LOL, oh well, no I didn't do it right. Sorry. It was about evolution.
I know this isn't an evolution forum but when the subject comes up it is a quick way to see who can actually have a scientific, evidence based discussion and who cannot. Rosez is an example of someone who is so fixed in her beliefs that she literally cannot engage in a logical discussion. And that shows in all of her posts.

The answer to all of history and the future is in John 3:16. And for context ..the verses near it. FOR God so loved the world ..He gave His only begotten Son ...that we may not perish. All of the Old testament prophecies tell of tge Messiah. Isaih speaks of His suffering. He was given the only perfdct sacrifice for sin..fully human but fully divine.
The answers to your evolution theory however can be found in Genesis.a lot easier to believe than we once were a burst of energy...then crawled out of the sea....became chimps or whatever ..and then became men. God breathed life into the first man..new tests I read somewhere show we all have common mitichondral
DNA..Humans do that is. ITcame from Eve the created woman.
We did not evolve from chimps. We came from a "common ancestor" which also explains why we share so much of the same DNA with other species. Also, skeletal remains clearly indicate that there were earlier versions of humans.

As for Genesis...that would mean we had our origins from incest, and would be horrible mutants by now since we all came from the same familial gene pool that started with just 2 people.

Can you try to form a coherent argument for once? You seem to think that the reason women are getting pregnant is wanton rampant hooking-up and no interest in contraception. You seem to be unable to grasp that there are areas in this country, as well as in the rest of the developed world, where religious puritanical beliefs about sex are almost non-existent. In those areas, contraceptive use is very high and unwanted pregnancies are very rare. Look in the mirror. People like you, the churches you support, and the politicians you elect are the primary reason so many young girls get pregnant. You thwart sex-education at every opportunity. You oppose free, readily available contraception for teens or low-income women. You deny science, which encourages your children to think whatever they believe is as valid as anything else. You do everything you can to make visiting a PP clinic as inconvenient as possible and then shriek that women aren't using enough contraception.

Planned Parenthood would prefer to see literally no abortions take place; they would much rather see 100% use of contraception. Women would much rather not get pregnant in the first place than have an abortion. They would like easy access to inexpensive, long-term methods such as IUDs.

But your head is so far up you know where that you cannot see that your efforts are in direct opposition to what you claim you want. Not only are you the worst enemy to young women at risk, you are your own worst enemy. American taliban.

I would suggest the gospels in all 4 perhaps. I've been told it is a view from 4 different angles.
One tells two of my favorite words in the bible "and peter"
After Jesus Christ rose from the dead -the message was clear to those who found the empty tomb. go tell the disiples AND PETER that HE HAS RISEN!!
Peter was a disiple, so why would they point him out special?
If you've read -you would know peter had just turned his back on his Lord and Savior "I can relate", BUT that Never took his Savior by surprize.
Peter was feeling about as low as a person could, and THAT IS WHY Jesus wanted him to know all was well! I for one am very thankful.
Those who know not God, or not known of God, are not tested.
Only His children are tested, and that is only to help us, not to make us quailify for Heaven.
We are quailfied "justified " the very momment we are "truly born again "
The last words the lost hear from a Holy God -depart ye workers of iniquity FOR I NEVER KNEW YOU.
plus it may never make sense, there's nothing about spiritual things that make much sense to the carnal mind.
I don't know how a black cow eats green grass, and gives off white milk, but it happens everyday.
If science shows the answer, and they do -great, but they should stick to what they KNOW, not what they BELIEVE -THAT'S When it becomes faith.
"We are quailfied "justified " the very momment we are "truly born again "

Are you of the belief that even the most devout Jewish Rabbi will not gain admittance to Heaven?

I do fight that issue, thinking in the wrong frame of mind. I should never be ok with abortion, BUT if there was never another abortion EVER, and only married people had sex, staying together till death, and no more bad movie, everyone went to church every time the doors were open, and everyone was kind, and the countries crime rate went to zero. The government did all they could THE RIGHT WAY. people would still be dying and going to Hell.
Our best days are as filthy rags in His sight.
He is only impressed with what His Son has done, and those who have accepted Him.:)
Jesus Christ truly saves.
Ps. Try an experiment is you will -if you know you don't know God, try and watch an hour or two of Dr. Hovinds theory. Watch how uncomfortable you may get. Maybe keep a paper, and write down how your mind wanders, how many times you get up to "do " anything. That's the same for watching anything or reading anything about God.
There are spirits working around you, that will try anything to gain peoples attention.
How many times I've seen this myself.:)
And why would God allow good people to go to Hell? Do you believe God would be so petty as to punish good people simply for not believing in Jesus? It just makes no sense.

Its not faith in faith.
Its not even a warm fuzzy feeling, which can be a nice bonus, notice most people have some type of spiritual side.
I've met those who said they were closest to god when they were on cocaine or other mind altering drugs -they probably was :)
If you spin around over and over chanting any name -you might get all kinds of spiritual, but it is something the flesh works up -not from God in most cases.
When the flood ended all on board knew God, throughout time many left, which is no shocker.
Oriental people are the most spiritual folks on the planet, and they may have many many gods.
Science is good.
Faith science is not.

