How sad that you view your creator like such.

Pretty big and beautiful "ant farm",wouldn't ya say? God intended us to be happy. Man,"shook the glass" deliberately through his(our)sinful nature. Free choice/will is a WONDERFUL gift. UGLY when abused. The innocent suffer because of it as well as those who are doing the abusing of it. Let's put the blame where it belongs. Jesus died for our sins to free us from the bonds of sin. THAT'S a loving God.

Why is it "great" that he saw abortion in a totally different light that lead to his change? It was not based on "lack of inspections",AyakaNeo and you know it. The truth about what the abortion industry is about(what it does to an innocent baby,his/her mother)is where the truth shone. Not on a his dirty,unsterile office where women where left to die.

Abortion kills a baby.

Abortion kills the soul of a woman,emotionally and mentally,as well as physically. WHO on your side cares about either? ZERO,that's who. In fact,your abortion fight is all about a ME ME ME mentality minus the consequences or lifetime effects ON that woman or the generations to follow from the deliberate death of her child.

If only you could be a fly on the wall of your local CPC,Project Rachel,or Dr's/shrinks office to hear the truth about how women truly suffer from abortion.

Good heavens child,please try to pay attention. It was Playa that made the claim. But,you did hit MY point to her right on the head.

Although,I wouldn't suggest throwing it out. I suggest that she pray to the Holy Spirit for wisdom,understanding while reading it.

I think we all understand this "love for men story" as written directly from the imaginations of men.
Genesis 3:16
Unto the woman He said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
1 Corinthians 11:3
But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
1 Corinthians 11:5-15
New International Version (NIV)
5 But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head—it is the same as having her head shaved. 6 For if a woman does not cover her head, she might as well have her hair cut off; but if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, then she should cover her head.
7 A man ought not to cover his head,[a] since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man. 8 For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; 9 neither was man created for woman, but woman for man. 10 It is for this reason that a woman ought to have authority over her own[b] head, because of the angels. 11 Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. 12 For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God.
13 Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? 14 Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him, 15 but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering.
Ephesians 5:22-24
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and He is the Saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
You sound like a woman scorned. The consensus of pro-abortion women is that marriage and motherhood is a prison sentence where within the woman is victimized. I don't view marriage or motherhood like that. God intended man to leave his mother and father and clings to his wife. THEY become ONE. With that said,we are one body. Your negative experiences has tanished such a beautiful union. Motherhood is the extension of that beautiful,loving bond.

I certainly do, all too well; it's why I kicked the toxic baggage of gods, religions, and churches to the curb over 25 years ago. This kind of "love for men" translated into hatred for women, which militant religionists like sASSy routinely deny.
These days, I have seven good reasons to love being what I call Catholicism-Free (CF for short):
1. No constant and tedious preaching about "sin"
2. No long and boring church services and sermons to ruin my Sundays
3. No hassles about the weekly drag known as "confession."
4. Not having to pop out more kids than I wanted because of Catholicism's anti-contraception doctrines
5. Not having to give any of my money to the church's blood-sucking hierarchy by the church-based extortion practice known as "tithing."
6. No worries about my child being a victim of one of the Catholic Church's vile pedophile priests
7. Freedom to decide for MYSELF on all important personal matters like sex, marriage, and reproduction
Personally, I find it a gross obscenity that a group of male clerics in dresses has the arrogance to believe it has the "right" to rule over millions of women's lives. Luckily for me, I can -- and DID -- get rid of this toxic church's baggage so it wouldn't ruin the quality of MY life. I celebrate that decision every day.
For me, being Catholicism-Free (CF) ROCKS. It's wonderful how much freedom a woman has when she ISN'T mentally chained to a regressive and oppressive religious institution.
Again,women are not victims because you were made to feel inferior or unworthy in your life. Enjoy what you relate "CATHOLIC-FREE" or CF to being. ROCK on babe!

I find it ironic that you live a total contradiction. You discriminate against females in the woman. They are VICIMIZED by your group of anti-lifers to death.

Enjoy YOUR freedom. To hell with everybody else and their rights.

Not a chance. Whether the master is kind or not, a slave is still a slave. A true marriage is based on partnership, mutual consent and mutual compromise, not submission. You Christians have a terrible, terrible notion of how marriage is supposed to work, and I see it time and time again in Christian households.
It's not a partnership when both parties work full time but only the woman does any of the housework, thereby coming home to more, constant work while her lazy husband and kids sit on their asses and do nothing to help. It's not a partnership when the woman of the house is treated worse than the family dog and can't sit down for five minutes to herself without her selfish husband and kids demanding her attention. It's not a partnership when the woman is trying to do something for herself like EAT and one of the kids needs something, but the man just sits there watching football, fully expecting her to take care of it because he's the man and she's the woman. This type of typical Christian mistreatment of wives and mothers is based on some outdated notion that it's "women's work" to do laundry, wash dishes and take care of the kids. These are the "Kodak moment" fathers that may as well just be sperm donors, for all the effort they put into raising their own kids. Aside from throwing their weight around to boss the kids and wife into submission every night, they contribute nothing to the upbringing.
Head of the household? No. Bully of the household, yes. And these women put up with this servitude, this belittling mistreatment, because of one line in that filthy bible you people feel the need to drag into every conversation or argument you have. These women are not happy; they are miserable...but they're too scared to get out of their situation because they have their religion telling them it's their duty.
Keep your chains far, far away from me. You can have them all. I will have a partner that treats me as an equal and an ally in all things, not one that thinks I should "submit" to him. I'm a person, not a piece of property, and only a fiend would attempt to convince anyone they're better off in servitude and would really like it with the right guy. People into BDSM use safe words and keep their roleplaying separate from their public lives; Christians do not.
"Come, be a slave...you'll love it!"
No. Your sales pitch stinks. Now stop trying to use your bible to tell us what to do with our bodies. Believe it or not, the world doesn't revolve around Christian dogma.
Oh boy!

