This confused me. Eat drink and be merry was because his doom was EXTREMELY imminant. Not millions of years later. I had to have missed something somewhere cause I am left scratching my head at this comment.

There is nothing that says you shouldn't "question" in the bible. In fact, it encourages it to better your faith. I've personally been toying with the notion that we all go to heaven and the bible is used as a guideline to keep us on the straight and narrow. View your relationship with your kids as that of one with you as the child and God as your father...when you do that, how can you send your children to eternal damnation? But you try to set guidelines for your kids to follow by to be better people. Hell, we even lie to our kids about Santa Claus etc because of how we feel it will better them. So if we can do that, how come God can't give us a guideline / handbook to try to live by?
You also need to keep in mind, while we as a species are intelligent, we are not all knowing. To me, undeniable proof of His existance is the fact that we are here. The body is amazingly complex, beyond comprehension even. No soul / existance of a life has ever been found in a body, yet we know it to be there. That's just a human, what about the billions of other organisms on this planet, or the solar system, or beyond?
I think you might mistake anyone that speaks about God / religion as trying to push their views, and some do, I am not though. You can believe what you want. I know there is absolutely nothing I can say that will change your mind, or several others on this site. I am merely stating my belief and you can take it or leave it. It's a pleasure to have conversation sometimes, and the questions posed to each other can and do bring good discussion.
-No sarcasm it was a genuine question.

-Wars are waged over faith. Faith to any extreme is dangerous.

-I'm just stating my view as well, I'm not trying to be right or wrong. Just looking for good discussion as well.

Re: Life After People (History Channel)

Yeah, this thread took one toke over the line.

I think the people who created that show are playing to the people who hate being alive, the environmentalist. That's just what I think. Some people will watch this show and feel good that the "Bitch" so-called mother Earth is renewing herself and those pesky humans are gone.

Human being are the most dominant species on this planet apart from insects and micro-organisms. We've endured a lot of shit. It would take a lot to take us out. Who's to say we're the only humans in this galaxy or the universe anyway?

I don't worry about the world ending. It's ended many times already and been reborn. So f**k it! The movie knowing dealt with this same topic and it had a very good ending. That bitch Earth got fried and humans still survived.

Oh, that show said that soon after humans were gone there would be no trace of us being here. Time fears the Pyramids. So suck eggs environmentalists!

Most wars are fought over money or land. Faith is just a tool for the leaders to manipulate the populace to fight.

Good to know.

Respectfully disagree sir. The bible, for instance, is clear about not killing, so wars waged over "alleged faith" is human based, not faith based. God, nor Jesus has ever told us humans to kill in his name. Those that do it, are not following His path. A lot of people use this as an excuse to not look at the bible (not saying you are, just point out it's a common argument) but in actuality wars are waged due to PEOPLE not getting along with other PEOPLE. I can go to war with the USA and blame the Warpath for it...that doesn't make it so.

Sounds good. So far so good. Hope this doesn't take a bad turn. Religion is always touchy.

Sorry buddy but the old Testament God and the New Testament God are like night and day, just ask a Jew. The Old Testament God told Joshua to go into Canaan and kill every last person including the women and children. To not kill is a bad King James translation. The original is Thou shall not murder. If killing was a sin then God would be a sinner. He killed people in the Bible himself.

Sounds like you have a serious issue with "mother earth". You need to keep in mind, if Earth does expel us from it's surface, it's because we abused it.

I would argue that if Christ's resurrection was indeed a hoax, we are not pitiful, but lived a good life and we are all worm food anyway so it won't matter.

I guess you were using it to say not to be scared, but my response was directed at you saying a person living for Christ would not be pitiful. Clearly, if you are living and directing your life based on a fallacy then others would call that pitiful.

OK, I get your point. Sorry I missed it before.
I still don't see it as "pitiful", but someone must live their life for something right? I think those that live it with no direction or purpose...well that's pitiful. But to each his own right?

I would agree with you on that. and of course, I do believe Christ rose, so the argument becomes moot.

How many religions use SOLELY the old testament. We have been discussing Christians, and as such, the new testament comes into play. Although, you made a very good point. You made me think on that one.

This kind of ignores that the Old Testament was around for atleast 2000 years before the New Testament was written, and that Jesus himself said that the he did not come to take away the Law (the Old Testament), or that God says he is never changing, in other words, he didn't just flip a switch at 200 AD when the NT was being put together and change the meanings. To murder is a sin, not to kill. And this difference has let lots of wars and blood be spilled "in the name of God". Muslims also refer to the OT, and the NT along with their Koran.
