Thanks for the videos, Adam.Ã‚Â The Woodmorappe Method of Feasibility strikes again.Ã‚Â I think it's interesting that you can swallow the could-have-happened-like-this style of argument from people like this, while completely discounting speculations actually based on science from people like Carl Sagan.
You think Carl Sagan dreaming the impossible on supposed natural terms while no scientific method could verify, his or other theorists concepts of evolution, and numerous known principles work strongly against their ideas (to the point of absurdity), Carl Sagan's "good science" is beyond me, Sister.
Carl Sagan was a clever polite version of Richard Dawkins. He was a pantheist's pantheist. He just hid behind the cloak of agnosticism and his philosophy was just as fatally flawed.
As for the concept of believing the Bible verses some goofy theories of billions of years and a common decent from goo for which there is no evidence. How does a person continue to believe in evolution as the evidence mounts against it? The only estimation I have is strong faith.
However, scripture is history and the things in scripture that are easily verified prove it to be the most reliable rendition of what this world has experienced.
So while you have faith in unnatural concepts of nature and the dreams dreamed up in the bellies of boats like the beagle and reclined at office desks of others imagining evolution for all the world to believe. We instead believe in the reasonable conclusion that God's power is revealed and revealed again in His nature and His Word.
I trust the Word that has miraculously resisted manipulation, but known for transforming scrutinizing individuals, like myself and many others over the pipe dreams that refuse delivery of miracles, not because of a lack of evidence but a faulty philosophy meant to denude the recipient of ever finding the truth.
...as for Christmas posting? When the wife is taking a nap a post or two does not offend?
