Evolution

I wondered if I was posting this to the correct topic. What I am suggesting has little to do with the actual mechanics of evolution. I see no real difference between science and religion. Both are talking about different aspects of only one reality, they see it from different perspectives, but there...

Evolution

I just finished an adventure novel which is based in quantum mechanics and biology. It gave me an interesting insight, evolution is controlled from the future. It is the future that predicates and defines the mechanics that we see as evolution. I instantly took this a step further, this is the basis...

They have explanations, it's simply a matter of what people believe are plausible. Their explanation rests on random mutations that provided for reproductive and survival advantages. Natural selection simply then selected those that had those mutations that fit the demands of the environment. So, y...

Because I am honestly curious, where does it explicitly say in the Bible that is is a sin to be homosexual? The reason I say explicitly is because the Bible is a work of literature and therefore open to interpretation, no matter who you are. However, there are explicit statements (the 10 Commandmen...

Thank you Prewrath rap. No where in Revelation does it ever mention Rome, in fact Rome is only mentioned by name in Acts and Paul's epistles. Therefore the possibility is open that the city mentioned is not Rome, and if, as many believe, the prophecy is in the future then it could easily be Jerusale...

It may be that I am getting more impatient as I get older, but I get frustrated by many of you on this site. You all have good minds but you are just using them to pick each other to death. This website looks like a spiderweb, you are sitting here waiting for a gnat to blunder in so you can strain a...

It actually doesn't surprise me that you would quote the so called "corporate line". The fact remains that Jerusalem, especially in modern times, encompasses seven hills. The judgement that fell on first century Jerusalem did not come from a conventional interpretation of scripture, they thought the...

I noticed something while reading the gospels last week that I hadn't seen before. Luke 21:20 says that when you see the armies around Jerusalem, run. If you look at Mark and Matthew that is the precise point at which they are referring to Daniel. Thus Luke defines the abomination of desolation as a...

Futurism is the belief that the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21) and the Book of Revelation concern future events. (Future Tribulations period, Future Beast, Future Temple, etc.) Preterism teaches that these things took place in the First Century (70 AD), just like the Bible says the...

Very much so. The acceptance is a result of the receipt of wisdom, suddenly knowing that He is real and has done everything that is written about Him. It is a result of knowing that He knows far more about your life than you do, giving you the ability to trust Him to guide you. At some point in the ...
