Well Listen Close... There Should Be No Subsides for Any Industry, If a Industry cannot succeed within the Free Market it should Fail and vanish from the landscape... That's Far different from Tax Breaks or even Tax Exemptions for specific industries that provide products and services the nation finds deserving of such tax breaks... But giving a Company a Tax Break is Not Corporate Welfare... That's a false argument... Telling a company that because we need their product so we will not tax them for any profits it far different from sending them billions... Yes we should have Never Bailed out Wall Street, GM, Chrysler or any other Private Company at Any time... And the Federal Government should Never have Ownership positions in Private Companies... Those are the Basis of Fascism and a toe in the door to totalitarian control...
I agree with this. I am still trying to understand why we tax payers had to give banks hundreds of billions of dollars so they would not go out of business.......

Yes, I'm the religious nut because you're quoting the Bible. Brilliant logic.

You could be a good politician, because you can twist words. lol! But no. What's in the Bible is culture - whether you think there are customs that should or shouldn't be done is up to you - but it's culture. That's how times were back than, not an excuse, but fact. The government, made up of bad people (libido dominandi), ALLOWS evil to continue - like the evil perpetuated by religious people in the name of a god. With no government, no religious faction could be able to do harm on a grand scale.
Atheists don't have to believe in God to kill people. And why does it matter if you believe in God or not? If you plan to kill, you'll justify any way possible, if not Christianity, then in the name of atheism or some other arbitrary engine.
You are itching to pass the blame. Individualism. We as individuals make decisions. If you can't blame the individual, then you shouldn't complain about violence. We make our own decisions, not a deity.
When individuals work as a group, E.G. the Westburro baptist church, it is the collective whole that the responsibility for the actions are placed upon. Same for a larger group of people who say they are "good" and condemn every one who does not follow their beliefs.
Yes, there are some good people who TRY to follow the teachings of their Christ, they are few and far between. The majority of "christians" are a social club (cult) that want to elevate themselves and defame others. They pass judgment on every one else and try to force their desires on to every one.
The bible is a fictional book, but christians claim that it is "the word of god" so by their claim it is the god they worship that has demanded animal blood ritual sacrifice (dont we condemn the Aztecs for that?) and placed the price of a virgin (as well as demanding the death of girls who get raped) etc...
Each and every evil act in the bible was written to justify the Jewish peoples actions. But this is what todays christians claim to worship.
In reality christians do not even read their bible and make stuff up or change it around.(how do you change god telling you to rejoice as you bash babies against rocks?) They worship social status and wealth not some imaginary god.
Most of todays christians use church to justify their hate and perversions just like the Jewish people did when they made up the bible

I'm an agnostic. Though I lean more towards agnostic theist, I believe the truth is unknown. It's beyond understanding to begin with. But whatever you believe in, a god or not, it requires faith to believe such. We have yet, if ever, to prove or disprove the existence of a supreme being.
I've read very little in the way of books, but I read a lot of history. And history definitely shows that people do not know the truth. lol!
We have not proved nor disproved the existence of a "supreme being" however we have proved that it is not the "god" of the bible.
We proved that the earth is not a plane with heaven above and Hell below. We proved that the sun does not orbit the earth. We have proven that illness is not "unclean" spirits, and it is funny how the Hubble telescope and Voyager 1 have not taken one picture of heaven or an angel.
My being alive is proof that prayer does nothing because of all of the christians praying that I die.

Thanks for the reply, I for a long time was agnostic and now the needle for me has move to atheist. So you have a not enough faith to perform miracles....yet, I know I cannot perform miracles.
Your comments are interesting, welcome to the forum.
You left out the part about growing up as a Christian then losing your faith in the hardships of teenage angst.
Feeling your god had abandoned you, you began to question and your bitterness slowly pulled you by a leash through the back alley of doubt until you finally, defiantly raised your fist in the air and said through tears, "Well god if you ain't gonna be my genie, I ain't gonna serve you no more."
*sniffle, sniffle*
A failed Christian. A heathen.

Now, you find yourself on topix: the hillbilly MENSA forum, thinking you're executing your revenge on the "god who ignored you" and all his followers. That'll show him! LOL

Too bad you're still undecided about how you really feel.... "was" agnostic, now the "needle" is fluctuating again. Maybe one day, you'll find the mental fortitude to call yourself an Atheist. Until then continue to nurse your doubts.

Former religious NUTS....*sigh*

The way you keep exploding in anger and quoting the Christian Bible on here (way to represent your religion by the way), you're liable to push somebody right into the sanctuary.

If you want to believe that, fine. But Westboro Church does not represent all Christians. In fact, not all Jews are the same, not all Catholics are the same, not all Muslims are the same, etc. Religions are unlike small groups in that the motives are different. I know atheists that are just as zealous as Christians, does that mean ALL atheists are zealots??? No. lol!

Much of the Bible is historic fact. Many of those wars did happen, many of those kingdoms did exist, many of the people, like Samuel who told the people God's warning of having a government, did exist, etc. What is fictitious is the supernatural stories - but by claiming the whole Bible is a lie is to look very ignorant.

"Most of todays christians use church to justify their hate and perversions just like the Jewish people did when they made up the bible." So INDIVIDUALS are to blame for their actions?! lol!

Since you refuse to look up the word "customs", given you keep mentioning them out of context. I will reply to you no further. Thank you for the disucssion.

Show them you're in charge, Chester!

So it was the "custom" of the Jewish people to sacrifice animals and babies to the god that the christians worship?

You said long ago because of your "priest" status, you don't pay taxes, so you don't have the right to bitch.

Obviously, you lied again, Chester.

Prove "their" is a dictionary in your house.

It's spelled "There," MENSA man.

Who said I believed in a god? I'm openly ridiculing you hypocritical religious NUTS and you ask me to prove THERE is a god?
You ride the short bus to school, don't, you, Spacely?

Newsflash: if YOU'RE an Agnostic, YOU are not 100% sure there is or isn't a god. YOU have uncertainty.

Atheists; however have no doubts about what they believe.
I have NO doubts.
How did that taste? Bitter, I'm guessing.

"Was" is the key word in your silly fallacy.

A least the Jews finally stopped the practice. Animal sacrifice is not a part of Judaism today.

Some forms of satanism; however, still practice barbaric animal sacrifice today. Explain why you satanic NUTS do it and you'll have answered your own question. Is it custom, religious instruction, or just a fun hobby?

This is why we need to end the 50 years of giving money to Haiti, and other countries.
The "safety net" has been abused and needs reform, some times people need help. Years of unemployment? Blow me! Six months and thats all. But the elderly whom have paid in to the system, paid taxes, built the roads we drive on and the public buildings we use deserve their benefits.(they paid for them)
Welfare? two years tops. Have 4 kids? Give them up to a family member who can afford them we only help with the first two. Can not work because you have kids? Then work at a daycare so single mothers can work.
But I am a socialist when it comes to education and NEEDED health care (got the sniffles? Get over it!)
As a "civilized society" we do have to pay a price. Taxes pay for military protection, police protection, fire dept. roads schools and so much more

But what about the people who work at grocery stores and gas stations?(or chinamart) They work, and some one has to do their jobs. The business will not pay them enough to live on (chinamart is the worst offender)
Do they get assistance for years? If they "get a better job" who will fix your burger at Wendy's or cash you out at Kroger's?
How will our troll live off of his pay from Taco Bell?

Count me in... Set a policy that we do not become global benefactors.. Beyond that pull all aid, support, troops from any country that does not either want us there or does not abide by Our Rules...
