Ah.Well I was curious and watched the debate on youtube. I think its because we can test these methods via experiments and probability, and repeat said tests and cross check each other to make sure we are actually have substance in our claims and not seeing false patterns in the graph.

The ark story with Noah doesn't raise any red flags for you? The fact that we have so many different species and subspecies all over the world that all came from one ark? I've taken enough biology classes to know that creating a new species takes time and ALOT of mutations and adaptations. Not to mention they somehow have to travel to all the islands, and other continents.

I've sorta come to the conclusion that this religion has painted itself into a corner where its almost a "test" to have faith in every word of the bible without question. And I Don't believe God would give us the brain and the know how to truly appreciate the sheer complexity of his work through science and then try trick us into disregarding what our experiments are telling us.

Not everything can be tested. But as ive said, you have to draw your own conclusions ^^. and if thats what makes the most sense to you scientifically and spiritually. Then I don't fault u for that one bit, you do you. ^^

Except there is no way to test the test to make sure that the way it degrades is the way we believe it degrades or a test to see if the rock had any of the daughter isotopes in it when it formed. I would like to inform you that mutations are not required for specieization, simple genetic variation within an isolated population would cause lots of different traits to appear quite quickly and the journey from the middle east to their current areas would provide plenty of opportunities for adaptation and there is no evidence that mutations cause new genes to arise. Most mutations cause the replication of the gene right next to it or destruction of a gene.

Well, This can be a huge can of worms (like is isnt already).
But I would Suggest you watch the Bill nye versus Ken Ham debate. It Bill points out a buttload of em. Then you can decide for yourself.

The issue is, faith is suppose to supsend any disbelief that the bible's event happened. Which faith is good.

But considering man wrote the book, translated the book, edited and added, and subtracted away from the book... I have a large issue putting my faith 100% in man. To me, the bible is the end product of a game of Telephone. Sure, some of the words might be right...but alot of it could be misheard or misunderstood.

I don't know what you are talking about because I just read the transcript for the debate and I can't seem to find any. Bill Nye said a lot of things about the Bible but never gave any sources for his knowledge on the subject which makes me put what he said under great suspicion for factual accuracy. Why does he think that the rate of decay has always been the same? why does he think that the Ark was built in the middle east? Why does he think creationists are a minority in Christianity? Why does it seem like Bill thinks that people only join religion for community and comfort? Why does he think that he's not making assumptions about the accuracy of dating methods?

The god of the bible, YHWH (Yahweh/Jehovah) was originally a Canaanite minor deity who was brothers with Baal under their Father and mother El and Asherah respectively.

I checked five different sites and they all seem to balance out saying Florida's is 98. Looks like Texas wins this round.
