It is very hard to have a polite conversation with people when they have their stupidity turned up to 11.
Perhaps if RR and rp turned theirs down a bit they could actually learn something for once. At least they both very often illustrate that the claim "There is no such thing as a stupid question." is totally untrue.
Some people have been so saturated in the stickiness of religion that is impossible for them to see past the collection plate. It is sad that they will spend their lives and hard earned money to buy tickets on the golden chariot. Sadder, still, that they are teaching that crap to innocent children. The loop continues.

Here's the thing, idiot. I have repeatedly asked you point blank if the bible was authored by, dictated by or otherwise inspired by a god. You steadfastly hidden behind "it was written down by man" and "it was the words of man" without ever answered the question directly. And that's a fact, jack.
You have asked me if the bible was written by God. I have answered it was written by man, it is the words of men. I stated to Chimney that I don't believe God wrote it. If that doesn't answer your question then it is you that have the problem reading answers. I am sorry I can't draw it out for you in crayon.

Just for fun. Lets say the word sphere did exist back then(even though it didn't) How would they know, what would they have used, how could they have figured out the earth was sphere 3-5 thousand years ago. The did not have anything and could not tell is the point behind it all. It is what they knew, not about a word. Some people just don't get it even when it is handed to them.

Well, I may have missed your reply to Chimney but if you would have simply answer me directly...

For the record I don't go to church, not even on Christmas or Easter. I don't pay tithe. I don't listen to the gibberish on TV. I don't believe in the scamming touch healers. Church has been ran as a business for 100's of years. I think it is BS for people like Jim Baker to ask people for their hard earned money and at the same time have a air conditioned house for their dog. I take the bible the way I want to take it.

When you ask me a question most times I will answer in what I believe, what I think and/or my opinion. A simple yes or no is not always the only answer unless you are just sheeple that follow the crowd and do as they do without thinking for yourself.

My evidence for God is all around me. Life, the sun, the moon, the universe, the wind, the rain, etc etc. Feelings such as love, caring, sadness, hate, hurt, and evil that are all things that evolution does not need to be successful. The beauty in nature - A masterpiece cannot paint itself.

If you want to call it luck it happened or it just happened that is your choice.

A lot of what you are calling evidence is simply "I don't understand".

"I don't understand" is not evidence for God.

And it is a shame that you do not understand evolution after all of this time. Evolution does not occur by "luck".

none of that is in any way evidence of any god whatsoever, and certainly not the god that you just admitted was created by humans, thus a false idol....

What is there to not understand. Pretty much all I named we understand, at least to a point. The difference is you think it all just happens and I think God started it all.

All evolution needs for success is a livable environment and reproduction. It doesn't needs feelings such as love, happiness, hate, caring, sadness, good or evil. Actually if emotions did not exist, it would be better for evolution to just breed, mutate and reproduce.

Maybe if he posted his responses on threads you don't even go to, you would be able to see his post.

I think what you are really saying is how you feel about those things and that is only evidence of your perceptions, history, emotions, etc.

Evolution needs living organisms, environmental variability and time in order to occur. What you say it doesn't need are traits that result from evolution either directly through selection or perhaps as a byproduct.

So by your logic any book written by man/men must be fiction right? Even if they wrote from experience and or stories passed on has to be fiction. That is interesting.
