Re: You're wrong on the fossil bit
You are wrong from the start. Fossils have nothing to do with your great flood. Biblical scholars place the flood about 4,350 years ago. The fossils you are talking about are generally millions to hundreds of millions of years old.
Nope, 4350 years is about right for their true age once you clear away all the cobwebs of the dating methods of false science.
It doesn't have to have anything to do with dating methods. Some fossils are made when all the organic material from the organism is replaced with minerals. That just could not have happen during The Flood.

Re: You're wrong on the fossil bit
Uh, the creatures were BURIED during the Flood, but the fossilization processes occurred over time afterward.
Not in less than 5000 years they didn't! You'd know that if creationists ever bothered to study fossils. But of course they'd rather turn a blind eye to the facts and keep their noses in their Bibles.
It shouldn't take more than a couple hundred years max.
Complete and utter bullshit. Stated as a matter of fact when known to be false is, actually, lying. You don't replace organic material with minerals in a couple hundred years. That's just you making stuff up because you can't admit The Flood never really happened.
That you're willing to go to such dishonest lengths to hold up your beliefs proves to me that even you don't believe them. You'll just say whatever you have to say in order to keep your Bible true. Its dishonest and pathetic.

Re: You're wrong on the fossil bit
What's "making stuff up" is the ridiculous idea that it would take thousands of years to make a fossil.
Show me a fossil that is less than thousands of years old.
You don't know that, and there is evidence that it can happen in very short periods, for instance in caves. I'd have to dig it up...
Yeah, sure. Of course you will. I'll just sit here and hold my breath until you do
Look, there countless evidence that proves without a doubt that humans have never seen a global flood. Its impossible. Literally never happened.
There's no contention, its not debatable, don't even try to act like it is.
...the replacement of organic matter with mineral matter in a matter of years, not even hundreds let alone thousands.
So where are the fossilized native americans? I live near the Cahokia Mounds. There were hundred of thousands of native americans living here about 1000 years ago. Not one single fossil of them has ever been found.
You know why? Because its impossible.
Fossilization simply takes longer than that.
Like I said, the fact that you're willing to lie about it proves to me that even you don't believe your own bullshit. You're just acting like you do to save face. But you know its crap, you really do.

Re: Fossilization does NOT take a lot of time
Fossilization does take special conditions, the very conditions that would have been provided in a worldwide Flood,
That's a lie; you just made that up. You don't know anything about fluid dynamics.
It is pure fantasy that The Flood just so happened to provide the exact right conditions so that the dinosaurs would be fossilized but the more recent creatures would not.
It's about CONDITIONS, not time.
Time remains a component, but the conditions will affect how much time it takes.
This one gives some examples of "petrification," meaning the substitution of mineral matter for organic matter, that were observed to occur in short periods of time.
Oh, okay. We've got an anecdote from freakin' 1889. And what is the claim?:
quote:
The dripping waters are used for the purposes of petrifying anything sent to be hung up in the drip of the water ledge, which flows over, as it were, the eaves of the cave. This ledge of limestone rock is augmented unceasingly by the action of the waters which flow over it. This cascade has an endless variety of objects hung up by short lengths of wire to be petrified by the water trickling over them,
So all the dinosaurs were in caves and strung up by wires to hang in a stream and that's how they fossilized so quickly!?
No really:
