That, of course, assumes the physical Adam and Eve were created. It can be argued that the creation of Adam and Eve was accomplished when God breathed a spirit into an already existing animal. That would reconcile with evolution (by design). What is the evidence for this then? IT explains man's uni...

I have considered that a great deal but I had to dismiss it as it tends to show God as a liar. Since we know God cannot lie, the theory can't be right. An example: If the universe is created already in motion then light was created in transition. This implies that the supernova we seem to be observ...

I will limit my answers to certain points as this is getting nowhere. Thirdly, I find it difficult to understand why you interpret these as a resurrection of the spirit, rather than the physical body. When Christ was raised, what came out of the tomb? His spirit (while his body remained in the tomb)...

This is a personal thought I just wanted to share with you: If I am to doubt that Mary, Peter and Paul (and the rest of the old gang) are in heaven with Jesus, what hope do I have left for myself? Do you have any problem with the hope of the resurrection? It was a mere observation. You are taking i...

Aside from the resurrection of Jesus Christ (which is too obvious to recite), here are a few quotes from a multitude of scriptural evidence. How does the resurrection of Christ prove that 'Mary and the saints were resurrected in spirit and are with Jesus'? Speaking of what happens to a person when ...

After reading the article I must say it is very well written. Altho I am not a christian as a scientist Ionly have very minor problems with it. It even states that the Bible is by no means a complete account, I would also like to add that science is likewise an incomplete account. Are you referring...

... Catholics do not believe in any way, shape or form that Mary and the saints are dead. They are very much alive in Christ and, therefore, the practice creates no biblical contradiction. This requires a definition of 'dead' which does not appear to be revealed in Scripture. Is that something like...

" IN Exodus 20:3-6 God forbids making graven images for the purpose of idolatry but does not forbid the making of graven images per se. Elsewhere he commands that statues and other graven images be carved for religious purposes. The Catholic Church permits statues because they remind us of unseen t...

I don't know why so many YEC's refuse to consider that God could have started the universe already in motion. Most seem to see "light on the way" as a deception by God and thus dismiss it out of hand. I personally don't see it that way and have no problem at all with 'appearance of age' because giv...

Re: The distance to the stars. And Old earth creationism.

BGood, your example, while technically accurate, is not an indication of the age of the planet earth but rather an indication of the age of the galaxy. Earth could have been formed at any time in the past and its distance from those stars would still be 100,000 light years. I'm not saying it did or...

Re: The distance to the stars. And Old earth creationism.

Someone asked earlier what is the evidence for an old earth. A good example would be the distance to the stars. Now this would have to assume two things. 1. The speed of light is more or less constant. 2. The techniques for measuring star composition are valid. This is how it works. The closer star...
