I just spent the last hour calculating how many people are in hell according to establishment christian theology

We'll see about that one. Two things about this that I'm looking at. One, we don't have a full understanding of everything that has been in the past. Of course we can look today, but a lot of our science is based on what we observe today. Our view of the past is based on what we see today. There's a 1,000% chance there are things that are not there anymore, that we can't observe. Secondly, our view of Genesis is not accurate to what the Bible says. I mentioned a couple of things before concerning Genesis, and athiests looked at me like I'm making things up just to suit what I'm saying. I'm of the belief that Genesis couldn't even been examined until we had our scientific knowledge that we have today. So that is what I want to do, look at Genesis in light of our science, our observations. If I'm successful, or if I'm right about Genesis being literal, the kind of scientific discoveries that I make from my studies, should exceed what we currently have. Perhaps finding the "Theory of Everything" or something along those lines.

We'll see.

Actually you would be mistaken about your 1000% chance. See relativity. What is time?

The mental gymnastics necessary to be religious and scientific are really inspiring.

Moreso than the religion itself, actually.

Speaking of combining Science and Religion did any else read about Pat Robertson and William Lane Craig coming out against Young Earth Creationist. Better late than never.

polkinghorne has a fascinating book on this topic that's worth a read

i'd heard about pat robertson but not WLC. that's a huge departure for both of them, and especially WLC since he's been so heavily involved in literal interpretation apologetics. but that's where things are headed, honestly. british theologians by and large have for decades been stumped by the american schools of thought that insist on arguing for young earth creationism

edit: ken ham blew his lid when robertson said that. when you've got mainstream christian voices telling you that pat robertson is a force of liberalism trying to drive america to hell you know there's a pretty scary problem

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
