Wrong! When the ice goes out on a lake it does it in a matter of a few hours and it sinks not to the bottom but down a good 5 to 10 feet. I have been on the lake when this takes place. So don't tell me it don't happen.
Nope, ice doesn't sink. Ice floats in water, what you are probably seeing is called an optical illusion, the same way deserts look wet when they are actually dry.

Early Earth 'was covered in water'

"Just 2% to 3% of the Earth's surface would have been dry land, compared with 28% today."

It was never completely covered. Learn to read your own sources, and posting one that supports the opposing argument is never intelligent.

so you actually have that much faith that you would believe that science could tell that there was 2% land mass on the earth 2.5 billion years ago?...without margin of error greater that 1%?

You posted it as a source, so you accept what it states as well, if you call him an idiot, then that makes you one as well. Moron.

well if I have to explain your own scienctific concepts to you...
cosmology is theoretical scienctific ideas of origin.
and the whole debate is about origin...as in origin of species...is it not?
Two totally different topics.

What difference does it make if the universe is steady state or not?

You probably do not understand that subject either.

The steady state model is now largely discredited, as the observational evidence points to a Big Bang-type cosmology and a finite age of the universe.

I'll bet the BBC Hardtalk interview with Penrose is the background for xxx00xxx assertions.

Not really. You made wrong statements. I told you why they were wrong. Instead of defending your position you called me names. I again offered to continue discussing the subject. You avoided it. Therefore, and especially considering your positing history, it is not unfair to point out quite rightly that you do not have a clue what you're talking about. Whereas I on the other hand am capable of discussing the subject and can back my claims up with scientific evidence.
To which you then reply with your best Nelson Muntz impression.
Yeah, yeah,yeah why don't you just provide a wiki link to the abiogenesis myth, click your heels three times , and repeat life created itself, life created itself, life......

Actually no, that ultimately makes you the biggest moron for not reading your sources before posting them. If you had even a small amount of honesty you'd just fess up that you never actually read anything and just plucked the first link with a title that sounded good .... but thank you for demonstrating that you have no honesty either. So you are a dishonest idiot now.

I hear the Kentucky creation museum is so popular that it is expanding and adding two new wings. Continuing with their established theme,one wing is for Santa Claus and the other is for the Easter Bunny .Three fairy tales in a row .

Why do you still insist everything must be created? Is ice created, or the result of water losing all it's energy?

No it isn't. In fact it's the complete opposite.
You can't have free will in the face of an all powerful all knowing entity.
Worship or burn. And God already knows what you're gonna "choose" because choice is an illusion.
Either that or God is not God.
In the garden-story god is not all knowing and the jewish interprtation is about free-will. Free to accept religion.
or like moses would say: by seeing the grace of our ways others are free to accept.

Ideas of all-knowing/present/mighty etc. came with christianity.

But exactly those ideas can easily be disproved. Christine M going into history on this board with E=mc^2. And kittenkoder with evolution having no direction.

You still cannot admit you made a mistake. This is why no one takes you, or any other religious person, serious. Your fear of being wrong is what fuels your delusion, it's what prevents you from seeing reality. You simply cannot admit you don't know something, anything, at all, you just have to pretend you know, you have to pretend you are correct, even when the evidence that you are wrong is out for the world to see.

My point to Charles when I bought up the analogy of homosexuality to pedophilia was that literal interpretations of the bible are useless.
....but you had to knock over your tin soldier. It's what you came here to do. You still serve your master.
Oh so your beef is with Charles!
Well he can use some more flack...dh

But not that anyone else noticed, given the way you implicate everybody.
