Wow! That is all I can say. You guys are so far off it isn't even worth the words to describe. God asks us in the Bible to have faith. He does not have to prove anything to you, he will however humble you and he will humble you soon if you do not believe in him and obey his law. If you seek answers you must first admit that you are wrong and humble yourself to God and ask for wisdom. Anyone who is well educated in the world and ignorant of God is the same as a flashlight without batteries. If you want proof you must humble yourself and study the word of God to find the truth. If you read the Bible and you see contradictions then you do not comprehend what you are reading. You will only be able to comprehend when you have been given the ability to comprehend. You have to start with a clean slate and throw out all preconceived notions of what you have been taught through the churches of today. It does not matter if your back ground is Catholic, Atheist or Church of Wal-Mart. Throw it all away, none of it is true. Most of what we are taught today in these denominational churches comes from Pagan beliefs and of course the Pagan belief is going to contradict the true word of God. Seek and you will find, ask and you will be answered. If you approach the subject with the attitude that you already know all the answers then you are defeating the purpose and you will end up chasing your tail like you are doing now. God is love, God is the universe, God created you and he created everything you see. Aw. I could go on forever but the point is God does not create hate, war ect. You are right in that people create these things but they do so through Lucifer by denying Gods law.

No one has yet attempted to refute my argument, from what I can tell, most of the responses are in agreement with my point...
My belief is that the Universe IS God, this erases the Creationism versus Abiogenesis debate because if the Universe is God and life came about due to the Universe than God did create life... It makes sense on a lot of levels if you think about it...
But I, for one, am tired of ignorant people clinging to their dying religions, I say keep your belief in God but forget everything you've been told to believe about God so that your mind can be open to the real truth rather than closed by the blinders of religion...

The bible is written by men, parts are copied/mangled from earlier religions/cultures. If I were writing a book today and told everyone that God was telling me to write it I would be deemed quite insane.

You're response did not refute my arguments in the OP. If the Bible is foolishness to those who are unsaved than how did anyone get saved at all? I myself was a Christian, I was "saved" and it was only after I actually put forth an effort to follow Christ that I became confused by the Bible and slowly began to wake up the fact that it was not perfect, not historically accurate, and certainly not the word of God...
Using scripture cannot work in this debate, because anyone can write a book and put the words "this is the word of God" in the book, it doesn't make it true, the book must be questioned and tested, and, as far as my tests so far, the Bible is failing with flying colors....
