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.

I may have posted that before.
Imagery is more universal than words.
Our sun is not nearly so bright in the area of Saturn. The reflected light of Saturn would probably be the most noticeable light in the sky.
Watch the whole thing. Some truths will jump out at you as it progresses.
That would be incorrect , you underestimate the sun.
You can see clearly how much light come that far by this picture taken by the cassini spacecraft while Saturn was in front of the sun.
It light it up pretty good.

If you look at the light side and dark side also , the light is quite strong even there from the sun.

Cherry picking atheists.
Pictures, paintings or statues are fine to have - so long as they're not worshipped.
Read it slowly, then I will explain your error.

Exodus 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

First, "Exodus 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image". Notice that it states that you shalt not MAKE.

Second, "Exodus 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down". Two separate commandments.

Now, the only thing left is the term 'graven'. Who determines if you are worshiping an image or not? Obviously the catholics bow in front of statues and pray while holding objects. What about people who pray in front of a cross? Is it a symbol? Does it replace an image of jesus?

What is the difference between you praying in front of an empty cross and a follower of baal praying in front of a golden calf? The follower of baal does not believe that the golden calf that he just made is baal anymore than you believe that the cross is jesus.

The difference is simple; you rationalize your behavior and demonize the same behavior from others.

<quoted text>Do you think GOD told us not to eat on a day of the week, to look after our children, change their clothes, feed the animals etc etc? Do you think GOD wanted a baby to scream all day because it was hungry?
Man, you really don't know GOD!
What does this say?

Exodus 20:9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Did you miss it? "But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work"

<quoted text>Of course I do, and I wear a cross around my neck continually, with the face of JESUS etched into it. I have the Last Supper hanging on my wall, and a Nativity Scene set up all year around on the mantle piece above the fireplace. 4 of my lightshades are Cherubs....among many other Spiritually enhanced treasures.
Do I Idolise these things? Do I pray to these things? No, I Pray to GOD!
Since you have no idea what jesus looked like, how do you know that it is his face etched on it?

Noticed the make bit, and haven't made any graven image..

Noticed the bow down bit? Don't bow down either.... but have written many times my Home is my Church and my Body is my Temple, and there is no religion I can call my own.

Thank you for clarifying what god meant! What would we do without you and all your various friends from so many various denominations, explaining that you know what god meant!

LOL, Blacksheep, I never liked those verses, so I didn't pay any attention to them! If I don't like them, then god never meant them.

Believe me, serah, I know how you are.

I disagree. Printmaking is an art that produces multiple copies by its very nature. Using technology to reproduce a work of art does not detract from the artistry that went into making the original. A piece's merit lies in its beauty and expressiveness, not the means by which it came to be.
Agreed.
