If God created the universe less than 10,000 years ago, we would not be able to see stars because the light would not reach us until the very distant future. That is, of course, unless he created the universe with light beams billions of light years away already reaching the Earth. Creating a new universe … More Stars in Genesis – Another Point Against Creationism…
I have been listening to Richard Dawkins’ audiobooks (The God Delusion and The Greatest Show on Earth) lately, and he brings up an interesting point about Creationism. He quoted someone – I’m sorry I cannot remember who – making the point that Creationists believe the world is less than 10,000 years old – many believe … More Interesting 5-minute theory against Creationism
This is always said about people healed of invisible maladies, such as cancer, mental diseases, heart problems, or other sicknesses. Why does God never re-grow a lost limb? Why is it that people KNOW that once they lose an arm, they will never get it back and that praying for it would seem stupid and absurd – … More God – Heal Me!
Angie made a great point on one of her comments that I can’t believe I hadn’t thought of – there are people on this Earth that have suffered far more than Jesus on the cross. Prisoners of War, AIDS victims, slaves, torture victims, and cancer patients have all suffered far more than a few hours of agony. When … More Jesus’ Minor Suffering
There is no way you can read the New Testament and not think of Jesus as a separate entity from God and the Holy Spirit. Jesus demonstrates this fact himself, and believes it himself, through his prayers and dialogue with the father (“Father, why have you forsaken me?” or the prayer in the garden of … More Christianity is Polytheistic
When is comes to every other God in the history of humanity, Christians are atheists. Christians do not believe in a single Native American God, Egyptian God, the Muslim prophet, any of their writings, etc. So, with the exception of the Christian God and Jesus, Christians are atheists regarding every other god in the history … More All Christians Are Atheists
Let’s say I were a Christian, but my kids were not. How could I possibly enjoy heaven with the knowledge that my children were burning in hell in endless suffering? I would resent God and wouldn’t want to be with him in heaven because of his lack of mercy. How could I want to stay in heaven? Or … More Enjoy Heaven?
Apparently, Jesus’ own family – the very people who should know better than anyone else that he was born of the virgin Mary, lived a life without sin, was the Messiah, etc. – did not believe him to be the son of God. Moreover, they thought he was crazy. Here are two verses that made me tilt … More Jesus’ Own Family Did Not Believe In Him
If you believe the creation story as written in the book of Genesis, answer this one question: If Adam and Even only had sons, how did the human race survive?
I don’t think people would believe the Bible to be true if it were written recently, say, within the last 50, 100, or even 300 years. I think part of the “majesty,” “holiness,” and “profundity” of the Bible is the fact that it was written a few thousand years ago. People can argue that the age … More Would anyone believe the Bible if it were written recently?
