My dearest Dawg, I would never tell you what to do with your time. You can waste you time any way you want. Since I am not an atheist I know exactly what you believe. I know you better enjoy your life now because it is the only heaven you will ever know. As I have said before (and I know it goes in one ear and out the other), the Bible was written by man INSPIRED by God. Think about it.........who would ever agree on what is true and what is not true if people were given that choice. It has to be true OR not true! I choose to believe it is true.....every word of it!<quoted text>
Yes, I CAN "have it both ways." The Bible CAN contain some truth, along with SOME error -- like all books written by man.
Just because a part of the Bible is true, that does not prove that ALL of it is true. And, just because parts of the Bible are false, that does not prove that ALL parts are false.
What does my being mortal and dying have to do with my being on Topix? I am on here because I choose to do so. How DARE you tell me what I must do with my time! I am sure that you have enough trouble living your own life, without poking your nose in the lives of others.
(I must confess to enjoying "spinning you up" though, "Norton." That is one of my pleasures in life. Just consider that one of my forms of "living it up." Since you are not an atheist, you cannot have any idea what we believe, or enjoy doing. You are only able to sit there, imagining all the pleasures of our lives, and being envious.)
