I am seriously coming to the conclusion that modern theists could not pass elementary school.

A grade 6 education might qualify as a miracle

You kind of have to bury your head pretty far in the sand to be a YEC bible literalist these days. My favorite part is how they all claim science is a lie, on their computers, on a worldwide information network, invented by a gay atheist.

RE: Does Anyone Believe in Noah's Ark?
If seashells were deposited by the receding flood, then they would be everywhere, not just on mountains. They would be roughly evenly distributed - along with the concomitant dirt and silt, and a hell of a lot of dead biomass. That's leaving aside the question of where the flood water came from and where it went.

ANY attempt to justify a literal global flood is so immediately full of gaping holes of ignorance, denial of observation and evidence, wishful (desperate, rather!) thinking, and plain old shit that it self-destructs when put to any intellectual rigour.

Or you can go with the cumulative and self-consistent explanation, in tune with all other known facts of geology.

Your choice.

Bucky, you seem to be a very intelligent atheist. Are there sea shells on mountain tops? Yes or no?
I will give you a little time to research this. Thanks Bucky Boy!

Even I give you the benefit of the doubt but to answer your question quite simply is yes, we find seashells on mountaintops. The apparent reason for this is because of tectonic plates lifting these once submerged areas and forming them into mountains. Remember, the world has had millions upon millions of years to collect these shells and move them and we can clearly see tectonic plates at work. Especially around the ring of fire.

Now, the apparent counter to this by people such as yourself who are overwhelmingly not supported by scientist and researchers is that the world was flooded despite not having enough water on the entire planet(including snow and water vapor within the air) Also, do you completely understand that the flood had to be around 29,000 feet to cover all land? At that height they would easily freeze to death.

Water animals would be affected as well! Water temperature and pressure will change drastically!





I will leave this video but it is clear that you want to believe because you simply want to. I understand if you want to use magic to justify your belief but in our rational world that is not an answer that I am willing to accept.

Yep, YEC's are the punching bag for EVERYBODY that isn't a YEC. Few things are more enjoyable than an watching an atheist and moderate Christian intellectually bitchslapping a biblical literalist at the same time.

Thanks so much for your reply. I just love it when you astute atheists confirm what I just posted.
I posted that seashells could be found on mountain tops...
Opening up your links claims:

"Shells on mountains are easily explained by uplift of the land."
" For centuries, human beings puzzled over the anomaly of fossil seashells found high in mountains and far from the sea."

Wow! That's just what I said... Now, for those of you who are a little slow (all atheists)..... This just in,,,, there are shells on mountain tops....

Laugh out load Thanks for the laugh, that was great! Laugh out load


Oh... sorry, I suppose I'll have to explain it to you. It was your condescending tone and calling others "slow" after you quite obviously missed the entire point. Laughat

RE: Does Anyone Believe in Noah's Ark?
Noah was always one of my biggest struggles with the OT. I went to high school with a native/indigenous American who would talk about how he got to North America and what xians did with him. I also struggled with how all plants survived, especially the carnivorous ones. I also thought about not wanting to know how Noah got all of the animals on the arc but what kind of god kills 99+% of life. My new self thinks it is totally false. The rebellious Jews stole it from the epic of Gilgamesh and/or the epic of Atra-Hasis.
