So as someone with your beliefs, what are you thoughts on science proving that dinosaurs walked the earth millions of years ago when the Bible says that the earth is only 6000yrs old?
I don't know. Science proving this and bible saying this, I can't answer that. Obviously dinosaurs walked this earth at one point, and the bible mentions a certain time line, but to me, time and dating are kind of, not the up most important. Maybe that's a grey area in the bible where it will confuse Christians, like it does for me anyways. I cant answer that, but before you think that there is no answer, I am sure someone could have a better answer for you, away from these boards.
Smoking weed, well, don't do it anymore, weed has it's negative effects if done too much. One joint, maybe comparable to one glass of wine? bah.. I don't know, I'll have a puff if someone's passing it 'round, but, I'm not buying it, waking up to it, or selling it. I don't know, call me a terrible Christian for doing so, but, everyone gets to know their tolerance to things after time, so bottom line is I try to stay responsible with these things.
I'm happy to get outside and enjoy nature while I can, but I fear for the future of humanity
