76  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Gentlemen, this year my Spurs shall have their redemption! on: April 28, 2014, 05:28:10 PM
 i would like to see a Spurs/Heat championship because its old school vs new school.

crisp fundamentals vs. raw athleticism.

plus i just think the spurs would have the best chance against the heat.

Durant shrinks from the challenge when he plays Lebron, while Lebron  relishes the oppurtunity to prove why he is the best

Spurs have more discipline and are not easily intimidated

You raise an interesting point about causation i.e. correlation doesn't necessarily mean causation. However scientific research (or at least good, legitimate scientific research) uses specific study designs and mathematical analyses which aim to show causation. For example removing confounding elements.

Many studies don't show true causation between variables - but this is okay as long as it is flagged and noted. We can still learn and make predictions from observing correlations that occur naturally - the essence of science is in attempting to test these predictions and prove whether causation does occur. It is a difficult, tedious process and every question that is answered likely leads to many more questions.

But I don't see how you can say that we can't witness or prove causation (at least with reasonable certainty). If somebody punches a hole in the wall, the variable that caused the hole is the punch. That is causation.
the issue is ULTIMATE causation.

If this is what you believe then that's fine, but these are statements of belief, not of fact.  It's important not to confuse the two if you're going to hold conversations with people and not come off as a close minded zealot.  Surely you can see how someone might doubt the need to 'evoke' the supernatural in understanding physical phenomena?
I can understand why someone might think that zero minus 8 is zero. But that doesn't mean its true.

Now, what I said about metaphysics, thats just a FACT. Its not a belief. The fact is the only way to explain everything is to posit God. My belief is that God exists. See, it would also be logical to say that I believe things are unexplainable and that would not contradict the fact that the only explanation is God. I would just be choosing to believe that there is no explanation.

Now, heres the crux=  you can say this caused that, but what you mean is that you saw this precede that, causation is something you did not witness, something you cannot witness, but nonetheless you still have "this" (which preceded "that") to account for. What preceded this? And so forth. But yet, its irrelevant because all we can witness is effects, a mechanical sequence, the cause for the motion of sequence, that original and ultimate prime mover, that is something that even if we see an event without precedent we still cannot speak on for we have not witnessed it.

Causation, origin, metaphysics and the entire universe and every happening inside of it... ultimately, there is onle one possible explanation, which is GOD. Glory to God Smiley

so crack god open whats in him, how can you say god isn't made of other gods, you can never say, it's impossible to say you do is ignorant.
it appears you dont understand what the word God means. God is a name for our infinite, eternal, and omnipotent creator who is spirit.   Your question does not apply.

Hearing someone say that the know there is no explanation is odd, the self contradictory statement is lost on them.
I urge you to think about why that is
86  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: God did it - metabolism discovered OUTSIDE of the a cell on: April 27, 2014, 03:08:35 PM
It is in Gods great mercy that he allows for the development of medications to treat the illnesses which are a result of oursinfulness.  Because I tell you one thing, my faith alone isnt great enough to heal my body. And the Holy Spirit does not force things upon us.

Not that you would believe me, but I do try to keep Jesus in my thoughts 24/7...  

Not that you would even understand what any of this means... Because the message of the Cross ia foolishness to those who perish, but to those who are being saved it is the power of God
87  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: God did it - metabolism discovered OUTSIDE of the a cell on: April 27, 2014, 02:24:28 PM
Really, I am doing Atheists a favor by pointing this out. All you have to do is accept "Ok, the Universe is unexplainable. We can never explain origin or causation or anything regarding metaphysics or the emergence of consciousness. Everything just is"   ... and myself and all other people of faith could only say... "well, we have faith that things happen for a reason, and that  means we believe in God".

But you guys dont see whats right in front of your eyes. You  want to have your cake eat it too. You want to believe that things happen for a reason, but there is no reason for reason. You want to believe that things are explainable, but theres no explanation for why we can explain.  You see, but having eyes you do not see.

Now, all of this is outside of faith. Because when you step into Faith and you start to experience the Holy Spirit working miracles in your life, then you no longer care for science because the evidence is in front of your eyes.

I know I cant convince you to see the truth on my own, but I pray that God touches your heart and allows you to see it.

It's ok to simply say you believe.  It's a personal thing.  No need to back it up with odd metaphysical assertions.
my friend, my belief is grounded in logic. I came to God through  study of the history of philosophical debate on metaphysics.

The simple fact is the either we evoke the supernatural to explain the natural or we accept that the natural is inherently unexplainable.

This is not an odd assertions, but in fact it is this very same assertion that modern science is based upon.

shoe aficionado's don't wear "lebrons" or "jordans" or any of that wigger crap.

gym shoes belong in the gym.

adults wear appropriate footwear.
I dont think anyone here is talking about wearing these shoes to the office Cheesy

Creating a "chemical reaction" and then making the conclusion that this can form complex life is like striking a match and then saying you have a Windows XP operating system. There are quite a few jumps involved.
thats a good analogy = except its about infinitely more difficult to create life out of non-life than it is to create Windows XP from a lit match Cheesy

Well without getting into a deep discussion on quantum physics there have been several scientific breakthroughs in the last century explaining the mysteries of the universe and the cosmos. There is empirical evidence on how galaxies, planets and stars form. However I am not a physicist and don't feel comfortable in an in-depth discussion on the topic.

