That would have been quite a while before your make believe flood.
Or 4000 years ago. You know at the end of the flood! When God raised up the mountains and lowered the ocean floors.

A moth does not fly into the fire thinking I'm going to burn. The moth still burns. And those sitting around the camp fire can see the moth and try and talk them out of it but the moth flys into the fire anyways.
Still the everlasting idiot.

If you want people to believe your nonsense you need to come up with evidence, not stupid metaphors. There is no evidence that supports your beliefs. There is no more evidence for Christianity than there is for the beliefs of Hindus, Muslims, Shinto, or even Pastafarianism.

No, we the mountains were not raised at the end of the flood. The evidence shows that it happened long before then.

I have one question for you:

Actually you do.

That's why I asked you to support your claims. If I make claims I can back them up if necessary, or let you know that it's just my opinion, whichever is appropriate.

The "primordial atom" is what scientist believe triggered the creation of the universe. Although some are now referring to it as a singularity but that causes a little confusion because of their associations with black holes.
Only to those who aren't very well versed in it. But I imagine it would cause even more confusion calling it an "atom", though it may (or may not) have once been the size of one. However the point still stands that no magic is invoked in the theory.

As is the theory of gravity. That does not necessarily render them invalid.

Your personal incredulity is irrelevant. The evidence is convincing to scientists. The reason being the evidence passes scientific testing.

Correct. But they tend to be right more often than fundies.

What's more, it's other scientists who correct incorrect scientists.

Using science.

Why are sea shells found on the top of mt everest?
Aug 23rd, 2012 @ 12:31 am › Matt Easton
When they climbed Mt Everest in 1953, Edmund Hillary got up to the 26 000 foot level and he began to find sea shells. Some stuff they found up there were Petrified clams and Sea shells packed together. Millions of them. Interesting thing about these clams, that are even found of top of Mt Everest, the clams are petrified and dead, I believe, and closed. Well you can walk along the beach and pick up a whole train load of sea shells but you hardly ever find a matched pair. And you never find them closed. The only way this could happen is these had to be buried alive.….. How do you get these on top of Mt Everest? In case you don’t know, Mt Everest is a little ways from the beach. Secondly, clams don’t climb mountains very good. So what happened to these petrified claims anyway? Some places they are ten feet thick in the world.….. Well the only way I can think of this to happen is for an awful lot of clams to be buried instantly. I think during the Flood of Noah.
(sigh) There was no 'Flood of Noah.'

They are found on the top of Everest (and many other mountains) because of mountain building. Geological forces push rock upwards from the ground. Hence it's very easy for sea fossils to get to higher ground in this way.

Unfortunately what your flood can't explain is how fossils got buried - intact - INSIDE solid rock.

Nor how modern tortoises were able to outrun velociraptors.

Or how dead male leatherback turtles managed to outrun them too.

Plus a whole host of other stuff.

You guys show me no evidence of evolution, except say evolution is proven by scientists. Now if I find out you're a atheist, you're the stupidest person alive!!!
