So, Rick, what was your "ah-ha" moment or thing that changed your mind?
I was listening to the radio in my car one day, and I heard a Jewish man talking about yom. He said that it doesn't always mean "24 hour day".

Re: Atheist question

So, clearly, you are only entertaining the idea that non-intelligent things could produce the events and wonders of the Big Bang, mostly because the only other alternative for you is there had to be a Creator. So clearly you believe an intelligent being could live eternally mostly because the only ...

Re: What REALLY killed the dinosaurs?

Yes, Rick, you nailed it - but did you already know their position, or was it just an educated guess (knowing Ham / AIG)? Um...I used to be a YEC, remember?

Re: What REALLY killed the dinosaurs?

DB: There was no asteroid! The asteroid is fabrication perpetuated by evolutionists who are attempting to deceive people into believing that the Bible is wrong. DB isn't far off, per AIG / Ham's take on it! According to Ken Ham ( https://answersingenesis.org/dinosaurs/extinction/first-victims-dino-...

Re: What REALLY killed the dinosaurs?

So, what I'd really like to see is someone from the young earth perspective explain how this catastrophic asteroid, of a magnitude capable of extinguishing the dinosaurs, would not have likewise wiped out mankind - which YECs insist lived alongside of men?

Re: Churches open 24 hours ?

Maybe you could get a membership to one of those 24 hour gyms, and go in there and pray. Unless you think God won't listen to you in a gym. Cardio with Christ?
