    I've been reading up on Christianity and Islam, trying to understand them better, including reading the Bible and the Koran.

    I was thinking about Abraham and the issue of obedience to one's god.

    If your god told you to kill your own son, would you?

    No I wouldn't. I would contend that this God was a maniac.

    In theory, yes, Dont know if I could actually carry it out though.

    My son is actually His creation, and His son. He loves my son more than I do or can. So I know He knows overall what is best, and I not only trust Him, but have faith in Him.

    The Koran is a bunch of BS. Written by ONE MAN, who supposedly had a revelation. What reason is there to believe it? Now, the accounts of Jesus had MANY witnesses, even Peter who was willing to be crucified himself before denying it.

    The Koran was written by a man who married an older lady for money, was a pedophile and a war monger.

    Also, I think its symbolic that the symbol of Islam is a lie also. Its the crescent moon with a star behind it. We all now know that scene cant happen in nature. I think its symbolic of the lie that Islam is, its a religion of the devil.

    How could Jacob wrastle God if Moses couldn't even look straight at him without glowing from radiation afterward?

    Because the bible is a book of not so well thought out myths. Why else.

    Plaque is a figment of the liberal media and the dental industry to scare you into buying useless appliances and pastes. Now I've read the arguments on both sides and haven't found any reason to brush your teeth. Ever.

    It's just nice how shiny and smooth they are after a good brush. Plus I find girls are more interested in making out when my breath is fresh.

    And I find it telling that a bunch of atheists, agnostics spend much of their time hanging on a religious board and hassling believers. Really bothers you guys, doesn't it? :laugh: What ARE you afraid of? :dev2:
