    I think you should consider posting shorter videos. :lol:
    2 threads with videos from this guy, for a total of what? 3.5 hours of viewing?

    You learned only by liberals who fight against God for their Marxist Politically Correct utopias.

    That's just your private opinion, for me videos are fine.

    The content is very rich. Therefore I have no problems with the length.

    Did you watch it in its entirety?

    I saw the time on this one: hour and a half! Is there a Readers Digest version?

    Obviously, I haven't watched the video. That said, I can see it happening that an American with a science background might have circumstances that push him towards The concept of Jesus, God and The Bible for answers.

    Had this learned man come of age in Egypt however, I'll bet anyone $1 that he would have turned to Mohammed, Allah and The Koran for answers.

    Religion is simply one of many directions to focus - not necessarily the truth.


    For me, I found the ancient creation stories first, picked the most popular one in my community at the time, and then gave it up in favor of the truth found in archeological and DNA evidence.

    Meh, I just want to live my life.

    I don't care if there is a god, religion, people blowing themselves up for allah, or any of that hoo hah.




    I'm going to fight for what I believe in and I believe everyone should happily live their lives without interference. It's a choice. <3

    You're wrong many of us just matured over the years.
