Squid Head: It’s A Fact

Did God Create Us Ready Made The Way We Are Now?

Humans and OCTUPUSES shared the same ancestor: Both are descendants of a worm-like creature that lived 518 million years ago -and this could explain the creature’s high intelligence

  • Octopuses are known to be highly intelligent and a new study finds this could be due to having brains similar to humans 
  • Researchers found octopuses  possess a variety of gene regulators called microRNAs (miRNAs) in their neural tissue comparable to that of humans
  • This is likely because humans and octopuses descended from the same  primitive worm-like animal that lived 518 million years ago

Adults And Kids Talking About Religion

You can take a rotten, smelly apple, and try to give it to someone. The person will think you are silly. Also, you could take that rotten apple, spray it with perfume, and wrap it in the most elaborate and beautiful wrapping paper in the world, but in the end this is all piled upon a rotten apple and isn’t any less silly,

What Is Your Approach To Thinking About Things?

Quote of the day: “Conservative apologetics proceeds by assuming the conclusion, and then enacts interpretive special pleading and shoehorning to spin the evidence accordingly. It’s better to start with PhD New Testament scholars teaching at accredited secular universities.” (Darth Harley in Grade 11)

Or, in easier language:

Can you re-word the above Darth Harley quote to make it easier to understand?

We Have No Idea Whether That Was A Good Skating Routine?

Answers In Genesis is a Conservative Christian group who argue that if there is no God with the authority to tell us what is right and wrong, there is no such thing as objective/true morality. They say:

  • Many evolutionists are quite clear that evolution does not provide a basis for morality. If evolution is true, then there can be no universal moral code that all people should adhere to.

Is this a good argument? For instance, would we say that if there is no God to “stamp” as true what criteria and standards we use to evaluate good figure skating, that we have no ground for calling a figure skating routine objectively good or poor?

Activity: Come up with a list of activities that are evaluated with criteria and standards, without talking about God. How might this relate to evaluating human behaviors as good and bad?

Pop Quiz: A Religious Apologist Part 2

One big problem for apologists is the question of how there can be an all powerful, all loving God who at the same time allows horrible suffering like childhood cancer? Apologist Ray Comfort explains it this way:

  • Why does God allow suffering? The short answer is because the Bible is true. We sinned against God, and thus all of creation has fallen under a curse.

Does this seem to be a good answer as to why there are children dying of cancer, or would a better answer be there is no God watching over things so of course random sufferings will pop up all over the place?

A bit of a glitch in God’s design.
