|Death VS God|

This is an indepth take down of the bible, and hopefully, at the end you can find peace within yourselves, rather than a book about a god who doesnt exist.
2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
3 And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and He separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.27 So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.
28 God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground."
Great job day one....just one very big problem here....and for the next 5 days until he creates man.... no one witnessed this.
Now....if it had been me....I would create a man and women....and said..."now watch this sh1t"....then made heaven and earth and all the rest of the rubbish.

Now the LORD God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed. 9 And the LORD God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
10 A river watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into four headwaters. 11 The name of the first is the Pishon; it winds through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12 (The gold of that land is good; aromatic resin [e] and onyx are also there.) 13 The name of the second river is the Gihon; it winds through the entire land of Cush. [f] 14 The name of the third river is the Tigris; it runs along the east side of Asshur. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.
NOW...we take this area....lay it out on any map....and we have a desert...which has been a desert for millions of years....great job there dude....surely Jamaica or Hawai were better locations for paradise?

But for Adam [g] no suitable helper was found. 21 So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man's ribs [h] and closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib [i] he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
23 The man said,
24 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.
25 The man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.
Why not just wave the magic wand, do your dance and HEY PRESTO....women...why try justify the sexual act by claiming one is from the other and they need to join in sex to become one...sex is just that...sex

1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God really say, 'You must not eat from any tree in the garden'?"
2 The woman said to the serpent, "We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, 'You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.' "
4 "You will not surely die," the serpent said to the woman. 5 "For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."
A naked women talks to a snake.....about a tree in a perfect place. Now if we eat of this tree, we become like god, knowing good and evil. Why plant it in the first place....why tempt man? And if this place was the perfect creation, and god created all, he created evil too? For if all things are of god....surely good and evil are parts of the same almighty power.

"NOW...we take this area....lay it out on any map....and we have a desert...which has been a desert for millions of years....great job there dude....surely Jamaica or Hawai were better locations for paradise?"
that is wrong, the area around the Tigris and Eufrate used to be very good for cultivating ... hence, one of the oldest civilizations known to us, spawned there ... (remember climatic improvements, and continental drift, etc ...)
(maybe pick a better source than wikipedia ;-) and check what your saying yourself :-p )
|14:19:52 Apr 18th 09 - Lord Primate Death:|
21 The LORD God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. 22
And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing
good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take
also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever." 23 So the LORD God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. 24 After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side [e] of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.

Shut up you fool....that area has been arid desert for over 100m years...the civilization you talk of were goat farmers....and I dont use wikipedia....I use my own common sense which says the middle east has and never will be a fertile area.
|14:24:53 Apr 18th 09 - Mr. Formatieduiker:|
your own common sense is obviously flawed ...
|14:42:59 Apr 18th 09 - Mr. Josef:|
FFS I can't beleive that I'm playing devils advocate, but disproving the bible, something easy to do, does not disprove God, it's just a logical nonposibility.
|14:47:22 Apr 18th 09 - Lord Primate Death:|
The area you talk of as "paradise" is the modern day Iran. Its great civilizations, the Mesopotamiams...or modern Iranian...would have noticed that they got some good soil in a tiny area where 2 of the 4 rivers are mentioned, had a look around and found our flaming angel guy.
|14:50:30 Apr 18th 09 - Lord Primate Death:|
Josef....the proof of Gods existance is in his words...the bible. Disprove it all as a fairy tale, written to keep the uneducated living in fear of eternal damnation, by its authors....more than likely leaders of the ancient Judaic sects that formed the basis of the modern day Judaic religion.....now i will continue tearing the bible up page by page, then when that is done, they cannot point to that for his proof of existance. When thats done, I will go through the historical and philosophical reasons for his non existance, and finally the scientific destruction of the creationist theory.
|14:53:58 Apr 18th 09 - Mr. Josef:|
That is only if you think everybody believes God is strictly the one described in the bible, which I grant you many people actually do, but many other deists believe in a more... distant... I guess is a good word, distant God, that has nothing to do with the Bible or the stories in it.
|15:10:16 Apr 18th 09 - Lord Primate Death:|
to win the war, you fight each battle. I will take this merciful, all knowing all seeing being down battle by battle. I am starting with the fairy tales and urban legends that are the bible.

