Quote# 2782

But according to the Big Bang theory, the elements beyond hydrogen and helium were formed after millions of years, the Earth was formed long after the stars, plants evolved after the sun, birds evolved from reptiles, and the sun was formed before the Earth.

What the hell? You have no understanding of the Big Bang theory do you?

That first part was right.

Besides the fact that evolution and abiogenesis have NOTHING TO DO WITH THE BIG BANG THEORY, you seem to have it fairly accurate. Oh, and the Earth was formed long after *some* of the stars' stars are still being 'born'.

closer than most I've seen here

He's on the right track, actually. Let me just make the first clause more accurate:

But according to the scientific and naturalistic view of the Universe...

1.)...the elements beyond hydrogen and helium were formed after millions of years

Yes!

2.) ...the Earth was formed long after the stars

Some stars. As mentioned before, stars are still being born. But, yes, most of the stars we see are older than the earth.

3.)...plants evolved after the sun

Yep! Photosynthesis without sunlight is harrrrd.

4.)...birds evolved from reptiles

Yeppers! And, yes, we have the transitional fossils.

5.) ...the sun was formed before the Earth

Pretty sure so. According to Wikipedia's article on the Origin of the Solar System, the baby sun had a cloud of matter around it that coalesced into the various planets and other stuff.

I'm sure, however, that the Bad Astronomer and his crew can explain that last one better than I, and have already ripped you to utter shreds about all of this.

Allegory for Jesus

Well, those things are all what we've concluded based on science in general, but only the first two are actually implied by the Big Bang Theory.

It takes a sun to create the heavier elements so it's possible that all the material that formed the planets and added mass to our sun came from earlier suns throwoff to our part of the galaxy.

Lot of shit went on in this universe before that mudball called Earth ever formed.

The sun certainly preceeds life on Earth by a shitload of time

Yes, and?

Btw, the Big Bang theory says nothing about evolution, plants, reptiles or birds.

So?

Oh, all that goes against the Biiiiible?

Well, I guess all our modern science must be wrong, because we can't doubt the word of a group of ancient tribesman on matters of the universe, right?

In simple terms (for the hard of thinking such as Ponce here):

Cosmology =/= Biology. Thus:

The Big Bang Theory says absolutely nothing about plants or birds evolving from anything, but to his credit he has at least got some of it correct. That makes him a genius by the standards of most of the people quoted here.

Besides the BB bit I can't argue with any of that.

And according to creationism, plants were created before the sun.

Fail physics much?

But according to the Big Bang theory standard model of cosmology and/or the ToE, the elements beyond hydrogen and helium were formed after millions of years, the Earth was formed long after the first stars, plants evolved after the sun, birds evolved from reptiles dinosaurs, and the sun was formed before the Earth.

Not bad for a first try, you’ll get there eventually.
