*cheers* Thats what I've been saying this entire time. There are outdated things in this world that a sadly large portion of people live their lives by, racial superiority, sexism, your vote actually meaning something(j/k), people who think scientists on the cutting edge are all atheists and sctrict interpritation of ancient scripts are just a few. These things produce laughter at best and "strange fruit" at their worst.Originally posted by Phobos@Jun 17 2004, 10:31 PM
Certainly the Bible is... antiquated at best, though it still serves as a good moral guideline in many respects and still contains messages that contain some relevance to today. Christianity is a faith, it isn't a book, though undoubtedly many Christians (and agnostics/athiests who are actively trying to promote their own sense of the divine, or lack thereof) would argue otherwise.
Oh and for those who find it a little too convieniant that God is placed beyond the laws of science. assuming there is a God then he invented science, correct? And humans have created video games, correct? The creation of the universe would follow the same basic guidlines as creating a video game, set out the basics of it and work your way up to the finished product (evolution). Now following your lines of logic if God is bound to the laws of sciene, we should be bound to the laws of video games (or lack there of) in the real world. So if you are correct the instant the first 2-D video game was created the universe as we know it should have become 2-D as well, but thats just how I see it.
Oh and the Story of the great flood is found in every culture world wide, so it's more than likly that some guy at some point knew that some bad stuff was going down, so he built a boat, gathered up some live stock, and laughed while everyone else drowned.
