Gen. 1:23 There was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.

Gen. 1:26-27 Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."
27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Gen. 1:31 God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.


What a cool looking creature though.


Wait a minute. That's old testament. Remember what you told me about the old testament? So if I believe this part of the OT, then should I also believe the part about stoning your kids to death when they talk back? Also, the OT clearly documents over 2.8 million people directly killed by god. So what parts do I believe? Just the supernatural stuff? This is so confusing.


Have you ever read the whole Bible? Just curious.

No I don't actually remember what you're talking about.

If we're going to get an explanation of why we should ignore some stuff, here's some more stuff that could use some 'splainin':

Sacrificing as a burnt offering your young son (Genesis 22:2) or your daughter, if she comes out of the doors of your house to meet you (Judges 11:30-1, 34-5).

Having rebellious children stoned to death by all the men of the city (Deuteronomy 21:18-21).

Purchasing slaves (Leviticus 25:44-46), selling your daughter as a slave (Exodus 21:7-8) and making sure they submit to their masters, even cruel ones (1 Peter 2:18).

Executing pagan priests on their own altars and burning their bones (2 Kings 23:20-25).

Cutting off the hand of a woman if she grabs the penis of a man who is fighting with her husband (Deuteronomy 25:11-12).

Committing incest (Genesis 19:31-36) and cannibalism (2 Kings 6:28-29).

And having the military do all sorts of things to the enemy that would violate the Geneva accords:

Kill all boys and women but spare the girls who have not known man intimately for yourself (Numbers 31:17-18).

Destroy all that they have, killing man, woman, child, infant, ox, sheep, camel and donkey (1 Samuel 15:3).

If we are going to take biblical law as the literal legal standard, we’re also going to have to ban some staples of modern life:

Non-submissive women (Ephesians 5:22).

Cheeseburgers (Exodus 23:19), shrimp po’ boys (Leviticus 11:12) and ham sammiches (Leviticus 11:4).

Blended fabrics (Leviticus 19:19), rounded haircuts (Leviticus 19:27), tattoos (Leviticus 19:28), rude jokes (Ephesians 5:4), divorce (Luke 16:18) and using automobiles or electricity on the Sabbath (Exodus 35:3).

Additionally, women will not be allowed to teach in houses of worship (1 Timothy 2:12), men will not be allowed in at all if their genitals have been injured (Deuteronomy 23:1), and blind people, dwarves and the lame will not be allowed at the altar (Leviticus 21:17-23).

If you really want some "splainin" and are sincere, let me offer the perfect resource that you dig right into.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/16834 ... UTF8&psc=1

I figure this would be a more thorough way of giving you what you need to understand rather than trying to type it all out here. If you don't want to spend the money I'll send you a copy free for nothing. That goes for anyone else who's skeptical.

That is a generous offer of you Dave. In my experience, people like jcz1 sometimes want answers, but oftentimes it is just a shield for their chosen disbelief. A moral high-ground of skepticism and virtue that falls apart upon inspection of our own lives (sinners, are we all).

For those that don't know, I have a lot of respect for Dave, and consider him a good friend, even though we've never met. However, when he posts things I believe are wacky, then I'm going to point them out.

We had a discussion a while back about the old testament telling parents to stone their children to death when they talk back. Dave said that the old testament wasn't to be taken literally, that it had been replaced by the new testament. This prompted my earlier comment since he was taking Genesis literally.

I'm very familiar with Jason Lisle, author of the book Dave posted. Dr. Lisle has been exposed for promoting junk science and is not respected in the scientific community. He's an outcast, and there's a ton of information on the web about his use of confirmation bias, lack of scientific methods and outright lies.

One of my favorite podcasts has done many episodes disproving the absurd claims of Jason Lisle. There are several episodes about him specifically.

Episodes that specifically mention Jason Lisle:
45, 112 & 138

There's a lot more on the web about Jason Lisle's junk science and bogus claims:

Walmart is raising prices online to draw shoppers to stores

Walmart is experimenting with a new pricing system that is sometimes resulting in higher prices for goods sold online, the Wall Street Journal reports. "It simply costs less to sell some items in stores. Customers can access those store prices online when they choose to pick up the item in store," a Walmart spokesperson told the Journal.

https://www.axios.com/walmart-is-raisin ... 26828.html

Keep an eye on prices if you buy online from Wal-Mart. It seems you may get cheaper pricing by picking up your purchase at a store.

Leonardo da Vinci painting sells for more than $450 million, breaking all-time art auction record

The painting, called "Salvator Mundi," Italian for "Savior of the World," is one of fewer than 20 paintings by Leonardo known to exist and the only one in private hands. It was sold by Christie's auction house, which didn't immediately identify the buyer.

lithium ion batteries to become obsolete ??

Postby mnymgr1 » Thu Nov 16, 2017

I've always said, the way to dismantle the oil industry is through the invention of a super battery.
Not only for auto's but stationairy uses as well if they were cheap enough. For instance, whole house batteries that could hold a weekly or monthly charge, are supplied overnight when rates are sometimes negative (usually a factor of keeping nukes / wind power continuously generating) and would act as a buffer for local power outages. Not to mention a great storage medium for solar energy, if that form of electrical generation ever gets to super high efficiency rates.

^^ slight misleading use of the term "battery". A capacitor is not a battery, though the principle of energy storage is similar. Still an interesting article.

Maybe a battery-capacitor hybrid?
