Nevertheless, you have to admit there's an odd connection between between burn flesh/hot metal and the smell of space.
I still maintain the odds for a connection are pretty damn good, or perhaps the gods had a taste for BBQ. chuckle.gif

"Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens"
Genesis 1:26

Which means to me that they look like us or we look like them. It also says "our likeness" meaning more than 1 "god".

Yahweh is the "maker" of heaven and earth and original. When the Bible says "God" it means Yahweh its just translated which I am sure you know already.

I've seen that "our" interpreted as the holy trinity. dunno.gif Never made sense to me as Jesus would not come along for a few million years. chuckle.gif
My personal take on that is they gave us freewill. "Our likeness" may have well been knowing both good and evil and to have the ability to choose as opposed to a physical likeness.
One expects ET to have a physical body, as opposed to the creator who would have no need for that.
However, The Torah (Old testament) clearly and unequivocally states God appeared in physical form for Moses, Abraham and Jacob.
"The LORD would speak to Moses face to face, as a man speaks with his friend." Exodus 33:11
That's pretty clear. So is God a physical or ethereal entity? Then the New Testament contradictions come into play...

"No one has seen God at any time . . . ." (John 1:18)

"God is spirit . . . ." (John 4:24)

"the invisible God" (Col. 1:15)

"invisible" (1 Tim. 1:17)

This whole deal has admittedly perplexed me for a number of years.

Why create this place???,,,

one theory is for HIS amusement,,,

sometimes walks around,,,sometimes not so much,,,

must really like a challenge,,,huh???...

What makes you think he's an atheist? There are in fact a whole colorful basket of creation myths and they're very interesting. Just because one was decided by whoever thought they had spiritual authority over me doesn't mean it's not just one of many wonderful stories from all over the world.

I think he is an atheist because he said "myths" plural meaning that all creation stories are myth

Also being an atheist is not bad thing and calling a person an atheist is not an insult

I think that's more of a semantic issue. I think myth in the sense of not very easily verifiable as something that actually happened. So yes I don't see why any other of them could have been equally true? Or is it something that happened so long ago that our retelling of it became like a game of broken phone?

Well thats true seeing as how we cant verify any religion or creation story but that can really be said about all ancient history.

We believe that king tut existed but we cant really prove it all we have is writings and artifacts.

The insult, to me, is to my intelligence,
when people seem to think "Yahweh"
more real than any other deity ever
worshiped by humans.

Don't you bloody get it? chuckle.gif

Oh, never mind.

Where would they get the idea that would please the gods?

Myth or not, the first to burn a sacrifice to God was Cain, it was his idea, and he sacrificed his crop not flesh.

The idea and does it make sense?
Cain was the first human born to the first couple. Now imagine this boy, in a way lonely, he had only his parents to communicate with and socialize. His parents who had encounters with God would teach him to please God. Cain learned to be a farmer and was successful in growing crops. Now if it was you, and wanted to be thankfull, how would you please God? We could come up with a couple of ideas, but certainly in that instance to offer land's produce does'nt just make sense, but it is also a great idea.

Later came the 2nd born, Abel who grew up to be a shepherd. He followed his parents teachings and his brother's rituals, burning cattle instead of crop.

The story continues and says that Abel offered the best of his flock while Cain was not as generous in his selection. Then we know came the murder, Abel became a marthyr and hero, while Cain the villain.

Original idea continues with next siblings?
It makes sense that Abel was the only role model to his next siblings.
The buring sacrifice of cattle obviousely became one of the first traditions.

Myth or not the story of the first sacrifices is a big lesson to us.

In the beginning was the virgin Iro,
who gave birth to three sons:
Joukahainen, Wäinämöinen and Ilmarinen.

The world came about, because a bird nested
on Wäinämöinen's knee - while he was happily
floating on his back on the primordial waters -
and he accidentally shuffled the eggs overboard.
One of them cracked open and became Kaleva.

And yeah, around here, most peoples did not
burn the sacrificial animals at Midvinterblot.
They hung them from trees, it seems.

There was always smoke-saunas, though doobie.gif
