    IMO you would be better off going with ATI cards at the moment. Dollar for dollar they are out performing the Nvidia cards.

    I think I am along the party lines here with everyone else. Would agree on the Nukes. Coal-Based power Agree with what most have said. There are ways to make it cleaner, and they have developed ways to mine it with less impact as well. I would agree that in time alternative fuel...

    Quick question on archives

    Does PF still have all the posts on CD available? There is some older information that I was trying to find again and I see that the archives online only go back so far...and I think it was much longer than that... So was wondering if all the PF data is still available somewhere?

    God's omniscience

    Megashawn.... That whole example of the hitting your finger with a nail... You may have to go into more on that one because I have no idea what you were talking about in reference to this discussion. I see where you say it was not your will to hit your finger with a hammer. OK... So...

    God's omniscience

    Actually this is not really the case. The "free will clause" is not a matter of being free to choose good and evil... It is simply the ability to choose...yeah to choose good or evil...to choose black or red tie, maybe to do good..or to do better, and inversly to do bad or worse. It is very...

    God's omniscience

    I have addressed your points. You attempted to try and state that I "hung myself before the horse was even slapped". And I pointed out that I had not. I pointed out that even with the influences of the world around us..ie our environment, friends, family, etc they do not constrain our...

    God's omniscience

    Megashawn - Do I have free will in this situation....yes I do. Even if limited to the choice of jump or bullet I am still free to make those decisions for myself. You enforcing the choices that I have does not affect my free will. A given situation one encounters in life is facing that...

    Pardon the delays in response. Have not had Inet up at new home yet so things are done from work...which has not done much to let up here lately. I agree... you had just mention to come visit you sometime...by that I gathered you are not located in the U.S. so that is all I was asking...

    God's omniscience

    OK so lets get this strait. You do not know anything about me except for what you have seen on this forum. You do not know where I have been, what I have seen, or anything of that nature. I can tell you that I have been to more countries than most people have ever thought of going to. And I...

    God's omniscience

    Easier said than done...really depends. If anyone truly seeks the answer then the avenues for them to find the answer are many fold. Even without the Internet there are local libraries, fellow church members, book stores, pastors, etc, etc. One needs but ask. Granted human nature can often...

    God's omniscience

    You are correct and I apologize for straying from just the KJV. I still it as the first reference but then continued my research to stretch into other sources. For that I am sorry. I am far from a person to state that any one translation is the ultimate translation. And I will also admit...

    God's omniscience

    Ok so lets go back and read the story a little bit more for you. And we shall stick to a KJV for you. Back in Ex 7:1-3 we see God talking to Moses "And the LORD said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet. Thou shalt speak all that I...

    God's omniscience

    Ok now lets go back and take a look at a couple of things here. You have caused me to study :wink: and study a bit I have. Further along than I had gotten to on my own as of yet (I am still only in Gen ;) ) Lets take a look at Exodus 7:3-4...and I am looking from Youngs Literal...

    God's omniscience

    BH, Have you ever had a decision in your life that other people tried to push you into making? People saying something like "If it were me I would...."? Are those people removing your free will? Do you still not ultimately make up the decision on your own? In the case of the Pharoh as you...

    I think Jesus sinned !

    megashawn If you have faith in Jesus then odds are that you would not desire nor actually go out on a killing spree. If you had read the Bible you would understand it a bit more and forgive me because I do not have mine handy to get the references. But there is but one thing required to get...

    God's omniscience

    The thing is again that knowing the future and having it planned out are completely different. To be planned/preordained/predestined would imply that someone other than yourself has planned/preordained/predestined your future. To say that God has planned your life is actually vastly different...

    I think Jesus sinned !

    Phoenixthoth Actually if you go back and read Genesis the "sin" of Adam and Eve could be described in many different ways. 1) They were created and put in the garden and given only one simple rule...dont eat of the fruit. They broke the rule. Yes they exercised their free will and broke...

    I think Jesus sinned !

    Saint Careful there Saint. The original sin was Adam and Eve defining what they thought the definition of sin SHOULD include...and by their definition it did not include disobeying God...thus they ate. Throughout the Bible you will find many many cases of what happens when man decides to...

    God's omniscience

    Megashawn Sorry to say you are slightly confused in your ideas of terminology here. You are mixing up the concept of precognition, or the knowing of future events with preordained or predestined. Knowing the future is only that...knowing the future. It is not imposing ones own will to...

    The Essence of Christianity

    Does God really Love me ?

    Saint, I have been away from the forums for a bit. But your situation is not unique and many people wonder the same. One thing I can say is the the Bible is not the source for you to get to know God....Only with your heart and soul...From the Bible you can get an understanding of what...

    Schwarzchild I would agree that it is entirely likely that democracy will be short lived. It would be nice if a stable form of democracy stays in place. Agreed. The US is not in a seizing/dictating what associations the new Iraqi Gment is to maintain. All we are doing is working to put a...

    News War on Truth

    So let me ask why do you think it is a fantasy? We toppled governments in Germany, Japan, and Russia and look where Germany and Japan are now. Russia is starting to rebound now and is able to show its face again. It is not a fantasy and it can become a reality. However the people have to be...

    Christianity & the O.T.

    Megashawn Man was created naked. Man walked in the garden naked. In God's eyes being naked was not evil nor sinful. And think of this... Are not most people embarrassed if "caught" naked? Or unwilling because of shyness or bashfulness to run around naked? All of those feelings are...
