RE: Ask a Theist!
Perhaps this is a good question for KC.

I had an interesting discussion/debate with a muslim a few days ago. We got onto the subject of the universe, stars, speed of light and pretty much we agreed on things from a scientific perspective (which I found interesting). But when it comes to stuff like YEC (Young earth creationists) what is it that makes them CLING to this primitive world view? How does someone such as yourself (who is an evolutionary creationist) cope with others who so directly oppose your view of creation and how do YOU debate with them?

What would you say is your strongest argument as an evolutionary creationist against someone such as a YEC.

It makes me interested in others who share similar views even though we don't share the same feelings on a god figure, but I become excited and thrilled when someone is interested in science and always wonder... "Why don't the rest of these poor saps get this stuff?"

Depends, a theist would be a christian, since they believe in a God that answers miracles, and prayers.

Sometimes christians try to make a case for a Deistic god though.

Agreed, they do this in almost every debate I’ve been in with them…

They think that a deist god is a gateway drug to Christianity, so they push it.

However, it is actually a detox from theism.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Ok, here is my line of thinking: If God controls everything I do and say, even what I think, then by definition my mind, everything that makes me, is God.

So, I am God.

Since God can't LIE, Everything I say must be the truth, since I am God.

Now, I am your master, KC.

Since I said that, it is now true, cuz I am God.

I shall be the new admin of this forum.

Since I am God, this is also true.

Since I also control Stark, cuz everything is controlled by God, I, as God, have the ability to remove you from this forum.

I also Control you too, KC, cuz I am God.

Since I am controlling the way I type, I am God.

I also know it is a fact because I,God, made it so.

In other words, if God controls my mind, emotions, and thinking, but extention, I am that God.

No. No more than a TV remote makes it a TV or a remote control makes it an RC car.

Like I've said before, God's morals are His own. His actions are His own for His own purpose.
