Wrong.

The Dark Ages were the period of about 500 years following the collapse of the Western Roman Empire circa 400 AD. They were a time of ignorance and superstition and most peoples lives were difficult, brutish and short.

They were followed by the High Medieval Period from 1000 AD to circa 1400 AD. This was a bit better due to the warming trend allowing a longer growing season as well as the introduction of field rotation which produced an abundance of food.

The Medieval Period was noted for the constant persecution, wars, inquisitions, genocide, Crusades and other atrocities committed by the Christian Church(es).

No major political or social changes occurred until the Renaissance and the Enlightenment.

63, not 200.
That has happened many times in the last 4000 years and your "parting" never occurs.

There have even been hurricanes producing 150 MPH winds for days at a time and they have never dried up the Red Sea.

Once again, reality trumps your "words on paper".

For instance, if you were to ingest particularly virulent strain of E.coli from food for whatever reason (unsanitary cooking conditions, improper food preparation, etc)- you would find out real quick that those bacteria can care less about your medical history.
RR is a "Christian" and he can eat all the e.coli he wants and it shall not hurt him.

Mark 16:17-18, "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover."

No real believer has ever died from e.coli. If a pew warmer dies of e.coli he was not a real believer.

"Reality"?? Please quote the Bible where it says what you say, that the Red Sea dried up.

Those "noted" are selective.

It was a period of reconstruction.

We are sitting real pretty now because of it. The Church was the only glue to hold it together and the force to reconstruct. Wouldn't have happened without it. Unless the Muslims had conquered Europe and rebuilt it their way.

Where I live my home on the east side of town would be close to 3 mil, and on the west side it would be worth less than 1 mil. In Texas it might be worth $250,000.

I am on 40 acres. We grow lots of grapes and make our own wine. We have won awards at the local county fair.

Damn your Benidis.

They proved that a 63 (NOT 200) mph wind would make a land ridge in the Red Sea.

But it was mostly Christian people using Christian morals (like take the plank out if your own eye) that overcame those problems.
If Christians helped put an end to the abomination of slavery and help bring about more equality for women then they did so in-spite of the Bible, not because of it. Christians today demanding equality for gay people are rejecting biblical teachings to do what is right.

How one can go against the Bible and still believe one is a Christian is a mystery to me.

Genesis 9:21 (Noah "drank of the wine, and was drunken")
versus
Genesis 6:9 ("Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations").

No they didn't.

You are either massively stupid or massively dishonest.

BTW, the Hebrew Scriptures do NOT mention the Red Sea once.

It is Yam Suf, Sea of Reeds. That is the marshes of the Nile Delta, a place that does have tidal changes and subject to wind set down at low wind velocities.

Oh lol. I meant a .5 bathroom. I have a 1 bath in the house and 1/2 bath in the garage.

1 bath = tub/shower, toilet, sink.

3/4 bath = shower, toilet, sink.

1/2 bath = toilet, sink.

1/4 bath = toilet only.

Join us.
You have let the Government do to you what we call "brainwash".

Doctors are much more dangerous than "street drugs" partly because they "push" the deadly poisons from the American Pharmaceutical Cartel.

But even if marijuana was dangerous, putting young people into prison with violent professional criminals who turn peaceful pot smokers into violent anti-social angry parolees who move into your neighborhood after getting out of prison is not the right answer.

Complete and total legalization is the only real answer.

It seems now that about 58% of Americans agree that the Government has been wrong about marijuana and want it legalized for recreational use. I hope the government releases the parolee's back into the neighborhoods of the other 42% who like the war and how it is making society more dangerous.

Just north of me Sheriff's just killed a teen after waiting 10 seconds for him to throw down his toy gun. How many more children have to die before you want the government to stop its war on the American people?
