Science is a mess. Things are supposed to be done by the scientific method, but they are not.

Luke 4:5-6 King James Version (KJV)

5 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.

6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.

“Delivered unto me,” get it? Satan is the god of worldly authority. Any time two people allow a third to tell them what’s what, that is a source of authority and Satan owns it.

Our academic system is descended from Akademos, a pagan grove near Athens, sacred to the goddess of wisdom. Members claimed ownership of all knowledge, by which they meant stuff they made up by their own powers of reasoning. Practical knowledge was left for tradesmen and servants.

So when you talk about “hard science” you are talking about the output from this bunch of pagan worshippers making up stuff in their own heads and calling it science, while insulting and rejecting people who work by observations and tests, as required by the scientific method.

Examples abound of authorities commanding people to believe made up nonsense. About half of everything we think we know about the universe is based on dark matter, which was invented in 1932 by Ian Oort to fudge his data to agree with his theory. The other half of everything we think we know is based on expanding universe theory, which is based on an assumption that red shifted light is caused by Doppler effect, and another assumption that we can estimate distances on that same observation.

All of science is muddled by such silliness. And if you challege any of it you get personal insults in lieu of actual science.

But to give a straight answer to your question, iot’s because people don’t read the bible. They look at the pages and recite what they have been told to believe. The bible plainly says “In the beginning god created the heaven and the earth.” People say “No, creation dragged on for six days, and parts of the story contradict other parts.”

Bottom line: hard science is neither hard nor science. It is a bunch of lies promulgated by the Satan’s church, the one we call “academic”.

Isn't Jewism the ultimate and purest fascism?

Quite the opposite. Fascism is fundamentally good while Jewry is fundamentally evil. Jewry directly opposes almost all of the foundational ideas fascism is built on. The essence of Jewry is domination through parasitism motivated by pure greed. Fascism is built on the ideas of hard work, self-reliance, charity, humility, submission to legitimate authority, and service motivated by selflessness.

To all you elitist urbanites.

Surrender to the constitution as it stands. Do so for the children.

You will die. You won't eat. Your sustenance comes from enemy territory. The food and drink (even water) is grown, gathered, raised and slaughtered out in flyover land. It's driven to you from, by truck drivers who come from here where our real interests lie.

The street gangs will becom militias and their leaders will be the warlords. The police you have insulted, belittled, vilified until their rules of engagement make for the forfeiture or their lives, may or may not help you. What's in it for them at this point?

The politicians will be protected for as long as they can hold loyal bodyguards. Celebrities may fare better. Eventually they'll align with the gangbanger warlords.

Minneapolis, Chicago, St.Louis, Miami and New York City will become the kind dystopian wastes seen in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Our terms are easy. Surrender to the constitution. Never more seek one size only solutions to local issues nationwide. Do it for the children. Develop ethics before preaching them. Let no minion of Satan convince you life is supposed to be fair.

We have guns. Sometimes they're scary looking. You won't know who has them but you must have the common sense to see it as the good thing it is. Come to terms and surrender to the nation you live in.

(In answer to “What will the world be like the day after the rapture occurs?”)

The day after, the news of the 7000 dead will be televised everywhere. Nations of the United Nations will say where does the USA have the right to kill those who were raptured. At this moment they will ignore the many Christians who claim they are being visited by people who werekilled in it. Imagine killed in New York but visiting your Malawi relatives the same day after death.

The nations will all say this (how dare you kill our citizens) because many will be 7-day green card or visa passports from THEIR country. The USA President will blame the churches who lied to him saying this was a suicide. Blame the grape Kool-Aid served. I guess serving grape Kool-Aid jokes about churches gives the right to kill them saying they were there to stop death. BUT did they stop death in Waco. From what i recall, not a gun was fired of all those Waco stored weapons. Now with no weapons and no poison in the grape Kool-Aid how do you justify this church was threatened and then killed. The other churches caused it, and now these churches (all churches of the world) will not let the USA force PEACE on them, and so now those churches do fight, and UNTIL they are all dead. The effect sweeping the planet everywhere. Meanwhile those 7000 killed are unveiled to Satan that God has found 144,000 perfect people (perfect-enough) to let them all be flesh for 40 days to save Christian human flesh thru asteroid Armageddon which puts the water canopy greenhouse back up. Thus the HELL is 40 days of hell for YOU, but 40 days rejoicing for Christians knowing day 40 starts the year-long Flood and its survival on mountains. The rapid growth of plants and fruit for food with that water canopy is so much nicer than Noah’s getting off the ark to eat animals and grass grain (bread). But the year on island mountains will be very rationing. I suggest killing nasty beast to feed the hungry animals that crowd around the human survivors. I noticed in Miami how birds and cats gather to be fed by fisherman gutting their fish.

(In answer to Why did Greek and Egyptian beliefs (among others) become mythologies but Jewish and Catholic beliefs became religions?”)

Because the Greek and Egyptian religions were simply myths and legends and nothing else, whereas Judaeo-Christianity is a true revelation from the really existing God, acting in human history.

It is important to know that Atheist hide behind Ad hoc hypothesis. Every thing they know is an adjustment of the equation to keep their failures current with the mind set of the public. This is also called the Axis of Evil. The bible is not really a scientific book, but it explains scientific beliefs ever so slightly. Which drives scientists mad. Mad enough for them to do Ad hoc. One cannot explain matter without intelligent design. You cannot make the leap into evolution without it. Which is why the missing link cannot be found. That takes a creator to do so. Bread a dog with a cat it cant be done. But some how it is done from ape to man. If its so easy as scientists claim then it should have been done over and over again. Try it and it is said you end up having AIDS. Laughable i know. I don't even know if that theory is true or not, but it had a good run….. its really not about faith but the bible really does explain our existence quite well. And science is only there to distort it. In order to understand i would suggest that people explore our quantum reality rather then mediocre science.

Who assumes the whole earth would have been flooded? The whole world takes on more information after the nature of the world became known.

Your young child might love you more than anything in the whole world, but might not know the first thing about the size and nature of the world.

