10 Best Evidence of Creation

Postby BeamStalk » Wed Jan 21, 2009 5:51 pm

http://www.discovercreation.org/newlet/ ... 202000.htm

1. The Fossil Record.
2. Irreducible Complexity
3. Gaps in the Living World
4. Laws of Probability
5. Law of Cause and Effect:
6. Chicken or Egg Principle
7. Intelligent Design
8. The Anthropic Principle
9. Information Theory
10. Extreme Complexity

I am convinced, plus this board had no posts so I didn't want it to feel lonely.

I was unaware that the fossil record does not show a progression of taxonomic clades over time. Is there a geologist here who can clarify?

Does anyone know why we don't find tetrapods in the Cambrian if there's no progression of forms over time?

Oh yeah, that list totally convinced me - I'm off to Seattle to start working for the Discovery Institute.

Whats the difference between irreducible complexity and extreme complexity?

Notice they also claim there are no living things in the fossil record before the Cambrian "explosion", which is just false. Not too mention they don't mention how long the period was for when all of this life "suddenly" appeared.

"Polymath" means "having learned much"; the correct word for "having failed to learn much" is simply "Ray".

If he snowboards on acid then that's extreme complexity. I know it wasn't easy when I tried it.

I was only on pot when I last snowboarded. Does that count?

It certainly does. I can't believe people get disqualified from sporting events (especially snowboarding) for smoking pot - it's a performance debilitating drug for The Dude's sake!
