No, woodtick57 is right M&M....there should not be different versions of the Bible, and there shouldn't be a few thousand different denominations either.

IF there were a God I would expect his/her word to be the same for everyone and ALL would know the proper way to worship and do it the same.

All the differences are one of the ways we know there is no God.

"Where did Darwin's ideas lead?

Enthused with his new theory, it's doubtful that Charles Darwin gave much thought to the possible moral consequences of what he was writing. He certainly could not have foreseen that less than 75 years later, his ideas would lead to Adolf Hitler and the Holocaust, the Nazi attempt at exterminating the Jews. But Professor Weikart's detailed book documents the connection, with plenty of quotes from mostly German philosophers and scientists in the intervening years.
Dr. Richard Evans, professor of modern history at the University of Cambridge and author of The Coming of the Third Reich, says that Weikart's book "shows in sober and convincing detail how Darwinist thinkers in Germany had developed an amoral attitude to human society by the time of the First World War, in which the supposed good of the race was applied as the sole criterion of public policy and 'racial hygiene.'
"Without over-simplifying the lines that connected this body of thought to Hitler, he demonstrates with chilling clarity how policies such as infanticide, assisted suicide, marriage prohibitions, and much else were being proposed for those considered racially or eugenically inferior by a variety of Darwinist writers and scientists, providing Hitler and the Nazis with a scientific justification for the policies they pursued ..."

Where do CHRISTIAN IDEAS lead?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pope_Paul_IV

Quote

In 1555 he issued a canon (papal law), Cum Nimis Absurdum, by which the Roman Ghetto was created. Jews were then forced to live in seclusion in a specified area of the rione Sant'Angelo, locked in at night, and he decreed that Jews should wear a distinctive sign, yellow hats for men[6] and veils or shawls for women. Jewish ghettos existed in Europe for the next 315 years.

As it is completely absurd and improper in the utmost that the Jews, who through their own fault were condemned by God to eternal servitude, can under the pretext that pious Christians must accept them and sustain their habitation, are so ungrateful to Christians, as, instead of thanks for gracious treatment, they return contumely, and among themselves, instead of the slavery, which they deserve...
— Paul IV, Cum nimis absurdum, 1555

End quote

So let's see, ASIDE from the virulent Christian Jew-hating of Martin Luther which pervaded Germany, where specifically did Hitler get his ideas about ghettoizing Jews, making them wear yellow stars of David, etc.?

Right from you Christians, of course. You had been torturing and killing Jews across Europe (in the NAME OF JESUS, no less) for 2000 years!

Problem is Weikart is a pseudo-historian. And as we've already pointed out that even IF evolution was Hitler's motivation, he was doing it wrong. Because like you, he did not even understand the concept. And wouldn't care even if you did.(shrug)

Laughable. Should we also blame the Christians since the Nazis wore "Gott mit uns" on their belt buckles. Same logic.

Actually it happens every day. Natural chemical processes are all that are responsible for bringing the formerly non-living elements that make up your body to life. We call this process biological reproduction.
Still using biological reproduction as an example of how the first life appeared!

It's not a lie. Merely a statement pointing out that natural chemical processes produce life out of non-living materials.

Of course we go through this dance every time. I point out the facts, you can't address them, you make lame puddle goo jokes then run away. In the meantime, evolution (which is my interest, and not abiogenesis) is left unscathed.

yes, all the evidence would say that abiogenesis is far more plausible.
there is not one shred of evidence against God.
