<quoted text>Nowhere in the New Testament is slavery encouraged nor condoned. You are just mad that in several places the bibles condemns homosexuality. If the Bible were to advocate such behavior you would think it was the neatest thing since sliced bread
what difference does it make what testament it was in. your god says it is Ok to own other humans. how do you justitfy that?

how can it be that you have better morals than your god? or do you condone slavery?

You may be what's known as a "Theistic Evolutionist". Those are the people who believe that the Earth is very old, that evolution happened, but that God was ultimately the driving force.

I'm agnostic myself, but I do think that Theistic Evolution is a reasonable viewpoint. Science can explain the 'how' of evolution, but not the 'why'--science only deals with naturalism and stays out of metaphysics. Some evolutionists think that the universe evolved on its own, and some think that a god made it happen--and it's really hard to find conclusive empirical evidence to support either side.

The only thing I find bizarre is the idea of Young-Earth Creationism because that goes against a ton of evidence that the universe is a lot older than 6,000 years...

Actually, he wrote a bunch of letters to his friends around the region.

I think if we brought him back to life today and told him what has happened to those letters and that they are considered the "inerrant Word of God" by a certain segment of the population, Paul would probably bust a gut laughing so hard.

The way I look at it is this:

Theistic Evolution is a combined philosophical/scientific position.

The SCIENCE part would be "Evolution is a demonstrated reality supported by multiple sciences."

The PHILOSOPHY (or religion) part would be "God created all this and has chosen to work through the process of evolution."

There's a difference between Theistic Evolution and Old Earth Creation. I will quote Mr. Ross here: "Old Earth Creationism is an umbrella term used to describe biblical creationists who deny that the universe was created within the last 6,000 to 10,000 years over the course of six consecutive 24-hour days. Rather, Old Earth Creationists believe that God created the universe and its inhabitants (including a literal Adam and Eve) over a much longer period of time than is allowed for by Young Earth Creationists."

Actually no, you do. I just explained why to CBOW. Fundies think slavery is the neatest thing in the world EVAR.
It was believers in creation who began the campaign against slavery in America.

I don't see atheists' objections recorded there. They must have wanted to keep a low profile.

Yes. Your god has limits.
He can not lie, if this is what you mean. Our Creator has all power in heaven and earth and a miracle of God can happen at once and by all accounts, it would appear to have taken a lot of time and natural process.

What would your mythical god say about you judging others and making false accusations?

are you so upset for being shown your god myth is a lie that you have to lash out at others? the rational thing to do would be to re-evaluate your cult membership and beliefs...

Plenty of average humans out there. And plenty of them believe in complete BS like psychic powers, fortune tellers, astrology, UFO's, Planet X, End of the world prophecies, conspiracy theories, homeopathic medicine, and creationism.
Sorry, but the average human does NOT always reject belief in matters just because there is no evidence. If they HAD evidence they would not need belief.

Existence, therefore God. Fantastic argument from incredulity ya got there.
Yah.

Seems legit.

ALL men can be liars, but God can not lie. Moses wasn't perfect either. Jesus was perfect and he came to set men free from bondage.
