Many years before humans grazed this earth the dinosaurs roamed the wild, king of the lands. A “Young Earth Creationist” or YEC will argue that dinosaurs were around with humans circa 6000 years ago. An “Old Earth Creationist” or OEC will be open to dinosaurs being around millions of years ago, but will likely state all creatures were created as is. That is to say, there is no evolution on a Macro scale.
The fossil record supports an old earth. Various dating methods support an old universe and old earth. DNA evidence supports Evolution. The idea is rejected because the creationist/fundamentalist feels it contradicts their belief and enters the wheel of circular logic.
Whilst we have some great articles that deal with these misconceptions, theists will likely not read them. They are far too locked in their wall of confirmation bias. Thankfully the awesome Lord Cropes has provided us, and indeed you, a beautiful gallery of images for fast rebuttal to common statements we hear.
As with the previous Cropes CCM gallery, feel free to download and use these in debates. Make sure you give him a shout out on twitter too and let him know you like his work!
Please note, the last two images are not Cropes memes. The dinosaur one is from a creationist website, and the skulls is an example of transitional fossils.

The article I would like to address in this article is http://www.icr.org/article/summary-scientific-evidence-for-creation/ I guess firstly I should introduce you to Duane Tolbert Gish, Ph.D. For a person with a Ph.D, I would expect better, but when a person will turn his back on the scientific method and make claims he cannot support while...
