FYI - that wasn't my definition.

I think this pretty much sums it up:
A just verdict on the Gnostics is that of O. Gruppe (Ausführungen, p. 162); the circumstances of the period gave them a certain importance. But a living force they never were, either in general history or in the history of Christendom. Gnosticism deserves attention as showing what mention dispositions Christianity found in existence, what obstacles it had to overcome to maintain its own life; but "means of mental progress it never was".

They didn't have junk food back then, so they were limited to staple-foods.
But they also didn't have the knowledge of medical science that we have today, and all that malarkey about people living hundreds of years was from my perspective, just more silliness conjured in the minds of ignorant men with over-active imaginations.
You haven't read much of the Bible have you? Therefore I don't think you are qualified to debate/discuss this issue on the health laws that God gave in the scriptures. Check this link out

You can shove "religion" up your ass for all I care.
We are NOT brutal as you put it. We learn it from our environment. I have no doubt whatsoever about that.
If you wish to promote brutality and hatred that is your venture. I have learned there is a better way.
Sometimes one has to cross the line to be efficient and survive.
Watch two babies fighting over a toy, and you will see the selfish traits as they develop.

Teaching children to play fair and nice is a constant battle of wits.

You might not want to see that humans are brutes, but we are, and we have to work at trying to be nice to each other.

This forum is just an example of how people can be mean by the use of words.

That is why those in religion held the bible in one hand and the sword in the other. The book didn't change their human natures. It just gave them excuses to be mean which was their natural inclinations.

Also if you're familiar with the health ordinances that God gave us in the scriptures,allow me to ask you what some of the foods are that we are forbidden by God to eat. Then show me where even one of those forbidden foods are considered by todays scientists as being a super food.

I don't find it strange at all that these super foods are mentioned in scriptures and then along comes todays scientists and say that these exact same foods are super foods. God made these bodies and He knows what will keep them healthy and what will make them ill so is it any wonder that He allows us to eat those foods that are healthy (scientists concur with God on the good foods) and forbids us to eat those foods that are not good for you.

If one has spiritual eyes to see one can see that there is GREAT WISDOM in the scriptures.

With people knowing so much about gods and goddesses and aliens, it's too bad there is no proof. Just a whole lot of words and more words and more words that go on and on and on.
Have you ever really "seen" a ufo?...or had any experience with it at all?
If you haven't, who the hell are you to tell anyone who has?
You are nobody in that dimension or reality. An asshole who is talking through themself.
Do not even compare it to "gods" and "goddess". You are completely out of your element here.

By all means relate all your experience in relation to this subject.

Marge...

You asked me a question....I responded.

So far, unless I missed it, you have not replied. As a minister of the Gospel.....don't you think that is not becoming to a Christian....such as yourself???

That word HOLY on the cover of the bible ought to make all readers suspicious.

What about all that supposed evil stuff? Why didn't they advertise THAT part of their book.

They wanted you to come and learn how to be holy.

What a sick joke.

They prayed they would win their wars. They prayed that the gods would help them kill "heretics" and "witches."

Religion is horrible!!!

Alright, lets duke it out on semantics.
According to "The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language" Empirical evidence "is a source of knowledge acquired by means of observation or experimentation."
I've given scriptures that say we should experiment on the word of God, live his teachings and he will give us signs for us to observe in return. If I am wrong in calling that empirical evidence, please correct my understanding.
The gospel is built on empirical evidence. The way I read it, it says "if this, you will see that." It gives us a verifiable statement we all can test individually.
Well, then show me the "empirical" evidence of your deity!
While you are at it, have him and his satan meet me in my "meeting" room will you? Make sure Jesus is also invited too.
Don't wan't ta leave anyone out Y'know?!
You are also invited as witness.

When you can prove UFOs exist, then I will believe you.

Until then ... I won't.

Your rhetoric is no more believe-able to me than the rhetoric of those who brag of having a personal relationship with deities.

I wrote of this same occurrence years ago on the forum, but will share it again.

A man of the Seventh Day Adventist religion was in terror as he shared with me the story of how dark beings hovered over his bed the night before.

I knew this man was invested in the belief of a devil, as he had often made mention of that belief.

I then asked him if he believed in God, and he was astonished at my question, and wondered why I would even ask such a question.

I suggested that if he believed in the goodness of a god, that he stop giving power to the idea that a devil even exists and give all that power to his belief in the goodness of the God.

I met him several days later and he thanked me. No more fear ... no more imaginings of a devil ... no more "apparitions."

From my perspective, whatever we believe, is what we bring into our experience.

It doesn't mean that what we believe is real ... it means that we believe it is real.

Ok, are you some kind of financial advisor or accountant? Again, lets duke it out on semantics.
If you fund something...you are expecting those funds to produce some kind of asset or service. The creation of that asset or service is a service rendered, even if it isn't rendered to you directly. Therefore, funding is paying for services rendered.
You can keep playing with words, or we can get down to the meat of the topic.
You are such a joke.

Paying him fir eorks of art are NOT funding his research.

Are you really that ignorant and/or stupid?

According to fossil evidence, the story is incorrect.
No scientific method can prove the age of the earth and the universe, and that includes the ones we have listed here. Although age indicators are called “clocks” they aren’t, because all ages result from calculations that necessarily involve making assumptions about the past. Always the starting time of the “clock” has to be assumed as well as the way in which the speed of the clock has varied over time. Further, it has to be assumed that the clock was never disturbed.

There is no independent natural clock against which those assumptions can be tested. For example, the amount of cratering on the moon, based on currently observed cratering rates, would suggest that the moon is quite old. However, to draw this conclusion we have to assume that the rate of cratering has been the same in the past as it is now. And there are now good reasons for thinking that it might have been quite intense in the past, in which case the craters do not indicate an old age at all (see below).

No scientific method can prove the age of the earth or the universe.
