Rabble rouser Ken Ham and his biased Facebook fans

Creationist bloggers can be infuriating. If one has infuriated you by persisting in nonsense even when corrected, or refusing to reply to your criiticsm, you may feel driven to recording the fact. If so, you may register your disapproval here and hope a response is forthcoming.

Another YEC made-up claim

"So where did jade come from? Astonishingly, the biblical Flood cataclysm provided just the right kind of rare, stressful conditions necessary to produce this beautiful gemstone." That's not in the Bible. Although it hints at a big earthquake at the start of the flood in Genesis 7:11 - resulting in waters rising from below - the Genesis flood account says ZILCH about plate tectonics or subduction nor anything specifically about intense heat or pressure. And the flood is supposed to have been worldwide yet jade is only found in certain locations - mostly near some of today's crustal plate boundaries.

"This catastrophic bursting forth of hot waters and upwelling molten rock would have caused massive rifts in the seafloor (“the great deep”). Such rifting would have rapidly spread around the globe—including across the supercontinent, tearing the earth’s crust apart into oceanic crust and continental plates.
The plates, in turn, moved and collided, causing the heat, extreme pressures, and hot saline fluids that produced jadeite and nephrite deposits."
Nice story. But NOT found in the Bible. And continents breaking apart and then colliding again weeks or months later (did they encircle the globe in the meantime or just go into reverse) is just daft (and desperate).
