  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving.

Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

  1. Notes: Genesis 1:1 To Genesis 1:31

    *Genesis 1 / *Gen. 1 - (Re: What about *evolution?) An old earth and evolution can be true without contradicting Creationism, because evolution per se (random mutation and survival of the fittest) can coexist with miraculous creation, just as an automated process created by a human (for example, a computer program which makes random, colorful pictures which can be seen as art) can coexist with that same human sometimes performing a task himself directly (painting some pictures by hand)....
  2. Notes: Genesis 1:31 (cont'd) To Genesis 6:17

    (Re: Has not evolutionary mutation from one species to another never been shown, even with our vast fossil collection?) You will have to take that up with an evolutionary scientist, who could disagree with you. The point of what was presented above is that no matter how many evolutionary mutations from one species to another can be shown from science's vast fossil collection, this does not contradict Biblical Creationism. For evolution per se (random mutation and survival of the fittest)...
  3. Notes: Genesis 6:17 (cont'd) To Exodus 16:27

    (*Ark) Noah could have collected on the ark only land animals and birds (Genesis 7:8). Land plants, insects, and fungi could have survived the Flood on their own as seeds, eggs, and spores, which could have survived on mats of flotsam. Freshwater fish could have survived in a layer of fresh water at the top of the floodwaters. Also, God must have miraculously brought breeding pairs of the world's land animals and birds to Noah, and then miraculously redistributed them around the world after...
  4. Notes: Exodus 16:28 To Leviticus 10

    *Exodus 16:28 / *Ex. 16:28 - Note that this does not require that God had commanded any special behavior on every sabbath before the time of Exodus 16. For right before Exodus 16:28, God had commanded through Moses that the people not try to gather manna on the sabbath (Exodus 16:25-26). But some people went ahead and tried to anyway (Exodus 16:27). -- *Exodus 16:36 / *Ex. 16:36 - An "ephah" (H0374) would fill a five-gallon jar. -- *Exodus 17:14 / *Ex. 17:14 - See Deuteronomy 25:17...
  5. Notes: Leviticus 11 To Numbers 12

    *Leviticus 11 / *Lev. 11 - (Re: Dietary laws / *Health) It is sometimes claimed that we should not eat animals which were "unclean" under the letter of the Old Covenant Mosaic law (Leviticus 11) because they are detrimental to health. But where does it say that they were "unclean" because they are detrimental to health? Even pork is not detrimental to health when it is cooked properly. That is why there are so many healthy old people in China, a nation which thrives on properly-cooked...
  6. Notes: Numbers 12 (cont'd) To Joshua 15:7

    (Re: What about *transgenderism?) In reality, there is no such thing as transgenderism, just as there is no such thing as transracialism. As an example, imagine that a white man walks into an all-black, inner-city neighborhood, and is surrounded by some black men. "What are you doing here, cracker?" "I'm not a cracker. I'm a proud black man." "No, you aren't. Look at your face. You're a white man." "My face doesn't matter. What matters is I identify as black. So I am black." "No, you...
  7. Notes: Joshua 15:8 To 1 Samuel 28:13

    *Joshua 15:8 / *Josh. 15:8 - (Re: Valley of *Hinnom / *Gehenna) "Hinnom" is the name of the person after whose son the "valley of the son of Hinnom", on the south side of Jerusalem, was named (Joshua 15:8). At the destruction of Jerusalem by Babylon in 586 BC, in the time of the prophet Jeremiah, this valley became representative of God's awful judgment, as it was where masses of dead bodies were cast unburied to rot out in the open for all to see (Jeremiah 7:32-34). Decades later, after...
  8. Notes: 1 Samuel 28:14 To 2 Kings 16:9

    *1 Samuel 28:14 / *1 Sam. 28:14 - The original Hebrew word (me`iyl: H4598) translated as "mantle" can mean a "robe" (1 Samuel 24:4,11; 1 Samuel 18:4; 2 Samuel 13:18). -- *1 Samuel 28:15-19 / *1 Sam. 28:15 - Just as what Samuel prophesied to Saul came to pass (1 Samuel 28:15-19; 1 Samuel 31:1-7), so the Third Secret of Fatima and the Akita prophecy could come to pass. (See the "Fatima" section of Revelation 13:11 below) -- *2 Samuel 2:16 / *2 Sam. 2:16 - "Helkath-hazzurim" (H2521) is...
  9. Notes: 2 Kings 16:10 To Job 33:21

