Re: The verse in question
So let me sum up your argument, If part of one verse in the Bible can be shown to be consistent with modern science there can be no conflict between religion and science.

Would you like to explain how the conclusion follows from the evidence ?

And a further question. Given that in this case knowledge of science is required for the "proper" understanding of the verse, would you extend that principle to deal with the apparent conflicts between religion and science that do exist ?

I am showing that the Bible does have some points that can be scientifically backed up.


Even if this were true - and you really haven't picked a very good example - it wouldn't even be good evidence that there is no conflcit between science and religion. And that was the point you claimed to be addressing.

quote:

For people like you, that is very bad news because you wont accept that He does exist without proof.

So your God doesn't like people who care about truth. It's certainly apparent that this is not a problem for you.

quote:

So I have done my job and told you that He does exist. You are not my responsibility. Your blood is on your own hands now. I have done what I needed to do - that is it.

So if we won't unquestionally beleive everything you say it's our fault. Your God's got a pretty twisted morality. You'd better hope that there isn't a just and good God up there - because if there is you'll be in bigger trouble than the people you drive away from Christianity.

Re: Pick and choose

How can it be my fault if you choose not to believe what I say?

It's your fault for expecting that level of belief.

It's your fault for undermining your own credibility with your arrogant and ignorant approach.

Why would it be my fault ?

quote:

I already told you

Why don't you come out and say what you really mean ? What entitles you to be uncritically believed ? Tell me !

quote:

I went off topic on that so I'm going to veer back now. I suggest that you do the same.

I note that you ignored the on-topic part of my post.

Re: Re-Science and Bible
quote:

When did man discover that life was in the blood?

To the extent that that is true (and it certainly isn't literally true) they probably discovered it as soon as they saw a human or animal die of blood loss. Probably long before recorded history.
