are you Adam or Eve?

just a Freudian slip?
No, not a Freudian slip. I am perfect. one of the lucky few. But sin is what caused you to be born less then perfect.

Not quite! He turned the reigns over to man. It was man that screwed up. God just cleaned up the mess.

"Sin" is a false idea.

You are an ape just like we are. You are no different. If any of us could stand to bed you, and you were not too old or too young, you could get pregnant from us. You are the same species as we are.

You are far from perfect. Your magic book does not even claim that of its believers. They are all still "sinful".

I am not saying that Jesus never existed. I am saying he was only a man.

Your Bible is full of nonsense that includes immorality of the worst sort, failed prophecies and scientific errors.

No, that's still an incompetent magician.

If he couldn't do any better "poofing", he should've left it alone.

In no way is it his creation's fault.

Here is what some pretty intelligent people say about that-----
"H. G. Wells, British writer, 1866-1946
When asked which person left the most permanent impression on history, he replied that judging a person’s greatness by historical standards:
“By this test, Jesus stands first.”
“I am a historian, I am not a believer, but I must confess as a historian that this penniless preacher from Nazareth is irrevocably the very center of history. Jesus Christ is easily the most dominant figure in all history.”
“Christ is the most unique person of history. No man can write a history of the human race without giving first and foremost place to the penniless teacher of Nazareth.”
Kenneth Scott Latourette, former President of American Historic Society
In A History of Christianity:
“It is evidence of His importance, of the effect that He has had upon history and presumably, of the baffling mystery of His being that no other life ever lived on this planet has evoked so huge a volume of literature among so many people and languages, and that, far from ebbing, the flood continues to mount.”
“As the centuries pass by, the evidence is accumulating that measured by its effect on history, Jesus is the most influential life ever lived on this planet. The influence appears to be mounting.”
“No other life lived on this planet has so widely and deeply affected mankind.”
George Bancroft, great American historian
“I find the name of Jesus Christ written on the top of every page of modern history.”"

Another thing to consider Mary is that Adam and Eve never existed; therefore there wasn't any 'Original Sin' that needed to be expiated by a human blood sacrifice. There was no need for Jesus.

I always thought the Dogma of original sin was stupid anyway. This is using the meme that one couples 'Sin' is spread to all mankind and there are places in the Bible were God says that the son does not carry the 'Sins' of the father.

So, no Adam and Eve equals no need for Jesus....at least according to St. Paul

I would think that if a Christian had proof of God they would gladly share this proof.

After all, I would gladly convert if I was shown incontrovertible proof....its only logical
I can show you but what good would it really do? You're a bright person. The answers are out there. "Seek and he shall find!"

hence the cults need to perpetuate the original sin myth....

this is how cults work..they lie to the people who souls they promise to guide.

Morality is doing what is right regardless of what you are told.
Religion is doing what you are told regardless of what is right.
**********

Donald Akenson, Professor of Irish Studies in the department of history at Queen's University has argued that, with very few exceptions, the historians of Yeshua have not followed sound historical practices. He has stated that there is an unhealthy reliance on consensus, for propositions which should otherwise be based on primary sources, or rigorous interpretation. He also holds that some of the criteria being used are faulty.

He says that the overwhelming majority of biblical scholars are employed in institutions whose roots are in religious beliefs. Because of this, he maintains that, more than any other group in present day academia, biblical historians are under immense pressure to theologize their historical work and that it is only through considerable individual heroism that many biblical historians have managed to maintain the scholarly integrity of their work.

Sir, I have 'seeked' for over 50 years. I have found nothing but lies, untruths, mythologies, misdirection, and in general, nothing at ALL that proves a God or a Jesus...nothing even close my friend.

And on top of all that, science is eating away at the foundation of ALL religions. The very foundational myths are going away to the trash heap.

Hahahahah the Arabs did? You mean Mohammed, writing (actually reciting) 600 years later, garbling the various old biblical stories well known in his time and place, is now a SOURCE of EVIDENCE that Jesus existed? He is no more a source of evidence than you are. 2000 years, 600 years, makes no difference.
You are really grasping at straws now!
What about the Assyrians and other ancient tribes that lived during Jesus time?
Like i said, there were Jewish conspiracies in collaboration with the Romans to silence Jesus stories, but like i said, the truth can never be silenced.

Yeah, isn't it funny that GOD let more than half of the old Roman, Christian Empire fall to the Muslim infidels in a few short years, turning millions of Christians into Muslims which by your belief system means they should be on their way to hell instead of heaven.
Muslims of course interpret their rapid takeover of Syria, Egypt, Palestine, Jordan, Iraq, Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Algeria, Morocco and even Spain, then Turkey, Greece, and the Balkins, as obvious evidence that GOD was on their side, not the Christians. And there are only a few Christians left in Egypt - instead of NONE - because they were tolerant of Christians, though they encourage them still to understand the truth of the Quran.
Why do you think GOD let all those millions get condemned to a religion of hell?
You mean the Balkans. Greece today, is predominantly Christian nation.
God speak to us daily using prophets to tell us the way forward, but the problem with us, is that we normally pay a deaf ears to that. What can God do in that regard?

And lastly, one of them concerning your last paragraph, is ignorance and lust for fame.
Many people had/ has been using that to gain fame or favour, but God quietly is just watching them, because their disasters are forth coming.

The ability to choose(foundation to morality) does not vary from person to person and society to society. In fact this is how all humans man\woman on planet earth is created equal so there for we can formulate a governmental law on a universal scale to protect every man/woman ability to choose with no exceptions.
<quoted text>
Yes, that biological mechanism in all human brain (innate behavior) governs the information (reality), you take in which leads to thoughts and eventually actions (moral behavior).
This is the mechanism (lead to moral behavior) nature governs NOT MAN!
Civil laws made by governments that contradict this natural law leads to chaos!
Morality is a human construct.. nothing more. Which is why it varies.
