It was just an observation; commentary; opinion.

Your post was ridiculous, and not worthy of a rebuttal.

Life as the manifestation we are undergoing is a collection of experiences. Experiences can do two things, depending on how long you are undergoing them. They can create an attitude, or a perspective. One is an ongoing reaction, the other is a reasoning of what happened usually after surviving the events after reacting to them, which leads to a more reasoned reaction in further events.

Now, the worth of those attitudes and perspectives after you get unplugged from this place is a matter of conjecture from this vantage point. You make your best call.

Experiencing is getting an education, learning is gaining a perspective from it. One of the first things everyone learns is that although another human may not outright lie to you, they can certainly be wrong in the assessments. Just like we all individually can be. But they can also be wrong en masse. That is something to keep in perspective to modify your attitude. Yes, that includes science and religion.

Take a herd of cows. Each cow is individual. Each has differing levels of intelligence, even. Put a few thousand together and you will not get an Einstein. You will get a herd of cows. Intelligence is not additive. You can learn to follow the ass in front of you to get food and water, the best grass, and to even get laid. That is education. But you have to lift your head up to the sky and to peek over the herd to see where you are to even get a perspective. You may even notice the chutes and cattle trucks the herd is headed to. There is always a cow leading the herd into them everyone else follows. That is what you get for eating good and having life so easy and following the herd.

Wild cows work a little different. They pay more attention to the surroundings, and above.

Be careful which herd you follow. Man eats cows, the spirit in the sky doesn't.

Well, that was 30 years ago, and she didn't leave with a lover.

Does your husband say Oh, God or thank God when you leave with your lovers? Which does he say when you return?

You forgot sedimentary rocks which also make up the continental crust. Did you really think sedimentary rocks didn't count?
Dave Nelson wrote:
Metamorphic is formed from sedimentary and igneous and older metamorphic. Igneous is from high pressure and heat? From the mantle and older rock caught in it? None of those are pure. They are recycled chemicals. Results of accretion and forces applied. Over billions of years.
All Earth's rocks were molten when the earth formed but then some cooled down to form the crust but that was long before there was life.
Dave Nelson wrote:
Basically dust turned into rock turned into dust turned into rock turned into dust turned into rock and points in between. Any relatively pure stuff is a result of the heat and pressure, and magnetic forces below being pushed upward.
Just because most rocks have eroded doesn't mean all rocks have eroded. There are still some that are billions of year old. This is because it's the oceanic crust that is subducted the most rather than continental crust.
Dave Nelson wrote:
As I said, you are taking a snapshot of an end product and making it the base of your observations, and not the whole process itself. That is where your dating, stratification, geologic columns, etc come from. And the fossil record. There is a circular logic to it.
Geologists are smart people. They know how the different types of rocks form and how to date them. They understand the whole process just fine and if they say a layer of rock is billions of years old then I have more faith in their science than in your empty rhetoric.
Dave Nelson wrote:
You don't have a clue as to what was recycled in that igneous and metamorphic rock. You are reciting textbook descriptions without understanding the process, and getting a wrong picture.
You still seem to be under the delusion that all rocks have been recycled.
Geologists go to great lengths to find rocks from all the geological periods and some periods are poorly represented but examples do still exist.

“The Paleoproterozoic is the first of the three sub-divisions (eras) of the Proterozoic occurring between 2,500 to 1,600 million years ago.”

“During this era the earliest global-scale continent-continent collisional belts developed.
These continent and mountain building events are represented by the 2.1-2.0 Ga (Ga = billion year) Transamazonian and Eburnean Orogens in South America and West Africa; the ~2.0 Ga Limpopo Belt in southern Africa; the 1.9–1.8 Ga Trans-Hudson, Penokean, Taltson–Thelon, Wopmay, Ungava and Torngat orogens in North America, the 1.9–1.8 Ga Nagssugtoqidain Orogen in Greenland; the 1.9–1.8 Ga Kola–Karelia, Svecofennian, Volhyn-Central Russian, and Pachelma Orogens in Baltica (Eastern Europe); the 1.9–1.8 Ga Akitkan Orogen in Siberia; the ~1.95 Ga Khondalite Belt and ~1.85 Ga Trans-North China Orogen in North China.”
“These continental collisional belts are interpreted as having resulted from 2.0-1.8 Ga global-scale collisional events that led to the assembly of a Paleo-Mesoproterozoic supercontinent named "Columbia" or "Nuna".[2][3]”

Stephie says that lately I've been spending more time here than with her; I'm afraid she's right. I don't know how I got so wrapped up in this. She says my personality is changing. I'm not taking a chance on losing her on account of a bunch of anonymous strangers on an internet chat forum.
There are a few people here that I would call Topix friends, and those people I will miss. The rest, not so much.
Anyway, I guess li'l timmy is off the hook, and I no longer have to try to decipher Aspuu's weird posts, and I especially won't have to put up with that asshole waaasssuuup anymore. His slimy posts always make me feel like I've been violated, and make me want to take a shower. He really is scum.
So Macumazahn, Al Garcia, Aura Mytha, Catcher, Double Fine, Ben Adam, Clark Griswold, Hukt, Water Nymph, Tide with Beach, New Age Spiritual Leader, and those other cyber friends whose names don’t come to mind at the moment—blessed be, my friends, and hang in there. I’m gonna miss you. Maybe once in a while I’ll sneak back in for a quick peek, when Steph isn’t home.
Nanoanalpig—I never gave you reason to treat me the way you did when we first ran across each other; you have been a hateful little dickhead toward me since day one, with no reason whatsoever. You are the most hateful little troll I’ve ever met, and you will be the cause of your own demise. When you’re lying on your death bed, whenever that is, I truly hope you will think of this witch whom you crossed for no reason other than your own bigoted hatered—because I will be there ... laughing at you. I hope you enjoy rotting away in your own little private corner of Hell. That is your Karma. So mote it be.
Awwwww
I was starting to enjoy your style of buffoonery.

When you come back for a peek, you should call someone a "pinko." It'll be fun.

So you are hoping that by discrediting old ideas you can dismiss all that inconvenient modern science that so easily disproves those ancient fairy tales you love so much? That's not going to work.
Modern science is under far greater scrutiny that the ancients were. Bad ideas don't last once they can be accurately tested.

I see that you are missing the point, that science taught (and accepted) that insects are borne of rotting meat for nearly 2,000 years.

I think you're intentionally missing the point because you don't wanna think what science may be teaching us today that's just as false as spontaneous generation.

Come back in from left filed before a fly ball hits you in the head.

YOU DON'T HAVE FOSSILS IN METAMORPHIC OR IGNEOUS ROCKS. Unless they get got caught in packets of sediment in the metamorphic, and you won't be getting large ones. They got melted in the igneous.

Sedimentary means previous rocks got ground up so they could become sediment. Understand?

You didn't get molten rock until you had enough to cause the pressure and forces to melt the damned stuff that had been collecting. You think those rocks just attended a convention? The theory is dust and particles. Any larger stuff collected bounced around and created dust. It wasn't until you got enough mass and gravity for the forming process to begin of what you see now. That is the gravity based view of accretion. This stuff works from inside out, but not the center. The core provides the anvil for the hammer of the weight above. Plus you have stirring by the tidal forces of the moon. The barycenter of the earth/moon follows a path in the mantle, roughly 45 degrees average beneath your feet perpendicular to the axis with the latitude varying.

You just really don't know when those "first" rocks first appeared. It is all assuming based upon the final product with no really definite benchmark.

But the dirt came last, and it has been shuffled around bunches of time, up, down, all around, and rolled, blown, and even melted since, that is where you find your fossils.
