Holy damn but this thread is like reading a script for the next sequel of "Hot Tub Time Machine".    :unsure:

I have no interest in sex with preteens. 30-somethings are about my speed.

Is that why your wife kicked you out and divorced you?

And maybe next time, just answer the question rather than being snarky. Seems the one who's playing dumb is you.

Disagree.  He isn't playing being dumb.  Davie-dip is the real deal.

OK so I have to do some work proving to you the extent and characteristics of this continent sized sandstone layer ...

evidence of your high speed mind running circles around us, like a headless chook with its arse on fire.

If that's not in the memescape it sure should be.   :happydance:

That's what you spent days arguing. Your argument at the time was that since we describe measurements by using our base 10 numerical system, that means the feet/inches system is base 10. You were adamant that the feet/inches system couldn't be base 12, and that people who were telling you it was base 12 were idiots.

It was fucking hilarious. Some of your greatest tard ever.

*waits for vehement denial that he ever said any such thing*

IIRC Dopey was also arguing for his "pyramid inch" standard to prove how special the Pyramids are.

100% sure it was Davie-dip, 90% sure it was the old IIDB

This is weird.

I just went to AIG to check out the stromatolite article.  Hadn't been there in some time and found

1.  AIG now requires you to create an account with them to view articles.  You can log in with Facebook or Twitter but the software still creates your own account and tries to spam your email with AIG crap
2. I signed in with Facebook, created the account, searched for "stromatolites" and found a new article (Sept 1 2017) titled "Stromatolites--Rare Reminders of a Lost World".  However when I selected the link I got a message "Access to this content is restricted.

Anyone else have the same experience?  Is this their way of hiding the new heretical article?
I saw that article you mention is locked. Tried to access it the other day, but CBF'd making an AiG account. The article I was referring to is this one: https://answersingenesis.org/biology/microbiology/survey-of-microbial-composition-and-mechanisms-of-living-stromatolites-of-the-bahamas-and-australia/


Thanks.  Still curious they have locked articles unless they really don't want anyone to see them.  Too embarrassing I suppose.

Hey I just found a nifty page on the Sauk sequence. It has pictures, so Dave won't have to read any Reverse Swahili Pig Latin.

This one shows southwestern Colorado at the peak of the marine transgression. IOW, the edge of the water here is also the limit of the Tapeats in that area. The red circle is Baker's Bridge.

And this one shows the North American and Canadian areas covered by the complete Sauk sequence.

IOW, this would be the limits of any Tapeats-equivalent layers in that part of the world.

Didn't we go through this whole goat rope with Davie-dip and the St. Peter sandstone?  You saw how much he learned out of that one.
12
In that case we're all your buddies, because we're all catastrophists in the same way that Ager is.

Plus we all think Dave's a fuckwit. 
13
Also the gradual shift in geology from strict uniformitarianism to catastrophism has been the direct result of the work of creationists.

(cough cough) Missouri geology.  Dave's still too much of a coward to discuss it.    :yes:
14
Yes well. Creationists are not known for their useful contributions to science.
Actually you're wrong.  Creationists founded modern science.  Recently there have been a fair number of  professional scientists reject Darwinism and adopt what they call "the third way."  One major cause of this is the work of creationists.
Also the gradual shift in geology from strict uniformitarianism to catastrophism has been the direct result of the work of creationists.
Wow.
Every single sentence there is dead wrong.
Quite an accomplishment!

Nah.  I've seen him go whole weeks posting nothing but incorrect lies and bullshit.

Hey this is funny. :grin:

I ran a search for stromatolites on AiG and, sure enough, they have recognised that they have a problem. They have (or at least Snelling has) even admitted that stromatolites are confirmed as far back as the Lower Archaean, around 3.5 billion years ago on the Evilutionist Global Conspiracy Timescale. And, they have admitted that stromatolite reefs take a long time to grow, and they only have about 1600 "pre-Flood" years to deal with all the pre-Cambrian strata. So, what to do?

Well, and hold onto your gasters here lest they be flabbered out of reach, they have decided there is only one way to deal with the situation: make shit up! :cheer: They have done this very enthusiastically, to the point where they're arguably committing heresy.

They want the pre-Cambrian sedimentary strata to be laid down in "the Day 3 Great Regression", which is what they call it when God supposedly raised the land out of the water, and lotsa water ran off, causing massive erosion in the process. The early stromatolites are in these strata, so the stromatolites have to come first.

The result of this clusterfuck is that they are now proposing that God created complete stromatolite reefs, with real live cells, on Day 2. They can't fit them in anywhere else, so Day 2 it has to be. This is in spite of the Bible clearly saying that God did not create life in the oceans until Day 5.

