"Hm, I had a look. The front pages of talkorigins and truorigins are quite telling - note the derision on trueorigins right off the bat:
"Advocates of evolutionary theory practice evolutionism when they routinely invoke (and dogmatically defend) naturalistic and humanistic philosophical presuppositions, and arbitrarily apply those presuppositions to their interpretation of the available empirical data. This fact (which many of them zealously deny) severely erodes evolutionists’ credibility, and effectively disqualifies them from any claim to objectivity in matters concerning origins and science"
Now what was that complaint about "the strange mindset of Darwinists, who posit that anyone who believes in creation cannot be "a scientist"?
Here we have creationists positing that anyone who subscribes to methodological naturalism in their scientific work is eroding his or her credibility and effectively disqualifies themselves...
A strange mindset indeed, huh? "
seven that are detestable to him:
17 haughty eyes,
a lying tongue,
hands that shed innocent blood,
18 a heart that devises wicked schemes,
feet that are quick to rush into evil,
19 a false witness who pours out lies
and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.
A group of us guys who are currently reading (along with whatever else they are reading) one proverbs for every day of the month are hopefully getting some read good from it. Proverbs is an interesting book that seems quite meaningful to Christians and other believers in God whereas it will often seem incomprehensible to God-despisers. The above is pretty clear to anyone, though, I would think. If you are a person who supports evil or is comfortable lying or thinks he/she is superior to others, God has a problem with you. It isn't my job to judge people. I can be mistaken because I cannot see into your thoughts and intentions whereas God can. I hope you don't see yourself listed above...
Here in the USA we supposedly believe the following:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Any of you who feels stifled by being mere commenters here could start their own blog. It isn't a hard thing to set up. You could ramble on for ten thousand words on abiogenesis if you liked there. Please feel free to start your own blog. Then you will be able to determine what direction your blog takes. Maybe no one there will even mention God?
and store up my commands within you.
2 Keep my commands and you will live;
guard my teachings as the apple of your eye.
3 Bind them on your fingers;
write them on the tablet of your heart.
4 Say to wisdom, “You are my sister,”
and to insight, “You are my relative.”
5 They will keep you from the adulterous woman,
from the wayward woman with her seductive words.
It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble.
It is a wonderful thing to know that many of my students have become missionaries or teachers or preachers or military men or women, have been married and starting their own families, started businesses and so on. Teaching them about God and moral absolutes and real science seems to pay off in the real world. Teaching them to think critically about everything including their faith and why they hold to it works!
