It's like déjà vu all over again :roll:

Reading this thread over the past few days it's become more and more obvious that amkerman was simply Googling to find relevant supporting arguments, and failing to realise they didn't support what he was arguing, and often positively contradicted his position.

The kindest interpretation I can find is that amkerman is so convinced of the rightness of his argument a) he assumes it must be logically sound, and b) that any criticisms pointed out flaws in his argument must be wrong; it's just a question of determining in what way they are wrong.

Which is pretty much the religious approach to most things.

A thinking creationist is an oxymoron. A non-thinking creationist is just a moron.

Based on your past success, I wonder if you'd like to play double or quits and predict how long it will be before Amkerman raises this argument in yet another thread, and whether when he does he will have amended it based on criticism here, or disregarded it completely? :naughty2:
