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.z

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.
I told you how your meant to read it? And you just said you read it whole chapter at a time or full book? You don't read it like that I told you that. You don't understand it your college you went to obviously didn't teach you right they made you hate the good book? Now are you goin to answer my question I asked you yesterday? Or you just gena tel me how gods evil because he wants his people to walk rightously? Oh yh p.s only a few will understand tells you that in scripture you are not apart of that few :)

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...
you don't understand that one bit? Why would I listen to a athiest who dosent know how to read the bible can't answer a simple question about the begining of the book and hates the creator? Come on and he wasn't ignorant like a baby at all. Suppose you think it took 6 days to create right?

Any possible way you could repeat that in English? Seriously your grammar is so atrocious it's almost painful to translate.

The reason you can't see it is because it is hidden in proper grammar.

So you are ignoring 100% of the evidence just because it opposes your non-answer.

I remember you now. You babbled with this atrocious grammar and spelling before. You had some crazy name. I guess you were humiliated so badly you needed a mulligan on your screen name.

Sharks around Australia are currently in an aggressive state of evolution that is clearly observable.

Like we don't know that any atheist they claim as friends are really just their ex-brother-in-laws who will not go to church with them even on Easter(better things to do) and plenty of drink to imbibe, but come even a little molehill in their lives and they are on their knees wailing with the rest of the fambly.
If these friends were truly atheist, their cars would be keyed, no end.

Quite intelligent people who do Not go to church but often turn out to be agnostics, as atheism takes a bit too much faith.
Doubt if either political party will suffer an atheist as a serious candidate for President of the US. Obama,Biden, Clinton all reject magic atheism.
