Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

Great point Stu! Maybe Hugh thinks the biblical story about Jesus, is a fable as well. At least that would be consistent. Finally happened. Your saracm has went over your head. "Has went"?

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

Hugh, Do you want to back up your assertion that most Christians believe the story of Noah's Ark is a fable? Wishful thinking prrhaps.

Re: "What time is"

But any person can easily enough find articles discussing the nature of time in a way that shows that it is a bit much for anyone to declare that they know all about it. That is my point; did you have one? I doubt very much anyone has said that we know all about what time is. But we do know a great...

Re: Transitional / intermediate

I've been accused plenty of times -- right Here in fact -- of believing in a book that is full of errors but Does have Some merit for moral / ethical issues. But, I've never had any reason To doubt the reliability Of God's Word. And I've shared with someone about Jesus Christ being the Perfect Lamb...

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

Rubbish, the evidence for evolution is not "vast", in fact the evidence that is available is quite small I suppose it depends on your definition of 'vast', and how you go about counting it. In my opinion the evidence is indeed 'vast'. It extends to research into every corner of the living world. En...

Conclusion before evidence is what you are recommending. You might not like it so well if you are the accused, dont youbthin...
