This helped me to see the source of Alan’s enmity towards me. It is pure envy.

I'm making a catch-all place for the discussions on these topics that were currently under different topics/subjects. As I move old posts into this new topic, the oldest ones will appear to identify the starter/owner of this topic, even though that person didn't create this topic.

For the life of me, I cannot take this fellow seriously. With a level of abuse (granted, I provoked it here, but it is just so much fun. And this is not really an example of it) that is off the charts, it is virtually the only thing about him worth mentioning. I can’t imagine why the Librarian (that old hen) puts up with him, when she has dropped the abuse hammer on others. Poor CC suffers it every time you turn around—not necessarily unjustly, but certainly no worse than this fellow. Even

If you ran Twitter, banning JWI for his unforgivable sin of implying you do not know everything would hold priority over banning Trump.

Lamer and lamer and lamer. Next you'll be insulting me with "Your mother wears Army shoes!"

Shermer’s coverage of the four-battle war between creationists and evolutionists was worth the price of admission alone, and since the price was free—his Great Courses lecture series was a library checkout—it was doubly worth it. I don’t want my writing to be lame, so I will refrain from application of the Huck Finn enthusiasm for a certain traveling circus, “It didn’t cost nothing and it was worth it, too!” But in this case, it really was worth something, even though I paid nothing. 

Most of the participants of the Scopes trial had ulterior motives, and the outcome of the trial was not what evolution advocates had hoped for. They had wanted Scopes to lose, so as to appeal the case all the way up to the U.S. Supreme Court. Scopes did lose, in the overwhelmingly religious state of Tennessee, inclined towards fundamentalism then and hotbed of it even now, but that state employed a “legal loophole” (Shermer’s term) so that the case went no further. In light of the guilty verdict, other states enacted anti-evolution laws for their schools, and textbook writers were so intimidated that they didn’t touch the subject for 25 years. It took the shock of Sputnik in 1958 to galvanize evolutionists around sudden fears that the U. S. was falling behind in science. 

The fledgling ACLU, rallying to the defense, initially saw the case as a test of free speech, rather than squabbling over religion or science. Dayton Tennessee hoped the case would put their economically distressed town on the map. John Scopes, an out-of-town substitute teacher, thought the publicity might help his cause in a local love interest, says Shermer. He wasn’t even sure that he had taught evolution, but he agreed to be used as a test case for the evolutionist cause. Alan’s grandfather covered the trial for the Baltimore Sun and repeatedly “mocked the town's inhabitants as "yokels" and "morons.” (actually, it was H. L. Mencken)

Lead prosecuting attorney William Jennings Bryan was not the narrow minded “buffoon” that Alan’s grandfather made him out to be. Shermer points out that he was in most respects liberal-minded. However, in the aftermath of WWI, he became alarmed at the human cost of teaching evolution. Aghast at Germany’s embrace of the “pseudoscience” of social Darwinism, channeled into eugenics, he decided that the best way to stamp out that aftereffect was to stamp out the original effect. His distrust of science can be seen in his statement released to reporters after the trial:

“Science is a magnificent force, but it is not a teacher of morals. It can perfect machinery, but it adds no moral restraints to protect society from the misuse of the machine. It can also build gigantic intellectual ships, but it constructs no moral rudders for the control of storm-tossed human vessel.” He next devotes a few lines to the horrific advances of war that science had enabled, then concludes with: “If civilization is to be saved from the wreckage threatened by intelligence not consecrated by love, it must be saved by the moral code of the meek and lowly Nazarene. His teachings, and His teachings alone, can solve the problems that vex the heart and perplex the world.” That statement will resonate with many today, not just Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Michael Shermer strives mightily to separate the science of Darwin from the “pseudoscience” of social Darwinism. I am willing to let that separation stand in the scientific sense, but it certainly does not stand in the sense that matters—that of common sense and human motivation. Newly minted atheists such as H. G. Wells acknowledged the corrosive effect of evolution. In his Outline of History, he states: “A real de-moralization ensued...a real loss of faith after 1859 [publication of Darwin’s Origin of the Species]. Prevalent peoples at the close of the nineteenth century believed that they prevailed by virtue of the Struggle for Existence, in which the strong and cunning get the better of the weak and confiding....Man, they decided, is a social animal like the Indian hunting dog....It seemed right to them that the big dogs of the human pack should bully and subdue.”

It is just psychology Wells references. There is no scientific linkage, certainly no “proof.” But anyone who has seen 2001–a Space Odyssey instantly makes the connection. The starving hominid does not advance by loving his neighbor. He does not advance by displaying morality and decency. He responds by picking up a Darwin and beating his rival to death with it, and then all his buddies close in to make sure the kill is complete.

