That would be really bad mix with the matches. :o

That was what I was thinking as well.  I think a better reword of what I meant would be that Uriel may not have existed since Creation, but the being we call Uriel might have in different forms.  After all he didn't say that he was fighting wars as Uriel since the solar system was an expanding ball of gases.

How could Uriel only be 2,000 years old, and remember everything that happened before as if he were there?  It would be as if an Aeon existed that entire time, but wasn't shaped until after Christianity gave him shape.

A way to look at this problem may be that a mantle carries the memories of the previous hosts, and that different pantheons are interpretations of a finite number of mantles.  So Uriel may not have existed prior to the start of Judaism, but the mantle has existed prior to that, and so he remembers farther back than that through the mantle.

Meh, I'm sorry, but I'm not interested in that discussion at all.

I'm sure that those that care have a sufficiently strong counter argument for that in their arsenal, or find that to not be sufficiently strong enough to sway them. 

I'd rather just let the point lie.  It's a good point (both yours and his), that has been debated vigorously for millennia.  I don't see it getting resolved in this topic...

Fair enough.  And it also looks like Jim deals with it by the "lay of the land" metaphor that Uriel uses in The Warrior anyways.

Meant that the events surrounding The White Christ involved a major rearranging of power.  If this happened without Free Will as a fulcrum, then I'd say that the theory collapses. 

Wasn't the Sacrifice foretold in the Old Testament? If so, then that may collapse your theory, since Determination negates Free Will.

This may have already been listed. but a theme song for THomas:

Fair enough.  I was only thinking in terms of one specified area of discussion, not the consequences of what such segregation would bring about.  I just get a bit annoyed when there are multiple threads on the same topic when one works just as well.  The only thing I could think for fairness is merging threads that have the same topic, or locking new threads with a link to the more established open thread.

Hopefully this makes a bit more sense.

I was thinking to do so it's not 5 different topics on the same thing on the boards, rather than 5 or 6 different threads.

third vote for "aye"

I am kinda hoping with the aetherilists that there is a Tesla reference.  He's one of the scary "high functioning" ones.  He's perfectly fine, until you mention pigeons. ;D
