Iam?

That's all fine and dandy, but it doesn't answer the question.




 

1. Extremists think that thinking means agreeing with them.
2. There are three sides to every story: your side, my side, and the truth.
3. God is the original nothingness of the universe.

Which is to say, YECs have no answer at all. 


Let me explain why this is a problem for YECism.  If YECism really were a scientific model in competition with mainstream science, you would be able to make predictions based on that model --- like you'd predict that fish and fowls turn out to be more similar than either of those groups and land creatures, because fish and fowls were created on the same day; you'd be able to predict something.


But what you reveal with your non-answer is that by the YEC "model", everything is completely arbitrary and also could change at any second on a whim --- because that's what god wanted.


This is the antithesis of science, not that I expect you to understand that --- YECs don't seem to understand much of anything about science.


But thanks for another example of why YECism should never replace real science in classrooms.
