A look into Sy Garte

A look into Sy Garte


Sy Garte is biochemist and published more than 200 scientific publications in genetics, epidemiology, the environment and other areas. He has been a Professor of Public Health and Environmental Health Sciences at New York University, UMDNJ, and the University of Pittsburgh. “Part of my own faith is the belief that God’s truth is the only truth, and that we can grow in our understanding of that truth through scientific and theological work.” Science and God shouldn’t be treated as enemies. Instead, we should see the beauty of the marriage of science and faith. “Scripture can appear to be self-contradicting, as can science—let alone the two with each other. All this means is that we haven’t gotten all of it right yet.” There is clearly a sense of purpose in the way living creatures behave, and we now can see some reflection of this sense in some of the new mechanisms of bio- logical variation. Purpose is still purpose, whether it springs from the genome of E. coli, the chromosomes of a chordate, the mind of humans, or the hand of God. The new EES alternatives to neo-Darwinism are not theistic, but the opening up of evolutionary theory to embrace the fundamental complexity of biological systems may very likely contain pointers to the majesty of God’s creation, including the diver- sity of life on Earth.5--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. this podcast:

Is SJ Thomason Business MGT Ph.D., Right?8 Questions Atheists Cannot Plausibly Answer… I have YET to see a better explanation for the minimal facts surrounding Jesus' resurrection than #JESUS RESURRECTED.  #Christianity #TruthReigns What explains our objective morality?2. If an atheist’s position is that the universe is the product of chance and necessity (instead of the product of intelligence), how can he or she explain the fact that the universe is structured rationally, logically and with mathematical precision and predictability?3. If atheists adhere to the belief that the purpose of human life is merely to procreate and survive, is it possible to determine that human life has any more value than animal life – since animals share the same basic purpose?4. Why have so many atheists determined that the life of a fetus in a mother’s womb is less valuable than the life of his or her mother? Age discrimination? When is a human considered a human to them?5. How can atheists explain the ordering of our DNA?6. How can atheists explain the force that powered the Big Bang of the universe?7. How can atheists explain our desire for heavenly joy?8.

Lobby smuggling scandal[edit]Main article: Hobby Lobby smuggling scandalOne of the ancient clay tabletsshowing Cuneiform scriptwhich Hobby Lobby smuggledIn 2017, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement seized thousands of clay tablets and bullas from Hobby Lobby.[47] The artifacts in question had likely been stolen from Iraq. Hobby Lobby was found to have used couriers that had willfully used methods to conceal the provenance of the allegedly stolen items. The museum released a statement that these artifacts were never owned by the Museum of the Bible and were never intended to be part of their collection. In 2018, the items were returned to Iraq, and the company paid a $3 million fine.[48]Scott Thumma, a dean and professor of sociology of religion at Hartford Seminary, defended Hobby Lobby during the smuggling controversy. Thuma stated: "Many of the collections of our great national museums and universities are full of the very objects that Hobby Lobby is being fined for smuggling and are seldom required to return or pay compensation."[49] This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. this podcast:
“I sparked a movement while I was bored at 2 a.m,” Roberts told the L.A. Times. In July 1947 a rancher by the name of Mac Brazel found strange metal strewn over his land in New Mexico. Brazel took this debris to the authorities in Roswell. The commanding officer at the time Colonel Blanchard was also intrigued and he ordered an investigation. After collecting the shrapnel and other evidence off of Brazel’s property, the first Army command at Roswell issued a press release stating that they had recovered some type of “flying disk”  Conclusion Area 51 is one of the most widely recognized secrets in the United States. While only a select few know for sure what happens in this facility, many believe that there are supernatural events and government tests that would change the way we feel about the universe. Will Area 51 conspiracy theories last forever or will the United States government eventually come clean about everything that happens behind the barbed wired fences? The universe cannot be younger than the objects contained inside of it. By determining the ages of the oldest stars, scientists are able to put a limit on the age. The life cycle of a star is based on its mass. More massive stars burn faster than their lower-mass siblings. A star 10 times as massive as the sun will burn through its fuel supply in 20 million years, while a star with half the sun's mass will last more than 20 billion years. The mass also affects the brightness, or luminosity, of a star; more massive stars are brighter. [Related: The Brightest Stars: Luminosity & Magnitude] Known as Population III stars, the first stars were massive and short-lived. They contained only hydrogen and helium, but through fusion began to create the elements that would help to build the next generation of stars. Scientists have been hunting for traces of the first stars for decades. "Those stars were the ones that formed the first heavy atoms that ultimately allowed us to be here," David Sobral, an astronomer from the University of Lisbon in Portugal, said in a statement. Sobral was part of a team that identified a bright galaxy with evidence of Population III stars. "The detection of dust in the early universe provides new information on when the first supernovae exploded and hence the time when the first hot stars bathed the universe in light," ESO officials said in a statement. "Determining the timing of this 'cosmic dawn' is one of the holy grails of modern astronomy, and it can be indirectly probed through the study of early interstellar dust." Early stars aren't the only way to place limits on the age of the universe. Dense collections of stars known as globular clusters have similar characteristics. The oldest known globular clusters have stars with ages that appear to be between 11 and 14 billion years old. The wide range comes from problems in pinpointing the distances to the clusters, which affects estimates of brightness and thus mass. If the cluster is farther away than scientists have measured, the stars would be brighter, thus more massive, thus younger than calculated.

