    Snail find verifies creation story

    Discussion in 'Debate Room' started by Steerpike, Mar 23, 2016.

    At least, that's what this guy in Texas said. Apparently the snails were swept onto land while Noah, his family, and two of every animal including every type of dinosaur, were chilling in the ark. When the flood waters receded the snails were left behind to fossilize.

    The link worked for me. Although I don't really understand the purpose of the article. The author basically is reporting a story that they believe is completely ridiculous, and then shooting it pieces. How is that news? Is it supposed to be a humor piece? I really don't get it.

    I saw the story on other news sites, particularly "news" sites sympathetic to creationist or intelligent design viewpoints, so I think it is fair game to point out how silly it is.

    I don't have a problem with people who are sympathetic to creationist/intelligent design viewpoints, or even people who don't agree with something they're reporting on but want to give both sides. However, this person didn't really seem worth reporting on, and the author seemed to think it was pretty ridiculous too. I guess it makes it seem like the author is just intentionally picking out the dumbest person that they disagree with to make fun of them, which doesn't seem like the best source of a news story. Oh well...who am I to judge, to each is own, I suppose!

    But...but...snails don't live in the water. I mean, they like rain, but when I lived in California they swarmed all over the land, eating everybody's plants.

    I realize that trying to apply logic to this is nonsense...but... I don't even get the non-logic logic.

    The flood must have swept them from the land they live on, into the water, and them carried them to new land. Or something.

    Yeah we have them all over in California. Probably transplanted by the Flood but survived instead of dying like their Texas cousins.

    Or they spontaneously came into existence in a jar of peanut butter.

    Haven't you seen the news? They always pick the craziest person to interview, whether it is a redneck or whatever.





    Yep, they always interview the best of the best.

    You should. Snails are actually one of the most dangerous species on the planet. At least according to one video I saw yesterday on FB about the most dangerous animals...

    The UFO guy has a black belt in vacuousness. I wonder if his parents are proud of the way he turned out. Do they show this clip to their friends, saying, "That's my boy!" Or do they cringe, change their names, and move to another state without telling him? Or do they simply return to their home planet?

    Crap that UFO guy brings up a good point. They could be made of anything, even water. I never thought of aliens made of water before. Dude that is wild and so creative!

    Dude... It's like you actually have an idea of some life form that is already largely made out of water or something...

    That's crazy though, aliens don't exist.

    This one sounds outlandish even by Young Earth Creationist standards.
