Hagop, You say that we’ve “given up on God’s sovereignty and are trying instead to please the world,” I say, “accept the world for what it is and try to see how God’s sovereignty made it.” That’s exactly what science is as you mentioned. Observing how the world and figuring out how it works. Since God made the world what we’re literally observing is the rules he set in place for it. The simple fact that I can sit here at this computer and type a comment into it and broadcast that out to the planet is proof in itself that these observations are pretty accurate so I can’t immediately discount them.
Terminator, for one God didn’t breath life into animals, he breathed it into Humans. That’s what differentiates us from animals. For two, believing that God could create the universe instantaneously and believing that he chose to do it that way are two completely different things. One of those comes from the misinterpretation of Genesis through a series of translations and re-translations by fallible men working with fallible languages (which don’t always match up exactly as observed with what happened at the tower of Babel), and the other comes from observation of God’s creation. I’ll leave it to you to determine which one is which. I’m not trying to convince you to believe anything, just to stop with the vitriol when discussing while ignoring what’s right in front of you (I.E. some form of computer, maybe a light bulb or two, etc.).

How about if he didn’t just sit back and let it happen but rather patiently guided it throughout millions of years until Man’s body was ready to receive his spirit? If you understand the mechanisms that drive evolution you can easily see how that is possible unless you are simply looking for an excuse to disbelieve his influence. I’m afraid you lost me on point 2. I don’t see how a flood could ruin the process of evolution…
Since evolution appears to be your sticking point, go research chromosomal crossover. Specifically its effect on mutations (the drivers of evolution): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chromosomal_crossover
Do so and ask yourself the question, “What if these mutations don’t really happen at random?”
That might just be the kind of information that the cretins are too dense to understand? Even if it’s not true (It’s not described in the bible after all), I still think God would rather have a person ask honest questions rather than blindly submitting to what fallible men say is true. Rather than immediately accepting anything as fact, try to make it fit with what you already know to be true if it doesn’t already. If it fits it’s probably true.

Take a look at the picture where the two men are hugging it out and see if you notice anything concerning on the right hand side of the frame as the whole room is supposed to be in applause and weeping loudly. Look at that and tell me America is not yet dead. I agree that there are still a lot of good people around, but we are very far from where we should be.
If you can be staring at your damn phone when something like that is going on and be completely unmoved, there’s a problem.
Charcoal, Sulfur, and Potassium Nitrate. Go make your own powder. You’re completely missing the point of what I’m saying.

Sounds like it’s time to start loading ammo at home and gifting it to friends and family in exchange for something else. That way it’s not a sale and no license would be required. There’s always a way around it.
Rudimentary firearms were used 900 years ago. It’s not hard for someone with limited knowledge to replicate this well versed technology. Why can’t these cretins come to terms with the fact that no matter what legislation they throw at guns, lunatics will always be able to get their hands on them (even if they have to make their own) and cause tragedies?
"Loading at home" is a way of life for instructors "NRA Reloading Instructor" and shooting sports enthusiast however it has its own problems with Government.
The Union strikes on the West Coast Docks pretty effectively "stopped" reloading powders from getting into the Country from Australia thus causing a critical shortage of powders like "Unigue" Varget, IMR4064 and others popular in reloading as well as some types of Primers!. Sweden and Australia are the largest manufacturers of Primers and Powders.
Even here in Wyoming, citing public safety concerns, a Demoncratic State Representative tried to limit how many pounds of powder a citizen could possess! The lbs allowed would not let a typical shooter enough to load for typical match and was shot down by the legislature.
They often cite that "Reloading Powders are "Explosives" ... which they are not ... ATF and EPA also tries this tactic to regulate reloading .... Smokeless powders used for rifle, pistol and shotgun reloading are flammable - "Not Explosive" ... Black Powders FFg, FFFg, etc... are explosive but are limited to the Black Powder shooting Community which is small, though a black powder cannon can use a lot of it !
Bottom line is, when a free citizen finds away around communist rule, your elected official will find a new rule !
anyone with two brain cells can build a 'gun" from what is found in a typical kitchen and garage, maybe several. Along with propellent and projectile. Will it go bang? Yes. Will it be accurate? At ten feet.
Will it shoot more than once. Maybe. The point being, guns are so simple as to be stupid. A tube open at one end, a way to hang on to it, a load that can be put in it, a way to ignite that load, point it.
But it would get you close enough to take all the wind out of a person with a better gun. Look up the "Liberator Pistol" that was dropped on eurpoe during WW2.
Multiply that by thousands...

More proof that communist entities thrive on stealing the ideas of others maybe? The more I learn about Target, the more I dislike it.
If it is where moochelle goes for photo-ops, it kinda' says it all. Bad place to spend money.
"You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means."
It seems to me that Target is practicing capitalism. They are certainly not practicing communism.
They probably were imported from China.
Target is communist? How so?
"It seems to me that Target is practicing capitalism." There was a time where, like a lot of things, practicing capitalism included some degree of ethics and integrity. If the company had any they would have contacted here and offered a royalty for use of the design. Its kind of like when you remove sportsmanship and integrity from sports. You know like Tom Brady and the Patriots. At the end it is not tough competition, it is cheating... plain and simple.

