I love God, a more oppressive and brutal dictator than any other the world has ever known. Really, it'd be best to but that "don't have to" in quotes. *God creates universe* *God creates beings in universe for a purpose* *Beings reject purpose* *God warns them that doing so will have grav...

You’d think that the Pharaoh after that would have decided not to record that horrible fiasco, which shames his dynasty. Egyptians are not above historical revisionism if they have to. Any record may have been destroyed either by time or by the Pharaoh’s orders. Though there are sources still, as s...

So easy, it's never been done.


It's been done numerous times in this very thread. Indeed, it's generally done almost the instant that someone defines what they mean by "god".

Not no mention the ten damm plagues god hit them with/ The first nine of the plagues were most likely a natural chain reaction caused by something happening down river in the Nile. Which, again, didn't happen. Dust turning to gnats is a figure of speech, after all. If you look at the order of the p...

I have been here since page 1, and I have read all the pages thus far, and there has been no evidence to prove the existence of a God. Nor will there be. It's sort of a fundamental truth of religion/philosophy/science etc, that the existence of God can neither be conclusively proven or disproven. N...

Agreed,as long as you stop making up documents that do not exist. Or provide them ofc. That would also work. Josephus, a Jewish writer from the time, recorded Jesus twice within his writings, and while neither were positive particularly, they prove that even His "enemies" acknowledged his...

This didn't happen. Egyptian records report no drop in economic output in the period. that's cos they uses slaves. They didn't have to pay their workers, so of course the economy wouldn't be any more negatively effected than if there was a slightly worse harvest. Your slaves up and leaving makes yo...

Also, everyone, sorry for my off and on participation in this thread, but I think something needs to be said: Why believe in God?

Me neither. Using your influence to change the world for ( at least in one's own vision) the better, is not wrong. It's pretty much "with great power comes great responsiblity" in action. I agree. I think the we, US and the west, should use trade deals to inact change across the world. Fo...

Can you name a single US trade agreement from the last 50 years that hasn't included such things? Well obviously said rules do not apply to the WTO, which we signed. https://ustr.gov/trade-agreements/free-trade-agreements Here is a list of our current non WTO agreements.

No, those are things that the US, as a matter of policy, actively forces everybody who signs trade agreements with them of any form to agree to. Do you have a source the US never makes compromises on those points? Those are some of our standard opening demands but I have never heard us say they are...

The Western Democracies must hang together or they will hang separately. Propping each-other up is essential to avoid belligerant interference in our politics from the likes of the Sauds and Chinese.
