Peace be with you.
After a discussion between MattmanDude, CrazyOldTeenager, and myself, a short (but to the point) series of rules will now be coming into effect for this...
Basileus Basileon Basileuon Basileuonton. Translated as "king of kings, ruling over rulers"
Just a message from an old wanderer passing through.
Lot of information for new recruits packed into a mere article. Also has three medal of honor soundtracks to listen too while reading if you want. Enjoy.
Your new order of business now that you are a member of the Grand Army of the Lord Jesus Christ.
You believe in a magical man in the sky.
No, i belive an omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent creator who's majesty is unprecedented. He is the creator of time, and space and matter. The people of the universe and the stars burn and praise his name and rejoice. It is the Lord God. And if i ever meet him ill collapse on my knees and praise him. The creator of time. My father, my creator.
Jesus died for us, he made the ultimate sacrifice and made it possible for us to be forgiven and I love him with all my heart, soul and mind.
Unfortunately his adversary (satan) has clouded the minds of many of God's people, searing their eyes and ears shut. The Earth bleeds sin. Satan controls the governments, the banks, the systems, and one day he will directly control the world.
This is the end of time. Fall of sin. I pray that Jesus will open your mind before it is too late, for the end of time is nigh...
You believe in a magical event where nothing produced something for no reason whatsoever. That's wishful thinking and it's found in fairy tales just like evolution (The Frog Prince).
Hmmm. I wouldn't be surprised if new evidence emerged showing that Darwin was influenced by The Frog Prince fairy tale when creating his theory because both the evolution fairy tale and The Frog Prince fairy tale share similarities in stating that a man came from water. In the evolution fairy tale, man can trace his ancestry back to marine life.
The difference between the evolution fairy tale and the Frog Prince fairy tale is that The Frog Prince fairy tale is honest and states that the frog only turned into a man through magical means.
The evolution fairy tale states that a creature's descendants changing is natural even though we all know it isn't. Care to explain evolution's idea on how a mammal evolved into the whale? The way I see it, if we have a dog stepping into water and then going underwater, how could it eventually have off-spring which evolve into the whale? The dog would drown and it would have to be mentally incapable to even think that going in deep water was a good idea in the first place.
Speaking of which; doesn't evolution teach that down-syndrome is the next step in human evolution? It's all about mutations isn't it?
Yeah, thought so.
I'll continue believing in that being who exists beyond the universe. You continue believing in magic which mutates people into different beings. According to evolution, dragons could easy exist on another planet far away and could easily come into existence on this planet in another million years.
I know this is an older post, but, I just couldn't let you get away with your misinformed interpretation. Whales ARE mammals. And also, evolution by natural selection does not select for mutations that are likely to lead an organism to a quick death before reproducing. If you look at any living organism on this planet, you will notice it is suited for living and reproducing in its local environment. This is the result of adaptations to their aforementioned local environment. Thus, evolution.
And if such a "dense" explanation leaves you wanting, I can supply you with a "terse", practical example of modern-day evolution, and it all happens right before our eyes: Plospathogens.org
Also, I have to say, your last paragraph is borderline intellectually anemic.
Evolution a fairy tale?
You should read the bible. Lots of weird **** in that fair tale. "people walking on water, Some old guy getting every type of animal onto a boat, People live in fish, snakes talk, corpses come back to life, I could go on forever!
Religion is just having a imaginary friend. no one has ever seen any god.
@Evanp: Well there was this guy named Moses...
How does that foot of yours taste? I thought so.
I've read The Bible. Jesus walked on water because he is the Son of God and God gave him these abilities. Since God created the universe, life, time and those big balls of plasma up in space that you call suns, I'm pretty sure he could make someone walk on water just as he could bring people back to life.
The Bible explains these miracles as the will of God who we know is real. Since God created the laws of the universe I'm pretty sure he can change them to suit his will. See my article debunking atheism:
Nope. There's no Bible verses there. Just pure scientific and logical facts.
What evidence have you for your beliefs? I've already debunked the theory of creation out of nothing. The article proves - through scientific method - that's it's impossible for something to come from nothing. The Second Law of Thermodynamics does away with your odious little religious belief you call atheism.
This apparent plot hole is explained in a later episode, where God tells Abraham that seeing God kills human beings.
Okay, so I'm being smarmy.
Firstly, *sigh* Noah only had to take one of each 'kind'. One feline, one canine, nada, nada.
Secondly, the fish was no ordinary fish.
Thirdly, corpses coming back to life is a miracle, and therefore clearly beyond the scope of discussion.
You have all been brainwashed.
Nope. The only one who has been brainwashed is you Evanp. You don't even have any arguments for your belief and nor do you have arguments against God.
Good day indeed.
Quit bashing Atheists so much! Why should religious beliefs matter so long as you live with morality and empathy for everyone equally despite their backround
No one is bashing atheists. People are just presenting evidence against atheism in response to the atheists who visit this group. Christianity teaches that we must accept Christ in order to be saved. If we sat down and were quiet we wouldn't be doing our job.
Preaching is part of being a Christian and the atheists don't have to listen. They read the articles. We don't force them to.
So I can be an overall good person, but at that one point when i use the logical brain your god apparently gave me and come to a realization (that really doesn't much effect my life) that none of this religion crap matters- im suddenly excluded from the afterlife. Sounds like ancient chainmail to me
hey lets not fight, here is a good comprimise. how about we quite postind an-athiest articles and you quite posting anti-religious pics?
Never! **** Religion!
"Never! **** Religion"
"WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! I'M A BABY!"
Go back to your atheist group. Leave the adults alone. You're clearly incapable of a proper debate.
Atheism is a religion...
How many times must I say this: You sit in your corner, we'll sit in ours. We're got a great rollercoaster, you've got dodgem cars. I've got great hair. You don't. @_@
Seriously. You're the one stirring up trouble. And all that swearing is gonna make Henley's ban-finger itchy.
That would be very nice.
