i wonder if she realizes AL didn't believe in christian god.
in fact he often stated that nature was his idea of god.
And he had a much greater view of it all. One which (for the most part) He and I are on the same page.

Don't applaud, throw money! The Great One is back, feeling refreshed, and more knowledgeable, wise, and charming as ever. You may all bow in unison!

Of course they are not the same. My answer was based on the Bible, xians are going off of things that were made up by xians in the early churches.
For the rest, see my previous post.
I'll take that as evasion.

So I'll ask one more time: If sin is defined by the first five books of the Hebrew bible, what is that definition? If it is missing the mark, what is that mark?

Well, I think they tried harder, as a group, then. They most of them retired in sacred ignominy, and left the field to the HellaBoyz and DamnationDarlings. >yaawwn<

Huh? Can't be:
26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy *son*!
27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto *his* own home.
"Son" and "his" (translated from Greek, granted) indicate a male, and by reference John.
"Look at me Mom. I am dying."

"Mary, take care of your mother-in-law."

There were no men there, They would have been strung up, too. That is why the were all hiding.

The word "son" is most likely inserted later to put "John" where he wasn't.

Feel free to interpret it any way you want. It doesn't matter anyway.

You once again take something out of context to try to prove that your superstitious imaginings are more important than knowledge.
If you take into consideration the country of Germany at the time he was brought up there, never daring to ask questions of anything taught to him, you might then understand that imagination is the application of knowledge plus questioning plus imagining what could be done if the mind was not stunted by those who would keep you from questioning or imagining. The same was true of Gallileo.
But you don't seem to be able to think beyond the words you use to try and prove that education is the bug-bear and faith should replace it. Don't deny that either, as several of your posts have belittled knowledge in favor of an imaginary being.
Stop using your computer. It's not imaginary. It took not only imagination but knowledge to invent it. Write everything down with quill and ink and have a pigeon carry it to someone who thinks learning isn't against God's will.
Great questions. Ask Einstein...wait, he's dead. You probably wouldn't need to ask him anyway, you're so much smarter than he ever was, I should be quoting you!

<quoted text>So you agree that Annie made a complete fool of herself by having an intelligent and well-thought out post?
You and clownie should get together. His last girlfriend dumped him. I'm sure I can't imagine why.
What fools the two of you make of yourselves mocking an intelligent post. What a fool you make of yourself for congratulating someone who can't come up with anything more intelligent than 'your dumb' as an answer.
The two of you are doing just what is good for the world...helping to completely wash the filth of fundamentalism from it.
I was laughing at Clownie. I have no issues with Annie. She is lovely.

I think you grant him too much credit. I was thinking more along the age ot maybe 7 years, he can't be more than 10.
Were any even 14-year-old relative of mine that incompetent in the language, he or she would be in deep doo-doo.

<quoted text> Why would Jesus have had a need to inform his mother that he was her son?
I realize that everyone interprets the Bible differently. I have no doubt if half a dozen people read that each of them would interpret it differently. But I still don't understand why Jesus would have had to announce himself as her son. None of my sons has ever said,'Woman, look. Here is your son.' They say 'Hi, Mom'.
Unless, of course, the "twin" story is true.

I noticed that she agreed with him but just decided to say...oh well...
I think the conversation between NS and I is what it should be all about...not the subject matter but the fact that we could see something from a different point of view and discuss it civilly...hopefully each having a little clearer insight into each other.
I suppose that it just doesn't work that way for some.
Again...oh well...
I'm pretty sure Clownie was talking to Huh in the post I responded to, just checked it again and yep, I thought Clownie's post was funny and my comments had nothing to do with you or NS. Not sure how that came across.
