Which would (doing the) math out to about 5.58 languages per sect...if anyone was only including Christian sects. Of course, reality tells us there are far more religious denominations that just one, so does that mean there is less than 1 language per religion?
How Many Languages in the World
Aug 31, 2011
You may be surprised, but it is a very difficult task for linguists1 to give the correct answer to the question,“How many languages are there in the world?” Before they can start counting, they have to solve some other problems. What can be defined as a separate language? Should dialects2 be added to the general number? Can you always understand the difference between a language and a dialect? How many people must speak the language? Is it obligatory for a language to be written? And this list of questions can be very long…
If you do not want to go into detail, just trust in professionals’ opinions, which state the following:
There are from 6800 to 6900 distinct languages in the modern world
As you see, even scientists are not able to give a more or less exact number. The Ethnologue organization speaks about approximately 6900 languages, and specialists from the National Virtual Translation Center agree with it. The Linguistic Society of America says that there are about 6800 spoken languages.
In fact, from time to time different languages disappear, because peoples speaking them die out or assimilate with other peoples. Thus, their languages become extinct. Have you ever heard about “dead languages”? Latin is the most striking example.
The Most Popular Language in the World
Do you know what language is the most widely spoken one? If you think it is English, you are badly mistaken. Look at the table below.
Language
Number of native speakers
Mandarin Chinese
about 880 million
Spanish
about 325 million
English
about 315-380 million
Arabic
about 205-425 million
Hindu
about 185 million
Portuguese
about 180 million
Bengali
about 175 million
Russian
about 145 million
Japanese
about 130 million..........
Hm...less than one language per religious "accounted" for denomination?
I fail to see what your post has to do with mine. Nothing new here.
<quoted text>I have no doubt the prophesies of the old could have easily claimed to have been fulfilled by someone, but again, it is but a claim.
I am sure many a devout Jewish scholar would be glad to show you where their writings did not mean what you interpret them to mean.
But with all these prophesies we see the typical vague predictions can be interpreted a thousand different ways. This is why their are over 38,000 different Christian sects.

<quoted text>Does the big bang theory claim some absolute truth? Nope, not a bit. But the bible and Duwhat sure make this claim about their ideas with absolutely zero evidence.
No one is living their lives hinged upon the big bang theory. So no matter if it were completely wrong, what would it matter?
The big bang theory makes no demands you must blindly follow.
Moi thinks you confuzzle this "evidence" with "faith" sometimes.

If the BBT were completely wrong? It's not even complete, TO be "wrong".

As far as the BBT making "demands"...neither does anything else written in any other book-theories, suggestions, tangible evidences in some cases, and personal choices.

Geesh.

Do you know what the word "some" means?
Just what am I to call the persons in question? Maybe I need to be more specific so your PC police ways are not offended? The persons called Curious, and the person called yes and amen, who goes by several insulting names on occasion are topping the list of "some Christians" on this thread.
And did you really claim to not insult me? You must have some serious denial issues. But then again, many of your insults are broad stroke insults to whole groups of people. How ironic,contradictory and hypocritical as per usual with you.
You really just can't see it, can you?
Sure-it's EASY to see "it"--

I don't think Science will ever be removed from classrooms anywhere, and I try to see beyond here, because this a pretty limited format a lot of times, in my opinion. Actually some of the better scientific, more scholarly, and open minded websites I have seen at times-have been sponsored by none other than "Christian affiliated" groups.
I cannot perpetuate myself to propagate "hate and insults" towards all folks based upon a mere label brandished as "Christians" in bigotry, any more than I could do so towards those of a mere label brandished "atheists".
To do something like that, just doesn't seem logical, or rational.
This is 2013, not 213 BC.
Well 'science' is pretty broad and thus I also doubt it will be removed from the public classroom, but that was not the question or concern was it? Teaching of evolution was the concern, not science as a whole. Nice diversion though.
And no, it is not just Christian extremists who wish for evolution teaching to be removed, Muslim extremists are on board for this agenda also.
Again, I am not targeting all Christians, just the ones who wish to put their extremist agenda in my face. IE, the claimed Christians who post on this thread.

