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"?

I see you have no rebuttal.
The words of a wise man's mouth are gracious,
But the lips of a fool shall swallow him up;
The words of his mouth begin with foolishness,
And the end of his talk is raving madness.
A fool also multitudes his words.
No one knows what is to be;
Who can tell the fool what will be after him?

King Solomon, the accepted writer of Provebs, had 700 wives and 300 concibines.....When did he find time to do any writing? I wonder how the current laws would treat him today?

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.

http://amazingdiscoveries.org/S-deception_arc...
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.

So the bible calls atheist fools? No shit? Guess that proves it is true. I cannot refute it, because the bible claims it.

Let me test this scripture. Do you think all atheists have never once done good? If not, then the scripture is proven false. Thus, the bible is suspect.
BTW, Bill Gates is atheist, and he gave about twenty billion to charity.
So does this verse fit Gates? There is none who does good. Psalm 14:1

Now lets look at the other scripture you posted.
The way of a fool is right in his own eyes,
But he who heeds counsel is wise. Proverbs 12:15

So do you think you are right about god? If so, then you are claiming to be 'right in your own eyes'.

Oh, and just who do you think never seeks counsel?

Do you even think for a second about how stupid these verses are? Do you ever scrutinize the logic?

Kings being granted wisdom by god? I can see Karl Rove's wheels spinning now. It's just politics man, why can't you see that?

Mike that's because your mind is closed to all facts that don't fit in with your worldview.Your mind is so inflexible it lowers your IQ by thirty points.
