Post The T.R.U.T.H. Group haven't heard of plate tectonics

Twas filmed in Colorado Springs. Guess I won't be going there for a holiday after all.



Should make for some interesting video responses. Would be quite fitting for a WDPLAC instalment.

This is one of those things where the instinct is to ask: "But how do you know the Rockies were once underwater?"

"Well, scientists THEMSELVES say so!"

"But I thought you didn't believe scientists knew what they were doing."

"Well, they say so, right? Scientists are supposed to know everything!"

Funny, that sounds sarcastic. "But scientists say that this area was underwater in the age of the dinosaurs, which was like say 200 million years ago, and I don't think that fits a YEC view of the world."

"Well, scientists don't know what they're talking about!" And then one realizes the futility of trying to argue with a concrete block, or rather one that talks out of both sides of its mouth at the same time.

BTW, living in Loveland, Colorado, a bit over two hours' drive to the north, I can assure you that the creationist lunatic fringe is alive and well in the region.

Isnt the simple answer to his little challenge that a flood is not an ocean? 40 days and 40 nights is in no way shape or form enough time for a body of water to lay down that amount of sediment. I still want to know where the fuck the extra water comes from.

Why would an all-powerful being use a flood and make it last 40 days... couldn't do it all at once? Couldn't do it neatly and instantly? Couldn't have spared the babies or the dinosaurs?


The truth is that these make-believe stories aren't true, and if you think they are literally true you are a giant fucking moron.

For those after some substance, there's a book that seems interesting and relevant: THE OCEANS OF KANSAS by Michael Everhart, touring the great Cretaceous Inland Sea. Haven't read it but it sounds interesting.

I have commented in some of his videos, when confronted with real evidence he just ignores the comment and keeps rambling about creation, somebody should make a video response.

Just in case we needed more evidence of how poor science education is in the U.S. If these people want to pontificate on what the geology of a region really means, they should invest in a course or two at their local university.

Another thing, why do these people believe that sedimentary rocks instantaneously forms? Do they see a lot of sedimentary rock forming in a year?
