    Watching X-Factor slink away from his first post in this thread is slightly satisfying. He lied about Dr. Edwin Conklin's position as an 'evolutionist'. He tried really hard to attribute the statements of others to my posts. Then he couldn't answer what his quote had to do with the issue. Then he got school on just which Christians accepted evolution. Then mbig called him out for engaging in further dishonest and trying to get people to insult his view. You gotta love just how his arguments have been bludgeoned to death but I'm not one to really enjoy jumping on people who don't know their stuff. So I'll bid you all adieu and observe as some of you demolishing X's uninformed statements.

    I think we can all say that if you are alive today and believe any of the following ancient myths, then you are stupid:

    1. At night the earth is covered in a giant black cloak, that cloak is surrounded by an immense white light, and the stars are tiny holes in that cloak.

    2. The land floats upon endless seas of water.

    3. If one digs far enough into the earth, they will eventually enter into Hades, the land of the dead.

    4. The large fossils occasionally uncovered are the bones of an ancient race of dragons.

    There are all sorts of myths that the ancients had about the world that we would call anyone that held such beliefs today as either crazy or remarkably ignorant and gullible.

    However, if you believe the following is the literal story of the creation of man:

    This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, when the Lord God made the earth and the heavens. 5 Now no shrub had yet appeared on the earth[a] and no plant had yet sprung up, for the Lord God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no one to work the ground, 6 but streams[b] came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground. 7 Then the Lord God formed a man[c] from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.

    No one is to consider you crazy, ignorant or stupid. Not only that, but in science classes they should "teach the controversy" because while all of modern science accepts evolution, you don't, and you are smarter than all those stupid scientists. Moreover, when you are challenged as to the shear absurdity of your beliefs, you then get all indignant and claim that all of Christianity is being attacked, when in fact, its but a minority of Christians worldwide that even share your views.

    I like how he is quoting me in his signature obviously without realizing the a majority of people would agree with my statement he is quoting.

    He is dishonestly conflating believing in a creator and being a creationist. Given the definition of creationist and the wide standards for what constitutes a creator, that's just laughable. The fact that he thinks evolution and a creator were contradictory and then got completely destroyed when he tried to claim most Christians were creationists-a-la-evangelicals just made me realize how little he knows about this topic. Then again... what else can we expect from someone who tried to pass off a devout Christian scientist as an evolutionist?

    I've slunk away from it? Lol. Since I've posted it, I've gotten various responses to it. First, mbig was all he didn't really say it. Then it became, ok, he said it but it's out of context. Then; ok he said it and he meant it but he's not credible because he was a devout Christian Scientist who lived a long time ago and he's not really an evolutionist anyway. I believe we're curently at he said it, he mean it, he's actually probably correct about the odds but space is so vast that we are that one in many trillion chances where life came from nothing living.

    I'm just waiting so see what's next.

    2. The use of the word "essentially" prior to the quoted passage was to indicate that said passage was not an exact quote, but was my view of the basic essense of what the arguments against criticism of YEC is.

    In the times I've had discussions about, or read discussion of, YEC that's generally been the essense of the arguments. That either things like fossils and carbon dating are smiply conspiracies or fraudulent things concocted by the scientific community to discredit god and are fraudulent...or that those type of things are simply WRONG, with the only evidence offered as to WHY they're "wrong" is because it doesn't match up with what the bible says.

    Irrelevant.

    Then it became, ok, he said it but it's out of context. Then; ok he said it and he meant it but he's not credible because he was a devout Christian Scientist who lived a long time ago and he's not really an evolutionist anyway.
    Conflating the different responses you got into one? Classy. More dishonesty from you.

    I believe we're curently at he said it, he mean it, he's actually probably correct about the odds but space is so vast that we are that one in many trillion chances where life came from nothing living.

    I'm just waiting so see what's next.
    It's funny how you think trying to pass off different responses as coming from a single source and addressing none of them makes your spineless avoidance of the commentaries any less obvious.
