      I use things like this deliberately (Like certain ethnographic videos,
      or dated ethnographies etc.) ; they are "teachable moments" on so many
      levels. This kind of post from our recent contributor I seriously do
      find less intrusive (less "spam-like") than the stuff that is hawking
      quick diplomas or Viagra-like substances etc.

      If the poster genuinely wanted to dialogue, that would be even
      better....

      [SACC-L] - Repent, Completely trust in God only and, Love Him with all
      of
      your heart.

      ---------------
      If you are an atheist, please read the section below with the title "Why

      Atheism and Evolution are not good ideas."

      All those who have sinned deserve to suffer in Hell forever.

      Therefore...

      1. Repent (be truly sorry for your sins and do your best to stop
      sinning).

      2. Trust completely in the Lord only, and do not trust in your own self.

      3. Love the Lord your God with all of your heart.

      The Lord sent His only Son (the Lord Jesus Christ), to suffer and die on

      the cross, to pay for the sins of those who trust in Him. His blood
      poured
      out, and it can clean away our sins. He was buried, then lived again
      after
      three days. Human works and Human efforts cannot save your soul. The
      gift
      of God is eternal life to those who completely trust in Him.

      Human beings are totally corrupt, but thankfully the Lord owns and
      controls all things. If He did not decide to save us from our sins, we
      will all be in Hell. Thank the Lord if He has chosen you unto salvation,

      and if His Spirit has transformed your "heart" so that you can trust in
      Him.

      By the way, Spontaneous Generation is impossible. Therefore, God created

      the heaven and the earth, including all living things. Those who do not
      believe in God must also repent.

      Repent, Trust, and Love. The Lord's will be done.

      You may distribute or share this article for the glory of the Lord.

      ---------------
      Why Atheism and "Evolution" are not good ideas:
      A. Spontaneous generation is impossible.
      B. Science cannot create nor totally destroy energy/matter. All honest
      physicists know that the universe is not permanent, and it surely had a
      beginning.
      C. Science cannot "resurrect" the clinically dead.
      D. There is order in the universe, not "random chaos" nor "chances."
      Also,
      there is only one universe.
      E. All those who have sinned deserve to suffer in Hell forever. Atheism
      is
      a terrible risk.
      F. Humans have a conscience, morals, and advanced intelligence,
      different
      from animals or beasts.
      G. Mutations are harmful and deadly, not useful as "evolution" requires.

      Cancer is an example of a mutation.
      H. There is strong evidence of a global flood in the past, when layers
      were formed quickly and catastrophically.
      I. Livings things are amazingly complex, including cells, many of which
      appear more "advanced" than modern space shuttles. Either the "aliens"
      designed humans, or a super-natural God did.
      J. Scientists cannot agree on the age of the Earth. There is strong
      evidence that the Earth is only thousands of years old.
      K. Archaeology and history prove that humanity has been here for only
      thousands of years (4000-6000 years).
      L. Fossils reveal "large versions" of modern-day creatures. There were
      dragonfiles with wing spans 3 feet long, which lived in the past.
      M. Evolution is highly questionable, and is a myth. The evolutionary
      idea
      that "fishes grew legs," and "mice grew wings" sounds mythical. Also,
      the
      theory must include "other creatures" such as the centaur (human-horse),

      mermaids, chimeras, fire-breathing comodo dragons, and gryphons
      (lion-like
      eagles).
      N. Scientists can use fraudulent or "biased" data. They cannot be
      trusted.
      O. DNA is a language. Languages require Intelligence. Therefore, an
      Intelligent Being made the DNA (language).
      P. Other reasons.

        You are most likely correct...
        A few other thoughts that occur to me then are these:

        --how many people who sit with us in class are "posters who have no
        desire for dialogue"?

        --...and yet we remain open to the possibilities!

        --...while we cultivate the teachable moments...
