It may have "Meade" him like other Christians, but it didn't MAKE or MADE him like other Christians, lol.

As he will tell you, LAWEST is spirit led. He has the mind of his god controlling him, which gives him the power of discernment. He knows that this is true - that his god is speaking through him - because he feels good about every law that the spirit tell him is still "in," but only those.
Which just happen to be the Laws he(they) finds easy to obey.

Same old story, same old song and dance, my friend.

Never got into cards myself. I don't understand it but if it brings you pleasure and cause no harm, I applaud you.

I like books. I collect them for various reasons.
It is like having a shelf of worlds to explore. Maybe like knowing I have a few hundred channels on cable. I may live to read them all, I may not. To me it doesn't matter.
I know how you feel.

I had an incredible personal reference library until we expatriated. I accumulated it in the eighties. It was mostly philosophy, mathematics, the sciences, the humanities, art and gardening - almost no fiction.

It also included a lot of cassettes and VHS tapes - stuff like the lectures of Joseph Campbell, Noam Chomsky, Terence McKenna, and Alan Watts.

I left it all behind - gave it to a young couple with kids. It became superfluous with the advent of the Internet. I think that they didn't want their kids on the Internet.

Books to me are people in print. My library is like a city of people. Some I will meet and like, some I will dislike, some i will fall in love with and many more that I will never get the chance to know.

That these people span the centuries I find very interesting and awesome.

Does that make some kind of sense ?

Joseph Campbell is as close to my way of thinking as anyone ever has.

I watched his lectures and just thought, "Yep, Yep, Yep."
That doesn't mean that it is correct, we could just have similar mental disorders. <smile>

The Bible was not written as a work of science nor was its purpose to describe the workings of the physical world.
I disagree.

It contains the "science" of its day. I tried to do for ancient man what science tries to do today: explain the natural world. It tried to account for the origins of earth and the heavenly bodies, the existence of separate land masses and oceans, the diversity of life, and the origins of man. It attempted to explain natural disasters like plagues and droughts, the origin of the races and languages, labor pains, and the rain. The flood myth was likely an attempt to account for seashells on mountaintops.

It's just all wrong. We have a better form of science now with real knowledge.

You show us tremendous mood swings here. One day you are amiable and relatively constant, the next, emotionally labile and abusive. And the latter seem to last for hours, not days or weeks.

I am giving you the benefit of the doubt here when I attribute that to alcohol rather than your endogenous neurochemistry.
Assumptions? Unsupported assumptions with attendant certitude are the sine qua non of religious faith. My assumptions are evidence based and amenable to change pending new evidence.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
Your assumptions are "evidence based"?! What evidence do you have that I drink beer (or any alcohol) during the day?(I gotta see this one.....)
That wasn't an assumption. It was a speculation. I didn't say that I knew that you were drunk, only that you behaved like you were. I acknowledged that it could be endogenous cycling, but gave you the benefit of the doubt that you might only be drunk.

And I didn't comment on times. I don't know what times of days you post. If your erratic posting was in the daytime, that would be evidence that you may be drunk in the daytime.

It seems a little odd that you named a specific intoxicant when I didn't. You seem to have a mental image of the activity that I didn't suggest.

Now that you mention it, where's your evidence that you don't get drunk in the daytime and the nighttime, too?

Other than some brain damage or malfunction that I could very well experience as I get older, I will not be likely to move to where you suggest I should be in my thinking until actual proved evidence of God and the biblical accounts have been fully established.
It could happen. Does dementia run in your family?

Famous atheist philosopher Antony Flew surprised the world when, three years before he died of advanced Alzheimer's disease, a book attributed to him and a Christian apologist co-author called There Is A God: How The World’s Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind (2007) was published, in which he embraced deism.

I was raised in a family where Jesus is the religious God, im from a catholic country as well. I still pray to him though im not a hard core believer who always go to church, read bible, quote verses in regular conversation, preach wherever i am and gets angry when i met someone who doesnt believe in Him.

I respect Muslims, Jehovas, Orthodox, Buddhists even Atheists. I dont care what kind of God we are following as long as that God is teaching right things. Work, dont violate moral laws, be a helpful citizen, be honest and so on.

Why i do sound like Atheist most of the time? Because i hate my co-jesus followers when they disrespect the non jesus followers. Because im in the point of my life where im starting to ask things and find answers. There are some unclear things in our religion's history that makes me doubt it. Missing proofs, blurry details.

Im not after 'being saved in judgement day'.. I dont like to escape from anything (even without god karma and law will still haunt me for any wrong doings lol) Its just that i just wanna be sure of what im following as i dont like being fooled.

So what? Has Christianity done that? Or shown that it is impossible?

Besides, demonstrating how abiogenesis occurred is not essential to demonstrating that evolution subsequently also occurred.

That's not a regular fact. It's a Christina fact. It happens to be untrue. http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/faq-speciatio... [beginning in section 5.0]

Yes it does. I believe that you even posted a link yourself to one. Scaritual mocked you for it.

Were you aware that the scientific community doesn't take advice on scientific matters from zealous Christians? You've pretty well blown your cover in that area: you have a religious agenda. The Discovery Institute put it on paper - the infamous Wedge Strategy - but couldn't prevent it from leaking out.

Therefore I now appeal to the entire German people and, above all, to my old fellow-fighters and to all the soldiers to gird themselves with a yet greater, harder spirit of resistance, until we can again-as we did before-put on the graves of the dead of this enormous struggle a wreath inscribed with the words: "And yet you were victorious."

Love to you and Honey
