Which Bible Stories Do You Believe In? post #1  quote:



Just for fun, the bibles filled with hundreds of little stories, some really way out there, many not so hard to believe. I can't name them all, but which of the stories listed above to believe beyond any reasonable doubt (meaning you believe that it occured, barring a few details).




(and yes, I know there's more than what I included. But I'm only one man, I tell you)

I voted for all except "God created light on day 1; the moon and sun came 3 days later", "The universe comes in three parts; heaven above, the earth below and the water that the earth rests upon", "The world was repopulated by Noah's 3 sons and their wives", "Mary was a virgin when she became pregnant with Jesus", and the Mormon ones

I believe he collected as many as he could and maybe got all of them in his area. He couldn't have got every single one on Earth though

You know I don't complain about poles, but what if someone doesn't believe in stories as historical truth? Not saying that's me or anything.

I'd tend to believe that Jesus was crucified. I mean, if he wasn't, that's a whopper of a mistake eh?

I voted for maybe half of these .... some i don't recognize (i'm catholic, i haven't read the ENTIRE bible... )

It doesn't say mary was a virgin when she got pregnant, she was married, i'm sure she did the mambo with Joe. They call her virgin mary b/c she got preggers with jesus without doing the deed.
I believe in the adam and eves, the noahs, the moses, abraham, the crucifixion and the resurrection.

Riddle me this, if we all come from two people, how do you account for all the different races. Not to mention, without fresh genetic code humanity would have died out in a few generations due to the incest.

Actually, there was something my mom and i saw in the bible that made us go hmmmm. I don't remember if it was when adam and eve got kicked out and it said they went to where everyone else was, or if it was someone else but it said something similar. (very specific, no? ) I think God made a bunch of peeps. But the STORY is, they started it all. I believe they were the FIRST. maybe AFTER WARDS, he made a bunch more. I dunno. The bible also says that Noah lived to be like 380 years old or something. Granted, the time might have been counted differently back then, or, it's a story that may have TRUE PARTS, but is a story, none the less. I dunno.

but if we did all come from two people, wouldn't the codes change eventually after so many reproductions? So it IS POSSIBLE.

Think about it: two people have let's say ten kids. Who are those ten kids gonna hump but each other? Right there, faulty genetic code. Then they have kids. The kids have the cousins or aunts and uncles. More faulty code. Eventually: retards.

ANYWAY, who knows. Like i said, i think there may have been more people living. and as for the different races, i dunno, maybe that's a clear indication that there WERE other people.

Kosher animals, clean animals, he collected seven of each. The non clean animals, were two by two.

That's the one I voted for.

You can vote for whatever event you believe occured, and just give your different view of how that might've gone down, if you want. No biggie, I reckon.

I always want to do a science one like this with stuff like the moon landing, the universe is infinite and ever-growing, and stuff like that.

About the different races, I think that went along with the part about God creating different languages when man wanted to build the tower of babel. I'm not 100% but I think that's what they say.

Different races are explained by Noah's 3 sons. Each had a different wife from each race. (whitish, blackish, orientalish)

As for Adam and Eve, various theories are out there, from Adam containing a more complex DNA capable of creating the races, or that there were pre-man things around still from the re-creation that had no soul, but intermarried with Adam's offspring.

I will respond with an old Statler Bothers Tune.


Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
That is the reason the Scriptures record
Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

Well the Lord looked down from His window in the sky and said
I created man but I don't remember why
Nothin' but fightin' since creation day
I'll send a little water and I'll wash'em all away.

So the Lord came down to look around a spell
And there He found Noah behavin' mighty well
And that is the reason the Scriptures record
Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

The Lord said Noah there's gonna' be a flood
And there's gonna be some water and there's gonna be some mud
Take off your hat Noah and take off your coat
Get a handshave and shave that and build yourself a boat.

Noah said Lord I don't believe I could
The lord said Noah get some sturdy gopher wood
Ya never know what you can do till you try
Build it 50 cubits wide and 30 cubits high.


Noah said there it is, there it is Lord
The Lord said Noah it's time to get aboard
Now take a creature a he and a she
And of course Mrs. Noah and the whole family.

Noah said Lord it's gettin' mighty dark
The Lord said Noah get these creatures in the ark
Noah said Lord it's beginnin' to pour
The Lord said Noah hurry up and shut the door.


Well the ark rose up on the foot of the deep
And after 40 days Mr.Noah took a peek said
We ain't movin' Lord where are we at
The Lord said you're sittin' on a mount Ararat.

Noah said Lord it's gettin' mighty dry
The Lord said Noah see My rainbow in the sky
Take all the creatures and people to earth
And don't be more trouble than you're worth.

Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
And he landed high and dry
And he landed high and dry.

For some reason, Aerosmith came to mind...

Aerosmith
Dream On

every time that I look in the mirror
all these lines on my face getting clearer
the past is gone
it went by like dusk to dawn
isn't that the way
everybody's got their dues in life to pay

yeah, I know nobody knows
where it comes and where it goes
I know it's everybody's sin
you got to lose to know how to win

half my life's in books' written pages
live and learn from fools and from sages
you know it's true
all the things come back to you

sing with me, sing for the years
sing for the laughter and sing for the tears
sing with me, if it's just for today
maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away

dream on, dream on, dream on,
dream yourself a dream come true
dream on, dream on, dream on,
and dream until your dream comes true
dream on
---------

Ditto. But I think I already said that earlier, before we started singing Aerosmith songs.
