Is Christmas Pagan
  
Well personally I celebrate Christ's birth at Christmas time , despite the fact he was probably born some time in September or October . I do remind people in my life that I celebrate the most important event to happen for mankind , and I also remind people that I personally will not be over-indulging in food , drink or presents , I will however be going to Church on Christmas eve . This way I make sure people around me know my opinion about Christmas . How they see and do Christmas will be judged by God in the future .


Ear Piercing Bible Scriptures
  
"Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets." (Amos 3:7)
To say that God no longer speaks to prophets is to say that he no longer does anything--that he no longer concerns himself with the welfare of his children.
Times do change. Fashions and fads come and go. In order to know what God is doing today, what God wants US to do today, we must understand not only that which he revealed unto his ancient prophets, but also that which he reveals unto his prophets today.


Acne Scars Causing Depression
  
I pray for you. But, unfortunately, for me laser did not work well. I am trying the fractional lasers at the moment with little to no results after my first. If the scars are pitted, there really is nothing that can be done. If they are just pigmentation issues, which often are confused for true scars, then they will eventually fade.


Ask God To Die
  
It is easy to say "I want to die". But why not have your brother ask God how He can use him to minister to others instead of seeking death? His testimony about how he trusting God will make a greater positive impact than asking God to end his life.


Do Clergy Have Authority
  
Hi my name is Nick and I'm a Child of God Through Jesus Christ!I wanted to reply because of what i read while scimming through the Blogs! And something that caught my Spirits attention was the post that speaks on authority and Clergy.(nor is the bible an authority...it is a helpful "reference" to know the "doctrine of Christ", 2 John verse 9).)That Statement is False.John 1:1 In the Beginning was the Word,and the Word was with God and the Word was God! Jesus Christ is the Word! the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us...John 1:14! And the Bible is Authority! its not just a tool or a reference or a basic instructions before leaving earth! No its a Form of God himself and has Great Power It is Truth and Life!


How Long To Build The Ark
  
God gave the human race 120 and twenty years more time to: 1: Repent,
2: Give Noah enough time to build an finish the and indeed bring the animals along for the ride, becaused thses animals were directed and lead by God to the ark, from the ends of the Noah, while Noah was busy. So the 120 years is to be counted from the time God gave the warning to men to the time the perished in the flood, which by the way took just over one year to recede from the earth. Simple answer therefore, Noah built the ark in less than 120 and twenty years.

Your Brother in Christ.

Angels Taking Women For Wifes
  
Interesting. I have a quick question. If you read carefully, wasn't Noah's wife a descended of Cain? So if we say that the sons of God were the family line of Seth, then wouldn't have Noah sinned against God, however, it says that Noah was a rightous man. I always found that odd. Maybe there is something to this whole angels having children. I'm sure that was not allowed and made God angry. They were suppose to be our watchers, not our lovers. One other little fact, in the book of Job, angels are called sons of God. This time era came right after the flood. So, couldn't you say that "sons of God" was a term used for angels during that time period? Maybe some one could enlighten


What If Big Bang Is True
  
Warwick, The scientific method has produced theories which have led to many benefits we enjoy. No one beats up on scientists who provide us with so many good things. It seems only if science and Bible orthodoxy disagree that suddenly their scholarship is challenged. Scientific method involves preparation, publication and peer-review. You say fossil record supports a young earth. If it does then science would adopt this as true. Sientists who are Christian are solidly behind old earth. You might want to read Dr Michael Behe (The Edge of Evolution).


What If Big Bang Is True
  
Warwick, I should have added a tagline to my previous posting that would say I would be happy to have someone convince all of the scientific world that the world was created 10,000 years ago. I just don't think it will happen. I have read both sides of the argument. I reviewed some material last night. There is a world full of sedimentary rock bearing fossils laid out in order with the oldest and most primitive on the bottom and newest and most complex on top. There are even sharp lines that delineate times of mass extinctions. Species are in the lower but not in the higher rock as well as new species in the higher rock and not in the lower indicating appearance of new species.


