    Palaeontology is pointless as an argument.

    Noah's flood is disproven by being obviously impossible on more levels than you can shake a pointed stick at.

    If you are seriously discussing the possibility that it might be a true account of events that really occurred with someone who has ever hear the word 'palaeontology', then you are wasting your time. Such a person cannot be reasoned with.

    You may as well try to prove that flat-Earth believers are wrong by appealing to Special Relativity.

    Once somebody is that far gone, that they have the intellectual ability to grasp what you are saying, but haven't already seen that the flaws in their beliefs are obvious and glaring, there's no reaching them.

    You can't reason a person out of a position they didn't reason themselves into.

    I get what you're saying, but put simply, there are a lot of atheists out there that were slowly but surely reasoned out of their faith. I was.

    What's not to believe about the story? Our loving creator decided to kill everybody but one nutjob family. A 600-year-old man built a boat big enough to blah, blah, blah. The trees that were underwater didn't die off because...well, why do you suppose? Animals from as far as Tierra del Fuego, the Cape of Good Hope, Papua New Guinea, the Siberian salt marsh, and the Central park petting zoo made it to Palestine because they had free cruise tickets. Accept it on faith or roast in hell.

    I've thought it doesn't help that the fundies probably think he looks a little evil and must be satanic.

    But damn the guy is brilliant.

    I agree. His evolutionary knowledge is up there. He really knows what he's talking about, and he also has (amusingly) a low tolerance for bullshit.

    Ironic since the person who created paleontology wanted to use it to prove Noah's Flood was real.
    “Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
    Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
    Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
    Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?”
