@ JoC

And almost forgot. You forgot what the OP stated.

In the first response, I give him the challenge to find God's Nastiest Turd.

P.S. — My Prophecy. Since we ignored JoC's demand to "pick one," he shall ignore my demand to "pick one."

"Yes, but what about rainbows??"

Leprechauns. How do you think they get their pots of gold?

One Leprechaun stands at a place. Another stands miles away with an empty pot. The first one uses his Rainbow Power to fire the rainbow up into the clouds and to the empty pot. As the rainbow hits the Silver Lining of the clouds, it pops out planchettes that get magically transformed into gold that slide down the rainbow to collect in the pot.

I thought everyone knew this. It was a special creation by the Ginormous Cosmic Bunnies. Ask Tin-Man.

I never did understand why

I never did understand why some people believe in special creation. I wasn't raised to believe in special creation. Genesis includes odd phrasings like letting the land produce vegetation rather than simply saying that God created the vegetation bit by bit; the account of the rise of animals does include the word `create,' but it isn't clear what that's supposed to mean. I don't see how you jump from even a loose translation of Gen 1 to `every animal species' physiology is the way it is because God particularly arranged for it to be that way' since the word `created,' in its minimal reasonable interpretation, only implies that God is responsible for the overall outcome. Deed doesn't entail method.

Of "Out of Context"

Of "Out of Context"

It is completely OK, as demonstrated by the NonStampCollector video, that you Absolutists are completely fine with someone taking something sweet out of context from the Bible...

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life."

You Absolutists are perfectly fine when I take the above "out of context."

However, as soon as someone pulls some nasty thing God did, or commanded to be done...

"Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women."

...out of context, you Absolutists scream foul.

Hate to say this, but when it comes to the Bible, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS OUT OF CONTEXT.

Besides, the ENTIRE Bible is "out of context" since there is NO truth in it, and every thing written in the Bible is plagiarized from myths, legends, fables, far older than the Bible. Some thousands of the years older.

So whenever any of you Absolutists try to use the "out of context" card, suck my dookey chute dry.

You're an ass--and I say that as a description of that you're wrong and seem to be proud of it--for using a group identity that you define, like `Absolutist,' to shove what you want to believe we believe down our throats.