If you think that is funny try explaining the existence of the Universe including all the failed universes in the multiverse which must have been to account for the perfect balance of this universe getting the gravitation constant just strong enough to group into planets, stars, solar systems, and galaxies and not too strong to collapse everything?

Scientist say the number of failed universes to statistically explain this one getting it right are in the magnitude of 10 to the power of 123.

I believe the above number is larger than the number of atoms in the known universe.

The probability of disbelief is far sketchier than that of belief.

How do you think it will go under this evidence.

God knows everyones every secret thought.

God knew before you were even born every motive why you disobeyed Him

God knows every crime you did and everything in your life.

God said if you just commit even one crime against God’s commands you commit ALL OF THEM.

what will you say to defend yourself. You who are lawless.

M Petersen #fundie quora.com

(emphasis mine)

From what I’ve seen and talked to people about, it seems to be motivated by a strong belief, even a need, for the Bible to not be true. If a person can discredit the Bible as not true, written by simple men who weren’t inspired by God because they didn’t understand our more modern science, then they don’t have to submit to God and can be the masters of their lives. Pride is the ultimate sin that seems to be the root of all other sins. It’s why Satan was cast out of heaven. It’s why Adam and Eve were cast out of the garden. It seems to still be a major reason why people reject God. Scripture has endured many different attacks throughout time and this is a new rendition of a very old attack that has been popularized by many famous scientists lately (ex: Dawkins, Harris, etc). Add in the fact that the medieval church persecuted scientific advancement (ex: Galileo) and held rigidly to dogma about the world, supported by misunderstandings, and you have another reason why some folks feel they are justified in rejecting the Bible. However, the fact remains that there is absolutely nothing in the Bible that is disproven by science. It’s important to remember the purpose of Scripture, which is to reveal Jesus to the world and the message of redemption and reconciliation through Him. Compared to that, everything else is secondary.

Hope this helps! God bless!

Let me tell you my story. I used to be an hours praying, Bible disecting, days fasting Christian who used to go to church every day of the week that there was a service (which, at the time was 4 times a week, including rehersals). I could see the influence of the Devil in any source of media. And make a good argument by the bible. I was never irrational.

How I felt about dragons. There was a time when I did not like dragons. Because dragons associated to snakes associated to the Devil. I didn’t really mind snakes. At the time, I just thought they shouldn’t be kept as pets, but they are still God’s creation, and God used snakes. Like Moses’s staff, or the bronze snake in the desert. But dragons are not creation of God. What is the dragon?

To me, the dragon was the devil pretending to be God. Specially Chinese dragons. The snake was a clever creature in the garden of Eden, who gave Adam and Eve the knowledge of right and wrong (in other words, stole their innosence, corrupted their innocent minds). Asian dragons are wise, and they impart knowledge to mankind. So, these are not ordinary snakes God’s creation. These were the snakes representative of the Devil. That’s what dragons were to me.

To me, the Asian dragons were born as any other mythology. Distortion of the truth and some influence of the Devil. The dragon had been given aditional features to be more awesome (in the more traditional sense), and had been made big and celestial, and even been given power over nature. It had become a deity. The dragon was a god, like the Devil has always wanted to be.

So what about the other dragons? To me, they were still representatives of the Devil. Maybe not worshiped gods, or at least not directly, but devilish snakes stealing the love of the people. Dragons are cute and friendly? Demons are shapeshifting deceivers. They can be cute and friendly too. To me, dragons were teaching people to accept demons if they are cute and act friendly. Because they only pretend to be, but they really want to condemn your soul. Or at least, that was my perspective. And hey, according to Islam, there is a slight possibility that demons can genuinely turn good. Anyway:

I also did not like when I spent nine hours in fasting and prayer and reading the bible and singing christian songs in my room all by myself, and felt in communion with God, but went to my Christian uncle’s house to visit, and we would watch a movie, to which I would be tempted not just by myself, but by my family. And even if the movie was not about anything of the Devil, when we would finish watching the movie, that feeling of communion with God was gone.

Despite that, all my life I have been fascinated by lizards and dinosaurs. So of course, I was naturally fascinated by dragons. But the bible says “deny yourself, pick up your cross and follow me”. And that’s what I did. A few months after, I read Job. I have read like 66% of the bible. I had heard of the leviathan before, but most of the time, I forgot, and also, because I had only heard about it, I did not know what to think. Even after I read about it, I was not sure what to think. I was going back and forth between my bible and my nearly 10lb biblical dictionary. And I read the psalms. Specially psalm 104. After a while, it seemed more reasonable to me that leviathan is a real animal. And dragon is no more devil than it is wolf or snake. Dragons are no more devils than lions are gods. God is not literally a lion, and even if he were, that doesn’t make all lions gods. The Devil is not literally a dragon, and even if it were, the rest of dragons are not devils.

But most dragons are not like leviathan either. And those that are, often are compared to gods. Like Godzilla. Btw I also did not like Godzilla because people compared him to gods. And Godzilla is not a dragon, but one of the most similar things to leviathan.

So, dragons were still representative of the devil to me for a while. But later I started thinking about it. Were they really representative of the Devil? They were mostly just like normal animals. And then I stopped thinking of dragons as the Devil.

But I still had all the other issues with fantasy and dustraction and stuff. So yeah.

What is the evolutionary benefit of coughing?

Imagine you are the first ever life form. Some how you grow to have lungs and when you eat something it goes down into those lungs. (don’t forget evolution is supposedly guiding your formation, so it doesn’t realize you need a stomach or an esophagus for food to travel to the stomach), but it gets the lungs right, but the food goes down the wrong way, and the gods of chance an luck have not had the time nor knowledge to have developed a cough reflex to push the wrong stuff back out of the lungs. So you did, because you were haphazardly formed by the gods chance and luck of the evolutionists.

Evolution did nothing to help any organisms. They were designed and created by God.

Man could not have authored the Bible. We know that the Bible is authored by God because it foretells the future with 100% accuracy every time. No other book in the world has 100% fulfilled prophecy. This shows that it comes from the mind of God. Man would not write a book about how his God whom he loves and worships gets crucified. Man would teach that we get to God by our good works. The Bible is accurate from Science, Archaeology, Prophecy, Unity and Morality.

