Russians amaze me.  I suppose since I never lived in Russia, I will never really understand.

I Disagree that Christians , Jews . and Muslims SHARE the Same God.

 1...  The Bible Completely Disagrees with the god of ISLAM. and its Quran. 
2...   The God of Christians and Jews, MADE Man in His Own Image and Likeness and Has Sons and Daughters. - The God of Islam / Did not make Man in His Own image. 
3...  The God of Christians and Jews * in The Content and Descriptions of the Bible--- God - / has Declared the God of Islam To be a Fraud, Lie and Not truth. 
4. The God of Christians and Jews has stepped into His OWN Creation and Manifested HIMSELF as a CREATED being. From the Old Testament, God is Walking and Talking in the Garden with Adam. To the New Testament God is Morphed Himself as the Christ. the Lord Yahshua, JESUS. Who Claims to be ( LITTERALY ) the FATHER. The image of the Invisible God. 
And 5. The Quran and the God of ISLAM - Has NOTHING before the 7 th Century, In the Way of Supporting Scriptures, that verify its Claim - that All the prophets and Messengers before Mohammud = WERE MUSLIMS and taught Islam.

You see  -  The God of the BIBLE.... Proved by a RECORDED Line of EVIDENCE and preserved Scriptures. THE God of the Bible and the God of ISLAM are not the Same.   Acording to one the other -  One is a LIAR or declaring the other as a liar...   ! 

I always ask Muslims and Catholics  -  Why is it that Islam  -  before the 7th CENTURY  -  has - no preserved record, No BIBLES, No Gospels, No preserved books,  No Historic Maps,  No geographic records,  no CHRONICLES -  NO ARTIFACTS of any Muslims eXisting.   The Quran Claims that  Prophets Came to the earth before the  7 th  century and Islamic propheTs  delivered  Islamic scripTures  and ISLAMIC GOSPELS - to all  Languages and all Civilizations around the earth.Where ARE  the  Muslims scripTures  before the  7th CENTURY. 

The Torah and Gospels were only send in Hebrew and Greek.  and yet they are translated [b]to every nation [

       Hey Great  Alexander.   I see what You are saying.  Without trying to edit Your RESPONSE -You would agree with me that if death were a door or a gate to another Life or Afterlife .   We have no door knob or latch to open it with -  and that it has to be opened for us, if it even eXists.

     I have seen a couple of posts here that I sort of agree with.  Although I value Life,  even the Life of the Unborn Child at least by 3 moths  At Three Months your baby is about 3 inches long and weighs nearly an ounce. Her tiny, unique fingerprints are now in place.  There is an awesome Website I have found it gives a description of detailed development of a baby from the sperm to the birth.     it says that at 15 weeks  -  Your baby's eyelids are still fused shut, but she can sense light. If you shine a flashlight on your tummy, she'll move away from the beam. Ultrasounds done this week may reveal your baby's sex.   Wow.  This website    is  So awesome.  .   Even if You are Pro Choice, I guarantee You that You will like this Website.

As far as the Death Penalty,   I believe in the Death Penalty.  But ONLY with Cases where a sane person has a motive whom it can be proven 100 % - that they committed the Crime.    Crimes such as forcible Rape,  Child Penetrational Rape, Murder and eXtreme torture..   If there is no Proof and Evidence that proves beyond any doubt, with complete Evidence, I believe that the person should not be Killed but watched closely.     I can also understand peoples position against the Death Penalty.  But I still believe that it *( the Death Penalty)  should be done.  Only in Honest cases of evidential proofing/..........

   yea  i know.    .  We know.     Roman Government Media Man Josephus /  pseudo - Jo

  Maybe people are at war with the Roman Catholic Church and The Roman Catholics are no longer able to defend themselves with a military force.  Therefore people find it easy to keep the Church chained to its past,  because they know what the Roman Catholic Church is,  truly.    A force or forum  - that does not allow people to verbaly bad mouth her.  

