The majority of Christians are neither fundamentalists nor believe the world is only 6,000 years old.
WHERE IS MY COMMENT
here is another list. A list of people burned at the stake by Christianity. Many for scientific views. Others for having any other view than the one championed by the church. It has only been the scientific revolution that has brought this practice to a halt in western countries at least.
The world would be much better off in the hands of men like this instead of reason and science.
most Christian scientists are not western fundamentalists. In fact in most American churches if the actual beliefs of these Christian scientists were known they would be kicked out as apostate.
I am not against religion. I am not an Atheist. I am against religious fundamentalism in all forms.
I like you response. that was really good.
Claire, you are in a minority. the majority of Christians are not like you they are like the other people replying to me here. That's the whole point.
So you believe that a man is going to fly down out of the sky on a flying horse and kill millions upon millions of people... and this seems logical and good to you? and this finding of soft tissue proves that a man will fly down from the sky on a flying horse. You also think quoting a bunch of verses from a book written by men about 2,000 years ago who thought all that was going to happen THEN has some kind of magic power over me and everyone else to see that we are all wrong and that a man is going to fly down from the sky on a flying horse. This is true but all the greek myths that sound very similar are false.... ok I get it.. I stand corrected.
actually I didn't completely ignore the find. I wrote a post responding to the Dearth if fundamentalist Christians who think this proves the earth is 6,000 years old. Did you ignore other articles on this site? like the one recently posted about the 70,000 year old city that was just discovered in Africa?
If the original musicians heard this version, I wonder if they'd be impressed that the music survived, or if they'd fall to the ground laughing. Maybe it's like this Beatles 3000 satire: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Z2vU8M6CYI
Do you wanna know who's truly short minded? You are. You are lumping all Christians into one group, claiming that anyone who follows the religion must be a closed minded right wing idiot. Actually, the majority of us HATE those kinds of "Christians" with a passion. And you're just as bad as they are.
The lady believes that 'antah-karan' is being used in china and tibet for thousands of year. wtf,this is a sanskrit word for god sake.
Yeah, I disagree. I would say that, while it is certain that in terms of holding back progression, the church certainly played a part, it should also be noted that a religious-based view was the norm up until very recently, at least up until Origin of the Species. All scientific progress up to that point was carried out by men with a religious background. And men with religious backgrounds continue to pursue science to this day, making meaningful contributions, as did the one in this article. Your concept of a religious minded culture being in a permanent Dark Age is an unfortunate but typical portrayal spurred by lack of perspective and knowledge of history, it seems to me.
That said, I thought the guy made a huge blunder in his illogical leap from soft tissue discovery to "therefore 6k creationism". It was stupid in many ways, not the least of which is the apparent assumption of many 6k creationists that if they can just disprove evolution, they will have thus proved 6k creationism by default. What's worse, and more damaging in a scientific sense, is that this assumption has become implicit in the discourse, to the point where any questioning of the validity of evolution is assumed to be an attempt to prove 6k creationism, and is treated as such.
I have loved this subject for years, and always wanted to study it further - I find it absolutely fascinating!
Thanks for the article and links!
Evidence was found, soft tissue = young dino. True Christians believe in the Word of God as their authority and know that the governments which are and have been, was set up and destroyed for God's purpose. Jesus Christ will return and set up his kingdom, which will forever reign. Have you ever opened up a can of KJV? Here is a good verse to remember, 2 Peter 3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
1 Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God
John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. You see, it is salvation through faith, not through torture. I will pray for you.
The statues may not survive the Russian incursion into the Ukraine.
great how well its and other things get preserved, they give insight into the past and the ways people did things
interesting how similar things arer found all thoughout the world
very interesting theory about the holy grail not being a physical cup but his royal bloodline, hadn't thought of it in this way but i guess it could be possible as translations and words slightly change their meaning over time
very interesting how many years people have been writting/ interested in the Kraken
Ancient Origins seeks to uncover, what we believe, is one of the most important pieces of knowledge we can acquire as human beings – our beginnings.
While many believe that we already hold such knowledge, our view is that there still exists a multitude of anomalies and mysteries in humanity's past that deserve further examination.
We therefore wish to foster an open community that is dedicated to investigating, understanding and explaining the origins of our species on planet earth. To this end, we aim to organize, support and even finance efforts in this direction.
Our aim is to move beyond theories and to present a thorough examination of current research and evidence and to offer alternative viewpoints and explanations to those currently held by mainstream science and archaeology.
Come with us on a journey to explore lost civilisations, sacred writings, ancient places, unexplained artefacts and scientific mysteries while we seek to reconstruct and retell the story of our beginnings.
