I stopped believing in any Gods about the same time as I stopped believing in Santa Claus
But as so many Christians around me kept saying things that were so against even their own beliefs, I decided to read the bible. Which I did, cover to cover and in context, in later years I read it again as a refresher.
I do probably know more of it than your standard Christian who only reads select passages and it "told" what it is supposed to mean rather than what is actually says.
But no I don’t struggle with any religion, never have really.
I realized they were nothing more than behavior control for the “little people” the same as Santa, and the bogey man.
A child’s reason to do right, and adult does not need that.
So you rebelled did you eh?

You are wrong. The impeachment did not fail. Clinton was impeached.

You have dishonestly changed your original assertion that "Clinton's impeachment failed" to "The intent of the impeachment failed".

Why did you do that?

You didn't know what impeachment means. Now you do. Admit it, be a man.

3 Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.
4 God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness.
5 God called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.
Ho, Ho, Ho.
<quoted text>
I'm simply pointing out that the Bible says there was day and night BEFORE plant life occurred.
Just one more absurdity, day and night before there was a sun.
Along with plants growing before there was a sun.
Without a sun, idiot, the temp would be close to 0 Kelvin. Plants wouldn't last a second, even if there were light.

This is what happens when a Ho tries to understand things that require reasoning.
Here are a couple of the theological thoughts about a concise passage (less than three pages) about creation.
-Written in a simple language that could be understood before modern science (99%) of the time period.
Well, god would know what went on, and could explain it. You're too dumb to understand something like "a cloud of interstellar dust...", but most people could get it. People knew about clouds, stars and dust back then.
KiMare wrote:
-One theological 'theory' of this passage is that the length of a day refers to the time frame of God, not humans.
Doesn't matter. The story has plants growing before there is a sun, that's absurd.
KiMare wrote:
-Richard Dawkins, to name one of a few, said life may have been 'seeded' by aliens. Life 'injected' onto earth from another place.
And?
KiMare wrote:
-Even more striking, the passage refers to life beginning from the ground (scientists; a pool of amino acids), and that humans began as simple genderless life forms. Considering any other creation account from that time period (and a LONG time afterward), this account stands distinctly apart.
Go back to the kitchen, you are in no shape for the bedroom, focus on woman's work, and leave the thinking to real men.
Ho, Ho, Ho.
You're not a real man, you have a woman's genes.
LOL!

Not only should it be obvious, after all, stories aren't normally told with the events being related in random order, the Buy-bull explicitly states:
"And the evening and the morning were the third day." (Genesis 1:13) after the plants were created and growing.

"And there was evening, and there was morning--the fourth day." (Genesis 1:19) after the sun was created.

Your original assertion was: "Clinton's impeachment failed".

You were wrong. It did not fail.

You have changed that assertion to: "The impeachment ended in total failure at achieve any of its stated goals." Which is a totally different statement.

Why did you do that?

My older grandkids are funny. They don't believe in Santa till around a week before Christmas! The little ones are precious, they BELIEVE! And I wouldn't ruin that for anything.

P.S. You were wrong. Clinton's impeachment did not fail. Impeachment is the sole power of the House. The Senate cannot fail it, only try it and either convict or acquit. They did. And they acquitted. This in no way fails the impeachment. Clinton was impeached.

That's a completely different assertion from your original one. Why have you changed it? And why a do you call me a liar?

Pleased actually, at the depth of my understanding at such a young age. At least that is what they tell me, I was pretty young.

These stories are like Grimm fairy tales, they are stories to try and influence behavior, that is why for most of its history actual reading of the bible was a capital offence, people were killed for doing so, you only heard how they wanted it interpreted.

Today it is a bit different, after being re-written and the contradictory parts removed, it is an army of people telling you what it is supposed to mean, rather than the simple fact that it is written in plain English ( well the current re-write and translation anyway )

It always amazes me how people will paraphrase one part, and totally ignore another part, I laugh when they try to preach to me, and I show them how what they are saying is not even close to what it says, particularly in the context of what was being said.
