Of course, it makes perfect sense when you let your perspective be shaped by facts and observation instead of the other way around.

You know what kind of rock Mt Everest is made up of? Marine limestone, riddled with shallow water fossils.

Another reason why the "6,000 year old Earth" thing has always puzzled me...

"If we were to lose a lot of ice from Antarctica then we're going to see a dramatic change in sea level all around the planet."

Even a few metres of sea level rise would inundate "large portions of the habitable land around coasts of many major countries and low-lying regions," he added.


That's ok, I can handle Harrisburg being beachfront property.

not the best map but you can clearly see that Antarctica is at or at least very near the south pole even 65 Ma.

I though it was god who put the fossils there to test our faith. Or something.

I actually had one person tell me that those fossils were from the old testament flood. I just blinked a couple times and made my exit.

These old-testament literalists are the same people who claim that God is a jealous, angry autocrat who is anything but all-benevolent, and who must be worshiped simply because he has all the power.

The same people whose greatest scholars claim that the solution to the "problem of evil" is simply that "when God does it, it's not evil."

And you're puzzled by their reasoning?

My wife's belief says that the Flood exerted a lot of pressure on the the Earth's crust, forcing land what was at or below sea-level to be forced upwards.

Scary thing is, that was used at the end of the movie 2012. so I don't know how possible it would be for that to happen.

The animals were washed up there by the flood and then fast fossilized.

Not surprising. There were no pirates back then, so the temperatures would have been through the roof.

Anyone ever studied the effect of mass increase on plate tectonics? I was rather shocked to see the idea in a non-religious movie, but I can't find anything on the internet not bible-related.

A movie about the world ending due to Mayan prophecies isn't religious?

Ned Stark: A movie about the world ending due to Mayan prophecies isn't religious?


I thought it was astronomical, not theological....


Anyways found this. That's a hell of a lot of match, but while a continent could theoretically rise due to water pressure, it would only be about 1000 ft and would take longer than the 1 year Young-Earth Creationists say happened.

If you're going to take a book written over multiple generational literally, you need to be called a moron. We can't even get through one election cycle without idiots trying to rewrite history to their benefit. You think a book "from God", the most important book in the world at the time, was able to?

That said, one think I would love to see is someone going through the "good book" tying any allegory they can in there with current scientific knowledge. Dust to dust sounds an awful lot like how we know we're made of star stuff now. Who ever said 6 days and nights on God time is the same as on earth?

I don't expect it to be 100% serious, but if little green men did come down from the heavens and were trying to explain quantum mechanics and the nature of the universe to sheep herders, wouldn't allusion and allegory be the best bet? Does the bible line up well in that notion?

Yeah, cause a handful of b-rate space bugs and some honor-seeking most dangerous game hunters are definitely the worst thing you could find in a strange ancient temple buried in the ice.
