Well, I'm only a Christian, whereas you're not. What would I know about Christianity? Jesus, per the Bible, was not "forced" into carrying it out. He chose to. David Flechard

Quantum Abracadabra.
The "fireball" would be the start of another universe besides our own--and in that universe, not ours, mustard-seed brain.

Counting the hours is one way. Suppose we were talking about a cricket match being rained off (well, whatever your local game is). We could say it rained on Friday, it rained on Saturday, and it rained on Sunday. On the third day of rain, we abandoned the game and went home." Maybe it only rained for 30 hours, but it is perfectly fair to say it rained on the first, second and third day. David Flechard

And send it over by a porter who won't lager behind. We'll get bock to you.

I don't argue that in any case. "Religion" as a concept is much narrower than "cult." Some regard "cult" as unorthodoxy or spurious, but that depends on your point of view. Is this how you understand the routine practice of Christianity? David Flechard

I was thrown off by the reference to "death is all that is left for the cult to practice," which made me think you had in mind some organization engaged in regular or ritual killing of some sort. You know, like the Thugees. But now that you've explained what you meant, I understand your meaning more clearly. If you mean physical evidence, none at all. I'm not confused at all. You may not share my beliefs, of course, but that's

Salt
I have. Anywhere there's the odd bit of water for them to lay their eggs in. Probably intoxicated because of the high CO2 within the bottle's air. As to why no new wasps, my SWAG is that they might smell decompsing wasps.

This is a good 'un :)

Egyptian nobility weren't being buried at Luxor at this time. Try "Valley of the Kings." Note that this account does not give us one single name to follow up on, save Blavatsky's. I smell a pulp fiction story, ca. 1930-1940.

Historical Bible.
Superman lives in Metropolist, stupid, not New York. Liar Appleton: DEBUNKED again!

Slap on the wrist?
Good bloody grief. Raping children and all he has to do is say he's sorry and "wants help," and he gets six months?! How about a bullet through the skull AND six months! Huh?! He's Christian clergy! That makes him MORE likely to re-offend!

Denton's Bullshit
That lie comes from the occult book "Why I Believe." If I photocopy _Bhagavad-gita_ 100,000 times, does this mean it's more historically accurate than the Christian Testament? DEBUNKED!

Paluxy Footprints.
Gish and his cult have finally acknowledged the fact that the "man tracks" are not "man tracks." However, his cult still sells a book that claims the dinosaur tracks are "man tracks." This is par for the course with Creationists. Only if by "reliable" one means "An incompetent lying sack of shit."

Amusing Inbound Mail
Odd how the UFO nut lumps "new age" with Wiccans and Pagans (the latter two of which are generally annoyed and amused at the former). When he saw how well "Pat" Robertson was doing using witchcraft.

Higher Criticism.
He couldn't stand that much pressure on the job.

You also seem to be forgetting just which mythological system Lilith is a part of. (Hint: which religion wrote the Old Testament?)

It's only one symbol. Another symbol is the fish. It doesn't therefore follow that the focal point of Christianity is angling. David Flechard

I think we're abusing probability when we make statements like this (and, yes, I've made them, too), because I don't think there's any way to assign any sort of probability figure to such a thing.
