Exodus 33:18-23 (NASB)
18 Then Moses said, "I pray You, show me Your glory!"
19 And He said, "I Myself will make all My goodness pass before you, and will proclaim the name of the LORD before you; and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show compassion on whom I will show compassion."
20 But He said, "You cannot see My face, for no man can see Me and live!"
21 Then the LORD said, "Behold, there is a place by Me, and you shall stand there on the rock;
22 and it will come about, while My glory is passing by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by.
23 "Then I will take My hand away and you shall see My back, but My face shall not be seen."
Note;
-Seeing God was a life-threatening danger.
-God used three forms of protection for the radiation;
Behind a rock
Shielded with His hand
Only allowed a partial view (back)
Exodus 34:29-35 (NASB)
29 It came about when Moses was coming down from Mount Sinai (and the two tablets of the testimony were in Moses' hand as he was coming down from the mountain), that Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because of his speaking with Him.
30 So when Aaron and all the sons of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone, and they were afraid to come near him.
31 Then Moses called to them, and Aaron and all the rulers in the congregation returned to him; and Moses spoke to them.
32 Afterward all the sons of Israel came near, and he commanded them to do everything that the LORD had spoken to him on Mount Sinai.
33 When Moses had finished speaking with them, he put a veil over his face.
34 But whenever Moses went in before the LORD to speak with Him, he would take off the veil until he came out; and whenever he came out and spoke to the sons of Israel what he had been commanded,
35 the sons of Israel would see the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses' face shone. So Moses would replace the veil over his face until he went in to speak with Him.
Note; The effect of radiation.
Please explain how a accurate description of radiation's danger, affect and protection appeared in a story about a Alien visiting humans in a fiction book written by numerous authors, distorted by time and translation occurred.

What happened to your promised gifts of the spirit? You were supposed to get, "love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control" in exchange for your faith. That promise came from the same source as the promise of eternal life in heaven. Does that concern you at all? You have thousands of hours praying, reading your bible and sitting in churches, and tens of thousands of dollars invested in that promise.

Faith is in fact gullibility, believing in something without evidence. Faith is the permission theists give to each other to support their unproven beliefs. Faith is NOT a pathway to truth, Faith IS gullibility.

Oh sorry you misunderstood after I have now written it down 5 times in 24 hours. I will repeat for the hard of thinking (that’s you, just in case you did not comprehend that either)

The babble condones genocide, child murder, child abuse, rape, slavery, terrorism, torture etc,

It seems that you are unaware of the content of the babble or like so many godbots you are particularly selective in what you want to read

Jeezuz fooking christ on a crutch, the good books lays the blame for genocide (deliberate world flood) rape (of mary to produce a son) and child murder (firstborn of Egyptians) squarely at your gods feet. Hell, a whole religion is based on his rape. Your god is described as giving the command for or condoning misogyny, abuse, slavery, terrorism and torture.

But you bring up an interesting example of transformation versus destruction. On a personal level. Yes, you shed millions a day in maintaining your relative form. You also absorb to do that.
But the really interesting example is you gave up two batches of millions of particles after absorbing others and have two separate lives, though still connected on an ethereal level, you are now responsible for.

The world needs minds that can transcend self interest and restructure human social structure. What we have now is cobbled together from pieces. Man started out as an extended family, each filling a role for the survival of all.

But those minds will not come from academia.

I was once touring an Illinois strip mine with a biologist. At one point we were parked across from the strip face, the edge of the mine operation, which left basically a cross-sectional wall 80-100 feet high. One could see the various strata starting from the top-soil on down through various layers - basically "going back thru time". I pointed to a limestone layer and said, "There's an ancient inundation. I wonder how many thousands of years ago that was laid down?"
The biologist, who also happened to be Xtian, looked at me and said, "Well, it couldn't be more than 6000 years ago."
I looked at him, at a loss for words, and drove on.
This is how religion corrupts rational thought and fact-based inquiry.

Your faith in "science" tells you so. So it has to be true.

<quoted text>Paul recites 8 beatings.
Luke records one.
I am getting tired of correcting you. Obviously your knowledge of the Bible is superficial at best.

Do you have anything from ancient history which refutes any of Paul's account?

Beaten with rods a Roman punishment at Philippi [Acts 16:23] Stoned at Lystra [Acts 14:11-19] 2 Cor. 11:33 validated in Acts 9:25. V. 32 validated in Acts 9:24. In verse 31 Paul states he is not lying and ancient documents are given the benefit of the doubt. Biblical hyper critics such as yourself assume guilt until proven innocent. You have things upside down and would not want yourself judged as harshly as you judge Paul. As you brand him a liar even when he swears he is telling the truth. By your standard of measure it is measured out to you.
Obviously Acts does not support Paul's assertion....
...except in Bizarro Apologist World.
Where is your evidence from history which refutes? Bizarre apologists world my behind. What about the half baked superficial knowledge of the Bible world which approaches Scripture with built in assumptions of guilt, pseudo history etc. That is all with zero ancient precedent for any of their modern assumptions. How many times have the moderns been proven wrong?

You're forcing your own pre-conceived construct onto the narrative again.

The author could have come to the same analogy through the experience of sitting too close too long at a camp-fire.

I know that. That's why there is nothing to debate. Faith is a guess. Debating faith based beliefs would be like debating lottery numbers before the drawing. Some pick Allah, others Shiva, some people still worship the Celtic gods, and some still believe in Zeus. You picked Jesus. Good luck.

Topix style atheism. They would even steal candy from a baby.

Insanity, letting their non-religious fervor drive them to deprive others of sharing.

The purpose of the Bible is to point the way to salvation, not to reform society.

I thought you knew.
