  1. http://ow.ly/YmuW302Ya91 The original, published in 1985, is to receive an update. From the article: "Simply put, there are not the innumerable transitional links Darwin predicted, and in many cases, there is not even conceivable links to account for various “structures†in nature. According to Denton, this is one of the major unsolved challenges for Darwinian evolution. Denton provides a number of examples in nature that lack Darwinian pathways, such as the cell, limbs, feathers, wings, flowering plants, language and more."

    An Explanation :)

    Yeah, I couldn't get on either a few days ago. I just thought there were server troubles again! Guess whoever this troll was didn't find me interesting enough to mess with!

    What Is The "scientific" Theory Of Evolution....?

    Goku, Since its taking me a goodly amount of time to respond, I have a bit of homework for you. Please read the following works, and it will teach you what I both believe and what it means in a way a simple post here could not. 1) http://biblecia.com/article.aid-34.html 2) http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001PSEQO2/ref=tmm_kin_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1454460370&sr=8-1 3) http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B008517ZBI/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1454460466&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX220_SY330_QL65&keywords=the+potters+freedom Actually Enoch, you may enjoy these as well. But for you I'd also recommend the following: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/s/ref=is_s_ss_i_2_11?k=the+king+james+only+controversy&sprefix=the+king+ja

    Sorry Cal, I'm only on a few minutes at most a day, so I'm limited in how fast I can reply. I will get to you brother!

    Absolutely correct Mike! This is what we as Christians refer to as adiaphora, Goku.

    What Is The "scientific" Theory Of Evolution....?

    This is a fundamental misunderstanding on your (and most atheists) part. God sends no one to hell. We send our selves there for our sins. You see, the scriptures teach that man is wicked, and honestly, when you look around at the things we're doing today, we can't really contradict this. That's sort of the problem with this subject, as ots so deep, its relatively difficult to unpack quickly or easily. Lets start with this. There's an analogy Arminians use that goes something like "We're all drowning men, and God throws us a life preserver. It's up to us to take it!" However a more apt analogy would be that not only are we drowning, but when God throws the life preserver, we spit in His face and dive. We actually love our sin, and hate God. It's only after God has removed our heart of stone and replaced it with a heart of flesh, that we can even turn to God. There are a good many scriptures that teach this, and I'll happily provide them if you like. As for being part of the elect, we don't know who is, or who isn't, or when the effect of their election may become evident, so we preach to all. As for those go to hell, God doesn't force them to be in His presence. So long story short, God doesn't send anyone to hell. Those who go to hell are being rightly punished for their sins. It's in God's sovereignty that He chooses His elect. As it says in Romans 9, "14What shall we say then? There is no injustice with God, is there? May it never be! 15For He says to Moses, “I WILL HAVE MERCY ON WHOM I HAVE MERCY, AND I WILL HAVE COMPASSION ON WHOM I HAVE COMPASSION.†16So then it does not depend on the man who wills or the man who runs, but on God who has mercy. 17For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, “FOR THIS VERY PURPOSE I RAISED YOU UP, TO DEMONSTRATE MY POWER IN YOU, AND THAT MY NAME MIGHT BE PROCLAIMED THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE EARTH.†18So then He has mercy on whom He desires, and He hardens whom He desires. 19You will say to me then, “Why does He still find fault? For who resists His will?†20On the contrary, who are you, O man, who answers back to God? The thing molded will not say to the molder, “Why did you make me like this,†will it? 21Or does not the potter have a right over the clay, to make from the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for common use? 22What if God, although willing to demonstrate His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction? 23And He did so to make known the riches of His glory upon vessels of mercy, which He prepared beforehand for glory, 24even us, whom He also called, not from among Jews only, but also from among Gentiles." You see we all deserve wrath eight now, without exclusion. It's in God's mercy and grace that we don't receive it. I like to use this analogy. Say I'm a computer programmer, and I make hundreds of programs. Now, each one has a set date on which they will cease to function, regardless of it's function. Is it wrong for ms to choose to "save" some of those programs while letting others cease? Of course not. I created them, they're mine to do with as I please. It's the same with God. Obviously my analogy is a little flat, and doesn't remotely scratch the surface of what's really going on, but it is just an analogy. Basically, God is under no obligation to save a single one of us. Yet He saves a remnant to show His mercy and grace, and allows others their due penalty to show His holiness and wrath. There's honestly mountains of more information I'd really need to go over to make it more clear, but I simply lack the time right now. I'll try to catch up with you and answer any questions you have as soon as I can. All I ask guys is that you don't dog pile me with objections and such. I'm only one guy after all! In fact, if at all possible, I'd like to limit my interactions to Goku and Enoch for now. I'll try to address what I can, as I can. Thanks for your understanding and patience!

