JS: Actually, the presence of 14 C in diamonds and DNA in dino bones severely constrains the upper limit of its age. That’s because they should long ago have disintegrated if the uniformitarian ‘dates‘ were right. Daniel B., United States , 14 December 2012 The level of precision throughout the article waxes and wanes. The title’s claim of “6,000 years” later on turns out to be 6150 years, which is actually only 6140 if you do the math. And the numbers being used are those that were passed on by Christ-rejecting Jews, the same ones who dated their times using a formula designed to attribute Daniel's messianic prophecies to Bar Kokhba.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the birth of Religion Online we are proud to share David P. Polk’s God of Empowering Love: A History and Reconception of the Theodicy Conundrum . Polk holds a PhD from Claremont and served his denomination, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in a variety of roles. In retirement he has produced a most important piece on the always difficult problem of evil in light of the power of God. Dr. Polk reconceives the basic question of the relation of power and goodness by asking what kind of power is appropriate to a loving God, rather than the traditional way of framing the issue as how can a powerful God also be a loving God.
