Re: Trump Moving U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem!!!

No, Jews, Christians and Muslims to NOT worship the same God but in different ways.
Not sure how many times that needs to be said.

Re: The Truth Surrounding the Theory of Evolution and its Rationale

Trying to reconcile evolution with genesis is, to say the very least, a challenge. Genesis is a theological book and we also have to look at the flood too. IF the flood was global then re population of the world is based on the survivors of the flood. Less of an issue, of course, if the flood was lo...

Re: The Truth Surrounding the Theory of Evolution and its Rationale

Don, Scripture doesn't really address that at all. Scripture simply says that Man came from the Earth as all life did, brought forth By God. The HOW is not mentioned. Scripture then says that a distinct creation even happened in a specific local ( The Garden in Eden) and that event brought forth Ada...

Re: The Truth Surrounding the Theory of Evolution and its Rationale

I think that Neo is stating that, evolution as we know it does NOT require any SPECIAL intervention from God. And He is correct about that. It still requires He sustain the process of course BUT no special intervention on His part is require din the process to get us from a single celled organism to...

Re: Morality

Very few people have the balls to take subjective morality to it's natural conclusion and those that do are, typically, viewed as psychopaths or sociopaths. But they are at least honest.

Re: The Truth Surrounding the Theory of Evolution and its Rationale

I don't want you to think that we are going with the "miracle of the gaps" argument, any less than someone is going with the "science of the gaps" argument. We need to always take what was written in the bible from the perspective of WHO was writing it, to WHOM and WHEN. While th...

Re: Morality

It is very easy for people with established morals in a society with established morals to comment on how they don't need objective morals.

Re: The Truth Surrounding the Theory of Evolution and its Rationale

As always, I think I agree with you mostly, except a small thing here or there. 1. As I also wrote to Rick, we can't use evolution selectively the same way we should use scriptures selectively. 2. Yes, we will have a much better understanding 1000 years from now, but I do believe that some basic fa...

Re: The Truth Surrounding the Theory of Evolution and its Rationale

Also, we need to understand that the classical Theist God didn't just create ALL, but SUSTAINS all so that if evolution is happening, it is happening because of God. Paul, I agree with you but it seems to me that it is maybe a little too vague a statement? For instance, how would you separate the t...

Re: The Truth Surrounding the Theory of Evolution and its Rationale

Yes. And had it been just that I would concede that there isn't a confirmation or negation of evolution. The thing that I see is an overall connotation to both these accounts (and later on through the Bible that humans are indeed special creation - divinely purposed) that does indeed show God havin...

Re: The Truth Surrounding the Theory of Evolution and its Rationale

What metaphysical or Theological discoveries have been discovered in the last 1000 years? Name one new discovery! You do realize that the CORE of science, the scientific method, the is a view that we CAN know the universe around us and that there is a degree of "predictability" ( repeat-a...
