But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.” Douglas Adams
And the same can be said for my Cat... I feed him when he wants it, I have to deal with the stress and workloads to maintain a technological survival level and he plays in the woods, chases pussy and then comes home to sit and lick his balls .... Who thinks humans have a superior life...

That's not Superiority, That's Dominance... big difference...

Superiority would be when placed on equal terms you could maintain that dominance.... The Only thing that maintains human dominance is his Superior Technology, not his superior being....

But turn that around and not that your human body would die in a few moments if other lowly animals did not keep you alive... There are More animals in you that You in you,,, and several billion plants in you that without them You would fall over with little X's in your eyes...

Yeah... I think the bible should stay out of my kid's class room. Otherwise we mormons start getting questions from them.

Shai maeri,Roger Patterson,and there are many,many more,
What you call factless theory,is based on your opinion,based on the fact that you don't believe in God.
My faith is not based on factless theory, as I have posted previously,it is your opinion that is based on factless theory.
Since YOU have not tested GOD"S word,because to you,it's nonsense,then your opinion is null and void,...factless
Those of us who have tested God according to his Statement
" IF you DILIGENTLY seek me,you will find me" have found his word to be accurate and true.So we base our faith and belief on those facts,not on someones opinion on a subject that they are unable to understand.
How do you test God? That seems incredibly arrogant of you since he is supposed to be your Master and you his Slave. Which, to be honest, sounds kind of kinky to me.

Energy... E=Mc2... Where did the Energy Come From should be your next question... It Always Existed .. Time Started the instant some matter converted out of Energy... I call it Unified Indefinable Energy Form... Time is a Human Concept and only exists relative to the matter in relative motion to other matter... Time in out universe goes only in one direction, Forward.. We can go forward in time but we can never go back... We can though "See" back in time we can just never Go back in time... But we can Go forward in time we can just never "See" forward in time.... One of my long time debates with other in the field is that I think that the speed of light in variable and is set Universally by the total separation distance of all matter in the universe and altered locally by the separation distance of matter in local dense areas... so the Rate that Time moves forward varies by the density of the local matter... The More Dense the slower the value of c and the slower time moves forward... We being so small on a astronomical scale can never detect such variance even locally in our solar system... So we perceive c and time as Constant
Interesting!

So if your god visible and just where is he? If not in the sky, why do Christians point up when refering to him? If you wish us not to say he lives up there, maybe stop pointing up there.
If you wish us to stop saying he is invisible, show us what his physical presence looks like?

(huh...does that require religion or evolution...seeing a critter actually Read a book....huh...)
My requirement for superior reading is a book that really grabs my attention, is interesting, with little tidbits of factualities that I can learn something from.
Jesus had a bunch of other guys scribing about him.
Duh.
Their is not a word written in the days Jesus was claimed to be on earth that exists today. People wrote about the supposed Jesus after the fact.
I say again, if reading and writing made a being superior, then why did Jesus not leave us his writings?
Why am I to believe someones claims of what the supposed Jesus said? If it was so damn important, I think a god could write it himself so no one could screw it up. As it is now, we have many various interpretations of what Jesus wanted due to lack of confirmed and consistent written words by what you claim were his scribes.

If Christians would quit posting,these devil worshipers would have no one to argue with. You are causing more harm than good by posting.The Bible says cast not thy pearls before swine:And if they will not accept the word ,shake off the dust of thy feet and leave :The Principle: Casting Pearls Before Swine
"Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces." (Matthew 7:6).
And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, leave that place and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them."
Of course, these words of Jesus are allegorical. I doubt that any were literally casting pearls before swine. The meaning is pretty simple to figure out; "Do not persist in offering what is sacred or of value to those who have no appreciation for it, because your gift will not only become contaminated and be despised, your generous efforts could also be rebuffed and perhaps even openly attacked."
The "dogs" and "swine" here stand for the unappreciative and worldly; unappreciative and uncaring men and women who belittle the value of what is offered to them. The swine have no appreciation for either the beauty nor the value of the pearls under their feet.
Your life, time, energy, opportunities and abilities are God's pearls. They're His! You and I are merely His stewards overseeing His possessions (1 Corinthians 6:19,20; 4:1,2; 1 Peter 4:8-11). We must show discernment as to what use we make of God's possessions. It is possible to waste them either by using them when we should not.
Examples of the Principle Applied
"Jesus therefore perceiving that they were intending to come and take Him by force, to make Him king, withdrew again to the mountain to be by Himself alone." (John 6:15).
Jesus was very popular at this stage of His ministry. The main reason for this is that He had just miraculously fed five thousand plus people. The purpose was twofold; the people were hungry, and Jesus wanted to illustrate the more important spiritual bread, the bread of life, that He was offering them in His teachings.
But the people did not want the bread of life. They wanted more of the physical bread to eat. They began following Him for the wrong reason (vs. 26-27). Jesus offered them spiritual bread, but they did not want that (vs. 40-41). When Jesus refuses to duplicate the earlier miracle, continuing instead to redirect their attention toward the words of life, the people finally lose interest and leave (vs. 66). They were unappreciative of the pearls Jesus was offering them. Jesus simply refused to allow His efforts to be wasted on those who had little interest in His purpose and mission.
On another occasion, those who continued to ignore the implications of His earlier miracles, demanded He provide yet more. They were testing Him and were not really interested in what these signs signified about Jesus' identity. Jesus simply refused their request (Matthew 16:1-4). He was not here to perform for them or to satisfy their curiosity (Luke 23:8,9).
Jesus made it quite clear that His disciples were to move on when a city indicated its lack of interest in the gospel offered it by preachers and teachers (Matthew 10:11-14). Paul continued this practice (Acts 13:44-52; 18:5-7).And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, leave that place and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them."
Do you really feel that some one is a "devil worshiper" if they worship a god that demanded they kill animals for ritual animal sacrifice,(pouring the blood on themselves) that demanded that they be HAPPY as they kill children, that demanded they attack and kill every man,rape every woman? I find this to be devil worship, worshiping a god that demands this, do you?

What if the writings began immediately but didn't come forth until later? Life was different then. There were no publishers, and no printing presses. You don't know

Sorry but our ability to think and reason makes us superior. Situational instances don't change that.

The Jewish people, wanting to be the master race above other people, wanted a "savior" to lead them to victory over the Roman empire who ruled them. It had nothing to do with a god, they wanted a super warrior.
Seeing how well the religious leaders controlled the Jewish people and how wealthy the religious leaders where the "new testament" was created to control the masses and gain great wealth.
Funny how in America where people make slurs about middle east people they think Jesus was a white or black man but not an Arab

Three reasons I think little was written until after His death.
1. There was little time. They traveled with Him and He taught constantly. They spent a lot of time figuring things out when He said it. His teachings were above most men.
2. His countenance was not that anyone should desire Him. He seemed a plain and simple man. He did not seem like the Son of God to most (at least what they assumed that would look like). They thought He was going to be a king and relieve them of Roman rule. They misunderstood His purpose was to save them in the next life, not this one.
3. They were afraid for their lives. They just watched their master killed and they knew He had the power to prevent it.