The only ones blind to this obvious connection are atheistic evolutionists, who wish to spotlight human advancement, not human regression. But my wife came across a young man in her ministry just today who opined that many of his generation were “returning to God and the Bible,” since “nothing else has worked out too well, has it?” Only atheist evolutionists are blind to the societally corrosive effects of their beloved theory. Hence, my hilarious joke that 93% of such evolutionists play drums, but the only song they will perform is Also Sprach Zarathustra.

Suffer through the latest innovation of “evolutionary psychologists” explaining how moral qualities evolved, pure storytelling enhanced by mostly irrelevant or ambiguous modern studies. See if you can hold it together as they explain how man’s preference for curvy women evolved because the straighter type didn’t have those convenient shelves for balancing lots of babies, presumably dropping them all to be gobbled up by hungry predators—all just a typical day in the life of our “struggle for survival.” Standby for their explanation on the evolution of religious devotion itself, that God is a superhuman cop to enforce, though threats of a hot afterlife, the do’s and don’t of evolving society, infinitely preferable to a human cop of whom you can pop one in the jaw. 

Phillip Johnson, University of California law professor, founding father of the intelligent design movement, according to Shermer, “accuses scientists of unfairly defining God out of the picture by limiting the search for causes to only natural causes. He complains scientists who postulate that there are supernatural forces or interventions at work in the natural world are being pushed out of the scientific arena on the basis of nothing more than a fundamental rule of the game.” Of course. The “rules of the [science] game” are written so that he will lose. He should accept it, as Jehovah’s Witnesses do, instead taking his shots that science is not the all-powerful tool of discovery that it pretends to be, but instead he urges “that the rules be changed to allow methodologigical supernaturalism.” 

“Okay,” Shermer says, “but what would that look like? How would that work? Since science is based on natural causes, what are we supposed to do with a supernatural explanation?” His words appear to indicate that he doesn’t really disagree that the game is rigged—he just doesn’t know how to fix it. His words reveal the fundamental weakness of science; it is not equipped to analyze things that are “examined spiritually.” In theory, scientists acknowledge their inadequacy on such things and pass on judgement upon them. In practice, many of them come to feel that their discipline has the lock upon discovery as they seek to run their “competition” off the road. 

It spills over into other fields.

    Hello guest!
to biblical criticism, “the historian cannot take up anything having to do with the transcendent, or the supernatural, the historian cannot talk about the miraculous birth of Jesus, his miracles, his walking on the water, his transfiguration, his resurrection from the dead, and so forth. Well, fair enough. The historian can’t talk about those things, but that methodological restraint ... very quickly becomes implicitly an epistemological denial, that is ‘the historian cannot talk about these things, therefore they are not real.’” This quote taken from a review contrasting biblical interpretation models of Johnson and Bart Ehrman. I disagree with the historical-critical method of Ehrman, though I applaud him for one very clever aside that if you know a Latin phrase and also a perfectly fine English phrase meaning the same thing, you should always use the Latin so that people will know you are educated.

I once had a long discussion at the door of a committed evolutionist. At length he said, “What difference does it make, anyway? Either way, we’re here.” I replied that if there was a Creator, just possibly he had intentions for the earth and might not tolerate its ruination. But if there was no God, then any hope for the earth would come from human efforts alone, “and they’re not doing so well.” The man’s wife, who up to this point had not said a word, responded with “That’s a good point.”

Yes - at the height of human discovery they will be using technology to dominate others.  Terrible inequality and atrocities coming. Not this alone - they are now engineering birth defects to mix humans with animals i.e humanoid mice etc. Many of these scientists have no consciences.  They playing with DNA to re-invent the specie.... crossing inbuilt natural barriers with synthetic DNA and animal DNA. China is at the forefront of this and both Bezos and Elon Musk says we will live forever in a computer - what they call the "internet of things" the 'singularity'.  Trans-humanism and scientism is the new religion. What will happen if Jehovah decides to switch off that computer because of their playing god and doing unthinkable things?

I have not investigated it yet but they are building new facilities (many of them) that are about 6 football fields big and they only contain servers to contain all the information of all people on earth. In the last 2 months more than 1000 satellites have gone in orbit around earth...

(Funny how they want to ration our food and water and energy in future but they use so much energy to keep all these computers running and need to cool all of them as well......... These scientists who grew up on star wars are nutcases. Pity they now have so much control on the earth with their technology.....but Jehovah will step in and stop them.

