Is there a particular reason you resurrected this ancient thread?

There is no political solution
To our troubled evolution
Have no faith in constitution
There is no bloody revolution

We are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world

Our so-called leaders speak
With words they try to jail you
They subjugate the meek
But it's the rhetoric of failure

We are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world

Where does the answer lie?
Living from day to day
If it's something we can't buy
There must be another way

We are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world

You can present a thousand FALSE GODS. Reason and Logic and would dictate that not all of them can be the One and Only God of Creation....but then again reason and logic would also dictate that simply because 999 false Gods exist, those 999 do not and cannot preclude the one and only God of Creation from existing, because there is only ONE TRUTH. Thus far, over a 3500 year period, not one Truth found to exist in the Holy Bible has been debunked by Physical Science or History Actual.

Nor has a single "Truth" been proven beyond a few place names. It is not the sciences that should provide your proof or lack thereof....it is your job to do so.

Throughout history human beings have believed in gods—thousands of them. And just as past cultures—many great and lasting civilizations—have all but slipped from our memory, so have the gods they worshiped. It's mind-boggling how many gods people came up with throughout the ages. And it's also mind-boggling how people today seem to think that everyone has always believed in the Christian version of their god.

Acquaint yourselves with the fact: as humans change, so do their gods.



While today's dominant religions fixate on (and wage wars over) a few prominent deities, we would be wise to remember that billions of people from past centuries believed in—and devoted their lives to—entirely different gods. When civilizations lost their dominance, collapsed and were eventually overshadowed by others, so the gods they worshipped died out, and lost their relevance. If these deities are remembered in the present at all, they are thought only to be quaint relics of a distant, more primitive people.



This fact, perhaps more than any other, demonstrates that gods are human inventions, and live only so long as groups bound by common belief survive. Gods live solely in the minds of men and women, and are conjured up to serve very human personal and political needs.



Consider the following compilation of gods in whom people have believed over the course of human history. By no means an exhaustive list, it nevertheless serves as a reminder that gods have always been, and continue to be, human creations.

Many believed in gods, fewer in God.

"The day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the Supreme Being as his father, in the womb of a virgin, will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter." ~ THOMAS JEFFERSON 1823

Minerva
Was he right?

So?

Nor has a single "Truth" been proven beyond a few place names. It is not the sciences that should provide your proof or lack thereof....it is your job to do so.
It's not their job to "prove" the existence of historical figures either, what's your point?
