C_Mat: You're a YEC. Can you explain and prove creationism?

A little request.

Bump.

Not only should C_Mat learn this, but EVERY creationist needs to learn this--you don't prove creationism just by rejecting evolution.

If we disproved gravity that wouldn't prove Intelligent Falling.

If we disproved chemistry that wouldn't prove alchemy.

So to reiterate, just because you feel like you've disproved evolution (please, go get your Nobel Prize!) or just don't feel it holds water, that does not justify believing in creationism.

You know what does? Justifying creationism.

He doesn't think it is. Besides, if he ignores this, we still win. It still shows he doesn't have a single reason to believe what he does.

If he believes in something demonstrably irrational, you think he'll actually care about what you guys say? Silly topic.

We know he doesn't listen to a LOT of people. (It's the only way to be a YEC.) We just want everyone to realize it.

Someone who closes their mind has no business entering the minds of others.

Just because he doesn't come into this topic to defend himself doesn't mean that he CAN'T defend himself.

Don't you know elementary logic?

But people who refuse to explain themselves time and again probably shouldn't be held to a high standard.

In short: Jack Myers made very public, disparaging and insulting remarks about my integrity on his widely-read Internet site, offering me no opportunity to refute his lies, then he made me a challenge. I immediately responded affirmatively, he reneged, and then he failed to pay the $1,000 forfeit to the JREF that hed promised. I must say that Jack Myers has met my every expectation.
