Yes, we did and he is correct. There are clonal trees older but that is a very different critter.

Well it seems you have no proof, so we can safely say that the earth is over 4 billion years old, and the 6,000 to 10,000 year old creation event never happened.

Therefore evolution is true and you now know that your cult lied to you.

No it isn't. Bohart's fallacy is ad-hom followed by straw-man. He is never able to address the content of our posts, he rants at us, runs away when he's picked apart like a cooked fish, then he comes back and asserts the same fallacies all over again.
So pointing out that he's a lying for Jesus troll is not ad-hom when it is merely an accurate description.
Aint life grand? How about all those religious wackjobs killing each other....for what? They told them from burth God is great or ally okbar...? Anyway, God does have a plan...for population control. With each disease wipe off the earth God creates chaos by creating relogious wars//////ALLY OKBAR!!!!!!!!!!

While there is a good case for evolution, no one has conclusively DISPROVED creationism. Let's face it, no one really knows for sure and as complex and little understood as our universe is, we may never know.

The Bible is a story brought to life and evolution is a theory...simple. They put "limits" on the human animal to control and munipulate its world. Not hard to do. Look around genius..how intelligent would a race of starriders need to be to fool the human animal.....not at all. Religion and evolution are living proof.........think!

There are several ways that creationism has been disproved. Unless you want to claim almost an endless series of miracles. The fact that there are no observable population bottlenecks in all of the species of the world alone disproves it.

Science cannot absolutely prove an idea right, It can prove an idea wrong.

I suppose that you could use the omphalos argument, but the universe being created last Tuesday or Wednesday does no one any good at all.

Enough of the bible is disproven to cast a bad light on the whole of it.

The stuff that we can PROVE is wrong in the Bible is, to me, conclusive evidence of it all being a book of myths.

All the supernatural stuff going on in Genesis and Exodus is total provable myth. It fooled the early converts, and it continues to make suckers of people today

The record-holders for individual, non-clonal trees may be the Great Basin bristlecone pine trees from California and Nevada, in the United States. Through tree-ring cross-referencing, they have been shown to be more than 5,000 years old.

The "they want to be monkeys" is directed at the Atheist.

Time is so odd when you think of it.
Our Sun is aging so slowly compared to Pluto and just keeps right on going and some how nothing gets out of whack with all different speeds of time just in our solar system alone.
Rather strange thing this Time is.

How fast do you think time can get?

This has nothing to do with what we were talking about.

I'm here saying that your world-view is measurably wrong. The very foundation of the Christian religion is totally under attack, and you ARE losing the battle.

Science has totally disproven your version of the beginning of our world/universe. It has disproven your version of the beginnings of humanity (Adam/Eve), it has disproven your 'Flood', it has disproven your idea of how the different languages came about, it has also completely disproven the Hebrew diaspora out of Egypt.

These are important foundational myths of the Jewish and Christian people. They are attempts to establish the Judeo-Christian God as real and the supreme and only God of this planet and universe.

When the stories are proven to be myths (and they are); where does this leave the Judeo-Christian religion?

I would give it a shot but your question is rather unclear.
