Yes. I keep arguing the earth can globally flood itself with or without us on it. That's true.
Let's cut to the chase. In your opinion, is the biblical story of Noah's flood true. Yes or no.
Huh

Evolution has some proof to back it up..Creation has nothing and the whole creation story is filled with stuff that can not happen and makes no sense.

lol...talking about two faced phonies. Someone worth their knowledge of science even as an amature would try and give at the least an opinion to an actual question. I asked an actual question of where the real sea level lies if their was one. One poster attempted to answer it. You did as predicted. Nice job :)

Predictably the massive ignorance is on your part because you seem not to know how to research a claim/remark/question made by another poster to see if it's even credible or not. You just do as usual and make an ignorant statement you think is amazing intellectual for a response. Nice job as usual.
No research is necessary. You have no credibility.

The salt lakes and what you are writing about was caused by the fact, that nearly the entire United States was once a shallow sea.
Where I live was the bottom of the sea once. But this was so far back in the geologic history of Earth, there were no men to float a boat. Nor any to build it.
I think you misunderstand, I was responding to No Surprised link to https://www.dmr.nd.gov/ndgs/Mineral/nd_saltne...

Which references sodium sulphate salt (not sea salt which is sodium chloride) deposits were laid down approximately 12,000 years ago.

Had the article mentioned sea salt then I would have stated exactly what you stated.

So the opposite for you is your position that theories don't get proven. Seriously?
Yeah, they become facts, right doofus?

Do you think absence of evidence is evidence of absence?(a little saying from dude)
"In some circumstances it can be safely assumed that if a certain event had occurred, evidence of it could be discovered by qualified investigators. In such circumstances it is perfectly reasonable to take the absence of proof of its occurrence as positive proof of its non-occurrence." - Irving Copi

Really? If it's so easy to be understood how it was done, why hasn't anyone endeavored to do it to prove we know how it was done? We have guesses for how the pyramids were built and that's all. We could never build a pyramid with the rudimentary tools Egyptians used. Attempts to carve out a single block of stone from a rock quarry and chiseled flat on all four sides and carried to the Nile and to the great pyramid area have failed except modern tools be used for a 'helping' hand.
Why don't you inform me of something I haven't read about concerning this topic?
the fact that no-one has ever given it a real try (because it would be a silly thing to do, just as building the first pyramids was..) doesn't mean by any stretch that we could not do it.

You show your ignorance and narrow mindedness by what you write and your ignorance of science as well.
It seems you are on the wrong forum, but if you look I'm sure you will find one solely for bigots.
Any scientist worth their salt will tell you that we must consider all possibilities and yet with one sweeping statement you refuse to consider that there is any other possible theory other than your own, which is exactly what a bigot does. If scientists and inventors did that then no we would not be able to type anything.
The reason we have progressed is because scientists have treated the theories of other scientists with scepticism and done their own experiments so they can reach their own conclusions.
If the world of science was populated only by people like you, then we would be in serious trouble. It needs to be populated by people like myself who don't rule out any theory and treats them all with scepticism, because then and only then can we make any advances.
The evolution theory may well be the prevailing theory at the moment but their is nothing to say that somewhere down the line it will not be found to be a load of rubbish and completely wrong. Science is littered with such instances. Such as the world being flat and anyone who dared to say anything else or espouse any other theory was considered an heretic. A bit like yourself and the idea there could be any theory other than the evolution theory.
The idea of science is that you take the results and reach your own conclusions and not that you parrot the conclusions of the scientist who carried out the experiments.
LOL!! You claim someone is ignorant of science then go on a rant exposing your complete ignorance of science!!! LOL!! Classic god-bottery!!!

Evolution and Creation? Evolution has created everything we know ... LOL!!
In a manner of speaking? Evolution as a term changes by context. No human is "created" knowing much of anything - and some don't seem willing or able to outgrow that "state of Grace".(A couple monikers come to mind...)

I wasn't aware of fresh water salt deposits , but I see it is showing it.
But this area was under the ocean in the Cambrian, as Utah and most of the US.

What a great way to justify misogyny, slavery, infanticide and murder. So much for the morality of Christianity. Look over there, those people did bad things too.

Yes No Surprises brought it up as though it confirmed Noah’s flood, the fact that sea salt and the salt found under the lakes of North Dakota are two completely different chemicals seems to escape his limited intellect.

The world map changes considerably over aeons, for example even though the top of Mount Everest is a little way from the nearest beach fossilised clams and sea shells can be found there indicating the mountain peak was once below sea level. Plate tectonics have now verified this and show that as far as continents go, India is on an express route north causing the upwelling

Not so many thousands of years ago Southern England was joined by land to Europe by a landmass known as Doggerland, hence the nautical area known as Dogger bank. Trawlers still bring up petrified tree trunks and bones of land animals from the North Sea.

One of the first commercial marketing ideas to be seen in the UK was in a London dockside pub in the 15th century. It was the thighbone of a woolly mamoth that was trawled from the Dogger area. Was shown as an attraction claiming to be a giants leg bone.

Good to see that marketing has not changed so much over the centuries

Now it is more less a religion dealing with impossibilities rather then facts.

That is not true. God truly exist. The earth and all its property( ties), is a testimony to that, it is not man made.

That's the claim. It's not proof.

It's not even evidence.
