comment In creation of the earth and mankind, how much thought was put into this?
Did God think before creating? Time is part of creation; therefore nothing happened before creation. (Unless you want to argue that God created time, then thought about creating everything else, but that's only asking for speculation.)

comment Is there any theological reason for not drinking the communion wine?
Many (most? all?) traditions allow for a shared cup--not that it's always practiced. My church uses individual cups during congregational communion, but in small group/special circumstance cases, we have used shared cups.

comment Is Set Theory anti-Christian?
I was home-schooled and used A Beka curriculum for some subjects--but not for math. Their math curriculum, as I recall, was rather lacking.

comment What in Christian faith lies behind subject of science?
@JanTuroň: (cont2) In a similar vein, science can explain the existence of a great painting--how the pigments were created, the technique by which they were placed on the canvas, the visual elements present, etc; but science can never appreciate it, except as a work of engineering. Fully appreciating art, relationships, and even religion, can be aided by science, but it cannot be replaced by science, because science is incapable of expressing the totality of human experience.

comment What in Christian faith lies behind subject of science?
@JanTuroň: ...(cont) Science may be able to explain various aspects of a relationship with one's father (reproductive science, psychology, sociology, neurology, etc). But no amount of scientific understanding can understand or express the full reality of that relationship; the emotions (whether positive or negative), the memories, the shared experiences, etc. Science may be able to explain many, or perhaps theoretically even all aspects of the Christian faith, but it cannot express the Christian experience. That is the realm of art; not science.

comment What in Christian faith lies behind subject of science?
@JanTuroň: The idea that diseases are caused by evil spirits isn't really a Christian belief--a spiritual belief, sure, and a belief held by many Christians in the past, sure, but that's quite separate from being a Christian belief. The belief that the world was flat is a similar example. That is not a Christian belief, although it is a belief that was once held by many Christians--and even "enforced" by the church. Christian faith is more analogous to a relationship with one's father, than it is an analog to explaining phenomena before science can...

comment What in Christian faith lies behind subject of science?
@JanTuroň: Perhaps some Christians rashly deny science (although I've never met one, and I suspect there are very very few of them), but I don't believe any official Christian doctrine denies science at all. Some believe science has made errors, and attempt to explain these errors in light of what they believe is better science. But it is not at all common for Christianity to outright deny science.

comment Did Paul actually know anything about the life of Jesus?
You're correct, you did say "answers"... my bad. Although your previous sentence does attack the question; that's probably what got my mind going down that track.

comment Did Paul actually know anything about the life of Jesus?
This person isn't asking for an atheist perspective, though. They're asking for a historical perspective--which for all intents and purposes ought to be the same as the Christian perspective. That the question is inspired by an atheist source should be irrelevant, IMO.
