<quoted text>Does yours have a Book of Mormon on the back of it???
Another Gospel of Jesus Christ????

Joseph Smith wasn't around to preach his teachings???
Can you show me anything in the KJV about Kolob?
You said earlier... "Never give up on the ones you love!"
You guys do great footwork, I wished the Body of Christ did more!
I have a KJV and a Book of Mormon Another TESTAMENT of Jesus Christ.

We claim to be the restoration of the gospel that Jesus Christ taught while on earth. Since the death of the Apostles the "falling away" from His church began, just as Jesus told us would happen. He also told us there would be a restitution of all things before His return. The only difference between the LDS church and mainstream Christianity is that we believe these prophesies have occurred. This falling away happened early on and is evident at the Council of Nicea where they decided on pivotal doctrine like what books to include and exclude from God's word, and even the nature of God, method of baptism, importance of priesthood, etc.
So if most non Catholics, and about 1/4 of Catholics believe the Catholic Church is not the true church of Jesus Christ, then neither are any Protestant churches, as the scriptures say you cannot grow good fruit from a dead tree.
The founders of some of the largest Protestant churches acknowledged this very topic and admitted that the true church did not exist any more. Roger Williams even said that unless angels and apostles came down from heaven to restore it, it would not be on the earth. The difference is, we believe this has taken place.

You confirm this with each post you make that concerns science. Then you have the nerve to claim that you do not demean science.
Your creationist ideas are blocking the education of our children. The propaganda you keep putting out confuses the kids. They get to a point where they think the flintstones is based upon a reality.
See this one?(now if true-sounds like an actually legite gripe going on there!)

Woman says she was fired for refusing Scientology
She claims she was forced to take religious courses that included screaming at ashtrays and staring at co-workers.

At Florida's Dynamic Medical Services, that's just part of the Scientology-based status quo, according to a complaint filed by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission earlier this month.

Rommy Sanchez, whom Dynamic is accused of firing after she stopped attending the Church of Scientology, completed enough company-mandated courses to be taken to the church by a fellow Dynamic employee. Those "courses" are where all the shoving, prolonged staring and ashtray screaming came in.

After completing those tasks, Sanchez was also required to connect herself to an electro-psycho-meter&#8203 ;, or "e-meter," and take a "purification course" that consisted of jogging on a treadmill and taking 20 pills she was told were "vitamins," according to the complaint. When she wanted to quit, the Dynamic employee who ran the courses "tried to convince her that the course was good for her, that it would change her mind and detox her."

The EEOC is seeking back pay for Sanchez and another employee who was fired for refusing to participate, as well as compensation for any workers who were subjected to Dynamic Medical's "hostile work environment."

Beatriz Biscardi, an attorney representing the employees, told The Huffington Post that the employees were clear that the courses were associated with Scientology. Dynamic issued a statement denying the EEOC's "baseless allegations." The Church of Scientology, meanwhile, has remained mum about the case.

The allegedly berated ashtray also remained silent.

Didn't want the one ultersound that was imposed upon me, it served no useful purpose at all that time, except to alleviate some headache and aggravation that yet more "science" prior itself had been causing, for no good reason, other than INcomplete, rather skewed "algorithmic theories" that were highly questionable.
It just caused me to have to try and wrap (for hypothetical example) a basketball in a golf ball sized wrapping for temporary transporting. Good thing I didn't listen to and shopping based on the same it lol.
Those Somerset doctors sound pretty brutal. They have no business abducting you for sonar experiments, but don’t let them scare you away if you need them to treat you for a serious medical condition.

In order:
No. My beliefs don't need defending, as I believe in reality (i.e. not some garbage that I only believe because some superstitious desert dweller scribbled it on parchment millenia ago).
You don't know what contradict means. Or what faith means. Buy a dictionary.
You should be neither impressed nor intimidated. You should realize that you sound stupid and consequently unf*#k yourself.
No. You don't believe in science, therefore you should either live without its benefits or acknowledge that you are just another stupid hypocrite (as everyone else already recognizes you).
Unfounded stupid attack. Do better, moron.
The intellectual content of what you posted,can possibly be measured with a nano gauge.

I do not base my realizations on the opinions of Atheists.
If Atheists consider me stupid and hypocritical,based on the source,I consider that to be a great compliment.
To lend any credibility to any opinions given by those whom I would not trust to mow my lawm,would be absurd,Wouldn't you Agree?

I believe that this insatiable desire that you Atheists have,constantly making God a topic of conversation and constantly addressing the subject of faith,as if in search of something..

Freud was an atheist, perhaps you meant Jung? If you are going to cite a field of science, be it psychology, sociology, biology, geology, physics, etc., it would behoove you to read a book that has credible contributors - and one that was written within the last 1600 years.

<quoted text>We tell you constantly why we oppose blind belief. One reason is the demeaning attitude towards science it clearly creates.
I cannot prove god is a myth, no more than you can prove Zeus is a myth.
How or why the big bang went down as it did have no bearing on my atheism. For some reason it seems to have a bearing on your faith though.
But for some reason, how and why god came to be has no bearing on your faith. The contradiction is curious to me.
I have not asked,nor do I need ,for you to tell me about blind belief. I am not afflicted by it,YOU ARE
Well,I would not call it blind,the appropriate word would be FOOLISH
I don't believe zeus ever existed,therefore I do not waste my time talking about something I do not believe in,,unlike you and the other Atheists....
If,I were constantly challenging Zeus existence,given that I do not believe he ever existed,could lead to some people questioing my sanity, or concluding as Freud did,that my subconscious is sending me a message

You're a brazen heathen who knows no shame. I suppose you also have a history of removing the labels from pillows or go swimming with reckless abandon without waiting a full hour after eating.

Yes, blah blah blah. I know you are, but what am I.

You believe in things that have absolutely no evidence to support them; the people you are arguing with do not. That is completely factual and nothing further can be said on the topic. Every time you try to say something to the contrary, you lie.

No, stupid. If there was a veritable army of morons telling everyone that, seriously, Zeus is the only way and saying that Zeus should be taught in school (as fact), you'd be up in arms. We'd never hear the end of it. THAT is an apt comparison. Not your bullsh!t. Science, freedom from religion, and freedom of thought are completely under assault by militant Christians in this country. We, and a large part of the rest of the world, are disgusted by it all.

So, please, drop the weak "your mind is telling you something" or "you're crazy" crap. Every scientifically minded person is completely right to fight the propagation of your completely unsubstantiated claims and parasitic/oppressive religions.

Fetus and child are two different classifications.
So all the people arrested, prosecuted and Jailed for Homicide for killing a fetus should be released from jail and given new trials for simple assault with bodily harm to the mothers right?

The mother's wishes are what those rulings are based on, not whether it was a fetus or child.

When one expresses himself in explicit terms,the responses one receives are indicative as to whether you were correctly understood.
The responses on this website,specifically those of the Atheists and so called ,former believers,has left no doubt in my mind,that they are totally misinformed and are unequipped to understand the topics that I address.
Their non related answers speak volumes.
They keep regurgitating the same canned propaganda,keep asking for the same evidence and keep complaining once they get it
So,it matters not how they are addressed,they will not understand.
Now,that I know of,you have seldom responded to anything I posted,under the name KUDA,other than today...
And keep in mind,many times ,Ichoose not to respond.....
Continuously responding to the same repetitive gibberish and nonsense often espoused here gets rather stale and boring...
