Professing to be wise many have made fools of themselves by following the teachings of Charlie Darwin. The inside Joke among dedicated students of the Darwinian "Theory" (Notice I didn't say fact.) Is that there is no, I repeat no fossil evidence of any transitionary creatures. There are fossils of complete extinct species. But not one fossil among the billions and billions found was a transitional form of the animals we have today. So the evolutionists cling to their story hoping for a fossil to someday be found to support their leggless theory. Or they have rejected it in favor of an outer space seeding of the earth at some point in our distant past. This doesn't answer the question of where we came from, It just pushes it out into outer space some where, where the truth will never have to be faced until our benevolent earth seeding aliens return someday. I submit that perhaps He has already returned once to a manger in Bethlehem and we didn't recognize Him when He came. Perhaps it was because he didn't carry a ray gun. He has promised to come back, His other predictions have all come to pass and no doubt this one will too. The question is will you be ready for His next visit to Planet earth?
Professing to be wise many have made fools of themselves by following the teachings of Charlie Darwin.
There they go calling people "fools" again, just like that hypocrite Jesus who said that to call someone a fool could earn more than a life sentence in the flaming pits of Hell. This same Jesus later called people fools (and even devils) simply for disagreeing with him.
And these hostile Christian writers almost always place the accusation of "fool" in the first words of the first sentence.
By His fruit ye shall know Him: Doth an embittered, hypocritical god bring forth embittered, hypocritical disciples?
Conclusion: If someone calls you a fool you're definitely talking to a Christian.
Darwin is not opposite of Jesus so why the little fish with legs?
The little "fish" with legs is supposed to represent an amphibian. Darwin does not represent the opposite of Jesus, but represents one of many elements in the more accurate and more useful replacement for the highly destructive Jesus myth. The Darwin Amphibian is moving from left to right -- forward on the timeline -- while the Jesus Fish is moving from right to left -- backwards on the timeline. This is significant seeing that many Christians want to take our culture back to the dark ages, and seeing that Christianity has consistently opposed any and all advances in science. The one exception is when those advances later turn out for the good of all; in which case, the Christians almost always give their god retroactive credit for having "inspired" scientists to find the cure, etc. Never mind that the Christian god spent thousands of years keeping such knowledge hidden from man before he allegedly inspired a hard-working scientist to discover it.
The inside Joke among dedicated students of the Darwinian "Theory" (Notice I didn't say fact.) Is that there is no, I repeat no fossil evidence of any transitionary creatures.
There go those sneaky objects of paranoid conspiracy theorists again, hiding the facts and laughing behind our backs.
(What kind of mind does it take to come up with this stuff?)
Even if evolution is only theory (it isn't), and even if there were no transitory fossils (there are plenty of them), how does it then follow that Jesus is a god? What happened to Allah, Jehovah, Brahma, Krsna, Quetzalcoatl, Thor, Ra, Apollo and the others? and what about all the goddesses?
The question is will you be ready for His next visit to Planet earth?
Show me there is a god and then show me that that god is Jesus. Do it in a polite discussion that does not resort to false science, but remains within the realm of truth.
As it stands, I have just been given further reason to disbelieve Jesus, because one of his followers used false science (and emotional terrorism, to boot: "will you be ready?") to try to persuade me to believe that Jesus is a god. What kind of god is that who allows his followers to lie in his name and for his purposes?
(some material borrowed from C. Dennis McKinsey's Encyclopedia of Biblical Errancy)
Here is what we are dealing with:
Proof Jesus existed: "Jesus was numbered in a Roman Census."
As if we have those records today, to verify this novel argument for the historicity of Jesus. No. There are no independent accounts of Jesus' existence until well after the Gospel accounts had had time to circulate, several decades after Jesus is alleged to have existed.
It is our hope that no one de-converts to atheism on this little forethought.

Glad you are so interested in finding out the answers to some of the Bibles seeming contradictions. First, pleese get yourself a more accurate and up to date translation of the Bible. Stop living in the past. The King James version was written with King James English to people over 200 years ago, admittedly and sadly some things were hard to translate from the original greek and hebrew texts into King James English. Fortunately we still have surviving copies of the original Greek and some Hebrew Texts dating to 175 BC. I recommend The New American Standard Bible as a good starting place.
