Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

What of Scripture though? Day-Age is one synthesis between Scripture and what is seen as evidence from science that conforms to a Progressive Creation model. Thanks for the links. I had a read of them. I guess this part of your reply is what I'd like to comment on. I don't agree that what is presen...

Re: New Theological discourse happening

The work on the cross was to suffer death for ALL men and to save ALL mankind..... See..... 1) 1 Timothy 2:4 -- “[God our Savior] will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.” :clap: This scripture clearly spells out God’s will. Other Bible versions say that God wants...

Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

Several people have hovered over a dichotomy between evolution and purpose. Mazzy says that belief in evolution denies the possibility that "God planned to ultimately create mankind", and agrees with thatkidakayoungguy in saying: "I figure God intentionally made man." I don't think the dichotomy ex...

Re: New Theological discourse happening

There is a new Theological discourse happening within the modern western Church that mixes the current world views into the the gospel message: Love is redefined, acceptance of Islam viewed as a virtue, Politically correct thinking, all faiths are valid leading to heaven, etc... ...and many other t...

Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

If I understand it correctly, Day-Age Creationism still agrees with the order in which things were created in the bible, placing fruit-trees on the earth 'ages' before there were fish in the sea. Is that right? While Progressive Creationism allows for organisms to appear on earth in the order illus...

Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

You know, I've been accused of believing in a "tinkering God", and while I'm not phased and don't see it as such, it seems any real "tinkering" can only ever have intelligence; or "recruiting" genes to serve some purpose, such as the "extra-embryonic membrane specification and patterning"; or "addi...

Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

In any case, an important take away I saw is that lifeforms may not necessarily start off "simple". While they might seem that way at a surface-level phenotypically, we see upon deeper inspection that earlier apparently "simple" lifeforms are actually not simple at all, but more complex than worms ...

Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

However, evolutionists need to remember that they do not align with the theory of evolution. To do so means one does not believe God planned to ultimately create mankind. Rather, TOE suggests mankind was stumbled upon and could just as easily not appeared at all. I suppose it can depend on the vers...

Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

See this is good evidence for a creator god. Sure it doesn't rule out evolution but ti does give strong support to intelligent design. My question is why do people deny it so much? I figure it's bc they reject the creator, as stated in Romans 1. I more or less agree in that organisms are intelligen...

Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

I hope Kurieou didn't feel vaguely insulted at all, especially as I agreed with him in several ways. No doubt he's capable of letting me know if he feels so, or has risen above it. And my point about actually reading a paper was about the press release in The Scientist, which referred to the Resear...

Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

The sea anemone in question, Nematostella vectensis , is certainly not "one of the oldest living animal species on Earth". There is no reason to suppose it is any more ancient than any other living species. Maybe you could explain to Kurieuo how a Tiny sea anemone from the Lower Cambrian of China i...

Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

This is quite an old paper (from 2007), so hardly news, ..... Might I recommend that commenters read the actual paper, These comments above are 'vaguely' abusive and a rude reply to Kurieuo, that is uncalled for. It appears hughfarey, that although you take insult easily to the point that you refus...

Re: Are we really 99 Percent the Same as Chimps?

NOTE: Even bananas surprisingly still share about 60% of the same DNA as humans! I don't think anyone will try to uphold that humans are really 60 Percent the same as bananas. The term 'the same' appears to allude to a DNA comparison. However, on a physical level there are arguments that mankind is...
