I like the archaeological dugs and stuff though, like where they found the ark on Mt Ararat or where they found the Dead Sea scrolls. But I'm also of the camp that doesn't believe the world is billions of years old, so I get uncomfortable when they start talking about things being dug up from "billions" of years ago.. Riiight
I think it's important, those discoveries, because then you have people like Bill Nye the science guy making big headlines about a fake ark, but hey, all these people are now asking what an "ark" is, so whatever it takes to teach others then, so be it
@ocap, do you ever find yourself looking back and thinking you could have done so much more if only you'd known more, sooner? I mean, I feel like I can look at the generation below me (I have a 23 YO stepdaughter) and have so much that they need to know, that I needed to know in my 20s, and i cant help feeling really frustrated that they're making the exact same mistakes I made. I find myself thinking if there were some way to get it to sink in, then we won't have another alcoholic divorcee with a rap sheet looking for some semblance of hope when she's 40.
Ugh, the first 40 years if childhood are the hardest, especially when you don't know God.
