REVELATION 10


"And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:

And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,

And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.

And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.

And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,

And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:

But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.

And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.

And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.

And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings."

Those are crazy and funny signs you have found.

As Christians we need to fear God and respect his Scripture. At the same time we need to accept scientific fact. Your evolution debate shows that there is among the experts plenty of debate on what should be accepted as evolutionary fact.

How about run!!

That is a good option, but one should make sure he or she looks after others if he or she can.

satire and theology,

I'm glad you said that. It gives me an excuse to say that they could be considered appropriate to the articles, in the context of the 'signs' of the End Times. Of course, those 'signs' will be anything but funny.

Many will never accept Creationism, no matter what the evidence shows, because it ultimately would then mean that they are accountable to a superior Being. Many Evolutionists treat the theory as a religion, and they refuse to even acknowledge any evidence that suggests that Creationism is correct. Plus, they begin with the assumption that Darwinian Evolution is the correct model (as with their foundational assumptions that they use for carbon dating), in the first place, thereby tainting any evidence they may find. Not even Scientists are completely non-biased, so they interpret their findings through 'glasses' that are tainted by their worldview.

They claim that the frauds, hoaxes, fakes, and mistakes that have been presented as 'proof' for Darwinian Evolution (some of which were disproved a century ago, but are still being taught in some textbooks and classrooms today), is merely Science 'self-correcting' itself.

First, this so-called 'self-correcting' leads thousands to believe a lie, sometimes even causing many people to believe falsehoods for over a period of 100 or more years.
Second, this excuse reminds me of Jehovah's Witnesses, who claim that their many past "false prophecies" are merely human beings learning from their mistakes.

thekingpin68,

You mean like this?:

"So when you see standing in the holy place 'the abomination that causes desolation,' spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand— then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains." (Matt. 24:15,16)

Empirical scientific FACTS should be taught in science class. Any scientific philosophical theory should be pointed out as such!

Creation theory, which may be true at points, at yet is non-empirical in regard to first cause, should be taught in philosophy and philosophy of religion classes. I agree with Chucky on this point.

This reasonable approach would see scientific, secular and religious worldviews taught in High School.

I agree, though I don't see this happening. It was not even happening when I was in Elementary School. In school (including college), it was always taught to me as hard, accepted, proven facts. (The only exception was in a college logic class, where the professor wrote on the board the logical improbability of Darwinian Evolution having occurred. He wrote the number 1, then a few lines of zeros, each line extending the entire length of the blackboard, to show "1 in [whatever the number was] chance that this could have occurred." This was astounding to me, especially since, as far as I know, he was not even a Christian.) Darwinian Evolution should not even be called, in the strictest sense, a theory, because it is not repeatable, testable or falsifiable. And it is certainly not a fact, and even many Evolutionists would readily agree (and have agreed with me on this point). Darwinian (macro) Evolution is speculation (and again, some Evolutionists have agreed with me on this).

Yes, some evolution is deduction.
