Angels & Evolution
Click To Read This
The supernatural origins of humanity is deduced from angels, our body / soul / spirit, and Jesus material / supernatural miracles. In response to atheist Richard Dawkin's statement: "DNA neither knows nor cares. DNA just is." River Out Of Eden. pg 133 : There's questions such as : Where did all the information come from for DNA/RNA, what is energy and Life, what are the strong and weak forces, what constitutes intellect / mind / personality - as is purported to also be required of angels, and that of our own body / soul / spirit, what are instincts intuition and inspiration, what is imagination and choice, what is language and why does it differ so widely, how do angels employ language, how does the brain work, quite a lot of profound mysteries that evolution glosses over. It's deduced that we were created supernaturally not by naturalism's random materialistic processes. If you explain angels as having their origins through supernatural laws ("without having any regard for physics, reality, etc.") no longer is "naturalism" the only laws at work in the universe. A precedent is set which can apply for the origins of humanity, our body, soul & spirit too. Spiritual people, and those who assume the existence of Angels, cannot have it both ways with a false dichotomy that argues for a purely naturalistic origins of humanity - theistic evolution - while accepting we have a spirit, mind, intelligence, personality - which originated like that of angels. No longer is "naturalism" the only laws at work in the universe, to explain our body, soul, and spirit requires supernatural origins for humanity.

Chatting with Jesus - If A J Miller (or anyone else) says they allegedly speak or have spoken as for God / gods or Jesus (anti/pseudo-Christs) one might ask if this speech is supernaturally inspired, as testified to by the modern day equivalent of Bible numerics and possibly? equidistant letter sequences (ELS - wikipedia) ?

Aliens, UFOs - Are We Alone In The Universe ? Click To Read This
A review of Cosmology and origins unlike many others.
Can angels or aliens travel up to or faster than light speed ? Are wormholes, subspace, hyperspace, slipstreams, corridors or conduits, warp speeds, trans-warp, folding of space, bridges, portals and gateways, or inter-dimensional travel real ? If any of them are real, what would that tell us about the age of the universe ? If alien / UFO advocates believe it is possible for angels or aliens to span the heavens (the universe) within very short time frames then the universe has a mechanism useful for rapid interstellar travel (which would have existed before any creatures did, for the universe's own existence & creation) and dating the universe by implication that billions of light years is the yardstick need not be correct. The universe need not necessarily be old in such a scenario, since it can be spanned quickly. Inter-dimensional and material beings would rely on those dimensions or mechanisms of our universe to rapidly move around - which would have existed before any creatures did, for the universe's own existence & creation. (Again, if you explain angels as having their origins through supernatural laws ("without having any regard for physics, reality, etc.") no longer is "naturalism" the only laws at work in the universe. A precedent is set which can apply for the origins of humanity and the universe.) And, if any faster-than-light phenomena exists, that would become the benchmark for measuring the size of the universe, rather than the current light speed (including for any "communications" alleged to be over light years distance, where question and reply round-trip happen in real time, not 4+ years at a time - demons disguised as aliens). It is thought, "old" aliens could not exist in a universe dated by the existence of it's own rapid travel mechanism. Panspermia must be out too. Any events seem likely to be low-life (abduction) fallen angels, reported to be masquerading as "old" grays.

Also, from a Biblical reference point, the angels & Christ? that met with Abraham on the way to Sodom had a meal with Abraham, they were part of that time+space (Genesis 18:2-8). Genesis 19:10 "But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door." They were part of that time+space to physically handle Lot - yet had come from heaven.

God And Stephen Hawking - Whose Design Is It Anyway ? by Dr John Lennox. Heavy weights in philosophy get down to the facts in cosmological views. A real eye opener, in lay person's language.
Without biblically true Holy Spirit inspired spiritual 'discernment' and accompanying faith, one can not know for 'certain' that God, an afterlife, heaven or hell exist; we aim for being 'beyond reasonable doubt' (Christian Apologetics N Geisler pp 128, 293, 314, 315) (Tit 2:13 looking for the blessed hope). Evidences seen here and at other philosophical / apologetics websites give us confidence (have you considered Compelling Info.) God gives enough proof to satisfy any reasonable person who is willing to submit to the truth, but not enough to convince the proud skeptic who is bent on unbelief. Renowned Harvard law professor Simon Greenleaf observed: “Christianity does not profess to convince the perverse and head-strong, to bring irresistible evidence to the daring and profane, to vanquish the proud scorner, and afford evidences from which the careless and perverse cannot possibly escape. This might go to destroy man’s responsibility. All that Christianity professes, is to propose such evidences as may satisfy the meek, the tractable, the candid, the serious inquirer” (The Testimony of the Evangelists Examined by the Rules of Evidence). (An Unshakeable Faith p 17)

