I already know the answer. I'm guessing you claim to be a christian, thought you were a bible reader I was wrong.
You're tight,, I haven't memorized the Bible yet. What I claim to be? What do you think? I could have googled the passage, and responded as though I knew it by heart. But, I don't want to use an artificial electronic media, then pretend I'm an expert.

Reminds me of an incident in the 70's. There was a Bible quoting contest in Alabama where the loser shot the winner.

1st Corinthians
1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish,
foolishness; but to us who are saved, it is the power of God.
1:19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
1:20 Where [is] the wise? where [is] the scribe? where [is] the
disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of
this world?
1:21 For when in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not
God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save
them that believe.
1:22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek wisdom:
1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a
stumbling-block, and to the Greeks foolishness;
1:24 But to them who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ
the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the
weakness of God is stronger than men.
1:26 For ye see your calling, brethren, that not many wise men
after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble [are called]:
1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to
confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the
world to confound the things which are mighty;
1:28 And base things of the world, and things which are
despised, hath God chosen, and things which are not, to bring
to naught things that are:
1:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who from God is made to
us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and
redemption:
1:31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him
glory in the Lord.

"God will let man do" anything, just as long as it's possible in the first place.
It's almost as if God wasn't even there.

I believe that the Earth is far older than the human species and that the universe is far older than the Earth. Man's understanding through science may not have gotten everything 100% correct or ever will, but it is a work in progress. Observation supports the vast bulk of scientific deductions far better than lore does. I do not place any faith in any primitive notion that we live in any god's fish bowl.
The beginning of the universe "predates" time, and therefore "predates" causality. "Created" and "began" are both therefore inapplicable terms, but we are forced by our hardwired concept of time to incorporate them.
Excellent points, you have a sharp mind, I'm probably out of my depth here, but I believe talking with people who are smarter than me only helps me get a bit smarter, as well. You mentioned "observation". You are of course aware that simply observing some things, changes the thing being observed, thus invalidating the observation? As you doubtless know, I'm referring to certain subatomic particles, but I wonder if that applies to more things than we realize.

YaA, Why do you keep cutting and pasting from Paul when he never even met the guy? You rail against the Catholics for playing politics with the Bible to get gentiles into the cult, but Paul was the prime shaker and mover of that agenda. Good grief.. how damned gullible can a guy get?

As far as I know, people are the only animals that know they are going to die. Maybe that creates a kind of insanity in the human mind. I observe the effects of entropy on my own body with a kind of detached bemusement. Sometimes I think the whole concept of "time" is a lie, and there is a deeper truth to it, that lies just beyond our grasp.

Likewise with many other brilliant minds and scientific breakthroughs.
Inspiration is not summoned on command. A paradox is merely something that we do not (yet) fully understand.

"Smarter" is a transient and relevant term in itself. A brilliant economist might not be able to balance his own household budget. It's obvious that the "experts" in politics are not "Smarter than a 5th Grader."

By observation, I'm not talking about detection and quantum physics, I am referring to the larger picture. We discovered that light will act as a particle when viewed in one way and a wave when viewed in another - this itself is an observation. Might it be that quantum physics plays a more pronounced role in the macro world (and visa versa) than is suspected? Perhaps, and perhaps in different ways than expected. Does this infer that the ancient Semites (or any other primitive civilization) had the inside track to a creator of all space-time? No. Not at all.

Doesn't the instinct for self preservation belay that statement? Does a cockroach not fear its mortality when you turn on the lights?

I suspect the insanity unique to the human mind stems from our development of language and is exacerbated through the resultant conceptualization and projection... You were referring to religion, of course?

Time is, just as space is. We cannot be "in" all instances of time any more than we can be in all places in space, yet all of space still exists as all of time exists. It is quite natural to go with the flow --->

Just like my mountain bike has two wheels,
I cannot call it a Harley!
If you'll notice in the OT,(Jewish Pentateuch) the Ten Commandments
are different!
Constantine's efforts to bring romans into Christianity, he "Modified"
them...
removing #2, and splitting #10 to make 10!
He also moved the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday!
In the OT, God warned of people (anti-Christ) changing the Laws, and times!
This is clearly seen in Catholicism!
Now, the LAST Pope is seated, and what is his message???
That even unrepentant sinners can go to Heaven without Jesus...
as long as they do good works!
NONE of this did Christ teach!
So.... can I call you a Muslim... you have two ears (I'm guessing)?
Your problem . Live your life not learning anything ...CATHOLICS. ARE CHRISTIANS . IGNORANT !!!
