- First, re Carbon Dating: MS's info does not disprove the Young Earth findings.

Um, yes, it does.

Of course, any scientist can make wrong conclusions if they use sloppy procedures. But it hasn't been proven that C14 scientists do that.

What's a "C14 scientist?"  Someone who does radiocarbon dating professionally?  No professionals agree with your claim, so I think you just shot yourself in the foot, there.

Radioactive dating that shows long ages has been proven unreliable.

Shall we do the Wikipedia thing and say, [citation needed]?  You like making claims.  Not so much backing them up...

One of the best evidence is coastal and continental erosion. At the current rates of erosion the continents would all erode completely below sea level within 20 million years and the seafloors would have deep deposits of sediment. The seafloors have very little sediment.

That's completely incorrect.  Erosion rates are nowhere near high enough to do that.  And the seafloors are made up almost entirely of sedimentary rock, except in the tectonically-active areas where new rock is being formed by subsurface vulcanism.

- Continental Drift. The most comprehensive theory of formation of Earth's surface is at http://NewGeology.us . The author is probably a creationist, but his theory doesn't rely on creationist belief. His evidence indicates that Earth was struck by an asteroid some 4 to 14 thousand years ago, which broke up the former supercontinent, pushing the Americas over 2,000 miles away from Eurasia and Africa in a matter of a day or so and building up the world's mountain ranges in the process, as well as causing the Great Flood and the formation of sedimentary and other rock strata with many fossils.

An impact strong enough to move the Americas by 2000 miles in a day would have turned the planet into a glowing cinder.  It wouldn't cause a "Great Flood," as there would be no water left.  Or air.  Or anything else, other than molten rock.  It would send so much crustal material into orbit that the resulting dead rock would have a ring system.  There's a good chance that the ring material would impact the moon, creating enough "drag" to slow its orbital speed to the point that it actually crashed back to Earth eventually, effectively destroying both bodies.

That's similar to this guy's theory at http://thunderbolts.info/forum/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=5734 who says all planets are former stars. I think most planets are accreted, but many of the gas giants probably do lose their dense atmospheres eventually to become rocky planets like Earth with thinner atmospheres. Uranus and Neptune may do so, but Venus may be farther along in the process. See this link for discussion of Juenemann's theory and others: https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fthunderbolts.info+juenemann+atmosphere .

MaineShark accuses me of making claims without backing them up, but he's the one who does that. I provided the links for the claims I made. The http://NewGeology.us site provides abundant evidence that continental "drift" was caused by an asteroid impact.

I gave info about Zero Tuition College at http://forum.freestateproject.org/index.php?topic=16789.msg292212#msg292212 .
The founder of ZTC, Blake Boles, is writing a book, The Art of Self-Directed Learning, or it may be already written and maybe just needs funds to get it published. The funding project is occurring at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/blakeboles/the-art-of-self-directed-learning . It is: "A new book with 23 illustrated stories about giving yourself an unconventional education in a conventional world." Libertarians and anarchists et al are all for unconventional education. Am I right?

No, it provides a bunch of claims, not evidence.  I could write a website arguing that humans are actually plants and just don't know it, but those claims would not magically become evidence, just because I stated them.

And, further, as I mentioned, even those claims are patently false.  Those who do radioactive dating don't agree with your claims.  Erosion rates don't even vaguely approach what you've claimed.  Seafloors do have deep deposits of sediment.  And an impact that could move continents would have destroyed the planet, as far as it being anything approaching something that could have life (and could have actually physically destroyed the planet, turning it into an asteroid belt).  Nothing you've said even vaguely approaches being within the realms of the possible, let alone practical or realistic.

Some of these claims are as unrealistic as some scene in a B-movie where someone fires a couple dozen shots from a single-shot gun without reloading.  Others, on the other hand, are more like someone pointing their finger and going, "bang, bang, bang," and it actually resulting in bullets going flying.  The former are grossly inaccurate, but at least make a pretense of conforming with reality (eg, the radioactive dating, which could obviously trick someone who doesn't understand the process or the math), while the latter sort are pure fantasy.

I hope it's encouraging to know that there are lots of people who manage to be Christians without clinging to ancient young-Earth creation myths in defiance of science.
Not if they want to graduate from one of those public schools.