What If Big Bang Is True
  
The Creation model does not allow for extinctions. Dinosaurs, sabertooth tigers, mammoths, mastodons, trilobites and all manner of creature found in the fossil record would have carried thru the flood in the Ark and repopulated Earth. Archeology and other sciences have dated human habitation on Earth far in excess of the 4-8,000 BC postulated to be the formation of Earth according to Creation Theory. Jericho is listed as the oldest city and dates back 10,000 years. Scientific dating may be somewhat flawed but I cannot accept that errors of 4 billion years have been made.


When Did Dinosaurs Die Out
  
What would be a date for the universal flood? Surely it would have been within the past 6,000 years or within the age of written history. If so why is there no record of dinosaurs except in the fossil record and that indicating they existed for 10s of millions of years finally dying out about 65 million years ago. If dinosaurs existed post flood what would have caused their extinction? They were a hardy bunch and would not have died out under normal conditions which have been favorable for the past 10,000 years since the last ice age.


Genesis About Milky Way
  
The anthropic principle is a set of universal parameters which had they been even slightly different than they are would have resulted in no life on Earth or even no Universe. It seems that the Universe was created in order that intelligent life would come into being.


Genesis About Milky Way
  
Some twenty or so years ago Carl Sagan went to Puerto Rica to the huge Arecieba radio receiver. He was intent on hearing electromagnetic transmissions from extraterrestal intellegience. He fully expected to find proof of e/i by lunch time. He was disappointed. No evidence has been found since then thru SETI searches.
I have read some good books (Rare Earth for one) which have posited the theory that because of the extreme difficulty of intellegent life arising thru natural means that it is likely we (Earthlings) are the only intellegient life in the Universe. Of course, this supports Genesis.


What If Big Bang Is True
  

Nick3 a geologist friend agrees with my comments & added:

Warwick, I cannot speak to every anomaly, which might show up. After all we have a large world where unusual things do occur.

Perhaps your geologist friend would like to be the one to put together a coherent presentation at an important scientific conference or publish in a major scientific journal showing that this information should offset the generally accepted data showing Earth to be 4.5 Billion years old. He would become famous if he were to succeed.


What If Big Bang Is True
  
Nick I believe most of the fossil record resulted from the world-wide flood of Noah. The creatures therein are of a later period than when Adam existed.
---Warwick on 2/4/09 Thanks, Warwick, and thanks for the clarification re:cesium. I would like to propose a set of if- then statements. If all creatures were present with Adam and Eve then they would have died in the coming flood. If they all died together then they would all have washed into common gravesites. If they washed into common gravesites then the fossil record would show a homogenization with all creatures intermingled in death. If the fossil record shows intermingled creatures then the case for a young Earth would be supported.


What If Big Bang Is True
  
If, however, the fossil record shows a clear delineation between creatures with the simplest and most primitive at the bottom and larger and more complex at the top then this would support an old age of formation of Earth. If none of these creatures were extinct at the flood then they would have been present as breeding pairs in the Ark and therefore would still be alive today.

Conclusion: the fossil record supports an ancient age of Earth.


What If Big Bang Is True
  
Scientist earn their salary and professorships by being agreeable. They earn their accolades, promotions and research grants by being disagreeable. That is to say that by their new researched data or reinterpretation of old data they upset the status quo thereby causing a paradigm shift throughout the scientific world. Galileo did that (unfortunately the church prevented him being able to enjoy the fruits of his genius) so did Newton and Dr Hubble with his observations of the red shift of starlight which led to the theory of Big Bang. A scientist is motivated to overturn the current majority view that Earth is 4.5 Billion years old.


What If Big Bang Is True
  
If he or she could use the argument of leached lead or incorrectly interpreted fossil record or any other controversial data package to prove Earth being 10,000 years old they would win the Galileo/Newton/Hubble Prize for Physics. In fact they would be Scientist of the Century.

Question for any YEC advocate:Did all creatures present in the fossil record coexist simultaneously with Adam and Eve?


What If Big Bang Is True
  
The second law of thermodynamics is an expression of the universal law of increasing entropy, stating that the entropy of an isolated system which is not in equilibrium will tend to increase over time, approaching a maximum value at equilibrium.
---lee1538 on 2/2/09 The second law argument does not apply to this situation since it relates to a closed system. Earth is an open system with energy being constantly added by the heat from the Sun.
