    I actually believe that evolution and creation are one in the same with evolution being how things were created with each theory supporting the other.

    I fully believe time as we know and measure it today and biblical time are two different things.

    For instance I think it’s ludicrous to believe that everything including the earth was created in six actual days. God may count one day as a million years.

    Case in point to prove this theory Noah for instance is said in the bible to live to the ripe old age of 950. Can anyone honestly believe its possible for anyone to actually live 950 years? I think it’s pretty obvious that they were counting years differently.. Most believeably was that each month or lunar cycle was counted as a year which would have put Noahs age at 79.

    There are acrheological facts left behind as well as undeniable holes in the biblical text.

    Lets take the dinosaurs for example. The bible doesn’t mention them at all yet we’ve dug up there bones. Could not the dinsaurs purpose during creation be to spread seed and fertilize the earth? They left big ole piles of dung to do just that!

    Man and woman was supposedly created in a garden. Then how did they spread to every continent without boats ? Could they not have started multiplying before the continental drift then when things started drifting apart thats how they ended up on each continent?

    I’m a firm believer in the bible but I’m also reasonable and the bible doesn’t tell us all we want to know just what we need to know.

But I think the catalyst to trigger these final events/stages will be an unprecedented economic collapse setting off a worldwide domino effect on the worlds markets throwing everything into complete chaos. It’s all most likely being engineered as we speak and proceeding as planned. But there’s going to come along a good looking chasismatic guy who seems to have the answers to all the worlds ill’s and will overwhelmingly be chosen to put everything back together.

    Now we command you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you keep away from any brother who is walking in idleness and not in accord with the tradition that you received from us. For you yourselves know how you ought to imitate us, because we were not idle when we were with you, nor did we eat anyone’s bread without paying for it, but with toil and labor we worked night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you. It was not because we do not have that right, but to give you in ourselves an example to imitate.

    From wikipedia

    Irwin’s death is believed to be the only fatality from a stingray ever captured on video.[84] A copy of the footage was reviewed by the Queensland state police, but eventually, all copies of the video were reportedly destroyed at the request of Irwin’s family.[85][86][87][88][89] Production was completed on Ocean’s Deadliest, which was broadcast in the US on the Discovery Channel on 21 January 2007. The documentary was completed with footage shot in the weeks following the accident, but without including any mention of Irwin’s accidental death.[90][91]

  • The Anti-E-Cigarette Conspiracy: Why would we want to block the smokers’ best chance of quitting?

    Had my first run in Monday night while at a bar while vaping. An obviously angry man came up behind me, grabbed my shoulder and told, not asked me to quit smoking. I replied “ I have”! To which he said I had been smoking all evening. “Sir, I am vaping, not smoking”. He then said i needed to take “it” outside. I told him that if, when, and until either the establishment itself bans them or a law is passed banning them he could kiss my ass.

    This next part is the best.

    This guy went on to explain that he didn’t want his kids to see people smoking, vaping, whatever. No mention of second hand anything, just didn’t want to see it.

    You may have guessed my next response, “ So you don’t want your kids seeing anybody smoking yet you bring them to a bar”

  • California mulls how to regulate ‘driverless cars’

    Do these driverless vehicles have the technology capaable of distinguishing various traffic situations and road signs? Wil they automatically connect with other like vehicles. Doubt it! This means there’s going to be a need for massive ammounts of expensive tech infrastructure everywhere. Who’s going to pay for it? Take the expense of a somewhat localized high speed rail project and multiply that by every city. So unless you ban all standard vehicles and force every person who drives to buy a new driverless car, it’s just not possible much less feasible not to mention just not as much fun.

    It’s a pipedream much like the flying car!

    Do they still have those? I haven’t noticed them for quite some time.

    A mine truck that runs the same path and not having to negotiate more complex traffic scenarios, then throw into the mix the idoits driving the non-autonomys vehicles are two completely different things.

    The implications he are huge. Lets just take for example accidents

    Who’s at fault?
    Will the operator of any regular vehicle always be considered at fault merely because technology lacks inherent human error a real driver can have?

    If there is an accident where the driverless car is at fault, who do you sue?

    i feel this move towards driverless cars involves a much more sinister agenda than getting a permanent chauffer you won’t have to pay.

    This is yet another attempt at more government surveillance and control. Control of your whereabouts. Control over your mileage and the ability to tax those miles. The ability of law enforcement to remotely shutdown your vehicle at. their whim.

    Than the $18.50 figure is low. The average household income in California is $70,000 just about every Christian church commands a tithing of %10 of your income. So that would be $7000 per year divided by 52 is $134

    Now lets say that even if Dads tithing for family of four taking up four seats should net $33 and change per seat.
