C'mon. That unkepmt hair, the beard, those Hari Krishna robes, and all that lovey-dovey talk. Let's face it, Christ was a Woodstock-Jammin, Tree-Huggin, Pot-Rot-on-the-Brain Hippy.

Sounds quite in line with my interpretation! I'm always trying to remind my fellow Christians who are of the, uh, conservative persuasion that the Man Upstairs was pretty left-wing. You know, charity to the poor, women's rights, things like that.

But Aaron, over in the "I ask, U answer" thread, you stated that the first person to succesfully perform transmutation was Ernest Rutherford... :D

Well,Tony....

I asked for the first "documented" instance.
As a physicist I know it was Ernest Rutherford.
As a christian (such as I am, anyway) I believe Jesus turned water into wine.
As a scholar I know that many things in the Bible just aren't true...
As an aside, Ernest Rutherford was the first to document what was happening in that experiment; quite a few others had performed the very same thing, notably Marie Curie's daughter Irene, who didn't realize that part of what she was doing...
and I would have accepted "Jesus" as an answer!

Then who was the first genetic engineer?
Answer: Hannibal, because he crossed an alp with an elephant... :D

well, the two aren't mutually exclusive, whatever you think.
YOU can change water into wine......

Who was the first socialist?
Answer: Robin Hood, because he robbed the rich and gave to the poor!:D

The biggest magic trick pulled off by Christianity is how it can still fool people in the 21st century.

I should think that a socialist could only see value in Matthew 22:39.
..and for a Christian Matthew 22:37 is the same thing.
What's foolish about that?...Oh, and I'm mostly not a Christian.;)

You believe in a book that has talking animals, wizards, witches, demons, sticks turning into snakes, burning bushes, food falling from the sky, people walking on water, and all sorts of magical, absurd and primitive stories, and you say that WE are the ones that need help?

"..and the second is like unto it, 'Love your neighbor as yourself."

What's foolish about that? It ALMOST sounds like socialism.:D

What if you're a manic depressive and hate yourself? If you're considering suicide, you might just decide to "euthanise" your neighbour, first...
Or, to be more serious for a moment, the concept of "love thy neighbour as yourself" can only be considered Christian if it is unique to Christianity. The same philosophy can be found, however, in other religions, and in secular humanism, which isn't even a religion at all.
I don't mind continuing this discussion, Aaron, but I don't think it belongs here in Budo Fun. Care to start another thread in the Members' Lounge?
Best,