I have had Roman Catholic friends and I personally loved the heck out of them.  But i will say that  - -- Catholic  Italy fell apart in WW l    -  and fell apart Even more in WW ll.   now Italy is demanding taXes from the Catholic Church.  i wish I could go straight to the Vatican and Help Pope Francis and restore the Military and take control and stop this Anti Catholic horror that is spreading.  But I dont think that the Pope would listen to me.  
it is too Late  i see Pope John Paul began kissing  and hugging His quran and demanding that Muslims are serving his god.  And now Pope Francis is closing the book by  trying to unite heretics with the Church.   I dont even know if a military for the Vatican would work.  They would never prevail with no leadership. God help us.

 ECUMENICAL COUNCIL OF FLORENCE (1438-1445).      "It firmly believes, professes and preaches that all those who are outside the catholic church, not only pagans but also Jews or heretics and schismatics, cannot share in eternal life and will go into the everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels, unless they are joined to the catholic church before the end of their lives; that the unity of the ecclesiastical body is of such importance that only for those who abide in it do the church's sacraments contribute to salvation and do fasts, almsgiving and other works of piety and practices of the christian militia produce eternal rewards; and that nobody can be saved, no matter how much he has given away in al

 I did see another great and interesting post here by someone who boldly addressed Your flattened earth topic and some others rushed to defend and protect the integrity and special innocence of the Catholic Church.

But the problem is - The Roman Catholic Church did not preserve its writings about its faiths concerning the shape of the earth the Sun and Planetary Motions..  It was a non Issue then and it is a non issue now. We know that there is reported, written Evidence that a Man named Galileo lived. Anti Catholics and Catholics both have written about Him and his audience with the Pope. They both agree that he had expressed thoughts and ideas that were not tolerated by the Church and he recanted or ceased in His crimes.

The rest is all disputed from one end to the other.   And that’s it. There is no real way to prove these other details that Anti Catholics and Catholics have eXcept the mutual fact that He eXisted and had an incident with His Church and it was resolved.

We all know this already.  I am not sure what the point of Your topic is.   Please enlighten us.   I love to learn.

Hey there   : -  Mysterious Brony. 

What great topics You have brought up.  

I would Like to discuss the idea / topic of  Jesus Mythicists,  However i know for a fact that this discussion does not go anywhere, as You and the forum have skilfully demonstrated.    
Because there is no way to Prove for a FACT that - The Lord Jesus Christ who Performed  Miracles, rose from the dead and ascended to heaven -  truly eXisted.  There are no Photos, Videos, or Audio.  There are no other Non Biblical Eye Witness accounts recorded in writing eXcept for The Bible Alone.  Sola Scripture.   We know about The Roman Government Media Man Josephus who was and outsider who never witnessed any of these miracles in person and never claimed to have seen Jesus.

Josephus Wrote  “ He appeared to them spending a third day restored to life, for the prophets of God had foretold these things and a thousand other marvels about him ” - Jewish Antiquities, 18.3.3 §63.

There may be a comment somewhere in the archives of Romes library about the mention of Jesus existing as well.    But All of this evidence still does not prove that Jesus performed miracles and rose from the dead.

There is no other Eyewitness account of these miracles eXcept the Gospels. And that is as far as the subject goes.  And we all here already know these things.  So i honestly dont get the point of this topic. 

 Perhaps that is why there are no others typing in Bold type and none of Your topics yet been discussed in this forum.

Galileo was on trial for his Life and future - in Charges of Criminal, Evil activity  -  for demonstration of His best theory of how the Earth was related in the universe.

he was forced to literally RECANT -  ( Change His mind about His Findings and Swear to never repeat them again ).

He Lived the rest of His life underhouse arrest because  He was not interested in endangering His Life and becoming a Scientific Martyr.  The Romantic Catholic Church would have slit His Throat or Burned Him alive.    He was a weakling perhaps and not brave enough to stand up to this horrible Church. 
............... Perhaps he was wize and patient.     In the Following years  - He kept His mouth shut and the Roman Catholic Church could not USE Him to promote their religious Claims.

My Family has always encouraged me to open my Eyes and accept truth and proceed  with the Facts concerning all things.  I am in favor of Organized Religion.  Organization of a Religion ensures that people everywhere have an opportunity to know what eXactly that religion is claiming.

However I understand Your dislike of Organized Religion. I probably Dislike it for the Very same reasons that You do as well.
