Just walk around in Wall Mart in Lenoir on any weekend and observe the strong evidence of early modern humans interbreeding with neanderthals. Exactly why natural selection has allowed these genetic traits to survive at such frequency in Lenoir and not in other locations around the world has not been clearly explained by science.

Hence the "People of Walmart" website TSF. It doesn't seem to be one specific location, it seems to be a "global" thing. I think there might be one in Lillington NC as well.

The reason one may point to the atrocities of religion is to show the philosophy is poor or maybe not of a god. If the philosophy is poor, it is evidence the god may not be so.
You may claim to not follow religion, but you speak of a religion in which you believe, Christianity. You need not be of a denomination or be active in a church to be religious or of a religion. And thus, you are not removed from the points of the atrocities committed in the name of religion.
What you say about god is all due to religion. You do not think in a vacuum. You do not live in a vacuum.
Do you think the bible is of a god? If so, then you follow religion.
I am simply not religious.Any more than you are a Parisian.

I appreciate that, Waco. My birth certificate says 'Neanderthal Combo Burger' on it and I knew there was a special scientifically proven reason for my vast thinking ability. LOL

<quoted text>You post scripture of the bible. Are you saying this must be true?
If so, then you are of religion.
Lets look closely at this scripture.
29 Then Jesus told him,“Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
The Purpose of John’s Gospel
30 Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. 31 But these are written that you may believe[a] that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.
So why is one blessed just because they believe without seeing? The bible does not say, do you have an answer?
I do not believe just because some claim is written. This scripture seems to think if something is written, it is evidence of a true claim. Do you believe claims just because they are "written"? If so, then you follow religion, and that would contradict what you agreed with Waco on.
I see it this way. Any leader would love for you to believe his words are perfect and of a god, just due to it being written. So the motive to say this is strong. But anyone who believes such a claim without evidence is just gullible.
If you fall for this, it makes me understand you falling for all sorts of propaganda that is devoid of evidence.
Mike, do you believe in "blind faith"?

Arnold, you left out the fact he lived to be only 60 years old and God said he was the wisest man (human) after Him. I figure if he could juggle all those women, not only write, but edit the scriptures he's given credit for; today's law would have been a breeze for him.:) The man accomplished a lot in 60 years which is a short lifespan even by today's standards, you think today's laws would have tripped him up?

When God asked Solomon at the beginning of his reign to name a gift, he asked for "wisdom and knowledge" to rule the Israelite people well(2 Ch 1:10). God granted this. Most of Solomon's proverbs were written during his early years as king, before he was led astray by "many foreign women" to include seven hundred wives, princesses, and 300 concubines from many kingdoms, which Solomon had treaties (1 Kg 11:1,3). The Bible clearly notes that Solomon had faults as well as elements of greatness. The bottom line is God kept His Word to Solomon by granting him his wisdom and knowledge.

Having 700 wives is not my idea of a wise man. Having 700 books...well, that's more like it.

Thought you might want to check this site, a pastor said I should check it because I asked him about Biblical writings "other" than the Bible. It's quite interesting how there is a correlation between the "written word" and "ancient hieroglyphics".
I read quite a bit of it, and could find no scriptures cited that actually lined up with anything they claimed. The few scriptures they posted, showed no correlation. Not sure what you see in this site, but I see a lot of babbling about nothing specific, and a lot of trying to make the bible sound as if it has some evidence.
The article starts out that it silenced the critics. Give me a break. Pure propaganda.