Did you go to high school? Cause from what I remember about the history of the Middle East..is that the Tigris/Euphrates river system was once one of the most fertile pieces of land ever known. The problem is that Iraq is suffering from soil salination and desertification (thus meaning it was once NOT a desert) and that the reason for this was that the area was OVERFARMED for thousands of years. I think I learned that in eighth grade. :(

If you have ever been to Iran...then you will know the region described very well. The region referred to in the bible is known as the plateu marshlands. It would be fertile...very fertile indeed, were it not for the single commodity that made the region wealthy. go back to school son, and find out why salt was the most valued of all our resources. There are high concentrations of salt and sulphate in the soil. Salt-encrusted land simply cannot absorb new water and the mixture of water into high sulfate areas would be toxic. Hence the salt was mined, and used as our first natural source of food preservation, critical to a group of tribes hell bent on starting wars.

The supply of water is
not regular; as a result of the high average temperatures and a very
low annual rainfall, the ground of the plain of latitude 35° N is hard
and dry and unsuitable for plant cultivation for at least eight months
in the year. Consequently,
without risk of crop failure, which seems to have begun in the higher
rainfall zones and in the hilly borders of Mesopotamia in the 10th
millennium bc, began in Mesopotamia itself, the real heart of the civilization, only after artificial had been invented, bringing water to large stretches of territory through a widely branching network of canals.

If you want to highlight something, use yellow. Green is impossible to read unless you highlight that crap with your mouse. >.<
Speaking of salt, I remember reading that the Romans finally got sick and tired of Carthage and their crap after the third Punic war and spread salt all around their fertile areas. =D
|06:07:23 Apr 20th 09 - Mr. Killstone:|
the bible amy have been written by humans but inspired by God.
two words: fertile cresent
what the heck does that have to do with anything? that doesnt disprove anything
The earth was perfect because sin had not yet entered the world. God created the tree to tempt humans because he wanted them to be able to have free will and disobey him if they desired to. God created the knowledge of good and evil it obviously existed before because the Devil and his demons all became evil.
the Trinity one God in three parts. The Father the Son and the Holy Spirit. Now youll say there are three Gods there but there isn't its the same as a woman being a mother wife and sister. a woman can be a mother but not married she can be married but not be a mother she can be married but not a sister and she can be a motehr and not a sister. The Father the Son and the Holy Spirit are all God but The Father is not the Son and the Son is not the Holy Spirit. http://www.gotquestions.org/images/trinity.jpg
now instead of verses sicne i now that wont persuade you ill use science to give evidence to atleast a being who was incharge of the amking of this earth.
Look at the atmosphere. theres the ozone alyer which ahs nitrogen gas and ozone and otehr chemicals to break up the harmful rays fro mthe sun. Ozone is poisonous to humans but the ozone alyer is up in the sky where no humans breath air. Down where we breath there is oxygen but not too much. and then some otehr gasses some of whic hare poisonous but not in as low concentration as it is. then the majority of the air is amde of nitrogen which does not affect us animals or palnts. then there are the plants and single celled organisms which take away the CO2 we breath out and replenish the O2 in the atmoshpere.
now lets move on the the interesting topic of H20 aka water. Water is one of if not the only substance to expand when it freezes. sicne it expands ice flaots on water creating an insulation to the animals that live in water. This insulation prevents all the sea and water animals in colder cliamtes from dying each winter.
Atoms: waht makes up the nucleus of an atom? protons and neutrons. Now elts think about this for a minute protons are positively charged and cuetrons have no charge. if like charges repel each otehr then how does the nucleus stay together? correct! through the strong force! how does the strong force work? no one knows! its a natural phenomenom.
Flagella on some single celled organisms. it is amde up of tons and tons of small intricate parts so that it can work perfectly. through all the years which humans have existed the best we came up with are engines and propellers. even the best engines are only 40% efficient. flegellas are way more efficient than that.
Man made eco systems. Humans have tried to make their own ecosystems which have no contact with the otuside world. they control the atmosphere the palnts animals and all the environment. have any of them succeeded? nope all failures. if we cant make our own ecosystem to work how could this perfect ecosystem all come about by chance?
The earths position. if the earth were to be something as small as .2% closer to the earth if i recal correctly it would become to hot to live on. if the earth was .2% farther away form the sun again if i recall correctly then it would be too cold to live on. thats some pretty percise locationing.
now if you think about all those scientific facts i dont understnad how it is even remotely possible to see how it all came about by chance. everything in nature works together in perfect harmony. i could throw a bunch of gears up on a board randomly but unless i creatively placed them on the board so that all the cogs fit in with each other it would not work properly.
have you ever heard about the age old question: if you give a million monkeys a million typewriters and give them a million years. would one of them write the entire works of shakespeare? statistically speaking now they wouldnt. to write the letter "a" with spaces surrounding it jsut by randomly hitting buttons would be insane! if you had jsut the 26 english letters and a space bar (a total fo 27 keys) the chances of typing the letter a with spaces around it by randomly hitting the buttons would be 1 chance in 27^3 or 1 in 19683. the chances to write "my name is killstone" with the 27 keys would be 1 in 27^20 or 1 in 42,391,158,275,216,203,514,294,433,201 thats 42.391 octillion. youd have a better chacne at taking Bill Gate's entire fortune in pennies taping a piece of paper to one of the pennies mixing that penny in with the otehr 8.6 trillion or so pennies and picking out that penny with the paper on it.
waht i msaying is if a million monkeys cant type the entire work of shake speare in a million years because they do not have any creative mind behind it then how could this perfectly harmonious world which us humans (homo sapiens [our genus and species name] which means wise humans in latin) cant duplicate by chance even if it had a trillion years?
i wont reply or look in this thread again because if you still dont believe me then nothing i say will be able to change your mind
PS excuse the typos and the length

