Re: Can an Evangelical Christian Accept Evolution?

what we do know, which is that biodiversity has its origin in evolution by natural selection. Natural selection on its own can not account for all the diversity we see. It is certainly far from an agreed consensus in the scientific community. I believe it can, Natural Selection dictates that only t...

Re: What makes a person "Christian"?

While I still have not ruled out the existence of some form of god. I'm finding it increasingly difficult to follow a Christian god. It's evident that my local environment differs from a traditional Christians. Highly multi-cultural I have friends over a wide-variety of religions constantly telling ...

Re: Biology verse Morales?

Inertial frames of reference and relativity are of the same theory, yet not the same thing. In physics, we use the term Inertial Frame of Reference for an object moving at a constant rate. There is no way for that object to know how fast it's going. In the reference frame of the object, it is statio...

Re: Biology verse Morales?

Everything is relative. If everything is relative then why are we discussing anything? Anyone's opinion is just as good as the next person's. "Anyone's opinion is just as good as the next person's" - Relative to you. A perfect example is what shape is the Earth? There is no absolute frame of refere...

Re: Biology verse Morales?

While I believe we are very similar to animals we have some differences. First humans gain pleasure from sex, which other animals do not. Animals do not rape the young, as they have no desire to. If humans where more like animals it's arguable that we would be less immoral, only having sex for stri...

Re: An argument against "fine turning" of the universe

Where to start? Interesting fact, while the creation of the Earth is not impossible it is implausible. What about the universe originating from nothing? Is that plausible. First of all, scientists do not claim the universe came from nothing. We simply do not know, we have theories, but no proof as ...

Re: An argument against "fine turning" of the universe

In my judgment, the strongest arguments against fine-tuning take into account specific formulations. Generalized arguments such as the one in the link in the OP are not nearly as powerful, I don't think. For example, consider Robin Collins' formulation from The Blackwell Companion to Natural Theolo...

Re: An argument against "fine turning" of the universe

Interesting fact, while the creation of the Earth is not impossible it is implausible. There is a low probability that the Earth should exist, many people use this as an argument for the existence of God(s). Yet one only has to look out into space to see this isn't the only answer. Yes, the chance o...

Re: God wins!!

Nobody has scientific evidence that disproves god. Yet there is two sides to this coin as there is no evidence for God. Each side has 'hints' that point to one outcome, yet neither has any scientific proof. To test something it must be observed, if God is of a higher power, he will never be observe...

Re: Signs in the heavens

Humans can't predict activity in the Earth crust and can't even predict the weather reliably. I seriously doubt predicting the end of the world is within our grasp. It's true that no human knows... But God does.. Mark 13:32 This is a question of had for a long time. How does Mark, John etc know wha...

Re: Mormon doctrine racist against blacks

I'm guessing that it's the same reason that intelligent people believe that Jews, or unborn babies are less than human. Imo, a philosophical belief in Darwinian evolution may be one reason why some humans are not fully human in someone's eyes. It's a known fact that Atheists have no personal god. T...
