    Is God bald? Do you really, really think the "Father of All That is True" would mall 42 kids with bears because they called a man bald?

    And wether you think so or not someone in the past has edited the bible here and there to control others. Test it out yourself and find out! Rip a page out of your bible and add a new one in. Lets see if God stops you. Im betting on he truly wouldnt care because he didnt sponsor it. I bet he might even smile for a little bit at your bravery. But thats just a guess on my part.

    There is too much in the bible that says "Obey your elders, lords." "Dont be rebellious." "Take this land here and portion it off in a specific way for your use to praise the lord" and it all sounds like excuses to control people in mass to me. What if the people you arent supposed to question happen to be evil? Flawed Bible.

    I was Christian until I actually started reading the bible and got to parts that made me think, "Whatttt... the... helll...?!"

    If the Christian god is truly god as depicted in the bible and he would maul children for saying "baldy" then he is a Lord Of Terror. A demon pretending to be altruistic God to only those who obey him without faltering (and even then he still sometimes "allows" satan to torture and test those who obey). Conditioning through fear.

    What are you going to do when you stand in front of God and he says "Oops you didnt think on yoru own. You had blind faith in me and THIS is what truly enables evil within the world. Goodbye" and casts you into hell for being a robot?
    I suppose the parents of those boys were openly oposed to God's own selected profit. And they copied their parents and they got the penalty for both. Any way what does this have to do with a church rejecting an orginization from their ground that teaches values counter to their own?

    I guess I read to fast and thought you said YOU think the bible is perfect. But now that I read it again you said "they". I was pointing out that Im pretty sure its not even though I believe in an altruistic omni-being. I guess I would like to ask them the meaning of this passage and not you. And some of the other oddball ones that made me go WTF I cant remember.

    oops.

    If these people truly believe that wouldn't they be killing people in the name of God? Wouldnt they instantly pluck out their left eye? I think they are just lazy and want to feel good about themselves as easily as possible.

    And you're *still* dodging the point

    You tried to dismiss brothern's comments by pointing to a mistake he made (even though it wasn't a mistake) while insisting that you're an expert, in spite of the several mistakes you have made about christianity

    Compassion comes from the heart and a "left wing" idea is to take someone elses money to give to one in need and not having to deal with any of that messy heart buisness. The "right wing" idea is to personaly contribute to a charity or other such org to brng about the same result. At least it is more personal that way.

    The difference is, we are comfortable with admitting we don't know how the universe began. You guys on the other hand can't stand the thought of not knowing something, so you made up a sky man story to make you sleep better at night and as a cop-out to harass your fellow man.

    Making something up, like, "I believe in a flying spaghetti monster", then claiming it must be true because it can't be proven wrong is just rather sad and childish.

    And yet...and yet you would have us believe that, basically, a rock decides it wants to be alive in the future, so it, somehow, figures that out and actually does this amazing feat that even these so intelligent, highly qualified and motivated "scienctist" creating all the most favorable circumstances, even they cannot achieve...

    And....wonder of wonders, this rock also somehow figures out how to create a completely new idea, DNA, to continue rocks becoming alive and striving to continue to live, providing for diversity, blah blah blah...and claim this to be true even though it cannot be proven true, or just as probably if not more probably is untrue... and then DEMAND that all the rest of us study this silliness as if it were absolutely true and also accept it... that is a little just a little dictatorial, would you not agree? At least our side asks you to voluntarily accept it, its not foisted upon us in the schools that, in effect, worship these scientific "pronouncements" as sacred of this small scientific elite and what they say, which is what they say must go...

    You talk about sad and childish, and add that dimension of totalitarianism...scary...

    Ummmm...science doesn't go around making up their own brands of nonsense? You are much too full of yourself...that's just exactly what very many theories are... and rocks somehow deciding on becoming somehow living things, all by themselves...come on...does that not somehow sound a little silly to you...or...existence from nothingness?

    I admit I do not know, I also admit that you don't know, so why do you folks force this upon us in our schools and then complain when we offer another view in our private lives... can't take the competition for the minds of the people? Not a fair fight is it?

    And sure, there are times I think I am discussing things with an absolute rock here on Debate Politics, but that's just not quite the same thing...
