Funny fact : before being invented, inventions are not invented yet.

"Somehow, this admitted Self-mutation seems to think petroglyphs many times that age are natural formations. "
No, he just refuses to accept them as 'writing.' He kinda lost the bubble on what he was arguing, accepting that there were man-made markings going back tens of thousands of years, but 'writing' is only 6000. Therefore the world was created 6000 years ago. And God gave us writing.

You should read the rest of that thread. Or maybe you shouldn't.
Some fundies are merely ill-informed, but S/M is fullblown, pigheadedly stupid.

Dunno how many times. Lost track of how many times creationists have tried.

I would point out the flaws to you, but i think that would be an utterly futile effort.

There is a dried up bottle of plum wine discovered in China older than you think the Earth is.

That's strange. I googled "when was writing invented" and the first result has a picture of a pair of clay tablets with writing on them from circa 3200 B.C. That's more than 6,000 years ago, by the way.

There's writing on a cave wall in France that'd like to smack your fat face.

@keith: I tried to find some way that line of reasoning could make any sense. Instead it filled my head with so much fuck it pushed my brain out.
I guess that's what being a creationist feels like.

"Another very strong proof that God is real is the fact that writing doesn't go back more than 6,000 years.
You see what I mean about God being hidden but still leaves us clues?
If we really existed as a species for thousands and thousands of years, writing should go back 50,000 years at least, possibly even 100,000 years.
Atheists say "coincidence" or "Luck. Pure luck" that the origin of writing goes back to the time that God is said to have created the universe."
but you have to ask yourself this one glaring deep troubling question, "How many times can a person say 'coincidence' or 'luck, pure luck' before it stops being a coincidence or pure luck?"
We've only had flight for a century. The screw is only about 2500 years old. THe steam engine was only invented about 2 and half centuries ago. The blast furnace is.... Well I could go on.
So just what is the point?

How often can you hear a strawman say whatever you want them to until you realize you're talking shit?

He's trying desperately to evolve. Like a Pokemon. But sadly, he's a Magikarp at level one.

Even if that were true, cave painting goes back further.

I think he's thinking of the first writing sophisticated enough to record events. You know, the beginning of written history.
Yes, it's true, that DOES start about 6000 years ago. Or maybe 7000.
Clearly, that means the universe didn't exist before this time and the Creator made a tree and told us not to eat from it but we did and thereby got condemned to a Hell that the Creator also made, then waited ~4000 years to finally get around to giving us a way out of Hell by sacrificing his son who wasn't really sacrificed 'cause he was only dead for three days. It's so OBVIOUS, don'tcha think?

I read more of that thread. When presented with a bone flute that was apparently made by neanderthals who died out 30,000+ years ago, his immediate objection was to say it might have been a weapon, not a flute. For some reason, he didn't seem to think a 30,000+ year-old weapon (or a species that died out 30,000 years ago, for that matter) would disprove a 6000-year-old universe, but a 30,000+ year-old flute would. It wasn't until several people pointed this out that he backpedaled and claimed that the dating methods are flawed, and the object in question couldn't possibly be that old.
Of course, if he dismisses the dating of the flute, then he also has to dismiss the dating of this written language that he claims is proof of a 6000-year-old universe. Even with his complete ignorance of everything else discussed in that topic, the simplest logic should have told him that much.

Well, this atheist says, "Wrong."

Or it could be as simple as YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT THE FUCK YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT YOU SMALL MINDED IDIOT!!!
There. I feel much better now :)

This is an example of "my ignorance should be proof that God exists to you." argument
5/14/2012 4:13:57 AM
So the only acceptable evidence for human existence is writing? Riiiiight.

If world is thousands of years old, we should find forum posts from 1000 or even 2000 years ago.
