WASC Reviews LSU’s Accreditation

For maximum authenticity, and flavor, the following of yours (August 15, 2011 at 9:23 am) is e-dragged-dropped, not hand-copied: “Adventists and other Christians are gullible fools when they base their beliefs in extraordinary miracles and supernatural events merely because a subset of Scripture’s claims, namely historical facts, can be proven true after being “tested and evaluated empirically.”

Have you not thus just said that you accept Genesis 1 not simply by faith DESPITE scientific evidence 100% against it, but BECAUSE science disproves it?

WASC Reviews LSU’s Accreditation
@Professor Kent: Professor Kent: To discredit devolution of the gene pool you ask, “Was this God’s screw-up?”

You have established that you take by faith a literal Genesis 1 in the face of evidence 100% dead against it. But is your faith stretched too far by Genesis 3, which informs of sin, death, the Fall of Man — and thus his DNA? Wouldn’t a preponderance of detrimental mutations and deterioration of the gene pool be the pivotal mechanism? Don’t Adventists blame Satan and not a screw-up by God? Yes, and don’t we have faith that man, and his DNA, shall be redeemed, and rejuvenated, by God and not screwed up? Keep the faith!

Dr. Walter Veith and the anti-vaccine arguments of Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche
Informative and stimulating, but proceeding into more confusion. A veteran of Moderna vaccinations, I trust, hope, they are effective, at least until otherwise. The whole business, being part of End Times, is in the hands of God, not humans expert and as degreed as they may be.

Brilliant and Beautiful, but Wrong
Brilliant, beautiful, and so right! Speaking of your presentation at LLU recently. Great to see you and your family (especially my namesake, Wes. God bless! WK

@Bob Helm: Dr. Sanford is very familiar to most of us. He was invited to speak at LLU several years ago and I and a great many were privileged to hear him.

Evolution from Space?
Hats off yet again to Sean for pursuing this topic as a scientist should, no nonsense, and in it’s proper setting — as a revival of one of the ancient ideas recently upgraded as a desperate alternative to the increasingly compelling intelligent design data. I had occasion to review panspermia a few years ago and as is my wont I found it more amusing than scientific. If you would like what was intended to be a satirical response to panspermia and other related curiosities you could check out: http://www.iessaythere.com/black-hole-humor.html
Meantime, Sean’s article is of far more cogent worth.

The Sabbath and the Covenants (Old vs. New)
As he has done on this site many times, Sean in his line-by-line-item response to C. White (not EG or EB) has, to my mind, clearly enunciated the issue and resolution.

When all the hermeneutics, quoting, and arguing and inordinately judgmental riposte are over, it comes down, as I understand it, to two things: 1) Whether the 7th day Sabbath (whether enunciated in the famous 10 commandments or otherwise) is still valid, and 2) Does the grace obtained by the vicarious sacrifice by the shedding of Christ’s blood or other divine process too deep for us to understand in this life, cover every sin automatically and without ado, altogether passively on our part, or is it only on condition that we first totally and deeply accept it? Other details always hassled forever are distractions.

I accept that I must accept it, wholly, actively, even with agony, with my whole being.
