How can I accept a truth that has no objective basis.
God and the Bible is a circular argument.
1.Ã‚Â God is true; the Bible says so.
2.Ã‚Â The Bible is true; God said so.
:.Ã‚Â Therefore, God and the Bible are true; the Bible and God say so.
1) Evolution is true because it has mountains of evidence.
2) Evolution is as provable as electricity or gravity.
3) There are no missing links, all have been found. So therefore evolution is now an implied absolute true fact, and no one better disagree with that. Why? Because "I" say so. And the mass majority agree.
Not much difference from what I see.
The conclusion is self-referential and tautological.Ã‚Â It's the same as saying, "It is true, because it is true."Ã‚Â How is do you qualify the truth of that claim, and how does it lead to common sense?
At least we can admit to faith, and don't have to change faith into a scientific explanation.
And why should any of this be taken as a true statement about what God thinks?
1) It's in His inspired word.
2) Why do you worry if you truly believe He does not exist?
So, you think I am evil?Ã‚Â You think I have a reprobate mind; you thinkn I am one who refuses to accept.Ã‚Â And you think I choose not to accept, because the Bible told you that is what I am doing?
The difference between sin and evil is:
1) Sin is where you sin against yourself, with no agenda against God.
2) Evil is where you use sin to work against God, therefore your sin has an agenda.
Now have you ever done anything that can be considered working against God? Being here to convince Christians of evolution, to try and convert them is what? Good? In who's eyes?
So it's by your own actions that evil is done, not by my opinions.
Did you ever think to ask me?Ã‚Â And where is the common sense in taking a piece of writing, written by someone else, divine or mortal, as an absolute truth?
I realize that science claims there are no absolutes. Which makes it hard for you to understand something absolutely. But what do you think.... Does absolutes exist or not? If not then you answer your own question as to the reason my answer will never be accepted.
I don't reject the Bible because its true and can't handle its truth.Ã‚Â To suggest I do is another way of degrading me by suggesting I have a weak mind.Ã‚Â Frankly, it's as prejudicial as what Comfort's says.Ã‚Â And as bad as when atheists claim religious people are weak minded.Ã‚Â IMO anyone (atheist or Christian) who degrades the mental capacity of another person for not believing what they think is true, is a bigot.
Does truth border on absolutes? And what is the general opinion of evolution among evolutionists? Evolution is a true proven fact with mountains of evidence. So even though absolutes are not suppose to exist, it's still okay to imply one?
And the other part of not wanting Christians to down grade you. I have no problem with this request as soon as you guys quit it as well. Deal?
