It always amazes me when Fundimentalist Christians like Chuckles here implores rational people to 'grow up and stop being naive' when they themselves believe in talking snakes, magic fruit, a non-existant world-wide flood, a man living in the belly of a fish for 3 days, and a whole host of other fairy tales.

Chucky, if you have faith in God, that's great. But if I were you, I would take some of your own advice regarding 'growing up, and stop being naive'.

I've read "The Tao of Pooh". Can I make arrogant claims of authority without observing the rules of scientific method too?

...maybe I'll qualify as a PhD if I go on to read "The Te of Piglet".

Do you even know what we have been able to disprove in the Bible...and if you do, do you understand the ramifications of it???
I don't feel the need to "DISprove" anything.

I believe in peoples rights to believe and worship however they wish-so long they are RATIONAL, do NOT hurt anyone else, AND they accept PERSONAL responsibility for their OWN actions (as in NOT BLAMING others UNjustly)--like SANE ADULTS!!!

It's a CONSTIUTIONAL thing...you know..what this nation is founded upon?!

So, YOU can STUFF YOUR own warped "ramifications" where the sun doesnt shine-becauseI don't NEED your beliefs (or the LACK of them) because I have my OWN.

That, of course, would not be a myth/allegory, but Moses, Adam and Eve, Exodus, Noah's flood,Tower of Babel, Joshua's conquests and other stories found there....are.
All of the 10 commandments are covered by the Golden rule that almost every culture on earth formulated at some time in their far past. We know that the Pentateuch (in which we find the 10 commandments) was not written by Moses and was put to papyrus around 600-400 BC by at least 3 different people. The Chinese philosopher Confucius wrote his 'Golden Rule around 500 BC.
See, the thing is that the founding myths of the Christian religion are being shown to be false and nothing more then allegorical. We can prove an unbroken line of humanity from at least 200,000 years ago.
All these years we have been told the Bible is the divinely inspired work of God, and all truth. it is not...it is the work of men, inventing a religion, just as was done thousands of years ago by the Greeks and Romans and other brain challenged people of the times.
There is no truth in what you proselytize about...religion is bullsh!t of the highest order, and you cannot prove otherwise.
Not a word that I have said is intended to proslytize.

You DID state that the ENTIRE old testament is myth and allegory.

Why do you feel so threatened when I say it is the word of God?

I just pointed out a flaw in your original statement.

Believe or don't, I don't care.

Another creation "science" discovery... oh, wait...
And that is evidence for the theory of evolution? I can say that about Michael Jordan's athleticism.

In reference to the EPAS gene in your article:

Mutations in this gene are associated with erythrocytosis familial type 4,[4] pulmonary hypertension and chronic mountain sickness.[6] There is also evidence that certain variants of this gene provide protection for people living at high altitude. EPAS 1 is useful in high altitudes as a short term adaptive response. However, EPAS 1 can also cause excessive production of red blood cells leading to chronic mountain sickness that can lead to death and inhibited reproductive abilities. Some mutations that increase its expression are associated with increased hypertension and stroke at low altitude, with symptoms similar to mountain sickness. People permanently living at high altitudes might experience selection of EPAS 1 to reduce the fitness consequences of excessive red blood cell production.

These people can probably move mountains too. LOL.

Then why the fcuk are you on this forum bud.

I wasn't asking YOU to disprove anything. I was going to show you proof that your Bible is WRONG

Don't like to hear truths that contradict your 'faith' then don't use this forum or interact with atheists on here.

You say:
"You DID state that the ENTIRE old testament is myth and allegory"

Then I apologize for 'misspeaking' and I did clarify what I was saying.

I don't feel the least bit 'frightened' when you say it is the 'word of God' because I know it's not. It just bronze age crap that was written by Jewish men with good motives and it got out of control.

Of course I don't believe, and I don't care if you do.

This IS a place to debate and interact with people who believe many
divergent things.

Do you want to continue on?

Anyways, absolutely not. If god got "his way," as elucidated in his book, our society would be an absolute shit hole.
Fascinating statement. I was of the persuasion that due to the present society circumstances many christians wish to pray for God's kingdom to come and His will to be accomplished on the earth in the same way that it is accomplished in heaven.

We've already had a taste of what the world would be like if religion rules....it was called the Dark Ages, and the place was really a sh!thole.

Religion was worse then dictators rule because the religion thought it was doing 'the right thing.' Many, many innocent people died.

Is Islam a lie? It will soon be the majority religion on earth. More people now practice Islam than practice Catholicism (which used to be the largest denomination).
Is Hinduism a lie? Around a billion people in India and thereabouts practice this religion...has been around longer than Christianity has been around...it is generally regarded as the world's oldest organized religion.
Both of the above are dynamic growing religions who's adherents are just as positive that they serve the ‘True God Of The Universe’™ as you are about yours.
Check the stats on belief in Christianity in the UK. I believe they just did a census about it.
In your hubris you think you know the true answer and you cannot see the biases that Christianity has imbued in you, my friend.
We have been hearing that same old garbage about Islam for long, but to no avail. The same with Budhism.
Christianity to date are still topping the chart, globally.
I am not here to criticise any religion, but to prove to liars that God exist.

Freakshow, Gods Kingdom will bring perfection into the equation. Religion is a defuncted word, as the way of life is the only way of living. Perfect health, no death or worries of any kind. This is the original purpose of God, it hasn't changed. If you believe the sick religions of today, we would all be damned to death.

Your perceptions are wrong. Religion caused the crusades, inquisitions and world wars. In the American civil war, ww1 and ww2.......religions of the same creed were on both sides. Think twice about your religion, Catholic, Protestant, etc...ETC... fought EACH OTHER in war. Hypocrates. You have no religion of your own........doesn't exsist. You still have traces of these false world religions. You must understand that the true God has an organization on earth, the same as in heaven. He is a God of order, not disorder. Look at the universe.
