What type of scientific dating discoveries, in fact name them all? I'm reading the book Thousands not Billions. this book presents RECENT scientific dating evidence proving a young earth and refuting billions of years BS. Incidentally this honest scientific research was not funded by the tax payer, the tax payer only ever funds atheist science so tuff luck there theists.
Let's see what there is regarding this book, shall we? Written by a Dr. deYoung, who apparently holds a PhD in physics. Okay, fair enough. Except he apparently hasn't published in any scientific journals, at least nothing I've found, and that makes this book at least somewhat suspect. It seems that in this book, he attempts to show that radiometric dating methods are unreliable. Good for him, but it takes more than a single scientist's conclusions, or even those of a group of like-minded scientists, to overturn something that's considered accepted science. That's why we have peer review in science to begin with.
So why is he presenting his conclusions in a book on sale at Amazon (notably, one directed at religious believers), rather than finding a scientific journal to publish in so that he can have other scientists review his findings? I mean, if he really did manage to refute radiometric dating methods, and had solid evidence to back up his conclusions, then other scientists (including non-creationists) would be able to back up his findings. As it stands, it seems that he's removed that option from the table entirely, and that makes his conclusions more than a little suspect.
By the way, government-funded scientific research is not limited to 'atheist' scientists. The federal government is barred from using religious beliefs as a justification for who gets funding. So you might want to retract that accusation you made.
I you are really interested in scientific fact and not fairy tales, go and buy a copy. It is a balanced presentation and clearly show that the OBSERVED scientific evidence can easily support a young earth "theory" model. By the way I didn't need this book to convince me evolution theory is rubbish, I've known that since I was about 9
If you've 'known' that evolution theory was rubbish since you were nine, that means you are not judging things based on the evidence, but based on what you already believe to be true. That is hardly a way to show that you are reliable when it comes to things like this.
PS I have been a Christian for 25 years, I didn't start reading so called "science texts" until I began coming across the ever growing army of Dawkinite Zealots hell bent on vaporizing men of faith in facts AKA Christians, atheists, ex Christian atheist (the worts of them all) all bellowing that they they have scientific proof bible god doesn't exist. Thats when I began my search for this this so called evidence. It's been oh about 10 years now still not found any but it's great fun taking the mickey of atheists because I hate liars more than murderers and any atheist who claim to have scientific proof but NEVER presents any, is a pernicious perfidious liar in enemy of not only truth but of the eternal destiny of the easily influenced.
So not only were you convinced early on that young-earth creationism (hereafter referred to as YECism) was true, you never even looked at science until your faith was threatened by it.
By the way, while it's true that there's no scientific proof that YHWH doesn't exist, there also isn't any scientific proof that he exists in the first place. And that is far more detrimental to your position than any amount of "atheist zealots".
Know this all you atheists mocking God and mocking believers in the book of books, you are having fun thinking of us fools, thinking you are very clever, I wonder if you actually hate us as much as we truly detest you from the very deepest recesses of our souls. Oh yes we have compassion and concern for your eternal destiny, but it's past that, well past that, it's war for the souls of men. I take that very seriously indeed. And I am going to wound maim and shame as many of you as I can.
*shakes head* This is really, really sad, especially coming from a Christian. It makes you into a hypocrite, not to mention a liar, which you say you loathe even more than murder. Because you quite simply cannot have compassion and concern for someone's eternal destiny and at the same time seek to (figuratively, I hope) wound, maim, and shame people who disagree with you. All I can say is that you must really think of evolutionary science as a major threat to your beliefs to react with such hostility.
ooooooh look a bunch of athiests with their knickers n a twist. Love IT!
So, lemme guess, you've decided to start trolling for attention now.
Then please stop living and existing in God's creation.....LOL
Do you actually think replies like this through, or are they the equivalent of one-liners for you?
Ive read most of the book, they are very fair in their summations and address all such "scrutiny", if you want to rely on a 5 second google eduction, be my guest, now, where is all your "scientific evidence for the billions of year model.......yes your evidence that has held up under scrutiny and has now been agreed upon as fact, I'm waiting??????