In Praise of The Unexceptional: Because Unschooling Doesn't Have to Be Impressive
http://yes-i-can-write.blogspot.com/2014/05/in-praise-of-unexceptional-because.html
[W]hat’s more important for the moment than whether or not I, or my family, fits the narrative of The Successful Unschooler, is just what that narrative is. Us unschoolers are feeling pressure to do more and be more: to become world travelers or successful entrepreneurs, to win prestigious awards or get head hunted by Google. Somehow, through both the greater culture and through those same messages making their way into our own, smaller, unschooling communities, we’ve gotten the idea that quiet skills aren’t enough. That if we’re not doing big things with obvious rewards, then we’re not enough. That’s why the quote from Alfie Kohn I shared at the beginning of this article, and the article I pulled it from, really resonated with me when I read it. My whole generation, both schooled and not, has been messed up by those messages.

Homeschooling During the Summer?
Summer School or Not
http://www.classicalwriting.com/blog/2014/05/05/homeschooling-during-the-summer
The endless debate I heard between homeschoolers on issues of summer was
1. Yes, we go all summer, the kids get bored and on each other’s nerves otherwise
2. No, we stop in the summer, mom needs a break, and kids need to be bored and find constructive ways of entertaining themselves. Of course both answers have their merits. I will start by saying what I did back then, and then elaborate a little bit on the choices. [Click the link above to read the message.]

How To Get Good Results From Negotiating With Your Kids

Negotiating may seem like something that you should not be doing with your children as it feels like you are giving in to them too easily. It can have a positive effect on your child though. When you negotiate things in their daily lives you are giving them a valuable skill that they can use later in life. Scott Brown, who is the author of How to Negotiate With Kids Even When You Think You Shouldn’t, says that when you negotiate with them you are helping them to learn how to solve their conflicts in a calm and constructive way. Here are some negotiating tips: [Click on the link above.]

« Reply #38 on: May 21, 2014, 07:01:22 pm »

The forum thread described below is an example of how dedicated amateurs can do real science and make breakthroughs.

Ancient Technology Breakthrough
The ancient Egyptians appear to have had electricity and a paper on ancient pyramids at http://MilesMathis.com may provide clues about the source of their electric power. The work described in the following thread may lead to both the discovery of ancient knowledge of technoloty and new understanding of how to better translate hieroglyphics. For example, "masturbating scepters" should read "vibrating [electrical] contacts".

See the thread "Ancients Knowledge of EU revealed in Dendera Light discovery" at http://thunderbolts.info/forum/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=14651 .

Ancient Egyptian Electricity
This finding is pretty extraordinary, if not revolutionary. Ancient Egyptian electricians apparently really knew their craft and could build a lot of different electric circuit components and devices, including tesla coils, transformers and plasma tubes. The author and his friend built electrical devices depicted on Egyptian monuments that really work.

Some speculate that at least one or more of the ancient pyramids was somehow used to generate electric power, but I don't know of any plausible analysis on that yet, unlike the analysis in the "Ancients Knowledge" thread.

The author found that some of the pictures on Egyptian monuments are not meant as hieroglyphs but as illustrations of electrical and maybe other technology etc, which have hieroglyphs nearby probably as captions to explain the images.

                         My understanding of the discoveries there, that the massive interior chambers were made from walls and ceilings of Granite slabs which consist of 30% to 60% Quartz. Walls were made of the same but held 10 inches short of ceiling and funneled into upper tube like tunnels that directed or funneled the Quartz electric.

Not to get off topic here but for those who are homeschooling their kids and want a good tool for teaching earth science, the Merrimack public library has the first public seismograph in the state.  It is being paid for 100% by private donations so not a single tax dollar was used to buy it.  There will also be a few training sessions (also paid 100% with private donations) to teach the public how to read the charts and make sense of what they see.

They are still trying to raise the last $2,800 so here's a chance for free staters to step up and show that the government gun of taxation doesn't need to be used to get what a specific group within a town or community wants.  www.merrimacklibrary.org if you want to make a donation.

No problem. That's not really off-topic here, since the thread is on Schooling. I just like to update the specific subtopic whenever I make a new post. So I'll update to show your subtopic now. Thanks for posting it.
