As I said, I don't believe in YOUR 'God', who responds to prayer even though He has a 'vast eternal plan' for mankind...I worship little, and praise much.
You're welcome to believe any way you want; and when you try to involve your Deity in the common law, you're welcome to reap the consequences.
Serendipity is reality, and Karma's a bitch.

What is the Divine?

There goes your theory.
Not really because we still talk about the 'four corners' of the earth even though we know the earth is round. Four corners usually means the north, south, east and west.

Jesus also mentions that when the kingdom of God comes some will be in the light and people will still be sleeping. That indicates his understand of the world being round and actually revolving causing day and night.

I guess the religion you follow conveniently ignored that for 1500+ years.
A circle is flat; think of a pancake.
Job 38:15 "The earth takes shape like clay under a seal." (Clay when stamped under a seal is flattened and round in shape).
I believe that refers to the topography of the land meaning that the earth takes shape like clay pressed under a seal and it's hills and valleys stand out like folds in a garment.

The bible is not a viable source for making a point.

The bible is nothing more than work of fiction derived from an ancient rule book. Put it on the shelf with "The Exorcist" and grow up, before you piss off Santa Clause. Remember, Santa's birthday is coming up in two months and he might not bring you anything.

You dance around naked in the moonlight and have actual or imitated sexual acts as some religious rite and I am the extremist?

Thanks but what am I missing and how am I misinterperting the passage. I agree that it may not mean what I said does what does it mean?

Does it matter how many times Bitner's told you she doesn't practice this "ritual"?

Apparently not.

She has never told me anything but it is part of her religious rites. I don't care one way or the other but if she is calling me an 'extremmist' perhaps she could look closer to home.

No.

For a woman who practices ritual cannibalism, you sure are judgmental.

How was thAt passage looked at for the 1500 years prior to the discovery that the earth is a sphere? Have you read all of job discussing the ends of the earth? Or that heaven is longer than the earth? Spheres don't have ends or a length.

Never mind that the word used as "circle" (hebrew " chug") does not imply a spherichal shape....

Either way, I dont think the bible makes a case for either a flat earth or round/spherichal earth.

Sure, floods have happened. Again, that is not in dispute.... but I will still refer to noahs ark and the world wide flood as a fable.

Feces did. You asked where I got the idea that any questioned a flood of biblical proportions.

Good question. I doubt that it was even debated. Looking back in hindsight it almost seems that we were given clues.

Is there a separate word in Hebrew for spherichal?

Yep, floods happen every day but not many of them change the sea level or the size of the Dead Sea.

Imbecile.
Bitner missed my point on several occasions, and answered back to me in a humiliated and sheepish tone, you probably will too, knowing how much of a fool you are, and how much you will miss my points.
Bitner is not trustworthy, just like many women, who don't say what they mean, so just because she says she doesn't dance naked in moonlight, doesn't mean it's true that she doesn't flaunt her ugly body in moonlight.
You know what? You think you're so smart. And you act so damn smug. But here. I'm gonna pop your bubble. Trust me, it won't hurt a bit.

I posted a long time ago that one of the things my ex began doing after we divorced was something called Moon Dancing. It is not like the old Van Morrison song, though. There was no ritual involved. It was a bunch of drunk, horny 30somethings who started dancing around a bon fire when the moon was overhead on a 5-acre property near a mountain.

How it got transferred to Bitner has always mystified me. You ACers can be so deceptive to yourselves and others. Same as that accusation of butter/bacon sandwiches. No clue where that stems from, except I suspect NR/K&P secretly eat these.

I'm just sick of watching you know-nothings try to tear Bitner down because she's Wiccan. Especially as some of you hypocrites whine and cry about others persecuting them because they're Christians.
