Good luck - the councils destroyed most of them.
Good thing the Sumerians stored the original texts in storage vaults several 1000 years earlier.....

You want a real insight into our early years... Find a globe... Stick a pin at the Giza plateau, Pumapunku Peru, Easter Island, Angkor Watts Cambodia, Paracus Peru, Dugon Africa, Tassili N'Ajjar Algeria, Persepolis Iran, Mohendrudaro Pakistan, Kachuraho India, Pyay Burma....

Now take a string and connect the pins... Then find the North and south rotational centers of the globe using the string as the Equator of the globe... and stick a pin in those points... Take more string and connect those south and north rotational points to the Site pins....

Make your own conclusions....

Oh and also make note of our existing Magnetic North and South poles as they are today... Stick a pin in those points also...

But if you want real insight into the origins of Christianity, watch Jane Goodall.

You do not understand the point.

Look, our ancestors walked on four legs. They had a sinus cavity that drained down with gravity doing the work. Evolution hit on a good idea.

But as we evolved and started walking upright that sinus cavity didn't adjust, it just remained oriented pretty much the same way relative to the skull.

This makes no sense if we were intelligently designed. It makes perfect sense if we were evolved.

Define species.

And define the mechanism that prevents organisms from becoming different ones.

The Bible is true because the Bible says the Bible is true.

well the worlds going to hell so do you really think it would be that bad of an idea..... this is KY..... if we lived in a more diverse place I could see your point..... Just like saying the pledge they should have the choice to say no but at least offer it to those who want it. I seriously doubt there are more opposed to this than those to encourage it. Oh and while there at it.... bring prayer back and the all mighty paddle. Kick these kids asses and teach them the right things and maybe society as a whole would benefit.
I am a student and I do not and refuse to have bible study in my school. This may be KY but a lot of people don't believe prayer and study should be added. Even religions including the bible do not agree, this area is more diverse in religions than you think. Since the Internet teens already have studied new religions and found there's. Christianity is not the only religion with nice good people.

Species is too vague. Kind or family group would be more accurate.

A geologist can date rock strata and determine the processes that formed it. A paleontologist can date a fossil and describe the environment in which it lived. A Christian can point at his book and say "Jesus loves me".

Yea.. Grab the Torches Boys... We gona go burn out Bill Gates, George Soros, George Glooney, The Kennedy's, The Kerry's, and all the Too Rich in Hollywood and rid ourselves of the Left Wing elitists that are driving the prices of every thing from Fuel to used cars to canned corn up on the backs of the poor people.....

They don't care if Gas is 10 bucks a gallon so of course they want to shut down the oil wells so they can see vast expanses of natural beauty in their 3 Million Dollar summer cabin without the pesky Po Folk driving through Their Nature... They found it humorous that so many poor folks would agree to turning over there food crops for them to have better views...

Let's Go, Grab the torches.... I'll bring the pitch forks.....

I am sure that he was talking about politicians, but yes, lets burn alive the people who poisoned water supplies for profit and take advantage of peoples needs so they have to work for a wage that no one can live off of.

I expected that would get a rise out of you. If you think execs making tens of millions a year deserve bonuses and raises after firing a few thousand more employees, or pumping millions into campaigns instead of worker wages, or moving operations to third world sweat shops, or making bogus loans for quick profits, or cooking books and pleading innocent is just good clean capitalism, we don't have anything to discuss.

I hope that is humor.

I doubt that you went to college at all. Unless, perhaps, you majored in pottery or art.
