Thank you for your Dichotomous representation and presentation. If we boil the trichotomy down there is undeniably soul and body, a dualism and dichotomy. Yet, the trichotomy is a fuller view giving interpretation to the evil and Good inclination present the body, depicting 3 entities. Here is my understanding and practice which does not only contemplate ...

Creationists do sometimes make falsifiable theories and predictions, but I want to note first that: These predictions are not universally held among all creationists, or depending on the theory even relatively common They are based on assumptions that are not derived from scripture and which are not even logically required by the idea of creationism or ...

Just glimpsing at the question, there are inherent falsifiable things in "creationism". I am going to use a Hypothesis / Falsifiable argument format H: Life comes from life F: If a non-living (rock) thing becomes alive H: Living animals cannot change their kind through reproduction F: If a cat breeds with another cat, and produces a non-cat (like a pig) ...

Reasons to Believe is an organization which presents arguments in favor of Old Earth Creation, and on their Who We Are page, founder Hugh Ross states: One of the approaches I've developed, with the help of my RTB colleagues, is a biblical creation model that is testable, falsifiable, and predictive. Their web site offers an overview of their ...

The problem with this question is a false assumption: That Creationists would generally strive to create a model that is falsifiable. Rather, Creationists, especially the Young-Earth variety, would contend that no origin theory is falsifiable, merely because we cannot experiment on what has already past. Creationists have developed their own distinction of ...

A fundamental tenet of Christian belief is that God created the world, with the primary evidence for this found in the Book of Genesis. What is usually meant by Creationism is not so much about whether this is read literally or symbolically, but about creating a "science" that can be put alongside the science of evolution and therefore defend the biblical ...

One thing that I think other answers have missed is that "creationism" means different things to different people. The definition one uses is vital to whether or not it is falsifiable* in a scientific sense. For instance, if one states that creationism means: All life has existed in or close to its present form since the beginning of the earth Then ...

Whether you believe creationism is falsifiable will entirely depend on how far you think God is prepared to go in order to fool you. Consider a break in pool. The cue ball hits the pack, and balls scatter everywhere. Now suppose we have a blindfold on for the first two seconds. Then someone starts a video for the next two seconds, whilst we keep the ...

Several answers have been given, directly answering the question. Taking a different tack, I'd like to give an answer regarding why the term "falsifiable" is considered so important to science. Science is founded on the idea of gathering data and analyzing it to produce results. Frankly, both of these cost money (time and effort). Falsifiable claims ...

As far as I can recall at the moment, creationism is NOT falsifiable?? As far as first things go, there are only two choices, intelligent creation and spontaneous self-creation. The establishment of "proof" is difficult for either case as there are no photographs, eye-witnesses, or other reliable evidence. Spontaneous creation could have support from an ...

"Creationism" can span a variety of beliefs and/or theories. There is young Earth creationism versus the broader concept that life on Earth was created by God or an intelligent being. There is creation of human beings, creation of all living things on Earth, creation of the Earth itself and creation of the universe. I want to give a specific senerio of ...

You're right, creationism, of whatever variety, is not scientifically falsifiable. Creationists do not think this is a problem. In fact, they would say that all alternatives to creationism are equally unfalsifiable. The scientific method cannot test the past; it may be able to tell us what is possible, what is likely and what is unlikely, but it ultimately ...

The question should be hinged on the first command given to mankind (be fruitful amd multiple) and then the question is begged, how long were they in the garden being obedient. Another situation that begs the question about children is: who was Cain afraid of? In the curse pronounced against Eve, God said that her pain in child bearing will be multiples, you ...
