Since Adam and Eve were not born from parents, but were created perfect people by Almighty God Jehovah, they most likely did not have navels.

Even tho Eve was a creation from Adams rib, she did not become one flesh with Adam until they had sex in marriage.

(Matthew 19:4-7). . .“Did YOU not read that he who created them from [the] beginning made them male and female 5 and said,‘For this reason a man will leave his father and his mother and will stick to his wife, and the two will be one flesh’

6 So that they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has yoked together let no man put apart.”

Jesus taught his followers to love and worship or obey Almighty God Jehovah, as he did his whole life. John 14:30,31
If you make Jesus the same as Almighty God Jehovah, you are disobeying the direction of Jesus Christ at John 4:24.
Do you consider Mitt Romney to be a Christian when he believes in, and financially supports a church of fraudulent prophets and their prophecies.

I'm suspecting there was and am pretty sure had they have eaten from the Orange tree we wouldn't be in this mess.

All in all atheism is an old idea, a philosophy now claiming to be scientific :-)

Those that believe in eternal hell for trivia also expect people to be polite. F**k 'em!

FDR D-Day Prayer To Be Added To D.C. World War II Memorial

In a virtually unprecedented move, the U.S. National Park Service will soon be forced to add a prayer plaque to the National WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C., thanks to recent congressional action.

On June 30, President Barack Obama signed the “World War II Memorial Prayer Act,” which will add an invocation given by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on June 6, 1944, to the memorial.

The D-Day invocation reads, in part,“And, O Lord, give us Faith. Give us Faith in Thee; Faith in our sons; Faith in each other; Faith in our united crusade. Let not the keenness of our spirit ever be dulled. Let not the impacts of temporary events, of temporal matters of but fleeting moment let not these deter us in our unconquerable purpose.”

U.S. Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio), who sponsored the prayer bill along with U.S. Rep. Bill Johnson (R-Ohio), didn’t see it that way.

“[M]y bill will immortalize this extraordinary prayer on the World War II Memorial so it becomes a permanent reminder of the sacrifice of not just those who fought in World War II, but also of the men and women who fight for us today and all those who lay down their lives for the cause of liberty,” Portman said in a statement.

At least one member of Congress didn’t agree with Portman’s assessment. During a House debate June 23, Rep. Niki Tsongas (D-Mass.), whose father served in World War II, noted that forcing religion into a secular monument takes away from the stated purpose of the memorial, which is to promote unity.

Bollocks! The video just asked theists questions that atheists and non believers have been asking them for years, and as usual the theists came up way short!
