i work with this black girl who is deeply religous. (and i'm not). occasionally she will try and "preach to me" . so today we were debating and she tells me that adam and eve were black. so i said " so black people were the orginal sinners". she said yes that is true. i chuckled for a while and she finally says that she can show me documentation that this is true. thoughts please????

Her only documentation is a 2000 year old book....and her "faith"....neither of which comes remotely close to proving anything. Here's a few things you can ask her...... a) When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord (Lev. 1:9). The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them? b) I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her? She's 18 and starting University. Will the slave buyer continue to pay for her education by law ? c) I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness (Lev. 15:19-24). The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense. d) Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? ....Why can't I own Canadians? e) I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should this be a neighborhood improvement project ? f) A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination (Lev. 11:10), it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this? g) Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here? Would contact lenses help ? h) Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev.19:27. How should they die? i) I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves? j) My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? (Lev.24:10-16) Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)

Who cares? They probably weren't white. But arguing relgion never gets anyone anywhere. God Bless Texas

Adam and Eve were proto-human primates. ;)

I did not think anyone around was recording the event? You might ask her where did Cain and Septh's wives came from. Why are there 2 different creation stories in Genesis. Beside A dam (Adam) means Man Best advice just tell her each person is where they need to be in their spiritual life. [:P]

Ok you can tell your co worker this....G-d gave Moshe the T-r-h and the H-ft-r-h, the written and oral word. Adam had two wives his first was Lilith, she was made from the same clay a Adam. She was the first bitch, made his life miserable, G-d cast her out and made Eve from Adam's rib....that is so she would walk by his side and not try to rule him, that is for G-d to do. Therefore she should go home to her man....now if she does not have a man, tell he that by origional Jewish law, you can take her as a wife, you can have more than one. And she can in turn folow the law of the patriarch's

I'd just tell her to "shut the **** up".
