How did he not get his own creation story correct?? How is my Bible a myth? you state "proven fact" then prove it and GOD is not a cult and HE DOES NOT MAKE MISTAKES or LIE.

the first lesson from your bible, straight out of the garden of eden..."do not seek knowledge. do just as you are told and all will be ignorant bliss." just like every cult ever...
your church was against the printing of the bible, knowing that actually reading it,(which it seems you have not, would be bad for business)

thegreat push for indoctrination of the young, your friends and the "heathens"...pretty cult-like..

This is part of the Republican agenda to implement tenants of Fascism into America and erode the long standing aim of equality, justice and liberty for all Americans.

The Republicans have long sought to move America into two categories of Citizenship intend on limiting the guarantees and protections citizens are privileged in America, Us vs Them, We and Yall.

This divisive attitude is derived from a feeling of entitlement and supremacy. Any ruling that minimizes the fundamental founding principles of America and, begins the downward slip on the slipper slop to Fascism.

These the same fanatics that used in America the Bible and Religion to justify the most outrageous brutality and murderous rage known to man since the campaigns of the barbaric Romans.

I'm reading some of the post on this subject of GOD and Religion and given the blackness of their hearts as dispelled in their postings, it's pretty apparent they are saints of the gospel but rather more like Witches and Warlocks.

That's how an active member of the American Taliban would frame their argument.

Religion has nothing to do with politics in America, never have and as long as we remain a Free Democracy, never will.

We are a nation evolved from the idea that each individual has the god given right to pursue his/her happiness independent of their personal beliefs, preferences and practices so long as their activities do not infringe on the next person's right and access to the same.

You are free to embrace your superstition and myths, but you are not free to "Tread on Me"...... with those dogmatic beliefs...

By the tales of at least one version of the Bible, Jesus was conceived out of Wed-Lock.... some of the children also conceived under similar conditions would seem to have more in common with Jesus than you.. I'd say they are indeed following in his direct footsteps and qualify for a dose of his mercy...
