    They don't know how old it is. It was probaly killed in the worldwide flood.

    Just out of curiosity, how do you explain the mile deep layers of salt under the hard cover under the great lakes? A world wide flood would not have gotten to that layer since there was a hard rock cover dome OVER the salt.

    Nice discovery. I wonder how large it is. Also where do they see this alleged nervous system evidence. It is not clear from the image.

    LOL No one knows exactly how old it is. But one thing we do know for sure. It's more than 6,000 years old.

    You can use that master-level mind and come up with your own dating method that PHYSICALLY proves otherwise, then go pick up your Nobel Prize.

    Why should I have to explain it? I am not a geologist.

    RJ is proof of evolution. He hasn't fully evolved into homo sapiens yet. He's about 100,000 years behind most of us.

    Then stop trying to tell geologists they are wrong, because you simply are not qualified to do so by your own admission.

    If i haven't evolved, wouldn't that be proof against evil-lution?

    It is young age geologists themselves that are saying the old age geologists are wrong. I am just letting you guys know there are differences of opinion among geologists just like there are among us. So doesn't that pretty much prove they don't really know how old these things are and are simply using their belief systems to speculate on these ages that they pull out of their arse?

    But you have explanations for everything else. You say the Earth is 6K years old. Where would miles deep layers of salt accumulate in 6K years? And that under a solid rock top. That can't happen in such a short amount of time.

    Of course it can! All you need are liberal applications of handy dandy god goo! Available from all good churches, synagogues and mosques. It'll even cure your galaxy rotation rates without need for dark matter or tweaks to Newtonian dynamics. I'd be willing to bet it even cures piles, warts, scurvy and mange. Doesn't cure mildew though, you have to kill pigeons for that.

    God does a lot of things in one day, which is a short time to us, but plenty of time for God.
