    No. Nonetheless, my point still stands about Trump's lack of commitment to one oath in marriage translating into his lack of commitment to his oath as a President of the united States.

    How do you know that? And even if it were true, it would still prove my original point about Trump, namely, that he can't be trusted due to his own personal infidelities.

    Why wouldn't Trump's wives stay faithful to him, especially since he's a billionaire?

    Donald Trump can't even stay faithful as a husband to one woman in his life, having been married three times now. So, how can I trust his oath to the American people and the States to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution, as a President?

    I've been on these forums for a long time, and I've participated in plenty of forum polls to know that there are many members who vote in those polls, while simultaneously being against voting, in principle. So, I don't need names.

    Isn't it ironic that those who are against voting voted for the option "Not Voting"? You just can't help yourselves, can you? :D

    As one who is currently living in Japan, let me be the first to say that there is a lot of truth to the article in the OP. What is also interesting is that there are many social places called "Buy-Me-A-Drink Bars" (I forget the Japanese term for it) where men can rent women to sit with them over drinks and talk. It's essentially like being on a date, except there are restrictions on physical contact. Japanese men (usually singles) go to these places to express themselves with these gorgeous Japanese women, and the women are paid to just sit, listen, and make the customer feel accepted. It's a real social phenomenon all over Japan.

    Yeah, I don't agree with Dr. Hovind on many theological points, especially as his ones against alcohol consumption. But, nonetheless, you should watch his other seminars to get a full scope on what he's talking about. With the Loch Ness Monster, it's not like people have their cameras ready when a sighting happens, just like when an accident occurs no one can take a picture of the actual accident. It's an unexpected event, so you would not expect there to be many photos of sightings like the Loch Ness Monster. But the fact that there are so many accounts of seeing plesiosaurian creatures all around the world is quite compelling that such creatures still exist today.

    Once again, secular humanists prove how they don't want any other religious worldview to compete with their own by preempting free speech. They are trying to convince public schools to not have field trips to the Ark Encounter, but what is the harm in having students presented with another perspective that may get them thinking differently about what they've been taught in the public schools (Yes, I know we shouldn't have public schools, but that's beside the point...)? Shouldn't secularists be thrilled to have students visit places like the Ark Encounter, where the assumptions and evidences for a global flood can be challenged in the public's eye, even if it discredits their work? I thought secularist humanists were "free-thinkers," after all. They sure are going through a lot of pains to keep people away from a supposed myth instead of opening a dialogue in the pursuit of truth, no matter where the evidences lie. It smells like fear, to me. Ken Ham writes: Read more about it here.

    Thank you for proving my point. What you've confessed above "gives the game away." You won't accept any evidence until God is described by the natural world, but, once again, you need to understand that the demand, "God has to fit into the natural world," cannot, itself, be verified by the methods used in the natural sciences. In effect, you are appealing to a non-scientific concept in order to make your own assertion about what God has to be. So, you're not refuting any evidence that proves there was a global flood; you're simply stating the basis on which you believe evidences of God's work must be established, in accordance with your Deist assumptions about the nature of God.

    You've missed my point, though. The assumption that only naturalistic explanations can be allowed in the natural sciences is not scientifically-based; that statement is based on a person's precommitment to the philosophy of naturalism. How can you prove the validity and reliability of that assumption from the natural sciences, Sonny Tufts? You simply cannot do so without begging the question. In the natural sciences, the principle of induction is used, that is, reasoning from past experiences to explain present and future phenomena or making inferences from particular cases to a general case. However, naturalism cannot account for the use of induction in the natural sciences because it always takes for granted causation without a rational reason for appealing to it, especially in a universe that is supposedly always evolving. In fact, atheist philosophers such as the 18th Century philosopher David Hume, denied causation on the grounds that whenever it is assumed, it is based on experience, which begs the question, causing one to reason circularly. Thus, Hume denied causation, and in so doing, he undermined the principle of induction, without which, natural science cannot be possible. So, if one denies that supernatural explanations cannot be allowed in the natural sciences, then, ultimately, they are left with the alternative to reject the principle of induction. And if one rejects induction, then one cannot study the natural sciences. Naturalism (with its assumption that only naturalistic explanations can be allowed in the natural sciences) gives us no foundation to trust the laws in nature nor to appeal to the predictability of natural phenomena. The only way naturalists can be successful in the natural sciences, then, is to borrow assumptions about nature from supernaturalism, which in this case, is the Christian worldview. When you say that appealing to supernatural explanations leaves us with no certainty about the predicting anything in nature, and then, for an example, question whether the sun might rise in the east tomorrow (because God made the sun and moon stand still once), you need to realize what you're assuming about God. In Scripture, God doesn't cause miracles to happen in nature arbitrarily, for He always has a revealed explanation of their use, which is to vindicate His messenger or His people as belonging to Himself before witnesses. Otherwise, we can accept the reliability of the laws of nature because they are established by an unchanging God. In fact, all of the scientists who established the scientific disciplines that we enjoy today were creationists, so God's use of miracles was no problem for them in their studies and successes in the natural sciences.

    I'm just curious as to whether or not you've visited the Ark Encounter yet. Ken Ham is one of the world's most renown scholars on "Noah's Ark" and the Genesis account of the global flood. I'm sure that many of your objections and questions can be answered just by visiting the Ark Encounter and seriously considering the information provided, using assumptions of your creationist opponents. But therein lies the dilemma. You can't accept those assumptions because your worldview starts with another assumption, which states that only naturalistic explanations of the universe can be allowed in natural science. That assumption, itself, is not based on the methodologies of the natural sciences, though; it is a philosophical assertion based on one's beliefs about metaphysical realities. The reason why that's important to grasp is because all evidences are interpreted by a person's philosophical assumptions about the nature of reality. It's not that we creationists do not have evidence that can be shown scientifically to support a global flood; it's just that evolutionists have a counter assumption on what the nature of evidence ought to be about such things.

    I do happen to believe that the universe is a little over 6,000 years old, but I have not heard of Gerald Schroeder's theory on creation. I would say, though, if he accepts that the universe is billions of years old, then he already has a flawed theory because there is no way to consistently fit "billions of years" into the Genesis account of creation.

    Suzanimal, you seem to have a fascination about how the dinosaurs fit in with "Noah's Ark," so I would recommend that you watch the video that I posted before, entitled, "Dinosaurs and the Bible." It may open your eyes to some things that the public schools are afraid to teach.

    The purpose of the Ark Encounter is not to rebuild Noah's Ark so that it can be taken out to sea; it's craftily designed in order to show what the Ark may have looked like, given the Biblical dimensions described in Genesis. You're missing the main point of the exhibit's creation.

    John Cena was not implying that kind of filial love, pcosmar. He was advocating love based on one's sexual preference, which would include pedophilia. So, once again, I won't expect Cena to speak out against, say, a 30-year-old man who goes after a 10-year-old girl because, hey, it's all love, and pedophiles can't help who they're attracted to, right? Who is society to discriminate?
