    I don't know what others would comment, but "belief" is simply the static, stony conviction that something is, is truly, and can never be or have been any other way, and "religious belief" simply seal it with the righteous stamp of a fancy realm beyond humanity centered on some superbeing beyond humanity.
    As in other posts, that was just pretending to be too wise by considering plain, flat concepts as more than they actually are, thereby engaging in some sort of convolute, byzantine discussion

    But certain of the fundamentalist churches are not that way. They teach a philosophy that the individual must study the Bible and reach his own understanding. That is why you can have some churches accepting homosexuality and some not. Its why you can have a Westboro Baptist church because the individual congregations decide what is the truth and not a central church authority.
    Under democracy one party always devotes its chief energies to trying to prove that the other party is unfit to rule - and both commonly succeed, and are right. H. L. Mencken US editor (1880 - 1956)

    Any source that seriously quotes anything from the Apocalypse (Revelations) as though it's meant to be science has to be compiled by people determined to be deliberately ignorant. It's a joke.

    Even the Bile says to do that -- its greatest compliment in the New Testament is given to people who didn't take Paul at his word, but did their own thinking about it.

    It's why some of the greatest scholars in the world on many subjects are found in religious garb.

    They may as well be... the Christians plagiarized a lot of the other Pagan religions that predated them and made them their own too.

    I've always been under the impression/understanding Adam and Eve, Jonah and the Whale, Noah and the Ark, ... numerous others... were stories stolen from earlier Mesopotamian + religions.

    How then can you reconcile that followers of each religion claim their supreme being is the true and only creator? If there is only one, the believers of the other religion are damned by their reading of their own scriptures.

    I considered that when looking at claimants to be actual revelation from a Creator. In my judgment, the louder the claim that all others are damned merely for thinking differently is a mark against a claimant, or for it, depending on how it is presented. After all, if there is only one true revelation, it will have to state that it is, while OTOH it's human nature to take even a partial revelation or a poorly perceived one and elevate it to being "the one and only".

    But damned merely for reading their own scriptures? That's a wild fundamentalist sort of claim, and one that can only be poorly supported from the Bible. After all, given that the Bible says that God shows Himself in His creation, and that every single item in Creation expresses the nature of God the Son, it's impossible for truth NOT to pop up elsewhere.

    It's interesting that among Christian institutions, the one that most acknowledges that fact is Rome... which still makes the most exclusivist claims.

    If Jesus is the gateway to God's holy kingdom, and you don't accept that, then by that aren't you damned for not believing? Despite all the good deeds a person had made and done during his lifetime, if God does not receive the praise and worship for being the creator, then that poor soul is damned is he not? So, Buddhists for example, they neither worship your god or his various supposed incarnations. They are outside the scope of the Abrahamic religions, by the reckoning of biblical scholarship, they are not welcomed to the promiseland are they?

    My mostly uneducated theory is, the land mass between Spain and Morocco broke through with the rising sea levels of the last major ice age and caused a tsunami in the Mediterranean sea. Some merchant selling indigenous live stock (goats, chickens, pigs, cows...?) had a few of each who used the sea as transportation got lucky and survived... the story has been embellished since from all the uneducated superstitious people who lived there at the time making the flood global, the animals world wide, and the "Ark" much bigger than it really was.

    Of course surviving such a disaster surely was miraculous, and would have required prior help/knowledge from "God".

    Re: Funny anti-religious Internet pics

    ^^ Almost every culture around the world has a flood myth, all the way from Mesopotamia to northern China, to the Aztecs in Central America. It probably has little to do with history and more to do with a common, very human fear. I highly recommend David Adams Leeming's THE WORLD OF MYTH for an excellent analysis.

    The story is ubiquitous. And the Hebrew version is no more historical than any of the others.

    I agree. And Every major culture has lived predominantly near the sea for food and transportation, and has at some point encountered a tsunami, which from their perspective would feel very global.

    Almost every culture of the world has a flood history,​ not just a myth. A flood is a memorable big deal.

    In north america we have some spectacular post-glacial flood features carved out in the landscape from giant ice dams holding back great-lakes-sized volumes of water suddenly giving way. I'm sure a flood filling the Black Sea would be a memorable one long after any accurate record of facts would be lost or distorted over the centuries.

    The question is whether this was the result of divine annoyance or the routine erosion of rock at what is now the Bosphorus Strait.

    I was raised in the Church of Christ. When I still went to church while stationed in Incirlik AB the chaplain's office was completely confused by our small congregation. They normally arranged to collect the portion of a congregation's donations that were sent to the mother church of that religion and could not understand that that there was no hierarchy ABOVE the individual congregation in the Church of Christ. The elders and minister of the congregation was it and they were appointed by the congregation.

    The answers to that among Christian scholars cover a broad spectrum.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    It's interesting that the wording in the Bible doesn't assert that it was global -- of course they didn't know the world was a globe, so they wouldn't actually say it that way, anyway. It just says all "the land", which in context probably means the known or inhabited world.
