Hey guys and girls,
Sorry, I've been away for a couple of days on a well earned holiday
Glad to see this thread has kept going in my absence. Does look like it got a little side tracked there for a bit, but my thanks to Adam and Franklin who seem to be trying to get it back on track.
The question of day and night seems like a nice simple example to continue working with. Adam has listed the Genesis story as evidence. Is there anything else that Creationists use to explain this important aspect of our world?
I also thought this might be interesting to discuss further.
Creation, it doesn't need a theory. You find evidence that fits the Creation account. It's that simple. What are you asking for when you mean Creation Theory???
A Flood Model??? got it
A Flood Model on the assorment of layers??? Got it.
I'm sure these things have been covered before, but I don't think they've been covered in the same way I'm proposing here. Do you think you could go over these models/theories again for us? I'd be interested to see how many questions these theories can answer.
Now, there is no theory of Creation. It was a historical account, not a theory. We don't call the Civil War, the Theory of the Civil War. A truth is truth, no matter who or what's opinion on the truth is.
Even historical accounts use evidence and build theories to explain the past. Would you be kind enough to outline some of the evidences/models/theories that explain the historical accuracies? This will link in with the flood model previously mentioned, but I'd also be interested to hear some of the evidence that supports the Genesis account.
You see, Creationist, are creationist because of a historical account, not a theory. The Scientific method is used by Creationist, to figure out all the same things as everyone else in the universe does. We all do it through the same process.
This is the kind of thing I'm looking for. I'm not trying to claim Creationists don't use the scientific method, I'm askng how it is used and how conlcusions are drawn.
Just a brief reminder to those participating here that the Creationists are providing the stories, and the evolutionists are questioning that evidence; we are not trying to provide our own.
