Ok 6 days, excuse my ignorance. With so many 'Christians' playing sports and shops open it's easy to forget that Sunday is supposed to be a religious rest day.
The post above me explains why there are fossils in high mountains so I wont repeat that. I will add that proof of what he is saying can be found by the fact that the Himalaya are still rising, by a couple of cm or an inch each year.
That's why there's fossils in those mountains, the land started in the oceans and were pushed up through millions of years of tectonic pressure.
This as well as evolution is a proven fact, there's no disputing it.
I'm an atheist as you probably know but I'm open to the possibility that I might be wrong and there is a God. I'd be as surprised as you would be if there wasn't a God but as it's something either of us can prove or disprove we only have our faith.
I really don't care what faith people have but when they discount a proven fact because something in their faith suggests it might not be true, that is the definition of ignorance and I can't respect that. My only response to that is to ask people to actually read the bible, cover to cover (I haven't but others have) and tell me it all makes sense with no contradictions.
Scripture that old (assuming it's true) has to have holes, especially with so many writers.
Why can't you accept the fact that some of your book might be wrong?
