When did you stop being an Atheist? Was it when your mamma told you about Jesus?
Santa Claus has a message for you:
Dear Children, Some day you will learn everything there is to know about Santa, and on that day I want you to remember what the adults told you about Jesus.
Your charicatures only demonstrate the shallowness of your mind.
The greatest scientists in history were not atheists, but believed in God.
I NEVER believed in Santa Claus, and my parents never lied to me.
When are you going to stop believing in the evo-fairy and pixie dust?

Not many believing Christians are willing to drink poisons or handle rattlesnakes to prove the Bible's accuracy, although some have tried. Many individuals have died because they put their trust in the Biblical injunction to pray ("And the prayer of faith shall save the sick," James 5:13-15) and, not wanting to make Asa's mistake (2 Chron. 16:12), shunned physicians.
Your motives are transparent.
You want to justify your immoral worldview and avoid all accountability, so you close your mind to the truth and place ultimate faith in the evo-fairy.

Never failed,
http://www.bethlehemstar.net/
For centuries, believers, scoffers and the curious have wondered at the Biblical account of the Star of Bethlehem. The Bible recounts unusual or even impossible astronomical events at Christ’s birth. For many doubters, the account of the Star is easily dismissed as myth. For many believers, it’s a mystery accepted on faith. But what happens if we combine current scriptural accounts, astronomical fact and a desire for truth? The Star of Bethlehem documents the search to understand how the Lord used the stars and planets to reveal His plans for Christ’s birth. Uncover the mystery for yourself.
From Producer Stephen McEveety, The Passion Of The Christ

[/QUOTE]The star of Bethlehem never happened, it is a Christian myth or more exactly a lie. They actually believe 3 kings from vastly different areas of the world got together and followed a star for thousands of miles because they knew it was a Jewish omen. Also, the star would've been in the west, not the east. A star does not stand over a certain place. The star in the east did appear on January 6, 1984 which is 3 kings day in Puerto Rico. The kings of the east and the west were at a summit close by and they visited the Messiah after seeing the article in the newspaper. It was a very large 6 pointed star in the eastern sky and they recognized it as a sign because it was popularized by Christianity.

"Inevitably, some of these visitors will turn to a park ranger and ask: "How did the Grand Canyon get formed? Why did this happen here and nowhere else?"
The honest answer is that nobody knows. One hundred and thirty-one years after John Wesley Powell first mapped the Colorado River by riding its 161 rapids in heavy wooden boats, no one can prove how the canyon was formed.
But it is not for lack of trying.
Geologists are puzzle freaks who love nothing more than collecting fragmentary clues -- clumps of gravel, fossilized shells and pollens, the dates that muddy sediments were deposited in dried-up lakes or whole mountain ranges were lifted -- and then trying desperately to figure out how the modern topography before their eyes was produced.
More.....
The modern Colorado appears to be a young river that flows out of the Rockies and hits a huge plateau, called the Kaibab Upwarp, which is 50 million to 70 million years old. Instead of being shunted away from this barrier, the river runs right through it. Moreover, when sediments from the river are examined closely, it is clear that the western end of the canyon -- where it flattens out and begins its final run to the Gulf of California -- is many millions of years younger than the eastern part of the river.
To many experts, this difference means that the Grand Canyon could have been cobbled together from ancient river basins that were created during different geologic eras. But if so, when and how were those ancient rivers formed and where did they go?
[/QUOTE]The Grand Canyon was formed over millions of years by the action of the Colorado River. If you have a simple question, you should just ask.

i just point out the obvious facts that the abrahamic cult is based on proven lies and the god they invented is proven false.

since you seem to support that bible, it would seem you worship a false idol, regardless of what you think your religion is.

Sir Isaac Newton, one of the most brilliant scientists in history, strongly believed in the authenticity of the Bible. What new scientific discoveries have been uncovered since his day that have disproven it?

First off, God doesn't endorse slavery.

When he speaks of a slave and his master, He is saying employee and employer.

You can read where they PAID wages, so it wasn't slavery.

Where there was true slavery,(jews held in Egypt), God had Moses deliver them.

The people that first had the scripture were the Jews and new Christians, then the Romans tried to take their religion away from them. The Jews and Christians had to hide the original scriptures from the "ROMANS" who wanted to keep people from learning about God. The Romans also changed the wording to Latin and added books, that to this day, the protestants and Jews do not accept. That is why Roman Catholicism is criticized by many, even today.

The original ancient Jewish scriptures of the Torrah and the dead sea scrolls, that were found in the 20th century hidden in caves, match exactly the same meaning of the Holy Bibles we study today.

Jesus said that nothing would prevail over His church and nothing has. Since day one, from Adam and Eve, people have ALWAYS worshipped the God of the Bible. This is not just some man made statue of a false god that will fade away with time, He is here to stay.

Matthew 16:18
Now I say to you that you are Peter (which means 'rock'), and upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.

Revelation 22:13

Jesus is Coming
…12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

13I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

14Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.…

Evolution (origin of the diversity of life). Geology (deep time/no flood). Genetics (human lineage). Physics/Astronomy (refutation of geocentricity). Paleontology (fossil record). I could go on, but don't you think that is enough.

Are you going to tell us that the Earth is a flat square, that is orbited by the son, stars, and other planets and dinosaurs were on the ark?

None of this changes the historical, allegorical and theological value of the Bible. However, it does seem to drive you batty.

To what "evidence" are you referring? You mean like the evidence of everything ever? Of course not. Because all the evidence we have access to is that which is on or reaches planet Earth. I simply point out, quite correctly, that not one person on the planet has been able to present any such evidence to back up the existence of invisible Jewish wizards.
