    The resurrection to life or judgement

    Sorry. I was inconvenienced. I died of birdflu. Back now. Everyone is descended from Abraham, just as everyone is descended from anyone who lived long enough ago (and had kids). "Long enough" is probably about 1,500 years. It would be an interesting math study. There would be outliers, but...

    Good fences make good neighbors

    I doubt it. It looks like you have not understood the thought experiment. Or perhaps I have not explained it properly.

    There's no such thing as a Christian culture.

    Sure. But this isn't about them.

    Good fences make good neighbors

    Good fences make good neighbors

    A thought experiment: What would a nation's laws for its citizens have to look like to justify a policy of legal immigration for anyone who turned up at its borders? Said another way: How strict would the law for citizens have to be to deal with open borders?

    Time doesn't exist.

    Attempting to tie the nature of time to a theological outlook seems like a painful exercise with no obvious benefits.

    Nobody knows what it means.

    Air weighs more than nothing

    Earth — as used in the Bible, ie, eres — can refer to the planet or the land. The pillars were originally the contacts between the firmament and the then-cold mantle, ie, subterranean stuff. The passage in Job is referring to the globe in space. After the flood, the pillars would simply refer...

    Guns!

They walk to a nearby farm and the farmer tells them it’s too late for a tow truck and he has only two extra beds, so one of them will have to sleep in the barn. The Hindu says: “I’m humble, I’ll sleep...
