9-Year-Old Defeats Creation Museum

Alec Burchick must not have visited the Creation Museum.

The 9-year-old boy claims to have discovered a spearhead that is 6,000 year old.

But that’s unpossible. The world was just created then. No one would’ve been around to create the spearhead, and the “European explorers” the piece refers to would not have existed.

We can thank Ken Ham for my new education!

(Thanks to Walker for the link!)

    Careful, Hemant, the cretinists might think you’re serious.

    aw, JHVH put it there to test your faith…

    JHVH sounds like it should be the name of a heavy metal band.

    Bonus points for using “unpossible”, Hemant.

    “When his mom heard about it, understandably, she freaked.”

    Really, is “freaked” the most journalisticly responsible term? Damn, we as a country are getting dumber by the minute.

    I must have heard that wrong.

    No, it’s no problem for creationists. See, when God created Adam and Eve 6000 years ago, he provided them with spearheads so they could kill animals for sacrifice.

    Wait just a minute! This boy’s discovery is incontrovertible proof that the Garden of Eden was in…Florida? Sacrilege!

    ;)

    That boy looks so intrigued about that spearhead. Plus, he seems pretty bright.

    We may have a future ally.

    The Discovery and National Geographic channels have done well to sow the seeds of doubt into his mind. Let us hope that this discovery will help those seeds sprout.

    In Florida? No wonder Adam and Eve left – it wasn’t God, they just couldn’t take the humidity.

    I’m sorry to break it to you… It’s not a Christian belief that the world is only 5,000 years old, or whatever you people think. I’m not against atheists, but I just think it’s sad that websites like these only use their biased opinions to trash a religion they don’t know nothing about. =D

    I’m not sure: Maybe that’s a Catholic Belief.

    Jonathan Chan, live under a rock much?

    First of all, you’re the only one who’s even mentioned “Christians,” so I have no idea what prompted you to write that post. Second, it is most certainly a belief among certain Evangelical Christians (nominally YECs) that the earth is a mere 6,000 years old, despite all the data and evidence pointing towards a much older planet. In particular Ken Ham and his Creation Museum, the only Christian directly mentioned here, DO promulgate this idiocy. But if creationism’s not an idea worth trashing I don’t know what is. You are wrong on all accounts I am afraid.

    6000 years old? It must be made of unobtainium!

    Great article, but did anyone else think the plugs for the TV shows at the end sounded a bit disingenuous? I was left wondering how much the paid him to mention those shows.

    As for Jon Chan, Wake up! Close to half of Americans believe that humans and dinosaurs co-existed. More than half of Americans think evolution is ‘just a theory’. Were not fighting against belief in a god/gods, were fighting against the ignorance promoted by those beliefs.

    Jonathan Chan,

    Yes, because Catholics are definitely not Christians and French Fries are most certainly not potatoes.

  • Doubting Thomas

    As an ex-Catholic, I can say that it’s not really a Catholic thing to believe in a 6,000-year-old earth. Perhaps some do, but it’s not an official Catholic belief as far as I know. Even Pope John Paul II said that evolution was not incompatible with Catholic beliefs. It seems that most YEC’s are of the Protestant persuasion.
