Was just reading your information at the right side of the posting area. You are a woman who's not a Christian and doesn't believe in creation. So the age of the earth is probably of no consequence to you.

But apparently 'we' are supposed to be concerned because some people consider the God is a psycho- murderer because He caused the global flood that caused the death of millions of people as well as animals and allows millions of babies to be aborted by people's choice? Abortion means that all those innocent babies Died because People decided they should Die.
The thing is that our sinfulness Will kill us. All those people who died in the flood had Ample warning by God's messenger that unless they repented they Would die. But if they Repented -- there was an ark waiting for them. It was Their choice -- acknowledge their sinfulness, repent of it. God Provided an escape from the flood water -- they laughed at it.
All the innocent babies' that die at the hand of People -- is sickening. People have a choice to bring a baby into this world or not. Don't have sex because that's the cause of pregnancy / it's a conscience decision of two people.

Just saw your other response --- 'second two lines in particular' -- you'll need to be more specific, please. :)



You are not supposed, by me, to do other than as suits you.

Im as against abortion as ever you could be, tho how that even
comes up is a bit obscure.

If you choose to believe a god directed such a flood as the bible
describes, you do. Im guessing it best not to speak of it
more, our minds are not on compatible wavelengths.

May I ask what your religious / belief back ground Is? You state that you are not Christian - - that leaves a lot of ground Not covered.

Grew up in Hong Kong, in a non religious family.

Picked up a lot of Buddhist and Christian ideas along the way.

Hebrews 12:2-3 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross,despising the shame,and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

2nd Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not,lest the light of this glorious gospel of Christ,who is the image of God,should shine unto them.

Flood-believers separate themselves from those who dont like to see
the Christian faith dismissed as being a collection of childish superstitions.

So Audie,

For the rest of us who don't believe in a global flood, are you saying that a man who was crucified, died, and was resurrected on the third day after he died, IS NOT A childish superstition? Or a man who walked on water, turned water into wine, and healed the sick and lame, is not childish superstition?
1 Corinthians 1:9
9 God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

That sounds almost poetic. Like a haiku gone all wrong and yet somehow all so right. :mrgreen:
Proinsias wrote:I don't think you are hearing me. Preference for ice cream is a moral issue

And that, brothers and sisters, is the kind of foolishness you get people who insist on denying biblical theism. A good illustration of any as the length people will go to avoid acknowledging basic truths.

Audie is the master at parodying (butchering? :lol: English and Western thought - and often, hilariously so. Unfortunately, my Chinese stops at Confucius, or chow mein and moo goo gai pan - which are probably not even terms used in China restaurants.

But I hope she does realize how much we care about her around here, about her destiny, whatever she believes, if only (and hopefully) for just the time being. :esmile:
