    I believe you're misunderstanding, the famine predicted was not one of food, but of hearing the word of the Lord.

    Well if Malachi was written about 430 B.C., then that's about 400 years.

    But it's not vague, and it was fulfilled by a long period without prophecy. Certainly it's not said when this will occur, but it did happen.

    Well, the claim is that Malachi was written about 430 B.C., so yes, there's room for 400 years.

    Well, there's a missing word, but it's "the" that's missing, actually. And the Hebrew prefix "בְּ" can mean "in" or "at" (or a number of other things). So literally it would be "In beginning" or "At...

    May the Lord lead you! I find comfort in the verse saying "if anyone lacks wisdom, let him ask..." (James 1:5).

    I'm thankful for peace--I haven't had peace right off the bat as I've heard in some peoples' testimonies after turning to God, but it's there, and it's growing.

    So we are getting less than the best? Evil triumphs, to some degree? and what about John Piper's point, all this evil happened to Joseph without consent.

    Or a son being crucified? If the cross was in God's sovereign plan, then any other evil can even be part of God's plan, for good.

    I'm not proposing, I'm quoting how people in science use it, have you heard of five sigma? But nature is full of random processes, and you are denying this.

    I can allow a lot of variance with 1087 to work with. How many basic catalytic RNA types do you suppose there are? Thousands? Millions? They all get swallowed up by 1087.
