So Enkidu & Shamhat have vigorous sex for a week straight so Shamhat can take Enkidu's "wild side" and the animals(his former sex partners) got upset.
That's EXACTLY the same as Adam & Eve, huh?
Christians often do not like to hear about how their sacred stories are nothing more than a variation on a much older story. Contrary to your silliness, though, there is a great deal of similarity between the stories of Enkidu and Shamhat and that of Adam and Eve.

Enkidu was the creation of the goddess Aruru. Similarly, Adam was the creation of Jehovah, another creator god.
Enkidu lives in a type of vegetative steppe known as an edin, while Adam lives in Eden (also an edin). Both Enkidu's edin and Adam's Eden are fed by rivers, of course - and in both stories one of those rivers is the Euphrates. Both Enkidu and Adam live naked and freely with the wild animals. Their female counterparts, Shamhat and Eve, come later, Shamhat being sent from the local city and Eve being made by Jehovah.
In both stories, it is the woman who introduces the male character to the "forbidden" knowledge. Shamhat, like you described dramatically, seduces Enkidu and in turn introduces him to the ways of civilized humans. Similarly, Eve introduces Adam to the apple of knowledge. After this, in both stories, the characters become clothed and change their ways from their 'wild ways.' In both stories, too, it is the introduction to the bigger world by their female counterpart that leads the male characters to their own eventual downfall, Enkidu eventually dying and Adam (and Eve) being kicked out of their edin (called Eden).

What is even more striking is the structure of both stories, in which similar phrases and placement of events appear in both stories. A much more detailed analysis of both stories can be found at:

You seem to be under the impression, RR, that your religion has something original to it, that it is somehow unique in some way. I understand you do not like to hear it, but there is nothing unique or original to your religion or its stories.

Riv, there's no such thing as a serpent anymore. We call them snakes now. It's the same thing.


sort-of

at the time it was written "serpent" was a mythological being (like angels) that was more powerful than men and less powerful than gods. Christians no longer "believe" that such creatures exist, RR is trying to dodge that topic.

Because science changes too damn much.
No, simply enough, what you were taught was wrong.
Humans did not evolve from monkeys, as you said you were taught.
What do you find so difficult about understanding this?

You are being unnecessarily dramatic. Hopefully your grandkids will be taught the correct information instead of misinformation as you were taught.
The primary reason behind children being taught incorrectly are folks like yourself that either are ignorant or who purposely misinform others.

No dude, I'm a dude. I've never been pregnant, nice red herring though.
Normal people don't need to take a course on how to do something natural, only the "intellectuals" do.
You've never been pregnant, so you do not know what sorts of stresses or worries that go through the mind of women who are pregnant. Neither do I.

The difference between you and I on this particular topic, though, is that I can accept the fact that telling pregnant women what they should or shouldn't do or what is "natural" is not my business, nor is it my business to judge pregnant women. You, on the other hand, feel entitled to judging pregnant women and deciding what is "normal" or "natural" based on nothing more than your own ego and self-idolatry.

Why are you so very judgmental of others?

OK, so God was helping Tebow win games, until Satan noticed. Then satan overpowered God and Tebow turned into the hack he is today. Makes sense. Old Luce is one powerful dude. God knows better then to fukk with him. Last time he did, Lucifer took half his angels and started his own operation. The G man's never really recovered from that.

Glad they mention the change back to Standard time some places. I would forget. Done that before.

Tonight.

The solar wind shoots protons and electrons as ions with accompanying magnetic fields.

These thingies are notorious for forming neutral mass under the right conditions, like being near each other. Or by near something here that can use their services to complete a recipe, new additions to the abode, and various and sundry endeavors needing that extra little ingredient.

Sometimes they show up when needed and sometimes not.

Kinda the way things work, huh? But they are there.

You still do not understand, do you?
Hazem - whether or not you agree, disagree, prattle on about percentages, have problems, accept, believe, etc - this does not change reality.

Like I said, you can jump up and down screaming that the world is flat, or that you think it has a 99% chance of being flat, or think that other planets might be spherical but ours is flat, or whatever - it does not make the Earth flat. Science, and in turn scientific theories, have nothing at all to do with your belief or acceptance. Likewise their reality is unaffected by your personal ignorance. You simply have no real understanding of science - you think science is dependent upon your belief, which is silly.

What this shows is your inability to think objectively. You keep trying to talk about science and claim to have "scientific truths" from the Quran, but you do not even understand science in the first place. In turn, you present yourself as a buffoon.

You are so incapable of objective reasoning that you cannot even accept the fact that humans are animals!

Negative.

I've never taught a science class.

But I have attended science classes.

And most of the time, it's just some BA teacher spewing regurgitated information from a teachers guide, not teaching.
You've never been pregnant, so you do not know what sorts of stresses or worries that go through the mind of women who are pregnant.
Yes I do. I have two kids and was there through the entire pregnancy and childbirth. And here I am, 17 years later still raising those children.

Besides, being pregnant is a natural thing, taking classes to do done thing natural isn't something normal people do
