>Once again Jim you have compleaty missed my point so I will try to make my point more clear. First ,I did not mean that I never listened to my parents, I meant that I learned some things on my own.You know, through life experience. Second, treating people well is a simple thing and has nothing to do with god. Anyone with an open mind can see(even those who were indoctrinated at childhood to believe in farie tales)that morality does not comes from god. I remind you that a vast majority of the world is god fearing. How is that working out. Third, when I asked about the tree of knowledge I was making a point. It is this,if god wanted man to learn he would have told man to eat from the tree. That seems to be logical don't ya think? Now I don't want to insult your beliefs an if I have I'm truly sorry. A little story. When I was in school years ago ( grade 6 I think at a catholic school) my teacher a nun was teaching us about debating. We were to debate whether cars or horses were better and she chose who would be on each side. I was chosen to take the side of horses. Not fully understanding I said horses were better than cars because god made horses and cars were made by man. She stopped me and explained to me that this was not a valid argument. A nun said this. Can you guess why? Jim, you have been debating now for a long time with another fellow about Obama. Both you guys disagree on a lot but I'm sure you both agree that Obama exists. See my point. If I said that Bin Laden was still alive we might have a debate about just this however if I said he is alive and the reason no one has seen him because he found the one ring(lord of the rings) and became invisible then that would spark an argument as to whether the one ring exists. See my point. If you ask if gods plan is for man to leave earth then you spark a debate about the existance of god. Unlike the Obama point not everybody believes god exists. If you want to debate the existance of god then that's fine, I'm happy to do this as I find it an interesting subject and I suspect there are others who enjoy it as well. But there is no need to disguise your intentions with another subject. All you need to do is say " I believe in god wanna argue" and people will.
