Biblically speaking, you are stretching it.They are known by their real names and are not defined by some 7th. grade dropout Baptist preacher attempting to twist the bible lies to suit his wallet's agenda.

President Obama may one day celebrate the atheist pope.

The Church of the Nativity has been a political lightning rod in recent months after UNESCO put it on the list of Endangered World Heritage Sites in June, at the request of the Palestinians and against the objections of Jerusalem and Washington.
-
Palestinians touted the recognition by the UN cultural body as an affirmation of sovereignty.
-

“It’s been a very difficult series of challenges for Christian communities in the region,” White House Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communication Ben Rhodes said Thursday on a conference call with reporters.

These challenges were “not just in the West Bank, but [also in] places like Syria, Egypt and Iraq. And recognizing the very deep and ancient Christian communities in that part of the world is a very important thing to do,” Rhodes said.
In the upheavals currently underway in the region,“we’ve underscored the need to protect the rights of minorities. The visit to the Church of the Nativity is intended to send that signal.”

none of you have shown any proof of evolution. none of you understand the bible. theres no 3 or 5 ways to understand the bible. you keep talking about things that are not even relevent to what im writing. none of you can answer my question about the bible even tho you all claim to know everything about the bible. you think, trying to sound clever with words, makes you know more and what your saying is right. none of you seem to understand english. you cant give a straight answer. you bring it down to a low level when you cant come back with any intelligent to say. i hope whoevers reading these convos will go back and read from when i wrote so they can see how foolish athiests realy are. the last thing i have to say to you all is repent. we are in the last days.... p.s dont pull out scriptures you dont understand lol

So no response, and no contradiction. We accept your capitulation.
What is the rest of that shit being posted for? Do you think we are not awake, and perfectly capable of thinking on our on? It is why we are atheist, that thinking on our own stuff, it will do it everytime.
You help is not needed, besides we are way ahead of you.

ok, I'm not from america I'm from uk, I don't follow religion its pagan, that's about the 10th time I've said that. Moab- japanese. Ishmael-arabs,indians. Japheth-persains,chinese. Ham-africans. Esau-caucasians. Israelites-negros, south americans, west indians, aboriginies,red indians. I don't have a preacher, you have to try and undermind me because you don't know what the bible is. You think its full of fairytales, that's what religion has taught you. And your right you don't go to heaven when you die, dosent say that in the bible, that's what religion teaches.

And another thing, why try and bring scriptures out to me when you will get torn down. And why bring scriptures out when you don't belive in the most high? That means you acknowledge the most high wether you think the scripture is evil or not. You say the most high dosent exist, ok, then why are you trying to prove something out of a book which you say the god of don't exist? And you don't know the bible I done proved that, so don't try and tell me about it.

Not quite.

Those animals share a common ancestor from which they all Evolved from.

Some one made a comment, there is no "proof" of evolution.
How idiotic is the comment. There is no proof forsooth.
See we have a rat , Right?
And we have a Cat, Right?
And we have a Dog. Right?
And there is No creator, Right?
So it is OBVIOUS that rat, Cat, and Dog must be evolved from each other, Right?
What OTHER proof you need? Dumbo!!
