Your tirade on his meme seems uncalled for. You could have said the same thing, but calmer and more politely. Or you could have ignored his meme altogether. We're on a site where people of differing opinions and viewpoints congregate. If you don't like what someone says, then either ignore it, downvote it or leave a short comment saying why you don't like it. But an angry, caps-lock-saturated rant isn't going to change anyone's mind. We have freedom of speech. That protects blasphemy as well. You don't have to like it, but you have to accept it as part of living in a free society. If people aren't allowed to say things that offend you, then that would also mean you aren't allowed to say things that offend anyone else. That's not the country we live in. You're a good man, Beckett, but I felt that what you did (more like how you went about it) wasn't right.

Wrong. The only thing I regret is that I don't have the stones to leave this site permanently. And that's only because I like too many people here.

In the Holy Bible that you don't believe in, we are commanded not to use God's Name as a swear. In other words, don't use It in vain, which is basically what using It as a swear is doing because you're using It for something It surely wasn't meant for! The low life who submitted that meme not only did so anyway, he actually depicted what appears to be my beloved Lord and Savior doing so!

My problem isn't so much that He doesn't believe in God, but rather that he doesn't GIVE A DAMM that others believe in and adore Him! People are so heartless and vindictive!

The sad fact may be that I don't belong perusing a site such as this where virtually anything goes! SMH

"your spirited caps-lock-accentuated expose really changed my mind"

Um, yeah. That's pretty much sarcasm.

Anyway, for the record, I didn't use all caps in order to change anyone's mind. I did it because I was LIVID!! Sincerely enraged and very hurt!

I once had a quite vivid dream where my beloved Lord and Savior, a 20 foot-tall Jesus the Christ, was standing behind me. And He was telling a couple of hoodlum punks that anyone who messes with me messes with Him. The punks fled in horror!

That's the kind of relationship i have with Him. I understand many people, Christians included, don't have that with Him, but i do. So the meme that ignorant shmuck posted just jumped out at me like a hungry bear!

Believe it or not, I have been a follower of the Baha'i Faith for a few years now. But they also believe in the Divinity of the One known as Jesus, else I wouldn't even acknowledge their existence. I'm only telling you this because you mentioned being a supporter of Religious rights. Well, the Baha'i Faith adheres to that rule, as well. All of the major Religions are Sent from the same Source

Thanks for replying. *Hugs

Romans 1:28 since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done.
Not all will come to know Him. Not all will have their names written in the book of life. Some know God's word, and deliberately disobey. Anytime I'm frustrated with someone's disrespect to God, I know that He has endured much worse, and continues to reach out despite our transgressions.

Before making fun of Christianity, critically think about the beliefs that you blindly follow. Besides, there are so many bible stories that can be proven true by recent discoveries, and things that the bible says were scientifically proven thousands of years later. However, evolution counters actual science and other religions have been proven false.

Question number two
reply
2 ups, 2 replies
Most of those are either verses taken out of context, or things which would have been known to people of the time (like innumerable stars).

Isaiah 40:22 says circle, not sphere. A circle is flat. If it meant sphere, it would have used a different Hebrew word.

Lev 17:11 is questionable. Life is technically in brain activity, not just blood. A person can die and still have all the blood in their body.

At any rate, numerous verses in the Bible are scientifically absurd. Genesis talks about Jacob having livestock mate in front of striped sticks to produce striped offspring. Clearly they didn't understand genetics. Numerous verses say that Earth doesn't move, and has foundations. We know that Earth does move. It says that the sun stood still in the sky for a full day. That would literally be earth-altering if it had actually happened. Jesus himself said that stars can physically fall from the sky down to Earth. That's impossible. The list goes on and on and on.

You must understand the bible is translated from a large multitude of languages, so some words may be slightly different when translated from Hebrew, but good point.

Also, the bible is not litteral about a lot of things. Jesus does not believe the stars will "actually" fall from the sky. I don't know the biblical reference you are using, but stars falling from the sky usually represents the end of days. Is that what Jesus is referring to?

Life is indeed a brain activity, however, what sustains the brain is blood.

Also, the "circle of earth" is not litteral. The point of this passage is to explain the greatness of God compared to the foolishness of man.

Matt 24:29 and Mark 13:25 talk about stars falling from heaven. I don't think it's symbolic, because in the same passage he refers to the sun and moon in a literal sense. Why would the stars be any different?

This kind of answers question 1. It's not exactly what I'm looking for, but many archeological discoveries have proved many of the old testimony stories to be true... Which makes sense because the Old Testament is mostly history.

Also, (I would need t get this verified) but I've heard that they found Chinese records of a meteorite heading towards the direction of Bethlahem just days before (or the same day) that Jesus was born.

I appreciate your kind words, and your respectful replies. If I came across as rude, I apologize. All too often I find myself debating with people who already have their beliefs set in stone and aren't willing to listen to any opposing evidence, which gets frustrating.

The meteorite story has a few problems, the main two being: 1. scholars can't pin down the year Jesus was born, let alone the month or day. Matthew and Luke give conflicting and irreconcilable dates. Matthew says he would have to be born before 4BC, while Herod was still alive. Luke says he was born during the census of Quirinius, which was about 6 or 7AD. There's no overlap, and no way that he could've been born during both events at the same time. And 2. a meteorite wouldn't stay in the sky long enough for a whole caravan of travellers to follow it.