But we knew it was going that way - their AI can spawn killer machines because it was originally programmed by humans with a flaw.  Now the AI entities are already writing their own programs.  The drone war recently proved stronger than the Russian weapons. Azerbaijan received drones from Turkey and Armenia received Russian weapons.  Conventional weapons lost against the drones...... new technology for the good of man?

All human thinking is linked to emotion and displays conscience with morals or not and free will to change a situation but they want to turn us into cyborgs.  We cannot live forever in a computer. it will be dead information.

genesis 11:6   Jehovah then said: “Look! They are one people with one language, and this is what they have started to do. Now there is nothing that they may have in mind to do that will be impossible for them. 

Yes there is nothing they cannot do now BUT because they do it without Jehovah it will be evil - without morals.  Rom 6: 16

    Hello guest!
 Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey, either of sin leading to death or of obedience leading to righteousness? 

Satan is their father and Ann o maly and Alan F will soon witness that...... we cannot live without the good and bad (the morals) given us by Jehovah.

And the reality is: you  think this is goofy....... but this is what scientists are talking about and doing the research for. What do you think the company " neurolink" is about?  Just about wiring the brain to be able to walk again after an accident or .........some goal which is much more darker than this?  When the WeF talks openly about everlasting life in a machine?  I agree, it sound just as goofy as Dawkins talking about alliens seeding our planet with life.  

But this is the level of science these days..... the good things they discover is being wasted on stupid and unattainable goals because scientists now think they are gods to themselves.

I heard about this! This is something tech giant Cyberdyne Systems has been working on for a while now. They have developed a network of AI-controlled supercomputers called Skynet and the goal is to replace human civilian and military airplane pilots with machines. There was concern that Skynet would become self-aware and kick-start a global nuclear war! I saw it on TV. It's like something out of science fiction!

