Yes, name calling is bad. Anyway, I think it is quite obvious to even you Momma Angel that God did not create the Earth in seven days.

Husker,

I think John Creasy was pointing out something in edgar's post. I believe the rolling eyes might have meant, oh boy, here we go again with that concerning what edgar said. :wink:

Actually young_thinker, it is NOT quite obvious to me God did not create the Earth in seven days.

I believe with God ALL things are possible.

Welcome to A2k young-thinker

I am just commenting that we think of 7 days as the 7 days that we know. God does not use a Timex. We do not know exactly how time works for God. Men do not live to 800 or 900 years of age now as they did in the bible either.

Another substantive post from EB. I admire your consistency, EB. A man we can count on.

I have an idea it's ok for a couple people to spread the paint widely and others not.

I personally cannot think of any life easier than one where I was not accountable to God...died and ceased to exist.

The atheist belief/non-belief takes strength? Why?

According to my beliefs everyone will give account for every idle word and every moment of life before almighty God. If such a belief is for the weak....what is for the strong?

Anyone who can explain this would be greatly appreciated and taken seriously on the matter.

Responding to Bartikus:

If they weak take power from God, the strong must take their power from somewhere too. I believe the strong are born with an ability to lead their lives without God. We don't need that motivation.

Good for you. Age has little to nothing to do with it. Either you believe there's a G(g)od or you don't. There is no plausible excuse to be religious, except if you are too weak to face life on your own terms.


Which beliefs or religions are you referring to here edgar? I'm not familiar with any of them.

Some may say that it is the other way around. Belief in God is not a motivation to rise up from weakness. Belief in God is reinforces the strength of spirit that is within us.

You mean it takes strength to find motivations outside of God?

That sounds kind of contradictory. The strong must take their power from somewhere too? But the strong are born with an ability to live their lives without God? Can you elaborate?
