Save crashing another thread, figured I'd start this one up as a sub-discussion. From here: http://forums.filefront.com/pub/419317-its-official-what-killed-dinosaurs.html we've the following quotes between myself and NiteStryker:

NiteStryker;5260312That was a long freaking time ago. Suprised we havent been hit with anything like that again. And if that wiped out 90 % of life, that almost proves evolution, because humans didnt exist then (obviously), and only the simpler organisms would have survived, and then leveled up again.
Aerilon;5260414You would believe this, unless you were part of a group (I forget their name) who believe the Earth has only been around for a mere 5000 (I think) years, and that both Dinosaurs and People co-existed.
NiteStryker;52604215,000 years? Wow. Thats not even a geological blink of the eye compared to the proven age of the Earth.
Aerilon;5260438I'm not sure on the number of years, but I know its very few compared to the billion number of years the planet has actually been around. There is even a musieum in the US that is dedicated to this really wild theory, can't for the life of me remember what its called now though, will do some hunting, and look it up.

See: - Answers in Genesis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - Creation Museum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - Creation Museum - Creation, Evolution, Science, Dinosaurs, Family, Christian Worldview | Creation Museum In short, these people, and the museum believe that the Earth has only been around for a mere 6000 years, and that the human species co-existed with Dinosaurs, early Mammals, and pretty much every other species that we know about to this day. In addition (according to this group), Dinosaurs (probably all species) attended the gathering of Noah's Arc. These people reject modern science in favor of a worldview which sees the universe, the Earth and life originating about 6,000 years ago. How can such a naive, stupid, dull, illogical group of people even exist? The museum (in its first 6 months) had a rough total of 300,000 visitors. That means, there are at least 300,000 dimwits occupying this planet.

lol

That's all I can say to these people. And I've been a Christian my entire life.

If you take the Bible this literally, you are a retard (say it like Alan from The Hangover for full effect).

I've always wondered about the engineering that would allow a single boat to carry every single creature living on the Earth today, plus all the dinosaurs as well as (presumably) the ones that became extinct in the Paleogene and Neogene periods. I'm not sure even today's superliners would be capable of such a feat, let alone a ship made of something so flimsy and susceptible to decay as wood.

There is actually a pretty good theory behind this. For such, we should look to Scientologist. Chances are, it wasn't your typical arc, but was in fact a giant city sized spaceship from the planet Krypton.

Not true. I'd go just for the laugh. I suspect the worth behind visiting such a place would similar to that of a fun house in a carnival.

Sadly, it's not all laughs. As the truth is, there are people who hold dear these ridiculous beliefs, with the abiding assurance that the end justifies the means. For instance, a museum canonizing mass ignorance.

The harm done by ordinary criminals, thieves and murders, is negligible in comparison to the agony inflicted upon the masses by professional do-gooders masquerading as servants of a god.

No, a good number of those 300,000 probably went for lulz.

A rah-tard.

[QUOTE=Links above] Answers in Genesis believes that all stars and planetary bodies, including the Earth, were created around 6,000 years ago.[29] They reject the scientific theories of cosmology.

A young universe is challenged by the distant starlight problem, which presents the dilemma of how light from objects millions or billions of light years away could be observed in a young universe. Some creationists have attempted to answer this with explanations involving God creating light en-route, or by claiming that the speed of light was faster in the past

LOL. Willful stupidity. Gotta love it. Why are these people never killed in a car crash?

Hmm. Interesting way of thinking about it, i'd never considered it this way.

Wood is actually very far from flimsy, especially hardwoods used in ship construction like Oak. As for "susceptible to decay", pay a visit to HMS Victory (laid down in 1765) some day, or one of the other ships surviving from the Napoleonic wars.

The effective upper size limit for a purely wooden ship is around the size of a first rate because of technical limitations (hogging etc) However, given my knowledge of ship building methods i'm sceptical that a ship of that scale could have been produced ? thousand years ago.

Even if it could, I don't think you could fit the contents of London zoo aboard a ship of the scale of Victory, let alone two of every species.

We had quite a few creationists arguing that evolution doesn't exist in this forum. There were even a few of the type that believe that Earth is only 6000 years old because if you start at zero and go back using the time-line described in the Bible that's where you end up.

There was a relatively long thread about it (the hoax of evolution or something similar) which was eventually closed. I think it is interesting to see such discussions as it becomes obvious how difficult it can be to explain something that seems so very simple and how much of an effect "faith" can have on people.

Anyway, please avoid insulting creationists. There may still be some here and they should be allowed to voice their opinion without being insulted. Even though young-earth creationists are really asking for it, in my opinion.
