They are all positively linked in a chain because?
I think there are a LOT of assumptions going on here - and perhaps a little wishfull thinking.
"You say that you believe in God?"
Um, well the opposite of not believing is believing, (the exchange went like this): :
"...so you're an Athiest.[?]"
"To believe what you suggest would mean that God is a liar and a scumbag trickster."
You are WAY too insulting and nasty to try and have a civil discussion with - are you like this with all who disagree with you?
It's certainly ONE way to end a discussion.
Well, first of all, I'm glad someone on the creationism side has dropped the ridiculous fig leaf of a term known as "ID" and decided to be up front about what she wants taught in the schools. That's refreshing, and at least it weeds out the Xenu fans and those who claim a role for Galactus in world events.
Second of all, however, one must ask, what theoretical framework do creationists espouse that would result in falsifiability criteria? If your "theory's" sole answer to every inquiry is that "well, it's that way because God did it and it's a miracle and we can't know the mind of God" then of course no one can prove the theory wrong.
I'm sorry that you are confounded by someone who defeats your false dichotomy worldview.

No, I'm not... I'm just honest. In your worldview, God set up the world specifically to look old and life to look evolved. This is trickery.
