I am a Christian and I eat kosher...............stupid 50 character maximum

For me, at least the existence of objective moral values and the existence of non physical things is evidence enough that we are not merely chemical accidents, but i would also need irrefutable evidence to change my belief system.

If there was irrefutable evidence that was directly contradicting my worldview, i would examine it and accept the truth, whatever it was.

No, considering the triunity of god it is translated as singular God, a plural one if you will, here is an example:

Deuteronomy 6:4

Hear o Israel, The Lord is our God, The Lord is one, Blessed be the name of his glorious kingdom for all eternity.

Now lets look at this in hebrew:

Shema Yisrael, Adonai Eloheinu, Adonai Echad, Baruch Shem kvode alchuto la-olam va-ed.

The hebrew for one is echad, a plural one, such as a cluster of graped or a branch full of leaves, a singular one is yechad.

It is amusing that you call something neither of us can prove, as we were not their when it was written, adefnite contradiction, Thaedus would have been his more greek name, that he was reffered to by the romans and in public but Juda (Y'huda) was his more jewish name that he would have been called by in the home and by close friends, it was the culture of that day.

Do you now anything about history?? Israel was rued by the romans, but they still held a very Greekish culture, and these names of the apostles were translated into english, in hebrew it would be Yochanan, Mattisyaho, Y'hudah and so forth.

No, it says that “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for[a] him.” That means man is alone without beast. Man came first then beast, according to that sentence.

The sentance says that it is not good for man to be alone i shal make a helper suitable for him, and The Lord HAD made the beast of the field and creature of the sea and brought them to Adam.

This is implying that before God made him a partner, he showed him all the creatures he had already made. This vere does not say that they were formed after, or it would not use past tense verbs. Also alone is used in the sense that there was noone suitable for him, not that he was completely alone.

19 further shows this as God creates beasts, man names them. How can man name them if man didn't exist?

Man names them after he is created wicch is expounded upon in the first passage, these two passages compliment each other, they in no way contradict each other.

Ok, this is a very easy one based on a misreading of the text.

25 And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kinds and the livestock according to their kinds, and everything that creeps on the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

26 Then God said, “Let us make man[a] in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

27 So God created man in his own image,

in the image of God he created him;

male and female he created them.

Ok, this is on the sixth day, God created the beasts, and then he created man, now lets look at the second passage.

18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for[a] him.” 19 Now out of the ground the Lord God had formed[b] every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. 20 The man gave names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens and to every beast of the field. But for Adam[c] there was not found a helper fit for him. 21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. 22 And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made[d] into a woman and brought her to the man.

It says The Lord HAD crated every beast and none was suitable, nothing suggesting that man was made first, he just brought him all the animals after he was created.

Thaeddus is a nickname, there is no reason to believe otherwise, it is not sprising that he did not want to be known as Judas because of what Judas Iscariot did.

1 point

Facts would convince me. If you can provide me with HARD evidence of anything other than judaism/christianity, than i will see no reason to believe it. But until i see hard eveidence, creation and God makes the most sense.
