Creationism is a mental illness (Page 19)
purification: Kiddo, the hidden meaning for asking who are you is just being politEly telling you... who are you to judge?
purification: Have fun kiddo... I am out of this silly forum meant for people with four corners brain.
Aura: Oh you want the deep answer?
I am human. Judging is my second nature. I do it day by day, sometimes minute by minute. I judge within seconds, often harshly and overwhelmingly I judge people wanting--with or without good reason.
Aura: That does depend on what you were looking to get out of it.
I consider these forums character studies.
Geoff: Actually I think I have a spectrum of anti-intellectualism, based on a complex algorithm incorporating factors such as how bloody stupid it is and how dangerous it is to society.

fustler: I would like to present the Christian theory on the 6,000 years old Earth objectively. I am not religious, but I was raised in a Christian household. I am a deist... a fence sitter if you like. This is the gist of it as I understand it.
Adam is the best example of how to explain a 6,000 years old Earth. According to Genesis, God created man. At the end of that day, Adam was one day old, yet he was an adult by all appearances. God in His infinite wisdom (far beyond the kin of we mere mortals) decided that it would be best to place Adam on an Earth aged roughly 4 billion years. The planet was only days old, but by all appearances, much older. In this way, the Christian can agree with every single shred of scientific data indicating 4 billion, yet still insist on 6,000.
That's how I understood it. It's a nice side step if you ask me. However, I won't defend it as it's not my chicken to f**k. Be well, and cognizant.
kittybobo34: I am sure the creationists could come up with all sorts of scientific evidence to back that up too.
kittybobo34: Fustler: Your creationist concept doesn't include human remains that are older than 6000. nor does it allow for fossil evidence of all the early hominids, like Neanderthal, homo erectus, austrolopithicus etc.. So back to the drawing board, and make a happy story that fits the facts and allows a magic guy in the sky.
ghostgeek: You cannot use fossil evidence to prove to creationists that the earth is far older than six thousand years. God could have put those fossils in situ when he created this world.
