I normally don't participate in prophecy threads because it's simply not within my interest. I just wanted to quickly pointed out something that I've been talking about for years.
Scientific minded people, or at least those who are skeptics, police their own ranks. If I were to come out and say "all christians are murderers and rapists", no doubt among my biggest critics will be my fellow skeptics.
On the other hand, let me quote ICDesign in this thread.
2 Peter 2:1 ....there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies.... and bring upon themselves swift destruction. Colossians 2:8 Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.
Hebrews 13:9 Do not be carried about with various and strange doctrines.
Ephesians 4:14 ...we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of of doctrine, by the trickery of men by craftiness in deceitful scheming...
2Timothy 3:16 ALL SCRIPTURE IS INSPIRED BY GOD and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness...
Matthew 24:35 Jesus said: Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
So guess what jar? Long after you are dead and gone and your big mouth has been silenced, the Word of God will still be marching on as it has from day one and will continue to do till the final day. The bible is by far the number one selling book in all of history and by far the most loved and the most read of any book ever written.
Nothing you will ever say or do will put even the slightest dent in the unchangeable truth of THE WORD OF GOD
This is pretty much "lalala I can't hear you" dressed in biblical quotes. Through the 7 pages of this thread, I have only seen skeptics criticism of ICDesign's behavior. IDists and Creationists, where art thou?
By staying silent, the sensible IDists and creationists seem to encourage the more extreme, crackpot elements within their ranks to prosper.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who have made this observation over the years.
