At the beginning of that first line of text in your post I typed: [ quote ] but did not leave a space be-tween the [ and the q or the e and the ]. At the end of the line I typed: [ / quote ] but again did not leave spaces between [ or / or quote or ].Quote
Thanks Susan! How do separate what people have said and then comment on it?
Bear in mind that if I, ancient person, using software for severe sight loss but luckily being a touch typist can do it, anyone can!!
I’ve no idea!! I use the special hot keys on my SuperNova to help me navigate.Quote
Also, why do I have one long string with different topics that I have to scroll through to get to where I can respond? I'm new to this. This is my first interactive blog.
And this is not a blog or a place to deliver lectures which Enigcom and Itatw70 tend to use it as; it is a message board where points and comments are made in response to an opening question, followed by further discussion and this sometimes diverts into different aspects and tangents.
People believe that the God they imagine to exist has all good human attributes, but anthropomorphising it leads to further elaborations on these supposed attributes.Quote
I saw Mr Graham talking to Joe Rogan on his pod cast and that's where this idea came from.
Being raised in the church and having a science based mind doesn't work out well for, I guess, any-one. The majority of the church want to live in a bubble where God is love, and he is btw,
It is really sad that children are taught such fantasies as truths.Quote
the clouds with the angels playing harps into the gates of gold and walking on the golden streets. If you start asking questions about things that don't make sense, you're kind of shunned or brought before certain leaders and reprimanded.
That’s a total shambles, a total muddle with not a rational fact anywhere. I don’t blame you – the people who fed you this, however well-intentioned they were, put you on a path to a totally false picture of reality. The word translations may well be correct, but are irrelevant.Quote
The goes true with the science world. If it's not what mainstream agrees with, then it's scoffed at. It says that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth, And the earth was void and without form, And the spirit of Lord hovered over the waters of the deep. I believe that this is talking about two separate places in time. The first part was around the time of the creation of the universe. And that word God is translated from Hebrew word Elohim. However, the word elo-ha is God, Elohim is actually plural. Now, some millions or possibly billions of years pass before the world is destroyed and the spirit of Lord hovered over the waters of the deep. What ever happened here is the subject of much discussion. The Bible reflects on it very little, it's focus is on helping us because we are His creation, and when I say him, I mean the word of God- Jesus. This world was taken from Lucifer, who was the highest ranking angel out of all the angels, and given to Jesus. They're still fighting over to this day. I believe that is mostly what they are talking about on ancient aliens.
