And still helping to underline my points about faith and the utter lack of rationality that it represents.
"Or so you state as fact, but should be theory. Hence the problem. Science has no factual proof, just like Christianity"
Again with fundamental misunderstanding of science. Do you know the difference between a scientific theory and something that some bearded twat just made up centuries ago?
It's vast. As vast as the vacant space between your ears.
And in any case, the decay of radio isotopes is measurable. It is a fact.
"it is impossible to STATE 100% this thing is 100 million years old."
Yup, well done genius. There is a margin for error, but since you refuse to educate yourself about what this is, or what measures can be taken to narrow that margin, using factual data that is measurably correct, you once again put your ignorance on clear view for all to see.
I continue to laugh of my ass off. I might even find time to pity you.
If there is a deity, you are going straight to hell, for the entertainment of everyone with a brain that works properly.
"What I'm seeing here is a bunch of atheists as bigoted about their belief system (the absence of any God) as any of the religious fundamentalists they so arrogantly despise."
Then look closer. At no point in any of these comments has anyone stated "There is no God", merely that dribbling fuckwits who think dinosaurs just popped off last Thursday are retards.
"I am not religious, but I do respect my fellow human beings' right to form their own understandings and judgements about the Universe."
That's nice. But most religion has fuck all to do with forming your own judgements, quite the opposite in fact. That's what 'faith' means.
And you are of course right, not ALL christians are total retards. The Gnostics have some cracking insights, for instance.
Shame the rest of the christians persecuted them as heretics, eh ? Same old same old.
