I read it all the time. My reading the book has what to do with your proof?
You claim the existence of something that has no evidence outside of written text. The burden of proof is on the one making the positive claim. But hey.....I understand......logic and religion don't mix.

Can you prove that leprechauns don't exist? If not, until you can prove they don't, we'll have to assume they exist also.....and anything else your imagination can conjure up. They all exist because no one can prove they don't. Gotcha.

actually its the gays who have given it up.
they gave up their dignity, respect, and most of all their eternal soul.
Speaking of dignity; how is it dignified to belong to a religion that teaches you that you are less than dog shit from the day you were born, and now you must grovel on your knees for the rest of your sorry life praying to the ceiling fan over a book of myths? All because your ego can't handle the fact that you are unimportant will cease to exist someday. Sad, deluded....and oh so undignified.

If christians read there own holy book there would be a lot more atheists. It's the ridiculousness of taking this book as literal truth that is driving up the number of peole marking "nones"when it comes to their religious affiliation

you don't believe in God or any religion so why would you care ?

i do believe in God and do belong to a religion so i do know who is responsible for the downfall of man out of Eden.
But that really doesn't matter much.
Not when i do know by the love and grace of God i can go to heaven.

You gays just can't wrap your head around it.

that link worked great for me.
BUT Jonah1 you missed my point or else you are trying to ignore it.
I'll type really slow for you try and keep up.
Since gays ( Jonah1 included ) don't believe in Christ they they should be excluded from the Christmas season.
Um, idiot, I don't believe in Christ because I'm an atheist, not because I'm gay. Sexual orientation and religion are two different things. The majority of gays are Christians.

Secondly, Christmas is commercial holiday. Christians don't own Christmas.
Christmas Spirit wrote:
They shouldn't get any time off from work for it. No bonus money. No gifts. No sharing of the spirit.
It should be just another work day for Jonah1 and the gays.
While the rest of us enjoy the birth of Christ.
Um, dear, you don't get a special day because your a Christian. You people and your believed privileges!!! I'll celebrate Christmas any damn way I see fit.
Christmas Spirit wrote:
Do you understand my point now Jonah1?
I understood what you were trying to say, it's just that it was stupid. Days off from work are provided by the employer, not chosen by the employees dear, so you point was stupid. Most companies have non discrimination clauses that cover religious beliefs and sexual orientation. An employer asking only gays or atheists to work on the holiday you falsely believe that Christains have ownership of would be committing a crime. It's the same reason that we don't ask whites to work on Martin Luther King Day, and the reason that we don't have only non Veterans work on Veterans Day.

Or do i have to dummy it down some more for you ?
It's already dummied down. I don't think you could make is dumber. But your welcome to try.

I don't want to demean you but you do seem kinda dense at times. Sniffing the poppers bottle too often ?
I'm not into drugs dude, but thanks. And the only one demeaned here is you, through your utter stupidity and hubris thinking you have ownership of a federal holiday!!!!

Sam God didn't answer you because you turned your back on him.
You have free will.
So all your wrong decisions are of your OWN making.
You get to the right decisions in life when you SINCERELY ask for God's help.
Even then God only gives you what you need and can handle.
As for God approving your homosexuality you need to prove that.
You gays always ask for proof.
Well now its your turn to PROVE IT.
But just like Jonah1 you'll ignore proving it because you know you can't prove it.
Dear, until you and your fundie friends can proof your Sky Santa exists, no one is obligated to prove what he supposedly does or does not like. Let us know when you can do that, ok dear?!

Um, dear, until you can prove your god exists, we're not obligated to disprove anything about the book you say he supposedly wrote. Once you introduce your god as a source of authority, the onus is on you to prove his existence first. Until you do, we not really interested in what YOU or your little Murder Manual say.

We don't care dear. But since its the only thing that you fundies seem to be able to talk about, in order to figure out the level of your insanity, we're forced to ask questions about it in order to see the lengths people like you will go jump through your mental gymnastics and in the end ultimately refuse to answer the question. Just like you did here. You're very predictable.

No, we can't wrap our heads around how people like you praise an entity that never once states that humans are entitled to fairness or justice, and a deity who changes his mind on the turn of a dime. You're god has made no guarantees that he won't change his mind later and when you all drive him crazy in your little Sky Castles!!!

Now you run along. I'm sure there is a bible study going on somewhere that you are missing. I'm sure the lesson will be "shove your god down the throats of people who never brought him up. Somewhere in the crowd there will be another weak person who wants to give up their money"!!!

yep i knew you can't prove Jack but you expect others to prove stuff to you.
BTW Christmas is OUR holiday because its a celebration of the birth of Christ.
What did you think it was for ?
It certainly is not for clowns like you. You belong back at work with your gay buddies..

Now you run along and let your mommy know you think you own Christmas!!! I'm sure she'll have some milk and cookies ready for you. Tell her how black people own Martin Luther King Day too, I'm sure she'll be fascinated with all your little theories. Me, I'm bored with your stupidity.

Your book says you are born a sinner. How does anyone do anything but cherry-pick your book of myths? Would you like the entire book with every post? Logic isn't your strong point is it?

Here's the truth about your bible! read it and weep! Why do all phony hating KKKristians lack 2 things,common logic and critical thought? Did they forget to get in line when they were handed out,or are they simply lacking the intelligence? I'm so very happy that we live in a "Secular society and NOT a theocracy,and I thank the almighty Zeus for that! LoL

Seems like religion and athesim are similar in that they are both beliefs that can not be proven by science.
