Re: Marxism.

Do you believe that sharing resources is inherently evil? If so, how do you explain the actions book of Acts? How people interpret a philosophy is no fault of the philosophy itself. We don't judge Christianity to be true or untrue based the actions of the Crusades or Salem Witch Trials or by the ant...

Re: HELLO

As many people probably gravitate toward science like GodAndScience.org because they are experiencing doubts with their faith, I think that it should be our goal to provide an environment where people who are doubting or who are considering Christianity can feel safe.

Re: abiogenesis

Well, we know they did because Christianity spread very quickly in different directions in the first few years/decades, to the point where it was all over the Roman empire and beyond, which shows that they spread out individually while still preaching the same message. Also, the crucifixion of Jesus...

Re: abiogenesis

It's really difficult to sum up all of the evidence for Jesus's resurrection, because entire books have been written on the subject, so I'll only provide the basics of the argument. The existence of Jesus and his execution has been verified by non-Christian historians such as Josephus and a number o...

Pure trollish behavior. Is this a lesson in "how to get all your threads moved to the garbage bin"?

Re: relationship between Faith and Evidence...?

I'd agree, in the abstract, it doesn't necessarily need it, especially if you're into syncretic stuff or mere philosophical systems, but what inherently prevents evidence from having a role?

Re: Do all of god's creations go to heaven?

The Bible is clear throughout that eating animals is perfectly fine, contrary to what radical vegetarians want to have you think. Um, "radical vegetarians" don't usually use the Bible to argue in favor of vegetarianism...and vegetarianism isn't really a radical position. Maybe you're referring to v...

Re: relationship between Faith and Evidence...?

The biblical meaning of faith is closer to what we would call loyalty than it is to belief, so this objection fails, and in all honesty, is really no more than an attempt to play with semantics.

Re: abiogenesis

some good replies in here and i agree with that essay i think it was about if your faith goes into crisis everytime a new theory comes out it never really stood on solid ground. i see this as true in my life, i use to be a firm believer but just recently as ive kinda taken an interest in science an...

Re: Wealth and Poverty

If you think of things in terms of eternity, prospering or not prospering on earth for 50-60 years max is like a millisecond compared to what your eternal reward or punishment is (and the Bible does indicate that we are rewarded and punished based on our deeds in addition to our placement in heaven ...

Re: abiogenesis

I've been awake for 22 hours, so allow me to respond later today in detail after I've gotten some sleep. For now, I will say that a couple of years ago, I went through an intense crisis of faith and doubt going through very similar lines as what you've posted so I can understand your mindset (by the...

Re: abiogenesis

Silvertusk, I didn't mean to imply it wasn't a usefulu tool. Science has increased my faith in God and increased my sense of wonder and I think that science apologetics definitely have their place as a powerful evangelical tool. Since I worded that poorly, this is what I meant: Growing up, the only ...

Re: Marxism.

The notion that socialism is of the devil and unbiblical is, in itself, unbiblical. The blog post linked to is replete of personal attacks that I personally find unChristlike in nature and presentation, in that they go beyond their stating the biblical case and consist of invective. I consider my pe...
