what exactly goes through your head when reading articles like this? how do you reconcile fact with your religion? do you just dismiss this stuff as "temptation placed by satan" or do you simply edit and delete huge portions of your faith as it becomes convenient? what do your priests think about that practice?
honestly, just curious.
23,000 year old man-made structure found
6,000 year old human settlement found
LOL - I thought you said "what do YOU priests think about that practice?"
in question here of course is the christian belief that man is only 2,000 years old
- isn't that a small percentage of christians? i grew up with a bunch and no one believes that.scenek
- but it says so in the bible. your sect are heathensscarabin
- i think they believe the earth is only 7,000 years old. not that man is 2,000 years old.iCanHasQBN
they would simply state that the dating test is flawed/incorrect.
This should probably be in the the Religion thread... but, with that said I would like to know as well.
Fact > fiction
Why would Christians believe man is only 2000 year old? Where would that put Moses then? Flying around with tablets before Jesus, the first man?
- have you ever read the bible?scarabin
- why do you ask?cannonball1978
- it doesn't say jesus was the first manscarabin
- but what you said implies that they think thatcannonball1978
- Yeah, stop this crazy talk, everyone knows they believe the Earth is 10,000 years oldukit
What goes through their head is "does not compute! quick - molest more 12 year old boys!"
I don't think Christians hold the 'world is 2000 years old' as a real tenant of their faith. They hold the life/death and teaching of Jesus Christ as described in the New Testament as something to live up to. That the world was created, by God, in 7 days a few thousand years ago is an OLD Testament thing and all you're doing is combining it with the fact that with the unrealted fact that Jesus was believed to have lived 2000 years ago. No Christian in the world say the world started when Jesus was born so you are fundamentally incorrect, you make false assumptions so therefore false conclusions.
Although I agree that Christianity is largely made up of huge chunks of semi-interesting fiction, this thread is full of idiotic assumptions about people who worship Christ.
scarabin, cannonball1978's post above is right. i'm from a christian family even though i am not one. but think dude, its now 2010. thats after the so called death of jesus. jesus isn't adam.
Your premise is flawed and unfair. This is actually quite easy for modern-day rational people of christian faith to reconcile as true. Most do not believe the bible to be historic fact, but rather a guide for living well. It's the small, yet LOUD, minority of crazies that don't get it. In fact, some of the loudest DO get it, but they make tons of money being loud, so...
To me, the real issue to question is the idea of an anthropomorphic god in the first place. I believe in energy as proof of existence; not aliens, zombies, or other man-made explanations for the great unknowable universe.
- the problem is that you take some to be historical fact and some you ignore...it's ridiculousmonospaced
- By 'you' I hope you don't mean me. I'm not defending the christian religion (or any religion), just think the argument flawed.duckofrubber
- is unfair to the many non-crazies out there who actually can reconcile science with a christian concept of god.duckofrubber
personally as Christian I see that is a small part of extremists that believe that, sadly they are Americans so often they publish videos and make a big deal about it... and besides that, any source of information should be questioned. There is no guarantee in anything beside your personal experience... so, only because discovery says something you accept it without questioning?
- Not a small percentage at all actually.Mimio

- i'm basing my beliefs on personal experiences from living men who can show proofs, not outrageous, superstitious hearsay from people who have been dead for thousands of yearsscarabin

- you rely and trust in other person experience and knowledgeSalarrue
- Salarrue, you're mistaken: http://www.straightd…Mimio
- all things i can learn and experience myself. yours... not so much. which is why you rely on "faith"– the miraculous ability of humans to believe in something they have no proof forscarabin
- of humans to believe in something they have no proof ofscarabin
- dude I´m not from the US, and I don´t think they represent the christian faith at all.Salarrue
- Those statistics don't rely on what you think.Mimio
- @scarabin, have you really tried to experience Christian faith or you just repeat what everyone else says about it?Salarrue
- how far you were to prove something? you just google itSalarrue
If Xtians were ever peaceful people they might not get so much flack in believing in a Superman in the sky, but as a whole, both the bible and the cult a war mongers. And nobody likes war mongers.
