I googled. Wikipedia has this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christwire

"Christwire is a satirical website that publishes blog-style articles that highlight excesses of American Christian conservatives along with obscure weather reportage, inaccurate and unfactual warnings about such things as politicians and video games, new vernacular, intense focus on various communities, and numerous parenting and lifestyle tips."

How do you tell a dog that the damn boat is broke and we cant go for a boatride?
If you give that dog a steak he'll forget about the boat.

<quoted text>No, but it's not proof they did exist, either.
"The Winds of War" is historical fiction, not a history book.
"Anne of a Thousand Days" is not a history book. They both deal with real people and real events, and contain fictional characters interacting with real people, but that does not make the fictional characters real people.
I have no problem with others' faith, but I'm not going to say I think that those people are real when I have never seen any evidence of their existence.
Besides, isn't that why they call it faith? Have faith, but don't expect me to say that yes, they existed. Just have faith.
I don't expect you to say they existed. I took exception with you saying they didn't exist, because you don't know that this was actually the case.

Maybe a better way to have said it would have been I don't believe they exist. They way you said it made it sound like it was a factual assertion.

Fine, I don't believe it. AFAIC it's a pile used to manipulate weak minded fools.

Take care of yourself, Moon. You will be missed.

Christwire is satirical. It's amusing if you don't take it seriously. It's actually a good follow on Facebook.

Glad you're so strong-minded to be immoral, Godless, and filled with hatred for those who don't share your views.

Yes, because you're so compasionate and act in such a Christian manner. What a joke. If Jesus was walking down the sidewalk and saw you coming his direction, he'd cross the street.

I didn't get hatred from Moon's post at all and just b/c someone has different beliefs does not make them immmoral.

Cool. I was thinking it was like the Onion, but I'd never encountered it before. Thanks.:)

The Jesus, Mary, Joseph thing... I don't want to get involved, but we need to remember that with history, aside from written records and some physical evidence, we either accept or not. Period.

Unless one was there, in person, we really have no idea if so and so existed or if such and such happened. We accept evidence as likely and therefore say it/he/she/they did exist/happen because it's likely.

But really, if I can't see it with my own eyes, there's no way to say with 100% accuracy that it (whatever) was real. Anyway...

I *think* Josephus' accounts of historical people and events have been called into question, but don't quote me on that. Not really my area of expertise.

Hey! It is possible to be good without God.

Moon can fight her own battles but I just felt the need to get that out.

This conversation is making me sad. I know that I wasn't personally being attacked, and Moon has been nothing but kind to and supportive of me through my personal crises of late, but still... It hurts to be called a "manipulated weak minded fool" even indirectly.

To edogg, godless = immoral

Ever see that tv series 30 Days? Each episode had a person spend 30 days immersing themselves in a particular lifestyle with which they are unfamiliar. One episode had an atheist go live with a devout christian family.

The things that stood ut to me most:

The atheist saw her church and the amount of people, and her first thought was about how much money must be going into the collection plate.

The christian family openly had zero comprehension of how she could teach her kids right from wrong without the bible or some other recorded doctrine. It was difficult for them to comprehend that there was no athiest manifesto of sorts.

jmw, you rely on God to get you through tough times. That makes you weak-minded.

I rely on booze. That makes me a drunk.

And I hope you took that in the joking spirit in which it was intended! You know Mindy? She loves Jesus like there's no tomorrow and to me, she's like you, an idea Christian -- keeps it personal (not necessarily to yourself--there's a difference) and doesn't care what other people do/believe.
