Time for the BA to get even more annoyed at creationism...

Ghost Craters in the Sky (http://www.trueorigin.org/dfonmoon.asp) has got to be one of the more silly young-earth creationist articles I have read in a while.

A YEC critic of the views in "Ghost Craters in the Sky" is not beyond being silly either: Extraterrestrial Bombardment of the Inner Solar System:
A Review With Questions and Comments Based On New Information (http://www.creationresearch.org/crsq/notes/38/38_4/Note0203.htm)

Share and enjoy.

Good grief. That is getting silly.

The magma in the moon is very thick. That is why it takes so long for it to flow out onto the surfice.

The ghost craters are just fairly large craters that got mostly covered by the magma, leaving an outline.

Well, what they're claiming is that since the maria are the remnants of huge impacts, the larger impacts would have obliterated any older craters in the area. If it had been created after the magma filled the area, the crater would be clear and distinct. Therefore, the ghost craters must have been created after the large impacts and before the magma flowed out and filled the maria.

Since it couldn't have taken that long to fill them up with magma, the half billion year timeframe can't be right and hence the moon must be much younger than 4.5 billion years.

Whats makes you think deterioration of craters is the only method of dating the moon?????

Your making science look silly like womans makeup in the hands of a 3year old.

I don't think their claim has anything to do with the deteioration of craters either. Just that the time frame given for the creation of the ghost craters is far too long for them to be possible. Hence the moon must be much younger than claimed. Well, okay, they don't outright state it, but that's the gist of it.
