Since you believe that verse, do you believe this one also? It states that at some point in time, all will be saved. There is no eternal hell.


quote:


Col 1:
20And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.


I do believe that verse, yes. But, you are interpreting it wrong. It is saying that all things are going to be brought back to Christ, which they will. But, there are many other verses that say that at this point, He will judge all make determinations about their eternal future based on whether or not they have believed in Jesus and repented of their sin.

I am not trying to engage in a theological debate on other issues here. I just added in Colossians 1:17 because even if the "God Particle" is found, Scripture makes room for things like this to be observed. Many say that the claims of Science disprove Scripture, but if you read the Bible rightly, you find that there is much more room for the claims of science than many think.

Finding the "God Particle" would not disprove God, just like finding the "God Gene" in our DNA would not. The "God Gene" just might be the place of the soul. At any rate, Scripture talks about a man's spirit and soul.

Once again, since everyone is ignoring my posts.

This particle is NOT, and I repeat, NOT CALLED THE "GOD PARTICLE." Damn people, do a little research.

It is called the Higgs Boson, or jokingly "the Champagne Bottle Boson." The only reason it is called the God Particle is because of the media and a book entitled "The God Particle: If the Universe is the Answer, What is the Question?". The book wasn't even supposed to be called that. It was supposed to be called the "Goddamn Particle," which, although I am not positive about this, I assume has to do with the fact that they cannot find this particle. It wasn't called that because the editor said no.

Seriously, do a little research and pay attention.

The existence of the planet? We have made major strides in science over the last 200 years, more specifically the last 50 years. That is a relatively short time period.

Yea, yea, shite like that just gets under my skin. I can't stand people who constantly look for something to be pissed off about.

I posted that info at least 3 times in this thread before that and people ignore it so they can keep bitching about something they know nothing about.

Alright, I gotta go study.

That's certainly true. It has the property of being boundlessly interpreted as allegorical each time science slices apart what once was held to be literal.

People be dumb.

Maybe directing this conversation back to the OP, the results they are talking about are certainly not conclusive and are no where near being publishable. If they have reproducible results that make it pass the peer review process, I'll believe they have found the Higgs Boson, but until then I'm remaining skeptical...as all scientists should.

Sorry. Thanks for the further info. I was confusing it with something else. And, I did not read the entire thread, so thanks for restating.

Nothing allegorical about the correct interpretation at all. Scripture is clear on how that should be interpreted if you read more than one verse and interpret it in the way you want to to serve your purposes.

Science has not sliced apart much of anything, actually. The answer is in the text itself. Of course, there has been no shortage of people holding up a couple of verses and saying, "Aha! This is what the Bible means!" while ignoring other verses that give a better interpretation. That has been happening for centuries. Humans are fallible and prideful that way. No real surprise there.

You just make all sorts of assumptions, such as all things are finite, that there must have been a time when nothing exists, etc.

Even if what you were doing was entirely logical, it still doesn't at all prove your god, Catholicism, etc.

Compared to how recently our species first developed things as essential as tools, written language, agriculture, etc. We've been here for such a short period of time in deep time, and yet we have uncovered such an enormous amount...

Hell...the Wright Bros first created a machine for flight at the turn of the last century. Less than 70 years later man was walking on the moon!

What will we know...what will we be able to do 100 years from now?

It is popularly called the God Particle, but of course it has nothing to do with religion.

The book wasn't even supposed to be called that.

I read that too recently, but wasn't sure if the story was factually correct or not. It sounded implausible.

Isn't that the thing that makes tiny black holes? I think I'd rather them build that on Mars.

Announcement was kind of a let down. They're "closing in on it," but haven't found it yet.
