Comment Re:Why would they stop developing weaponry? (Score 1) 384

If you examine multiple sources, the primary being Marx's letters to Engles. You see the German state was moving more and more in the direction of creating a "Christian" state. Marx and others talked about the Jewish population thinking, if they are going to make a Christion state, we should get a Jewish state. Germany wanted only a Christian state and used that motivation to eliminate the need for a Jewish one. One of many factors but just saying they got rid of them them because they were them is not accurate. Humans don't just do anything just to do it. There is always always something that is motivating them.

Men and women have faults, does God as well?

The quote I posted was from the Qur'an.

We see slow ongoing changes in the fossil record but there is no shortage of "flood" events. Where we see rapid change as well. Many species becoming extinct and rapid changes in others.

Evolution is one chapter in the book of life, it is not the whole story.

The logic of "Genesis didn't tell us about this" is weak. What do people expect to be told about their origins by the Creator?

Comment Lips? (Score 1) 1226

It's not covered by Genesis. There's no explanation for this change going back 500 million years in any book I've read from the lips of any God.

[6.6] Do they not consider how many a generation We have destroyed before them, whom We had established in the earth as We have not established you, and We sent the clouds pouring rain on them in abundance, and We made the rivers to flow beneath them, then We destroyed them on account of their faults and raised up after them another generation.

Guess he was reading the wrong books. And BTW God doesn't have lips, He is the Creator of lips.

If you (or anyone, for that matter) have a valid hypothesis worth study, then by all means bring it up! Any real scientist worth their salt would jump at the opportunity to explore a heretofore unknown theory.

Laughable. Science today is about getting funding for the next project. Going on an adventure to explore unknown theories is a fairy tale.

La illaha.

There is no God.

There is no God in creation because he is the Creator of creation and there is nothing like Him. He created existence, time and space.

La illaha il illah,

There is no God, but God.

There is nothing in this Universe able to create (la illaha). So look for the One that does create.

This is clearly another case of too many mad scientists, and not enough hunchbacks.
