hahaha, no kidding. You're quite clearly correct. It's just that if you already have a religion, then add onto it, you get this logical formula:
1 Christianity
2 Mormonism = Christianity + extra religion
1 Stupid
2 Stupid + extra stupid
Therefore, Mormonism is objectively more stupid than Christianity.

I think it's correct enough to say, that all religions included
in the Abrahamic faiths have progressively evolved over time with offshoots springing out of them and growing into their own flavor's and brands. Even the originals changed and adapted from the earlier flavors and changed to stay afloat.
So it can be truly said that religion is a progressive kind of stupid.
Brilliant. I might reconsider the lameness of batman.

Yeah maybe, but prolly because we almost hunted the bison and turkeys into extinction. That's why we try to conserve and protect them from ourselves. I read that when the English first came to America right on up till George Washington's day there were two distinctive flocks of turkeys, that numbered in the millions.
You probably could have just thrown a brick into a flock like that and clobbered one for dinner. lol

On another note there's one place left on Earth where Elephants roam free , but they're in danger from human encroachment and poachers who kill them for ivory. It's sad but conservation is the only way to save Earths most precious commodity.
Here it is if you are interested in that sort of thing, it shows Elephants and Africa like we have never seen before.

Uhm, do you actually believe that Noah lived to be more than 600? Do you actually believe that Noah built an ark? That he existed?
Actually, I don't. We Aussies call a shark a "Noah's Ark".

Even when trying to solve the mystery by using the tools they used, most resort to modern tools because the amount of time involved
to produce the film wont allow them finish using ancient methods.

I'm pretty sure the turkeys in Oz are protected by law. It's 'cause they're rare. And huge! Much bigger than the American ones.

Let's see...archaeologists also examined the quarries where the limestone comes from. The tools the Egyptians used are known. It's a simple matter to recreate that - i.e., by hiring some real stone masons and quarrying some limestone. Modern stone masons won't be as skilled as Egyptian ones would have been using those tools, but you get estimates.

Also, the records of when the pyramids were built - i.e., which rule commissioned them, in who's rule they were finished (always the same ruler...so you have a maximum timespan).

The bottom line is that you don't have the faintest clue what the archaeologists are doing and you criticize them based on your lack of information. You'd be better served by trying to figure out what methodologies they employed than simply declaring, with no evidence or argument, "they can't do it because I can't imagine it!"

Lying is OK within certain limits, and properly defining and remaining within those limits is what keeps it moral. I would think that a curious and reasonable guy like you would know that already.

That's your bible and church speaking through you, which purpose is to demonize whatever isn't supportive of it.

Moral secularists? Then you don't believe your own posting. Aren't you lying right now?
RiversideHick wrote:

Not very well.

Teaching occurs by example, not by words. When the words and the example are congruous, the words fortify the example. When the words and the example are opposite, the example includes hypocrisy, which is then taught as well.

Faith is based on a lie to the self which is then spread to others. And that faith is sustained by continued lying to the self - the confirmation bias that rejects contradictory evidence, and which causes people to claim such things as that vague references to underwater springs are a supernatural foretelling of hydrothermic vents by a deity.

I don't know for sure as have never hunted but you're probably right, haven't found out yet but found this, it's pretty interesting. They're amusing birds, I wouldn't kill or imprison the two that hang around in manner of pets.
