You should have written "you're". It's a whole different word.
And I don't need to prove the non-existence of any deity - I comfortably await proof of your assertion that there is at least one.
In the meantime, I see no reason for one.
Also, in English, the first letter of the first word of a sentence is capitalized. These pew warmers spend way too much time in church instead of the class room.

I guess I can understand that, they aren't good at anything so all they have is telling people about Jesus. Only problem with that is they don't know that Jesus is a myth. Invented tens of thousands of years ago and reinvented every 500 years or so.

Yes. You know that. I just wanted you to make the change from "religious people" to "certain religious people".

Otherwise you sound very bigoted.

OOPS!

If you must accept Jesus as your Savior in order to be saved (John
14:6), what about the billions of beings that die as fetuses, infants,
and mentally deficient, etc.? For them to accept Jesus would be
impossible. So they are condemned to hell because of conditions over
which they had no control. Deut. 32:4 says God is just, but where is
the justice?

I never compared God to an emotion.
I said that proving that He exists is just as difficult as proving an emotion.
If you doubt me, prove that you love anything.
Go.
That is comparing your god to an emotion.

It's a false comparison.

Love is demonstrable.

Your god isn't.

Besides... I never claimed the ability to prove that I love something.

Why are you asking me to?

Diversion... that's why.

John 6:53.
You have asked if the Bible supports cannabalism in any form and the answer, succinctly stated, is yes. The following enumeration covers virtually every relevant biblical comment and shows the key verses fall into two broad categories: those in which God or Jesus commands or condones cannabalistic activity and those which merely relate activities of this nature. One can justifiably accuse the Bible of advocating cannabalism in light of the former but not the latter. Merely relating instances of cannabalism, rape, incest, or other atrocious behavior doesn't mean such activities are being fostered or proposed. Among the former are such verses as:

"And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat" (Lev. 26:29) and
"I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend...." (Jer. 19:9) and
"I will make your oppressors eat their own flesh, and they shall be drunk with their own blood as with wine" (Isa. 49:26 RSV) and
"Therefore fathers shall eat their sons in the midst of you, and sons shall eat their fathers...." (Ezek. 5:10).

In addition, there are statements by Jesus which some Christians have chosen to spiritualize, while other interpret them literally:

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye shall have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day" (John 6:53-54) and
"as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it and broke it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood...." (Matt. 26:26-28, Luke 22:19-20, Mark 14:22-24, 1 Cor. 11:24-26) and
"He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me and I in him.... So he that eateth me, even he shall live by me" (John 6:56-57).

Then, of course, there are verses which merely relate or predict cannabalistic activity:

"So we boiled my son, and ate him. And on the next day I said to her,`Give your son, that we may eat him.' but she has hidden her son" (2 Kings 6:28-29 RSV) and
"The hands of compassionate women have boiled their own children; they became their food...." (Lam. 4:10 RSV) and
"What is to die, let it die; what is to be destroyed, let it be destroyed; and those that are left devour the flesh of one another" (Zech. 11:9 RSV) and
"They snatch of the right, but are still hungry, and they devour on the left, but are not satisfied; each devours his neighbor's flesh" (Isa. 9:20 RSV) and
"you shall eat the offspring of your own body, the flesh of your sons and daughters.... The man who is the most tender and delicately bred among you will grudge food to his brother, to the wife of his bosom,...so that he will not give to any of them any of the flesh of his children whom he is eating.... The most tender and delicately bred woman among you...will grudge to the husband of her bosom...her children whom she bears, because she will eat them secretly,..." (Deut. 28:53-57 RSV).

Religion produces relatively complex metaphors about existence that believers then use to communicate their ideas and understandings between them. I think the contradictions are necessary so that they can be used to elicit wildly different meanings for different people. Thus, a person may use metaphorical passages to discuss their personal views, can relate these ideas to another believer in such a way that the believer can understand, all without requiring a specific grasp of English (or whatever language) and education.

I was just watching the news. A local church has burnt to the ground this morning. But no worry, there is a happy ending to this story, the pastors house burnt to the ground as well.

That's hilarious. They don't even know if it exists but the "know"..... "will almost certainly be made up mostly of hydrogen and helium and will probably have an atmosphere much like Jupiter's"
HA HA HA !!!!!
The planets beyond Jupiter that we know of do have atmospheres much like Jupiter's.

Why shouldn't it be speculated, if another is found, that it will too?

The statement you quoted was qualified with the word "almost".

But, you don't care.

The science books at my high school taught us about the NINE planets in the solar system.
It was taught as an irrefutable truth, not a possibility.
Why do you believe Pluto even exists?

Yeah. Christianity is a ritualistic cannibalistic religion. That's what the Catholics and Anglicans, Lutherans, whoever, do when they partake in the Eucharist.

Kurt Vonnegut wrote many books on that subject. Perhaps the most poignant is "Cat's Cradle."
