He seems to believe in the 6,000 year old creation theory. I don't want to get into a religious debate at all with him. All I'm aiming to do is knock some sense into him. I don't think I've ever met a single Christian who honestly believed that the world was 6,000 years old until now. It is possible to be Christian and believe the world to be billions of years old...

I didn't bring this to the religion thread, because I'm trying to keep it as a non-religious debate. If anyone in the Pit could help me find some evidence that disproves his 6,000 year old creation theory, I would greatly appreciate it. Fossil records, meteor strikes, whatever you can dig up, I would love your help in this.

lol. I am guessing he knows about fossil discoverys and the like just probably chose to ignore it, showing some facts and figures isn't going to 'knock some sense into him'. Just let the man be, live and let live. Go wathc some pr0n or something.

We have a thread on this already.

And we've tried knocking sense into the Creationists but you just can't hit someone on the head with a sledgehammer over the internet...

Because of the staggering evidence to the contrary in Geology, astronomy and biology?

maybe you can read my one blog on it and see how you feel believing the world is billions of years old will be giving into evolution.. so thats y Christians cant believe it... but to me it just doesnt make sense that "scientists" can arrive at a figure that the world is 100000000000000000000000000000 years old... please explain how the hell they know that???

Yep, I'm one of them, along with millions of others I'd imagine.

You just have to believe that evolution was essentially God's call, and the way he wanted us to come about.

That's how I back up my own belief anyway lol.

Just remember that there are more fundamentalists in the Jewish and Muslim faiths than there are in the Christian faith. Therefore, I conclude by saying ignore him, he will die like all other people and you will be rid of his idea then.

This does not mean I rule out any 'accidents' if you catch my drift.

Or you could go to your library and check out the book Scientists Take On Intelligent Design and Creationism. It looks at the claim of a young Earth and provides several avenues of evidence against it, including magnetic fields and its relation to the sea floor, dating techniques done on chondrites, taking a look at the effectiveness of carbon and the other dozen or so dating techniques, the age of the sun, countering the 'increased rate of decay in the past' idea, and of course how to estimate the age of the universe.

4.55 billion years old you mean. And there are also old earth creationists as well.

um right, carbon dating is very much a decent estimative method of dating but cannot be solely relied upon when accurately dating *nightmares of carbon dating mummies essay returns*

Actually, 238 Uranium has a half-life of 4.5 billion years old

And we have half of all the uranium that we started with

this leads scientists to believe that the earth is atleast 4.5 billion years old.
