Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

The biggest factor: there are a lot more people on the planet these days because of science.

It came as a result of science. Mankind’s advances in science.
It looks like this science you Atheist worship has fallen short of expectations on a global level.

Sex seems involved as well.

Doing Time in the Coffee Shop

Thirty five years ago I met a man in the coffee shop.
He told me that he had been coming here for thirty five years.
I smiled at him and said really?
That was my first time.
Thirty five years later I am still here in the coffee shop.
Today I spoke to a young man.
I told him I had been coming here for thirty five years.
He smiled at me and said really?
This was his first time.

Be specific with the passage. What is inconsistent?
That the universe came into existence initially the earth and stars were not formed?
That the three most common elements in the universe are hydrogen, helium and oxygen?
In fact, in your article they are surprised Creationists DON'T jump on the band wagon!
Keep asking those questions your Bible doesn't.

"This early soup would have been impossible to look at, because light could not carry inside of it. "The free electrons would have caused light (photons) to scatter the way sunlight scatters from the water droplets in clouds," NASA stated. Over time, however, the free electrons met up with nuclei and created neutral atoms. This allowed light to shine through about 380,000 years after the Big Bang."
That hardly conflicts with the very next verses that follow, "darkness was over the surface of the deep..."
Genesis 1:3-5 (NASB)
3 Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.
4 God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness.
5 God called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.
Limited understanding is expressed in the Genesis passage.

Expanded understanding is expressed in modern times.

That IS what Christianity teaches. Nothing at all then God creates. It is a description, not an explanation of the beginning.
Correction - an opinion of a description.

A person cannot describe an occurrence first-hand, if in fact the event occurred 1.4B years in the past. The person describing is just taking a guess.

They teach vagueness?

Of course they do.

How can you be a new age spiritual leader if there no followers. Do you indeed have devotees or disciples?:)
One does not need disciples or followers in order to lead. Many people stand up for what they believe, and sometime in the future - people realize what they heard is true and worth a look.

It doesn't mean one is a follower now, does it.

If you were to step outside the box to understand the words you read, the meanings would be better understood.

Thank you for taking the time to read and comment.
In psychology there this disorder called a Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Among your displays of the Dunning–Kruger effect. I also think you may have Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
What a wonderful specimen you would make at the local University that teaches clinical psychology. It’s really a shame some graduate student couldn’t study your mind. I honestly think you would make a wonderful subject for psychologist explore.
Just think of the contribution you could make to the science of psychology. And the thousands of people that could benefit from you being studied. It’s probably not that often they could interview someone that thinks so highly of themselves as you do.
I think you should consider donating your mind to the bettering of mankind. If you would let them study you. They may come up with a viable treatment for individuals such as yourself. And give them the skills they need to fit into society.

Who said anything about the Bible asking questions?

Why are you trying to shift the issue?

Dumbfounded again?

The Bible isn't intended as a detailed dissertation on Creation. The fact that you agree it gives an impressive condensed description is a concession of its supernatural origin. Something you clearly have given up on explaining.

A legal opinion?

May I suggest you write the United States Congress and have them write your official opinion into law.

I don’t think they will act on your behalf. They will see your opinion as radically extreme when compared to the general population.

Because the medical community as a whole views artificial insemination as a wonderfully accepted medical practice. And not a criminal violation as you vainly presume.

You asked the questions. I suggest you should continue to ask the questions the Bible doesn't answer.

Please take a little time reading - you are missing words or changing them up to read something different.

Christianity has been notorious for this type of tactic. Bart Ehrman's "Misquoting Jesus" explains four theological changes because of changed words.

I don't agree with it. I think it is vague, lacking and just an unfounded description.
