    Are YECs evolving into a sub-species– homo non-sapiens?

    To date earth, it’s best to research both sides of debate

    The author of a recent letter purports to debunk the Christian view of the world as a fable.

    The writer bases his views on supposed scientific fact. Perhaps he should actually research his subject matter rather than simply repeating someone else’s either biased or uninformed opinion.

    For instance, if one asks a scientist how he determines the age of a fossil the answer is by the layer of rock in which it is found. Then if you ask how he determines the age of the rock, the reply is by the type of fossils found in it.

    Um, what is wrong with this picture? How about a fossilized tree extending through many layers of rock? This must be the Methuselah of all trees!

    If each rock layer were formed over eons of time the tree would have had to live thousands and thousands of years to have accomplished this feat!

    Poor Lin. Obviously she forgot “Tis better to say nothing and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt.”
