Well lady, if it helps I will tell you, that I don't "know" if the flood took place. I don't "know" if any Bible thing happened, since I wasn't there.
I believe by faith that it did.
There were many accounts of a Flood, but again who knows??
I didn't know nor care about anything of God.
I now do,and "believe" He saved me, just like the Bible says.
Better?
I believe if someone truly wants to know about God, they can seek Him, and other then that all I can do is tell my beliefs.
Faith is indeed the operative word.

No that you actually write what 'the text says' in the context that it is said. Most of the time when non believers quote the Bible it is either inaccurate, out of context or not considerate of the times and culture.
Most of the time? No, I disagree. They may have a different perspective from your most learned and scholarly POV but it is no less accurate than the interpretations of believers.

No those are the progressive feminists leading the call for independence from men and families. They have a mission. It is very important to them.
No less important than what is important to you. My mother has a cousin who many years ago was in a short, very abusive, marriage. She had her marriage annulled before I was even born. After that she chose to never marry again and had no kids yet she has lived a very happy, full and productive life. Being a wife and mother is a choice like anything else and nobody is required to follow that path.

The Bible had a point at the time in Hebrew history. There would be no Jews today if it wasn't for the strict marriage roles. They served a purpose. If you aren't Jewish then they don't pertain to you. So why worry?
So the bible has no point now?

Fabulous!! Best to file it away in the ancient history mythological/misogynistic section and leave it in the past where it belongs. I am all for it! Matter of fact that is where we taught are daughter it belonged, she agreed!

Problem is the damn pesky mythological believers wish to club you over the head with it.

What purpoe does eating turkey on Thanksgiving serve? It is tradition and men taking their hats off in church and women covering their heads is tradition and culture.
Aside from that he says that women and men are not independent from each other. He says that man comes from God and woman from man and yet man comes from woman by birth. Read more than just the parts that irritate you.
I know what the book says and you can try to sweeten it all you like. But the bottom line is...as you said
"He says that man comes from God and woman from man", nothing degrading about that right Ink? Think about it Ink, she is lower on the totem pole. A child could figure that out.

So,let me get this straight....motherhood is a role issued by male hierarchy religion? Taking care of your child was issued by this male hierarchy religion?
huh?
Assy, if you are not a slave to your husband if he is not your master then you are not living by scripture:

Ephesians 5:22-24

Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands.

1 Timothy 2:11-12

Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet.

Titus 2:9

Slaves are to be submissive to their own masters in everything; they are to be well-pleasing, not argumentative,

1 Peter 3:1-7

Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives, when they see your respectful and pure conduct. Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious. For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves, by submitting to their own husbands,...

Genesis 3:16

To the woman he said,“I will surely multiply your pain in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children. Your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.”

1 Peter 3:7

Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.

Titus 2:5

To be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.

1 Corinthians 14:34-35

The women should keep silent in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be in submission, as the Law also says. If there is anything they desire to learn, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church.

1 Corinthians 11:3

But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a wife is her husband, and the head of Christ is God.

1 Timothy 2:13-14

For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.

Colossians 3:18

Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.

1 Corinthians 14:34

The women should keep silent in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be in submission, as the Law also says.

1 Timothy 2:12

I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet.

Ephesians 5:22-33

Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands. Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,...

1 Corinthians 11:3-16

But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a wife is her husband, and the head of Christ is God. Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head, but every wife who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head, since it is the same as if her head were shaven. For if a wife will not cover her head, then she should cut her hair short. But since it is disgraceful for a wife to cut off her hair or shave her head, let her cover her head. For a man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God, but woman is the glory of man....

I think in some cases more important. It's like they have something to prove and are quite driven.

Who bothers you with the Bible? Most people have never read it or just googled the out of context parts that fit their agenda.

Well if you believe that the first person on earth was a man, then it is accurate not demeaning. The verse speaks in a circle woman comes from man and man comes from woman. That makes them equal to me.

<quoted text>A humans life is deliberately killed via abortion. You don't have a right to kill your own child because they are unwanted.
Actually, yes I do.

In the first trimester, I do...because it's not a child. In the second and third trimesters I do...if I don't want to die trying to gestate it, or it will die anyway, in grave pain, or it is severely/profoundly compromised, and I don't have the resources to raise it. You know: INDIVDUAL CIRCUMSTANCES.

You and your brood want to make it illegal regardless. Even if the woman is likely to die gestating. As happens to 650 women every year in this, the most medically advanced country in the world.

We both know you'd be fine with higher numbers...because martyrdom, in your little world, is FREAKIN AWESOME.

And yet,....MOST proaborts are in favor of the gov't restricting abortion. SUDDENLY,the so called "pro-choicers" are anti-womans choices regarding her "BEST CHOICES FOR OUR INDIVIDUAL CIRCUMSTANCES".
Yoo hoo? what's wrong with this picture?
It REEKS with contradiction and hypocrisy.
As you know, if it was up to me, there wouldn't be any restrictions at all. But it isn't up to me.

And thank goodness it isn't up to you either, you fundie fuck.

I didn't say their point of view or interpertation was less accurate, did I? I said that what they choose to post, in their own words is not what the Bible actually says or that they post one line without context or they take 3000 year old Jewish rules and apply them to today. I just don't think it makes sense. There are beautiful words that that transpire and inspire even today but that is never what they choose to focus on.

No worse than the fundies who tirelessly try to cram their dogma down our throats. I never had a feminist knocking on my door to proselytize but I get fundies all the time.

What are religious nuts people like the Nebraska Nag trying to prove on here?

And you fundies aren't trying to take 2000 year old rules and apply them to today? Or take the bible scriptures out of context to support your own POV?

Your double standards are showing.

"I didn't say their point of view or interpertation was less accurate, did I?"

Then you've rendered your own point as moot.
