Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

Audacity: Einstein could never have come up with his theories of relativity if he hadn't disagreed with Newton. But Einstein also admited that his previous view of a Godless universe in a "Steady State" was his worst blunder. Course, that doesn't mean his view of God was the same as is a ...

Re: Matthew 9:9

Maybe it's because people don't take church seriously -- is God's Word being taught or is it more politics or human interest topics or current events ,etc. from the pulpit. Why people laugh in response? Sometimes it's because they can't believe the pastor is actually saying 'that'. I've heard curse ...

Re: Didn't Adam and Eve both sin?

Looking at Genesis 3 -- the serpent was talking with Eve in vs 6 and she ate of the fruit and then vs 7 she gave some to Adam and then he ate and then their eyes were opened. They faced God together for their sin. Listening to the serpent instead of believing God.

Re: Gluttony & envy

People eat for different reasons. If we are hungry -- mad -- depressed -- bored -- emotional. If our eating is the only thing we feel we have control of. Instead of turning to drugs, alcohol -- they turn to food.

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

So -- creation as stated in Genesis isn't really viable because all human physiology doesn't always work to the precision that some of us feel it Should. So therefore, there Must be some amount of evolution involved? Is that what you're suggesting? And you're comparing people with chimps because we'...

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

"a Theistic denier of the truth of the Bible' comes real close to making me sick. And, yes, Everyone has freedom to speak their own mind. But there should Also be respectfulness for the beliefs of others, no matter How crazy they sound. Each person's beliefs are important to them as a person. ...

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

Audie and I HAVE had 'conversation' on various subjects that have - pretty much - gotten No Where. Pretty much because from Her perspective - she has a great deal of scientific knowledge and feels that those who disagree with her are simply uninformed in various fields of science. She had accused me...

Re: Transitional / intermediate

I Do believe that I've shared Genesis -- God's creation process -- letting Scripture speak for itself. "A single act of spontaneous creation about 15 billion years ago." Then Who set that 'single act of spontaneous creation' in motion. And What allowed the single-cell to start multiplying....

Re: Transitional / intermediate

I'm asking questions -- discussing -- you're beginning to sound like Audie. The 'higher power' being God and 'create' -- making from nothing except that which God created Himself. Or speaking into existence. Genesis 1. Well, Audie likes to get definitions clear, like me. We don't want to fall into ...

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

Only one comment -- does God want us to be 'happy'? Yes or to be growing, maturing Christians. Yes Because sometimes Our idea of being 'happy' -- involves things that aren't in our best interest. Yes. And such "happiness" isn't real happiness, is it? Thanks for agreeing about the common s...
