Faulty aggressive slam #1 LessGov's claim
- not MINE!
Pathetic rebuttal #1 - answering my cut and paste with a WRONG cut and paste
reference from your favorite creation-bashing website TalkOrigins.
For the Record: The discovery I originally referenced was NOT "The original claim was that in 1976 a fossil of a whale was discovered in California that was in polystrate position.
"; but rather "a discovery announced in Geology in 2004 of 346 whale fossils buried in diatomaceous earth (see 2/02/2004). That discovery was published by creation geologists who believe a global flood was responsible for their burial….
Kinda hard for you to pay attention when I have poisoned the well with SO MUCH evidence that could be attributed to a WORLDWIDE DELUGE that occurred about 4400 years ago; and all you have is your precious ad hominem attacks on Hovind because the IRS went after him and he didn't attend a University where his direct rebuttal and refusal to swallow the LIE of government-funded propaganda called evolution theory would have interfered with his completion of their degree.
First of all: 14°52'11.34"S, 74°50'06.18"W
is NOT in California ...
Second of all: it was not "a fossil of a whale
" - it was rather "346 well-preserved whales (mostly baleen whales) plus a menagerie of other creatures—sharks, turtles, seals, porpoises, ground sloths, and penguins—all fossilized at various depths beneath an elongated strip 370 acres in area and 3,800 feet above sea level
." - "buried primarily in nonlayered diatomaceous earth
Creationists call discoveries like these "Evidence of [a] compression event
"...ya know...evidence of "rapid burial
" which is HOW fossilization occurs...or, has that been disproven?
Do you have evidence that the petrified trees found in the vertical position through multiple rock layers, or, any dinosaur finds originally occurred through "a slow burial"?Petrified trees through many layers!Are
"Diatoms ... microscopic organisms living near the surface of open water—oceans or lakes."? Does
"(A teaspoon of diatoms contain hundreds of millions of individual skeletons.)"?
"When diatoms die, [do
] their silica skeletons slowly sink."?
"In deep water, [does
] the silica often dissolves before reaching the sea floor."?Is it plausible that
"Today, in shallow seas, a mushy layer of diatoms can accumulate at rates of up to 0.1 inch per year."?Does a discovery of
"346 well-preserved whales (mostly baleen whales) plus a menagerie of other creatures—sharks, turtles, seals, porpoises, ground sloths, and penguins—all fossilized ... buried primarily in nonlayered diatomaceous earth" favor evolution theory and millions of years, or, rapid burial in a flood
I've made up my mind - goodbye Xerses and Monroetalks - see you all in a few perhaps...
[everyone has my express permission to believe whatever they want about the origin of life, and heap to themselves research, articles, writings, teachers, and theological instruction that is consistent with their PERSONAL worldview - as well as - my BLESSING should they choose to IGNORE people who have nothing better to do with their time than tear down and ridicule their INDIVIDUAL belief system]
