This, ladies and gentlemen, is the result when one eschews all enlightened literature and instead fixates one's life entirely around vindicating and honoring a set of ancient texts.
Summerlander didn't fictionalized your words, and you know it, Philosopher. You only use this to squirm (rather clumsily) again and again out of encroaching refutation.

Show us the way, transcendental troll..
Your Philosopher pal, there, on the other hand, bears all the hallmarks of a deranged troll. Like Charles Manson, who believed a Beatles album said it all in code, he will tell you about the Book that you are too stupid to interpret, and that he has the right exegesis. Only he doesn't realise that the recommended "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" would not work with someone like Manson, who would kiss his feet and expect the same reciprocity besides other things...

Hey, Summerlander. Have you ever heard of the word "opinion"? Check it out. You might learn something new today.
And Desert, ever heard of someone being wrong or deluded when facts stare them in the face and someone being kind and cool enough to point that out for them?
So quit whining like babies and take criticism.

You know, I can accept facts. You are the one who cannot. Try and accept the fact of different opinions, make up your mind and we'll talk later..

I have spring SAD, and I hate sunlight. So right with you.
I am starting to get really fed up of users constantly getting insulted whenever they try to express an opinion. This is way worse than the Democrats VS Republican debates that go on here in the USA
They will grow up some day and have better things to do.
The base question is, what is life, specifically, life for a mind?
It is written that the heart of man shall be tested. One says that heart is in the chest, one says that heart is a metaphor for mind, what it takes in, is the same as what is inside, and what is inside is what is put out for life. Metaphor indeed!
In reality it is tested with every judgment, just like the lungs are tested with every breath.
For example, a normal human being would say that the Book is contradictory from the start. Take, for example, the two stories of creation. One appears to be a blessing, the other a curse. How stupid does someone have to be to buy into the idea that a great intelligence could start a Book like that?
Then along comes someone as says look, do not examine by appearance, but examine using standards. Such a difference between the two. What does one do? Clearly the two stories contradict each other. It is apparent.
One says they are contradictions, and the other says;
The Serpent spoke in the name of the Lord.
What he said came to pass.
God confirmed his words,
marriage was attained.
Man became like God.
Man was given dominion over the earth.
They say the same thing, but only appear different.
But still one insists, no, one is good and one is bad, just look at them! In one God is pleased, and the other He is angry. In one there is no evil serpent, in the other there is this big bad snake. The other simply says, judge not by appearance, but by righteous judgment. And, do not be a respecter of persons, great or small. But the other insists, God said this, God said that. . . oh dear. You offend our God!
Oh, what a delusion, this one has, he cannot see that they plainly contradict themselves. That God is either supreme or that God is a myth.
How do you test a functional mind? Is it possible, to write a text to test the functionality of a mind? Not hardly, no way! It was written thousands of years ago, similar stories, all different!
Well, the standard IQ test. Which one of these things is the same, and which one really not like the others?
If the mind is responsible for behavior, I suppose you test it like anything else, is it functional, is it making its designed product. Who cares about your religion, philosophy, or opinions, what does it actually do?
Is life really a circus, do we in fact have god on a string, or, is something else actually happening?
