No, no...I'm saying that relative morality has no standard. And by having no standard Charles Manson morality is just as good as the Pope.
In other words, morality is an illusion, subjective not objective and therefore can be changed at a whim...
Were the laws and standards of the Hebrews/Christians changed at a whim?

Animal sacrifice, no animal sacrifice.
Shellfish are bad to eat, shellfish are fine to eat.
Mixed fabrics are sinful, mixed fabrics are not sinful.

Morality is not an illusion, but the morality that works best is the one that most greatly fosters a cooperative society wherein everybody works for the betterment of everybody else. That has repeatedly demonstrated its value. Any territorialism has merely been a matter of preventing others from disrupting this society on a smaller scale, for fear of an incapacity to apply it on a larger scale because of avarice and greed.

Should we trust the Jews and their opinions regarding the theology that is theirs in the first place? Or, do Christians understand the Jewish myths better than the people who created the stories?

There are many Jews that have realized who Jesus is.

Well...when you put it that why, vampires, werewolves and zombies are getting into heaven too...

If he fulfilled "ALL", then why is he coming back?

Did the heaven and the Earth pass away?!?! WTF! No one told me!! Wait a minute, I am living on the planet, so it has not passed passed away!

I guess that is why you paraphrase jesus' words, cause it sucks for you, if you read what is written.

BREAKING NEWS: "Atheist and Materialist Mythical Worldview Crumbles as Junk DNA Discoveries Go Public"

Listen to the details
http://www.cross.tv/84088

No longer can Junk DNA be used to support Evolution nor be used as a logical attack on an Intelligent Designer by Atheists.

~ http://evolutionfacts.blogspot.com/ ~

We are now finding function for Junk DNA. Johnathan Wells meets with Frank Turek and exposes to the public the breakthrough implications of new discoveries in genetics and Junk DNA. DNA produces RNA and RNA produces Proteins and Proteins make up our bodies. The Atheist and Materialist myths about Junk DNA are crumbling and the evolutionists in the science community can no longer hide this evidence from the public.

Atheism is a Dead Modern Myth of the Self-Absorbed and socially suicidal.

BREAKING NEWS!

(Well, for creationists anyway)

Junk DNA is irrelevant to the validity of evolution which fundies like AIDS denier Jonny Wells nor our fake prof here have been able to address. Plus on top of that, evolution is not atheism, and every time you whine about atheists you admit to all that your "scientific alternative" is GODDIDIT WITH MAGIC!

By the way fake prof, you still haven't apologized for lying in the first couple of sentences of your very first post in this thread, despite the fact your own religion has an EXPLICIT COMMANDMENT FROM GOD HIMSELF telling you not to lie, something you do constantly.

Take a hike, hypocrite.

Laws were and are based on actions that are and are not acceptable to the society that makes them. The fact that some of these are mirrored in the 10 commandments is no surprise but you are in error.

1. Thou Shalt Have No Other Gods Beside Me:

Americans are free to worship what gods they will or none.

2. Thou Shalt Not Worship Any Graven Images:

American are free to worship what images they wish or none.

3. Thou Shalt Not Take the Name of the Lord Thy God in Vain:

I can't remember anyone getting arrested for saying you are a god damn liar.

4. Remember the Sabbath Day to Rest and Keep it Holy:

Sunday football need I say more?

5. Honor Thy Father and Thy Mother:

Good idea but hardly a law in America.

6. Thou Shalt Not Murder:

Worldwide law that spans the globe and time before America.

7. Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery

This law is punishable by your wife.

9. Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness:

Then all Christians who denounce evolution and lying for jebus
are guilty , but only under oath are you breaking the law.

10. Thou Shalt Not Covet Anything That is Thy Neighbor's:

There is no law regarding this in America.

So you got 1 thing based on the ten commandments. Though hardly a original concept.

Thou Shalt Not Murder.

It's BECAUSE of Christians REAL authentic Christians that you have scientific research with ethics {another word for morality by the way}, rights {the Constitution, the Bill Of Rights, the Declaration...}, and freedom of religion, freedom of conscience...
In a word no. How many times do you need to be told that the majority of the Founding Fathers were Deists, not Christians. Look up the difference. You will note that in all those historical documents, the phrase God was used, but not Christian God?

Well, that god spent the first few of hos top ten commandments on his vanity and jealousness and insecurity...

Now isn't that the kind of universal creator you would like to follow?(not even adding that he's a real prick, a poor parent and a shitty moral guide...)

My favorite is #4. Three sabath days for the smae god...