So I'll go a couple items on that list, but the first thing that popped out at me was this, "This list is subjective, and based on news reports rather than peer-reviewed articles in scientific publications". Basically, the article is warning you to take all it's claims with a grain of salt. On to the list!

10. Asherah was a Semetic deity worship by several of the ancient peoples of the Levant, including the Akkadians, and was considered a wife or consort of the Hebrew god YHWH before they became monaltrists. The book of Jeremiah, written c. 630BCE may have referred to Asherah in Jeremiah 7:16-18 and Jeremiah 44:17-19, 25. Just because a popular regional "real" (at least to her worshippers) deity was mentioned in the Bible does not automatically "prove" the Bible. It's a fallacy equivalent to saying that a certain issue of a comic book shows Captain America fighting Adolf Hitler; Hitler was a real person ergo we have proven Captain America is/was a real person.

8. Herod was a real historical person, attested to both by contemporary records and contemporary historians. For an explanation of why this does not prove the Bible, see #10.

7. The Bible is set in or mentions several real historical places including Jerusalem, Jericho, Egypt, and Gath. The fallacy of saying that being set in a real place "proves" a work as true is so common it has a special name, the Spiderman Fallacy. The Spiderman Fallacy works like this: the Spiderman comics are set in New York City, which is a real place; therefore Spiderman is real.

Now, mind you these are just the ones that jump out at me and I'm writing purely from memory. Two of the items, numbers 9 & 4, deal with things outside the scope of the Bible, so I don't understand why they would be on the list of archeological finds "proving" the Bible at all. #9 describes a Jewish site from the Byzantine era, well after the start of the Jesus cult; #4 describes a Caananite (not Hebrew) item.

Science says matter cannot be created or destroyed, and Evolution has the concept of either a dot of matter created from something, or the dot was always there. Even if there were a dot that was created by something or was always manically there, the amount of force that it would take to create the universe from a dot would be impossible, lest there were a divine being.

science has to be testable and provable. We cannot test or prove the idea that animals manically transform into other animals. We have never found a "missing link"

Also, evolution says that life came from billions of years of evolution happening on a rock? Where do I even start XD?

"Science says matter cannot be created or destroyed, and Evolution has the concept of either a dot of matter created from something, or the dot was always there. Even if there were a dot that was created by something or was always manically there, the amount of force that it would take to create the universe from a dot would be impossible, lest there were a divine being."

Evolution and cosmology are two completely different fields of science. Evolution deals with biological diversity. Cosmology deals with the cosmos, its origin, etc. Also, when you say that it's impossible, that is a logical fallacy known as an argument from incredulity (i.e. I can't understand how it's possible, therefore it's impossible). Two hundred years ago people would have said that heavy flying machines made of metal are impossible. But now we use airplanes every day, because we understand things that they didn't about aerodynamics, etc.

"science has to be testable and provable. We cannot test or prove the idea that animals manically transform into other animals. We have never found a "missing link" "

Animals don't magically transform into other animals. One species can change into a new, different species over time (known as speciation), as successive genetic changes accumulate in a population. In fact, it happens so often, we know of multiple ways it can happen (allopatric speciation, sympatric speciation, and two other types). All evolution is is change over time. Small changes can accumulate over long periods of time and produce big changes. Here is a partial list of "missing links," or transitional forms, that scientists have discovered: http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/List_of_transitional_fossils

Please just tell me if you believe the universe came into existence out of absolutely nothing for no reason whatsoever. Because that would be rather a miracle except *nothing* includes no God. So you'd have to believe in almighty...what? Chance? So you call your God Chance? Chance would have to in some way exist outside of space and time. Or wd Chance create him/her/itself? Are you prepared to jetison any shred of rationality for the sake of...what? I get the impressiononost who hold to naturalism don't say the universe is eternal. But I'm not assuming you do. I think they fear admitting eternality because it just feels too much like a God thing. So let us know which way you go on that if you don't mind. :D

I don't know how the universe came into being. I believe the evidence supports the Big Bang theory, but that's always subject to revision, like anything in science.

I don't call my god "chance," because I don't believe in any gods or supernatural beings. I would best be described as a materialist, because I believe the material, physical world is all that can be proven to exist. If anything supernatural does exist, I'm unaware of it, and always will be, because supernatural things by their very nature are outside of our physical, natural world, and therefore beyond our ability to study, observe or even verify them.

Is it rational to believe that an all-knowing god would tell his chosen followers all about how to live but leave out simple, important information like how to make antibacterial ointment or a smallpox vaccine? Is it rational to believe that an all-loving, all-powerful god would allow evil to exist?

I don't follow a religion. Christianity is not a religion. It's a faith in the Holy Spirit and a direct relationship with God.

Yes, the Crusades were not pleasant and there were atrocities committed on both sides, but the Islamic "death squads" ran through much of Europe and the religious push back by the Roman Catholics was quite justified.

As for Adolf Hitler, he was raised Catholic, but did not follow the teachings of that religion. He was an atheist. And that was his justification to commit his evil.

Well that's your opinion. This is where faith comes in. We know that there is a lot of evidence for both Christianity and science. So, if we choose to believe in God, we must have faith that He will be there and whatever happens is according to His will, and will turn out for the best. If we do not really have faith, then it is no longer belief, prayer is simply a habit. Each to their own beliefs of course.
