Wow, I link to the Smithsonian, a world renown organization and you link to a bunch of kooks.
<quoted text>
I linked to evidence; you linked to apologetics. You are unable to even gauge what constitutes facts or evidence.
Oh,, so since your link was to the Smithsonian and their THEORIES, you WANT to present it as fact/proof?? LOL!!!!

Why don't you ask the Smithsonian what happened to the Giants they had on display at one time??

We're all still waiting on your fact/proof?? You do notice your fellow atheist aren't even jumping in to back you up on this one? LOL!!

PROOF please!! You said you could produce it,, and yet all you've produced is other peoples THEORIES, not even your own!! So we're all suppose to rely on your judgement of the people you get your THEORIES from as fact/proof?? I don't think so!!

I'm sorry but how can two quite contradictory scriptures both be true?
One scripture says God repents.
The other says God doesn't repent.
If you really want to discuss this, you need to stay in touch with reality.
Very much in touch with reality...thank you very much.

Please, re-read the post...your question was answered. The contradiction is a perceived.

Yes, we repent but it is for the same reason when you hurt someone you love and go to them to ask forgiveness, it has nothing to do with fear. Separation from God eternally is what he does not want for us and is why he has done everything ...we only need to accept the life he gives through Jesus Christ.
When people start smoking or drinking (for whatever reasons), initially it is not out of an addiction. The addiction comes after the negative habit has been embraced by the person over and over again but one time is still taking a chance. My point was that though people know smoking and drinking can lead to an early death, that fear did not stop them from smoking or drinking. It is the same with God. Though, I have heard some say originally it was fear for them but fear is not enough to keep someone from doing even what will hurt or kill them. The type of fear you seem to be referring to is not enough to keep someone where they do not want to be. A changed heart, can move one to change their thinking, so the desire to smoke and drink will go...and a relationship with God can bring about this internal transformation.
Some people do get into trouble and enter into the prisons as non-Christians, and become Christians. As well, we all do make mistakes, some Christians may be there for past or present criminal acts but a large percentage, I don't believe this is the case.
Very good post!

You're talking like a sectarian. Of course they were Christians when they entered prison. Yes, large number is factual.

Colour me confused but I just don't get your god's idea of love.
For you, perfect love involves creating a gigantic torture chamber and stocking it with demons. Then your idea of perfect love is that people are imprisoned in this torture chamber and held against their will and tortured for all eternity?
I think you need to reread the definition of love.
You stated what 'you' think God's idea of love it and it is not that way at all.

God is love.
With perfect love is also perfect justice.

There is no torture chamber or stocking up of demons.
Each makes a choice of their own will to accept or reject God's gift of life that comes through Jesus. Those that accept receive their choice to be with God and those they do not accept receive their choice of being separated from God...eternally. The lake of fire is for satan, the demons, death, etc. and was not made for mankind.

Why does Satan appear a few times in the OT as a member of God's heavenly court?
To have free will, you must have the ability to commit an evil act.
Otherwise, you're certainly not free and you definitely don't have free will.
Satan was going about to see who he could devour...who/what he could steal, kill or destroy.

True and we have free will. We are accountable for the words we say and our actions.

<quoted text>So a god said all this? Did a god say any of this? Of course not, as it is not even written as if a god said it. Can you even show a scripture that claims a god is speaking about heaven?
Seems to me, you simply believe whatever the bible says, is of what your god actually wants, as if none of it may be the imaginations of want man wants. That is just unrealistic, and I think very dangerous.
Yes, God said all of this.
The Bible is God's word...and there is so much more to this.

God also tells us to test all things to see whether they are from Him and this is what we do. It is also in the Bible that spiritual things will be foolishness to those who are not spiritually alive.

Have you personally performed all necessary scientific experiments, tested theories and hypothesis, etc. to know what you have placed your faith in is true? What if they are wrong?

