Interesting. I have never been on a page like this. Certainly feels great to be outside of facebook! ;)

What would you even do in the instructable? You CREATE stuff on this website. YOU not god or whatever. But yeah, going so far to use a DIY site to convert people is going too far. It makes you look bad.

Sorry but that just sounds as if converting people into christianity is a really good thing. As if people who aren't christian don't understand anything about christianity & need "help" and "support"

1. Check the dates of comments you are replying to.

2. Define "truth".

I'm lost as to how someone found this, this topic is going on 6 years old. I haven't been around enough to know, is there a way to disable comment on an old forum forum topic, or is deleting it the only option?

Google is probably to blame.

As far as I know, the only way to prevent more comments is to delete it.

It's not causing any harm, though, and is tending to keep conversations on the same theme in the same place.

It's true, I imagine it's not as hard to find as I think it is. Ah well, I'll leave it then. If it manages to lead to some decent discussion then I'll be happy.

1. I did and decided it didn't matter.

2. Human beings, due to the sin of Adam, were, are, and will be until the Second Coming of Christ, born with an evil sin nature. This is the part of you that wants to gratify your evil desires, and it is the part that goes against God. As God cannot have sin in His presence, humanity would be doomed to Hell for eternity. God loved humanity so much, however, that he instead sent a part of Himself, Jesus, to take mankind's penalty for eternity in the space of a few hours. This was what happened as Jesus was dying on the cross. Three days later, He was resurrected. After spending some more time with his disciples, Jesus went back up to Heaven. Now, in order for you to avoid an eternity in Hell, all you have to do is believe what I just told you. Accept that you have a problem (sin), and that Jesus removed that problem by taking your punishment on the cross. If you do believe this, then after you kick the bucket you will go to Heaven and stay forever.

P.S. Sorry about the Halo vs. Star Wars format argument.

(Note, this is an intellectual argument, not intended in a spirit of animosity)

Why should we accept your Truth, over the similar Truths of Islam, Buddhism or the Hopi Indians?

Why should we accept your Truth, when it contradicts the evidence we see around us?

Actually, i was thinking of doing a paper origami cross, this would easily fit on this website, and be Christian based, also, alot of projects like the 'How to thanks instructables' share a Christian moral standpoint of giving. Also, both reviving old topics and hating on religious people will do nothing but annoy people..

Theologically, christian morality, and Christianity can be very different. By morally christian, i am saying morally like jesus, and, if you actually read the bible, whether you consider it fiction or not, the charictor of jesus symbolizes a 'morally perfect human'

But if you mean morally like Jesus, why couldn't we use a different religions' character for the term? Morally like Horus?

Jake, I agree with Stake's underlying argument here. The statement you actually made,

alot of projects like the 'How to thanks instructables' share a Christian moral standpoint of giving.

certainly gives the appearances of divisiveness and discrimination. On it's face, it clearly presumes that only Christians have a "moral standpoint". That is unfair and inaccurate.

Not at all, i guess it is a PC term that we use over here, essentially, its a way of saying that a person believes and follows all the christian models that underlay our society through a history of a mainly christian society. eg, alot of handed down values stemming from christianity. also note, that i didn't specify it as the only standpoint, and that project shared the set of moral guidelines. Also, this is a clear reminder of why religious conversing is better reserved for a chatroom, or real life situation.

Now, i wish i was able to explain things like that in one comment...

Truth is, the community is that 'tight' on here, i often forget that people are on the otherside of the world.
I don't sleep normal times, so the time zones go out the window..

Without being PC, I would like to remind you that making a claim like "our society through a history of a mainly christian society" excludes a majority of the population, and definitely excludes a number of I'bles members.

Derinsleep, in Turkey, would probably not describe his "our society" as "mainly Christian." Neither Indians nor Chinese would describe their "our society" as "mainly Christian." I don't think Israelis would describe their "our society" as "mainly Christian."

Just something to keep in mind when generalizing from your personal experience.

I recently saw a documentary suggested Jesus was actually Horus. Much like Christianity has adopted pagan rituals and custom, the figure Horus was adopted from Egyptian mythology (there are a number of similarities). I am not saying this to be controversial, or to offend anyone, I'm just saying that there is a documentary about this theory

there are many instructables that tell you about something, and not how to do something.

this is not only a DIY site, goto the home page and read what it says in the blue bar at the top of the browser(i have firefox):

"make, how to, and DIY"

you can show someone how to accomplish something with out doing anything.

like a instructable on c++ programing, it does not really have a end product, but is very helpful and a instructable none the less.

You're very right, DSMAN! We have plenty of procedural I'bles. Some of them (How to thank Instructables, How to deal with harassment, Goodhart's T-Shirt) are among the best (and most "Christian," if you have to apply a discriminatory label) of anything on the site.

How are those "christian" Ibles? If its because the instructable has good morals or whatever, it doesnt mean it is christian.
