Thread Name: BS: Young Earth Creationism
Subject: RE: BS: Young Earth Creationism
////A common response to the fact that YEC has an explanation for everything is to say, "See, those YEC guys aren't scientific; their theory is unfalsifiable". Be fair, guys. What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. If creationism is dismissed on the grounds that it is unfalsifiable, then AEN had better check its own house.////

Yes, I've read your examples of how AEN, as you call it, is unfalsifiable and found it wanting. Piltdown man was simply a hoax not something that proves AEN right or wrong--it was just a hoax. You brought up nothing that proved AEN was wrong. Your argument about the various timelines in a work of art was similarly unconvincing simply because your analogy doesn't work. You are trying to compare an ordinary human endeavor to something that no human endeavor can be compared, i.e. the creation of the universe. And you did this without offering a shred of proof. No need to go all philosophical on you. You offered a bad analogy and nothing else. I hope you have more than that.
