    So you're aspiring to impress me by resorting to the same tactics?
    Please! :doh:If you've got a grudge against me keep it off the board and repent.

    Also, I noticed you liked the sarcasm when it was you doing it....and insults are to your liking as well. :)

    Both of you need to take your quarrel somewhere else please. You are both guests here!

    Ladies, please, everyone is entitled to their own opinions on this. As it is not a matter of Messianic doctrine I as the OP welcome your opinions, but please don't take after each other because you don't agree, ok? please?

    Thank you. :)

    As I said before there are many, many things outside our realm of knowledge that I believe that one day, those who love G-d and worship him in the best way we can, by following his guidance on how to do so, will be given all this knowledge of things we either didn't need to know about or were too outside our understanding at the time to be able to deal with.

    I think science has discovered that the capacity of holding knowledge of the human brain is barely used, only about 10% I think they say, so what of that other 90%? What did G-d make that for? I think our brain, which I realize the flesh part of it doesn't go into the afterlife with us but the memory banks do will be filled with this knowledge that day.

    I picture it in a childlike manner of us, sitting before the throne while the L-RD tells these stories to his children while they sit in awe of him even more-so than before!

    That 10% thing is a myth, from long before MRI's.
    BBC - Future - Health - Do we only use 10% of our brains?

    This wasn't a scientific post, I was sharing.

    But since you want to only make everything I post into a debate, your link as well as one I looked up at the Smithsonian is not exactly based on a belief in a Creator, so I take it for what it's worth and where it's coming from.

    BBC - It is true that nature can sometimes involve some strange designs, but to evolve to have a brain ten times the size we needed would seem very odd, when its large dimensions are so costly to our survival, leading on occasion to obstructed labour and the death of a mother during childbirth if no help is available.

    Smithsonian - Evolutionarily, it would make no sense to carry around surplus brain tissue.

    I have to make a correction when someone posts myths as facts. The 10% myth is right up there with the appendix and tonsils are leftovers from evolution. I'm surprised you would have a problem with either source, as evolution is the only reason to believe in an old earth, or the gap theory.

    I did not post a myth as a fact. And when it comes to studying the human body, there really are no hard and true facts, let alone in how our brain functions compelety because there are too many variables to consider.

    While they make hypothesis about our brain, no one understands it fully nor can they begin to understand when they believe we come from a 'soup' and were not 'fearfully and wonderfully made'.


    And that you got from that website, by evolutionists. And what is a myth? something not true, or something not proven? It used to be a myth that the earth was flat and many more. We shouldn't be so arrogant to think we've got G-d and his creation all figured out, for that is prideful and pride goeth before a fall.

    No it is not, I get my reason to believe this from the Bible and from my own eyes. I don't need scientists to tell me anything.

    I am dropping this because we are getting too far from the OP. As I said, I was just correcting a myth. If you want a creationist source, here is one:
    Our brain: Do we use only a small portion of it?
