And he can transform into a snake.
With vocal cords.
And this makes perfect sense to you.
Never said shapeshifter.

Never said he transformed.

Thats a funny joke.

"The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty, ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully."

So, he didn't "transform" into a snake? How was he one, then? Does he have a snake-clone or something like that?

I do believe you are hopeless.
Genesis isn't talking about a literal snake. It is Satan in the form of a snake, which is why the serpent has knowledge that God has.
Satan is called a serpent three times in the book of Revelation, 12:9, 12:15, 20:2.
You believe a lot of things, most just turn out to be nothing more than you own interpretation

Forgive me if I am wrong and we have been through this several times before but I am certain that Genesis was written sometime around 6000 years ago (according to Hebrew scholars) and Revelation was written around the time of Flavius Domitian Caesar some 4000 years LATER

So as previously I will ask was it hindsight or were those later authors blessed with the skill of time travel?

However in the babble it DOES NOT say ANYWHERE that the serpent was satan Ė NOT ANYWHERE

The Bible says serpent, not snake.
Either way, this serpent had intimate knowledge of Creation that even Adam & Eve didn't know. The serpent was Satan.
Deal with it.
Definition SERPENT - A large snake.

Your INTERPRETATION is simply your INTERPRETATION

There is no evidence, it is not written it is just what YOU believe deal with it

This quote sums up nicely what I think of revelation...

"Religion is not provided to us by revelation, it doesn't come from the heavens, it doesn't come from the beyond, it doesn't come from the divine. It's man-made. And it shows. It shows very well - that religion is created, invented, imposed by a species half a chromosome away from the chimpanzee."

Donít seem that way, you appear to want anyone and everyone to be armed

Donít seem to matter to you whether they are murderers or not.

You canít have it one way for you and another for those you donít want.

I'm not talking about England. Interesting you'd point that out though, as it would seem to undermine your point about gun control.

ugh...

Revelation 12:9

"And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him."

See that?

"that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan"

NOT ANYWHERE, huh?

Fossils disprove the bible story, so does straight up logic and reason.

The fact is that you have no proof of god and are here to sell us your religion, while being immoral and untruthful about it.
