My advice, Pat, do some more research on figures of speech.
Using the phrase,'' Red Herring ", always makes you look clueless or empty.

Christians believe Jesus and the biblical reason for his suffering to be true. The Bible is true and if believing it makes Christians enemies of the world, then thats just the way it goes.
Your misunderstanding is expected, you are after all a christian and viewing this from the christian point.

What causes the friction is not the babble, after all it’s just a book of old wives tales and bedtime stories and there are plenty of them around. Nor is it the christian belief in the stories contained in that book, we all have belief of one sort or another, you are as entitled to yours as I am to mine. There can be no law to limit thought, which is why I am perfectly within my rights to think you are a blithering moron but I digress.

Nope the problem arises when christards attempt to force their personal belief over the personal belief of others using lies and deceit cherry picked from that book of old wives tales and bedtime stories.

Sorry, Marky, but I don't know any other term that means "observation that draws attention away from the central issue in an argument or discussion."

If you want me to stop accusing you of dragging red herrings, then stop dragging red herrings.

That is the reason why all the so called atheist, liars, etc, using science as a shield or cover, must end up surely in the grave or as a soil, while God's work continues.
Don’t work that way.

Some of that truth comes from science, some from logic and some from hard physical fact. Just because it shows your “faith” to be not factual but simple “belief” does not make those scientists, thinkers and fact finders liars, it means that you have a belief.

To be atheist you simply do not need to lean on a god crutch, any god crutch. To be a liar you need to either deliberately or compulsively distort the truth, as christians are so good at doing.

To call those who know through physical evidence that your belief is not factual liars is just a pathetic admission that you are clueless godbot of little intelligence.

And selectively making BS up claiming that death does not apply to you because you believe in a god is the wishful thinking of clueless a godbot of little intelligence and no evidence to confirm it.

What this boils down to is your nasty, incredulous and ignorant attitude to anyone who does not follow your exact delusion. A delusion based on NOTHING but bronze age and iron age books with NO actual evidence to back up that delusion.

And you call people, who see the physical evidence liars? How do you sleep at night?

Among all the world's religion, Christianity stands out most.
As the biggest group of deluded fanatical liars who learned all the want to know from their genocidal, child murdering apologist for rape and slavery of a god?

(Here one can also read up as to what the actual sin of Sodom was...not being hospitable.)
Ezek.28 allready makes clear that the relam above the stars are forbidden turf.
But i'll look on for the actual verse.
Ironically, the Sodom thing I learned from Mormons, it's amazing how things get ignored by religious people when it's convenient for them.

Greatest?

A Tale of Two Cities sold over 200 million copies and a brilliant book

The Lord of the Rings sold over 150 million copies and great if you like the story of a long walk

“The little prince”,“The Hobbit”,“Hong lou meng” and “And Then There Were None” all sold over 100 million copies

The babble is not listed in the top 100 selling books, it’s so great that they have to give it away to babies at christenings and down and out’s in soup kitchens.

But you are correct about the compiled statement. Compiled, edited, and translated, into various different versions, then re-compiled into a definitive version which has spawned around 50 different English language versions alone.

Etc, etc…

And who created the original creator and where did he stand?

And what did he use?

One claim of creationists is that that you cannot get something from nothing yet fail to realise the same apples to their argument unless you impose magic
