Re: Abortion clinic protester

Yes, should have gone to another doc for a second opinion. This was handled badly from the beginning :-(

Re: Why do men have more dominance than women?

Just glancing through the Florida State article, I found some serious flaws in his logic (especially in the area of economics). He also makes a few claims that seem a little absurd and a few that are completely opinions, not based in historical fact (for instance, his explanation of why killing wom...

Re: God and parasitic disease

Whether or not we can see that higher pressure affects things does not prove that the conditions were that way. That's my issue. Saying that "this condition" makes something better does not necessary mean that the conditions were that way. Most of his assertions are simply that, assertions. There is...

Re: God and parasitic disease

Yes, the shape of a protein can absolutely affect it's function, no one disputes that. The issue is that Baugh makes his claim without testing the claim. Seeing a shape change could very well affect the function....but so does heating it, or exposing it to acid...but that does not negate a protein's...

Re: God and parasitic disease

Problem is, Baugh presents it as not a theory. He starts off presuming a condition of antediluvian earth that no one can know. Even supposing that the earth/eden was perfect, no one could ever prove that the pressure was higher, the oxygen higher, etc, etc....all of his models are pure guesses. Then...

Re: God and parasitic disease

This of course doesn't prove that venom becomes less toxic in the chamber but, it is considered by these scientists as a possibility worth investigating. So, ultimately anyone can dismiss the whole concept since there are not a multitude of studies backing it but, for me there is enough evidence to...

Re: God and parasitic disease

The fact that he was given a patent does not validate the findings of the device, nor does it in any way give his theories credibility. There are plenty of patented devices that were pure rubbish. Hyperbaric oxygenation therapy, in the article cited, is nothing new. In the examples of the snake bite...

Re: God and parasitic disease

I looked at the site, and I couldn't find any of his emprical tests: Specifically: How did he test for toxicity of the venom (did he? it looked like he just examined it's structure) Did he test for overall fitness of the snake (metabolism, digestive, reproductive health) Has he done any tests for th...

Re: God and parasitic disease

There is a line of thought that sin didn't necessarily change the organisms but affected the relationships between mankind and the earth and the organisms. Another investigation at the creation evidence museum, the gnarled 'spaghetti-like' formation of copperhead snake venom as seen under the scann...

Re: Please Introduce Yourself Here

Hi everyone, I am looking to join in discussions of biblical understanding with others here as it seems like a decent enough online board. I have been studying science and the religions of the world for over 30 years and I think now is a good time to test my understandings and see how others unders...

There is a line of thought that sin didn't necessarily change the organisms but affected the relationships between mankind and the earth and the organisms.

Re: The Pope and Johnny

I've heard the first one, merely a joke about how well known the first guy is, especially compared to the pope. I've heard a different version that elaborates on how the first guy knows so many people that he even knows the pope! and thus the joke about the dude recognizing him

second one...??

Re: Why do bad things happen to Christians? A modified poe

God doesn't promise a trouble free life, in fact He guarantees that we will face trials and persecution. Some trials are simply because of natural evil, tornadoes, sickness. I have been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis for 14 years now and god has not healed me yet. He has graciously provided medic...
