Any city where you can go to Pizza Hut and get brown sauce and crustaceans on your pizza would be, yes?

This doesn't sound like the "Meat Eater's Pizza" I'm familiar with.

Maybe they have a different name attached - "Meat and Gravy Eater's Pizza"?

But, we do adhere to scripture ( Acts 10:34 ) God is not partial , Muslims ,Animists even Christians go to Heaven .
I believe that if there is something beyond what we call death, everything and everyone will be reabsorbed and reused including what we call consciousness/soul.
I have no claim to "know" that but it makes more sense that two 'invisible men' fighting over us. I don't think we humans are that important.

We have no Roman "records" at all.
What we have are medieval copies of Roman and Greek authors "histories" and "biographies". None of which are "Official Roman Senate records."

You are still not being clear. In fact, you seem to be masking something instead.

I looked at the paper - nope - nothing on a fallen world. Lots of things people are doing in this world, but a fallen one? Uh-uh - you are fantasizing - or under the influence of being brainwashed.

Which is it?

Knowledge and wisdom are what is spawned by a well rounded education, and that education does not have to be in a classroom setting either.

Little hummingbirds ain't little birdbrains. They are very good at calculating. From facing down cats and humans to that magnificent 3D navigation system they have. Talk about knowing exactly where they are.
They were late showing up here this year. April 19 was the day they showed up.
Haven't seen any here yet, but the returning robin has laid two of her normal 3-4 eggs in the nest on the back porch. The hummingbirds will be along shortly.

Yeah. Because the newspaper always prints the good news.

While I agree it's a failing-not fallen-world, I see the bulk of the damage and inability to progress to be caused by religion. Not just yours, but practically all of them.

You, and the many people like you, will never learn to accept that yours are not the only beliefs and that your beliefs don't work for everybody.

Look what they've done to you.

The world keeps getting better. The major thing slowing progress is religion.

Fortunately, in much of the world religious wackos like you are not allowed to commit mass atrocities anymore.

You should move to central Africa, you would love it.

We have no writings prior to 4000 BC. We don't know what pre-4000 BC people thought about anything.

Interesting that these Fundies claim in one breath that the USA is a Christian country with 97% of the population and politicians being Christians then in the next breath claim the USA is over-run by atheists.

The contradiction is a result of either stupidity or deceit. I believe it is both.
