Please explain. I've heard of may ways, but going by ratios of patterns and assumptions shouldn't prove something's age.


So if I had a jar of jell beans sitting on a table and could confirm that one jelly bean was removed from the jar every minute while it sat on the table. I couldn't count the jelly beans in the jar and determine how long it has been sitting on the table?

This is basically what we are doing. But it's even better as we have multiple "jars" with all sorts of "candies" which we can cross reference.

analogy aside, one of the first points of evidence prior to radiometric dating came from the visual inspection of the geological layers. There are simply to many of them for the Earth to be so young.

because it's just a theory,


If it's a theory then with the right resources and know how you can repeat the findings.

Theory; A scientific explanation of related observations or events based on hypotheses and verified multiple times by different independent researchers.

I was kicked out of public school when I was 10 for always denying things the teacher said about bullying, evolution, and slavery.


This explains your incredibly poor education.

I assume you think evolution, abiogenesis, etc. to be the thoughts and assumptions? Because if so...I do love satire

nice line. to bad it doesn't say anything about your opinion or doesn't it bring us any closer to the ground of your problem. (yes it's your problem. not ours. we are just trying to learn you something... why we try is anyone's guess. because your obviously not listening.


party..I said that =p

I think this just shows more so how KnightDeclan needs to start using the quote button instead of the italic one >_>

at least that 3000 year older then the bible tells you.
Why would you come to this conlusion?


Has the simple math behind it early on

But when Darwin comes up with crazy things like evolution, which I can't do myself,


We can see evolution happening

because it's just a theory,


No..a scientific theory. That is much different

These teachers are forcing theories and opinions down children's throats like they're facts.


Because they are facts

yessss. bombs dropped shots fired. mage is tearing it up

Because they are facts


define fact (hint: try to avoid doing so in such a way that your belligerent exaggeration of the power of induction is retroactively excused or erased)

Let me explain. Any study which i can come across myself, I believe in. But when Darwin comes up with crazy things like evolution, which I can't do myself, because it's just a theory, I don't believe it. There's no possible way to prove evolution. You can say this leads to that, but you can't prove how it relates to evolution. It's still just a theory. I was kicked out of public school when I was 10 for always denying things the teacher said about bullying, evolution, and slavery. These teachers are forcing theories and opinions down children's throats like they're facts. It's not right. They should be learning about plants, gases, math, astronomy, spelling, grammar, etc.


my remarkable proof of the sentience of water, gleaned over diligent study which i led and conducted myself:

1. create a puddle of water on a surface. personalize the specifics to your liking

2. make sure the place where the water is is really boring and stupid for any age

3. put a bunch of cool things in the adjacent room (make sure you appeal to all ages; i personally was sure to include ice packs for old arthritic water, champagne for partygoing water, ice for baby water since babies love ice)

4. hours later, observe how the water has moved from the boring dumb puddle it was in (lame) to the cool room full of cool stuff (cool)

additional observation--the water has of its own free will gathered on the champagne and around the ice. water is obviously sentient and it loves to have fun

A thing that is indisputably the case.

his fault, he is still not quoting people.

These teachers are forcing theories and opinions down children's throats like they're facts.

atleast they learn something from reality.

those teachers forcing doctrine down childrens throats like they are facts.
those should be banned from teaching children under the 21 anything.

GMO's should be labeled on/in food we buy. FYI for those of you not in America, this is not currently done. For those of you not in California, the food industry last year spent millions of dollars to convince voters to reject a GMO labeling requirement.
It is my understanding that in europe, GMOs were either banned or labeling is required. This was because no long-term studies had been conducted to show they were safe for consumtion. Unfortunately, the American Govt (by which i mean corporations) took the opposite approach and fully incorporated GMOs in all our food with telling because there were no long term studies showing that they are unsafe for consumption.

PS: To those who were arguing that organic is too expensive, or healthy food is too expensive: The reason S@#tty food is so cheap is because the government subsidizes the bajesus out of corn, wheat, and soy, which are the foundations of all of the highly processed junk foods. Meanwhile, they charge organic and sustainable farmers more money for certifications and give them less money in subsidies. This is why there is a disparity between healthy and junk food.

And Mage: that skeptoid video is highly biased: "all this gene does is make the caterpillars stop eating the corn." ... is a very political way of saying "we added a gene to this corn so that it produces its own poisons that kill things when they try to eat it. Then, without telling anybody, we feed this corn to people, and animals that people eat."
Plus that Dunning guy is a corporate shill who is currently in jail for stealing money from ebay.

Also, the amount of food in a package has been cut down greatly, but we're still paying the same amount for it.

So have we actually returned back to this 'poison' tid-bit?

I have to give you props KnightDeclan. I don't how you do it, but you're somehow able to make all the regular forum posters band together against your ignorant ideas and thoughts. Even I can't do that.

And it's your own fault for getting kicked out of school. Sure school didn't always agree with me or teach me actually useful things, but I now have a diploma. And it is a magical thing.
