I have six definitions of serpent and you assume only one of them?
I didn't take you for being stupid...
No, I did not assume at all. I was hinting that you needed to clarify your definitions as appropriate. But it appears when being applied to the Bible, clarifications are left deliberately vague on purpose. Handy.

Actually a creationist should not even acknowledge the find. It is a 1.8 million year old skull and it doesn't fit into their time line of a young earth. So it should be viewed as another blow to their story.
Only for Young Earth creationists. Old Earth creationists don't have a (theological) problem with deep time phenomena. Of course they DO have a problem with pretty much any real world phenomena which contradicts their ideas about creationism, but...(shrug)

That's just the way science goes. It proves itself wrong in what seems a daily basis.
There are so many 'science used to know' examples, it's hilarious.
Like science used to 'know' insects are made from rotting meat. And they taught that as 'fact'.
Nowadays, science tells us that humans are 200,000 years old. Then they find a 2 million year old human fossil.
What science 'knows' is unreliable.
Like I said, the creatards are grasping at straws.

Science has not "proved itself wrong".

This article was not about modern humans, which are only 200,000 years ago. It was about Homo erectus and some of our other forerunners. You did not understand the article. You should not be getting so excited.

And what science does is to get more and more correct every day. Was Newton "wrong" about gravity? Technically you could claim that. But he was right enough to get us to the Moon and back. He was not right enough for GPS systems. All this find does is to possibly clear up our understanding of our ancestors a bit more.

Perhaps our understanding of the past should be as diverse as our understanding of today's world. We tend to write off how populations get mixed up today, thinking it was not so in ancient history.
We however could find things haven't changed so much in this respect after all. LQQK V

BTW, facts are facts. They don't change. Theories may be modified or discarded in the light of new facts but facts remain facts.
Is that a fact? lol

Here are some facts for you. I never have said evolution did/does not happen. I never said earth is young. I never said science is bad. What I have said is science can be and has been wrong.

I don't swallow ever pill science throws out there unlike you. There may be less species of man than they claimed, from evidence there were. If you want to call it modifying a theory instead of being wrong have at it.

That is true, but it still won't keep them from hoping against hope that some evidence will go their way some day.

Evidently you and many others on here care what they think or you would just ignore them instead of arguing with them all the time. But you keep on telling yourself the myth of you don't care.

I don't argue with them at all, i just point out the facts that show they are members of a proven false cult. they try to argue they are not, but they fail...

Sure, it means something could have been wrong. Being wrong does not invalidate science. It's called the potential for falsification. It's what makes science scientific. Ideas are formed and are tested against evidence. If they pass those tests then they are TENTATIVELY accepted as correct. If not then we know they are incorrect, and our original ideas have to be modified, or in rarer cases, perhaps discarded completely. And this is how scientific knowledge progresses.

Of we care. But only because they push their ignorance in public schools. At least flat-Earthers are under no illusions that they may get their BS taught in public schools any time soon, so you may notice they don't often take as much flak here as your average creationists do.

Dude you just won't admit you care what they say for the sake of mere argument. The last 17 threads that have recently been commented on, you are the last one to comment in 12 of them. You just run around to them all trying to pick at someone. LOL

Not something I did. I referred to it as a lizard. You say the species was unknown. In that case do you know what type of animal it was after God cursed him and told him to crawl on his belly and eat dust for the rest of his days?
God cursed it to be a snake.

What sense would it make to curse a snake to be a snake?

Why do you assume the Serpent was a lizard?

Let's break that down a bit.
Man has not discovered signs of life on another planet. Check.
Does this mean that life on other planets do not exist. No.
Now let's consider the range which Man has the ability to observe in regard to the Universe.
Say Earth was a single grain of sand on a vast beach. Now let's say you dropped a dime on that beach, over the grain representing Earth. THAT is how much we can observe, and very limited observation at that. With this in mind, can you honestly believe that based solely on our observations, there is no other life forms in the Universe? Are you that simple minded?
No surprise makes more sense than you do...

...regarding the likelihood of there being life anywhere else in the universe; he/she just doesn't know "why".
