Answering Pope Francis

Pope Francis kept alive the main tradition of the Roman Catholic Church: compromise. Specifically he offered the familiar compromise between creation and evolution. But what he said will likely please no one. It certainly does not contribute either to good origins science or to good Biblical scholarship. Continue reading

Answering Michael Gungor

Michael Gungor answered his critics yesterday. In Relevant magazine he pleaded for unity of the Church. He also denounced those who called him apostate, blasphemer, heretic, false teacher, etc. over his belief in evolution. But in so denouncing, he left out the most inflammatory words he earlier used.

We know that waves transfer energy from one place to another.i Sound waves do this as well as radiation waves.

Verse 2 goes on to say, tadalafil “and darkness was on the face of the deep.” This was the primordial state either before God intervened or immediately after He intervened. It is possible that His presence alone created the physical conditions we are about to describe and it is also possible that this was the environment that existed prior to His presence on the scene. The assumption being made in this writing is that verse 2 is telling us about the environment that existed when God intervened. If you are an Evolutionist, thumb this is the state that would have existed prior to the Big Bang. It should be noted that the Big Bang, medical which really is a misnomer since the theory is about expansion and not explosion, occurs on Day Two and will be discussed subsequently in another work – God willing.
