it just told us to belive it.


if the harry potter books would tell the reader to believe in harry potter.
do you believe in harry potter then?

shouldn't you use your own mind instead of doing what a book tells you to do?

The Bible is not a fantasy, it is a story that gives you real events of what happened, is happening, and what is to come.

The Bible, bringing to mankind "real" events such as:

Dirt Man!
Rib Woman!
Talking Snakes!
Incestuous relationships from the start of mankind!
More water above the ocean than in it!
A boat with more space inside than volume would allow!
A burning bush!
Rivers of blood!
Splitting oceans!
Bears mauling children and more!

Sounds like a circus act to me.

We don't know how Noah managed to keep or control all this animals in the ark, and we never will because we are not Noah.


Or how they all fit on the ark, or where all the water got to, or how the ark could manage too survive these conditions, or how marine life survived the change of salinity, or how such a flood left no geological evidence, or how our genetic diversity would not allow for any fewer than a population of 10,000 people to exist yet we all came from 8 people, or how we got the genetic diversity of any of the other species on the planet for that matter, or how so many cultures only a few generations removed from this even just completely forgot about not only this happening but God as well, ...

But the Bible never told us to understand this, it just told us to belive it.


Worse yet it's asking this without providing evidence, which is despicable.

The Bible is not a fantasy,


"Fantasy is a genre of fiction that commonly uses magic and other supernatural phenomena as a primary element of plot, theme, or setting" -wiki

It doesn't appear to be distinguishable from fantasy.

Who exactly are you talking about with being uneducated?

And by that I mean there are hundreds of thousands of Christian Scientists!


Your point is...? Just because someone is a Christian and a scientist doesn't make unfounded claims any more valid. It's actually kind of sad, if the Christian scientist doesn't accept well established theories like evolution because of their beliefs (not saying that they all are like this). It just shows a bias, pure and simple, and casts any research they do into doubt because they are willing to compromise reality for the sake of unfounded beliefs.

Jesus Loves you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Please don't spam.

I am Mormon and I know it


Thanks for letting us know you know what you think?

See people you guys haters.


Grammar no present me no understand well. Please, at least put a little thought into what you're saying.

God be with you till we meet agin. Amen!!


Again, what was the point of you posting this?

I don't mean to be condescending, truly. The fact of the matter is though, if you're just going to post things like "God loves you!" and "I'm a Christian!" please don't post. This is a debate thread and randomly declaring such things is spam at worst and annoying at best.

How do you know he is/was real?

And all of you guys who do not go to church and don't wan't to go. Do what the guy did who wrote the first post did get that felling and join a good church and know the felling is not gas.


I was raised as a Christian. I was forced to go to church. The only thing I ever felt was boredom and incredulity. Any such "good feelings" like helping the community or fun events...those have nothing to do with God. You can get those same feelings without church.
