One important difference between faith and technology? One of these can be brought to it's knees by a single EMP pulse. Think on that for a moment.

The modern definition of ‘racist’ is someone who’s winning an argument with a liberal.

There is no shortage of youtube videos all over the internet, on every subject from God, to the War in the middle east, most of which are not even worthy of watching. As if we have not seen a million of carefully crafted videos, all led the viewer down some primrose path of thinking.

I didn't mean to suggest otherwise, or that I want/expect "God" to fight my battles and do my homework for me.

Another video attacking W. Craig's arguments.

For starters, objects don't all necessarily have a beginning. The big bang is not necessarily the beginning of reality.

The God predicted by the cosmological argument wouldn't necessarily be the Biblical God.

I watched the first video, up to about 6:30 seconds (where the lady was attempting to teach the child world views). I believe the biggest problem with ANY belief system or view (atheistic, agnostic, etc...) is this "line in the sand" mentality.

Forcing one's own interpretation of Genesis on a child and claiming emphatically that the Earth cannot be millions of years old because it goes against God is utterly wrong. You are tellling that child that they cannot believe in God and an old Earth filled with dinosaurs. Emphatic, "my way or the highway" thinking hurts everyone.

Jumping to any conclusion either way is the opposite of what the Bible teaches. Learning about our universe, God and ourselves is totally encouraged throughout the NT. While "young Earth" christians are out there espousing their views, it is equally true that "old Earth" christians are also in existence and sharing their views as well.

The examples shown in the first video demonstrate why christians are viewed the way we are. Too many out there see these examples, and use that same stick to judge all of us by.

Personally, I believe in an old Earth. As do many christians. I don't see a problem with some things in evolution and christianity. I certainly do not believe we started as fish, came out of the ocean, became ape men, then changed into homo sapiens. If we truly have all of those mutations in us, then why don't scientists believe in the possibility of humans shape shifting into these kinds of animals? if those mutations exist within us, maybe there exists a process in nature that makes that plausible. Yet, not one scientists believes we can change into any other living creature on the planet.

I personally don't believe we can shape shift into anything, but then again, I don't believe we have those mutations in us to begin with.

Dawkins thinks belief in God is an excuse to evade thinking in the scientific world. Sadly, he is ignorant to the list of christian scientists who have contributed & founded many of the sciences he himself believes in. How ironic.

Good post, SJ.

Here's another video. This time it makes light of those with non-Christian beliefs.

From what I hear, Bob Larson is quite a jerk....Never encountered him myself though.
