My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

What? Do I need to use your magic decoder ring?
LOL!
Either your BuyBull is readable by anyone, simply by going from left to right, one word at at time?
Or your bible is 100% bunk.
Which is it?
(hint: it could be both....)
<laughing out loud, here>
you still haven't answered my question? Here i will answer one for you. You read the bible precept upon precept line upon line here a little and there a litltle. You don't read it like a novel to get understanding. You get the history reading it like a book. You would know that if you have read it.

You are a defeatist, no, it's not the same as a pessimist. You seem to believe that humans are inherently evil, inherently destructive ....

... well we are not, not anymore than any other species. When educated, the human becomes the strongest force for positive change, the species more capable of advancing, progressing, and improving. That's the reason we are where we are now, that's the reason we have the capability to "destroy the planet," so to speak. Today, this is the most peaceful time in the world as a whole, the fewest wars in all known history, the lowest crimes rates in countries that have historically had high ones, like the US for example. We are doing what we, as a species, do best, we are learning.

Oh you changed your screen name! You were on here before babbling about never taking any vaccines and refused to answer if you would take prescription medicine. And evolution was described dozens of times to you before. There is a difference between ignorance when the person just doesn't know and your kind of ignorance which is refusing to accept.

Evolution scares you because you were brainwashed by your church into thinking it was trying to disprove god and so you have to fight it.

So you were soundly humiliated on that name and had to switch it in shame.

Sorry but if you were smarter you wouldn't have to do that.

I would typically read it either a whole chapter at a time, or a whole book at a time.

I have studied the bible under college-level courses, several times through-- back when I was still more or less a believer.

I took those courses in order to strengthen my faith in god-- it had the exact opposite effect; the more I learned about the whole bible, the more I realized that the bible cannot possibly be of divine origin.

There is simply too much evil in it-- and the god it describes is nothing short of an egomaniac/monster.

Who apparently, requires DEATH before it can muster up sufficient moxy to forgive someone....

...wait, WHAT?

What sort of deity requires a MURDER in order to forgive?

A monstrous one, that's what.

Think about this: I, a lowly mortal human can easily forgive WITHOUT SOMEONE DYING.

But your god? Your bible-god CANNOT DO THAT!

Making ME superior at forgiving than the bible's god!

Wow....

.... that's a failure of epic proportions here.

Maybe you should-- you seem rather inept at understanding what the bible is all about, here.

I'm just saying:

You totally missed the REAL message of Eden, for example.

The REAL message is this: ignorance is to be cherished, knowledge is to be avoided at all costs.

Because WHAT was Adam punished for? For KNOWING.

Prior to KNOWING, he was pretty much an innocent and as ignorant as a baby.

After eating of KNOWLEDGE, he was then forbidden to be in the presenses of your ANTI-KNOWLEDGE god.

It appears your god cannot sand the competition....

... likely because Adam was better at forgiving than the bible's god...

Nope.

Not even a little bit close.

A kangaroo is NOT a placental mammal-- a cow is.

These two branches of mammals split many millions of years back along the timeline.

By the time cows came along, kangaroos were well established as well.

It's not allowed; like christianity, actual knowledge of the world is severely punished in islam.

This explains why members of each group are so ignorant and superstitions.
