Re: Atheist question

Back to the "God of the Gaps" argument BS: The argument says, "We don't know, therefore God". Sort of the "brute fact of the gap argument": We don't know, therefore it is brute fact. The problem is that IF the person invoking God can EXPLAIN how/why God is the answer, it is NO LONGER a God of the Ga...

No basement! Besides that, he signed into the Navy, no matter if he doesn't make it as a seal. But the guys he goes to basic training with are all special-ops commitments - because just to qualify for the seals, you must past rigorous, bi-weekly fitness benchmarks and be offered a contract, well be...

Re: Well, today's the day!

Well, my oldest son, Duncan, is leaving for the Navy today - first to boot camp in Illinois and immediately after that to SEAL trials, in California. We may not see him for nearly a year - and have no idea when he'll even be allowed to text. He just finished his first two years of college, but deci...

Re: Atheist question

God of the gaps? science of the gaps... Difference is that when we say GOD we are referring to an actual ANSWER to the question, whereas the "science of the gap" argument is an expression of hope and faith. See, in GOD we see the driving force of creation and sustainability AND the very attributes t...

Re: No such thing as a "gay gene"

Homosexual lifestyles pose greater risks.

Gay men have higher STD rates, Higher risk rates ( more dangerous lifestyles).
Lesbian couples have higher domestic abuse rates.

Re: Convinced yet?

They ( Democrats) continue to put all their eggs into one basket.
At first I didn't get it but after seeing those that are suppose to oppose Trump in 2020, I get it now.

Re: Atheist question

Of cource he can't, natural science isn't about proof, it is about evidence. Nobody can prove that there is gravity everywhere on the earth but still everyone assumes that the gravitation theory is correct. The evidence is total. The same with evolution. Wow. So Gravity is a LAW. We can replicate, ...

Re: Atheist question

This is were some people starting calling into question evolution. There is no evidence ( much less proof) that information can come from random mutation. This has never been documented in any experiment and has never been repeated. It is totally ok to simply say, "we don't know yet". That is what a...

That even though he was a simple peasant, he is more renown now and had more written about him than kings and emperors ??

Re: Atheist question

I'm not familiar with the information in our cells so I don't know how to define them. How do you define them? Here is a good discussion on the topic by Stephen Meyer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7c9PaZzsqEg It's only 15 minutes long, and Meyer does a good job explaining the nature of the infor...
