    Your favorite line "getting called out" and my previous response was from a biblical perspective to a biblical narrative. Anyway, 65 million years ago is a long time. I am curious for the accuracy. Did this meteorite have a date stamped from when it was made?

    Wow, you really don't mind getting called on stupid ass bullshit, do you? Do you really mean to suggest that geologists need a date-stamp to fix an event in the geologic record? After all this time on the interwebs, you never once came across dating methods for 'whendidshitgetburied?'
    Are you under the impression that Jesus bought things with coins stamped 20AD?

    Not really, especially if its false... my opinion of course. Accuracy is all I highlighted, not a guess , (a good guess if you must) it was just an instant response, being so-called called-out for a biblical response to a biblical narrative.

    Oh, of course.
    But how you came to that opinion does, in my opinion, involve some serious bullshit.
    Accuracy is all I highlighted,
    Accuracy AND method, actually. Suggesting they needed a date-stamp to get a number.
    not a guess , (a good guess if you must)
    Say rather an 'educated' guess.
    it was just an instant response, being so-called called-out for a biblical response to a biblical narrative.
    But no. That's wrong. There's no biblical account of how much sediment was kicked up by The Flood. How could there be, with the biblical cosmology of the Earth being a flat mat of dirt floating on the Waters Below.
    Only the modern creationist model uses, actually depends on this churning of the Earth's surface material in a bid to account for all the layers and the fossils.

    You tried to introduce a tiny bit of modern geology into covering up an unexplored consequence of the biblical narrative. YOu can't have it both ways, and you certainly can't claim you were offering a biblical answer when your answer isn't biblically sourced.

    Are you perhaps confusing accuracy and precision? 65 million would be a statement of accuracy. Adding +/- 5 million years to that 65 million would speak to precision. It is understood that dating has some uncertainty within the limits of the precision of the measurement technique so that is generally not specified. Or are you saying that any dating that contradicts to the Biblical chronology is absolutely wrong?

    Way to go: double down on your stupid claim when you get called out.

    Nobody claimed that the meteor was 65 million years old. It is likely as old as our solar system (over 4 billion years). What I said was that the impact occurred about 65 million years ago. See how ignorance can be embarrassing?

    If you are curious about the accuracy of the dating methodology, you should follow up and do some reading for yourself. Like click on the link in my post that cites 33 academic sources (books or papers) from which the article was compiled. That way you might actually be able to participate in a discussion where you are reasonably well informed as to the facts.

    Finally, sarcasm can be effective when you are well informed about the topic of discussion, and know how to use sarcasm effectively. But that doesn't apply to most things you post. I would suggest you try to stay away from it in future posts.

    Then why did you bring up geology in your post? And why do you continue to double down on your assertion regarding dating methods when you clearly don't know shit about how its done?

    Edit: My point was that there is no geological or genetic evidence to support the Biblical flood story. Which you ignored completely.

    Some good indivdual topic ideas, nice one.
    Geologists have been investigating the earth's crust for a long time, and they have found all sorts of things. For example, they have found evidence of a meteor strike from 65 million years ago, all across the globe, which is the event that is believed to have caused a mass extinction on the planet that included the dinosaurs. Guess what geologists haven't found? Evidence for a global flood within the past 5,000 years or so that could be tied to the Biblical flood story. Amazing, right?

    But it doesn't end there. An extinction event of the magnitude of the Biblical flood would have been obvious in the genomes of all living things that experienced this extreme population bottleneck (a family of humans and two animals of each kind). That evidence does not exist either. We can identify population bottlenecks in humans from 100,000 years ago when the population had dropped to just 30,000 or so individuals, but there's nothing from 4,000 years ago when the population had dropped to just a handful of people? Its almost as if the global flood story isn't true.

    Getting called out repeatedly for posting nonsense like this would be embarrassing to most people, but not to you apparently.
    The biblical flood myth would be a good one to act out in a classroom because everyone would be violently killed and sent to hell except one family and some animals. Kids might actually learn something about how horrible and dangerous religion is.

    The more I think about this the better it gets. The kids have to hold up signs saying "I am Evil" before they are slaughtered and sent to hell. They're told to act like they are on fire and are burning, being tortured, because they are all evil and sinful and are being punished by their god. Good stuff.

    The sad thing is that many adult, born-again Christians down south would not find such a reenactment of the flood story to be even the least bit horrific or shocking. They know the story well and accept this genocidal god's actions as justifiable.