Dean Cooper #fundie quora.com

For me, ONE of the main reasons i believe in God is the sheer impossibility of the alternative.

We are living on a 6,371 km diameter rock, hurtling through space at a speed of 66,000 mph, a million miles away from a 27 million degrees Fahrenheit inferno and no-one in charge.

The Bible is not a book but a collection of 66 books, written over a span of 1600 years across 3 continents, by over 40 writers inspired by God in 3 languages yet it has ONE primary theme ( The Glory of God and salvation of mankind ) and zero errors or contradictions. It is scientifically, prophetically, archaeologically, historically and linguistically accurate.

Ignore the word "trinity". its not important.

Modern abortion is nothing more or less than ancient Molech worship revived. It is the promise of liberation from commitment and financial freedom. Read through the Historical Books of the Bible to see how the practice played out in the natural. Then read the Old Testament prophetic books to see what those men of God had to say about the practices of child sacrifice. “A woman’s right to choose” is fraudulent on its face. It is not your choice to terminate a healthy living soul that grows within you. Nor is it a man’s right to bully a woman into doing so. Please keep in mind that these medical emergencies that the pro-abortion crowd likes to bandy about are so rare as to be statistically non-existent.

D. Paul Walker #fundie quora.com

There are only two religions in the world, the one or the other, the wrong or the right. They are quite easy to tell apart. The one is based on man's works; the other is not of man's works. The one says to rely on yourself, find yourself, heal yourself, clean yourself. The other says your lost, incurable, filthy. The one says you've got time, it will all work out in the end; the other says seek help today, now. The one is a struggle, a constant effort; the other is a gift bringing peace, the product of grace and mercy. The one will make a few allowances, nobody is perfect; the other demands the sinless perfection that you can never provide yourself and—provides it for you.

The one or the other, the wrong or the right one, how to chose? The easy answer to that question is look in a mirror.

Proverbs 20:9 Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?

It is your decision, your choice. Are you righteous, holy, clean, pure? Contemplate just your thoughts over the last week. If your able to make yourself pure choose the one, if you are not so clean and pure and unable to get that way, choose the other.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

By grace are ye saved through faith, it is the gift of God, not of works, is a singular unique religion separate out of all the religions of the world. This where the contention arises. On the one hand, all those religions can come together without condemning each other, for they are all the same religion—works. On the other hand, you have a religion that condemns all the rest by grace through faith, a free gift without the efforts of man.

This response was taken from my study, “Introduction to Biblical Studies”

//Would you choose to burn in Hell forever, if it turns out that God is pure evil, such as because he slaughters children and tortures people forever, or would you bow down and worship him to save yourself from having to suffer the same fate as others?//

Thank you for the A2A.

“he slaughters children and tortures people forever,” you say.

Someone else once asked me a ridiculous question like yours somewhere else. They posted a video of how “bloodthirsty” God is.

The video cited verses where God punished people by death including:

drowning Pharoah’s army in the sea, failing to mention that they repeatedly refused to obey God and sought to enslave Israel again;
destroying 3,000 people when Moses returned from the Holy mountain with the Lord’s commandments, failing to mention that they were worshipping idols and behaving like wild pagans, despite experiencing several miracles of God which resulted in their freedom from enslavement, and who were even given the choice of choosing God or rejecting Him before God destroyed them. Those who rejected Him, despite gaining their freedom by God’s miracles, were rightfully destroyed;
blasphemers being stoned to death, as per Divine Law;
destroying 600 Philistines! (not nearly enough, imo), failing to mention that they were aggressive, warmongering people who physically threatened Israel’s development as a nation for 200 years, and who continue to do so to this day, putting out “Pallywood” videos, playing the victim to the hilt despite their international war crimes, and promising the destruction of Israel and worldwide Jewish genocide.

The video continues attacking God, using several examples from the Book of Judges, failing to mention that the purpose of the Book of Judges is to show to the consequences of disobeying God. The Book of Judges establishes the recurrent pattern of sin that would dominate the time of the judges. By the end of the book, it is clear that Israel violated her covenant with God in almost every possible way. “Charlie” obviously expected that God should ignore His own Divine Laws, ignore the breaking of the Covenant between Himself and Israel, ignore those trying to destroy Israel which He loves, and expecting that God should just sit on His hands in silence. I wonder if “Charlie” expects police and Court judges to do the same when mortal laws are broken.

The video then continues on to attack the Book of 1 Samuel. Israel had a priesthood that was corrupt. Samuel’s sons who served as judges in Beersheba were also corrupt. The people of Israel showed open disdain for the Word of God, and refused to listen to His prophet, Samuel. A remnant of Israel was righteous and longed for the glories of a just monarchy; God granted their desire. He gave them King Saul, however, Saul also ignored the Word of the Lord. The Philistines continued to be a threat to Israel, and they captured the ark of the covenant. But “Charlie” expects that God should accept it all quietly. The video even condemns David killing Goliath!

The video then moved on to attack the Book of 2 Samuel which covers the establishment of the kingdom of Israel. The book emphasizes that God rejected Saul for his disobedience, chose David for the throne, and disciplined David for his pride. The key to David’s successful reign was his relationship with God. God described him as a man after His own heart:

In his youth, David demonstrated his strong faith in God by challenging a giant with only a few stones and his faith in God’s strength to win the battle;
In his adulthood, he continued to rely on God for guidance and strength;
Early in his reign, he demonstrated the importance of his religious convictions to all Israel by bringing the ark of the covenant to Jerusalem in the midst of a lavish celebration before the Lord;
Following that, his eagerness to build a temple for the glory of the Lord was known to all.
David led the Israelites back to the true worship of God.
Even when he sinned, he demonstrated to the people his repentant heart before the living God. David’s religious leadership was the most significant part of his reign.

Through all the national and personal events of His people in order to accomplish His will, God gave David a glimpse of His ultimate will in the promises He gave him, commonly called the Davidic Covenant. In this unconditional Covenant, God promised David an eternal dynasty, an eternal throne, and an eternal kingdom. If the wicked had to die to accomplish that, so be it.

