The Old Testament has books that are easily debunked. They are myth. They have no bearing on salvation. They are full of cultural laws being passed off as 'gods law' by those that wanted to control the peasants of that day.


Without a belief in the OT who is Jesus...not a predicted arrival the proof being in the fulfilment, just some guy. Pointless.

Well then I would say that God had it right in saying you have to use faith .Because if you could prove Him to be real without believing He was then it would not be faith . You may believe that someone might love you but could you really prove it scientifically ? Or is love also something that can be proven to make it true ?

A great mystic. Doesn't make his teachings less relevant. Sorry if you think he has to be a messiah for his message to be relevant. Furthermore I'm pretty sure he wouldn't want to be worshiped.

It is believed the Bible is a book from god, not that each and every copy was hand-written in simple terms everyone can understand/no one could debate.


Because no god would ever resort to such infallible, practical, common-sense measures, right? Its ludicrous to think they might actually take steps to prevent a notoriously flawed society from misreading or misinterpreting something so sacred and important. Utterly laughable, right?


aren't we human? lol!

let's put it this way, the bible is filled with fallible, impracticable, nonsensical societies.
heck, look around you! people want to blame God?

bible has been consistent for a couple 1000 yrs. science hasn't, has it?


The whole POINT of science is for it not to be consistent. Why would you point that out as a falling of science when that is what it is designed to do? That's like saying that the Sears Tower in Chicago fails as a building because it is too tall.

You think it is a GOOD thing that the bible has been consistent for a few millenniums? A book written by men whose claims cannot be authenticated since they've been lost too time is supposed to be more credible then science because over the years the message has remained the same? That's absurd. But if we are going by length of time a concept is unchanged as the most credible, I guess that means that the Hindu religion is the most correct, it is after all the oldest and has remained largely unchanged for a lot longer than the bible.


sure, your science changes all the time.

i don't care about hindu. i am a christian.
i don't care about atheists.

believe what you want. or don't.

i believe in science, too. DUH!

the only absurd thing is science claiming to be THE truth.

My science? So what science rules your life? Gravity affects you differently or something?


i don't care about hindu. i am a christian.
i don't care about atheists.


That's fine, I don't care about Christianity. That still doesn't change my point. That the bible has no way to be authenticated so it is a poor source of information. Also if you are citing that the bible is true because of its unchanging nature for so long, then I just gave you an example of a religion whose books are FAR older and just as unchanged as your precious bible. I used YOUR logic to show the error in your thinking, and you dismiss it off hand because you can't be bothered to care about that particular religion. So answer me this, WHAT (in your opinion) makes the bible a good source of information?


believe what you want. or don't.

i believe in science, too. DUH!


First you label it MY science earlier in this very post then you follow up saying that you also believe in science, followed by some condescending retort like I should have known all along or something. So which is it? Is it my science or is it universal?


the only absurd thing is science claiming to be THE truth.



Show we were science claims to be THE truth. Everything I've read says that science is used to predict future events based on past experimentation. It uses probability and statistical analysis to do so. I haven't read anywhere that science claims to be the truth. Perhaps you are mixing the term "facts" with the word "truth". Science certainly uses facts (and evidence) to prove its positions, something the bible never gets around to doing.

Possibly,

Love on the mind: Brain scans reveal whether new couples will be together for the long term


Brain scans could reveal whether new couples have found long-lasting love, researchers have revealed.
Scientists noticed patterns in the brain activity of volunteers who had recently fallen in love and found they could predict whether the couples would be together three years later.
The findings showed even if volunteers believed they were in passionately love when their brains were scanned, by examining their neuron activity scientists could detect whether those feelings were strong enough for the relationship to last.

They are all the same. Of course fundies will get all mad and tell you their god is the only true one and the others are demonic, but in all honesty if you read the accounts from the only vaguely religious people who go on a quest to make the experience of a personal relationship with a deity/divine reality (mystics of all traditions; christian monks, muslim sufis, jewish kabalists, buddhist monks, etc...) they will all tell the same stories and describe the same god.


If you want correct informations about god and theology, favor those who approach the question with an open and pragmatic mind, and not those who place their religion above the divine reality. Religions are man-made, social constructs. If you study religions you study societies.

To learn about god is a personal, internal and subjective journey.

I believe the Jews, Hindus, Muslims, Pagans and all other manner of religions would have a few words to say about your "all other gods = jesus christ" logic.

So if I only believe in one God, I can still be an atheist?

And just because you were right to dismiss all the other
possibles, doesn't mean you just keep on going.

You should read your catechism again.

The Church doesn't consider the "Christian God" to be the only correct one.

The Church considers God a reality and all other religions/spiritual traditions, other paths to get to know Him too.



In many ways, throughout history down to the present day, men have given expression to their quest for God in their religious beliefs and behaviour: in their prayers, sacrifices, rituals, meditations, and so forth. These forms of religious expression, despite the ambiguities they often bring with them, are so universal that one may well call man a religious being



I'm always baffled by the lack of knowledge Christian fundamentalists have about their own religion. And yet it's not a surprise given their fundamentalism. Fundamentalism teaches segregation, judgement, lack of empathy etc... All the opposite from the message of the NT.

Because fundamentalism and biblical literalism mean the death of critical thinking in religion (the list of Christian scholars and scientists is quite impressive; the Big Bang model , genetics and the scientific theory are all Christian inventions).

Hopefully it's mostly restricted to US protestant Christians.

A critical theologian would see these divinities for what they are: facets of the divine reality related to a specific culture and age.
