Cortnie | 103 comments well, what else did you guys think they did for entertanment, besides putting on plays and dromas? They made up stories, or poems as they had been called. that's also where they got their plays from.

Amy (Runawaymarbles) I think someone whispered something, and it spread. Where do the Bible stories come from? It was their religion. They though it happened. Maybe it did, maybe there was a basis for it, maybe a storyeller got drunk.

Did you know that they used things like LSD, unknowingly, thinking it made the Oracle connect to the gods, when really the Oracle was just hallucinating?


message 6: by Jenn (new)

Jenn i didnt know that but im not surprised...lol

message 9: by Amy (new)

Amy (Runawaymarbles) I wonder what the religion was CALLED? Do you think in a thousand years the bible will be 'european mythology'?

message 12: by Amy (new)

Amy (Runawaymarbles) I think someday people won't believe in any religion anymore.

i think that you have to believe in someting i personally prefer the science way around everything rather than baseing my way of thinking on a mythical creature what ever you call it


message 22: by Cortnie (new)

Cortnie | 103 comments I'm agnostic. i believe in evolution. i think religion is good, but sometimes it can cause conflixs, just look at the world today. Muslems call us 'Non-Believers' and now they're wraging war on us because we don't believe in their own religion. yeah, you can tell i'm not a religious person. never have, never will.

Victoria (vikkitori22) | 338 comments Mod

i can see where you are going. but here's another question: how would you define the words extraordinary. and miracle?


message 32: by Victoria (new)

Victoria (vikkitori22) | 338 comments Mod
thats is how i would discribe them. they dont have to have a name, they in them selfs would be extraordinary and mirical! not everything that is unexplainable has to have the name god or jesus


message 33: by jake4evs (new)

jake4evs (smyle94) | 258 comments Mod
yep yep

no your right not everythin unexplainable HAS to have the name of God, but assuming God is the Father and Creater of all ,so we label it so that it does.

you know there is an arguement between a college professor and his 2 students, one backs down, but the other..well i'll just send it to you


message 35: by Victoria (new)

Victoria (vikkitori22) | 338 comments Mod
no WE dont YOU do... thats another thing that gets me... in my perspectivee god isnt the creater of all


message 36: by Desi (new)

Desi | 191 comments Mod
we in general.not specifically you and me. that wouldnt be a fair arguement.
