I am aware that men commit sins with that scripture. However I don't worship men or church. When the Bible is talking about stoning witches it's talking about real practicing witches in the very real occult. Witches that burnt their children to death in sacrifices to Satan.
Your argument is like claiming stop signs should be removed because so many accident happen around them.
You need to see and accept that the so called 'witches' of the Dark Ages were not baby killers. Baby killing/burning was essentially a thing that happened pre-Christ,the witch hunts that we are talking about was from about 600 to 900 AD and was initiated by the Church.

The Church thought that there actually was real witches (we know of course that in truth there are NO real witches) and they started killing. It was a VERY shameful thing the Church did, and hundreds of thousands of innocent people, mostly women, died.

And for the record there are no real witches, real witches defined as someone who has supernatural powers. NO one has EVER had supernatural powers in the Looooong history of mankind.

Yup.
why can you not give these proofs you say you have?

i have listed my proofs over and over again for you upon request. why can you not do the same?

it is because this is another one of your continuous lies.

instead of the proof you say you have, you could just show one post you have put up that isn't a lie...

You gotta honestly ask yourself -- what would believing in God, and His Bible, change in your life.
Well, we'd have to shut off out minds and discard our "God-given" brains in order to believe the nonsense you spout about both science AND the Bible's theology.

And I had have to embrace a whole lot of bigotries and hates that now give me the willies -- things you espouse, for example: anti-Catholic bigotry, sick, hateful lies about gay people. etc.

In other words, "believing in God, and His Bible" as you claim to would make me instantly a much less ethical and loving and a much worse, more hateful, more evil human being. And why would I want that? More to the point, why would YOU want that kind of feather in your cap when you stand in front of Jesus and explain what the %$#@ you thought you were doing here on Topix?

Sz, you said that 'adults make their own decisions'- but did you stop to think that unless *you* came up with the whole evolution theory, then *you*(an adult) are following behind someone else's idea.
Just sayin'...
The difference between yo and us is that YOU take what you spout on faith since it was programmed into you by Pastor Billy Bob or Mummy and Daddy.

WE, however, can take the scientific research that demonstrates or "proves" evolution and look over it, replicate the experiments, try to find holes in them, etc.

It's called the peer-review process, and despite 150 years of rigorous peer-review attempts to dislodge or disprove the tenets of the theory of Evolution, it has stood the test and become the backbone of the modern life sciences.

<quoted text>You got proof all species existed at the same time?
After creating Adam, God paraded animals before him "to see what he would call them" (Genesis 2:19). The Scripture records that Adam's animal names stuck, which may indicate the names were more than titles in that they accurately described the animals.

Yup that's our job!
Bet you didn't know that God came to us and said hey you guys I have a job for you. I want you to go to places like Topix and decide who is a Christian for me.
Cross my heart that's how it happened!!!
So you DO decide who is a real Christian, and YOUR particular denomination is the only true one??

weren't you the one that posted about Dr. Ballard looking for the Ark?(when he was doing no such thing...)

i hate to be rude, but you generally have no idea at all what you are talking about or, apparantly what you are even reading.

perhaps it is best if you let the cults think for you...just keep it in your tax subsidized church, won't you dear?

your bible on the other hand, is full of mostly inaccurate statements, as you have been shown, but cannot accept as truth.
denying facts in front of your face is not a healthy mindset. it is a clear sign of cult indoctrination.

Okay - then show me some of that ""verifiable, reproduceable, evidence".

I just want to see one example of proof that humans evolved from anything other than God.

Yes, and we are quite pointedly certain that YOU are one of these people, all of your priggish self-righteousness aside.

Mankind, in his ever present power hunger, always wants to be better than the other one - richer than the other one - more famous than the other one --- so he began creating all of these 'religions'- to set his group apart from the "others" -for the purpose of vanity, greed and power.
And your particular brand of late-blooming 19th century Christian heresy known as Protestant fundamentalist Christianity is a PRIME EXAMPLE of this.

You seem to be saying that you don't have a religion, you have a relationship, but this is nothing other than a tawdry, easily-refuted bit of self-serving religious dogma put forward by the leaders of your fundamentalist Christian RELIGION.

In fact, every point you have made in your mawkish fundamentalist proselytizing in the past two days is a theological cliché put forward by the leaders of your non-denom Protestant Christianity.

THAT is your religion. And any claim that you do not follow a religion is specious nonsense.

I disagree. It is the arrogant fundamentalists who think they are better than everyone else and are in a position to judge all. It is you and your ilk that is disgusting.

You appear to be, like most atheists, only looking for an argument - not a debate, nor the truth. The Bible says not to argue with "fools" - therefore, I won't allow you to engage me into your argument.

how about the clear fossil record of primates moving from more apelike to more human like on our families' branch of evolution.

one missing link after the other. you can actually look at the fossils online if you like...even other species of hominids that we interbred with that you god didn't even mention creating..how does that work?

of course, you god is a proven myth, and there is no evidence for any non-mythical god, gods, or goddesses ever. not one shred.

And you, as well, Woodtick, aren't looking for answers or the truth - just an argument.

I just can't figure out why non believers are so angry all the time - always using the same old spin words, i.e. lie, myth, prove it, and others.
.
But then I remember how satan is wasting no time in seeking to devour the souls that allow him to.