Throwing a little ***** a beating and killing him are COMPLETELY (see how I can use all caps too :-) ) different things. This kid’s life was not in danger, and he was being taught the responsibility that comes along with the freedom of speech. Any freedom comes with the responsibility to not abuse it and you can’t have the freedom without the responsibility. This kid was simply being taught the responsibility part of it.
I completely agree that it should be the parent doing the punishing, so don’t get me wrong there, but you are drawing parallels between things that are not even close to the same.
I use caps for emphasis because bold isn't possible... sorry if you took it as yelling, I wasn't yelling at you.
So you would be ok with Pamela Geller getting a little beating? If her life wouldn't have been in danger, it is ok to "teach" the responsibility that comes with freedom of speech?
Would it be ok to "teach" a liberal calling President Bush horrific names? Would it be ok to "teach" a conservative a lesson for calling President Obama bad names?
Or even more so... Would if be ok for *you* to teach the kid a lesson if he called the teacher a "n"?
 May 8, 2015 at 9:59am
Nobody in the right here. The kid is obviously a disrespectful little *****. The teacher is obviously a hot headed jackass. Kids, especially 14-year-old ones, are notorious for testing bounds. He should have been taught a lesson, but not in this way. I’d much rather see parents have the freedom to beat the crap out of their kids at this age when they act like that without CPS taking their kids away and teachers deferring to the parents rather than taking matters into their own hands.
SO, lets look at this. a 14 year old punk assaults a teacher and you think he is within his rights as a punk.
How about this:
1. Not-See boys conscripted into service toward teh end of WWII, 9 years old carrying rifles and firing on Allied troops.
2. muslim kids brain washed from birth, 6-7 years old firing weapons on our troops.
3. Inner city youth, 12 years old killing innocents, dealing drugs, getting pregnant.
Wake up, this punk has the mindset of a gang banger at 14! It will only get worse with this punk, especially since his hog brood sow "mother" thinks he is infallible and he nor she has done no wrong in his upbringing.

Thanks Whiplash! Now everybody in my cube farm is wondering why I’m laughing hysterically.
April 30, 2015 at 10:05am
This is a real American. This man is now my hero. I only hope I can be as awesome some day.

So without information about what the kids did nobody can say whether the punishment was justified or not.
That’s not the point though. The point is whether the mother has the right to punish her children as she sees fit. Knowing how children at that age range act, I don’t think twice in siding with mama. Especially since they weren’t in any danger or risk of harm.
What’s scary to me is how many people on The Blaze comment section feel that having the police/cps micromanaging parents rather than how these kids must have “suffered” for a few hours in a basement. I was often locked in my room when I was young. My parents were often chained to things when they were young. A generation before that, children were routinely beaten when they misbehaved. The funny thing is that people from those generations generally had more respect for one another and good manners. That’s the generation that fought WWII. It’s interesting how our understanding of “acceptable parenting practices” are becoming less strict at around the same rate our society is falling into decay.

They are terrified of Senator Cruz running for president. I love it.
Now if we can just get the GOP out of the way.
 March 17, 2015 at 6:19pm
Wow! I made it 12 words in and this idiot was already discredited. No need to read the rest. Next.
He mischaracterized and slandered every object of his attacks.

Dear Jon Street, Please provide details on what a “parenting plan” is so the cretins here can decide for themselves if they’re happier upholding the law when they disagree with it or only when they agree with it (like immigration for example). As near as I can tell from a brief web search, a “parenting plan” is a legal term for an agreement between parents when they divorce.
That would mean that rather than some heavy handed jack booted thug from the government cutting deciding for them that this boy needs is foreskin removed, that both parents were aware and it was decided upon when they couldn’t be adults and do what was right for the kid in the first place.
Furthermore since we’re all on here throwing around wild accusations about the father being a dirt bag who wants this as a way to ruin his son’s life and that of his x: What if daddy is Jewish? What if daddy has just looked into possible reasons why you would want to circumcise and thought it would be a reasonable preemptive action to avoid potential infections resulting in forced circumcision at an older age when it will be much more invasive. In either case, Blaze commenters, please stop jumping to conclusions without sufficient information.
Never mind, go ahead and stick with the progressive stereotypes that fathers are irrelevant and have no concern for their children except maliciously. That’s probably the safe assumption to make here.

Proverbs, you’re once again showing that you belong in the douche hall of fame. Believe it or not drivers in cars don’t own the road either and most bikers only ride bikes because they enjoy it. That and they aren’t fat basement dwelling trolls who don’t do anything but hang out on The Blaze and hurl petty insults at anyone who has a slightly differing opinion from themselves. If you ever talked to people who do things outside you would probably already know that. I’m guessing when you don’t have the protection of your monitor and keyboard your conversation with them would be a lot more civil as well.
License bikes… Seriously why is it that so many “conservatives” will turn into statists whenever they think they can put a stick in the eye of someone they disagree with by doing so?
 February 26, 2015 at 9:38am
“Residents of a Dutch town who dare to venture out at night are arming themselves for protection against a rouge predator.”
HA HA HAHHAAAA HAAAAAAAA!!! That’s the best typo I’ve seen in an article on The Blaze yet! AND it makes the villagers sound like even bigger pansies.
Look out! It’s an owl wearing make-up! We better get an umbrella! HA HA HA!
Seriously though, proofreading is always a good idea.
But that would can government is working. Passing anything would ruin Boehner's record.
 February 2, 2015 at 5:14pm
How can you possibly say if it’s a safe/good idea or not given the information we have here. Maybe it says in the video how large the lot is, how he plans to arrest the bullets down range, etc. but that’s no longer available apparently. This could still go either way in my opinion. Is it on a 0.15 acre lot with the neighbor’s houses 10′ apart or a 1+ acre lot and the intended target area won’t result in firing toward someone else’ property? Is there a proper lead trap being built in? Details are every journalist’s best friend… They give credibility.

I was definitely playing the odds. I’d love to go read more, but unfortunately some people have to work in this country still.
