Just like we can rule out the existence of Zeus, Vishnu, Neptune, etc., etc., we can rule out the existence of Yahweh, Elohim, and El.
They all have NO hard evidence for their existence
I have talked about that/ this previously in one of my post.
All those, are gods or goddesses that the Romans, Greeks, Indians, etc, worshipped through the most High God.
God is just one. Others are sub gods or goddesses.

Ask yourself that question.
You guys always brag about things you know nothing about.
Now tell me, how did the universe came into form?

<quoted text>Same god that Chaz worships, so it falls under the yawhooo name, or whatever it is...
when you think about cult fundamentalists like Chip, it is easy to see their relation to the islamic fundamentalists...
same mythical god, same whackjobs...
That is just the way they see God, but we Christians sees God in a different light.
Islam is a religion influenced by Judaism blended with Arabic culture.

Hey xxxoxxx, your new pic looks like the image of the book Masters of the Planet by Tattersall. I came across an old issue of Scientific American April 2012. Anyways the book is supposed to be about human origins. lol

You really are getting that connection whether consciously or subconsciously.
Just thought you should know.:-)

I honestly don't understand.
Did Joshua fight the Battle of Jericho because God wanted him to?
Or because Joshua thought God wanted him to?

And what was their "re-orientations"?
The New Testament?

I don't know whether or not there is a god who is all-knowing, all-loving, and all-wise,
but I think that if there is such a god,
he would realize that that comment was destructive criticism,
and disapprove for that reason.

OH YEA WHAT A KIND GOD YOU HAVE THERE.
There is a cause behind every action or a reason behind every action.
Read through the bible and see for yourself.
Don't condemn things you know nothing about.

You can say that over again, but just for a limited period of time.
I hope you understand what a mortal is?

I believe there is scripture that says God is warlike, but I can't find it right now. I'll keep looking.

Of course all of this depends on God being real..:-)

Hell is translated from the Hebrew word sheol...
She'ol (pron.:/&#712;&#643;i &#720;o&#650;l/ SHEE-ohl or /&#712;&#643;i&#72 0;&#601;l/ SHEE-&#601;l; Hebrew &#1513;&#1456;&#14 73;&#1488;&#1493;& #1465;&#1500; Š&#702;ôl), translated as "grave", "pit", or "abode of the dead", is the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible's underworld, a place of darkness to which all the dead go, both the righteous and the unrighteous, regardless of the moral choices made in life, a place of stillness and darkness cut off from God.[1]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sheol
Ecclesiastes 9:5
4For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion. 5For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. 6Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.
"but the dead no not anything"
The Hebrew concept of hell is not one of torture...but one of nothingness or death.
So,Hell is essentially just your grave.

No. You can not rule out the possibility of a first man and woman.
Why Grandparents, great grand parents then?

Dreaming. That is the reason why we have, atheism and theism.
You can not rule either out.
Can you?

Sorry charlie...Adam and Eve as written in the Bible is impossible. The 200,000 year old humans is an archaeological fact. The DNA evidence is fact. The small percentage of blood/genes of Neanderthals that all humans (except sub-Saharan Africans) carry is factual.

There is no factual evidence at all that humans were created 6,000 years ago...none. We know for a fact that 6,000 years ago there were millions of humans ALL over the earth...there is NO controversy over this fact...ALL scientists (and the science) whose work impinges on the matter agree.
