I went ahead and watched the replay tonight having missed it on Sunday night, and I don't think it's epic or must see TV. I like Keith David's narrations. He's smooth. They just kind of skimmed over Ishmael, and historically he is as important a character as Moses and Jesus.
What part of these statements are not factual? (And in parentheses is my original statements which are basically the same thing)
1. Christians believe in god. ( god does not need to perform miracles in order for people to believe in him)
2. Christians believe god works in their lives. (God is changing people's lives as us.)
And let's add...
Atheists do not believe in god.
Which is also a factual statement.
The fact that we're discussing this is laughable and is the biggest revolving door I've ever been a part of.
The fact that my statements are true and factual has absolutely nothing to do with whether you feel there is no god.

And im also done with this. I only engaged b/c I thought maybe people were actually curious but obviously not, these types of discussions cannot be had on a message board.
If anyone is really interested I'd be glad to meet offline, share my testimony and talk about it.
Enjoy the show.
I believe in Santa Claus and that he is affecting positive change in my life...guess it's a fact!
I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It's all in the game though, right?
They are not basically the same thing. One is a statement of what Christians believe. The other is a statement made as if it were a fact that what the Christians believe is true. There is a difference and it is plain as day.

For such a time as this.
We should turn over a new leaf.
You've been killing it recently.
...I actually agree. I want Omar to like me now.
"It's just so hard," Greivis said. "It's my heart, my love. Maryland made me who I am."
Haha thanks. As long as you don't insist we should tank this season, we're cool :) I'll buy you a beer at an O's game this year to signal our newfound truce. Raise, we're cool...not you're fault you had to be born in Western PA.

No, you are right, the real star of the Bible is Jesus, but he doesn't make a physical appearance until later in the story. If the show were called the Koran, then it might go deeper into Ismael and the difference in the promise/covenant that God made him and the promise/covenant that God made to Abraham.
Still the series kind of jumped over the events surrounding Ishmael and the same with Israel's sin of idolatry with the golden calf. They just kind of skipped it to move the story along. Now I don't expect the series or the book to change some people's belief of whether there is a God or not, but if God singled any of them out and spoke to them as the Bible story and the series shows him speaking to the Biblical Patriarchs, they might actually change their minds about God's very existence.
The first two hours the show covered Noah, Abraham and Moses any one of which could have taken the full two hours. Im sure you remember Charlton Heston in the Ten Commandments. Of course the quality and detail of that movie far surpasses this series even the Bible: In the Beginning made in 1966 with John Huston and Richard Harris was a better adaptation and better done IMHO.
What this series does is open the discussion of God from a biblical prospective and allows those that genuinely seek to find answers to pursue them on their own. And yes the Wat was directed at Ismael being talked about in the same breath as Moses and Jesus.
Going to miss this episode but hopefully the Terps make my drive to UVA worth it.
Wow. This is NOT roomy!
Below is a link to the first of a series of 4 brief Youtubes from my Pastor on How to Be a Better Atheist. He's a very gifted guy and approaches the subject with a great respect for the world view; sees its affinity with Christianity; and lays out how atheism can end up guiding you to some of the same places as Christianity. NOT a conversion series, but for me, a struggling but pretty strong believer, helps me understand why it's turned out that I'm very comfortable with atheists and Christians alike.
Samson was kind of a badass, huh?
He was kind of a dumbass.
Well Delilah was a woman, she was fine and fair,
She had good looks, God knows, and coal black hair,
Delilah she gained old Samson's mind.
When first he saw this woman, you know he couldn't believe his mind.
Delilah she climbed up on Samson's knee,
Said tell me where your strength lies if you please.
She spoke so kind and she talked so fair,
Well Samson said, Delilah cut off my hair.
You can shave my head, clean as my hand
And my strength will become as natural as any old man.
If I had my way, if I had my way, if I had my way,
I would tear this old building down.
You read about Samson, all from his works,
He was the strongest man that ever had lived on earth.
One day when Samson was walking along,
Looked down on the ground, he saw an old jawbone.
He stretched out his arm, God knows, chains broke like thread,
When he got to moving, ten thousand was dead.
Now Samson and the lion, they got in a tack,
Samson he crawled up on the lion's back.
You read about this lion, he killed a man with his paws,
But Samson got his hands around that lion's jaws.
He ripped the beast till he killed him dead.
The bees made honey in the lion's head.

Now that is funny.
History just released a statement about it via their Facebook page saying they respect the president and had no intention to make that parallel.
Half the comments are people saying "How can you say you respect him when he's a MUSLIM. I'm not watching your show anymore."
God this country is full of morons.
That straight up looks like Darth Maul without the face paint.
"And I try to har-mo-nize with songs the lonesome sparrow sings...
There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden."
Don't they mean Satin?
