Oh, you are saying that if it rained then the ocean would have lost its salt maybe to an extend. Do you know how much salt is deposited at the bottom of the ocean? If you truly believe this is doing nothing thats fine, but I will continue, because maybe someone will read this and realise something. I will always take the odds of saving someones soul,even if I look unintelligent or dumb or ignorant, simply because that's is what my heart is telling me to do, and you can't argue with someone following there heart because everyone does it. It's not just a religious thing.

Christianity is ALL about the miracles. I believe in a God who thinks outside the box, and can do what people such as yourself deem as "impossible." Therefore, in my mind and in the mind of all Christians, such a feat is far from impossible, even though human reasoning cannot comprehend it.

So, taking all that into account, yes...I refer to your thoughts as "inane speculation."


Bah. You don't even understand your own theology. The word "miracle" (simean in the Greek) doesn't refer to pixie dust or Santa Claus. It doesn't even refer that happy feel good endings or unexpected events. The word simean means "sign". All the miracles performed by Jesus were signs of his divinity as the Word (Logos in the Greek) of God. Christianity isn't about the world appearing in a puff of smoke with some magic words. The word miracle is too haphazardly thrown around...

Ok, how would not having two of every animal not work, you have to understand that the breeds of animal arn't as diverse as the are today.
More then just the jews have accounted for the Red Sea spliting and there are stones on the side of the Red Sea where they left. Did they go all the way around and put it there just to prove a point?
I honostly can't explain a talking bush, that is just something you have to have faith about, but everything else in the bible that can be proven is true, can you really prove you talked to anyone? Now you can with tape recorders and what not, but back then you have to either they talked to eacher other or they didn't, and if this is the reason you don't become a christain then I think you were missing the point.

For someone who was so against "literalism" and "bickering," you sure take part in both quite a bit. Miracles are generally thought of as supernatural events by today's society. But, if you're THAT intent on tearing apart my posts, then fine. I'll make the necessary correction. Christianity is ALL about the SUPERNATURAL EVENTS AND MIRACLES. Are you happy now? Even though I COULD argue that many of these supernatural events were performed as "SIGNS" for humanity, you would just try to find some sort of definition error again, huh?

You have no right to claim that I don't know what I'm talking about.

I don't become a christian because I don't agree with their teaching. I will never be a christian because christains have always discriminated against Jews (i'm not jewish either but I don;t disctiminate) Look at the cruisades they go to take back the holy land killing thousands for how ever long. Look at Hitler a devout Christian and look what happened there. So stop trying to convert me or tell me reasons to become a christian because no matter what you say I'm not gonna become a christian sorry

Fine. Let's widen the scope to base theology.

If you truly believe that Christianity is all about Supernatural Events and Miracles, then what seperates it from other religions that include such things? Basically, what makes Christianity unique?

Couple 'o things, Acer.

1.) Christians aren't against Jews. We may have different beliefs in who Jesus actually was, but we both believe in one true God. And the Crusades is not a good point to bring up. They believed back then that they were doing good by forcing people to convert by threatening their lives. Christians don't believe that now, so you don't have to worry about that. ^_^

2.) I don't care what Hitler claimed, he was NOT a Christian. He was an insane man who wanted to create what in HIS mind was a "perfect world."

We're not trying to convert you if you don't want to be. We're just laying down some points, and putting the option before you, but only IF you want to take it. There is no pressure, and no need to feel sorry, 'kay?

Hitler was a christian. I will admit he was crazy but are the mentally handicapped and mentaly insane people not worth saving? Because Crazy or not a person is still a christian. Are you saying had I been born insane or handicapped and been christian I'd still go to hell?

Yes, Hitler was in no way a real Christian. He only claimed the title because it was his family's religion and also it was another way for him to manipulate the German populace. In truth, the Nazi regime was built upon taking social Darwinism (theory of races) far beyond what it truly was...

I'm not trying to start a petty argument with you. I was exagerating when I said "ALL about..." There are obviously other key points to Christianity, which I know you're aware of. Jesus, the cross, dying for our sins, so on and so forth. I'm saying that a key point in being a Christian is to believe in the unbelievable. The flood, in your mind, is an unbelievable event - even though it has been recorded in many cultures as something that DID happen (I feel like a broken record, and I'm sorry for repeating this so many times). In my mind, and in the mind of other Christians, who believe that something such as a global flood could easily happen if it was by God...I don't even need to second guess it. The Bible states it as history, not a story, so I have no need to second guess it.

I can understand the viewpoint you are taking with this whole debate, and perhaps I have been doing what I said I wasn't here to do (forcing my belief.) For that, I apologize. All I'm trying to say is that without physical evidence that the flood didn't actually happen, you can't completely rule it out. Just like one cannot completely deny the existance of a higher being. Just like I can't prove that one exists. Without evidence, it all boils down to faith.

I'm sorry if I have angered or aggrivated you. It has not been the best of days, and perhaps I was just venting some anger.

Because Baptism and Confirmation don't infer a Christian ideology into a person.
