Jew (word)

It thus ultimately originates in the Biblical Hebrew word Yehudi meaning "from the Tribe of Judah", "from the Kingdom of Judah, or "Jew".

If any of ^that^ crap is true June, then one is left to wonder why it is that you act as if it takes some skin off your nose when someone here does praise "it" and then you proceed to vilify that poster, bash their beliefs, call them names, and conclude with your classic move.

Should the "intelligent design" be taught in school science classes?
I suggest that if the theory of evolution were given equal time in the classes, it would be fair, as then the children could decide on their own which makes more sense to THEM.

Religion dictates that it is based on truth. Science relies on the word "theory."

It's not fair to brain-wash children and bully them into specific religious beliefs.

Not fair at all!

Children grow into adults, and when they find out that religion didn't give them choice to think on their own ... many will hopefully say ... "NO MORE!!! I want to choose my own belief."

I am inclined to agree with you. There are many who need others to think for them and direct them in what to do, say though ... apparently.
Do you believe that you would make a qualified "director???"

Maybe you could check with your "contacts" and see what THEY think about your "readiness."

As for the rest, you seem to be the only "deep thinker" here. So deep in fact, that most posts fly right over your head. I get it. Your name-calling speaks volumes about your depth.
Good luck and may the Force be with you.

"What is the difference between Christianity and Judaism?"
Study it and you will see that as soon as possible the Catholics changed the day of worship from Saturday to Sunday.

They removed the title ADONAI from the god of the Jews ... POST HASTE!

Their AIM was to take the Judaism out of Catholicism, and make it OVER as a new religion.

At what point did Christians start thinking of themselves as separate from Judaism?

The preacher of Antioch and later of Constantinople, John Chrysostom, complains in a series of eight sermons to his congregation, that "you must stop going to the Synagogue, you must not think that the Synagogue is a holier place than our churches are." This clearly indicates that the break between Judaism and Christianity, even as late as the 4th century ... still is not absolute, is not permanent.

Yes. I'm a big fan of Einstein. I am familiar with the first NASA tests of that theory.
If so, I'm surprised, because you will have then contradicted yourself, again.
But getting back to your "current reality here," do you accept the theory of evolution?
The only thing that shows a contradiction is in your rewrites and your misplaced stereotypical assumptions of what I actually said.

Please, by all means Mr. Delusion(s), show me the contradiction.

There it is again June. You're blaming all the suffering on a "God" which you say does not exist and ignoring man's role in that suffering ... both in the cause and the elimination thereof.
I don't believe that a creator exists to allow suffering, much less ordain suffering.

That is different that "blaming" a creator.

Simple question for you June.
Is man a part of nature?
or
Is man apart from nature?
Humans are animals, so yes we are part of nature. And I suggest that we are not special over other forms of life in any way whatsoever.

Horsepucky June.
Christians that I know question that all the time.
You are simply incorrect on that.
If they questioned what created the god that created the universe, they would understand that a god could not come out of nothing.

Men created gods in their own imaged.

Other animals existed long before humans and they didn't create gods in their images.

TINK about it!

BTW June, you are also incorrect in your assessment that they (people of all religious persuasions) say "there was nothing" dear, they ALL say something to the effect of "In the beginning, there was _________." (fill in the blank with whatever "God" origin applies)
In the beginning ... what created a god to in turn create the universe???

It makes no sense.

Nope???
Fanaticism a human trait. How else do you think of it?
Are you saying that all human traits and emotions are equally dangerous to humanity?
Is all religion equally dangerous?
You are so profound, it's difficult to understand your "wisdom."
Try being more specific. Exactly what are you trying to say?
Is this an argument for "intelligent design?" Who knows? You won't say.
:o)
Yes fanaticism is a human trait, but I also see it to certain degrees in other species.
Fanaticism takes on as many forms as there are people. If one is fanatical about individual freedom for all, then is that a bad thing?
If one is a fanatic about curing cancer, is that a bad thing and an enemy of humanity?
Of course not.
That being said, the other poster's claim that fanaticism is the enemy of humanity is incorrect.

Look at this entire thread and it's subject matter and some of the vile things that fly back and forth here.
Now, is not the entire mantra of say, you and June one which decries how many people down throughout history have been slaughtered in the name of religion? Do you two not say that it is going to be the downfall of man?
Is not the whole world at each others throats right now?
Are we involved in a multi-front war right now?
Does mankind not possess weapons which are capable of destroying the entire populations of not only man, but all the other animals as well?
Nope is correct.
Humanity itself is the biggest enemy of humanity ... currently.

<quoted text> We are not talking about the other "saviors" ..
When "scholars" start including that other saviors were and are as real as is Jesus ... then they will be fair to those in all other religions.

But to center ONLY on one savior as being real, and ignoring the others ... that is naughty "scholar-shipping" and not balanced study.

The point was about "fanaticism" dear. There are fanatics in ALL walks of life.
You, my dear, are a fanatic with your own axe to grind.
<smile>
Of course Atheists and Agnostics can be fanatic, but you won't catch them burning others at the stake in the belief that a god ordained the killing.

And you won't catch them preaching that Jesus wants homosexuals stoned to death.

And you won't catch them preaching that "God" wants over two hundred different death penalties put into law because the god is offended by human behavior .... et cetera, et cetera, et cetera..........

That was my point.

You missed my point entirely.

If you had been raised as a Muslim, you would not think as a Christian.

If we were on a Muslim forum ... the discussion would be based around the truth of Islam and how the 12th Imam (the Mahdi) is expected soon to take the HOLY Muslims to PARADISE.
If you stand outside of the religious circles, you will clearly see that they all defend their own closed-in circles as being based on truth.
There is something very disconnected concerning that picture.

I said Islam borrowed from Christianity and Judaism, while incorporating the personal thoughts of Muhammad. He was a false prophet. Most Muslims aren't fanatics at all. Most Christians aren't either.
Muhammad believed he had the 'word of God'. So do you, Confrint, Joseph Smith, Ox, David Koresh....
The only difference is Muhammad and Joseph Smith had the guts to write their own Bible while others just take someone else's; apply their own unguided interpretations and call it the " Word of God ". Its crazy.. you've completely unraveled the Eucharist (and go as far to mock it), Baptism, Sacraments, Priesthood, the complete canon of scripture, everything! Yet u still say you have the word of God? You're just another Muhammad. You've essentially wrote your own Bible using our words.. Take note Rose, Marge.... don't follow these men.
…4Who has ascended into heaven and descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has wrapped the waters in His garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name or His son's name? Surely you know! 5Every word of God is tested; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him. 6Do not add to His words Or He will reprove you, and you will be proved a liar.…

In all areas?
What compels science, or rather, more accurately perhaps, a scientist to engage the scientific method for proof of any theory?

What about the scientific method would you change?

Nope. I gave up my position as self appointed dictator of the world long ago.
My "contacts" see through a variety of eyes from a variety of walks in life.
That "connections" line really tripped you up huh June.
