    All I heard was white noise. I don't understand why people are so obtuse on this subject.

    Evolution just proves to me how MUCH of a creator God IS. You can't evolve life itself without first being an artist, a story teller, a creator, and a genius all in one.

    If you're in the creationism mindset, then you're just seeing God as a two dimensional shape in my view, and NOT the awesome creator He truly is.

    Embrace science, and believe in magic - then apply both to your faith and enjoy life. Don't try so hard to squeeze into a compartment on this subject, we already have enough of that with politics.

    The Big Problem with the debate... and why many Christians lost the authority to set the standards for society,,,, is that Christians (too many of them) think that it pleases God to stand on irrationality and call it pleasing to God.

    Even though we understand that faith will seem irrational to the unbeliever , faith, when properly understood by the believer is rational and will be sound and consistent in the face of the facts that can be seen. Faith is never irrational to those skilled in the Scriptures. Only to the unbeliever.

    The reason the cosmos has taken over the narrative within the media is because of the ignorance and stubbornness on the part of Christians. Christians who think unbelievers can not understand their irrational ideas they espouse, assume its because the unbeliever is unregenerate. Believing that, it would take the Spirit for the evolutionist to believe in young earth creationism. Young earth creationism is filled with inconsistencies.

    The irrational reasoning stems from the assumption - "If God says it! I believe it!" Then assuming that kind of stand pleases God (when they do not understands what God says). Pleasing God, because? They are willing to look irrational before unbelievers, when what they think is faith is in fact not truth, and is in fact irrational in the face of what is known. Its irrationality defying facts that can not be denied by the unbeliever's intelligence with integrity. The devil could not be happier by making a Christian feel wise and faithful to God, when in fact they do not know the Word yet as they could and should.

    The problem for many in mainstream Christianity has been? They do not know what God has actually said.

    They only know what some ambiguous and deficient translation is telling them. The Spirit only honors truth with His power. Not, misguided good intentions. Only then His Word will not come back void.

    Dinosaurs where not created in Genesis One as young earth creationists contend. For, just as we are now awaiting a new heavens and a new earth after what we now know is gone? As we are promised in God's Word? So it was, when the prehistoric worlds were destroyed and replaced by our new heavens and earth.

    Its been a major a failure on the part of sincere believers to gain knowledge of God's Word to see the over all picture of how God operates in history.

    Believers who tell an evolutionist that dinosaurs were a part of this creation? And then went extinct? Actually makes the evolutionist humanly righteous in his unwillingness to accept it. For, the evolutionists maintains his integrity when he refuses to believe the young earth creation narrative. It also gives him the liberty to make up stuff to explain his position with a wide open berth. Ideas with which to form a mutual admiration society amongst themselves.

    Here is why Evolution theory is free to take over the narrative, and not having to face an effective refutation with facts and truth that explains what they have been working with. Its why we keep getting horrible people in placed authority by God as punishment in the land we live in.

    "My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.
    “Because you have rejected knowledge,
    I also reject you as my priests;
    because you have ignored the law of your God,
    I also will ignore your children."
    Hos 4:6

    Ignorance of what the Word actually tells us is the reason why our alleged "faith" has been in vain.

    Faith can only have power granted by God when its based upon sound doctrine. Too many as adults continue to believe what little children were taught in Sunday school. Maintaining it as a common ground for their means for unity to be getting along with one another. Yet, it has been our downfall.

    A large part of the blame rests upon the shoulders of pastors who refuse think outside of the conformity "feel good" box theology we have been socially conditioned for.

    This world we live in was not the first creation to grace the face of this earth. To shut ones eyes to what the Bible tells us about previous creations is to invite the destruction of our national sanity. And, young earth creationism is only one teaching that is symptomatic of the non analytical ways of many churches. Many truths are being missed and substituted for to our national demise.

    We are in trouble because we brought it on ourselves.

    Our ignorance is the Devil's best friend.

    in Christ.......

    I'm very much a believer in the pre Adam creation theory. It fits the Genesis account of creation and fits the character of God. It is compatible with geology.

    I've never been able to believe evolution, even before I was saved. I was taught it at school.I was also taught creation as an alternative view. That's no longer possible. The unscientific Christian view has been replaced with the unscientific world view of evolution. And yes, Christians have themselves to thank for this problem.

    Maybe if you were not so closed minded you would learn something. The video speaks for itself. Any commentary I made would be superfluous

    Adam was given dominion over the earth in this creation.

    Likewise.. the angels were given dominion over their prehistoric earth.

    Lucifer did not like taking orders from the Lord. He formed the first labor union as he recruited angels who felt the same way because their pride was hurt by being under the Lord's authority.

    grace and peace........

    Video is amazing at brainwashing people.

    Perhaps you can answer the question that every "expert" could not.

    Perhaps. But you would have to at least ask it first.
    That's the benefit of text. You can examine it.

    Giving an alternative view? Given from the perspective of the one giving it, is brainwashing? How can we ever learn critical thinking otherwise?

    Brainwashing is when alternative views are censored (cancel culture).

    I've put it, and seen others put it that, all that creationists will succeed in doing by convincing me the bible isn't compatible with evolution is make me no longer a Christian. I've seen too much evidence for evolution, and too much evidence to me for god, so only choice is to accept both.

    Oh COME ON, not a good start to use, "The banana was made by god for the hand to be eaten." ray comfort as your talking point heh. This is the same guy that made a fool of himself, and then when called out on it lied about what he said in a video heh.

    Hmmmm 1st one, uses the useless term kind, lies/is wrong about the nature of science. You don't have to repeat or observe the event, just the tests that you did to determine it. We don't have to have seen a volcano errupt 4 million years ago to know it did, just repeat the tests that showed that it happened, look for corroborating evidence heh. Also, saying they are still fish is like saying, "Rats to humans isn't evolution were still mammals." Same thing with bacteria, bacteria is a even worse example as bacteria is such a massive umbrella area for things as different as we are from fish and such.

    God is not an artist, artist work and work over their creation with many changes (not every time) but more than not, part of the artist creating process. As their vision develops of the final outcome.

    God creates and there it is completely perfectly finished/complete.

    God is a creator not and artist.

    God is the PERFECT artist! Man is an imperfect artist striving to become closer to God .. at least in his appreciation for the artistry of God. The human artist if he is of sound sound soul, is held in awe of the artistry that the Lord can do. After all.. God created the artist in His image, too!

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    God creates. Fascinates the artist's mind and soul. And, then says to him.. "paint that!.. Study all that went into the design. Be amazed!"

    And, ENJOY LIFE! Knowing I am God who creates beauty!
