I am sorry that I took your remark about the value of pi as a dig. I am relieved that you didn't mean it that way.

Guest, TIA,

I completely agree that falsifiability is characteristic of the scientific method.   Technically, Ancient Earth Naturalism is falsifiable. Practically, it approaches unfalsifiability. Suppose, for example, someone were to find a living population of organisms previously known only from fossils, organisms that had supposedly been extinct for many millions of years, what would happen? Or suppose a fossil find turned out to be a hoax, what would happen? Would AEN be falsified? We don't have to wonder. We know what happened when the coelacanth was found, and when Wollemia was found. We know what happened when Piltdown Man was exposed as a hoax, and what happened when Archaeoraptor was exposed.

Bill D.,

Actually I do not accept that the earth is billions of years old. The "young" in Young Earth Creationism" refers to the belief that the earth and the universe is thousands of years old, not billions.
