Yeah it almost seems like m273p15c is just here for the sole basis of arguing his "always is right opinion" based exclusively on literalist interpretations of bible verses, and that is the only way of seeking the truth. All one has to do is look at the shattered and fragmented history of the christ...

Re: is that an argument or an insult?

You are still quite wrong and reviewing the text and exactly what it says to the matter proves it. What you are doing is mere spin which is to be expected of you. What is this? What if I said that, "You are quite wrong and only spinning the subject, which is expected of you" ? Would that answer any...

Re: this is getting us nowhere!

And I find it interesting that some Christians whom I am close with will come to me asking me "Not to put that stuff in our young peoples heads" "It isn't right how you are getting them to question their faith with all of this human reasoning." This is prejudicial argumentation based on the "bad ap...

Re: who said their prior nakedness was a sin?

You are still quite wrong and reviewing the text and exactly what it says to the matter proves it. What you are doing is mere spin which is to be expected of you. Same as the individual who says that when the bible said that God created TWO lights the greater to rule the day and the lesser to rule t...

Re: we should back up...

Mark, Just because some atheist grew up in "fundamentalist" families, we should not assume that all "fundamentalist" religions are bad. Furthermore, we should not assume that it is bad to teach the truth to our children beginning at an early age. In fact, the Bible requires it, both by example and ...

*sigh* Again.... "And the eyes of them both were opened (present tense) and they knew that they were naked; (NEW Revelation of the fact, not that they had realized it as a problem the day before) ; and they sewed fig leaves together and made for themselves aprons." Why did they supposedly, according...

Re: flaw in fundamental premise

You are bending over backwards in order to attempt to make the bible correct when it just isn't as it applies to this story. "They knew the meaning of sin before they ate, but afterwards, they appreciated its full significance." Yet they had no problem whatsoever walking around naked before the tree...

Can Adam be held responsible?

To get the root of the question we must first establish some absolutes according to the document giving the account- the Bible. 1. Adam and Eve were the very first humans 2. Neither Adam nor Eve had the concept of Good and Evil before the fruit was eaten 3. They received the concept of good and evil...

Re: They SHOULD submit, but they don't.

Granted, when we listened to our wives instead of God, we asked for it. But that is beside the point, I acknowledge my place as Adam's son and I inherit his flaws. We've gone a bit farther than Adam. We've willingly made our women real partners, in the worst sort of way. Can you clarify this a bit?...

Re: I think you too are making my point

LRR, welcome to the forums. Thanks for your vantage. :-) I believe an undetected inconsistency remains in your logic. Based on my experience, most atheists retain some vestigial organ of past spirituality, whether it be their upbringing or just living in a society that is permeated by religion. For...

Where did you grow up? I was born in North Alabama and raised by my grandparents. My grandfather was a preacher for the Church of Christ and moved us to the Birmingham area for a while then we returned to North Alabama again and I graduated from a private Christian High School. How did you come to ...

Re: I think you missed my point, while making it for me

I recognize that you, xbc13, did not really come to debate the point. However, I do believe you misunderstood my point. To answer your question, I do believe your are much more than a mere animal, seeking to appease his desires. If you reread my first post, I believe you will see that was my very p...

In response to the original post... The atheist might believe that we or you, through your or our religion are an infringer of individual rights, much the same as the Muslim extremist who murders the "infidels" who to you are innocent. Would you not stand against those individuals because you see th...
