Re: Comet: First Agriculture and Neolithic Civilizations

The evidence is circumstantial - given the apparent comment event described on the pillar, the constellation positions, the correlation, known from ice core samples, of a sudden fall in temperatures. Is it true? Dunno.

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

K: if God is all-powerful, then God must be able to outsmart any lesser created being while remaining consistent to His very own nature, to Himself. Should a creature like us be able to make God lie, then in a way we have defeated God . As for God lying - WHY would he even have to? He created all, ...

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

ACB: The laws of causality for our world/universe
1. All things have a cause.
2.All things that have a cause are caused by something else.
3.All things are willed into existence.
4.There can be no infinite regression.


No "gaps" in that logic, ACB!

Rick: I think we have the world's laziest drivers here.


Nope - sorry, SC wins that sad distinction. Actually, Boston drivers may be worse, though. Never put on a turn signal up there, to move over - because you'll never get over. Ya gotta just go, before they cut you off.

Rick, is his driving THAT bad? Are you anticipating police action? Wrecks? What?

Re: The Left Coast Eco Freaks

LA has a set of geological features and weather patterns that seem to make the perfect storm for persistent smog. To be fair - all the joking about CA environmental whacko jokes aside - the terrain and forces of the surrounding mountain ranges, they stack the deck against certain parts of CA - part...

Re: Aaron Hernandez Suicide

Whatever the case, of Hernandez' last moments, he clearly was sending a message about John 3:16. I hope he truly embraced it - even as he was in such mental anguish so as to not be able to face continued living. Like the thief on the cross - there's always hope in the Lord. But we'll never know what...

Re: FoxNews: Billy Boy's Gone!

Dunno. What I do know is that if you hold a strong hand with truth in it, you shouldn't fear mere allegations. You don't pay out millions for false, unprovable assertions. And even if the assertions are mostly false, and the one being accused has a provable and questionable immoral history - so emba...

Re: Did All Humans Come From Adam & Eve?

That Heiser quote is 9 years old. But what he's saying is that the expertise of both Ross and Geisler are not as text, language and ANE culture knowledgeable as he is. But they are more so in their on respective fields: science / philosophy of theology. The language can really matter, because nuance...
