WE know all about OOPARTS....whats the relevance?? No, wait, let me guess. It's proof that coal could can be made in your backyard instead of taking millions of years in the ground....therefore creationism is true.
Am I right??
Funny how all those "findings" were back when people believed in witches and such and had no real scientific understanding of what they were looking at...

Even then there was no scientific evidence for it.

Langoliers, have you found a "FERME" lab.

I knew that the idiot meant Fermilab, it is the sort of mistake a creatard would make.

He was pretending he knew facts that he did not know and yet he could not even spell "Fermi" correctly.

That was not a typo, that was the error that a pretender would make.
Have you found CERN?

In fact you Tried to correct his spelling of CERN (note: all capital letters guess what that means)
CERN is by Geneva, where as Fermi is in Chicago.
Then you claimed CERN could not produce the Higgs Boson. How's those toes tasting? You can pull your foot out of your mouth now.
No...listen you ignorant little shit, i clearly stated that CERN, the LHC, is where they did find the higgs boson. i stated Fermi did not have the power to find the higgs boson. and it does not.

get your shit straight before you attempt to lie about people who make you look like a mental midget...

we have world wide evidence of a 7 mile wide rock hitting Earth 65 MILLION years ago. not one ipta of evidence for a global flood in the past 500,000years.
it never happened.
Actually, its been at the very least, 20,000,000 years or longer since even a large percentage of the earth was covered in water.

There was an ice age back there somewhere, but I don't think that counts.

Speaking of ice ages....the last one ended about 8,000 BC and it has been calculated that as much as 200+ vertical feet of water was given back to the oceans as a result of this melting. I wonder what our ancient relatives thought about it.

A fossilized human skull was found in coal that was sold in Germany (mid-1800s). A jawbone of a child was found in coal in Tuscany (1958). Two giant human molars were found in Montana (1926). A human leg was found by a West Virginia coal miner. It had changed into coal.�pp. 34-35.
A woman, in Illinois, reportedly found a gold chain in a chunk of coal which broke open (1891). A small steel cube was found in a block of coal in Austria (1885). An iron pot was found in coal in Oklahoma (1912). A woman found a child's spoon in coal (1937).�p. 35.
In 1944 Newton Anderson claimed to have found this bell inside a lump of coal that was mined near his house in West Virginia. When Newton dropped the lump it broke, revealing a bell encased inside.
What is a brass bell with an iron clapper doing in coal that is supposed to be hundreds of
millions of years old? According to Norm Scharbough's book Ammunition (which includes a compilation of many such "coal anecdotes") the bell was extensively analyzed at the University of Oklahoma and it was found to contain an unusual mixture of metals, different from any modern usage. Photo and text from Genesis Park.
Man-made objects in rock.
An iron nail was found in a Cretaceous block from the Mesozoic era (mid-1800s). A gold thread was found in stone in England (1844). An iron nail was found in quartz in California (1851). A silver vessel was found in solid rock in Massachusetts (1851).
The mold of a metal screw was found in a chunk of feldspar (1851). An intricately carved and inlaid metal bowl was found in solid rock (1852). An iron nail was found in rock in a Peruvian mine by Spanish conquistadores (1572).�pp. 35-36.

I just went and looked some of that lot up.

The only available references seem to be from creationist or Art Bell-level sensationalist sources.

Oh, and Scharbough may not actually exist.

But we don't close our eyes...we have real experts who look at creationists confabulations occasionally and tell the truth about it.

Do you think we just make stuff up like you guys do??

No, no, no my friend...we have people, people who actually know science and practice it every day.

There is NO conspiracy here. Scientists are just a bunch of geeks who are prone to tell the truth about their findings.

Nope, it is obvious even today that they were right.

There is no evidence for a World wide flood. No time in the past billion years has the whole surface of the Earth been covered with water.

Nope, even that was only northern part of North America, Asia and Europe. And of course Antarctica. For example most of the U.S. has never been glaciated.

I have noticed that the comments are now avioding "Dark Matter" and going to new territory like the flood or even backwards to personal attacks. My foulup in the wrong accel lab folks, thanks for your correction, not sure how that make me a liar - doesnt change the real science facts that are testable and repeatable, nor the comments, quotes and paraphase's I made that are perfectly correct, the God Particle...NO dark matter found..perplexing, concerning..

Now its flood geology we seem to be treking to, my fav subject.

Its always been easy to determine continental flood current flow which occured as the flood waters ran off the earth, just take a look at the horseshoe mesa's from the air.. I call them "remnant topology". I had a very prominate geology PHd reasearcher on-board my 206 once and he quite agreed when i suggested this term as we flew over one near Medford, Oregon. He then bumbled and corrected himself because his indoctination finally overcame his observation. What was he thinking!! He later called me and we had a nice discussion but the sight caused him no small alarm. He offered no solution to the formation of the structure. Geologic structures often make alot of sense when interpreted from a catastrophic perspective. This includes ice age erosion, post-flood weather patterns and chain reaction natural dam breakouts. The Missoula flood hypothosis of a galloping seasonal glacier was mocked for 90 years by establishment geo's is a prime example of an eposide that reorganised the surface of Ore and Wa. and formed the eastern WA scablands and willamette valley sediments after 100 years + of cycles. All wrong in the text books of the day that had to be changed. Post Flood catastrophic events like this and the quick erosion of the Grand Canyon fit well in the dynamic environment of a post-flood world, and give uniformists terrible headaches to explain. I have a slide of the great conformity in the Grand Canyon that itself alone caused the conversion of a prominate mining geologist who later, useing the flood model, went out and made one of the largest gold discoveries in the last decade.
