    [quote user="William Bingham"]Greg, I would question your statement that evolution is a fact.[/quote] That's fine. Can you show me a scientist in a relevant field that has no theological agenda that agrees with you? [quote user="William Bingham"]The fossil record actually does not prove evolution. It refutes evolution. There are way to many gaps and

    [quote user="John Bowling"]This is another throwaway argument.[/quote] Actually, the deductions are very certain. The study of comparative genomics, for example, has essentially sealed the coffin lid on any and every theory of biological diversity that doesn't include common descent.

  • Re: OT - Another Win for Genesis

    Alex, "You make it sound that the Genesis account is there because it was a part of Ancient Near Eastern cultures, not because it was a revelation to Moses from God." It's there for both reasons. Revelation from God within an Ancient Near Eastern context and to a people steeped in Ancient Near Eastern ideas. Any scientific statements made in the Bible

  • Re: OT - Another Win for Genesis

    The water-covered earth in the Creation account was a common understanding of how the world was created among Ancient Near Eastern cultures, of which the ancient Isrealites were a part of. It reflects not advanced thinking or modern science, but an ancient worldview. In no way does this discovery validate any sort of relevant creation theology that

  • Re: Portfolio Price Too Steap

    I too thought the Portfolio upgrade was incredibly steep. But after looking more closely at the resources, they seem to be geared towards the technically minded uber-scholar. So that may help explain the steep price. For example, I doubt many pastors, especially those of multi-million dollar churches, will ever need or use the Ugaritic Library for any

    Can we update the engine to 4.0 yet, or can that only be done with a library upgrade? I actually don't own any library yet, just a couple hundred independent resources. Thanks!

    Just found this. If you click on the iPhone's power button, which is at the top of the device on the left, all the pictures dissappear. Got that hint from the web page's source code a few days ago but just got the home button confused with the power button at the top.

  • Re: Ancient Records and the Structure of Genesis --- TABLET THEORY

    Fred, Thank you for your reply. The colophon hypothesis certainly has some appeal, and at first look there may be some truth to it. Maybe the various sections of Genesis were written on tablets, with the colophons used to connect them together. As to who wrote them and when, that is simply a question that is more difficult to give an answer for. I'm

  • Re: Ancient Records and the Structure of Genesis --- TABLET THEORY

    Interesting book, and I'd like to read it if I ever come across it, but, at least from these descriptions, I think its a big leap between identifying literary divisions in a text and saying who the actual authors were. For example, there's no evidence to suggest Adam was an eye-witness to the creation of the universe, and also none to suggest that God