The video then mentions that no number of the dead were available from the Flood, but fails to mention that mankind was so wicked that, among other abominable human behaviour, human women were having relations with demons which resulted in supernatural, wicked, giant offspring:

etc.

If God hadn’t wiped out life on Earth when He did, giants would still be part of our population today, if not the only population today, certainly increasing in evil, and would make this sinful world of murder, rape, pedophilia, necrophilia, bestiality, wife-beating, child abuse, liars, thieves, and disease, look like a picnic.

The video also condemed God for the death of all the first-born of Egypt, failing to mention that this Divine judgment was the result of an Egyptian edict that all the first-born of Israel should die, so God turned it around on them. Perfect justice.

The video then moved on to attack Ezekiel 9 where God destroys the wicked, failing to mention that the people were perversely wicked, and that God protected those who cried out to Him for protection, by destroying them.

Then the video moved on to attack the Book of Jeremiah (“the weeping prophet”). Jeremiah’s ministry covered a very critical time in the history of the ancient Middle East. Josiah, the King of Judah, died at the hands of the Egyptian army. The people of Judah lost their freedom and didn’t turn to God, but to idols. This idolatry was the reason for Jeremiah’s proclamations of God’s judgment. “Charlie” obviously didn’t know that idol worship is against God’s Commandments and is punishable by death when violated. The book of Jeremiah includes many difficulties including Nebuchadnezzar defeating Pharoah, Jehoiakim rebelling against Nebuchadnezzar, Jehoiachin replacing Jehoiakim on the throne for a short time, and thousands of political and religions leaders in Babylon. Jerusalem’s walls were eventually breached, Nebuchadnezzar’s army besieged Jerusalem, the temple was burned, along with palaces, houses, and other administrative buildings. To Jeremiah, God was the incomparable God of all creation, was the Lord over nature and history, and He reigned not only over Judah and Israel but over all nations. Jeremiah was very aware of the covenant between God and Israel. The covenant bound Israel to God in a special relationship of love, faithfulness, and hope. But the covenant had two sides: Faithfulness to the Lord and to the covenant would bring blessing; disobedience would result in punishment, destruction, and exile. Finally, Jechonias (called Coniah in Jeremiah 22:24-30) was so evil, there was a special curse pronounced on Jeconiah that affected the throne of David, which in turn affected the rule of Jesus on David’s throne, which could only happen through the genealogy of Mary. The video fails to mention all of this and more.

The video then mocked God, i.e. “God is love, 1 John 4:8,” etc., failing to take into account all that they failed to mention up to this point.

Then it mocks the book of 1 Kings when God chastises Israel, and misses the entire point of the book which is the importance of obedience to God’s law. Naturally, the video disregarded the false religion of the Canaanites, the failures of the Israelites to walk in God’s ways, and only focuses on God’s chastisement which serves as a warning to us. Unfortunately, some of us are just too thick to get it.

Then it moved on to attack the Book of Isaiah which details the prophet’s message of condemnation to the 8th-century Israelites, pronouncing judgment on their immoral and idolatrous lifestyles.

At this point, the video records God “killing” almost one million (1,000,000) people, not including the Flood.

Alas! …

… the video introduces Satan - WHO KILLED ONLY TEN PEOPLE! count ‘em, 10! - and continues to attack God and Scripture by attacking the book of 2 Chronicles.

While Satan holds steady at 10 murders, the video attacks the Book of Acts (obviously believing that God should overlook lying to the Holy Spirit, too).

The video’s pièce de résistance? God kills Jesus.

The video’s conclusion: God killed over 2 million people compared to Satan who killed just 10.

The ignorance about the death of the Christ and the number of murders by Satan is astounding. “Charlie,” - who posted the video to straighten me out - didn’t understand that when Satan lied to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, their sin was generational without end. Every single person after them was born in sin and even conceived in sin (Psalm 51:5). There are almost 8 billion people on the planet today, and there were billions on the Earth in the last 5,780 years, every single one of them was born in sin, and separated from God because of it. “Charlie” didn’t understand that Satan killed billions of people because of what he did to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Satan is the biggest mass murderer in the history of the world.

Enter The Christ.

“Charlie” didn’t understand that God loves mankind so much that God became incarnate to die for the sins of mankind - including “Charlie” himself - based on God’s own LAW, Leviticus 17:11. “Charlie” didn’t understand that God is a God of integrity Who wouldn’t break His own LAW despite the enormous cost to Him to save sinners from eternal punishment because of what Satan did, and because of man’s endless rebellion against Him now.

As God incarnate, the Christ restored sight to the blind, healed a paralytic, fed 5,000 people by multiplying a minimal amount of food, fed 4,000 people by multiplying a minimal amount of food, turned water into wine, cleansed the lepers, restored hearing to the deaf, healed a man with a withered hand, healed the woman afflicted with a hemorrhage, healed a possessed mute, healed a possessed crippled woman, healed the possessed man in the tombs, restored Peter's ear after it was cut off, cast out demons, calmed a storm, walked on water, raised the dead, suspended the laws of the universe, and performed so many other miracles that if every one of them were written down, the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written (John 21:25).

The Jewish leaders hated Him because He claimed to be exactly who He is, the Jewish Messiah and the Son of God (Matthew 26:63-65). The religious Jews (the Pharisees) brought Him to the head of the Roman administration, Pontius Pilate, to sentence Him to death. Pilate found no fault in Him, but to satisfy the huge uprising of people, he sentenced Jesus to flogging. The legal limit for flogging was 40 lashes. The Romans flogged Him so much, and tortured Him in other ways to such an extent, that Scripture says that His appearance was beyond human likeness: Isaiah 52:14. As God in the flesh, He had the power to escape from it anytime He wanted to. But He loves man and wanted to reconcile us to Him, so He endured it. This is just the flogging, which shows a small fraction of what He endured:

After the horrendous beating that disfigured Him beyond human likeness, He was then mocked with a crown of thorns and more, and forced to carry His own heavy wooden cross when all His bones were out of joint: Psalm 22:14.

He was then nailed to a cross to be humiliated, and tortured to death. This link details His physical suffering: frames of physiopathology. This is no small price.

