  • Re: What is the best Christian resource on dinosaurs?

    [quote user="J. Remington Bowling"]In fact, it hasn't been until the last few decades with modern scholarship techniques and scientific paradigms that we've been able to make a compelling case that Genesis isn't saying what it appears to be saying.[/quote] Do tell.

  • Re: Soon Shipping: Dictionary of the Bible and Ancient Media

    [quote user="Denise"]More along the lines of squishy vs hard-info. Sort of like NT discourse. Some like; some don't. I typically don't like squishy.[/quote] In case you didn't pick up on it, Denise is using a terminus technicus in order to tempt forumites to buy the book. There is a whole extended article on the scholarly term "squishy" in the Dictionary

  • FL Should Develop Some Comprehensive Collections by Subject

    For instance, theodicy. There are dozens of books on this subject, and many are considered classics or "must haves" for those studying the topic. Not so many can be found in Logos. While I understand the concept of PrePub, I really think that at times FL shoots itself in the foot with their slavish adherence to this approach. It may be scary, but I

  • Re: What is the best Christian resource on dinosaurs?

    The point I'm trying to establish, in light of the OPs question about "what is 'the' Christian response to the fact of dinosaur bones" may very well be "they require no response". I doubt you will find anything in Logos to make that case, but logic (despite MJ's disapproval) and Scripture indicate that fossils are a "tempting non issue"...and are deliberately

  • Re: What is the best Christian resource on dinosaurs?

    [quote user="MJ. Smith"]This is a false statement on many grounds.[/quote] Well, perhaps it is to you, with your penchant for formal logic. I'm speaking informally, as people pretty much have to do unless they intend to break out p's and q's. If you feel that light "naturally" occurs without a star to produce it, have at it.

  • Re: What is the best Christian resource on dinosaurs?

    I haven't fully read what's on this page , but it gets at what I'm suggesting. Creating stars in the sky by fiat REQUIRES that they have a much longer apparent lifespan (due to distance of light traveled) than the moments/seconds/minutes/etc. that would be experienced by earth-bound observers. Preferring a "natural" explanation to the Biblically-revealed

    [quote user="Denise"] [quote user="David Paul"] That wasn't a rhetorical question...I'd really like to know where that clod of information came from. [/quote] Your problem is a bit closer to home. I like Manatho (in Logos) and Philo of Byblos (not).

    Imo, you were more on track here... [quote user="Whyndell Grizzard"]there is absolutely no objective data about them- period- other than bones[/quote] ...than here... [quote user="Whyndell Grizzard"]Did they exist at some point, yes[/quote] There are very good reasons to doubt dinosaurs ever lived.

    [quote user="Dave Palmer"]My reaction to that image is the same as yours Petah. Not positive at all. Every time I see it pop up in this thread I cringe.[/quote] I had to laugh when I saw it, because it struck me as classic DAL. And yeah, it is the universal internet meme for snark.

  • Re: Logos 8 Wishlist

    [quote user="David McAllan"]The biggest improve I'd like to see is the end of the indexing . It is an absolute bugbear and I have a 7 core processor.[/quote] Since I occasionally complain about Logos & FL (just did in another post), I feel the need to be positive when I can be. Since L4 came out, I've never had the kinds of problems with indexing

    Have you used one of these pens, and does it work as effectively and efficiently as described? One thing I know it won't do is create a footnote.

    I've been stuck in quicksand over this issue for at least a decade. I had BAGD at one time under my first email address, but Logos says they can't locate that account. It was an old Juno email account back in the 90s. I didn't use Logos much from about 2001-2005, until L3 came out. Like others, I have my old Logos backup disk and no way to access what

    Just so folks know, there is a fair amount of overlap in these bundles, so you may end up buying the same book twice (maybe more?) if you buy multiple expansion packs.

  • Re: No NEW Journals - why not?

    As a matter of fact, a friend of mine gave a presentation this past Sabbath and wanted to use a couple of pics from a past issue of BAR and I was able to send them to him, so it has already been useful. Hope the newer issues since 2005 eventually end up in Logos.
