I have shown both with the Bible itself and the history of the Church leaders that you are wrong and that the arguement against "original sin" has existed within Christianity for 1500 years.
You have neither shown that the concept of original sin nor that the phrase original sin is Biblical. All you have done is demand I agree with you or I am going to Hell.
Please stick your scary chick on a stick up your ass.
May you see God's face soon.

I grew up in South America where those practices were routine.
My maternal grandfather (to me, a hero) was a practical joker. After two gas station attendants finished on his car, he would hand one of them a 50 peso bill and tell him to share it with the second guy. Then he would go to the second guy and tell him to make sure his buddy split that 100 with him.
He would then drive off, chuckling.
I thought he was the coolest person in the world.
He died 30 years ago. I still think he was the coolest person in the world.

I suggest you actually read what I wrote, or more importantly, read what Ulansey and Beck wrote: The Mytharic mysteries arose at roughly the same time as Christianity and dating Roman Mithraism based on the Persian Zoroastrianism is like dating Christianity based on Judaism.

The Mithraic Mysteries or Mysteries of Mithras (also Mithraism) was a mystery religion which became popular among the military in the Roman Empire, from the 1st to 4th centuries AD. Information on the cult is based mainly on interpretations of monuments.

The earliest Mithraic monument showing Mithras slaying the bull is thought to be CIMRM 593. This is a depiction of Mithras killing the bull, found in Rome. There is no date, but the inscription tells us that it was dedicated by a certain Alcimus, steward of T. Claudius Livianus. Vermaseren and Gordon believe that this Livianus is a certain Livianus who was commander of the Praetorian guard in 101 AD, which would give an earliest date of 98-99 AD.

An altar or block from near SS. Pietro e Marcellino on the Esquiline in Rome was inscribed with a bilingual inscription by an Imperial freedman named T. Flavius Hyginus, probably between 80-100 AD. It is dedicated to Sol Invictus Mithras.

CIMRM 2268 is a broken base or altar from Novae/Steklen in Moesia Inferior, dated 100 AD, showing Cautes and Cautopates.

Other early archaeology includes the Greek inscription from Venosia by Sagaris actor probably from 100–150 AD; the Sidon cippus dedicated by Theodotus priest of Mithras to Asclepius, 140-141 AD; and the earliest military inscription, by C. Sacidius Barbarus, centurion of XV Apollinaris, from the bank of the Danube at Carnuntum, probably before 114 AD.

The last is the earliest archaeological evidence outside Rome for the Roman worship of Mithras, a record of Roman soldiers who came from the military garrison at Carnuntum

The earliest dateable Mithraeum outside Rome dates from 148 AD. The Mithraeum at Caesarea Maritima is the only one in Palestine and the date is inferred.

Although it is clear that grey areas exist, and the dating is also vague, what remains for certain is that this movement existed (will you assert that it did not) and also bore certain similarities to some of your dogma.

“If Christianity had been checked in its growth by some deadly disease, the world would have become Mithraic.”
Joseph Renan

There are a number of key crossroads in human history, where if the right path had been selected, humanity would have been spared endless horrors and found itself far further advanced along its evolutionary path.

One such crossroads was Christianity versus Mithraism. We might now be living in a new Garden of Eden if we had chosen correctly, but humanity made the wrong selection, as it always does.

The story of how Christianity triumphed over Mithraism is a scandalous one. It was accomplished by a flagrant act of theft, a vast cover-up and an ongoing deception about the true nature of Christianity.

The man at the centre of the crime was the true founder of Christianity: St Paul.

Also, considering that 99% of the Antarctic ice is sitting on a continent the size of the USA, how do you propose to push all that ice into the ocean at once ?
I don't. If just the western shelf were to collapse, the sea level would rise by 12 feet. Once this happens, the glaciers that the shelf holds back and slows would rapidly increase in speed toward the ocean. The ice sheets are "balancing" on a body of inland water nearly 8000 square miles. If a collapse compromises that body, there would be a major disaster in the making for oceans and earth climate.
It could raise sea levels 175 feet if the locked glaciers are released.

That is when it arrived in Rome.
Mithraism is a sect of Zoroastrianism. One could argue that just as a Jewish cult was being paganized in Rome, a Zoroastrian cult was being paganized in Rome.

Nether of which are anything like the original cults in Judea and Persia.

You may copy and paste from Wiki without citation all you want, if you think that makes you look informed:

Unfortunately for you, I've already established that you aren't.

Now go back and find quality sources of the level of Cumont, Beck, or Ulansey to counter what I posted rather than swiping from Wiki whining about Paul.

Even given that scenario, it would take thousand if not tens of thousands of years for the entire glacial mass to creep into the ocean.
We have the evidence from the last ice age and it doesn't work like you propose. There will be no tidal wave and the ocean level will rise by inches per year.