    *2 Kings 16:10-16 / *2 Kin. 16:10 - (Re: Was not this, like what King Manasseh did, an abomination of desolation like what the future Antichrist will do?) 2 Kings 16:10-16 refers to King Ahaz replacing the original altar of Solomon's temple with another altar of a pagan design as the place where the Old Covenant Mosaic law animal sacrifices would be offered in front of the temple, with Ahaz reserving the original altar as the place where he would make inquiries to YHWH (2 Kings 16:15c)....
  10. Notes: Job 33:22 To Psalms 8:3

    *Job 33:22 - (Re: The *Bottomless Pit) In Job 33:22 the original Hebrew word (shachath: H7845) translated as "the grave" can mean "the pit" (Job 33:28,30), as in the extremely-deep pit which is in hell/sheol (Isaiah 14:15, Psalms 30:3, Job 11:8). In the sides of this pit are the graves of the conscious souls of the unsaved dead (Isaiah 14:15,9-10, Ezekiel 32:21-23), who experience pain there (Psalms 116:3). This pit is in the "nether" (the lowermost, Hebrew: tachtiy, H8482) parts of the...
  11. Notes: Psalms 8:3 (cont'd) To Psalms 37:20

    (Re: Some people say that aliens created humans) The existence of aliens would not require that they, instead of YHWH God, created humans on the earth. For YHWH God Himself could have directly created both humans on the earth and aliens on other planets (cf. John 1:3). Also, if someone were to claim that aliens created Adam (the forbear of all presently-existing humans on the earth) instead of YHWH God creating Adam, that claim would be false. For it would contradict the Bible's teaching...
  12. Notes: Psalms 37:20 (cont'd) To Psalms 90:8

    (Re: Consume away = annihilation?) In Psalms 37:20 the original Hebrew word (kalah: H3615) translated as "consume" and "consume away" does not require annihilation. For the same Hebrew word is used elsewhere to refer to eyes merely "failing with longing" (Deuteronomy 28:32), not eyes being annihilated. Similarly, the same Hebrew word is used to refer to the Amalekites being "consumed" by the Israelites (1 Samuel 15:18), in the sense of their bodies being killed, not annihilated, just as the...
  13. Notes: Psalms 90:9 To Proverbs 16:9

    *Psalms 90:9 / *Ps. 90:9 - The original Hebrew word (hegeh: H1899) translated as "tale" can mean "sigh", or "mourning" (Ezekiel 2:10b). So the Hebrew phrase translated as: "we spend our years as a tale" (Psalms 90:9b) can mean: "our whole life is like a sigh of mourning". But this is the case only if we are non-Christians and so are under God's wrath (Psalms 90:9a; 1 Thessalonians 5:9, John 3:36). For once we become Christians, we can spend the rest of our lives "applying our hearts unto...
  14. Notes: Proverbs 16:9 (cont'd) To Ecclesiastes 11:4

    (Re: Means that there is no free will?) Proverbs 16:9, Proverbs 19:21, and Proverbs 20:24 are not contradicting that we have free will and so can wrongly make and perform plans against the counsel (advice) of God. For if we could not do that, then we could not sin. For God never counsels (advises) us to commit sin. Neither do these verses mean that no matter what we plan to do, God has us in His grip like macabre meat puppets, mere marionettes who have no control over ourselves, and no idea...
  15. Notes: Ecclesiastes 11:5 To Isaiah 7

    *Ecclesiastes 11:5 / *Eccl. 11:5 - (*Spirit) What science today is missing, in its search for a "Theory of Everything" which can unify all of the physical forces in the universe, is spirit. So by continuing to exclude the whole idea of spirit, science can never hope to understand the universe at its most fundamental level, or what its ultimate origin was: "As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit . . . even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all" (Ecclesiastes 11:5)....
