-What is different from animals and believers? They both follow a script. Is there a difference?
A better question might be What's the difference between animals and non-believers.....
but I agree with sandra rinck---on both...(animals are innocent)...
Do animals and believers not follow a script?
Animals follow their instincts, if you wanna call that a script...
Believers actually deny much of their "animalistic instincts" in order to follow Christ, because we were created with a higher decision-making capability than animals.
I meant that animals follow natures script. Believers follow the bibles script. We have the ability to individualize from the script, yet believers follow. This is where I am making the relation of believers and animals.
What's your point?
....Believers follow, yes. And it's because we know there's something (actually Someone!) who's so much...MORE...than we are....
i agree, animals are innocent and therefore, not accountable for their sometimes violent actions. instinct is part of the 'script' for all living things, but Man ignores his instinct through rationalization, sometimes to his detriment.
Well said. And then believers get faith and throw rationalization and logic out the window.
You ever hear the old saying,'Lame as a Liberal.'
you can argue this point with God someday I am sure He will get a big kick out of your "logic". LOL
I would enjoy a debate with your government God. Afterall, he created the individual mind right? If he wanted everyone to be robotic sheep, he should have created all with follower minds.
debate and or argue with God? Ok if you say so.
thinking themselves wise they became as fools...
The difference is human mind
animal follow their instincts
Believers their dreams.
Everyone is a believer of something.
Believers in a God try to follow directions as best as they know.
If we are not going anyplace in particular, any road will take us there. If we have a particular destination in mind we will need to follow a map.
Well, as we are animals...just with conscious and higher intellect...and animals have their tradeoff of smell, strenght, speed.
Anyhoo, animals, aside from us, behave in my opinion less barbaric, selfishly, and aren't so corrupt. Nonetheless, humanity is intriguing.
..You also said "unconscious"....
It's not uncoscious.
It's a very conscious knowledge of God...
I am an individual who thnks in logical terms and learns things from many different experiences which lead me to conclude the truth in a given matter.
You ass / u / me ...me to have many things I do not.
You said before that you are a prophet. Your name is "left hand of God" God is defined from the bible. The bible is a 1 belief system contradicting your individual mind.
Nothing I have read and now believe from any book contradicts my individual anything at all. I prove things to myself first.
Use logic to draw a conclusion.
If I am working on my car I read the repair manual to learn.
You still assume much about me and are trying to lump me into your belief so you can label it and move out.
I have no label and am even rejected by people who say they are believers.
Quit wasting time trying to convince me of something I am NOT !!
I can think like an individual or like a group, it depends on the situation at hand and what is the best thing at the moment.
In a fire~fight, group is good.
Taking a piss, individual is good.
If you believe in an individual belief, why did you jump on the believer train to assault me for my individual ideas that the bible is a simple conspiracy to group belief? I didn't see your individualism to ask questions of my idea. All I seen was a believer trained assault. Protect the faith. I must say, I am very impressed by what you wrote. Sounds like you have a strong individual mind that has no need of a grouped belief. I simply don't understand why you define God in your name. God is defined from a grouped belief. Not an individual belief.
If you are speaking of humans and mammals, then yes, they are quite different.
Mammals rarely feast on their own kind ...

Hi friends“Recently a study showed that many ministers don’t believe what they preach. They claim to know what they preach is wrong, but go on preaching it.”One may think: Can a blind man show path to a blind man? If the pastors don’t know; how could they teach others to know?It is so simple to...

Do you believe that making this world a better place by the life they live is something that could be considered a worthwhile pursuit by atheists and theists alike? How do these two groups differ in the practice of that pursuit? Is the difference if any explainable by their belief or...

On several hubs and forums, I see a lot of my fellow (to an extent) believers posting about how God give us the free will to do things our way, then on other hubs state that we must "Pray that God's will be done" in everything we do.. If we have to pray to God for his will to be done,...
