1. I understand the basic dichotomy between the Mitochondrial Eve and the Eve in the Bible. I'm merely focusing on the similarity. The production of the human population originating from one woman. Where this woman resided, or whether or not humans existed before the Mitochondrial Eve is beside my point.1. <quoted text>
Then you had better study up on MA and who she was, etc.(Hint: the name is SARDONIC). It turns out MA is more proof AGAINST the idea of two first humans.
What, if anything, is a Mitochondrial Eve?
2. Any educated, thinking person SHOULD discard it. We know from MULTIPLE sources and measurements that the earth is 4.65 BILLION years old.
3. Both IMPOSSIBLE and NEVER HAPPENED according to the vast geological evidence, etc. So says modern science.
4. God's existence couldn't be a part of science and the scientific method unless such existence could be measured empirically. So we would probably still have the dichotomy between religion and science.
5. If I found out today, it would likely be because God had decided to become naturally-measureable for once.
6. <quoted text>
So people's innate knowledge and life experience that in real life dead people do not come back to life is irrelevant to whether nonbelievers should drop their skepticism and accept the resurrection stories?
2. Like what?
3. Key phrase: "So says modern science". However, that's not quite accurate. It should read: "So says modern scientists". Or better yet: "So says the 'majority' of modern scientists". Not all 'scientists' make that claim.
4. I'm not talking about the God in relation to science and the scientific method. If God reveals Himself to an individual, what effect will that have on his/her view of evolution? There's no rule that state's that if God reveals Himself, His revealing has to involve the ability to 'measure' His existence empirically. If God reveals Himself to any scientists,'any' scientist, without allowing for scientific measurement, how will that effect his/her view of evolution? From what I can tell, it effects it quite a bit.
5. What makes you think God cannot reveal Himself to you without being exposed to scientific measurement?
6. The Bible doesn't claim that your average human comes back to life. In the Bible's 4,000 year span, very few are recorded to have 'divinely' come back to life.
However, there are humans in the modern world who were close to burial before coming back to life. And some have attested to Biblical references of the afterlife.
