Yeah, that's not the first time I've heard doubts about string theory. Here's a link with some interesting info about how modern physics shows evidence for God. http://godevidence.com/2012/02/god-is-real/ It always makes me laugh when I hear atheists claim believers are anti-science.

I just love how they showed the argument as a conversation about how to raise the kids. That's usually a conversation about religion.   :laughing7:

I wonder what Sheldon's explanation of DNA would be.

His explanation of DNA would be, "Sheldon is awesome."

Yeah, like his explanation for everything. This is what really trips me out about modern physics. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wEzRdZGYNvA

Collosians 1:20

kai      di             autou    apokatallaxai
and    through    Him       to reconcile

ta      panta    eis     auton    eirEnopoiEsas
the    all          into    Him       making peace

dia            tou    haimatos    tou       staurou
through    the    blood         of the    cross

autou     di             autou    eite           ta
of Him    through    Him       whether    the

epi    tes     ges       eite    ta     en    tois
on     the     earth    or      the    in     the

ouranois.
heavens.

I don't see the word "things" in there anywhere.
Yet most bible translations say "all things."
If it does mean all things and not just all people, then:
What about rattlesnakes?
And mosquitoes?
And extinct species?
What about neanderthals?
And wooly mammoths?

First we have "to reconcile the all" and then we have some elipsis:  "the [all] on the earth" and "the [all] in the heavens"

This reconciling has to do with all beings which are "estranged and enemies" to God (Col.1:21), who drop their enmity and become friends with God.
Just because God says He will save all mankind
does not necessarily mean He won't.
