Many of the claims of the bible have been falsified by science.

One cannot convince anybody of anything without their willingness to impartially evaluate an argument and be convinced by a compelling argument - the definition of an open mind. You don't have that.

And of course, since no one can convince a man of that which he has a stake in not believing, we don't base our judgment on whether something is proven by the refusals of the people that are committed to resisting the proof.

Doesn't it make sense that we would ignore the protestations of people vested in science being wrong, especially when they are the only ones saying so?

It was hard. Last night I couldn't help but go over it again while trying to go to sleep and I recalled that she(mom) had never called the police when I disappeared that time. It was the longest I'd ever been missing.:(
I mean, SERIOUSLY? wtf?
What kind of parent doesn't call the police when their kid is missing for so long? I could have ended up permanently missing.

There are not "Billions of churches" on the planet.
http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_many_churches_a...
"An estimate I saw about a year ago was 3.7 million Christian congregations. I believe there are around 67,000 denominations. There are close to 50,000 new congregations being added each year. I don't know how many are closing each year so I don't know if its net 50000 per year or not. Not much of this growth is in the US or Europe, but in South America, Africa and Asia. Check out this link http://www.gordonconwell.edu/ockenga/globalch... ;

I did not specify 'Christian' churches, i merely said billions of churches.
how many churches do you suppose is in your home town alone?
i can open the phone book in my SMALL town and count approx 70 churches.
thats in a SMALL country area.
this planet is covered with churches.
and my point to the OTHER poster was that if the holy bible were not trustworthy there should would not be so many churches thriving as they have and do.

In my family violence is avoided.
however i was raised (long ago) that if you are attacked you should do whatever you must to defend yourself.
running from a bully never fixes the problem.
bully's bully because they know they can intimidate someone and get away with it.
teaching your child to not be afraid, to stand their ground and not allow anyone to intimidate them is how you stop a bully.
Yep- just ignore me, you reprobate.

Only a reprobate would not only falsely accuse someone of lying about what was clearly written, but only a reprobate would not admit they were wrong to make the accusation or to apologize for doing so.

What you know about ethics or integrity wouldn't even cover the head of the smallest pin in the world.

I guess that makes you a REALLY "good" Christian, huh?

Feh.

All those so called believers are nothign more than confused people, too confused to focus on their own little lifes so they divert their attention to somewhere else. Read a book aout the Christian cruisades and tell me if those folks did the right thing, spread the word of God that is or if they created nothing else but war, misery and chaos.

Excuse me, but "virtual particles" are not " something from nothing". A quantum fluctuation isn't quite what you think it is. Not that you have even the remotest clue.

Because others here, and I suspect you too, are getting tired of my long-winded posts, and because I have answered that numerous times, and I think you stated that you are familiar with the debates we have had with Yellodg/Pattiecake58, you would have seen those answers too, so I am going to state that I have given my side of the story.
Briefly though, there is no evidence ever found, that any event of the nature of that story every occurred, and the story itself as told in the Bible has many different interpretations many of which I am not very familiar with, because that story was not given a lot of thought in my background, though I had heard it many times.
To date none of the actual events in the stories of any of the Bible has been confirmed to have happened. We have that proved, on the most recent information available. That doesn't disprove the stories, or at least some of them, but none are proved.
Otherwise we are just kicking the same dead dog, or whatever the proper expression is.
don't you think it would be fair if you would do what you expect of me and others to do? You want me to say,'I' believe when addressing issues of the bible.
so would it not be equally fair for you to say,'you' don't believe what is presented out there concerning biblical truths?

I believe what i believe based on what I have read, saw, studied, and experienced in MY life.
for me that IS sufficent proof.
and since ones faith is a personal relationship they develope with God, then should I not be allowed to fully experience what it is I believe and know in my heart?

Not to mention that she is an IDIOT- one does not "learn" culture- one ATTAINS culture or ACQUIRES culture.

Of course, given how you and nano have no culture at all, I'm not surprised you don't know that, and given how WILLFULLY IGNORANT and INTELLECTUALLY LAZY you are, I'm not surprised you don't think calling someone a "creep" is name-calling, despite that it DEFINITELY is.

<quoted text>Nano's post- post #565798 on page #26928:
"Emily Post on handshaking, "...there are guidelines, but they are flexible and if someone is not aware of them, the guidelines should be overlooked and the proper response made.
For example, strictly speaking, it is a woman's place to offer her hand or not to a man, but if he should extend his hand first, she must give him hers. Technically, it is the place of a man to whom another is being introduced to offer his hand first, but the gesture is simultaneous."
I almost never offer my hand first, except in a business setting. It's my right to choose whether to offer it or not.
" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Handshake" ; ;
There are plenty of cultures and situations in which it is perfectly acceptable for a woman to choose not to offer her hand to just any man who is presented to her.
********Go learn a little culture, creep.********"
See it, NOW??????????
You owe me an apology- BIG TIME.
Let's see if you're enough of a MENSCH to do the right thing.
I suspect I'll see Godot ambling up the road (not that you have ANY clue as to that reference) long before you apologize.
i did not see the word creep.
so i apologize.

Violence more often than not begets MORE violence.
Why are you Christians such a VIOLENT bunch of people? Why do you embrace violence which goes against the teaching of your Jesus?
In other words, why do so many Christians here make it a POINT to spit on and SH*T on your Jesus?
what? what makes you think Christians are the violent ones?
first of all any bully who bullies another child with name calling and shoving and making fun of, is steming from a child who was not raised right to begin with.
Christians do not advocate violence.
i think it should be avoided at all costs.
BUT, i don't think anyone should allow another person to intimidate them and bully them. I believe we must 'ALL' stand up for ourselves and it is MOEronic to stand by and let some one beat you to death with trying to defend yourself.

Gee- I only pointed it out to you several times........okay- whatever- thanks for the apology.

In the future, perhaps you should try reading through entire posts before falsely accusing people of lying about what was written and which you would have seen had you actually read the ENTIRE post.

And until you apologize about nano's post in which she most certainly DID insult me, don't bother me again.
Now you know you are lying when you say such things.
I have said that every one has a right to choose how they will live their life.
the fact i might not agree has nothing to do with me trying to stop you from frolicking in sinful behavior.

sharing ones opinions is not restricting you from sharing your own.

I saw this on another posters profile recently.

Which reminded of a similar comment on yet another poster's profile, "How to make friends with money and a gun".

Amusing, yet I am not here to "win" friends or influence anybody like so many fools on Topix.

I do find it odd that your group is so concerned with censoring and chasing off anybody who has different opinions than yourself. Only the truly insecure feel the need to censor the opposition.

If you are going to stereotype atheists, then presumably you can do the same for religious people. So let's hear what all religious people are like and what they do.
when i listed lesbo, plh, and boots, i was not sterotyping atheists
i was sterotyping "stalkers" on topix.
