How is this at all disrespectful? I was asked a question and give an answer. I can see this is going to go no where fast and just end up with name calling...

i dunno man, I don't agree with your points about the whole creation timeline and I'm a Christian. But regardless, I have to say those who oppose religion in this thread have been extremely cool about this topic.

I feel like the questions they have posed have been done so in a respectful manner without much name calling, and I appreciate that. No need to take your toys and go home...

it is disrespectful to the intelligence of the forum and mine to post such inane, nonsensical, backward concepts about the age of my (our) planet and the crap about dinosaurs. you are a troll.

LOL...really? This seems pretty close minded. But I still wanted to give you a video of a scientist who does believe this.



But I also think I'm done discussing this here as it has come now to personal attacks about what I believe when all I was doing was answering a question.

I knew this discussion was something I should stay away from. Do you even make a point here? Am I an atheist or a bible thumper? Definitely a moron. You sir, are an embarrassment to your platform, thank you for making my point. Continue with your vitriol, as the world and history has just been too stupid till you showed up, thanks for enlightening us.

No you're spamming..answering a question requires a brain. you obviously burned your out...or you would not post this crap other than on your religious forum. People like you are like a dead weight for human evolution...like the Taliban you know? those backward religious fundamentalist individuals that can hear no reason? Like that.

Still proud of it?

I respect peoples belief in religion at least they all believe in something wonderful happening at the end of their lives as opposed to the non-believers who only look forward to becoming worm food and nothingness when we keel over.

I grew up in the Christian faith and as much as I would like to believe seeing and knowing things that can't be un-seen or un-known prevents me from becoming a believer again. Here's a couple things that I can't get over...

Quote:
Genesis 22 - Then He said, “Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.”
What kind of lame test is this? Like God said, "I don't think you love me enough, take your son and kill him....April Fools!!!" God or not, who does this? Jim Jones?

They stopped writing the bible about 2000 years ago. Why did they stop? Textbooks come out with new updated versions each year. Why can't they update the bible to reflect the times? Most of the stories seem dated and archaic if applied to today's situations. It's like reading a book or even watching a movie 60 years ago that was trying to describe life today, all of them are waaay off.

A while ago there was a coroner that they interviewed on tv, they posed the question if he believed in God, he said he has hard time doing so after seeing the things people are capable of doing to each other on a daily basis.

I also once saw pictures posted of a 5 or 6 year old boy in mexico where the other couldn't pay a drug debt so the enforcers or whatever they were called ripped the lower jaw of the boy off his face in front of the mother. After reading this story and seeing the pictures of the aftermath I now cannot stand it when people say that God helped them in any aspect of their lives because they prayed somehow something miraculous happened that all of a sudden they were helped when I'm pretty sure that kid was praying (maybe to the wrong God) right before his jaw was ripped from his face. I just don't understand how God would help some people out but not others who you would think desperately needs his help especially in a situation like that.

Just things to think about.

Must disagree. While I find the posted arguments (especially the carbon-14 stuff) to be laughably unconvincing, I have to keep in mind that I have a more-than-average understanding of science in general and the subject in particular. YOu too, probably. But Calvary is trying to be responsive. So attack the response, not the responder.
