One of these days you'll be smiling when you actually see what happens when an evolutionist tangles with a knowledgable Gap Theorist and is totally defeated,unlike with YEC or ID.Some people just have to see it to believe it.
I'm perhaps the only person, ( maybe "Hugh Frey" as well) on this board that you can call an evolutionist, that I appeal to naturalism in almost all ways. I am yet to be convinced or impressed.

The only way to defeat the TOE, is to present evidence against it. I can reject GT and your argument for it based on your weak and in some cases just wrong interpretation, and apparent lack of respect for Hebrew grammar.

On the other hand, no one can do the same with TOE. You have to find evidence to the contrary to actually "defeat" it. Which you don't suppose is needed but really it does.

The Gap Theory can defeat the Theory of Evolution even if you was able to show by Hebrew why you think it is wrong. Because "A Lost World" is still more believable than the theory of evolution based on the evidence that has been dug out of the earth.Once all of the evidence is laid out a lost world without evolution will be more interesting and believable to people over the Theory of Evolution. This is a big reason why I believe The Gap Theory is the correct creation interpretation. The thing is though is nobody has ever seen a debate against a knowledgable Gap Theorist who knows how to blend science into this interpretation and an expert evolutionist and so you doubt it. I have been testing out the Gap Theory against evolutionists on and off for awhile now and I know how effective it is against evolution. All I get these days is evolutionists hiding behind peer review and just declaring evolution is true.
I think you are giving yourself too many brownie points.

Do you know why I accept evolution?
Hint: It has nothing to do with whats more believable.
Me? brownie points? No.I'm trying to give God browny points for this interpretation that I believe is confirmed correct based on the evidence. Also I am respectful to Theistic Evolutionists eventhough I disagree with them.I was open to Theistic Evolution but just could not accept it based on evidence but I don't judge them or their salvation,call them names,make fun of them,etc.Because our creation interpretation does not determine our salvation.I just think they are wrong when it comes to creationism.
Hebrews 12:2-3 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross,despising the shame,and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

2nd Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not,lest the light of this glorious gospel of Christ,who is the image of God,should shine unto them.

You really think God needs 'em or we can give him some?

And again this isn't a salvation issue so we agree.
However, let me put it to you, I accept evolution and reject GT not because one or the other is more believable.
It would be a blessing if they missed the cairns and got lost on the way back. Or if
the Thing on the ice got them tonight.

I could only turn and stare in horror at the chief surgeon.

I am going to do my best to show biblically why the Gap Theory is true biblically and show why critics are wrong or do not have proper understanding of Gap Creationism.I am going to try to not only show why the Gap Theory is true biblically but also show how much more bible understanding you get from understanding Gap Creationism properly from a biblical perspective that other creation interpretations overlook or don't know about.Gap Creationism enhances your bible knowledge actually and it does'nt get enough recognition so I'm going to try to show you why it is true biblically and so important to creationism and understanding the bible properly.Alot of times the depth of the Gap theory is skimmed over when we are just trying to make a case for it based on a few scriptures but there is so much more that gets lost or is not realized that makes the pages of the bible come alive and reveal so much more and actually enhances our bible knowledge the more you understand it.This will be like an indepth bible study of Gap Creationism that I believe shows it is not only true but important to understand in order to have better bible understanding.The Gap Theory is more important than many Christians realize.
I was partial to the gap theoery but then came across this verse (specifically verse 11; others included for context) in another thread and I think it pretty well puts to rest the gap theory.
Exodus 20:10-12 King James Version (KJV)
10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
Here it quite clearly says that the heaven and the earth were created as part of the six days of creation.

What say you acb?
Only when the blood runs and the shackles restrain, will the sheep then awake. When all is lost.
