If that's the case, then why does so many people still want creationism to taught in schools, instead of evolutionism?

I don't get it. If Adam and Eve never truly existed then the issue of original sin didn't either. If there is no original sin then there was no reason for Jesus Christ to come to earth and be sacrificed.

If Adam and Eve are metaphors then original sin is also. If original sin is a metaphor then so must be the story of Jesus Christ. If Jesus Christ was a metaphor then could the entire bible simply be metaphorical as well?

God, Heaven, Hell, the ten commandments. All of it. A metaphor. Guidelines on how to live out our lives. Love thy neighbor. Do not murder or steal.

It would make a lot of sense and also explain why there are so many religions, so many guidelines, so many manuals. Why so many religions are so similar, how they have borrowed from each other over the course of history to create what they believe is the perfect manual and way to live our lives.

Using metaphors to suck us in to a story. To make us truly believe. To give us faith and hope and answer all the unanswerable questions.

I suppose my expressing my thoughts like this to a largely religious community will attract scorn and flood me in red thumbs. Ahh well, such is the cost of having an opinion on the internet.

The entire Old Testament is allowed to be looked at as a moral story according to current Catholic statements from Pope Benedict XVI. He has also said that birth control is ok and that atheists can go to heaven. He's pretty hip for a pope and giving Catholics a more modern name

Good portions of the Old Testament are allegorical (such as Genesis) or considered part of the Old Covenant (such as a large number of the Levitical Laws). It still contains truth, so it is still considered important to the Christian faith. Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI never said birth control is ok, he did open some dialogue about the use of condoms between married couple when one of the spouses is infected with HIV. It was ultimately rejected as in compatible with the Catholic faith. He did say that it could be morally better for male prostitutes who are HIV positive to use condoms rather than knowingly risk infecting others. It was a rather specific example and it was not a definitive statement. Pope Francis did say that atheists are redeemed, are capable and obligated to do good and may have a chance of entering Heaven. But he also said that was just a beginning and they should do more to reconcile themselves.

Some pretty big generalizations made there. But seriously, the new pope is pretty cool.

Wait wait wait wait wait lemme get this straight here.
Spend decades as a hardcore catholic priest.
Become Pope however the system works (I'm really completely ignorant on the subject)
Say that god has clarified things to you and to disregard the Bible entirely.
Is that how this stuff works?!

The New Testament is nothing but a clarification. It was God on Earth telling people how it is suppose to be.

So then what was the Old Testament? People abusing their power and lying about what God had told them? There's a big difference between the old and new testament.
#273 - pxthreezerothree (07/12/2013) [-]
The Old Testament is the Jewish Bible. Early Christianity was fundamentally a new form of Judaism and time has widen that divide. Christ Himself is the one who threw out most of the old laws and gave new ones to follow. The Old Testament still contains the Truth but not in the direct way that the New Testament does. So it isn't abuse of power as much as misinterpreting God's will.

You drastically oversimplified it.

I'm sure I did, I'm just asking whether the Pope has the power to discredit the entire Bible on a whim.

Yup, I was just giving a very general statement.
