    Is YEC science? Is is even really a theory?

    Who are these brilliant PhD-level scientists, what is their evidence for creationism, and which phenomena can they explain within the creationist view?

    Spurgeon Preached Old Earth Creationism

    First, if the whole Earth was flooded, there would be no exposed land masses to be eroded, therefore there would be very little if any erosion, and therefore there would be very little sedimentation. The mere fact that there are thick deposits of sedimentary rock shows that there were exposed...

    Is YEC science? Is is even really a theory?

    This is an interesting hypothesis. However, it is a modification of the giant impact hypothesis, in which two satellites rather than one formed out of the ejecta from the impact and the two coalesced tens of millions of years later; it is not a radically new hypothesis. Also, the paper was...

    Is YEC science? Is is even really a theory?

    There have been refinements to and variant forms of the giant impact hypothesis, but there have been no radically different hypotheses.

    Is YEC science? Is is even really a theory?

    I think that I have told you at least seven (and perhaps ten) times that the favoured hypothesis for the last 40 years is that the Moon was formed from the material ejected by a collision between the Earth and a Mars-sized planet. The pre-Apollo hypotheses (that the Moon was formed by rotational...

    Literal Genesis is incoherent.

    This person appears to be.

    A chalange to belivers in Evolution

    The first edition of 'The Origin of Species' was published in November 1859, so Faraday's death was only eight years later.

    what is the evidence that universe is 13.7B years old?

    The observations on which the 13.7-billion-year age of the universe is based were obtained by the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe, which was launched in 2001 and continued its observations until 2010. The first paper based on these observations that gave an age for the universe is by D.N...

    Migratory birds in North America are shrinking as their wings get bigger. Climate change is to blame

    Evolution is caused by environmental changes. The cause of these environmental changes (human or other) is not important.

    Migratory birds in North America are shrinking as their wings get bigger. Climate change is to blame

    1). If change according to genetic variation is not evolution, what is it? 2). If evolution is not change according to genetic variation, how would you define evolution?

    what is the evidence that universe is 13.7B years old?

    Thank-you for your reply. In answer to your two questions: 1) The prediction of the microwave background radiation comes from the fact that according to the Big Bang cosmology the universe has expanded and cooled from a high-density and high-temperature state of an opaque incandescent plasma...

    My Raisin Bread Challenge

    This looks like a description (or perhaps a prophecy) of young earth creationists.

    Myopia in science, like myopia in humans, can be corrected by the use of properly shaped lenses, for example in telescopes and microscopes.

    What Year Did Evolution Start?

    For a moment I thought that A&E meant Accident and Emergency, before I realised that you actually meant Adam and Eve.

    what is the evidence that universe is 13.7B years old?

    The Big Bang model (in its Lambda+Cold Dark Matter form) is promoted because it explains the observed facts of astronomy and cosmology, and because it explains them better than any other cosmological hypothesis. If you know of 'an obvious and serious flaw' in the model, you should write a paper...

    A chalange to belivers in Evolution

    1. Outer space, stars, sun, probably land, probably sea, trees, whales. 2. I don't know. What is your answer? 3. True. 4. The Sun formed about 30 million years before the Earth, so the light from the Sun was already present when the Earth began its history as a rotating planet.
