Biblical scholars. Ha ha ha!

What next? Harry Potter scholars? Disney scholars?

You can study the Disney princesses all you like, but it never becomes scholarship. Let's compare the breast sizes of the princesses of color - Jasmine, Pocahontas, Tiana, Mulan - and their white counterparts - Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, and Belle. Is there a message from Disney there? And is this scholarship just because we're studying it?

No. It's not academic. Neither is Jesusology.

Are you assuming that heaven is in space? Or that angels reside in space?
That is what was taught. Your bible teaches that there is a dome over the flat earth separating it from heaven, and that your god walks on it amidst clouds :

(Job 22:14)- "For thick clouds swirl about him, and he cannot see us. He is way up there, walking on the vault of heaven."

Your bible also reports that your god rose from the grave and ascended to heaven:

(John 3:13)- "And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven."

Assuming that Jesus was launched into space from Jerusalem about 2000 years ago, even at the speed of light, he's still stuck somewhere in the Orion arm of the Milky Way where he began, no matter what part of the galaxy was on his zenith at the time of his holy lift-off.

I wonder if this is what is meant by biblical scholarship?

Dr. Hillier. LOL. This may be your best post ever.

A woman visits her gynecologist complaining of a discharge and an itch "down there." After completing a history and pelvic exam, the physician begins charting.

"Well, what's the verdict?" asks the woman, to which her doctor replies, "I think you have acute vaginitis."

"Thanks," she continues, "but what do you think is wrong with it?"

"Seems to me that Christians worship the incredible shrinking god. I mean at one time it was supposedly capable of flinging thousands of billions of galaxies into existence with a mere thought. By the time of Noah, it was reduced to flooding an insignificant speck in the cosmos.
"By the time of Moses, its best trick was moving a tiny portion of a minor sea aside for a short while. By the time of Jesus, it has to send a delegate on its behalf who leaves behind only rumors that he was able to turn water into another beverage, or render himself extra buoyant.
"Now it counts as a miracle if a water stain grows mold that kind of looks like a bearded face which could be claimed to resemble this supposed delegate. How much more pathetic can this god get? How do Christians manage to sing praises of its glory and greatness without feeling like fools--or at best, like new parents gushing over their toddler's ability to make a pee." – Kronk
Kronk??? Never heard of him.
Is he supposed to of done or said something intelligent?

Not according to this Matt guy:

Matthew 12:37 - "For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned."

You each seem to have your own version of this religion.

Humanists have no interest in harming you or limiting your rights. Your religious right is to worship within the limits of the law. Even your own bible tells you to do it privately. That's about it.

You do not have the right to impose your religion on others.

Our proper target is the church, not the rank and file believer. We want to shrink your church and its influence on the lives of unbelievers, which won't affect you or your right to read your bible or pray.

You just cherry picked a 'favorite law' yourself. It's spelled 'hypocrite', in case you were wondering.
Are you ready to go there already? It didn't take you long to swan dive into the ad hominem gutter. OK. I suppose I can handle one more of you.

From wiki:

"Cherry picking, suppressing evidence, or the fallacy of incomplete evidence is the act of pointing to individual cases or data that seem to confirm a particular position, while ignoring a significant portion of related cases or data that may contradict that position."

Show us how I did that, you oligophrene.

Hi, I love the way you string words together and phrase sentences.
I really enjoy your posts and sit at my desk and chuckle. But that does not mean that I agree with you. I just find your posts like this "Matt guy" extremely funny. Thanks for brightening my day.

Shoot...sometimes we can't even agree on what a fruit is...like tomatoes...cucumbers...eggplan t...squash...
There are a couple of simple rules:

A vegetable is "a plant or part of a plant used as food"

A fruit is "the sweet and fleshy product of a tree or other plant that contains seed and can be eaten as food."

Thus, fruits are vegetables because they are edible portions of plants. Specifically, they are the reproductive organs of the plant - the part with seeds that you would stick into the ground to grow another plant. That would include not just things like apples and oranges, but also things like beans and nuts. And cucumbers and tomatoes. Corn kernels are fruit.

Non-fruit vegetables are the other edible parts of plants apart from the reproductive organs, such as roots (carrots), stems (celery) and leaves (lettuce).

That's where you don't understand, IMO.
Just because a person says "I BELIEVE! I BELIEVE!" does not mean that they do. God knows whether you believe or not, which is why we all - even "true believers" - MUST be judged by God before entering heaven.
That's not what you said :

"Don't assume that just because someone accepts Jesus means that Jesus has to accept them back."

You've morphed from people that accept Jesus to those that only say that they believe when they do not. We've discussed this bad habit of yours before: http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/TOCO8TE...

That's it. Call them whatever, every generation is different when it comes to such things. The time for women to be stepped on and deceived is over. Mother is about. No more clitoris excisions, no more stones, no more veils, no more men in power lying to us all to keep us quiet, to keep us controlled. Jesus loved women, he never taught anyone to treat women as inferior.
This is a nice example of the gaping divide between what "Jesus taught" and what Christians learn.

The Christians have declared a war on women. Check out this video of Jon Stewart, about halfway down in this article entitled, "Catholics Pissed At Jon Stewart For Placing A Nativity Scene In The Vicinity Of A Vagina"

That's the spirit! We don't have to show deference to that nasty religion, so why would we? It's our time now. If the church won't stand down, knock it down.

<quoted text> "Evidence" is for unbelievers like you, but the JUST live by FAITH.
There is nothing just about faith. There is nothing good at all about choosing to believe without evidence.

Here's a little of the justice of faith now:

"Attacks on Albinos Surge in Tanzania"
http://www.voanews.com/content/attacks-on-alb...

"The body parts of albinos - people who are born without skin pigmentation - are used by witchdoctors in ritual potions meant to bring power and wealth. Four such attacks took place in a 16-day period this year - three of them against children.

"Allegedly one of the armed men was actually her own husband and her left arm was cut off. She was actually in the house with two of her children. But she wasn’t killed. Five suspects were arrested and her arm recovered with the money because the limbs are being sold."

"In the same region only four days later, a group of men chopped off the arm of a 10-year-old boy as he was headed home from school.

"An especially worrying trend, Colville said, is that the mutilations are taking place while the victims are alive.

"Some people believe the magic is stronger if the victim screams when the attacks take place, and obviously if you kill a person first they don’t scream," he said. "It would explain why you get these people having limbs cut off while they are still alive."

These people live by faith.
