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.
I see.

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.

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.
yet you believe in this god that men created?

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.

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.

Here I will throw you a bone and responded back to you since you have been trying so hard to get my attention and I have been ignoring you. It is hilarious how you say I am not in your head. But you have been going around on different threads responding to posts that I have made to others, responding to posts that others have made responding back to me. Even going on about the judgits and facing your arch nemesis for doing so. You can stop jumping up and down now like a little dog trying to get my attention. You should change your name to “Chester from Smithville”. What a tard. LMFAO

not at all, but if the bible is the word of man, then that means they created the god therein.

Well Dude, I know exactly what I believe and why, do you? I have peace and a good life full of blessings. I enjoy this Earth and have had the privilege to see it from above and below on most of the continents.

My Heavenly Father opens understanding and truth to me as I humbly observe with thanksgiving. I got to spend 20+ years in Alaska flying and working and 25 more running around underground seeing some of the greatest mineral resources on earth; and maybe have a little bigger picture than most of you hotshots here. I have worked with some class geology folks on the mining and research side. Like I said before, explain how an Axial Proton Motor jumped out of that primordial soup of yours and I may take you more seriously. Short of that I suggest you get down from that high ladder of yours and start looking up.

Yes tick it is intelligence to love and hurt to a point of killing others or yourself. It is intelligence to hate and hurt to a point of killing others or yourself. It is intelligence to hate and be evil to a point of killing others/trying to kill out a whole race.
It is intelligence to destroy what you need to survive.

Very good points there tick. LOL

they used jesus' life like a media soundbyte, but then he would have wanted that, a that was his purpose. he was no son of any god, the god you think he was the son of has been proven false.
you worship a false idol....
Don't you think we would have been a nuclear wasteland without Him?

I do..
