Re: The Rise of AI, the singularity and the bible and Jesus coming soon

If you take a look around you we are in the age of the rise of AI and multiple revolutions of fields, notably biological and AI and quantum computers. With these tools you can track every thing a person does and every purchase a person makes. The most concerning is the rise of AI and "superintellig...

He just says that it is wrong and the people that wrote it knew no better. Whether you believe the Bible promotes a flat stationary earth is not the point, Heiser...

Stu wrote: It's pretty clear from the above quote that Heiser thinks that some of the writers used their OWN knowledge rather than the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

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 rou...

Re: Dr. Mike Heiser on Noah's Flood

I see a lot of figures of speech that are no more or less technically accurate than... "the sun rises in the east and sets in the west" But I don't see anything in those figures of speech that state that the earth is flat. Just like everyone who uses the phrase "the sun rises in the east and sets i...

Re: Dr. Mike Heiser on Noah's Flood

Just a quick word on Heiser. You know that he says that the Bible teaches a flat earth and that the Hebrews believed that the earth was flat, immovable and had a solid firmament encompassing the entire earth. Let me just add though that while he does teach that, he doesn't hold to that view himself...

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: Excited About this Book!

Enjoy Meyer's stuff.

Still have his tome Signature in the Cell that I meant to read. 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.

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

DB aren't you the one who said that you trust bodies like the FDA? There are so many products that the FDA have approved that are outright carcinogenic and have been banned by most other countries but the US approves them. If your idea of a trustworthy institution is the FDA you are probably blinded...

Re: Covid Vaccines - Trial For The Mark Of The Beast

Coming in from a bit of a conspiracy angle here, but is it just a little strange that all the vaccine companies just happen to have their vaccines ready all at the same time, when a vaccine for this type of virus has never been made before? That's quite the coincidence. I suppose one could argue tha...

Re: Covid Vaccines

Come on Bowling, you’re smarter than that. And based on your background I would expect you to be smart enough not to get sucked into Kennedy's anti-vaccine nonsense. My approach is very simple... If I want accurate information regarding God and the Bible I am going to rely on information from multi...
