Random thought: Og was 18 foot tall! There are multiple reports of giants in the torah. By the meraglim the torah and chazal go into great detail explaining the precise measurements of the fruits -enormous. This was all within the last 4-6 thousand years! yet "science" is busy counting age of world at zillions of years because they found some giant fossils... #clueless.
The reason they say the bones are old is not because they're big...  :-\

I know I know....
They wouldn't believe in giants living a couple of thousand years ago though.. That's way to close for comfort...
They are clueless about happenings four thousand years ago but they talk about billions.. Its literally hilarious.

Maybe we should have a separate thread for the stuff your kids tell you :)

Bones are dated through carbon dating. There are three options of how to deal with the age carbon dating suggests
1. The science is phony
2. God created items on the earth with dated molecular material (in order to trick us? I once asked an Adam gadol how we know that svara is a makor (both in machshava and halacha) and he quoted I believe from the ramchal that that is the faculty which Hashem gave us and He wouldn't lead us astray)
3. The days during Shivas yemei breishis were not regular days but were longer periods

I always thought the Mabul created the aging, with that type of water pressure on items it could make them look much older then they really are.

Regarding #2 I once heard from a mashgiach that things were created in their complete form for example Adam was an adult and therefore if you were to cut open a tree it would have rings showing it was around for X amount of years even though it wasn't.

Since when do we have to "deal" with carbon dating anyway? ?

I have no problem with the facts in the Torah, the way they have been submitted to myself and all of klall Yisroel for generations...

Its one thing to take casual interest in new "scientific" findings. But to imply that we have to somehow answer, subscribe to, and reconcile our Torah shleima to their "discoveries" is laughable. They themselves admit that they have such a miniscule understanding of the world... We should be concerned??

@ergel, and BTW what's with meraglims grapes? Also some kinda "longer days" theory?
How does science feel about giants living 3800 years ago?

Answer is, they don't think anything! They only know what they can see and rationalize. Everything else's for them is impossible. AKA Greek philosophy... Not Science.

Can we just stop? I will take responsibility for most of the nonsense but I need your help. Too many threads are getting cluttered with this nonsense and members are getting upset (rightfully so). Letís just go back to posting as normal and leave all the extra stuff out. If we are ever at a DO together we can rehash anything you like. Your cooperation would be greatly appreciated.

Why do I care what science says about the meraglim grapes. It's shteit in torah and therefore it's true.

I don't think you need to have the answer for carbon dating (i personally don't have such an interest in these things). But to dismiss carbon dating out of hand just because scientists don't acknowledge giants strikes me as silly, disingenuous and lacking intellectual honesty
