Re: What do you guys think about this route to marriage?

At risk of beating a dead horse. From the "we believe" link you posted: WE BELIEVE: Mankind was originally created in God's image but being tempted by Satan, chose to sin and rebel against God. As a result of this fallen condition, God's image has been marred and all men and women are born separated...

When I see "Megachurch", I'm extremely skeptical of anything that comes next.

Re: No such thing as a "gay gene"

Keeping in line with my earlier comparison, that is essentially the same as saying "it is not depraved to be left handed, only to write with your left hand". I'd love to hear the rationale behind that! Homosexual love (or " homosexual acts") is akin to writing with your left hand, being "left hande...

Treating homosexuality as though its a moral choice in the same way as stealing or something like that is a completely false comparison.
Where it becomes a valid comparison, is when one commits homosexual acts.

Re: Atheist question

Since we know from experience that it takes intelligence to create computer and mathematical models for the laws of physics, then we can infer that whatever caused the laws of physics as we understand them to work the way they do in our universe is at least more intelligent than those who create ma...

So, Rick, what was your "ah-ha" moment or thing that changed your mind?
I was listening to the radio in my car one day, and I heard a Jewish man talking about yom. He said that it doesn't always mean "24 hour day".

That's when I started looking into the topic for myself.

Re: Atheist question

So, clearly, you are only entertaining the idea that non-intelligent things could produce the events and wonders of the Big Bang, mostly because the only other alternative for you is there had to be a Creator. So clearly you believe an intelligent being could live eternally mostly because the only ...

Re: What REALLY killed the dinosaurs?

Yes, Rick, you nailed it - but did you already know their position, or was it just an educated guess (knowing Ham / AIG)? Um...I used to be a YEC, remember? I've heard/read just about every way they attempt to fit things into the YEC worldview. Remember, it all MUST fit into the last 10,000 years. ...

Re: What REALLY killed the dinosaurs?

DB: There was no asteroid! The asteroid is fabrication perpetuated by evolutionists who are attempting to deceive people into believing that the Bible is wrong. DB isn't far off, per AIG / Ham's take on it! According to Ken Ham ( https://answersingenesis.org/dinosaurs/extinction/first-victims-dino-...

So, what I'd really like to see is someone from the young earth perspective explain how this catastrophic asteroid, of a magnitude capable of extinguishing the dinosaurs, would not have likewise wiped out mankind - which YECs insist lived alongside of men?
