First I don't want to create a hate post. Maybe it's a bit of a rant. But again, not aimed at hurting anyone.
But this said, to me, every living thing is part of the (insert your god name here) plan. So whatever you believe, who ever you praise, you're my brother and sister. What makes me see the higher of yourself is the way you treat your fellows, the nature, the earth. The love you show in living and for livings. The one I admire the most are not necessery preaching but they are like a lighthouse, just the way they are. You just wan't to evolve like them.
But here what's amaze me.
All creations has been corrupted by an ancient virus.
Scientists have linked it to the origins of carnivorism and sexual reproduction. Did rape and murder come to mind??
you said the only reason you read and watch stuff about the bible is to just bring it up in
discussions later there is no spiritual reason why you are looking at all this info
i find that hard to believe you said proffesors like you go to school for this
and who cares some scientist says 400 million yrs of darkness before light
the amount of faith you have in math but not in your god.
in all honesty is sounds like you had your mind made up before you started to study.
And dude take my advice stop now what your doing
life is to short you will never convince
some one who believes in god that he dont exist
Just like no one is going to convince you he does .
And to spend so much time of your life to study the bible just so you can argue god dont exist
lol what a waste of time brother
shows a sign that your not happy in life and you dont like it when other people are happy in thier faith
i guess by you avatar the do you believe aliens made u
Gee. Maybe English is not my native language but open mind isn't yours also. Metaphors. In all the 'bibles' there is metaphors. When John in 4:14 said : "Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again; 14but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life." You don't believe that in that guy there will ACTUALLY be a well? No, metaphor. So they are as right as you using metaphors.
That I can't tell. You lead by a vast margin. But surely there are muslim or buddhist around. Anyone?
In all history there is a part of bull.
If you think you could write anything you want in the past I suggest you learn about Copernic vs Church about heliocentrism.
We debate/exchange. I could say you're stubborn as a freaking mule or arrogant as hell to think you possess the truth but I simply don't think so.
My 'misunderstandings' of Genesis is predicated on the notion that I lack some deeper spiritual frame of mind that would permit me to see them properly.
Whereas when I look at them I am doing my best to take them in the literalness they appear to be, without including any additives.
Besides the stars and frozen trees issue I focused on before. What about birds flying above the oceans before all land-based animals? Tell me. What am I misunderstanding about that? It says birds were flying around on Day 5. Day 6 the land animals are made. It seems quite clear Genesis is stating birds came before land animals. Which is precisely not what our scientific finds show. Birds evolved much later from land animals.
I feel it's disingenuous and unfair to accuse me of not trying to comprehend your reasoning while at the same time alluding to not being guilty of that yourself.
What does the Bible using metaphors on occasion have to do with the truth?
This happened in the 1500's buddy nor does it do anything to back up your point??
I believe that I deserve to go to hell, totally different.
