    Fasting thread

    This came out of the Lifting thread, @Jefferson mentioned he fasts weekly and he got me intrigued about it. I personally tie it together with lifting weights and fitness but plenty of people don't, many people fast for religious and spiritual reasons as well, so I thought I'd make a new thread...

    Mortal sin, free will, and going to Communion

    Avoiding going to Sunday Mass is a grave sin. Grave sins are grave because of their objective weight, not due to any subjective judgment. A "mortal sin" is a grave sin which is committed with informed consent, which means with full knowledge and with deliberate consent. Sometimes people seem...

    The Second biggest evidence of the Flood. Fossils

    https://theologyonline.com/threads/the-biggest-evidence-of-the-flood-the-world-ocean.58405/ Obviously, in my estimation. Story goes, that every creature which lived on the land, and every bird, except for Noah and his family and all the species on the ark, perished in the Flood. All those...

    Don't feed the trolls ...

    ... but do, work on your form. How you are on social media is your form. Trolls are great for practicing and honing and experimenting with your form. It's a rhetorical form, you draw from all the classical education trivium, including the grammar and the logic, but your social media form is...

    Hospitals now

    https://edition.cnn.com/2022/06/01/us/tulsa-police-incident-active-shooter/index.html I mean, obviously there's a conspiracy among mass murderers to terroristically attack the United States right now, and it's been ongoing since about the 1960s. This wasn't happening before then. "Soft...

    Let's take a breather on geology. Let's get into linguistics.

    Are these people Noah's family? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samara_culture Hypothetical culture without a known predecessor. Right around where we think the ark might have grounded (within reason anyway). Linguistically these people spoke Proto Indo European. These people originated All...

    How much do Americans want to spend on gun control?

    American household wealth is circa 150 trillion USD. How much of that would Americans authorize to spend to clear guns from the streets? There are 400 million civilian owned guns in America. What price would Americans pay for each one of them? In a fell swoop, a gigantic gun buyback, what...

    What are you watching now

    Inspired by What are you Listening to Now I-VII, and by the old Omnibox thread. Also includes though, if you're watching an account on twitter or a sub on reddit if you wish, we'll discuss whatever comes up. Right now I'm watching something that in my opinion is worth checking out. I'm...

    DEAR RUSSIA & THE REST OF THE WORLD

    DEAR RUSSIA If you stop, we forgive you. We forgive you all the way up to your head of state President Putin inclusive. For far smaller crimes there exists the legal defense of temporary irrationality, this we accept right now, as your valid defense. We will 'lift' all sanctions against you...

    Bring back pill mills!!!!

    This is CRAZY So MANY people are dying from fentanyl because they're buying street heroin that is 'laced' with (spiked, contaminated) fentanyl. This did not happen with 'pill mill' doctors whose practices consisted of prescribing opioids liberally. People would take the safely made, factory...

    Is volcanism and the earth's surface radioactivity evidence of the Flood? yes or no.

    Does liquid (melted) rock (magma or lava) exist solely because of the Flood? Are there radioactive elements at the earth's surface solely because of the Flood? And also, as far as climate change goes, do you think the earth's climate pattern changed when it went from its largely green surface...

    The Flood is proof of the Creation

    IF----and it's a BIG IF----the global Flood really happened, and IF----and it's an even BIGGER IF----the " fountains of the great deep" (Genesis 7:11) referred to a hollow sphere of water surrounding the earth's mantle, a layer submerged beneath the earth's rocky crust, then this would be...

    Ukraine is a WWIII powder keg

    Back before Russia began encircling Ukraine on three sides, we were some 'distance' from WWIII. When Russia began building up their forces to invade, we got a little closer. When Russia invaded, we got a little closer. What's happened to our chances of global nuclear conflict in the meantime...

    What is a biblical, Apostolic, Christian, regime, constitution or politics?

    And is America such a country? First we must as far as I'm concerned grant that the Apostles and Jesus never said that absolute monarchism was an inherently moral regime, constitution or political situation, but the New Testament didn't foment revolt against the current political situation of...

    Is there any obvious evidence today for the biblical global Flood?

    So as I ponder the global Flood, that a great mass of water was covering the whole earth, one of the first things I think is, Where did all that water go? And I think, maybe nowhere? Maybe it's all still here? Is there like a boatload of water just sitting around here somewhere? Maybe it's...

    Answering old threads thread

    There are a lot of very old threads here, that haven't been replied to in ages. Many of them are worthy of continued discussion perhaps, but at least many of them are worthy of being answered today just as much as they were whenever they were first posted. So I intend to post links to old OPs...

    The biggest evidence of the Flood? The world ocean.

    To take the Bible at its word, we have to believe that before the Flood, the earth had the same total quantity of water that it has today but that most of it was underground. We have something like this underground now, petroleum. Crude. Sometimes the crude is under pressure and all you have...
