Re: Reasons to Believe Biochemist on Covid-19 Vaccines' Safety

Rick, all I can say is, you better hope and pray that you are wrong, and that these vaccines ARE an important step into greatly diminishing this. Million of Christians around the globe have been praying for a solution - do you think God will NEVER show us a way? Or are we just to trust in dumb luck?...

Re: Reasons to Believe Biochemist on Covid-19 Vaccines' Safety

Does it shock you that people over 80 with serious conditions might be pushed over the edge with a vaccine? Just about ANY serious virus or flu could do the same thing to such people. And this is not happening widespread. Think Covid itself wouldn't likely kill such people - first, think of the many...

Re: Dr. Mike Heiser on Noah's Flood

DB: So from that perspective, you could say that the extent of the Noahic covenant includes everyone who dwells in the same land that descendants of Noah are dwelling in. Of course, IF the flood of Noah was NOT worldwide, then greater humanity is a mixture of ancient humans not only descended from ...

Re: Dr. Mike Heiser on Noah's Flood

Stu, look at a kid riding a merry-go-round horse - he's fixed to the horse, even if it's going up and down, and then that is going round and round. If you had a small wind-up merry-go-round on the back of a moving truck - same thing - the riders are fixed to their horses, up and down, round and roun...

Re: Dr. Mike Heiser on Noah's Flood

DB: God did choose to communicate with Israel using terms and imagery that were understandable with their cultural and cosmological paradigms. However, that is very different from claiming that the Bible 'taught' that the earth was flat. Yes, God never has used something that was false to teach som...

Re: Reasons to Believe Biochemist on Covid-19 Vaccines' Safety

NO medicine is safe for EVERYONE! One man can gulp down a bag of peanuts every day. Another can unknowingly get a small amount in some meal and it can kill him. And every time a person takes a new medicine, it's a risk. I took massive amounts of IV antibiotics for about six months - no problems - th...

What is the belief in science called?
How about... belief in God's 'Natural Revelation'
Absolutely, just that it's not science, but what scientists, even though they don't know it, are truly studying - "the fingerprints of God that are traceable across His Creation.

Re: God and Science

elwishnine: What is the belief in science called? Not sure what you're asking here? There is the scientific method. There is scientific theory and conjecture. And there are testable theories with well-designed experiments and their results. But people confuse these and so often just use the term "s...

It's not overpopulation that is our problem - it's overpopulation OF THE STUPID (yep, unfortunately, much of mankind).

Re: Excited About this Book!

Thanks for the heads-up, DB - I love books like this. Stu: I was heavy into the creationism/ID vs evolution debate back then. Have since moved on and don't get too involved in that debate anymore. Stu, I've moved on a bit as well, but still find great power in certain evidences, like the astounding ...

Re: Reasons to Believe Biochemist on Covid-19 Vaccines' Safety

Rick: Now you’re just being dishonest. You realize that there’s absolutely no way that you could possibly know the long term effects of these vaccines, yet you still continue to claim they are safe and effective. And while you can hope these vaccines will save millions of lives, you don’t know that...
