.. the snake weaves its way through many myths because it sheds its skin and is reborn ..

.. in Hinduism, it's a symbol for reincarnation. Serpents are also prominent in Greek, ancient European, Nordic, African and Aborigine mythology ..

.. cross-cultural comparisons of myths reflect snake symbology ..

.. in the bible, the serpent tempts Adam & Eve and they are born again with a knowledge of good and evil, death and morality. To accept the symbology as fact is a misnomer ..

<quoted text>It hasn't clearly been shown to show anything
These points are so stupid
Belief is based on faith
Nobody claims belief is fact
Because belief isn't fact, there always exists the possibility we are wrong
However the believer goes with his heart on what he believes is correct and follow that path
What is so hard to understand?
And what revelation do you you think are explaining to someone who knows way more about the faith process than whatever you have heard and regurgitated on the Internet?
I pretty much left the faith for quite some years. Which is why your earlier attempt to claim I am so indoctrinated I could never envision someone leaving was just so ridiculous that I didn't waste my time including that bit of info in my response.
And don't scientists have different theories on how life began? Don't those individual scientists believe their theory to probably be the right one? Some think mars now even. And can't only one be right? So does that prove the method science uses is bullshit?
More pseudo intellectualism nonsense
Let me know if you have a serious point to make
My point is that a great many people, not necessarily you, make the claim that faith is a way to knowledge. The fact that faith can lead different people to contradictory conclusions says that faith is NOT a way to knowledge. It is quite likely to lead on away from the truth.

I think that it has been well demonstrated that skepticism...that is, taking a long, hard look at the subject and not accepting conclusions without demonstrative supporting facts...has been far more effective at finding truth than faith.

Why you consider faith a virtue is beyond me. Many of the people that tell you to have faith are trying to sell you a pig in a poke.

Everything ok at the gym?
I'm usually working on a big case. Or two. Or three.

So a guy goes to see a psychiatrist. The shrink shows him a Rorschacht inkblot and asks him what he sees.

"Oh, that's a penis," says the guy.

The shrink shows him another one: "I see two naked women having sex."

The shrink shows him a third inkblot: "This one is clearly a man having sex with a woman from behind."

The psychiatrist says, "Sir, I think you have an obsession with sex."

The patient replies, "You think I have an obsession with sex? You're the one showing me all these dirty pictures!!"

Please give a link to a picture of gravity and electricity. All you have ever seen is the effects of gravity and electricity just like we can see the effects of dark matter.

That proves you are a liar once again.
No problem, you are just proving your religion is a pack of lies.

But before they ate the fruit, they didn't have that knowledge.

God punishing them for doing something they didn't know was bad would be like spanking a new born for wetting his pants.
Except they were told not to eat of the tree...

THAT is the difference.

"I think that ....." - honest person

"God says ....." - Christian liar

Note the difference.
You do seem concerned with the moral absolute not to lie, you know that is a moral standard that is derived from Christianity.

As a proclaimed atheist, why do you keep making Christian moral judgements...?

<quoted text>It wasn't I that started this line of discussion, pea wit.

And I will admit that there are many, many contradictions in the Bible. Thank yo for admitting that.

But I think that going right to the start and showing it has problems from the get-go is a worthwhile point.

So why don't you tell us your favorite contradiction in the Bible?
When someone does not understand something, it is easy to place the basis for that lack of comprehension outside of oneself...

Hence your contradictory argument.

Next time you get stuck, ask the one who inspired it to explain it to you. That or continue in a determined ignorance...

<quoted text>I could absolutely advice him on many of his creations. And i won't even charge him a consultation fee. So God, listen closely:

1.) Equip humans with the same advantages you gave whales and dolphins, one hole to breath from and the other to eat. This way thousands of deaths from choking while eating will be eliminated.

2.) You started with a good idea but never finished it, our skeletal structure should continue down from the sternum to protect our vital organs, did you lose the directions numbnuts?

3.) You failed to supply us with an effective defense mechanism for all those billions of parasitic organism you thought was such a good idea to flood the earth with. Don't you care about our safety and wellbeing? Guess not!!!

4.) Whats with wiring our eyes backwards and upside down, you stoned again? Not a very good job on the joints either, they wear out much to soon, and......Why the loss of bone density as we age, are you just trying to be a prick?

5.) Knowing full well the gravitational effects on the planet, who in their right mind would create a being that is basically a huge fragile bag of liquid, a mer fall can kill us. You really don't give a shit do you? See George Carlin was right!!!

Thats all for now, you really are a complete hack at creating, why don't you try your hand at some really cool natural disasters, you know like flooding the entire planet.........Oh wait, you already did that, and just to constantly remind us what a prick you are, you supplied us with rainbows.
Instead of whining, how about thanking Him for giving you the privilege of breathing...?
