I will explain it again. The shift from OT to NT has to do with no longer be under Mosaic Law for salvation. So anything to do with OT law doesn't apply to Christians today.....
The OT Laws never applied to anyone except Hebrews. Even the Kews admit that.

You did understand what both Serah and HFN meant though...I am sure that you did...I would hope.
HFY...we are all not as educated as you. That does not mean that we are idiots...some of us are fairly intelligent based on that IQ scale...some maybe higher than others.
While some of us might not have that education level...no college degrees...no PHDs...no dissertations to write...etc...etc...does not me that we don't have other valuable skills...I will leave you to figure out what those might be.
My son has an extremely high IQ...my daughter not so much. She has other skills though that my son lacks...both set of skills contribute to the world that we live in.
I rarely respond to your posts...personally...I find the way that you treat people when they don't live up to your intellect rather arrogant and demeaning...as in the way that you treated HFN because she didn't word things properly for you. I am not a huge fan of Serahs but still...there is no reason to respond to her as if she is less than you.
How is the way that you speak to them...any better than how they speak to you?
Oh well...I am sure this post will win me no popularity votes but as I have said...what people think of me on this site does not affect the way I live my life.
One piece of advice that I gave my son...you can be of the highest intelligence and no one will listen when you treat them less than yourself. There is always someone that knows more than you.
Education comes from all walks of life - from traveling to reading to being a parent. How the person reflects on their experiences, not the teaching they have received, is what produces the intellect. No amount of formal education is going to make someone brilliant, thoughtful or interesting. Experience is the greatest teacher, reflection and reflexivity the greatest tools of the learner.

HFN chose to use the word "baby" so she could link abortion to murder. Let's be honest about that.

Serah constantly makes authoritative pronunciations on subjects she doesn't understand while telling me I'm an idiot, not a scientist, not good enough to know better, etc. So you'll pardon me if I respond in kind. Now I've criticized Serah for her lack of education only because she continues to misrepresent science - and she does so because she doesn't know anything about science. I've never criticized HFN for the same because HFN doesn't make such pretenses. She either speaks of some opinion she has or some wisdom she has to share.

I always begin posting politely. When the demeaning comment comes, as it always does, it's returned.

Don't let IQ scores determine the outcome of your children. Sure, it's nice to be told you did well on what many consider to be an intelligence test, but it's not all that.

Wow. Soon the entire year will be devoted to Christmas! Then it will become Western culture - you'll all be worshiping the baby Santa by the Holy Tree!

You did exactly what I predicted you would. You presented your theories and passed them off as facts.
It's your belief system, Hiding. I don't have to follow it.
Please explain how DNA is theory.

You are confusing evidence with theory. I suspect you don't know how science uses theory, despite having been told many times, nor what evidence is.

People like Hiding, an academic, Catcher, a successful attorney, and I are used to deference in our areas of expertise. We come to Topix and encounter these Christian baboons and their arrogant insolence in our fields of expertise.....
I throw my hat in that ring as well. I find the abuse and ignorance of the historical and anthropological sciences to be degrading.

Then there is that "education is a joke" attitude of the willfully ignorant that is an insult to all mankind.

I think you misunderstand.
It's the "At least a few of them must have" thing that is an opinion, a belief for some.
There is no evidence of that, outside of Hollywood.
I see it as a belief.
A belief I agree with...
As I wrote, it's a prediction. I suppose you could argue that I have belief in our current theoretical frameworks that make those predictions. I'd have to point out that if the way in which I think of theoretical frameworks is not dogmatic - the theories can change with new evidence and through hypothesis testing.
