    Cool party trick!

    But why do you want to refreeze the road slush?

    What is interesting is that the Genesis accounts existed as oral tradition for a long time before they were written down. So when they say that the other accounts predate Genesis... what do they really mean?
     
    I am not even sure that predating one piece of literature before another means anything. At best we have flaky similarity... who is to say that the sumerians didn't copy the hebrews?

    Folks, this thread has no fruit.
     
    Lemon, because of your use of profanity, and because you clearly are not meaningful in your engagement with us, I have placed your account on Moderator Review (which means your posts will be invisible until approved by a servant). 
     
    I'm also closing this thread. Anyone who wishes it to be reopened can PM a servant.
     
    God bless,

    Enough.

    Please, no more geocentrism threads.

    There is no fruit to be seen in any of them.

    I think you misunderstand the science of belief formation, and our weakness in terms of cognitive biases. Ever heard of the backfire effect? It means that any evidence I throw your way right now, will likely confirm your belief, rather than refute it, regardless of how powerful the evidence is. Wiki "the backfire effect" and see what I mean. Have a read of articles about "Belief persistence" and you will see that both of us are wasting our time. There is really no way for us to overcome our own biases and genuinely take that evidence into account... we are both subject to it. Will you repent if you are presented with proof of Jesus? Unlikely. Will I deconvert if presented with proof of no-God? Unlikely. 
     
    When we receive new information, our brains are wired in such a way that if the new information doesn't fit with the existing, that the new information will be rejected rather than the existing information being corrected. This is great news for me, because conversion stories represent real changes to existing beliefs, contrary to what I expect from Science.
     
    The bible tells me that none will come unless He draws them. I believe it. And I think sciecne is starting to catch up with those ideas as well.

  7. ~candice~ added a post in a topic Why are "non believers" restricted on this forum?   

    I don't quite understand your question.
     
    Free will must necessitate liberty. That is, it isn't really free will if God controls us and forces us to adhere to His word or use the bible as a life guide. So of course Satan has power. It is part of what is required for free will.
     
    Does that go any way towards answering your question?

    We aren't talking about weak Christians who would stumble and walk away when the doors are shut. We are talking solid believers who out and out are just rude and think the world will wait for them. It is disrespectful.

    A lot of churches do it down here, and for good reason. People are so lazy, they will regularly rock up late to the service. It's a bit of a "meh, who cares" attitude. It stinks.

    That's true, many Christians listen to scientists on philosophical matters that scientists are not experts on.

    Nin, plenty of TE'ers and PC'ers believe in a literal Adam.
     
    I agree that defining evolution as "materialistic atheistic origins science" infers ... atheism. So I have to agree with alpha on his initial point.
     
    I am also loathe to remind everyone again that scientists often take liberties they don't have in defining evolution as a godless origins theory. Scientists have no authority in that domain.

    He died, and He rose again.
     
    Is this mountain worth dying on?
