Yes, August, all the best and good strength in your translations and commentaries! It's nice to hear about three Dutch philosophers, without any reserve labeled 'great', but I have somewhat of an itch where Kuyper is concerned. I only read something written by him once -- an article on the relations...

The Bible has the answer. They initially evolved to humans but couldn't quit monkeying around.

Amazing how creationism solves all of the problems of evolution!

To which Veronica could counter, what do you think is the point of asking anyone on earth to pray for you? ;)

Interesting. If you strip away the uniformitarian assumptions, something very like creationism might emerge.

If execution is not murder then how do you explain the actions of Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet, or that of the Chinese government after the Tiananmen Square massacre? They termed what they did as executions yet the people they killed were innocent. Just a point I thought I would bring up. :) T...

If 'intelligent' has a black-or-white definition, define it.

Your definition of 'intelligence' is probably meaningless, though.

I don't feel like watching a two-hour video... Can the Devil know the future and has planted all these things in order to deceive man? He can probably predict a lot of things, since his knowledge is great. I don't know and don't really care how far he can look into the future. Has he planted 'all th...

You're right. Although I was a lot more concerned about the effect the game might have on a vast number of skeptics. This foul game will be fair game for those who already hate Christianity for some reason.

Turgonian, it was stupid unintelligent decisions that allowed German national socialism to regain military power; they were supposed to be disarmed after WW1. The Nazi's wouldn't have had to be beaten if the so-called intelligent leaders in Europe had enforced the rules signed at Versailles. The Na...

Hello? I said Nazi Germany was beaten . By unintelligent beings, I assume? If you think that the human species is unintelligent, go outside and talk to a member of it. As you know, a species is made up of individuals. I can't count how many times I've thought 'Uneducated people are stupid', then tal...

Those are the simplified views which should be easy to understand. However, as most parents have found out, the question of whether dogs have "souls" and whether cats have "souls" comes up. Well, do they? Many people will say that dogs have souls. I ask you, do rabbits? If so, do mice? If so, do sp...

1) Jesus didn't exist historically. Nonsense (that's a link) -- would you give up your family, your wealth, everything you had, and become an outcast, even to the point of dying a most painful death, for a mythical person you invented ? Besides, this fails to take into account significant historica...

Viator, the problem is defining intelligence. Good point, we do have difficulty in defining the meaning of the word intelligence. It becomes even more difficult when one attempts to define what is an intelligent species. Stop, people, stop... I couldn't read on when I read this... Do you think that...
