Re: Why?

I just don't see the logic in a god deciding to have a book (containing his 'word') that's open to so many interpretations. Perhaps when individual sections of the Bible are taken out of context could you interpret it differently. But if you understand the complete narrative of the entire Bible fro...

Error in a page

Just would like to report an error on the following page. http://www.godandscience.org/apologetics/religion_as_child_abuse.html In the section "Religion as child abuse", the second chart in the first row labeled "Drug Usage vs. Importance of Religion" conflicts with the title of the image that is be...

Re: Are "Violent" video games wrong?

In my opinion, violence in games or any other form of entertainment isn't wrong in itself. If the goal of a game is to defend your home from invaders, you will have violence. However, glorifying violence is wrong. Glorified violence (ie excessive blood, extreme killing methods, etc) is unnecessary a...

Re: Curious about YEC position

This is just my thoughts on this subject. If I can program a virtual world on my computer in a week's time, I believe that God could create the Earth in that much time as well. As for the age question, when I create plants in my virtual world, they aren't saplings. When I create animals, they aren't...

Creation of Life in a Lab

It looks like some scientists are close to creating life from non-life. They already got some molecules doing lifelike stuff, such as replicate and compete with one another. Some of these scientists are NOT calling it life just yet as they have yet to observe these molecules evolve new features. htt...

All of God's laws are definitely right. Why would you even consider him wrong with something?

Re: Imagining the Tenth Dimension

That was a lot to explain in that short clip and I didn't quite understand it all, but it was quite helpful in helping me understand the ideas of extra dimensions.

Re: Did Dr. Ross Fudge The Facts?

Not if I was omnipotent :ewink: . But anyway... what makes you think this world is a test by God? A behaviourologist would experiment on mice because his knowledge about the is incomplete: he doesn't know what they'll do next. A computer programmer, however, has 'complete' knowledge of his program,...

Re: Did Dr. Ross Fudge The Facts?

Yes, but why? What is it about a "true understanding of Jesus" that made you doubt evolution? Why didn't it make you doubt, say, Kirchhoff's circuit laws? Well, when you do understand who Jesus is and why he was sent to our world, you would also understand the need for our world to have a designer....

Re: Did Dr. Ross Fudge The Facts?

Is there anything in particular you can mention that would make an educated person doubt either the theory of abiogenesis or the theory of common descent? Well to qualify for the "educated" part, I graduated from Stevens Institute of Technology with a B.E. in computer engineering and I currently wo...

Re: Fossil Record- Interesting points

Neither of you addressed this: Viruses inserted themselves in DNA on Earth, even if viruses were created by god too. There must have not been any viruses in 'god-given' DNA originally. That just doesn't make sense. If god wanted to help his creations against certain diseases which he himself create...

Re: Fossil Record- Interesting points

Why would an all-powerful and all-knowing god need some "templates"? I thought only beings who are very limited in their intelligence and memory capacity need templates. The most knowledgeable programmers I know use templates. The feeble-minded ones start from scratch every time. I believe that an ...
