Keep holy the Sabbath it doesn't say not to work on the Sabbath, it only says that in the Jewish version; Christ changed quite a few things from the old testament version.

Which bible version says that? Of the five, so far, that I have looked at it has been pretty cut and dried.

Simply amazing. The scientific mind is a wonder. It's the truest form of a god. I like this man. I saw him on something else, but I can't remember what.

Thanks for this. I'll be watching parts 2, 3, and 4 tomorrow.

It is truly amazing how Christ changed all these rules, well except for the ones about homosexuality.

“You can safely assume that you’ve created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.”
Thanks from LongWinded

It is indeed, written during mythological times. Here's one scholar on the subject

Hebrew Bible: Plagiarized Mythology and Defaced Monotheism | Pyramidion

Quote:
. . .

But then again, if our kids are to be introduced to the myths of ancient Egypt and the epics of Sumer (watch video of the Sumerian creation myth) they won’t feel like they are in a strange land. The stories of Sumer and Egypt will sound so familiar.

“A lot of the stories in the Old Testament are in fact plagiarized material, particularly from the rich mythical heritage of the Sumerians – the inventors of writing. The story of Noah and the flood story, the creation of man out of clay, Cain and Abel, the gardens of Eden, the tree of knowledge, creation of Eve from Adams rib, and numerous other myths, like the throwing of Moses after he was born in the river, are all but stories found recorded on Sumerian clay tablets dating 5000 years back in time”

… This has long been common knowledge amongst the scholars of history, archeology and anthropology, but I find it extremely necessary today, in the so called information age, to drag it out of the academia realm and expose it in the open before the public eyes.

Why do we remember and celebrate legendary figures like David and Solomon who had no bearing on the human history course, while we hardly recognize the enormous impact historical figures like Akhenaten or Hammurabi had on how we today come to define monotheism and the rule of law. (Watch video of Hammurabi’s code of laws, some of which are echoed in Moses’s commandments)

But then, what do we, men of modern times, know or even care? … We were only told that in the beginning was the word. But according to history … it wasn’t.

In the beginning, was the river – the Nile in Egypt and Tigris and Euphrates in Mesopotamia. The river and the profound connection with nature gave the Egyptians and the Sumerians not only the stability and prosperity but also the craving to contemplate the creation of our cosmos and how life on earth came to be.

In other words, the river made the Egyptians and the Sumerians religious, and in a philosophical way. But does that mean that non-agricultural communities were not religious?

. . .
It reads as an interesting study. The only thing which makes religion alive and shows some believe in a deity is the change it makes from human nature to truly a supreme being. Like Ghandi, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Nelson Mandella.

Considering your signature, I'm kind of surprised at your attitude.

Just tell the truth...and then get the hell out of the way.

You don't really believe that?

Or it only applies to what you have to say?

Theists have nothing to fear from string-theoretic multiverse or inflationary cosmology. Every known version of these models requires that the universe/multiverse begin to exist and thus have a transcendent cause. Many cosmologists are also theists. Since there was a beginning of the universe from nothing, it had to come from a transcendent being that always existed, and we see the evidence of God's design and order everywhere in our universe.
