quote:
“The Flat Earth Society is an active organization currently led by a Virginian man named Daniel Shenton. Though Shenton believes in evolution and global warming, he and his hundreds, if not thousands, of followers worldwide also believe that the Earth is a disc that you can fall off of.”

Doesn't that tell you something? They can believe something as ludicrously stupid as a flat earth but they STILL can't believe something as ludicrously stupid as creationism.

If you absolutely know something is the truth revealed by God, it can't be anti-science to treat it as the known truth.


That's the definition of anti-science. Putting truth revealed by God ahead of science is anti-science. Pitting truth revealed by God against science is anti-science. Why can't you just be content with being anti-science?

Sorry, the Bible was written by human beings UNDER THE INSPIRATION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. That's what makes it God's word.


And your understanding of it is still filtered by your "fallen" intellect.

You can't have it both ways. No matter how TRUE the Bible is, your discernment of its truth is no better than anybody else's.

As I keep saying, the ability to believe the Bible is the word of God is a supernatural gift from God that overrides the fallen intellect.


But of course the intellect is not "fallen". Adam and Eve gained the ability to discern good from evil and true from false.

So there is nothing to be overridden.
