    I'd say for the most part this is what's wrong with politics. There are too many politicians who don't really give a **** about improving the country, or their state, city, district, what have you. It's all about doing whatever it takes to get elected & all the things that come with it; it's all egomaniacal bull****. There are a few Ron Paul's that are few are far between, but for the most part it's all sociopaths & egomaniacs.

    & That doesn't just go for Romney.

    This is the **** that makes me want to agree with Joe Rogan about how politicians should be required to do mushrooms.

But I'm glad he has such a high opinion of who he thinks are Obama's base...

    I just had a chance to stick my head in there. Yikes what a dumpster fire that thread is. I think I'll stay out of it.

    If any of you want to hear my thoughts on creationism and what not, just ask me in this thread. I'll be happy to share.
    Insert pithy saying here.

    Meh. Lou probably doesnt even have a syllogism proving God. Not sure why we'd want to hear what he has to say when we have great theological minds like Statler to listen to.

Thats not completely a joke, it wouldnt surprise me if he was just making it up as he goes. Was hoping the video's would be more entertaining. No doubt Obama is going to jump all over it to futher suggest Romney is out of touch, but the entire thing had no surpises.

    Only interested in it if it involves lots of profanity and insults to us heathens. After Statler we're not interested in calm, rational, thought provoking discussions. We need our fix.

    Preface:

    I'm a life long Christian. I grew up in the Assemblies of God church. I now attend, and have for several years, a non-denominational "mega" church as they're called. For those of you reading this that think religion is a load of crap, that's fine. You are free to believe how you see fit and I don't see me changing your mind. Just like you're not going to change my mind. Live and let live, cool?

    I have a natural love of science and science fiction and am well versed on a number of physical science subjects. Life sciences...not so much, but a little bit.


    Creationism:

    Creationism is theology, it's not science theory. I am perfectly fine, as a Christian, not having it taught in science class. It simply doesn't belong there. Evolution is a science theory and belongs in science class textbooks with all of the other theories. I have no problem with it being taught, I believe in evolution myself. Charles Darwin was a lifelong devout man of God, he just said "things change". There's nothing in his theories that contradict anything in the Bible. Modern science has taken his work and turned it into the modern cross species evolution that we see today. That is what contradicts the Bible.


    Young vs. Old Earth Creationism:

    I'm an old Earth creationist. I'm not going begrudge young Earth creationist (YEC), they are free to believe how they see fit. The problem is see most often with YEC is that they concentrate so much on trying to prove their beliefs that they miss the greater meaning of God creating the Earth. In the end it doesn't matter if God created the Earth in 6 days or 6 billion years. The fact of the matter is God created it out of love. That's all that really matters.

    I don't prescribe to YEC because the Bible simply does not say how old the Earth is. The Old Testament is basically a written history of the oral Jewish history. There are many lessons to be learn in the OT but not really many "rules" per se to live by in our modern lives. The Ten Commandments could be considered an exception to that, but really the Ten Commandments are basic moral truths. Basically don't lie, cheat, steal, or murder. Most humans live by those things to varying degrees. The Book of Proverbs has many great lessons in it; a lot of common sense stuff and you don't even have to be religious to understand them or implement them.

    At this same time you simply cannot dismiss the rigorously tested methods of science. Science and religion are more alike that many people give credit. Both of them only want the truth. I think of science as the understanding the way that God does or did something. Its been hashed over, especially in that thread, that there is no proving or disproving the existence of God. Basically only God and prove or disprove himself. The findings of science in relation to the age of the Earth and the Universe are tested and stand up to the test. If the Bible doesn't say exactly how old the Earth is then it can't really be counted on to be the final say on that subject.

    I think YEC waste a lot of time and resources defending a position that in the grand scheme of things doesn't matter. My salvation through Jesus doesn't depend on how long I think it really took God to create all that we know. I think about the Creation Museum about an hour from my house and I think what a waste of money. The money it cost to build and maintain it could be put to much better use caring for the sick, elderly, and poor. That's what Jesus commanded, along with spreading the word.

    I think that about covers it. I may have left a few thoughts out, I'm kinda tired (I stayed up too late last night watching the Falcons - Broncos game).

    If any of you have any questions about how I feel, as a Christian, about certain subjects then ask away. I'll do my best to make my answers clear and concise. Just keep the name calling and ridicule to a minimum.
