Ok, are you some kind of financial advisor or accountant? Again, lets duke it out on semantics.
If you fund something...you are expecting those funds to produce some kind of asset or service. The creation of that asset or service is a service rendered, even if it isn't rendered to you directly. Therefore, funding is paying for services rendered.
You can keep playing with words, or we can get down to the meat of the topic.
You are such a joke.

Paying him fir eorks of art are NOT funding his research.

Are you really that ignorant and/or stupid?

Or is this just the christer Holey pokey?

According to fossil evidence, the story is incorrect.
No scientific method can prove the age of the earth and the universe, and that includes the ones we have listed here. Although age indicators are called “clocks” they aren’t, because all ages result from calculations that necessarily involve making assumptions about the past. Always the starting time of the “clock” has to be assumed as well as the way in which the speed of the clock has varied over time. Further, it has to be assumed that the clock was never disturbed.

There is no independent natural clock against which those assumptions can be tested. For example, the amount of cratering on the moon, based on currently observed cratering rates, would suggest that the moon is quite old. However, to draw this conclusion we have to assume that the rate of cratering has been the same in the past as it is now. And there are now good reasons for thinking that it might have been quite intense in the past, in which case the craters do not indicate an old age at all (see below).

No scientific method can prove the age of the earth or the universe.

Have you ever really "seen" a ufo?...or had any experience with it at all?
If you haven't, who the hell are you to tell anyone who has?
You are nobody in that dimension or reality. An asshole who is talking through themself.
Do not even compare it to "gods" and "goddess". You are completely out of your element here.
By all means relate all your experience in relation to this subject.
You are a bufoon.
Not to be butting in to your discussion but the prophet Ezekiel saw a """ufo" "" and he describes it in pretty great detail in the 1st Chapter of Ezekiel. He describes seeing God aboard a mother ship with accompanying ships along with it.

Most of my Christian brethren read the 1st chapter of Ezekiel and are clueless as to what Ezekiel was describing.

"Action," as explained to New Age:
-Faith
-Repentance
-Baptism
-Reception of the Holy Ghost
-Enduring (keeping God's commandments, obeying what the Holy Ghost prompts you to do)
I know there is a lot implied in these words, so if you want me to drill down on any of these, just ask.
-God bless ya
You are simply imposing the prerequisites of your relighin on actuality is all.

All that nonsense about the holy-ones being saved and other evil wicked ones burning in hell ... gave me chills that anyone would want to believe such nonsense.

Even as a child I couldn't be mentally seduced by such obnoxious dogmas.

The god of my imagination had to be nice to everyone, and that is why I created my own religious beliefs that stuck with me for so many years.

When you can prove UFOs exist, then I will believe you.
Until then ... I won't.
Your rhetoric is no more believe-able to me than the rhetoric of those who brag of having a personal relationship with deities.
UFO'S do indeed exist and Ezekiel described seeing one in the first chapter of Ezekiel. Read the following....

http://www.theseason.org/ezekiel/ezekiel1.htm

UFO'S are indeed used by the spiritual realm. Gods technology is far greater than the technology that man uses hense hense the UFO'S.

There is much I could say on this topic but it would only having you guys shaking your heads.

Sorry - Tabor also posits that this is why he was killed, so their would not be an overthrown to the regions "rightful king". He even suggests that James and John - both were killed because they were kinship to Jesus.
If he would make the assumption that Thomas was his twin, then I might consider it...but so fer ...no.

The problem is that the "Bing Bang" has tons of evidence to support it. The steeay state universe is proven wrong and the Bible story is a joke.
Wat happened prior to the big bang is best explained by a quantuum fluctuation in an infinite vacuum. IE: The Universe came from nothing. That something can indeed come from nothing an observeable and well documented reality.
"That something can indeed come from nothing an observeable and well documented reality."

Horseship.....Only God can and did Create the universe from nothing...

You have got to have a material of some sort for any explosion to occur....so, starting with, as you say, an infinite vacuum, I would have to believe that these materials magically came into being...

What utter stupidity!!!!!

Ok, you tell me. I'm arrogant and I need to be enlightened.
Least we get caught up on semantics again I'll pose the same question to you several different ways and you pick which one you want to answer: How can man be saved? How is it that man can transcend his fallen and wretched state and enter the realm of glory where God and Jesus Christ dwell? How can we enable God to save our souls from the torments of hell fire? What is stopping God from beaming us up right now into His holy habitation?
You have no clue of how to find the Kingdom do you?
Jesus told you ...go and find it...read everything Jesus ever said...it is there....else, I can not help you any more.

I see. I must apologize for what many of my Christian family teaches from the Bible. Much that they teach is erroneous for they are of little understanding in much that they think the Bible says. There is no one burning in hell and hell is our common grave. There is nothing anyone can do in this life,in the short time we are on this earth to have God be so mean and vicious as to deposit their souls in a burning tormenting hell for all eternity simply for not accdepting and believing in Him. That they teach that God would do is yet another scripture that they have misunderstood and taken totally out of context. It is yet another of the many lies that God gets told on Him by the religious community that are of little understanding of much of the scriptures. Again I apologize for them. They mean well though.

He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

hell:
The abode of condemned souls and devils in some religions; the place of eternal punishment for the wicked after death, presided over by Satan. A state of separation from God; exclusion from God's presence.

This is a good verse for the unbelievers here, from Gif's post.

The prerequist of being a member of 'the True Church of God', which what this topic board is about,...

Is that He God sent His One and Only Son Jesus to save us from this evil world and bring us to everlasting life with our Creator Him, a personal relationship with HIM.

Same plan for All who believe.

HIS PLAN.
