Great-grandparents, whatever.

Maybe it would be more accurate to say what are the nationalities of your ancestors. /shrug

Jewish? D'oh! Sorry, couldnt resist that one :dbanana Feel free to take a few potshots at me.

As for myself, let's see...

Lebanese on my mothers side, about a 25%. Don't know about any other part of her side though.

On Daddy's side, Scottish mostly, some Irish and I guess a little German thrown in for flavor

Mostly Norwegian on dads side, except his mother, who desends from pre-revolutionary war english immigrants. Traced all the way back to King John there.

My kids, though, can claim (through my wife's family) a great uncle who was the only member of the Dalton gang to ride out of Coffeyville Kansas alive. He had eleven slugs in him, and he fell out or the saddle, dead, a mile out of town. Another of them designed one of the feed systems for the gatling gun. My great-grandpa hid behind a rain barrel while the James gang was shooting the h#ll out of Northfield, MN.

Can't remember the details much anymore. Got to try a free trial of one of those Geneology sites.

Probably bogus, but a free search revelaed info about a supposed ancestor. A Baron, from Norway it says. That lead some kind of battle in France.

Either helping to open a can of whoop ass on France. Or more impressively, and yet some how far less likely. Leading them to a military victory.

and in response to - "I thought it had been settled that life cannot naturally arise out of non-life.
ie, there had to have been something there to begin with." (Ziska)

Not debating religion with this, Ziska, but no, this was not established. According to scientific research and experiments done on the subject, with the right conditions - energy sources, chemicals that make up molecules of life, the building blocks of life can naturally arise from "non-life", molecules, atoms. Then these combine to form life, again with the right conditions.

I met a Catholic priest who said, "What difference does it make if God chose to create Man through the wonder of evolution rather through blowing on a handful of dust? Is the miracle any less great?" I thought it was a nice statement.

Darwin believed in God.

Not that this would bother a catholic, but it makes a difference because the bible says the world was created in 6 days, not via evolution.

And yes, darwin believed in a god. Most people do. The difference is whether they believe in a standoffish, diest god, or an interventionist God.

I'm not sure what you mean by this, Ziska, that it wouldn't bother a Catholic. If you mean they don't care about the Bible as being true, you are wrong. Some do, some don't, just as with many religions. Can't argue that one with me since I was raised Catholic, very devout Catholic mother, attended Catholic schools most of my life.

Now evolution is allowed to be taught in schools, not as a fact, but as another possible method of creation, since it has become impossible for most people to deny the evidence of the age of the Earth, the existence of fossils, etc.

The Christian bible was written by men, over a long period of time. I think it is good that the Catholic church can acknowledge that it may not be accurate in everything, while still maintaining the important teachings that make us want to be good people.

If this wasn't what you meant, then I apologize. :)

mostlymad
20 Sep 04,, 04:54
forgot - what the preist meant by what difference does it make was don't be concerned about things like how god did it, only that he did it, and focus on the more important aspects of spirituality.

well, that is what creationists have been saying for ages.

And about the catholics, they hold that the church is necessary to interperet the bible. So it doesn't really matter what you think the bible says. What matters is what the church says.

And as soon as you take the opinion that the bible was written by man and may contain errors, how can you believe any of it?

It's more than an opinion; the new testament states which disciple wrote what. As for not believing any of it - is it not possible to recognize that some parts may be true, while others are not? That's like saying if you lie once, everything you say is a lie, or if you make one mistake, everything you do is a mistake.

Thought I knew my ethnicity.

But then Xingpindpoyang or something (do forgive me since I can't remember the exact name) said I am a monkey. Being the wise Communist all knowing sage, I reckon the Red book cannot be doubted! ;) He has read Darwin apart from the All Embracing Mao's Red Crap! :) But Darwin is a bum. Mao the Great Helmsman is the panacea of all sociatal issues.

He should know. He is the vanguard of the Red Brigade and the leader of the peasant and the labourer class yelling 'Red Salute'. All excepting the Communists are monkeys. I wonder what they are!

It is you, the capitalists, who don't understand the verities of life. Only the Commies do like the one who is to succeed Hu flung what? Liaoxingzang or whatever be the name is the next one to succeed.

Kowtow Kowtow chaps. That is if you know what is good for you :biggrin:

Not that this would bother a catholic, but it makes a difference because the bible says the world was created in 6 days, not via evolution.



Rather Talibanish and Wahabi.

Then what the differnce between modern Christianity and the Wahabis?

We stop using our brains and go gung ho on religious stuff that are suspect in modern times?

Much of all this is to make the illiterates understand the power of God and explain things which otherwise could not be explained in those times.

Those who cling to Biblical words without the intelligence of the modern world are archaic and no better than the Moslems who believe that the Sharia is the last word in life. Stuff written when men were still in a trauma of evolution from monkeys to modern mankind!

If I may add.

The Clash of Civilisation is not about what or who is you God.

It is the clash of modernity with medieval crap, totally pout of synch with the contemporary world.

A very Marxist statement. " Clash etc. " is historisist, then followed - quite literally - by a modernist assertion. Modern times would suggest the clash of Civ or indeed Civs is very much about "what or who is your God/god". Dialectical materialism, doctrinal schism, Issac vs Abraham uns. ...
