Sorry. my friend.
The "I know God" crap doesn't work with real believers.
No it doesn't work with REAL believers, but that does not apply to YOU, you don't even believe Godf's Word, so what makes you a "real believer"?

Yes, I've heard that's the latest fashionable fad amongst skeptic circles.
However, they are quote different and Genesis was written first.
Here are some major dissimilarities:
EE records "successive generations of gods and goddesses" who are subject to typical weaknesses such as hunger, thirst, and sex drive; Genesis records but one God, though He had company of unspecified nature (Gen. 1:26), with no such weaknesses.
The EE is a creation account to some extent, but most of it is devoted to describing a battle between the god Marduk (the "creator" as such) and Tiamat the goddess (who ends up being the raw material of creation), and to other non-creation issues, so that after tally, only about a third of it is on the subject of creation.
EE played a political and cultic role in the Babylonian religion and explained Marduk's rise to chief god of Babylon; Genesis does not mention Israel, Jerusalem, or the Temple, and served no cultic function [Sarna, Understanding Genesis, 9; I would suggest that this points to the Genesis account being more original].
Show verifiable and concrete evidence that the Hebrew text of Genesis was composed before the Sumerian text Enuma Elish?

If you're not satisfied with the creation stories in the Enuma Elish then there are many other Sumerian texts to choose from.
ALL of them composed prior to the Genesis of the bible.

I agree with what you're implying, that most of the people in BC were pretty ignorant.
That's why I do believe that the bible is inspired by the hand of God.
What other explanation is there?
Aliens. Ya, that's it, aliens.
LOL

You have JUST hit the nail squarely on the head.
See?
I knew you could do it!

For a start, I don't spell God with an f. LOL

Second, I don;t have to pretend to be or know something I clearly do not.

You are ashamed of your ignorance and think you can hide behind God.

Sorry. It doesn't work that way. All you prove is that you know nothing of reality (which IS God)

It aint necessarily so wrote:
<quoted text>
That's fine. I'm not looking for anything from the believer, so I don't need to behave solicitously. The ridicule is not for their benefit.
We've both been at this long enough to know that the Christians are not really interested in dialectic, and there is no future in reasoning with them or in trying to keep them happy.
<quoted text>
The ridicule that I am advocating is of ideas and institutions, not persons. If people choose to take it personally, they are free to do that.
<quoted text>
Ridicule is most definitely NOT the game that they want to play.
[1] "If religion contained any truth, it could be ridiculed, insulted, even defiled, without being diminished in any way. Its truth would shine through: undimmed, unblemished, shaming those who abused it into silence. But thatís not how things are. Religion is prickly. Itís intolerant. Itís ultra-defensive precisely because itís brittle and fragile. Itís about as substantial as a meringue. Itís all froth and no substance. Itís had thousands of years to make its case and all itís produced is sophistry, violence and a raft of morals that would shame a rattlesnake." - Pat Condell
[2]ďRidicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. Ideas must be distinct before reason can act upon them; and no man ever had a distinct idea of the trinity. It is the mere Abracadabra of the mountebanks calling themselves the priests of Jesus." -Thomas Jefferson
[3] "I think religion should be treated with ridicule, hatred and contempt, and I claim that right." Ė Christopher Hitchens
Can't find fault with anything you say, except the bottom line seems to be trying to keep the personal attacks going both ways to a minimum so that perhaps we can get some intelligent responses from people rather than defensiveness.

Agree 100% with you that if the claim of a God is true, then any ridicule from us should not affect the believers and God is quite capable (assuming He is what they think) of looking after Himself, and nothing we do would ever change that. People getting defensive on the believers side is strictly them thinking they are being attacked for being believers.

Believers, IMO, only deserve to be attacked when they are promoting things that go against humans, which seems to be what many of them do on this site.

However, both sides can still deal with personal attacks by downplaying the personal attacks and sticking to what we actually think about whatever the topic is about.

We have some posters here, regrettably, who do nothing but attack others, and I think that is their only purpose for coming here.

No sir, the only thing that you can TRULY remark that it is yourself who do not know anything, don't speak for others, because I can back anything that I believe and have said with scripture, and the f in God in my previous post was a typo, ever heard of one before, I am sure that you have made them before as we all have.

Just to add..........do you realize how truly foolish you look calling someone else "ignorant" when you like many unbelievers have posted the atheistic junk that you have on topix over the years?

Being school to certain historical knowledge does not equate to Godly knowledge that comes from the only only, and in your own way you are just as 'ignorant' as those who openly admit that they do not believe at all.

Again your lack of any understanding is made manifest with this post, you have no desire to change or even cognizant of the fact that you need to, and so you take the testimony of a believer and accuse him of having homosexual tendencies that he is trying to suppress, I don't have any reason NOT to believe him, your wicked nature merely allows you not to, and the ability to "grasp" is a handicap that you suffer from.

Also a gay man or woman, believe it or not, do not have to be engage in a direct homosexual relationship for that spirit to be within them, it works counter productively to the spirit of God like all sin, but as I said before.........one can be delivered from it if they truly desire, but again this post to you may be a waste of time as per your inability to 'grasp'.

That is why I put LOL at the end.

Sense of humor, my friend, it is one of the finest gifts from God.

What Scripture ? The one Constantine compiled or King James ?

Why do you believe in Emperors and Kings ?

God is so much greater...and needs no words at all.

IU sorry Ash, but given what he has posted over time, I have a really good idea of what he believes, and it's not the Word, at least not in it's fullness and that is counter productive to true belief and faith.

I know that the two of you have some kind of friendship going, but I still have to call it as it is presented.

The label doesn't matter that much. What matters, is that you seem to believe that the human race started with two people named Adam and Eve.
Yes, I do.
A lot of Christians no longer believe that, because it's ridiculous.
Who are these "lots of Christians"?
Do you believe the Flood Myth too?
No, I believe the Great Flood happened, there's no myth. That's a skeptic fad.

If you truly understood that, then you would believe in ALL of God's Word, including that which the spirit came through those Apostles that you do not like.

No and no.
But your bible is nothing like neuroscience. Your bible is just a collection of vague, erroneous and self-contradictory claims. Studying it generates no useful knowledge.
That opinion right there is why you get it wrong, IANS.

You read the bible as if it's "just a collection of vague, erroneous and self-contradictory claims". You too possess an extreme confirmation bias.

Thanks for playing.

So what. You are a gay in denial.

You also are ignorant, that is easy to fix but you choose to remain so.

You have nothing worthwhile, my friend.
