Sometimes i just LOVE to be Jewish. Although Jews are taught many of the same Bible stories as Christians, we are also taught that it is our duty to question them, in order to find the real truth and lessons in the stories. I can't abide by a religion that tells you to just blindly believe.

Well with all due respect... you don't have to. Some people (actually millions of people) are incredibly happy to be Christian.

That's what Anon was saying. You have no "No Ways" so obviously the person who called you a **** was joking.

So what am I supposed to have faith in, exactly: that god created the animals first (Genesis 1:25-1:26), or that he created man first (Genesis 2:18-2:19). Did Jesus rise after three days had passed (i.e. on the fourth day) as prophecied, or did he rise on the third day? These are not deep theological questions, but cases of the bible not even being able to keep the 'facts' straight.

Honestly, I can't speak for all the Christians of the world since everyone thinks a little differently. What I believe is that since stories were passed down for years and years through oral tradition, the art of the language may have changed- many Christian scientists and theologists have some theories to answer your questions, I don't. I just believe that I don't need to know everything and I am happy with what God has given me now.

You will note that you have no 'No Way' votes. I think Anonymouse was just trying to illustrate your point for you, by being rude. (Correct me if I'm wrong).

Umm, no. Reread the verse quoted above. Not only does verse 18 state that his initial motivation to create the animals is to find a helper for adam, it is only _after_ doing and trying to find him an animal helper that he decides that the creation of woman is necessary (verse 20). There really is no avoiding the fact that Christianity is inherently incompatible with any kind of modern feminist thought.

Well, it isn't exactly modern :P And besides Eve, women have done many great things for men since then. Plus God created Adam because he needed help, if God hadn't created Eve Adam would still need help...

Not really, the Old Testament has some laws that apply to the world at the time and some that apply to this time period. We Christians could be pretty offended though, that's more than kind of rude...

Yet the fact remains that according to the bible, women were created as an afterthought for the benefit of men. Stop mincing words.

I'm not, I'm looking at the direct quote you gave. So yes, women were created second. Yes, we benefit men. Therefore, where would men be without us? Oh yeah, nonexistent.

Whoops, you're right. Women were actually created to SERVE men. Genesis 2:18-23:
18 The LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him."

19 Now the LORD God had formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. 20 So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds of the air and all the beasts of the field.
But for Adam no suitable helper was found. 21 So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man's ribs and closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.

23 The man said,
"This is now bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called 'woman'

"help" and "serve" are completely different words, as you clearly did not notice.

I think that **** (being all of someone intimately) should be given only to the one person that is the love of your life, who you'll be with forever. And the ultimate test of that is to be married (ignoring the increasing divorce rate of today). I wouldn't want to give what should be reserved for that one guy to someone who would just be a memory...

I'm also skeptical that even a non-average HS student has access to 10% of what any university student can dig up with proper motivation.

Actually at our school anyway, we get the subscriptions enrolled college kids do at some universities, so that's pretty cool. We may not have the exact same quantity but we still know our stuff when we want to.

AP students have more access than the average high school student.
I'm not wrong. I believe abortion is wrong. In my opinion, every human has a right to have an opportunity to live. There are many, many others that feel the same way as me. I'm sorry you don't feel the same way, but there is no reason to be condescending here.

Or it was assumed that you wouldn't care about any flaws so long as it made abortion look bad. I think this one is most likely.

That doesn't even make sense- high school kids can look up anything college kids can. I think you're judging my experience and knowledge a LITTLE too narrowly.

And you would know so much better? For your information I'm in an AP Statistics class, I know how to read statistics. I'm not attacking you or your beliefs, just giving my opinion, so it would be nice of you to please stop insulting me.
