God has free will. Free will is involved when someone regrets something they have done and they repent and the LORD regretted something in Genesis 6;6.
You do not do something you know in advance you are going to regret doing, unless you lack the freedom to stop yourself from doing it.

So God must be unable to see the future, or unable to alter course even knowing what the future will bring. That means, lacking free will.

Simply - the God you imagine as being your Biblical, omnipotent, omniscient being who yet can regret actions that he knew in advance we was going to regret etc.....simply does not stack up to any logic.

This does not disprove God, but it certainly disproves any literal rendering of the Bible. By being capable of regret, your Biblical God obviously is one that cannot see into the future.

The tomb was guarded to prevent the faking of the rising from the dead prophesy of the messiah.
Yet the tomb was empty, the very thing they had wanted to avoid happened right under the noses of armed guards.
Odds are the disciples got scared and stole the body too soon.

They made a prophesy that Jesus himself made not come true.

I was thinking Tuesday. Then if I do a proper 3 day gig, unlike Jesus who only did a day and a half, I can swoop up all of the Pastafarians who already celebrate on Friday.

In the Biblical sense Adam and Eve did not exist. The story of men and women living on this earth far transcends the petty story found in the Bible. Adam and Eve were not the beginning of the human race; they are nothing more than a footnote in a fictive mythological story written by some of our ancestors. The story of humans goes back many hundreds of thousands of years and is spread over the whole earth. We did not come from two progenitors 6000+- years ago. Our footprints, handprints, tools, habitats, art, and handiwork have been found all over the globe going back a hundred thousand, two hundred thousand, and many more years.

We humans have a history that is told in archaeological artifacts and human bones and pottery and stunning artwork on cave walls. We find finely crafted spearheads in animals that have not walked the earth for over 10,000 years, we find Homo sapiens skeletons superimposed with Neanderthal bones in Israeli caves from 50,000 years ago, we find 10,000 year old graveyards in the middle of the Sahara desert…relics from a time when the Sahara was green and home to ancient animals and human societies.

We humans also have sciences now that can read the ancient stories entwined in our blood. The stories that are told there….are not the stories of the Bible. We did not spread out all over the earth from “East of Eden” 6000 years ago. By that time humans were everywhere; in China and Southeast Asia, in Australia and Borneo, in North and South America, all of Europe, and many of the smaller ocean islands.

There is archaeological evidence of “us” all over the place and in time periods going back hundreds of thousands of years. The evidence is overwhelming, there are no doubts anymore. Adam and Eve as a Biblical truth…is not the truth.

Christianity, as well as Judaism and Islam, and all the other religions are relics of a time when we humans were making up gods…when we thought we needed them…when we had no way of ascertaining what was real in our world and what was myth. Some of us still look and hope to find a higher being that they can lay their troubles on, someone who can make them happier and richer and healthier, while forgetting to look inside themselves and finding their own will.

Not only that, check out this verse: Matthew 12 40:

For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

yeah....hate to tell you this. i may have, er...overextended myself on the future worth of that tissue if you are dead, so , ahh....that ' guy i know' might just make it a twofer on tuesday whether we like it or not...

either way, might want to get crackin' on those miracles...

i thought, being the messiah and all you could just knock off my bookies 'associate' but it seems the whole preordained destiny clause is pretty tough to get out of. we'd have to deal with the unions on that one, and pal, you may be the messiah, but there are some things even YOU ain't gonna move...

Hey! I may be the messiah but I don't mess with unions.

Geez, what were you thinking? We don't even know where Jimmy Hoffa is.
