"YaA is not intentionally HURTING other people with his beliefs."
It is disturbing that he is WILLING to.
Perhaps Sis missed the post where Yaa said he would kill members of his family if the voice in his head told him to.
Fortunately for them, Yaa is "pretty sure" Yahweh wouldn't tell him to.
I'm just glad I'm not related to him.
His family should have him committed for his own good and their safety.
If you knew God, you'd know how silly you are... and safe
Everyone is with a True Christian!
In case you missed Christ's teachings...
(1) Love God
(2) Love your neighbor
(3) Love your enemies

Not much room for your agenda there!

Okay Example, Both Lot's daughter's had sex with him and bore children.(Incest)
Example, Cain killed his brother (murder)
Example, Peter denied knowing Jesus (lie)
Are these not written in the book you are reading?
Yes they are, but NOT in the context you stated!
NONE of this was directed, OR condoned by God!
Jesus knew Peter would deny Him...
Just as He knew... you would too!
Hope that changes for you!

<quoted text>What is your definition of porn? I do watch movies that have sexual scenes on NBC, CBS, ABC and A&E network
Do I lie...Yes I do
Do I steal .. No
now for the the next question... The really stupid one
A vagina is part of the female anatomy. Not sure what you mean by the "made for" The vagina has several functions and purposes, it is an orifice for giving birth, an orifice for a penis among other things, such as medical devices.
Were you trying to say that if I watch porn, lie or steal, That I am evil or vile? You are beyond stupid and need to be committed. Seek help before you hurt yourself or someone else.
The Penis was made before the medical devices...
"Were you trying to say that if I watch porn, lie or steal, That I am evil or vile?"
Yes!
None Good, no NOT one!
If you support porn, you support the evil that causes rapes, and cheating!

Nope, that was just opinion, and my freedom of personal reading preferences.

<quoted text>I would love to here how you equate what I do to terrorism?
I can totally understand it may insult you, but insults are not terrorism.
Actually, YES continually insulting, as well harassing,stalking etc etc--- others--- IS terrorising.

Verb 1. terrorize - coerce by violence or with threats
terror, to force, hale, pressure, squeeze - to cause to do through pressure or necessity, by physical, moral or intellectual means :"She forced him to take a job in the city"; "He squeezed her for information"

Which ALSO is similarly the same as (via thesaurus) to
"bullying"-
1. a quarrelsome, overbearing person who badgers and intimidates smaller or weaker people.
To treat in an overbearing or intimidating manner. See Synonyms at intimidate.
2. To make (one's way) aggressively.
v.intr.
1. To behave like a bully.
1. a quarrelsome, overbearing person who badgers and intimidates smaller or weaker people.
a. a pimp.
v.t.
4. to intimidate or terrorize.
v.i.
5. to be loudly arrogant and overbearing.
adj.

Is there some reason you terrorize others whose beliefs might differ from yours, but who are doing nothing wrong and mean you no harm??

I just want to underscore the irony and absurdity underlying this post. A person who doesn't even understand where to place commas and spaces is referring to scientists as "dumdums".
And doing it via strawman arguments.
I needed a chuckle this morning. Thanks.
Imagine some of the posters here (and I'm going to actually exlcude YaA from the scenario because he doesn't exhibit the bully, terrorist, know it all, condescending type vitriol that some others do), attending as guests, a consortium of physics professionals at CERN...the guests spewing their ignorance in the usual ill-manner.

Can you imagine some of the looks (at the very least) on some of the REAL professionals faces?

My atheism came from a life of observation and an inherent willingness to be critical of ideas. My parents took me to church maybe 20 times and maybe to a dozen different churches. I appreciate the fact that I saw all those different Christian sects and that I was never forced to engage in their practices. I think this helped me have no inhibitions about being critical of them.
I did used to have a latent belief in something, or fear of it. I was afraid to curse because I thought god might be listening. I remember saying "god damn" quietly once when I was about 11 or 12. Nothing bad happened.
I've been saying god damn ever since, god dammit.
I have to be realllllllllllllllllly po'd to use that one--mostly because it's untelling who anyone would be asking to dammit then.

Wait a minute. You have said countless times you KNOW that god is real and that you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, a man who died 2000 years ago. How is it that you have "no idea" why your god allows such suffering? If you know him so well, how are you so ignorant about this?
I want to know how you can have faith in an all powerful being that does not lift a finger to prevent the rape and murder of three little girls. Please explain that to me.
Remember,*all powerful*. Can do anything. Knows everything. Clearly you find the rape and murder of children to be an evil thing. Yet here it is happening, over and over again. And god knows about it and can stop it.
But he doesn't stop it.
Why?
I think some of you try and use that blame card as some sort of ace in the hole trump card.

Nope..that one doesn't work so good when anyone considers all the "free choice, free will" imperfection and NON immortality of people in general..

That's just poor game of life conceptual skills dude...might want to read some instructions lol.

Serial Apologists - yes. Bible thumpers whose assertions and fabrications are corrected time and again with evidence, references and sources, but continue to re-post the same false assertions again anyway.

I do eat foods that are made from grains - even on Saturdays before dusk. I won't apologize for it because Jesus told me it was okay.

Grain foods are good for people, even in twilight hours sometimes...and I don't think that guy Jesus would hold that against anyone.

<quoted text>Another theist with no answers or rebuttal and thus resorts to calling people they disagree with, as having some mental handicap.
Of course you have no evidence of your claim, but we know you are a faith based person.
That Atheists have serious mental issues has been confirmed by various Independent Studies .
As an aside; The postings by Atheists serve to confirm the validity of said studies.
Blaming others for having caused your mental problems does not resolve this very serious problem.
Denial is never the solution to real life problems

How about you just admit you don't know what in the hail you're talking about, even when changing one word from watch to support doesn't change the fact that this is the ramblings of one person's opinions that carries as much weight as a water bucket without a bottom.
I asked you one simple question of how you come to the conclusion that a non believer is vile and evil, and this is how you responded. The only thing you accomplished with that answer is proving to the world that a Christian mind can be a dangerous thing. Allow me to emphasize this once again... seek help before you hurt yourself or someone else. How about you get your facts straight before you go around making blanket statements about people you know absolutely nothing about!
You want to discuss the duties of the anal now? It expels feces, pretty much the same way your mouth does. Any questions?

He gave us the cure for cancer... read the Bible!
Where was I when the new conference broke about the Cure for Cancer! Thousands of people are dying daily, and you are telling me and the world, that all those attending physicians had to do was read the bible to get the cure? Is there any other revelations in this book that the world needs to know about? Of course you have 100% proof of what you say is true? Don't you?

As for a lotto win being more of a curse than a blessing, that is your opinion too. It depends on if the person had the mental capabilities of being responsible enough to handle such an immediate windfall. In your case, I agree, it would be a curse.
