<quoted text>Your post lack any substance. You repeat saying "your wrong", "god is real", with out saying much else.
If you keep saying god is real over and over even you may come to believe that to be true.
IF your version of god was indeed real he would not be worthy of worship.
Wrong!
But do go ahead and believe what you want!

<quoted text>Being told by men that god is real does not show god is real. What kind of logic are you using? Mob rule? If the majority of humans believed in the Muslim religion, would you then follow it? Might does not make right.
By your logic, you are just not looking for Mohammed enough.
Hahahaha!
I thought even you'd know better than that!
If you want proof of God... you'd better start looking!

I heard what Cathy said! He said Nothing against his beliefs, but to hear the left tell it... you'd think he called them all nast names, and demaned they stay out of his stores! No!
He stated his beliefs, using his constitutional rights... Nothing more!
Now... If the reacted so harshly over a statement...
could they not make up other stories to besmirch him?
Yes... they could, and would do it!
Even Rosanne Bar wishes ALL Chic-Fil-A EATERS would get cancer!
We know who the jerks are, and it's not us!
The first thing I have to say is that I don't care anything about what Rosanne Barr says, or most other celebrities.
I agree that it is Dan Cathy's right to say whatever he wants, just as it is those other celebrities, and I don't have to listen to him either.
What I DID say is that I don't think it's right for corporations that get tax breaks (and they do, believe me) to send money off to the likes of James Dobson. If Cathy wants to send his own paycheck, it's a little more ethical, even though his income puts him in the "job producer" category, too.

Actually, the numbers probably are that high, since many Creationist "scientists" hold honorary and/or diploma mill degrees and most of the rest excuse themselves from objectivity.
The new conjecture biblical scholars have come up with on the Red Sea (because there isn't any evidence) is that the Exodus was more northerly across the shallows of the "Reed Sea" where the armed soldiers and chariots couldn't get through. A "parting of the waters" would have described an area between Lake Timsah and Lake Ballah or Great Bitter Lake. Geographically as well as strategically, this makes much more sense than for the Jews to march out of their way toward a body of water they couldn't cross without boats.
Reading the Bible... they were lead by a column of smoke by day, fire by night... Let's NOT give God the benifit of the doubt that He took them to a place WHERE God's Glory would be best displayed... See... no one wants to think the creator of the universe could do something so simple as part a sea...
No... let's look for other explanations, and IF we don't find anything... let's make something up... because....
We cannot have God doing all He says He did!
Do you not see this in every publication, and educational program (He said w/a snicker) on TV....
Even when there is no need to tack "Billions of years" or the word "Evolution" on a subject... they do it time, and time again!
I was watching a thing about the Periodic table of elements...
Great show, but even they could not keep those concepts out...
As though it's programmed in their minds!

<quoted text>How it shaped our nation can be told in history class. You are promoting bible study class.
And who says history classes do not speak of the Christian religion in relation to Americas founding? I am sure it is mentioned. Maybe not as much as you would wish, but we all have things we feel history classes do not speak enough of.
So unless you have changed your stance on bible study classes in public schools since I was gone, I stand by my statements.
Difference between Bible study class, and religion!
In case you forgot!

<quoted text>I did not know JCP sell a lot of foreign products, as their prices are hefty compared to Wal-Mart! You do remember my stance on wally world?
I hate buying their cheap foreign crap, but... My point is... Local people work at these places, they pay their bills with that money... even though it would be more if wal-mart bought locally...
it's still money coming in!
I think EVERY company that moved it's production out of the US should be banned, or fined to bring it back in...
It doesn't really matter at all now...
Retailers (Wal-mart and Chick-Fil-A for example)don't do a great deal to manufacture a product that boosts the GNP. Most of their employment and product is in domestic sales.
Local people work at these places, but the profits still end up in Benton and Atlanta. Whatever way you slice it, that money is exported from local economies.
As far as whether the products are US or foreign, read the label - it usually tells you. I routinely look for and buy American made merchandise. If I have to pay a couple bucks more for something that's going to last a few years, it's worth it to me.
I don't often buy or boycott based on the latest media hype, but in my book, Ralph Lauren struck out when he had the Olympic uniforms made in China. That ticks me off more than Cathy does.

Please tell me HOW I am wrong, and WHAT I am wrong about.
Ok!
But this will probably cause an overload of your synapse, so ya better be seated!

The fact that they have changed is proof that the theory of evolution may be correct. The only proof of your god is YAA repeating "god is real, god is real, god is real"

Ship's captains could see the "curvature of the horizon" and still feared dropping off the edge of Earth.

American Indian tribes slept under that stars and thought they were the campfires of their ancestors.

PIFFLE! "He took them to a place WHERE God's Glory would be best displayed" You reduce God to a carny showman? Are you a Pharaoh, demanding miracles of God for proof and amusement? Moses had already done that - God didn't need to set a stage for more theatrics.
If I were in a crowd of escaped slaves running for our collective lives do you think I would run toward a bonfire? "HERE I AM! HERE I AM!"
I never said they didn't find artifacts in the Red Sea - I said they were likely to - just not the ones you WISH were there. BIBLE SCHOLARS are the ones that came up with the much more likely scenario that Moses led them between the lakes - take it up with them!

"We cannot have God doing all He says He did!"
40 MEN wrote the Bible, COMMITTEES assembled it.
What don't you understand about that?

Perhaps God has found me, and He has Revealed to me that the Bible is naught but the work of man? LOL!

Um... Dogs, wolfs and coyotes have a common ancestor... The bible says they will reproduce after their own kind not change into a completely different species as evolution claims... This has never been proven... Mutation happens no doubt... But there are limits to change... Ever seen a dog give birth to a turtle?...
