Read it and tell me what you think. I can discuss any subject without getting hateful or nasty by saying things about you or anyone else who has an opinion.

Are you just anti-Christian? Is there any point in having a discussion with you?

OK, if some one really believes in (insert religion) than I do not have a problem with them. If they TRY to live by their beliefs.
I do have a problem with people who use church to elevate themselves above others and defame others as they are patting themselves on the back and telling themselves that they are better than others. I have a problem with people who try to force their way on to others and do not accept that every one has the same rights they do.(so many church people feel that they are the only ones with rights)
I try to open the eyes of some christians to make them see that what they are following is not the bible but a group of people who worship social status and wealth.
Yes, not every christian is like this, not every baptist rapes children, I know, but as long as they condemn and threaten me with out knowing anything about what I believe I will fight back
(by the way, we do not sacrifice animals, that was your religion and we do not harm the innocent, again your religion)

I agree everyone has the right to believe as they wish and I would be the last one to try to force my beliefs on anyone.

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.

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.

Are you Mormon? Do Mormons have ability to turn a wand into a snake? I and friend of mine that visited a Mormon to purchase a car, while in the Mormons house the Mormon demonstrated that magic for us, but only my friend was able to see it and not me. How come I could not see it?
