Re: Timmy Talk

Even if someone could arrive at a number of people killed within a religious war and compared with the number of people killed in a "non-religious" war, correlation does NOT mean causation. For...

Re: Timmy Talk

Ok, the word "leaning" implies that one leans TOWARD the existence of this (so far) unknowable god, rather than "away from" believing in same.

So, WHY do you believe this god is likely (or...

Re: Timmy Talk

Which god, Timmy? Your own kind of non-described god, or one of the gods described in someone's book? I wasn't aware of that (about you.)

And thank god! Imagine that! The NT does not condone killing "for the Lord". But if it did, believers would be defending it just like they defend the baby and woman killer OT hero Joshua.

Not sure who you mean by "Hebrews" (The modern ones? There aren't any Hebrew tribes anymore, and Israel is so secular today that 50% of them don't even observe the Sabbath.)
