John 20:5-7, "He bent over and looked in at the STRIPS OF LINEN lying there but did not go in. Then Simon Peter came along behind him and went straight into the tomb. He saw the STRIPS OF LINEN lying there, as well as THE CLOTH THAT HAD BEEN WRAPPED AROUND JESUS' HEAD. The cloth was still lying in its place, separate from the linen." My question is "Where does the shroud enter the scene?"

  • Why is the red shift of the EMS due to Doppler and not attenuation? Are they the same thing?

    As space stretches out a beam of light, its wavelength increases, and its energy decreases, thus shifting light from distant stars red. Is the Doppler Effect and attenuation (loss of energy) the same thing?

  • If all of us regular users were on the jury to decide if there was a God or not, who would you pick as the Jury Foreman?

    Both sides have presented their arguments; there is nothing new to present. The jury must now retire and consider it's verdict. Who do we pick as Jury Foreman?

  • Why does YA remove the opportunity to make comments on a question after a week or so?

    We had a great string going on a question. Does YA not permit long Q&A? I've seen strings of more than 60 comments. We had a good one going on "How could Jesus be resurrected to the "right hand of God" if he was god?" Now, the comment button's been removed. You can't even see what was said.

  • What if we are the one-third of the angels who were cast out of heaven to the Earth with Satan for one last chance?

    And, what if God loved us so much, He came to Earth as a man to give us that last chance so that we might prove we could follow the rules, and be in His presence again?

  • Does 1 Timothy 4:10 mean all people are saved whether they believe in the Lord or not?

    "We struggle and work hard, because we have placed our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all and especially of those who believe." (1 Tim. 4:10) My question is the meaning of "...Savior of all and especially of those who believe."

  • In an honest attempt to understand atheism and the atheists' beliefs, I would like to know if the following is accurate and complete.?

    THE ATHEIST CREED I believe there is no God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and Earth. I believe that Jesus Christ never existed. I believe Jesus was not the Word of a nonexistent God.

    THE ATHEIST CREED I believe there is no God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and Earth. I believe that Jesus Christ never existed. I believe Jesus was not the Word of a nonexistent God. I believe Jesus did not become incarnate by the Holy Ghost. I believe Jesus was not born of the Virgin Mary. I believe Jesus did not suffer under Pontius Pilate. I believe Jesus did not die on the cross for the sins of mankind. I believe Jesus did not rise from the dead after three days. I believe Jesus did not ascend into heaven and now sits at the right hand of God the Father. I believe Jesus will not come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe there is no Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life. I do not believe that a Holy Spirit spoke through the Old Testament prophets. I believe nothing is sacred and the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit do not exist and therefore should not be worshiped or glorified. There is no holy catholic and apolostlic church. There is no communion of saints. I do not believe in a baptism for the remission of sins. I believe in neither the hope of a resurrection of the dead, nor the promise of an everlasting life. AMEN.

  • Can someone explain how so many R&S questions get moved to other sites?

    They start in R&S, then end up hidden in Jokes & Riddles, Spam, Pets, Dining Out, or some other obscure location. How can a user do that to someone's question so it can't be answered, and why?

  • Are atheists part of the Army of the Antichrist, preparing the way by enlisting as many followers as possible?

    I promise I am not trying to be deliberately provocative. I just want to know from both theists and atheists how they are positioned in the spiritual conflict.

  • Is there free will in heaven?

    If there is free will in heaven, then that means at least the opportunity for sin. If the opportunity exists, then can the saved sin in heaven? Can they be expelled like Lucifer and one third of the angels? If no free will in heaven, doesn't that eliminate a "good?"

  • Does God control the roulette wheel?

    I understand that God is in control of Heaven and Earth. I also understand that He doesn't mess around with individual free will. My question is about CHANCE. Is there room for chance in creation, or does God control not only the Moon, stars, and galaxies, but the New York State Lottery as well?
