In reality, this scenario does not exist and I never want it to."

Quotes About Wounded Hearts

"Truth is in our blood. It is the essennce of our being. It is the best part of us, the core of what makes us human. It is our soul, our fundamental genetic beauty, and our spirit.

The soul may be buried deeply, but as long as our hearts beat there remains hope." - Author: Daniel Mackler

Quotes About Biologos

"BioLogos claims there is no conflict between the theory of evolution and creationism. Huh? Here is where the creationists seem to have the intellectual advantage: they at least see the conflict.

Jackson
