umm...ok... nice, but - WHERE IS GOD IN ALL THIS?!
i.e., "guides life...raise kids...community...eat..etc "
and you wonder why God extended His family to include gentiles who are actually excited to know His Messiah/Christ?:-)
"WHERE IS GOD IN ALL THIS?!" That's between me and God.

Positive thinking is a start !
You don't need religion ,....try " Common sense / Practical sense " .
faith is applicable to the spiritual/moral realm as common/practical sense is applicable to the physical realm. i.e., the 2 are not contrary to each other unless the anti-Christ & carnal mind makes it so;-)

Faith I understand , but what does GOD have to do with it ?

People exercise faith in many things , explain how GOD is necessary , please , you yourself as the example ?

You have overthought the subject. Yes, we have all been duped. One should be skeptical; however, there comes a time when the person has to grab onto the truth, to stand on bedrock and declare, "I stand on this truth as the bedrock, irrefutable truth."
If you never do that, you will be double-minded, and a double-minded man is unstable in all his ways.

sure sure...but none of us lives or dies onto ourslelves and even the law and prophets stress the necessity to receive the words of the prophets.

if we didn't receive the prophets, how would we know to receive Thee Prophet/Christ, who Moses said "a Prophet like onto me shall arise among you and Him you shall hear or be cut-off from Israel"?

BTW - i LOVE the Jews and i might even be more of a Zionist than yourself!:-)

let's say for instance the Bible scenario turns out to be true, AND even if it isn't; however could the followers of Jesus be the one's going to slaughter vs the non-followers; i.e., who/what would be the slaughterer in your scenario?

Talk to God all the time, and believers will love you for it.
Talk to Him through your hair dryer, and you'll be committed.
I fail to see how the addition of a hair dryer makes it any more insane.

But I do recommend assuming an alter ego here.
Just a suggestion.
Regardless, welcome.
I guess I was not direct enough about not being able to cope with Topix. I had no idea when I came here that my full name would be used, and I have no idea how to change that. I'm willing to come here every few months, not every few hours or days. In any case, I'm not as open to attack as some others, and I don't take words personally.

we were created to be bonded with God in spirit.

if you don't want that, i hope you don't mind the idea of being in solitary confinement for eternity!

Horse Hockey!

You'll have to do better than that for an example. No one is committed for muttering to themselves or hair-dryer. You may get looked at strangely, but unless you become a direct threat to yourself or others you will never be committed.

The streets are full of disturbed people muttering to nothing... some even call what they mutter into cell phones and behind the ear headsets.

You see now that is wrong. In fact the Bible has been found to extremely accurate even as a historical document and Christ and His miracles have found to be documented well outside of the Bible.

Rome took a great interest in him and it has been proven the Gospels would stand up as evidence in a court of law 2,000 years later as a validated affidavit of ancient events.

The crucifixion itself was scoffed at by non-believers who claimed no one was crucified as described until they found the human remains still containing a nailed used exactly as described.

Sodom and Gomorrah were said to not be places until found -- actually the cities they now call Sodom and Gomorrah aren't the actual cities but were built after the destruction of the two -- as the Bible said after its destruction the eastern 3rd of the Dead Sea was poured over them to conceal them from all man kind and YES, THE ARCHEOLOGIST KNOWS THERE ARE TWO CITIES where the scriptures say they should be (in the plains and not on a hill) beneath the sticky salt in the far eastern 1/3 of the Dead Sea... but because of the soupy salt brine they can't excavate and they remain concealed, but artifacts showing the cities are there are brought up via dredging machines during salt extraction ..

Anyhow, I FIND IT ODD... VERY ODD that C14 dating only can be done only on objects that are no older than 5,600 years old...

Science claims because it is the half life of C-14 and it peters out... REALLY?... if only half of the C-14 is gone why can't they test the remaining half? Could it be because the Bible says life only goes back about 6,000 years and there isn't anything organic beyond that? It's a rather odd coincidence ...

Now you will claim the world is billions of years old..

Perhaps, but now here comes your same TEST... Which can't pass the test you assert on religion either... PROVE IT ...

It can't be done ... because it is BASED ONLY ON THE THEORY OF STRATIFICATION ... and a theory is not in itself fact ... and stratification is highly flawed ... lol...

Next PROVE EVOLUTION ... it too is a theory ... with no fossil record to support it ... PERIOD!

Mathematically speaking evolution is not possible for one organism to survive the hundreds of thousands mutations needed to become something else as mutations almost always kills the host.

According to Occam's razor (a method used by everyone from detectives, to doctors attempting to diagnosis an illness to scientist attempting to find a solution) the simplest answer is often the correct answer or truth...

God is the simplest answer.

One or two questions here...
Which "god" being are you talking about? Your god or the god of islam or the god of the jews or one of the 30,000 plus different god beings of the fragmented christian religion?

Also, just to use a current example, the ebola virus strain has already evolved and/or mutated over 300 times and it continues to do so. This is one reason it is going to be very hard to find a cure or vaccination to treat or prevent it.