Do you know what a demand is? Well here are two, and I could go on.
Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

These are not requests, these are demands. Moses had three thousand men women and children slaughtered on the day he presented these DEMANDS. He evidently felt he must enforce gods demands.

Yea well, there's special schools AND courses--even in more mainstream, usual curriculum, and beyond even-- for all that type of stuff, should those who desire such wish to pursue such further.
But I'm still not going to go around discrediting others just because I might not agree with them on everything.

Have a good evening!

SO, are you saying you think this stuff with Moses might hold some "truths" to at least be LEARNED from?

Whatuh?

Makes anyone think about stuff huh.

Kind of like line one of the BB theory.

Ever notice though-how SIMILAR they BOTH are in the concept of-

"In the beginning there WAS light".....

Fill in the blanks, best we can, as we "go" on the rest-is the best we get sometimes.

I find the best people to try to improve upon, are always our selves, and I can certainly agree with you in that yes, NO one is "perfect". Actually, I believe there's NO such thing as "perfection", especially perpetually.
Perfection is an impossibility. Utopia cannot exist. It is a paradox. Ironic how so many Christians think heaven is a Utopia though.

In answer to the first question, no, and I would ask why you do it so often then?

I see some truths in the Moses story. I see how a tyrant uses the ruse of god do gain power. But when it is taught as some story of Moses being a hero, it makes me think of the Hitler youth. Murdering non believers is never the good moral story. Never. Anyone who thinks it is or was ever moral to murder due to lack of belief needs to be enlightened.

So if a story has a place cited in it that is of a real place, then it means what? It means it has a real place cited in it, that is all. It does not mean a single story about the city is true.

If believers could actually think for a moment some of the stories might be exaggerated, I would be relieved. But more than not, they believe the tale is perfect due to some ghost they call holy.

I have little doubt their is a thread of truth to some of the stories. Most myths have a bit of truth to them.

I will if what I disagree with them on is a Bat Shite Crazy delusional nonsensical mythology without the slightest bit of evidence to back it up... If I didn't discredit such foolishness I would be enabling it... Sorta like a guy that goes through life telling little kids that if the click their heels together they can fly off roof tops...

Identification


Truth is authenticity. God wants people to be truthful about how they are feeling and what they are thinking. In return, God is truthful about who He is and what people need to do in order to lead a better life. God wants people to speak the truth from their hearts (Psalm 15:2). God wants you to be truthful from the inner parts of your heart (Psalm 51:6). Walking in truth is the key to repairing a divided heart (Psalm 86:11).


Significance


The Bible says that truth is very important to God. God wants you to love truth and peace (Zechariah 8:19). Truth goes hand in hand with "wisdom, discipline and understanding" (Proverbs 23:23). God commands people to "Speak the truth to each other, and render true and sound judgment in your courts" (Zechariah 8:16). The Bible says that the way to choose truth is to set your heart on God's laws (Psalm 119:30). We must follow God's laws to find truth.

Considerations


Telling the truth is not always easy. In fact, telling the truth often means telling people something that they do not want to hear. However, truth is what sets people free (John 8:31), so you need to tell people the truth, whether they want to hear it or not. You should always tell the truth in a loving way (Ephesians 4:15). Jesus provided an example, saying the phrase, "I tell you the truth" around 25 times in the Bible as he shared many truths that people did not want to hear.


Benefits


The Bible says that truth offers people many benefits. Truth can protect you (Psalm 40:11). Truth can guide and lead you to God (Psalm 43:3). Truth can guide and teach you, bringing you to hope in God (Psalm 25:5). Truth has the power to set you free from the bondage of sin (John 8:31). The Bible even says that God is near to those who call on Him in truth (Psalm 145:18).


Warning


Failing to tell the truth can lead people astray. The Bible says that some people were lead astray from God as a result of others distorting the truth (Acts 20:30). Man's wickedness can suppress the truth and result in incurring the wrath of God (Romans 1:18-19). The Bible says in Romans 2:8 that "... for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger."
