    How come nobody has answered me? Where do they stock the Koran or the Talmud?
    Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.

    they found sodom and its sister city,it was destroyed by fire and brimstone,however scientifically it appears to be from a volcano,the garden of eden was found as well.numerous other things were found written in the bible and other texts from other ancient religions of the region.

    that doesnt make them fiction,but rather exaggerated truth.it is a belief system,science cant prove all of it,but much was true,and the rest id belief.the difference between fiction and beleif is one is not proven,but believed,while the other is fabricated for the intention of being false,mostly for entertainment purposes.
    Are there volcanos there? Was the "garden of Eden" found in Africa where humans came out of?

    Would you like me to directly quote what you said with a post number? And then link the above statement? Because as it seems...it DID change. As a matter of fact...it seems you just attested to it.

    A little tip. When trying to be a smartass...don't contradict yourself in your very next response.
    Alright, fine. Religions change at a glacial rate. Is that better? They do not do so in response to the evidence, but when it becomes so absurd that they continue to ignore the evidence that they're forced to accept some small bit of reality.

    It's still not making religion look good, sorry.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    the bible itself has historically been shown to be somewhat accurate,however many stories were over exaggerated or stretched out.

    however you not believing in it does not make it fiction,it is religion and theology and thus belongs under such category.
    It's not personal opinion, it's supported by every shred of evidence there is. You're the one with the personal opinion not supported by the facts.

    You can't make a prophet from selling the Talmud.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Entitled? No. It's just that nobody can stop you, no matter how absurd your beliefs are.

    That's really not a belief Grant. But accepting the bible as reality is.

    Wait? So if it isn't in regards to "evidence" that makes then change...then how can they accept it as reality? Obviously they do respond to evidence, just at a slower rate than you deem acceptable.

    But then again...what are we talking about here? What should Christianity change right now?


    It's still not making religion look good, sorry.
    No. What is silly is stereotyping all religions into the "never changes" or "slowly changes" category when there is no real consensus (you know denominations that have different interpretations) in the one religion you most likely deal with on a regular basis.

    So I am curious. What "change" you would like to be made in "religion" and on what "evidence" this change is based on? You know. Other than not existing because you disagree.

    Actually anyone who is an American in this thread IS, by the very definition of the word, entitled to their religious beliefs. I'm pretty sure most countries would grant such freedoms too (if they are Western Nations).
