Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

    Okay this thread was started to discuss Brokeback mountain not religion. But in any case, I will join in on the action.

    Proving that God exists is fairly easy. Everything in our universe follows a cause and effect relationship...follow this all the way to the beginning ...to the Big Bang (The big bang must have therefore been an effect of yet another cause--step in God).

    Proving that Christianity is the right faith is tough. First with respect to Islam, the newer of the three major religions, Mohammed wasn't a true prophet. You see Christ knew he himself was God, right from the very beginning. If you are a prophet...trust me you know. Mohammed on the other hand at first thought the devil was messing with his head--clearly not a sign of a true prophet.
    Judaism and Christianity are basically the same thing. They believe in the same God (as opposed to Allah, who is contemplated by some scholars to be a different God than that which Christianity and Judaism refer to). Judaism is based off of the old testament, which we Christians abid to as well. For them however, their Messiah hasn't come, for us, we are basically xxxs with a Messiah. But Christ changed a lot of things in the old testament...made them more appropriate so to speek. For instance, in the old testament, it says that "an eye for an eye"...if someone does something bad to you, you do it back to them...in the new testament, you turn the other cheek. If human nature at all tells us something, if our hearts tell us something, clearly changing the other cheek shows more superior control of yourself...is much more human...there are a lot of subtle things that Christ changed. Above all, he said that love surpasses any law....
    I love Christ....from my perspective, faith in him has done me great things....not physical things....but just great things
    Hold on their cowboy. Lol, kidding. That was part brilliant.

    But I dont like bring up the idea of intelligent design (which is what u described) because it is still a theory (just like evolution). But it does make perfect scense.

    Lamb boy, start a thread about this and will tell u what the bible says about incest.

      Well first welcome to the forums that aren't afraid to wander within a given topic. I'm sure we can all handle that fact although I feel Siggie likes this fact not.

      Next all I have to say is the question could not be more simple yet ALWAYS and not just from ppl here seems to involve a lengthy discussion on the origins of this religion, and for an even less noticeable reason goes into the validity of a God. It's really easy question I don't see why the answers have to be so complicated ... lol
