Umm... Kinda like complex living cells just springing up from lifeless chemical soup... Big Bangs from nothing... And human beings evolving from fish... These are myths of God hating people who will try anything to sell their religion called evolution....
Great Post!

We may think we left the past behind, but it has a way of catching up to us. Though we want to run away, we are forced to confront our past and these secrets that is buried must come into the light and then we are able to move on. We all need to leave the past behind and move on towards the future and if we are lucky, we will have help getting there.
I do agree, although that is a tuff one. I see we like quotes. So here is another good one.. Good Day your way...

If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness, and fears.

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.

I'd like to read that discription, can you please post the verses of Jeuss description.
Isaiah

53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the
LORD revealed?
53:2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a
root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and
when we shall see him,[there is] no beauty that we should
desire him.
53:3 He is despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and
acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were [our] faces from
him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

How would one read 'Only' the parts they like 'IF'
they didn't read it all?
I've read it several times, and I like it cover to cover!
Did most of it make me feel happy? Yes!
Did some of it make me feel sad? Yes!
Did some of it make me feel filthy? Yes!
Did some of it make me feel Guilty? Yes!
Did some of it make me feel Peace? Yes!
Did some of it make me feel Freedom? Yes!
Did Much of it tell me about Mockers, and Haters of God? Yes!
Did it teach me the Truth?
Your postings are proof that it is True!
Thank you!
most of christianity is a cult of personality; which focuses on the worship of the messenger and not the message. the WORD is important. to know and to understand are two slightly different ideas.

I thought you were refering to how Jesus looked, physical appearence as I think was mr roachclip's intent, not speculative and vague verses, which may be the best available, but saying the tree was green for example, does not say much,,green like a pine, maple, palm,, so I'd once again have to agree with mr roachclip, there is nothing saying Jesus was for example 5'8", thin with short brown hair and blue eyes,,,

If you hand six people six different drawings from six different bibles of robed, sandaled, long haired men with palms faceing out the may all say that's Jesus, put lay them side by side and each are very different,, so the image sells, not the reality. Thank you however for the reply.

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.
Then can youn explain why it is still called the "Evolution Theory"?

Jehovah's Witnesses ordered to pay more than $20 million to woman who said she was sexually abused.
The jury found that the elders who managed the Fremont congregation in the 1990s and who were under the supervision of Watchtower knew that Kendrick, a member, had recently been convicted of the sexual abuse of another child, but they kept his past record secret from the congregation.

"Spaceship earth",

Surely you do not believe that everything that the news media publishes is the TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH! If you do then you are more naÔve than I would give you credit for!
You seem to know a lot about Jehovahís Witnesses yet you are not one. May I ask why?
I have come to the conclusion that you are evidently an apostate! I come to that conclusion because everything you post is negative and you donít seem to care If it is factual or not! Please let me know so I can choose to converse or not with you!

surely you don't believe the bible is the truth, the "whole" truth, and nothing but the truth do you?

Isaiah 55:8
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.

Isaiah 55:9
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

what ya think about that?

I don't believe in any god sorry. Most of my research about different religons is done online. Not hard to do and is a easy read. I don't copy and paste every thing but sometimes instead use articles that have shown Jehovah Witnesses break that laws like other christians do not make it not a reason to hid it especially on this forum. It that brought you down a notch I'm sorry, but we are seeking evidence and understanding here.

So, no I'm not a former Jehovah Witness, my debates are a composite of debates. I'm agnostic as i stated long ago on my post. I salute the flag and say the pledge, even under god (a god most likely does not exists).

I get blood transfusions if needed. I engage in christimas holidays and new year celebrations, it's fun and don't plan to stop anythime soon.

I have ask jehovah witness that come to my door would they debate online as you do and they responded that the watchtower recommends they should not do so. Maybe your the one that is a apostate. So then you would be doing yourself a favor don't reply to any of my posts , you are doing it to defend your faith I can understand, don't think that can be done without being challenge.

I see myself as more civil in debates than some and try not to destroy a person simply for fun or just produce facts that just tickle your ears.

Now, If you have evidence that shows why the Watchtower and its elders are not in violation and deserve not to be punished, please speak up.

A christian only reads the bible, it takes an atheist to explain it to them.(credits LOL)
