The Middle East

What should be done about Jerusalem? It's sacred to so many different people, and the issue needs to be resolved before we have a Nuclear Crusade on our hands. What is your standing on the importance of religious values? Which religion is more valuable? Who gets Jerusalem? Why?

    Jul 23 2012: What should be done about Jerusalem? It should be replaced with a new one just as the Holy Bible says it will be in Chapter 21 of the book of Revelation.

      Jul 23 2012: Hi Edward:
      Just that what you said is impossible .

        Jul 23 2012: Oh please, EG, you know you cannot prove a negative. You may choose to not accept it as truth, but you cannot prove it to be untrue. Before 1948 you might well have said the existence of a sovereign nation called Israel is impossible. With God, nothing is impossible. Thank you!
        • Jul 23 2012: Easy Edward. This thread is about the ownership of Jerusalem, not attacking people who don't share your beliefs, or stating your religious beliefs. EG, I hope in the future, you will remind people of the topic at hand like I just have, because your comment was a little offensive as well. And an example of things in the bible that seem impossible but could have happened, Moses parting the red sea. Scientists have looked at core samples that show an earthquake of magnificent scale occued around that period of history. That earthquake could have created a land bridge. The bible is just words. The traditional visualizations aren't necessarily true to the letter. Edward is right, you can't prove a negative statement on a positive statement that has just as much trouble being proven. Religion of the individual aside, both of you please answer the question.

          Jul 23 2012: I agree with you , Edward but for us it is still impossible (lol).


          Paul :

          The comments can be offensive and on topic at the same time , I think mine was and Edward's too , actually .
          Did the scientist prove that ? Or is just bullshit from internet ?