After 3 days, He rose from the dead again, sat at the right hand of the Father in heaven (Luke 22:69), and sent those who accept His sacrifice for the forgiveness of their sins, His Holy Spirit to live within us (Ezekiel 36:27; 1 Corinthians 3:16), for several reasons. Not only did God forgive us our sins if we accept the Christ as our Saviour, but He continues to gift Christians in many ways.

People today are as rebellious as ever. They’ve obviously never heard the expression “You can run but you can’t hide.”

Galatians 6:7
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked [He will not allow Himself to be ridiculed, nor treated with contempt nor allow His precepts to be scornfully set aside]; for whatever a man sows, this and this only is what he will reap.

Did you know that by 1924 when their caliphate ended, the ideology killed a total of two hundred, seventy million (270,000,000) people? And we didn’t have weapons of mass destruction or nuclear weapons. All of these people were butchered by the sword. Iran is working on those nuclear weapons now.

Here’s something legitimate to bellyache about:

Terror Attacks - This list is updated daily, and lists every single day all the way back to September 11, 2001. That’s approximately 7,000 consecutive days to date.

You might also want to look up the islamic Eid al-adha festival .

Remember:

"There is no drop of liquid as loved by Allah more than the liquid of blood." - Muslim cleric Abu Hamza

.

Christopher, if you think God was harsh in the Old Testament to people who broke His laws, violated His covenant, loved sin and Satan over Him, and chose them over being reconciled to Him, wait until the Christ returns to deal with society throwing God out of everything, and embracing and legalizing everything He forbids and abhors. When the Christ returns, they’re going to experience some serious fecal incontinence.

Thank you again for your A2A.

Question: Can mutations create new traits?

Eid Badr: The problem with your question is the definition of trait.

If you consider the ability to digest something that your stomach never digested before a new trait then yes mutations create new traits.

If you are asking about something like an animal that does not hair at all and does not produce hair at all to go through mutations and then produce hair then no, this is not possible.

Or for example if you are asking abotu something like an animal that does not have wings at all to go through mutations and then graudually have wings then not this is not possible and mutations cannot do that.

On Quora questions like this ask about brand new generally beneficial traits. Traits that are not only beneficial under certain conditions. For example E.Coli is able to activate a silent Citrate digestion gene using mutations but only if it is put in a citrate medium. And this is only beneficial when E.coli is put in a citrate medium, if this medium has no citrate then this mutation is not beneficial. So it is not generally beneficial for E.Coli to activate the Citrate digestion gene.

Another example would be becoming lactose tolerant or lactose intolerant. Either would be beneficial only under certain conditions, and that depends on your diet.

Mutations are not random.

Mutations cannot create brand new generally beneficial traits.

Mutations help species adapt to their diet and their environments and conditions.

Mutations cannot get a species or an individual out of its genome type to which it belong.

Mutations cannot transform a genome type to another genome type.

Humans had only human ancestors.

Moneys had only monkey ancestors.

E.Coli is still E.coli

Lizards are still lizards.

Finches are still finches.

Evolution is a myth.

Yes, in most civilized places in the world, cartoon pictures of little girls, no matter how pornographic, are legal. It’s also legal to be a pedophile. Only child sexual abuse is illegal.

Sure, pedophobes do their damnest to outlaw that, but most countries are unwilling to implement the concept of thoughtcrime.

Of course, I can provide no guarantees that police and courts in your place would actually follow the law. They are quite likely to be infiltrated by pedophobes and hurt you just for thinking about children or breathing the same air as children. Human rights aren’t worth much in the modern world.


There is nothing “normal” about pedophobes. They are people who let their feral instincts override their humanity and turn into violent monsters the moment children are mentioned.


Yeah, that’s exactly the way pedophobes think. Not a bit of tolerance, respect for human rights and ability to differentiate fantasy from reality.

Question: When I was a child, I was taught that dinosaurs were reptiles, but now it seems that they are treated like ancestors of birds. Does this mean that dinosaurs were in between the evolution of reptiles and birds?

Ronald Small: There is no such thing as evolution. That is why no one can show me an example of evolution. NOT ONE. Evolution requires new, novel genetic information to form out of thin air. Show me a single case of it. It doesn’t exist. Dinosaurs did not evolve into birds. For goodness sake, REPENT YOU HEATHEN! Buy a Bible!

Why are some people so against Liberals?
The progressive liberal belief in absolute equality is daily affronted by the reality of intractable racial differences. It has been over 150 years since the demise of slavery and 60 years since the demise of segregation. Neither abolition or integration has brought about the liberal utopia.

How do liberals explain this chasm between reality and their ideals and expectations? They do what all liberals do. They explain it through a combination of hysteria, denial and conspiracy theories. Even if there are no actual racists oppressing black people, they are being oppressed by the mysterious forces of “systemic racism” and “institutional racism.” White people benefit from the invisible knapsack of “white privilege.” As the evil oppressors of blacks, the only way to bring about true equality and to establish a just society is to treat white people differently than black people. White people have to be punished for their unwitting sins and the sins of their ancestors. This is “social justice” or “racial justice.”

In such a way, the twisted logic of progressive liberalism leads back to racial hierarchy, inequality and the ‘racism’ they claim to hate. Oddly enough, it leads to both intolerance and bigotry, and the loss of liberty and equality.

From a non-liberal perspective, it is utterly alien:

Science makes many presumptions to arrive at an age of 13.8 billion years for the universe. Such as, science assumes the speed of light is 186K miles a sec AND this has always has been a constant. But Genesis infers that initially light was infinite in speed and illuminated the universe without stars. God lowered the original speed of light so we could see stars at night that He made.

Secondly, science ignores all anomalies that contradict adverse issues. Such as, if the Earth were as old as you say like 4.6 billion years , then the oceans would be much more salty than they are. The inverse of the current rate of change in salinity places the age of the oceans at around 10,000 years.

The same is true for nickel powder from meteorites being deposited only on the outer edges of the Earth surface. If the Earth were billions of years old, you would find evidence of nickel at a much greater depth. But you don't.

