Hugh Ross and Mike Winger

I've been on Twitter for a year or so and it's led me to lots of interesting Christian 'stuff' - particularly YouTube videos featuring the two above. I've watched a couple of good very recent Hugh Ross videos - 'Testing Genesis with Advancing Science' which makes so much sense, and also 'Origin of L...

Re: Top Ten Reasons I'm An Atheist

Ken: "If cells have always existed, I can see it as only a matter of time before they can join and evolve into an intelligent being." Ken, I love your casual use of the word "if." And a simple cell could not have evolved to become such. As at its most basic design and functionality, it is already M...

Re: Merely Believe in Christ? Why Don't Atheists Believe?

Thanks Nicki. Glad to see at least someone liked what I had to write. ;) Thinking maybe it had the wrong title, was posted in the wrong forum area perhaps... :P I'd think more would weigh in on the topic of "belief", but I notice this is actually a topic Christians tend give a wide berth. That is, ...

Re: Hi

Greetings, Mel - great to hear from you! My 15-year-old is constantly glued to the XBox / PlayStation gaming as well - I mean, he's obsessed with it. I worry about it, not sure how to address it. Let me know if you come up with the solution! :lol: And next month, I start teaching him to drive - tha...

Re: Hi

I'm OK :ebiggrin: Everyday is a winding road... ^_^ Why was it a tough year? Ah, where do I start? Lack of work in my case, then my husband losing his job a few weeks ago; he started a new one after about a month and then a week or so later had a mysterious accident (he can't remember exactly what ...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

My question continues to be WHY do living organisms evolve as opposed to NOT evolving? The simple answer is because they can to which I ask WHY can they? There is no real reason why any organism MUST evolve, right? So why do they? I guess this gets back to the old standby... "because God made it th...

Re: Prayers about work

So an update a year on, and it seems the bleeding has stopped i.e., we're no longer eating into our savings/mortgage the last 2-3 months. Things still feel quite dicey, there's been a lot of work getting a new business off the ground. Despite some possible risks we're facing, it appears to be panni...

Re: The Toolbox argument against Intelligent Design

Evolution by natural selection does NOT require an "intelligence" behind it since the "selection" process is "automatic". Of course, it has not been explained how that is, how it is the nature "selects" a random mutated trait as "beneficial" or as "useful". Some have tried to explain that the selec...

Re: Old Chicks rule!

When I first read this thread title I thought of this tomboyish woman who works at the cafe at the community college I go to. As you have guessed, I have flirted with her a little bit, but since she said I was probably too young for her (she's like mid to late 20s though I told her I was 19) I most...

Re: adventure time

My kids used to like that one :) I tended to find it annoying myself but then I never really sat down and watched a whole episode.
