  1. Well this document states there was no word for a sphere in Hebrew at that time. It seems plenty of religious people can accept a globe earth! http://www.eternal-productions.org/PDFS/articles/Does the Bible Teach a Spherical Earth.pdf "Does the Bible Teach a Spherical Earth? Many believe that the Bible teaches that the earth is flat (or a flat disk). Both assumptions are incorrect. There are a number of Scriptures that indicate a spherical earth. These Scriptures were penned centuries before a spherical earth was confirmed. Isaiah 40:22 states that God “sits above the circle of the earth.” While there is no Hebrew word for sphere, Khoog which is translated circle, circuit, compass is the closest. Because God is omnipresent, He looks down upon the earth from every direction. Therefore, from God’s heavenly perspective – looking down upon the earth from every location – the earth would appear round from every perspective ONLY if it were a sphere. If the earth were a flat circle for instance, then from most angles the earth would appear as an oval or even a straight-line (if perpendicular to it). Therefore, Isaiah 40:22 indicates a spherical earth. Furthermore, Jesus said “For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth” (Matthew 12:40). Of course a person cannot be in the heart of a flat circle anymore than he can be in the belly of a flat fish. And Ephesians 4:9 corroborates when it explains that Jesus “first descended into the lower parts of the earth.” Luke 17:34-36 also implies a spherical earth. Jesus said that at His return some would be asleep at night while others would be working at day time activities in the field. This is a clear indication of a revolving earth, with day and night occurring simultaneously. In addition, Job 26:7 explains that the earth is suspended in space, the obvious comparison being with the spherical sun and moon. See also Job 26:10 and Proverbs 8:27. The Bible is the Creator’s Word so it is not surprising that recent scientific discoveries are confirming what the Creator has said for millennia. “For the word of the LORD is right, and all His work is done in truth” (Psalm 33:4)"
  2. But some things can only be seen from a certain perspective. The eyes are limited to what they can detect. This is why technology is used. If we relied only on what our eyes could tell us then we would know very little. Do you accept the idea of subatomic particles?
  3. Zoom is actually pretty good for online group meetings. Maybe the forum should organise some zoom sessions?
  4. You do realise that genesis is metaphorical? Big bang doesnt ridicule genesis. Let there be light could mean a blinding explosion. The last days are when you die and see your full life before you. The bible was written by people who didnt have the knowledge we have today. It is not the infallible word of god in writing. I guess for many religious people questioning the bible creates a lot of problems, as it could be seen as doubt, which brings feelings of guilt and shame, etc. God gave you senses to see the world around you. He also gave you a brain so you could learn from it rather than be trapped by the text of an ancient book.
  5. I think there is a difference between washing with an alcohol based cleaner and actually drinking the stuff. Their ban of alcohol is because it intoxicates and causes lack of control, which can lead them to 'sin'
  6. lol, good pic. Proving my point too!
  7. And you have proven yourself quite the bully, or at least you try to be.
  8. Probably not. I do love the films though, especially the Colour of Magic
  9. I have said something similar before. You can tell some of these objects are rotating too by their features, so its not like that are presenting one face, as if you were looking down onto a disc.
  10. Maybe thats their starting point? maybe if you engaged with them more positively rather than abusing them as all sorts of enemy then in time they would be more open? at least they might respect what you stand for a bit more. When 'believers' just gang up to stomp on somebody for questioning it makes it look like a belief cult. Worst comes to worst and they keep triggering you then put them on ignore!
  11. Doesnt work like that. Its all about higher vibration bro
  12. So negative. You will attract those lower astral beasties if you're not careful
  13. Im a Terry Pratchet fan too. Discworld is great
  14. But even David Icke himself says we should question everything, even his information. If we fail to actually question what he is saying then isnt there a danger it just turns into a belief cult?
  15. Whhaaaattttt Icke wrote a book some time ago where he talked about the Lion people from Sirius. People stopped talking about them after a short while it seemed.
  16. How is this distancing anybody from God? Jesus said the kingdom of heaven is within so surely God must be too?
  17. Maybe they just need to get into mental contact with the lion people?
  18. Im sure I have some of his stuff on my kindle in my 'to get through' pile. I end up buying books faster than I can read them, lol
  19. You prefer a higher vibrator? naughty boy
  20. lol, how does anybody get past you lot
  21. Wow, just check out the bullying because I disgree with peoples views on organ donation.
  22. Cremation or burial is really down to personal belief. People who believe in the physical resurrection get buried, though I doubt it would matter if organs have been removed for if got get restore their bodies to living condition then surely he can fashion new organs. There are methods like sky burial too. In sky burial bodies are cut up and the flesh fed to vultures. Sometimes the bones are used for crafting items as the physical remains are regarded as useless to the spirit.
  23. Why, do you prefer people with smaller heads, ya creep
  24. The nazi doctors carried out a lot of painful operations on living prisoners.