I believe science that depends on truth, facts, and all data not just excluding evidence that conflicts with non-science suppositions.

Sanskrit, Greek and Latin are three different languages. Contrary to what some of the users have suggested, in truth, Sanskrit does NOT belong to the PIE family. There is nothing called Indo-European family of languages. Now, I might be mistaken for a Hindu fundamentalist. So let me expose this pseudo-theory called PIE. The hypothesis that Sanskrit and European languages including Greek are related is a "lie" for three reasons, among others -------------- (1) There is no language without culture: we have heard of French language and French culture; Greek language and Greek culture. The relationship between the two is such that one can NEVER exist without the other. There is no language without a culture and vice versa. If there really existed an Indo-European family of languages, how can they exist in isolation from an Indo-European family of cultures ??? Since an IE composite culture cannot be located anywhere in the world (indeed, there is Indian culture in opposition to European culture), the theory that there existed a PIE super family of languages is purely counter-intuitive, especially when there is no VALID proof (that fails the test of falsification), without which there is no question of empirical science.

I do believe you are mistaken in your response. the neuro-chemical process in the brain does not create anything. The eyes and ears does not create anything either. Our eyes and ears allow us to access what already exists. Likewise nothing is created by the brain. The brain provide access to something that already exist.

There are many drugs that will do to the brain what telescopes, etc does for the eye.

Much of our music and art and knowledge was brought back by few who could access the realm of where such exists in the 4th dimension,

(In response to: “What do you think would happen if Jesus returned?”

When He returns, not if He returns. What happens before He returns will be significant to you and me. Before He returns there will be a cleansing of wickedness beginning in the USA. How that will happen is in prophecy and we are seeing things ramping up for it. Have you seen the recent news where some are inciting violence to overthrow Trump? Are you aware of those that attempt to collapse the economy for the sake of creating chaos? Remember the protests which were egged on by those that were paid to protest? Those are the beginnings. They will get their way and all of America will break down in violence. What they plan is to place their people in power to quell the violence. What will happen is a different story, though. It will go beyond their ability to control because of other factors they didn't plan on. The end result will be that each person will have a choice to make: are they going to turn evil in order to survive or are they going to turn to God in order to survive? Those will be the great division prophesied of. Those that choose to turn evil for survival will not survive. The survivors will be those that turned to God. Even the peepers that plan on heading to the hills and live a life of self-centerdness will be hunted down by those that are evil and will be faced with the same choice of which way to turn.

In the end God will send a man that has great faith. No, he will not be like the Terminator but just the opposite. He will be humble and meek yet will have great powers bestowed upon him. He will have the ability to move mountains through faith and to cause death of goes by merely commanding it. The evil ones will see him as a weak target and will beat him. When they do it will be their last victim for he will command them to be destroyed and it will happen.

It will be through that man that Jesus Christ’s Zion Kingdom will be realized. That kingdom will be different from all other kingdoms on earth because it will be based on love, freedom, and agency. The manner of living will be unique from everything you know. Within that kingdom there will be no poor yet there will be no socialism. The citizens of that society will be the happiest on earth and will enjoy divine protection from those that would try to destroy that kingdom and society. Within that society guns and weapons are not needed for protection. There will be no prisons or jails because they would be vacant if they were built. It will truly be a refuge for those that seek to follow Jesus Christ.

After the USA comes the rest of the world in being brought to a point of having to make a decision of whether to turn evil or to turn to God. Some will turn evil thinking that they are turning to God but in the end will discover that the god of hate and war is the wrong god.

It won't be until that Zion Kingdom has been well established before Jesus will come again. When He comes in the clouds in the sky all will see Him. Those that chose to be evil will be destroyed at that time for all will have had to choose and will have made their choice. His glory will be of such intensity that it will cause mountains to melt down. Those that chose to be evil will be burned by that glory at His coming.

The remnants of Noah’s ark has been found in the Ararat mountains of Turkey. It was found buried underground but an aerial view showed the shape of what looked like a ship causing explorers to investigate and what they found is a perfect biblical description of Noah’s ark. From geographical measurements to descriptions of different levels inside. I have blind faith in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ but true archaeological evidence of biblical descriptions are being found more and more frequently. Just read the book of Exodus and then check out Sodom and Gomorrah. In fact, also look up the discovery of Noah’s Ark. And those are two small examples of Bible truths being discovered

Wow. much sophistry here.

‘White people’ is a concept that was invented by the English ruling-class.

Read your ID. It reads “white”, but that’s a social-construct just like ‘god’.

Somehow, seemingly most white atheists believe it as real as the rocks and stars.

That’s the ‘whiteness delusion’.

These facts will not go away.

You can either equate pernicious social-constructs or admit that you choose not to equate them, which is hypocrisy.

———-

Atheists would not accept the designation of Christian or any other religion being forced upon them, but have no problem with ‘whiteness’ being forced upon them by the state.

That is selective reasoning and morality.

The claim of Atheists is they use reasoning above ideologies, but yet they ignore the pernicious ideologies that serve them.

Atheists know about fallacious reasoning, except for their own.

It’s time to examine this belief.

President Trump has a peace offer on the table for Israel and the "palestinians" that includes but is not limited to $50 Billion for the "palestinians" if they will simply recognize Israel’s right to exist. It does indeed sound like the “Deal of the Century.” We will have to wait and see what the "palestinians" decide after the entire deal is presented.

As you may know, Israel is going to elections on September 17, 2019. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has been elected Prime Minister of Israel five (5) consecutive times, knows that peace can’t be made with the "palestinians" who have turned down 19 out of 19 peace proposals since the year 1919, and have broken every cease-fire agreement ever tabled, consistently firing rockets into Israeli civilian population, thereby committing international war crimes with the blessing of the United Nations. That is only one small piece of the pie that Israel is victim of.

It is possible that on Israel’s election day (September 17, 2019), someone other than PM Netanyahu could win. Some of PM Netanyahu’s rivals are determined to make peace with the "palestinians" despite their history of peace-proposal rejections and cease-fire violations. According to the Jerusalem Post, the "palestinians" hope that PM Netanyahu’s inexperienced rivals win.

