We saw that in 'geode'. Remember him? He was the geologist from Sri Lanka who continually insisted that he was far more qualified than any of us as it concerned the 'evidence for evolution' even though we continually showed him he wasn't...with very solid documentation. The interesting thing is that I also encountered geode on imdb several years ago on a board that had virtually no rules. He was a wild man there who, along with his atheist/agnostic/theistic comrades continally insulted me and a handful of other creationists in the most vile manner. So years later, after seeing the way he behaved himself on this board where he could not freely express his rage, insults, and free wheeling attitude it was almost as if he had undergone a personality change. Birds of a feather flock together, but birds alone get their feathers plucked.
P.S. I wouldn't be surprised if it was the Lord that stopped you from going aboard Evc. It's a bad place for creationists.
Perhaps, it wouldn't have been the first time I've had some form of intervention
Here is one, and I think its God's sense of humour. This occured back when I was younger and a regular church attending Christian. At a youth camp I told my youth group supervisor that I think God helps me out sometimes because sometimes I get some really lucky breaks, even with minor arbitrary things. He said I was being silly and the group of us then proceeded to play the card game "cheat".
Cheat is played where the deck is split among all the players and one starts by putting down all their aces, the next person all their 2's the next threes, etc in a circle. If you don't have the card you need, you can place any card however if someone calls you out as "cheating" or "cheat" and you are cheating then you pick up the cards already placed, if you are not cheating then the accuser picks up the cards.
Now we played 2 games and I won both games, but the crazy thing was that I didn't need to cheat once.. I had every single correct card that I needed to put down... Halfway I realised this and counted ahead and was pissing myself laughing
It was funny since this was straight after my chat with my youth group leader.
Anyway, just a story to that God works in mysterious ways
Yes I do remember Geode however I tend to keep myself to the Biology side of things, since I admit I am a layman in Geology
