She doesn't realize she is worshipping the wrong god.

I know that her god was nailed to something....and that YOU have a hammer.
Proof positive that YOU are the BEST deity!

Religion seems to morph to appease the followers, JW's were told that they would be not marrying or having sex after Armageddon, now to please the followers watchtower said new light from God and now they can hump for the next thousand years after Armageddon.
It is a paradox in religion they teach you will be like angels with no gender then change as time goes by when expectations of the end of time has not come as once believed. I think you can find in historical data that it has been so with most religious beliefs.
You're kinda hung up on bio-illogical functions of extreme religious doctrines, aren't you.

They make stuff fer people like y-ewe.

<quoted text>Yes, I agree. Reality is simple. It simply IS right in front of your face.
There is no need for imaginary superbeings.

You are saying, "Don't look for answers, don't question, don't wonder ..Just Believe!"
You are asked simple questions but you can't defend your beliefs.

It's not complicated. I can put it all in one sentence:
IF Yahweh KNEW how people were going to NOT believe in them, why does a supposedly "loving god" allow them to be born so they will be punished eternally?
These are your claims about your deity. You know they make no sense.

Worshipping an unseen deity IS Religion. Face it.
Seeing things you didn't understand doesn't mean the myths of a bunch of primitive goatherders are true.
Blah blah blah. I'm convinced. I'm sorry u r not. I've given proof. I don't find it necessary to repeat repeat repeat

We are all sons and daughters of God. I don't even see the word Nephilim in the KJV.
Try a Gutenburg or a new world translation. King james wasn't even a christian, and many things were altered for his political purposes and by lack of knowledge. 30,000 errors have been found in it. It is a very new translation with information dating back to only about 1277. Scrolls exist today dating back to about 4 AD.

This sounds to me like a world in which no God exists. How is this picture of reality different from the reality of an atheist?
Also, why does God get the glory for creating everything but he gets off the hook for bad things that happen?
Let's move away from the realm of free will. Let's not use rape as an example. Instead, let's use a tsunami.
In the 2004 Thailand tsunami over 227,000 people were killed. That number certainly included all kinds of people from infancy to old age. Here's a snippet from the Wiki article on the subject:
“Relief agencies report that one-third of the dead appear to be children. This is a result of the high proportion of children in the populations of many of the affected regions and because children were the least able to resist being overcome by the surging waters.”
If you think about the horror of tens of thousands of children being washed away it is impossible to then imagine a loving, omnipotent god. I mean, sure, you can imagine some kind of deity watching his handiwork unfold, but not the kind of deity any decent human being should be paying homage to.
Anyway, this is an impossible question to answer. I realize. I'm just pointing out the absurdidty of belief in a loving Christian deity in a world where we have murder, rape, and natural disasters on a daily basis. Instead, this is the exactly the kind of world you should expect to see if there was no god in it.
And that is why I don't have a belief in any gods.
That's why I like books, and a good geology one could certainly be considered a "sacred text", for referencing the subject matter of your post (namely tsunamis), but of course LOGIC and rationality, knows BETTER, and would apply the appropritate catagory of what it IS (earth sciences) NOT what one would merely choose it to be.

That was the sound of irony passing by you.
The whole "resurrection" story is just a metaphor for Spring.
So.....Happy Spring!
By the way, you do know how the date for "easter" is reckoned, right?
The whole resurrection story is wearying to watch/read.
The inhumanity, cruelty, insecurity, intolerance and hatred of people, towards those who believed DIFFERENTLY, appalling.

You're confusing pagan rituals, with the barbaric practices practiced in the times of Christ.

There is no more evidence to believe so than there is for the Garden of Eden, the Noahic flood, the Tower of Babel, walking on water, loaves and fishes, talking animals, golden plates, Jonah's fish... yet those things are real? I dismiss them as highly, totally, extremely, thoroughly, profoundly improbable not because of a religious bias, but because THAT'S WHAT THEY ARE.
If you could be objective and display any self-honesty, you would concede that your argument for feelings = reality is fostered by testimony of religious authority, emotional investment, insecurities and fervent desires - the same things employed as tools of manipulation by Jim Jones, David Koresh and Marshall Applewhite.
Yeah and you should be ashamed of yourself for promoting stoopid and ignorance in stirring any pot of nothing but hatred (and manipulation and coniving)

Simply not comprehending ... is the EPITOMY of the definition of IGNORANCE.
SO is denying ignorance of a subject...that is abject ignorance OR a psycho-socioillogocal disorder. One or the other, and sometime both.
Basing decisions on emotion only, is also the epitomy of IRRATIONALITY and ILLogic, and it when that psycho-socio ILLOGICAL and IRRATIONAL stuff filters over and starts HARMING others in any shape, fashion or form, it goes beyond UNethical-to EVIL.
And anyone that would even try to promote such-is NUTS themselves.
Let's say for example-I just help myself to your bank account, and your house too. And oh hell, you just might as well cut rocks for me for the rest of your life and not see anyting out of it... TO hell with you and your family. And if you don't like it, too bad-I'll just doze you over and harm what ever gets in the way.
Would you like that? You think INSANITY like that example is rational?
I think it's EVIL.
That which only brings harm to others is NEVER right. EVER.
Well, all this because I contend that religion is based primarily on emotion and ignorance.
The scenario you are describing are the actions of ignorance of a Tea Party Malthusian.
Are you normally this vehement when you are confused? Apparently, your sensitivities over what you feel I said has bumped you into an irrational outburst. I'm sorry? In the old days they'd just grab a witch or heretic to hang and get it out of their system. Therapeutic, cathartic, righteous.

I think to some degrees, some "doctrines" have good and viable place.

The ones that give us ethics and right directions.

Wow. Reading this post did a lot of physical damage to my brain.
I won't re-tread. Other posters have already pointed out your phenomenal fallacy. But I just have to stand back in wondrous awe at your claim that "they found noah's ark".
You couldn't have said "they found Santa Claus" and made me laugh any harder.
Tsk

According to historical texts--Santa Claus WAS a real person too-just like that guy Jesus.

But you'd have to non-ignorantly read some cultural religious history to realize it.

Apology accepted.

But ahm serious about those luna-parasiTic socio-illogically sick hater types.

There's no reason for that chit whatsoever.

It's not anyone else's fault but their own that they have to reap the years of bad choices THEY made, while the rest of us were doing elsewise.

And don't make me break out the ant and the grasshopper books.

How do you construe that these statements SUPPORT "warped dark age, heraparasiTic hater zombies?"

I think that the Deuteronomic and Mosaic Laws - along with their predecessors and counterparts in other cultures - were indispensable in promoting civilization among the tribes of the "wilderness". I do not contend that any of them are the works and words of Gods. I think that a longing to fill an emotional hole is what drives religion and "dark age" ignorance. There is nothing wrong with perpetuating a code of ethics and moral laws as long as they are not adhered to simply for the sake of dogma, authoritarianism and tradition. That (and NOT the eternal life fairy tale) might well be the most important lesson of Jesus.