Regardless of who wins this election, it appears that a peace treaty between Israel and the "palestinians" is around the corner.

As you know, the Bible speaks of a 7-year peace treaty. The "palestinians" will break this peace treaty at 3 1/2 years (Daniel 9:27). The reason for this is that centuries ago, Islam’s ‘Prophet’ Mohammed made a peace treaty with the Meccans because he couldn’t defeat them, the same way that Islam can’t defeat Israel now. Mohammed used the ‘peace time’ to strengthen his military. When Mohammed thought the time was right, he broke the peace treaty and attacked the Meccans when they least expected it, because the Meccans thought the peace treaty was in effect. Because the Meccans weren’t expecting to be attacked, Mohammed defeated them in less than 24 hours. As a result, making and breaking peace treaties with those that Islam wants to conquer became an Islamic principle of war, simply called “Al-Hudebiya” or “Hudebiya."

In the Biblical 7-year peace treaty, the moslems will break it at 3 1/2 years (Daniel 9:27). Jerusalem will be surrounded by armies and made desolate (Luke 21:20). Islam has already stolen the Jewish Temple Mount, and are going to steal the coming Jewish Third Temple when their 12th imam arrives so he can sit in it and claim that he is God (2 Thessalonians 2:4). (The Third Temple will probably be built during the first 3 1/2 years of peace.) The Islamic Black Stone will be brought to the Temple Mount (Matthew 24:15) and it will be given a mouth to speak (Revelation 13:5 of the Bible, and the islamic writing Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 961; Ibn Maajah, 2944, The Black Stone #3). Everyone who refuses to convert to Islam will be killed (Revelation 20:4; Daniel 7:23, 25.) This will happen for 1,290 days (Daniel 12:11) which is the remaining 3 1/2 years of the 7-year peace treaty. Messiah Yeshua/Christ Jesus will return at approximately 1,335 days (Daniel 12:12). At that time, He will destroy Islam (Revelation 21:1-4; Isaiah 65:17-25; Isaiah 11:6-9; Revelation 21:19-27). The thousand-year reign of Christ follows, etc.

There is speculation that the mark of the beast is a microchip. But is it reasonable to believe that Christians will be beheaded for not taking a microchip? (Revelation 20:4)

Some of you may know about the Christian persecution going on in the world right now that isn’t making the mainstream news: Christians are almost extinct in the Middle East. (You can also Google Images of Christian persecution in the Middle East.) Our brethren there are dying at the hand of Islam because they are refusing to deny Christ and convert to Islam.

Since the 7-year peace treaty appears to be around the corner, there is no time for speculation about what the mark of the beast is or isn’t. Our making the right decision will determine our eternity for sure (Revelation 14:9-11).

You answered your own question. The Canaanites sacrificed their children to their god, Molech. The way they would do it is they would place a toddler on the hands of a statue of Molech that has been over fire which made the hands red hot; the Canaanites would let the child scream until it died on those red hot hands as a sacrifice despite God (the true God) warning them to stop. After about a hundred years, God ordered the elimination of the Canaanites through Joshua. God stopped the evil of killing innocent children yet God is constantly criticized for stopping that evil by the very same people who claim God won’t stop the evils of the world today.

Question: How long were the British in Palestine?

Answer: British presence in Palestine resulted to the present day havoc in Middle East crisis. They purposefully invaded Palestine to corrupt Christianity to justify their reasons for rewriting the Bible “ The King James Version “.

They are still occupying Palestine but indirectly as they use the people that they choose to be identified as being Jewish in the fake name “Israelites “.

who are Israelites? The continent Africa and the people Africans fits every description. You can fool some of the people some of the time but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time. British lies using Christianity is over its maintenance is becoming too expensive and dangerous to the world.

lies and luxury are expensive to maintain but truth and simplicity are self maintained. It’s becoming too expensive to continuously occupy Palestine lately as killings surges both side and continuously over 75 years.

The people occupying Palestine use bombs and technology to protect themselves but the so called Africans are asked to call on the God of Isreal for protection.

Who gave us that name “ Africa”. Our original name is Israelites, we are 10 of the 12 tribes. Why did Europeans lied that we were lost .

Thomas Munos #fundie quora.com

“How do creationists explain why whales still have leftovers of their hind limbs? It serves no function.”

Creationists believe we are seeing evidence of ID in the left over hind limbs of whales, which shows robust design. Rather than evolution, we see many designs packaged into the genome to enable different designs to manifest as the environmental conditions changed. These changes aren’t mutations and natural selection, for this is way too inefficient, but it is programmed to switch based on environmental factors.

According to Creationists, the oceans were very shallow before the flood so the hind legs served a purpose of helping whales become dislodged should they find themselves in very shallow waters. Also, some scientists say it helped with mating so that too may be an additional function that it performed.

God in designing life, has intelligently designed life with a multitude of designs in the genome which can be switched on or off by environmental factors. After the flood, the need for the hind legs became unnecessary because of the deep oceans so the hind legs shrunk away allowing the flow of resources to flow to other critical organs. Rather than evidence for evolution, this is evidence of ID. A prediction of ID is that over time we will see that mutations are not the cause of this change but biological triggers are switched on or off by environmental factors enabling different designs to manifest themselves for different environments. Just like some creatures loose their sight when they start living in dark caves, so the whale lost it’s hind legs when they were no longer needed. Again, this is evidence for design and not evolution.

Modern Atheists are almost exclusively Christians in denial. Very few have achieved any sort of intellectual rejection of Christianity in its core values (ala Nietzsche). And because they have wholeheartedly swallowed the ethical presuppositions of Christianity, they get really mad when the moral picture of God—in the old testament for instance—or the state of the world around them conflicts with the atheists’ Lord and savior: Jesus Christ. Take your average Atheist, for example, waxing pathetic about how the ever present pointless suffering and evil in the world shows that there is no God.
[snip]
And that’s why the atheists get so mad: because they love Jesus Christ with all their hearts, their one and only true Lord, whose absence has destroyed all true meaning and longstanding joy from the atheist’s life.

What do you think of the recent find that the Neanderthals moved further South and were technologically more advanced than previously believed?

