    Judge Moore ... the pedophile ???

    How did Science have anything to do with the "persecution" of Judge Moore ?

    Your reaching is becoming destructive to your argument, I'm afraid ...

    I disagree. Science is an investigation of reality. If the Bible is true when it says reality is proof of the work of God (see Romans 1:20, Psalm 19:1-3, Acts 14:15-17, et al), then surely you must conclude that an unbiased investigation of reality will point to God.

    Actually, the Bible makes it quite clear that until they ate from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, they had no concept of being good or being bad. Thus they could not understand that it was bad to eat from the tree.

    That is empiricalism used against God's commandment.
    Then you need a new username.
    Here we go.

    First you said:
    And when I give one, you suddenly broaden the focus.

    Do you want to address my point about what occurred in the Garden of Eden?

    Because I'm not going to do a country-by-country walk through history with you.

    It STARTED in the Garden of Eden, fueled by empirical science.

    This is blatant spinning ... not really even worthy of consideration.

    You, as well as I, KNOW that the heart of ORIGINAL and ONGOING sin is the HEART of man (i.e. nothing from the OUTSIDE) ...

    Matthew 25:18-20

    " ... For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander. These are what defile a person. ...”

    I think it is better to keep the Ten Commandments (i.e. keep your hands off of young girls) ... rather than to display them ...

    No, it isn't.

    It has no universal tenets that must be followed. It has no holy book that must be interpreted. Atheism is the answer to a single question: "Do you believe there are any gods?" If the answer to that question is a definitive "no" you are an atheist. Anything else you believe are your own personal beliefs and, while they may be informed by your atheism no particular belief is a requirement other than your belief about the non-existence of gods. There are atheists who believe in UFOs, Big Foot, Eastern medicine, cupping, ghosts... There's nothing about atheism that requires you to be consistent in your non-belief because there are no tenets.

    It is a form of worship, according to the Bible.

    Romans 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    But, it isn't. Why should I care what your holy book says or how you interpret it?

    Worship, whether of "the creature" or anything else, is not a part of atheism.

    "The creature," in this case, is creation (a.k.a., the universe).

    It is enounced: cree-ay-chur -- not: cree-chur.

    No it doesn't. No more than your future depends on what is written in the Bhagavad Gita.

    You are correct. My point still stands: atheists do not worship the universe.

    Bad so called fraudulent phony so called science is that which uses preconceptions and beliefs to hatch God opposing truth.

    The error is that it is a bunch of beliefs and attitude and making stuff up to fit their godless contrived paradigm. To call that science is error.

    The proof is in the pudding. One can read the fables and stories and claims of false science and compare them with what the Almighty said! If they agreed, rather than directly contradict and oppose Scripture, well we would not suspect some different inspiration!

    As for actual science of the real world that is easy to look at also. Put the good things on one side of a paper and the bad things on the other side. Then try and determine if one side or the other is stronger or weaker. Next, express an opinion, if overall, you think science (including the false so called origin sciences) are good or bad overall.

    In respect to what is worshiped or prominent in PEOPLE'S eyes, science is front and center these days. (not to God, of course, to Whom it is foolishness)

    Science represents knowledge. There were wise learned mean all through history and they used their magic or knowledge to fight God, as we saw in Egypt. Babylon had it's wise men, and Rome had considerable accumulated knowledge, technology (weapons, road building, etc). The New Testament talks of people who thought they made themselves wise but were fools.

    Enough. There is flaming. This thread is closed.


    From the Statement of Purpose for this forum:

    Physical & Life Sciences Statement of Purpose

    The Physical & Life Sciences forum is a discussion and debate area on physics, biology, chemistry and other physical sciences. Other physical sciences may include but is not limited to astronomy, earth science, archeology, climate change, ecology, geology, oceanography and energy.

    Physical Sciences address the nature and properties of non-living systems while life sciences address the nature and properties of living matter. This may include the way two or more of these have an effect on each other between observation, theory, deduction and application.


    It is not a forum to flame science, Christianity, or to discuss Judge Moore.
