Hi Myrina; Gen 2:24-25 (KJV) states "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed." This indicates to me that Adam and Eve were married (i.e. the use of the word 'wife') and were having sex (i.e. 'and shall be one flesh.'). This passage is writte

Hi Deb; You said: "The story as told in the KJV it is all Eve's fault... however, neither Adam or Eve knew it was evil to disobey.... until they ate of the fruit. It was God's fault for not giving them the knowledge in the first place. So the first sin is not to take responsibility for what one has done... such as God then placing the blame on man." My view on this: "...it is

wireloop; I don't know about 'ignorance' as a sin per say since, before the original sin Adam and Eve were naked before God and did not know they were naked. This ignorance did not seem to bother God since he didn't get angry at Adam and Eve until he found out that THEY knew they were naked. degiem1

Hi all. Firstly, I'd like to thank all of you who took the time to answer my question. Much appreciated. Secondly, it was interesting to read your responses and insights into what you considered "Original Sin" and why. For my part I would say that I was originally inclined to agree with Mercury Rapids that 'disobedience' was THE original sin until I read this, Gen 3:13 "...And t

Can anyone tell me which sin is considered to be THE "Original Sin" and why? I have my own thoughts about this but I would like to hear what other people think it is and their reasoning for it. Thanks in advance. degiem1

The media camera that the reporter and her camera man were using was what was zoomed in, on the blurry object, on a playback on the store's/gas station's computer. It was their camera that was following the blurry object around on the computer screen. degiem1

I'm not sure what you're getting at here. What I see is a moving, blue, blurry, object (that I believe is some sort of bug that is out of focus) moving within an area that a video recorder camera lens sees/records (it's perripheral (sp) view if you will) of an area in front of the store/gas station. This object moves around, sits still, moves some more, goes out of the perripheral view of the le

That's not the frame of a window its the edge of the computer screen that the media camera is focusing on. Go back and take another look and you can see the other parts of the computer screen as well. My 2 cents worth.... its some sort of bug crawling on the camera lens or the glass covering the camera lens. degiem1

Maybe something in the flowers of the Genetically Modified plants is poisoning the bees? Were the plants tested for their effect on bees who feed off their spring blooms? They say the plants are safe for human consumption (I have my reservations about this in the long run) but have they even tested, let alone proved, that the food for the bees from the flowers is safe for bee consumption? degiem

I have heard/read? that the Earth's equator is bulged due to the centrifical force of the Earth's spin being at maximum at the equator. During the last ice age when a larger portion than today of the Earth's water was frozen at and around the North and South polar axes would the Earth have had a slower or faster spin? Would the melting of the polar ice caps have caused the Earth's rate of equit

Caroline: Each of the heavenly bodies (planets, moons, sun, etc.) are composed of mass and therefore exert a gravitational pull, in relation to its mass, on all the others in our Solar System. i.e. the sun pulls on the planets and vice versa, the planets pull on their moons and vice versa, and to a cetain extent the planets exert a gravitational pull on each other. The gravitational pulls from p

Just finished reading the article, very interesting. I don't recall the author making any mention of the orbital plane and distance of Mars, in relation to the Sun, regarding any changes that may have occured due to the proposed impact event. So I'm wondering if he has any info concerning: A) If there was enough energy in the impact to change the orbital plane and distance of Mars in relation

Anybody: Was home visiting my folks a couple of days ago and outside their apartment building I noticed a small (about 10 feet tall) Maple tree. The unusual thing about this Maple tree was that it's leaves were not green. Instead they were a dark reddish-purple colour. Does anyone know why this variety of Maple tree (I don't know the actual name of this type of Maple tree) would have leaves of

Hi Kevin; Just read your post and the link to the Axel Heiberg Island piece on the "reliability of carbon 14 dating" string.

Hi Kevin; YES!!! Sorry, didn't read the book just saw a documentary on TV. If these trees grew in their present location and to the large sizes reported then they would require quite a bit more energy then small trees or shrubs for example. How would they get the sustainable sunlight, would their leaves still be green indicating that they were absorbing the red 'colour wavelength' or would the

Hi all; Thanks for your well informed answers. One of the reasons I was following this line of questions was that about a year or two ago I was watching a documentary where they had found the remains of an ancient (some thousands of years ago) forest in the high north where no trees grow today. I was wondering what the conditions would have had to have been like in order for a forest (the trunk

Kevin and Nico; If you will bare with me I have a couple more questions. First, as you travel North you see less and less deciduous trees. Is this due more to a lower avg yearly temp or is it due more to less overall yearly sunlight? Which is the more over riding factor? I'm assuming oxygen content is not a factor since I think, at or near sea level, in cold weather the oxygen content is denser

Hi, Nico N>"Does this in some way answer your question?" Yes, somewhat, but what is the catalyst that changes a tree leaf, for example, from absorbing red 'colour wavelengths' to, in the fall, reflecting yellow, orange and red 'colour wavelengths'? I would think that a tree would 'want' to absorb as much heat as it could as the days shorten and the average temperature begins to dro

In the spring and summer vegetation starts out green and then in the fall changes to other colours (red, orange, yellow or gold depending on the plant/tree and then finally brown when, for example, a leaf is finally dead)? Physics says (if I remember correctly) that any colour you see is the result of that particular 'colour wavelength' being reflected off of an object (instead of being absorbed

The link above gives the estimate of the population of Iran, as of Feb 16, 2012, at around 73 - 74 Million. From wilipedia - "Iranian government sources are sometimes quoted as giving a total of as many as 300,000 Christians in Iran. At present there are 73 registered churches in Iran." This would mean that the percentage of Christians in Iran is somewhat lower than you qu
