<quoted text>Go to Israel... Walk to any of the dozens of archaeological digs.. In Every Site you will find paintings, graffiti, pottery, Mosaics and assorted objects with pictures of everyday events, grain counts, names, places, where to get a beer, where to get laid, what to do where to go and whose doing who... All dating to the years around the birth said to be Jesus until after the time he is said to have died... There are Many writings from the time of Christ that speak of Gladiatorial games, Roman soldiers, and many Individual Citizens... Yet Not One note, not one mention, not a painting, not a scribble on a wall... Until Years after his life by a guy that was attempting to gain power within a new religious movement...

I have no doubt that a guy that today is called Jesus went around preaching some... But if the later stories that hyped him and added ever increasing Claims of greater Super Powers were in the slightest True there would be people running around making pots, writing on walls, making frescoes, tiling mosaics and being written of at least as much as the local gladiators and hookers....
Lol ... Yeah go to L.A and see how much graffiti on Billy Graham is on the walls... Weak... As always...

Albert Einstein seems be quoted here a lot, his theories and intelligence,, he was smart, one of the greatest minds of all time. He was not feared by his fellow man or christian and was an atheist. Mark Twain was an atheist, along with Ernest Hemingway. I find it strange that if you tell a christian you are a Jew, you are loved and accepted despite your non belief of the little 9lb 4oz baby jesus,, but if you say you are an atheist,, you will be beaten by the bible belt, shunned, outcast and ridiculed. What's the difference. The christian seems to embrace an idea that any belief, is better than none. Interesting.
Puff, puff, pass.
einstein on spinoza and buddhism

I believe in Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with the fates and actions of human beings.(Albert Einstein)

The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend personal God and avoid dogma and theology. Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things natural and spiritual as a meaningful unity. Buddhism answers this description. If there is any religion that could cope with modern scientific needs it would be Buddhism.(Albert Einstein)

It is JEHAVAH'S WITNESSES not Jehovah Witness, and you cannot buy our Bible it is not for sale!
If one believes the trinity thay can consider the following:
If Jesus is God Almighty, then the following is true
God needs to learn obedience Heb5:8.
God is our brother Heb2:11,
God offered loud cries & tears to himself that he would save himself from death and since he showed himself reverent submission he answered himself- Heb5:7
Raised himself from death and sat himself down next to his own right hand and removed all authority from himself, to give it to himself so simultaneously he has and doesn't have it. 1Cor15:24-28

Just a small correction: It correctly is JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES------Not Jehovah Witnesses.
We are witnesses for the ruler of the universe and that makes us JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES.
Thanks for the info. Now that you have said that, why do other JW's type it the way I did? Now stop your bragging.

No that is incorrect. Jehovah's Witnesses do not sell anythying including our Bible. You can have one just for the asking.

There are some commercial companies who do book binding and they may charge for their services. Just curious where did you come up with the figure $44.99?

Not bragging just stating facts! No Jehovah's Witnesses type it the way you do...only people who don't know better type it Jehovah Witnesses instead of correctly Jehovah's Witnesses.
You are welcome for the information.

wouldn't it be great to allow the bible taught in school, yes read and find what it says isn't that what we do with other books no one would want religion taught there would always be the problem of whose veiw or form of religion was used and many times by teachers that were not into religion at all but what is wrong about study or reading what it says how can we be educated and be afraid of what the bible says people could make thier own decision about what to believe or not believe oh yes a lot of religions may not have an even chance at makeing fools of people. don't believe need a lot of rules they would surly get that wrong without even trying read and study bible and not pushing beleifs great way to add somthing to help all pupil teacher school as well as state this is a no brainer lets do it
The people pushing this would tell innocent children that the bible is fact, that it is real so your idea would not work. Of course most children would laugh if they read the bible with out any one pushing it on them

<quoted text>oh so now you're attempting to read minds?
let me guess, you don't believe atheist rape children?
or is it basically humans raping children. pedophile's are cut from the same cloth; they generally don't fall within just any general belief system..
in a society where a belief system dominates, you're going to find a proportionate number of pedophiles in that belief system and again in all other systems of belief proportionate to that population.

Your statement has nothing to do with the fact that the only thing that states a man walked on water and raised the dead was written hundreds of years after the events?

nt trying to downplay anyone's side. Research your history, its not hard to figure out. Hell back when they wrote the bible, and almost all of it by (word of mouth recollection) they believed if they threw you in water and you floated you were guilty... and if you sunk you were innosent.. and there is no such thing as a hell. THE NAME OF or in the name of god, has killed more innocents than we can count

that is also true, so from this point , I want to become Bella , and find my Edward, no my Jake, oh just give me the both of them , take away the blood thing though, that just grosses me out.. While I am at it , my faith is more toward the clue that if I buy in , I will see it all someday, not that if I read it , it will happen... Great Day to you Satan, although , I hope we dont make contact, I still wish you well..lol My road may not be leading right , and I may be traveling down yours, but I still have a car that can go in reverse and that will still turn around, well most of the time , when the transmission has fluid in it.

As I stand alone
walls on all sides
On the hardness and trials
I will stand tall
as tall as I might,
for all of my
humble little life.
Til the world tramples me,
and I am no more,
I will stand tall
as tall as I might.
Always reaching for the sun.
Even though all around
is brokenness and pain
I'll lend my brief beauty
and stand tall
as tall as I might.
so true

Perhaps our task in this shaky, fast-changing, bewildering world in which we live is to make music, at first with all that we have, and then, when that is no longer possible, to make music with what we have left.

Whoever said the chemical soup was lifeless? Apparently it wasn't.
It's your definition of "Life" that needs expanding.

You skipped Science in school, didn't you?
There is far, far more proof (yes, PROOF) of evolution than your primitive myth.

Evolution is fact. The scale or extent of evolution is the better question. We know factually, people and the world around us have and are evolving. Them who flatly deny evolution tout the impossibility of a "Big Bang from nothing" then pat their leather clad bible with comfort, while missing this is Exactly the same as the god-creator from nothing. Even a god, would at some point have "evolved" a begining from "nothingness".

The mind cannot comprehend a "nothing" as the birth of everything, god or earthly atom.

Puff, puff, pass.

Is that all you live for to Nag others? Get a life.

So Ministry Ideals never bought the bibles it was donated to them by the watchtower or JWs to sale for profit to others like the money changers in Jesus day, go figure. Religion is a business.