Answers in Genesis no longer cares what the Bible says. They have gone and jumped the shark, and are now writing their own creation myth in direct contradiction of the Bible.

Any comments on this, Dave?

Hey Dave, I found a new source of creotard. :clap:

Noah's Flood: The Key to Correct Interpretation of Earth History by John Baumgardner, Ph.D.


Holy moly that's some seriously condensed Creotard.  It's a Gish Gallop on steroids.

I see Dave is reduced to lurking on the thread, dodging all evidence and just popping up occasionally to make another short stupid claim.

Some things never do change.

Let's summarize this thread ...

1) Testy did NOT explain anything
2) A creationist - me - raised everyone's awareness about Sloss and megasequences ... you're welcome!
3) We discussed sandstones in various parts of N. America (and Israel) which people like Snelling say were all deposited at the same time.  I think that's probably true and that little blurb from Ager (if accurate) supports this idea ... but it is difficult to prove given the nature of geology
4) To my way of thinking, there is no way you can get a continent sized sandstone layer that's incredibly flat and incredibly thin with small, calm, placid regional inundations over millions of years ... especially when you try to explain the 30 foot boulders at the base of the layers.  The only way you get that is with some sort of massive global cataclysm ... which is very difficult to model, which is why it's taking so much time and money by creationists.


LOL!  I'd forgotten about Dave's little "summaries" where he lies about 99% of the thread and pats himself on the back boasting how his clever and decisive arguments won the day.   :p

Hey Dave, ready to discuss the geology of Missouri yet?



Or are your shorts still badly stained from the last time?

Hey this looks useful:

Craton formation: Internal structure inherited from closing of the early oceans

Quote from: Abstract
The closure of ancient oceans created a dynamic setting suitable for craton formation via the thickening of continental material over a mantle downwelling. This process subjected the thickening lithosphere to extensive deformation, forming internal structure that can be preserved over the lifetime of the craton. Recent seismic imaging of cratonic lithosphere has led to observations of anomalous features colloquially known as midlithospheric discontinuities. These discontinuities are attributed to a range of sources, including the lithosphere-asthenosphere boundary, melt accumulation, and phase transitions. However, the internal structure imaged within these cratons might be reflective of their formation. In particular, the orientation and nature of the variable depths of the midlithospheric discontinuities suggest a more complicated origin such as that which could be introduced during the formation and thickening phase of cratonic lithosphere. Here, we present geodynamic models demonstrating the internal structures produced during the formation of cratonic lithosphere as well as new seismological observations of midlithospheric discontinuities in the West African craton, together with reassessment of midlithospheric discontinuities observed in the North American, South African, Fennoscandia, and Australian cratons. We suggest that the midlithospheric discontinuities observed in these cratons could be remnants of deformation structures produced during the formation of the cratons after ancient oceans closed.
Any chance of a dastardly octohatter grabbing that one for the plebs? :parrot:

Hmm ... my buddy Derek Ager ... who I've quoted before ...

Quote
British geologist Derek Ager in his book The Nature of the Stratigraphical Record4 marvelled at the way sedimentary rocks layers persisted for thousands of kilometres across continents. Like a blanket, they are relatively thin compared with the area they cover. https://creation.com/continent-wide-sedimentary-strata

You can't even explain the distribution of sediment in your own state you dumbass.   ::)
21
That's pretty much the situation we have in mainstream geology classrooms these days.

LOL!  Backed into a corner by his own stupidity, Davie-dip resorts to the usual empty bluster and bravado.  Same as it ever was.   :p

Still too much of a chickenshit to discuss the geology of his own state too I see.
22
Has Brave Sir Davie badgered off again? 

Why is it every time someone asks him to discuss specific geologic formations instead of his usual vague generalities his testicles shrink 3 sizes?    ::)
23
Hey here's a question: if cratons are just stuck together out of lots of random old bits, which seems to be the case, why are they so stable?
Jesus glue

Jebons.

Easy. Fossilised sauropod poo.

(forehead slap) Darn, I need to think outside the Evolution box.   :p

Here's a good overview of the geology of Missouri

Geology of Missouri

Maybe Dave can explain how his Majik FLUD distributed the different materials this way?



I particularly like the rock formations at Elephant Rock State Park

Quote
Elephant Rocks State Park in southeastern Missouri exhibits the effects of rock fractures well. While initial cracks formed in the granite as it cooled over 1 billion years ago, during periods of continental uplift over the course of Missouri's history, the larger cracks formed in the rocks, fracturing all of the underlying granite into cubes. As the rocks were slowly uplifted and exposed at the surface, wind and rain slowly eroded, rounded, and enlarged the fractures to produce the large oval shaped boulders that are known as the Elephant Rocks (Seeger 2008).



I'm sure Dave can FLUDsplain these formations too.   :)
