pete. What is the difference between interpreting differently based on honest questioning and interpreting dishonestly to support a myth?
What is your basis of a young earth? Is it because fossil evidence doesn't stack up? Is it because there is something that fundamentally prevents any other interpretation from having merit?
Please. If there is anything that supports it, say it. I know of no text that supports it. None. I hear that some say it must be so because the Bible stories say so. Is that the basis of your assertion? is that the bedrock of the alternative scientists you quote?
Fo you know the difference between stories and evidence?
It is difficult to rise above insulting you if you insist on such things. The insults are perhaps treating you as an equal. Humouring you would be more insulting, surely?
