It isn't about reformulated beliefs, it's about a better understanding of what the Bible says.

The claim was made that all Christians believed in the 144 hour creation event until 250 years ago.

I have since shut that down.

Did you learn something?
Yes.

But not what you think.

You Topix Atheist Creationists! are weird.

The days in Genesis are not 24 hour periods.

Let's see if you can wrap your pee-brain around that.
But some are, right?

The poof ones?

I'm no Bible scholar. I don't mind admitting that. Where does the Bible say that God created the universe? I thought Genesis was talking about the Earth.

Hi, RR, you super stupid, angry, ChristoWhiteSupremacist.
Now we have to get ready for the supremacy apologia.

Pointing out facts is neither racist nor supremist.

If we continue this game, that leaves the original question unanswered, plus a new one.
Why did you answer the way you did?
To me, it looked like a cheap shot with no footing.
You're also wrong. We don't only knock Christian beliefs.
Ok. Not only, true.

LOL
WTF is wrong with you?
You know what? Never mind.
Occasionally, after extramarital homosexual sex, I would tell the girl that I'm actually a happily married heterosexual housewife. After a puzzled look, she would say, "Shutthefuck up". Then we'd smoke another spliff and think up other sins :)

Lying is another of my favourite sins.

How is it racist? Oprah's a black woman. Black women have either black or purple privates, primarily.

How is stating a fact being racist?

Would it be equally racist to say Sharon Stone has pink holes?

Oopsie.
I think you need to do a little research.

Interesting....
You wrote "when people are presented new view points, and this is true of centuries ago as well, they will often embrace those views because they are logical".
What "new view points" did people have back in the first century?
Well, for one, that a person named the Jesus! was the "messiah" and actually the Jewish god, the Yahweh!, incarnate.

Philo, who was Jewish, didn't believe that, based upon his available writings.

Yeah if you want to call unmitigated BS good works then go ahead. Scar is full of it. Not even agnostic scholars will touch his point of view as it relates to copycat theory. Martyr was simply attempting to save lives. None can produce anything resembling Christianity before AD 150. Also ignored is the fact 1st century Jews were extreme separatists having nothing to do with pagan myths. All them were pagan idols to Jews and Christians.
