To the six-day guy:
How long were God’s days before He created the sun and the earth, and the earth’s rotation which defines the length of our days?
By the way, God is big, beyond our imagining, and is not constrained by our dimension of time.
According to scripture God does,not have actual days. He exists apart from and sovereign over nature. He is,j ot subject to the laws that govern it. To God, whose name is ” I AM” everything is “now.”
That in no way presents a problem with six normal days of creation, as the text presents
True, but there's lots of physics and such that we don't understand. God used the word for a 'day' as a 'day'. How God put things in place and in motion is one of the great mysteries and it is beyond our understanding. We love to see it with Hubble though. :)
I don't see why people hang onto a 24 Billion year universe theory so tightly, especially Christians. There is no evidence for 'Evolution', there is lots of evidence for a Worldwide Flood, there is a lot of evidence for DNA degrading from a pair of perfect humans prior to sin. Our Genetic Load matches Biblical timelines very well. Look up Mitochondrial Eve, etc. The only missing link is Christ, and He is missing from secular scientist's lives.
The universe is 13.4~ billion years old, which you will note is nowhere near 24 billion, seeing as how that is almost twice as much.
Not only is there no evidence for a world wide flood, geologists concluded by the 1800s that the flood had never happened while trying to find evidence of when the flood happened.
There's plenty of evidence for evolution, I keep posting it all over these threads. I'll save you the time looking for it.
There, you can take a class if you want to.
There's one that's easy to follow, you be sure and tell them why it doesn't count.
As for genetics? Who lied to you? Mitochondrial Eve lived about 150,000 yaers ago, and I find it hilarious as all hell that you accept something we only even understand propertly because... of evolution.
By the way would you like to take a shot at explaining human chromosome #2? The creationists at the Dover trial sort of had nothing to say about it. You've heard of the Dover trial right? That would be the trial where evolution was put to the test against creationism... and creationism got crushed and dismissed as non-scientific and faith based.

Is there a “who can be most offended” contest going on???
The excessive sensitivity has eliminated opportunities to teach military history to people who might not otherwise have access to the info. Countless opportunities to explain the meaning of the image have been passed up.

Naaaa, Cats have been used in comparative anatomy or biology classes for many decades. Consider it as recycling, since so many cats are euthanized. It’s unbelievably hypocritical for PETA to be commenting on this, since they euthanize the vast majority of animals coming into their “care”.
Did your TEE VEE tell you that Pat Robertson is a nutcase?

“Mom Changes Her Anti-Vaccine Stance After All Seven of Her Kids Get Viral Disease” That’s the Blaze headline in the email that I followed to get here. The blurb in the email mentioned Whooping Cough as a “viral disease”, which caused me to have NO confidence in the quality of the article. Probably someone else has mentioned that Whooping cough is caused by Haemophilus pertussis (Bordetella pertussis) which is a gram negative bacterium, not a virus.
Perhaps more unique would be to mention the most valid reason to avoid many of the vaccines. People who oppose EMBRYONIC stem cell research would not like to know that many vaccines are developed/cultured on tissue from aborted human fetuses or embryos. Here’s the list of vaccines and biologicals. http://www.cogforlife.org/vaccineListOrigFormat.pdf . You can choose some ethical alternatives. Please encourage the drug companies to make ethical vaccines.

I’m still concerned about Obama’s long record of supporting infanticide, and of forcing citizens to participate in activities which are against their religions. I am also concerned that he is so obsessed with separating South and Central American children from their parents, trafficking them to the U.S., and providing them with birth control and abortions. Will a pregnant, illegal immigrant child feel free to refuse a government provided abortion?
What long record of supporting infanticide?
What are you talking about?

The media knows that Obama is like Carter, and Iranian leaders don’t respect him. He could never negotiate the release of Hekmati.

In the end, Indiana will benefit from leftist extremists leaving the state, or taking their business elsewhere. This will lift the burden of social and financial liabilities that automatically comes with the presence of leftists.

Atheism IS a religion. It purports without evidence that the universes are self generating and self maintaining.

Certainly Ben Carson had a much different experience of life growing up than Glenn Beck. He has seen different things than Glen Beck has seen.
He also has the perspective of a health care professional who understands the suffering caused by the spread of preventable (STI) diseases to even his pediatric patients.
There are many medical professionals who are far less enamored by the risky sexual lifestyles touted by the mainstream media, simply for the increased and unnecessary suffering and deaths which are caused.
It really bothers those of us in health care to see babies born with HIV, herpes, gonorrhea, etc. We know injectable drug use is a choice. We know sexual behavior is a choice, outside of rape. It is established from the existence of bisexuals that choice is involved in sex orientation too.
I consider Black Conservatives in this generation to be a cut above most people because they have already proven their strength by swimming directly against the tide.
Perhaps it is most appropriate to become 100% pure libertarian about sex: Make people fully fund their own sexual choices and 100% of the consequences.
WOW. I so enjoyed reading your comments, especially the last sentence. SUCH COMMON SENSE AND WISDOM. Maybe you should run for political office. I WOULD VOTE FOR YOU.
Likewise, as to SDR's assessment. Your approach and honesty mirrors that of Dr. Carson, but it is centered on logic and not emotions, and thus not worthy of Glenn or a large majority of average folks, unfortunately, to even attempt to comprehend.

Since studies show that the majority of women surveyed felt that they were coerced or pressured to get an abortion, this “right to choose” expression is not relevant to the abortion debate.

Prayers for Don Radcliff and his pharmacy team, for God to keep them safe.

Glenn Beck forgot that the Tea Party isn’t a party. It’s a state of mind. No one has the power to change the name.
If it were a party, I’d say it should change its name AFTER the Republicans and Democrats change their names. Both of those party names have become dirty words to me.
Glenn has been up in the rarefied circle of elites for too long and it’s affecting him.

The Tebow commercial with the live kid was so much more uplifting. Remember that one?

Some more of this kind of inventiveness would circumvent Obamacare.
Imagine the middle class being able to pay for such things as limb and joint replacements in cash, and needing insurance for only the most catastrophic disasters.
The Unlimited Tomorrow website mentions that LaChapelle is taking a valuable message on the road that people can learn outside of the ‘education system’.
Imagine how inexpensive education and health care would be without the exorbitant overhead of corporate/government cronyism.
And the Corporate Medical device makers will lobby the FDA to ban all of his products, research, and force a SWAT team raid on his house.
Or they will simply do what big Corps always do. Lobby for regulations that will put him out of business. And the FDA/HHS will find a way to oblige.

Passing your clarification on, because the media won’t. Thanks for illuminating this issue.
It is sad that so many, who call themselves “conservatives”, drink the crap flavored koolaid spewed by the lamestreamers about Sarah Palin.

The philosophical system of Buddhism does not address a particular Deity, but millions of Buddhists everywhere worship the Deity according to their own vision, (which might be of plural Deities). It is more precise to say that Buddhism is non-theistic.
There are various visions of God(s) acknowledged by various Taoist sects. It might be safe to say that there is not such a concept of a personal God (intimately involved with the created beings) as in Christianity.
 January 26, 2015 at 11:05am
The Creator is unchanged by the various visions and concepts that people have, and doesn’t disappear with the denials of atheists. Stephanopoulos….. one of those small god people, will not grasp this idea, and atheists will keep chasing their own tails, acknowledging the Creator each time they deny that there is a God.
Us atheists are from the " show me state" of faith.
Prove your claims and we'll sit up and take notice
But as always, you really have nothing in the form of actual evidence.
You might as well worship the Flying Spaghetti Monster...as least He brings tasty sauces.
