We are currently fighting people who insist the chicken was made on the sixth day. They DO believe in the same anti-knowledge God. The very same Middle Eastern bloodline. One book, that's it. Believe all of it, or none of it. If you believe none of it, go directly to hell. I'll give it some thought.
    And there in lies the difference between God and Religion. Religion is against learning, how do you think we got the dark ages? RELIGION.

    The book they claim to be based on, however, promotes learning. It gives guidelines that kept the Jews healthier than their neighbors by not spreading disease. It was clear about other items of a scientific nature.

    I can't (nor would I want to) make someone believe. I may, however, hope one learns to believe. Belief based on blind faith is a waste. One has to learn what they are putting faith in first. Belief based on knowledge moves people to reflect the things they have learned. Belief based on blind faith, well, we've all seen what that results in.

    Be well.

    "When under trial, let no one say: 'I am being tried by God.' For with evil things God cannot be tried, nor does he himself try anyone. . . . Do not be misled, my beloved brothers. Every good gift and every perfect present is from above, coming down from the Father of the celestial lights, who does not vary or change like the shifting shadows." --- James 1:13, 16, 17
