SO, WHICH was it (wife or concubine) you Christian Bible Scholars? WHICH?
This is simply ONE of hundreds of contradictions in the comic book that YOU say is the Word of God.
SILLY PEOPLE!
AND no I don't expect an answer, but thanks for playing!!
Concubine
1.official mistress in some cultures: a woman who is the lover of a wealthy married man but with the social status of a subordinate form of wife, often kept in a separate home, especially in imperial China
2.woman lover living with man: a woman who lives with a man and has a sexual relationship with him but is not married to him

There "was" no "void." There "was" no "before" time.
How can so many Christians be absolutely perplexed at the concept of "no time before time, no space before space" and simultaneously insist that they understand God? It is similar to saying that they can't grasp what a null set is, but can clearly picture infinity.
Show me -4 on a yardstick that hasn't been milled from a board that hasn't been cut from a tree that hasn't been planted yet.

I am a man, thus I use mans logic. I do not use fairy tale logic.
So you think something on earth is irreducibly complex? Well most of the scientists who study this stuff do not agree with your claim.
So why should I listen to you over them?
Please give reference to the Bible verse that says...

just my opinion wrote:
Isn't there a way that it could be taught and the parents have a choice as to whether their child did or did not attend that specific class? I myself think it is a good idea, but I can't speak for everyone. There is so much going on in our schools nowadays, maybe for some this will help. It's scary how things have become. When I attended high school, there was a class there, but it was our choice as to whether or not to attend. This is just my opinion.
How about the student I think people tend to push religion on there children which is basically all this bible study crap is another way to try and shove religion down children's throats.

THIS is funny. I know you're not into logic, but what is the reason God created Satan?
How did Satan get into the Garden?
God created ALL and is ALL powerful and he didn't see the Devil coming? Seems he has less power than Iron Man...
One more logic comment for you: Let me see if I have it correct...Jesus is God in the flesh, so GOD sent HIMSELF to be killed for OUR sins to save US from HIMSELF.
WOW!!!
Fact is.... I love Logic, use it every day!
Computer programmers have a tendency to do that....
Not to mention all the other things I do, that require Logic!
Read the Bible for yourself...
You might find the answers you seek!
As for me.... God showed up, and saved me, and
Nothing anyone could say, or do, will make me Love Him any less!
Hope you get the chance to know what I'm talking about!

I don't know that one but there are quite a few that are pretty crazy, like Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death. Such evil must be purged from Israel Deuteronomy 17:12 or Whoever sacrifices to any god, except the Lord alone, shall be doomed Exodus 22:19, and my favorite one As you approach a town to attack it, first offer its people terms for peace. If they accept your terms and open the gates to you, then all the people inside will serve you in forced labor. But if they refuse to make peace and prepare to fight, you must attack the town. When the LORD your God hands it over to you, kill every man in the town. But you may keep for yourselves all the women, children, livestock, and other plunder. You may enjoy the spoils of your enemies that the LORD your God has given you. Deuteronomy 20:10-14

<quoted text>Figures that you were a tea party republican.
So Obama leads the charge to get Bin Laden and Bush failed to do so, yet you claim he cannot handle terrorists?
Bush could not get the guy who was responsible for the greatest terrorist attack America has known. Bus said he did not even think about him much(Bin Laden). Now that is a failure.
"Obama leads the charge to get Bin Laden"
In the words of my brother....
I call "BS" on this!
Obama was forced to pull the trigger, he'd rather had played golf with Osama!
ANY POTUS would have had to... When he was found!
He'd have called it "Work place violence" if he could have, and give him three hot's, n a cot for life!
Obama is NOT a Good American!

this could be a good thing for the state of Kentucky - there needs to be some structure around how people teach religion in our schools.
Last time I checked unless your school was a christian or some other religious academy they should not be teaching it do to a little law that keeps church and state separate

<quoted text>If god murdered everyone on the planet in that flood, then I do not think he is good at all. In fact I call this evil.
Do you have evidence a good god exists?
Genesis
6:5 And God saw that the wickedness of man [was] great in the
earth, and [that] every imagination of the thoughts of his
heart [was] only evil continually.
6:6 And the LORD repented that he had made man on the earth, and
it grieved him at his heart.
6:7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created,
from the face of the earth, both man and beast, and the
creeping animal, and the fowls of the air; for I repent that I
have made them.
6:8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

Note the word "Evil"...
Much like today with the Baby killers, and all that other ILL garbage!

The truth is that science has shown us time and again how close we are to are primate cousins and because it goes against a book written by Jews and Egyptians thousands of years ago you are dead set on the fact they are right no matter how much evidence there is against it.

11 I, even I, am the Lord,

12 I have revealed and saved and proclaimed—
I, and not some foreign god among you.
You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord,“that I am God.
13 Yes, and from ancient days I am he.
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End."
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.
So you interpret this literally? So something can come from nothing and intelligence needs no intelligent creator? According to the passages here, this would be so, yet you guys keep insisting otherwise.
You can't have it both ways pal.

Just because a science class is posted on YouTube, it does not make YouTube a scientific source.
The next Christian could upload a sermon and call YouTube a valid source of Christian instruction.
How about if I record a video off of YouTube onto my phone, then by proxy, my phone is a valid source of scientific knowledge, and I'll let you YouTube scholars toss that around.
ROFL
No one posted the video as a source, so your claim has no relevance.
The site was posted as a place to learn from.
If you think it is a poor place to learn from, then show your reasons. Otherwise you are making no sense.
