Why would God plant a Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil in the Garden in the first place? After E & A ate from it, they became like him. He must’ve been good and evil too. It didn’t seem to require much to become a god like him. What about the Tree of Life? He didn’t tell them not to eat from that. What if they had eaten from that first? He should have just let them eat from the Tree of Life afterwards, they would become immortal, then he would have had a couple of god friends to play with, a three-way or whatever. He was already playing hide and seek with them but it seems he didn’t like being IT very much, he got angry and acted a bit irrational by kicking them off the playground. What kind of idiot god would put the potential of good and evil and immortality in a couple of fruit trees, anyway? Now, you know that birds, insects and animals ate that stuff too ... it’s only Natural.

After careful consideration and thoughtful pondering these questions, I can only muster up this concise conclusion:

Who cares?

wink

Man this place got emotional over the past few days…


I bet being able to say that for a change feels good for you—turned tables and all.

But I am seriously interested in why a christian would think any non-christian “would actually be [...] interested in what Christians had to say [about christianity].”

“I thought atheists would actually be more interested in what Christians had to say ...”

We know what Christians have to say.  We’ve been hearing about it for 2,000 debilitating years.

We know.

We know.

WE KNOW!

We just find it to be false.

What do you think has been going on in this thread?  People responding to what you had to say. 

What more do you want?

You’re right, I shouldn’t complain.  Weak moment…

You are forgiven, my son.

Now go ye forth, and preach no more.

They’re all weak moments for you though, Clay, rationally speaking.

If you come to terms with that and stop struggling against your nature you’ll probably get your hypertension under control (or prevent/delay its development if it hasn’t manifest itself symptomatically yet).

Tagline


That’s a cheap shot, BBS, insinuating that Bruce B. is a racist. Even if I didn’t know the guy, which I do - and I am much more convinced of the soundness of his character than I am of yours-, it is clear from the paragraph you quoted that he is not using ‘nigger’ in a derogatory context, but rather the opposite.