      RENFORÇONS NOTRE FOI PAR LA PRIÈRE
      Avons-nous déjà eu une interrogation intérieure sur la force de notre foi?
      Vous êtes vous déjà demandé cette question?
      « Est-ce que Jéhovah voudra me sauver pendant la grande tribulation ? »
       L’apôtre Paul a expliqué que, pour rester en vie, la foi est une qualité très importante à cultiver .
      Il a dit : « Sans la foi il est impossible de plaire à Jéhovah. » (Hébreux 11:6) Cela peut sembler évident, mais en fait, comme on l’apprend en 2 Thessaloniciens 3:2, tous n’ont pas la foi. Ces 2 versets nous aident à comprendre à quel point c’est important de renforcer notre foi.
      L’apôtre Pierre a dit qu’il faut avoir une foi « éprouvée » qui veut dire que nous devons sans cesse cultiver la foi. (lire 1 Pierre 1:7) 
      Puisque la grande tribulation est très proche, nous voulons faire partie « de ceux qui ont foi » pour être sauvés. (Hébreux 10:39) Nous devons donc faire des efforts pour renforcer notre foi. Nous voulons être parmi ceux qui seront récompensés quand Jésus Christ, notre Roi, sera révélé. Alors, comme l’homme qui a supplié Jésus pour avoir plus de foi, nous aussi nous pouvons demander : « Aide-moi là où j’ai besoin de foi ! » (Marc 9:24) Ou, comme les apôtres, demandons : « Donne-nous davantage de foi. » (Luc 17:5)
      JÉHOVAH AIME QUAND NOUS RENFORÇONS NOTRE FOI
      La foi est tellement importante que Jéhovah nous a donné beaucoup d’exemples de foi dans la Bible. Ils ont été écrits « pour notre instruction ». (Romains 15:4) Les exemples d’Abraham, de Sara, d’Isaac, de Jacob, de Moïse, de Rahab, de Gédéôn, de Baraq et de beaucoup d’autres nous encouragent à renforcer notre propre foi. (Hébreux 11:32-35).
      Nous avons de formidables exemples de foi parmi nos frères et sœurs.
      La Bible nous parle d’Élie. En méditant sur son exemple, remarque 5 situations où il a montré qu’il avait une foi forte en Jéhovah. 1) Quand il a annoncé à Ahab que Jéhovah allait provoquer une sécheresse, il lui a dit avec confiance : « Aussi vrai que Jéhovah le Dieu d’Israël est vivant, il n’y aura ni rosée ni pluie. » (1 Rois 17:1) 2) Il était convaincu que Jéhovah donnerait à lui et à d’autres ce qu’il leur faudrait pendant la sécheresse. (1 Rois 17:4, 5, 13, 14) 3) Il était sûr que Jéhovah pouvait ressusciter le fils d’une veuve. (1 Rois 17:21) 4) Il n’a pas douté que le feu de Jéhovah allait brûler son sacrifice sur le mont Carmel. (1 Rois 18:24, 37) 5) Alors qu’il ne commençait même pas à pleuvoir, il a dit à Ahab avec confiance : « Monte, mange et bois, car il y a le bruit d’une pluie torrentielle. » (1 Rois 18:41) Après avoir étudié ces situations, demandons-nous : « Ma foi est-elle aussi forte que celle d’Élie? »
      COMMENT RENFORCER NOTRE FOI ?
      Pour avoir de la foi, il ne suffit pas d’en vouloir. De plus, la foi fait partie de l’esprit saint de Jéhovah. (Galates 5:22) Donc, pour renforcer notre foi, il faut prier pour recevoir plus d’esprit saint, comme Jésus l’a conseillé. Il a promis que Jéhovah « donnera de l’esprit saint à ceux qui le lui demandent ». (Luc 11:13)
      Il faut prier pour recevoir plus d’esprit saint, comme Jésus l’a conseillé.
      Quand on a une foi forte en Jéhovah, on doit l’entretenir. On peut comparer la foi à un feu. Quand on allume un feu, les flammes sont très fortes. Pourtant, si on n’ajoute pas de bois, le feu s’éteint, et il reste des cendres froides. Par contre, si on ajoute régulièrement du bois, le feu peut continuer de brûler. C’est pareil avec notre foi. Si nous continuons de lire et d’étudier la Bible tous les jours, notre amour pour la Bible et pour Jéhovah grandit. En faisant cela, nous entretenons et nous renforçons notre foi.
      Que peux-tu faire pour renforcer et entretenir ta foi ?
       (lire Jacques 1:25 ; 2:24, 26)
      L’apôtre Paul a dit que les chrétiens peuvent avoir « un échange d’encouragements, chacun étant encouragé grâce à la foi de l’autre ». (Romains 1:12) Qu’est-ce que cela signifie ? Quand nous passons du temps avec nos frères et sœurs, la foi de chacun de nous est renforcée par la foi des autres. C’est particulièrement vrai quand nous passons du temps avec ceux qui ont une foi « éprouvée ». (Jacques 1:3) Les mauvais amis détruisent notre foi, mais les amis bien choisis la renforcent. (1 Corinthiens 15:33) C’est pour cela qu’il faut assister régulièrement aux réunions. Pendant les réunions, nous pouvons nous encourager les uns les autres. (lire Hébreux 10:24, 25) De plus, l’enseignement que nous y recevons renforce notre foi. La Bible dit que « la foi naît de ce qu’on a entendu ». (Romains 10:17) Alors demande-toi : « Est-ce que les réunions chrétiennes sont une bonne habitude dans notre vie.
      Quand nous voyons comment Jéhovah nous aide et comment il répond à nos prières, notre foi en lui augmente. C’est arrivé à Caleb et Josué. Ils ont montré qu’ils avaient foi en Jéhovah quand ils ont espionné la Terre promise. Avec le temps, chaque fois qu’ils ont vu comment Jéhovah les aidait, leur foi est devenue plus forte. Josué a pu dire avec confiance aux Israélites : « Pas une parole n’a failli (n’a échoué) de toutes les bonnes paroles que vous a dites Jéhovah votre Dieu. » Il a dit plus tard : « Craignez Jéhovah et servez-le avec intégrité et avec vérité. » Puis il a ajouté : « Moi et ma maisonnée (ceux qui habitent dans ma maison), nous servirons Jéhovah. » (Josué 23:14 ; 24:14, 15) Quand nous avons confiance en Jéhovah et quand nous le voyons nous aider personnellement, notre foi devient plus forte. (Psaume 34:8)
