Noah’s Ark and the Great Flood

Clearly, from a purely scientific point of view, a worldwide flood did not and could not have occurred in 2348 BC. There is absolutely zero credible scientific evidence whatsoever to support this flood scenario. Not withstanding, sixty percent of American’s believe the flood occurred … Continue reading

I’ll Pray For You…

Even as a Christian, I often find this phrase offensive if uninvited – especially so if there is some sort of disagreement involved. It seems to me to be just a passive-aggressive way of saying, “I’m telling God on you”. … Continue reading
