Re: [creat] Re: something from nothing
Thank-you. That sums up young-earth creationism and dispensationalism quite succintly.
Yours in Christ,

Science moves on to NEW understandings, while religion
(especially in its worst aspects) stagnates with old ones, often
trying to enforce said stagnation with political action.
Of course the REAL problem here is sin. Those who are
promulgating religion (especially in its worst aspects) are
envious of the prestige that scientists acquire through their
work. They are tempted by the lure of bearing false witness
about science in order to attempt to appropriate some of that
prestige for their own "ministries." The temptation itself is
not, of course, a sin. But acting on it is.
Now, by definitions as old as Christianity, any "ministry" that
suborns sin is a heresy.
