Believe me, 99.9% would agree about the dragon...

Me deciding whether or not dragons actaully existed in the Bible is not that important to me. That is not a major factor in me being a Christian.

I do care about my faith and wrestle with issues all the time. I do think for myself, but I believe the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Word of God more than anything the world could ever teach me. But I do not spend weeks determining whether or not I think dinosaurs existed in the Bible. I dont believe it is that important.

You bring up the idea of research, which once again, I question. Research will not prove creationism or Christianity, folks.

I'm losing track of the idea of this thread. People who believe in creationism said why, and people who believe in evolution stated why. The latter crowd seems intent on getting the former crowd to prove creationism, which neither I nor anyone else can do. What do you want me to say? Can creationism be proven? No, of course not. Is there more scientific evidence reinforcing evolution as opposed to creationism? Yes, there sure is. I really dont get what you all want. This is turning into an assault on Christianity.
It's not becoming an attack on Christianity, it's become an attack on flawed thinking.

Many Christians know that their faith and science can coexist, that there is no contradicition.

You have to look at the concrete evidence that the world has offered you and see how it works with your faith.

Ignoring it, just makes one look ignorant.

Actually apparently dragons did exist, just like unicorns, but they just didn't make it on the ark.

I found proof:

Remember Son of Godzilla? The baby Godzilla tried to make fire and only a puff of smoke would come out. It was so cute

I agree that one was brilliant. I actually prefer Mothra over Godzilla. But Destroy all Monsters was so epic! It was exciting to see all his pals get together to defeat whatshisface.

Yeah, he had a name but I can't remember. If you live in the States or Canada, the original films have just been released on DVD in widescreen 2:35 with both the American versions and the original Japanese versions. Which differ in running length, content and tone.

That about sums it up.

I'm Christian, a Catholic, but I have verrrrrrrrrry different beliefs from some Christians on this board. Faith is good until it has been proven wrong.

So many great lines from Godzilla, but one of my favorites is the discovery of the Trilobyte. "What is it? "A trilobyte, a 3 ring worm once thought to be extinct", "What does this mean?" "A fabulous discovery". Now just imagine all this with the japanese dubs.

This may be my favorite hijacking of a thread ever.

Always wanted to see Godzilla Vs Gamera but alas, they are owned by different film studios and thus very unlikely to ever meet on screen.
