    All "bibles" have thier degree of accuracy and inaccuracy.
    That is a given.

    If the bible or ANY religious text was absolutely correct, the world would be a fucking huge roleplaying game, with wizards and priests and warriors and pretty much all character classes other than thieves, which are gay anyway.

    I mean, come on. We have miracles, we have evil wizards, we have angry gods, we have forbidden knowledge, we have demons, we have monsters, we have wars and evil kings...everything is in there.

    Anyone ever read the Mahabharata? Coolest D&D campaign ever written. Id say Pasupata is at least a 9th level evocation spell.

    Quiet the dog, tether the pony
    To a distant post;
    Our master Caesar is in the tent
    Where the maps are spread,
    His eyes fixed upon nothing,
    A hand under his head.

    That is fucking awesome WCL. I have used the same argument with Christians meself.

    +rep to you
    What am I?:

    I am ignorant, thieving, lying, hypocrital, violent and thoroughly self obssessed. I steal from others to make myself look better, only to make the item or information worse.

    I go on and on and ON about how brave and strong and brilliant and wealthy I am, but in the end I'm all mouth and no trousers.

    That's right children, I'm your average AMERICUNT! and I exemplify AMERICA!:911flag:

    Yes, through persistent lack of work and the cultivation of ignorance, he is a true American.

    I have been told there is someone's off-site backup copy floating around the net just in case you want to make sure you want to go see it first.

    Heh, once you see the bible as a sourcebook it all makes sense.

    Because miracles can be one of two things - a supernatural occurence or complete bullshit. I think most people here seem to be voting for the second.



    The word comes from wonder and that is just something which inspires awe.
    I'm sorry, I don't speak gibberish. Can you translate this sentence into English?



    If God is perfect and made the world/universe/natural laws, then why would he feel the need step in personally?
    If God can do anything, can He get out of his own RNC?


    Stop being gay everyone.
    Nice Christian attitude there dude.



    I think a better pole would be:

    Which is more correcter?
    I think you need less Bible study and more English grammar dude.

    The literal meaning of the word literal is "Consisting of, using, or expressed by letters", being the simplest and most obvious definition of the word.

    English doesn't make sense taken literaly. I doubt ancient hebrew was any better. Why should we care where the commas go in a bunch of dead shepards inconsistant folk stories?
