there is no evidence that there ever was a garden of eden so adding reptilians to the fairy tail doesnt make it any less of a fairy tail.

I was thinking something similar to this the other day. In the Bible it never says anything about Eve being afraid of the snake... this got me thinking... If she wasn't afraid of a talking snake, did all creatures talk before the curse of man? Interesting subject

So, whenever you have your first personal experience with those hundreds have provided accounts for, we should dismiss your word as just another anecdotal account with no merit?



Just food for thought - just because we don't have in-hand proof of something or you haven't witnessed it yourself doesn't mean it's untrue.

Denying ignorance is not the same thing as embracing the pipe dream that we already know it all - some things will always lie outside the scope of one's personal (or officially-admitted/acknowledged) experience.

It's higher than mummy and dady, it made them.

People believe in god because they want to believe in an afterlife.

Depends on what you believe and where your faith lies. According to the christian bible- God created man in his own image. There is a trinity. Father,Son,Holy spirit.Hence let US make man in our own image. The Bible also says that Satan( the devil,Lucifer, whatever you believe) appeared to Eve in the Garden as a serpent. After wards God cast the serpent out and said he would never grow legs to walk upon the face of the Earth,but slither on his belly and bite the heel of mankind. (that's kinda odd-the bible hinting at evolution. HHHMMMM) Most religions have a similar story, this just tends to be the one I am more familiar with.Don't know if this helped at all, but its just my 2 cents

I suspect it was a 'serpent' and it did Eve a favour by helping her develop her knowledge. Christ tells people "Be ye wise as serpents". I doubt for a minute he's referring to hissing Sid, I think he is referring to a Shining One, a serpent. No I don't know whether they were humans who tampered with our dna, extraterrestial or interdiamentional.

The supreme source, god is no man, I can assure you that, we are so small, like inscects, even smaller, very small creatures, so is our wisdom regarding what the creator is.



I know God can not be a man. That is why i made the point.

We can not be created in Gods image as a shape. But as "I am" Like God is "I am"

The bible has a lot of the answers.. but i have found that many Christians dont see the story for what it is, a story of one gods people.. like you stated about the Lord God, i believe that the garden was one of many gardens planted by different gods and at some point we all got together, the bible talks about the others outside of Edan as well.
Oh and dont forget the part when adam and eve eat from the the tree of knowledge, and god turned to the other gods and said ...then he will truly be like one of us.. implying more then one god, but they argue thats the holy trinty they are talking about.. i think not.

And there's people who claim Bigfoot exists, or that they've seen aliens...and somehow they always fail at presenting objective proof.

Subjective proof isn't reliable

Unfortunately you probably have absolutely no reason to believe what you do. You're expanding on one religion's interpretation of creation which hilariously enough gives you even less credibility than the text from which you get your "answers". Why Christianity and not another religion?

To be honest i don't know what to make of the statement when God turned to the others and said; from now on they will be like us and have knowledge of good and evil.
I don't recall that God said that the others were Gods.
When God said like us God must have meant the I am function. We go the knowledge of awareness, knowing who we are and what we are capable of.

Humans are not the only creatures that God created which have a "I am" function. A lion knows he is not a elephant.

OP in my own opinion to ref your first post that's a very good question about the snake
I'm always pondering religion ie bible and other writings and there are loads of similar things where you can make the same question and the one I always find myself coming back to and pondering is the star that guarded the three wise men, was it star? Or something more afterall in them times a bright light in the sky would be a star they didn't have any other words or means of describing it what do you all think.

your expanding on one post that you seem to know me from, but point taken

and for the record im not a Christian

i am actually a pagan that respects others, thats why i dont think the bible is wrong, its their story, im just one of the others..
but feel free to enlighten me with your version of events..
surely my signature gives you a hint to my beliefs?
i prescribe to the chaos theory's of creation, that all that was that is and that will be come from the chaos.
the rest well thats all just part of the ride..

Thanks for that, yes it could be read either way, thats the fun of the book, its so open to interpretation.
I just see it that way, that there were many gods, a pantheon.
I dont belive that jesus is the only way to god, so i cant be a Christian in the sense of its spirit, but that doesn't mean i cant see where the book is coming from.

I have a question for you.

We say that Jesus is Gods only begotten son, because that is what our scripture tells us. What is your opinion that Jesus tels us that we are all Gods children?

I feel that there is a conflict in our scripture compare to what Jesus is saying. The reason for that is, we humans created religious scripture long before Jesus was born.

My vision of utopia is for all religion to be eliminated. I'm all for keeping them as classical literature, but belief in the supernatural is pretty ridiculous. Obviously I'm not a very kind and respectful person when it comes to other's religious beliefs but for me it's like someone is claiming they know Santa Claus is real.

The following is not what I "believe" nor is it an account of "events". I admit science doesn't have all of the answers but then again it's not supposed to. The point of science is to explain, not to inherently know. We will eventually know, but for now... Lawrence Krauss