( – A new analysis from Georgetown University that attempts to document the economic value of religion in U.S. society found that the faith sector is worth $1.2 trillion, more than the combined revenue of the top 10 technology companies in the country, including Apple, Amazon, and Google.The study, The Socioeconomic Contributions of Religion to American Society: An Empirical Analysis, makes three estimates of the quantitative economic value of faith to American society.The first estimate took into account only the revenues of faith-based organizations, which came to $378 billion annually. The second estimate, $1.2 trillion, included the fair market value of goods and services provided by religious organizations and included contributions of businesses with religious roots.The third, higher-end, estimate of $4.8 trillion takes into account the household incomes of religiously affiliated Americans, assuming that they conduct their affairs according to their religious beliefs. around the globe know Pastor Benny Hinn as a noted evangelist, teacher, and the author of best-selling books including Good Morning, Holy Spirit, Prayer That Gets Results, Blood in the Sand, and Lamb of God.His TV program, This Is Your Day, is among the world’s most-watched Christian programs, seen daily in 200 countries.His popular website and ministry app reach millions of people every single day in areas of the world that may not otherwise hear about the Gospel.Yet there is much more to the story of the man, and his ministry, who has impacted the world for more than four decades with the life-saving and miracle-working message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.BeginningsBenny Hinn was born on December 3, 1952, in the port city of Jaffa (part of modern Tel Aviv), Israel, where his family had set up residence as immigrants to Palestine from Greece. In 1968, not long after the Six-Day War, he moved with his family to Canada.In February 1972, Benny Hinn’s life took on an entirely new meaning when he surrendered his heart and life to Jesus Christ as high school friends prayed with him. Soon afterward, he was called to minister the Gospel.In April 1974, young Benny received a vision of people falling into a roaring inferno and heard the words:if you do not preach, every soul that falls will be your responsibility!On December 7, 1974, four days after his 22nd birthday, Benny Hinn first stood behind a pulpit to preach the Gospel—his life-long stuttering problem suddenly healed! From that moment, he would fearlessly seek to fulfill our Lord’s Great Commission.Pastor Benny Hinn has preached the Gospel face to face and through television to more than a billion people. Through Miracle Healing Services, conferences, TV broadcasts, the Internet, printed page, and audio-video recordings, this evangelist’s straightforward, uncompromising message of God’s love has inspired hundreds of millions to a personal relationship and deeper walk with the Lord Jesus Christ.Pastor Benny’s ministry is also engaged in work with My Father’s House children’s homes in Mexico and Asia, as well as with feeding programs, crisis relief, and hospital care. For years, his ministry has provided food, clothing, shelter, education, and religious training for thousands around the globe (including partnerships with numerous missionary and relief agencies).--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. this podcast:

Refuting J. Warner Wallace


Thank you to the person on twitter for submitting your request for me to discuss the points from another person, rather I'd really like to discuss your's not J. Warner Wallace, who is a gimmicky scammer. I do truly appreciate your request though and I gave my best rebuttal (rant) for what I could do with wingin'it at 11:pm at night. I look forward to your response and maybe hope to do an interview so there is another side of dialogue.  I wish you the best, I don't expect you to just believe what I say and hope you will consider it as you do anything else and truly test what you know. All the best in the future and please listen to the last portion of the podcast, there is a message to you there. About the last 5 mins or so. I AM the SON of GOD says so right here ---->‘Adam, which was the son of God.’ (Luke 3:38) <-----J. Warner Wallace is a Dateline featured cold-case homicide detective, popular national speaker and best-selling author. He continues to consult on cold-case investigations while serving as a Senior Fellow at the Colson Center for Christian Worldview. He is also an adjunct professor of apologetics at Biola University and a faculty member at Summit Ministries. J. Warner became a Christ-follower at the age of thirty-five after investigating the claims of the New Testament gospels using his skill set as a detective. He eventually earned a Master’s Degree in Theological Studies from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary.J. Warner has appeared on television and radio, explaining the role that evidence plays in the Christian definition of “faith” and defending the historicity of Jesus, the reliability of the Bible and the truth of the Christian worldview. Jim also speaks at churches, retreats and camps as he seeks to help people become confident Christian case makers. J. Warner’s book, Cold-Case Christianity, provides readers with ten principles of cold case investigations and utilizes these principles to examine the reliability of the gospel eyewitness accounts. In God’s Crime Scene, he investigates eight pieces of evidence in the universe to make the case for God’s existence. In Forensic Faith, J. Warner makes the case for a more reasonable, evidential Christian faith.J. Warner’s professional investigative work has received national recognition; his cases have been featured more than any other detective on NBC’s Dateline, and his work has also appeared on CourtTV and Fox News. He also appears on television as an investigative consultant (most recently on truTV) and had a role in God’s Not Dead 2, making the case for the historicity of Jesus. J. Warner was awarded the Police and Fire Medal of Valor “Sustained Superiority” Award for his continuing work on cold-case homicides, and the CopsWest Award after solving a 1979 murder. Relying on over two decades of investigative experience, J. Warner provides his readers and audiences with the tools they will need to investigate the claims of Christianity and make a convincing case for the truth of the Christian worldview.

