Faceless creator!?!? Are you forgetting that he waked with Adam and sat down with Abraham? Now if jesus had visited every group of people, you may have a leg to stand on, but he didn't and you don't.
I do like how you try to make me out to be the foolish one. LOL! Nice!
The church said that the Earth was the center of the Universe. Science said, "Nope! Nowhere near the center." Yet believers are wiser!
The church said that if a woman could not get pregnant, it was god's will. Science said, "Nope! We have ways around most problems." Yet believers are wiser!
And so on... Yet believers are wiser!
We would still be living in cave and dying of simply cured diseases and conditions.
No one has to try to make you out to be the foolish one.

You say this, and yet if it had rained during those three days of prayer, you'd be throwing your hat in the air along with hundreds of thousand of believers declaring that god answered their prayers by providing a miracle. Don't tell me you wouldn't.
Well yes, I would have but God knows the heart of men. He knows that our beloved Governor of Texas is vain. And God is not going to play the fiddle for an egotistical self centered individual pandering to the voters.

If you know the bible, it talks about prayer as being private and discourages those who walk around praying to draw attention to themselves. I question Rick Perryís motives.

Wow! I have talked to three of your characters today! Why the privilege?
So far, you have made several inaccurate statements and hurled silly insults, whilst I have remained calm. How does that make you feel?

Doesn't that mean that all the people praying were, "not real christians", too?
I didnít say Rick Perry wasnít Christian. I just think he was being a politician pandering to the voters. If you watch national weather Texas has been getting plenty of rain. Itís no longer in a drought.

Sometimes they do blow up spontaneously. Methane gas is a natural substance that can leak into buildings. It can even be found in fresh water wells. And you are a teacher?

MEXICO CITY (KABC)-- A gas buildup is believed to be the cause of the explosion in Mexico City last Thursday at the headquarters of the Pemex oil company.
The blast killed 37 people and injured dozens of others. It was the petroleum giant's worst disaster in more than a decade.
Attorney-General Jesus Murillo Karam said an investigation found no evidence of explosives in the blast that collapsed several lower floors of the Petroleos Mexicanos administrative building.
"We've been able to determine that the explosion was caused by an accumulation of gas in the basement of the building," he said. "This explosion, at its peak, generated an effect on the structures of the floors of the building, first pushing them up and then causing them to fall, and that was the primary cause of deaths in the building."
The methane gas was apparently ignited by a spark from an electrical fault. The source of the methane gas has not yet been identified.

This could be, I'm not sure but I doubt I would leave the whole word in all capitalize letters. One would think I would learn to read my own post before I hit post button, seeing as to how the iPhone does love to change words on me, not saying its all the iPhone but at least two thirds are iPhone word swap outs. The the word "SO" it always changes to "DO" I ask WHY! Why does it always change SO to DO? I think my iPhone is demon possessed!

<quoted text>Do you realize that if the slave died straight away, the master was punished, but if the slave suffered for a day or two, the master was not punished?

First, what god would say that it was OK to own slaves?

Second, what god cannot be more precise than, "a day or two"?

Third. why did god require that the slave suffer for a day or two?

Lastly, do you realize that many non-believers in your god, at that time, did not allow slavery?

What has basic arthritic got to do with slaves or is that genuine question about math? In that case the answer is 8 and I suggest you go back to school.
