Flood Evidence [sic] True Facts #7
RS> I must confess this has taken much more of my time then I cared
RS> to spend on a "Hobby" as you suggest. However it is not my HOBBY
RS> but my life and that of my family... we have been blessed as a
RS> result. I take this time and effort that other such skeptics shall
RS> come to their logical conclusion that this Biblically stated
RS> catastrophy did occur.
So when do you get around to supporting your claim of a global flood
with some evidence?
RS> I would also like to Thank DR. Roth from the LOMA LINDA GEOSCIENCE
RS> RESEARCH INSTITUTION [....]
Which doesn't exist.
RS> [...] for the information and the Sedimentalogoist Dr. Arjen Van
RS> Der Wolf and Dr. Tom Zoutwelle for their input as well. I encourage
RS> any and all of you to write to the Inst. for futher information
RS> on this subject. Tell'um I sent You :) IHS! Ron
Not once in this entire religious tract was there a reference to a
peer-reviewed journal, geological study, paleontologist report,
radiometric dating survey. . . in every case we get out-right lies,
bold assertions, and unsupported claims. How can Ron, with a clear
conscious, call this "evidence?"
My references (where's yours, Ron?):
"Scientifically, the major challenge facing Flood geologists
is the regularity of the fossil record. If the flood and its
aftermath were responsible for the deposition of the fossil
record, would not plants and animals be all jumbled together?
Sometimes fossils are jumbled together .... Still,
the majority of fossils are associated consistently with
identifiable systems such as the Cambrian, Ordovician, etc."
