wow, that's more of a stretch than goatse.

"Am I off-base here?"
You are so asking for it. But I would hate myself if I do it.
8/29/2009 2:04:12 AM
This is going to get amusing.

Create: "to cause to come into being, as something unique that would not naturally evolve or that is not made by ordinary processes."
NOT bung together some bits of old rock you have lying around.
'Am I off-base here?'
Yes, you're a moron.

I thought he used dark materials, not raw ones.

"Am I off-base here?" You're not in the same star system the ball park is in!

"the materials that the Earth is comprised of. Dirt, rocks and strata. Correct?"
But God suffers from periodic blindness. As in he can't see the Periodic Table of Elements. So much for God's omnipresence. Oh, and if God made Adam from dirt, then humans are silicon-based lifeforms, amirite?
I read the username as "agape-for-robin" -- who is Robin, and which orifice is agape for him?"
Thanks. Now I have the image in my mind of Batman performing a Goatse for the Boy Wonder. Can't unsee. :S

"Am I off-base here?"
You're not even wrong.
8/29/2009 9:32:52 AM
You fail at chemistry, dear.
8/29/2009 9:40:51 AM
Yes, you're off-base, but I'm glad that you are at least being nice about this. To answer your question, a lot of these materials would not have actually been formed until they came together into the Earth. Furthermore, if the materials ARE 4.5 billion years old, that calls into question the creationists "6000 years" estimate.
8/29/2009 9:49:34 AM
Then why isnt everything dated as 4.5 billion years old? Afterall, all the "raw materials" on earth come from those elements. So, To carbon date a bicycle, the shroud of turin, a spear from the bronze age, etc, would all show existence from 4.5 billion years ago. Afterall, that is when all the "raw materials" were made buy, oh , I guess gawd.....

Not so much "off-base" as "out-of-the-hospital".
8/29/2009 10:58:21 AM
So then where did the original stuff come from in this argument?
Don't diss this one too hard, these were the questions I started to ask (okay, I was 10) that lead to my deconversion.
8/29/2009 11:55:55 AM
Oh the special pleading is painful!
8/29/2009 12:25:17 PM
According to Christian teachings, God created ex nihilo.
8/29/2009 1:26:20 PM
I hate to say it, but that may be the most coherent argument i have ever heard come out of the mouth of a YEC.
8/29/2009 1:28:23 PM
Yes, you are off base. This is Earth Base 1. I repeat. This is Earth Base 1. You appear to have drifted off course and landed in an uncharted fantasy universe somewhere inside a mystical cloud structure that is obscuring the exit. You might be able to hear this message but be unable to ascertain its direction therefore, you may well have to come to terms with the fact that you will remain trapped forever.
8/29/2009 2:05:52 PM
I'm actually going to admit that this is really a pretty perceptive question. And thanks to Ouabache for answering it.
8/29/2009 4:21:03 PM
Totally not grabbing at straws just there...
8/29/2009 8:23:22 PM
So, um, where'd He get the raw materials from?
8/29/2009 8:24:01 PM
You're not even on the playing field.
8/30/2009 6:32:48 AM
This is actually comparatively reasonable, since it doesn't deny known science and seems to insinuate at least the possibility of accepting that the Bible's statements aren't literal. Even though I don't think it happened that way, I can at least read it without losing further faith in humanity. I don't think this qualifies as fundie.
8/31/2009 7:59:03 AM
So the Earth is 6000 years old but was BUILT out of stuff billions of years old?
Yeah, that makes sense.
8/31/2009 8:04:58 AM
No wonder the world is in such bad shape. It is made out of used materials.
9/9/2009 10:04:56 AM
So you're saying that raw materials were floating around for billions of years before God made the heavens and the earth? Where did they come from?
