    Archer Opterix for lyricism
    Message 30

    Archer is short and very sweet. A plea for removing the blinders and letting the light shine. It is truly a wonderful world.

    Archer Opterix - Storytelling Basics
    Author: Archer Opterix
    Forum: Bible Study
    Thread: In the Center of the Garden (Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil and the Tree of Life)
    Message #: 68, 71, 72, and 73.

    Excellent explanations on the basics of storytelling and enjoyable to read. :)
    This would make a nice article for future reference.

    Well done!

    Percy on Michael Behe at "How can Biologists believe in the ToE?"
    Author: Percy
    Forum: Is It Science?
    Thread: How can Biologists believe in the ToE?
    Message: 100

    I knew that Michael Behe is an old Earth evolutionist, but prior to Percy's message my best documentation of such was via Kenneth Miller's Finding Darwin's God (plug for topic I started). Percy points out that Behe said much the same in his own book, Darwin's Black Box.

    Percy includes the quote to trot out when a YEC starts trumpeting the position of Behe.

    Also some other stuff there.

    Doddy on micro vs macro systems.
    Doddy does a great job blowing away the old "my truck won't build itself" canard.

    This analogy falls over, because macroscopic systems don't compare with microscopic ones. Your truck parts won't be floating around your garage, bumping into one another, but biological molecules will.

    Jar for a very good example
    Message 143

    Jar points out what a good example of how science works the periodic table is. I hadn't noticed that before.

    Ned, you beat me to it.

    I was going to nominate jar for the exact same thing.

    Thanks, jar!

    Thank you sir. Now we will wait and see what evolves in the spin off thread.

    Thank you. It will be interesting to see if someone can show the predictive value of either ID or Biblical Creationism in the spin off thread.

    Not a POTM type message!
    I would like to nominate God for his post called the Bible. It's relevant every month. And always the best seller. And for coming into the world and making Himself, the subject of highest interest of supporters and detractors alike.

    Everyone's talking about Him. What a bright morning star!

    The rest of us are a little too full of ourselves.

    ;)

    Considering how much of the bible was cribbed from older religions, I think we'd have to disqualify it for plagiarism. Nice try though, Rob!

    Subbie:

    No no no Subbie... it only means that it was always the original story. God and His Word always was the original story. You and your brothers in arms have always tried to twist it and kill it; both conceptually and incarnately. But the Word keeps being resurrected!

    Thanks for making the point!

    We're going to get in trouble... :laugh:
