    Read your Bible: God is a jealous, bigoted, genocidal, warmongering maniac.

    Time to give this other guy a chance.  :evil:

    Can’t argue with ya about the “old testament” God, Flash, but I have some things to add.

    God died for you in order to save you from His righteous judgment (He is merciful)
    Every good and perfect gift comes from Him - He is the one and only creator

    The “other guy” only loves to steal, kill, deceive, and destroy
    He is the #1 terrorist and works through millions of fallen angels to do all evil work.  God allows this for a time, which would seem to make Him a willing bystander, I understand. 
    But I’d rather not be one to be so proud as to say that I know better than my Creator, or judge His actions.

    Ignore or laugh at the one creator God at your own peril.  I think it’s wiser to seek after Him with your whole heart.
    There will be a final battle between good and evil, and the outcome is 100% not in doubt.

    Wait, so we owe him a debt for doing a favor to save us from…him?

    Sorry, he sounds like an asshole.

    When you’re God, you get to make the rules  🙂

    Yes and I’ll bet he drives in the asshole lane in his Porsche. 😄

    God plays games.  Sounds like every fickle girl I’ve been involved with.

    At least I got laid with the latter, though.  :evil:

    This is why religion should be avoided as a topic here……

    Is it good to kill innocent babies?

    Obviously no, evil in fact wouldn’t you agree?

    So…

    The great flood…

    Pretty sure there were innocent babies killed there.

    And god created the flood…which he would know would kill innocent babies as god is omnipotent and knows about your sins before they occur.

    So god killed innocent babies, therefore god is evil.

    Lock this thread down because I am sure a firestorm is a brewing.

    Hell is about to freeze over because I think this is the first time I gave an up arrow to IL to counter the down arrows on his comments.  Jesus what is the world coming to when I support IL.  Well I guess that shows that even a broken clock is right twice per day.

    If it needs an down arrow on IL comments for you to support IL,then I will be on this crusade so you can support IL more often  :-D.
    Who knows ,maybe you get back friends again huh??!
    I would love to see that, God is good!

    If Oklahoma allows a public display of the 10 commandments (publicly funded no less), then they really have to allow other religious persuasions to put up their stuff too.  If you don’t want Satanists, Muslims, Jews, etc to have their say, then the Christians should keep their God to themselves too.


  • Official Q&A 2007 AAR League

    That is one of the most awesome things I’ve ever heard. This could eventually be a reason to go to Oklahoma.

    I doubt it goes though. The OK ACLU will win their lawsuit and they’ll remove The Ten Commandments and no monuments of this sort will be allowed. Judicial precedent on this sort of thing is pretty robust.

    Yahweh isn’t the one and only God.

    Check the original text. He did not say “There is no other God but me”, he said “You shall worship no other God but me, for I am a jealous God.” VERY different.

    Moreover, the 10 Commandments were made as part of a pact between Yahweh and the Jews exclusively; non-Jews have no business worshiping this deity.

    What was the first thing they did in service to this God? They stoned a man to death for collecting firewood on the Sabbath.

    Somewhat later, they were instructed to invade the land of Canaan and put the entire population to the sword - men, women and children*. Were not the Cananites also the creation of this God?

    So God creates humanity, then at some point chooses one tribe as a chosen people and tells them to exterminate some other tribe and steal their land.

    Jesus was not God, he was not even the son of God - that was a title born by all Kings of the Jews as a spiritual title. What he claimed to be was rightful King of the Jews, a claim derived through his father Joseph as set out in the very first part of the New Testament. He was not interested in the affairs of non-Jews - they had their own Gods.

    He did not die on the cross. It took people days to die from Crucifiction; Jesus was only on the cross for a few hours, then he took hysop to induce coma, something proved by the fact that when pierced he bled profusely (hence heart still beating). That is why he was crucified on the eve of the Sabbath - so that he would be taken down before death. It was all arranged in order to fulfill a prophesy.

    He was not born in a stable in Bethlehem as part of a census; there was no such census. Nor did Nazareth exist in the first century.

    He was not a carpenter (another mis-translation) but was from a high-born family that would never have turned to trade.

    • Apart from virgin women who God permitted them to keep alive as sex slaves.

    All this assumes Jesus is a historical personage, by no means a certainty.

    What is your reason for sharing your beliefs and/or findings?

    Not true.  They are the most persecuted majority in this country!  They get to make the rules, because they are God’s rules, and don’t you forget it.

    Which is nonsense when Azathoth comes to devour us all anyway.

    yes we need the Flying Spaghetti Monster made into a statue. Make it as large as the Kraken.



  • I always raise an eyebrow at people who present their religious beliefs as fact like it was some kind of scientific discovery. The only fact that exists about God is that nobody truly knows, and anyone who claims their beliefs of God to be fact is nothing but pretentious righteousness. No one can see electricity, but we know it exists due to scientific research and experiments using a system built to identify natural phenomenon as fact. Thats why we don’t shut our doors on battery thumping electricians spreading the good word of responsible wire maintenance.



  • You can see electricity……



  • @Gliven:

    You can see electricity……

    I suppose… my point is that wether something can be seen or not, it has to be proven before it becomes fact.

    Except we’re expected to patronise religious folk because they have faith in things that aren’t real.

    That makes them good people; they must be really devoted to believe in something that doesn’t exist.

    I’ve got no problem with people who have faith, I believe in a creator myself… but I don’t go around telling people that my beliefs are right and theirs are wrong (which has become an epidemic among religious types these days).

    You patronise Santa Claus every christmas even though you KNOW he’s not real.

    That said… if anyone takes a moment to read the “science” on praying.  They will note that it does tend to increase positive outcomes!

    Atheists, too…

    The thing with that is for most believers simply telling them you’re atheist is saying their beliefs are wrong. No other comments are required. An argument is inferred when only a simple statement of non-belief was intended.

    I recently came out of the closet as an atheist when I realized that I was claiming agnosticism primarily to ease and shorten the road to agreeing to disagree. It wasn’t what I believed but what I thought would avoid an argument that I wasn’t interested in having. That belief turned out to have been well founded.
