<quoted text>I started this by saying not to forget that Moses wrote about his own death in a post to Word. You asked who is teaching me this stuff. I told you were I learned it. Knock, knock, knock! Do you think I believe that Moses wrote the Pentateuch? No. You gotta keep up man.
I only have the one view and I further support it with the current position taken by biblical scholars who should be even more knowledgeable about the Bible than I am. How confusing can that be? Not any at all.
To make it simple for you. I taught me. I see that others more knowledgeable have made the same determination. It doesn't change my belief in God since I don't view the Bible literally and don't worship it.
Well I am glad for that, I think worship of the Bible would be contrary to the message.

However, I do not know any biblical Scholars that think Moses wrote his own obituary.

I guess an hour ago, I didn't post this response to Expert (there is a misnomer). I didn't mention a book in answer to where his question on who taught me what I know.

Now, back to school, so did he write it or not? What is your position?
COWARD...?
Name calling and disparaging remarks. You must be a fundamentalist.

You should read that book. As I said it is called the Bible. You might learn something. Who am I kidding? You know everything you want to know.

<quoted text>no, that had absolutely no logic in it whatsoever, and it certainly didn't answer the question of who i stated doesn't believe in evolution.
you seem to be running out of steam in your desperate attempt to avoid answering the question you know will take you entire world view off its blocks...
take you time...go have a smoke. you have just been given irrefutable knowledge shoeing you that everything you have previously believed in is a total and provable lie...i get it that it will take you some time to digest.
if you are the rational person you seem to think you are, you can come to no other conclusion, unless you can come up with the argument you are, as yet, unable to...why is that?
take you time, dude...world view changes are not to made easily. you have the facts. you are obviously unable to refute them. mull it over....
life is ahead of you, not dogma...embrace it....
Lets put it to your peers in a review.

Subzone, Dan, Word, Chimney do you all believe in evolution or do you accept that these theories are the best explanation you have for observed phenomena and also make the best predictions concerning what you are likely to observe based off of the evidence.

Now when they answer you can eat your words. As I said they say "a scientifically literate person would not use the phrase "believe in" regarding a scientific theory".

nope, sorry. not even once.

you flapped your gums about some belief of some god, but you never posted one single syllable about where you learned about his god you supposedly believe in.

please show me the post number where you described where you learned about his supposed god you seem to, maybe, believe in...

are you ashamed to show where this supposed god you might actually believe in came from? i can see why if it from the very same bioble you clearly stated was from the work of man...

so tell us, where did you of this supposed god you so entirely beleive in?

or you could state very clearly for the very first fucking time where, exactly, you learned about this supposed god you seem to believe in.

now it seems you don't even believe in any god since you can't even state this god's supposed origins...

are you lying about your whole world view?

just one post...just a hint...just one single word that tells us where this supposed mythical creature you base you entiore life on came from.....c'mon...it'll be fun!

not even one post.

you cannot even come up with one single word about where you learned about this god you supposedly believe in...

seems you don't believe at all... just another sheeple that repeats words you don't understand and you call that your core beliefs... man that must be an ugly, mindless life...

you are what they used to call Crusade Fodder. now they call you Jihadist fodder...

You can stick it in your butt and run around claiming you are airplane for all I care. You said you didn't know any biblical scholars that claim the Pentateuch had multiple authors over a period of centuries. I gave you a name and one book he wrote. What you do with that information is your own business. Jeez!
