Applied Protology 201 Guidelines

This forum is for Christian creationists (YEC and OEC) only, and we ask that conversations be kept civil and with brotherly charity.

Deistic notions or even theistic evolutionary* notions are excluded from this forum.

This area is not to be used to bash organizations that promote a Cosmological view different from your own (ie AiG or RTB).


The purpose of this area is to provide a safe haven for fellow creationists to discuss their differences away from the hostility that normally accompanies such discussion. While disagreements are inevitable, the purpose of this forum is for fellow believers to discuss their differences in a civil manner. If you are unable to discuss differences in Cosmogony in a civil manner, then this forum is NOT for you!!!!!

There have been some issues as to who is allowed to post in this area and who is not. TheologyWeb had very specific goals and ideas in mind when setting up this area, and this is an attempt to clarify. This forum is for creationists only. This is not simply naturalism plus a belief in God or gods. So in other words, the question that a poster must ask himself is this: In what significant ways do my views on the origin of life and the universe differ from a non-theistic materialistic view practically speaking? If there are no significant differences, then this forum is not for you. The purpose is for persons who believe in a very active and significant “creation” process. All theists will by definition have some metaphysical elements, that is not the deciding factor here. Also simply a belief in the supernatural special creation of man or the infusion of a specially created soul is not the deciding factor. Of course those things are important, but that is not the sum and substance of the types of discussions here in which this would be a significant difference in the debate discussions.


Fairly speaking, we at TheologyWeb ask the posters not to look for “loopholes” or ways that their views could “fit.” If a poster frankly would not be considered a “creationist” in general vernacular, then we ask that such do not participate in this section in good faith. This is not done as a judgment or criticism against any theist whose views do not fall within the purview of this forum, it is simply to insure that the goals and intent of the spirit of the intentions of TheologyWeb are carried out. This is not said in maliciousness at all, and we totally ask for the respect of our members to the spirit in which this forum was created, for creationists (and ID advocates) as generally understood. There may certainly be Christians who do not qualify for this forum and that is not meant as a slur or insinuation against them. Salvation is not dependent upon our creation beliefs which are a secondary, in-house issue, though of course important.

Do not be offended or combative if a Moderator contacts you with a request for clarification of your beliefs and that sometimes the judgment calls of what is within the guidelines here can be gray. Please grant us the benefit of the doubt.

Due to the rash of recent "hostile" threads, the Cosmogony forum guidelines have been updated in an effort to 1) Clarify the purpose of this forum and 2) to prevent a repeat of the recent unpleasantries.


The purpose of the Cosmogony area has always been to provide a “safe haven” for civil discourse between fellow believers who happen to have opposing views on creation. It was our intent that the common ground of belief in deity and belief in some type of special creation would be enough to keep the discussion civil.

However, just the opposite has occurred. The Cosmogony area is one of the most contentious areas of TWeb. In order to return this area to “safe haven” it was designed to be, the area will be placed under greater moderator scrutiny until you guys lean to behave.

This means that personal attacks on posters, attacks on the Christianity of supporters of views that you do not hold, attacks on Christian organizations that support views that you do not hold, and hostile behavior in general will be subject to moderator intervention. However, what constitutes an “attack” is still up to the discretion of the moderators.

Posters who are habitually edited for hostile/aggressive post will have their access to this forum removed.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact the moderator(s) of this area.



Like everywhere else at Tweb, the regular rules apply:

    I had thought so. But if it is to be understood as universal and not globle. Where is it?
    The alleged evidence for a globle flood spans geological time of some over 300,000,000 years, it would seem. So where is it?

              One area that there is proof for a global flood lies in the Mojave desert of the United States' Midwest. The sedimentary layers and fossils are the most noticeable. I have personally seen the plaques depicting evidence that it was an ancient sea.

              Other proof is the oil fields. All the dinosaurs and other animals were brought together by the rising waters and undercurrents during the flood. Oil fields are these gathering spots where mass graves where the decaying bodies of all these large animals assembled.

                This is not proof of a global flood. As you say, it is evidence that the Mojave was once an ancient sea. It provides no evidence that this sea was global, or that it was due to a flood.

                Yes, oil comes from the decay of ancient plants and animals. But why do you think all of the world's oil fields are the same age, or are due to a global flood? Do you have any evidence, either biblical or scientific, which suggests this?

                      If you think there is some absurdity involved, I think it is on the part of those dating "300,000,000 or so years".

                              Welcome to Tweb m85 .

                              The fact that an area was at one time underwater does not mean that the entire globe was submerged a few thousand years ago. What you need to do is show a single layer that stretch across the entire planet was underwater. That is something that nobody can do and not for a want of trying. In fact, it was the early geologists (late 18th and early 19th century), many of who were members of the clergy, who went out looking for evidence of a global flood (and quite confident that they would find it) who first discovered that not only was there no evidence for such a recent catastrophe but instead all of the evidence was pointing against it. This has not changed since that time.

                              Just one of the many issues is the fact that the layers that are often identified as "flood layers" contain things that cannot be the result of a flood. Things like deserts, paleosols, evaporites, forests stacked one atop another and even limestone or chalk layers (the latter of which while formed underwater cannot happen during a flood). Things like this are found all over the world at every geologic layer.

                              Ouch. Actually, it is a long discredited myth that oil fields are the result of decaying dinosaur remains. In short, petroleum was formed from the remains of microscopic plants and animals (primarily the plants) that lived in the oceans millions of years ago that got buried and were acted upon by bacteria while under tremendous amounts of pressure and heat. No dinosaurs or other terrestrial animals were involved in the making in spite of what some oil companies implied in the advertising years ago (which wasn't really intended to be taken seriously)
