Theistic Evolution perspective from a Jewish person

"This (acceptance of God) will never change, not even if the latest scientific notion that the genesis of all the multitude of organic forms on earth can be traced back to one single, mot primitive, primeval form of life should ever appear to be anything more than what it is today, a vague hypothesi...

Re: El vs Elohim

wrain62, El Elohim, same thing. The latter is plural, but it often refers to one God as the plural of majesty. Dueteronomy 6:4 affirms that elohim, although plural in grammar, means one God. The late Gleason Archer, while debating some Muslim schalors, stated that the plural of majesty did not exis...

Re: Prayer for the Deems

As most of you know, my wife, Carole, has had a brain tumor for some time. Back in 1996 at the initial diagnosis, she had prayed that God would allow her to raise our three sons, Matthew, Andrew, and Mark. I am Matthew. My younger brother is Mark. My older brother is Andrés. This is strangely simil...

Re: God and parasitic disease

dayage said Therefore, the curse was on this ground/land. Eden, once a paradise, would now produce thorns and thistles like the rest of the world. I never saw it like that before. Reason for further study. :) Whatever....I maintain that the earth and world in which we live is cursed and is the reas...

Re: God and parasitic disease

You take some of the worst things with suffering and say, "there enough difficulties in the world, why these?", but there will always be a horrendous suffering ; so where would you put a cut off point? Also, Humans are very plastic in that our suffering is relative what we are used to. The less the...

Re: Response to Atheist Rally

That whole "reason" catchphrase is so disgusting. Apparently the sheep-like followers of Dawkins and his crowd don't realize that, given atheism, they can't "reason"... that many atheistic leaders believe that there's no such thing as consciousness or free will and so obviously there's no such thin...

Re: God and parasitic disease

The insidious nature in which many of these parasites invade and take over the body, the temple of God , just boggles the mind as to why God created them. Surely suffering from a physical injury is on a different plane than suffering from centimeter-long tapeworm cysts in the brain? Your response i...

Re: God and parasitic disease

Suffering is independant of evil. Why doesn't put us in a clean cardboard world with abundant recources? Because then nothing needs to be taken seriously and we would go on with a solipsistic existence. It is to avoid such existence and let us draw together in community, with other humans and with G...

Re: Genetic Adam and Eve

Not sure if I read it right, but the articles seem to assert that Adam and Eve in the genetic context were together, but the Y-chromosome Adam and mitochondrial Eve were not together, according to what we know now. What do you mean? I think I've read your idea about most recent common ancestors bef...

Re: What Would the World Look Like if Run by New Atheists?

I think of "1984" or "Brave New World", or some countries of today like North Korea, where utter evil, propaganda, and twisted thinking pervades the society. The thing is, another religion will replace the one the atheists claim they are trying to eradicate - self-worship, worship of the State, wor...

Genetic Adam and Eve

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Y-chromosomal_Adam "In human genetics, Y-chromosomal Adam (Y-MRCA) is the most recent common ancestor (MRCA) from whom all living people are descended patrilineally (tracing back only along the paternal lines of their family tree). Many studies report that Y-chromosomal...

Re: Check this anti-abortion site out.

I'm sure you've heard this analogy: "The development of an entity from conception through birth to childhood is continuous. There is no natural place to draw a line. Therefore, we should say that a fetus is a person from the moment of conception." "The development from an acorn into an oak tree is ...
