That is one thing about my military training I love. They teach us how to get into some one’s head so bad that they think about us all the time. They think about what we have said. They talk about us even when we are not around. They talk about us when we are not around. They talk about us to others still wondering what the hell. They think about us when the littlest thing reminds them of us (this forum for example). They constantly try to make us look bad to satisfy their own mind of why we live in their mind. They think about us so much that they even try to converse with us looking for closure and when we ignore them they think about us even more. That is you and me DipShytDan. Keep on proving me wrong with your rants. It is here for all to see. LMFAO

You really don't seem to be able to research very well...do you??

"The asherim were also cult objects related to the worship of the fertility goddess Asherah, the consort of either Ba'al or, as inscriptions from Kuntillet ‘Ajrud and Khirbet el-Qom attest, Yahweh,[3] and thus objects of contention among competing cults.

Though there was certainly a movement against goddess-worship at the Jerusalem Temple in the time of king Josiah, it did not long survive his reign, as the following four kings "did what was evil in the eyes of Yahweh" (2 Kings 23:32, 37; 24:9, 19). Further exhortations came from Jeremiah. The traditional interpretation of the Biblical text is that the Israelites imported pagan elements such as the Asherah poles from the surrounding Canaanites; the modern scholarly interpretations suggests instead that the Israelite folk religion was always polytheistic, and it was the prophets and priests who denounced the Asherah poles who were the innovators.

For example, King Manasseh placed an Asherah pole in the Holy Temple (2 Kings 21:7). King Josiah'sreforms in the late 7th century BC included the destruction of many Asherah poles (2 Kings 23).

Exodus 34:13 states: "Break down their altars, smash their sacred stones and cut down their Asherah poles."

*****

- Amulets, figurines, inscriptions and ancient texts, including the Bible, reveal Asherah's once prominent standing.

God had a wife, Asherah, whom the Book of Kings suggests was worshiped alongside Yahweh in his temple in Israel, according to an Oxford scholar.

In 1967, Raphael Patai was the first historian to mention that the ancient Israelites worshiped both Yahweh and Asherah. The theory has gained new prominence due to the research of Francesca Stavrakopoulou, who began her work at Oxford and is now a senior lecturer in the department of Theology and Religion at the University of Exeter.

Hilarious. I like how you are about to piss yourself trying to transfer your obsession onto me.

Hilarioius. Freakin' hilarious.

It's unbelievable that this thread was even created. Evolution was proven before anyone alive today was born. Creationism isn't science and no child anywhere on earth should be brainwashed to believe such bullshit. If you've been indoctrinated into an evolution denying religious cult then then seek help.

Yes, these people that speak their own mind clearly are intimidated by you just like I am. They are clearly worried that you are reading their posts on threads you never go to or maybe worried that you will start following them around like a puppy.

A belief in many gods seemed to be the order of the day back then.
In the earlier days of the Hebrews they believed that god had a wife named Asherah. Later when things were rewritten they got rid of her and made god a bachelor. Look up Asherah poles and figures.
Gods were invented to explain the inexplicable.
Some men still need one to explain something, some men don't.

Wiki is actually a very reliable source. Independent tests have shown it to be as accurate as the Encyclopedia Britannica. Also, if you actually read the articles you will always find references that you can check for yourself to see if the article is correct or not.

Unlike the sources that you list. At best they only refer to other creatard sources and never to any peer reviewed science.

Peer review is the Gold Standard for science. And I am talking real peer review, not the fake "peer review" that certain creatard sites are trying to claim. It is an open process where new ideas are checked out by experts in the field. If they find an error they not only point out the error, but also why it is an error. If this was a biased process it would be very easy to show. But no creation "scientists" have been able to demonstrate any bias in peer review, even though they cannot get an article published to save their life.

And who knows, after many years of thought idiots like bohart may eventually find the truth, but I doubt it. In the meantime it is enjoyable to point out their idiocy to them.
It seems that quite a few Christian creatards are masochists by nature.
Oh Lord! I thought the Sucking bone was simply stricken with a condescending attitude borne in the bile of stupidity. No. This homicidally stupid idiot thinks he has the knowledge to improve the lives of those he converses with, Oh! he can help them!... debate is no where near the descriptive term, he hasn't the where with all to actually debate.

Yes blowfart, even an idiot as big as you can learn the truth if you only open your eyes.

Now idiot, did I ever claim to have the key of life? I don't think so.

Of course your reading comprehension is exceedingly poor. That is probably only one of the reasons that you are one of the biggest idiots here.

Do you want to learn or do you simply want to try to insult me? You know that we all laugh at you. Your idiocy is monumental. Truly. You cannot understand the simplest of facts about the theory of evolution. No wonder that you always fail when you try to debunk it.

Did you know that if you actually learned what the theory of evolution says that you might be able to argue against it? So far all you have posted is obvious idiocy.

Okay I watched it and I changed my mind a bit. I particularly liked the part of the video that had the Earth/Moon collision.

Okay, your turn now. I made a comment that you seemed to miss.

Who is Bob Robertson?