I am however a biologist and can tell you that there is very strong empirical evidence for the creation of life by natural means. The link to the paper at the start of this thread is one documented example that the building blocks of life - the foundation of cellular organisms, can be created from seemingly lifeless sources (minerals, ions, chemicals etc in the presence of energy in the form of heat). Furthermore, the continued presence and diversification of life on Earth can be explained by the theory of evolution.

I don't claim that we have an answer for everything - that would be arrogant. I do however see more reasonable solutions, backed up by theoretical and empirical evidence, as to how the universe and life was formed than to simply say that it is unexplainable and therefore must be supernatural i.e. created by a supreme being
  no. Its not that it is unexplainable and therefore must be supernatural, it is either it is unexplainable or it is supernatural. There are no other options. And God is the only possible answer.
92  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: God did it - metabolism discovered OUTSIDE of the a cell on: April 26, 2014, 05:01:00 PM
Speaking in a strictly faithless, only earthly logic based manner:

There is only one possible way to explain the natural, and that is to evoke the supernatural. 

Or you can accept the universe as inherently unexplainable. But people rarely do that, because they want to know something.
93  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: God did it - metabolism discovered OUTSIDE of the a cell on: April 26, 2014, 04:50:21 PM
It can happen in an instant, only if God commands it. But without him, nothing would ever happen. Nothing can ever happen.

I am reminded of the volcano experiments that so many kindergartens do for the children. Mixing two substances and watching the reaction.   Pretty cool stuff. Doesnt mean that rocks turn into rocket scientists tho.

Matthew 24:36-44 ESV

“But concerning that day and hour   no one knows, not even the angels of heaven,   nor the Son,  but the Father only.  For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.  For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark,  and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.  Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one left.  Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one left.  Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming.  But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into.  Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.




There is no rapture. It's not Biblical doctrine.

Sup Taylor, Hope you're doing well. Christ came to fulfill the sacrificial law. That's it. He stated himself, he came to not to change the law but to fulfill them. You're still supposed to follow the 10 Commandments and dietary law. Christians use this as an excuse to eat all that yummy stuff. They also celebrate Pagan Holidays, Easter, Christmas and others. The Bible says not to do this, yet here we are.
  Read the book of Hebrews. It addresses all of your concerns about transitioning from the Law to Grace. Salvation is by grace through faith. But if you want to follow those rules in Deuteronomy, cool. Just know that  its not required, and that the sum of all the law and all the prophets is to love your God with all your heart, with all you soul, and with all your mind; and to love your neighbor as yourself.

I will stick to my 9,300 years old sandals made from sagebrush bark and manufactured in Catlow Cave, Oregon.

9,000 years old, huh? And how exactly did they guesstimate that abomination of a number?

Matthew 15:1-2, 10-11, 15-20 ESV

Then Pharisees and scribes came to Jesus from Jerusalem and said, “Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat.” And he called the people to him and said to them, “Hear and understand:  it is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth; this defiles a person.”  But Peter said to him, “Explain the parable to us.” And he said, “Are you also still without understanding?  Do you not see that whatever goes into the mouth passes into the stomach and is expelled?  But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a person.  For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander.  These are what defile a person. But to eat with unwashed hands does not defile anyone.”

Acts 10:9-16 ESV

The next day, as they were on their journey and approaching the city, Peter went up on the housetop about the sixth hour to pray. And he became hungry and wanted something to eat, but while they were preparing it, he fell into a trance and saw the heavens opened and something like a great sheet descending, being let down by its four corners upon the earth. In it were all kinds of animals and reptiles and birds of the air. And there came a voice to him: “Rise, Peter; kill and eat.”  But Peter said, “By no means, Lord; for I have never eaten anything that is common or unclean.” And the voice came to him again a second time, “What God has made clean, do not call common.”  This happened three times, and the thing was taken up at once to heaven.


I'm having a real problem accepting American women and their multitude of moral, ethical and personality flaws. I know I'm not perfect by any means. But I do try to lead a righteous lifestyle. And I follow dietary laws of Bible (no pork, no seafood without scales, no non-split hove animal with doesn't chew its cud) and most importantly following the Ten Commandmen




ts. Nothing unreasonable.

Perhaps it's because I'm older and tolerate much less than I would 10 years ago, but it seems as of over the last year, I'll date and leave a woman really fast if it doesn't go my way. I find this to be a troubling trend. I don't think what I'm asking for is unreasonable, perhaps I need to hang out in Churches? It's getting quiet frustrating and I'm starting to feel guilty about it. Yes, I am a beautiful man with glasses. I've always been able to get 8s and up (except when I went through my fat, depressed stage). But it is no longer just about looks. I must be able to tolerate living with this woman. She must live by the same principles, she must be Hebrew, she should be classy, she should have domestic skills or be willing to learn. No children preferred but I'll accept her having 1 little Hebrew, but that's it. She must work.

The bad part in all this is I could pull ass all day especially with me in decent shape but I don't want just empty fornication. I'm done with that. I want something real, but I'm not settling. I think I may have to find a Hebrew female from another country or I should move outta Vegas because I think it's jaded me. We are notorious for having wack ass broads.

Ahhhhh. That felt good to get out. Thanks for listening.
you know the answer, brother. There are plenty of good women in Vegas. Find one at church if you need to. Always plenty of women dressed in their finest looking for a good God- fearing man of Christ to wed.  

By the way, Christ is the fulfillment of all those laws given by Moses.  You can eat pork, seafood, chicken, its all good. ... read the passage above this
