Great methods you evolutionist have, Taking God's creation and explaining it with, Yes it looks like intelligence is behind it, Yes it looks designed. Yes it looks orderly, yes it has laws, yes it is fine tuned, but it is not what it seems, it is an illussion. You see it just happened. Just plain dumb luck. No rhyme or reason.

The earth was pretty much one land mass. After the flood people migrated to the plains of Shinar. It is here close to Babylon that the people built the tower of Babel. During this time lived a man called Peleg. It is written concerning Peleg that in his days was the earth divided. This is when the continent (some call it pangea) which was cracked up into the continents during the flood, broke apart and began the continental drift. This breaking up was such a common event known among all people that it received only this note in the bible. The animals that were on the separate land masses were then somewhat stuck on that land mass they were on. That is why the Kangaroo tends only to be in Austrailia and not have been able to migrate to other continents that easily. The continental drift was quite rapid at first and is now much slower.
Sure. But that was a lot longer than 6,000 years ago. If you accept plate tectonics then you must accept the world is older than 6,000 years old. How did the lemurs get to Madagascar? Did they get a plane?

The plates moved very quickly in the past. Socrates even describes the movement of the Americas into the western sea (Atlantic Ocean) as being very quick. See the book Critaeus and Timaeus. So these events were witnessed even by the secular world and recorded. Oh but that is right anything written by someone more than 150 years ago is conside a myth by you and unbelievable.
Socrates discovered America?

I was hoping to get your response to my post the other day. Not sure if you missed it:

It even includes your "finding a lottery ticket every day for a million years" theory.

Thanks in advance.

If Socrates witnessed the movement of the Americas then he discovered the Americas.

Now why would I wnat to see a movie that laughs at Christians, the bible told us that would happen, no news there and that people would deny the creation so they could deny God.

God beat you by thousands of years.

Because it plainly and simply answered a question that you posed to me a few days ago. You asked for an answer. I spent time looking for an answer for you. I guess I was wrong in assuming you would take time out of your busy posting schedule to look at the video. Duly noted.

Thanks for posting that...I'm currently watching #5 in the series. Very entertaining, but it shows me the futility of discussing this with YEC folks. I do it only because I'm always interested in what make people tick. By the way reformed, it is not laughing at Christianity, but just shredding some of the creationist ideas to shreds...Creationism is not Christianity.
