Re: Sweet 16 Hoops

OK, Rick, you can reminisce all day about the "olden" days, but UNC, they're not even in the top five. They haven't won a title in 8 years. :ebiggrin: Hey, I'm no UNC fan, but I'd take an olden days UNC/Duke rivalry, over what passes for basketball now. I was a huge basketball fan in the ...

Re: Is God's will immutable?

Ice: God knows all the possible outcomes. Does He know which one of the outcomes will happen? Of course! That's not really possible? Don't us having free will deny that? Wtf, isn't everything predetermined then? How do you figure that? If God knows what we will choose, how does that equate to God m...

Ok. Google, "Carolina Basketball", Mr. Bigshot, and you'll see who. Only one team comes up in the search. The real Carolina team. You know, the team where the greatest basketball player of all-time, played his college hoops.

Re: Mediate or Immediate? God Forming Us In Our Mother's Womb

People sometimes say God doesn't make mistakes, and therefore no one could have been born gay or psychologically the opposite gender to what their body would indicate. It's not as if no one's ever born with nothing wrong with them however. Some children are born blind, some have other problems (hec...

Re: Genesis 9:5

The soul is that which animates the body. Any thing that grows has a soul which is returned to its maker after the body dies. There are, however, different types of souls. The first form is non-sentient irrational soul for plant life, the second form is the sentient irrational soul for animals, and...

Re: Genesis 9:5

Only certain animals? How do you know this? Do animals go to heaven? Mammals for example. And certain birds. If you've ever had a dog for example, you know dogs have a mind, will and emotions. As to whether animals go to heaven, I really don't know. But the new heavens and new earth? Why couldn't t...

Re: human/ape similarity

Why'd God make us similar to apes? This is directed to those who accept we came from apes and those who don't. We did NOT come from apes. Apes and humans share a common ancestor. Same building blocks, that's all. I remember now that we had a primate ancestor that apes and hominids branched off of, ...

Re: Is God's will immutable?

What if God's will is immutable, and it's His will that he heals someone only if you pray for that person? God wants us to come to Him with our needs. Not because He doesn't already know what we need, but to draw us into a closer relationship with Him. He speaks to us primarily through scripture, an...

Re: Genesis 9:5

Animals don't have a soul. When they die they just die, there is no afterlife for them. At risk of sounding pedantic, a soul is the mind, will, and emotions of certain creatures. And certain animals do have souls. Anyone with a dog, knows that. I think you may be conflating soul, with spirit. Human...

I didn't know Geisler said that. I'd be interested in reading why he feels that way.

Re: Genesis 9:5

How does an animal give account to God for killing a person? So far two answers seem possible-God will kill that animal, or there will be a sort of day or reckoning in the animal's afterlife, if they even have one. Do animals go to hell? I don't think they do, they seem to be in the same group like...

Re: Mediate or Immediate? God Forming Us In Our Mother's Womb

In what ways both? Never mind. You're talking specifically about in the womb. In that specific case, I'm not really sure. But if it's through natural processes, then God was the one who created those processes. So, I'm not sure if it makes a difference. Is there a reason why you think there's a dis...
