What amazes me about American culture is they will look at the price of an object and pay that much. Oh, it's 25 Dollars? OK.

Nooooooooo. It's only worth 10 Dollars. In Shanghai if you put a price comparable to 25 Dollars you expect 15. You take 12. Americans don't know how to negotiate.

1 Peter 1:

17 If you address as Father the One who impartially judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves in fear during the time of your stay on earth; 18 knowing that you were not [r]redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, 19 but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ. 20 For He was foreknown before the foundation of the world, but has appeared [s]in these last times for the sake of you 21 who through Him are believers in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

22 Since you have in obedience to the truth purified your souls for a [t]sincere love of the brethren, fervently love one another from [u]the heart, 23 for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God. 24 For,

“All flesh is like grass,
And all its glory like the flower of grass.
The grass withers,
And the flower falls off,
25 But the word of the Lord endures forever.”
And this is the word which was [v]preached to you.
What a load of crap.

Nicely done! I sometimes try that in Japan. It sometimes works :)

Have you tried it in the US?

Oops! You just made Christianity a minority in America. America is less than 50% Protestant now:

"In the 1960s, two in three Americans called themselves Protestant. Now the Protestant group -- both evangelical and mainline -- has slid below the statistical waters, down to 48%, from 53% in 2007" http://m.usatoday.com/article/news/1618445...

I'll bet that you just changed your mind about Catholics, didn't you? I'll bet that they're plenty proper enough for you now. Hell, you'll take the Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons for the purpose of head counting and calling America a Christian nation, wouldn't you?

But only for that.

<quoted text>Brother, when you can understand Genesis, the first book, even as well as the atheists do, then you might have a clue about the book of Peter, or even Deuteronomy.
Read Genesis, at least once.
Trying doing it with the understanding that the Bible is right and literal.
Let me ask you this, do you even understand that the book of Peter is not a creation account while Genesis is. If you ever let the Holy Spirit lead you out of drinking and smoking, then you might grasp that MY God only requires 6 days to create the earth, man, universe and all. He is bigger than a Budweiser and Winston cigarette. Not to judge, because you are where you are, one baby step at a time.
God Bless and the peace that gives you understanding.
I find it interesting now that you and RR 'appear' to be on different sides. You appear to be the more rational of the two.

However.

If God existed, as most believers believe, then something that powerful could do virtually anything imaginable.

But.

The "creation" did not take place in 6 actual earth days or even 6 "days" of God's time line. We know scientifically that the earth was part of a much larger mass (meaning everything; not necessarily a chunk of something) which existed before the earth did (I will call it the known universe), and a piece of this known universe separated from the rest and eventually formed itself into what eventually became the earth. When the earth was first formed it was in a gaseous and/or molten form, but eventually cooled enough that the outer surface formed a crust which is part of the solid parts of the earth as we know it today.

The creation story would have us believe that the earth was created then everything else was later created for the "use' of the earth - the sun to give light, the stars and moon etc., so that we could look at them, or whatever, at night etc - they were put there for the benefit of the earth.

Yes, the Sun benefits the earth, because with no sun there would be no life on earth, but the earth is basically a product of the sun; not the sun was placed there for man's benefit.

The fact that there is life existing on the earth is due to the coincidence that the earth ended up a certain distance from the sun (which is changing over time, but not significantly enough that we can detect it in our own lifetimes) where it was possible for lifeforms that now exist on earth to exist. Fundamentalists argue that the earth was placed exactly that distance by God in order that life would occur, which is a fantasy created by man.
