Janey dear:

Today, right now does God Know whether or not you have
been "Predestined" to Believe in Him?

Yes, the answer is Absolutely in the Affirmative.

Will you one day Believe?

There is no answer presently, because it doesn't
depend upon you. It depends on God.

Can HE bring your heart to the place where it becomes
enabled, by Divine Grace, to invite Him into your life?

Yes, He can.

The question remains, Are you willing to allow Him
to become your savior from sin and death?

Judging by your continued 'Know it all' attitude,
I suppose not.

Here, do this: Draw a circle on a piece of paper.
Place a DOT in the middle somewhere inside the circle.

The DOT is you, the circle is all you know and all
that you have heard, and all that you've been taught
by the people around you, mom, dad, acquaintances,
and the crap that they taught you at the government
schools.

The question is: What knowledge that you presently
do not know, that is just BEYOND the perimeter of
that Circle?

And, is it possible that just beyond your present
'understanding' much NEW knowledge is available to you
including the Truth of God's Existence and the Biblical
story of the Coming to the earth, of Jesus Christ, and
His Death, Burial, and Resurrection?

The answer once again is Yes.

You don't know it all, even though you 'think' you do.

Here's a prayer right now for you: "Dear Heavenly Father,
Would You please bring this manly man to open a Bible
and read Jeremiah 29:13 and to discover that all he has
to do to find YOU is to call out to YOU with all his heart.
And, if it is possible, to reveal YOUR Grace and Mercy
and save this seeker of Truth from eternal Death. In
the Most High name of YOUR SON, our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen."

Now sir, you have been prayed for.

Will you be able to receive or continue to mock God?

This May Help:

I wrote a little story on another thread, but it might
be just what you need:

----------------------

A little story:

College just began in the fall, and one new enthusiastic
student walked early into the Physics classroom.

He saw a spectacular model of the earth, the moon and the sun
on the professor's desk, and asked, "Hi Prof, that's really
cool! Who made that!"

The professor said, "No one, it just made itself."

"Come on man, that's impossible, what a complicated
design!"

"No, it just made itself."

Remind you of anything?

Make the model Life Size...

Atheists must manifest a philosophy that denies Intelligent
Design and theorize an evolutionary process through eons of time.

WHY?

Simply because the atheist, wishing to retain anonymity,
doesn't desire to know Who God is.

So they assert the ID peeps are stupid and unscientific
yet all the while attempting to verify a flawed and
illogical concept to maintain their unbelief.

Yet for me, a Believer, I love science because science
means KNOWLEDGE. And that knowing is seeing the very Hand
of the Creator!

IF and when you cross over into LIFE, you too will
see the Hand of the Creator in all that can be seen!
(And some that cannot be seen with Human Eyes.)

Faith is actually God's GIFT to us that we may always
have the choice to love and worship HIM - without ever
destroying our personal free moral agency.

But I assure you, that once you MEET HIM you
never want to leave HIM!! And it is He Himself Who
promises LIFE ETERNAL - Knowing HIM Forever!

Atheists send themselves to HELL simply because
they continued to refuse the Gift of Grace, Mercy
and forgiveness God offers in His Son's Death
on their behalf. A FREE GIFT!

FREE TO US, but it cost God His Only Son.
His Son agreed to come to the earth to save
those who were dead in trespasses and sin.
His Resurrection proves God is Real, Good and True!

Get it yet?

God Loves us and is WILLING to Reveal His Being to
anyone truly interested in Knowing Him.

Unless that person remains under the devil's LIE
which declares our Good Creator - A Bad Dude.

I love gravity, it always keeps my feet planted when I fly!

Hmm... nope, not working. I'm still an atheist (I've read the bible already).
PS: just to make sure I reread Jeremiah 29:13 again just now. Hmm....no, still nothing...
Will you be able to receive or continue to mock God?
For your convenience, I should mention that no Christian to whom I've posed this challenge has ever succeeded before. So, a more plausible explanation for what's really going on here is:

- there probably isn't anything "out there" or "in here", etc., to "believe in"
- prayer, therefore, is ineffective and accomplishes nothing.

Nothing fails consistently like prayer, which lends a little more weight to this analysis than yours.

Xcell and Dennis, care to take some more stabs at it?

Meanwhile, helicopter has prayed that I become a Christian, but so far no result. I even helped ya'lls god out by rereading the Jeremiah passage he suggested on my lunch hour, but..... bah, I'm still an atheist....

Any other takers? Ya'lls god is batting .000 so far.

In Closing the last of my three last tries:

Jesus Said:

20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.

Revelation 3:20

He's knockin, you ain't listenin...

So much for the power of the Christian god, then, huh? If it can't do something as trivially easy as convince a non-believer to believe...

Even something that minor is beyond Him? Really?

I have an alternative interpretation of this relentlessly failed non-result, but I think you already know what that is.

Maybe the problem is with the "knocking"?

You may be right on this jane.

He may NOT be knockin on your door.

Why?

Think about this a minute.

He is OMNISCIENT, meaning All SEEING.

All Knowing too.

Q: Is it at all possible that HE, the Lord God
Almighty already KNOWS you're never going to
allow HIM into your heart?

A: YES it is possible. (You perhaps are not Predestined to believe.)

Q: What if you never get SAVED by His Power
from sin, death and eternal fire?

A: This shall be answered for you at that special time. When its too late.

Good Luck with that. (I highly recommend you party your a$$ off.)

But please remember that This Life, for the Christian, is
as close as we will ever get to Hell. For the Non Believer
this life is as close as you ever get to Heaven!

Go read Pascal's Wager again.

I see - so you claim to know what goes on the mind of God? And aren't you attempting to speak for Him here? Isn't that a form of blasphemy?

