Later in the Old Testament The Bible clearly states that Earth is fixed and unmovable with four corners. I'm sure you all know what happened to Galileo for saying Earth was not the center of the universe.
I've never met a Creationist who did not frame this as an argument for believing in God or not. As though to believe in evolution was the same as not believing in God.
This is refreshing: ThankGodForEvolution.com/
Haha! When someone tries to justify Genesis being truth, I bust out the "God created the earth" first (in darkness) and then he made day and night, when we now know factually that it requires a star to create a planet, and therefore the earth couldn't have been created before day and night.
Though, like a hollywood movie done today about a real world event, for it to be popular it has to be 90% rubbish to keep people's attention and to use contexts relevant to the lives of the readers.
So, you're saying christianity is a crappy religion because it is essentially based on some popular hollywood movie?
Convictions are more dangerous foes of truth than lies.
The better thing to do would be to travel back in time to know for sure (with dr. Emmett Brown's machine or to pass arround the the sun in hyperexponential speed or with Superman spinning arround the Earth at light speed? lol). Till there, to live in harmony is the better thing to do. Because we can't proove any thories (without any doubts and with a absolute certitude), such "fights" are trivial and futile.
However, like many have already posed in this thread, your belief is your belief. You don't have to side with science, but to me it does seem more logical. I wont hound you for opposing to the math.

I will continue to call creationists retarded because that is what they are. Not just because of the stupidity of the YEC position. I think the Flat Earth position is FAR more stupid, but I have no problem with them. Why? Because they do not try to legislate their position, nor do they try to act like they are speaking for all "true" Christians. YECs, however, do. They are no better than Islamic imperialists.

Welp, guess adult, mature conversation has been thrown out the window. As much as I hate walking away and not sticking up for someone else, I can only contain myself so much. I do not wish to stoop to your level, so I leave it to the rest of the people here to make their expressions known. From one Christian to another, I pray that you stop this harsh judgement of another group...something the Bible teaches for us not to do. Good day, sir.
