Hi HaKa,

I'm no scientist but will try to answer your question as simply and best I can since I took the course.

Progressive creation is one of several competing root explanatory models for the universe. It postulates that science and the canon (e.g. scripture) are in harmony with each other. Unlike other competing creation models like young earth creationism (the one that sounds like you have had exposure to unfortunately as that is really mostly pseudo-science) and Gap Theory, progressive creationism accepts the scientific evidence of the age of the earth, the age of the universe, and science/the results of science in general.

It differs with non-creation models such as naturalistic evolution (e.g. secular humanism/neo-darwinism) and creation models such as theistic evolution (e.g. Roman Catholic Church) in the interpretation of scientific results.

Now all of these competing models and many other competing models form worldviews or how one looks at the world. Since these are at the heart of the modern culture wars; I thought I would look into them. And it has been a fascinating study.

Reasons was started by several Cal-Tech post-graduate professors and researchers with Phds from various universities headed by Dr. Hugh Ross. Today it has grown into the foremost progressive creation organization in the world and has member scientists from all over the world in almost every discipline imaginable.

See us VIPs tend to be open minded people. We look at NLP, eastern thought, western thought, etc.. The reason I think we are open minded is because we really want to look at everything and see what works.. find that which we can apply.. and to enhance our creativity so we look at things in different ways. But, regardless of what you believe, be sure to be able to show why you believe it and how it benefits you. Don't be afraid to stand on your own two feet and qualify information. My explanatory powers aren't the greatest in the world.. lol, but I hope this helps. Best wishes.

Hi LeftBehind!

You are right, I heard some pretty strange things.

And you are right too when saying one should be open to everything. After all, it is pretty difficult to disprove most things, and also doing something for one way for many centuries does not mean they are right. It only means they were done this way for some centuries.. like all the medical follies of medieval times e.g.

Thanks for the insight!

Personally, I have noticed, how for many years science has explained things with less and less involement of God, so I suppose this is the way it will be. Maybe at some point they will find him right at the beginning or not at all.. after all, if there was a God, it meant that all the Buddhists, Hinduist, Tribalist etc would be wrong, and that would be some billion people as well ! So I wonder whether Christianity has any monopoly on supernatural beings. :)

Best wishes!

Jane Roberts books "Seth speaks", " The nature of personal reality " can offer a great insight. It will enrich everybody's spiritual live.

I think you guys concentrate on the physical aspect (brain) too much as opposed to the human mind. Human mind is so much more powerful than the brain and don't you dare tell me those two things are the same ;)
