Uh, at this point I think it is needless to explain carbon dating, fossils, layers and other such things to you - ALL base don "math" and all as provable as things can be.

For you to say that this - side by side - with ANY guess spewed out by MEN who wanted power, women and gold...(that's what religion basically is/was) is interesting...to say the least.

The Lord made those giant craters in the Yucatan 6,000 years ago? On which day of the week....???

What is FACT is that we are learning more and more detail. What is not fact is that superstition or guesses have anything at all to do the formation of the modern earth and the life upon it.

You may be all ears. That's a problem. One needs to use eyes and then process it in the mind.

All jokes aside - are there honestly still people who believe the earth was made in a week a few thousand years ago? I ask for real.....I mean REALLY? I'm not asking if someone chooses to believe something under peer pressure or to support some other worldview...but whether they truly believe it?

BTW, they have found most every missing link and are regularly finding more of them. Turns out human and pre-human remains don't easily last for 400,000+ years....and even a skeptic can understand. So they are not piled up everywhere...and there were do relatively few (not millions or billions like Hermit Crab type fossils), that they are not just out there sticking out from a cliff.

Here are most pre-humans dating back 2.5 million years - right up to real humans (300K years approx)...

I know, I know - if we call the dumb hicks out for being dumb hicks, they get pouty and stubborn and double down on the dumb-hickery just to teach us a lesson.

But in the name of all that's holy and unholy, Arizona, could you try to not embrace the stereotype? I've been to Phoenix, you have what looks like a fairly advanced civilization, what is with this?
We went through this in KS and some creationists packed a comittee and tried to get creationism implemented but were quickly stripped of all power and no changes were made.

This however did not stop all the ignorant commentary, late night jokes etc. as if we were actually teaching this in our schools.

So, maybe you could not try to apply the stereotype in the first place and not try to label an entire state over something like this?

Students would love creationism curriculum. Every answer would be God did it. Boom. A+

And if I'm not mistaken, you believe that evolution stops at the neck.

Hogwash for the gullible.

Read your bible...The god you believe in is a genocidal thug.
