You guys are trained to interpret history by a process called uniformitarianism. You see a faucet dripping one drop of water per minute into a glass that has 600 drops in it, and you interpret that as the glass having been there at least 10 hours, with no one around.

I'm trained to interpret history by a process called catastrophism. I see a faucet dripping one drop of water per minute into a glass that has 600 drops in it, and I interpret that as, at one point, the faucet having been turned on, then off again, by a transcendent Person.

I think it is YOU who does not understand what separation of church and state means. It means that the state cannot use the public schools (or the courts) to enforce any particular world-view (which in the Founder's time was called Religion).

The MoCo school board is forcing a particular worldview on its students by presenting homosexuality as innate (which is a belief, not a fact) and 'normal' and 'acceptable.' You do not get to say that your worldview about moral behavior is ok for the state to support and mine is not.

Therefore, we leave the issue out of the tax-funded forum! You see, that is separation of Church and state. Just because your church is the one of "secularism' doesn't make it any less Constitutionally supportable.

Muslim medical students are refusing to obey hygiene rules brought in to stop the spread of deadly superbugs, because they say it is against their religion.

Women training in several hospitals in England have raised objections to removing their arm coverings in theatre and to rolling up their sleeves when washing their hands, because it is regarded as immodest in Islam.

Universities and NHS trusts fear many more will refuse to co-operate with new Department of Health guidance, introduced this month, which stipulates that all doctors must be "bare below the elbow".

The measure is deemed necessary to stop the spread of infections such as MRSA and Clostridium difficile, which have killed hundreds.

What’s going to happen when humans are successful [with human cloning]. Will cloned humans have spirits? If they don’t, could demons enter them? With no human spirit to contend with in a genetically perfect body, what havoc could these beings wreak on the world? And how would they be stopped?

The really funny thing is that Charles Darwin recanted his evolution theory very late in life. Of course, no one wants to see that now. I had a geology professor in college who admitted that evolution as it is taught cannot be true. It relies on masses of 'missing links' that should have shown up in the fossil record by now. If they never show up, then evolution has been disproven. How often do you hear people talk about it? There is no proof or series of proofs for evolution that would show an unbroken string from some ape-like creature to man. They have no string of evidence. They know it. They don't care.

Evolution is a religious belief. Science theories are very similar to religous beliefs, except they add in crap like hydrogen, oxygen etc.

Many people around the world worship the e=mc[^]2 formula and worship Einstein for that formula which says that the energy produced by an amount of gold is the same energy produced by the same amount of lead: Al last, the lead become gold, the old dream of the Alchemists!. With 1 gram of sand one can produce the energy that produce 1 gram of Uranium!. Isn't that marvelous?

In his letter to President Roosevelt - August 1939, Einstein clearly shows that the above formula is just a fraud, he didn't encouraged Roosevelt to use water, sand, garbage or paper, but just the very specific element URANIUM:

You have got to be kidding. Evolution is my perfect example of non-reasoning. If it were so reasonable, why do we have to forcibly indoctrinate children into believing it, and why are evolutionists so terrified of allowing creationists' to even state their cases?

If Obama is truly a believer in Jesus, and has made Him Lord of his life, why does he maintain his ties to the Muslim Faith by retaining his Muslim name. I mean, even Saul changed his name to Paul after his conversion, and others throughout the Old and New Testament were renamed by God after they came face-to-face with Him.

[discussing whether it is possible for babies to sin]

Take a shiny object and wave it in front of a baby and as sure as the sun comes up, he'll reach for it.

Now, take it away from him and watch what happens. He'll pitch a fit because he wants that object.

That's coveting, which is a sin.

i think the only women who should spend time going to university, in pursuit of career, are barren women

they should be the foremost in the community and the ummah when the services of women are needed

not to say other women are forbidden from doing these things, but this pursuit of careers is damaging our families, as it is damaging the families of the kuffar

When I was 7 or 6 years old several years ago watching the cartoon Scooby-doo I was influenced by these occultic things.

What are these occultic things in Scooby-Doo show you ask? As I can remember there were witchcrafts, voodoo dolls, spells, levitation, witches, demons, satanic and occultic symbols.

And how did they influence me you ask? Not only me, but the children around me watching the show also. They and I were amazed and curious. We had this desire to make spells, learn magic and rituals, and "Put dangerous and inappropriate things in a large bowl with fire and sticks under it."

And yes I tried it before.

Well, i'm above 13 yrs old and below 18 yrs old. It is bad for the eyes and ears of the children to watch and hear these kinds of stuff because their minds are open and they can be easily influenced like I was.

I think this type of sex is proabably immoral conduct for everyone. I'm speaking of both anal and oral sex which we know to be grossly immoral conduct for fornicators both gay and hetero.

Even in a male/female marriage I believe it can become sin when it becomes the end to the means, meaning it is more than just a prelude to intercourse in a marriage.

That is what some pastors have said, and I believe they are right. Sex can become witchcraft and idolatry in a male/female marriage.

[1. Meteors are not stars.
2. The craters on earth are made by meteors not stars, a star cannot fall.
3. The varying erosion of craters cannot be caused by one flood event.
4. A global flood is physically impossible.]

I'm not saying your a fool but you incompetently read my posts.
A meteor is just a rock and so is a star when its knocked down to its basics. The flood event , I'm suggesting, had nothing to do with the war between Satan and michael. Since the bible says a third of the stars would fall to earth then the bible thinks its possible. So if its a past event then are there now big holes everywhere that are pre-flood.

I disagree with you. This IS the problem with freedom of speech, freedom of religion and democracy. If it weren’t for these things, Fred and his fanatics would not be able to spread their false teachings and many lives would have been saved.

God didn't ordinate Democracy. It was the Pagan homosexual Greeks who introduced this blasphemous system which lays the power of the state in the hands of the stupid majority. (Real) Israel was ruled by a holy dictatorship installed and supported by God. The Holy Inquisition at the Middle Ages, while not punishing people for merely following false teachings, would trial anyone who tried to spread his or her corrupt teachings. Pope Gregory XVI even condemned democracy at some point, I think.

No, these liberal teachings are bad and ungodly. And they should be fought wherever they appear. A Catholic theocracy, like the Papal States before 1870, would be the ideal system.

Christianity is not a religion, as is Atheism (note the capital "A"). "Religion" is man constructing a belief system in search for a creator of the universe. Atheists claim "materialism" or "naturalism" is the creating force of the universe...

Christianity is Creator God revealing Himself to individuals in real time. That is a reality-based experience, not a man-made "story".

When you study science classes part of the course work is devoted to laboratory experimentation. There are no evolutionary experiments to do in biology study. Evolution is a 'theory' of the gaps. Like when a young female student is frightened in the lab by a white rat, she is comforted by the thought that millions of years ago it was a rhinocerous.

My kids were studying different religions (Christianity, Judaism, and islam). I told the teachers that my kids were to be sent to the library when they discussed islam. The school had no problem in following my instructions. As a matter of fact, they just smiled and said, "can't blame you for that".
