Is there any interest in Owensboro for an atheist, agnostic or non-religious type community with get togethers? All the good things about church--the fellowship of like minded people, the community, the potluck dinners, etc. without the religion.

In larger cities many non-believers are getting together and having services. Is there enough interested people in Owensboro for something like that?

This is an interesting idea but there's no such thing as karma so let's go ahead and flush that silly little superstition down the toilet before we proceed.

The King James version of the New Testament was completed in 1611 by 8 members of the Church of England.

There were (and still are) no original texts to translate. The oldest manuscripts we have were written down hundreds of years after the last apostle died. There are over 8000 versions of these old manuscripts, with no two alike.

The King James translators used none of these, anyway. Instead, they edited previous translations to create a version their king and Parliament would approve.

So, 21st Century Christians believe the "Word of God" is a book edited in the 17th Century from 16th Century translations of 8000 contradictory copies of 4th Century scrolls that claim to be copies of lost letters written in the 1st Century.

That's not faith. That's insanity.

Very well said! I would like to add that most fanatical Christians study the Bible(idolize it) more than God. Religion has became a plight to mankind in the aspect that it has manipulated people. In the Bible Jesus never belonged to a religion; all he said was" know that GOD is one and to do unto others as you would want done unto you". To have fellowship with out religion is perfectly fine in my opinion.

Damn, this is easy, alright "non-thinkin fella"!!! What you have heard is a repeated point of fact that, incredibly, makes no sense. It is indeed a statement that I have heard a few times. This is a source of a Marxist propaganda ploy that "repeats a lie or misdirected truth", over and over, to where it is seems some people believe it to be true.

#1. King James version of the New Testament was completed in 1611 by 47 members .... not 8, dumbazz. Where do you get these facts, I knew this from the top of my head and I do not even use the King James version?

#2. Dah, yes, there are thousands of translations of the bible. Maybe, just maybe, it is because vast majority of the people in the world CAN NOT READ ANCIENT HEBREW OR ANCIENT GREEK.[AHHH, you say ....] And the Jews don't use any vowels!!!! There is no problem with this. It is the word of the true GOD. It does not have to be exact, 100% perfect. God ain't no scientist or secular humanist that must have everything exactly perfectly right. JUSTSO THE MESSAGE,LESSON, IDEAS ARE UNDERSTOOD.

#3. Oh...Oh ... here it comes! Don't you atheists, satanists, heathens, witches, etc explictly say that the old testament was written in medieval times??? Yes, yes, i've heard it MANY times. What's that up my sleeve?.... it's the Ace of Spades !!!!!! >>>>>The Dead Sea scrolls were written by a heathen group of intelligent hermit types. They died out a little after the birth of The Christ. Well, low and behold, they copied the Old Testament of the Jews (along with collections of many other texts). 60 years ago, these manuscripts were discovered (after being hid away for almost 2000 years) IT CORRELATES 98% to the authentic current version of the Old Testament currently held by the Israeli fathful!!!!!!

Now, I don't know, but maybe ... just maybe .... THAT'S WHY THERE ARE SEVERAL RELIGIONS! The Judeo-Christian God didn't promote one religion over another. He isn't no scientist. That is not important to him. Each person has a way to God that is different and personal. But each should be in a church that they feel brings them closer to The Christ.

The rest of your statement is ... well... strange.... and aren't you a fading cream my wife uses, I think she bought it at walgreens, Esoterica.

HA... HA... HA!

"Name-Calling, is a propaganda technique used to jade a personís or partyís opinion by using charged words to describe its adversary. This technique is used when a logical or productive debate can not be realized from the vantage point of the limited person issuing the remarks, most often done in frustration, due to lack of information or educated content to provide valuable and constructive debate."

LMFAO !!!!!! Thank you ... thank you very much!!!! Elvis has left the building!
