I believe historical events described in the Bible are true in different ways, when fairly considering the genre of the writing, archaeological confirmation, literary styles, and so forth.
For example, the account in Matthew in which Jesus gives a prophecy about the destruction of the Temple. He said not one stone would be left standing among the buildings that comprised the temple compound. And His prophecy was correct. The only thing left standing after the Roman sacking of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. was the Western Wall. The Western Wall was NOT part of the Temple proper, but a portion of the platform that the Temple rested upon. When Herod the Great rebuilt the Temple Mount, he had his engineers extend the surface area to accommodate all of the buildings. The Temple proper and the complex was much bigger than what Solomon had originally built. It's an amazing piece of engineering.
Which proves that 'Matthew' was written after 70 AD.

Next!

What lie?

Is there proof there's a god?

I don't believe there is.

No need to disprove what's never been proven.

When the challenge "Prove there's a god" is made... the only correct answer is "Can't be done. There is no proof."

You're the one struggling here, not me.

Yes, they certainly are deadly.
However they say it's a myth that the black mamba can overtake a person on horseback. On foot, they would be fast enough.
That's something.
Yep, that is a myth. Mambas are clocked at about 11 miles an hour. A human running flat out would do faster.

HOWEVER: when you are facing a black mamba and it comes at you, they are much faster than you could handle.

But such a cool animal! And that coffin shaped head! Its like evolution went to making this animal look the part.

The Water Moccasin is a badass snake. We had one in the reptile park I worked at while at varsity. He did have his bitch fits.
Problem with those snakes, as well as most of the other viperids, is that they are lazy. They would hear an intruder and then wait him out, sure that it would just pass by. It is then that these animals are stepped on.
Elapids (mambas, cobras, coral snakes, taipans, kraits) are far more energetic and they opt to choose a hasty retreat upon hearing an intruder. Even the most aggressive of elapids would rather avoid confrontation.
Coming back to that Moccasin. He always kind of eyed me. It was a big, fat specimen. Hungry fellow, he was.
We once had a strange thing happen there. One of the park workers (not a handler, they usually just did the rationing and janitorial duties) had a young boy. I cannot remember how old he was, I seem to recall it was 6 or 7. He disappeared and as luck would have it, a day prior to that, the green anaconda escaped its cage. When the snake was found, it was obvious that it was fed. The park workers were sure that he ate the missing boy and they threatened to bring out the police. The handlers then had to agitate the anaconda into regurgitating its meal, to prove to the angry mob that it ate a dead sheep.
Lolz. Those were the days
When I was a kid, I did some work experience @ the Australian Reptile Park, Gosford. That was very interesting, even tho I was mainly cleaning cages.

That park was set up by the "snake man" Eric Worrell (1924-87). He was a naturalist all his life, esp with snakes.
http://www.reptilepark.com.au/about-us/histor...
http://adb.anu.edu.au/biography/worrell-eric-...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Worrell

In the Fifties, he travelled to Queensland to capture coastal taipans to "milk" for their venom. They are responsible for many fatalies, unlike the inland variety, because they live in the more populated part of Queensland. Many people refused to work in the sugarcane fields, terrified of being bitten.

At the time, there was no anti-venene. So had he been bitten before one was developed with his help in 1955, it would have been a certain death sentence. So Worrell was a very brave man, he will always be one of my heroes.

The Reptile Park still milks some of the deadly snakes - taipans, tiger snakes and even cobras; including in their shows. This is sent to Commonwealth Serum Laboratories to make anti-venenes. They have saved many, many lives.

Of course they wouldn't let a kid of 15 near some of the world's deadliest snakes! I was allowed to handle harmless carpet snakes and even a Burmese python, walking around with it draped over me. As a result, I don't have the phobia of snakes that many people do - Ophidiophobia - just a very healthy respect of them.

And that's exactly why you're missing the point. You're trying to scientifically debunk a philosophical/theological account. You're using an empirical methodology to debunk something that isn't an empirical claim to begin with. Good grief!!! LMAO!!
You really think we believe that God uttered words and by those words the universe and life on Earth just happened to exist? That's ridiculous!! Of course there was a process, but I don't for a minute believe that God issued a command and "Poof!" there were planets and stars, and animals and plants.
Let's take a closer look at Genesis. I'll commentate as we go along. My commentary will be in brackets.
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
[This says who did it. Not how.]
3 And God said,“Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.
[When God said "Let there be light." it indicates an intention to create light. God declared a goal, and then accomplished the goal. What happened and how it happened between those two events doesn't matter. It doesn't describe any process whatsoever. Agreed? Let's move along. Notice that God separates light from darkness but still no process is described. It only says what He did, and NOT HOW it was done. Therefore, we can use reasoning to infer that the author doesn't care how it was done. Or at least not enough to offer a description. It's irrelevant. He doesn't take any pains to describe a process. If it was central to the purpose of the narrative, don't you think it would've been written down? Even if wrong by our own modern understanding of science? I mean really. If such a book as the Bible is so important to humanity, and if the process by which creation occurred is so important, then the process would've been written down. And it wasn't. So all of your debunking is in vain. It's like trying to officiate a baseball game using ice hockey rules.]
Quoting the scripture isnt allowed here to prove god,,

National Geographic ran a series called "World's Deadliest" a few years ago. I happened upon an episode that chronicled the 10 most venomous snakes in the world. All 10 were said to be from Australia.
Most venomous implies toxicity. Currently, toxicity is measured by dubious means: average lethal dose of murine subjects. It is not absolute. Just because a substance is deadly to rats, does not mean that it is lethal to humans as well. Case in point: chocolate is safe to eat for humans, but toxic to dogs and dangerously toxic to cats.

Also, remember that there are many ways to administer venom. Under the skin? Into a muscle? Into a vein?

Lastly, these tests do not take into account aggression. Some species are fiercely aggressive and will even come to you in order to give a bite.

Actually, it's you who continues to miss the point. Organized religion is a hoax founded to control insecure cretins like you and Christianity is a derivative religious cult with very little originality.

Only the most mentally retarded Christian godbots would even attempt to rationalize the juvenile creationist mythology in Genesis.

I watched another excellent episode of Cosmos tonight. There's absolutely no excuse why our planet is still infested with blissfully ignorant death-denying cowards like this f*cking moron.

What do you think of this passage from Matthew 26?
"While Jesus was in Bethany in the home of Simon the Leper, a woman came to him with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table. When the disciples saw this, they were indignant.“Why this waste?” they asked.“This perfume could have been sold at a high price and the money given to the poor.” Aware of this, Jesus said to them,“Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing to me. The poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me."
Well, from my cynic's perspective...I can see where all those televangelists got it from.
