If you mean this meaning:
: a religious practice based on the belief that knowledge of spiritual truth can be gained by praying or thinking deeply
then this is a part of Christianity as well as most other religions.
Mysticism goes way back, into 300yrs BC and before.

Your argument that because some thing happened in the past means it should be acceptable today makes me wonder if, because Caluglia married his sister that should be the norm now?
You keep trying to change the parameters of your own claims. Why don't you, just once, concede you were mistaken?

Yes, Mysticism predates Christianity. It's no surprise you'd try to steal it, too, though.

What's your point? That the Jews who followed Christ stole mysticism from the Jews? You can't steal what you already have.

Your concept of right and wrong is not universal. For instance, most cultures oppose stealing because it is disruptive to group unity, which was paramount in small communities. On the other hand, some cultures had a god who looked over thieves, like mercury (hermes); theft was allowable in some circumstances. One of the greatest western heroes was robin hood, who was a thief and occasional murderer.
Abortion beliefs are just that--beliefs. The ONLY beliefs that are pertinent, however, are those of the pregnant woman. She is the only sentient being directly affected by the pregnancy.

Hmmm No wonder early Christians felt safe in stealing others' beliefs/stories. They probably believed they were protected.

I didn't change anything, wasn't it you that mentioned the Greeks and their little boy toys as a valid reason for gay marriage.

Why don't the marriages of royal brothers and sisters make a valid reason for incest. Afterall it happened in history.

And that is but one belief of many.

I know, you have no respect for others' beliefs even as you condemn these by claiming your God is *the only* God.

Wanted to add to this. We now know King Tut was a product of an incestuous relationship. And he was a sickly child/adult.

We now know incestuous relationships more often than not cause severe deformities in offspring. That's why it's frowned upon and no longer the norm.

Wasn't too long ago cousins could legally marry in southern states. Second and third cousins still can, IIRC.

But I see you're still willing to cherry pick what you believe out of the Bible.

I clearly remember reading bible stories of mothers and sons making babies, brothers and sisters, fathers and daughters... and you're probably as peachy with that as you are about believing Noah's flood was the only flood worth mentioning.

Mysticism did not begin and end with Christians. It goes way back into Ancient Egypt. That is my point. Most of the things you believe began and end with Christianity does not. There's a rich history Christians tried to usurp as their own.

So are you admitting the definition of marriage did not begin and end with one woman and one man? That modern LGBT have not "changed" the definition of marriage after all?

That was your original claim. All proof aside, are you willing to concede you are mistaken?

What are you talking about at the end? I've already posted why incestuous relationships are no longer the norm. Do some research instead of asking silly rhetorical questions. Please!

Not every modern day marriage results in producing children. With easy access to abortion and birth control brother/sister relationships shouldn't be a problem. that goes for cousins too.

Why not? I'm peachy with everything except killing babies in the womb.

It has been changed from one man and one woman to anybody.

Webster's New World Dictionary of 1968 says;

Marriage--refers to the state of or relations between a man and a woman who have become husband and wife or the ceremony marking this union.

I never said it started with Christianity.

Ancient Egypt had it's form of mysticism and the Hebrews had their's.
One didn't get it from the other. If by mysticism you mean through prayer and meditation becoming closer to God, no religion has a monopoly.

You've been proven wrong. Again, show a bit of integrity, be an adult, and admit it.

That's right. Neither does Christianity. Glad you can admit it. Please let K&P know.

The problem with that is, if underground water suddenly flooded upwards, you'd have massive unsupported caverns which wouldn't have been able to support the weight of the water above it. The collapse wold, of course, create huge holes which would be filled with the water anyway. But there is no evidence of massive underground water reserves in that region or signs of any such collapse in the past.

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
