1.Supposedly, modern man gradually evolved from cave men. However, the search for fossil evidence to prove this theory has only proven to be a miserable failure! The most that has been found of any of the stages of the development of man is a few pieces of bone here and there. An entire skeleton, or anything even remotely close to one, has never been found, even though man has supposedly been inhabiting earth for millions of years. You would think there would be countless numbers of human skeletons.


Huh?

The words of St. Augustine in the year 408:
It not infrequently happens that something about the earth, about the sky, about other elements of this world, about the motion and rotation or even the magnitude and distances of the stars, about definite eclipses of the sun and moon, about the passage of years and seasons, about the nature of animals, of fruits, of stones, and of other such things, may be known with the greatest certainty by reasoning or by experience, even by one who is not a Christian. It is too disgraceful and ruinous, though, and greatly to be avoided, that he [the non-Christian] should hear a Christian speaking so idiotically on these matters, and as if in accord with Christian writings, that he might say that he could scarcely keep from laughing when he saw how totally in error they are. In view of this and in keeping it in mind constantly while dealing with the book of Genesis, I have, insofar as I was able, explained in detail and set forth for consideration the meanings of obscure passages, taking care not to affirm rashly some one meaning to the prejudice of another and perhaps better explanation.

What are you talking about? I haven't interpretated it in any way.

But the fact remains that other Christians don't accept a young earth and do accept evolution.  So their interpretation of the bible is different from yours.

he Bible says the earth was created in 6 days. A day is a day.

And the bible says the earth is unmoving, and the sun revolves around the earth, and...ooops!  Where's your faith in the bible when it makes clearly false claims?  Your only choice is to re-interpret the bible to conform to modern scientific facts.  So as we can plainly see, the bible is NOT inerrant.

That doesn't leave room for evolution.

That's too bad for the bible since evolution is a fact.  Guess your going to have to reinterpret your superstitions again or just deny reality, the choice is yours.

And when the dates are added up in the Bible, it shows that the world can't be older than 10,000 years.

I thought some creationists say 6,000 years...
Oh well, just chalk it up to silly superstition because ALL evidence found to date shows that the earth is roughly 4.6 billion years old and there is no evidence for a young earth.

I'm not a scientific well of knowledge for evidence on a young earth. I don't know all the details and I haven't done an extravagant amount of research on it. I do know, however, that there is SOME evidence that points towards a young earth.

As we showed you, there is no real evidence for a young earth.  There is only creationists trying to twist actual scientific data to make it look like evidence for a young earth.  As I said before, ALL evidence found to data supports a 4.6 billion year old earth.  You can't back up your claim for a young earth with anything more than primitive superstitions, so the only recourse you have is to say you believe in a young earth based on faith and nothing more.

A.First, let me show you some of the fallacies associated with evolution.
1.Supposedly, the world began with the Big Bang around 12 to 15 billion years ago. It was created from a lone cosmic egg which had been sitting around for eons in an empty universe. After it happened to blow up, the universe became increasingly complex. But wait. Does order ever come out of an explosion? If you throw a stick of dynamite at a pile of wood, is it going to look more like a house? Some materialists protest that given enough energy, order will come about. But how many lightning bolts does it take to bring a dead man to life? An astronomer commented about the puzzling precision of the universe in National Geographic: “To get a universe that has expanded as long as ours supposedly has without collapsing or having its matter coast away would have required extraordinary fine tuning. A Chicago physicist calculated that the odds of achieving that kind of precise expansion… would be the same as throwing an imaginary dart across the most distant quasar and hitting a bull’s eye one millimeter in diameter.”


Let's do a thought experiment.  Suppose you mix hydrogen gas and oxygen gas, and supply a spark.  You get an explosion right?  And a cloud of water vapor.  Now cool the water vapor and form a snowflake.

Is anything in this thought experiment impossible?

Does a snowflake have more order than a cloud of gas?

Well, you have made a number of false claims.  When these have been pointed out to you, you have ignored the refutations.  I can understand getting tired of being wrong, but if you make the claims either defend them or admit you were wrong.

Do you deny creation and arrogantly declare yourself to be the arbiter of truth.
