Ever see a critter read a book?
(huh...does that require religion or evolution...seeing a critter actually Read a book....huh...)
My requirement for superior reading is a book that really grabs my attention, is interesting, with little tidbits of factualities that I can learn something from.
Jesus had a bunch of other guys scribing about him.
Duh.
Their is not a word written in the days Jesus was claimed to be on earth that exists today. People wrote about the supposed Jesus after the fact.
I say again, if reading and writing made a being superior, then why did Jesus not leave us his writings?
Why am I to believe someones claims of what the supposed Jesus said? If it was so damn important, I think a god could write it himself so no one could screw it up. As it is now, we have many various interpretations of what Jesus wanted due to lack of confirmed and consistent written words by what you claim were his scribes.

If Christians would quit posting,these devil worshipers would have no one to argue with. You are causing more harm than good by posting.The Bible says cast not thy pearls before swine:And if they will not accept the word ,shake off the dust of thy feet and leave :The Principle: Casting Pearls Before Swine
"Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces." (Matthew 7:6).
And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, leave that place and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them."
Of course, these words of Jesus are allegorical. I doubt that any were literally casting pearls before swine. The meaning is pretty simple to figure out; "Do not persist in offering what is sacred or of value to those who have no appreciation for it, because your gift will not only become contaminated and be despised, your generous efforts could also be rebuffed and perhaps even openly attacked."
The "dogs" and "swine" here stand for the unappreciative and worldly; unappreciative and uncaring men and women who belittle the value of what is offered to them. The swine have no appreciation for either the beauty nor the value of the pearls under their feet.
Your life, time, energy, opportunities and abilities are God's pearls. They're His! You and I are merely His stewards overseeing His possessions (1 Corinthians 6:19,20; 4:1,2; 1 Peter 4:8-11). We must show discernment as to what use we make of God's possessions. It is possible to waste them either by using them when we should not.
Examples of the Principle Applied
"Jesus therefore perceiving that they were intending to come and take Him by force, to make Him king, withdrew again to the mountain to be by Himself alone." (John 6:15).
Jesus was very popular at this stage of His ministry. The main reason for this is that He had just miraculously fed five thousand plus people. The purpose was twofold; the people were hungry, and Jesus wanted to illustrate the more important spiritual bread, the bread of life, that He was offering them in His teachings.
But the people did not want the bread of life. They wanted more of the physical bread to eat. They began following Him for the wrong reason (vs. 26-27). Jesus offered them spiritual bread, but they did not want that (vs. 40-41). When Jesus refuses to duplicate the earlier miracle, continuing instead to redirect their attention toward the words of life, the people finally lose interest and leave (vs. 66). They were unappreciative of the pearls Jesus was offering them. Jesus simply refused to allow His efforts to be wasted on those who had little interest in His purpose and mission.
On another occasion, those who continued to ignore the implications of His earlier miracles, demanded He provide yet more. They were testing Him and were not really interested in what these signs signified about Jesus' identity. Jesus simply refused their request (Matthew 16:1-4). He was not here to perform for them or to satisfy their curiosity (Luke 23:8,9).
Jesus made it quite clear that His disciples were to move on when a city indicated its lack of interest in the gospel offered it by preachers and teachers (Matthew 10:11-14). Paul continued this practice (Acts 13:44-52; 18:5-7).And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, leave that place and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them."
Do you really feel that some one is a "devil worshiper" if they worship a god that demanded they kill animals for ritual animal sacrifice,(pouring the blood on themselves) that demanded that they be HAPPY as they kill children, that demanded they attack and kill every man,rape every woman? I find this to be devil worship, worshiping a god that demands this, do you?

What if the writings began immediately but didn't come forth until later? Life was different then. There were no publishers, and no printing presses. You don't know

Sorry but our ability to think and reason makes us superior. Situational instances don't change that.

The Jewish people, wanting to be the master race above other people, wanted a "savior" to lead them to victory over the Roman empire who ruled them. It had nothing to do with a god, they wanted a super warrior.
Seeing how well the religious leaders controlled the Jewish people and how wealthy the religious leaders where the "new testament" was created to control the masses and gain great wealth.
Funny how in America where people make slurs about middle east people they think Jesus was a white or black man but not an Arab

Three reasons I think little was written until after His death.
1. There was little time. They traveled with Him and He taught constantly. They spent a lot of time figuring things out when He said it. His teachings were above most men.
2. His countenance was not that anyone should desire Him. He seemed a plain and simple man. He did not seem like the Son of God to most (at least what they assumed that would look like). They thought He was going to be a king and relieve them of Roman rule. They misunderstood His purpose was to save them in the next life, not this one.
3. They were afraid for their lives. They just watched their master killed and they knew He had the power to prevent it.

