I don't see how they can study "the Bible" 2 school anyhow. I suggest studying it 2 home. It would be much more effective that way anyhow.
Yes it would..because that's where the responsibility in teaching ethics, decency, respect of others, etc is SUPPOSED to start.

And to think, some parents would seemingly rather see their kids out acting like brainless thugs.

Go figure.

Yeah, but if I found Reagan I'd have to cut a deal with Jesus that would hamstring the nation intellectually for decades. I can't live with that kind of thing on my conscience. Plus I hate old westerns.

A number of series have been influence by mormons. I have to say I do find the syfy imagination of these writers entertaining.
This fusion of religion, science fiction, and fantasy is not unusual to Utahans. Brigham Young University alumni Orson Scott Card (Enderís Game) and Stephenie Meyer (Twilight Series), both practicing Mormons, include religious themes in their stories. Ender Wigginís father is Roman Catholic, and his mother is a Latter-day Saint, while Twilight begins with a biblical quote on its frontispiece,........
Card also has two other series, Homecoming Saga and Alvin Maker, the former placing the Book of Mormon figures in a science-future setting, and the latter retelling the life of Latter-day Saint prophet Joseph Smith in a frontier-fantasy setting.
Another Latter-day Saint, Glen A. Larson, regularly incorporated religious ideas into the first-run-version of Battlestar Galactica. This fusion has been institutionalized by BYUís yearly science fiction writing convention Life, The Universe, and Everything.

It makes sense that there are a bunch of Mormons writing fantasy. The Book of Mormon is Bible fan fiction, albeit terribly written.

"And it came to pass...and it came to pass...and it came to pass...and it came to pass...etc."

Oh yeah, science and science fiction go hand-in-hand. Duh. That's why it's called science fiction.
With the Bible you don't have to add the fiction. It's already there. It's just that it sucks. A movie based on the Bible would be a crapfest worse than Beverley Hills Chihuahua 3.

Must all be the same religie. Odds are very much against 5 religies with the IQs of 3 finding the same topics thread at the same time.

Rational people realize they are all just movies, not reality.
Even the title, "The Greatest STORY Ever Told" should give you a clue to that.

I simply stated... being in an altered state resulting from a "high" on anything like "schrooms" (or anything similar), was NOT in the same category.
Let me tale a guess here, I you thought LSD was cool once upon a time too?
Not me. Not ever.

The only similarities between the many churches are the ones that are clearly claimed in the bible. No ghost needed here.

quoted text>First, how can you speak for all of what that feeling, feels like?
Second, I have felt this emotion towards what I believed. I was once very religious. The feeling I had did affect my body and mind. But does this feeling mean a god is real or does it just mean my belief was real? I think the latter is so.
So me pointing out your hypocrisy is hypocrisy?
Unlike you, I do not condemn judging the feelings one has in a spiritual state. I think it should be open for discussion. But I did want to point out that you did judge ones feelings and thus were clearly hypocritical.
Evidently you do not even know what hypocritical means.

The recent series, the bible was pretty good. I noted how it portrayed the religious leaders as the typical tyrannical dictators and politicians.
King David was not a good man. Why the bible would insist the messiah had to be in his blood line is beyond me. Monarchies.
And no, American government is not based upon these concepts.

Let us talk about rational people.
Those of us who believe in God, believe he gave us the gift of life and intelligence.
Because we are alive and intelligent,mankind has accomplished much. We have created and we have invented,thanks to our creator.
What we have been unable to create or invent is,life and intelligence.
On the other hand,there are those who claim that there is no God.
They claim that we owe our life and intelligence to some nonexisting ,nonliving nonintelligent power which was able to somehow,create living intelligent beings.
What caused these miraculous events to take place is a mystery.
No one can tell us why,when or how these events may have occurred.
So,based on the claims of Atheists,Evolutionists and unbelieving Scientists,living intelligent beings are unable to duplicate what a nonexistent ,nonliving and nonintelligent power was able to accomplish.
In other words, in their view, nonexistent, nonliving and nonintelligence is superior to existing,living and intelligent beings.
Yes,there is A God,a superior being who created us.
To believe otherwise is to discard reason and reality and succumb to insanity and unbelief.
There is one rock we believe in,Jesus Christ....And he lives
Fossilized rocks are exactly that,fossilized rocks

Our God lives and Christ Jesus is Lord.

You are right. King David,when living according ti his human nature,was not a good man.
The bible makes it very plain that there is no one who is GOOD.
Christ made that very plain when he stated"There is only one who is good,,That is God.
The key here is that David confessed his sins,humbled himself befor God and was forgiven,as you well know.
And that is what the bible,old and New testament is all about.
Forgiveness. That is why Christ had to come and die on the cross.
Not only does the Bible claim that Christ is from David's bloodline,but also,the prostitute Rahab.....
Merely points to the fact that our ancestors were all sinners,bar none.....
The Bible tells it like it is,not what our corrupt human nature
thinks it should be

Gibberish, drivel and absolute balderdash. I don't know anyone who says "that we owe our life and intelligence to some nonexisting ,nonliving nonintelligent power which was able to somehow,create living intelligent beings."
Your inability to extricate yourself from your belief in your god and the >personification of a non-god< indicates the depth of your delusions.

Laong known problem with delusional mind, They take such stories and movies as reality.... Most of the delusional religious fanatics in their minds think the movies such as The Passion of the christ, Moses, the 10 commandment are reality shows on par with Cops versus actually being on par with Reno 911

<quoted text>Maybe they will... Evolution never stopped... All that's needed is a event the wipes most life on the planet and change the environment significantly and wait a few million years.... Changes in species would happen rather quickly if the environment changed drastically, The more drastic the change to more quickly evolutionary changes happen...

Give you an example...

Say the planet gets smacked with a asteroid that had an abundance of highly radioactive isotopes and caused the earth to have radiation levels 100 times today's levels.... Most life would die in the impact and over time other life would die out that could not survive the increased radiation.... But there would be some life forms that not only survive but Thrive in the new high radiation environment... The radiation would cause fast mutational process and there would be vast regions without predators that the various mutations would begin to fill all the niches .... We have no way of knowing what the results of such would be in a 100 million years... You could have 20 foot long cockroaches and 6,000 lb spiders building spaceships...
Interesting thought
