a myth does not prove Buddha did not exist either.

so you would believe that all things have consciousness, yet you sid i was putting words in your mouth for quoting you on that...

<quoted text>i'll take you sord on that nobody answer...

if the bible is incorrect, the god the bible describes is incoreect. yes, no-one can disprove that there may be some godlike being of some kind, regardless of the total lack of evidence for any such thing.

so if you do not believe in the god of the bible, what god do you believe in with no evidence? why do you have thi=ose beliefs?
I never said I didn't believe in the God of the Bible. Then again I don't just use the Bible as a point of reference to God. That would be silly. Also if you are going to question one religious document so intensely, shouldn't you also question the rest of them with the same vigor? Why single one out? Why single one religion out, for that matter? There's no logic in that.

Lol I talk to a lot of people. Simple as that. What is your personal standpoint then?

Buddha was a real human. his divinity or achieving enlightenment is what is mythical.

<quoted text>Oh, I agree that the concept of a God having anything to do with science is religious. Of course in the US everyone is free to believe whatever they want. Which is why religion is illegal to teach in public schools.
You are entitled to your belief just like the rest of us. However having your own doesn't make that of others incorrect. Especially when you can't use the scientific method to disprove it. The u.s. public school system is a joke. That's another conversation altogether.

There is a reason why the Earth spin towards the East. Now show some respect to that Easter Bunny. It needs some cuddling.

While some of your posts were jovial, I thought some of your others seemed quite passionate. But either way, groovy.

Absolute, non-sequiter.

why would an 'enlightened' person believe something there is no evidence at all for? seems rather unenlighted, by definition, really.

don't worry, i don't expect a serious answer from you. you seem to have hit your limit of discussion. you should just put it on a taped loop...

or you could surprise me...

you seem to be running out of logical and even theological arguments.

it's been a long time since the third grade...does telling on me to the playground lady come after calling names or is it the throwing of dirt clods?

<quoted text>I have no interest in disproving the existence of non-scientific concepts. That would be like painting a fence satin red when it already has ten coats of satin red. I was merely pointing out that some concepts are scientifically testable and hence can be proved wrong. Adam and Eve being one of them. Or two should I say.
Lol I respect your point of view on the Adam and Eve issue