Listen,I am truly sorry that many women feel used and abused like you describe. But,I gotta say,today,women ADD to this. Let me explain. I hear women(you and some others on here..cough..cough...OCEAN56.. .)degrade the role of homemaker and motherhood as "if" it is a pathetic and unworthy position in life. If we care for others on the outside(jobs where we attend to,care for,nurse,service,etc..)then we are considered "employeed with honor". If we take on the job at our own home,with our own children and families,we are prisoners some how.

Wake up lady. Charity begins at home. Stand proud. Hold you head high. Understand the true value and honor that it is to be a mother and caretaker of our homes and you will THEN lead the mislead pack to a very serene,honorable place.

No job is stress free or without it's tiring moments. Get a grip on reality. Don't take your insecurities out on motherhood/being a wife.

You wanna leave it all behind in such of a "worthy" lot in life(work outside the home),then be prepared to do doubletime work. If you have kids,THEY come first. You want to put them last,then you will have no joy in your life and your priorities will distort who YOU really are and what YOUR place in life is really about. Sorry to be so harsh.

He's the perfect little minion to his god.
There are many reasons that people come to the conclusion that there is no God. It's very simple-minded thinking on your part to believe that they weren't spiritually lost. Some are so lost,taught to believe that there was no God,rejected a notion of a God,etc..only because they were victims of circumstances that lead them in that direction. God,through his Holy Spirit will and does lead his creations back to him,in his all his love. That is why he says that NONE will go before him and say that they didn't know him.

It is up to us to accept or respond to his calling. God will not force us to. He wants us to with our free will.

Jesus first repeated what he said, then summarized: "‘I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh.’ The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying,‘How can this man give us his flesh to eat?’" (John 6:51–52).

His listeners were stupefied because now they understood Jesus literally—and correctly. He again repeated his words, but with even greater emphasis, and introduced the statement about drinking his blood: "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you; he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him" (John 6:53–56).

Rather than reading the same old-same old, I tried to put the argument on a scientific level by making the dispute between creation by intelligence (God) or chance (Big Bang).
There is no evidence to support the biblical account of the flood or noahs ark so there is nothing to dispute.

For the Idea that you posed, Isn't it ok to just say I dont know?

True. The contention was that he is only a myth. Most experts say he was a real person.
I imagine that he was a real person that inspired mythical legends surrounding his life. He could also actually be a composite of of more than one person, too, which may be the basis for the Trinity belief. If he did in fact exist, then he made enough of an impression on the times that he became a known historical figure.

I don't think the point is to degrade wives/mothers/homemakers, but to simply point out that we can do anything we want with our lives and are not just relegated to those roles.

The flip side is people who say ignorant things like how we belong in the kitchen or we should be home taking care of kids. We're people, just like men, and are not just put on this Earth to be breeding stock and glorified maids. I'm NOT saying that is what wives and mothers are, but that is not our sole purpose. Those aren't what we "should" be doing but like anything else is a choice.

They do and it is the source of discussion all the time even among scholars. The thing is they all believe in God and the Christians all believe in Christ as his messenger. It doesn't matter how they get there. What happens on this thread is a discussion between believers and non believers with non believers using the small differences of believers as a reason to throw away the word of God.
DOn't believe that is your choice but don't diminish our beliefs because of small differences.
This is the thing a lot of you don't get...I, and others, are not diminishing your beliefs but are reacting to the Christian contention that you have the truth or know for a fact that an unseen God exists. Believe what you want, but that doesn't mean the bible can't be discussed, debated or dissected.

If you are uncomfortable with people bringing up discrepancies and contradictions in the bible then maybe it's because you know the bible is in fact quite inconsistent and you simply don't wish to acknowledge that to yourself.

I would be more than happy for you to tell me how the words of Christ affect you in your life and what messages you are inspired by. Basically your understanding of what he was trying to tell us.
I'm sure you have heard enough of me.
To me Jesus was probably a very charismatic and assertive person who made an impression on a great many people. I think he was probably a pacifist with an idealized vision of how civilized people should interact in a world where we have our humanity in common. Sort of a "we're all in this together so we should all just get along" philosophy. However, if Jesus was walking around telling folks he was the Son of God or the King of Kings then he may have been a touch delusional, too.
