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.

Its each person's responsibility to worry about his or her eternity. Worry about you, don't worry about me.
As a matter of fact, tell Jesus this exact post when you stand before him in judgment. I'm sure your opinion and inferences about me, a stranger to you will make Jesus totally forgot that you died rejecting his existence and rejecting him as God.
But wait, you don't believe God exist but you're here providing asinine suppositions to someone else that calls Jesus Christ God.

God has not lied. You are displeased because you no longer can hold Christianity to the very narrow definition of a day in creation.
Sorry, I’m not bound by your interpretation. Get mad, upset or whatever you do when you are disgruntled. What matters is what I believe.
We both can agree that the earth is very old, that’s for sure.
If God knew the truth and told a different story, told a lie. It's that plain and simple. Oh wait! I get it, your "interpretation" of what constitutes a lie is different than what everybody know to be the definition. How is that not a lie?

I also believe the Genesis account of creation. That everything was created in six days.
How can I believe both?
Genesis was written to a unlearned civilization. The story of creation had to be written in the simplest forms for them to understand. The six days of creation are the six steps or six stages of creation.
It comes down to what is the proper interpretation of God’s work day? God’s work day isn’t the same as mans. It doesn’t have to be.

I see the problem here, you can’t read. I asked you how many times do I need to answer the same question 100, 200 a 1000 times.
But I will show you one post. I answered your question back on Monday June 18 post #107224.
Oh what the heck how about another. I answered your question back on Tuesday June 19th #107390.
How about Friday June 22 #107674.
Like I said you don’t want an answer. You want to harass and cyber bully.
You are a Cyber Bully and a Cyber Stalker. You have a bully mentality which isn’t a compliment by the way. You are a freaking gutless coward. A Cyber punk. You’re inept in your arguments and your annotations.
You have been harassing me since June 18th. I’m not going anywhere home boy. I’m here and I don’t run away from bullies. Not you or anyone.

English, "Christianized", translations of the OT/NT are nothing like the faithful to word to word translations with full exploratory lexicons that other translations are.

Admittedly, I'm atheist, and due to that, I've discovered that it truly is myth, but, the differences are, at times, astounding in what translators have decided to put in place of words that while it does roughly translate to an approximate meaning, it still doesn't read the same. It just doesn't. It'd be difficult to describe the differences in this venue, except to say it's like the difference between real cornbread and that other stuff.

I'm commenting from the point of view of a former Christian, that was sent to private Christian schools, and had a class every day of the school year(plus church etc...) concerning the bible/Christianity.

I use it a good bit in responses here and other places, and I mention it, I recommend it, but Bible Works, http://www.bibleworks.com/ , is a really good bible software with around 100 translations of the bible. It has just about every relevant translation conceivable.

It almost removes the need to be fluent in all of the various languages that the bible was authored in/translated to in being able to cross reference and check against the original word meanings etc...

Almost.

I was atheist before I ever acquired the software, I became tired of being told I couldn't comment about Christianity or the bible(even with my education/upbringing), unless I knew the languages etc...so, I got it. It only reinforced what I knew already, and I say to this day.

A good Christian education is the best defense against Christianity.

And this is how we're going to get you to understand biological science!

Because if you're willing to allow for a deity powerful and smart enough to have a 13 billion year plan, evolution isn't any more difficult.

Okay. To prove your point, show me ONE (1) University accredited for the teaching of geology, biology, paleontology, anthroplogy that rejects The Theory of Evolution (man evolving from apes).

Just one.

I can give you a list of 10,000 universities that DO accept the Theory of Evolution (Yes, that includes man evolving from apes)

I'd just like to add, it was Bishop Ussher and not God who decided the Earth was only 6000 years old - 4004 BC, Oct. 27th at 9 AM, later changed to 11 AM with cutting edge information.

The Bible doesn't actually list dates of Creation.

We have plenty of natural explanations. We have posted Youtube videos of other people faking it.
