Actually, Lucas, you said that pretty well.
No one who's entire view of life is COMPLETELY DEPENDENT on the Earth being 10k years old or less is EVER going to see radiometric dating, or the fact that it takes 25,000 years for an object 25,000 light years away to become visible to us, as any kind of proof that they are wrong. It's really hard to hear when your head is planted in the sand.
Thanks, and yes...the ostrich approach doesn't work.
no it doesn't.
ell your head is planted in the sand, Ock
No, your head is, KFC
No your head is, Ock.
No, yours is Lula
Just wanted to get those posts out of the way. Perhaps I should have added some nyaa nyaas to it. Oh well, nobody is perfect.
You're prophetic Ock,haha.
Here's what I know. Scripture cannot err, whether in matters spiritual, physical, soteriological or historical. Science on the other hand, operates with one devestating handicap....as I just pointed out, it's history is riddled with the overturning of one theory after another; with one popular belief after another, some of which were thought to be with "data ....that proves".
So you're telling me that scripture, written by falliabl man, through his falliable perception - the same man mind you that can be falliable with science - who is known to have sinned, translated/transcribed (and doing both is difficult) be corrupted, be biased/slanted/subjective, assinine, et al.....is perfect?
Yup, you're right, scripture is perfect. No way in the world that it could anyother ways. Lets play ostrich.
No matter how you slice and dice it, radiometric dating techniques really don't mean that much. The fact is there is STILL no objective radiological proof that the earth was any of these ages old....certainly not 4.5 billion years old. The new "Age" of the earth is given to fit the most current stellar evolution theory that is in vogue...and alas! taught to unwary school children as "fact". Oh my....I wish it weren't so.
Lula, if you're so sure that there is no proof - then give us your theory. Because it sounds like you're saying that just because the ages have gotten larger (oddly enough, NOT smaller)...that that means they're wrong or catchy.
