    [__ Prayer __] I Am Really Starting to Worry

    Diabetes often causes numbness or pain in the lower extremities. It does something to the nerves down there. It can be very serious, in some cases leading to loss of limbs.

    I beat an addiction with a prayer request from this very forum not long ago.

    I Think That There Is Other Intelligent Life Out There After All

    I think it was Howard Storm that asked this very question to Jesus. The Lord told him that many other species existed on other worlds, all much more advanced than humans. He was even shown images of very strange beings. His sacrifice to our world was in fact a special save, apparently we needed...

    [__ Science __ ] Lightning

    You are right, there is a leader that travels from the cloud to the ground, just before the main bolt that shoots upward in most lightning strikes.

    [__ Science __ ] Lightning

    I'm not an expert on this (and I think there are some on this forum that are), but I know that all substances can conduct electrical charges to some degree. There is no true "perfect insulator", but we tend to divide materials into conductors and non-conductors based on practical circumstances...

    The Gun Thread

    Well, the ol' Box-o-truth gives some surprising results that defy conventional wisdom. The .223 sailed right through 12 pine boards and was still going, even though it did tumble as designed. 00 buck only made it through 8 boards of sheetrock (a lighter material), with most of the pellets...

    The Gun Thread

    I like the idea of a shotgun for primary home defense. Close range "stopping" power, but rapidly loses lethality over longer distances (say 50 yards or so). Nice setup for urban protection whilst mimimizing collateral damage risk.

    Very good. I'm basically sticking with "figurative".

    [ Young Earth ] Young Earth?

    Back to the original question, there are actually two non-literal interpretations of Genesis that I entertain. One is the reference to "Heaven days" already mentioned, and the other is that "day" as used is not a literal day of 24 hours, but a lyrical way of referring to long eras of time (in...
