Circular reasoning: Evolution.

“Those who argue that the biblical timescale is wrong often commit the fallacy of begging the question—they merely assume the very thing they are trying to prove. Any argument that the earth is billions of years old must presuppose that rates and conditions are basically constant (e.g., no global Flood), and that the world was not supernaturally created in a fully-functioning state. However, the Bible denies these critical presuppositions. So, when an old-earth advocate uses these assumptions to conclude that the Bible is wrong (at least about the age of the earth), he has already tacitly assumed this. His conclusion that the Bible is wrong is based solely upon his assumption that the Bible is wrong. He is reasoning in a vicious circle.” Ken Ham and Jason Lisle

    A great, short word on the Truth vs. the evolution lie….from experts I trust and love. Most of my teen and adult science curriculum comes from these guys. And, Ray Comfort/Living Waters, I trust and support them completely. We love to watch all of their videos, movies, and The Comfort Zone show.

    I’m a Christian. According to the Hebrew word for ‘day’ in Genesis 1, could it not be possible that a day was something other than 24 hrs or 1,000 yrs?
