Re: WAS dropping atom bombs on WWII Japan an immoral act?

K: My father-in-law escaped from Poland via Russia as a boy.


Ah, so you wake up with a lass of Polish descent, as well? My bride is 100% pure Polish - which translates to 100% stubbornness, LOL.

Re: John H. Walton said what about concordism?

DB: The place that I disagree with Walton and Heiser is their premise that the ONLY valid interpretation of Genesis 1 is what the original audience would have understood within the context of their ancient cosmology. That is certainly a significant and valid understanding, but it is not the ONLY va...

Re: Why doesn't Judaism proselytize Judaism ?

Anti-antisemitism is currently on the rise all over Europe! They've been targets and outcasts for thousands of years, with so many children of the Holocaust era still being alive - it's no wonder they isolate themselves. This is what Scripture predicts, BTW. And so many groups have been Jew haters -...

Re: Mike Pence

Rick: "The outcome would be Pence looking for a new job, and Trump having a new VP running mate. As much as most of us agree that Trump isn't the ideal president, can't we all acknowledge that he was the ideal candidate to beat Clinton? And without Trump, we'd all be complaining about presiden...

Re: John H. Walton said what about concordism?

Walton has views similar to those in Dr. Johnny Miller's book (I've discussed before): "In the Beginning We Misunderstood." And that is, Moses is not providing the newly created Israel, with its pre-scientific age understandings and having absorbed 4 centuries of ancient Egyptian / Mesopot...

Re: Mike Pence

Here's an interesting question. IF Pence decided to run against Trump for the Republican nomination, what do you think would be the outcome?

So, we stood up to Japan's aggression - how the heck did we lose respect over this???

Re: Disney's Atlantis: The Lost Empire

no mean singy song Amen to that! All of those Disney things are tied to merchandising, demands for soundtracks, and creating new little tween "rockstars." Really, they are mostly cartoon musicals. And the one Disney movie I hate worse than ALL other ones: "High School Musical" -...

Re: How were the Chaldeans in Hab 1:5-6?

DB: I think we can see a similar relationship between the spirit world and the behavior of Rome in the first century. And Judaism did frequently draw parallels between OT Babylon and first century Rome. Yes, can you imagine a people so evil that they wagered on and saw as sport people being ripped ...

Re: Was Jesus Tortured in hell for 3 days and 3 Nights?

Not to mention one has to read into the text that Jesus visited hell. PLUS, remember how Jesus told the Disciples to shake the dust from their feet to anyone that rejected their message - to move on. Jesus would not be preaching a message that was too late - after their deaths - to people already ju...

Re: WAS dropping atom bombs on WWII Japan an immoral act?

Yeah, Hitler was a peace-loving guy who had no ambitions beyond Germany's historical territories? That's why it's submarines were constantly sinking ships in the Atlantic. A deluded, evil megalomaniac bent on genocide, building a war machine like no other - really, if he'd conquered Europe, wonder w...

Re: The Resurrection Events Analyzed by Scholars

Isn't it interesting, you crack open a Bible - even early in the OT - and you read of a geographic place and then go to a world atlas to search for it. Almost always, it's there - or the newer name is there instead of the ancient one. Try that with something like the Book of Mormon!

Re: The Resurrection Events Analyzed by Scholars

To further get a feel for the Jerusalem of the Resurrection and Jesus' time, I thought I'd give some interesting visuals. Here is a model of the 2nd Temple of the Jews – remember, the First Temple constructed by Solomon was destroyed, later to be rebuilt under Nehemiah. It is this second Temple tha...
