The big bang theory ,would be far more stupid than this in comparison. But , Would you believe that this "super energy force " that evolution claims created everything from one small speck,would let a person take this and create millions of cakes. Let's say we heard on the news,"Woman drops one small speck of flour on to floor,than for unknown reason ,this speck created over a million beautiful,frosted wedding cakes,including the little bride & groom sitting on top !" No,you nor I would believe it !

Reading and understanding are worlds apart. Your "TruthIS" is a glaring example of that.
"In the year of our lord" is merely the long form English translation of A.D. That would be obvious to one who is not blinded by faith.
There is absolutely NO REASON to have a theologian teaching scripture in a public school.
The proposed legislation was not for religious Bible study, it was to use excerpts of the Bible for secondary school humanities. Things like how and why the Sistine Chapel was painted, the house arrest of Galileo Galilei, how Charlemagne became Emperor and the creation of his laws, the Catholic and Protestant Reformations, the writings of Dante and Voltaire, the European Witch and the Scopes trials, etc. are a few of the thousands of ways that the Bible is interwoven with western culture and history - THAT HAVE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH SALVATION OF SOULS.
Right, churches are good for scriptural studies.
And I personally have no problem with any of the rest of what you've mentioned...where'd you learn that at?

Carl Sagan was an agnostic and when asked why he was not an Atheist,responded
"An atheist has to know a lot more than I know. An atheist is someone who knows there is no god. By some definitions atheism is very stupid."
Not only that,but in their irrational frame of mind,they insist on debating an issue that they claim does not exist.
Illogical logic 101
Carl Sagan attempts to debate with a creationist

Dear "NEPHILIM"
At the Dr.s office today I was reading the Watchtower January 2013 and came across an article "I Have Finally Found True Freedom" The cover title was,"Should You Fear the End of the World?"
May I suggestyou go to www.jw.org click on publications then enter Watchtower January 2013. When the magazine appears scan the table of contents to the above article.
As I read the article it made me think of you. You owe it to yourself to read that. It won't hurt you and you will not be the worse for it.
I usually don't respond to a person who admits they are an apostate and refer to themselves sa "NEPHILIM" but when I read that article I automatically thought of you and decided it might be worth the effort to refer you to it.

Ahhh, typical religie, it knows the mind and intentions of its deity and assumes it knows mine. I have the handy dandy Atheist handbook right here and it states, "No Atheist shall have to give one whit how or why our universe or life came to be". Obviously according to the handy dandy Atheist handbook an Atheist can call religies beliefs absurd and ridiculous without caring or knowing how we came to be humans.

yep you guys should stick into tight groups and talk among yourselves, maybe move to a piece of land in Guyana and set up shop so you don't have to deal with all those facts and rational arguments.... Then you guys can sit around and say goofy crap all day until it's time to have those evening drinks.....
Remember, consider that library book on speaking proper English. Enough with your "YEP". "

Watchtower May 15 1970, p.315 Avoiding the Snare of Homosexuality

Helpful in this regard, then, is appreciating the fact that autoeroticism or masturbation is no mere innocent pastime but rather a practice that can lead to homosexual acts.

Watchtower 1973 Sep 15 pp.564-5 Breaking Free of Self-Abuse-Why? How?

A MOST COMMON PRACTICE
In this age of promiscuity one must agree with the doctors about the general "universality" of masturbation. Look at the statistics: "Every serious statistical study that we have shows clearly that ... at least ninety-five per cent of boys and young men between thirteen and twenty-five years of age pass through periods of habitual masturbation of varying lengths," says one authority on the subject. As for girls, this source says that "forty to fifty per cent are found to actually masturbate." ...
