Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Your reading comprehension is zero.

By your logic the land mass we now call North America did not exist until some one found it.

All you demonstrated in the last 36 hours is:-
1. You know nothing about math.
2. You know nothing about science in general.
3. You know nothing about logic.
4. You know nothing about the bibull.

and because that goddidit. You don't even know which god you follow.

Yet you feel you know enough to say all science is rubbish.

In short you are pathetic.

Okay.
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."
The first of two contradictory creation accounts. Compare with Genesis 2:4-25 in which the order of events is entirely different.
The two creations
Who created heaven and earth?
When was the universe created?
The Gap Theory
(1:1-2:3) The Genesis 1 account conflicts with the order of events that are known to science.

In Genesis 1:1, the earth and "heaven" are created together "in the beginning," whereas according to current estimates, the earth and universe are about 4.6 and 13.7 billion years old, respectively.

In Genesis, the earth is created (1:1) before light (1:3), sun and stars (1:16); birds and whales (1:21) before reptiles and insects (1:24); and flowering plants (1:11) before any animals (1:20). The order of events known from science is in each case just the opposite.

(1:3-5, 14-19) "Let there be light"
God creates light and separates light from darkness, and day from night, on the first day. Yet he didn't make the light producing objects (the sun and the stars) until the fourth day (1:14-19). And how could there be "the evening and the morning" on the first day if there was no sun to mark them?

(1:6-8) The Firmament (Heaven)
God spends one-sixth of his entire creative effort (the second day) working on a solid firmament. This strange structure, which God calls heaven, is intended to separate the higher waters from the lower waters.

Too easy!
;)

Answer this please...

Matthew 2:23 And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.

Nowhere in the Old Testament is such a prophecy found, so how could such a one be fulfilled?

Stop stalling present your case for this god of yours.
Just the facts please and stop cowering from this.
Some something or someone touched you on the head while you were most likely on your knees.. Ahem.. And this whatever said he is with Me.. Not I am with you? Didn't you just show it was a self made delusion. Otherwise that makes no sense whatsoever.
How did you know it was god making this nonsensical statement and not just the man you finished off? Or Bigfoot? Or a space alien? Maybe a leprechaun? Maybe it was the great bear spirit? It's so vague and nonsensical any of those options would be viable.

Tacitus a roman imperial would never call Jesus the messiah or the Christ. It's insane to even suggest that hence we know it has to be a forgery which first appeared in the year 1600.
<quoted text>
lol... Is that what your atheist sites teach you?

"Scholars generally consider Tacitus's reference to the execution of Jesus by Pontius Pilate to be both authentic, and of historical value as an independent Roman source."

Oh, and it was in 116 AD, not. 1600....

Proof? Do I have to price to you that Italian laws or Japanese laws don't matter to Americans or Canadians?

O_o

The rules in Leviticus were prescribed for the members of that tribe, they are considered a part of the covenant of God with the Jewish people.

Christians have never followed these laws, at least after their separation from the party of the Hebrews.

The same chapter in Leviticus also forbids eating shellfish, bacon cheeseburgers (meat and milk, meat of cloven animal), wearing mixed fabrics, and sowing 2 crops in one field. Christians do not follow these rules.....

No.

You said you could find a contradiction to ANY scripture.

You've found no contradiction to Genesis 1:1.

Try again?
