    Don't bother, JB posts like he's committing a drive by, all you hear is gunfire and the roar of an engine as he speeds off.

    All of that in the video is taken out of context and presents a half truth that only intends to make fun of religion.

    I know the Earth is 4.5 billion years old, but (modern) man has only been around for about 10-15 thousand years.

    I believe in evolution, for animals, not humans.

    All the rest can be characterized as a lie by omission.

    You're off by a factor of around 20.
    What biological difference exists between humans and what you classify animals that would allow for evolution in one case and not in the other?
    Could you perhaps expand on this a bit?

    There it is. Plain and simple. This should be a great thread.

    Yeah, it is simple. Although I believe in many of the statements (dates, etc.) given (although I also believe that the progressions are far too astronomically improbable if not impossible to happen without intelligent guidance), I was kind of embarassed for athiests by that video.

    Only took him 20 minutes to respond, looks like you owe him an apology for the BS charge at least.

    Yep, those superficial arguments have been debunked.

    Hmm, seems in this case, you are correct.

    My apologies to JB.

    The arguments were facile and non-sensical, arguing against caricatures, and in many cases wrong.

    Take the first claim, which pitted Carbon-dating against radiometric dating. Carbon-dating IS a form of radiometric dating.

    Many of their quotes were mere appeals to authority, and the comebacks were pure assertion (claim 2, for instance).

    I could go on, but I don't need to waste my time.

    In poking fun at the anti-evolutionists, they did no better. There are far better arguments for evolutionary theories (although nothing I would term a proof) that I've seen. This was simplistic populist nonsense.

    Atheists constantly critique creationinsts blind faith on God. Yet they equally blindly believe in Carbon dating as the ultimate truth!:rofl:

    Try radiometric dating. Rib woman and talking snakes makes more sense to you, I take it?

    Try researching first before posting. Carbon dating IS a type of radiometric dating.:tongueout:
