the Pentateuch. Archaeology also disproved the story of Abraham rescuing Lot from the city of Dan because its name wasn't ‘Dan’ until 300 years later. Further proof that the Abraham story was written later thereby excluding Moses as the author.

Don’t say that archaeology can’t disprove the Bible….it already HAS in the very foundational stories of the religion
Lack of evidence is not evidence.

Please provide the Bible verse where this ("mountains up, ocean floors down") is specified.

<quoted text>You miss the point.

We would expect the chronicles of the Bible to increasingly conform to historical evidence, the more recent the records, especially in the era when events could be recorded as they happened. Myth blending into legend blending into history.

Before the era of writing and allegedly written down in the time of Moses, the myths of Creation, Adam and Eve, Noah, the Tower of Babel, Methuselah etc, all have absolutely no physical evidence and the pure flavour of creation myth.

Claiming that the real existence of say Babylon proves the earlier claims of the Bible is as silly as claiming that the real existence of Troy proves Homer's contention that Achilles was the son of the river goddess Thetis.
The proof of King David only proves that the Bible (the only documentation of King David previously) was validated in respect of its information on King David.
