Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

<quoted text>What exactly have you contributed here except the same ridiculous line?
Jesus is dying on the cross, and Peter is down the hill comforting Mary Magdalene when he hears Jesus' faint voice, "Peter... Peter..."
"I must go and help my Savior," he said and went up the hill, only to be beaten and kicked back down by the Roman centurions guarding the cross. But soon he hears, "Peter... Peter," in even fainter tones but he cannot ignore the call. Peter limps up the hill, leans a ladder against the cross, and gets halfway up when the centurions knock over the ladder, beats him brutally, and tosses him back down the hill.
Again he hears, "Peter... Peter..." ever fainter, and again, he cannot refuse his Lord. In pain, he slowly staggers up the hill, drags himself up the ladder, and finally gets even with Christ's face. Just as the centurions are reaching for the ladder, Jesus says, "Peter... Peter... look, I can see your house from here."
I love to kick at the darkness until it bleeds light.

Or sink the knife of reality to the hilt into the belly of denial and twist it with a smirk.

You alternate between squealing like a stuck pig troll, or running like a punk sissy.

I'm in your head.

Smile.

Tacitus doesn't mention Jesus at all. He mentions Christians who he says are named after their leader 'Christus' who was crucified by Pilate.
That's like saying "the first president of United States" doesn't mention George Washington.

We had pizza last night. Buy a good quality frozen pizza at the grocery store, like I DiGiorno. Just get the plain pepperoni and then add your own ingredients to it, it's absolutely delicious.

I added chopped onions, olives, cheddar cheese, Jack cheese and olives. The whole pizza probably cost about six bucks and it was really good. You should try it.

Excellent. Nothing beats the high life.

But tell us, how many times did you hit your wife?

And how many lies did you tell?

Hey, it's easy to get a passport, although you don't need it to enter L.A. County.

You're not invited though.

Stay in the hot dusty desert.

And say hi to your racist buddy Don Sterling should he decide to slum over your way.

You didn't count how many times I had her? Dude, I sent you the video. I know you loved that part where she was on her hands and knees saying "Spank me, daddy, spank me. Oh yeah, I've been a bad girl".

I know you saw it, and I know that you wished you were the one doing the hitting....

Hey, you know what's ironic about Donald Sterling? He doesn't want his girlfriend hanging out with blacks, posting anything on Instagram with blacks or even bringing blacks to the basketball games. The funny thing is, his girlfriend is half black..... WTH?

King James VI (6th), born 06/19/1566, authorized bible that has 66 books. God sent the Holy Ghost. Jesus Christ came and fulfilled the law, and the prophets. Now we have the laws of God inside of us. If we have the law of God in us then we don't need them in a book. Going back and quoting the prophecies and going back to the law that Jesus fulfilled is the same as making Jesus worthless.
You'll be confused your whole life unless these two things sink in: 1.) The bible was never meant to be compiled. Its not Gods Word, He didn't have anything to do with the hype surrounding it. Its not the "basic instructions before leavng earth" 2.) Almost everything in the bible is true but everything but a few chapters at the end of Revelation has been fullfilled since 70 a.d. at the destruction of the temple. Which means the whole bible is Old Testament/Covenant.
We've proven the bible is the mark of the beast. Laying all that aside for a moment, even if it wasn't, the way it is being used would still damn you. The moment you believe its the word of God and that you are bound and obligated to it you are forced to trust in your own ability to obey what you read and not Christ. It brings you down into the flesh and kills you spiritually. Faith in Christ alone is what saves.
We honor the scriptures for what they are, it is those that call the bible something it isn't that dishonor them.

It is a theory. It is called a theory even by the scientists promoting the theory.
<smile>
What proof do you have of the origin of the speech gene? From what "lower" life form does it originate? Why does it not exist in any other life form aside from homo sapien on this planet?
The theory is still full of holes. You know that too.
There are no "holes" in this theory, it is known that the FoxP2 gene regulates other genes. This gene produces 116 genes associated with speech. These 116 look and act differently in humans as compared to Chimps.

The real answer lies in the Hyoid Bone, the only bone in the human body not connected to another bone. This bone sits in an upright position to work in unison with the larynx and tongue enabling speech. Chimps and other mammals also have this bone but unlike humans, sits a smidgen to low for speech. It only produces howls and screeching, the Hyoid bone enables articulation. This bone evolved about 300,000 years ago in mammals.

Correct.
Unproven, but correct in the statement.

The Bible is not all factual.
Rev 21: is nothing but a man's vision written down.
Do you believe Edgar Casey's visions? Nostradamus?
....but you will beleive "Paul", "John" and other unproven individuals.
Please post where "God" specifically states which texts are of "His" inspiration and which are not.

Not absurd. I use logic, historical facts, and apply reason to my conclusions.
You've yet to prove a vision is a fact. Will you do this, or just skate on by and disregard my request?