darwin, if he were alive today would ssay his ideas on evolution are incorrect. why? because in one of his books he said "if an organism is found that could not be made over time one part by one aprt then my theories are incorrect." and the flegella is adme of a ton of different proteins and without one of those it woud not work correctly.
thats it. nothing more in order to actually "proove" soemthing as much as science can you have to use ideas and knowledge that has tons and tons of evidence behind them. evolution does not, you dont know that the atmosphere was different tons of years ago.. all the stuff i talked about is common knowledge
|15:38:47 Apr 20th 09 - Mr. Josef:|
Did you read the text at the link I posted for this irreducibly complex problem? No, you didn't since if you did you'd already have your answer. The flagella is not even irreducible as pointed out in my link, here let me quote it to you since you're much to scared to read something that will prove you wrong.
|15:45:51 Apr 20th 09 - Mr. Josef:|
What's your next trick? Are you going to give me the eye as irreducibly complex, or perhaps wings? I'm waiting to see what your religion addled mind comes up with next.

LOL, Josef, can you not accept a defeat? all of your talk is "what if" and "maybe", how do you know this universe was not place here on purpose? were you there? how do you know life evolved, were you there looking down on life as it happened? Where did you get all your information? oo i know! You got it from man. News flash buddy, the human minds are flawed!!

So....once I kill God, Killstone, I vow I will come back to shoot holes in the most ridiculous of posts. Right now...im working out the real statistical probability of the earths proximity to the most stupid person on it.
|17:21:31 Apr 20th 09 - Mr. Paracelzus:|
so it's obvious you don't go around looking at all the data, you are just like those scientist at NOVA for instance. They only look at what they want to look at, they are not true scientists. Scientist are supposed to look at ALL of the data supporting or disclosing a theory. And your evolution theory is FLAWED! God however is not flawed, so you have nothing against us. and i bet your are going to say something like, "How do you know God lead the writers of the books of the bible" and i will respond with this:
|17:22:36 Apr 20th 09 - Mr. Paracelzus:|
wow, that was a killer post primate! You almost made me rethink all of life itself!
