I certainly will if I ever hear about it. I doubt that will ever happen, though, since the ravages of time I'm sure have taken their toll. Looks like mummification was lost with the ancient Egyptians, or it was unique to the North African climate. I don't personally have any need for Solomon's bone...

I am a Christian and really want to be able to go to church but it just isn't happening. It is to loud, to bright, to many people touching me, to much moving around, to many expectations, to many places where I am supposed to talk, and the list goes on and on. Then there are the issues of hypocrisy...

Ruveyn, you say NOTHING is verifiable. Even I have to admit some things simply have to be taken on faith. But NOTHING? The OT isn't alone in its historical account of figures such as King David and King Solomon. Archeology even affirms that. There is no extra-biblical documentation showing the exis...

This character Sand they keep shoving into the site seems a bit too abrasive to last too long. I have a hunch they might readjust him to become a born again Christian just to calm things down but I personally will be sorry to see him move in that direction. Are you kidding? That would be great! :wt...

I'll say it again: If the Bible is false, then there's no point to discussion. But since the Bible has proven to be verifiable Utter nonsense. The bible is essentially a book of homilies and bronze age fairy-tales. There is nothing verifiable about it. In fact if you take it seriously and literally...

How in earth can you know that the writers of the bible were able to preserve the intented meaning? How do you know at all what the intended meaning is? I take it you "know" the intended meaning because that's what you read from the bible... but if that was not the real thing how the heck are you s...

When I was in college, I didn't really "do" the bar/club scene. But in Mississippi, the bar/club scene is one of the last remnants of the racial/culture divide, so suffice it to say it never would have been in my best interest or safety to hang out in one. I didn't mind most bars. Bars were more for...

Anyone can take scripture and twist it to suit one's one purpose. Writers of the New Testament were knowledgeable of the spirit of OT teachings and were careful to preserve the intended meaning. No they weren't. Can you support that statement? I've already listed passages from three distinctly diff...

Using the Bible to protect women would also reflect bias. How? It would reflect a bias in favour of protecting women. The other way would reflect a bias against protecting women. Whatever one's point of view, it is extremely easy to find a few passages here and there to support one's point of view....

This kind of bias is not necessarily a bad thing, though. In a male-dominated society, it at least acknowledges that the treatment of women is a delicate matter and is at the very least an early attempt at leveling the playing field. I agree. We have to do something to give males a chance to bear c...

One group I like to pick on (watch out, I'm about lay some judgment on you! ;) ) are the Unitarian/Universalists. Since when am I a Unitarian Universalist? I was kidding. The judgment I was referring to was the tendency Christians are often accused of. I only meant, in a half-joking way, that judgm...

"Seek (God) and you will find (God)," Confirmation bias? :P Yes, if taken out of context! But that is a specific Biblical passage that is actually taken from two of the Gospels, one of which is Matthew 7:7-8, which says: Keep asking, and it will be given to you. Keep searching and you will find. Ke...

Using the Bible to protect women would also reflect bias. How? I'm interested in pandabear clarifying that statement, also. I don't agree with using the Bible to further any agenda other than it's own message, that is, a record of Israel's history, sacred writings of the Law and prophets, and the f...

Awesomelyglorious: It's does my heart good to see someone bring a sense of humor to the table! Humor is something often lost on me, so I apologize if I ever take things TOO literally. It is something I struggle with.

And I'm really not a bigoted person. I hate all races equally! :lol:

Even Jesus revealed that there would be anti-Christs after him, and warned of the dangers of false teachings. Even in the first few centuries of the faith, Gnosticism, in which the faithful must attain a certain body of mystical knowledge, arose, was examined, and eventually found as contrary to th...
