Re: Using the Lord's Name in Vain

Any use, ANY use, which is vain would be applied here. Which means using it as an expression of anger instead of worship, or using it to communicate idolatry, as in Benny Hin. To use God's name as a curse is extremely offensive, as is using it without worship. I would far prefer to hear any other cu...

Re: I need help. (female problems.)

I would think one of the best ways to gt to know each other would be to create some non-threatening group activities (hiking, game nights, movie nights, etc) that allow you to interact in a manner that will help you to get to know her and for her to get to know you. IN my singles groups at churches,...

Re: Creation Wiki

Here is an honest question. (and it cuts both ways.) How many people who fall under the OEC are themselves actually familiar with the positions enough to defend them in any intellectual manner? (Yes, I know we don't know all OECers, and I know we could ask the same of YEC.) From a biological standp...

Re: Day Age doctrine in regards to scripture, and God's char

Dave, That's fine if you want to discuss Humphreys in the other topic. Frankly, what you posted from Humphreys, has no relevance to the statement you made: Ive concluded that if Day Age philosophy is true that it causes specific scripture and major doctrines to make no sense whatsoever, and, has a ...

Re: Who gets into Heaven?

Ivellious, if you are seriously interested, I would highly recommend Mere Christianity, by CS Lewis. At least for a good start. It's an easy read and you can even find it online.

Re: Humans cause yeast to become multicellular, a threat to

That is cool.

I still hold, though, to the idea that these receive far less scrutiny than they should because the researchers are merely looking for things that are confirming their already made conclusions.

Re: Humans cause yeast to become multicellular, a threat to

hmmm, should a scientist already expect a certain outcome??

I mean, of course they are going to accept it, so the scrutiny will not be there.

Again, it is intriguing, but considering that they have already accepted it, there is hardly any hard skepticism, is there?

Re: Humans cause yeast to become multicellular, a threat to

For instance, Think about what has to happen, at the least, for unicellular organisms to become multicellular 1. Cells to adhere to each other, to which this experiment seems to lend evidence. 2. - Differentiation (what causes the differentiation? ...the cells communicate and change the expression o...

Re: Humans cause yeast to become multicellular, a threat to

Gotcha, didn't know about the details of that particular journal. Ultimately what we have here is simply a selection experiment for yeast cells to have stronger binding to each other. Considering that they are known to do this already, it seems that this is taking a character trait that already exis...

Re: Humans cause yeast to become multicellular, a threat to

Thanks Rich, I was wondering about the differentiation idea.

Is PNAS not peer-reviewed?
