Comment on Catholic School Fires Math Teacher for Expressing Atheistic Views by Allen Roy.
This site is all about educating the SDA population about what is really going on so the they can do something about it. what can be done? The board of LSU is chose at constituency meetings. The member of the constituency can only make informed decisions when they have been exposed to what is really going on. Most of the SDA believe what Sean and others on this board believe, but don’t know what has been going on at LSU. Even clear up here in Montana, I’ve found more and more church members who are becoming aware of this issue and are voicing the desire that there needs to be a house cleaning at LSU. It will come. It is inevitable. Those at LSU are continually shooting themselves in the foot, becuase they think that everyone believes like they do. They have been able to keep a lid on things for they have controlled what got out to the SDAs. But now the lid has been blown off, and the SDA people are not going to just sit back and believe what LSU says. The Board is going to have to do something, or they will find themselves out. The Administration is going to have to do something or they are going to be out. The Biology Dept. is going to have to do something or they are going to be out.
Most SDAs are shocked when they hear of what’s been going on. They haven’t realized that this is something that been going on for decades. But now that people have learned what’s what. Things are going to change. No question about it. Either those at LSU will change, or they will quit, or they will be fired. But things will not go on as they have been.

Dr. Ervin Taylor: ‘A truly heroic crusade’
Taylor wrote: “He must reject all of the mainline conclusions of 99.9% of all those scientists who are involved in all isotopic dating methods, and all other types of dating methods including dendrochronology, varve dating, ice core dating, stable isotope studies of ocean cores, and on and on.”
This is pure Argumentum ad Populum. This logical fallacy is common among naturalists when faced with opposition which they are incapable of comprehending.

@Taylor. What utter nonsense! He hasn’t a clue what creationism is about, not to mention science!!
Former LSU student letter reveals professor’s agenda
I attended LSU back in the early 1970’s I remember the same professors (Guy especially) expressing doubts about the creation account and using extra reading books which claimed that the Genesis account was myth based on ancient Middle East pagan myths. This was presented in a way that it was enlightening, a better understanding than the traditional, backward views of the old SDAs. At the time, I was puzzled why this would be taught, but didn’t say anything. Now I can see where all that was leading. Happily, I wasn’t taken in .
Angry Scientists: Publishing on Intelligent Design
The difference between the Flying Spaghetti Monster is that he has never told anyone in any book that he wrote or caused to be written that he created them last Tuesday. In fact the argument goes ‘We don’t know but what we were created last Tuesday by the Flying Spaghetti Monster with fake memories of history built in. You don’t know if your “god” created you last Tuesday.”
Wrong. The God of the Bible walked and talked with Adam and Eve and told them that he had created them and why. He has talked with prophets ever since. So, we do know that God created us approximately 6000 years ago because he told us. All we have to do is believe it.
Or, all we have to do is believe, based on no evidence whatsoever, that the Flying Spaghetti Monster did it. It’s all based on faith.

24 hour day
By definition an hour is 1/24th of the time of one rotation of the planet.
It doesn’t matter how fast the planet is rotating, an hour is always 1/24 of the rotation time.
If you had two planets side by side (planet A and Planet B) and one (planet B) was rotating twice as fast as the other, each planet would still have 24 hours per day/rotation. The difference is that an hour on planet B, when measured by time based on planet A, would be 1/2 the length of time as an hour on planet A. But still, Each planet would have 24 hour days. What matters here is which planet do you live on.
A minute is 1/60 of an hour and a second is 1/60 of a minute. Our Measurements of time is based on the rotation of the planet. The second is based on the minute and the minute is based on the hour and the hour is based on the rotation of the planet. Time is not based on the second or some fraction there of. Nuclear clocks have been set up to try to have a basis to measure time across the universe based on the second. Still even then it is an measurement at only approximates the time of 1/60 of 1/60 of 1/24 of 1 rotation of the planet.
So to saying that the days of the creation week were 24 hours long is really a redundancy. A hour is 1/24 of a day.
As for physics AiG has an excellent summary and explanation found here:
“Do creationists believe in weird science?”
