    Is humanity less than 10,00 years old?

    For those that don't believe the above theory, where do you propose that all the races came from and how this came about?

    Is humanity less than 10,00 years old?

    I go with the theory that we started in Africa about 130,000 years ago and migrated north, east and west. as man traveled and habitated different regions and climates we took on different physical characteristics.

    Can Muslims be friends with Jews and Christians?

    If I am not mistaken, Jews, Muslims and Christians have enjoyed periods of peacefulcoexistence. Prior to the formation of Israel this was true and I believe there was a period in Spain at one point. It's a shame because while in Spain the three faiths worked together and shared ideas and beliefs...

    Why Do Men Have Nipples?

    I started a thread on this same subject. Did you read mine or did you actually ponder this yourself? I'm just curious. Pretty wild that two different people would be contemplating nipples at the same time.

    Did aliens once exist with humans?

    Taijasi, I didn't read your whole commentary. Did you mention Pleaidians? I think that is how it is spelled. I read a book about these extra terrestrials but it was over my head. Basically the author states that these are beings that are helping us in our spiritual evolution. She asserted that...

    Ezekiel's vision

    Some speculate that this vision by Ezekiel was of a UFO and aliens. To me it sounds as though he may have been in a trance when this occured.

    Gospel of Judas

    \ I may be wrong but I don't think the stories of Jesus as a child were Gnostic. They were apocrypha for sure but I don't think they were Gnosctic, however they may have heard of them.

    Gospel of Judas

    Actually I think Jesus spoke in parables for that very reason, he was imparting secret knowledge in a sense. He often implied that only a select few understood him. As far as Gnostics and secret knowledge, the type of knowledge they were speaking of was a personal knowing or experience with God...

    Gospel of Judas

    I tend to agree with you Path of one regarding the general Gnostic belief that all matter is bad and that the physical entrapment of the soul is evil. Although this does closely parallel the Christian notion of sinful nature and original sin. I do feel though that the spiritual being within us...

    Gospel of Judas

    What is important to remember and I think, the main point of revealing the Gospel of Judas, was that there were different versions of Christianity. As was said on NG sunday night, the 'Gnostics" didn't call themselves Gnostics, they felt they were Christians. It was the rival faction of...

    Gospel of Judas

    Well, I am definitely going to watch that program tonight. If one comes from the school of thought that Jesus knew he would be sent to his death to fulfill OT prophecies then it would make sense that he needed someone to give him up. Jesus seemed to pay special attention to the prophecies of...

    Do we (Muslims, Christians and Jews) believe in the same God or not?

    Here is another example of Jesus' distinction between himself and God imo. Luke 12:13-14. Someone in the crowd said to him, "Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me." Jesus replied, "Man, who appointed me a judge or an arbiter between you?" .

    Do we (Muslims, Christians and Jews) believe in the same God or not?

    I want to add to this discussion verses from Mark that are revealing of Jesus' real identity. I respect anyone's opinion that Jesus is God and only want to throw in my 2 cents. Mark 10:17-21 As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell to his knees before him. "Good teacher," he...

    "Racism"

    In my opinion racism isn't really about skin color. From my experience it is from bias based on cultural differences. Blacks and whites aside for the obvious reasons of slavery grate on each other for cultural reasons, which are really subcultures; social status, geographic location etc. Due to...

    The Bible.... word of God?

    I don't think it matters what language it is in with all due respect. The point being that an all loving God who created all and is all would not impose such manmade legalities on us and would certainly oppose slavery, repression of women and killing in any form.( by the way iI don't see the...

    The Bible.... word of God?

    This is probably an old arguement to some at this point but continues to interst me for some reason. I used to think that the Bible was the inerrant word of God and that to question it or challenge its authenticity was equal to sin and blasphemy. With that said I am completely certain at this...

    C.O.M.B.A.T.4Christ.com

    I would say that I was a little alarmed by this site. The name in itself is revealing even if the intent isn't to train kids to fight infidels. It may just be an after school recreational park but one can't dismiss the COMBAT in capital letters and the arm weilding the giant machete.:)

    liberal vs. literal Christian

    Good question Bandit. In all honesty I still like reading the Bible. I take the Bible literal in the sense that what I read I believe was truth to the individual that wrote it and the audience he wrote to. I think that the Bible is a beautiful piece of work that puts into words the feelings and...

    The Bible is historical and scientific

    Pico, I can't argue that many sites have been unearthed and proven to be accurate as far as the Bible describes them. Of this there is no doubt. I was referring more to the christian doctrine put forth and allegations of what Jesus said and what he actually meant. There are alot of...

    liberal vs. literal Christian

    Q, where is the Bible specific on the prerequisites of being saved? I would like to know when that was written also. What of those that didn't meet the prerequisites prior to their documentation? Were they to be held accountable for not having known prior to their death??