First you claim Jesus to be a highly destructive Myth? His chief commands were "Love your neighbor as yourself"and "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". I fail to see the destructive element there. Don't confuse what men have done quote un-quote in "His Name" with Jesus the person and his message. He said at the judgement many will stand before him claiming to have done all kinds of things in "His name" but He won't buy their arguement because they didn't obey his command to Love. They didn't know Him because he is love. Matt 7:21-23
A Myth? Jesus was numbered in a Roman Census. We know for a fact that he was actually here. Not only the Bible records his presence on Earth. We live in the year of our Lord 1997. His birth and resurrection are celebrated yearly by over a billion followers worldwide. This man who never held a public office, never wrote a book, only lived 33 years on earth, never walked more than 75 miles from his hometown, never owned a home or property. How could this one single man so change the course of Humanity? Don't you think the Roman Empire with all its might or the Jewish religious leaders would have produced His bruised dead body to disprove the ressurection if they could have.
As to evolution being a fact, sorry still a theory. No evidence. The Fossils say no. As to plenty of transitional fossils, name one and tell us all where it is located. There are complete fossils of all the creatures within "Kinds" for instance horses, canines,birds,felines, amphibians, but there are no complete skelton fossils of a transitionary creature. For instance a worm growing eyes to become a snake. Did I say it was a sneaky conspiracy , or that they are laughing behind our backs? No, they are laughing in nervousness because they can't come up with a transitionary fossil to prove their theory.
Was Jesus a hypocrite for saying not to call someone a fool and then doing it Himself? Not at all. First of all he said not to call your "Brother" a fool. Matt 5:22 Brother means a family member, and the word translated "fool" was the Greek word "RACA" and mean't "utterly worthless" . What was translated "fools" when Jesus addressed the teachers and pharasee's in Matt 23:17 was the greek word "Moros" which mean't "dull, heedless, blockheads" He told them the truth!, but he didn't say they were "utterly worthless". So don't use this "Jesus was a hypocrite" arguement any more because you haven't done your homework.
Was I in danger of Hellfire for using the word fools? No, I wasn't talking about any brother of mine. I was merely quoting loosely from Romans 1:22-23 Where the word mean't simpletons or "You been fooled son!" 2 Cor 4:4.
As to all your other meanwhiles: I'll answer a couple but hey, it's not that difficult to figure out, using less than half your brain and a modern translation and a hebrew concordance. I couldn't find one contradiction in any of the things you questioned or why most of them would matter in the eternal scope of things. I got a few questions for God myself that I'm sure He will answer for me when I get to heaven but none of them seriously affect me deciding if whether " I should love my neighbor as myself" is a good idea or not. Is there one God or Many? Genesis 1:26-27 God as revealed in scripture is clearly a tri-une being, with one intent and in perfect harmony and cooperation, The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. So in this instance God the Father was talking to Jesus and the Holy Spirit . See also John 1:1-3, John 10:30, Psalms 110:1. He is a spiritual being living in another dimension outside of, and yet able to interact with our dimension of time and space. This is possible because he created the dimension of time and space. God the Father doesn't have flesh and bones. John 4:24, Luke 24:39 so we must have been created in His image as eternal spiritual beings. He asked Isaiah "To whom will you liken or compare me". Different root word , different situation, here he was asking which of the man made idols was his equal, I fail to see the connection.
I think your arguements are just so much smoke thrown out behind your getaway car as you speed away from God. I don't think you have ever truly sought Him at all.
Cliff, have you ever sought God with all your heart? No, Really? He said you would find Him in the day you seek for Him with all your heart. Which means, put a little effort and sincerity in your prayer. "God if you are really there, please reveal yourself to me.".
If You think the Question "Will you be ready? for Christ's return "is "terrorism". You are certainly entitled to your opinion, it clearly tells Jesus where you stand. To those billions of us who are ready, it's not a scary thought at all . Matt 24:44
Remember, He's only a prayer away
