Nathan Anderson elected to Lisburn and Castlereagh.

Postby Peter Henderson » Fri May 30, 2014 11:57 pm

Chairman of the QUB creation Society and member of Creation Outreach Ministries committee Nathan Anderson has been elected to one of the new super councils in NI, Lisburn and Castlereagh:

You may recall that Anderson had an encounter with P.Z Myers when he visited here a few years back:

Also elected was Luke Poots, son of Edwin and without question another YEC.

With a plethora of YECs visiting the province later in the year (well, two anyway) including a Giant's Causeway field trip with Tas Walker, things appear to be heating up in the province again.

Still, the super councils are all so big that no party has an overall majority in any of them, which might not be a bad thing.

This event was held on the premises of Whitewell Metropolitan Tabernacle - the church where Pastor James McConnell (recently in the news after calling Islam 'satanic') preaches:

Don't think I went to that one because it was (1) an all day event and (2) you had to pay to get in.

Lots of stuff happening later in the year Ashley including that tour by Tas Walker. I suppose I should read up on Steve Moreton's material as I'm not sure my geology is really up to challenging Walker.

One of the talks is at the People's Church, a break away from Whitewell after another pastor fell out with McConnell. It's not far from me so I might try and get to that one.

Lots of Presbyterian congregations involved in both the Walker tour and Philip Bells "back to the beginning tour" as well.

I have another article in the pipeline debunking Tas Walker, this time going into detail on the Interbasaltic Bed. It should be in the next issue of Earth Science Ireland due out imminently. The published version is a much shortened version of the original, which took every one of Walker's "problems" with the Interbasaltic Bed apart. PM me if you want the full length version. It would be very interesting to see Walker's reaction when challenged face to face with his made-up claims. As far as I can tell the Giants Causeway is the only example of the Interbasaltic Bed he has visited. No doubt he will be lying at length about it, whilst ignoring masses of published research proving it is a laterite.

Thanks for that Steve. I'll look out for that article.

Unfortunately my geology only extends to A Level though I've done some geology related degree courses with the OU (e.g. S268), so I'm not sure I have enough to challenge Walker. I wish someone from the Belfast Geological Society would go along but I've no idea how to get in touch with them as they've no website and don't really advertise their meetings for some reason.

We did cover the interbastalic bed at O-level, and I do remember it was formed by intensive weathering when the climate became wetter and much miler. I'm not sure what Walker will come will come up with in relation to the flood, but I suppose I should have a look on his website.

My parents have an apartment in Portrush so I may go up and stay overnight if there's an early start. Would love to go along to this one.

Peter - on Walker's website look out for these:
http://biblicalgeology.net/Geological-H ... -soil.html
http://biblicalgeology.net/Geological-H ... seway.html
The first is more relevant. Every single one (and I mean EVERY single one) of his "problems" is either false or irrelevant. He also ignores publications from Victorian times to present detailing analyses, textures, fossils, isotopes etc. that indicate it is a laterite, whilst offering not a jot of evidence for his own view.
The Earth Science Ireland website is here:
http://earthscienceireland.org/
but there is no sign yet of the next issue. It should be imminent. I will flag it on this forum when it is available. The published article had to be greatly cut in size for space reasons. I have much more data to challenge Walker with and will happily share it with anyone who wants to go along and ask him awkward questions. I would love to be there, but have only a limited amount of holiday entitlement and it is all allocated to other things this year.
