Why do you write with all the random punctuation marks?

American politics really mess up people's heads around the world. The party leader of the recently arrested former president made a video from al-Jazeera, and rumour has spread that al-Jazeera is a terrorist organisation and it will attack Brazil allied with the deposed party. I mean, it sounds Arabic, so it must be terrorist, not?

It's imaginable how this kind of paranoia appears in the country of 9/11 and Middle Eastern bombing, but for a country housing more Lebanese people than Lebanon (one of them our president), with minor aspects of Middle Eastern culture absorbed by the general population, this outright association is pretty strange.

You're just jealous.  Lol

I blame modern television and movies for blurring the lines. I see people praising actors as if. They are the actual character they play. Is a a good joke at best.

What im trying to say is that it is a choice between two competing systems. Some people will swing based on just assumption.  Either way nothing is proven to a degree that leave the other behind. Until it does I would rather trust people of god.

The problem here is that science isn't an exact science. Its a system that has limitations. One example of this is the calendar. Math doesn't actually explain what is actually happening in our solar system. Its a set of rules that comes close. So math isn't at the core of the truth. Its a representation of it. What people do is accept the math as an essence and try to explain everything using it.

Yeah, all knowledge systems have limitations - even theology. What you've said is a truism that science itself even acknowledges.

I can see a global flood happening. A fossil record isn't going to show something that lasted only 40 days. Beside that or compliment to it. Ive seen on TV and various other places. That the the fossil records show sea creatures on tops of mountains. For all we know. Those fossils made it that high because of a flood. Forensic science might be wrong. Who knows for sure.

Hold on a second, a regional or global flood that was serious enough to gather 2 of every creature in a boat on account of killing the rest, leaves no fossil record whatsoever? That is a gross misunderstanding of how fossil records work.
Who knows what is sitting at the bottoms of oceans. They cant even find Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Thats with sophisticated electronics on board.
You expect to much from people. The world isnt as smart as you make it out to be.

If there was a sudden flood that killed creatures all at once, we would find a jumble of such fossils in one layer, as opposed to finding creatures that died 300 million years ago always at a different (older) layer than a primate that died off 3 million years ago

Yeah, that's the killer. If you really want to disprove evolution using fossils, you need to find a rabbit in the Precambrian layer, or something like that.
And you would need science to do that? Carbon dating as a system could be flawed. I haven't seen evidence that its in some perfected stage. Only believers in it thing this.