One scientist's book, no matter how much you agree with it, does not overturn anything. Like it or not, radiometric dating still stands quite firmly as scientific evidence for an ancient Earth, despite Dr. deYoung's claims that it does not.
Yes I'm a Poe Troll on Patrol but I'm not on the payroll. LOL. Funny the minute someone isn't a died in the wool atheist nazi, they are troll, so if in calling me a Poe or a troll because I disagree with all that is atheism and all that is evolution theory, then call me whatever you like, or is this a sycophants only site? Shall I leave because I think you all full of shite? Shall I leave because I cam here even knowing that already?? Does that make me a troll? If so I'm happy to beetle off.
Actually, no, there are and have been plenty of Christians who came to this site and were capable of civil, non-trolling conduct. You know the old saying about how you attract flies?
Oh the "your momma" straw man insult invented by Maximilien Robespierre, uttered just prior to the removal of his head by guillotine in 1794.
Your momma dresses you funny honey. And I'm yo daddy.
PP, it isn't really worth trying to trade insults with him. He's undoubtedly had lots and lots of practice at it.
I'll take that as a warm welcome to continue then. I'm an outlier because I got my 10,000 hours in quicker than you. You sir, are going down. I thank God I never had a girl friend like you by the way. My girl friends where all a lot of fun.
I sense that someone might be taking a trip to the Emergency Room sub-board soon.
I will consider reading your 5 second google search link AFTER you have read the book. Or you can go and crumble a few rocks and play the "Guess their Age" game with your mates?
Speaking for myself, I have no interest in subsidizing yet another YECist's attempt to overturn radiometric dating (since you have to buy the book to read it) when their arguments don't even hold up to scrutiny from other Christians.
Ummm, I don't live in here like you rock scum. LOL
All I've seen from you so far are loudmouthed attempts to claim that a single book overturns the entire field of radiometric dating, and hamfisted attempts to get the better of other posters. I certainly hope that you're capable of more than that.
LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL Yep you got it one, I've joined an atheist website to drive people from Christ. HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
When your conduct is atrocious, it reflects on what you claim to represent.
Also, it looks more like you've joined an atheist website to toss out one-line insults to egg people on.
Hey doctor phil, take a chill pill, nah, let it all out let the hate come to the surface, all the nasty little bitter and twisted sarcasm. a crow bar in the head will do that to a guy,
Sounds like you're more interested in trying to provoke strong reactions than anything. Honestly, it's quite sad. When I saw this topic, I was hoping that we'd get another sensible Christian who could argue intelligently about YECism. Instead, we get one who demands that people read a certain specific book and who passes the time by provoking other members.
No you must be really really dumb.
I'm going to assume you meant this in the sense of, "you disagree with me thus you must be stupid", because otherwise it makes no sense to declare that he must be really really dumb.
Hey folks it's all y'all against me - bring it biatches! One on one is no fun with you lot any way too easy.
Yes, I definitely see an ER visit in your future. Note that this isn't a reference to a hospital's emergency room, so you can't use this as an excuse to claim that I'm 'threatening' you.
Man you whack jobs really have got a thing for the bible narrative, what's with that??????
I kind of thought you were the one who thought the Bible narrative was true. You know, since it's the only thing that actually supports your YECist view.
You atheists are so completely munted in the skull that you actually believe some one like me has the power to drive some one from Christ? Jesus Give me strength. I can only imagine you say things like that coz you think it's insulting or hurtful) it isn't, but you can't really be that dumb.
Of course you do - all it took was one apple to overturn YHWH's whole plan, apparently. Against folly and ignorance, even a god strives in vain.
I'm not a Christian I'm a high satanist priest, I know my bible better than all Christians, Satan knows the scriptures well, you atheists are gonna burn the best. I expect admin to be rid of me shortly clearly you balls bags haven't got what it takes to play with the big boys of hate! Pussies.
So you are just trolling. Glad to see you admitted it. I guess honesty does count for something. Though, apparently not all that much in your case.
