To equate all ways of knowing, you must stop caring about what is actually true. If you care about what is actually true, only rational skepticism and its derivatives have a solid track record in that arena.

Islam and Christianity are roughly equivalent. They display about the same level of wrongness.

That's a very good point, Tide. You might be on to the path of scientific methodologies.

You're still a death-denying cowardly Christian cultist even though it's been explained to you repeatedly that organized religion is a hoax. A coward deserves contempt not love!

Notice, however, that I am using "God did it" rather than the pejorative that you are using.
Anyways, claiming that "God did it" is not knowledge. It's intellectual laziness.

You go ahead and believe their beliefs if you wish. It's your reality. You can also go back and read what you wrote that I responded to.

Someday I may explain to you why your learning your first language has interfered with your development in learning and understanding. Has to do with phonetic sounds and associations having to be modified by additional layers to accommodate the new language and associations, The initial imprint from a particular sound doesn't get erased, it gets patched over.

I mentioned this earlier.

You believe a 18 month or two year old has the ability to form that kind of story with those kind of details? Enough to watch movies and actually understand all that he sees to create such a story? Enough to give him nightmares? Enough to understand things like death, for one.

If you think that gay people are born that way, you're more than welcome to prove that idea right.
In the meantime, we true freethinkers will go on thinking that people choose sexuality and that NO infant has a sexual desire.
You--a slave to your superstition and religion, who believes only what he's told to believe by his pastor--call yourself a free-thinker?

How's that work?

Ok, fair enough. I'm sure they weren't.
Byt the Serpent figuratively describes biblical places like as Egypt (Jer.46:22), and the city of Dan (Gen.49:17).
In Jeremiah, he also compares the King of Babylon to a serpent (Jer.51:34).
So unless places and people are also snakes, the Hebrews had several used for the word "serpent". It seems it was most commonly used to describe deceit or a deceiver, not a snake.
London was described in "Dracula," so by your alleged reasoning "Dracula" musta been a true story.

You really are weak in your faith; you demonstrate time and again that the only way you can validate it in your own mind is by trying to shove it onto others.

You're a miserable failure.
