Two Believers Arguing about the Bible

Sadly, this could have been me. I was every bit as stubborn, foolish and ignorant in the face of intelligent, thoughtful and kind people who just disagreed with me.

I was a KJV, 6 days/6000yrs (certainly not more than ten), evolution denying bible totin’, chapter and verse spoutin’… arrogant S.O. a… God. They both understand and accept that they use circular reasoning about the belief that the Bible is the Word of God. The fact that Steven goes further down the Rabbit Hole to include the KJV Translation in his reasoning doesn’t negate that both are admitting and justifying their circular reasoning about the Bible in general.

If only James could take the logical consequences one step further… like I did.

Just a hint on Evidence…

Passing on what previous generations have said or believed is not Evidence. It’s a Claim… Hearsay.

They may indeed have said it. They may have believed it. Neither makes it automatically true. And the fact that they said it and/or believed doesn’t constitute Evidence for you to believe or say that it’s true either.

“It goes on”

Looking out over tomorrow, Seeing himself with her just last week, Daniel didn’t know if he could do it anymore without seeing her again. The memories would always be stronger than reality alone. She was gone but he knew every day would be another choice for him to stay. “Live”.

September is Suicide Prevention Month
My entry this week is in honor of Suicide Prevention Month and all those help others and those who continue to make the choice to remain. It may seem to some the easiest choice in the world to keep living. But in the face of truly difficult times or great loss or traumatic experiences finding reasons to becomes almost excruciatingly painful. That’s where loved ones, family members and close friends come in. Be aware. Be empathetic. Be the bridge back to reality and hope that these people need to continue choosing life. 
***Now it’s your turn. -mike
