Genetically Modified Skeptic is an atheistic channel of a couple who deconstructed after growing up as Christians and being extremely devout followers. He's a highly logical guy who addresses each and every Christian apologetic argument rather effectively by pointing out logical fallacies and biases. One of the most effective atheists I've come across.

In this video he goes over a Christian ad claiming that Christians founded science and that since science can't explain everything that there must be a theological answer instead when science has produced much more consistent results and how it's better to admit not knowing rather than inventing an explanation. Many Christians want to say that science and their faith are complementary as to avoid seeing how they conflict. For example, many scientific findings such as the Earth being older than 6000 years is in direct conflict with the Bible. Same with evolution vs. Adam & Eve.

When I go to church, it's because I want to be around other believers like me. I want to worship in a corporate environment and I want to catch up with others and exchange divine stories that have happened during the week. I want to exercise my gifts through prayer and prophecy. I love the fellowship of believers. :)

There are people that have exposed evolution as being incorrect. And the age of the dinosaurs as being much closer to our timeline. There is evidence that supports these ideas. Please see this documentary:


Also many religions are actually cults that have leaders that manipulate their followers into staying and paying them money. So we find wolf among the sheep as the bible points out. The religion started out true with miracles and eye witness accounts of those miracles and such. But over the years, predators have come in and started their own religions and have gained many followers.

I think we would be surprised, how many Christian churches today are actually followers of God or his word...but we cannot "throw the baby out with the bath water" We are living in unparalleled times...:)

No problemo, time is stretchy and elastic and therefore might not have run at the same speed at certain times.
As for evolution, I'm sure God created it and kept it on track through the millennia..:)

Speaking of dinos, I wonder if this is one referred to in the Bible?-

From Job chapters 40/41-
“Look at Behemoth..
Its tail sways like a cedar;
the sinews of its thighs are close-knit.
..Its bones are tubes of bronze,
its limbs like rods of iron.
..Who can penetrate its double coat of armor?
Who dares open the doors of its mouth,
ringed about with fearsome teeth?
Its back has rows of shields
tightly sealed together.."

You just need to look honestly at all the claims. I say that if you do that, you'll find that so much of this so-called science is a house of cards, and one puff of truth brings it all down.

I'd be happy to discuss any of it with you. Shall we take rock layers? Red shift? Evolution? Simple dynamics govern these things, and the "scientific support" is riddled with unsupported assumptions, and a very selective methodology. For instance, so-called carbon dating.

Carbon dating of rocks, shows millions of years difference in rock layers that contain vertical standing trees through those millions of years of layers. Rock layers at the bottom of the Grand Canyon are "millions of years older" than layers at the top. Rocks freshly formed from volcanos that date as millions of years old. Obviously their dating doesn't work. Yet they support their conclusions with it.

Who exactly is being manipulated?

Much love!

Speaking of volcanoes, the earth is supposed to be billions of years old, so why hasn't all that molten stuff inside it cooled down by now?

C Darwin was not a born again Christian, he got backhanded for his comment on the lizard running on water. what he said about the Lizard was outright blasphemy ! not to mention stupid.

There is no real argument between Science and the Holy Spirit truly, or put it this way the Holy Spirit does not attack true worthy science.

I know of people who are devoted to only science as another one of their gods tho.

Not to mention tho that science does not hold all the answers, nor does such claim to be truly, such people who make claims of science being the end of the story are only stooges.
I have come across many such simple shallow minded people with such ignorant claims, who are just only going along with the flow of the trend, so when one understands the workings of the Holy Spirit and you stand before one who does not have a handle on such an issue, their you have it ! an ignorant person who is not worthy of the issue at hand. one is claiming to dismiss a part of an issue and claiming to of won the argument. on popular opinion.

But there comes into the argument some stupid claims that some Church may of made.
Or that the RCC made in the early years ? but I found what I was taught in school on the subject was a half baked truth and half lies, not to mention a shallow lack of depth of that whole subject it's self, but typical regard of indoctrination schooling and I think it was the workings of Freemasons Socialist that inspired control of that line of subject at schools. it was another of their done deals ! So they worked to make the RCC look stupid, to people who did not know any better. as they all laughed at just how bright they are nowadays and another kick in the guts for the RCC. But such is a work of deception in fact.

I read once where the RCC account, when truly understood the gravity of the subject at hand from the initial onset made such teachings look like the total ignorant fools that they are. There is a lot more to it than what the shallow deceptive clowns loved to play out.

People can be made to look so smart regarding something past tense.

nowadays everyone is so smart, that they could all invent the light bulb ? but truly, no they could not at all.
So look at how smart we are now ? but the issue with how history got to the conclusion truly and all that that involves is dumped !
Now if one does bother to do detective work as into such, you will find the cunning of them who work to miss construe. So the masses think one is an idiot on a topic ? but it is they who are deceived.
