    I never claimed you did but where do you think they got the idea from?

    True,some were.Such as the Asarian resurection tale ..a classic tale of spiritual rebirth in their mythology.

    Actually those separate Gods as you describe them simply represented various aspects of the one God at the heart of most paganistic religions. They were all derived from the same source essentially.




    Or Yahweh is simply another version of God that has had the benefit of good marketing.
    Which you are free to do of course.

    No one converts for me. They do it for Him.

    It's a dealbreaker for me too. I won't date a non-Christian. Our souls and spirits are just too different.

    ...So the belief that the Pope is God's representative on earth and that he is infallible in doctrinal matters is not a core belief ?[/QUOTE]

    Popo is the Catholic's big kahuna. God/Jesus Christ is the big guy for Christians--especially born-agains.

    The fact that different religion may have similar ideas does not necessarily mean that one religion got it from another. The concept of a trinity could have arise independent of what existed in other religions.

    “ The trinity of the other religions you mentioned is not the same as that of The Bible. Most of those trinities consisted of a wife, husband and child, usually a son. ”

    True,some were.Such as the Asarian resurection tale ..a classic tale of spiritual rebirth in their mythology.


    “ The Triune God of Christianity is a single God in three persons, not three seperate gods. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost are the same God in three aspects not three seperate gods. ”

    Actually those separate Gods as you describe them simply represented various aspects of the one God at the heart of most paganistic religions. They were all derived from the same source essentially.

    While they represented different aspects of the religion, not of the one god, they were still considered seperate entities. If you read the Enuma elish, the Babylonian creation myth, you will see that the gods all had seperate identities. Father Apsu and Mother Tiamat and their son Mummu were a family not a single entity with three aspects. The same familial relationship carries through with the rest of the gods who followed, Anshar was a son of Apsu and Tiamat and Kishar was their daughter.This familial lineage carries right down to Marduk who was the son of Ea and Damkina and the great-great grandson of Apsu and Tiamat.

    I think the appropriate term for you would be Christian supremacist. A common thing in North American Christianity.

    One of main reasons, which sandy has so succinctly put forth, for the downfall of mankind is the hatred, racism and bigotry espoused from cults such as Christianity, solely based on faith.

    Does the person them self, with their desires, ideas and contributions mean anything to sandy? Clearly not. The theists mindset rests entirely on the afterlife and how well they win favor with their cruel and immoral gods. Life on earth is a mere trifling inconvenience.

    Will mankind ever recover from this disease?

    Myles, I can't tell if your primary reason for being here is to discuss religion, or to trash and insult theism at every chance you seem to get.

    Have you sought the eternal verities that lie within the Holy Koran?
