This is your 'defense' of the Book of Revelation?
"for all we REALLY know," does not entertain any relationship with metaphors. For all we REALLY know, it was written by a false prophet, a madman or even by Satan himself, as none of its prophecies (excuse me - METAPHORS) have conclusively come to pass.
Are you one who can't wait for the next doomsday tent revival to make the circuit through your town? Are you one to pour over Edgar Cayce's 'readings,' or to watch documentaries about Nostradamus over and over? Are you one of those who suspected that civilization was going to tip over the edge in Y2K or that a global cataclysm was looming around the winter solstice of 2012?
Let me tell you something mister-that Y2K stuff--took muh feet about fwee years to recooperate from! Flippin stuff-and tipped muh memory banks to the outer edge of Columbus's flatplate earth!

Do you remember when Saddam burned the oil wells, and "metaphorically" blackened the land of Kuwait? You probably thought someone was "literally" using cwayons, to cowor in between the lines though huh.

What was the original statement/question of that particular point debate again?
It would've been kind of Illchronilogically illogical to put the book of Revelations in the middle of the books of the New Testament? I would agree lol.
How could you miss the point? You stated that Revelation chronologically belonged at the end of the New Testament. I state that it should never have been considered for inclusion ANYWHERE.
Would you like to take a stab at defending the ejection of the Apocrypha?

Nice metaphor. If you're an idiot.
We aren't talking books. Nobody was. You made repeated assertions (like that you "wouldn't rule any geneological lineage out, Pangea WAS one big land mass.") that plate tectonics would have had some impact on the locations/origin of early humans. You got smacked down because you're an idiot with a stupid idea that was hundreds of millions of years off.
To clarify, the continents were, for all intents and purposes, in their current configuration millions of years before anything remotely human evolved. Nakalipithecus is around 10 million years old. I mean... Pangea?? Really?
Go look at a map, idiot. By the end of the Cretaceous, the current continents were seperated and Africa was an island. Your Pangea theory is simply another rambling that appears to be logical unless you actually know something, just like pretty much everything else you say. You should write for answersingenesis.com , because you clearly have a knack for writing things that people of faith and ignorance would buy. At least if you fixed that whole "I can't write proper English" thing.
<quoted text>
This isn't something I have to "make up my mind" about. And this is not a difficult concept. Just because somebody can be logical in one scenario and faithful in another does NOT mean that they "harmoniously exist", you dolt. They are mutually exclusive and CANNOT "harmoniously exist". You're trying to act as though a person's thoughts on two different matters, and the nature of those thoughts, must be harmonious simply because they have them both. That's stupid and wrong. People are contradictory all the time, moron. I mean, have you never read anything you've written here? Full of contradiction.
I can buy a bottle of vinegar. I can buy a box of baking soda. I can hold them both at the same time and it means NOTHING. They cannot "harmoniously exist". They destroy one another if placed together in the same location. Stop being an idiot.
<quoted text>
WTF does that retardation have to do with anything? Of course ice is a mineral. And "fact" doesn't say so, the criteria of the term "mineral" says so. It's merely a label. And there is no "faith" in anything of the sort, idiot. Why don't you understand what faith is? And why do you keep making broken arguments that any slightly coherent adult could refute? Are you just trolling or something?

You however, were NOT the author of the book, so your opinion on chapter placement is actually irrelevant (imagine that).

Maybe the Maccabees part? Mostly because I have FAITH, based upon post-preliminary readings, that there is in FACT, at least some comparable informative pieces to contrast information with.

No, you're wrong. Educate yourself before blabbering on in public. Studies have been done on this topic. You should try reading them. I know it's a stretch because it's not the Bible or whatever, but you should give it a shot anyway.

Turns out that some animals, if given the choice between a willing partner of the opposite sex and one of the same sex, will choose a homosexual partner almost exclusively. There are gay animals. It's a reality. Stop denying it.

<quoted text>Not that the origin matters to the context of why humans have different color skin, but the evidence points to Africa first. Now if new evidence is found, then new origins might be claimed. Do you have one shred of evidence Adam and Eve were the first humans?
The oldest human bones and pre-human bones have been found in Africa. Bipedal apes bones millions of years old.
I think the oldest bones of a human like creature outside of Africa is no more than a hundred thousand years old.
What's a prehuman bone?

No I don't, and I didn't claim to. I'm not trying to trap you in something, I just wanted to know. So claiming there is evidence (without providing it) and then asking where the proof is for my beliefs is no different an answer than the kind that you complain about from Christians.

That is why they are above every one else because they are from the original pure jewish blood line and are the master race. Some of that has changed, they now let blacks in their church.
They claim that the garden of Eden is in Minnesota
Whoa. Wrong on so many levels.
1. Jesus visited Central America in the Book of Mormon.
2. We believe that all the worshipers of Christ in the Book of Mormon were killed off and only the evil ones remained (we believe them to be the ancestors of most of the inhabitants of Central and North American natives). Mormons are not their descendants nor do we claim to be a superior race. We are made up of many races. Nor do we claim any bloodline.
3. Joseph Smith received a revelation that the Garden of Eden was located in Missouri, not Minnesota

I will now doubt everything you say because of your major inaccuracies of things so easy to look up before trying to state them as fact.

I don't think however, there's ANY "pure" bloodlines left-not given the history of mankind! Not even in RI red chickens, who generally lay brown eggs-then oops, where'd that cream colored one come from?:-)

Isn't there some sort of envirodome around those parts? Or are you referencing the one in the Bible, which then would be debatable according to geological studies on locations as referenced from the book.
Are they referencing it as such, or perhaps they have a really nice backyard garden of their own that they've created?

Non, not enough facts presented enough to form opinion upon sir...

I know you feel that way now, but if I'm right, the veil over your remembrance will be lifted. You would remember living with God before going to earth. You would remember choosing to come to earth to follow His plan and have your faith in Him tested. You would recognize His face immediately. So if you are able to put yourself in those shoes, would you still react the same?

<quoted text>I always have an open mind.

If we are here to have our faith tested, then God has failed. There are billions of people on this planet, as I type this, that have never been introduced to any religion (much less yours). All they have is their abilities to observe and draw conclusions based on observations. These people never had even the tiniest glimmer of faith to begin with. There is no reason to believe they will have any when they die. How is that lack of faith tested? Why didn't God give them any faith or knowledge of him? What is their fate?

I've honestly never had any more faith in God than I had in Santa or anything else that I was told about and didn't question at the time. They were all built up and portrayed to be real when I was a child. Every one of them have tumbled down under mild scrutiny. I have no faith to test.

Omniscience and omnipotence. God destroyed my faith with the brain he gave me, and he always knew that I would use my brain in this way. I was created to do exactly that. So, was I created to be damned? Am I to be punished for how God made me?
I believe that all will have the opportunity to be taught the entire gospel, whether in this life or in the Spirit world. So they would have the chance to accept it. The Holy Ghost can be felt by anyone though, so people that have never been involved in a religion can still be prompted to do good works.
No you were not created to be automatically damned. Not so I think you are damned. I do believe God gave you your brain to help others, not degrade others and use it to disprove His existence.
