    God does not work that way. Will not save a person that believe and want to showoff.
    God work in mysterious ways.

    Also building jumping wasn't prevalent in the Bible... I'm not saying it wasn't a thing, just that there isn't a Josiah 5:24 And lo, Josiah jumped forth from the towers and was safely delivered to the ground by they hand of God

    Well, no, I think the actual translation is closer to: And lo, Josiah jumpeth forth from the tower full with the knowledge that God, in his diverse ways, would deliver him unto the ground with his hand. Yet as he did approacheth the ground, then did God deliver not his hand, but just one, solitary finger, extended in silent rebuke.

    Still, that explanation for where the flood waters went isn't so bad. They aren't so much messing with physics as with time. Add a bit of Pangea, some plate techtonics, and a whole lot of time...lots and LOTS of time, and...well, maybe.

    I can truly understand people stop having faith when windows ME came forth.

    Re: Dinosaurs on the Ark: How It Was Possible

    Here is another slice of their idiocy...they just made a teenager a saint:

    To become a saint, typically an individual needs to have two miracles attributed to them. Acutis' first miracle occurred in 2020, when a Brazilian boy was reportedly healed of a birth defect in his pancreas that didn't allow him to eat food normally after his mother prayed to Acutis. The most recent miracle involves a Costa Rican girl who suffered head trauma after falling from her bicycle. She was apparently healed after her mother prayed at Acutis' tomb.

    And now they will pray to him with a straight face

    Let them just pile their idiocy on...

    I'm guessing the republican supreme court will find a way to accommodate them.

    I know we've never had a true separation of church and state but I felt like we were making progress. But lately it feels like we're backsliding.

    Re: Dinosaurs on the Ark: How It Was Possible

    I find the difference between the US and the UK quite interesting around this. We actually have an Established State Religion so the Church of England is actually written into our political system. Pretty sure I won't be educating anyone by saying our King (our titular, if nominal, Head of State) is the head of the Church of England. What might be more surprising (I don't know - do people know this outside of the UK?) is that the Bishoprics of the Church of England hold a guaranteed number of seats in the House of Lords which holds actual legislative power (if only a veto). So we absolutely do not have a separation of Church and State in theory.

    But I think we actually have a far greater separation of Church and State in practice than you guys do, even though you have it written into your constitution. I can't think of any legislation in the last 100 years that was significantly coloured by the Church and its desires. Those Bishops seem to be really good and putting on the secular hats when it's appropriate to do so. (Their pointy hats are WAY cooler though).

    I wonder why that dichotomy exists.

    I certainly didn't know that, then again, I know very little about how your country is governed. Other than Parliament, House of Lords, Prime Minister exist. I know nothing about how the process works. If it's anything like here, how it's suppose to work and how it actually works are very different.

    That is part of the reason the colonies chose to separate church and state, breaking from England. It is baked into the cake, but the republicans are changing that via a republican supreme court.

    Next up: Louisiana mandated the ten commandments be posted in schools.

    The Christian right is in power now and they want their god taught. Maybe down the road Muslims will dominate and we will have to take the commands down and put their version up.
