You mean a "wrong" translation from Carl Ernst, Kenan Distinguished Professor of Islamic Studies at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, Director of the Carolina Center for the Study of the Middle East and Muslim Civilizations. How do your qualifications in Arabic stack up with Dr. Ernst?s
To my way of thinking, I see the Bible as a collection of metaphorical stories made up of wishful thinking, nightmares promoted to reality, and/or someone smoking what the drug of choice was back then (opium?).
They all seem on this same level to me.
Actually he ran over the fat chick. The alt-left professor is the one that had the rifle. You know the story, right? The media didn't cover it, Cuz one of the darling left had an AR-15
The historicity of Jesus has more proof and grounding than that of Aristotle or Plato. Do you read books about how they didn't physically exist. Or take Napoleon. There is more historicity in Christ than that of Napoleon. Do you doubt Napoleon existed.
the concept of an open mind (the ability to see the other side) is directly related to our sense of self esteem and security. Those that cannot look outside their own box tend to be quite insecure.

Thank you, which brings me right back to my point about Adam being the Federal head of humanity, because he is the only one who received this breath of God textually, and that not until the second Creation story in Genesis 2. If someone isn't alive before they are born, then why do they grow, and move, and react, and consume food? That seems pretty odd for a non-living thing. It's not even doubtful they're human at that stage, either. But to answer your question, a woman could have multiple children at one time (Genesis 38:27, where a woman had two sons, and no one guessed that apparently until the time of birth), and also, actually being born is not as high a probability back then as it is today (under normal medical conditions, leaving deliberate abortions aside), so there is no point in counting what you cannot see and cannot guarantee. But there was probably more to that, as well. But I don't know exactly what you are talking about when you mention an abortifacient for a woman? Where is that?
Heartlessness is a lack of love more than a lack of justice, particularly considering how some peoples view of justice is totally lacking in love. (ie - "hangings too good for him" that type of person isn't interested in "justice," rather they are interested in
Other than instant death from a catastrophic collision, my experience of death is one of a loss of dignity.
