  1. Through God's creation of everything, from the quantum to the macro sized universe, he allowed for this universe to have life. It started with a complex set of chemicals and a process called Abiogenesis which is the creation of inanimate matter into life. Later, these single cell life that slowly developed over time developed the ability for biogenesis which is when life creates itself. That single cell organism had a very specific environment that it lived in. It's basic needs were to feed and multiply. To survive, life sometimes takes genetic mutations to allow greater probability of surviva
  2. Sharing our salvation testimony will not help us gain true understanding of our Lord. The only purpose it would serve is to aid in the defilement and descrimination. In other words, our spiritual journeys are our own and between ourselves and God. We should keep our pride in check and never put ourselves over another person. God Bless! Ephesians 4:13 'until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.'
  3. Pastorj, absolutely not my intent to offend your group, but rather to understand your thoughts on these topics. We are all brothers in the belief in Christ. I do wish you all the blessings to you and your family in this holy season. In the end of all this discussion, it will most certainly all be sorted out when we are in the presence of our Lord. Take care, my brothers!
  4. First of all, most people would consider such fundamental theories of Evolution to be sufficiently tested by empirical evidence to conclude that they are indeed facts. The IFB doctrine of belief in the Bible as the ultimate source of all information is flawed. The Bible does serve as a humanistic, moral guide, not a scientific guide. As a result of the massive amount of evidence for biological evolution accumulated over the last two centuries, we can definitely conclude that evolution has occurred and continues to occur. All life forms, including humans, evolved from earlier species, and all
  5. Thank you for the explanation of IFB. Never heard of your organization until today. I have looked online and apparently it's hardcore KJV only. Do you really believe all black people bear the mark of Cain and are cursed? Do you think our Lord Jesus would say this is how we treat one another? The answer is NO! His message is love not hate. Oh and to give up Movies, Dancing or music with "addictive" rock beat must be a crowd pleaser. Well, God bless you my friend. To each, there own!
  6. Also, what is an Independant Fundamental Baptist? Are you a church of 1? I never heard of that.
  7. Not sure what question you are asking. You mention 'Chain of Custody' which is if I am not incorrect about the handling of evidence. I believe I did provide a great link to the Smithsonian where they show you the skeletal remains of our ancestors. It's quite fascinating in the fact that there were so many subspecies of early humans. We of course are the one surviving line which brought us to what we are today, allowing us to have this conversation. Interesting also in how the skull brain cavity increased in size from subspecies to where we could manipulate objects, rationalize and so forth wit
  8. Let's try a different approach here. Where is the proof that we did not evolve from apes and before that from simpler creatures? Don't cite a passage or parable. What is your evidence in your counter argument. We already have the archeological and genetic evidence out there for public consumption. What is the basis for your anger/ dispute against Evolution. How is this threatening to your belief structure?
  9. DaveW, it would at some point be nice to share that.
  10. Thank you for your response. If I may ask a serious question with the utmost respect to those reading...how do we know...really know that all books/ writers of what makes up the Bible are educated, men of God? How do we know that each writer represents God? Is this a matter of faith on your part? Book of Genesis really from an allegorical sense is beautiful, however from a practical view, not so much.
  11. DaveW, There are actually special preparations that would ensure accuracy of Carbon Dating of objects greater than 50,000 years. My 67% confidence level is from memory. So as to the Zero level of confidence you quoted, you are incorrect. I would suggest you do as you had suggested and read one of the various publications on the subject. The reliability of the results can be improved by lengthening the testing time. For example, if counting beta decays for 250 minutes is enough to give an error of 80 years or more with 68% confidence. As far as the reference to Mount St Helens/ Grand
  12. Isn't it interesting how ppl are so averse to discussing certain topics such as Evolution without being rude and dismissive of the plain facts. It's the same ignorance that Nazi sympathizers held on to, stating the Holocaust never occurred or the same prejudice of those in Salem in the 1600's who thought the lady who acted just a bit peculiar, needed to be burned. God gave us the ability through millions of years of existence, to rationalize and understand God's creation. Does the notion of evolution understate the beauty of God's creation? Anyway, I think Bill Nye destroyed Hamm's argument.
  13. Omega, good points on your post with possibilty of biblical time being measured differently. As far as Transitional fossils, visit the Smithsonian Human Fossil collection. This is the best place to understand that to be evolved from animals is not unGodly, but beautiful. We as Humans have so much history. http://humanorigins.si.edu/evidence/human-fossils/ Here is an interesting evolutionary fact on why we get Goosebumps....The body hair of all mammals automatically stands up when cold, creating a fluffy layer of warmth. When we’re cold, the muscles around the hair follicles contract
  14. Dear friends in Christ I think science and religion do not have to oppose each other here. Clearly we cannot have 100% reliability in the science of Carbon Dating(67% confidence level) in anything less than 50,000 years, however we can be of reasonable, educated minds to understand how God in his infinite ability can create such a beautiful universe, more specifically our planet in the normal process of plate tectonics through subduction zones, natural sedimentation and other processes. For our planet to evolve to its current state, it takes millions, not 6 thousand years to develop. Take
