wippit: Ok, that dictionary.com definition turns me off of the term. I renounce my creationism.I'm... wippit.
dittybopper: Wasn't it also a British Invasion band? Herman's Hermeneutics?
Pochas: JinxofSpades: Not entirely the same thing, but isn't the question also answered by the speed of light?I'm no scientist, but if we know the speed of light, and we know that most stars are so far away that it takes a long time for their light to reach us (millions of years,) then how can the universe be 6000-10000 years old?Or is the argument only about the age of the Earth itself, with the assumption that universe itself is still a zillion years old?Creationists will just say God used magic to make the light be here at Earth before it should have been.
SlothB77: Marco Rubio doesn't know the earth is 4.54 billion years old.That means that Obama is automatically president for life and Marco Rubio becomes the new security manager for the US Embassy in Benghazi.
wippit: There is nothing wrong with trying to incorporate outside references to try to get your point across. You teach people using the methods those people will understand. Who cares that they have to see it through the lens of the Bible, as long as they understand the material?
wippit: ... and Muslims believe in the Big Bang.
SlothB77: 4.54 billion-year-old earthI memorized this for science class. Now, more than 20 years removed from when I learned it, i forgot the exact number. That disqualifies me from being a senator? I have to go back and memorize everything from 8th grade science again now?
rev. dave: Anything not in the range of 4.3 billion years is a wrong answer. Stop opposing science you morons.

eraser8: enry: Then again, I don't have a hard time separating my beliefs (God exists, Jesus rose from the dead, etc.) from what I know (the Earth is 4.5 billion years old, evolution is real, etc.). Belief for me recognizes there's little to no substantial proof.If it's your belief that "God exists, Jesus rose from the dead," why do you believe it?This is a serious question, by the way. I'm not out to argue with you about your beliefs. I'm just curious as to why you hold them.
