Of course I do. I have family members who are nuttier than fruit cake christians. They have a glazed over look in their eyes because their brain no longer functions outside of bible verses.
I call any and all who use their bible to interfere in others lives fundies.
Got a problem with that?
Yes I do. You are judging 'all' Christians by your family members.

I wouldn't judge all women by the things you say. Not everyone is the same.

It seems that there could have been a flood worse than any since. Are you anti science?

"An ancient Babylonian flood myth, the Epic of Gilgamesh, tells us a story analogous to that of Noah and his ark. In it, a man named Utnapishtim builds a ship to save his family and animals from floods brought on his city by a wrathful god. After seven days, Utnapishtim and his family come to rest safely on a mountaintop.

Greek and Roman mythology tell the tale of angry gods who planned to flood the Earth and destroy humanity; the story's hero Deucalion and his wife take shelter in an ark and are spared. American Indian legends also tell of people taking shelter in a boat to be saved from a flood."
From your link, page one.

With all of that, why do you choose to believe it was only Noah's flood? Or only applied to Noah? Or that the others mentioned are not as real as Noah?

Thanks, though, for showing scientists are looking at ancient tsunamis and evidence left behind. Still, none of it confirms Noah's Flood happened.

I am probably going to get plenty of heat here but, here it is.
It is easy for people who don't believe in God as their heavenly Father and as Creator to think about an unborn child as a pregnancy. Eliminating one child in the world is no big deal. After all life is a bitch and then you die.
For people of faith, it is a child created in the image and likeness of God who He cares about. We are all His children and we wouldn't hurt another child. Having an abortion or advocating that others do or learning to accept it as part of culture is wrong.
We believe that all people are loved by God even when their parents don't, especially then.
You have your rights and you should be satisfied but don't minimize and ridicule the strong feelings on the other side.
They are genuine and not just trying to make your life harder. People do that for themselves.
This does not answer why you or anyone would care about a stranger's pregnancy in another state or country. You can love anyone and everyone you want to, even from afar. You can claim it's because you love God. But once you start physically getting in someone else's space uninvited, effecting new laws that restrict others' civil rights, you've crossed the line of decency by displaying unacceptable, unwanted behavior.

So what's in it for you? Self-righteous ego stroking?

If you don't want an abortion don't get one. LET WOMEN BE FREE TO CHOOSE FOR THERE OWN BODY AND LIFE.

You would have to prove another of that magnitude and I bet you can't find any evidence because God said He would never do it again.
How can you measure the "magnitude" of the Noah flood when you've already admitted the people of the time had no idea how large the Earth was? The flood could've covered a mere 10 mile radius but those people would've only perceived it as a massive flood because they didn't know any better. Those ancient people may have thought that a flood was covering their whole world while in reality most of the Earth remained unaffected. So what proof do you have of the "magnitude" of that one particular flood? And again, where is your proof is was the work of a god?

Yeah, the recorded story is in the Bible.
The Bible is not the original document for any of it's content, and I think you know that, so where is the original written account that was transcribed into the OT? Where is the original document?

You know the Plains Indians of the American West thought and believed the stars were actually the camp fires of their deceased ancestors. They had no idea those were stars, or even what a star was, so they came up with their own idea about what they saw every night in the sky. We now know it wasn't even close to the factual truth, but that is what they believed. That's how ancient minds worked out and explained their surroundings because they had no facts at the time.

Not of Biblical proportions. They has never been a flood to equal Noah's flood. Using 'Noah's' only as a description.
Ah, so you have some statistics to prove this claim perhaps...? How do you know what that flood really was like that you can make such a conclusive statement as "They[sic] has never been a flood to equal Noah's flood"?

Neither of which fit the noah story. I never said there weren't catastrophic floods; there were none that works with the myth.

Especially crucial to the story is that it rained for forty days--something none of the theories are compatible with.

No. The first recorded same sex marriage actually occurred in the Catholic Church in Spain.

Hey Peter

Just popping in ..And want to explain

My belief is indeed in the bible account . I know you don't believe it

It says,clearly not only did it rain forty days,...But fountains beneath the,surface erupted ..if you can imagine this ..it accounts for all this "layers,of things being found""

Thing is,..You either believe this was,a,supernatural event for supernatural reasons ..the,NEPHIL POLLUTING THE HUMANS BEING ONE..

or you don't..

the flood,stories were passed down if course ... but the facts,were inspired to be written ....by God

Even in Moses time ..who knew there were fountains,of water deep WITHIN the earth ..in the one before the flood things,were different
As far as land masses,because of this ....

See you all later ..wanted to MSKE it clear,on what we who believe the BIBLE BELIEVE.

Peace and,God bless

I have said in the past and I say again I don't take the Bible word for word. Recollections are just that, recollections.These are oral histories finally written down before calendars or clocks.
I will say that eventually the Bible will prove to contain a lot of truth about 'real' history.
What "real" history are you seeking to validate?

"For people of faith, it is a child created in the image and likeness of God who He cares about."-Ink

If he 'cares' so much, why is abortion even a thing? Why does he do it himself, affecting one of every three pregnancies conceived??

"People of faith" have no business involving themselves in the decisions of others, simply because of their OWN faith. You're welcome to believe abortion is 'wrong', and to act accordingly ON YOUR OWN BEHALF. No one is stopping you from making the decision to gestate a pregnancy. But beating pregnant women who DON'T want to continue a pregnancy over the head, with YOUR faith, is wrong. And the evidence that your 'God' loves us, especially when our parents don't, is sadly lacking. Just ask any 'unadoptable' kid in the foster care system - there are hundreds of thousands to choose from.

We ARE 'satisfied' with our rights, but restricting, removing, and 'reassigning' them, is a genuine cause for protest, because those who would do any of the above are assuredly trying to 'make our lives harder'. You're so full of shit your eyes are brown.

The only person your beliefs should affect, IS YOU.

Calling a woman's elective abortion of her pregnancy 'casual' is minimizing. Saying she is 'wrong' to do so, because of YOUR faith, is ridiculous.
