    Any theory that is not a fact is in essence an educated guess. This does not make it a bad thing and some are indeed eventually found to be facts. In this case though, it is not, yet! Some day it may be, but not today.

    Evidence is what it is. Some is found to be factual some is not. End of story.

    Yes, I know what Creationism is. I was pointing out what Blackdog said to you that you seemed to have missed.
    my apologies. i meant that as a teacher, you should know better than to teach religion in school. and i didn't miss anything, the point here is that some creationsists, you? believe the earth is only 6000 years old. human years. dig believes that, and yet we do have proof that it is far, far, older. science, you have to teach actual science in school, not bible created suppositions. you also have to realize that creationsists who are "scientists" have an agenda.

    None. As if this has anything at all to do with anything I have said?

    Again, not true. Observing and drawing conclusions based on those observations, then testing those conclusions is not "guessing". Yes, as new evidence comes out, we adjust and reject theories and create new ones, but they are much more than guesses.

    The same thing can easily be said about evolutionists and the fact that we have proof that the world is far, far younger than billions of years.

    Nothing in this discussion that I have said. Would you PLEASE go back and read my thoughts on the subject. Stop assuming.

    The Big Bang theory is the one with the most evidence. Yet there are others, most have been debunked by this point. However, these were introduced in science courses in High School. Maybe my high school was different, or it was the fact that I had taken 2 years of each science (Chemistry, Biology, and Physics) in high school. Furthermore, there are plenty of opprotunities to learn on your own (do a little research) and in University if you take science courses you are more apt to find the various explainations for the beginning of the Universe. But as I stated, the Big Bang Theory is the one thus far with the most amount of evidence for it.

    All we have in tracing the majority of species on this planet is fossils. Most fossils have no DNA and most modern animal types to the tune of 90% are missing huge swaths of even a single bone. In some cases an entire species is a few pieces of bone. So we have nothing to discuss here, you are indeed wrong in this instance.

    You keep claiming to have proof of creationism and how old the earth is, but you haven't provided anything more than links to sites that are indeed bias. In fact, you didn't even provide a direct link to where the proof (in form of research, studies, evidence) is exactly within those links. You haven't even given what that proof is.

    Evolution has plenty of proof that can be pointed directly to and scientific research to back it up. The exact method of how evolution works certainly has flaws in the current theories, however, they still have a lot of supporting evidence.

    So again, where is your scientific proof of a young earth or of creationism rather than evolution? What exactly does it entail?
