And thank you for your carefully thought out response to my points!

But the point I’m making revolves around Fry’s response to the question he was asked. I understand the sinful world, free will side of things, I’m questioning the origins of such an abhorrent system, that this is all part of God’s plan. I understand that people may not agree with Fry’s view, or my view on the matter, but you cannot deny God’s hand in this sadistic system. There is nothing Satan can do that God won’t have knowledge of, but he still lets it happen.

So if for example a man commits a murder in 1915, it would be reasonable that his 5 year old great, great, great grandson should die a slow painful death from cancer. So who decided it would work this way? If not God, then clearly he is not what you claim him to be. You can’t just pick and choose, either he is the all seeing, all knowing, creator of everything or he isn’t.
People here seem very keen to absolve God of responsibility, by claiming that these things are the result of us abusing free will, but if you take an extra step back and look at it, you have to wonder who came up with this revolting system in the first place. To deny God’s hand in it is to deny his power and consequently his existence. So looking at it from a broader perspective, how can you fail to understand Fry’s position.
This world has sin at its roots. It is Satan's world, as example the evil that exists with des eases and deaths by accidents, disease, and murder. This life is short, eternity is with a HOLY GOD is forever. Man dies in this short life because this world has sin in it, until Christ comes back for his Church, and to save his people Israel. While you ate alive in this life , you have a choice to A) repent of you sins and ask Jesus Christ ( God in flesh, who died for our sins on the cross and rose again defeating satan and sin ) or 2) rejecting God's Salvation in Jesus, and be separated from God (hell) forever. John 3:16 in the Bible. God has given you free will. It does not matter if you believe this to be the truth, it will happen. Your choice, and I pray you choose God's plan for your eternal life with him. Look around, do you think all that is happening in the world today is not pure evil that is about to come to a great battle between GOD and Satan? It is about to come to a head , and Jesus is at the door and about to come for His church ( the saved) . I pray you will be with us. It will be virtually impossible for the Left Behind to make it through the awful times after the Holy Spirit is taken out of the world. Prophesies are about all fulfilled, before Christ's return. Please don't be left behind
Thanks for your asinine comparison and stupid brainless line of "reasoning".
Well said, but your logic will be lost on true believers.
Who ever said God was the only "being" in this universe with some form of "power"?
Scripture details the powers of the enemy as well. Don't think Satan doesn't have power. He has the power to kill, steal, and destroy. He has the power to possess, inflict disease, provoke war.
I'll keep it elementary for you. Everything good comes from God, and everything evil comes from the Devil. God is not the creator of evil, and He isn't the cause of death. Death entered the world through MAN'S sin, not through God's design. God is not responsible for mortality, man is.
You can't go any further philosophically in this discussion until you understand the philosophies of the Christian religion without distorting them, perverting them, or interpreting them in your own biased way in order to then turn around and use them as a weapon against believers. You don't even know what you're talking about, so first, understand what CHRISTIAN theology actually says before you go assuming you know!

Definition of reactivate: restore (something) to a state of activity.
Grown man behaves like a child, then plays the victim when he gets treated like a child. Where’s the story.
The world history text book they use covers Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism etc. as well as Islam, or would you disagree that religion has played a role in world history? Just because you don’t like something, doesn’t mean it’s a good idea to try and eradicate it from history.
This man would likely have a very narrow view of Islam if he served in Iraq, if that’s his only experience. His comments tell me all I need to know about him anyway. Being a former marine doesn’t stop you being a moronic ignoramus.
Gotta love the blaze. Can’t imagine why there’s such a disparity between the type of reaction you get here when some open carry proponent gets asked for ID and when a black professor get’s ID’d for avoiding a construction site.

This man has told many lies about his past and about his family before now, not interested in this pathetic whiny cr*p. he’s always playing the ‘you can’t question this’ card, whether true or not he’s cried wolf too many times.
But if Obama cried because he had rape in his family AND YOU MADE FUN OF HIM then you would hear the Libocrits ( hybrid of liberal and hypocrites) would call you a insensitive Racistsexisthomophobicmuslimphobe.
So why are you here? And how do you know he has been lying about his family? Proof please
what lies guz75...back up your B.S.
I pray that others show you mercy in your time of need. God Bless you.

I’m well aware of the science. All you’re doing is redefining god with no evidence, because something has the appearance of design, doesn’t mean it was designed.
Labeling the defining forces of the universe as god is just another form of apologetics, it allows god to be responsible for everything, even when science is saying otherwise. I suppose if I were to cite a snowflake as an example of something that has the appearance of design, but that we know isn’t designed, you’re going to tell me ‘ah, but god is the process that forms a snowflake’.
It’s an idea that is a product of it’s time, when god was a foregone conclusion and had to be incorporated in to science.
You can’t have a foot in the supernatural and the other in the natural. If god is the natural then it ceases to be supernatural.

How does people applying the term ‘sacred geometry’ to uniformity in nature, prove divinity? It’s a bit like people that describe everything around us as a creation and then say ‘so it must have had a creator’. it’s just circular reasoning.

