although the Bible has been translated many times into many different languages nothing has really been changed. this conclusion has been reached by scholars who know the original language, or something very close to it.

Jesus was trying to prove to the Jews that he was the mesiah they had been looking for. he was not trying to change the Bible, he was fulfilling the prophecies. since man's fall into sin, God has been promising a mesiah would come and save them. that is what Jesus did.

as to my beliefs being based on what others have told me, where did they get the beliefs? if every single human being only believes what they are told, who told the first one?

Knowing the original language, firstly still leaves room for misinterpretation, doesn't mean they have all the original materials. And this claim of scholars proving anything about the validity and lack of change is incorrect. The fact that there are different versions confirms the alterations for one, and its scholars that I get some of my info from to, and they talk about the changes implemented by ruling factions throughtout the years by those who had enough power or clout to do so.

who says we do? thats the whole point behind impulses, instincts, obsessions, desires, needs, self preservation.

These types of things appear to actually dictate our very thought patterns and what we do and say.

The argument is all too commonly made that people have free will and can easily decide either to do something or not, yet they say they are imperfect and don't even have the option of not sinning, meaning we can't control all our sins, meaning we don't have complete free will. Thinking everything has to be one way or the other is so what people need to get over, they say one way is good because it fits with productive society, and vice versa. And with a completely faulted notion of free will then go on to dub people as bad when they "sin".

The truth seems to be that everybody is just both right and wrong, there are 2 sides to every story, there is truth and lies in all we say.

your right, people do not have complete free will. but as to people being responsiple when they sin. if your looking at twenty bucks you'd really like to have sitting there on the table, your thinking about all the moralalities, consquences and gains involved with your taking that twenty dollars. you choose whether you do it or not, because at some point the impulses balance out, and you have to choose.

wow, well i was the one who first posted a msg on this particular board. I haven't checked it 'til today and I'm pretty amazed with the kind of responses I received. Though it did get a little 'religious' on me, it definitely brought upon new questions to boggle my mind with. Just remember when replying to a msg to let go of your attachment of being right, and suddenly your mind is more open. You're able to benefit from the unique viewpoints of others without being crippled by your own judgment.

and 'reality' is the only word that should ALWAYS be used in qoutes.

Hope the religious aspects haven't bothered you, its just the only information of debate, its the religious people that think they have an answer.

Your earlier point of conformity is a social issue, and can be debated as well as you said, but when defining reality itself, know one knows, but some still think they do anyway.

I think one thing that separates us from animals is our lack of simple thoughts. There will always be confusions in life, no matter how hard we try and combat them.

I've accepted life for what it is, i'm thankful I was born, but I accept that one day I am going to die.

Religion is purely a reason to comfort everyone, as no-one likes the idea of infinity, of nothing happening.

The question is, would you rather prefer an eternity of living in an afterlife, never being able to rest again, never being able to wake up, or never stop living until we've figured out what the all important meaning of life is?

Its either one or the other, or both.

Its all very subjective, remember.

Keep things simple, and keep things in perspective.

Our lack of simple thoughts, what does that mean, I think with the answer to a question all thoughts are simple. And how simple a thought is is quite relative don't you think, a subjective notion at best?
