technician really explain everything about how the computer is built and how it functions, or can the Manufacturer or Designer really explain it to
Remember the scriptures cannot be explained entirely by human brains made of water, neuron pathways, salt, nerves, etc which we don't entirely
understand how they function either. Only the Father Yahuwah can explain, the Designer of everything, why it works and how it works. Humans know
less than 1% of the total understanding of the universe. Think about it were not eternal, how can we explain the eternal? We arent all knowing, so how
can we explain everything?
I recommend you watch some videos by Kent Hovind on his theories of the Earth, or Ken Ham. It will help to clear up some things.

Ummmmmmmmmmm....... I'm not even a "computer technician" and I can tell you how they press micro chips why and how boards work, how to build and
operate a computer.
These are all called facts, there is nothing left to "interpretation" so your analogy fails completely. If you wished to learn how a computer
operates, you could learn. The same cannot be said about the bible, some parts of it appear to be literary, other parts seem to be metaphors,
discerning between the two is not possible on all occassions, especially when numerous places contradict other entries in said book.
There is no science to determine what a writer meant when he wrote something. Pick a poet and tell me what he means and I will find some one else who
tells me he means something totally different. Unless the writer inexplicably states what he meant with what he wrote in non-metaphor rhetoric, you
can never say you know. If you do, you are making it up... saying that you are blessed by the divine is a dillusion, like some how the maker has
blessed specifically you to understand the contradictory rhetoric that the bible contains -- that is quite possibly the most absurd agrument I have
ever heard from a relig pov.
As for us not being eternal, sure.... no mere mortal person can ever live eternally, but to say humans aren't eternal is a fallacy.
We are collectively eternal. We have the potential to live forever as a species, for humans to exists for all time into the future, sure I may not,
but surely there won't be no people unless there is an ELE. With that said, our information networks we build are completely eternal, meaning we
learn more every generation, not less..... we piggy back brain power and work as a unified conscience, and in essence, that is purely eternal. So to
say we are incapable of learning about eternal things, because we aren't eternal is about as silly as your OG post.

Um, science is fact. The same argument can be said about movie director George Lucas. When was the last time he updated Farenheit? Never... Oh I
guess his message must be "eternal" too.....
Or simply, there is nothing to update in the Bible. We could release a new version that fixes the scientifical errors that it contains, but wouldn't
that ruin the integrity of the book?
In the same vein, doesn't a "Book" of god, that is supposed to be eternal, have it's integrity ruined simply by containing factually incorrect
The Bible has been updated.... numerous times, I guess you never heard of "The King James Edition." This is the version that was very purposefully
updated to benefit Sir King James during his rule, this is the same version you see in the hotel night stand.... which does infact deviate from it's
So I guess, in less than 4 seconds we can prove that the book of god is in fact NOT "eternal" as you would define it?
I mean really, do you zealots even think before you open your mouth?
