<quoted text>And I was interrupted as I typed. Did you want to take another shot at the Ten Commandment question I gave you or do you want to know the answer?
I did answer it.

"The tenth commandment concerns itself with property. It is more detailed than most of the other commandments because it spells out what is right and wrong with respect to the property of others. The tenth commandment states,“Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s”(Ex. 20:17).

Nope, not the Ten Commandments I was talking about. I was talking about the Ten Commandments, you know, carved in stone. And you still did not choose from the four answers given.

So do you give up yet or are you going to insist on answer C?

<quoted text>This is what we know for sure: The Bible is a fabricated fable, period. Humans are not descendants or monkeys, even you agree with that statement. So, God is a Bible character, and monkeys are not your great, great lost relatives, that can mean only one thing. All those galaxies, somewhere out there advanced aliens are using the earth as a huge floating petri dish. That explains Project Blue Book and SETI.....because its not called Project God Book or GODI.......there dud now you know the truth about human existence.....your welcome.
Sigh. This is what happens when you play word games.

Humans did not come from modern monkeys they came from a line of ancestors with close ties to modern monkeys. Technically, those ancestors were likely more primitive than both modern monkeys and humans.

Now, are you going to put on your strap-on and parade around like a peacock, stating that maybe MY ancestors were monkeys but YOURS certainly were NOT?! Gee! Never seen that before. Wow! What transcendent intellect!

Worthless liberals and conservatives. The oral gratification, trying to win over vacuous peasants to worthless causes that only make liberals and conservatives rich, never ends.

Come on and show me how you can manipulate mortal minds with just your monkey feet! What FUN!!

Thought eperiment.
Try and read it as if it concerns god and what he states.
I ask that of all chr.'s i come across.
If you fail you use the wrong language.
Hence the short-sighted interpretation.

Obviously Langoliers is not going to meet my challenge for what the Tenth Commandment is that was carved in stone by God himself.

The Tenth, and last Commandment carved in stone was....

A ban on cheeseburgers. That was choice number one.

Don't believe me?

Go to Exodus 34 where it will tell you what god carved into stone. Of course these were the replacement stones but God said he would carve the same words that he did in the first stone.

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...

The tenth of the Ten Commandments that Langoliers quoted was only the tenth of a whole slew of commandments given by God orally.

I was talking about the big ten, those carved in stone.

Here is a nice video discussing this aspect of the Bible:

Big A, apparently you took the bait......gullible brainwashed human animal. Politics and religion are pure evils. They rot the already primitive thought process. But, you already know that Big A. A text book said, "Mankind will lose 90% of its population when Aliens materialize."

Bingo.
If (a) God exists, it certainly ain't helping us by sticking its arm down every now and then so we can do a blood test.
And then the same yo-yo's contradict themselves by claiming "evidence" supports Goddidit.
Me, I'm quite wary of anyone who says things like:
"We are offering a Free Connection to your deceased loved ones in Heaven"
so what about blood test. It means nothing. It's just human blood that's all, chromosomes from parents, genetic information, etc. so what. nothing special really.

It's the spirit that can get away not the physical body. muhahaha!

You will never get 'real' evidence of God.

But i think 'real' science (maybe you care to explain that term cybele) should be left to scientist and this kind of dawdling of acceptance is not to be incouraged for they are bound to get things wrong. Be it intentionally misrepresenting or not.
resting light particle??
Or what a higgs-boson particle actually is.
Explain 'real science?' Well it is derived from observable, verifiable, and testable facts.

You're right. They could be wrong. You be the judge. Do you have a better theory?

NASA anounced yesterday that they found out that the universe is flat...I feel rather two-dimensional ever since.
The media again. They must have caught on by now that this kind of formulation leads to a never ending stream of silly questions!
Been suggested for some time but now the measurement is considerably more accurate. Fascinating and so simple how it was worked out, angles of a triangle between the observer and 2 points on the CMB. Very long, thin triangle but accurate to better then 0.5%

A flat universe indicates an infinite universe, which poses questions about the BB. If the universe is infinite then the BB was (possibly) not the beginning but an event in an existing space or perhaps it’s just a lot more complicate than we currently understand.

What bait is that? Allowing you to segue into predictions about aliens landing? I guess I do regret giving any sort of legitimacy to that one.

OK, Humanoid. What are you proposing to replace religion and politics? What would you suggest to protect us from the "Aliens"?

Let me guess. You think all humanity can become united by listening to your preferred style of teenager-oriented music and maybe indulging in your preferred brand of procrastination?

Nice!

Check please! I'm bailing on this self-imposed lobotomy!
