In order to know something is real, you would have to have evidence you can present to other people. So where is your evidence?
Seek Him!
You WILL have your evidence!

I know it's hard for you with your limited knowledge base but Chickens are made by Humans.... We Selected wild fowl and selectively bred them to produce a domesticated animal different in shape, habits from any wild game that came before... Before man domesticated them there were no Chickens.... But there were animals laying eggs for the last 300 to 500 Million years at a minimum...
What you and other do is start with a Belief (God Did It) and anything that supports your preconceived notion is ok, anything that shows those preconceived notions as Balderdash are ignored...
So which came first, The Egg... The egg was a method a organism developed 100's of millions of years ago to deal with environmental conditions and one of those organisms, after 100's of millions of years, became a bird... Then after several 1000 years of Human Breeding some of those birds became Chickens as man acted as a natural selector....
Can you grow a plant without it giving you the seed???
Same with Every other egg laying thing!
You couldn't even have a Human without a Human giving birth!
Pond scum does not give birth... it just is... Pond scum!
And... A rock cannot spread information as in DNA...
Information is given from intelligence!

Are you inferring that because there were real meeting places among the early catholic communities, the events compiled about Jesus (and probably an overwhelming majority of the OT) are indelibly accurate - just as surely as young George chopped down the cherry tree and threw a silver dollar across the Potomac?
Your point that the world does and has been comprised of countless myriads of both diverse and related cultures and subcultures is duly noted - and is far more likely to be discounted by the average congregation member than by those you choose to debate and deride here.
Thank you for reiterating the exact point lol.

I didn't say Spider-Man disproves the Bible. I said the fact that the Bible has real places names does not prove it's stories are true.
You hear people make the claim all the time. Oh, they dug up some city in the desert that is mentioned in Julio 2:15.
Who cares? Did they dig up a god too? Because that would be impressive.
Oooooo ahhhhhhh ...(I don't care what you DON'T think-stuff like this is STILL cool!!!!)

JERUSALEM, Israel -- Every year Israeli archaeologists dig up more artifacts which shed new light on Bible times. A museum that houses many of those ancient objects has been re-opened to the public.

The Israel Museum in Jerusalem first opened its doors in 1965. Now after three years of renovations, the museum is re-opening its unique treasure of archaeological artifacts, Judaica and fine art to the public.

"We're kind of a crossroads in the world," said James Snyder, the museum's director. "And certainly in ancient times this was so. But even after the western world entered the picture, somehow Jerusalem sits at the center of the universe. So ideally you could create an encyclopedic museum."

Snyder said the museum is the largest, most active museum in Israel's region of the world.

"What we have here in the end indeed is a really rich and strong universal collection of 500,000 objects beginning a million and half years ago and coming to contemporary art today," Snyder added.

Thousands of artifacts on display in the museum help to bring biblical times to life.

"The archaeology wing has a story to tell that you can't get anywhere else in the world," said Michal Dayagi-Mendels, chief curator of archaeology.

The wing focuses on story of the land of Israel through a narrative about man in the country - how he lived, whom he worshipped, and even how he was buried.

"We are trying to emphasize the story of the Bible - the birth of monotheism, the first and second temple periods and the emergence of the three monotheistic religions that you can see in one gallery," Dayagi-Mendels added.

An inscription from the 9th century B.C. is the earliest of archaeological evidence of the dynasty of King David.

Two shrines from the about the 7th to 8th century B.C. were discovered about 30 miles apart. They show the struggle that existed between belief in the one God of the Bible and pagan idol worship at the time.

"We learned a lot about the living from the burials," Dayagi-Mendels continued.

Archaeologists found two silver amulets inside one burial chamber. They both bear verses from the Book of Numbers -- the earliest biblical verses ever found, dating to about 600 B.C. predating the Dead Sea scrolls by 400 years.

Also on display for the first time is a huge crusader period fresco discovered near Gethsemane.

"It's very exciting to have archaeology and make it so clear, so fascinating that for all those thought in the past see something we cannot come close to they will be absorbed into it," Dayagi-Mendels said.

How stupid can you be wrote:
<quoted text>Catholic?
Are there people of other faiths that have been saved?
I have no doubt!
Did Paul shut up in Acts? NO!
So please provide the verse, or verses that says I should shut up, and then we both can get off topix!
I personally think there are people of ALL faiths worthy of "salvation"..INCLUDI NG Catholics.

and no one told any one to shut up, I merely stated the same statement as above, just with different words, to YaA, for acting like Catholics can't hear or something.

