Re: The Epicurean paradox

"God loves you" If so, whence come pain, sorrow and evil? For all who preach here, I give you Epicurus "Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is wicked. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able n...

Re: Christopher Hitchens passed away

You are a better Christian than I, Stu, because a part of me feels sweet justice whenever I hear something like this happen. Yes, I think it's sad he may never know the glory of God, but he did have free will just like the rest of us, and he chose to live his life as a bigot. Though, I also agree t...

Re: Christopher Hitchens passed away

It is this that makes people think we live by blind faith. Hell is not some arbitrary place that God arbitrarily puts people into when reject him. It is the Power given to our creation(Free Will) that is absolutly respectful to us. The choice to submit to God and the choice to reject him must be po...

Re: Christopher Hitchens passed away

I think one of the many mistakes atheists make is in thinking Christians take delight in telling folks they might be going to hell. I was having a very heated debate with someone on another forum surrounding this very topic. Now I know there are some Christians who do get up on their pedestal, but f...

Gman wrote:I think it is very sad that Hitchens didn't really know what he was attacking. In others words he didn't really understand that he was attacking the G-d of love. A G-d who truly loved him and died for him.

Unfortunately many many people fail to see this point...
Amen to that.

Re: Christopher Hitchens passed away

Saw this on another site: Hitchens gave short shrift to the "insulting" suggestion that cancer might persuade him to change his position where reason had not, arguing that to ditch principles "held for a lifetime, in the hope of gaining favour at the last minute" would be a "hucksterish choice", and...

Re: A few questions

How long is the 7th day? 24 hours? Am I missing something, why are we still in the 7th day of God's creation? A couple things. - Why do you feel God would need to "dumb it down" for ancient man? From what I've read, ancient man might not have been as technologically sophisticated but he sure was as...

Re: A few questions

You should research the main site a bit more... there are some articles about this. Basically what is usually translated as "day" can actually mean "age" or well... Let's say a very long period of time. Yeah some interpret it that way. In fact I've been an OEC for quite some time, but I've recently...

Re: God Particle? Any ideas?

So all praise the holy mathematical equation that has given us life? As John Lennox mentioned in response to the Hawking controversy last year, you have to account for laws too Hawking: Because there is a law of gravity, the universe can and will create itself out of nothing.

Re: A few questions

That typically boils down to a "creation story/religious view vs. big bang theory/science" problem. How is Biblical creation (or any creation theory for that matter) against the Big Bang theory? And how can anything be against science? Science is simply a method. The way I see it, based on scriptur...

Re: Alien Life

Well no there most likely isn't IMO, because that would mean Jesus would have to be sacrificed again would it not? So as far as self-aware beings go, no. Could there be "animal planets" consisting solely of varieties of animal and microbial organisms. Sure. If there really are other self-aware being...
