Just once would like creationist to have one small shred of proof or data to try to prove there belief.
Primitive humans used to tell imaginary stories to pass on beliefs. Now, just because of print they think it MUST be true. The human brain developed imagination as a coping mechanism. To cope with reality, many humans have a problem seperating fact(life in general)from imagination(The Bible). Once the God seed is planted in the brain all reality is lost in a world of imaginary stories and pictures that seems real to most brainwashed followers.

time was made when space was made they are tied together. this is why time is relative, why time is different in orbit than it is down here on Earth.

<quoted text>I don't buy it. Funny how you remember something so well that you claim happened over 20 years ago. At least you didn't say it happened last year. You got a lot of information about the man from a brief phone conversation.

I can't imagine a man of science would point to a living animal and call it an example of a transitional species. That would be rather stupid. Of course it is a stupid topic. Transitional to what? That would require three points and not just a single point or even two points. I suppose I will have to spell it out. Transitional means coming from something and going to something.

A man that wrote a book entitled Evolution and then did a second edition had nothing to offer in support of evolution? Are you daft as well as a liar?

You are name dropping again. I would imagine that most evolutionists were aware of Michael Denton's book regarding evolution unless you mean his work in erythrocytes. What significance is knowing Denton's work germane to evolution? You are just throwing more window dressing into your post.

Maybe you called and maybe you didn't. Maybe he talked to you and maybe he didn't. We have only the word of a person with very little credibility and an agenda. What is supported by evidence is that Patterson was quote mined and continues to be quote mined as you have done. He was opposed to his words being taken out of context and his public views on this certainly do not reflect the story you tell. They do fit the pattern of using fundamentalist propaganda to support your belief that you have established on here.
dan I remember things from over 50 years ago with ease. Do you have memory issues dan?

Think about time dan. Where did it come from. It such a strange dimension isn't it dan? Length and width and hight all constant but time is not a constant dan is it? what's up with that dan?
the fabric of space can be stretched, so the three dimensions you referenced are not constant just like time....

How do you know time among other things did not exist before your so called big bang. Something had to be there to go bang did it not?

I understand that at night sometimes you guys can still hear the screams of your victims. 50 year ago. That is fantastic. Not even all that booze and fundamentalist stupidity has cured you eh. Excellent.

You tell us brother. No memory demons running through you. Amen.

So you are saying time did in fact start 13.7 billion years ago and nothing existed before that.

So you admit something was there before the big bang. So then what makes you think time was not there as well, because that is what you have been told?

Do explain what you mean by everything was there, in a singularity. That way there will be no confusion.

Yes you said that but again - Do explain what you mean by everything was there, in a "singularity". Do you mean it was one, it was unique, it was of unusual quality? Explain what you mean That way there will be no confusion

So translation is you have no clue what you mean. All you can do is repeat what you have read or been told and have no sense in what it means.
