I've never taken Young Earthers seriously, but why is it that all of human history fits perfectly into that 6,000 year window?
>>
It doesn't when you remember they also believe the entire world was underwater for a year c.2300 BC
>>
>>6302910
whats a young earther?
>>
Because that's typically how far back Mesopotamian histories went, to about 3000 BC which is around the time writing became widespread. Ancient Hebrew biblical writers generally inherited this tradition and had a good idea about the timeframe they were working with for the "modern world" that in Mesopotamian tradition began about 3000 BC.

they say earth is ~6000 years old

>why is it that all of human history fits perfectly into that 6,000 year window
what makes you think it does? Gobekli Tepe is ~12k years old, friend
written records being young doesn't mean anything that happened before them just never actually did
>>
and what do you call people who believe that humans came onto earth via asteroids or some shit?
>>

theres a glitch with egypytian long/short chronology that is useful to exploit if you want to add shit into history to fit and make yourself from a legendary heritage. and sieze power.


thats why its called temporal powers

you control the timeline. therefore the paradigm.

a sect of believers in some mythology that makes no sense to me

>>6302945
Fundamentalist Christians. Also Creationists.

They just took the age of everyone in the bible and came up with a shit number like 6000 years, though the number fluctuates between 5000 and 12 000 as the fundamentalists can seem to agree on how long some people lived. According to some, there's people in the bible who lived 250 years or more.

Transpermia
Sounds gayer then it is, unlike the trans movement this makes a lot of sense

and that shit that humans evolved from Apes is more believable or what?
and mammals became king of the planet because the real kings (dinosaurs) of the animal kingdom died by some meteorite

what would you say if both were a result of an alien race doing experiments and then dumping them on earth

or what if all of the above is true and related?

Humans and Apes evolved from a common ancestor. A huge fossil record confirms
>and mammals became king of the planet because the real kings (dinosaurs) of the animal kingdom died by some meteorite
We've found the caldera

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence

>Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence
not a fan of this guys quote and you can't really proof this in any way

it is not impossible though that an alien race much more intelligent than us and other creatures in the universe dabbled with the thought of creating "artificial" life
just look at humanity trying to play god and create robots in resembles of themselves, same thing

maybe it got out of control or they weren't satisfied, man did you guys never play Starcraft?

at the very least I don't think there is one cause and origin for humanity and there are other humans in the universe on other planets
>>
>>6303237
>it is not impossible
But there's simply no evidence for it, making it conjecture, no more or less a scientific theory than young-Earth creationism, and no more or less history than StarCraft

Evidence that a meteor wiped out the dinosaurs IS extraordinary. We've found the caldera, whose radiocarbon dating checks out to the precise moment in the fossil records when all the dinosaur fossils disappear and are replaced with giant mammal fossils. All the evidence points to a rock the size of Mt Everest smacking into the Yucatan peninsula and wreaking catastrophic havoc on an animal line which had already been in decline. These aren't just words on a screen, they're assertions all backed by hard evidence.

The earth was made in 6000 years and 1000 years is how long it took for earth to chill the fuck out until it was a full planet.

Because Civ games start year 4000 bc?

Just one more turn.

>>6303073
That's the real reason I have a problem with creationism. At least the whole young earth 6k years or whatever ones.
If you actually read chronicles, it is incredibly abstract. It's obviously a chronicle of the families, but not nearly as concise as you'd think it would be. At least, as you'd think it would be after these people tell you it's irrefutable evidence.
Of course, it all stems from the days in genesis being literal days as well. It seems insulting to God for a religious follower jump to their own conclusions. Young earth is never mentioned in the Bible, why do these people have an obsession with it?

A common symptom of brain damage.
>>
6,000 years is about the longest period humans have gone so far with an unbroken line of record keeping. Essentially we've been living with the ability to trace back some civilization or society until around that time period, and anything before then has no surviving record that we can decipher or interpret. So as long as we living in a civilization are concerned, our existence as people living with the same basic concepts and views of life stops around 6,000 years ago.

That's essentially the idea anyway, which makes sense as to why early Christians and Jews establish this logic. That is the furthest back they were able to find in recorded history of people living in functioning societies. Both Jews and early Christians were compilers of records and information.

Because it’s fundamentally true

>humans and apes evolved from a common ancestor

That implies to some people (brainlets) we are fundamentally different from apes. We are apes, too.
