Do you have any quotes from hitler the christian where he claims not to be a religie? No? Just your opinion? Anyway as I said hitler was delusional just like the rest of you religies, I am sure you disagree.

And hitler did kill other believers, they were not real christians, they did not have true understanding of the mind and intentions of his deity like he did, of course hitler is in a better place now, just like the rest of you religies will be, some day.

Secularism has nothing to contribute to morality, teach your children religion if you want them to be good.
Christians have no morals. If you do not do something from fear of punishment you are obedient, not moral.
I do not do bad things because I do not want to, therefore I have good morals

So the older the religion the better? Good, because the worship of Pan predates your god by thousands of years

Ask yourself these questions:

• Was there some part of me that was trying to control what the other person thought of me? Was I behaving in a caring way to get attention, approval, validation, love, time, or sex?

• Was there a part of me hoping that my caring would result in monetary gain? Was I acting caring in the hopes of getting the other person to trust me enough to participate in some way that would bring me more money?

None of us like to think of ourselves as manipulative, yet we all have a part of us that wants control over getting what we want, and we may have learned to use our caring as one form of control.

While caring as a form of control may seem to work at times, it will never bring you joy. You might receive approval or sex or money, but something will always seem to be missing from your life. Getting what you believe you want may feel good for the moment, but it will never bring you the deep joy that results when caring from the heart with no agenda or attachment to outcomes.

When we are caring from the heart, we become, as Mother Teresa said, "God's pencil." We are giving to others just for the sake of expressing what is most beautiful about life - caring about each other. Giving to others from an open heart fills the soul with joy.

I guess that it must be the christian cult that fuels the multibillion dollar porn industry, and the multi billion dollar alcohol industry, and the multi billion dollar strip club industry, and Victoria's secret, and science fiction books, and the multibillion dollar medical industry, wow, you must be right
Wow so no christian has ever spent his money on these things? Is that what you are saying? Boy you not to bright there, better get you god to light you a candle to illuminate you intelligence. These industries are making so much because people from all religious groups enjoy them. And what may i ask is the problem with victoria secret? It is nice underwear. Damn does your god forbid those too? Damn he is a hateful god isn't he?! Glad I have Isis to protect me from such a god. And now explain what is wrong with Science Fiction books? After all you worship from a science fiction book about that Mythical god and Jesus. By the way, you know Jesus was a Witch, right? Lol all the elder witches have said it. Your prescious savior was a Witch. Blessed be Small minded person

im glad u brought up mother teresa. look up her diary that was found after her death and notice how she herself didnt really believe in god but she knew if she left the church she would die becuz they had so much invested with her as being that iconic figure. she was just a slave to the catholic church and she didnt really believe long b4 she passed away.

<quoted text>
I'm glad you brought up inertia:
1. Physics The tendency of a body to resist acceleration; the tendency of a body at rest to remain at rest or of a body in straight line motion to stay in motion in a straight line unless acted on by an outside force.
The very fact that things at rest will stay at rest unless acted upon by an outside force and or things in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by an outside force. Since the universe i full of objects on the move my question to you since you are a scientific genus can you explain how all of those got in motion? What was the outside force? Oh a brillant light just went off...maybe just maybe the outside force was the creator of the universe....God himself. True science agrees with the Bible. See Genesis 1:1,2
1&#8194;In [the] beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
2 Now the earth proved to be formless and waste and there was darkness upon the surface of [the] watery deep; and God’s active force was moving to and fro over the surface of the waters.
Ah ha the outside force was God's active force.
I know that you have taken some time to google inertia and place words in a particular order that you think make some kind of intelligent point deserving of a response, but the fact is, your argument does not logically exist.

If you placed your argument in the form of a syllogism it would look like this:
.
.
Premise A: Things in motion must be put into motion by another force.
.
.
Premise B: The law of inertia cannot explain how the first force started
.
.
Conclusion: God exists
.
.
CLEARLY you are lacking premises C, D, E, F, G, H,.........etc. to make such a conclusion. Which makes this a slippery slope fallacy and an invalid argument.
.
.
Your argument literally does not logically exist, and therefore requires no rebuttal other than to point out exactly why it is an invalid argument.
.
.
Protip: The laws of inertia are not know to have existed prior to the big bang, anything using this premise will fail.

if u actually study the bible u will see that the murder is a pretty common thing in gods eyes. he actually seems to like it a little to much. the more religious u are the more likely u will dly your self in to a tower in an airplane. think on that and u might notice its the religious that are startin every war to begin with. and dont just say thats muslims and not christians unless u can defend the past of your own religions torturing and murdering ways to gaint he followin that it has today. christianity is the same as islam if it is practiced how it is supposed to be practiced.

Yeah I guess you're right, if you're to ignorant to understand what you read, or read the wrong one.
All the more reason to study the bible, if you would have done so, maybe you would understand.

We don't have moral values like sacrificing your children to a god or killing people of a different faith.

There's no modern Christian movement that has "moral values like sacrificing your children to a god or killing people of a different faith", radical secularists don't understand Christianity.

I noticed you use the term "modern" but before you referred to morals learned over thousands of years. Well in your buybull, your holy book, god made a man sacrifice his own daughter to appease his vanity. In your precious books, the foundation of your moral value system, a prophet kills people for worshiping the God Baal.
