What possible difference can it make to anybody?
Death is total in every generation. It matters not
how many scientific discoveries we make. God has put a limit on man's days.

Is "voice" depressed?

"The brain is a lot more than a bunch of choanoflagellates."

Cheer up!

Yes, I know what the brain is and no I am not depressed. I am a realist. Why do men imagine such vanity? Why do they think they can unravel the makings of the universe? God is only going to let the human race go so far and then the Master is going to say,"It's quittin time." This life would be far better spent if we live to serve the creator rather than to expose His secrets and inflate our egos.

Really? Then tell us what it is because we don't know what the brain is.

Do you ever get sick? Do you then want a cure? Do you not seek medical help that is based on science?

God himself has revealed medical cures for the benefit of mankind, but He rarely gets the credit.
In all of it's efforts to make God a liar, science has proven the opposite. There is a creator and He alone is worthy of worship. Without Him, we can do nothing.

Your brain is encapsulated within your skull.And within it's folds is something that touches something that touches something that is connected to the SOUL. Do you know that the life of the flesh is the blood? Chemotherapy drugs do not cross the blood brain barrier. But they do destroy the elements of the blood. That is why millions of people have died "cancer free". The Chemo killed them because it killed the blood. Science is far from perfect and if a few scientist would pray, I bet God would reveal a cure for cancer. Society would not be in the horrible shape it is in if people would humble themselves and PRAY to the only God who hears and answers prayer, Jesus Christ.

If you have any evidence to what you're asserting, present it here.

Today is Sept8,2011. Please read the WTVD investigative report about flawed clinical trials at Duke and a pending law suit.Just one example of why people need Jesus Christ in their lives. Science is flawed because people are flawed. When something good and true comes from the scientific world it is because God himself overrode circumstances and gave it as a gift to the human race.
