Snakes biting tails.

This is where the misunderstanding comes with the Ouroboros. A snake biting and holding, providing a fence, corral, or boundary. That is what is represented in those ancient portrayals.

Once you get the tail in the mouth a certain distance the snake starts swallowing. You have a physical reflex action that tries to keep going. Long snake, small section doing the work of swallowing itself. There are some serious physical and existential aspects to this as I alluded to in the first post about it.

While I agree with you, several Topix Christians do maintain their beliefs are indisputable facts.

As I have said far too many times, these "fundies" cast a poor light on Christianity. Like it or not when a person claims "I am a Christian" then spouts nonsense (at best). It makes all Christians look like idiots.

It isn't fair but it does happen.

Capisce?
.. the snake weaves its way through many myths because it sheds its skin and is reborn ..

.. in Hinduism, it's a symbol for reincarnation. Serpents are also prominent in Greek, ancient European, Nordic, African and Aborigine mythology ..

.. cross-cultural comparisons of myths reflect snake symbology ..

.. in the bible, the serpent tempts Adam & Eve and they are born again with a knowledge of good and evil, death and morality. To accept the symbology as fact is a misnomer ..

What is so hard to understand?
And what revelation do you you think are explaining to someone who knows way more about the faith process than whatever you have heard and regurgitated on the Internet?
I pretty much left the faith for quite some years. Which is why your earlier attempt to claim I am so indoctrinated I could never envision someone leaving was just so ridiculous that I didn't waste my time including that bit of info in my response.
And don't scientists have different theories on how life began? Don't those individual scientists believe their theory to probably be the right one? Some think mars now even. And can't only one be right? So does that prove the method science uses is bullshit?
More pseudo intellectualism nonsense
Let me know if you have a serious point to make
My point is that a great many people, not necessarily you, make the claim that faith is a way to knowledge. The fact that faith can lead different people to contradictory conclusions says that faith is NOT a way to knowledge. It is quite likely to lead on away from the truth.

I think that it has been well demonstrated that skepticism...that is, taking a long, hard look at the subject and not accepting conclusions without demonstrative supporting facts...has been far more effective at finding truth than faith.

Why you consider faith a virtue is beyond me. Many of the people that tell you to have faith are trying to sell you a pig in a poke.

I'm usually working on a big case. Or two. Or three.

So a guy goes to see a psychiatrist. The shrink shows him a Rorschacht inkblot and asks him what he sees.

"Oh, that's a penis," says the guy.

The shrink shows him another one: "I see two naked women having sex."

The shrink shows him a third inkblot: "This one is clearly a man having sex with a woman from behind."

The psychiatrist says, "Sir, I think you have an obsession with sex."

The patient replies, "You think I have an obsession with sex? You're the one showing me all these dirty pictures!!"

Please give a link to a picture of gravity and electricity. All you have ever seen is the effects of gravity and electricity just like we can see the effects of dark matter.

That proves you are a liar once again.
No problem, you are just proving your religion is a pack of lies.
