More agnostic. If there is a god it is not the christian version.
There is no Hell, and threats do not work on me. How can you claim to love a god that holds threats over your head? Did you know that the concept of Hell did not come about until the 3rd century AD? It was made up to keep the masses under control.

If christians love the bible so much why do they pick and choose from it?
Some chapters are just better reading in a lot of books, or a lot of chapters are just better reading in some books?

I am not atheist but i do not believe in the "god" of the bible either(notice i did not capitalize it). I believe in Mother Earth and the Lord and Lady of the Sun and Moon. In other words I believe in many gods and goddess. The problem you have is you have your blinders on and can not see that christianity is not all that is out there. The oldest religion is the one i practice I am a witch born and true. My ways were born well before you bible was concieved and it blows my mind how it is billed as the old faith. all it has is stolen pieces of the old faith. Blessed be and may mother earth share her wisdom with you.

It is nice to see people of non-Christian faiths posting.

However, how do you know yours is the "oldest religion"? Modern paganism is disconnected from anything the ancient peoples practiced by hundreds of years. Also, we simply have no way of knowing for sure what types of religions might have been practiced by people one or two hundred thousand years ago.

From my reading, animism (the belief that everything is "animated" by spirits) seems to be the oldest.
Primitive peoples tried to identify with the prey by wearing hides and skins or antlers and performing rituals, perhaps to understand the animal in order to better hunt them.

New conspiracy theories 2013 are ramping up.

A former FBI agent and current anti-Islam activist believes that John Brennan, President Obama’s pick to head the CIA, is secretly a Muslim and therefore “unfit for duty” in the government.

There are writings found that are thousands of years older than the fabled times of jesus but not one single writing until a ruler started using religion to control the masses

You need to read it again, as the whole Bible OT Points towards Christ!

How ironic is it when ignorami think teachers are the bad guys?
Ignorami = plural of ignoramus. As in both hula AND you.
Down with unions? Maybe you should take a good long look at the history of the coal industry and who CONTINUES to protect miners' conditions and health. Down with Teacher's unions? Have you ever compared how a teacher's pension stacks up against politicians' or most administrators' retirement plans?
Hula hates the NEA, but you can bet your bottom dollar hula doesn't even know what the NEA actually does... and I KNOW you don't.

It is no secret that American schools are dysfunctional. The report compared New Jersey students to Belgium schools and you contend that indoctrinating children to Christianity would correct this - and yet the countries that are kicking education butt?

the OT doesnt say anything about christ. it talks about the savior comni back but it says nothing of christ any where. when the savior comes the world is supposed to end so by the OT your christ would be a false prophet. and by the NT your christ would be a false prophet too becuz the system didnt pass b4 the ppl at the sermon all passed away. beware of worshippin false prophets. they will send u to hell for that too u know.

The Bath School disaster is the historical name of the violent attacks perpetrated by Andrew Kehoe on May 18, 1927 in Bath Township, Michigan that killed 38 elementary school children and 6 adults, and injured at least 58 other people. Kehoe first killed his wife, fire-bombed his farm and set off a major explosion in the Bath Consolidated School, before committing suicide by detonating a final explosion in his truck. It is the deadliest mass murder in a school in United States history.