Dolt.

REv 7:6
And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. 5O of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. 6Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nephthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.

Are YOU stuck on topix? Do you need help on how to step away from it's dribble? It's not really that difficult....

Where was that? Please enlighten, as actually I had no actual "further pathway intentions of going anywhere with it" planned out.

Ummmm me thinks you are perhaps a bit too cynical-that not ALL the world sits in plot and plan deception, and low-life-CON mode(s), that SOME of us find that very type of thing to be of the utmost nature of VILEness and CONtemptability, equatable to those having no ethics OR true decency per say?

I've never had a fascination for the history of the Semitic tribes and the "Holy Lands," why should I cultivate one? Clearly you were enamored with the Naked Archaeologist series. I am not in the least bit intrigued. As you have pointed out, there are countless other cultures and far more than enough troves of other histories to entertain myself with, should I so choose to be entertained.

<quoted text>So... taking the 10 commandments, and re-writing them, changing the Sabbath to Sunday is the original texts?
Look!
Do you Believe Jesus died on the Cross one time, for all sins,
past, and future, that you do not have to do anything, but Love the Lord, your neighbor, and your enemies, and Trust in Jesus???
Or does mass, and calling a man "Father" negate Christ's teachings?
YaA as far as all that's concerned, I think you are (not) looking at the bigger picture of it all, close enough.

Catholics believe in Jesus, the cross, the golden rule and faith.

Look a few things up before you run your clueless pie hole and just ASSUME you know what you're talking about-because honestly, you are sounding like you have no idea.

Look up Homily, Stations of the Cross, Lent blahblahblah.

The traditions of culture and custom, will all boil back down to the SAME belief, ulitmetely.

Just because someone brushes their teeth with a different type toothbrush than you, doesn't mean they don't believe in toothbrushes.

And just because you might not SEE one sitting in the specific pew-brushholder where YOU think it should be sitting, doesn't mean it doesn't exist...as pewbrushholders aren't what actually matters anyway.

Maybe I prefer to keep my pewbrushholder rituals private, because I really don't care about just "impressing" others for the sake of just that, because as many of us know, just sitting in a pewbrushholder regulary, does not make a toothpick, a toothbrush.

MMM k?

If the Bible is about the spiritual "world" and science cannot comment on it, then why are you concerned with science at all? Let science do what it does best: explain nature. And you can have your Bible to help you with the emotional and spiritual stuff.
Easy peasy.
Also, we do not "know" that the universe was "created". By using the word "created" you are infering an intelligence. You're using a simple form of the Cosmological Argument, which, as most philosophers will tell you, is a load of bollocks.
As I said to you or someone else on here, how does your argument get you to the God of the Bible? Even if we grant that you are correct (for the sake of argument, mind you) it ONLY gets you to the point of stating that the universe was created.
That says absolutely nothing about what did it. It could have been cosmic hamsters or Zeus or me.
What is your line that connects this flimsy argument to your own personal deity?
And why is it so important for you to prove God by logic and reason? If it wasn't important we wouldn't be having a conversation. Yet faith is about faith, not evidence, right?
The need to be correct normally indicates the possibility of being wrong. I seek truth because I know I could be wrong. I want to find the best path to truth. But if you truly have faith then you don't need to do that, right?
Either the Universe was created by a Superior Intelligence or it came into existence,from nothing,by nothing.
If it came into existence from nothing,caused by nothing and from there we end up with the Universe as we currently know it.
Our planet and the life contained therein,all as a result of Nothing taking control and effectively bringing into existence this awesome universe and magnificent planet we live in.
Then I would have to proclaim,The wonders of nothingness are wonderful to behold

YOU ask "Yet faith is about faith, not evidence, right?"

Says I...You are wrong,but that is the propaganda that Atheists
promote"blind faith"
My faith demands evidence and that evidence has been more that amply supplied to my satisfaction,by GOD
You are unable to accept or understand the evidence that God has provided me and therefore you arbitrarily dismiss it as false.
You can call it magic,delusions,waving a magic wand,coincidences
What you are unable to do is,disprove it..
You can not believe,but neither can you disprove the evidence,your attempts are futile,therefore your frustration
