Although "the origins of religion" could fill volumes, there are some very clear and well defined, very interesting links between Egyptian practice and what has eventually turned into the KJV.

1 Corinthians 14:33
For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

James 3:16
For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

This about sums up a few things.

It's clear that much of the actual data in the responses to the thread would need to be ignored to reach such a conclusion. You're perfectly entitled to disagree, as a matter of opinion, though.

Congratulations to your granddaughter on her birthday and I hope that there was jelly and ice cream, for the adults too .


Thanks Leccy,

Ice cream, cake, hot dogs, potato chips. I ate the stuff anyways.

This sounds kind of like "know you are but what am I" but I could easily say the exact same thing about your posts and perspective.
I am sure that just like everyone else, my perceptions are tainted by my knowledge and views but I was making a genuine effort to be unbiased and state my opinion.

Especially in regards to the art of the circular argument.

Buzz Man... I've little doubt that Judeau-Christianity is a product of pick and choose concepts that had appeal wherever they originated. And... I've little doubt that those concepts provide ministrations to the needs of a segment of human souls.

Even now... the picking and choosing can be seen. Some have a need to embrace judgment that places them in better standing than their neighbor, while others embrace graciousness having no superiority desires. Some take religion seriously as the central focus of life and others relegate it to another life enhancement.

CSpan offered a mock trial a few days ago of a gentleman charged with offenses because of his Christian affiliation. As part of his defense, which btw he did very very well, he rebutted the notion that the God of the Christians is supposed to be defined as good.

I found this unusual in light that my whole childhood religious instruction and guidance portrayed that the Christian god was goodness based.... that he was worthy of man's worship because he was goodness based.

But... he was right of course... the god of the Christians is not goodness based.

In your opinion of course, which carries about the same import in the greater argument as that little black speck of crap that sticks to your TV Tray after the fly goes off buzzing his way into the air.