      COMMENT PROUVER NOTRE FOI ?
      Le disciple Jacques a dit : « Je te montrerai ma foi par mes œuvres. » (Jacques 2:18) 
      Les chrétiens qui font tout leur possible dans la prédication montrent qu’ils ont une foi forte.
      La prédication est un excellent moyen de prouver notre foi. Pourquoi? 
      Quand nous prêchons, nous montrons que nous sommes sûrs que la fin est proche et qu’« elle ne sera pas en retard ». (Habaqouq 2:3) Pour savoir si notre foi est forte, demandons-nous : « Est-ce que prêcher est vraiment important pour moi ? Est-ce que je fais tout mon possible pour parler de Jéhovah aux gens ? Est-ce que je cherche des occasions de faire plus dans le service pour Jéhovah ? » (2 Corinthiens 13:5) Montrons que notre foi est forte en faisant « la déclaration publique pour le salut », c’est-à-dire en prêchant la bonne nouvelle. (lire Romains 10:10)
      Nous montrons aussi notre foi quand nous résistons aux difficultés de la vie de tous les jours. Si nous sommes malades, découragés, pauvres, ou si nous avons d’autres problèmes, nous devons avoir foi que Jéhovah et Jésus nous aideront « au bon moment ». (Hébreux 4:16) Nous montrons notre foi en Jéhovah quand nous lui demandons de l’aide. Jésus a dit que nous pouvons demander à Jéhovah de nous donner « notre pain pour le jour selon les besoins du jour ». (Luc 11:3) Des récits bibliques prouvent qu’il peut nous donner tout ce qu’il nous faut. Par exemple, pendant une grave sécheresse en Israël, Jéhovah a donné à Élie de l’eau et de la nourriture. La Bible raconte : « Les corbeaux lui apportaient du pain et de la viande le matin, du pain et de la viande le soir, et il buvait au ouadi (à la rivière). » (1 Rois 17:3-6) Nous avons foi que Jéhovah peut nous donner à nous aussi ce dont nous avons besoin.
      Nous sommes sûrs que, si nous appliquons les principes bibliques, nous pourrons nourrir notre famille. En Asie, Rebecca, une sœur mariée, explique comment elle et sa famille ont appliqué les principes de Matthieu 6:33 et de Proverbes 10:4. Elle raconte : « Mon mari sentait que son travail était un danger pour notre amitié avec Jéhovah. Alors il a laissé son travail. Mais nous avions 4 enfants à nourrir. Nous avons donc décidé de vendre des sucreries que nous faisions nous-mêmes. » Grâce à leurs efforts, ils ont toujours gagné assez d’argent pour s’occuper des besoins de leur famille. Rebecca dit : « Nous avons vu que Jéhovah ne nous a jamais abandonnés. Nous avons toujours eu de quoi manger. » As-tu déjà vécu une situation semblable qui a renforcé ta foi ?
      Nous pouvons être sûr qu’en appliquant les principes bibliques, nous pourrons nourrir notre famille.
      Ne doutons jamais que Jéhovah nous aidera si nous lui obéissons. Paul a cité ces paroles d’Habaqouq : « Le juste vivra en raison de la foi. » (Galates 3:11 ; Habaqouq 2:4) C’est pour cela que nous devons avoir une foi forte en Jéhovah, Celui qui peut vraiment nous aider. 
      D’après l'apôtre Paul, Jéhovah peut, en agissant en nous avec sa puissance, faire beaucoup plus que ce que nous demandons ou imaginons. (Éphésiens 3:20) Nous faisons tout notre possible pour faire la volonté de Jéhovah. Mais nous savons aussi que nous avons des limites. Alors nous sommes très heureux que Jéhovah soit avec nous et qu’il bénisse tous nos efforts.
      JÉHOVAH RÉPOND QUAND NOUS DEMANDONS PLUS DE FOI
      Que ressentons-nous à présent sur la qualité de la foi? Nous avons peut-être envie de demander comme les apôtres : « Donne-nous davantage de foi. » (Luc 17:5) Jésus a répondu à ses apôtres d’une façon particulière à la Pentecôte de l’année 33. Ce jour-là, ils ont reçu l’esprit saint et ils ont été capables de mieux comprendre le projet de Jéhovah. Cela a renforcé leur foi. Qu'elle fut le résultat?
      Ils ont commencé la plus grande activité de prédication jamais faite auparavant. (Colossiens 1:23) 
      Pouvons-nous espérer que Jéhovah réponde à nos prières quand nous lui demandons plus de foi ? 
      Oui, puisque nous le prions « selon sa volonté ». (1 Jean 5:14)
      Si nous avons totalement confiance en Jéhovah, il sera content de nous. Il répondra à nos prières pour avoir plus de foi. Alors, notre foi deviendra plus forte, et nous serons acceptés pour recevoir les bienfaits du Royaume de Dieu. (Hébreux 11 : 1)(Mathieu 17 :20)
      La foi est la certitude absolue que l'ont espère évidente de réalités invisibles. C'est en raison d'une telle foi, en effet que les hommes du passé ont reçu un témoignage favorable venant de Jéhovah le Seul vrai Dieu.
      Ayez une foi aussi gros qu'un grain de mourtarde car aucune obstacles de ce système de chose ne pourra vous atteindre, nous serons inébranlable par notre force de la foi.
