Interview With An Honest Young Earth Creationist
hat tip Lemons and Lollipops
Beaj: Hi John, now you promise to answer all my quesions sincerely and honestly, correct?
John: As God is my witness.
Beaj: Great. Now tell me about your beliefs. How old is the earth and do you believe in evolution?
John: I am a Young Earth Creationist. God created the earth and universe and man all less than 8,000 years ago. Evolution is a crock because God created man in his image. The bible says it is true, so it must be true.
Beaj: But all the scientific evidence points that evolution is fact and the earth and universe is ancient. What do you think about scientific evidence?
John: The scientific evidence can't be true. Besides, there are lots of holes in evolution theory, for one thing it is only a theory.....
Beaj: ...I thought you agreed to be honest. You don't really understand evolution theory do you?
John: No I don't really understand it, and I don't really care to. Unless someone argues against it, I'm not interested. It goes against my literal bible, so I don't want to deal with it. Sorry about being deceitful.
Beaj: Why do you think that there are no scientific studies that prove the earth is young or disprove evolution?
John: There are lots I thought. Lots of good Christians present holes in evolution and ancient earth theory. There are many websites run by good Christians. Why would they lie?
Beaj: Again, I thought you were going to try to be honest and forget about mentioning "holes." If there was merit to a young earth there would be lots of ways to measure it. There would be a way for science to refute the age of fossils and actually measure them as dates of less than 8,000 years, for example. There would be lots of evidence and scientific studies that question or even refute evolution. There are none.
John: Well maybe God put these fossils on the earth to make them appear old.
Beaj: Why would he do that? He wants followers doesn't he? Why would he leave so much evidence that the earth is ancient and that man evolved? And no evidence that the earth is young and that man was created less than 8,000 years ago.
John: Good questions. I don't have all the answers. Only God can answer these types of questions.
Beaj: So you admit that your argument against science is purely based on faith, and you basically have to ignore scientific fact in order to believe what you believe.
John: I guess so. If what you are telling me is true. Are you sure there are no scientific studies that prove the earth is young or that man only goes back 8,000 years?
Beaj: Yes I am sure.
John: Well then, it must be the work of the devil. There is no other explanation possible.
Beaj: Thanks for the interview.
John: You are welcome, and God bless.
Note: John, the honest Young Earth Creationist, was purely fictional and does not exist.
