Thread: Ignorant, stupid or insane? (Or maybe wicked?)
Message #: 75

I gave it a "4" rating.

Yes, the topic is in the "Free For All" forum. But the cited message (from someone of the creationist side) shows promise of being a launching point for some quality discussion.

People, let's try to keep it nice.

Not too many October POTM
Ringo has a delightful way of making the obvious seem profound.
I want to mention him in this thread.

... as we've already discussed, the Bible clearly says that God is one, and that three separate persons are all God. How does one reconcile this without something similar to the Trinity?


Why reconcile it at all? What's the good of reconciling the Bible with itself if the reconciliation causes schisms between Bible believers? Why not just treat two different viewpoints as two different viewpoints? Priceless!

Ringo - A "Him"?

Is Ringo a "him"?

I am still reeling from the revelation that Granny Magda is a "he".

Is nothing sacred?

Are there any women participants here at EvC? Or just a series of Straggler-bewildering "imposters"?

Didn't you know, there are no real women on the internet. You must be new here.
