Infidel?

Umm... try the Koran not the Bible. The word isn't found in the bible because we don't beleive in things such as infidels.

I don't know much about geology. So yeah I guess just because I don't understand a topic automaticly makes you right.

"so I don't have to answer any geological inconsistencies in my belief"

Show me the post where I said this.

Should I be open minded to Natizism? or maybe Socialism? how about being opened minded about being racest against Black people? or can I be opened minded about Terrorists?

Well after all you must be opened minded to the possiblities to all of these things. When you said this "I think it is the best goal to have an open mind in all situations (not neccesarily accept all possibilities as likely or true, but at least POSSIBLE.)" Of course you won't accept any of them, but by your own admission they are possible. I don't think that they are possible at all.

Tolerance as told by dictionary.com

1.The capacity for or the practice of recognizing and respecting the beliefs or practices of others.

Your deffinition of tolerance: "If you are truly tolerant of someone, you must also be accepting of them."

I can respect and recognize the beliefs of someone with out having to accept them. That is acceptance not tolerance.

"Because he takes the Bible with a grain of salt, he is lazy in his faith? Come on. He is simply smart enough not to take it so literally. Because he disagrees with you on the Bible's nature does not make him dishonest or lazy in the least. And you claim to be tolerant."

He said him self that he was a laid back Christain. I also respect the fact that he can be that and I also recognize that he is. Thus I'm tolerant.

Me:"Science changes all the time, but the bible doesn't."

You:"Yeah, neither does Greek myth, so what?"

The bible isn't Greek Myth, It has been proven true countless times with archeoligical information and other types. So there is no comparison.

"maybe there is some Unknown Principle that lets light travel faster" or "the light from distant stars may have been created en route."

Let me say this frist of all. Right now I admit that I don't have an answer about the light thing. Exccept I believe in what the Bible says. So I admit that right now creationist have no way to disprove the evolutionists theory on the travel of light. Right now my faith is my answer I beleive that God could have created it midway. I have no answer. How ever if this was the only issue than I would grant you that you were right about creation vs the universe being billions of years old. Let just get small and only focus on the solar system right now since you have betten me on the age thing right now. Why do 2 planets spin backwards? Shouldn't the rings of Saturn have dissappeared millions of years ago? That is all I have right now. Can we discuss this? Thank you.

Aaron, if you use arguments like this to defend yourself, can't you see that you will NEVER take any evidence as evidence of your incorrectness?

Question why do you quote the answers I gave in which I said maybe or I don't know. That about how 1/100th of all my answers. Just look back.

"Bringing out you inner Inquisitor?" Umm.. I'm not Catholic, my domination never attacked anyone. Assemblies of God is my domination and we have and always will be peaceful. That is unless somebody comes along and corrupts my faith just like the did Catholism.

Wow no wailing or nashing. Oh well prehaps another day. I wish we would stop attacking others beliefs and dicussed them with out name calling. I know I guilty fo this on many occassions I just wish it wasn't this way. I hope I can remain Christ like and I hope we all will.

God Bless,
-Aaron
