I guess you don't do that.

Good for you.
At least the flood on earth was documented by living humans at the the time of the flood. I've not read any eye witness accounts for a flood on mars. If you know of any please point them out.
I would love to read it.

I guess it depends which particular flood was documented.

The point I was making was more to do with the Grand Canyon.

Most YECs I've come across believe that something as large as the Grand Canyon could only have been created by a catastrophic worldwide flood.

Ahhh the Pi thing.
" Once in Indiana. Although the attempt to legislate pi was ultimately unsuccessful, it did come pretty close. In 1897 Representative T.I. Record of Posen county introduced House Bill #246 in the Indiana House of Representatives. The bill, based on the work of a physician and amateur mathematician named Edward J. Goodwin (Edwin in some accounts), suggests not one but three numbers for pi, among them 3.2, as we shall see. The punishment for unbelievers I have not been able to learn, but I place no credence in the rumor that you had to spend the rest of your natural life in Indiana.

Yes, and Indiana has been a laughing stock over this since that time.

Any chance you can say that again in English KJV, 2% and all the other screen names you use?

Most legislators know little or nothing about math or science. So they take the word of those they think are experts. In this case, they accepted the word of someone who was completely unqualified. To be fair, once actual mathematicians pointed out the flaws, the bill was tabled.

There was that senator who told Bill Maher that you didn't have to understand science to be a senator.

Wow just wow.

You're spot on; that's exactly what they do.
Their arguments are so weak they lack the fortitude to stand their ground - which explains why the vast majority of them are unregistered and posting under a variety of different names.
And they never can tell, how we know this.

I think I've counted three religionists who deny having religious faith but defend it for all they're worth. That's not just weak it's disingenuous or downright dishonest. It seems to be a relatively new phenomenon. They aren't worth engaging with in my opinion.

We need to bear in mind some may be children or have some mental issue, but most just seem to be nuts.

It makes a mockery of the PM's pledge of £35m to stop FGM. Ending child abuse should be bigger than party politics.

In New York recently, orthodox jewish grandparents required a dead baby to be circumcised before it was buried. Mad buggers.

OK, I'll try Noah.

Noah, you are found guilty of sycophancy, and guilty of being an accessory to genocide.

Your sentences shall run consecutively.
