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?
RR! We've been over this!

Jesus called the pharisees serpents! BECAUSE IT IS A KNOWN INSULT FROM THE TIME! You need to demonstrate that this verse is not using "serpent" as an insult - which you or any honest theologian has yet to do.

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."
You think because Hitchens said it, it must be true?

Go figure you'd quote a socialist pig like him.

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

Even with a national gun ban (even for the police), England has a higher firearm crime rate per capita than the US....

There's no such thing as God or Satan, huh?

No, because he didn't appear as a snake, because no one ever SAID he appeared as one.
Then how did the serpent speak?

And why are you ignoring your ignorant post about Revelation 12:9?

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.
Fossils, huh?

Just like that.

You say one word and ***POOF*** the Bible is disproven.

As far as Matthew 5:39.
It would depend upon if the one doing the slapping had any help and if he had a gun.
Where is any of that mentioned in Matthew? Or are you in the middle of drafting an amendment?
Weapons such as guns were not yet in place in the Bible.
So God didn't know about them yet, or did God forget to mention them?
However there have been weapons used by Gods people.
Oh I'm aware that there is plenty of violence in the Bible. It's just contradiction on top of contradiction.

So anyway, back to Galatians 5:22-23, was Paul correct in identifying the fruits of the Holy Spirit or not?

Yes, yes, yes.

We've been over this. You said there's NOWHERE in the Bible that says Satan is the serpent.

Revelation 12:9 disagrees with you.

And you quetly ignore it.

But one results in the other. Its a pity that creationists lack a function in their brain that allows them to add up facts.
Actually the fact part is missing altogether.
WTF?

Is that athitard, gun-hating logic? Because one wants to own a gun, one also wants (or will want) children to be shot dead?

You people are sickening.

Actually, since you invented god, its your job to prove it. Go on, hop to it you lazy - be a man and prove your god.

It's been since the dawn of time itself that you liars cannot produce even a morsel of proof.

Actually, the way to show everyone that you're a liar lying about god is to demand proof of god from you.

Since you can't do that, "POOF", your mental illness is revealed to us all.
