  1. It's called deductive reasoning. There's a saying, "big things start small." Who is to say that life didn't begin with a split cell? We have evidence than viruses or bacteria can evolve. So, it isn't so unremarkable to believe bigger things can evolve from small, simple things, too. There's also a school of thought that since time doesn't conform to a deity as does humans, one could create a micro-organism, knowing it could evolve into something bigger later, taking centuries rather than days. Men couldn't fathom that much time when the Bible was written. By that reasoning, all other religions can't be wrong, either, as you believe them to be.
  2. That's another point. Why would science even try to prove there's a God? Besides, even if they were, they'd start with what He has left here for us. Kind of like backward engineering something alien to understand how it works, which is what scientist do all the time on everything else. Hence, all the peer review and testing to prove, debunk, or deem plausible.
  3. Not so. We see evolution in viruses and bacteria becoming vaccine resistant, and transforming into newer strains. If all men came from one couple, then why so many races? Perhaps we share many elements of our DNA with other life because of a "common ancestor"? Seems a plausible theory. Also, how does unobservable become plausible? It remains theory only, and cannot be continually tested as science can and is always.
  4. There is a bit of similarity between creationism and evolution. Both theories encompass how man was formed from dirt. 😁
  5. Good for you. Wish you well on whatever your plans turn out to be. Peace and blessings.
  6. Hello. Welcome. Hope you are in good health, as well.
  7. Welcome. Interesting line of ministering. Not everyone can be up to that task, yet I'm glad there are some like you. Blessings and Peace to you.
  8. Phone and computer apps aren't only ways to find people and where they may be. Already in existence are cameras everywhere, now coupled with facial recognition. Soon, mayhap, will also be hidden mics everywhere with voice recognition, too?
  9. Nay. The weakness is that it can be removed.
  10. Trust me. When Jonathan gets knives out sharp, you'll know.
  11. I am no lawyer, but here is my opinion. (Not a lawyer. You really should best place this question to one.) Reverend, yes. Doctor is another bit of a quagmire. It is generally better to not place upon driver's license or identification cards unless one is a legal licensed medical practitioner, usually accredited as such. Which excludes honorary degrees. Upon other legal documents, it may be deemed fine, as long as the title is also followed by a couple of letters designating it as honorary. I forget how it is supposed to go as I don't use my titles at all, myself. I think something like Dr. Soandso, PhD. a.h. (I'm probably wrong on those letters. But am sure another here will correct me. 😉) You should, however, consult with a lawyer familiar with the laws in your area to be sure.
  12. Actually, another speculation other than "missionaries", could be scouts. Afterall, to come this far, there may not be anything left for them on their homeworld, or it may no longer exist. So, another planet to colonize. They just see us as ants in the park. And killing us from space, may just ruin the atmosphere for them.
  13. No evidence that we know of, as yet, of light speed propulsion/technology. What an alien race did accomplish it? Perhaps they have evaded our discovering them for various reasons, some as I stated before. Maybe they even have there own code like Star Trek's "prime directive", where they merely observe without contaminating primitive societies with their advanced influence. Just saying.
  14. Who's to say they haven't tried contact before but decided not to engage us after observing? They may have been appalled by our aggressiveness, susceptibility to selfishness, etc. For them to even have the tech to travel such great distances would require them to have the exact opposite behavior, even as a predatory species, I think. Or they could have deemed us unworthy of their attention for interaction, possibly as unequal to them both technologically and possibly intellectually.
  15. They might like the sweetness and texture of Rocky Road better.
  16. Part of the reason for it, most of those products have a small print disclaimer on them that state "any claims of product not validated or approved by FDA", or something such. So as to insulate themselves from any false advertising suits.
  17. Only legal as long as it isn't making invalid claims, (even by implication in some areas).
  18. Not really. There are a great deal more assortments of instruments that can be learned other than the piano.
  19. True, it isn't funny. 😉 If it works, and has clinical backing, even FDA approval, to prove what it does, then, yes, it is medicine and should be displayed and sold as such.
  20. I only wish I hadn't been away while this thread unfolded. I, too, can attest to RevBogovac's character from personal interaction here. He is a knowledgeable and level headed individual with a quick wit. From what I read, he was not intending to call you a liar, but was rather intending a bit of humor. (Which he also later explained.) Rather than accept this, you continued to feel offended and attack him. Perhaps his humor was misguided, simply because neither of you are acquainted. But your continued dismissal of the intention has been equally misguided, IMO. Now, as this is an open forum for anyone to post upon anyone else's comments, it is everyone's business of what is being read. Thus, your command for someone to avoid your posts and comments was a bit out of line. How else does one get to know others unless by interactions, good and bad? Just saying.
  21. While I wouldn't completely dismiss homeopathic remedies, I also don't think they should be sold or displayed next to more legitimate medicines. Nor would I endorse them as medical cures unless there are clinical proof of it.
  22. Well, that is certainly a twist. Now, I'm hoping Walmart will lose their case.
  23. While snake oil and sugar pills are, indeed, scams, the mind, itself, is a pretty powerful thing to be able to fool someone into getting better. Just saying.
