    Giant sloth bones with deep cut marks dated to 30,000 years ago. Only humans could make those kind of cuts, using stone tools.

    The dating is most likely wrong.

    What you really mean is you can't accept any answer that goes against your dogma.

    Why should I accept made up dates that do not make sense?

    Yeah Hinds, we all know you believe the earth is only a few thousand years old, and that therefore any date older than (say) 10,000 years ago must be wrong.

    And we will continue to know you believe that without you posting your faith held religious position in every science thread that mentions a date over 8,000 BCE.

    So please shut up talking about your faith based religious views in the science forum.

    Get out and stay out.

    It is nothing more than belief that causes people to claim millions and billions of years in age. There is no definite proof of those ages, so it is not science either. Therefore, I have a right to challenge anything that is not science, because this is the Science Forum, not a faith based belief forum.

    Wrong.

    And we have been over this issue before. With the mods.

    The science on this IS settled.

    Basically the ONLY people who disagree are creationists. (or crazy people)

    And they (you) do so for religious reasons not scientific ones.

    The earth is OLD, Billions of years old.

    This is not in ANY way disputed in the scientific literature.

    Your claims otherwise ARE religious, and ARE wrong, and have no place here.

    I WILL report each and every one of your posts disputing scientific dating
    in this forum if you don't stop.

    And on past evidence the mods WILL remove your posts.

    It would be nice if they removed you too but we can't have everything.


    It would be better if you just stopped your stupid comments in every
    science thread that contradicts your religion.

    It is not stupid to comment that there is no solid proof that the earth is older than a few thousand years. There is no historical evidence of an old earth either. Even though most scientist accept the fact that the earth and the universe are billions of years old, the scientist have been wrong in the past and they can be wrong again.

    These scientist that wish to believe in an old universe and earth ignore any evidence that seem to put limits on the age of the earth to just a few thousand years. I think everyone that comes to the Science Forum should be aware of these facts, so they don't fall for information that may prove to be false. We should remain open to the idea that the earth is not millions or billions of years old until it is proved scientifically one way or the other.

    Even if the universe is billions of years old that does not mean dinosaurs have to be millions of years old. And it does not prove humans are older than about 6000 years either.
