Need help with Young Earth rubbish!
Someone I know has just posted this link on Facebook, and I was hoping I could get some help from some smart people here on the RRS forums in responding to what is obviously just Young Earth bullshit.
Some of it is easy enough to just laugh at; I mean who uses this as evidence:
"The first edition of Encyclopedia Britannica in 1771 gives the age of the earth as thousands of years, and describes the global Flood of Noah as a real historical event. "
And everything after that is just the usual Christian literalist nonsense about creation and the Fall and sin. But the first half of the document gives a lot of evidence of failings with dating methods that I don't know how or where to start looking up.
The article also seems to fail to actually mention any evidence for Young Earth theories, just claiming that "Believe it or not, there is a lot of geological evidence that suggests the rocks formed rapidly and that the world is young, as the Bible says."
So, can you wonderful people give me any help with this BS?
