Jesus wasn't in the clique and the powers of the time did not want his name to be known. The powerful elite have always tried to make their own history.

you'd think one of his friends or believers would have written it down...seems a little fishy, yes?

i mean, if you truly believe this guy to be a god, wouldn't you wnat to get his words right? why wait till long after he was dead to write what you think you remember he said, or what someone told you they thought he said? Pure BS. if these people thought he was a god, they would have written everything he said, saved his old clothes, sold t-shirts with his picture...the whole spiel.

that would be the "clique" that you know treated women like human beings I guess, I mean , no offense but if I wa going to make up a god and pretend he was a product of incest, I wouldn't make him so stupid and cruel that he would write scripture that encouraged slavery and the subjugation. of women, I'd make him, well you know, nice,he would be caring, decent and kind, not the abomination you worship...oh and yeah..he would be a scientist so that we don't have to have this ridiculous argument over and over again....I guess I'd just want him to be a decent fella and not the retard you goddies masturbate to your entire lives

The real God is a scientist, the one who created DNA and the elements. Just in case you haven't figured out yet, he's everything that is. He possess both negative and positive qualities. I'm sure there is a reason why He imposed those laws in the biblical times. But then, you know there is a time and place for everything. Just in case you didn't notice, times have changed and yet you're complaining about issues from the past. But I can understand where you're coming from as I don't get bible literalists myself. They're hard headed. lol

Do you not believe that Eve was created as a help meet for Adam?

So the bible is whatever you feel it should mean? hardly the word of any god, then, is it? not that it really is now...

We know for a fact that the human race was not started by two created people. especially two genetically identical people.

Sorry Yankee, you are facepalmingly wrong about evolution. The fact that you don't understand the evidence for it does not make it a weak theory. To judge how strong a theory is you need to poll scientists and you will find that the vast majority will say that evolution is a very very very strong theory.
You might not think you are lying, but once you are corrected and cannot find evidence to disprove the correction if you continue with the same claims then you are lying. In the first case you might not have known better. In the second case you did. So please stop lying, or prove that there is no evidence for evolution.
Odds are that you are just another lying creationist. We have had a few of them here lately. They know that they cannot defend their belief in creation so they deny it, while trying to disprove evolution at the same time.
Now you can say that you are not convinced. That would not be a lie. But to say it is not a strong theory is a lie. To say that there is no evidence of it is a lie. To say that it cannot be tested is a lie.
Do you understand?
Is it too late for a rebuttal?

Probably.

Since your argument is from the point of view that evolution is correct, you will falsely believe the status quo is on your side.

But that simply is not, and never has been, the case. Evolution has no substantial evidence whatsoever, and never has. The only reason such poor scientific ideas have even emerged is strictly for political and sociological reasons. It is no coincidence that both a new, anti-Christian world view, and pro-evolution world view have emerged together.

And, I am not a Creationist. I think the universe is billions of years old, so do not hold to the Creationist view at all. I merely point out a fact that most laymen, and evidently, most scientists (who usual lack knowledge of biology anyway, as science is very specialized and not general), hold to a world view that has no foundation whatsoever in science, or reality. And that is evolution.

Does that scare you?

Jesus said there will be no formal unions such as marriage in the Kingdom of Heaven, so I believe woman will have a greater ranking in Heaven than they now have on earth.