There are testimonies about raising people back to life who were dead for a notable amount of time, and remarkable healing's (those being less controversial than most are), which most likely could not have been done without the power of God through His Spirit (for those specific examples).
See Daniel Ekechukwu video.
Daniel Ekechukwu claims personally verfied by leader.
The video appears to show a death certificate or mortuary notice from Dr Josse. He claims to have used a stethoscope and there were no sounds from Daniel's heart, his pupils were fixed and dilated. The mortician also confirms that Daniel was stiff and lifeless, and so he intially began the poisonous embalming procedure. Others thought he was a corpse too.
This isn't the same as other near death experiences. It's doubtful that other religions have a comparable example, can someone cite one with details that are as good as this - or only lesser NDE's ?
What is the time limit for one's heart to be stopped, (with pupils fixed and dilated and body stiff so as to intially begin embalming), before the damage of that overrides testing for a flatline with an EEG ? There must be a limit to how long the heart can be stopped before brain and maybe heart damage becomes significant.
Do you think if they'd spent a notable amount of time driving around the area, (with what a number of people believed to be a corpse), that Daniel would have suffered significant brain damage since his heart had stopped - as attested by the doctor and mortician, and he was stiff so as to begin intial embalming ? Yet he revived, back to perfect health, despite previously having crashed into the steering wheel and windscreen at some speed (which later caused breathing difficulties serious enough to warn his wife of impending death).

By supposed lack of evidence, one
or two assume we know much that there is to know about science and the universe. There's
no doubt more yet to be discovered that explains the nature of the
strong and weak forces rather than merely acknowledging their effects.
It's not like science has a theory of everything, science really is still
relatively recent on the timeline of human achievements.
As we all know, we live by the axiom that the truth, and the devil, is invariably in the details, the bleeding edge of human knowledge and wisdom, for which critical thinking and learning proves essential, as long as it doesn't contravene biblical truths (have you considered Compelling Info.) As is commonly said, a little knowledge (or even a good amount) can be a dangerous thing. As far as the so called 'science' of origins is concerned, the jury ever remains out on partial evidence, with profound mysteries, for which sampling errors and successive approximation dominate.
Something that may clarify our thinking on the so called 'science' of origins is to point to the claim that human knowledge increases exponentially over time (for example try and read all the books and websites on offer). It's perhaps part of the reason that God tells us we walk by faith more than by sight. It's virtually impossible to know the majority of details in many subjects of science, no one can be an all knowing mathematician / biologist / microbiologist / chemist / physicist / nuclear physicist / astrophysicist / philosopher and all the fields of science. Humanity never will know it all, there are many profound mysteries; though there are some, in the so called 'science' of orgins that have been able to get away with faking it for too long.
Where did all the information come from for DNA/RNA, what is energy and Life, what are the strong and weak forces, what constitutes intellect / mind / personality as is purported to also be required of angels, and that of our own body / soul / spirit, what are instincts intuition and inspiration, what is imagination and choice, what is language and why does it differ so widely, how do angels employ language, how does the brain work, quite a lot of profound mysteries that evolution glosses over.
Another question is, how on earth did God confuse the tongues at the tower of Babel ? (eSword Genesis 11:9) There's a real mystery about human language that humanity doesn't really comprehend yet. It has been suggested that there may be a real connection (perhaps supernatural) between language and the things of God.

Mat 16:13 And coming into the parts of Caesarea Philippi, Jesus asked His disciples, saying, Who do men say Me to be, the Son of Man? Mat 16:14 And they said, Some say, John the Baptist; some, Elijah; and others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets. Mat 16:15 He said to them, But who do you say I am? Mat 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, You are the Christ(Messiah), the Son of the living God.
The best deceptions often contain a lot of truth, interlaced subtly with error/s, as many scientists usually know - including when the sampling errors and approximations of statistics are involved. It comes down to whether we're going to trust / put our faith in God, or Fog - the all seeing eye's theories [full of holes and many unanswered profound mysteries described above].

Dating in Archaeology: Radiocarbon & Tree-Ring Dating
"The coal deposits are said by evolutionists to have formed over millions of years, but they contain the fossils of perfectly-preserved skeletons, including two-ton dinosaurs, which would have had to have been covered almost instantly. In 1878, miners working in the Mons coalfield in Belgium discovered 39 iguanodon dinosaur skeletons, many of them complete, at a depth of 322 meters. They were 10 meters long and weighed two tons each. “For their bodies to be rapidly buried would require rates of deposition thousands or even millions of times greater than the average 0.2 millimeters per year proposed by uniformitarians” (Milton, Shattering the Myths, p. 84)."

"Adam, the first man, was created in the sixth day, lived through the seventh day, and into at least a portion of the eighth day. If these days were long geologic periods of millions of years in length, we have the interesting situation of Adam having lived in a portion of one age, through the whole of another age, and into at least a portion of a third age, in which case he was many millions of years old when he finally died!"