It’s not all about what happens behind closed doors, it’s people like yourself that seem so obsessed with that side of it.
Also, if you choose to come to the blaze for your “”news”", you forfeit the right to use the ‘What you do behind closed doors is your business, stop trying to make it mine’ line. In case you hadn’t noticed the blaze quite intentionally pushes these stories under your nose, so you have something to froth at the mouth about. How many other news sites have such a high proportion of stories about homosexuals?? You’re effectively saying ‘don’t get in my face with this stuff’, while actively seeking it out!!??!!
Are you offended, guz? Because all I said was that while a certain community of people reaches for so much publicity, they tend to lose what they intended to garner... and that seems to be public support for a cause. Sorry, that message was lost to you as it seems that I've garnered at least two other individuals that seems to agree with me.
And no, I didn't notice that Blaze pushes this kind of thing *insert sarcasm.* That said, all I have to do is turn on the tv and watch an effeminate man selling the latest e-reader to an audience on a major network, I don't have actively seek out LGBT views... they are just out there in my face.
So, yes, I'm effectively saying 'don't get in my face with this stuff,' as I can't turn on my tv that's in my living room without seeing some kind of LGBT message of 'accept me because I'm different and I deserve respect because I've done nothing in my life that respects anyone else's view in the world..' I'm paraphrasing of course. Moving on... have fun.
'How many other news sites have such a high proportion of stories about homosexuals??'
The huffpo is looking for their idiots, take your filthy minions with you...
Someone beat me to it huffpo separates all the special people Latinos ,blacks and gays but no white people section that's pro white.but read the the other special sections ( finger wiggles) and these people are salt of the earth,but whites suck.You gays are TOLERATED not excepted, your like the annoying children acting up at the next table in a restaurant.stfu

Yeah and sometimes adults manipulate their children into embellishing a story, so they can make some money from a book!

Still no science. There is no scientific proof for design. Saying you think it looks designed isn’t science. A snowflake under a microscope appears designed, yet we know it isn’t.
You may well be right, but until science finds evidence that supports design, it cannot be taught in a science class.
October 17, 2013 at 11:40am
But I think you’re missing the fundamental problem with teaching creation in a science class; the lack of science.
I agree it is an alternative, it certainly can’t be disproved, but there are lots of possibilities that science can’t disprove. To be taught as an alternative in a science class it must have some sort of scientific grounding, at this point there is no scientific evidence for creation, therefore it has no place in a science class.
Not missing anything here.
You say a man takes a tree and makes a table.
I say God takes nothing and makes the tree.
Both are provable to a good heart and sound mind. Dig as deep into the word as you do with other disciplines, you may be surprised what you will uncover.

Where are you getting this nonsense (need I ask). If Darwin’s theory dealt with the origin of life, I guess he would of called it ‘The origin of life’. ‘The origin of species’ refers to Speciation, a process occurring once life has begun.
There is no conflict between evolution and creation, that is something that has been stirred up by Ray Comfort and the like. The issue with creationism being taught in a science class is that there is nothing scientific surrounding it, it is purely belief. If you’re going to offer something as an explanation for the beginning of life in a science class, it has to have some sort of scientific grounding, wouldn’t you agree?
Despite what you seem to believe, evolution has never claimed to answer the question of the origin of life.

Seems you need to go and brush up on the creationist playbook a bit. You seem to have messed up the wordplay trick, what you meant to say was ‘no new genetic information is generated’. It’s a common creationist saying, as technically it is correct.
Unfortunately what you said is wrong, new genetic material is added through genetic duplication. This becomes available for mutation. There are other ways in which genetic material can increase, but I’ll let you read up on those (I won’t hold my breath though).

We didn’t evolve from apes, how many times does this have to be explained. We have a common ancestor, meaning we evolved in a different direction and at a different rate. Primates clearly evolved at a slower rate. There was no such thing as humans or apes at the time our common ancestor existed.
September 27, 2013 at 11:02am
‘I was brought to the fact that Macro-Evolution was incompatible with the timeframe of our universe’
I’m curious as to how you came to this fact. I don’t want to be one of those people that demands a single answer to a question with many answers, so I’m not expecting a thesis. but I studied micro biology at university and although I dropped out to play in a band, I’ve maintained an interest in the biological sciences. I can’t say I’ve come across anything that would lead me towards your stated incompatibility.

I think I need to step in and defend my country on this one.
The CHOICE to homeschool or use private school without being bankrupted in the process.
Private schooling is expensive everywhere, home schooling is no more expensive in the UK than anywhere else.
The CHOICE to own a firearm.
You can own a firearm (most don’t want to though)
The CHOICE to start a business in an environment in which it can turn a profit.
Started a company doing motion graphics work for TV about 18 months ago, making a lot of money.
The CHOICE to purchase health insurance, or not.
I chose to purchase private health insurance.
The CHOICE between driving a glorified golf cart or something more substantial.
I don’t even know what this means, you appear to have a heavily manipulated idea of the UK. The school run in the morning is a constant stream of massive 4x4s.
The CHOICE to express your political opinions without fear of an audit.
As above ‘I don’t even know what this means, you appear to have a heavily manipulated idea of the UK’. You’re far more likely to be spied on and have your rights abused for your political position in America.

What about the countless countries that have imposed stricter gun controls over the years, without it resulting in genocide? Oh, of course, it doesn’t back up your inane point.

Creation has no argument in the scientific field, as it is based on a fixed position with completely unreliable evidence. Creation science is entirely a manipulation of existing science and brings nothing of it’s own that hasn’t been debunked. Real science doesn’t have to disprove something that doesn’t follow the scientific method.
I’ve studied the science and I’ve examined arguments for creationism and read a few books by intelligent design proponents and I am yet to see anything from creation and intelligent design that withstand any critical examination.
The difference between you and me, is that you are coming from a fixed position. There are some things that regardless of what is put in front of you, you would never accept were wrong. Whereas if someone discovers something tomorrow, that wiped out the theory of evolution and it was tested and proven correct I would accept it. This is why creation has nothing to do with science.
