@aceinthehole: "universal in that narrow sense".. haha... I love it. But I understand what you mean.

comment What about the “beforelife”?
Most Christian denominations teach that there explicitly is no "beforelife," in part based on the verse in this answer. They consider creation/formation to be when the person comes into existence; not just the body.

comment Is there consensus on the age of human civilization?
@aceinthehole: I suppose that's possible. But I still contend that anyone who believes the world is > 60k years old has no reason to believe in a global flood. Why would someone take the flood account literally, but not the creation account? Those who take one literally, take the other literally, and vice versa.

comment Is there a converse of “judge not, lest you be judged?”
I think this question demonstrates a serious misunderstanding of "Judge not, lest ye be judged." This verse is against hypocrisy; thus the supposed "converse" fits within the correct understanding of the verse already.

comment What are the main theological frameworks for interpreting bible texts?
@SomeFreeMason: I don't think CecilBeckum's point was that this question belongs on BH, but that BH is one part of the answer to the question. This question clearly does not belong on BH, as it's about Biblical interpretation.

@aceinthehole: A "genetic choke point" only exists if you believe in a global flood. If you believe the world is 60k years old, you almost certainly don't believe in a global flood. :)

comment Is there consensus on the age of human civilization?
@aceinthehole: The question is asking if there is a consensus--that would mean among everyone. He wants to know if the debate between YECs and Evolutionists revolves only around the age of the planet and universe, or also the age of humanity. At least that's how I take it.

comment Is there consensus on the age of human civilization?
@CharlesAlsobrook: Well, an ambiguous question does not necessarily mean the answer is "there is no consensus." That's the contrast I'm trying to make.

comment Is there consensus on the age of human civilization?
@CharlesAlsobrook: I think Eclipse's point was that the question was ambiguous. It asked about human civilization, but then also seemed to ask about "human history" (which could include pre-civilization). The answer to the OP's question depends only on what the OP meant.

comment What are the main theological frameworks for interpreting bible texts?
This is a list question; there are many "correct" answers, according to whom you ask, making it a poor question for SE.

comment Is there consensus on the age of human civilization?
@Daniel: If your question is on the date of the first "human," then there is absolutely NOT a consensus. Estimates range from 50,000+ years ago to a few thousands of years ago.

comment What's a list of theological terms to describe how one approaches the bible?
Also, the subject of this question is probably a better fit here than on BH, since it's about Biblical interpretation.

@rhetorician: List questions aren't on topic on BH, either.

@rhetorician: I never said there wasn't wisdom in literal Bible interpretation. I said this question isn't fit for SE.

comment Is there consensus on the age of human civilization?
@CharlesAlsobrook: No, Eclipse is saying that it depends on your definition of "civilization." Funny--those were even the exact words used!

comment What is the Catholic Church's attitude to the use of Viagra in marriage?
How can the church obligate someone to use a specific drug? And which church committee would be responsible for evaluating all new drugs to know if they ought to be mandated on their membership?

comment What's a list of theological terms to describe how one approaches the bible?
@pterandon: I would suggest, then, asking questions about Jerry Fallwell, or Fundamentalists, rather than asking for vague lists, which are off-topic/non-constructive.

@Mawia: People shouldn't be answering opinion-based questions here. They should be voting to close such questions.

comment Life of Jesus from the age of 12 to 30?
I might suggest changing this question to say "from the age of 12 to 30", since the bible clearly DOES mention Jesus at the age of 12.
