    Signs your getting old?

    My mom died yesterday.
    She was 100 years, 2 months and 8 days
    I'll be 60 next month (assuming.....)
    This post is not for sympathy or condolences -
    it is simply life....

    • Sorry to hear that :-/
      But yes, signs we're getting old is definitely seeing our parents getting very old and its not easy

    • Sorry man :( It's simply life, yes, but not easy, hugs.OBBTKN
    • That's rough. I know that a long life ending doesn't mean it's less sad. I lost both my aunts last year, 97 and almost 99.CyBrainX

    • @garbage He wasn’t kidding at all. Even after I laughed at the ridiculous idea that an all powerful god needed to fake the scenery....futurefood

    • @Morning_star Not sure if you are being flippant here. Nathan provided a great example (one of thousands) of a natural process....futurefood

    • Another example I like to use is Entropy, or the second law of thermodynamics to disprove that a god existsfuturefood
    • The natural process from order to disorder and the direction of time.
      Since this process seems to be outside of a god’s ability to control...
      futurefood
    • It should beg the question why would a god start a process like this to begin with? What purpose would it serve him as a creator who needs to be worshipped?futurefood
    • Simple, because there was no god there to do it.futurefood
    • Nathan’s example also refers to entropyfuturefood
    • Thanks for the reply Futurefood. You’ll get no disagreement from me that there are thousands of examples that prove young earthers...Morning_star
    • ..are foolish to expect anything productive when challenging science. However, Nathan’s example doesn’t provide a reason for them to change their mind...Morning_star
    • Whilst his example would be appropriate if he claimed that the universe is 4000 years old. However the Lead he talks about could have come to earth via a...Morning_star
    • ..collision with a lead rich asteroid. A better example would be the seasonal ice layers iwhich you can physically measure that go back 800,000 years.Morning_star
    • The lead in the asteroid is also old AF though. Also, asteroids.monospaced
    • Whatever mono. The point is that the question referenced EARTH and the answer didn’t. Be accurate or be wrong.Morning_star
    • Well, when asteroids become meteors, as in they hit earth, they are relevant. Off the top of my head, the Barringer Crater in Arizona is about 50,000 years oldgarbage
    • The Yarrabubba impact site in Australia is estimated to be at least two million years old, and that's a conservative estimate.garbage
    • I'm still confused as to why anybody is defending YEC. It's not elitist to call a moron a moron. It's called having a brain.garbage
    • Not defending YEC, criticising Nathans answer because it doesn’t make sense. And, pointing out the smug backslapping the QBN ‘enlightened’ seem to enjoy.Morning_star
    • Being right and saying so isn't "smug backslapping". It's being educated. I also have no idea who Nathan is.garbage
    • But point in the right direction. We pat bottoms here - we're no slackjawed slapbacks.garbage
    • Nathan is the chap who replied to the original ‘change my mind’ question.Morning_star
    • I think the earth is only two days older than the universe and two days younger than the bible. Take that satanists!_niko
    • I'm not sure someone from "Christians Against Science" was ever really open to having their mind changed.MrT
    • If you fancy the experiencing the knots these YEC types tie themselves up in have a look at this...Ken Ham & Bill Nye touring the Ark Encounter...Morning_star
