California man washed out to sea during baptism

Two others were swept out by a huge wave but were able to swim to shore.

The US Coast Guard says the search for Mr Flores was called off at midnight on Sunday.

The baptism was just finishing up at 10:00 local time (17:00 GMT) on Sunday when the church members were hit by the wave.

"A big wave came and took Benito," Mr Cervantes told local broadcaster KEYT. "I tried to take him out, he was heavy and then another big wave came."

Maybe we should hold "god" responsible for creating the waves that killed Mr. Cervantes ... RATHER than giving god credit for killing the poor man.

GNOSTICISM:

Its prominent characteristic being syncretism, the scholars, according to their various points of view, have sought its origin, some in Hellenism (Orphism), some in Babylonia, others elsewhere. This question, however, can not be discussed here, as this article deals with purely Jewish gnosticism.

Jewish Gnosticism.

Jewish gnosticism unquestionably antedates Christianity, for Biblical exegesis had already reached an age of five hundred years by the first century C.E. Judaism had been in close contact with Babylonian-Persian ideas for at least that length of time, and for nearly as long a period with Hellenistic ideas.

Naturally those in religion wanted to perceive their selves as owning knowledge ... so they all wanted to jump on the Gnostic (knowledge) band-wagon.

Ex-Jewish Gnostics became Christian Gnostics ... and added the Jesus-myth TO their newly formed literature.

<quoted text> Of Course it would have been a "natural" phenomenon, how else do you think God would have brought on that destruction? June, have you ever saw them petrified trees? how some are standing upright? now science suggest them trees, and there are many of them world wide, would have stood up like that, for millions of years as sediment built up around them, anyone with common sense would say hell, them trees would have died and toppled over, due to rot, but what probably actually happened is, as the water from the Flood Receded, it built that sediment up as the water got less and less, leaving the trees no time to have rotted, the assertion that them trees stood upright for millions of years, is just Ridiculous, as anyone would know if you ever walk in the mountains and see rotted trees..
(from a Q&A board)

The petrified trees are what Creationists call "polystrate fossils" (for 'many strata').

But it is not at all a 'stumper'(if you'll pardon the pun) for geologists, and in fact they've known about this since geologist John W. Dawson described and explained such a formation in 1868.

But Creationists don't get to be Creationists by staying "up-to-date" (as in advancing past the 19th century) on the scientific literature.

Start here:

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

In a nutshell this is a great example of how the arguments of Creationism depend very much on the audience having a limited exposure to a particular science topic, be it genetics, anatomy, thermodynamics, biochemistry ... ior in this case geology.

The one true God doesn't require willful ignorance. No more than the one true God get angery and kills and tortures its own creation.

Plus everybody knows that concept of collective punishment is just plain immoral.

So much for the Creationist delusion.

Come now to the lite of truth.

You won't answer my questions ... and that speaks volumes in how your conscience is fully aware that you are a liar.
i believe that homosexuality is offensive behavior to God/Jesus.

i believe that atheists make their own choice to be seperated from God, even though He gives equal opportunity to all through his Son.

I quoted directly from your post. I don't blame you for not being specific.

In delusions, one makes foolish statements that can not be backed up. So now I "missed the point?"

OK, please re-state. Or just smugly run away, as you always accuse other of doing, I might add.

I don't fear specifics or facts. I have no problem with science or the scientific method.

My God is the true God.
