Quote# 45627

As a biology teacher and a creationist, I find that all of the fossil evidence and radioactive dating that supposedly supports the evolutionary theory, actually can also be used to support a seven day creation with an earth that is less than 12,000 years old. As God made the earth, He obviously made a mature earth.
[...]
There is also the probability that oil deposits existed and they would seem to be millions of years old, though they were just made less than one week ago. Fossils could be part of the makings of this old earth. As most most scientists desire to know everything they can, it is difficult for many of them to admit that there are many things we humans will never know. Belief in God and in creation forces one to accept that fact.

As an atheist, I find that all of the evidence points towards the Flying Spaghetti Monster creating the world Last Thursday. Prove me wrong.

What's the difference between an old Earth and a young Earth that looks old? If it looks like it's billions of years old, then we have NO reason to accept an explanation that goes against it.

A young earth that looks old is proof of a lying, prankster creator. Do you really want to go there Scott?

In other news, black is white and down is up.

Also, with a frankly reprehensible and anti-intellectual attitude like that, it's a wonder they let you within 100 feet of a school, let alone teach in one.

I hope that's your real name, so local parents know not to let their kids take your class.

As for last week's oil deposits...buddy, that would solve so many problems if it were remotely true. *sigh*

How can you be a biology teacher and a creationist? Does this mean you get to teach innocent children a lot of bullshit? Why would you do that?

So if the oil deposits were created less than a week ago, that must mean that you're a believer in Last Thursdayism, right?

"As a biology teacher and a creationist, I find that all of the fossil evidence and radioactive dating that supposedly supports the evolutionary theory, actually can also be used to support a seven day creation with an earth that is less than 12,000 years old."

A biology teacher? Got a Ph.D. do ya? Then shut up.

And unless you have a geology or physics degree your opinion of dating methods is about as relevant as your opinion on fossils. Be quiet and let the people with the advanced degrees speak.

"As God made the earth, He obviously made a mature earth.
[...]"


Ah. I see. So you worship a lying, trickster god who likes to put over cosmic pranks on his hapless creations. Gotcha.

By the way, how do you know that the Bible is true since obviously your god enjoys fucking with you?

"There is also the probability that oil deposits existed and they would seem to be millions of years old, though they were just made less than one week ago."

So then you do have a Ph.D. and relevant field experience in geology. What's that, you don't? Pity.

"Fossils could be part of the makings of this old earth."

Fossils: God's duct tape. Holding the Earth together for 6000 years.

"As most most scientists desire to know everything they can, it is difficult for many of them to admit that there are many things we humans will never know."

Most start out wanting to know everything they can and then, as their education goes on, they specialize. The good scientists know enough not to speculate or make proclamations outside their own field since they realize they don't know a damned thing about it and are, at best, studied amateurs.

"Belief in God and in creation forces one to accept that fact."

Good thing then that belief in god and creation are irrelevant.

Somebody tell him that Terry Pratchett, with his version of "rocks millions of years old that weren't there last week", isn't exactly acting in the field of archeology.

Oh, wait, he's in fiction, where this idea belongs.

Yeah, Ok, we're done here...

There is NO WAY you can be an effective biology teacher and a YEC without some serious multiple-personality disorder.

So much failure in one place.

WTF?

Methinks you are a "Biology Teacher" in the same way I am a multimillionaire....

You fail as a "science" teacher.


8/23/2008 3:46:46 PM

Oh really?

I actually had a creationist biology teacher in high school. Because of him I didn't understand evolution for years after.

You fail at physics, chemistry, geology, and biology. And I wouldn't be surprised if you failed at theology as well.

Nice to see they trot this bullshit idea out of retirement every few years.

Making shit up for Jesus and calling yourself something you never will be, is a bad sin in your fantasy gods eyes. So, why do you do that, Scott Guenther. Do you hate god?

As a biology teacher and a creationist, this asswipe is a living oxymoron ... emphasis, of course, on the "moron" part.

"biology teacher and a creationist"

You need to get fired, and soon.
