(The Bible also doesn't say anything about how the Dead Sea was created. That's an inference by interpreters.) Views expressed are always my own and not my employer's, my church's, my family's, my neighbors', or my pets'. The house plants have authorized me to speak for them, however, and they always agree with me. I agree with Aaron. This has dgszweda - Mon, 02/17/2014 - 7:47am I agree with Aaron. This has to be one of the weakest cases ever. I am sure they were smoking Mike Harding - Mon, 02/17/2014 - 12:35pm I am sure they were smoking "camels" long before this. Pastor Mike Harding CT posted a response to this SBashoor - Mon, 02/17/2014 - 8:16pm And this isn't the first time the "camel argument" has poked its head in the tent. (Though this may be he first time radio carbo dating has been used to support.) http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2014/february-web-only/latest-challe... M. Scott Bashoor Happy Slave of Christ Thanks Aaron Blumer - Mon, 02/17/2014 - 9:02pm For the link, and the humor. The cigarette reference (or were you referring to a method of preparing camel meat? ) helps illustrate the logic problem. If you find a pack of camels buried in 1955, does it prove there aren't any buried from 1950 or that nobody smoked 'em in 1950? Nice one for logic class. Name that fallacy (There's gotta be something more sophisticated going on among the archeologists, anthropologists, etc., but the CNN post...)
