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.

So you admit you are too cowardly to read http://www.evilbible.com/

This is hardly surprising, really.

<quoted text>do some research then.
Why should I?

It is not ME that needs to prove anything.

I just take the default position: PROVE IT.

Prove your wild and crazy claims are REAL.

Can you do it?

Can you prove your bible is actually of DIVINE origin?

I will bet you ONE MILLION DOLLARS that you can't....

LOL!

So you think what Imhotep posted was inspired by your evil god?
If so? Your god is evil. Period. For inspiring the sh7t that Imhotep posted.
It's 100% sh7t-- no way to spit it into not-shyt.
So I see YOU DID NOT EVEN TRY to spin that sh7t.
LOL!
I loath scripture but whenever it rears its ugly head I feel compelled (devil made me do it) to post scripture virtually unknown to the posters here.

Naturally, they remain mute and dumbfounded.
One can sense their anxiety in the reply.

They only 'know' what they have been told.
Independent study is out of the question.
Addicted to dogma, reason abandoned.

I find them unusually incurious, abnormally unintelligent, amazingly inarticulate, fantastically uncultured, extraordinarily uneducated, and apparently quite proud of this.

They’re in psychological denial, a masterpiece of banal self-delusion, completely untethered from reality.

It's not a lie it's a work of fiction. Poetic license with smatterings of historical fact. The only valid reason to study it would be for an English Literature class.

It'll get real interesting before it settles down, though.
Custom-tailored viruses will likely be on the forefront in the future-- you have a problem?
Your issue(s) are diagnosed via a direct blood/tissue sample. After analysis, a virus is fabricated with the therapeutic DNA or RNA inside-- and duplicated a few billion times. You're then injected with the non-replicating viral engine (which is why it must be duplicated externally, likely by custom-tailored bacteria engines) and slowly injected directly into your bloodstream.
I could even see encapsulation by carbon-60 atoms as being a part of the process, such that you inhale the product instead of puncturing your skin.
The future could look very nice, for medicine, once science harnesses nanoscale engineering-- likely by co-opting what evolution has already accomplished.
Imagine what a bacteria or virus would be like, if it >>were<< intelligently designed to a specific purpose?
:)
There's a lot of prospects here. Counter the mutations in the DNA to eliminate genetic disease. Drugs to target a specific cancer cell. Treatments with better results based on your genetic makeup.

This is stuff that's being researched now with some success.

But right now, we're always playing catch up to evolution.

It would be interesting if God's wrath of disease is relegated to same stature as God's wrath of lightning strikes.

Yes, but I'd not wish to be around if the papacy was simply up for the highest bidder.
Imagine the Vatican, but run with the callous disregard of say, BP or Enron?
.... wait.
Nevermind.
;)
Enron wished they had the power to make nations tremble with just a word - excommunication.(I'm not so sure about oil companies today.)

But I'd love to see what the currency is now to bid for the papacy. Days of yore, it might have been gold. Now it might be who knows where all the bodies are buried or who diddled the kids?

If the election of the Pope was divinely inspired, you'd think it would be a unanimous decision on the first vote. And in public...

<quoted text>muhammed learnt from the israelites, the ishmalites are in the bible, why do you think that they have it inbeded in them to worship just as the so called negro does? because we are spiritual people.
And what is your proof that Prophet Mohammad learned from the "Israelite"?

There were no Israelite in Makkah when he declared his mission and more than two third of Quran was revealed in Makkah period.

Only in the last 10 years of his mission he migrated to Madina, where there were Isralites present, but their relations were not cordial and in the fifth year all Jews were removed from Madina.

So how come Prophet Mohammad learnt from them?

One question, where did the big bang come from?
This is supposed to be a counter to science?

This is actually an exciting question that some people have a passion to answer. It's a puzzle to figure out. And the neat thing is, as with many scientific discoveries, it will lead to more puzzles.

But I guess having all the "answers to everything", aka, the Bible, is all you need.
Why do we die? God did it.
What are the stars? God did it.
Why did your dog run away? God did it.

Every Sunday you can get the answers to your question for a small fee - God did it.

And every Sunday, some "religious" leader is counting the donations to make a bank deposit first thing Monday morning.

Lol! Oh Muq stop it! There were Jews and Christians all over the place at that time! The Torah and gospel myths were widely published and known throughout the region.

The Quran writer stole and rewrote what he liked. Rather clumsily might I note because of his several humorous mistakes throughout the Quran.

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!!

Matthew 4:6

And said to him, "If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down. For it is written:
He will command his angels concerning you, and 'with their hands they will support you, lest you dash your foot against a stone'"

This is Satan quoting Psalms 91:11-12.

Now it's up to you to prove to me that you aren't Satan quoting scriptures for your ends.

We all have buybulls should we wish to read scripture. Your posting verse tells us that you have nothing to say, you have no input. We are not here to read any of the many contradicting holy books, we are here to put our two cents worth into the public forum. You are not a participant, until you use your own words.
