To laugh is to risk appearing the fool. To weep is to risk being called sentimental. To reach out to another is to risk involvement. To expose feelings is to risk showing your true self. To place your ideas and your dreams before them is to risk being called naive. To love is to risk not being loved in return. To live is to risk dying. To hope is to risk despair, and to try is to risk failure.

But risks must be taken, because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing. The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing and becomes nothing. He [or she] may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn and feel and change and grow and love and live. Chained by his certitudes, he is a slave, he's forfeited his freedom.

Only the person who risks is truly free."

And yet christians want to overlook the evil of the god in the bible andhave created a "new" god that just loves every one.
If the christian cult believed that the bible was real they would not pick and choose and ignore what their god said

Do you think the many civilizations that have wrotten historically were just "lying.making stuff up" about everything that has ever been written?
Do you think 2000 years from now, what future generations may find in places such as the Library of Congress, will be IGNORANTLY be deemed as lies, fantasies, ignorantly dubbed as nothing but fallacies of past civilizations?
Because when you post such nonsense, that is how you sound.
The Neolithic age in China can be traced back to between 12,000 and 10,000 BC.[6]

Early evidence for proto-Chinese millet agriculture is radiocarbon-dated to about 7000 BC.[7] Farming gave rise to the Jiahu culture (7000 to 5800 BC). At Damaidi in Ningxia, 3,172 cliff carvings dating to 60005000 BC have been discovered, "featuring 8,453 individual characters such as the sun, moon, stars, gods and scenes of hunting or grazing." These pictographs are reputed to be similar to the earliest characters confirmed to be written Chinese.[8][9] Excavation of a Peiligang culture site in Xinzheng county, Henan, found a community that flourished in 5,5004,900 BC, with evidence of agriculture, constructed buildings, pottery, and burial of the dead.[10] With agriculture came increased population, the ability to store and redistribute crops, and the potential to support specialist craftsmen and administrators.[11] In late Neolithic times, the Yellow River valley began to establish itself as a center of Yangshao culture (5000 BC to 3000 BC), and the first villages were founded; the most archaeologically significant of these was found at Banpo, Xi'an.[12] Later, Yangshao culture was superseded by the Longshan culture, which was also centered on the Yellow River from about 3000 BC to 2000 BC.

The early history of China is obscured by the lack of written documents from this period, coupled with the existence of later accounts that attempted to describe events that had occurred several centuries previously. In a sense, the problem stems from centuries of introspection on the part of the Chinese people, which has blurred the distinction between fact and fiction in regards to this early history.

Sounds like your theory that god created the earth 5000 years ago is proven wrong

Obviously I didn't dumb it down enough in this case... Here I'll try again....
Books says there is a God that has magical abilities, book says a bunch of towns and rulers exist, we find evidence of some of those rulers and towns, you use the notation of finding some of those towns and rulers to bolster a Belief of a God that has magical abilities..... That's Goofy...
What is "goofy" (actually it's beyond goofy, I would call it ignorant) is trying to dump ones own possible opinion into anyone else lap and even MORE ignorant, try to "labelduhmlabel" it as "theirs" (versus ones own opinion.)

My opinion of such "books", would be that they may (or may not, according to the credibility of the text)) attest to the beliefs and other aspects of civilizations before our time.

Is that too difficult to comprehend?

Why are you dumping YOUR own opinion of what YOU perhaps think about others opinions, into MY lap, as if you have any idea of what I think about the Earths creation?
Because obviously you don't...or maybe you do(?)--in that I sometimes ascertain to a DUHM as ROCKs theory, as far human behavior on this earth sometimes.

Cave paintings date back quite far (as has been previously posted a few times already as well) in many other cultures too.

YOUR point being?

That such artifacts, represent cultural aspects of numerous cultures and peoples, through out the span of civilization's history as we know it?

That would be a logical thought, if so.

You stated it better than I would have. My point being that writings and other objects of civilization date back tens of thousands of years, yet do not make their gods any more real than the jewish god

Not to mention Gobekli Tepe that has been dated by several methods to around 16,000 years ago but I think will be closer to 20,000 years ago when the actual megaliths were cut and set....

This actually brings into question the entire construct of the last ice age as it has been stated by archeologists... Claims are that the planet was cold and the Ice covered the northern hemisphere... In the Americas it was a mile thick down into the Ohio Valley ... If it was a Global Ice Age then the Ice should have been just as thick down into southern Europe also .... Such cave art and species found before 20 to 30 k years ago across Europe shows it was Not ice covered... So Why North America and No the same latitudes of Europe...

I submit that it was a Crustal Shift as theorized by Hapgood in 1958 and supported by Einstein... This shift wiped most of the planet, moved the Antarctic to the Pole from a moderate temp area and moved Canada out of the North Pole south to where it is allowing a rapid melt of the Ice and the fast sea rise which destroyed a previous civilization that thrived and traveled the planet During the last Ice Age... This catastrophic event explains the flood myths, and all the the latest finds around the globe that show global connections....

European Christians came to this country and built it on Blood!

The Murdered and damn near caused the Native American Population to become Extinct.
They Kidnapped Black People from Africa and Forced Them To Become Slaves , Forced them to change their names to European names , Christians raped black people , and Christians also forced Black People To Convert To Christianity.

Christians also murdered millions in World War's 1 and 2.

Christians Napalmed Vietnam , murdering 750,000 Innocent People when the Vietnamese did Nothing To Them.

Christians Slaughtered over 1,455,590 Innocent Iraqi's on a pack of lies.

Christians Slaughtered so many in Afghanistan that you really can not come up with an accurate number.

Christians Payed For Israel To Murder 1,450 Innocent , Unarmed , Palestinians in 2009 alone!

Christians also murdered over 5,000 People Because They Thought 1 Of Them Was A Drug Dealer!

Death does not scare me, as a fact...
I will probably have my head cut off!
