    Wow, the people in this thread arguing from both sides really need to understand the definition of allegory. SMH

    Most Christians are not this literal.

    Best go to all of 'em, World Council of Atheists included (if only they'd get on with finally forming the darn thing).

    That should cover all angles.

    Incest? That explains a lot!

    My opinion is that since the homosapiens developed language, we have painted a rosy picture of the great unknown. The unknown is what happens after we breathe our last breath. The less enlightened (animals) just know when it is time and accept their fate. Since we cannot explain what happens, we have developed the life everlasting scenario. Religion has been responsible for more turmoil than any other source that I can identify.......

    Any. Physical. Evidence. Pick the period, pick the continent, provide us with a source for the remains of these bones, and who has examined them and determined them to be older than 123 years of age. Find a single bone from any period that is anywhere near 200 years old and has been verified through radiocarbon dating.

    Thanks!
    Bah, the bones of those all went to heaven.

    Isn't everything on a message board ultimately meaningless?
    Let's revisit what I have said and what is what and who is who. You are the driver of the car. God is the legislators, as they make the rules. The stop sign was the warning that you ignored. That warning has been there all along and it is that one you are to believe, but some just ignore the warning. Free will, you know. You can choose to run the stop sign, but there are consequences to what you choose.

    That free will thing does cause a lot of problems. Should we have a dictator God instead?

    He gave you the stop sign, but you did not want to stop. Don't blame God for your choices.

    Do you believe that Adam and Eve existed?
