Why were rocks first seen as something to rely upon?

Psalm 28:1 Unto thee will I cry, O LORD my rock; be not silent to me: lest, if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.

Psalm 18:2 The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

Deut 32:4 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.

Deut 32:15 But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.

Deut 32:31 For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges.

1 Samuel 2:2 There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.

2 Samuel 22:2 And he said, The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;

2 Samuel 22:3 The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence.

2 Samuel 22:32 For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God?

2 Samuel 22:47 The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation.

2 Samuel 23:3 The God of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spake to me, He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God.

Psalm 18:2 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

It's like a foundation.

Its from the parable of the wise man and foolish man, where the wise man builds his house house on a rock, or a strong foundation, while the foolish man builds his house on sand, or foundation.

You're still here? I thought you'd been driven off of the site by now.

Is it worth pointing out that pretty much every serious biblical scholar (or basically anyone who can even read the Bible in Hebrew) understands how metaphorical and obscure the passages are? All you did was take some two-thousand year old text that's been through multiple translations and find a bunch of references to things that don't add up. I mean, the text you quote even refers to God as the 'horn of salvation' and 'high tower' while you demand that every allegorical instance of "ROCK" be help up as proof of volcano worship.

The volcano theory has been long dismissed by any serious biblical scholars- and by the way, I think it's a bit hypocritical to call religious believers fanatics when you can't bring yourself to accept even another skeptical theory over your volcano idea.

Why would a rock be seen as something solid? We all know they're as flimsy as gauze.

What? I didn't realize that ancient Hebrew had separate words for "rock" and "stone." Lol. Again, English is a very unrelated language to Hebrew, but you insist on translating it the way English people do.

Mouthwash is just peeved because I put his nose out of joint in a five round debate on the subject of Yahweh being a volcano god. He only submitted one round and chose to miss the others so his abysmal effort did not appear on the debates section. What a coward? He's had it in for me ever since and my theory makes his blood curdle because it is a constant reminder of his inability to beat a woman in a debate. He has a lot of growing up to do. He is the stupid one.

I stand corrected. However, the foundation part is the meaning of it.

I expect incredible immaturity from TheFogHorn (I suspect she's not even a teenager). Congratulations, royal, you're finally on her level. Debate me on this or whatever pathetic excuse/insult/argument you might have is meaningless.

Do I need to point out how often ancient writers used parables and sayings to get the point across, and how translating it into another language completely ruins the effect and makes idiots like royal and someone who's not old enough to be on this site think they've found references to a volcano?

Prove that the Jews (other than Jesus) wrote in parables.

Its from the parable of the wise man and foolish man, where the wise man builds his house house on a rock, or a strong foundation, while the foolish man builds his house on sand, or foundation.

What? That parable is in the new testament and all these verses are Old testament.

I stand corrected. However, the foundation part is the meaning of it.

Yep. Probably.

Do I need to point out how often ancient writers used parables and sayings to get the point across, and how translating it into another language completely ruins the effect and makes idiots like royal and someone who's not old enough to be on this site think they've found references to a volcano?

Prove that the Jews (other than Jesus) wrote in parables.

Debate me and I will. Send it right now.

I don't know anything about the subject, and you've already been crushed. Face it. Yaweh is a volcano god.

Yeah, MW has issues with basically every woman being more intelligent than he is. I'm going to read through your ideas.

As suspected.

This is Arsewash's argument against my theory, as stated in his one and only posted round in our debate....

'The Judeo-Christian God is an omnipotent, formless one. [http://en.wikipedia.org......] If they worshipped Mount Sinai as a God, it would be a volcano God. The resolution is negated.'

And that was it! Nothing else! What a joke!

I'm arging that the ancient Hebrews worshipped volcanoes and he goes and talks about Christianity. Ha ha ha!

Then he makes the fatal mistake of saying....'if they worshipped Mount Sinai as a God, it would be a volcano God.'

Talk about putting your mouthwash in it! What a corker! He was meant to be con and not pro!

Of COURSE they worshipped Mount Sinai as a god.

What do these verses suggest was happening at Mount Sinai, the 'mountain of fire'?

I have a lot of faith in you being able and, most importantly and rarely, WILLING to see the truth in this theory. You have already shown more maturity than that daft clot, who is in fact about a third my age. Makes him seem very very small to me saying that ;)

You guys remind me of that one youth pastor I had at a camp who believed God was a mountain God who lived on top of mountains with his kingdom on top.

Yahweh was not a mountain god but a mountain of fire god with his congregation camped around him.

If I'm a third your age then I feel nothing but pity for you. I abandoned your little debate after it turns out it wasn't a noobsnipe, then I rechallenged you, but you avoided me at all costs. I've refuted you separately on the forums, so I'm not sure why you continue to bring it up. Must be female angst.

Lol, you have days to do research. If you won't debate me, never speak to me about volcano Gods again. Because I'll be reminding you.
