This is OK for an essay but I don't think it's a mainspace article. ΨΣΔξΣΓΩΙÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 22:58, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Yes, it's OK for an essay. But whether you think it's a mainspace article or not is irrelevant as it is, at least currently, in mainspace. I'll shut up now.--Кřěĵ (ṫåɬк) 02:44, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
I'm agreeing with Weasloid here; this is more essay-like than an article. No one would type this title into the wiki. Sterilesig.svgtalk 21:33, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
Stupid title, insubstantial article. If nobody is prepared to do something with this then I'll delete it within 6 days. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 23:26, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Any objections?[edit]

I feel like this should be moved to essay. Heavy Metal Jesus (\m/ \m/) 03:26, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Would work better as a "fun" type of article.--Zipperback (talk) 04:42, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

I support the move to funspace. There doesn't seem to be much of an "argument" here, so much as poking fun at stupidity. Wehpudicabok (talk) 05:36, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
I object. It's not an essay. It's also not fun or funny. I think illustrating just how wrong you have to be to accept YEC like this is clever. There's a good place for this somewhere. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 09:48, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
On further thought, this is sort of weak. Considering how far off you have to be to compress the history of Earth and the universe into 6,000 years superficially seems meaningful, but that's not what creationists do. The numbers presented in this article are so irrelevant to creationist claims, as interesting as the concept is, that they're propping up a straw man argument. Yes of course 6 thousand is a lot less than 4.54 billion. We've got that covered. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 10:21, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
We already have Branches of science you have to ignore to believe in young Earth creationism. This here thing, though, is a fun bit of snark but the list of examples can easily be a section in a YEC article somewhere. SophieWilder 10:39, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
I think there's possibly something there. At first blush it seems clever, like I said. But I admit I don't understand it or I would have integrated it into that or one of the other articles I cited. If you can make sense of it please take a run at it and show me what you'd do - if there's something there I'd love to add to it. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 10:57, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
