: : : : : : : : : "One can often recognize herd animals by their tendency to carry bibles." -- Allen Wheelis in "The Signal" : : : : : : : : : - : : : : : : : : : "No, I suggest that creationism is imposed on the Bible. By making it into a religious issue, the proponents have latched on to the only constituency that would put up with it. Where do the ideas come from? From that well-known source, fear of the new. Why else is it so impoverished of ideas?" -- Tom Scharle : : : : : : : : : - : : : : : : : : : "I'm not sure, but He seems to be inordinately fond of beetles." -- J.B.S. Haldane responding to the question, "What has the study of biology taught you about the Creator Dr. Haldane?"
: : : : : : : : : "If evolution is outlawed only outlaws will evolve." -- Daniel A. Ashlock
: : : : : : : : "Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me." Ps. 42 vs. 7 : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : : : : : : : This is good. I like it. Here's a couple more.
: : : : : : : : : : : : : : "I think that the next time that I see some creationist point out that the present species could evolve from a few 'kinds' on the Ark, I am : : : : : : : going to point out that that is impossible because of the 'second law of thermodynamics'". -- Tom Scharle
: : : : : : : "We want to shear the Lord's sheep of their wooly, fuzzy thinking, not stampede them. So we can't use chainsaws." -- Max G. Webb
: : : : : : : This could get interesting, but I'm not so sure about the chainsaw part....yet.
: : : : : : One only has to contemplate the magnitude of this task to concede that the spontaneous generation of a living organism is impossible. Yet we are here as a result, I beleive, of spontaneous generation. Nobel Laureate G. Wald I like a man of faith......
: : : : : : : : : : The most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible. -- Einstein
: : : : : Evidently, God not only plays dice but plays blind-folded, and, at times, throws them where you can't see them. -- Hawking
: : : : : I can't think of anything that expands the mind more than thoughts of God. -- Jim Loucks
: : : : : and then...
: : : : : I can't think of anything that expands the mind more than revising one's assumptions in the light of evidence. -- Chris Lee
: : : : : Faith is fine for contemplating what you don't understand. Trying to make it fit the way you want things to be is blind faith however. The first brings wisdom, the second propagates ignorance. - Valkyrie
: : : : I liked the last quote best Val. You would disagree that it would apply to Mr. G. Wald? your friend bzrd:)
: : : : : : No, I wouldn't disagree at all. I'm a person of faith myself. God gave us all common sense. Unfortunately, some of us toss it when the learning process gets a little difficult. To me, clinging to the ideas of the past, especially when they've been proven wrong, is just mental laziness.
: : : Anyone that thinks God has revealed all His truths to us long ago does not do Him justice. God isn't ignorant, people are.
: : : Thank you for asking.
: : I would say that God has revealed all His laws in the bible. His truths are here for us to discern. O Lord, how manifold are thy works! In wisdom hast thou made them all; the earth is full of thy riches.
: : I do believe in the truth of what you say here but I also believe He has wonders yet to be revealed.
: Us Valkyries were given the task of escorting the Heros to Valahala but we were also given the burden of choosing just who the next heros would be to die in the cause for rightiousness.
: I'd say you'd do very well. Wanna volunteer?
: I make a new quote: God warned us that his thoughts are higher than our thoughts as far as the heavens are above the earth, and that he has chosen the simple things to confound the wise and the things that are not to bring down the things that are and also told us to lean not to our own understanding (knowing we only use about 10% of our brain, Einstein ...maybe a little more)and that His wisdom and knowledge are infinite and ours finite and that no flesh...(as long as we are in the flesh) will never have clear understanding of His universe...("ever learning and never being able to come to the knowledge of the truth, being wise they became as fools and worshipped things made rather than the maker") Until were changed into the incorruptible man. Not knowing that the earth was created to exist eternally some say billions of years ago..inhabited by angelic creatures ruled by lucifer..then- a cherubim (being the only types of creatures that could live among dinosaurs) having great strength and having great powers of mind and spirit. But, when Lucifer tried to exalt his throne above God.....he was cast down as lighting to the earth with his followers and as a tremendous comet that caused havoc upon the earth..destroying everything on the earth, including the dinosaurs, and the earth was covered with deep fathoms of water...(where we picked up in Genesis 1...In the beginning...God created the heavens and the earth.....space of time...and the earth was without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep.......then began the new creation..the remake of the world as we know it....Lucifer..(named Satan after his down fall) was in the Garden of eden when Adam was created...God knew the fall would come...the only one that could fix this mess up in the universe was himself...coming on the earth as a man.Messiah ..and going to hell to defeat Satan on his own ground and going back up to the throne and mediate for humanity....and eventually destroy all this mess and create a new one and do away with Satan and all his followers..once and for all...He's proving to the universe He is not a tyrant God like Satan accuses him of...and that His way is the only way that exists for humanity and this array of planets that also were destroyed (surface) because Satan at one time ruled over all these planets in this system and never gave God the credit and praise for it...he became proud and arrogant and power mad...he forgot where his authority came from...uh my quote is "Dinosaurs didn't rule the earth"
