Cry me a river.
It's physically impossible! Let us estimate that one teardrop is a sphere (5 +/- 2) mm in diameter. This would make its volume to be (1.13 +/- 1.02) x 10-6 m3. Now, suppose we have a modest sized river (20 +/- 5) m wide, and (50 +/- 5) cm deep and (20 +/- 5) km long. The volume of the whole riverbed would then be (2.2 +/- 1.2) x 105 m3. If I was to fill it up by crying, it would take me somewhere around 10^11 tears. Even if I were to cry 10 tears per second for 16 hours non stop every day, it would take me 475 years to fill it up. Since this is an order of magnitude longer than an average human life, I am afraid I cannot do it.

Parsec officially wins.

anyway, back to Chritstianity: Why did God make CR90 so dense?
Didnt he create man in his own image?

What's YHWH's position on homosexuality?

Staying away from Levitical law, the New Testament hints strongly that all sex outside of a heterosexual marriage is sinful. This includes homosexual intercourse (Matthew 19:1-12, 1 Corinthinans 6:9-10).

Whats your middle name?

William

What's your mum's name?
And this is how passwords are recovered.



For that I should ask for his mum's maiden name

But you shall get neither.

Did Jesus ever make out with someone?

Probably not.

I find these answers are without context or mean. BOOOOOOOO. Be more creative.

You think my answers are mean? Although, I will try to reference the Bible more (give more context).

Didnt he create man in his own image?

God only created Adam in his own image (Genesis 1:26), and we all bear his likeness to a certain extent. This is not to say that God is made of flesh and blood and organs  (as he has no purpose for them - John 4:24), but that Adam was a reflection of some of the qualities God saw in himself (inventiveness, ingenuity, leadership, the desire to dominate). Likewise, Adam was created with a perfect body, and only became mortal after he fell out of grace with YHWH. Today we reflect many of the qualities of Adam and God, but we are imperfect because of the fall of man.

I've never read it.

In accordance with Genetics.

And on a more spiritual level as well.

Do animals have souls?

I see no reason to think that they do.

Does anyone like cats. I mean normal people, not weirdo's.

I like really playful spastic cats, but I might be a weirdo.

Do bananas really prove the existance of God?

Not as far as I know.

Did Jesus have siblings?

Yes. The book of James was written by Jesus' half brother (Mathew 12:46).

If Jesis was Gods only son, who was Jesis' mum?
Mary of Nazareth.

And what stopped them having children? Or did they just have daughters?
The Immaculate Conception was a bit of a one-time deal.

No. "God gave the world his only son." Implication that Jesis existed outside the world, in some spiritual plane. Jesis later "returns" to heaven.

I was referring to his Earthly existence.

Christians call him  = Jehovah, or Jah or Yahweh

Jews call him = Yahweh

Muslims call him Allah = but that is more a title and not a personal name.

Rastafarians call him = Jah - yes some take it as serious as a religion and not just a way of life.

I posted short here - since this is the Lounge; I do try.

Discordians call her Eris.

She doesn't really exist in the classical sense, though, so maybe that's irrelevant.

Jesus?

Already answered God in 1 post back.

Jesus in ancient history - a common name at the time, but if you mean the Messiah, then Jesus was his name, and Christ was his title.  (Christian answer)

Name in the heavens - Michael, the archangel. (also Christian answer)

Muslims call him Issa or Isa - in their book or sacred writing Injil, which is part of the Qur'an.  However Issa was only a prophet to them, and not the Son of God.  (Islamic answer)

Was Adam created first, or were both Adam and Eve created at the same time? (Genesis 1 vs Genesis 2)

Adam was created first. This is the only way that the chapters can be interpreted to coincide.

Why did YHWH place a Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil in the center of Eden? What was its purpose, if not to tempt the humans?

The Tree's purpose was to give man the choice as to whether or not he wanted to follow the will of God, which continues to this day.

If Jesis was Gods only son, who was Jesis' mum? And what stopped them having children? Or did they just have daughters?

Jesus wasn't created via procreation. Since he is part of the Godhead, he has always existed (John 1:1-5).

Are things good because god says them or does he say them because he's good?

Morality is inseparable from God's character. This is not a tautological argument, that God=good, but rather that God is characterized by his goodness. We as humans are able to come to many of our own concepts of morality thanks to reasoning and intuition, God in his omniscience understands it better. In other words, we need no outside definition of "good".

To the OP,

Why do we need God?

If God is real, good, and omniscient and he says that we need him, then it would follow that he is correct. The issue is whether or not you believe that God is real, good, and omniscient.

What is God's real name?

God refers to himself by many names.

Adam was created first. This is the only way that the chapters can be interpreted to coincide.
Genesis 1 27: So God created man in his own image,
       in the image of God he created him;
       male and female he created them.


This seems to say that when YHWH created mankind, he created both the male and the female.

Why did YHWH place a Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil in the center of Eden? What was its purpose, if not to tempt the humans?

The Tree's purpose was to give man the choice as to whether or not he wanted to follow the will of God, which continues to this day.
YHWH wishes to deny mankind knowledge?

Yes. The book of James was written by Jesus' half brother (Mathew 12:46).

Yes but 3 other half brothers and some half sisters.  Other brothers were Joseph, Simon, and Judas or Jude. 

Jesus' half brother Judas/Jude wrote the Book (or the Letter) of Jude in the NT. (Not Judas Iscariot - traitor, and also NOT Judas son of James)
