While I can accept that some people like to believe in God and some kind of creation I find the young earthers to be plain stupid. So yes.

I get confused by all these newfangled, hyphenated labels. I have always thought that good old-fashioned Creationists were simply people who believed in God, but apparently they also *cannot* believe in evolution? Is that right? And "young Earth creationists"? Are they like "Intelligent Design" people?

I think people who flat-out deny any form of evolution, even as a tool that God used in creation, are situationally ignorant, however smart they may be in other areas. Of course, as a Christian myself, I also believe that the most significant form of wisdom comes from God, so Earthly definitions of it are foolish by comparison.

Young Earth creationism (YEC) is the religious belief that Heaven, Earth, and life on Earth were created by a direct act of God dating between 6,000[1] and 10,000 years ago.

YECs believe that the Earth is "young", on the order of 6,000 to 10,000 years old,[27] rather than the age of 4.6 billion years calculated by modern geology using geochronological methods including radiometric dating. YECs typically derive their range of figures using the ages given in the genealogies and other dates in the Bible,
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 6/22/08 - 12:30:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
YECs believe that life was created by God 'each after their kind' in the universe's first six normal-length (24-hour) days. Additionally, they believe that the biblical account of Noah's flood is historically true, maintaining that there was a worldwide flood (circa 2349 BC) that destroyed all terrestrial life except that which was saved on Noah's Ark. (Barry Setterfield proposed in 1999 that the flood occurred much earlier around 3536 BC.) They assert that this global flood caused a multitude of geological features that scientists regard as evidence of an old Earth.

YEC is normally characterized as opposing evolution, though it also opposes many claims and theories in the fields of physics and chemistry (especially absolute dating methods), geology, astronomy, cosmology, molecular biology, genomics, linguistics, anthropology, archaeology and any other fields of science that have developed theories or made claims incompatible with the Young Earth version of world history. YECs are fundamentally opposed to any explanation for the origins of anything which replaces God as the universal creator as stated in the Bible, whether it be the origins of biological diversity, the origins of life or the origins of the universe itself.
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 6/22/08 - 12:31:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
This has led some YECs to criticize intelligent design, a proposal which some see as an alternative form of creationism, for not taking a stand on the age of the Earth, special creation, or even the identity of the designer. Some YECs see this as too compromising.

In the English-speaking world, one of the most well known estimates in modern times is that of Archbishop James Ussher (1581–1656), who proposed a date of Sunday, October 23, 4004 BCE, in the Julian calendar. He placed the beginning of this first day of Creation, and hence the exact time of Creation, at the previous nightfall. See the Ussher chronology.

i believe in creationism, and i am far from being a moron
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 6/22/08 - 1:49:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
People that pretend that there's a clear objective definition of intelligence are really really stupid.

Is the term 'dumber' neccessarily linked to a clear objective definition of intelligence in English?

Hmmm...
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 6/22/08 - 4:15:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, they just hve different beliefs and people should respect that.
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 6/22/08 - 7:13:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, because they don't know how to question anything.
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 6/22/08 - 9:51:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
That fact that they believe in a "God" should tell you enough right away.

No, they do question things. They questions factual things.
Which is worse than not questioning at all.

No, but what I do think is stupid is when people think evelution can't be because of creationist, vise versa. You know Darwin believed in God.

this is more reasonable- - the ones that just can't understand evolution and thinks that god just made elephants and rhino in their modern form and put them here attract the negative attention I think
