Jeremiah 9:23-24 (New International Version)

23 This is what the LORD says:

“Let not the wise boast of their wisdom
or the strong boast of their strength
or the rich boast of their riches,
24 but let the one who boasts boast about this:
that they have the understanding to know me,
that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness,
justice and righteousness on earth,
for in these I delight,”
declares the LORD.

I hope nobody minds, but I would like to share the religious beliefs of the Yanomami:

Religious Beliefs. The Yanomamö believe that the cosmos consists of four parallel planes or layers. The upper-most layer is empty but was once occupied by ancient beings who descended to lower layers. The second layer, or sky, is the home of spirits of dead men and women, and it resembles the earth except that the hunting is better, the food tastier, and the spirits of people are young and beautiful. The third layer is the earth, and below the earth is the fourth layer, or underworld. In the underworld live the Amahi-teri, ancient spirits that bring harm to living humans. The Yanomamö have multiple souls that exist in a complex relation to one another. All shamans can use demons over which they have personal control to cure or cause illnesses. Catholic and evangelical Protestant missionaries have been in steady contact with the Yanomamö since the late 1950s but have had very little success in making converts.


Religions Practitioners. The shaman is called upon to divine the causes of illness or misfortune, cure the ill, and sicken the enemy by sending demons that he controls. Shamans are also expert at using wild and domesticated plants that are useful for casting spells. Only men can become shamans, and they must complete an arduous training period requiring food deprivation and abstinence from sex.


Ceremonies. Perhaps the most important and certainly the most dramatic ceremony is the reahu, or mortuary ceremony. It culminates when the bone ash of the deceased is mixed in a plantain puree and consumed by mourners in a demonstration of respect for the dead and in consolation to the close relatives of the deceased. This ceremony has considerable political implications if the deceased was a valiant warrior ( waiteri ) slain by enemies and when attended by members of allied villages.


Arts. Yanomamö graphic art is limited and simple. Sparse geometric designs, usually black or red, adorn common objects such as baskets, arrow points, and bodies. The verbal and vocal arts such as oratory, chanting, and myth telling are much esteemed and developed among the Yanomamö. Although these acts may have political and social significance (e.g., when village leaders, employing esoteric metaphors and archaic words, ritually exchange chants), performers are admired and gain status based on their talents.


Medicine. The Yanomamö believe most serious illness to be the handiwork of independently acting hekura or enemy shamans who have caused their hekura to sicken a body. A shaman must diagnose the cause and sometimes figuratively pull the demon out, often with the help of his own demons. To prepare, a shaman frequently decorates himself and his surroundings handsomely and invariably inhales a hallucinogenic snuff to aid contact with hekura. Illness may also be caused by the breach of a ritual regulation or taboo. The Yanomamö employ a variety of herbal remedies as cures.


Death and Afterlife. The Yanomamö attribute a large fraction of deaths to the actions of malevolent shamans who send demons to consume the souls of people. Upon death, there are instantaneous lamentations, singing, and chanting. Usually the corpse is very quickly burned by the men, while women and children absent themselves from the village lest they become polluted by the smoke. The men then collect and pulverize the bones and pour the ash into a set of gourds that are stored in the village. After about a year the Yanomamö stage an elaborate mortuary ceremony (reahu). Close relatives, covillagers, and sometimes allies consume the ash, which is mixed into a large trough of plantain soup. This endocannibalism demonstrates affection for the dead and solidarity with the deceased's relatives. It also helps insure that the soul of the dead will find its way to hedu, a Yanomamö paradise above the earth.

Are you still talking about last week when he had the "Christmas verse" on his armband, and you thought he was talking about himself instead of Jesus Christ? I definitely believe you are in the vast minority on that one (afterall it was Christmas, and even the most atheist would agree he was not referring to himself). However I am glad that you brought it up on here instead of just assuming your assumptions were correct. I hope that you will bring up any other self-interpretations that you may have with Tim's inspirational verses on this board. We do not judge and are happy to help you understand the context.

I didn't think he was talking about himself, just pointing out, like you, people assume. Sorry for the confusion, just pointing out a lot of people are to ignorant about him that they see the quote and run with it. But in the end my original comment really means **** because it is quite stupid for some one to think Tebow considers himself god.

Maybe Richard Dawkins should stick to memetics and stop mouthing off about things that make him look like a zealous liberal arts undergrad dropout.

And maybe you and those like you could keep those priests away from children, but I don't think thats going to happen either.

Keep your faith in zombie jesus, it's done so well in ridding the world of evil.

By the way, Tebow's verses are really good information for those of us who are familiar with the Bible. They give us a glimpse into whats going on in his mind. They also offer people encouragement for when they are put in similar situations.

Is Tim Tebow your hero now

Tim Tebow will be an outstanding hero and role model for many kids who love watching football.

Same people surprisingly weren't/aren't against Brian Dawkins, even though pretty much every time he opens his mouth the name "Jesus" is spoken.

At least this thread wasn't mislabeled, you knew exactly what it was when you opened it. If you did that and made a disparaging remark - Congrats you're a bigot! Have a nice day, and God bless! :)

PS. Isn't Harris Muslim? If you want to talk about that it would at least be relevant.

There was a time when religion was considered a private matter - between the devotee and his/her God.

If Harris is a practicing Muslim, he probably gets along with Tebow pretty well. Its easy to grab lunch or hang out with a guy who has similar religious values.

The most respectful people I work with are religious people of other faiths than my own. Muslims and Bhuddists primarily.

Even the "scary" ones who pray 5 times a day facing east. ;)

There was also a time when atheists were not militant evangelicals.

Those days are long gone.

If you dont want religion brought up in public, move to an oppressive communist nation. Christianity has been long forged in the fires of public intellectual debate. The idea of "natural rights endowed by a creator" is one that created the best system of government in the history of man, and was born in that fire of intellectual debate.

Jeremiah 9:23-24 (New International Version)

23 This is what the LORD says:

“Let not the wise boast of their wisdom
or the strong boast of their strength
or the rich boast of their riches,
24 but let the one who boasts boast about this:
that they have the understanding to know me,
that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness,
justice and righteousness on earth,
for in these I delight,”
declares the LORD.

How sad, you seem to have a learning/reading disability. Reading comprehension classes must have been tough! I'm sure with hard work and maybe some extra help you can get beyond that. When you do, be sure to come back and understand what I said, and how it differs from your statement. Thanks and God bless.

Talk about Tebow, his desire to be a good Christian, encourage others, help people and do Missionary work, or, talk about uplifting examples like DJ Williams, Travis Henry, Perrish Cox or Maurice Clarrett-wow, such a tough choice..................................


So many people focus on how to put and keep others down instead of finding the good in this World, and, it is easier to make yourself feel better while doing that than to see someone who is doing it for the good-no wonder Tebow has his haters-