This is an update about being an atheist 1 yr in total.  Thanks to all who submitted questions and comments and continued the discussion beyond the Podcast! It is truly an amazing experience to see more discussion come about on such a difficult topic. And thanks to all my supporters to whom I would feel lost without!How do you explain your atheism to friends and family?How do you explain it to children?Can you talk about it at work?Has it changed daily routines?If family or friends are flaunting religion, how do you react? What if they are completely different behind closed doors, away from the social scene?How did family react to you coming out about it?What choices did you make with God as a consideration vs now not having that authority to rely on?Does it burst everyone’s bubble when you talk about your atheism?Isn’t atheism a religion?You must be an evolutionist and that takes a significant amount of faith.This question submitted by someone named mom wants to know, Is your life any better?

Krishna (around 3000 B.C.)A Hindu God.Born after his mom was impregnated by a God.Angels, wise men, and shepherds were at his birth.Guess what gifts they gave him? Gold, frankincense, and myrrh.A jealous bad guy ordered the slaughter of all newborns, just as happened with Jesus.Baptized in a river.Performed miracles, including raising the dead and healing the deaf and blind.Rose from the dead to ascend to heaven.Is expected to return to earth someday to fight the “Prince of Evil.”5.

Todays interview is with Jill (New Jersey) who speaks about her experience at touchtone, involving a manager and the effects caused by workplace bullying. You can find her blog at and her facebook at The WBI Definition of Workplace BullyingWorkplace Bullying is repeated, health-harming mistreatment of one or more persons (the targets) by one or more perpetrators. It is abusive conduct that is : Threatening, humiliating, or intimidating, or Work interference — sabotage — which prevents work from getting done, or Verbal abuseThis definition was used in the 2014 WBI U.S. Workplace Bullying Survey.  Its national prevalence was assessed. Read the Survey results.Workplace Bullying... Is driven by perpetrators' need to control the targeted individual(s). Is initiated by bullies who choose their targets, timing, location, and methods. Is a set of acts of commission (doing things to others) or omission (withholding resources from others) Requires consequences for the targeted individual Escalates to involve others who side with the bully, either voluntarily or through coercion. Undermines legitimate business interests when bullies' personal agendas take precedence over work itself. Is akin to domestic violence at work, where the abuser is on the payroll.Read more about Bullying in comparison to Schoolyard Bullying, Workplace Violence and Incivility. Synonyms that reflect the seriousness of bullying: Psychological Violence, Psychological Harassment, Personal Harassment, 'Status-Blind' Harassment, Mobbing, Emotional Abuse at WorkEuphemisms intended to trivialize bullying and its impact on bullied people: Incivility, Disrespect, Difficult People, Personality Conflict, Negative Conduct, Ill TreatmentNot calling bullying "bullying," in order to avoid offending the sensibilities of those who made the bullying possible, is a disservice to bullied individuals whose jobs, careers, and health have been threatened as the result. Tom Engelhardt said it wisely when he said, "Words denied mean analyses not offered, things not grasped, surprise not registered, strangeness not taken in, all of which means that terrible mistakes are repeated, wounding ways of acting in the world never seriously reconsidered. The words' absence chains you to the present, to what's accepted and acceptable."The Relation to Domestic ViolenceBeing bullied at work most closely resembles the experience of being a battered spouse. The abuser inflicts pain when and where she or he chooses, keeping the target (victim) off balance knowing that violence can happen on a whim, but dangling the hope that safety is possible during a period of peace of unknown duration. The target is kept close to the abuser by the nature of the relationship between them -- husband to wife or boss to subordinate or co-worker to co-worker.--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. this podcast:

There are preachers that are asking for the execution of the LGBTQ on a day memorializing the Pulse Night Club shooting and celebration of LGBTQ coming out and being accepted. They use the same Bible to justify their actions. I would say this is enough for concern and they should be taken seriously and put in jail for conspiracy to harm and terrorize others.  Yet nothing is being done due to the "freedom of religion" clause.  If it is not a positive impact onto another, it needs to be learned that it is then not ok and shouldn't be in a fictitious God's eye's either.  It's a hard topic to discuss and just a disclaimer as I say many times in the recording, I am not trying to single out any one party or place one above the other.  I am attempting to discuss this on a level playing field and not beat around the bush.  Let me know your thoughts as this topic will likely continue and there will be more to discuss later on after this event if anything does or does not happen.

