Re: Why is young earth so important?

Well, thanks, Rick, for pointing out my senior moment - can't believe you remembered it, much less tracked it down. But, then again, you clown aliens have superior abilities. But why is it that when I do a search for a post topic that should be easy to find it's often unfindable. But you can find a...

Re: What if..?

Why would that be a deal breaker, ST? We already know of one set of intelligent creatures who have fallen (demons), and yet the Cross seems to have had no effect on them. Can you lay out your reasoning in a simple argument, because I'm missing a premise somewhere. The best I can see that you have i...

Re: Rational Thinking

Hey, FL, big problem with the link: There's this thing blocking the view of the page, offering a free e-book. I keep clicking the "close" button, but it just reloads the page instead of making the in-window popup go away. I just want to read the article! >_< Edit: After a bit of time, it stopped, so...

Re: Question

Comic books are fiction. Also, many founders of comic books and comic characters are Jewish artists. Comic books also frequently play with world mythologies with regards to some character backstories, and also for villains that challenge the heroes. (Wonder Woman in some incarnations has some elemen...

Re: Transhumanism a possibility or just science fiction

I see. Well, it'd be difficult to upload a consciousness to a machine since not only would the information need to be converted into binary, but also, it would require a very powerful form of data transfer. One can only move so much information at a time, and who knows how fast the data transfer wou...

Re: Transhumanism a possibility or just science fiction

Um, it's not the body that's made in God's image. It's the spirit that is. God is Spirit. As far as the topic of transhumanism goes, it's rather arrogant that people think that they can immortalize themselves in metal, and while there's a lot of growth in technology's usefulness and in creation and ...

Re: Slavery in the Bible

I was making a joke, Paul. X3 I was poking fun at how poorly he worded that. Needless to say, his insistence that he understood is hilariously contrary to the actual content of his responses. Anyway, I already know that he was arguing that God allowing for slavery would be immoral. But the thing is,...

Re: Fundamentals of Science

Hey all, it seems that a lot of people have a misunderstanding of the fundamentals of science. I lay blame for this entirely on the education system. I know I was shocked at the inaccuracy of my "science education" when I got out of high school. First of all, I would like to present some terminolog...

Re: Slavery in the Bible

No matter how you want to explain it, making rules in regards to how slave owners are punished for treating their slaves is immoral as far as im concerned. The fact that rules were made is enough it doesn't matter whether it's if or when they die or what the punishment is it's irrelevant. Stop tell...

Re: Slavery in the Bible

Slavery in the modern slavery was much different than in the bible . They were not forced into it § Forced enslavement of Hebrews was punishable by death. "Anyone who kidnaps another and either sells him or still has him when he is caught must be put to death. " (Ex 21.16) If a man is caught kidnap...

Re: Who made the rule that death is the punishment for sin?

Is there a time or place or context where you would permit a person to own another person as property? You don't really understand what biblical slavery is. How many slaves work for you?

Re: Worldview vs Mindset

"evolve" means change, though often referring to a series of small-scale sequential changes. Jlay's point, as best as I understand it, is that the core fundamentals of his worldview haven't changed significantly, but rather some aspects of has worldview has changed while keeping the whole intact.

Re: Accepted Jesus, But Doesn't Believe He's God

Scripture makes it very clear. Nobody gets to the Father but through Jesus. We must acknowledge, believe that Jesus paid our price on that cross. The bible does NOT say that to be saved we must believe in the trinity and state that Jesus is God. It simply doesn't. If it was the requirement of salva...
