    Anyway, surfing should be exempt from religion. And nobody should be trying to get more people into surfing. Could we user religion to lure more people out of the water? That would be great!
    I fully condone this message. Especially about luring people out of the water. Riding waves is either for godless heathens or polytheistic earth/ocean worshipping savages. Except for capecodcdog, he's the man.

    Depending on which theory/model you subscribe to. Too much information is unknown to us currently to be making finite statements about the universe, or mulitverse, depending on your view.

    Im a big fan of m-theory and the ekpyrotic universe model but the is a large amount of evidence that supports the age of the current universe.

    Thanks Seldom. It's good to know I have a place in the line up.

    I was actually considering jumping in the fray, but I'm concerned my post could be as lengthy as a Pauline epistle.. but, what the heck, here's an abbreviated version of whats on my mind..

    Perhaps I'll throw out a few questions to ponder:
    1. What is the Gospel (or Good News)? Why is it Good News?
    2. Is there a Biblical mandate for it to be proclaimed? If so, what does this entail? What does this not entail? In other words, what means should be used to communicate it, and what means should not? Note: I realize a "Biblical Mandate" only applies to those who believe. It also makes sense that any message needs to be communicated in some fashion.

    One other thought. The New Testament suggests that the Gospel is an offense. Why is this so? I have thoughts on this: It proclaims there is a God, which forces divine accountability upon us, it proclaims man as failing short of the divine standard, and unable to rectify this situation by his own means, and thus put in us in position to depend on "foreign aid", which ruffles our pride. There are probably other reasons.

    The big problem, which I regret is when Christians themselves become the offense and stumbling block. The message and faith itself is difficult enough, without hypocrisy in the way. It grieves me when I hear stories like what DPSUP experienced, which certainly would leave a bad taste in anyone's mouth. Which is quite unfortunate.

    When people have such a negative experience, how then can they possibly "Taste and see that the Lord is good"?

    Peace, Bro's & I hope everyone gets a lil' swell..

    Remember this...... the church is not the building, it is the people that gather to talk about Gods Word.

    church= a group of Christians who come together regularly to worship, to learn, to serve God and others,and to pray for each other and help meet each others needs.

    Cool.

    I've been a big fan of cyclical theories since reading about Einstein's early ideas on oscillating universe theory back in high school.

    More recent cyclical theories being put forth based on the foundations of the ekpyrotic scenario seem to support infinite cyclical expansion and contraction of the "current" universe.
    We can estimate the age of the "current" universe as time since the last cyclical expansion event.

    However when defining the universe as everything that ever existed, exists or will exist, we cannot know the true age of the universe since cyclical theory suggests that the universal cycle is self sustaining and continues on into the future and past indefinitely. Although to be fair, the universal cycle prior to the current one may not have had the same dimensional attributes as our current universal state and thus cannot be measured as time.

    All of this is theory, and is sure to ruin the mood any dinner party faster than someone who takes a dump in the living room.

    We should start a new thread without the 24 pages of christian surfboard bribery talk.

    Got a better definition for you and your methods.

    Schil= Feeble minded, sheep-like person that tries too hard to sound important, but fails every time. Often found playing internet games from his parents basement, where he fantasizes about other men in homosexual acts, not realising these fantasies are a manifestation of his own suppressed desires.
