No, you would be sitting on the ball/globe/sphere of the Earth. Why didn't the Hebrews use the word for ball?  (Jan 14, 2010 | post #103401)

As atheists are often outcasts in religious societies, why would it be surprising they lack in social areas? And how is that related to the truth value of atheist or theism?  (Jan 14, 2010 | post #103398)

Considering we're talking about something in the Torah, why does it matter than Christians who lived after the Earth was known to be round think? Of course they're going to retrofit their interpretation. Have any quotes showing that the ancient Hebrews believed the Earth was round?  (Jan 14, 2010 | post #103393)

Of course we can be destroyed. If you make a sandcastle and then a wave washes over it, it is no longer a sandcastle. It's irrelevant that the individual grains of sand still exist: the castle is gone. The same is true of us.  (Jan 14, 2010 | post #103372)

What fellow atheist scientists? Your ICR Grand Canyon paper was debunked as a premeditated fraud about 50 pages back.  (Jan 14, 2010 | post #103371)

No, but you should at least attribute it. In any case, do you have any sources to back up its claims? And this NY Times article is extremely vague. It just says this group's uranium-thorium method is more accurate than carbon dating "in some cases." What cases? Are they cases where carbon dating is already known to have limited accuracy?  (Jan 14, 2010 | post #103369)

Yello, You are incorrect. The Bible can be (and is) taught in schools. For example, when I was in high school, one of my English classes read the Book of Ruth as part of a unit on people of conviction. The Bible is an important piece of literature. It simply shouldn't be taught in a way that indoctrinates children.  (Jan 14, 2010 | post #103249)

The phrase is "the circle of the Earth". This is quite plain: the shape of the Earth is a circle. It does not say "a circle of the Earth". It's not a slice out of a sphere.  (Jan 14, 2010 | post #103189)

Yes, it is one type, though not the type we were talking about. Sources for Lindow and Santorini dates? I found your paragraph stolen from the site angelusonline.com' s Shroud of Turin page and they didn't give any references. Wikipedia states that the dating problem with Lindow is that the date of the body and date of the peat he was found in are what differ by 900 years, not that the body itself was producing hugely different dates.  (Jan 14, 2010 | post #103188)

Plainly incorrect. You can certainly sit in the middle of a circle/disc. We are not talking about a ring. A circle includes the middle area. To stretch "circle" into some chunk of meridian is nuts. Why wouldn't they just have used the word for ball/sphere rather than circle/disc?  (Jan 13, 2010 | post #103137)

Creationists intentionally misusing radiometric dating, or using it improperly, is not an example of it being inaccurate.  (Jan 13, 2010 | post #103134)

You can look up hominid fossils online. For example, the wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedi a.org/wiki/List_of _hominina_fossils Why are you changing the subject? AND completely ignoring what I'm saying?  (Jan 13, 2010 | post #103070)

Radiometric dating is accurate. Or do you propose we throw out physics?  (Jan 13, 2010 | post #103068)

They describe things that are big and scary and we're supposed to take this as being dinosaurs despite the fact that these dinosaurs and humans never lived together? And please re-read my post. I said I *don't* blame the Bible for not describing dinosaurs. The writers simply didn't know they ever existed.  (Jan 13, 2010 | post #103062)
