Wow dude. Your arrogance seems to have warped your sense of self realization. Your interaction with others, as you just described it, is hypocrisy, but you can't even see that.
Wow what? Do you really think you as so astute as to have a better realization of what I'm saying or doing than I do? Go ahead and tell me how this is hypocrisy. Show me where I call people stupid when they aren't saying stupid things.
You need to figure out what that word means. It doesn't mean "that person is doing something I don't like". My actions are consistent with my standards, so this is NOT hypocrisy.

Nevermind, I know I will never get through to you on that one, so continue to talk down to others and not call it degradation. We will all continue to read it and shake our heads. After all, everyone should come to accept your reality that everyone else on here is indeed inferior to you based on your own scale of intelligence that you measure everyone on.
If one will never get through to me on any topic, it's because what they're saying is bullsh!t. I am open to anything and everything that makes sense.

I don't measure based on some crazy metric. I look at the same things that any reasonable person would. And I don't make blanket statements about "everyone else here". Sure, I might make a declaration about some smaller group, but do you really think I'm wrong? Do you really doubt that I'm intellectually superior to anyone I felt like going out of my way to explain it to?

Can't control you?? That's just nutty. Seriously. Normal people don't refuse to go read something at a URL when somebody asks for their opinion because they are refusing to be controlled.

If you do not want your children to have the opportunity unfortunately that's your business. For the ones that would like thier children to be taught then that's our business.

Our creator has nothing to prove. He will not make you serve him. It is a choice. You can believe on him or you can deny him. The decision is yours. He is a god full of mercy, love, peace and forgiveness. There is No greater god. He's not a god that encourages hate and violence and hurt. Why would you not want to serve him? He will change your life for the good.

No dude. What everyone has tried telling you, it isn't welcomed and it isn't necessary. When you see someone in public that is off the charts ugly, I mean "gotta tie a steak around their neck to get the dogs to play with them ugly", you still shouldn't walk up to them and say "dang you are ugly!!!" If you did, it would certainly be lowering them and raising you, and it certainly does not help that person in the least.

Then use the right word. Call me rude. I don't care. I am very rude on here at times. That's not the same thing as degrading.

Regardless, your example is poor, as I don't use negative terms to describe things people can't help. If I'm insulting people who are actually incapable of bettering themselves, it is not intended.

BUT ANYWAY... now that we've gone down the "you're so mean" road for the 50th time, feel free to actually discuss the topic at hand.

If your "rude" displays are not intended to make people feel less than you and raise yourself up on some pedestal, then you seriously need to work on your communication skills, as that's how it comes off to others that don't live In your head. But anyway, like I said, whatever, if that floats your boat, have at it.

What topic do you want to discuss now? Miracles don't exist because you haven't witnessed one?

Absolutely, as well as many other "religious" texts.

It's a Constitutional American right to do so. It is NOT a Constitutional American right however, to terrorize anyone, based upon readings or beliefs from any of them.

Fully agree, but not what I was getting at. If you like reading the Bible, you would like the Book of Mormon.
The cool thing about reading it is that if you are a believer in Jesus Christ, it will bring you closer to Him. Whether you agree with the book or not, you will either be drawn closer to Him because it makes you think about your own beliefs (challenge the depths of your current beliefs), or drawn closer to Him because you learned more about Him. Either way, you win.

You know I'm a believer in God, therefore you know I believe that everything good comes from God.
I don't know all the reasons those individuals came to earth, but I do know two of them: to have their faith tested and to gain a physical body to become more like Him in our eternal progression. We also need the experiences that we encounter to help us mature and gain knowledge. We will need it in the next part of our existence...
As far as God, maybe He does know. I told you I don't understand the mind of God and don't pretend to. I just try to form opinions on His far superior intelligence, knowing I won't get there.
And you know I don't click links.
I still find this hard to believe. I mean, hard to believe that you believe it.

We have no evidence that there is an afterlife. All science indicates that when we die the game is over. I understand the fear of death leads many people to hope for something more. But what I don't understand is how people can not only hope, but actually *believe* that a particular thing is going to happen after death. I can understand people who admit agnosticism about it. They aren't really making any claims. But when you claim to KNOW what happens, very specifically in your case, I just can't fathom how you get there from here.

Did you meet someone who died and went to Heaven and then came back to talk to you about it? Did they have pictures?

Also, in that second part of your post, you hit upon the problem I talked about pages and pages ago. It is not just you, but many Christians and other religious people who make this error in thinking:

If you cannot understand the mind of God then by what criteria can you possibly understand the Bible? You are building your worldview on a house of cards, IMHO. And based on some of the things you've said on various posts I even get the feeling that you doubt it yourself. Though certainly I could be wrong about that.

Anyway, I find this idea of belief without evidence fascinating. My brain is "WTF?"
