God’s plan for her could be to completely heal her, showing a world that has completely turned away from him how merciful and powerful he is. Something she will be completely disregarding when she takes her own life.

Zap, if Islamic groups wanted to DONATE the koran I am sure they would be completely fine with placing one in the drawer along side of the Bible. The Gideons provide Bible donations to hotels, there are absolutely zero tax dollars spent on the purchase or promotion of the Bibles left in the rooms. They are gifts to anyone who would like to pick it up and read on their own free will. The atheists already have their book in the room, its called AIR because they don’t believe in anything.

I somewhat disagree with you. This is cool, but they are not telling the whole story here. If you notice each object has reflective markers on them. There are also optical motion camera set up through the whole room. The software to track the object is quite simple, understanding the velocity, accelerations and distances are all easy calculations for the software to make. My question: Is this thing catching object without the reflectors, or is it using the optical motion data to understand where it will be in space based off of its initial velocity and acceleration, and moving the hand to catch it? Its a lot less practical if you would have to have optical motion cameras set up in your house while wearing reflectors in order for it to catch you..

Seeds could have been collected and stored on the ARC. Also, last time I checked, when it rains, the water isn’t salt water. Yes the oceans are salt water, but the pure volume of water from a worldwide rain storm with fresh water would dilute it quite a bit.
God created the heavens and the earth, man, woman and all the animals. Don’t you think that getting carnivores and herbivores to survive together for 40 days and 40 nights is a bit trivial for him, something he could very easily make happen? Do you not think that he could allow all plants to re-grow after the flood? I mean Jesus fed 5000 with a couple fish and some loves of bread. Stop looking at it within the realm and rules of earthly science, when it is controlled by someone not of this earth. Faith is the key my friend.

I agree FED. What he can do is amazing, there is no taking away from that, he is a great athlete. But that doesn’t mean that just anyone can do it. Cross Fit is dangerous, not as much to the serious athletes that have had experienced coaching in the past, but to the weekend warrior that starts this up because of the press it gets. There are some dangerous lifts in the workouts and if you do not have the base strength built up, you risk serious injury. I’ve seen videos of some horrendous form being utilized in some of these workouts, they are just asking for someone to get hurt bad. This guy is an amazing athlete though, and I have no problem with him doing the workout, because that is who it is tailored to.

Christians do not go around murdering people, the Bible teaches love not violence. There are significant differences in what is taught in Christianity vs. Islam and I think that is the main problem. Anyone killing in the name of Christ is not a Christian as it is directly the opposite of what Christ taught us. Anyone can claim to be anything they want..doesn’t make it true.
BTW McVeigh was agnostic..

I will give you one example, you can decide how you would have choosen to view it. After graduating college from one of the top engineering schools in the nation, I like most now a days was found looking for a job. I interviewed with a couple of companies (June time frame) but had no luck, not even a second interview.
I met with an Army recruiter and started the process to join, become an officer (because of my degree) and get some help with the student loan debt. While I think I would have done well in the Army, it didn’t sit right with me so I began praying. I asked God to guide me, if the Army wasn’t his path, then provide me with one. Needless to say nothing happened all summer, I continued to pray and ended up setting a date to take my physical and sign the paperwork.
I went to Arizona to visit family knowing I probably wouldn’t see them in a while. I remember sitting there packing my clothes to come home as I was scheduled to drive down to take my physical and sign the next day. I got a phone call with a random number from my home town, it was a company offering me a job over the phone. I interviewed with them once 4-5 months prior, but hadn’t heard from them since.
I believed God answered my prayers, providing me an opportunity literally the day before I was to sign up. One could choose to believe it was all chance, or one could have faith that God had a plan, and he answered my prayers.

I am sorry to hear about your story but thank you for sharing it. I believe there are blessings from God, and then there is random chance.The saying the sun shines on a dogs butt every once in a while comes to mind. The fact that the person was “blessed” doesn’t mean that blessing was from God, simply random chance, being in the right place at the right time. God doesn’t give out true “blessings” to someone who mocks or doesn’t believe in him.
I understand you may have been disappointed, or felt that justice wasn’t done correctly, but the question I ask is was it really Gods plan or was it what you wanted? See as a Christian I believe that everything that happens to me, happens for a specific purpose. I have had too many experiences in my 32 years of existing which point to a higher being to not believe, and an equal amount of them were not positive experiences, or what I wanted to happen. My faith is based off the fact that Jesus died for my sins so I can be forgiven. He has a specific plan for me, he put me on this earth for a reason, and everything that happens in my life, good or bad, is to direct me towards that purpose.
I believe God has a purpose for us, and yes it is up to us to decide to take that path, or one of our own. We do control how we get there, but that doesn’t change the fact that we were put on earth for a very specific purpose. If we follow Christ, he will bless our journey. Faith is knowing God is in charge and believing his w

To me, open carry is a deterrent, potentially preventing a crime before it happens. It’s like strike first mentality without actually striking first. Concealed carry is only valuable as a response, so as a crime is being committed I have the opportunity to stop it. Problem is (and I am guilty as I Concealed Carry) that you cannot prevent a crime being concealed, you can you can react to it but not prevent it. However, if more people carried, then we as a country could start to prevent crimes with concealed or open carry. If criminals knew that there could be 5-6 people carrying, whether they see it or not, then a lot of crime would be stopped before it happens. Problem is there are not enough people carrying to put that fear into criminals minds.

This is total BS. The fact of the matter is you cant DRIVE UP TO THE MCDONALDS DRIVE THRU WINDOW AND BUY THE DAMN TOY FOR $2.00. MAKE YOUR KIDS A MEAL AND BUY THEM A TOY IF YOU CANT SAY NO (Which in itself is completely wrong…)

This man may have just saved his daughters life. Why would the kid be breaking into his house after making several “unwanted” comments? Rape? Murder? Was he upset that he got turned down and was coming to make her pay?
If the man doesnt shoot the kid, what happens the next day when the Kid sees the girl walking down the street? If the kid was willing to take the chance to break into the house, he obviously wasnt trying to steal anything, and he would probably continue on his original plan. The old man unfortunately didnt know of these unwanted comments or aggressions, which probably saved the kids life.

Here is the problem with this:
1. They are violating our 4th amendment rights. The government is illegial searching us, not the Airlines, they dont want TSA agents any more than we do, they know it hurts their business.
2. TSA is a government run agency, so they may be able to do this in OUR country, flights coming into the US do not have this security. This is basically saying that the American people are the “terrorists” and everyone needs checked, but those that do want to hurt us, from other countries, get through with much less security.
Instead of the TSA agents, hire people specifically trained to profile. They look at your face, your eyes, your body stature, your apperance. They look for specific things that you are doing, figiting, stressing, shifting your body, nervousness, and they pick out those people to go through increased security checks. There is a science behind it, trained professionals, not every person getting their rights stepped on.

What amazes me is you call it Christian to be compassionate by violating one of the most important commandments. The ends do not justify the means. It is wrong to murder period and is well documented in the Bible.
Secondly, being a Cristian is all about Faith. Faith in God, in God’s miracles. God knows the number of every hair on your head, when you will be born and when you will die. He has a plan for each and every one of us and to prematurely end that right, that plan, is not Christian. I have seen first hand the blessings and miracles God delivers, including healing of the “sick and dying”. Who are we to even presume to defy what miracles God may have in store for the person.
