the 'myth' is being proven true every day you're here to challenge it. c'mon, what is inspiring you to spend this kind of effort on something you believe to be so incredibly unmerited???
prove it's a myth by not letting it have anymore pursuasion over you;)
You nor any of your fundie buddies here have proven a darn thing. But you do your little victory dance as if you have solved all the problems of the universe.

You are the one who makes up stuff that the Bible doesn't say on a regular basis. You are the one who has said you are just like Jesus. Next thing we know, you'll have a colony in some remote area and there will be aerial photos of thousands of people who believed you and drank the Kool-Aid.

Yes WN, You can reciprocate with a Christian funny, if you like... May I ask how/or what you believe?
No, you may not. What I believe is personal. I don't throw it out here like a pimp trying to sell an aging hooker like most of the Christian extremists here do.

I don't need verification or validation for what I believe. Therefore, I have no need to convert anyone.

You have a nice night.

By the way, that wasn't a 'Christian funny'. It was an honest question. But since you chose not to answer it and make it something else, I assume you haven't seen this version of God in whom you believe.

I've always been intrigued with the possibility that the story of Isaac's sacrifice originally didn't end so happily ever after.
Since the language changes at THE key point in the narrative, something happened, fo sho.

It's certainly possible that an older form of the story concluded with the successful sacrifice of Isaac. He is never mentioned again by the author of the E-source.

It is possible that the 'E source' may have been disavowing Judah's primacy through Isaac. It may be the basis for a proto Islamic primacy of Ishmael.

Accused witch burned alive in Papua New Guinea
The Associated Press
Thursday, February 7, 2013 8:23 PM EST

PORT MORESBY, Papua New Guinea (AP)—Assailants stripped, tortured and bound a woman accused of witchcraft, then burned her alive in front of hundreds of witnesses in a Papua New Guinea town, police said Friday after one of the highest profile sorcery-related murders in this South Pacific island nation.
Some of the hundreds of bystanders took photographs of Wednesday's brutal slaying. Grisly pictures were published on the front pages of the country's biggest circulating newspapers, The National and Post-Courier. The prime minister, police and diplomats condemned the killing

Kepari Leniata, a 20-year-old who had a child, had been accused of sorcery by relatives of a 6-year-old boy who died in the hospital the day before, police spokesman Dominic Kakas said.

She was tortured with a hot iron rod, bound, doused in gasoline, then set alight on a pile of car tires and trash in the Western Highlands provincial capital of Mount Hagen, Kakas said.

"Investigations are continuing. We've got good leads. The husband is the prime suspect," Kakas said.

Sorcery has traditionally been countered by sorcery in Papuan New Guinean culture. But responses to sorcery allegations have become increasingly violent in recent years.

Kakas said the death was the first the sorcery-related murder in Papua New Guinea in a year.

Police Commissioner Tom Kulunga described the murder as "shocking and devilish."

"We are in the 21st century and this is totally unacceptable," Commissioner Kulunga said in a statement.

He suggested courts be established to deal with sorcery allegations, as an alternative to villagers dispensing justice.

Prime Minister Pete O'Neill said he had instructed police to use all available manpower to bring the killers to justice.

"It is reprehensible that women, the old and the weak in our society should be targeted for alleged sorcery or wrongs that they actually have nothing to do with," O'Neill said.

The U.S. Embassy in the national capital Port Moresby issued a statement calling for a sustained international partnership to enhance anti-gender-based violence laws throughout the Pacific.

The embassy of Australia, Papua New Guinea's colonial ruler until independence in 1975 and now its biggest foreign aid donor, said "We join ... all reasonable Papua New Guineans in looking forward to the perpetrators being brought to justice."