Peter Kreeft, Ph.D., is a professor of philosophy at Boston College. He loves his five grandchildren, four children, one wife, one cat, and one God. His 75 books include: Handbook of Christian Apologetics Christianity for Modern Pagans, Fundamentals of the FaithBelief in God, according to atheists, is irrational, illogical, and dumb. Belief that the universe created itself is, they say, intelligent, rational, and based in science. This is simply false. Nothing can create itself. Everything has a cause -- including the universe. That cause, argues Peter Kreeft, professor of philosophy at Boston College, is God, the "unmoved mover." Belief in God, as Kreeft shows, is more rational than belief in nothing. Logic, science, and reason, support God. Atheism, as you'll see, is far more steeped in blind faith than is belief.Mark Spence is the Vice President of Outreach at Living Waters and the Dean of the online School of Biblical Evangelism, with over 18,000 students enrolled since its inception. A popular speaker at conferences and universities, he also cohosts season five of the television program “Way of the Master,” engaging skeptics and equipping Christians in evangelism and apologetics. A former assistant pastor, Mark is the Producer and Editor of several Living Waters films, and he and his wife, Laura, homeschool their five children.Atheism is one thing: A lack of belief in gods.Atheism is not an affirmative belief that there is no god nor does it answer any other question about what a person believes. It is simply a rejection of the assertion that there are gods. Atheism is too often defined incorrectly as a belief system. To be clear: Atheism is not a disbelief in gods or a denial of gods; it is a lack of belief in gods. Older dictionaries define atheism as “a belief that there is no God.” Clearly, theistic influence taints these definitions. The fact that dictionaries define Atheism as “there is no God” betrays the (mono)theistic influence. Without the (mono)theistic influence, the definition would at least read “there are no gods.” This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. this podcast:

EXPLICIT! Dr. Tommy Mitchell holds an MD from Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and had a thriving medical practice for 20 years before pursuing creation ministry fulltime. Since 2005, Dr. Mitchell has served as a speaker and author for Answers in Genesis.(MS?) Bryan Osborne holds a master’s degree in education from Lee University. Bryan taught Bible history in a public school for 13 years, and has been teaching Christians to defend their faith for nearly 20 years. Bryan is now a speaker and author for Answers in Genesis.Dinosaurs became extinct about 65 million years ago. This extinction event occurred between the Cretaceous and Tertiary periods and wiped out about 50 percent of all other organisms then living on the planet.Because the dinosaurs died out in a relatively short period of time, scientists surmise that some sort of global disaster had caused this massive extinction event. Some extinction theories include an increase in volcanism,a change in the climate, the movement of continents and the consumption of dinosaur eggs by evolving mammalian species.In the 1980s, Luis Alvarez proposed one of the most probable theories for the extinction. He believed that an extraterrestrial object such as an asteroid or meteorite crashed on Earth, throwing up debris into the atmosphere. This debris effectively blocked out much of the sun's light, causing plants to die worldwide, which led to the extinction of many species unable to cope with this climate change. million years ago, the last of the non-avian dinosaurs went extinct. So too did the giant mosasaurs and plesiosaurs in the seas and the pterosaurs in the skies. Plankton, the base of the ocean food chain, took a hard hit. Many families of brachiopods and sea sponges disappeared. The remaining hard-shelled ammonites vanished. Shark diversity shriveled. Most vegetation withered. In all, more than half of the world's species were obliterated. 165 million years, dinosaurs dominated land, sea, and sky. Long-necked Brachiosauruses lumbered along like mobile four-story buildings. Tyrannosaurus rex chased down prey with 50 to 60 teeth as big as bananas. Mosasaurs stretching 55 feet from snout to tail terrorized the seas, consuming everything they could catch.But 66 million years ago, the world’s climate drastically changed. Dinosaurs had thrived in the warm temperatures and mild weather of the Mesozoic era. All of a sudden, the Earth became much colder and darker. Plants died and food became scarce. All the dinosaurs—except for the ancestors of modern birds—and three quarters of the creatures living on Earth went extinct. want to make us believe that dinosaurs became extinct 65 million years ago to support their theory of   evolution.  But if this were true, there would never have been any interaction between men and dinosaurs.  So are there any?  Yes! There are many accounts of dragons in folklore all around the world.  There's even a dinosaur account in the Bible.  We read about a dinosaur in Job chapter 40: This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. this podcast:
