Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

.. to consolidate dogma, the Council of Nicea was compelled to reject GoThomas ..
.. last, GoThomas suggests pre-existance in v. 49:
"Jesus said, "Blessed are those who are solitary & chosen, for you will find the Kingdom. For you have come from it and you will return there again."
.. the political backdrop and civil unrest authored the New Testament ..
.. most Christians renounce the Gnostic Gospels because their church has pronounced them heretic. Won't even read them. When the priests have spoken, the thinking is done ..
I'm curious, HL.

How do you know all this religious stuff?

I'm quite impressed!

Maybe you can teach me sometime.

You very conveniently cut out the parts I deacribed in detail about what qualifies a text as a 'sacred text'.
You only stated my claim. You're dishonest.
As atheists like To commonly do, because they don't like to claim responsibility for their actions, the common trend is to only use the bits and pieces that are convenient for them... And leave the rest out... Usually the important parts.
Not surprised or impressed.
And this was exactly my point also.

Absolutely false. First of all, people are animals, we are not separate and distinct from the rest of earthly life.

Anyways, at the very least, all mammals have some form of consciousness. Many have demonstrated self awareness (dolphins, apes, and others), and many have demonstrated tool using ability (including, of all things, certain types of crows, they can even combine tools).

You really should start fact checking your posts.

.. my atheist counterparts? Selective finger pointing? Do you know me ??..
.. name-calling from any faction is inappropriate as is censorship. It's a fine line ..
.. no, you did not address my question regarding the political climate at the time of the Nicea Council. You did make certain allegations and additional information was requested ..
.. in this post, you deflect and fail to address my rebuttal. That's OK. I understand ..
I'm good with my fingers.:)

To believe this, you have to be a creationist.

Many of us here aren't.

Or maybe you didn't notice.

Please put up a link for someone dead for days. A long time ago some people were buried alive because their heart beat became so faint and breathing so shallow that they were thought to be dead. But in modern times, I have never heard of that happening. So there must be something on the web to tell that story. You heard of it somewhere. Point us to it please.

Those r a few examples. These people were DEAD. Not just hardly breathing. Read the stories.

You can't measure it, or even be aware of it, unless something is moving. It is a byproduct of "creation".
The expansion of space creates the illusion of time or as Einstein said space/time.

So, in your myth, when the Jesus said Peter would deny him three times during the night before the cock crowed, was that free will?

Or was it a prophecy fulfilled?

It appears as if Peter could only do one thing, if the Jesus was what the myth said he was.

I'll consider that the bible has any validity as soon as you consider that any of the thousands of other holy books have validity.
I have. In the end, I chose to believe the Bible, because it is historically, textually and archeologically backed up: whereas other 'texts' can't hold up those claims :)

Picture the most perfect woman you can. Beautiful, merciful, loving, and all of that.
She can get a pimple on her nose or a boil on her butt. It is part of her universe, her oneness.
The story goes the Creator inserted part of itself within mankind. That makes mankind an extension of that Creator. Pimples and boils do tend to make their own little worlds about them.

God inserted what into who you say?

Please allow me to cut in- it's called cutting and pasting useless hearsay nonsense from 'atheist' websites.
If she had a clue about what the bible actually says and about the origins of the Gnostic texts, she wouldn't be here.
Anyone can google search bullcrap to suit their means... But when a strong argument comes up against it, please watch 'Happy Lesbo' carefully in how she responds.

No, it is not. Stop saying that. Your claims of biblical accuracy have been refuted I don't even know how many times, but you keep on persisting. Who are you trying to convince? I believe I can safely say that no one here is going to be swayed by the same tired old arguments.

No such thing as someone being brain dead and coming back to life. Not possible. Cut it out. Depleting the brain of oxygen for long enough is irreversible.

I'm glad there are Christians like you who still hold near and dear to the Lord's word. Don't let the Atheists lead you astray. God Bless.
