Religious arguments are futile. Faith cannot be trumped by either logic nor fact.
Interpretations of a two thousand year old (older) book written by a bunch of highly ignorant people who could't tell a natural phenomenon from a miracle, and then bastardized by multiple generations of grubby, greedy, ignorant humans who invented all kinds of dogma and belief in a vain attempt to be holier than thou or to control their "flocks" or those of their monarch.
And today in the 21st century, if this hijacked thread is any example, the level of religious discourse/debate has not progressed one iota. I have to wonder abot any "god" who insists its followers beleive in myths and fables at the expense of reality.
My karma ran over your dogma.
