    Re: So what are you reading?

    Actually rereading The Great Gatsby for the first time since middle school. Just graduated college in May, and its the first time in a long time I've had to read a book for myself, since I haven't...

    Re: Christoph Waltz = Next Bond Villian

    In terms of ethnicity, of course, Jesus was middle eastern. The Hebrews were all descendants of Abraham, who came from the land of the Chaldeans. The Chaldeans lived around the area of the...

    Re: Religious Freedom Bill

    Sort of. I actually live in Indiana, and so have been hearing a lot about it.

    The basic premise was to protect people from having to do things that violate their religious beliefs. The example...

    Re: Just for the sake of stirring up shit:

    It isn't that they "stopped" being religious so much as they discovered that they were never really religious in the first place. Faith isn't something you can pick up when you like it and put it...

    Re: World Road

    The military implications of this are not really that significant. It's the economic effects that will worry people. Right now Russia has to pay hefty shipping costs to trade with the western...

    Re: Who you were

    I was raised in a home where we were officially Christian, though it was never really a big part of our lives, at least during the early years. My parents became more serious and genuine about it as...

    Re: Fat Acceptance

    As someone who's been on both ends I can offer my two little bits of opinion:

    1. Being not fat is way better than being fat. No matter how hard it is to work it off, its worth it. That "work" is...
  8. Re: Man dressed as a Jew walking the streets of Paris

    Your definition of love is inaccurate, because you have no conception of how wonderful and perfect a thing it really is. You don't think adultery is deserving of death because you don't really...
  9. Re: Man dressed as a Jew walking the streets of Paris

    The adultery test "ended" in ~33 A.D. It more functionally ended far earlier, when the Jews stopped having faith that God would back it up. God rarely does anything for those who don't fear him...
  10. Re: Man dressed as a Jew walking the streets of Paris

    I think we're repeating ourselves for the most part, so I'll try to touch on the big topics:

    Re: When did God stop... - He didn't. God never stopped acting for those who trust Him. He certainly...
  11. Re: Man dressed as a Jew walking the streets of Paris

    Re: A government harms another... - Don't think in terms of governments. These were not standing armies sent against other nations by a handful of bureaucrats. We're not talking about the Greeks,...
  12. Re: Man dressed as a Jew walking the streets of Paris

    I'll going to try to be specific here, while at the same time guiding my responses to address the "themes" of a lot of your objections. I don't really have much time to spending on this after this...
  13. Re: Man dressed as a Jew walking the streets of Paris

    Proof of miracles.
  14. Re: Man dressed as a Jew walking the streets of Paris

    Another double post.
  15. Re: Man dressed as a Jew walking the streets of Paris

    As for your other scriptural references, many of them can be resolved if you'll look up some of the reasons for the fall of the kingdoms of Israel and Judah in my long Bible summary posts. For a...
  16. Re: Man dressed as a Jew walking the streets of Paris

    1. They were children. The Hebrew is words used here are translated in the King James as "little children," but this isn't quite accurate in our modern vernacular. Tee NIV, for instance, translates...
  17. Re: Man dressed as a Jew walking the streets of Paris

    As a reply to Dumah's 8:13 post (You guys gotta slow down. It takes time to be this long-winded). Again, you'll have to excuse any typos. Let me know if you have any questions about the scriptural...
  18. Re: Man dressed as a Jew walking the streets of Paris

    As for atrocities committed by order of the Bible, you'd be hard pressed to back that claim. That isn't to say that the Bible hasn't been used to justify atrocities, of course, but that says nothing...
  19. Re: Man dressed as a Jew walking the streets of Paris

    One of the key things we must realize about any epistemology is that no one can "prove" truth. That isn't to say that truth doesn't exist, but rather that the human mind is limited in such a way as...
  20. Re: Man dressed as a Jew walking the streets of Paris

    Ok, looks like I just double-posted the Bible.


    I win everything.

    1 & 2 Kings, 1 & 2 Chronicles: God makes Solomon a promise: Because I loved your father David so much, ask me anything and I will give it to you. Solomon is very young and he says that, because the...