Not at all. But is extraordinarily rare for someone to be an expert in a scientific discipline without the advanced degrees that go along with substantial, focused education. Would you let "Dr" Hovind perform brain surgery on you just because he is smart?

One, that is false. You said "any public school kids" meaning that you have the knowledge that a few rug rats in your trailer park are smarter than any public school kid anywhere. Interesting claim. Two, that is irrelevant to the discussion.

Whenever science says "we believe " thus and thus happened long ago and far away, then that's faith honey no matter how you stack it :)
But scientists don't say "we believe'. They say "Based on the observed evidence and extensive testing we have concluded that the theory of evolution by natural selection is the best explanation for the fact of evolution". On, evolution didn't just happen 'long ago and far away', is happens every day.

Answers in Genesis? LOL This proves that you are bat s**t crazy. Why would you ignore all of the scientific evidence and go to a fundamentalist christian site that claims to disprove evolution? You've already made up your tiny little mind and are simply looking for something that makes you think you actually can justify your conclusion.

If you are serious for the answer.. none of us is good..God told the Chosen people for his message and it included sacrificing to pay for sins..Jesus was the only possible perfect sacrifice.the only way to cleanse us from our sins..he had no sin until the Cross when all of our sin was imputed to Him..this is why He cried out Father why have you forsaken me..For THe first time since eternity He was separated from the Father..HE BECAME THE EMBODIMENT OF EVERY WICKED ACT EVER TO BE COMMITTED..this was the true sacrifice . He was a man of sorrows who was prophesied to pay for our iniquities. HEcame to teach and be sacrificed.. there was no villain except evil..no people killed Him. They put Him to death..but he never fought it Because it was the plan..

And before He died He said IT IS FINISHED..the price had been paid for mans sin..the lamb was slain..

And then He rose on the third day..to show that we to will live after deatH

Each of us will be judged according to Gods justice.

YOU asked. And I realize a lot of you do not believe..but many of his followers died for professing this truth..why??? Unless it wss the truth.

There have been people causing hate in His name..even here I have seen it in words.... Jesus never professed hate nor wanted vengeance for His death..It was His will that He die and he forgave those killing Him.

And to answer another poster..I may seem illogical in my beliefs..but they ard thru faith not logic..

Many of us GO THRU LIFE WITH A HOLE IN OUR SPIRITS OUR HEARTS....IT IS A GOD SIZED HOLE..that only He can fill..

Rose, abortion has not divided this country. There are only a few who think it should be stopped. The vast majority of people do NOT want legal abortion stopped. MOST people realize that women have ALWAYS had abortions. They also know they WILL always have abortions. You then have the option of safe abortions in clean clinics where no women die OR unskilled butchers that prey on desperate women where women die.
Which do YOU choose??
At least half of my friends and associates are anti-choice, personally. We all respect each other's opinions. There is no disconnect or divide.

By the way if you want to know how lunatic your argument is that PP would rather perform abortions than provide contraception, you would have to make the same arguments that:

Dentists are opposed to flossing and tooth brushing since they make so much more money from dental surgery.
Cardiologists are opposed to exercise and low-fat diets because they make so much more money from heart surgery.
Brain surgeons are opposed to bike helmets, ski helmets, etc. because they make so much more money from brain surgery.

The only way? So your god is not omnipotent. He was powerless to stop sin and the only thing available to him was killing his own kid?
rosesz wrote:
<...this is why He cried out Father why have you forsaken me..For THe first time since eternity He was separated from the Father..
So your god killed his son, which was also killing himself, which wasn't actually killing because he is still alive? The mind boggles.

So by that logic, Allah is the true god because why would so many followers of Allah die for him unless it was the truth.

The number is high however, you do have to keep in mind that the yearly rate of live birth is way higher than the yearly rate of abortion. That means more women give birth than abort.

You also have to keep in mind that PP's aren't located everywhere and even then so, you can promote all the birth control you want but you can't force anyone to use it.

Another thing to keep in mind is that not every PP performs abortion. Considering that abortion is not paid for by government funds, as it's prohibited to use government funds for abortions, all of their government funding goes to everything else. And like I said before, you cannot force people to utilize birth control.

I really don't think women *want* to have an abortion however, you can't force them to use birth control nor can you stop them from having a repeat abortion. I don't know what the solution is to all that is but it does seem that education is working slowly, but surely, as the abortion rate is decreasing. I think a lot of that has to do with comprehensive sex education, the availability of MAP and the fact that some pharmacies are offering some prescription contraceptives at an affordable price.

And they would still have access to a lot of women and make money and get government support if all they did was provide contraception and other family planning services. What evidence, not your pathetic opinion but actual evidence, that PP wants more abortions?

No it is completely logical, But since most of us live in the real world instead of christian candyland, people will forget to use contraception, contraception will fail, rapes will occur, genetic defects will occur, and personal situations will change. So abortion, no matter how hard we try to eliminate it, will always occur.
