So then how come your demonic "god" allowed his alleged "word" to be corrupted like that? Was he drunk, sleeping, impregnating young virgins, where was he?

And one can only wonder how many corruptions there are.

"The highest principles for our aspirations and judgments are given to us in the Jewish-Christian religious tradition. It is a very high goal which, with our weak powers, we can reach only very inadequately, but which gives a sure foundation to our aspirations and valuations. If one were to take that goal out of its religious form and look merely at its purely human side, one might state it perhaps thus: free and responsible development of the individual, so that he may place his powers freely and gladly in the service of all mankind. "

"Another Christian concept, no less crazy: the concept of equality of souls before God. This concept furnishes the prototype of all theories of equal rights."

Really? Tell that to the evangelical Christians at Baylor University, the "largest Baptist University in the world," where the students go on mission trips, etc.
This is from the Biology Department at Baylor:

Statement on Evolution
"Evolution, a foundational principle of modern biology, is supported by overwhelming scientific evidence and is accepted by the vast majority of scientists. Because it is fundamental to the understanding of modern biology, the faculty in the Biology Department at Baylor University, Waco, TX, teach evolution throughout the biology curriculum. We are in accordance with the American Association for Advancement of Science's statement on evolution. We are a science department, so we do not teach alternative hypotheses or philosophically deduced theories that cannot be tested rigorously."
Also, here from the Baylor Geology Department:
http://www.baylor.edu/geology/index.php...
Quote:
"Question: Does the fossil record support the idea of biological change over time (biological evolution)?
Yes. The fossil record clearly indicates...
• a progression in complexity of organisms from very simple fossil forms in the oldest rocks (>3.5 billion years old) to a broad spectrum from simple to complex forms in younger rocks,
• that some organisms that were once common are now extinct, and
• that the living organisms inhabiting our world today are similar (but generally not the same) as organisms represented as fossils in young sedimentary deposits, which in turn have evolutionary ancestors represented as fossils in yet older rocks.
Mammals, for example, are prevalent today and can be traced back in the fossil record for approximately 200 million years, but are not present as mammals in the fossil record before that; however, fossil forms that have reasonably been interpreted to be associated with the evolutionary precursors to mammals are found in older rocks.
Whether biological evolution occurs has not been a matter of scientific debate for more than a century. It is considered a proven fact."
End quote
You little self centered arrogant twerp. Lots of Christians believe in evolution. They are as wrong as you.

To have the audacity, to continue to believe and repeat bronze age fables, about a fictional creation story, is pure indoctrinated ignorance, magic and poof there's an earth, and an ocean filled with sea life, land creatures, which includes humans, why not continue waving the magic staff and creating more humans, oh that's right it never happened, which is why, it cannot continue, because its just a fable, not based on actual facts or principles..Oh and lets not forget all of the free thinking intelligent human being who were persecuted by the church members and its leaders, for refusing to believe, such non-sense..

Every religion are all about joining a social club, which makes everyone else an outsider, a main source of human division and exploitation..The truth is much purer, clear and realistic, at your physical moment of birth, you were instantly a natural member of humanity, this is the truth, the way and the life of all, no outsiders, no one to recruit, everyone is included, the universe is all inclusive, this is everyones birth right, its natural and pure...Every religion has corrupted this natural and very real living truth..I dont care which religion you choose, be it islam, jewism, catholicism, protestanism,christianity, mormonism, scientology I can go on naming them, but you get the picture...WAKE UP!

Lets examine the bronze age non-sense, that has its roots in the ten commandments, that jews, christians and islamics do not follow, but love to quote, to everyone, yet they have never practiced, which is the one, that they love to quote most, ( thou shall not murder) yet this is very one, that they all love to violate the most...I call this one, common ignorance, void of sense or reason..Today the mass of followers of the religion of islam, christianity and jewism are still at war, killing one another in the name of their God, and actively promoting more hatred, ignorance and fear in the name of generational belief..

They were also teaching that the End was soon, in their life times. And that we know is what the stories and scattered manuscripts were telling...yet that was wrong. And that eventually that particular story was manipulated to mean something else...contrary to what the "scriptures" said.
There was also a great deal of dissent at the time of the "council" as to what the scriptures said and meant. The was nothing linear about what the scriptures meant...
How was the prophecy manipulated to mean something else after the fact? What else could it mean?

You know that for 1,500 years non-believers were burned at the stake. A couple of hundred years ago we put a stop to that. Now the only threat they can make burning in hell in an afterlife, and reasonable people aren’t buying it.

Very good point! We have made very good progress since the dark ages. Do you think religion can fall to a minority position within 100 years or less?

You've just went from one priest to another. In fact, Rome's Jesuit priests are the main advocates of evolution theories.

After looking around this site you are one of the most confusing posters I have seen on here. I made the mistake of clicking on some of your links in another thread and that will not happen again. I think it was this thread but I didn't read it again to verify? http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/christian... If this is the thread you lost all credibility when you said the earth sit motionless on pillars at the center of the solar system with the the galaxy revolving around earth! You provided some very funny links to fake pseudo-science websites in an attempt to prove the bible as literal truth!

I think people throughout history have shown a need to believe in something, but their beliefs will change to a more rational less childish concept of “God”.
"I have repeatedly said that in my opinion the idea of a personal God is a childlike one, but I do not share the crusading spirit of the professional atheist whose fervor is mostly due to a painful act of liberation from the fetters of religious indoctrination received in youth. I prefer an attitude of humility corresponding to the weakness of our intellectual understanding of nature and of our own being." — Albert Einstein
"The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend personal God and avoid dogma and theology. Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things natural and spiritual as a meaningful unity." — Albert Einstein

Very interesting position. I have read several of your posts and clearly you're much more intelligent than most people on here including me! LOL... I just don't see how a God would set back and watch all the thousands of Gods and religions that were created over the years! He just watches all the followers of each religion constantly fight and kill each other because their God is the best! There is a huge amount of evidence that he didn't write the bible or any other holy book so what does he do?