    Wow, lots here from lots of people! I'll try to get to each person as I have time. Please be patient with me!
  9. What I love about nihilism is its basic illogic. It claims all morality is an abstract, while ignoring the fact that logic is as well!

    Well that's good to hear. Many KJV Onlyists I've talked to are adamant and vicious in claiming that those who do not use the KJV are hellbound and Satanic. I'd like to see your sources for this, as much could be said the same way for the Textus Receptus and Erasmus' errors in the book of Revelation. I'd be happy to link a few things on this if you'd like. It's not something you can share here? I use my phone for most of my internet access and the pm system is a little tough for me. Well on the most basic of terms, Arminians are synergists, in other words the believe that God cannot save anyone without their permission. They place man's sovereignty over God's in tho respect. Calvinsts believe that God must change the heart of man (Ezekiel 36:26) and only then will they seek God. Those whom He changes are His elect. (Eph 1:4-5,11 John 6:44 Romans 8&9 Acts 13:48 etc.) As Jesus said: Jesus answered them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin" John 8:34 and what slave can free himself? Sorry, preaching a bit here. You get the idea I'm sure. Anyway, if you've got questions I'm happy to help any way I can!
  11. Actually now atheists are denying everything. They simply refuse to take a stand or a position on anything. It's called the Dillahunty dodge!

    Ok, if you're cool with it. When you say you're KJV Only, do you believe that those who don't use it, and use say the NASB (as I do) aren't Christians? Would you go so far as to say that the KJV is re-inspired by God, as the original autographs were? Lol! That sounds like a contradiction in terms! Can you explain what you agree with in both systems? I'm Calvinist myself(formerly Arminian), so I'm interested in what you think about both. I'm also happy to answer any question you have as well! God bless!

    That's interesting. I won't derail your topic here, but would you be willing to discuss this with me in another thread if I can find a little time? Lol, it's not whether you're a Christian or not, but how you view your theology. Arminians have a specific view of salvation and I was just curious if you were familiar with it or not. Every KJVonlyist I've talked with has fallen into this category. It's not bad, just a view. Like I said, I won't derail your thread any more, but I'd be happy to talk to you about these things in another thread if you like! Shalom Enoch!

    What Is The "scientific" Theory Of Evolution....?

    Enoch my friend, a couple of small questions occurred to me while reading your post. They aren't directly related to the op, so I'll be brief. 1) Are you an advocate of KJV onlyism (and if so to what extent)? 2) Do you identify as an Arminian in your theology? I appreciate your time and look forward to your response. God bless!

    Move Over Pluto, A New #9 Is Here?

    http://time.com/4184942/planet-9-new-pluto-solar-system/ According to Time magazine (so take it with a lump of salt) astronomers have theoretically found a new, massive planet a long distance beyond Neptune, and having a 20,000+ year solar orbit. Strangely enough, they've yet to actually see this planet, and have started a crowd funding operation to find it. It's already being postulated that this planet accreted by itself outside of our solar system, as the hypothesized dust ring of our solar system would be far too thin at that distance to have created such a giant. While its interesting, it also smells of desperation to me. Base assertions stacked on a single piece of evidence. (the lining up of three dwarf planets.) They're already trying to discuss its origins, yet they don't even know of it exists yet! Ah well, such is the mindset of humanity...always placing the cart well ahead of the horse...
