Part two
Prophecy
The book of Revelation is a book of prophecy. It was written by John. It tells us about the things that "must shortly take place." Revelation is written in symbolic language. Most of Revelation should not be interpreted as it is stated. A person must understand what the symbols mean. Only then can he interpret it properly. Also, many of the things mentioned have already happened.
I really laughed out loud at that symbolic language that shouldn't be interpreted as stated part.

None of it should be, according to most Christians until they are trying to prove something. Then it is taken literally.

And since you are dishonest enough not to print the source of your material, I will do the same thing I did on your thread and call you on your dishonesty and give the source: http://www.carychurchofchrist.org/bcc/bbs_l4....

You are neither blogging nor texting. But I don't guess you get that.

<quoted text> It's basic common sense to a medical student. Anatomy and physiology was one of many of God's attributes as they were all his creation. Are you really that naive to think the God who created us wouldn't know something like this?
So you're saying that priests were medical students?

The question was to whom this information about circumcision was told and how. As usual, you did not address the question.

You just did the fundie dance all around it with seeming indignity that someone would not understand things as an indoctrinated fundie would.

Now, once again:

To whom did God give this information and how?

The presence of hermaphrodites in light of the sexual fetal development is tacit evidence that heterosexuality, homosexuality, and bisexuality are all quite "normal" as proven through methodological naturalism. Sex-dichotomous differences are not absolute in the human population, and there are individuals who are exceptions (e.g., males with a uterus, or females with an XY karyotype), or who exhibit biological and/or behavioral characteristics of both sexes. This is irrefutable, demonstrable, testable, falsifiable, and repeatable, everything your pocket god and its immorality and anti-human geist is not.

The occur acne frequency is immaterial but it is in no way rare. Funny how your perfect designer allows deformities. How can you people twist your minds in such convoluted ways to buy the nonsense you sell?

By the way, you didn't explain it, you tried to dismiss it. That is not the same thing. You are quite the effete ineffective

The catholic church, as we know it, did not exist when those texts were created. And all of them were created in the 1st and 2nd centuries.
But the catholic church, under the orders of Constantine, took a few of the thousands of documents available and chose which ones everyone was to believe from that time forward. And Christians who claim Catholics are not Christians still follow only the books which they chose. Ironic, isn't it?

I have yet to read any of your vague supernaturalist that even approached being anywhere near "right".

<quoted text>You still didn't answer the question of why God wouldn't have just made men so they wouldn't have had to have a torturous procedure done on them. Why don't you try answering that first?
Also, why did God command that he be brought these pieces of penis that had been cut off? That sound quite perverted to me and a lot of other rational people. I'm sure you have some dancing around these questions that you can do in an attempt to answer them.
They can't answer it so they have to compose 50 other lies to tail-drag their way out.

Does anyone know why God picked a certain length of time before circumcising was to be done, as always God had a very good reason for waiting a certain amount of time, anybody know?
I had all of my boys circumcised because their father was, and when I asked the Doctor why the need for it, he explained about cleanliness and possible infection. I am not Jewish, so it was not a “rite”. I do not understand why we are talking about a Jewish tradition, that turned mainstream due to health concerns, on a thread for folks that are no longer Christians.

You haven't seen anything yet. Just wait till he gets really frustrated because he can't answer any questions on his own. Watch and you'll see that he never directly answers a question. If he does come close, it is because he found something online that he can copy/paste and never gives an attribute to the author of said material.

Then he gets nasty.

while you think of it, could you explain bisexuality to me, if you think it's something other than a combo of choice/lust & addiction?:)
Why are you asking? You claim to be bisexual. You should know what it means if you claim it.

No it isn't. Babies are now circumcised right after birth or 2nd day of life at most. They don't bleed to death because babies are born with clotting factors. If not, they would all have to be given a clotting factor (which they are not) or they would still bleed to death from the circumcision.

Do some research before you believe everything your church tells you. That way, you won't look quite as deluded.

<quoted text> Here's one of many places you could of gotten the answer, since you're this lazy this one is on me. On the eighth day, the amount of prothrombin present actually is elevated above one-hundred percent of normal—and is the only day in the male’s life in which this will be the case under normal conditions. If surgery is to be performed, day eight is the perfect day to do it. Vitamin K and prothrombin levels are at their peak. The chart below, patterned after one published by S.I. McMillen, M.D., in his book, None of These Diseases, portrays this in graphic form.
No, that is not correct. There is a drop in levels 24 hours after birth that returns to normal within 48 hours, and not over 100% as the lying apologists claim. It is also not sex specific but natural to all babies. The only place you will find your claim is among apologists.

It does not explain why the skin is there in the first place.

Oh, and McMillan is a lying hack. He told a woman who was beaten many times by her husband to give into her husband and her life will be worthwhile and happy. Your source is a discredited nutjob whose work belongs in the trash.
