    Time is Absolute

    Jefferson, Some questions to spark discussion.... Would you agree that the idea that momentum effects clocks rather than time doesn't actually blow up Einstein's theory because, in physics, time is defined as "what a clock reads". In other words, in the mind of most physicists, saying that...

    Dinosaurs are fake and leads to atheism!

    Do you have any idea how humongous the conspiracy would have to be to pull off such deception? Dinosaur species have been named from 51 countries and Antarctica. Thirty or more species have been named from 12 countries: Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Mongolia, South...

    Constitutional Monarchy

    Yes, you do. I'm sure you read it but you neither allow it to persuade your mind nor respond to it at all, never mind offer any sort of rebuttal. You routinely ignore direct questions choosing instead to simply move on as though no question was asked and nothing was said in response to the...

    Constitutional Monarchy

    Well, I'm not going to spell it out for you when I've repeatedly linked to the information. I don't have the time to rewrite the material and you wouldn't read it here any more than you've read it there anyway. It would actually be a far smaller number of people that you imagine. It would take...

    Constitutional Monarchy

    Okay, so the point is that you're being unresponsive. You make an objection and we respond to it and then it just is gone with the wind.

    I do not believe one single syllable of it.

    Constitutional Monarchy

    Yes, of course I am. And, incidentally, it isn't my opinion either. Most of what we are discussing aren't matters of opinion. The rules are laid out in the bible and no one has suggested that "the appointed king would be blessed by God". The point I am making, however, is that the likelihood...

    Constitutional Monarchy

    Yes, I've asked him this question more than once, with no answer. But then I've asked him all sorts of direct question that he hasn't answered. He seems to intentionally avoid answering direct questions or direct responses to anything for that matter.

    Constitutional Monarchy

    How the first king would be appointed is the exact question that is being debated here. Israel's king was chosen by the casting of lots and Bob's essay proposes the same method by my objection to that is that if such a government were to be instituted in America then the casting of lots wouldn't...

    Constitutional Monarchy

    What you do is merely state that you object. It's the WHY we are after! And stating that "it doesn't make sense." doesn't count because that's just another "WHAT" not a "WHY"? WHY doesn't it make sense? What is it that doesn't follow? Where's the contradiction? What principle does it violate...

    Huge UFO news!

    Yeah, sure! Of course it has! ;) When I see it, then I'll believe it, not before and even then only if it is compelling. Don't you find it odd that it's only people who can go places and do things that normal people cannot do that these UFO's appear for? If these things are real why haven't...

    Constitutional Monarchy

    You implied it and you know it. Well, since no one here is proposing "a government run by a dictator appointed by rebels against God who despises Christians and Christianity" then we have common ground upon which to build. People seem to always equate the term "monarchy" with "dictatorship"...

    What is Money?

    Well, when its just you and your family or tribe then converting one's time and talent into and exchangeable medium loses its necessity but the larger the group, the more such a need presents itself.

    Huge UFO news!

    I simply do not believe it. Such things cannot stay hidden. The fact that they're all blurry video and / or seen way out in the middle of nowhere just tells me that it isn't wise to trust any of it. When something happens in a public place where there's undeniable evidence of like, clear video...

    Constitutional Monarchy

    Interesting. It's facinating to me to notice which doctrines people are willing to actually make arguments for. Pastors in particular seem bent toward only ever defending the most superficial understanding of the bible and seem to instinctively gravitate toward single sentence proof texting. I...

    What is Money?

    What you don't get about money is that there is no alternative. It cannot be done away with. No matter how hard someone might try, they would fail to get rid of money in any society with more than fifty people in it. If one form is outlawed, then another will sprout to take its place. If it...

    He wouldn't answer in any case. There isn't 1 Calvinist in 100 that has the courage of his convictions.
