Re: Top 3 Evidences for Evolution?

Cruelty in nature was one of the results of the fall. "Cruelty" in nature is part of the ecosystems that God designed into nature. Animal death is not a result of one man's sin. But hey, don't let evidence get in the way of your dogmatism. ;) You are the dogmatic one! How do you know that death has...

Re: Please Introduce Yourself Here

Nessa, New Zealand is a cool place to live - especially now. Our third one was a daughter, which was a special gift for us all. I prayed she would compliment all our family, which she does with here joy and vitality. Each of our children are so special and different - a gift from God. Your two boys ...

I often think faster than I type and make errors. So where are you from? Family? Kids?

Re: Both neanderthals and humans mated with each other.What does your creation interpretation say?

RickD, I have come around the other way going from an OEC to a YEC. Looking at the evidence of both over the years, I find the critics of YEC don't objectively look at the evidence but name call, while at the same time accept much of the junk that is passed off as science by evolutionists. I like Ke...

Re: God's Precision in the Universe/Measures of Starlight Time

examining an old earth cosmology, I don't think YECists have come anywhere close to spending as much. There is a wide open opportunity to propose new theories based on a YEC position which I think we will see in the future.

Re: God's Precision in the Universe/Measures of Starlight Time

Here you assume that God created the universe only using natural law. If God supernaturally created the earth using his creative power, then we may never have a scientific explanation. Another possibility is that we have not adequately investigated the possible theories related to a young earth. A t...

Re: Heard this discussion about a shacked together couple

For new believers, who are living with a partner (male and female), though not married, 1 Cor. 7:10-24 can give guidance. First, you would want to communicate your new found faith with your partner. The general rule is to remain in the state in which God has called you - though some discernment is n...

Re: Stumbling Men

Just as many men walk around with tight slacks and shirts that flaunt their bodies as woman. The visual stimulation in men is much more pronounced compared to women. You can see this in advertising where they use sex to sell to men. Feminism tries to erase the differences in the sexes. My original ...

Re: Both neanderthals and humans mated with each other.What does your creation interpretation say?

RickD, yes I have read some of Ken Ham's literature (and DVDs) and it is very good if you will objectively hear it. I find many Christians want to be "respectable" so they renounce YEC. I am more interested in being true to science and to the scriptures.

Re: Both neanderthals and humans mated with each other.What does your creation interpretation say?

It is more like this. Imagine that you and your spouse (imagine one if you don't have one) escape from world disaster and have children to restart the human population of the world. If someone was able to find the DNA of the old dead people prior to the disaster and compare that DNA with your progen...

Re: Thoughts on YEC

Although evolution should be rejected. It was known before evolution became a scientific theory that the earth is old and not young and these scientists who believed it and discovered it were Christians who were not at all influenced by evolution. They just honestly discovered the earth is very old...
