    Let me start from your last paragraph. Do you know how was Christianity prior the Roman emperor Constantin, if you don't , then find out. You might learn how Catholicism come into the picture and how it
    Constantin changed Christianity and it becomes polytheistic. There are many Christian branches Monotheistic.

    History . You born here how much history do you know with regard to the native American ?
    Myth , you don't have any base because you vere not there nor you read history.

    First paragraph : what is so funny ? what is your point , sher with me your knowhowe

    Many Christian Sects do not believe that Jesus is the son of God? Which ones?
    Not sure what this has to do with the OP, but yeah I have a fairly decent understanding of the Native Americans history. I am a big fan of the archeology and Native American history. I have many fond memories of tromping through miles of muddy fields with my father looking for Native American Artifacts.
    Ah yes, the old "you weren't there so you do not know" ploy. Luckily the rest of the world does not think that makes sense - if they did then murders would go free unless all of the jurors observed the the murder.
    I told you why that is so funny in the post, but I will reiterate.
    You say the flood myth is real and one of your supporting evidences is there is another flood myth.
    2 myths does not make it real!
    In all likelyhood the Noah myth was based on the Gilgamesh myth, well that was the conclusion of the Professor that was teaching the Near History course that I took in college.

    I am having trouble deciding whether or not I am theist or atheist. I know the existence of god is not based in science but theism feels right to me.

    Yo no tengo problema between Gilgamesh and Noah who ever published first. reality we don't know who published first . Your professor does not have the information first hand.

    About Christianity: Early Christian did not worship Mary nor any other saints . That was to acomodate the Roman believe , they worshiped a queen of heaven , so the formation of Catholicism is a mixture of several
    religion to acomodate the one religion in Rome call it universal = Catholic .

    Tell me how much in the American history is mentioned about Cherokee displacing them from the south to Oklahoma.

    I have decided I am Roman Catholic because that is how I was brought up.

    That's a good reason.

    I tried typing out that I was atheist in post #65 but I got real anxious afterwards so I changed my response and I chose being Roman catholic which is the faith I am most comfortable and secure with. There is nothing wrong with being atheist, I think it is smart and brave, but right now it just is not working out for me.

    There is a lot of cultural conditioning geared towards making atheists or potential atheists uncomfortable. Fear of losing family ties, fear of divine punishment, etc.

    I worry most about not having the connection to God which I believe in if I become atheist. I think atheism is logical because people can use science to sometimes poke plausible holes in a religion or faith but it is the feeling of being spiritually connected and morally right when I believe in God that keeps me a theist, specifically Roman Catholic. What are you guys thoughts on theism or atheism, you may enlighten me and other people on what is most plausible between theism and atheism.

    Wow! That is a lot of history! Thanks! What would Israel have to do in order to bring about peace between themselves and the Palestinians? Does Palestine technically belong to both peoples? Did Israel once own the land we call Palestine today before the state of Israel fell hundreds of years ago and the Palestinians occupied it? What a tough nut to crack!

    It is interesting that the bible does not match up with history on this. I guess the bible may be a book of part fairy tales if the Egyptian enslavement of Jews and Book of Exodus stories are actually false. It is nice to hear the Jews were not enslaved by the Egyptians but paid well for their work in Egypt. It is also good that the Jews brought back the money to Israel that they earned in Egypt which benefited their economy.

    There is no problem for a believer and follow science . You have to keep in mind, not everything you read in science is the truth , many of the so called truth in science are based on some assumption and the assumption might not based on facts, So you read then examine them then reach your own conclusion and keep on examining for more information and if necessary change tour conclusion.

    I definitely would challenge the poster where he got you his story, I would ask him for reference otherwise he is a story teller because he was not a live 3500 year ago.

    I would appreciate it if you could provide a reference online or written for us about how the enslavement of Jews in Egypt and the story about Moses, and the story of the Book of Exodus, if I can include it, is false and never happened. Just curious.

    Science is good because it helps prove or disprove ideas we humans get. Religion gives us a lot of ideas that do not line up with science which is where I get confused.

    Is the Roman Catholic faith considered Christian? Does the Roman Catholic faith have any Jewish roots?

    Jesus was a Jew. Why don't you become Jewish?
