Re: ID...why isn't it religion?

Many atheists consider ID to be psuedo science but recently I've been talking to atheists that say it's just "religion in disguise." So my question is the following: Why isn't ID religion? I would think that since evolution is, weather those who hold firm to it or not know it, a religion, it would ...

Re: The Authority Of Scripture

yes, I agree Me too. I may have an issue with flawless but it's only a small, insignificant one. Why do you have an issue with it being flawless? When the NT was believed to be written, and it has been proven when it was by dating the papary it was written on, there were more than enough eye witnes...

Re: Resurrection - Letting Punishment Slide

Welcome, Screwtape ! Hopefully I can help you have a better understanding of the Ressurection. I've often heard the resurrection reduced to rather simplistic terms for the purpose of dismissing it. This argument generally goes along the lines of something like: the resurrection is nothing more than ...

Re: Memetic Theory

Dawkins himself did not provide a sufficient explanation of how the replication of units of information in the brain controls human behaviour and ultimately culture, since the principal topic of the book was genetics The above quote is from Wikipedia. I am not a great scientist. But I do know that ...

Re: The Rapture....and a bunch of "dead" Christians?

How many (total) resurrection are there going to be? Thanks, Ador The Bible tells us of two resurrections. The first one is mentioned in Revelation 20:5. This is after the Tribulation before the millennial reign of Christ. I would guess that the second one will be after the millennial reign. See al...

Re: Darwin and the Holocaust

Actually, Jews trace their ancestry through the mother (i.e. you're only an ethnic Jew if your mother was as well), I'm Jewish through my mom, through hers, through both of my grandmother's parents, and both of theirs, etc.... Now, in order for me to claim Ahlya, they look at the fathers side of th...

Cell phone vs. Bible

I wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our cell phone? What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets? What if we flipped through it several times a day? What if we used it to receive messages from the text? What if we treated it like we couldn't live without it? Wha...

Re: Gene "Doping"

This was deffinately an interesting article. Strange how they look at this method of introducing a lasting gene into the body for specifically using in atheletes. It would probably benifit even more people if they were to use this type of scientific find for finding a cure, or even helping with park...

Re: Darwin and the Holocaust

My best response would be we just don't know if Darwinism led to the Holocaust or any other type of persecution.... I would say deffinately not. Darwin or not, the persecution of the Jews during that time would have happened anyway. I believe that Satan found a tool to use, Hitler, to try and destr...

Re: DEATH

Since you refered to the rapture, I'll cite the verses many hold to be concerning that. 1 Cor. 15:51 Behold, I show you a mystery:We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. 52 In a moment, In the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be ra...

Re: Darwin and the Holocaust

If you watched Expelled, then you know it made at least an indirect (if not direct) link between Darwin and Nazi Germany. I have yet to see Expelled. But it does look good. As far as Darwinism and Nazi Germany, from what I understand about "natural selection" and how it was applied by Hitler, he ha...

Re: What are "days" in Genesis 1 really?

The late Pope John Paul II was one. Never met him, so I hold true to what I said before. I do believe that evolution occurs on a smaller scale than people think. I fell that God has alowed evolution in certain species as time progressed since the flood to adapt to changes in the global atmospheric ...

Re: Unconditional Love

How does this kind of love come about - how does it work and develop? What is missing? I will try and answer these questions to the best of my ability. This type of love can only come about from and through God/Holy Spirit/Jesus. It was evident when God created man. He spoke everything else into ex...

Re: Please Introduce Yourself Here

Hello everybody. I wish I would have seen this before I started posting, but oh well. I have been spending time on another forum debating religion and making a stand for Jesus.
