Arguments For Evolution
  
Jesus believed in the reality of the Flood, Ark and Noah (Luke 17:26-27). So why are professing Christians doubting him.

The language of Genesis 7-9 makes it clear that it's a global flood not local. ALL (Hebrew kol) the high mountains under ALL the heavens were covered. While occasionally a SINGLE kol is not universal, such a DOUBLE kol leaves no doubt (Leupold's commentary on Genesis).

MikeM, clearly Warwick was talking about JUNK DNA no longer being used credibly. Of course DNA is used. Context, man!

Recent discoveries show that the so-called junk has vital functions. About 93% of the genome is transcribed, even though a lot of it doesn't code for protein.

alan_of_UK, mosquitos could have fed on plant sap as some even do today. Some spiders catch pollen on their webs for food. The oilbird if officially a bird of prey but is 100% vegetarian. But with the Fall and God's curse on the ground, plants no longer provided enough nutrients for many animals, and features adapted for eating plants.

There are other issues such as God foreknowing the Fall. Search the creationontheweb site.


Evolution And Creationism Opposite
  
Lorra, the days of Gen. 1 were the same as the days of our working week, as shown by Ex. 20:8-11. And when the Hebrew yom (day) has a numeric or evening or morning, it is a normal length day.

By 24-hour I obviously meant the normal length, I'm perfectly well aware that it's an approximation.

The days obviously refer to Earth days, since that is the focus of God's creative activity.

Lorra, you clearly understand neither the Bible nor evolution. The Bible teaches that God created the world in 6 normal-length days about 6000 years ago, that death and suffering are the result of Adam's sin, and that God judged the world by a global flood. And this is in a passage that has the verb structure of Hebrew narrative, and is understood that way by the other biblical writers.

Evolution uses millions of years of death of the unfit to "create" things.

StevenG, do you have something of substance to say? That is, something that is backed up by Scripture and not your own judgemental theowaffle?


Is Homeschooling Better
  
It's encouraging to see people like Jim defending homeschooling.

Some of the public school defenders don't seem to realize that the government schools are much worse since they went to school. Decent teachers have even been verboten to point out clear errors in biology textbooks, e.g. Haeckel's fraudulent embryo diagrams used to indoctrinate kids into goo-to-you evolution.

MikeMocker: inerrant may have been "coined", but it is appropriate to describe scriptures that affirm no errors. Jesus said "Scripture cannot be broken" (John 10:35), and Paul called it "God breathed" (1 Tim. 2:16).

So what if other books are quoted. And if it has been changed, then prove it by producing the hypothetical unchanged versions!

An old Russian joke from the Soviet era:

- What happens if you introduce communism into the Sahara?
- For he first 50 years - nothing. Then you'll have a shortage of sand.

Trish, if you are really concerned with saving school money rather than coddling teachers unions, you should love vouchers. The government schools cost over $10,000 per child (at least $200,000 per classroom!). So if the government gave parents a $5000 voucher per child, it would SAVE $5000.

Alan_UK, George Reisman pointed out (Capitalism: A Treatise on Economics, p. 331, 1998):

"The difference between freedom and slavery is as sharp as day and night, even when a worker must work to avoid the pain of hunger. For even in this case it is not the capitalist employer who causes the workers hunger. On the contrary, he provides the means of satisfying the workers hunger."

See also Andrew Kulikovsky's excellent paper Biblical Economics (online).


Evolution And Creationism Opposite
  
Animals and humans were both created vegetarian, as Gen. 1:29-30 says:

Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.

And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground--everything that has the breath of life in it--I give every green plant for food." And it was so.

Steveng: "Paying more of your attention on the creation instead of the creator."

That means believing what He has revealed, surely! Long age beliefs are the result of allowing man-made dating techniques to trump His revelation.

"I believe we should spend more time DOING the two commandments spoken by Jesus in the NT and God in the OT."

Right, loving God with our minds means believing what He has revealed about the origin of the universe, order of creative acts.

Jack: "And several places in the Bible make it clear that God does not count time as we do."

Obviously, because God is outside time. But He inspired the Bible to teach us (2 Tim. 3:15-16), so the time measures He revealed must be man's days, unless otherwise stated.

But in Ex. 20:8-11, where the days of Creation Week plus 7th day of rest are the model for the working week of 6 work days plus 1 rest day. So the days of Creation Week must also be normal-length days.


When Was The Ice Age
  
Jack: "I agreee, God created the heavens and the earth, and I will not go beyond that."

So what gives you the right to stop at Genesis 1:1, and ignore Genesis 1:2 ff. right up to Ch. 11? All this is inspired Scripture.

IOW, why believe Gen. 1:1 that God created the heavens and earth, but not believe the rest where He explains the order of events, origin of man, sin and death, and the judgements of the Flood and Babel?


Pro-Choice And Still A Christian
  
The early feminists had no trouble denouncing abortion as "child murder". And decent doctors had no compunction about calling abortionists "murderers". So the abortionists should be convicted of murder if abortion becomes illegal again.

Alan_UK, the whole point of capitalism is that a free buyer can make a voluntary exchange with a free seller. The government's role is to restrain fraud and coercion, and protect private property rights.

Capitalism should not be confused with "crony capitalism", where certain businesses gain favour from the government. Genuine free marketeers from Adam Smith have had nothing good to say about big business.
