Radiometric dating. Look it up, it's based on fact, not fiction.

So are we making a mistake no executing children for being disobedient? Leviticus commands such. Did you execute your disobedient children? No? Hmmmm.

Come on. First I think your arguments are also arguments in favor of a name change for you.

You can find many sources of information on the internet written by people with no agenda in favor of a MUCH older earth. You just choose to ignore those. There are also youtube videos if you prefer those.

Delivered to you by a group of humans as they see fit. Some books make the bible others don't because there is a lack of consistency. Which of the stories were right? Humans had to decide.

The Big Bang surmises that the matter came from nothing. This is a contradiction of basic scientific principles. Look at the fact that many planets revolve in different directions, something that contradicts what you'd expect from a "Big Bang". The moon is also retreating from the Earth, little by little, every year. If the Earth is 4.6 billion years old, the location of the moon would have to be clear through the Earth to the other side (meaning that it would have been touching the Earth at some point).

Evolution takes natural selection, something actually seen, and claims that through natural selection playing out a survival of the fittest, species changed over time. The problem with that viewpoint is that is argues that mutations, something that is overwhelmingly disadvantageous to a species, was advantageous to such an extent that it allowed thousands of beneficial mutations, most occurring at the same time (for it would take such happening to allow for many traits to be useful). Statisticians have shown that the likelihood of this occurring is at such an infinitely small number.

Evolution also makes use of the millions of years argument to claim that species changed over time to become new species. The problem with this is that one cannot truthfully claim the Earth to be millions of years old because the standards by which one uses to claim such, geo-column (layers of Earth), have huge discrepancies. This is because layers are not deposited at a universal rate, nor are the fossils found in such layers necessarily very old, relative to what is being claimed. Fossilization, under the right conditions, can occur in a time frame less than one hundred years.

Therefore,
1) Problems with age of fossilization
2) Problems with rate of deposition

=

No truly known scientific age


Radiometric Dating has problems because it falsely sets a premise based on uniformity of magnetism, instead ignoring that magnetism is decreasing over time.

View the following page and note the problems with radiometric dating. This method produces various ages for the same physical structure/object, contrary to known historical age. Look at Mt. Kilauea. View the age of the same object when different dating techniques are used. Only carbon dating is somewhat reliable, and it can only measure an object in the thousands of years.

He's a legislator for christ's sake. Of course, he is forcing his viewpoints on us. He's either pandering or a nut case or both.

The county is now constructing an eight-foot wide multi-use trail along Dallas Highway in west Cobb. “That’s Agenda 21,” Byrne said. “Bicycles and pedestrian traffic as an alternative form of transportation to the automobile.”
Now, the problem is being tackled at the state level. Later this week legislators will be attending a 4 hour seminar at the state capitol on how to root out the hidden socialist agenda in nice-sounding terms like "smart growth," "sustainable development", and "Public Private Partnerships," as well as in organizations like the ARC, Tax Allocation Districts and CIDs.



Keep in mind, Bill Byrne is the same bigoted homophobic who cost my county millions in potential Olympic dollars back in the mid 1990's with his "queers not welcome in Cobb" mantra that ended up costing us Olympic venues and making us the laughing stock of the world.

and to think this psychopath actually wanted his job back. I'm glad we did our part to tell him to go shove it, or he would have taken this county back in time about 40 years. What a bafoon and moron, typical good old "family values" nazi.

No, I'm not trolling. I'm simply telling you what I believe. Every Bible translation that I've seen has the same meaning, just in a different format.

People do interpret some scriptures differently. Some scripture sometimes appears a bit more vague than most scripture, but, by and large, there's a general meaning behind it.



He does show himself and His might works. Just look at this planet, the solar system, the galaxy and the universe. That's God. That's Him showing His Works. I realize that you're looking for a "God speaking to you in an audio voice", but that doesn't mean that He's cruel.

My dad had a "near"-death experience. The afterlife is real. God is real. Trust God with your life.
What God is that? The same one you pray to? No thanks buddy. I'll accept my fate and burn for it. I can't see subscribing to a belief system based on folklore, hate and intolerance. I'll take my chances.

as I said, whatever helps you sleep at night.