<quoted text>Then show credible evidence the earth is not 4.54 billion years old? You say the bible contradicts that date yet again, but you have yet to show it does.
If a few scientists disagree with the date, they must supply the evidence to prove it. Being scientist does not grant you the authority to make a claim that should be considered credible, evidence does.
Please see previous post which answers this questions.

I responded previously that I have not found where the Bible gives an actual date of the earth;s age. To me, in the grand scheme of things, it is not life or death information. There are many scientists who date the earth as being younger than 4.54 billion, there is also the Jewish calendar which dates the earth younger than 4.54 billion years, etc. This television interview that I caught the end of, was speaking on this subject...it is interesting.

I agree with your last sentence.

Are you spreading more apostasy jam? Look, Jesus shows that Lake of fire was for fools and infidels, Pastorette.

Matt: 5:22
But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister,'Raca,' is answerable to the court. And anyone who says,'You fool!' will be in danger of the fire of hell.

C'mon.

Mike you need to get a life! My god. Atheists hate the idea of God cause they hate being wrong. They hate guilt and they hate the idea of punishment for those wrongs. If this werent true you wouldnt LIVE in this site, posting crap after crap "science blah blah evolution blah blah" one after another. Id be ashamed that my life sucked, that bad. And I'm a Satanist by the way. Not a pasy q*eer Hollywood Satanist. I worship a literal being. Get out of the basemet, get a girlfriend and a life and drop posting "blah blah blah God don't exist or the Devil blah blah science proof proof proof" and or croak. Or Die. Whatever. When the pit in the Euphrates is opened by Apollyon , and the horrible horseman are released, what a grand day that will be as millions nonbelievers are crushed. Yes.:[

Romans
10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thy heart that God hath raised him from
the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10:10 For with the heart man believeth to righteousness; and
with the mouth confession is made to salvation.
10:11 For the scripture saith, whoever believeth on him shall
not be ashamed.

Repent!

They have schools because the fund themselves? The constitution doesn't specify anything about parochial schools at all. If there was no first amendment there might be restrictive laws or there might be more permissive laws... that is legislative, not constitutional.
You don't seem to want to address the intent of the question. It isn't "How do/can churches build and operate schools?", it is >why< do they?
I ALREADY answered you that---remember--"because the Constitution allows for such"... except now your repost of your question of "intent" actually just makes me want to say--

"Churches" DON'T build and operate schools anyway--PEOPLE do.

So >why< would you even ask such a DUHM question?

<shrug> It's obvious from your preoccupation with creatard bloggers that you aren't going to pay any attention to anything science says on the matter. Instead, you are going to cling to the creationist rhetoric you are emotionally vested in and keep parroting words like "something from nothing", "random chance" and nonsensical idiocy like "invention of irrational animals" or "why are there still chimpanzees?". I have no incentive to hold a serious discourse with the delusional and there is no purpose in my spending time and effort linking articles on the matter with someone who will emotionally and absolutely dismiss them with extreme prejudice.
If you were at all interested in biological explanations you wouldn't be doting on myths in a raggedy old book. Your own pretense makes no sense - you have a fallacy in claiming that both sexes were created in the image of a single sexed entity that had no origin (sexually, biologically or otherwise) itself. The faithful aren't even logically consistent within their own stories.
and you DUHmmy types, have T-Totally (and/or conveniently?) left out the biggest equation in ANY and of ALL of it

E-mc2

WHY is THAT??????(because that's really kind of pathetic ya know)

Is it too DIFFICULT for yew to comprehend, or is it that it just does NOT align with your own actual inner little duhhuh phallic (no) PEA braincell (required) motive(s).

You have demonstrated no willingness to learn about the sciences in question. So it seems pretty clear you are just on a mission to mock science. Everything you say about science seems to be negative. You are clearly on a war with science, although you may deny that charge, I think you are in a war you do not know you are in. I think you are oblivious to many things.
Ummmm..hmmmm...let's see here...
