THATS UTTERLY RIDICULOUS YOU BLASPHEMOUS NIT! I have never heard a stranger theory. Obviously god thumped them from Mount Ararat to Australia. They didn't die in the landing because Australia was full of marshamallows. SO there. --[[User:Storytellershrink|<span style="color:green">'''*Gen. S.T.

What's this business of PJR's where he claims Information Theory prevents evolution from being possible? Does anyone know what the heck he's talking about? --Kels 20:35, 15 December 2007 (EST)

I think it is linked to this little masterpiece of an article. Apparently, there's a particular kind of Creationist Intelligent Design Information Theory which posits that information can only originate in an intelligence, which in turn means that all information in the universe can be traced back to one original intelligence. Or something. Plus some stuff about there being information in DNA. Peculiar to say the least. --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 20:41, 15 December 2007 (EST)
http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/information/infotheory.html may be of some use --Shagie 20:42, 15 December 2007 (EST)
Also of interest are this and this. A big part of the information aspect comes from Richard Dawkins appearing "unable" to answer a question about information posed by creationists.--Bayesupdate 19:08, 22 December 2007 (EST)

reasons

"(due to the decay rates of certain isotopes)"

Why bother with any, since then the article would be really long? It's all linked up anyway. Maybe we should "see also" that evidence for an old earth article? This one is almost a TOC for it... humanUser talk:Human 22:47, 16 December 2007 (EST)

What does "TOC" mean? --Wandalise me Bohdan! RA talk stalkOver 225 edits! 05:37, 22 December 2007 (EST)
Sorry, TOC = Table of Contents. humanUser talk:Human 18:48, 22 December 2007 (EST)

"Bibliology" is the study of books. The study of the Bible is "Biblical theology", like it or not.AKjeldsen

Well, excuse me, Mr. Fruitcake. --Wandalise me Bohdan! RA talk stalkOver 270 edits! 18:01, 22 December 2007 (EST)
Beg pardon? --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 18:07, 22 December 2007 (EST)
You heard me. I called you a fruitcake. --Wandalise me Bohdan! RA talk stalkOver 270 edits! 18:09, 22 December 2007 (EST)
So I gather. Could you elaborate: "Fruitcake" as in "crazy person" or as in "homosexual"? --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 18:11, 22 December 2007 (EST)
"Fruitcake" as in a "horrible, dense pastry everyone despises". Which basically makes you a walking booby prize. --Wandalise me Bohdan! RA talk stalkOver 270 edits! 18:18, 22 December 2007 (EST)
Hey! I'm making fruitcakes this Christmas! Lurker 18:58, 22 December 2007 (EST)
Ok, I see. Well, personally, I'm a great fan of fruitcakes, Dresdner Stollen in particular, so the "everyone despises" might be a little hyperbolic.
Anyway, is there anything in particular that has occasioned this, I imagine, vitriolic comparison of me with a otherwise quite excellent type of pastry? --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 18:29, 22 December 2007 (EST)
You bludgeoned me with your mind. Then you go and ruin a great "vitriolic comparison" with your joy of fruitcake! You're worse than fruitcake, you're Vegamite.
Ew. Well, I'm sorry I had to bring my awesum powerz of cognition to bear against you. I'll try to be more careful next time. Nods.gif --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 18:55, 22 December 2007 (EST)

Wouldn't "Secular Biblical study" be better than "theology"? humanUser talk:Human 19:14, 22 December 2007 (EST)
I suppose so. Or "Biblical criticism", maybe. Depends on which part one wants to emphasise. --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 19:49, 22 December 2007 (EST)
Well, you're the expert, so I defer to you - pick what you think is best and change if necessary? Thanks, humanUser talk:Human 20:13, 22 December 2007 (EST)

How did those Kangaroos get all the way over to Australia from the Ark? Daecon 00:47, 3 July 2008 (EDT)

Obviously, Noah had a smaller motorboat stowed on the Ark, which he loaned to the kangaroos. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 00:33, 3 July 2008 (EDT)
