It is a book but it is worth much more than the paper it is written on.

No it’s not, it’s worth exactly as much as you think it’s worth. To me all books are valuable, in the case of the babble it gives me the information I want on the christian religion, the good bits that christians love to promote and the bad bits that they hide and lie about.

To you, who knows? But I’m guessing you only think your personal view of what those good bits are are valuable.

If dating tends to show younger dates we hear nothing of it anymore.
We end up with the Giza pyramid build in the first millenium, given the dating on the bread making facility, for the workers.
Any references on this? I'd be interested.

Good point. Though my people have been amassing their own archeological sins in Iraq.

Or perhaps you have a great deal of difficulty with reading comprehension.

What I said was "A god". A generic use of the term therefore no capitalization would be required as it was NOT used as a proper name. Evidently, you don't understand the distinction. So blow it out your ass.

"Indeed, it would be rather juvenile to misspell God simply in order to insult theists. If such an atheist had so little respect for another person, why even waste the time writing to them in the first place, much less deliberately trying to hurt them at the same time? While that may actually be the case with some atheists who write the word 'god' with a lowercase 'g,' "
http://atheism.about.com/od/doesgodexist/a/ca...
"The use of capitalization, as for a proper noun, has persisted to disambiguate the concept of a singular God, specifically the Christian God, from pagan deities for which lower case god has continued to be applied, mirroring the use of Latin deus. Pronouns referring to God are also often capitalized and are traditionally in the masculine gender, i.e. "He", "Him", "His" etc. However, some people have referred to God in feminine terms, such as "She" and "Her". "
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_ (word)
"god-– Lowercase this when used as a prefix. Examples: godchild, goddaughter, godfather, godlike, godliness, godmother, godsend, godson, godspeed. Do not hyphenate
gods and goddesses – Capitalize God and similar names of the deity of a monotheistic religion: Allah, God, God the Father, Holy Ghost, Holy Spirit, Jehovah, Jesus Christ, the Redeemer, the Son of God, the Son of Man, Yahweh. Lowercase the personal pronouns he, him, thee, they, thou, who, whose, in references to monotheistic deities. Lowercase gods andgoddesses in references to the deities of polytheistic religions, but capitalize formal names. Lowercase god in references to false gods. He made money her god."

In the same way that the christians use of the word truth to mean conjecture and morality to mean anything christian, how they always assume a “theory” they do not understand means a guess and a guess on the nature of a god means truth.

Deliberate misunderstanding and confusion among such ill educated people is not uncommon

I believe the universe formed from the Word of God. The word may have been a very small seedlike bit and as God said things they immediately became what was commanded of them and they unfolded and branced out to become great.
