MTJohn said "The fault, however, does not rest with the sacred texts - it rests with the people who have misused the texts. "

The fault rests with the fact that these "sacred texts" are written in man's language. Man's language is incomprehensive. Even worst than when they are edited and translated. Worst even still, when we have fought a great number of times over which books should even be included, often ending in a split in religion as was the case when Martin Luther took 13 books out of the Catholic Bible, and created the Protestant Bible.

There is a lot wrong with the Bible.

lkeithlu A theory is not a precursor to a law in science.

Haha, you're right. I always get Theory and Hypothesis mixed up. Easy to do considering the english language has two definitions for "theory" (which is actually my point about the human langage being fallible.

TPliske said... Religions were not started by Kings, Emperors and rulers; religion is the byproduct of the human development of consciousness.

Not correct. You are talking about spirituality. There is a difference between spirituality and religion. Spirituality is the consciousness of which you speak. Religion is the archaic form of politics created by Rulers, Kings, and Emperors.

  • Constantine, a Pagan Roman emperor, created the Bible during the Council of Necia.
  • King Henry the 8th, created the Church of Rome because he no longer wanted to answer to the pope. He wanted to kill and divorce as he wished.
  • King James, rewrote the bible based on the outcry's of his subjects. He locked monks in a dungeon until they had translated the Vatican codex. Coincidently, it is during this time that the Book of James was renamed. He placed the name James in the Bible because he wanted his name to appear in it.
    I could go on for a while, but religion is a man made institution which looks to structure spirituality, for political gain.

Religion has been the straps which has created slaves of humanity. ALL Religions were started by Kings, Emperors, and other rulers. The rulers were men. They were ignorant. They were greedy. They do not care about your eternal soul. When they compiled the Bible, the Qu'ran, or any other religious text, they could care less if it was to benefit your spirituality. They only cared about one thing, how well they could use the books to control you. The Bible is an instrument of control, it is the leather lash which is used to hold you down, to enslave you.

EaTn said I believe science is evidence of the mystery and creativity of God, whereas others spin it to reject God.

Others who reject God, are correct to do so. They are not rejecting an all powerful being. They are rejecting your ability to understand it. Human beings are ignorant meat monkeys. 2 thousand years ago, they were even more ignorant than they are today (hard to believe, I know... but at least education has helped the mental evolution of the species) The books that humans cling to for religious guidance, were nursery rhymes dumbed down to the level of humans thousands of years ago. God is not a man with a grey beard sitting on a cloud pointing his finger down at the Earth. People should reject this idea of God. People should reject religion. Both these things are of the ignorance of humans. Religion is built by the GREED of the Emperors, Kings, and Rulers who created religion as a way of controlling their subjects.

EaTn said... I find it both amusing and sad that many folks spend their entire lives either rejecting or trying to disprove God with nothing to gain, everything to lose and never knowing whether they were right or wrong until they die.

I would love to disprove your idea of "God" Your idea of God has been the reason that humans have been forced into ignorance. We have been held back from scientific discoveries until rise of the atheist. Religion and humans thoughts of God have also been an excuse for war, death, and destruction for thousands of years.

Religion, the Bible, and ever physical thing man by man and put in man's language, is ignorant. Man's language is not vast enough to have a complete sense of everything within the universe and the forces behind the universe. The Bible is a great book with some great stories, but to claim the Bible or any other religious text is the word of God, is self-rightous and narcissistic bull-crap.

Blockquote lkeithlu said... Scientific theories are never PROVEN.

Until they become a Scientific Law. Never say never, all scientific laws started out as theories. Your theory is debunked.

keithlu said... Physicists understand it [gravity] very well.

No, they don't, they theorize about it very well. Truth is gravity does still remain a mystery. Newton said it's a force, Einstein says it is the bending of time and space around the Earth. Both are unproven theories.