While we have greater ability than other animals we are not "superior" In fact the way we destroy the earth and wage wars I would say we are inferior in some ways.
In any ecosystem all organisms have a role and are needed. If not for insects we would be neck deep in trash. Bee spreading pollen working with plants to reproduce
We take our greater ability with out accepting the greater responsibility that comes with it. How is that superior?

When Muslims want to force every one to accept Islam and kill people who do not the christians say they are evil..
Yet the christian cult wants to force every one to accept Christianity and have killed people who did not.
When Muslims do what christians did they are evil but christians are good? HMMM

You mean like hundreds of the thousands of icons and artifacts from Catholic saints, wood from the Ark, and the Shroud of Turin? Those hoaxes? Or do you mean staged "miracles" like charismatic evangelists come up with?

What if some smart people who saw how well the religious leaders controlled the masses and heard how they killed some nut that spoke out against them wrote a new book making that nut a new god and used it to control the masses in other countries? Of course killing any one that did not convert or spoke out against the new god helped them to force this form of control on them.(why else did they kill people who did not convert?)

The ten commandments do not apply to christians, they are for every one else.
Proof of this is how much christians lie, steal, rape, murder (If they did not slaughter people who did not convert no one would have become a christian)

u do realize evolution like u want to take place happens over billions of years and that humans havent even been on the earth even close to a million yrs yet? i couldnt expect much more i guess cuz u still believe a god that says the world will last a thousand but not thousands of yrs and then try to validate the world lasting longer than 2 thousand yrs by sayin we dont know the time scale that god uses or something to the effect that a day is a thousand yrs to god and a thousand yrs is a day or some other crazy thing just so u can validate believing in the false prophecy that the holy bible is full of.
You guys keep telling us that... "It takes BILLIONS of years"....
No it doesn't really.... Micro evolution occurs in just a few generations (Hair color, nose size, dogs to poodles kind of thing)
Yet, all the bacterium generated over the recorded history of science... none has ever been anything other than what they are!
You over look the part of evilution that says a dino turned into a bird... what did that bird mate with? another dino that turned into a bird??? NO!
God saved me!
NOT the thought, or teaching, or upbringing, but God Himself!
Now I see the truth of life...
Life is choices, who will you serve?
I used to serve myself, and satan, doing what "I" wanted to do, or what I thought I wanted to do...
When you eyes are opened to the truth, you realize just how wrong you were...
That is what we hope, and pray to happen to all of you!
It would be great to have one of you saved, so you could
come on here, and speak the truth!

Then what do evolutionists believe man came from?
5 of 15 Questions for Evolutionists:
1. How did life originate?
2. How did the DNA code originate?
3. How could mutations—accidental copying mistakes (DNA ‘letters’ exchanged, deleted or added, genes duplicated, chromosome inversions, etc.)—create the huge volumes of information in the DNA of living things? How could such errors create 3 billion letters of DNA information to change a microbe into a microbiologist?
4. Why is natural selection, a principle recognized by creationists, taught as ‘evolution’, as if it explains the origin of the diversity of life?
5. How did new biochemical pathways, which involve multiple enzymes working together in sequence, originate?

Christianity is a cult. Preachers jump from verse to verse so you can not grasp the concept of the verse, instead of answering hard questions they attack you for asking (you do not understand the bible is the same answer over and over)
Killing any one who is not a part of your religion, all of the Abrahamic religions are cults
Hahahahaa!
This coming from you???
We've read the Bible, and still agree with it (some more than others) You post snippets to make it sound ignorant...

I'm against it because what Ever argument you make for it is the same argument that can be made for 2 men and a woman, 3 women and a man or 10 men and 10 women getting married... Such a move on a Federal Level to redefine the term Marriage allows for the next bump in culture that leads to 4 men and a Goat once goats are given equal status by the PETA folks.... I have not a homophobic thought in my head, have gay friends and could give a crap about who does who in their private lives.... I would have Just as much of a issue with a Heterosexual Pride Parade as a Gay Pride Parade as I not only don't give a crap who does who I think it should not be made a public display...
But Marriage has been defined as One Man and One Woman and to redefine it allows for a toe in the door for three women and a horse....
GREAT POST!
As I don't care either, of who does what behind their own doors...
You redefine marriage, and the Sandusky's of the world will be free!
