    Can the bible be taken literally?

    In response to your original question (name of your thread): YES! The Bible can be taken literally. But why would anyone want to do something that irrational? The human race evolved to the point where Galileo pointed out that the church and its teachings (which are derived from the Bible by...

    Be a homo or eat a lobster - same thing!

    The reason I thought the letter would be of interest is precisely because Christians DO claim to follow SOME of the few hundred laws presented in Leviticicus. This is why I thought the letter very amusing and thought it belonged in the politics and society forum. I don't believe the person who...

    Question Authority, ha ha ha Perhaps you jest or you may want to change your byline, QUESTION AUTHORITY? You want to suggest that two people, one of which is not even yourself, carry thier "pissing" contest someplace else? Since you speak with the tone of authority I'll play along. What...

    Gay Marriage

    As anyone can plainly see by reading my post without a chip on his shoulder, I simply asked for an explanation. Where did you see a challenge or are you just challenging me? Perhaps you are projecting your own impolite tendencies on another? Looking for a fight? If a moderator felt...

    From social commentary to monotheism, next on Oprah! For those of you who may be confused, the post, "be a homo or eat a lobster - same thing" has been moved from the politics and society forum to the the monotheism forum. I have written asking for an explanation in case anyone was looking for...

    What?

    Please explain why my post, "Be a homo or eat a lobster - same thing" is more suited for the MONOTHEISM forum than the POLITICS AND SOCIETY forum? The open letter is obviously a social commentary and not an actual request for spiritual advice. Thank you.

    Gay Marriage

    Be a homo or eat a lobster! Same thing. An "abomination" is an "abomination" is an "abomination." The Bible tells us that homosexuality is an abomination. But it also tells us that eating lobster is too. (See the preceding thread, "Be a homo, eat a lobster"). If you believe homos are...

    Be a homo or eat a lobster - same thing!

    I was recently sent the following. I know some of you will get a chuckle. Enjoy On Dr. Laura Schlessinger's radio show recently, she said that, as an observant Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination, according to Leviticus 18:22, and cannot be condoned under any circumstance. The...

    Pilgram had said: "you smell more like a "professional" (Susma's word not mine) apologist (my word not Susma's)." Of course, you must know, bb, that I can't really smell YOU through the internet. The "smell" was merely metaphor. Really, you are a sensitive fellow aren't you? In any case, as...

    Am I going away? Greetings Susma, Do you know something I don't? Am I going somewhere that you felt a need to give me your email address? Don't get me wrong, I'm honored that you have enjoyed our conversations enough to wish to stay in touch if I "disappear." I hadn't posted in about four...

    Rashi, Esquire and attorney at law has spoken! Greetings All, bananabrain has accused me of not having read the "explanation" of the "expert" he quotes. So, to be fair, I have set out the two verses in issue and then the quotation of bananabrain where he cites his expert. You be the judge...

    Greetings BB and All, It was never my intention to insult you. This is absolutely NOT what you said. What you said is: Originally Posted by bananabrain i am not disparaging logic - i am pointing out that what is a "valid" argument for you is not necessarily "valid" for others, as should be...

    You Shall Not Lend Upon Interest Greetings All, So here we are at the beginning again. I wonder how many people can read the following and not come to the conclusion that lending money at interest (usury) was forbidden by Jehovah? And if you read it differently please explain what you think...

    Your Moon Might Be My Sun!!! Greetings bb, How can I put this ... your grasp of the subject of logic and valid argumentation leaves something to be desired. A logical argument is not valid for one person and invalid for someone else like you'd like to believe. The most basic primer on...

    Greetings Art, I have no doubt that Iran treats minority religions in a most un-Moslemlike fashion. That's the problem living in a country that has no real separation of church and state. While Bahais are discriminated against, my guess is that other religions too suffer under Iran's...

    bananabrain, it is not in this string of posts where I asked you why you quote from different people without identifying who you are quoting. It is in the other post where you have done this. And you still did not explain WHY you would mix up the quotes of various people without notifying the...

    Greetings JJM, In an earlier post you wrote: "I never said that the bible didn't have flaws in fact I point one out in my last post. I just am trying to state that there is no evidence in the bible to support your argument. While of course the word of God isn't flawed the bible isn't the...

    Vajradhara says: Namaste pilgram, thank you for the post. Pilgram said: "Again, you italicized the term "positive" but I think I am beginning to see what you might mean. Correct me if I am wrong. If by "positive" you simply mean the one who first asserts something, then I agree that that...