Meanwhile, I'd be more inclined to think that He is simply impotent to do anything about disbelief. After all, disbelief would be the worst possible condition for His children, would it not? Hint: of course it would. And His greatest threat? Hint: absolutely. And the very condition he would be most motivated to use His considerable powers to deal with? Hint: yeppers.

But, here we are, hours later, and I'm still an atheist. Nothing has changed one way or the other.

Which tends to lead me towards a different analysis of the situation, the one I think you're already aware of.
But please remember that This Life, for the Christian, is
as close as we will ever get to Hell. For the Non Believer
this life is as close as you ever get to Heaven!
Exactly. As long as you guys are up there, and we're not up there, that's heaven for atheists! Well, I might miss Eagle a little bit, but...

There is twice that you say you sent me a message,,, ONLY GOD can receive (prayer), message!! NOT ME,,,
You try to twist the words around to make yourself feel better,, Do you really???? I think not,, your not happy with your life, and so you try to bring others down to your level,, There is a old saying,, Don't argue with a Idiot,, He will bring you down to his level, and beat you with experience!!! Good luck in this life,, as the next will not be so.... XGM/VGM
Well the next time your feeling like saying something really dumb like.
Just because you didn't get the answer you wanted,,, Doesn't mean that God didn't get the message,,
Or
So you didn't get a answer??? Yes you did,,, You just don't like the answer,, Period!!!
Maybe you'll take a moment to think not everyone else is delusional and hearing voices and seeing things. You have now experienced the same answer I got... Nothing which is what would one should expect from talking to yourself (prayer)

Scientists said Wednesday they had unravelled the oldest DNA ever retrieved from a Homo sapiens bone, a feat that sheds light on modern humans' colonisation of the planet.

A femur found by chance on the banks of a west Siberian river in 2008 is that of a man who died around 45,000 years ago, they said.

Teased out of collagen in the ancient bone, the genome contains traces from Neanderthals -- a cousin species who lived in Eurasia alongside H. sapiens before mysteriously disappearing.

Previous research has found that Neanderthals and H. sapiens interbred, leaving a tiny Neanderthal imprint of just about two percent in humans today, except for Africans.

The discovery has a bearing on the so-called "Out of Africa" scenario: the theory that H. sapiens evolved in East Africa around 200,000 years ago and then ventured out of the continent.

Dating when Neanderthals and H. sapiens interbred would also indicate when H. sapiens embarked on a key phase of this trek -- the push out of Eurasia and into South and later Southeast Asia.

The new study, published in the journal Nature, was headed by Svante Paabo, a renowned geneticist at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, who has pioneered research into Neanderthals.

- Neanderthal interbreeding -

The bone found at the Irtyush River, near the settlement of Ust'-Ishim, carries slightly more Neanderthal DNA than non-Africans today, the team found.

But it takes the form of relatively long strips, whereas Neanderthal DNA in our genome today has been cut up and dispersed in tiny sections as a result of generations of reproduction.

These differences provide a clue for a "molecular calendar", or dating DNA according to mutations over thousands of years.

Using this method, Paabo's team estimate interbreeding between Neanderthals and H. sapiens occurred 7,000 to 13,000 years before the Siberian individual lived -- thus no more than 60,000 years ago.

This provides a rough date for estimating when H. sapiens headed into South Asia, Chris Stringer, a professor at Britain's Natural History Museum, said in a comment on the study.

If today's Australasians have Neanderthal DNA, it is because their forebears crossed through Neanderthal territory and mingled with the locals.

"The ancestors of Australasians, with their similar input of Neanderthal DNA to Eurasians, must have been part of a late, rather than early, dispersal through Neanderthal territory," Stringer said in a press release.

"While it is still possible that modern humans did traverse southern Asia before 60,000 years ago, those groups could not have made a significant contribution to the surviving modern populations outside of Africa, which contain evidence of interbreeding with Neanderthals."

Anthropologists suggest a northern branch of Eurasians crossed to modern-day Alaska more than 15,000 years ago via an "ice bridge" that connected islands in the Bering Strait, thus enabling H. sapiens to colonise the Americas.

Now we see how we're mislead by science
the exploration of king tut is on going and no accurate info
on this boy king everyday the story change for what prove
the inaccurate of scientific finding.

King Tutankhamun's golden, mummified remains tell only a partial story of an ancient Egyptian boy king who died under mysterious circumstances.

But a new "virtual autopsy" of King Tut's body, shown in an upcoming BBC One documentary, has given historians a clearer picture of the young man's life -- and death.

Scientists used CT scans to recreate the first life-size image of Tutankhamun, one of the last rulers of the 18th Dynasty. King Tut ruled from 1333 B.C. until about 1323 B.C. Historians put his age at death at about 19.

Research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2010 showed that King Tut may have died of malaria, possibly after suffering an infection in his broken leg. As seen in the new virtual autopsy photo, Tutankhamun's left foot was also severely deformed; the inward angle suggests that he had a clubfoot. Researchers believe the boy king had Kohler disease, a rare bone disorder.

More than 100 walking sticks were found in Tut's tomb; historians originally thought they represented his power, but it's more likely Tut used them to get around.

Albert Zink, head of the Institute for Mummies and Icemen in Italy, told The Independent it would have been impossible for the king to have died while riding a chariot, as has been previously thought.

"We concluded it would not be possible for him, especially with his partially clubbed foot, as he was unable to stand unaided."

King Tut replica tomb opens to public

Scientists believe genetics and inherited diseases played a role in Tut's bad health because of inbreeding. A genetic analysis of his family's mummies suggests that his parents were siblings.

"Tutankhamun: The Truth Uncovered" will air Sunday on BBC. The Smithsonian will also be showing the documentary on November 2.
