"In Gen 1, the earth is "without form . . . and there [is] darkness over the face of the waters. God creates a firmament to "separate the waters from the waters." The Hebrew word usually translated as…"
"Just noticed this. At work, I have to have my headphones on to get anything done, because aisle chatter can drive me to edge of homicidal rage. I'm a huge metalhead, but also love music like Autechre, Coil, Kraftwerk, and Mouse on Mars. I also…"
"It suddenly dawned on me: Should astronauts be considered gods (for being able to break through the firmament) or simply evil scientists "playing god?"
And if it's the latter, why does god allow them to break through the firmament?…"
"I can't remember when I decided that "the formal rules of English can blow me," but it was a time when I fancied myself a poet. Therefor, the rules didn't apply to me. That's kinda the short version. As an afterthought, I…"
"Well, the relationship had its flaws, but there were indeed many upsides. Like Mom really pushing the importance of spelling/grammar as a key element in being taken seriously by others.
And how to spot when others are potentially full of shite."

This group will do more than just pick apart biblical errors and contradictions. Let's closely examine the Bible and Qur'an. Nothing is sacred; every prophecy, proverb, and parable deserves examination and critique.
Sean, please consider joining my group HERCULANEUM: A PLACE FOR MEN. Herculaneum is a group where men can discuss and explore the ideas, goals, demands, ethics, sexuality, and nature of manhood and masculinity. It is a place where we are free to be ourselves, and discuss the issues most important to our identities as men.
If you join, please check out the first two discussions: How do we define manhood in the 21st century? and Rites of Passage: A Lost Ritual?.
This is a private group, and discussions can be viewed by members only. Membership is open to men only.
