Are you a church attending Christian yourself?
Though not always. I would not do well in a fundamentalist church certainly. I have attended them and have no desire to support that thread of belief.

My theory is that __________ has repressed the truth that Christianity once had/held before the Church had butchered and edited and withheld scriptures, like for example, God has the power and will to do both Good and Evil. They done this to suppress the masses and made an organized shrade masquerading with wondrous festivals and it's own Holy Days (holidays) that are deeply rooted in Pagan worship, all the while making money from the stupid and those that don't understand. Sending them to Hell.
Then you have the Jews that have claimed the death and burial of God somewhere deep in their religious lituature.
Evolution is also false because monkeys can't make speech like me, even with thousand and millions and billions of years to try to attain what I am today. They don't have what we have. I doubt a rock from space came crashing down and hitting water with a life form that came off of it and little squiggly things mutated and became what we are today.
I hope the fuck that aliens didn't come down here and mated with apes and begot us. Though I think that origin story will become what will replace religion. Just have a bad feeling.
I believe many ages ago when the world was plentiful and lush with vase greens and gardens and satan suduced Eve to eat from the tree of knowledge of Good and Evil -- well you know the rest of the story. Or maybe you don't. Either way, story time with uncle Rick is done. My battery is dying.
Something as advanced as space travel settling for APE may be reason and it has been in the past they have been educating them for ever now, teaching them how to talk by using sign language and all sorts of other things...

In relation to blood and first of creations for them to have survived out in the wild is remarkable really if you think about it...Unlike what happened to the herds of Elephants and other species...
As many as there are in remaining to total and to believe that they found a sub specie, no husk body seems longer?

What is their Service like? You don't have to talk about it if you don't want to ...
Talking about Church can get me down and I never feel like it is shedding much light for me at all...as far as it's teachings...

The vast attendances though that churches receive must mean they are all looking for something or someone?
Mere support maybe potlucks and all included...

Survival menu as well ???

Because I keep hearing them telling me that death IS...

An Occurrence of a past or life style or to come?

If all three apply are they addressing each other then for a benefit to better or to comfort to ease pain for the dying?

No im asking why you'd rather believe in being a useless pile of dna without purpose rather than a person created by a loving God who gave you a purpose
Our beliefs do not shape reality.

What purpose did God put us here for?

What is the meaning of life?

If you can answer that one, then great. Because that's been a tough one for philosophers for thousands of years, and they're still no closer to answering it.

Only if you take the Bible literally all the way through.

But then, you DON'T. Do you? Because you don't believe the Earth is flat.

I'm just saying that if the Earth is not flat then the Bible's a lie so you can't believe in both.

Ok but if evolution is real that goes against all of genesis and if genesis is wrong then it ties into other parts of the bible and then the bible would be wrong so you simply cant have both evolution and christianity
EXACTLY the same with flat Earth.

So like I said, either the Bible is allegory, parable and metaphor. Or it's plain wrong, period.

So why do you believe the Earth is ball shaped?

The first important stream was Evangelicalism as it emerged in the revivals of the First Great Awakening and Second Great Awakening in America and the Methodism movement in England in the period 1730-1840. They in turn had been influenced by the Pietism movement in Germany. Church historian Randall Balmer explains that:
"Evangelicalism itself, I believe, is a quintessentially North American phenomenon, deriving as it did from the confluence of Pietism, Presbyterianism, and the vestiges of Puritanism. Evangelicalism picked up the peculiar characteristics from each strain – warmhearted spirituality from the Pietists (for instance), doctrinal precisionism from the Presbyterians, and individualistic introspection from the Puritans – even as the North American context itself has profoundly shaped the various manifestations of evangelicalism: fundamentalism, neo-evangelicalism, the holiness movement, Pentecostalism, the charismatic movement, and various forms of African-American and Hispanic evangelicalism.[12]
Dispensationalism[edit]

A second stream was Dispensationalism, a new interpretation of the Bible developed in the 1830s in England. Darby's ideas were disseminated by the notes and commentaries in the widely used Scofield Reference Bible, published in 1909. Dispensationalism was a millenarian theory that divided all of time into seven different stages, called "dispensations", which were seen as stages of God's revelation. At the end of each stage, according to this theory, God punished humanity for having been found wanting in God's testing. Secularism, liberalism, and immorality in the 1920s were believed to be signs that humanity had again failed God's testing. Dispensationalists believed that the world was on the verge of the last stage, where a final battle will take place at Armageddon, followed by Christ's return and 1,000 year reign.
I thought that was the time of PEACE....
So we passed the peace and couldn't ménage?

Well...

Ball-shaped Earth goes against the Bible and if the Bible is wrong then most things you believe in are wrong so you can't really have both.

So what's wrong with accepting that the Bible is wrong?

Or alternatively, what's wrong with accepting that the Bible is an allegory?

Bit it does if evolution is true then cant you see so much of the bible would be wrong and therefore creationism would be wrong
Depends on how you define Creationism.

If you define creationism simply just as a God creating the universe, there's no reason God could not have used evolution.

If you define creationism in the classical sense of Biblical literalism, then unfortunately it's been known for centuries that creationism (in that sense) is wrong on an EPIC scale.

No, facts do not matter to the Bible.

Is the Earth old? Then Goddidit. Is it young? Then Goddidit. Is it young but made to LOOK old? Then Goddidit.

Notice how facts have no bearing on Goddidit.

Goddidit no matter what.

Therefore no facts can back up the Bible.

Ever.
