Gen. 6: The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled. So the Lord said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them.”
I think yes.
In a previous thread, I had sketched the evolution of our human ancestors till Homo erectus, the first species of our genus to colonize Asia and Europe. I hope to continue the scientific narrative for modern humans.
The Science of Human Evolution
The modern humans slowly evolve from descendents of H. ergaster is East Africa from 200,000 years ago onwards.
Evolution of Modern Humans: Early Modern Homo sapiens
By 120,000 years they extend their range to South Africa and by 100,000 years...
We all have our subjective reality.
Above all that, we have an objective reality.
subjective reality can be a belief in prayers.
it can be a belief in angels and other non-scientific concepts.
Along the years, humans objective reality became more understood and some subjective realities have been forsaken.
To me it seems, that the more one learns about the objective reality, the better he understand what is objective and what is subjective, and i assume that is why the majority of...
Jesus is getting defamed daily. They paint pictures of him either holding a cross or wearing it around his neck, and then, they sell those paintings on the markets. During his lifetime, Jesus himself didn't call himself God and didn't consider himself God, and none of his disciples had any inkling at all that he was God. By producing pictures of him holding a cross and claiming that he was God is a defamation of his character. This reminds me of situation where you have a pack of wolfs...
The word supernatural was coined by Charles Tart, a psychologist and parapsychologist, who did research on the nature of consciousness (mind-altering drugs), psychokinesis and ESP. The word natural isn't in the Bible either. I could not find who coined it, but "nature vs. nurture" was coined by Frances Galton (notorious for eugenics which led to the Holocaust and black genocide), Darwin's cousin. The word scientist was coined by theologian, William Whewell.
The Scripture does not use the...
Sense so many Christians are obsessed with proving Atheists are wrong and are combative about proving Jesus is God and creational science as truth to Atheists. Why are you so combative and obsessed with ATheists and the Evolution?
The Evolution debate goes on forever, of course, and I strongly doubt that either side will ever stand down. Each side for their own reasons, of course (for better or worse)!
But for this one thread, let's just assume that Evolution is not true, that Darwin was wrong, that species cannot give rise to other species, that non-life cannot give rise to life (abiogenesis, which is of course not part of Darwin's theory, but let's allow it in for this one thread).
There are, as one might expect,...
I've been trying to ignore this again, but it needs to be addressed. I tried looking into going back to Islam, but I'm troubled. There are no sects that will accept being gay or transgender and that's a big problem for me. I don't believe that God created LGBT people just for us to judge or hate them.
There is this group called Muslims for Progressive Values and I can get behind their stances, but they are a minority unlike more liberal Christians and Jews who actually have big accepting...
