He must extend beyond himself and seek to understand the mind of the creator.

When considering the truth of a proposition, one is either engaged in an honest appraisal of the evidence and logical arguments, or one isn't. Religion is one area of our lives where people imagine that some other standard of intellectual integrity applies. It can't be said any clearer than that. This IS the reason faith is a conversation stopper.

Well said.

If people did not get something out of fabricating a belief system, they would not. The net costs are difficult for a person to calculate because the benefits are personal, but liabilities are cultural.

My impression is the Abrahamic cults have a level of insanity rather different from other belief systems. We may be laboring under this because one person, Herod, was both brilliant and quite simply insane. So it is, 2000 years later, we have this baggage threatening our survival.

One thing, morals only arise when there are two are more people.

I totally disagree.

I think that morality, like character, is best defined by what you do when you think no one is looking.

Nice post Nut!
"Every mind belongs to God," within the context of believing your own version of God, is basically a declaration of war. It is a mandate that others peacefully accept your wisdom and way of thinking, or else.... And history shows us many times over what comprises the "or else" part.

I concede to ur point. If you don't believe in a Creator, maybe you think you and your mind are a product without intention? Or maybe you have some other enlightenment? My point was merely a creative inspired impulse based on personal experience. You know, freedom of speech. I still don't understand how people can wage war over talk? Oh yea, hate.

Anybody watching Orphan Black?

Science fiction. Human cloning. Moral implications.

They're portraying Christians as crazy batshit freaks.

We're not so much into science fiction as you seem to be.

We're into what's REAL LIFE!

1500 year-old ‘ Syriac ‘ Bible found in Ankara, Turkey : Vatican in shock !


Ancient Bible in Aramaic dialected Syriac rediscovered in Turkey
The relic was ‘rediscovered’ in the depositum of Ankaran Justice Palace, the ancient version of bible is believed to be written in Syriac, a dialect of the native language of Jesus.

Ankara / Turkey – The bible was already in custody of Turkish authorities after having been seized in 2000 in an operation in Mediterranean area in Turkey. The gang of smugglers had been charged with smuggling antiquities, illegal excavations and the possession of explosives and went to trial. Turkish police testified in a court hearing they believe the manuscript in the bible could be about 1500 to 2000 years old.After waiting eight years in Ankara the ancient bible is being transferred to the Ankaran Ethnography Museum with a police escort.

Ancient Bible will be shown in Ankaran Ethnography Museum

The bible, whose copies are valued around 3-4 Mil. Dollars had been transferred to Ankara for safety reasons, since no owners of the ancient relic could be found.

The manuscript carries excerpts of the Bible written in gold lettering on leather and loosely strung together, with lines of Syriac script with Aramaic dialect. Turkish authorities express the bible is a cultural asset and should be protected for being worthy of a museum.

Ancient Bible in Aramaic dialected Syriac rediscovered in Turkey

Syriac is a dialect of Aramaic – the native language of Jesus – once spoken across much of the Middle East and Central Asia. It is used wherever there are Syrian Christians and still survives in the Syrian Orthodox Church in India and a village in the vicinity of Syrian capital Damascus. Aramaic is also still used in religious rituals of Maronite Christians in Cyprus.

Experts were however divided over the provenance of the manuscript, and whether it was an original, which would render it priceless, or a fake. Other questions surround the discovery of the ancient bible, whether the smugglers had had other copies of the relic or had smuggled them from Turkey.

Vatican eyes the faith of the ancient relic

The Vatican reportedly placed an official request to examine the scripture, which was written on pages made of animal hide in the Aramaic language using the Syriac alphabet.

The copy of the ancient Bible is valued as high as 40 million Turkish Liras ( 28 Mil. Dollars)



Apparently the Gospel of Barnabas claims Jesus wasn't crucified but ascended directly to heaven and that it was Judas who was actually crucified in his place.
