Could you tell me the exact year the Bible says the world was created? I'm not positive on the date, but I know it somewhere from 6,000bce to 3,000bce. I know it's a fairly recent number, and it is impossible, based on that number, for all of those events to have taken place. The dinasours ruled the earth for thousands and thousands of years. A flood isn't what killed the dinasours either, because all land organisms would have died, as well. There is no way such a drastic event as the Ice Age could occur in such little time. Mountains can't change so greatly in such little time as the Bible suggests. Then after all of these changes, which must have occurred in a span of time of about 2-3 thousand years, the Egyptians start to flourish and create their pyramids. I was using the recent even of the pyramids to show exactly how much time must have been given for the rest of these huge events to have taken place. Don't you think it seems not only higly unlikely but impossible for all of those events to have taken place in such little time?Quote:
Well we have the flood witch would of killed of the dinasours. The ice age was shortly after this. Mountains have changed shap slowly, the pyramids were build only a few thousand years ago.
Yes, intellignce has a lot to do with how you treat others. You don't kill another person for no reason at all, because you know that you won't benefit from it. Like Clyde said, working together as a society and using our combined intelligence is much more beneficial. Not harming another person when you gain nothing from it is pretty much simple logic.Quote:
Intelligence has nothing to do with how you treat others, inteligently I would say we should just go and kill all the people of the middle east.
No, but do you think it's easy being a Jew in Israel? Do you think it was easy being a Jew during the Holocaust? IMO, if we're going to talk about people who were willing to risk their lives based on their religion, then lets talk about the Jews. Again this proves your point wrong that Christians are willing to risk themseleves more. It's not a matter of the religion; it's a matter of the strength and determination of the person's heart.Quote:
Do you think it was easy to be a Christiain in ancient Rome? If your faith is bassed on what others think around you then why call it faith.
Another completely unrelated reply.Quote:

The rest of the comments that I didn't reply back to were pretty well explained by Clyde, so I have no reason to reply back to the rest of them.