It serves to proves what Creationists have said all along. The Neanderthal were humans. Not humans that became humans from some animal. And this also lends credence that there are no such thing as evolved into humans. Humans are and always have been human.

There's no need to prove God the Creator to anyone - - let God do it for you! That is, He has already demonstrated who He is in extraordinary ways to all of mankind, but because of foolish pride issues, arrogance & trusting one's educational level, what their idol may have said, or trusting in their own analytical conclusions, or etc., etc., etc., atheist and a majority who believe in God's existence, but are not reconciled to our Father-God, have cut themselves off from God. We need to remember, our Father-God didn't send Jesus to reconcile every person, even though salvation is available to everyone, but Jesus came to reconcile those who earnestly seek to know who He is & is not & have a desire to “get right with God.” If there's someone you'd like to help in their discovery, try to keep in mind they may be superficial, in that, while they have questions it's not necessarily because they actually have a personal interest in learning, but have a ulterior motive.

James Watson #fundie quora.com

The bible says everyone knows there is a God <Rom.1:18–20>, (i.e. from the creation they know there is a Creator, also Ps.19:1–6). Rom.2:14–15 teaches that everyone has the law written in their hearts, so they know right and wrong. So all these nations other than Israel knew there was a God and they were sinners. If they followed the light they had, they would know how to please God and seek the knowledge of the Messiah through Israel, but they didn’t. Some came to know and please God from other countries, e.g. Ruth from Moab, Ninevah repented at Jonah’s preaching. And God is not limited, so He could reach out to individuals like He did to Abraham in the Ur of the Chaldees. But I would argue that God is just and doesn’t punish anyone who is not guilty, unless they are caught up in the punishment of a wicked nation, like Jerusalem.

Christianity is not just a faith. It is a faith based on fact. Unfortunately most who believe in Christ do not know much of the fact. Neither do they conform to the tenets of Christ’s teaching.The Bible teaches: Study the scriptures and you will find me. This is very true.

As far as atheists are concerned. There are those who enjoy debate and will debate a knowledgeable discussion and on the other hand those who will react in anger and aggression. Unfortunate, by far the greater are the latter. The only atheists I know who accepted Christ are those who set out to disprove Christianity or entered into discourse with someone who truly knows the Bible.

Jorell Herrera, Works as an Academic Writing Tutor #fundie quora.com

Simple. People don’t believe He is coming back again because they don’t believe that He came the first time. Many people are quick to try and disprove Jesus’ existence and label Him as a mythical fable simply out of ignorance. The same skeptics who viciously attack people with Christian beliefs, are the same people who have never opened a Bible in their life, and if they have, they nit-pick at verses they want to read and twist them out of context to better suit their argument. I believe speaker Ravi Zacharias once said that truth in the hands of someone who hates truth, is only ammunition for them to be even more misguided (paraphrasing). It’s a sad truth that so many people are becoming atheists, especially in an age where we are entering the end times. It isn’t easy to convince someone that the Bible is true or that Jesus is real, but it is more possible when that person accepts their imperfections and accepts Jesus into their heart, and when they are open to listen and reading what the Bible says in its entirety. In terms of realizing that Christ is coming back simply has to do with how aware they are to their surroundings. The signs of His second coming are numerous, there are prophecies from the Old Testament that are coming true as we speak, yet people are blissfully ignorant to these warnings, so they aren’t taking God’s Word seriously enough. All we can do is lead as many people to Christ as we can before it’s too late. Hope this helped!

The construct of ‘white people’ was invented solely for the purpose of oppression.

Atheists attack the concept of god because they believe it hurts society, but ignore the social construction of ‘whiteness’.

The concept of ‘white people’ was invented by the English ruling-class. That’s evidenced history.

Atheists say god in an invention that is bad for society, but ignore that the concept of ‘white people’ is an invention that is bad for society.

It was invented for division during the colonial period, and still functions for division today.

Atheists have one set of ethics they use to deconstruct the concept of god, and a completely different one to deconstruct the concept of ‘white people’.

That is selective ethics.

Kenyetta Tunne #racist quora.com

You lost the point.

‘God’ and “White People’ are both inventions. (social constructs)

Atheists speak about ‘God’ as an invention that is bad for society, but never ever speak about ‘White People’ as an invention that is bad for society, even though there is much turmoil being caused by that invented concept today.

——

This is all evidenced. The construction of the white identity is evidence. The turmoil it causes in society is evidenced.

The silence of Atheists on this issue is also evidenced.

To rephrase:

If Atheists are against constructs that are bad for society, why are they not vocally against the construct of ‘white people’?

Ah, you’re comparing God with a human. You’re saying “well, I forgive people if they commit a crime! I don’t wreak revenge on them! That’s because I’m good and God’s bad.”

But you’re a human. You’re flawed yourself, so you may cut your kids a lot of slack. (“I know I told him not to do that…but hey, I was worse when I was his age!”) Or you’re aware your rules may not be fair (“I said I’d ground her if she was out after 10…but maybe I was being a bit too strict…maybe I’ll let her off…or check what other parents are doing…”)

Whereas God isnt flawed. He doesnt have to doubt His judgements (and He spells everything out VERY clearly upfront. Eve knew PRECISELY what would happen if she ate the fruit.) So people going against Him shows theyre pitting themselves against God. And while God showed huge mercy in the OT (have you READ the story of the Israelites in wilderness, endlessly disobeying, squabbling, making idols…) He wasnt going to be mocked. Because God isnt like your soppy old Dad (where kids smirk “oh, he SAYS all this stuff but I can wind him round my little finger!”) but is the Almighty. And would we WANT a soppy old God who said one thing but…it never happened? You wouldnt know where you were. There wouldnt BE any Law (“I know it SAYS not to steal but God’ll shrug and look the other way if I smile at Him”)

God is there to be treated with reverence and love. We HAVE to follow His word. It’s not a matter for debate. You deciding that “I don’t approve of God so I’m ignoring His EVERY WORD” isnt like deciding youre not voting for a politician or shopping in a certain business. God wil prevail. Makes more sense to work with Him than try to fight, when it’s all set in stone…
